- This page details a counterpart of Sybok in the Kelvin timeline created by Nero's temporal incursion; for the Sybok in the primary universe see Sybok.
Born in 2224, he was the first son of Ambassador Sarek and the Vulcan princess T'Rea, Sybok would later become the half-brother of Spock. His birth came as a result of the only mating between his parents and his existence was kept secret from his father Sarek. Shortly after this event, his mother divorced his father and ascended to the position of High Master of Gol; a position which meant that she was perfectly within her right to annul the marriage. (TOS novel: Sarek, Star Trek (App))
Sybok was only three seasons old when his mother received illumination and took the position of High Master. His name was an archaic word which meant "seer" or "prophet" which was because his mother believed that he would become the salvation of his people.
From a young age, his mother taught him that emotions need not be suppressed but rather should be embraced which meant that he did not believe in the logical teachings of Surak-though he did hide this fact from other Vulcans. The young Sybok was given the name Shiav, which was an ancient word from the Vulcan language long dead religion which, when translated, meant "messiah" as she believed he would unite all religions by finding "The Source" known as Sha Ka Ree.
