Character Biography

DOB: April 14, 2359
Mother: Belladonna Gravago-Turcio
Father: Nico Turcio
Sister: Bianca Turcio-21
Maritza was born in Parma, Italy in 2359. She is the oldest of two children. Maritza and Bianca attended the local schools and did fairly well. Maritza being the older, felt it necessary to be protective of her younger sister and often times, came home with a torn uniform and various injuries. Maritza was not one to back down from a fight, no matter the size of the opponent. She earned the nickname “Toro” as a result of this.
Her childhood was relatively ordinary. Her parents ran a farm just outside of town and to supplement their income, Nico worked at a local factory making cheese and hams. While not wealthy by any means, the family did well for themselves. Nico and Bella raised Maritza and Bianca to enjoy life for what it was and to challenge themselves to achieve.
Maritza learned how to cook at a young age. It was the focal point of the Turcio house, dinner time. The entire family helped cook and they ate as a family. Bella operated a small restaurant in town that was well liked by the locals. During summer vacations and holidays, Maritza and Bianca could be found there helping out. This is Mari’s softer side, the side that knows how to make people happy through their stomachs.
Maritza earned the nickname “Toro” in school. Stubborn and with a firey temper, she would fight anyone that came along. Her biggest pet peeve was bullies. Her younger sister was soft spoken and painfully shy and seemed to be a magnet for the school yard bullies. It seemed Maritza had a sixth sense about your sister and knew when she was in trouble and would show up, eyes snapping and ready for a fight. Maritza never backed down, even when her opponent was much larger than she. Her friends started calling her “Toro” after she stubbornly refused to back down from a college student that was harassing Maritza and her friends while they were out one weekend.
Graduating High School in 2371, Maritza left Parma and attended Star Fleet Academy, studying flight and helm. Her primary focus was on flight school and fighter tactics. As she had been in her childhood, Maritza continued to tackle things that were beyond her and even when faced with defeat, she would come back and try again until she succeeded.
She keeps herself physically and mentally fit with a daily workout routine that includes yoga and martial arts. Maritza enjoys playing games that challenge her mind and will spend hours in a flight simulator creating increasingly difficult programs that she has to work through to complete.
Flying is Maritza’s second passion. As a pilot, she has a healthy respect of the balance between the man and the machine. She does not take her job lightly and once in the cockpit, she becomes focused and stern. Anyone listening to her as she goes through her pre flight checks will find that she is speaking Italian.
Maritza has been flying patrols around Star Fleet HQ for about two years and has finally been assigned to the USS Brian Olinski as a pilot. She is looking forward to her new duties as she embarks on another part of the great adventure of life.
