Personality: Shan conducts himself with the weight and gravity one would expect of of a Federation Councilor. After all he did study long and well on what that weight and gravity should be. This dignified and serious persona is just that, a persona, something he puts on like his vest. At home he as as fun loving and free spirited as any of his kind.

Weaknesses/Disadvantages: Ottarions are slow on land. Even on all fours their humping gait is not as fast as a biped at full run.
History and Experiences Which have Affected Character Greatly: Shan has been a career diplomat since he joined the Teel clan coming out of primary school. He is far too young to have memories of the hundred year-long Anzz war, but its history is well taught. The Ottarion have been Federation members for as long as he can remember. Shan has served three different missions before he was appointed as Federation Councilor. He is considered middle aged for his kind, and has gained some measure of the wisdom that comes from experience.
Position: Ottarion's take any threat to their general well being seriously. Their species has already fought off one slave holding, rapacious Empire and they are not prepared to endure another. They are firmly in the Guns & Butter camp. On the other hand, they are as gentlebeing as any race in the Federation could be, and are firmly in that camp. They love new things and new friends are their favorite new thing. As a result they will tend to exasperate everyone at one point or another.
