Yazrill Tanan always enjoyed the sciences. Whether it was studying xenobiology and physics in school, or listening to their father talk about how things had gone at the hospital that he worked at, they knew that when they grew up that was going to be their career in some manner. They also knew that when they were old enough they would be submitting their name with the thousands of others to potentially become a symbiote host, though the odds were low that they would get picked.
When Yazrill was twelve, their family (along with others) was sent to a fairly isolated colony, as they were in need of medical help to help with a disease. What they discovered was a plague. Thankfully, one that the Trill seemed to be immune to. However, the devastation was immense. And the way that those who were dead were treated spoke to Yazrill. For while they understood that the amount of people dying meant that there just wasn’t enough space for the bodies to be stored properly, they wished that they could change it. They also found themself drawn to the people conducting the autopsies, fascinated by what they did.
It was on the way back to Trill, that they decided decisively what focus in science they wanted and where they wanted to go for training when they were old enough. So they threw themselves into their studies, and asked their father for his medical books. Wanting to learn everything that they needed, and get the needed grades, so that they would be accepted into Starfleet and be able to follow the career path that they wanted. And it was a path that their parents thought was a good idea. They fast tracked the rest of their schooling, so that they applied, and got into, the Trill Science Ministry, a leading institute of science in the Federation. To begin the training needed to become a doctor, and more specifically, focus on medical examiner.
Around their sixteenth birthday they applied to the Symbiosis Commision to become a host. Within a few months of sending it, they were became an initiate under the supervision of a field docent, who evaluated them and their suitability for joining. The field docent worked with them for a good period of their late teens. And then sent their letter of recommendation (or not) to the Commision.
At twenty-two they sent in their application to the Starfleet Academy, with the knowledge of whether or not they would get their symbiote soon. And they sat with their thumbs twiddling, hoping for both, fearing that they would get neither. Which wouldn’t be the end of the world, they knew that if they got neither they would continue their training on Trill and go from there. And if they only got one of the two, they would still go with that.
As it was, they got their acceptance from the Symbiosis Commision first, which created its own anxiety. What if they weren’t actually able to handle the process, what if the symbiote was too strong and overpowered their mind. It was something that they had discussed with their field docent, and they knew that there were tools to help them through it. But it was still a worry that played in the back of their mind. One thing that came with being accepted, it meant that they were able to ‘request’ a specific symbiote if they wanted to, and all they asked was that it was one that potentially had some medical knowledge, knowing that it would give them an extra edge.
The symbiote, Vais, that Yazrill received was fairly young by symbiote standards, but still had a few lifetimes on Yazrill. The joining and the ceremony of zhian'tara went fairly smoothly, allowing Yazrill to get to know Vais and those who had been joined previously. Waking up that first time, joined and alone, was everything that Yazrill had hoped it would be, though they knew that it was not always going to be. That learning to listen to that ‘other voice’ without losing their train of thought, and becoming familiar with the new changes would take time.
Shortly after everything had smoothed down, they received their acceptance from the Academy and started the trip to Earth. And for all they had travelled offplanet with their family a few times, the knowledge that ‘soon’ their home would be in space was exhilarating.
The Academy wasn’t a let down, though it wasn’t exactly what they had thought it would be. The days were long, the work hard, and most of the people friendly. While living on Trill, the then Yazrill Tanan had rarely gone out with friends, working hard to get the opportunities that they got. On Earth Yazrill Vais got to explore more of the social aspect of living in such a diverse community. As well as work shifts in medical and autopsy.
Once they graduated, they were assigned to the USS Bradbury as one of the attending physicians, which wasn’t exactly what they wanted to do, but it gave them experience out in the field.
After the ‘incident’ in 2258, they saw a posting was open on the USS Enterprise for a medical examiner, and they applied for the spot. Waiting for that was almost more nerve wracking than waiting for Vais, or at least that’s how it seemed. Once the transfer request as accepted, they made the switch to the Enterprise and are now getting acclimated to the ship and its crew.
