Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Toran has been described as "the more polite a Klingon can most likely get" Indeed some people actually find his personality a bit off putting at least at first.
Polite, Urbane, Well read and spoken. Toran has built up a reputation among the Klingons as a diplomat who is willing to put up with a great deal to benefit the Empire. And then as a Federation Diplomat famed for fairness and the ability to consider all sides interests.
While this "Tame" personality can at times cause him trouble with some of in the empire. Most no his limits and wont cross them. And the few that have crossed those lines have lead to Toran oft respected and sometimes derided moniker of "The tame killer"
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Toran has the often missing Klingon virtues of patients and empathy. This had lead to a attitude of not causing unwarranted conflict.
"Understanding your enemies reason for conflict often stops one from killing a Allie they have yet to make."
From the aspect of physical strengths. Toran is a large and sturdy Klingon. And surprisingly fast and agile for his age and size.
The chief weaknesses demonstrated by Toran are some times supporting traits of "wander lust" and "a weakness for woman"
Toran get's bored if left to do the same thing to often. The ultimate reason that he became a diplomat. And he has a well known weakness for interested women. A weakness only weakened while he was married. This trait being so well known that governments often tried to exploit and limit it's effect.
|Ambitions||Toran was in his past a rather ambitious and driven man. But after achieving a number of goals he has settled into being a bit of a hedonist by Klingon standards. His career as a Diplomat has tempered both of these traits, giving him a real drive to benefit the Federation, Empire and by extent other groups around the Quadrant.
His step daughter also takes up a great deal of his energy at the moment also. The middle aged Klingon being almost comically wrapped around the girls finger.

The boy enjoyed a more or less standard Klingon childhood but tended to have a bit more contact with individuals outside of the Empire the most, showing a keen interest in Academic pursuits even while growing to be a large and strong Kligon.
Toran grew to adult hood and then spent some time serving aboard ship under the command of his father and older brothers. Before moving on to further his education and enter the Diplomatic Service of the Klingon Empire. Staying in this position for some time building quite the reputation for being a effective negotiator, and serving as the Klingon Diplomatic Minister to Bajor for a short time.
On the outbreak of conflict between the Klingon and Cardassians and then The Dominion war. Serving with the ships of his house until the end of the conflict, A good number of his siblins and his father being killed in the conflict Toran understood a time of morning before returning to Diplomatic work.

It was while at this diplomatic station that he met is wife Jobia. A widowed farmer living directly across for his own residence. The two sharing a great love to Bajoran art and music. And Toran learning to rather enjoy aspect of agricultural work.
The two stayed married for ten years before Jobia passed away from complication caused by a poorly treated childhood illness. Leaving Toran to raise his step daughter Jera.
