Ambitions To prove that the Federation is a viable concept. He is willing to devote his life to proving the point, be it in sacrifice or years of service.
Hobbies & Interests Varak has an interest in the behaviour of non-Vulcans, and spends a lot of time trying to understand it. While he has a decent idea, he's still a bit unsure.
Outside of that, he spends his time meditating and walking.

Personal History Varak was born in 2110 to two Syrrannite parents. As a result, he spent much of his childhood growing up in The Forge, and learning about Surak's true teachings.

At age 7, he was betrothed to T'Sav, a Vulcan of the same age. At age 20, he married her.

By 2154, aged 44, he was the leader of a settlements of Syrrannites, showing natural leadership strength. When the Vulcan High Command was abolished, he was given a choice of where to pursue his next goals, and he chose the Vulcan Space Expedition.

He served aboard the Vulcan Ship P'Jem as second officer. The ship's primary duty was assisting struggling worlds, and as a result he gained an aptitude for cooperating with a wide variety of species.

During the Earth-Romulan war, his ship was one of several assigned to protect Andorian space. Due to his diplomatic skills, he was in charge of communicating with Andorians, and helped to ensure cooperation on several occassions. After the death of the P'Jem's first officer in 2157, he was promoted to first officer.

In 2159, T'Sav initiated the koon-ut-kal-if-fee, wishing to be with Tokhal instead. During the fight that followed between him and Tokhal, he suffered serious injuries that almost resulted in his death. This was enough to break his blood fever, and his injuries were treated.

Following this event, he took a three year break to explore his spirituality in The Forge on Vulcan. When he came back, he learnt of the Federation, and the good they were doing. He pulled in many favours in Starfleet, and was able to regain his commission as a Captain in 2163. He then requested the USS T'Pau, seeing it as symbolic of the ideals of the Federation - species working together, to become greater than the sum of their parts.
