Laerdia is a small planet located in the Delta Quadrant.
Laerdians are a tribal people who can live for several centuries.
There are seven tribes coexisting on Laerdia. In ancient history the
seven tribes constantly fought for possession of land. Each tribe had
their own specialty or advantage and they used them against each other
to gain their military advances.
When alien invasion threatened their world, they learned to
work together to fight their common foe. When the aliens were defeated
they continued their peace treaty and worked together to make a better
world for all tribes. They used their differences to continue improving
the world around them and increasing their defenses against off world
attack. They learned everything they could from the alien technologies
and developed their own to match anything they came in contact with.
Certain tribes had a knack for learning foreign material, and expanding
Omaie was a general for his tribe; in charge of military
training and special ops missions. He was proficient in stealth and
hand to hand combat. The planetary defenses included ships. Omaie and
his team would face alien attackers on the planet, or find their way
onto the alien ships to take them by force.
Omaie was well known for his victories. But with war, there
are always loses. He hated to lose any of his people. But the death
that got to him the most was not due to war at all, but to disease. His
mother had always been a grounding force in his life; and when she died
of an incurable disease Omaie was devastated. He retired from his army
and went to study in the temple of OcuNida. There he apprenticed with
a medicine man who acted as counselor and doctor to tribe members.
By the time Starfleet found Laerdia and met with the 7
Councilmen--the leaders of the planet--Omaie had become a medicine man
in his own right. Laerdian Leaders liked the idea of the federation.
They found their mission to be honorable and worthy and desired to join
the federation. As part of their induction into the federation they
wanted to send 7 individuals to join Starfleet and represent Laerdia in
the federation. Each tribe chose one person to send. Omaie was the
favored choice from his tribe.
Omaie did not want to leave his home or his practice as
medicine man, but he was obligated by his duty to serve his tribe to
accept their desire for him to join Starfleet. Not to mention the fact
that his father was the leader of his tribe and he put great pressure on
him to go; informing Omaie that Fate herself had told him it was
Omaies destiny to go.
With a heavy heart he left and joined Starfleet. He continued
his mindset as medicine man and majored in medicine focusing on the
career of Counseling.
When he graduated from the academy he accepted a position on
the USS Independence as primarily a Counselor with the ability to
function as a medical officer when needed. He prefers more alternative
medicine to the typical Starfleet medicinal remedies but will use
Starfleet medicine when applicable.
Omaie finds the Starfleet Uniforms to be too restricting, and so he takes advantage of his special privileges as Counselor to wear alternate attire. He normally wears a cream colored shirt, with a low V neck, a tan colored leather vest, and black non-restrictive pants. In addition, he always wears his necklace that holds the tooth of a Dra'tu (Laerdia's menacing version of a mountain lion), and if he can help it he is never very far from his metal staff--which conveniently folds into a foot long metallic bar weapon that hangs from his belt.
sensitive to telepathic activity--Omaie cannot read un-projected
thoughts, but he can receive thoughts that are directly sent to him or
that are loudly projected in general. He can sense when others are
conversing telepathically. But typically he just senses the
emotions/stresses of those around him.
a special ability involving bio-electricity and thermal heat. He has
the ability to use the energies within his body to project thermal or
electrical energy, usually from his hands. There are varying degrees of
energy output he can project, and there are varying focus and intensity
of the heat/flame he can produce from his hands. It is one of the
special abilities that he was given by Fate, the Goddess of his people.
He has trained throughout his life to control the ability and has
gotten quite good at using it efficiently and effectively, especially
when he remains focused. This came in handy when he was the leader of
his special forces; infiltrating alien ships that were attacking their
world. He could affect the alien technology; cause overloads, etc. His
armor and weapons of choice (such as his staff) were specifically made
to enhance his abilities--they work with his unique ability and reacts
to the different frequencies and intensities he projects through his
hands. This enables him to do more with his abilities without draining
his needed energy for battle.
