About 6' 3"and 157 lbs, Lt. (Jg.) Traan Antosi has a ridged nose (like most, probably all, Bajorans), wears an earring, has short, trimmed, black hair, and brightly hazel eyes. He has a small scar above his eyes, testament to Cardassian brutality during the Occupation.
Antosi has lived most of his life after the Occupation, and most of the pain he suffered during it has faded. However, he still doesn't like to hear it spoken of lightly. He is goofy most of the time, but when he settles down to work he is level-headed, calm, and can work with full attention for hours at a time. He is very sociable, but prefers quiet occasions rather than loud parties. He can solve a problem fairly quickly, but takes his time when doing routine work. He goes out of his way to find challenges. In a combat situation he is perfectly capable of performing his duties with concentration and courage. He has a low tolerance for embarrassment.
Antosi looks on every day as if it's a new life. He firmly believes the Prophets have a plan for him that will take him to the far reaches of the galaxy, and wishes to help wherever and however he can, to make where he is better. He looks on a day filing records in Sickbay with much less relish than an away mission in a cramped runabout to a plague-ridden planet. He doesn't care for comfort as much as what he's doing. He hates to waste time.
Born in 2358 on Bajor, Traan Antosi was born to Traan Lana and Traan Tennan, children of farmers who were moved to a dilithium mine on Bajor at the beginning of the Occupation. They met in the mine in 2357 and soon married. After Tennan died in an accident soon after Antosi's birth, Traan Lana was noticed by the Gul in control of the mine, Gul Rukol and was taken as her comfort woman. 5 years and 4 children later, in all of which time Antosi was hidden, when Rukol discovered Lana's 'extra child', without Cardassian features, he attempted to carve Cardassian ridges into his skin. However, the knife barely touched Antosi's skin, as Lana jumped in front of her child, disturbing the knife. In his rage, Rukol killed Lana. Stricken with regret, Rukol sent Antosi away. He never saw his half-brothers again. As time went by he even forgot their names.
After 6 more years learning basic skills and, secretly, the Way of the Prophets in an orphanage, Bajor was liberated in 2369. Antosi was placed in a series of foster homes, and throughout his adolescence struggled with an almost pathological antisocial tendency. However, he was extremely intelligent and had no academic trouble in school. However, he felt restless on Bajor, and wanted to see the galaxy. He also wanted to help people after the atrocities he'd seen during the occupation. At age 16, with the help of his foster mother, Londo Kilona, he took the entrance exam to Starfleet Academy. He was accepted even at his young age, and, in addition to his studies, made his first friends, and met Lysia Graife, a gifted Bolian woman, who intended to work as a exobiologist in Starfleet, in 2378 in his last year at Starfleet Academy. They married two years into Antosi's medical school, when Lysia was stationed at the Starfleet Institute of Tactical Exobiology in San Francisco. Their marriage was untroubled and idyllic, and Lysia's parents were satisfied with her choice. However, it took great fortitude to be married to a Bolian, along with what he thought must have been the largest lavatory in San Francisco. It might have been an impossible feat if Antosi was not a gifted doctor. Antosi graduated Starfleet Medical Academy in 2382, with high honors, including the Phlox Award for Scholastic Achievements in Medicine.
He was assigned to Starbase 567 in the Cestus system. 6 months into his assignment, a plague arose in the Gorn Hegemony.With no detectable pathogen , it, ostensibly, stumped medical research in the Hegemony. Traan Antosi took on the research as his personal project. After 4 months of work, Traan Antosi unveiled the pathogenesis and a treatment. The disease was caused by inhaling a synthetic retrovirus designed to be undetectable. He detected it when he devised a new method of medical scanning based on metreon filtering. Once he discovered the cause, it was simple to devise an antibody. It is still unknown who devised the pathogen. This tremendous accomplishment earned Traan Antosi a promotion and a transfer as CMO to the USS Washington.
