Character Biography

Appearance:
Tak is a small individual with body and facial features that resemble some sort of mix between otter and cat. She stands four and a half feet tall and possess a long tail with flippers on the end of it. Like all those of their world, they have only four fingers instead of the usual five. Tak has greyish-brown fur, all a solid shade except for a little white on their cheeks, nose, and under their chin. Their fur is thick, with a layer of soft fur hiding under thicker, almost oily fur that is water-proof. Her stance is digitigrade, meaning that they walk on their toes instead of on their heels like humans.

History:
Tak was born in the same way most individuals of her species are born - as part of a pod, a grouping of several individuals who swim the wild seas and live freely amongst themselves. They have four mothers and three fathers. She enjoyed her childhood, and at the age of 10 they left their parental pod to move onto the islands, where the real learning began. She was trained in science, history, mathematics, and all the other important things a child is supposed to learn. Tak excelled in science and was soon placed on a fast-track to the Galdori Space Academy, specializing in biology and biochemistry related fields. She loves studying the behaviour and biology of alien animals, and they do their very best to do so ethically. She also spent a lot of time piloting and was nearly assigned as a Pilot to a Living Ship due to their high skill-level, but decided not to pursue that route.
Soon after their graduation from the Academy, she was saddled with a difficult decision. The pod of one of their siblings had encountered an accident and most of it had died, leaving a 2 yr old child without a family. She was the only available foster for the child, so they were asked to take care of it. Tak took on the responsibility with honour, and two years later when a different circumstance left another child without parents, she took on parenthood for them as well. Kota and Paku are beloved members of their family unit now and she wouldn’t change anything.
After several years aboard a Galdori vessel, Tak was transferred outside of the Galdori fleet and assigned to the Memorial as the first Pipini Starfleet Officer, given a position as Fighter Pilot and Science Officer. Alterations would have to be made to her quarters and their Fighter Vessel to account for their unique anatomy and needs, but they were done in advance of the arrival of Tak and her children.

Medical File and Environmental requirements:
Tak is a semi-aquatic being and requires some environmental adjustments to be made to their quarters. Their adjusted quarters are partitioned into two sections connected via a simple airlock. One section is the former living/work area and includes a replicator, a work console, a dining table that can be converted into a couch, a simple entertainment system, dressers for a few clothing items, and a fold-away toilet. All aspects of their quarters have been adjusted to be water-resistant or just work underwater. There is a small air-lock near the rear wall that leads into a strange environment. Salt water - run through a filter provided by the Galdori government that keeps it aerated and clean - fills the room halfway to the ceiling. The heat is turned up to a toasty Mediterranean temperature, making the room very humid. There is a sloped floor that provides an area free of the water but still in the humid and warm environment. Several piles of synthetic fur provide a sleeping area for Tak and their children.
Tak is able to hold their breath for up to 4 hours. Their nostrils close up when they swim, a subconscious process that activates automatically when they dive underwater, and can even activate when they are unconscious.
Tak’s fighter is altered in order to be piloted by them, with a large groove in the seat for their tail as well as their chair being a little higher up. Just in case of a longer fight, the cabin is held at a higher humidity than most fighter cabins.
