He has an issue with overworking himself and suffers from migraines as a result.

Personal History Born 07/14/2356 to Xavier and Denise Aravan, the older brother Gage Aravan, Michael spent long hours trying to be protective, himself an example of what to do when a situation called for and leading from the front. It wasn't always easy as Gage liked to fight, but it taught Michael to stand up for people. It was far more important than other self-serving jobs which most people chose to get into. He learned honor and duty from his father, and kindness and perseverance from his mother.

He was trained in martial arts, hand-to-hand combat, armed combat, and how to figure out a situation before entering too deeply. The latter was done by countless hours of being put into situations by his parents who left a series of clues for him to follow. When he succeeded, he was rewarded, but to him the greatest reward was figuring it out on his own. When he failed, he was shown where he went wrong and encouraged not to forget what happened.

At age 18, he applied to and was accepted at Starfleet Academy in San Francisco, California, Earth where he dedicated himself to the art of being a Security Officer. Rather than choosing to specialize in any given area, he majored in both Security and Tactical, with Investigation as a minor.

It was during his senior year at the Academy that he met Spencer Scott. The young woman had been in her second year and Michael couldn't get enough of her. When he wasn't studying, he spent every available and knew that he had to have her as more than just a friend. While he hadn't openly admitted it to anyone, Michael knew that he was in love with her. Upon his graduation, he told her that he would keep in contact with her and even though he did after he was shipped out on the USS Victory, he left his heart with her. No other woman had a chance, and many threw themselves at him only to meet a brick wall.

2380 - 2382 After leaving the USS Sacagawea, Michael was assigned as a Security/Tactical Officer on board the U.S.S. Victory. There, his training was put to intense scrutiny and he received countless hours of real time study and active duty in the field of Security and Tactical. He learned how to filter fact from fiction, truth from lie, and had it ingrained in him to double check all of his facts. The hours were long and there were times when he suffered from intense headaches, but he came to learn that was the time when his brain was trying to point out the obvious to him. Once learning that, he began watching for the signals of an impending headache so he would know that his mind was pointing something out to him. The only thing that kept him sane was his constant contact with Spencer Scott, his best friend and love from the Academy.

For two years, he learned Romulan and Klingon, the latter being one of the hardest languages that he had ever encountered. Nearly breaking, he elected to continue his training, never knowing when he would be called on to have to speak like a native. Mastering the two languages added to his ability to investigate likely enemies of the Federation, even though he was far more likely would be called upon to use his Romulan the way things were going at the border of the Romulan Neutral Zone.

2383 - 2385 From the U.S.S. Victory, his four year term completed, Michael was transferred to USS Blizzard and put himself to good use in Security there, adding his knowledge and training to the already vast amount that was to be learned there. Not wasting his time or the time of his superiors, he dedicated himself to learning even more, this time settling into Cryptography, a passion for puzzles as his driving motivation. Promoted to Lieutenant JG.

2385 - 2387 Getting his next set of orders, Lieutenant JG Aravan said his farewells to the few friends he had on USS Blizzard and transferred to the USS Nimitz where he served in the capacity of Assistant Chief of Security/Tactical. It was in this position that he learned all the ins and outs of how a department was run, and he maintained a working balance between the two separate areas of the same field. Michael continued to learn everything he could about the position, incorporating every aspect from the Master-at-Arms to the position that he held. No one would ever say that he did not set the example for anyone who ever entered his department. Lead by example was his prime motto. For two years, he served on the station before being promoted to full Lieutenant after breaking up a ring of weapons smugglers that were stealing Federation weapons and selling them to the Cardassians.

2387 - 2390 Michael decided that he had gone as far as he could in the Security/Tactical area and went back to the Academy to take the Command course. Left the Academy with his own command as a Captain of the USS Triumphant.

2392: Promoted to Commodore
Medical

Michael suffers from bad migraines from over working himself. Going to Medical for something to handle the pains that his headaches gave him, but turned up nothing other than the Medical officer telling him that perhaps he needed to learn to step back from his intense concentration and take a break. "Nothing good will come of your work if you continually force yourself beyond your limits. In fact, if you do continue to do this, I may have to note it on your permanent record."

He took that order to heart and learned to work with the flow and when he needed to take a step back from it, although he never took time off when something was time sensitive. Because of what the Medical officer had told him, he dealt with the headaches and focused his concentration more the first time around so he wouldn't get a headache after going over something for the fifteenth time. The one person who was able to help more than anyone was his wife, Spencer Scott-Aravan.
