Personality & Traits
|Personal History||While a competent and generally well-liked officer within Starfleet circles, Thayd is rather unpopular among his own race through no direct action of his own. The Bren symbiote has a divisive reputation acquired over generations, having chosen a series of somewhat unpalatable or unsavory hosts. The manner by which he transits between hosts, outside of the joining program on Trillius Prime and relying on the expertise in Trill biology of Starfleet or Federation medical personnel also marks him as something of a pariah.
