His son Zherek currently serves in the Andorian Imperial Guard. He and Shivaras are distant, but talk on occasion. Zherek feels abandoned by his father, who left to escape his repressive Andorian clan and military, and was unable to bring his son to Earth.

He enjoys ice climbing on the polar regions of Earth. During his time at the Academy, he often went to Ross City in Antarctica with three Andorian classmates.

Toron is a stern bridge presence and keeps his bridge colder and dryer than most human-captained vessels.
