Background:

Sharah is an overly-sensitive telepath/empath. Unlike other Betazoids, whose talents turn on at adolescence, hers were turned on at birth. The over stimulation can cause mental shut down and require hospitalization if strict care is not taken. With extreme training Sharah has trained herself to ignore the ‘noise’ even though she is unable to turn it off and constantly “hears” the thoughts and feelings of others. This noise is similar to being a large room with hundreds of people talking at once. The noise comes at such a fast rate, Sharah is unable to actually process what she hears. With extreme concentration it is possible, but the extreme fatigue afterwards makes this dangerous and not worth the risk. This is a rare condition on her planet, only a fraction of 1% are diagnosed. She has been followed by a team of doctors her entire life. As a child she was hospitalized for her condition on 3 occasions, at 1, 5, and 15 years of age. Soon after her arrival for her cadet cruise, Sharah suffered what at first appeared to be a severe mental breakdown. It was soon discovered she had been infected by an unknown parasite that fed and bred exponentially off her paracortex. Her DH was able to develop an antiparasitic to remove them and Sharah has been well since then. Her condition can make her appear distracted, but she is not.

Sharah made top grades in her class despite the difficulties her ‘gift’ had the potential to cause. She is a skilled doctor excelling in diagnostics and survival medical treatment. She is an accomplished surgeon, though she needs an extremely focused support staff to ensure their thoughts do not interfere with her work on the patient. She has a minor in Botany. Her cadet project consisted of collecting a database of chemical compounds needed for basic medical care so that those compounds could be searched for in native areas among plants and other vegetation. This list will help those in emergency situations to find medicines when medical supplies are not available. When assigned to the Europa, she was recalled to the Academy to finish her research, allowing her to build on her medical and botanical knowledge and skills.

Personality:

Sharah loves books and has some talent with sketching. She spends a lot of time researching for her pet projects. Sharah works well with her medical colleagues and is described and compassionate and thoughtful with her patients and easy to work with. These traits flow over into her few personal friendships. Her condition requires a lot of downtime to maintain her mental equilibrium. She prefers small social gatherings being most comfortable with one-on-one interactions or 3 to 4 people. Despite a severe lack of physical coordination, she has a daring streak and will try almost anything at least once.

Medical Record

Sharah is an over-sensitive telepath/empath. Unlike other Betazoids, whose talents turn on at adolescence, hers were turned on at birth. This over stimulation can cause mental shut down and require hospitalization if strict care is not taken. As a child she was hospitalized for her condition on 3 occasions, at 1, 5, and 15 years of age. Soon after her arrival for her cadet cruise, Sharah suffered what at first appeared to be a severe mental breakdown. IT was soon discovered she had been infected by an unknown parasite that fed and bred exponentially off her paracortex. Her DH was able to develop an antiparasitic to remove them and Sharah has been well since then.

Service Record:

Graduated with honors from Star Fleet Academy. Majors in emergency and diagnostic medicine. She is a skilled doctor excelling in diagnostics and survival medical treatment. She is an accomplished surgeon, though not at the top of her class, though she needs and extremely focused support staff to ensure their thoughts do not interfere with her work on the patient. She has a minor in Botany. Her cadet project researched the viability of using local plant life to create emergency medications for away team members who were cut off from medical aid. A training program was developed to teach the skills needed to implement the research. The program also tests the viability of the medicines developed. Her project was approved and then passed completion. She plans to continue to develop the database and training program as part of her regular duties or on her own during her off hours.

Psychological Profile:

Sharah was in counseling several times a week with a Neuropsychologist at the Academy. Before that she saw several psychology experts on Betazed starting from about a month old..

Sharah regularly sees a counselor to help her work through all the extra input as well as her own individual mental state.

She has a hard time making friends, and there was an incident her first year at the Academy that has shaped her opinion of herself and her relationships with her crew and classmates.

Sharah loves books and has some talent with sketching. She spends a lot of time researching for her pet projects. Sharah works well with her medical colleagues and is described as compassionate and thoughtful with her patients and easy to work with. These traits flow over to her few personal friendships.
