Personality & Traits

General Overview Wakai is quite shy and reserved unless he knows you well enough to open up. He is very professional and dislikes confrontation, so will often conform to demands of those around him in order to avoid it. He is still weary and unsure of himself and his abilities - being a new and quite novice physician.
Strengths & Weaknesses Despite his own unsureness - Wakai is bright, smart and of keen intellect. He has a great ability to memorize information.

His shyness can certainly set him behind though, as he often will not speak up for himself as much as he should - which can make things difficult at times.
Ambitions Wakai has a keen interest in the intersections of medical research and pharmacology - he hopes to pursue his career in a less clinical fashion someday.
Hobbies & Interests Wakai enjoys maintaining his academic competencies - even in his spare time, he will often be found reading peer-reviewed medical journals and various texts. If he does allow himself to have some leisure time, it is usually spent drawing. He inherited an artistic flare from his mother and is able to compile some amazing quality sketches.

Personal History Wakai was born in Tokyo, Japan under the parenthood of two established second-generation family physicians. He was practically given a stethoscope at birth, with the expectation that he would continue the family tradition when he grew up. Wakai’s childhood and teenage years were certainly not unhappy ones but he did have a tremendous amount of pressure placed upon him by both of his parents to perform excellently when it came to his schooling and academics. His father was particularly hard on him, his mother did have a softer side and the two would spend many hours drawing and sketching together.

Wakai was a bit of a social outcast throughout his younger years - he found it hard to fit in sometimes and did experience some bullying. This caused him to be even more introverted and focused on his academics. The lasting effects of this formative experience have lasted into his adulthood, as he is still quite shy and awkward when it comes to his interpersonal relationships.

When it came time to apply to medical schools - Wakai had a great choice, given his superb academic marks. He did however, have a desire to not take the same path of his parents with medicine, and participate in more of an academic research capacity. He had developed a keen interest in pharmacology and research science. His parents also desired for him to study at a traditional university.

Perhaps it was a bit of a rebellious move - but Wakai elected to join Starfleet and pursue his medical education through their system. His parents were less than pleased with the choice but did not interfere, given that he would still be a physician at the end of it. What Wakai did not count on was the fact that a war would break out during his years of training. His parents were tremendously worried about the prospects of him serving in a military fashion upon finishing his medical training. He had his own anxieties regarding it as well but felt committed to the organization, given the time they had invested in his training.

During his Academy days, Waikai met and fell in love with Tobias Urquhart. A fellow Starfleet trainee who was in-line to become a security/armoury officer.

Throughout his last year of medical training, Wakai had participated in some novel research on a new cardio-stimulative medication that proved to be very useful in trauma care. This solidified his desire to take his career in a more academic direction upon completion of his residency. He graduated from the academy and received his first posting as a junior medical officer on the Endeavour.
