Notes of Interest

Rim Khras is a Tellarite, but he doesn't exactly look the role. Apart from some facial ridges, Rim doesn't really look anything like a Tellarite. He is a bit stout, and obviously short in stature, but he lacks the most obvious trait of a Tellarite, which is the pig-like snout. Rim's nose actually looks more like a Human nose, and it is one of the reasons he suffers from Dyspnea. Dyspnea is a medical term describing a sensation of difficulty in breathing, which is considered a common ailment in Tellarites. Poor Rim's nose is considered an abnormality by his species and he was ridiculed mercilessly as a child because of it. And it didn't help matters much when as he grew older, he was forced to keep a clean-shaven face, as thick facial hair under the nose inhibited his ability to breath.*

While the Tellarite race was generally known to be an impatient people, stubborn, and confrontational, Rim is actually mild-mannered, reserved, and avoided conflict. He considers himself to be a good guy, although he is a bit shy. This was to be expected though, as he has been labeled an outcast his entire life.

He is in a romantic relationship with Lieutenant Victorique de Blois.
