Personality & Traits

General Overview Eelim is quiet and reserved around those he does not know. Like all Cardassians he mistrusts those around him but not for fear of loosing glory or position but because in his life he’s learned that even those closest to him could be against him. He is eloquent, as all Cardassians are, poetic, and a gentle soul with a warrior’s heart. He has a strong sense of right and wrong, and a devotion to honour and justice. He has strong opinions and will question orders that he feels are wrong morally or against Starfleet regulations. He has a wonderful sense of humour and a sharp intellect.
Strengths Galan is a good security officer, very detail oriented, very by the book, able to think on his feet, a perfectionist (which can be a weakness too since he’s very hard on himself). He is very good at guiding people, patient, up to date with all Starfleet protocols, and very good at defensive shuttle craft flying and problem solving. He is a good problem solver, and very organized.
Weaknesses Food wise: Chocolate;
Person wise: his little sister Lag, his brother Saul and his friend Luma Myra
Personality wise: Galan is very hard on himself. He holds himself to a higher standard then others. He is claustrophobic somewhat and a bit of a gramophone although he might not admit it. When he is feeling bored he does go into day dream mode. He completes tasks on time but he has trouble saying no and ends up doing other peoples work and can get prone to burn out. He hates public speaking, unlike other Cardassians. He does tend to be blunt and to the point. He is not one to baby people.
Ambitions He is driven by the need to protect those around him; his crew, his friends, and the Federation, the only true home he’s known. He wants to rebuild his life, be a good Starfleet officer, and work up the courage to tell Luma that he loves her.
Hobbies & Interests Painting, working out, reading, theatre of different worlds, studying history of all worlds, meditation and earth cars. Since he read about cars he has studied them and has a holo program that lets him drive fast and drift whenever he wants.
Orientation Heterosexual
Language(s) Spoken Cardassian, Bajoran, Standard Federation, Romulan

Personal History 2357 BORN

2363 – 2373 - Entered school on Cardassia,

Eelim was a good student and always at the top of his class. From an early age he showed an aptitude for writing Cardassian poetry and for art. He is a great painter and by the time he hit 16 the Cardassian Art institute had already held two exhibits of his art. Although his mother Nilani was proud of him, his father Gul Galan was not. He wanted a warrior son, not an artist, and as a result he forced him to go to combat school.

In 2373 the Dominion war was in full swing. On one particular day Eelim was walking back from school when he saw some Cardassians brining in some Romulan and Starfleet prisoners. He’d always felt ashamed of his father’s involvement in the Bajoran occupation and was also deeply ashamed of the Cardassian involvement with the Dominion. On that day, even though he was a gentle soul he realized there comes a time where one has to stand up for what one believes in. On that day, the day that he saw the Romulan and Starfleet prisoners, he made the decision to fight. When he saw a Cardassian solider strike and older Bajoran prisoner in a Starfleet uniform he acted. Before he’d known it he’d disarmed all the guards and had freed the Romulans and Starfleet personnel helping them escape and hide in his family’s summer home, which was now empty.

He’s secured a shuttle for them that would take them off Cardassia with the help of Gul Derat, an enemy of his father. The man he’d saved, Luma Teprin, took Eelim into his home knowing that if Eelim stayed he’d be executed for helping Stafleet and the Romulans.

A few months later a Romulan commander, Kalar, who’d also been part of the group Eelim had rescued, found a place for Eelim on his ship during the rest of the Dominion war. When the war was over in 2375 Eelim stayed with the Romulan commander for another 3 years learning combat, flying, and strategy and then returned to Bajor. In 2378 when he returned to Bajor, which was now a part of the Federation, he learned that Luma Teprin had been killed by Gul Galan and his daughter, Luma Myra, had been kidnapped. Determined to honour his friend’s memory and rescue Myra, Teprin’s daughter, he set our for Cardassia. He found that Myra had been taken to a Cardassian penal colony. During his effort to rescue her he found out that his brother Saul and sister Laga had been sent to the colony, by their father as punishment for standing up for Eelim and what he’d done. He busted all three out, with the help of Kalar, and ran back to Bajoran space.

When he got back to Bajor he his Romulan friend arraigned for his brother and sister to go with him. Luma Myra, however, would not go. He couldn’t leave her on Bajor knowing that his father might seek revenge. He decided he’d enrol in Starfleet and he took Myra with him.

At first she stayed with him feeling responsible for her family turning his life upside down but then she fell in love with him and he, fell in love with her, although they refused to tell one another.
Starfleet History 2380 -2385 Starfleet Academy (Entered the academy at the age of 23)
Studied to be a Tactical / Security officer with a major in strategic planning and took a year of fighter flying.
Medical History He is generally healthy, he does have a few broken ribs, and he has broken his leg and arm twice but has healed up pretty nice. He does have a scar on his back from a knife wound that he sustained while busting his family out of the Cardassian penal colony.
Service Record In 2386 he got his first assignment. He and Myra knew the only way they could stay together is if they said they were engaged and that is what they said. The fake relationship ensured that she would travel with him. They are in love but stubbornly continue to hide the fact, from one another.
