Growing up, Olan demonstrated a curious personality and penchant for some mischief. He was known to prank his older sisters with sometimes disastrous though harmless results.
During his teen years his wild attitude levelled off as he developed an interest in space exploration and flying starships. He became very focused on the goat of joining Starfleet and flying the biggest starship he could find.
At the same time he found himself fascinated with the Trill symbionts and the joining. While this was nothing abnormal for young Trills, he set himself the dual task of not only succeeding in Starfleet Academy but also becoming eligible for a symbiont.
Once joined with the Dar symbiont (circa 2403), naturally there was a change in Olan's personality and some habits. Some of his forced focus on career success was tempered by the zest for life experience gained from the previous host and he managed to strike a healthy balance between the two. He became ambidextrous as well as improving his own drawing skills from simple stick figures into far more elaborate and detailed work.
There was little impact on his career aspirations as there were only the memories and personality of one previous host to integrate, but he became more open to other opportunities. It was this that eventually led him from the single minded piloting goal into eventually taking on command responsibilities.
Also, the addition of the open minded nature of Elona and attention to details of an artist, he was able to manage crew interactions effectively as well as provide sound, objective advise that takes into account various perspectives to others, especially his Captain while serving as the Executive Officer of the USS Drake.
Elona Dar (previous host)
Elona was a free spirited artist who enjoyed experiencing life to its fullest. She spent a lot of time travelling to various other planets and systems, delving into local cultures and their artistic expressions.
She was an accomplished painter, sketcher and one of the first to utilize holographics as a full immersion art form.
Elona, the host, became ill later in life and eventually died in peace on Trill at the age of 82. The Dar symbiont was transfered to a young Starfleet officer, Ensign Olan Jarut.
