|Lieutenant (JG) Keran Azhan (2382)|
Azhan's parents were El-Aurian refugees rescued by the USS Enterprise-B. They settled on Cestus III, and Keran was born in late 2300. He inherited the usual El-Aurian traits from his parents, including an innate curiosity of all things. This curiosity lead him to strike out to explore the galaxy at the age of twenty. Though Azhan is approaching eighty Terran years of age, he is little more than an adolescent in El-Aurian years. A fact which does not stop him from displaying an irritating habit of condescension towards the "younger races" he encounters in his travels.
After many years of living as a free spirit, wandering the various corners of the charted galaxy (including several years living amongst the denizens of the shady world of Farius Prime) he decided to enrol at Starfleet Academy. He graduated in 2374 with high grades, and spent three years serving as a counselor aboard the USS Challenger, before being transferred to a classified posting.
In 2381, he was assigned as the new counselor on the USS Intrepid ostensibly for the duration of the Chiron colonial duty. However questions about his possible association with Starfleet Intelligence brought him into conflict with Commodore Aaron Prentice and Commander Daniel Hunter. As a result, his tenure came to a sudden halt shortly before the Intrepid shipped out. He currently serves as a linguist aboard the USS Pandora, a Oberth-class survey vessel.
