Personality:
Iphigenia Umbrah Henao II is enthusiastic, persuasive, and much more focused on the big picture than details or processes which means she is willing to bend the rules a little to make sure the ultimate goal is met. She worked hard, getting a few minor reprimands along the way, putting in a number of years and training in Starfleet which eventually earned her spot in the Captain’s chair. As one who favors teamwork, she is apt to take advice and guidance from her crew and carefully weigh options to determine the best outcome.

History:
Iphigenia grew up in Texas and was raised by her father, Cosimo Henao I, a weapons mogul who founded CH Armories & Tactical Defense LLC. The company currently sells advanced technical and bio weapons to governmental agencies all across planet Earth. They have a strict policy to not market or sell to any non-Earth alliance governments. It was Cosimo’s top-secret work within Starfleet that exposed Iphigenia to major and important people within the organization, sparking her initial interest in their operations. Iphigenia (affectionately referred to as Iphi) immediately enrolled in the Academy at the age of 20 after successfully completing her studies in bio-engineering at the Daystrom Institute in just three years by doubling up on classes and studying around the clock. It was a requirement of her father that she attend a real university before she enrolled, so she expedited it as much as she could. After her graduation from the Academy, Iphi started out as an Ensign Weapons Specialist on the USS Prometheus II. She then worked her way up to a Lieutenant Gunnery Sergeant, and a Lieutenant Weapons Consultant where she also trained and then worked as a pilot on the USS Nosotromo. She occasionally served on the security team as well. After she left the Nosotromo, she worked on OED V as Lieutenant Commander Chief of Security for the Starfleet base there, then left that posting after three years to work on the USS Duraz as the Commander Chief Tactical Officer.

Iphigenia is a twin. Her brother Cosimo, who attempted and had a brief stretch in Starfleet, dropped out after a year. He is now CEO and head of CH Armories & Tactical Defenses. Her father is retired but works as an occasional consultant to advise his son. When Iphigenia decided to join Starfleet, she transferred all her shares in the company to her brother, who promised to transfer them back if she ever needed them.
Despite their vast differences and virtually not having any of the twin connections people often talk about twins having, Iphigenia and her brother are close. They never knew their mother because they were born via a surrogate after she passed away. It was a decision their father made to honor his late beloved wife, Iphigenia, who died from a severe case of Andorian measles after a brief stay on Andoria. Thanks to careful planning, Iphigenia I was able to become a mother after her death thanks to a stash of stored eggs Cosimo I and her had frozen and intended to use when the time was right. After their mother’s death, their father never remarried then after a period of significant mourning, he decided to create the family he and his beloved wife always wanted. Iphigenia and her brother had a privileged upbringing but never got the opportunity to travel very much beyond Earth. It was one of the reasons Iphigenia wanted to go to the Academy. She’d heard about the many explorations from starship crews and longed for that same type of adventure and new experiences outside of her protective bubble…and if you ask her it was the best decision she ever made.
