Strengths He is very tall for most Tandarans and slightly intimidating. However, not the case compared with humans. He is proficient at several hand to hand fighting styles.
Weaknesses He is sometimes too distrusting of others. He does not let anyone get close to his emotional level. He does have a hesitation about physical contact like shaking hand or a hand on shoulder, etc., but that does not hinder him from preforming his duty.
Ambitions To be the best Security Tactical Officer. To one day be able to restore the family honor and wear their Basque proudly.
Hobbies & Interests Tan-Kei champion with a level 4 compentancy. Tan-Kei (tan ky) is a hand to hand fighting style on Tandar Prime. Its intent is more defensive than offensive. 80% of the technique is blocks, sweeps by leg or arm, and take downs that are intended to immobilize the assailant. The remaining 20% are strikes which focus on body nerve centers to temporary paralyze those parts of the assailants body. Since leaving Tandar Prime Thereon has found an interest in hand to hand fighting weapons and has a large collection. From the ancient Kabar of Earth to a Bat'leth of Kronos. He tranes each day to use what ever weapon he can pick up to defend himself.
Vernacular Tandarans do not use compound words; can not, will not, he will.
Orientation Heterosexual
Language(s) Spoken Tandaran, Galactic Standard, and working on Klingon.

Personal History Loraine, Theron's oldest sister, had been like a second mother to him and his twin brother. When they were born his older brothers, Chrithos & Krenner, were 4 and 6 turns, respectfully. They were quite a handful and their mother, Abigale Rhodes, depended on the young 9 year old Loraine to help with the babies.

Growing up with a twin is very rare with the Tandaran people. Twins are born, but always looked down upon, because one of them usually dies by the age of two turns. Doctors and Scientist have not been able to determine why.

Many years from now a theory will come to find that Tandaran twins have a symbiotic link. Because most babies are usually placed in separate beds as normal children, the twins find themselves apart from an important part of themselves. The distance weighs heaving on their psychi and they give up hope and loose that connection. It is believed that the weaker twins usually dies from that loss.

Abigale Rhodes wanted to do everything she could to prevent her boys from becoming another statistic. She and Loraine held them, always giving positive attention and good child stimulation, fresh air and sunshine. Their home was small at the time and the twins slept together in the same bed for many years out of necessity. Little did they know at the time, that keeping them together had been the trick.

At one point, at age 7, they were given separate beds. However, most mornings Abigale would find them both in the same bed. She did not feel it as a problem. It later worked out fine in their adolescent years and they preferred to have their own space. But that special bond held with them.

There was know known telepathic link among any Tandarans, but Theron and Stephon seemed to have a link of some kind; one would sense fear and later find his brother had been cornered by some bullies, or one would feel happy for no reason, and later find his brother eating a piece of pie.

As boys, the twins would run and play together in the woods behind their home. Many grand adventures took place in that forest. One day Theron was eating a snack in the kitchen and all of a sudden yelled out in pain. He also could not move his right arm without great discomfort. They went to look for Stephon and found him in the woods, where he had fallen out of a tree and broken his right arm.

A 16th birthday is a very special time in a boy's life, but for Tandaran twins to both celebrate it together was unheard of. Unfortunately, it was also a day overshadowed by an even great tragedy. On that same day, the local power plant had a major explosion, killing hundreds of townfolk. After an investigation, it was determined that their father, K'Terrance Rhodes, would be blamed for this deadly accident. It was determined to not be intentional, so criminal charges were not placed, but the family Basque was taken by the Central Command for the shame Terrance Rhodes had caused. However, all data concerning the investigation was considered Level 8 Secret to the Tandar Prime Central Command.

Theron's Father will not speak about it. The Honorary Basque was taken from him and his descendants. The tatoo that Theron bore on his left inner forearm, that he was proud to have received just a year earlier, would have to be removed or always covered in public. For a Tandaran to misrepresent himself is punishable by immediate incarceration until the Central Command could review the case.

Because of the loss of the Basque the attempts at attending a university of higher educations became fruitless. Acceptance was denied at every university on Tandar Prime, not to mention those rejected from the other world in the Tandar Sector, caused Theron and Stephon to consider other possibilities. Theron had heard that the first of their race had been accepted to Starfleet Academy, following Tandar's acceptance into the United Federation of Planets. Theron had very little belief that this would be allowed by the Tandaran Central Command. Yet, after Terrance Rhodes, his father, spoke to the Council, behind closed doors, they allowed Theron and Stephon to attend Starfleet Academy and retain their Citizenship.
