Personal History Born into the sixth house of Betazed Lon, displayed an affinity for the sciences from an early age. He was withdrawn for a Betazoid infant something that was likely since Lon’s empathic abilities were far below the average for the species. His parents were concerned that he might not develop telepathic abilities at all and considered shipping Lon to a less telepathy centred culture.

Lon enrolled at the University of Betazed as soon as he was able. He would leave 13 years later having completed two doctorates: one is science the other in engineering. He was offered a postdoctoral position, but turned it down favouring the opportunity to enrol in Starfleet Academy, feeling that it presented a better opportunity for him to see and experience new and interesting phenomena.

It was at Starfleet Academy that Lon met and fell in love with Steye Emome. The pair would marry while serving aboard the USS Slayton and shortly after welcome a daughter, Navari. the Slayton saw action during the Federation-Cardassian war, during which time Lon received an award for valour. The war left a mark on the Betazoid scientist and he developed an addiction to chocolate. The substance abuse led to the end of his marriage and transfer to the USS Apollo.

In 2368 would marry Sinan Ocho. A career driven woman, Sinan was the opposite of Steye, and widely regarded as a bad match for Lon by their friends. Lon's preference for research over advancement exacerbated the mismatch of personalities and the pair separated several years after the birth of their son. So acrimonious was their divorce that Sinan earned the title of "She who must not be named" amongst Lon's friends.

Lon's life would be forever changed in 2374 when he found himself on Betazed during the Dominion invasion of the planet. During the Occupation he put his science and engineering skills to use building weapons for the Resistance. A role he'd continue with despite losing his eyes during a rescue mission gone bad.

In 2393 Lon was part of the crew of the USS Proxima who were handed over to the Breen by the Federation in an effort to maintain peace following the destruction of the world of Hellas III. Convicted of a crime they didn't commit the crew were exiled to a maximum security Breen prison. They promptly escaped to the Cardassian demilitarized zone, stealing the Intrepid class USS Valhalla in the process, and set out proving their innocence. While they were unable to locate the people responsible for what had become known as 'The Hellas III Atrocity' the crew did gather enough evidence to prove their innocence.
