Avran later worked under Commander Tal'Mera for Republic Intelligence. His scout vessel was conducting reconnaissance in the Pheben System in preparations for an attack on a Tal Shiar convoy which was carrying supplies deemed vital to the Romulan Republic. However, Avran's ship was discovered, and he was captured by the Tal Shiar. At some point, however, Avran appearently either escaped or was rescued and made his way to New Romulus.
Avran is a believer in mnhei'sahe - the concept of a ruling passion that defines Romulans, and transcends petty revenge or pointless obedience. He is happy working on New Romulus, and prefers to think that his family would have been pleased with what the Romulan Republic is accomplishing on the planet.
- “Tradecraft”: Tal'Mera informs the player of Avran's mission and subsequent capture.
- “Vastam Peaks”: Avran informs the player that they can assist in the Vastam Peaks area by collecting rock samples, dealing with the local wildlife and providing security against Tal Shiar forces.
- It is unclear whether the Avran found on New Romulus is the same Avran described by Tal'Mera. If he is, it is unclear how he escaped the Tal Shiar's custody and came to be on New Romulus.
