He and his sisters, Lwazanda, Lewella and Rwendra, spent a lot of time together at the Ral family's residence on the sea coast. Despite the difference in age between him and his sisters (almost 9 years at the least), Kestro and the girls got on famously.
When he was still quite young, his parents had their marriage dissolved. This time became turmultuous for him, but his sister's were no stangers to the situation (their own father having been Kemara's first husband, Kestro's her second.) they helped Kestro deal with the emotions attached to the situation.
When Kestro was old enough, he applied to the University of Betazed to study Psychology and Counseling. After his acceptance she studied for several years, with the intention of applying to Starfleet upon completion of his degree. He had always loved engaging with different races, so Starfleet seemed the logical choice to do so.

On the Galloway, Kestro had the honor of serving under a Betazoid Captain. Captain Hermie Sempla Daughter of the Ninth House of Betazed, took Kestro under her wing and guided him throught the winding river of Starfleet.
After only two years, Kestro was offered a transfer to the USS Vanderbilt, and experimental science vessel where he would serve as Counselor studying the mental effects of certain experiments the crew was undertaking. He jumped at the opportunity for a change.
Wit this new experience under his belt, Kestro set of into the unknown aboard the USS Ride.
