Personal History

Xylia was born on Betazed. She was the product of her mothers phase. When her mother went through the phase, she had been unattached, her husband had died many years prior and she had been seeking something new. One night together was all it took for Xylia to be concieved though her mother never saw her father ever again. Her mother was never in love with him, he was what she needed at the time and so there was no real love lost. Except that she wished she could find him again and he could be in her daughter's life.

Her early life was pleasurable. Aside from wishing she had a father she had never truly wished for anything. She played and loved the world around her. She enjoyed exploring and had an intense love for finding out how things worked. She was gifted when it came to Science, she excelled in school and loved all the knowledge that she could gather.

Shortly after birth she was promised in marriage to a Betazoid man named Sorjah. As children they played together, both families feeling like a bond would do them well. Sorjah was a better status than Xylia, who without a father, was a little less looked upon. But, they two got off very well. They were friends through school and where he continued in a more Governmental way she went off through her science and learning and her love for the stars. Hours at the telescope, in the planetariums, mapping and charting the stars. Her love for chemicals and their reactions. Her adoration for how things worked and how to find answers when it semeed there were none.

When she was in the last years of her schooling she found out about the Starfleet Academy. It was then that her love of the stars and all her knowledge seemed to have a purpose. Not just to go on and be intelligent but actually change the world. She told her mother that she was joining the Academy. Her test scores were good and she was definitely worthy. Her mother raged, a marriage had been arranged and how dare she walk away from a man that would treat her well. But, while Xylia cared for Sorjah she did not love him and she did not want to be stuck in a marriage without any freedom. It was not just about love, that was a different thing that marriage most of the time in her culture but it was the fact that she wanted to explore herself. To use her knowledge and intelligence out there with others that were like minded.

Xylia ran away, using her own money earned through various jobs to get herself on a shuttle. She headed off to the Academy and worked hard to give herself everything that she wanted. The stars, the adventure, using her skills and knowledge on a daily basis. She found herself among some truly like minded people and had a blast. There she met Victoria, and the two made good friends. They were not in the same field but they found that they enjoyed quizzing each other on their studies. Victoria and Xylia were nigh on inseperable during their years of the Academy and they graduated together. Victoria was assigned to another ship when Xylia was ent to another fleet.

Love life has never been something that Xylia has excelled at. She has found more often than not that her abilities make her a target for terrible relationships. Once people realize that she's full Betazoid they start to grow paranoid about her abilities and when and where she uses them. Despite the fact that there is an actual code of ethics that she follows, it is still something that people don't easily trust. Now after having several really bad relationships end quickly and without trust she decided to stay away from them for now, until she is sure that she is trusted.

During one of her leaves she found a small exotic petstore on a starbase and found a little hedgehog that was dying to come home with her. After taking him home, she decided to name him Boo after the way that he peeks in and out and from around her things when she is working on the desk almost like he is playing peekaboo. Xylia recently transfered herself to the USS Gettysburg in the Science department.
