Teliv has had a long career as a physician and surgeon in two different space services; Starfleet and the Vulcan Expeditionary Group. His first Starfleet tour of duty was borne out of a sense of curiosity about the universe beyond Vulcan and a desire to test his understanding of Surak’s disciplines in the “crucible of emotional races.” Although he served with distinction, his participation in the Dominion War caused him to question his place in Starfleet and ultimately to leave it. He returned to Vulcan, underwent the Kohlinar to purge the emotions riled by the war, and went on to work in a hospital in ShiKahr for some years before deciding to return to space, this time with the Vulcan Expeditionary Group.
Teliv spent over thirty years in the VEG, serving on the cruiser Ti’Nat for the entire time, with the occasional planetside leave on Vulcan. During one of these leaves, he met and married an archivist, P’Rula, and started a family. The marriage, not being arranged, caused some stir among relatives, but both Teliv and P’Rula were able to logically defend their decision.
Despite serving with distinction for decades, his career in the Expeditionary Group ended in disaster. On what should have been a routine survey on a Class L planet in System 8993.2, a ground team was injured due to a severe quake. Teliv was sent down to provide medical aid, but he and the ground team were quickly overwhelmed when an aftershock released a subsurface pocket of craylon gas laced with invidium. The resulting toxic mixture, combined with the emergency transport back to the Ti’Nat, severely disrupted muscle tissue and weakened bones in those exposed. The Ti’Nat’s medical staff was able to save the lives of the ground team and Teliv, but all were unable to walk or manipulate objects without risking injury. Conventional treatments for restoring muscle mass and bone density failed, and Teliv was discharged from service for medical reasons, returning to Vulcan.
Although treatment has restored Teliv’s ability to walk, he cannot do so without aid; an exoskeleton assists him in all physical activity. In addition, Vulcan’s higher gravity has proven to be an extra burden on him, even with the exoskeletal aid. Teliv remained on Vulcan for a few years before deciding to return to Starfleet, where the gravity levels would be a little more comfortable, while still allowing him to pursue his goal of exploring space. After a period of retraining, Teliv returned to duty with his former rank, and spent an additional year serving as an assistant surgeon aboard the USS Zheng He. Personality friction with the Zheng He’s CMO led to a request for transfer, and given Teliv’s extensive experience and the sudden opening up of a position on the USS Brahe, Starfleet granted the transfer, with the increased responsibilities of a Chief Medical Officer’s position.
Teliv’s interactions with others remain professional and courteous, as befitting most Vulcans, though those who get to know him will find a marked lack of the typical arrogance many Vulcans might exhibit when dealing with “more emotional races”. His dedication to the teachings of Surak and the Disciplines, coupled with his decades of experience, have become the solid rock upon which his life stands, and the basis for his acceptance of other ways of being. He remains honest to the point of bluntness at times, and adheres to the physicians creed of aiding all who seek his help without judgement. In his off-hours, he meditates, and plays Kal-toh.

Weapons and other forms of attack, as well as the damage caused by hazards, have a few common traits and values that determine the specifics of how they function. The key
elements of a weapon are what type of weapon it is, its damage rating, the size of the weapon, and any Qualities it possesses that influence how it is used.
Weapons are discussed in detail on page 192 of the Core Rule Book. Additionally, you can find a table of weapons on page 193.
