Andorian Imperial Guard
Hravishran th'Zoarhi (also known as Shran or Thy'lek Shran) was an Andorian thaan who served as a commander, and later general, in the Andorian Imperial Guard in the 2150s. His commonly used name "Shran" was a shortening of "Hravishran". "Thy'lek" is the Aenar form of Shran's name. Despite his aggressive and xenophobic background, Shran became an unlikely ally of Starfleet Captain Jonathan Archer and a proponent of strengthened ties between Andoria and Earth.
Upon reaching the correct age he followed several other members of his family, including his elder brother, in joining the Imperial Guard. In order to follow a career in the military, Shran had to sacrifice his responsibility of being in a shelthreth party, which meant he had to live a very lonely life for many years. In 2142, Shran was promoted to commander of the Andorian warship, Kumari. At some point during Shran's command, Talas, a female tactical officer came aboard the Kumari. Like Shran, she had sacrificed her place in a shelthreth party, and the two eventually became lovers.
In 2154 Shran returned to Andoria and was forced to resign from the Imperial Guard, and he later choose to spend his time living with Jhamel and the Aenar. Six months later, Shran attended the forming of the shelthreth bondgroup between Jhamel, Theras, Shenar, and Vishri (all three Aenar). Eventually, Shran had a daughter, Talla, who was three quarters Aenar.
Not unfamiliar with politics from his career in the military, involved in such negotiations as the Treaty for Disposition of Weytahn/Paan Mokar, Commander Shran would later have a seat on the Federation Council.
