Character Biography

CLAIM PIC (for reference):
Romulan for reference, picture copyright the originator

PHYSICAL:

5‘10, about 195 lbs. This half Romulan, while looking very much like her paternal line, has just enough exotic about her that makes her human side edge around her features. She has hair that’s cropped short at the collar of her uniform and just off her shoulders. It’s deep eyes of blue that set her apart from her full Romulan. Toveka is Full Romulan on her father’s side. But her mother is half human. Her maternal grandmother, killed when Romulus was destroyed, was a human from Earth who gave rich colored eyes and a lighter skin to the gene pool she was born into.

Muscle wise, she is toned like a fighter without being bulked up. She had grown up considering a security role on her home world. But after attending the Academy orientation, she switched to Science. But she likes her strengthened and toned body and has maintained it despite the lack of need that long running abilities and weight lifting have on her current pursuits.

PERSONALITY:

Toveka has a wonderful sense of humor. While not being the life of the party, she isn’t a wall flower. She can go into nearly any situation and make friends without coming off as fake or false. She loves meeting new people and once off her homeworld, she embraced the opportunity to do that while at the Academy and since. She has a particular interest in the desserts of various and assorted species and worlds.

She likes to be the one to suggest a get together, but often makes it seem like it’s someone else’s idea and then just makes it sound good.

INTERESTS:

Her two main interests are dessert recipe collections and working on solving the mystery of what happened to her home world. She attacks both passion with the viciousness of a Klingon on a hunt.

Desserts have come to mean comfort and deep heritage within each species and person she meets. Many people share main dishes when they want to share their delights and favorites. But Toveka discovered that passion and love are found in what people relax with afterwards, dessert.

Her other love and pursuit is what happened to Romulus. While she once went after it with a vengeance as a way to bring peace and understanding to something she had to endure through, she now wants to find out so hopefully it can keep a similar thing from happening elsewhere. Whether the occurance was due to an outside force, or from internal issues, she is determined to help other scientists and geologists discover the cause.

COMPETENTCY:

Her strong suit is her passion and grasp of science on a planetary and stellar level. The way that planets, moons and stars interact with one another is something she seems to understand on a level many around her think is peculiar. Looking at a pair of stars and knowing how their slow decay, or growth, is affecting things like gravity, energy, and even motion of other bodies in their vicinity is something she seems to be able to ferret out like the missing words in a puzzle.

FLAWS:

Toveka has a scar on her upper arm from where a hypospray malfunctioned on her as a child. She has feared them every sense and the ones she endured in the Academy were prefaced with muscle relaxers and deflection by one nurse as another gave her the spray. She would rather have archaic needles in her arm than the technology that left a two inch scar on her upper right arm.

BACKGROUND:

Mother was half human, half Romulan. She was a perfect wife to her father who was pure Romulan and part of the local ruling body. Her mother was the perfect hostess. Capable of charming funding from the tightest fist, and bring two arguing men to the table sipping Romulan Ale and regaling tales of their accomplishments while sealing a deal. Many said her father merely sat the seat, but it was her mother who served from it. Her father’s mind was brilliant and had brought their small township up to a thriving level that put them on the map. Originally Toveka was going to grow up and work for the city guard. But while at the Academy, the speaker on sciences peaked her interest.

Three years into the Academy, Romulus was lost. She lost every member of her family in the loss and the blow left her unable to concentrate. She was granted a leave of absence and took a year to help with relief efforts in the local area. After a year of seeing and dealing with the devastation, and the realization none of her family or city were left, she went back to the Academy with a renewed fire to discover just what happened. It took two extra years to graduate (five years all together, six from enrollment to graduation). She graduated in the top ten of her class because she often let her temper get in the way which caused anymosity when placed in a team environment. She got better to the end, but even now, one of her weaknesses is not trying to take over every group she is part of when rank is within equal portions amongst the group. She has no problem deferring to obvious superiors, though. It’s automatic to defer to rank and office. It’s around equals she often finds herself unable to defer and take a second seat when placed there.

MEDICAL:

No psychological problems other than nightmares of the loss of her family (she is on a cliff, or in a shuttle, just out of sight of her parents when the planet explodes in front of her. No matter how she yells, she can’t get their attention, and no transporter pad works fast enough to save them)

She has a scar approximately two inches long on her right bicep where a hypospray malfunctioned and left a burn mark. Because of the nature of the shot, the scar has remained.
