Character Biography

Background

Rachel grew up on the Grey Family farm south of Inverness Scotland with her twin Brother Charles and a younger brother Richard. From an early age, it was clear that the twins were prodigies with a focus in different directions. At the age of 16 both of them went to Oxford on a scholarship, Rachel to study General Surgery, Xenobiology, a special six-year program to serve on a Starship. She graduated in four and at the age of 20 took part in a cross-training program with the Military Assault Command Operations for two years. She was trained as a combat Medic and spent her first time away from Earth training on Mars most of that time although she did also train at Jupiter Station and Luna as was common with MACO Teams.

At 22 years old she was accepted in an extremely prestigious Interstellar Student exchange programme where she transferred to the Andorian Imperial Military Medical Institution, which she affectionately refers to as ‘Amy’. She studied there for four years and was granted membership in the Andorian Imperial Guard, although the title was little more than honorary. When she turned 26 she transferred back to Earth and enlisted in Starfleet where she spent eight months in Starfleet Academy learning Starfleet procedures and the like before graduating and receiving the rank of Lieutenant.

Rachel is an odd duck. Most of the time it seems as if she’s not all there and seems to have a constant blank stare and friendly smile. However, at a towering 195 Centimeters with a broad athletic build, Rachel is an intimidating person to face. Besides being a health nut her stint at the ‘Amy’ she also became somewhat of a fitness fanatic. The strict exercise regiment of the Andorians stuck with her making her even more formidable. It wasn’t until she studied at ‘Amy’ that she was taught combat which she excelled at. Unfortunately, a little too much.

During her graduation from ‘Amy’, she assaulted a high-ranking member of the Andorian high command, dislocating his shoulder, breaking his nose and fracturing three ribs. For some reason, during the disciplinary hearing, she was acquitted of assault charges and the incident was removed from her permanent record. During questioning on Earth regarding the incident she simply referred to the General as ‘The Handsy Blues’.

She received a commendation for bravery and actions beyond the call of duty during her third year on Andoria. During a weekend break, several Xenophobic Andorian fanatics set explosives in a mine that was being visited by a group of schoolchildren in the town that she was stationed in. These were children of members of the Andorian Diplomatic corps. Rachels’ team was the first responders and initiated rescue operations. When an opening presented itself Rachel entered the mines and personally carried out six children and two adults before Rescue teams arrived. Her entire squad was presented with the Blue Ribbon of Bravery for their actions. Rachel is currently the only human to have received it. It is a small blue band that she affectionately ties to her belt.

During her time on Andoria, she developed a slight mistrust of Tellarites due to the influence of her compatriots. It was also influenced by her mistrust of people who don’t smile which is also what leads to her mistrust of Vulcans. Besides the fact that they wouldn’t admit her to the Vulcan Medical Academy for being human. Despite being better than any Vulcan Doctor, in her opinion.

Brilliant and eccentric, Rachel seemed like a perfect fit for Starfleet. During her stay at Oxford, she was approached by an Admiral Mandal of Starfleet Medical who gave Guest Lectures there during summers. He took her under his wing, making her his protege. He got her accepted into both the MACO training program and the student transfer programme. He saw in her the future of Starfleet Medicine. Rachel considers him to be a father figure, someone she trusts without fail.

She had been vegetarian bordering on veganism for her last year at Oxford and her entire stint on Andoria. This was due to a bet she made with a fellow at Oxford that believed that one couldn’t survive with Andorians without meat and animal products. She, in the heat of the moment, wagered that she could and so she did. She considers it the most difficult task of her life as being raised on a Scottish farm she had a true fondness for anything meat-related. However, after returning to Earth she was quick to pick up her meat-eating habits. She has a terrifyingly big appetite that she offsets with an exercise regiment that gives her her incredible fit status.

She has an irrational fear of Eggs and flightless birds. On Andoria she received the Nickname ‘Salmon’ due to her pink complexion and often blank stare. Well, she had the Andorian version of the nickname but she never repeats it due to it sounding like a fairly impolite word in her native tongue. She got her Andorian friends to call her Salmon, or Sal, instead of the ‘other’ word.

She is fairly certain that she is a functioning Alcoholic but doesn’t want to do anything about it. She realized this at the age of 23. By that time she’d had an alcoholic drink every day for almost ten years. However, she was forced to stop drinking to be allowed to join Starfleet. Admiral Mandal, her Mentor, made her go to AA meetings for the year she spent on Earth before graduating.
