Background:

Dira identifies as pansexual and she/her. Her mother, Sesara, is a neuroscientist and father, Kesren, is an artist. She had a pretty adventurous childhood with a good mix of boundaries and freedom; her father especially believed in exploring and making mistakes. Parents amicably separated when she was young (6), but lived near each other and had a good relationship, so Dira’s upbringing was stable for the most part. Because of her mixed heritage, Dira’s abilities are strong and she rates as a full telepath.

Dira joined Starfleet just as the Dominion War was ending, so her residency was spent doing trauma counselling for both Starfleet personnel and their families.

She experienced a rough patch during her residency after a slew of her patients ended up with negative outcomes. It took her awhile to work through that before she regained her confidence and was able to separate circumstances from her ability to be a therapist.

In 2386, Dira’s partner, Paige Hester Sheppard (a security officer she had been in a relationship with for 3 years ), died during a first-contact mission. After three months, Dira requested a transfer, citing personal reasons.

In 2394, an away mission took a serious turn and Dira was forced to take charge of an away team, though she was a more junior officer to the team leader. Risking insubordination to do so, the rest of the away team supported the decision. It was this incident that prompted the psychiatrist to apply for the command training program.

Personality:

Dira is a compassionate and patient person, though exacting in her work and expectations of others. After her residency she was noted to become a much more cautious person, and she can at times get over-invested in shipmates beyond a professional level. She’s been aware of this tendency and taken steps to guard against this in her therapy practice.

She dresses in vibrant colours in rich fabrics off duty and enjoys being social. She’s notably, perhaps contrarily, a bit of slob when it comes to her personal quarters.
