Thick, soft black fur covers the majority of his large feline frame. Standing at 2.2351 meters or 7 feet 4 inches tall he is considered on the high average for his species. His ears are low to his head and rounded not pointed at the tips. His eye coloring is a deep emarald green that can catch the light and almost look as if they are glowing. His razor sharp, three inch claws are retractable and are rarely unsheathed. Thick well developed muscle runs under the skin and lends Keál a sleek athletic apperance.
Keál, son of Grrm and B’ress, was born on the eighth month of the standard year 2379 in a litter of four cubs. His childhood home, on Cait, was a ranch on the northern savanna continent of Pirrrem. He would often race his brother and sisters along the winding river near their ranch. He had an atypical isolationist upbringing and developed his hunting and stealth skills slightly early and a bit more keenly as a result.
Once Keál turned sixteen he joined the Ferasa Self-Defense Force where he learned to fly and navigate (Ferasa is the Caitian name for their planet). Once he began to patrol the asteroid belt in the Lyncis System he developed an interest in science, alien cultures, and after his survival training, medicine. Upon completing his initial two year tour in the FSDF, Keál applied to the Starfleet Medical Academy where he hoped to study xenomedicine and earn his medical degree and license. His application was accepted and Keál left Ferasa (Cait) for San Francisco, Earth.
His first two years at the academy were hard, as the basic language used to teach most of the courses was harsh and guttural compared to the soft, rolling, Caitian language he had grown up with. Keál did not let that detour him however and he attended speech therapy and linguistics classes on his own time to improve his speech and understanding of the basic language, and several others spoken by members of the Federation. By his fourth year at the academy very few people could notice much more than a slight roll of his R’s and rattle to his S’s when he spoke basic.
At the Academy Keál earned his certification for continued studies in medicine while minoring in xenobiology and flight control. He earned top marks in his flight control studies and was awarded a superior performance medal by the Dean. In addition he became a member of the elite Nova Squadron flight team while a sophomore and led the team as a senior.
After graduation Keál continued, on track, with his post graduate doctor of medicine degree and took advantage of his time at the Academy to continue his studies in xenobiology and xenosurgical techniques. Keál began his residency immediately after graduation serving as an intern at Mars, Utopia Planitia Shipyard for eighteen months. He then returned to Earth, a licensed physician, where he undertook a fellowship in diagnostic medicine at Starfleet Medical and taught a course in triage medicine to undergraduates at the Starfleet Medical Academy as his first official posting as an Officer.
By late 2409 he had made Lieutenant Junior Grade and in 2411 he was promoted to Lieutenant after his first review. Keál began looking at a posting shipboard shortly after his promotion but was sidetracked by the death of a fellow professor and friend. Keál stepped in and took over instruction of the xenobiology course in the interim, effectively pulling double duty as an instructor.
Midway through November in 2412 Keál received a PADD from his friend and colleague at Starfleet Medical informing him of a new posting and his immediate dispatch to the post of Chief Medical Officer aboard the USS Vindicator, a newly commissioned Discovery Class Starship.
Keál’s father suffered from congestive heart failure and required a mechanical heart in 2407. Heart disease is a genetic trait in most Caitians, and few live past 70 years without medical intervention though the average life span for a Caitian is 115 years. Keál himself has not exhibited any signs of heart related conditions and is in perfect health.
