Biography Edit

Raakin was an augmented human being and the leader of a small group of similarly genetically enhanced humans active during the mid-2150s. Raakin's second in command was his lover, Persis, who had also developed an interest in another of their group named Malik.

In 2154, Raakin and several other Augments commandeered a Klingon Bird-of-Prey, killing all hands on board. With a powerful warship under their control, they set out to find their "father", the geneticist Doctor Arik Soong.

Malik believed that Raakin was a weak leader, but this was largely due to the fact that he coveted Raakin's authority as well as the affection of Persis. He conspired with Persis to take Raakin out and they set a trap for him in the bowels of the ship. Malik had convinced the other Augments to stand by his side, and Raakin found that that there was no one else willing to back him up. Malik stabbed Raakin through the stomach with a knife and left him for dead. [1]

When Doctor Soong eventually learned of Raakin's death, he was greatly saddened. [2]
