As for her skin, it is a light tan, freckled at the cheeks and arms.
Elms

Personality
Elmira is rather fiery and brave. She is unafraid to stand up for what she believes in, despite her rather diminutive size. She had a kind nature to her, and knows when it is wise to say or not to say something. She is amiable, and can be a bit facetious at times. However, she tends to keep this at bay, as she sticks more with her work personality. The other is saved only for friends. Most of the time, she is blunt and a force to be reckoned with. She definitely found a way to put ‘sass’ in attitude.

Medical History
O’Shea has not yet reached what is known as maturity for most Betazoids. So, she has not yet undergone the “Phase.” Other than this inevitable time, she is rather healthy and has no noted issues. She does, however, possess several different scars resulting in choices made prior to her career in Starfleet. Thus, she suffers from premature arthritis and a series of occasional aches and pains.

Mental History
O’Shea does have the empathic and telepathic abilities of the Betazoid population. She keeps these at bay, and does her best not to poke into other’s space. She doesn’t feel comfortable around Ferengi and Breen beings, as well as reading the minds of animals. It is difficult and impossible, leaving her with a overwhelming sense of haziness.

History
Elmira was not a normal child. Unlike several other officers, she was not born to a man and a woman. Instead, she was the adopted child of a Betazoid woman and her wife, a human. Her mothers cared for her dearly, making it quite easy for her to live with them. The only thing that was bad about having two moms? All of the Moodswings. Other than that, she lived a life of peace.. well, until she reached her teenage years. In that instance, it all changed. Elmira was introduced into the world of the mania. She became a troublemaker, often causing havoc at her school, specifically in her Freshmen and Sophomore year, as she and her mothers did live on the earth during that time. She found that trouble was a way to spice up her mundane life, specifically when her mothers were out on work trips, seeing as Androna was a businesswoman and Lilliu was a Starfleet Officer. However, this trouble seldom got her anywhere, yet she continued.

It came to a point where she had learned her lesson. After an incident, which she very rarely disclosed to anyone, she was never quite the same. She dropped her troublesome ways, in favor of becoming someone far less illmannered and peculiar. That being said, she never lost her will, her sass nor her freedom of speech. Merely did her actions change to depict a peaceful being, much like the remainder of her species. Choosing to enlist in a Starfleet, due to its opportunities and education, she went along the Security route, soon shifting to tactics and battle strategies, in order to complete her schooling as a tactical officer. She did have a relationship with a certain Christopher Johnson during her Academy years, but their separation after graduation was never quite rekindled.

Elmira graduated among the top students, specifically in her tactical training. Perhaps all of those years of causing trouble and havoc for her peers and parents, was enough to teach her a type of common sense that would be needed for such a position as was hers. Albeit, she did find herself getting into trouble quite a few times in her Ensign years. After getting into a physical dispute with one of the other tactical officers, for badmouthing her friend, she was sent back to the Academy. For another year, she remained there, an intention to beat the troublesome ways out of her. When she returned to Starfleet, she was not much different a woman, she had merely enforced the control of her emotions.

Climbing through the ranks, she earned her first promotion to Department Head on the USS Dresden, as the Chief Tactical Officer. There she resided for a few months.. Surprisingly, in peace. However, three months in, Androna contracted an illness, which forced Elmira to resign from the ship, in order to spend those days staying alongside her mother, and helping Liliu to take care of her. After her passing, Elmira was distraught, despite knowing, since the beginning, it was bound to happen. For another two months, she worked on reconciling with this truth and being there for Liliu, as they both went through the grieving process.

After much consideration, she chose to return to Starfleet, finding her purpose was better served out there, than grieving planetside, on Earth.
