General description and Profile:

  • Talents/Abilities:

  • Durek can hear exceptionally well, being a Ferengi, which means most races have to be pretty far away to be out of earshot from them. It sometimes borders on precognition.

  • Special Abilities:

  • Always had a nose for food, literally. He was able to sniff out cooked or uncooked food even after being sealed in packaging. Of course Ferengi food consists of worms and insects.

  • Strengths:

  • Firm believer in the Rules of Acquisition and a good head for business. Can be very creative when it comes to planning or finding alternatives to situations. Is ambitious enough to take those little extra risks. Has a natural ability to not be effected by telepathic powers due to the unique four-lobe configuration of the Ferengi brain.

  • Limitations:

  • Not personally brave in the face of grave danger. Much more the planner than an initiator. Being a smaller humanoid race, flight will take the place of fight. Due to the improved auditory abilities, Ferengi are susceptible to some high frequency sounds that will cause great pain.

  • Likes:

  • Profit and more profit. Enjoys personal comfort and loves his family.

  • Dislikes:

  • Hates not making a profit and also the fact that he is so far down in the inheritance line.

  • Ambitions:

  • Does not want to be just a merchant, but a SUPPLIER so he can set the price. First he must find the right product.

  • Quirks:

  • He enjoys teaching.

  • Hobbies/Interests:

  • Looking for the next deal.

    Personal History:

    Durek was born the fourth of six sons in the Koul Marketing Zone of the Ferengi Capitol. Typically, most Ferengi families have only a few children, but this was not the case in his family. The advantage was that he would grow up with more family contacts, always good for business, but he was also much farther down on the inheritance ladder. His love for reading had him dreaming about other places other than Ferenginar and the riches that might be out there. After reaching the Age of Attainment, he continued his education at the Koul Business Academy. During his time at the Academy, he made friends with a guest lecturer, BaiOk (Special Agent) Nemus, from the Ferengi Commerce Association. (The FCA is roughly the equivalent of the old Earth Internal Revenue Service). Upon graduation from the Academy, he was able to use this friendship to secure a position at the FCA spaceport as an apprentice Cargo Handler. BaiOk Nemus was part of the Security Fees Division of the FCA. This division was responsible for inspecting property that had been secured by the FCA from Ferengi that had not met their obligation of paying taxes. Administrators from the Division would always arrive in time to help ‚?oinventory‚?Ě the cargo loads and sort out those items that would be routed to the Division for special handling and auction. Most of the items never saw the light of an auction house though.

    BaiOk Nemus would give Durek a strip of Latinum as a ‚?ofinders fee‚?Ě when he was notified of a cargo load being delivered before the other Administrators. This continued for the next four years allowing Durek to advance to the position of Cargo Master for the Third Shift ahead of others that had been working there longer. The unofficial partnership between Durek and BaiOk Nemus began to become more profitable as Durek learned more of the FCA systems. Still, he was unfulfilled and wanted to set out on his own and find that product that would make everyone come to him.

    While at the FCA, Durek heard about the Federation‚?Ts efforts to rebuild its fleet. The information seemed to stick with him to the point of distraction. Rule of Acquisition No. 9: Opportunity plus instinct equals profit. Here was his way of getting out there in the stars, courtesy of Star Fleet and not having to compete against a host of other Ferengi. Durek immediately applied to the Ferengi Science Institute and continued working at the FCA. He completed enough classes to qualify for Star Fleet Aacdemy. In 2376, he left his family, the FCA and Ferenginar for the Academy on Earth and future profits.


    Medical History:

    Durek is mentally sharp and quick-witted and is in very good physical shape. He doesn't mind physical labor, as long as there is profit involved.
