Background:

Melaia was born and raised in the capital city of Rixx on Betazed, in 2356. Her mother Kalara, a Daughter of the Second House of Betazed, is a retired Starfleet Captain, who now teaches Political Science at the University of Betazed. Her father Tolar, is a civil engineer who also is a sessional instructor at the University. Melaia is the second of two children.

The Battle of Betazed was a pivotal time for the Reez family. Kalara was the Captain of the USS Renegade at the time the Dominion took the planet and Melaia was attending the Academy. Her older brother Grev was killed during the initial attack, but the two Reez women would not be able to find this out until near the end of the war when the Dominion was driven off the planet. Kalara retired after the war due to PTSD and severe depression.

Melaia served as a cadet during the war due to the shortage of trained officers. Known for intelligence and sharp wit, she proved herself a capable officer and graduated early. She rose quickly through the ranks, and made the decision to switch to a Command track.

After several years as the CO of the USS Apollo and then the USS Endeavour, Melaia went on an Indefinite Leave of Absence to start a family with her husband, Jonathan, whom had been her CNS and Second-officer and had moved on to an Earth-based assignment. Though she had been at Earth frequently as an Academy ship CO, the distance proved an obstacle she no longer wanted to navigate.

The couple now have twins.

Though Melaia is no longer an active duty officer, Jonathan has continued with his career. He is now the Chief of Psychiatry on the USS Ogawa. Melaia and the kids came with him and she is going back to work as a civilian.

Psychological Profile:

Melaia is outgoing and friendly, usually making friends easily, though the depth of these relationships takes time to build for the most part. Highly intelligent, she absorbs new information quickly and adapts to situations easily. She is close to her family and was greatly affected by her brother’s death. Having fought in the War, Melaia learned the realities of life were far different from her privileged upbringing.

For several years, Melaia and her mother were mostly estranged but have reconciled and have been slowly rebuilding their relationship.
