  • Personality
    MBTI & Enneagram: ENFP, 6w5 - the Guardian

    Strengths:

  • Perceptive + Affable - keen communication skills, intuitive and charming.
  • Cooperative + Diligent- tends to take on a ‘guardian’ role, works well in team settings.
  • Charismatic - high-spirited and mildly excitable, especially about new projects.
  • Reliable - will break bones, hearts and faulty contracts, but never a promise.
  • Decisive + Contemplative - considers every angle, opinion and possible solution.
  • Integrous + Liberal - honest to a fault, invigorated by debate.
  • Well-humoured - hardly an optimist, but tries to find a way to lighten the mood.
  • Weaknesses:

  • Idealistic - tends to favour ‘what could be’ over ‘what is.’
  • Restless + High Energy - easily swept up by work and opportunity; personally negligent.
  • Difficulty saying ‘no’ - bites off more than she can chew, but always strives to keep her word.
  • Unsually high personal standards - prone to strange bursts of self-doubt and confidence.
  • Willful - open to collaboration, but refuses to compromise her principles and ethics.
  • Intolerant - despises ‘mundane’ tasks, often leaves paperwork and invoices until the last minute.
  • Abstract - in her mind ‘the weirder, the better’, which often clashes with more traditional views.
  • Medical History

    Autosomal Dominant Hearing Loss (Moderate/Hard of Hearing)
    A genetic, nonsyndromic condition that resulted in moderate bilateral hearing loss made itself known when Mirembe was about six years old. Mirembe struggles to hear soft-to-moderate sounds and to interpret verbal communication. Mirembe relies primarily on sign language and her interpreter, IAN; however, it’s important to note she is not entirely deaf.

    General Health
    Otherwise unremarkable by diagnostic standards, Mirembe sports a host of career-related injuries and the occasional flu or ear infection. She isn’t overly concerned with her physique or dietary practices, but her fieldwork makes up for what she doesn’t care to consider. She is allergic to lavender and HA-ase (the enzyme found primarily in bee-and-related stings) but fails to show any other medical markers.

    Although unassociated with her physical health, Miri sports two tattoos of geometric, vaguely scientific design. First, left forearm – the skeleton structure of serotonin accented by a series of lines, dots and small figures. Second, the lower edge of the cervical spine – interconnected shapes designed in a rhombic pattern to depict the star system she was raised in. Each of these is monochrome and minimalistic in nature.

    IAN
    IAN is a dual processing, multilingual interpreter responsible for the translation of Federation Sign Language into verbal expression, and verbal expression into written language or vibrations. Unlike the Universal Translator, IAN is programmed with present languages to quickly and accurately translate spoken Vulcan, Romulan (3/3), tlhIngan Hol, Andorii and several Terran languages. It essential to note that Federation Sign Language is not a direct translation of Federation Standard, therefore IAN relies on facial expressions and body language to fill syntactic and grammatical holes.

    IAN takes form as a grape-fruit sized drone built almost entirely from a titanium alloy. It is paired with a small, plate-like device grafted onto both temporal bones, which allows IAN to transmute words into vibrations that are felt rather than heard. This process establishes tone indicators – different tones have different vibrations – which are otherwise dispresent in written language.

    It has a basic processing sequence that presents as followed…

    — Sender
    IAN scans Mirembe’s signs, crossreferences with its database and produces a literal translation. IAN then fills in syntatic errors and modifies her language accordingly. IAN then crossreferences its transcription with the receiver’s native tongue and produces a verbal translation of the original signed language.

    — Receiver
    IAN scans spoken, written or signed language to produce a literal translation. It crossreferences language with its database and adjusts or translates it accordingly. (This is typically done in Federation Standard.) Using an appendage similar to a holoemitter, IAN provides a holographic transcription for Mirembe to read. IAN’s transcriptions are not exclusive and can be observed by anyone within eyeshot. If opposite to her, these translations will appear backwards. IAN, however, often hovers behind the receiver to avoid distraction during conversation. This machine is a glorified closed-captioning system.

    IAN’s voice is decidedly masculine with a slight Somerset accent (or so it’s been categorised). It also developed its own – rather cheeky – personality.
