Toras was born to a bondgroup of three men and one woman. Torin and Remat married each other, but Rani, being the only woman, bore the children for all three males. Toras never found out which one of her fathers was the one who gave her life, but she didn't care: they were all her fathers and she loved them. Because there were three men competing for womb-time with one woman, Rani was almost always pregnant with one man's baby or another. When the doctors finally said she had to stop, she had given birth to eight children, 3 boys and 5 girls, Toras being the oldest after Malin. Malin and Toras were expected to help look after their little brothers and sisters during the day. They did it well. Their quarters were huge since the eight children never wanted to leave the frigid quarters for the more temperate climate of the rest of the ship. When Torin was given command of his own ship, he requested that it be an all Andorian ship, and Starfleet obliged. The temperature never went above -2C (29F). Toras and Malin took their siblings to the holodeck regularly. When it came time, Toras and Malin went into martial training and they both exceptionally well, but Toras wanted to meet new people. She didn't want to be in Starfleet, she wanted to be a scientist. Malin, more of a fighter, never understood her obsession with people. Thus, he went to Starfleet Academy, Linu, Ralen and Giren soon following.
At Berkeley University on Earth, Toras found out the meaning of the word HOT. She did not like it and generally spent all summer in her room, in the cold. In the winter, she would emerge and intermingle with the other students. She discovered body temperature control suits and soon could go out even in the summer. She did very well in school, passing with high honors. When it came time to make a career, she went on several digs with renowned archaeologists, and also worked on Starfleet vessels as a civilian scientist. She did not, however, think of going to the Galactic Anthropology Committee until she met Balin. He was tall and handsome with light blue skin, deep blue eyes, and silver hair. He suggested they go to the Galactic Anthropology Committee and apply for jobs. They were both accepted, and soon Toras and Balin became romantically involved. They met two other Andorians, Utban and Finas Narn. The two couples made overtures to each other and began to realize that they wanted to get married together. Thus, Toras's bondgroup was formed. Balin and Finas stayed home with the children while Utban was security and Toras continued her work with the GAC. They soon had three children as Toras discovered more and more peoples. When not in the field, she has since stayed on Cestus III with her family as a member of the GAC, soon being elevated to Chairwoman.
