|Personal History||Ziel served in the Starfleet Marine Corps, as an enlisted who made it to the rank of Sergeant within the Special Forces. A routine combat mission during the Dominion War saw him rise to the leader he was meant to be. His Lieutenant had been cut down during the most intense fighting, with three squad leaders paying for soil with their lives. With a shredded platoon and their numbers dwindling Ziel took command of the unit with only 23 marines left. The Jem'Hadar were pressing the attack, trying to advance, when Lee decided to break his platoon down into fire teams. His team stayed on the front while he ordered the other two teams to circle around and flank the enemy. Half of them had already been wounded in some fashion but not one of them complained or sat back. They were all ready for a little payback. Ziel himself had shrapnel in his back and left thigh from grenades and vehicles that had exploded around them. Despite his pain and suffering, seeing the enemy troops advancing on his people, Ziel stood up and charged. His grunts followed him, firing as they went, rushing in to challenge the enemy with melee and hand to hand. During this onslaught Lee suffered further wounds to his back and torso, dropping him to the ground where he lay on his side and used his pistol to kill his foes. During the battle he had passed out from pain and blood loss.
When Ziel awoke he tried to sit up, discovering he was in a hospital room, not on the battlefield. His spinal injuries, among others, had him down, with time being the only factor to his healing beyond all the medical treatments he was undergoing. While in traction Starfleet Command showed up, presenting Lee with the Bronze Star for heroism, and the mustang rank of 1st Lieutenant. The promotion meant more to him than he let on, but at the same time, whenever he looked at his new insignia, or the medal to go with it, all he could see were the faces of all those marines who had died that day. Those who had given the ultimate sacrifice so that he could receive commendations. It left a hole in his spirit.
Three years went by while he recovered and went through extensive physical therapy to be able to walk again. His spine had been surgically strengthened, but it took time for the symbiotic implants to grow and recoup what he had lost. While recovering Lee contacted SFMC HQ, and Starfleet Command, requesting that he be removed from the Corps and placed in Starfleet, as a JAG officer, which is what he had been studying and taking the tests for while recuperating. He had passed his bar exam and was ready to take up the mantle of counsel. It was approved without question.
