Personal History

Family And Personal

Born in San Francisco to a Klingon mother and Human father. Her mother was assigned to the Klingon Embassy on Earth. Her father was a Lt[JG] in Starfleet, serving as a Presidential guard. Klintara refused to marry Jauffre, though she kept him as a lover. Char was raised by her mother in the Klingon Embassy, with occasional visits by her father. When she was four, her mother was reassigned to the Klingon Embassy on Andor, ending her relationship with Jauffre. He also quit playing father to Char. When she turned eight, owing to the rapid physical and mental maturation bestowed by her Klingon heritage, Char undertook the Right of Ascension. Despite completing the Right of Ascension, Char was never treated as fully Klingon by the other members of the Embassy, which disinclined her to join the KDF. So, she enlisted in Star Fleet at the age of eight. High aptitude scores and excellent physical condition allowed her to complete Star Fleet Basic Training as a Crewman Recruit. From there, she rose rapidly through the ranks, attaining Petty Officer First Class in ten years. She spent the next ten years advancing to Master Chief Petty Officer. Her entire career has been spent in Star Fleet Security. That, combined with her hard work, has made her one of the most sought after Master Chiefs in Star Fleet Security. When the Klingon border was closed, her mother, a supporter of Emperor Kahless, deemed it to be her duty to return to the Empire. Her transport, which carried several other members of the various Klingon Embassies, was destroyed by Kalok’s forces when it tried to cross into Imperial space. Since her promotion to SCPO, Char’s father, now a Captain serving as CO of Deep Space: Five, has tried to play the role of father to her, thus far making three attempts to re-establish their relationship. Each time, Char turned down his attempts.

While onboard the USS Spector, Char met her first serious lover, Jill Ravenna, with whom Char became very close. Their relationship continued after Char was transferred to the USS Sovereign, despite the long periods of time their careers kept them apart. They were rejoined when both of them eventually ended up on the USS Powell, where their relationship flourished. Their relationship was brought to a halt by the Borg invasion, and Jill's assimilation into the collective. In order to effect her own escape, Char was forced to kill her former lover, now a Borg Drone.

While serving aboard the USS Drake and Dauntless, Char become romantically involved with Lieutenant {Junior Grade} Ruth "Danni" Merez. This was the first time since Jill's death that Char had decided to pursue a meaningful relationship. Char's relationship with Danni did not last, as Char's hesitance regarding long-term relationships and her own promiscuous nature combined to drive Danni away.

Early Career

Her career was eventful from the start, as she completed Star Fleet Basic Training as a Crewman Recruit one year before the General War broke out. She served aboard an Akira-class ship for much of the war, before being transferred to the USS Sovereign for the last year of the war, where she served until the ship was decommissioned in the Fleet reorganization. While deployed to Setlik III, which was under attack by Cardassian and Jem’Hadar forces, Char was wounded while fighting hand-to-hand against a Jem’Hadar soldier, receiving a deep cut on her right cheek that nearly penetrated her skull. Due to the length of the battle and the fact that Star Fleet forces were temporarily cut off from their ships, Char elected to only receive minimal treatment for the wound. While she allowed her cheekbone and the worst of the gash to be healed, she chose to let the wound fully heal on its own. As a result she bears a scar, which she wears as a badge of honor. She was assigned to a frigate, the USS Oslo, where she served until her promotion to CPO. While the Oslo was docked for a refit, she was reassigned to a destroyer, the USS Powell. A year later the Second Romulan War broke out. She served aboard the USS Powell for the duration of the War, and took part in a major battle near the Bassen Rift. She was the sole survivor of the Powell, when it was boarded by the Borg while en route to the Sol System. While the ship was left mostly undamaged, the entire crew, except Char, was assimilated and beamed back to the Borg cube. Char was the only member of the crew who was able to reach the escape pods. She was rescued by the light cruiser, USS Tyr, where she was added to the crew. The USS Tyr rushed to join the combined Alpha Quadrant fleets in the battle to save Earth. After the Borg were eliminated, Char was promoted to SCPO and permanently assigned to the USS Tyr. Two years later she accepted a posting at Star Fleet Basic Training as a Drill Instructor. The following year, she was promoted to MCPO and reassigned to the USS Drake.

Later Career

Char served on the USS Drake during the ship's final mission to investigate a series of disappearances and strange sensor readings along one of the Federation's trade routes. The ship made first contact with a race called the Gy'sch, who made their home in a stable subspace pocket. The alien race had been abducting freighter crews in order to study means of dissection. The Gy'sch attempted to capture the Drake, and were repelled, but both the Captain and First Officer were abducted. The Drake was able to follow the Gy'sch back to their homeworld, within their subspace pocket, and was able to rescue the Captain and First Officer. After the Drake returned to home port, the ship was deactivated and slated for refit. The majority of the crew, including Char, were transferred to the USS Dauntless, which was just completing a refit of her own.

Char served aboard the Dauntless for one year, participating in two missions with the Battlecruiser. The first was a rescue mission to the planet Tekna, accompanied by the USS Copernicus. During that mission the Dauntless encountered a pair of rogue Cardassian ships, and Char was assigned to interrogate the prisoners taken by the Copernicus crew. The mission ended in failure, as the planet, suffering from severe tectonic instability, tore itself apart before the majority of the population could be rescued. Of four million inhabitants, only twelve thousand were saved. Char's last mission with the Dauntless involved an encounter with some kind of advanced race, who somehow managed to put the ship through a series of temporal loops, as part of some kind of test. During one of these time-loops, Char lost consciousness, and has been unable to remember any of the details of the encounter, except for the fact that the beings encountered used some sort of remote device to attack members of the crew.

Char was then transferred back to Earth, to serve once more as a Drill Instructor at the Starfleet Basic Training facility in San Francisco. She served in that capacity for a year, before being transferred back into fleet duty, this time aboard the frigate, USS Columbia.

On the Columbia, Char served as part of a detail escorting Captain Adaran on a routine mission to relocate an Intelligence Listening Station. While the relocation was in progress, Romulan terrorists captured the station personnel. Char, along with other members of the security detail, were able to free themselves and aid in freeing the other captured personnel, as well as eliminate the terrorists.

On the Columbia's next mission, Char remained aboard ship heading up the ship's security patrols, while the ship carried out an Intelligence gathering mission deep inside enemy controlled territory.

The Columbia's following mission to destroy an Uihvueri supply depot also ended in failure, this time due to a security leak that alerted the Uihvueri to the threat. They responded by enlisting the aid of three Tal'Shiar warships, who laid a trap for the Columbia in the form of a disabled freighter. During the battle, the Columbia was boarded, which resulted in numerous injuries to many of the Columbia's officers. Char was also wounded in the fighting to secure the ship. While the mission had to be aborted, the crew was successful in defeating the boarding parties. With the help of Captain Adaran and Lieutenant Giraath (who were in a stolen Romulan shuttle) and a newly designed Imperial Romulan ship, the Columbia succeeded in defeating all three Tal'Shiar ships.

Prejudices: hates Jem’Hadar, Vorta, and Founders. She dislikes Cardassians and Mirak. Char doesn’t much care for Klingons, though she has no problem working with them. Char is particularly fond of Edo, Risans, Andorians, and Orion women.
Off Duty Clothing Tastes: Snug, but comfortable tank-tops and pants or shorts, she prefers black and other dark colors. She occasionally wears close fitting dresses, of similar design as her tank-tops. Char almost always wears twin tajtiqs, worn at each hip.
Distinguishing Features: Scar on right cheek, just below the eye; tattoo of herself in a Risan wedding dress on her left shoulder blade; tattoo of thorny vine with three black roses (a large rose between two smaller ones) on the small of her back.

Their bond deepened during the Romulan War, but their reunion was short lived. Jill, along with the rest of the Powell’s crew, was assimilated by the Borg when the Powell unexpectedly ran into the invasion force as it headed toward the Sol system. After watching Jill become a Borg drone, Char was forced to kill her to reach the escape pod.
