His time as a field operative meant he had to keep in physical shape, something he still maintains to this day.
He has a beard which he trims to fit in with regulations. Very rarely does he appear clean shaven only if required to for an operation or at the request of his Commanding Offficer
Yuri has a prominent Russian accent, but he speaks fluent English. Only resorting to his native tongue when angered or for translation purposes.
His hair is of medium length, which is kept cropped at the back and sides but with a fair amount on the top. He does sometimes cut it short when it suits him.
On both of his arms he has tattoo sleeves that highlight part of his youth and heritage. He also has tattoos on his chest and back.

Personality & Traits
|General Overview||At first glance Yuri can appear as quite an intimidating individual given his height and imposing build. However in reality he is an easy going kind of man, he likes a joke and speaks several fluent languages.
He originally enlisted in Starfleet at 18 years old, same as his father and brother. He only became an Officer at the request of his CO on the USS Premonition, who saw the leadership potential in him.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||He is a man with a very broad background of knowledge, with skills as a Phaser and Disruptor Expert, which has served him well up to now. he knows a little about Command having taken his Bridge Officers Courses and a bit of experience with Explosives.
Yuri does tend to speak his mind and voice his opinion whether it is requested or otherwise. This is one thing some see as his biggest fault.
|Ambitions||In his youth all Yuri wanted to do was join Starfleet and see the Universe. He enlisted and got the opportunity after completing basic training. He never originally intended to become and Officer but once he was awarded the opportunity he felt it only seemed right to work his way up the ranks and see what was out there.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Off Duty, Yuri is a massive history buff and likes to broaden his knowledge base on old earth history and that of Andorians or Vulcans. He also reads Crime Fiction from the 21st Century.
He has a big love of Ice Hockey, taking time to watch games when he visits Earth.
|Personal History||Yuri was born on the New Washington Colony at the Federation Outpost that was located there. His father was a Security Officer and his mother was a teacher. Though being a Starfleet child he was shifted back and forth from deployment to deployment, he always considered New Washington to be his home.
He enlisted in Starfleet at the age of 18 following in his father footsteps though he chose Security and Tactical as his field. Completing his Basic Training he was assigned as a Tactical Specialist on the USS Phalanx. For the most part his time on Phalanx was about gathering Tactical information on Alpha Quadrant races such as the Klingons and Cardassians.
The onset of the Dominion War changed that. He was involved in numerous engagements with the Dominion. He became something of a good luck charm for his shipmates. Yuri was commended numerous times for his actions and you wars end he was moved to Earth as a Petty Officer Third Class.
His time on Earth was brief as his knowledge in Phasers and Disruptors resulted in him becoming assigned to
Project EDEN, a chance for Starfleet to use the end of war to examine the technology they captured from the Dominion and its allies. This wasn't a job for him, though he did enjoy it he felt a Deep Space assignment suited him better. 18 mothis later he moved to the USS Premonition.
Premonition was his big break, the Galaxy Class Starship was assigned to the Gamma Quadrant to continue the exploration efforts that were on hold during the War. Unofficially they were there to make sure the Dominion upheld the Treaty of Bajor. In 2378 he was assigned to an Away Team alongside the Captain, and as a Petty Officer First Class he had responsibility. The mission was simple make first contact with a prominent power who were looking to open negotItions with the federation. However their Runabout was attacked and crashed on the Tropical part of the planet. With the Captain injured and the Pilot Dead, Yuri was forced to take Command and ensure their survival.
Following their return to the Premonition and subsequent re-cooperation, Yuri was awarded a commendation and at the request pod his CO was transferred back to Earth to undergo Officer training. An unexpected turn of events. He completed his training at the Academy and finished in the top 10 of his class.
The much older Ensign was assigned to Deep Space operations in the Romulan Sector following the Shinzon incident of 2379. While much of his time there is fairly straightforward he was promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade in 2382 and served at Starfleet Tactical as an Analyst and Team Leader, with free lance work as a Small Unit Tactics Instructor at Starfleet Academy.
He moved to Starbase 456 in 2385 as Chief Tactical Officer and Lieutenant. In 2387 he was wounded in action following a terrorist attack and following a sabbatical to recover from his injuries he returned as Second Officer in addition to his Tactical Duties.
He was assigned to Starfleet Security on Earth in 2389 and continued to freelance instruct at the Academy. He became a Lieutenant Commander in 2390.
As of 2392 he is currently waiting for Deep Space deployment.
