Rank Lieutenant JG
|Character Quote||I hate these clothes...|
|Eye Color||bright blue|
|Physical Description||S'hib is a humanoid Bipedal equine, He is slender but muscular, able to lift a surprising amount despite his otherwise effeminate physique.
The Sequus have been described by Starfleet officers although standing on two legs, Resembling closely with earth Equine populations, Though somehow at the same time completely alien.
Both sexes are noted as having long muscular legs which are similar in appearance to the hind legs of an earth horse, This also includes large hooves at the end of each extremity.
Their hands are four-fingered and evolved to be just as dexterous as other sentient mammalian species.
Males within the race are known to be broader and physically larger compared to their female counterparts, but only by a small margin, Whereas the females have less pronounced and more rounded features, typically having a shorter nasal bone and overall shorter length to their skull.
Skin and overall hair colours and pattern can vary greatly from each individual Sequus to the point it is used as a form of universal identification similar to how every human fingerprint is unique, Hair length can also vary greatly depending from which hemisphere and climate an individual has originated from.
The Sequus also possess long flowing tails and thick manes that run down the ridge of their back, sometimes connecting to the tail hair with some individuals. Both manes and tails are usually tied up in an ornate fashion, using jewellery or patterned fabric to express themselves.
Like all Sequusians, S'hib is covered from Hoof to brow in thick but very short hair, for which he is mostly grey with the occasional white splotch in various locations over his body, His long thick white mane is kept tied up in a neat braid with various ornamental silver cuffs, And his white tail is tied up into a small knot so as not to get in the way of any duties he might have
While not on duty he usually wears a small light wrap around his waist, similar to earth like kilts. As it is the least amount of clothing he can get away with.
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||S'hib is fresh-faced and straight from the academy, having spent the last 6 years on an extended course to help ease him and others from his race into life within Starfleet.
He is knowledgable and filled with a sense of duty to protect others. To him, Starfleet is his herd, it's just one he doesn't understand as well as everyone else does.
Eager to learn and grow as a person, And to serve in whatever fashion he can.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Shy and reserved when out of his comfort zone, which is often. Makes up for it with trying too hard or showing off.
Will give any combat simulation high score a run for its money.
|Ambitions||Struggling to overcome his failings and learn how to be less of a Sequusian without losing what it means to be one.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Enjoys cooking especially from as many different cultures as possible.
Spends more time watching people and trying to learn how to fit in then actually fitting in.
|Personal History||Early life
S'hib grew up as a child upon his homeworld of Sequella. Around age 7 he and his parents along with a several hundred others moved to earth as part of Sequella's migration initiative, Which was an incentive for members of his race with young children to broaden their horizons and actually move off-world.
Arriving on earth his parents already had jobs secured and although struggled to adjust to their now very small herd. They did so nowhere near to the degree S'hib would.
It wouldn't be for a good few years before S'hib would adjust and actually make any friends, and by age 15 still loathed the clothing he was forced to wear outside his home.
A week after his 16th birthday S'hib applied for Starfleet, Being accepted after earning a high score in his exam. Although he did struggle tremendously with the psych exam, which almost cost him his position within the academy.
During his 6 year extended program to help intergrate species with remarkably different cultures to that of the wider federation, S'hib almost washed out when he misunderstood a social interaction which on his homeworld would have been perfectly normal, but unintentionally caused offence to a superior officer. Thankfully the matter was dealt with once the true nature of the events came to light, though he was left rather embarrassed afterwards.
However he did redeem himself during one particular event in which the academy came under a terrorist attack, though it later turned out to be staged and part of the courses exams he still acted bravely, escorting civilians out of harms way and though unarmed would have saved many lives had it been a real attack.
Graduating after his 22nd birthday S'hib became one of the first of his race to join Starfleet, Though as much as he was proud of the uniform he now wore, he still detested wearing it.
S'hib is a rather awkward person, his life growing up away from his own people has left him in a somewhat strange place, neither fully adjusted to Starfleet life, nor able to understand the nuances of social interaction between humans, everything for him is far more complicated than it should be.
His own people and their culture have left them woefully unable to adapt to life off-world.
He finds clothing to be very restricting and unnecessary but understands very few cultures see them the same way as the Sequus do. As with many things, The Sequus do them rather differently.
Enjoying various types of music as well as a flair for cooking S'hib spends the majority of his time not on shift hiding away in his quarters, a place he can stop pretending and doesn't have to over analyse every situation so as not to cause upset.
In fairness he is lonely, he just doesn't realise it.
