Personality & Traits

General Overview Lurians tend to have very long lives, and though he's 38 Years old, He's still pretty green to Starfleet and his career.

Marinel is a slow and steady sort of engineer. Able to laser focus on a problem at hand, and carefully considering how to solve a problem. He enjoys learning how things work, and seems to always want to know more about his systems. Officers have described him as dependable and accurate.

Personality, Marinel tends to speak in a long drawn out drawl. He's often kind, if somewhat annoying to speak to for long times, as most species find it difficult to maintain a conversation for too long with him. He's good natured and eager to help in his methodical way.
Strengths & Weaknesses As a lurian, he's physically rather strong, if slow to move. He prefers to think in depth about his problems, and try to stay very knowledgeable.

His biggest weaknesses are his careful consideration, slow demeanor, and slow reaction speeds. Performance reviews indicate he likely won't proceed much higher up the chain of command due to his slow pace and desire to work out all of the parameters.

Engineering wise, he's most proficient with working on warp cores, physically installing hardware, and inspections.

His least favorite tasks involve working with the computer. Running Diagnostics and troubleshooting the computer systems he doesn't seem to enjoy, and often can feel pressure from superior officers for not working fast enough, especially given the fast processing power of the computers.
Ambitions Marinel doesn't seek much out of life. He enjoys his work keeping his starship running and helping others as a part of a bigger whole. The new challenges and opportunities for learning aboard a starship keep his interests. He's often reading or listening to discussions about technology.

Perhaps someday when he feels he's learned all he cares to, and decides to retire, he'll settle down with a machine and technology Replicator shop somewhere hot and muggy, with plenty of hot mud baths.
Hobbies & Interests Marinel enjoys working with his hands in his time off, designing parts in replicators for simple and complex machines. He has an interest in antique propulsion systems such as magnetron flywheel engines and nuclear fission reactors. He likes to build parts and designs for these engines.

On vacation, he's known to enjoy riding antique craft over the open boglands of his homeworld.

Marinel enjoys warm muggy environments for their skin and muscle softening environments.
