Personal History Sykon was born on Vulcan in 2244. He is the second child of Sran, an architect and T’Elka a stellar cartographer and senior research fellow of the Vulcan Science Academy. He has one sibling, an elder brother, Sytar, who is a teacher.

The family lived in the Raak Province, a coastal area that borders the Voroth Sea, one of Vulcan’s few bodies of open water. The Voroth is known for fierce storms and rough seas.

With highly educated parents and a mother who was a respected member of the Vulcan Science Academy it was only natural that Sykon would be channeled into a career in the sciences from an early age.

A dedicated and hard-working student he was always within the top five percent of his classes. As well as his regular education his parents also engaged him in learning about their own specialisms.

Sykon’s great grandparents, on both sides of the family, were early members of the Syrannite group, who fully embraced the teachings of Surak and rebelled against the Vulcan government in the 22nd Century and brought about the Vulcan Reformation in 2154. If Vulcans admitted to such emotions, then it could be said that they were proud of their family’s heritage and role in changing Vulcan culture.

Further back, in Vulcan’s more passionate and violent past his ancestors were members of prominent warrior clans before accepting the calm of logic and reason. Sykon father ensured he was taught the ancient Vulcan skills and he trained in Suus Mahna with a Master of the defensive martial art.

This personal heritage and a trip to view the giant statues of Vulcan warriors overlooking the lava fields of the Fire Plains, gave young Sykon an early interest in history, which grew into side studies in archeology and anthropology. While at school he was fortunate to visit an archeological dig at the T’Karath Sanctuary in the desert canyon of Vulcan’s Forge.

This experience of the harsh conditions, scorching temperatures, electrical sandstorms and geomagnetic instabilities scare food, water or shelter stood him in good stead when, at sixteen, he returned to Vulcan’s Forge and the Plains of Blood to complete his maturity initiation ritual, the Kahs-Wan. This is a ten-day survival test, where Vulcan teens are left alone without food, water or weapons. Many do not make it the first try, some do not survive at all.

Passing the grueling test brought about a change in the young Vulcan. He developed a deep interest in his family’s martial heritage. He persuaded his parents to allow him to continue his studies in Suus Mahna and other forms of Vulcan martial arts. They saw it as beneficial to his development, providing him with both physical and mental discipline, and encouraged his studies.

However, matters came to a head when, at twenty-five, he decided not to sit the entrance exam for the Science Academy and instead informed his parents he was going to be applying for Starfleet.

His father while disappointed was accepting of his son’s decision. His mother however refused to countenance Sykon’s decision and their relationship deteriorated. She did not attend his graduation ceremony and they rarely speak.
