A liberal follower of the Way of D'era, Korak believes he can best serve the Romulan Star Empire by analyzing, appropriating, and utilizing xenotechnology to strengthen the Galae and help his fellow Rihannsu rebuild. Korak also happens to be a supporter of the Romulan-Vulcan Reunification Movement although he keeps these views private. He is often best described as an intelligent and relentless individual. Korak was the survivor of a Breen prison camp during the Dominion War, Karok hides some personal guilt that he did not follow through with the Final Honor at some point during his capture. He tries to silently remind himself that another death was the last thing his people needed and staying alive helped him to keep the other members of the Stormcrow alive in the prison too.
Korak is an extremely intelligent and analytical individual capable of analyzing any situation and finding the best outcome. A seasoned leader, he understands how to earn the respect of those who serve with him and instill fear in those who cross him. Korak however despises playing the political game. While he can do it he often would rather cut to the point and not dance around subjects or lurk in the shadows like the Tal'Shiar. As such, he is known for being rather blunt at times.
The Romulan Commander is very aware that as he grows older and as the only surviving member of his house it is his duty to find a suitable partner and produce offspring. It's not like he hasn't tried, he just hasn't found the one. On a professional level he aspires to explore deep into the Beta Quadrant, outside of known Romulan space in uncharted areas. And in his free time he enjoys practicing the martial art known as N'Delrek, spending time with his pet Set'leth, playing S'darha, and carving wooden sculptures. He has also been known to take the time to keep his marksmanship skills sharp by practicing with the Reman commandos.
Korak tr'Seroht was born on the twenty second day of the third month to Rekar Seroht and his wife, Katara. His father was a well respected Rh'iov in the Romulan Galae, commanding the RIS Carellus. Being a quarter Watraii due to his Mother's family, Koval was bullied early on in his life which led his father to having him instructed in the art of N'Delerk.
When Korak reached the age of five, he was entered into the standard Romulan training Programs where he excelled in mathematics and mechanics. The training program lasted for fifteen years and at the end of his training, aided by his family’s reputation, Korak had become one of the most promising young engineering minds within the Empire.
At the age of twenty Korak had no shortage of options for the start of his career, from the Romulan Galae to various organizations both on planet and off planet as well. However when he was delivered the news that has Father had been killed in action by the Klingons in a border dispute the only son decided to honor his father by joining the Galae. Even if it wasn’t the ideal place that he would have wanted, there were still plenty of opportunities to be had in space.
After completing the Imperial War College Korak would spend the next three years serving aboard an older vessel as a general engineer in the Warbird Control department. His skills in repair and design however did not go unnoticed and in the year 2358 he was reassigned to a Romulan Starbase where he joined a weapons research project for the following two years.
At the conclusion of the project he spent the next ten years aboard the IRW Kevelk. His new position was Leader of Singularity Control and it was aboard the Kevelk that he became good friends with the Leader of Warbird Control and the ships Sub Commander. Both felt the officer had the makings of a leader and began to mentor him. When Tolar, the Warbird Control Leader died during an away mission in the year 2367 Korak assumed the position. He stayed n the position for nearly three more years, earning the respect if the crew and the ships Commnander both for his scrubs and skills on the ship and during away missions.
Just a few years before the Dominion War struck Korak was reassigned once more, this time to a D'deridex-class ship, the Stormcrow. Aboard the Stormcrow the now seasoned officer began to finally cross train and put his Engineering Physicist studies and leadership skills to the test as the Head of Warfare. During the ending days of the Dominion War the Stormcrow was caught in an engagement with the Breen and for four years the survivors, including Korak spent their time in a prison camp. In the year 2379 the Breen finally admitted to the camp and through political maneuvering the surviving Romulans were returned to Romulus.
Korak returned to Romulus for a year undergoing physical and mental rehabilitation and fighting off accusations that he failed to seize the opportunity for final honor. He also had to deal with the fact that his Mother had died from a heart attack while he was in captivity, leaving him as the sole surviving member of the Seroht House. After a year of dealing with doctors and being debriefed Korak was returned to duty aboard the IRW Opalius and once more named Head of Warfare.
In the year 2386 during a crisis on a joint colony with the Garidian Republic Korak once more demonstrated his leadership potential after the ships Sub Commander died during the away mission and Korak completed the negotiations that ended the crisis and gained the release of their Commander. His actions earned him a promotion to ere'Riov and named the new Sub Commander of the Opalius.
Over the next six years he would serve with distinction and his name began to carry weight amongst the higher echelons of the Galae. When a new waive of warbirds finished construction in the year 2392 Korak was offered his first command, the IRW Rovaran.
