Physical Description

Malekai has an unusual countenance. Black-irised eyes seem old-soul on what is an aging-cherubic face. His facial shapes are rounded- inevitably drawing comparisons of neoteny or something fae-like, which Malekai dryly laughs along with. He is, strictly speaking, not classically handsome or pretty, but Malekai is interesting to look at- discomfiting to some, or just a curiosity to some others.

His mouth tends to slyly smile, as if finding irony or irreverence, but much of the time it has a thin Librarian’s purse. Malekai has a pensive edge to him, and he has a habit of furrowing his brow when he is concentrating. The angle of his eyebrows over Betazoid-black eyes can be intimidating to some, as it can be hawkish, and adds to that strange, otherworldly old soul feel. He has a full head of wiry, wheat-golden hair with an unruly wave which he tames with only marginal interest to fashion.

Malekai has an angular, defined jawline that drops into a long neck. He is lithely built, with the kind of body that must work to keep either a scrap of fat, or a hint of muscle mass. He is quite active and most of his hobbies have an element of exercise to them.


Family

Parent(s) Jibrel Isa (age 61). The Chief of Interview Investigation with the Loneel Safeguard- a form of police officer that questions and cross-examines suspects in a board review before trial. He also oversees police interrogations to assure only certain, non-invasive telepathic techniques are used.
Parent(s) Esridonna Howe (age 63). Senior Administrator of the Loneel Forum for Adolescent Emergence, a specialized school for Betazoid youths who are struggling with the development of their telepathic process- either as gifted, or subpar. She was formerly a counselor and was once a student there.
Sibling(s) Aurum Howe (Older Brother, age 33)
Kassia Howe (Older Sister, age 37)

Personality & Traits

General Overview

Malekai is best described as respectful, tolerant, intellectual, and private. He has a conservative mindset- do things by the book, don't reinvent the wheel unless it is absolutely necessary. He prefers concrete facts and logic over abstractions and theory. He is different than the stereotype of the cocky, strutting flyboy- but he does have an element of that "steely-eyed driver" when things are exploding around him. Malekai is cool in a crisis but, aside from being a rule follower, he doesn't seem to be cold or overly distant- but he is complex. Malekai does compartmentalize his life into controllable boxes- social time is social time, work time is work time, private time is private time.

Malekai is willing to consider emotions and feelings when someone is down or in obvious need. But when a decision needs to be made, he is all about the facts and data. At times he can seem rigid but those that know him, know that he is trying to strike a balance between what is doable and what is justifiable or collectively fair. He doesn't go so far as to quote rules and regulations (much) but he is a by-the-book type.

Malekai is a very private person: by Betazoid standards, he is virtually antisocial or of a melancholic disposition. He values honesty and openness but he balances that with his own introversion. Like work vs. playtime, Malekai has compartmentalized his "Betazoidisms" of bold-faced honesty to adapt to a ship full of aliens. He is also careful with his telepathic and empathic prowess: he respects that most non-Betazoids do not view these senses in the same way as Betazoids. And, to be fair, they are right. It is a very one-sided affair among aliens. Betazoids are open because it is a two-way street. With non-Betazoids, it is not.


Strengths + RELIABLE:

+ EYE FOR DETAIL:

+ COOL IN A CRISIS:

+ ORGANIZED:

+ HARD WORKING:

+ TELEPATHY: Malekai developed his telepathic powers at around the same age as most Betazoid adolescents. In skill, he is in the middle of the bell curve- neither deficient, nor gifted.
