Character Biography

.
Appearance:
Just under three feet in height, Kaia is unusually tall for her species, and especially tall for a female. Being the height she is, is akin to a human female being something like 6 and a half feet tall.
She is built like all of her species, and appears to be a bipedal cat. Just think Puss in Boots from Shrek, and you’ve got exactly the picture.
Coloring and fur texture for Raka is rather varied, and Kaia herself is tan with lilac-point and short fur.
She is extremely agile, able to leap from the ground at least 5 feet into the air, and thus has no issue reaching consoles and such (she just perches on the edge with her incredible balance)
History:
Kaia grew up with a pretty calm childhood, enjoying life and tinkering with her Papa’s tools when she had the chance to. When she was 8, she applied to the school of Engineers, and got in. When she was 10, she applied to StarFleet academy, and got in. Given her species’ short lifespan (just over half that of a human) she was put through an accelerated course of study, graduating in just over two and a half years.
Family:
Kaia is the oldest of five siblings.
Her mother’s name is Alira, her father is Minx.
She has two brothers (Jiru and Toki) and two sisters (Asu and Hati).

Species Information:
The Raka are one of five sentient species on their home planet.
Laleri- Lupine, wolf-like creatures. Human-level intelligence.
Raka- Small feline creatures, similar in size and anatomy to Rocket Racoon. Human-level intelligence, not great at language.
Hatriku- highly adaptable reptilian creatures, humanoid. Human-level intelligence.
Arwan- Bipedal deer/goat-like creatures, two to three feet in stature.
Pipini- aquatic creatures vaguely similar to dolphins. Low-level sentience.
These races grew up on a single planet together, and co-operate impressively. When the races gained space flight, it was the Hatriku in positions of command, Laleri in security, Arwan as science and medical officers, and the Raka as engineers. Those of the Pipini tend to prefer not to leave their oceans. They developed Warp roughly around the mid to late 1900s (earth time), and had warp about 1 warp factor higher than earth by the time they were encountered by a human vessel around 2250. The planet of Galdor is in an appropriate sector for them to have been discovered in the stated time period. After much deliberation and consideration, and after sending a group of officers to be a part of Starfleet on diplomatic loan, they finally joined the Federation around 2290.
