Personal History Van Lars Kolbeck was born in the year 2356 to parents Erickson Lars Kolbeck and Jan-Holgersen Kolbeck. Mr. Erickson is retired living along with his wife, Mrs. Jan-Holgersen Kolbeck on Earth. Both live in the Scandinavian nation-state of Norway. The Kolbecks both worked in asteroid mining, purifying rare metals for Starship and warp core dilithium development.

Van is the eldest of two children. Born in the City of Oslo along with his sister Silje Jan-Holgersen Kolbeck in 2357. Early on the Kolbeck children were raised by the Family Nanny Anneliese Sanna Blomqvist who was 61. The Kolbeck children were raised by the Family Nanny as their parents were often away on assignment at Hanolan Colony in the Alpha Quadrant. Trying at times for Anneliese, the Kolbeck children were energetic. Anneliese helped the Children spend their seemingly limitless energy on competitive sports.

Education and study were the foremost constant within the Family. The Kolbeck taught their children that success and achievement were a prerequisite to receiving their fondness and love. While some Families may view this dynamic as being cruel, Van excelled in the tough love environment provided. Mathematics, Spatial field physics, and bio sciences all interconnected into Van's love for medical theory.

Reconnecting with nature and his home, the many natural surrounding fjords, and Norwegian forests help relax him.

His parents both became an inspiration to him, having worked at an orbital mining facility at the Federation Hanolan Colony from 2351 to 2373. The constant challenges and adventure energized his thirst for space travel. Above all the Kolbecks knack for ingenuity as a family fueled Van’s desire to leave Earth, seeking career challenges for sciences of the medical kind.
