Ranel was born to the Fourth House of Betazed as the middle child of three. Ranel was always the artistic one, Trei the athlete, and Naila the scientist. Ranel got his calling when he took care of a stray pet until its leg was better. Then one day when he was around 10, some people moved into the manor next door. Tran Segar had come home with his family from Earth to care for his father. When the Son the of the Third House died, Ranel went to the funeral with his family and met Liang-Po and Shii, Tran's children. The five became inseparable, even going to the Janaran Falls during the summer months.
As they became older, the relationships between the five of them changed. Instead of taking an interest in Shii, he found himself attracted to Liang-Po, but kept his distance since Liang-Po was dating his sister and obviously not interested. Trei had a huge crush on Shii, but Ranel soon found himself in love with a young Trill named Deral Resam who was attending the Art Institute. The two boys spent every hour together they could until Deral graduated and returned to Trill. Ranel was heartbroken but had learned something important about himself: he was gay. He entered the Academy a year after Shii, where they were both studying to become Doctors. He made a lot of friends and got terrific grades, but still wasn't happy because he was thinking about Deral.
When he graduated he was assigned to the USS Achilles, where he met his husband-to-be, Sean O'Connell. The two fell instantly in love, and were married 2 years after Ranel came aboard. Upon hearing this, his mother was livid. Tarena had wanted her sons to marry WOMEN, not men, but Ranel absolutely would not leave Sean. Sean was killed shortly after this during an attack on the ship. Ranel has never forgiven his mother for not accepting his husband into the family.
He asked for a transfer soon after this, unable to get over the memories that surrounded him on the Achilles. He is now serving onboard the USS Trafalgar.
