STAR FLEET PERSONNEL COMMAND FILE
|Adylystys Orrana Phazarus|
|Position:||Chief Science Officer|
|Assignment:||USS Darwin, GEC-9000|
|Species:||Andorian/Aenar (an Andorian subspecies)|
|Height:||173 cm (5 ft. 8 in.)||Weight:||61.2 kg (135 lb.)|
|Eye Color:||An icy ocean blue.|
|Hair Color:||Though the Andorian hair color is typically white, growing up on Earth in the city of Chicago instead of the frozen Andorian homeworld has given Adyle’s hair a rather lovely platinum blonde hue. Her parents chide her for sitting in the sun constantly as a child as this is what has changed her hair color, but she couldn’t help it. It was always so warm and inviting.|
|Hairstyle:||Adyle is bored by the typical straight hair of her people, so she has styled her hair into softly rolled corkscrew curls.|
|Physique:||Adyle prides herself on having a healthfully sized body, but with muscular upper arms. Having something of an exoskeleton makes it possible for Adyle to have an easier time avoiding physical damage. She has a prosthetic Borg hand.|
|Complexion:||Smooth, pale blue skin.|
|Voice:||Adyle prefers to enter her personal logs in text instead of visual recordings because she hates how pinched and nasal her voice sounds during playback. Growing up in the Midwest gave Adyle a slightly lower sounding, nasal voice. Adyle understands why in ancient early 20th century Earth no one believed that movies with sound would ever catch on. How awful they sounded!|
|Affiliation:||United Federation of Planets|
|Father:||Dr. Eleban Phazarus. An aquatic animal ethologist, Eleban works at Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium in the current experimental testing of telepathy on dolphins. According to the latest research from Betazed, Earth dolphins not only have a stable enough mindset to be read by telepathic races of aliens, but they show signs of being telepathic themselves. The issue is controversial and needs further study. Adyle's father was raised in a clan that taught Eila Clahd, a back-to-nature faith which decries technological advancement. He remains attached to nature through his career, but as an ethologist accepts technological advancement and the benefits that come with it.|
|Mother:||Myrid Phazarus. A former leader of the rebellion movement on Andoria when the Romulans attacked, Myrid moved with her family to Earth in the hopes that they would be safer with the pink-skins. However, the drooping economy has made things slightly difficult, but with Myrid’s battle knowledge, she is now an official officer of security and tactics in Chicago’s famous Precinct 302. (Read: police officer) Adyle's mother is a strong practitioner of Umarinism, a popular modern religious construct advocating the duty of Andorians to keep their passionate warrior natures alive and strong to set a holy example for the less passionate races of the Federation.|
|Status of Parents:||Both have been married for nearly 30 Earth years. The typical Andorian aggression makes her parents fight constantly, but there is a lot of love and passion in the marriage as well. Adyle's parents are notoriously private people (something they were picked on for while growing up on Andoria) and preferred not to be married in the traditional Andorian manner of the quad, four people (two couples) together in the same living space. They wanted to raise their children in a different setting.|
|Siblings:||Larussi, an 18 year old younger sister.|
|Marital Status:||Adyle is single and looking, or so she tells her mother. Adyle finds the prospect of marriage rather romantic, after reading about the ancient love story of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Adyle used to pine for her ex-fiancé, Blaine Baumgartner, but when he showed up intoxicated on Starbase Alpha and tried to win her back, she realized he had changed and dumped him for good. She then had a brief and torrid affair with Deimos Frarg while on board the Philadelphia, but left him to go to the Dauntless.|
Adyle was only a baby when her parents came from Andoria to Chicago, Illinois on Earth. She doesn’t remember much of her homeworld, only that it was cold a lot of the time. Adyle's first memory is being wrapped in several blankets and being carried by her father in the icy wind to a transport ship for the ride to their new home. Adyle grew up surrounded by animals and was taught early on to have a respect for all living things. She had many dogs and spent many happy trips with her family going to oceanic settings so that her father could do his research. On one of the trips where the Phazarus family studied humpback whales in Alaska, Adyle jumped into the ocean because she wanted to make as big of a splash as the whales did. (This is another facet of Adyle and her family that makes them slightly odd...most Andorians hate water and don't like to swim.) She became permanently turned off by insects at age two by finding a gigantic spider that had crawled into her bed. < br />
Growing up, Adyle did not often get to choose the clothes she wanted to wear. Myrid had very strict rules about what was acceptable. Shirts always had to be tucked in, there were always many "gadgets" to be undone, making it impossible to use the bathroom sometimes without spending hours attempting to undo belts, ties, etc. Tight preppy shoes were not uncommon in young Adyle's wardrobe. Adyle always felt saavy at an early age and was irritated by her mother's constant attempt to exaggerate things in order to make her own viewpoint appear in a positive light. (At age 11 Adyle deliberately deleted some important personnel files her mother was working on for Andoria's Air Force due to just being mad at her mom. Her mother has believed it was an accident ever since and doesn't need to know the real story!) Once her mother stopped working from home for the Andorian military and became a police officer, Adyle felt happier because her mother was not at home as much. As a general rule, Adyle is closer to her father than her mother but still loves both parents very much.
Adyle is more of a solitary person, unlike her younger sister, Larussi. Larussi had many friends growing up, did all the things a "typical" schoolgirl was supposed to do (joining many clubs and going to many sporting events). Larussi has an even more violent temper than Adyle, her public face is much nicer than when she lashes out at everyone in their home. Though they fought a great deal of the time in their childhood and generally hated each other, Adyle and Larussi get along more now that Larussi is older. Larussi will be attending Western Illinois University in Macomb and Adyle hopes living on her own will teach her more responsibility and patience with others.
Adyle went to public school, was teased a lot and had some good friends, but they are mostly gone now. She was mostly teased because of her anti-drug and anti-excessive alcohol stance, as well as her intelligence level. Once in a seventh grade English class with not so bright peers, Adyle scored the only A on a test, and so the students spread an awful rumor that Adyle was having an affair with the teacher to get such a good grade. This devastated Adyle, frightened her to death, and made her literally terrified of going to school. Once it died down a couple days later, Adyle returned to classes again, but from then on was always paranoid and made just enough friends to get by. Adyle graduated in the top 10% of her high school class and is fluent in Klingon as well as English and Andorian. (Adyle does not miss public school one bit!) As for these people she went to school with, Adyle was stabbed in the back by two of her best friends. They wound up either finding her to be too boring to be friends with or used her as a stepping stone to get to other people. Adyle hasn't made real friends since.
When Adyle was 16, she developed panic disorder, depression, and OCD. Heart racing and hyperventilation prevented Adyle from getting out of the house and doing anything that she loved, as well as eating any of the foods that she used to enjoy. It was a terrifying experience to feel so out of touch with the world, and to realize that the universe was essentially continuing without her while she was stuck in this whirling tornado of misery. After threats of suicide when Adyle felt she could not go on with such an illness, she was placed in the psychiatric ward of Chicago's Mercy Hospital for two weeks. She remembers feeling very out of touch at those times, heavily sedated and feeling stuck between a bad dream and the sense of being awake. Adyle remembers nightmares of being trapped in a coffin or cave-like place and screaming for her mother and father while the other children in the ward (some as young as eight) tried desperately to comfort her. She has since recovered through doctor's visits, medication, and her ex-fiancé, Blaine (see next paragraph) but is not without massive mental and emotional scarring.
Adyle met the love of her life, Blaine Baumgartner, a tricorder designer from England, through an international penpal program. Seven years older than she, they met when she was eighteen and became fast friends, which quickly developed into something more when she saw how much of soulmates they were. They had so much in common personality-wise. He taught her that not all people were bad and some were even good and decent. Blaine and Adyle dated for four years, carrying on a long distance relationship, traveling back and forth from the USA to the UK to see each other while Adyle attended Star Fleet Academy. Both were going to get married but they clashed too much, fighting constantly because of the tension from living so far apart. He felt she was too careless, hostile, and mistrusting of others, she felt he was too trusting of others and didn't have the guts to actually dislike a person, along with being (what she felt) was much too close to his family, being too attached to his youngest brother and mother to be able to live without them. Adyle should have known better, but even though they agreed their split was for the best, she was shattered. She cried for weeks and ate hardly anything. However, Adyle was finally convinced it was the right thing to leave Blaine after his behavior on Starbase Alpha.
Adyle had a love affair with her friend Deimos Frarg, but abandoned him to transfer to the Dauntless. She feels just as much as she did upon the breaking-up with her fiance just a couple years earlier.
Academy Major(s): Mammalian Ethology.
Academy Minor(s): General Biology.
Hobbies and Pastimes: Adyle enjoys old Earth things, such as ancient rock music and films from their World War II era. She has also found a love of the romance found in Earth’s ancient Victorian era and the clothing, although she would never wear it (why would humans wear something like a corset that so obviously damages their anatomy and is painful just to look good?). It makes no sense to her. Adyle loves jewelry, especially vintage pieces, and it is something she knows she will have to leave behind once she gets to the Academy. She is familiar with all periods in Andorian art, but is most fond of ancient Greek Earth art and this style called “Impressionism.” Adyle can frequently be found in her parents’ holodeck, sitting in the audience watching ancient rock artists who are long dead and sometimes, when she is in the mood, getting up on stage and singing along. Adyle loves to make herself part of these things that she loves, sometimes she wishes that life could still be as it was during these times. Adyle also loves animals (except Earth insects, things that make her shudder), something she has picked up from her father, but especially treasures wolves.
Short-Term Goals: Adyle wishes to see different worlds and study different cultures.
Long-Term Goals: Adyle wants to settle down at a museum eventually, starting as a guide and eventually working her way up to curator. She wants to eventually be married and find a soulmate, though she would like to avoid the typical Andorian quad marriage if at all possible.
Personality: As she grows older, Adyle gets a warmer personality. She is easily able to get along with people (when she feels they are genuine and not being hateful towards her), but deep within still feels that bitter shyness and paranoia, therefore remaining distant from most people at all times.
Sense of Humor: Adyle has a very dry sense of humor, and at times enjoys humor that is very arbitrary or even weird/bizarre. She enjoys puns when they are not too awful.
Phobias: Adyle is claustrophobic and is frightened of enclosed spaces. Because of her OCD, she also has some illogical fears, though she knows in her right mind that they are not true. (See “Prejudices” section).
Likes: Adyle is a big fan of what pink-skins call “comfort food.” She very much enjoys different Earth cheeses and chocolate. Adyle has also delved into the “Earth’s Musical History” files of her father’s computer and discovered a love for ancient rock music. She can often be found listening to the likes of Pink Floyd, Yes, Journey, Billy Joel, Phil Collins, and other Earth termed “hair bands.” She smiles whenever she hears those words because her Klingon friend K’Mel always found these bands to look like warriors. Adyle likes it when men tend to be old-fashioned and chivalrous because it is so rare these days. She also likes genuinely nice people, ones that attempt to get along with everyone and don’t use the harsh words she was used to hearing while growing up in Chicago.
Dislikes: Adyle dislikes loud, obnoxious partying humans, and any being that prefers ignorance and war over a life of peace (though she is an Andorian and can easily be talked into taking up arms against an injustice, be it verbal weaponry or physical weaponry.) She also will not allow anyone to eat on her bed because the thought of crumbs and such substances in her sleeping area are disgusting. She also dislikes Earth’s public transportation because they never seem to clean the seats on ANYTHING, but the dirt and germs do not prevent her from traveling, she simply is turned off by it.
Pet Peeves or Gripes: Adyle does not easily tolerate small-mindedness. She has read about old Earth prejudices and some seem to be coming back with the economy’s downfall. If people cannot afford to get an education, that is one thing, but to deliberately remain ignorant is another. This seems to be a constant struggle with the pink-skins. Adyle recalls the ancient Earth song and thinks of the line, “I can’t understand what makes a man hate another man.” Of course, Adyle doesn’t mind distaste for someone or something if it is justified, but she will not accept hate simply due to race, creed, gender or sexual orientation. Adyle can’t stand stupidity when there is such an easy cure for it. Adyle has also hated people making fun of her name. A common jibe in her Advanced Placement classes was calling her “Eucalyptus Lazarus.” She hates the menthol smell of the plant that sounds like her name, and dislikes the religious reference brought on by one intolerable Baptist boy from Alabama. She has nothing to do with bringing back the dead or this prophet of theirs. Besides, her family name is correctly pronounced PhaZARus. At least no one has come up with “The farmer in Adyle” yet. Adyle also dislikes loud, obnoxious partying humans with foul language and illegal substances.
Achievements: Adyle has earned several scholarships and recommendations to put her through Star Fleet Academy. She got these primarily through her study of art history, her reading skills, and her ability to write creative fiction. Through hard work and dedication, Adyle was promoted to Lieutenant Commander and to the position of Chief Science Officer.
Disappointments: Once when she was 16, Adyle was supposed to take a 3 month tour of Vulcan, but was forced to call off her trip due to serious illness (see below). She has not left the planet Earth yet. She also broke up with her fiancé and lover aboard the Philadelphia.
Illnesses: Adyle, due to extreme stress in her school life, mentally broke when she was 16 and was diagnosed with panic disorder, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Frequent panic attacks left her unable to eat because of severe stomach pain, and she lost the ability to leave the house or travel for an extended period of time. She was able to remedy the situation through doctor’s visits and counseling, but the illnesses have left extreme scars on her life.
On a recent mission to Karadon, Adyle was exposed to warp radiation for too long and developed temporary radiation insanity. This caused her to phaser off her own left hand, which is why she wears the prosthetic.
Strengths: Like most Andorians, Adyle is very temperamental. However, she prides herself on being able to use her anger to her advantage in professional situations, and as far as she can remember, she has only really “exploded” in front of her family and former friends as far as her temper goes. Adyle has a Borg hand, which is equipped with several gadgets, such as a phaser and scanner. Both these things give her enormous tensile strength, though not comparable to a Klingon or the android Data.
Adyle, being half Aenaran, which is a subspecies of Andorians, is telepathic, but fairly new to the practice. She makes a lot of mistakes and has much to learn.
Weaknesses: Though she hates to admit it, Adyle wears her heart on her sleeve and can be made to cry very easily. She knows this is something she will have to work on if she wants to be a Star Fleet officer. Adyle is very nitpicky about flaws in people and this keeps her from making good friends most of the time. This will also have to go if she wants to be a good Star Fleet officer. Adyle has felt alone much of her life in her interests, so she tends to become very aggressive if someone attacks what she likes or if she feels she cannot relate to someone. This is partially due to a slight paranoia left over from her depression. If one looks at Adyle crossways, she is apt to feel inside as if they are picking on her or dislike her.
Fears: Besides being claustrophobic, Adyle fears she will never truly make a good friend, or will die without a mate by her side. (Remember that Adyle is romantic and believes in the old fashioned kind of love.).
Prejudices: Adyle tends to raise her eyebrows at humans with Southern accents because Earth has so typically portrayed them as foolish people who prefer to live a backwards way of life other than an enlightened one. Though Adyle does not outwardly show it, her OCD makes her act rather gingerly around humans of different sexual orientations, aliens with strange sexual practices, or particularly violent races of aliens. (She fears that somehow these behaviors could rub off onto herself, though she knows that it isn’t true at all.).
Off Duty Clothing Tastes: Adyle doesn’t like to dress up much. She prefers a simple gray dress of soft cotton or the ancient 20th century jeans called “bellbottoms” with a loose-fitting top. Everyone stares at her for wearing something so obviously old, but she doesn’t mind it. That is what her passion is.
Distinguishing Features: Adyle always prefers to be wearing some form of vintage Earth jewelry. She knows this won’t be acceptable for the Star Fleet dress code, but wonders if she can get away with perhaps a single ring, or a thin silver choker just hidden under the collar of her uniform… Besides, she feels rather naked without SOMETHING on. Adyle's left hand has been replaced with a Borg prosthetic which gives great tensile strength. It looks like the hand of Seven of Nine, but only with blue skin. The implants that help control it are hidden under her hairline. It has such features as a small phaser, hand scanner, knife blade, and other attributes that can be adapted with interchangeable fingers. All electrical components are powered by internal solarized cells. Solar power is gathered through direct contact with light.
Pets: Nirak, a wolfdog hybrid from a local rescue organization. The old fears humans had about wolves are long gone, but people neglecting animals is still a problem, and the rescue organizations have had to continue. Adyle is still required to keep Nirak on a leash whenever she takes him for a walk. Adyle loves wolves. She feels they are sometimes misunderstood, like herself.
Friends: Adyle is shy and doesn’t really have friends, only acquaintances. She was tormented a lot while growing up, not because she was an Andorian, but because she was smart and excelled in school while the rest of the students goofed off. Adyle tended to be sarcastic and angry when she was snubbed or made fun of, something that turns off a lot of humans. Previous backstabbing experiences have made Adyle mistrust people and she remains distant from most. She still waits for that good friend to come along, one she will hopefully meet in Star Fleet.
Personal Paradigm Shifts
Most Painful Experience: When Adyle was 16, she developed panic disorder, depression, and OCD. Heart racing and hyperventilation prevented Adyle from getting out of the house and doing anything that she loved, as well as eating any of the foods that she used to enjoy. It was a terrifying experience to feel so out of touch with the world, and to realize that the universe was essentially continuing without her while she was stuck in this whirling tornado of misery. She has since recovered but is not without massive mental and emotional scarring.
Best Time: Adyle holds the five years of dating her ex-fiancé, a human named Blaine Baumgartner seven years her senior, closest to her heart because he was (and still is) the love of her life. What they believed to be irreconcilable differences drove them apart (her Andorian aggression, his stubbornness) but he is still a close friend and hangs around in the background. Adyle intends to get him back--he just doesn't know it yet.
Most Crucial Experience: When Adyle encountered a tame wolf for the first time, she was awed and inspired. Here was not a bloodthirsty creature as humans believed, but a beautiful, swift hunter relying on family and friends to survive. This put forward her continuing love for animals and nature. When she last visited Chicago's Shedd Aquarium six months ago, Adyle watched the dolphins and quietly thought of a song she liked, when a dolphin swam up and, in her mind, mentally repeated the song back to her word for word, note for note. Amazed, she tried it again and the dolphin performed the same feat. She alerted her father, Eleban Phazarus, the Shedd's resident aquatic animal ethologist, and thus began research into the telepathic abilities of dolphins.
Role Model: Adyle admires her father for seeing so much in nature where other humanoid aliens see themselves as the only superior beings on the planet. Adyle admires the long-gone singers of the ancient rock bands she listens to, feeling they were the only ones who were able to grasp what life is all about in music.
