A Starfleet Science Officer and Lieutenant Commander initially on the U.S.S. Shenzhou and then on the U.S.S. Discovery, Saru is a Kelpien, an alien prey species that lives in a perpetual state of fear and has biologically fostered the ability to sense threats, particularly impending death. That ability is manifested in their threat ganglia, which pop up by their ears when a Kelpien perceives danger.
Following the destruction of the Shenzhou and the death of Captain Philippa Georgiou during the Battle at the Binary Stars in 2256, Saru – the first Kelpien to serve in Starfleet -- was promoted to First Officer on the Discovery under Captain Gabriel Lorca. He served as acting captain during and after the Discovery's excursion to the Mirror Universe, and also learned, much to his distress, that in the Mirror Universe, Kelpiens were not only slaves, but a delicacy.
