BACKGROUND

As a child his family escaped the cardassian controlled Bajor to the refugee camps. His father's skills with mechanical equipment proved a blessing to the family which helped them raise money for food and eventually earn them a trip away from the camps.

The Sorac family took the opportunity without even asking where the ship was heading. They later found out that the destination was Earth's moon Luna. Once there Dunar's father began working in local shuttlecraft maintenance yards. He eventually wound up earning a spot on the prestigious McKinney Ship Yards team. It was from here that he was able to get Dunar a chance to take the Starfleet entrance exams.

Dunar went to the academy wanting to be in Engineering. While he excelled at the sciences much of the theoretical math required of him was beyond his understanding. It took much work, and many late nights with his peers to help him in his understanding of his subjects. While his grades were by no means spectacular ( they were fairly average) he always made it though.

After graduating from the academy Dunar looked forward to getting away from Earth, and out into the stars. Although he is far from home most of the time he tries to return to Tycho City to visit his parents whenever he can. In fact just before taking command of the Constantinople he returned from a pilgrimage with his father to Bajor, where they were able to be in the presence of one of the orbs of the prophets.

PERSONALITY PROFILE

Dunar is an easy going person. He tries to not let the everyday stresses of life get to him, and tries to always have a smile on his face. He considers the best way to motivate his crew is to keep them happy. While he is not overly funny, or into body humor he will when needed come up with a witty one-liner, or strut out of a room in dramatic fashion.

In Command Admiral Sorac generally expects a certain level of professionalism from those under him, but like to keep things light at the same time. He has been known to indulge in a few card games with his crew from time to time and very little tolerance for Klingon blood wine. He seems quite fond of the games black jack and euchre, he has also picked up many forms of card game poker from his human friends.

In times of crisis Dunar attempts, and typically succeeds, in keeping a level head, and a confidence that he will finish a winner. While confident, he tends to consult his most trusted senior staff members on major decisions if the situation permits.

He has a strong affinity for yemtash, Andorain coffee grown high in the icy mountains of Andor.

FAMILY

Dunar's Parents Sorac Taylon and Sorac Memnar both still reside in Tycho City on Luna. His sister Garret Amena and her Husband James Garret Live on Earth in the Colorado area. His Niece Rachel Garret Is Junior officer stationed aboard the Constantinople.
