Personal History
Shar's zhavey (or mother) was the Andorian representative to the Federation Council, Charivretha zh'Thane. After completing his education at Starfleet Academy at the top of his class Shar had already had several papers published and was fought over by several Starfleet scientists, eventually being assigned to the USS Tamberlaine.

In February of 2376 Shar was assigned to Deep Space Nine as science officer where he swiftly befriended station Chief of security, Lieutenant Ro Laren and chief engineer, Lieutenant Nog. When he and Nog were sitting inside Quark's bar, Shar's antenna detected the shrouded Jem'Hadar, Kitana'klan. It was Shar's quick action that followed that exposed the Jem'hadar's presence. Shortly after arriving on DS9, Shar began getting pressure from his zhavey to return home to Andor and participate in the shelthreth, the Andorian mating ritual, with his three bondmates. One call from her left him so infuriated he shattered the com unit with a sharp kick. The Andorian species, which requires a union between all four genders (chan, thaan, zhen, and shen) in order to reproduce, and had an ever shrinking window of fertility, was under going a reproductive crisis and was slowly dying out. Charivretha believed that Shar was ignoring his duty to his people by not returning home and adding to the population. Shar felt that the Andorian people were just delaying the inevitable and sought a more permanent, scientific, solution. During the Gateways crisis, Shar and Nog devised a procedure that temporarily knocked out the entire Gateway network. In June of 2376, Charvretha brought Shar's bondmates, Shathrissia zh'Cheen (or "Thriss"), Thavanichent th'Dani (or "Anichent") and Vindizhei sh'Rraazh (or "Dizhei") to the station in a final attempt to convince him to return home before Shar began a three month exploration tour of the Gamma Quadrant aboard the USS Defiant.

Shar compromised, promising to return home as soon as he returned from the Gamma Quadrant, a promise he had no intention of forgetting. Tragically, Thriss was so despondent over Shar's refusal to return home, that she committed suicide shortly after Shar's departure. Thriss and Shar had shared tezha, or sexual union outside of the shelthreth. This created a bond between Shar and Thriss outside of their bond with Dizhei and Anichent. While in the Gamma Quadrant, Shar obtained a supply of non-viable Yrythny eggs, whose genetic turn-key eventually provided a solution to the Andorian re-productive crisis by allowing Andorians to lengthen the window of fertility and increasing the number of children produced by a bond-group.

In November of 2376, Shar returned to Andor with Ensign Prynn Tenmei, his shipmate with whom which he was in the beginnings of a romantic relationship, to help save his zhaveys political position. While he was on Andor, he also attended Thriss's sending, or funeral. When Charivretha was kidnapped by political extremists who feared that the Yrythny eggs would be used to radically alter the Andorian species into only two genders, Shar, Prynn and Commander Phillipa Matthias set out on a rescue mission. They were accompanied by a zhen named Arenthialeh zh'Vazdi (or "Thia"), who was bondmate with the kidnappers, and didn't want to see them hurt. After the rescue, Thia's bondmates decided to dissolve their bonding with her. Shar, Anichent and Dizhei invited Thia to join their bond-group. Together, the four of them performed the sheltreth. Soon after, Thirishar ch'Thane took an extended leave of absence from Starfleet.

Sometime between November 2376 and 2378, Shar and his bondgroup volunteered to be part of the reproductive experiments run by Dr. sh'Veileth. They were able to conceive a child who was born without incident. Shar remained on Andor working with Dr. sh'Veileth until 2379 when he decided to end his extended leave from Starfleet and resume his duties. Shar was assigned to the new Deep Space Nine to fill the same post as Chief Science Officer. Shar and his bondgroup decided to attempt to conceive another child and so his bondgroup traveled to Deep Space Nine in order live with Lieutenant Shar on the station.
