Personal History

Katya was born of Russian ancestry on the Federation planet Tessen III. Her family hails originally from St Petersburg. Her parents, who had met on Earth, moved to space to forge a new start to their failing marriage and the struggle to establish themselves on the new planet was tough. But it did bring them together and 2 years later the twins were born, the first in the Kuznetsov family line to be born outside Russia.

Early family life was hectic as it soon became apparent that the two twins were vastly different. Vita was quiet and passive but the young Katya was a real handful. Brought up by her mother primarily, she fought against her parents attempts to control her and bring her up in a structured, disciplined environment and was constantly expelled from school. As the girls developed Katya grew very jealous of her sister's abilities and obvious potential. The teenage Katya was constantly fighting with her parents, sister and peers and was finally chucked out of higher education for violently attacking a fellow pupil. Her mother attempted to home teach Katya but she continued to have a problem with rules and conformity.

From the ages of 16 however the girls relationship improved. Vita took a keen interest in her mother's profession and she enrolled to train as a geologist at 17. Katya's life, however, was not heading in a clearer direction. She missed her father who was always on assignment and rejected the possibility of continuing the family tradition of serving in Star Fleet. She could only hold down jobs temporarily and hated her fractured childhood. Katya got increasingly frustrated and depressed about her lack of aims and acheivements but found increasing comfort in her sister's arms as the pair began a deep friendship that would be tragically cut short.

As Katya grew older and was able to be left home alone Katya's mother began taking Vita on geology expeditions from the age of 19 to provide her with essential work experience and on the fourth such trip tragedy struck. As 20 year old Katya returned home from a bar job she was met by a family friend who broke the news of the accident. After surveying an underground cavern Vita had lost her footing on the return climb of a dangerous rockface. Her mother was at the top of the wall and could only watch her daughter fall. The whole family was devasted, her parents tried to remain strong but Katya was torn apart by the loss of her soulmate. She disappeared for a week before returning home wimpering and emancipated.

The grief and sense of loss had a profound impact on Katya and the process of burying and mourning for Vita finally pushed Katya back into her parents welcoming arms. While she never got over her sister's death Katya realised she had to make her parents proud and take the baton from her talented sister. At age 20 Katya enrolled at Star Fleet Academy much to the delight of her family and parents. Personality

Personal Paradigm Shifts

Most Painful Experience: The death of her twin sister Vita. The girls were inseparable at the time of the accident and the rebellious Katya had never had such a deep relationship. It was a catastrophic event in Katya's life and she still gets extremely emotional about her sister and the event
Best Time: Katya found a new sense of purpose and self-confidence after she committed to Star Fleet on her sister's death but she was happiest when curled up with Vita at home on Tessen III
Most Crucial Experience: Definately, but again, the death of her sister. It was the defining moment in Katya's life and is responsible for affecting every facet of Katya's life
Role Model: Her parents taught her to admire Yuri Gagarin and Valentina Tereshkova for being the first man and woman in space and hoped Katya would succeed them, and her father, in space. But when her sister died Katya realised how much she missed her and her virtues became the guides Katya aimed to follow.
