Personality & Traits

General Overview The life of the Q is something which Qurban does not well remember, or at least that is his claim. After 10 years of mortal humanoid existence, his intellect is vastly diminished from the 2000 IQ points that the original Q claimed of himself during his brief time as a mortal. Qurban's exile from the Continuum has left him with a dwindling intellect and recollection which seems to become smaller with each passing year. The fear of becoming a "common genius" likely contributes to his defensiveness over his position and reluctance to accept help when offered. Most of his mortal existence has been spent on Memory Theta, which is why he loves assisting the field team acquire new artifacts for cataloging and entry at the station.
Strengths & Weaknesses Qurban is very forgetful. It's the trade-off one has when trading omnipotence and omniscience for mortal life. He can't even remember if it was a voluntary trade or a consequence thrust upon him. On the flip side, he is very clever, and does not mind letting others know about it.

He has earned the informal nickname of Fortuneteller. It is not uncommon for his rambling observations to be revealed as prognostications of past and future events. Ten years of temporal orientation and he still hasn't worked out all the kinks.

Personal History When Qurban was first exiled from the Continuum, it was at the hand of another Q later classified as the Quaestor. The Quaestor interrupted a private meeting of the Vulcan Science Directorate with a depowered and unconscious humanoid at his feet and gave only the tersest of explanations: “This one is called Qurban. Keep him safe.”

The Vulcans quickly made the decision to remand the depowered Q to Starfleet custody, who in turn sent him to the furthest regions of Federation territory that could nonetheless be defended. The starbase constructed for his indefinite detention also came to hold items, objects, and other secrets deemed too sensitive or volatile for storage elsewhere. As such, Qurban was the first cataloged entry in Memory Theta and has the official status of Artifact Zero.

Qurban’s curiosity mingled with his intellect, which made for a persistent and aggravating observational study for the original Memory Theta staff. Over the years, Qurban’s expertise garnered him an informal research position at Memory Theta, an arrangement predicated on his agreement to never attempt escape. Though he is frequently at odds with whomever Starfleet ropes into the role of station administrator, he considered the facility's AI Ferrofax a close friend.
