Lieutenant Raygi Benyan
Name Raygi Benyan
Position Chief Medical Officer
|Eye Colour||Cobalt blue|
|Hair Colour||Sandy brown|
|Physical Description||Except for the expected horizontal nasal ridges, Raygi Benyan really does not have distinguishing facial marks. No scars or blemishes are present on his handsome face, which is framed by short sandy brown hair and accentuated by piercing cobalt blue eyes. Raygi has a slightly muscular build, perhaps a bit more so than the average physician.|
Personality & Traits
|Personality Description||Raygi is an excellent conversationalist, staying well versed in a variety of current topics to keep things flowing freely. He loves interacting with others on all levels, which is probably why he is almost never seen alone. Raygi’s friendly and approachable manner have served him well in the medical field.|
|Ambitions, Hobbies and Interests||For the time being, Raygi is focusing on being the best Doctor he can. In the future, he would like to do research at Starfleet Medical.
Raygi considers himself a sort of amateur anthropologist; he enjoys watching people and how they interact with one another. He believes that learning about a culture in this manner is far more effective than studying a computer file. Raygi also enjoys cooking, and he tries to put interesting spins on dishes native to his world. He has a particular fondness for Regaylian chocolates. He is an individual that relishes the fine dining experience, taking time to savor and appreciate the complexities and/or subtleties of each individual bite of food.
|Strengths and Weaknesses||Raygi’s experiences as a youth and in the Bajoran Militia gave him an excellent background in emergency field medicine. He is quick on his feet and is a seemingly tireless worker. He is focused like a laser on providing the best patient care experience possible.
Conversely,Raygi is comparatively weak in the medical research department. He is not known as an innovator, and prefers to stick with established methodology. This more conservative approach has limited his advancement potential.
|Family||Raygi is his parents’ only child. His parents sent him to live with his Aunt Marra in a small mountain village when Raygi was only nine years old. His parents joined the Resistance, and Raygi never saw them again. He has a small number of extended family in Hedrikspool Province but Raygi considers his Aunt Marra to be his only true family.|
|Pre-Starfleet History||Raygi’s parents were farmers in rural Hedrikspool Province when their only child was born in 2350. The Cardassians and the Occupational Government left the region largely to its own devices, since it was sparsely populated and mostly farmland. As long as the farms were meeting their production quotas, they saw no reason to waste resources in Hedrikspool. In the winter of 2358, particularly harsh weather accompanied by Squill Blight brought farming production in the province to a near halt. This brought the wrath of the Cardassians in full force. Civilians began disappearing seemingly at random, and sometimes entire villages were burned to the ground. Raygi’s parents felt that the Prophets were calling them into action against the Cardassians, so they took their son to a small mountain town to stay with his Aunt Marra. When he was seventeen, Raygi joined a Resistance cell himself and quickly became indispensable as their field medic; although little training was available, Raygi proved very adept at using the antiquated equipment and meager medical supplies. The Cardassians withdrew two years later, and Raygi decided to apply to the Bajoran Militia Medical Academy as part of their inaugural class. He graduated in 2377 and began a two year residency aboard Starbase 325. Raygi was amazed at the sophistication of the Starfleet equipment and their seemingly inexhaustible resources. Upon completing the residency requirements, Raygi was promoted to First Lieutenant and stationed on the Bajoran cruiser Orb of Peace. He stayed aboard that vessel until Bajor officially joined the Federation in 2382, when most of the Militia was folded into Starfleet.|
Starfleet History & Service Records
|Starfleet Service History||Raygi was sent to Earth in 2382 to attend an abbreviated training program, one specifically designed for incoming officers from allied military. Raygi graduated from that program in 2384, and was given the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade. He was sent as a staff physician to the newly commissioned Sovereign class USS Chancellor. Diligence and hard work earned Raygi the Assistant CMO position in 2386; following his promotion to Lieutenant in 2387, Raygi sought his own medical department to command. In 2388, he was reassigned as CMO of the USS Solaria.|
