Character Biography

Appearance: Luka is not as tall as others of her race, but she is just over six feet tall. Her head of the is shaped like that of a wolf, although the snout is rounder and shorter. She has pointed ears on the top of their head that are able to swivel like those of a canine. She has a long tail with thick fur which likes to wag when she is happy or pleased by something. Like a wolf, she is covered in layers of fur - Luka in particular is of a bright coloration, being mostly a pale silver on her back and white on her front, and she has bright amber eyes. Her name, Luka, is short for Lukagu, meaning “one who is small and bright” was given to her in reference to both her very light coloured fur, and her tiny size as a pup. Her arms are shaped about the same as human arms, except that they have only three fingers and a thumb at the end. She has soft pads on their palms and fingertips, and her fingernails are thick and can get sharp if she doesn’t maintain them. Her legs look a bit off at first glance, but this is because (like many Terran animal species) she walks on her toes. Essentially, in comparison to human proportions, her femur is about the same length, but the tibia/fibia are shorter and the tarsals are elongated to the point where the ankle-toe distance is almost equal to the knee-ankle distance.

History: Luka was the third child of three born to loving parents, Hikazi and Hiru. She found herself particularly interested in flight from a young age, and joined the Galdori equivalent of Air Cadets as soon as she was old enough. In middle school, Luka gained a deep understanding of the wonder of space flight, and made it her personal goal to get out there in space. Of course, that wasn’t an easy task. Few individuals were accepted into the Galdori space academy, and even fewer manage to graduate. She applied herself to the task, and after years of hard work, she was accepted into the Starfleet of Galdor, in the operations division. But she wasn’t satisfied with just coasting on her school achievements. Always striving to improve, she worked hard to excel in any station she was put in after her graduation from the Galdori Space Academy.

She spent some years aboard Galdori starships, but her wanderlust wasn’t quite satisfied. She wanted new experiences, to meet new people and to explore the possibilities. So, when the opportunity to join the Starfleet transfer initiative came to her, she was very quick to send in her application. Obviously, she got in. She served for six years on the USS Killian as an operations officer, then was promoted to second officer and chief of operations aboard the USS Greyhound. After a little over three years of service aboard the Greyhound, she was transferred to her new post as executive officer aboard the USS Athena.
