Personality & Traits

General Overview Savin doesn't adhere too much to the code of 'non-emotionalism' for Vulcans. On occasion he is known to offer the smallest hint of a smile, and his feelings are often displayed in his eyes. He is fluent in sign language, always making use of it without being consciously aware of it. He is completely deaf, though he is adept at giving off the impression that he isn't, so long as someone is facing his way and has his complete attention.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strength: Easygoing, ability to calm people, able to hide his deafness, touch-telepath
Weakness: prone to anger, deaf, can't swim, his love for Captain Amanda Williams

Savin's biggest strength is his ability to relate to emotion as he himself has learned to deal with them due to his deaf nature. He relies on expression and body language to deduct another's meaning, if he can't directly see what they're saying.

Though not afraid of it, Savin doesn't like complete darkness as he doesn't like being robbed of yet another sense. Complete darkness robs him of his sight, which he relies heavily upon to function like any normal starfleet officer.

What he does fear, is being rendered completely senseless, robbed of both sight, smell and his empathy/telepathy.
Ambitions Though severely hindered by his disability, Savin doesn't let this daunt him and endeavours to be one of the best counselors in his field.

Some day, learn how to swim while not losing his sense of direction when in the water. He was excused from learning how to swim when it became apparent that he couldn't do more but keep himself afloat. As soon as he got under water, he lost his sense of direction/balance and panicked.
Hobbies & Interests In his free time, Savin enjoys playing baseball, a game he picked up on Earth and grew rather fond of. He isn't exactly good at batting, but does offer a mean pitch. Like his father and adopted sister, Savin is an adept user of sign language, as his aunt is deaf and he himself is also deaf.

Personal History Savin is born in 2360, on Vulcan, just outside one of the major cities. He is the eldest son of Saryn and T'Ris.

During his childhood, Savin picked up a fondness for caring for animals, and has always had pets, until he joined his father on the Challenger, as a medical apprentice. While he attended highschool, he was captain of the school's baseball team.

Savin shares his father's intolerance for lactose and is allergic to fish. Adept at sign language due to necessary use from an early age on, when his hearing defect was established. It is an inoperable defect, though when the opportunity would arise, Savin would politely refuse the offer, as his physical limitation is part of who he is.

He is relatively unconscious to his use of sign language, but when made aware he will take the effort to reduce his motioning signals if necessary. Someone who is unaware of his physical condition, would never guess unless told. However, when coming in from a blind spot, it may appear as though the young Vulcan is ignoring the person who talks to him, though wholly unintentional. He will then often resort to the little white lie, that he was preoccupied and will apologise for the inattention.

As he applied to Starfleet medical, Savin originally wanted to become a surgeon but during his first year found he was more adept at being a counselor. Despite his inability to hear, his tutors still found him a good listener as he was good at keeping his attention on a particular person, and they encouraged him to change fields.

Due to his inability, and his carreer switch, Savin took slightly longer to go through the academy, and graduated at age twenty-four. He spent three years on Earth refining his counseling techniques, while taking only station bound or planet bound assignments.

He was en-route to the Tarmline Cluster (Delta Quadrant), which lay next to a metaphasic nebula to assist in a dispute between warring factions, when the ship was attacked by Borg and the crew assimilated. He managed to hide away and remain undiscovered after taking out a few drones himself, though he did so in a badly injured state. He is one of the survivors of the attack.
