Rende is of average height with well tanned skin from spending time under many different suns. She has dark brown hair, either cut in a military style or severely pulled back in a bun to keep it out of the way. She is extremely fit and toned.


No nonsense and self assured and learning how to be humble. Having learned her arrogance was only a detriment to others rather than a benefit. She has learned to become a ‘listener’ such as her people are described, but she is a fierce protector as well.

Personal Information

Rende was born on the South Continent of El-Auria and lived at home with her parents, but home was not the picture perfect that one would imagine of such a long lived race. Her parents along with other adults tutored her and other children in the area. She grew up in the rough and tumble of the streets in the midst of the racial and geopolitical mess caused by the Southern Continental Coalition or the SCC. Rende formed a negative view of the more rich and powerful northerners, one with mistrust and disdain. She was also seen fighting, defending the underdogs and the weaker. Once she reached maturity she learned to pick her battles, but that reduced her temper very little. She soon thereafter met her husband, Eldorin.

El-Aurians described themselves as a race of “listeners”, by which they meant that they could “hear” the world like music. To them, every action and word vibrated with a specific resonance, and they could further manipulate reality by finding and plucking the “right chord”. The El-Aurians believed that they were united by food and drink. Using their abilities, they could capture the half-life of a moment in time within physical objects. (PIC: “Monsters“)

Before Academy
Rende learned from private tutors and apprenticeships like all of her people. She enjoys history and analyzing the great events over time.

During Academy
Upon returning to Earth she entered the service of Earth and joined the MACOs. After leaving the MACOs Rende joined Star Fleet Academy officially, majoring in security and tactical from her background and diplomacy. She also entered the command track in her second year. Years later Rende reentered the Academy again to earn her degree in archeology and cultural studies from the science department


Reading of history and autobiographies of important people. She also enjoys playing a Hurdy Gurdy.


Rende has evidence of many injuries, all combat related and medical scans would also show that she has, at some point, had a child.

Aging: El-Aurians only age when they want to.

Empathy/Telepathy: Empathy is the ability to feel others emotions. El-Aurians experience a limited form of telepathy, that with difficulty, they can project an image of themselves into the mind of another person.

Af-Kelt (Time sickness): It occurred when the timeline had been disturbed in some way, and the El-Aurian subsequently encountered echoes of their own future. Symptoms ranging from general feelings of unease to severe nausea and vomiting.

Service History:

Rende and her husband, Eldorin, were mercenaries. Having spent many years traveling and living among other cultures, primitive ones by El-Aurian standards, it was often the case that they just were not in a position to overcome those that were unjust. They decided to provide their services. Being of the long lived race they felt they had experienced more and a wider range of events. Rende and her husband were arrogant and felt they were able to decide which side should prevail. So they took it upon themselves to help. It was not malicious, they helped with medicine, fighting, agriculture, all aspects of society, but it was still arrogance. In the late 1960’s by Earth’s calculations, Rende and her husband’s arrogance finally caught up with them. They sided with the losers. They fled the planet, returning home, but were persecuted for their interference and deemed pariahs of their culture and banished. They left El-Auria and settled on a planet called Earth, in Ireland becoming staunch supporters during ‘The Troubles’ in the 1970s. Rende became a history teacher, trying to teach a new generation to learn from previous mistakes. Two years later their son, Tabris was born, and they stayed on Earth, hidden, in exile until after WWIII. They lost track of their son during the war and assumed he had died in an attack. Eventually in 2149 they returned to Earth, having found a home there and wanting to resettle. This time Rende and her husband joined Star Fleet and put their skills to the purpose of exploration and following orders rather than giving them.
