Appearance
Ember is a young woman with a small stature, a petite nature to her. However, her skin is a dark tan that goes with her dark black hair, which is a naturally curly. Her eyes are a dark, chocolate brown, seeming to resemble the dirt of the place where her people are from. She has somewhat prominent facial features, which is simply nature of being Yakaman. Nothing special. She has a single tattoo, eagle wings across her shoulderblades. This is hidden by uniform.
Ember

Personality
Ember is not your typical security officer. Certainly, she can be brash at times with her own sense of sarcasm and sass. As well as being impulsive and persistent, when it comes to situations that she cares deeply about. That being said, she appears somewhat reserved at first glance. Specifically, when she is on the job. At initial sight, she might seem stiff and unapproachable. Though, this is merely a form of protection. For she doesn’t take pride in being an open book. Inside, she is a proud Yakama woman with a very slight chip on her shoulder for being so small. Although, she has grown over the years and has become more sure of herself, sporting a quirky nature and a naturally crooked smile.

Medical History
Ember has never truly had an issue with her health. She has been a rather fit and well balanced woman, for the majority of her life. Her only issues were breaking bones in her youth, when she was being a kid. Yes, that means being an imbecile. Shh.

Mental History
Ember does have a dyslexia, which makes it difficult for her to read things correctly. On particularly bad days, she flips around words making it nearly impossible to work properly or read decently. Otherwise, Ember is mentally healthy.

Personal History
Ember doesn’t have a sob story for a past, nor is it anything breathtakingly exciting. She was born to two scientists, who valued their work over their personal lives. This led them away from their daughter, leaving her to Sierra’s parents, who were more than willing to care for the growing girl. Despite the absence of her parents, she did not appear unhappy with her life. Kusinut, as is her first name, was raised on the outskirts it an Oregon city. She spent majority of her time out in the wilderness, fantasizing about what it may have been like for the ancient peoples.

She did not live a depressing life, and had support for both of her grandparents. She very rarely saw her parents, and knew them mostly by their pictures and their names. As well as the stories she had been told. Yet this didn’t bother her, for she spent a lot of time on her farm, enjoying the Oregonian landscape for what it was and what it could offer to her. Within its beauty and grace.

She was very much into her culture and simple history as was. Although growing up dyslexic posed great difficulty, and being easily distracted, it wasn’t until the eight grade when she truy pulled together and showed that she could do the work. Graduating with competent grades, she moved on to become a security officer for the Starfleet. She had always been a fan of protecting people, despite the fact she never thought she would be brave enough to stand up for any larger cause than being on the Prom Committee or Yearbook staff, as a high school student.

Graduating from the Academy, having done well during those years from eighteen to twenty-two, she was given her first assignment. She screwed up a lot as an Ensign, making several mistakes which she would ultimately learn from. She had a lot of instances where her commanders were displeased by how she handled things. She, however, grew from this and became better than the sum of her parts. Although she still makes mistakes, that reckless part of her is gone.

After several years in the fleet, she decided to return to school to get a degree in law and justice. For the following three years, fast tracking the first three after having studied forensics and criminal justice at SFA, she graduated. Thus, now she continues her work as a Social Worker, both for Starfleet and outside of Starfleet.
