Gender : Endofemale
Species : Jelna
Rank : Lt. JG
Assignment : USS Constellation

Personality
Khavo is an odd woman. She can be both incredibly wise and altruistic, willing to lend an ear to anyone who needs someone to listen. Or she can be quirky and frivolous, spinning tales out of this world, in order to amuse others. Being a truly odd soul, Khavo enjoys chatting with others and learning more about them. She certainly is the person to come to for advice, and a good laugh!

Appearance
The Jelna species takes on a humanoid appearance, but that is where the similarities to humans stop. Khavo is lean, almost boney in her thin stature, her skin a pale, creamy silver. Upon her face, there are two ridges just above her eyes (which are an eye catching ruby), running down to the middle of her nose, then connecting to her cheek ridges. Running down her face are thin black stripes, accompanied by lateral yellow stripes, which meet at the base of her nose, whom possesses four nostrils instead of two. Her hair receded back, is long and white, generally braided to suit the needs of Starfleet.

Mental History
Calm and collected, this subject is incredibly conscientious of her surroundings. She is organized to the point of OCD, becoming particular about where certain things happen to be. However, beyond being OCD, she only suffers from a heart too sizes too big, which gets her into a fair amount of trouble.

Medical History
With a medical physiology internally similar to Vulcans or Romulans, she possesses many of the same anatomical traits. With that being said, she did suffer from a rare genetic disorder, which left her blind and nearly deaf. Thus, she has visual implants and auditorial prosthetics implanted into her ears, in order to assist in her hearing.

Personal History
It is unclear how long ago Khavo was born, but one thing is for certain: she doesn’t act her age. Born to the Jelna people, Khavo did not grow up with a great affiliation to battle or war. In fact, her people were known for being industrious and high intellectual creatures, their efforts greater put into commerce and trade over hostilities towards different species. Born to a Jelna Merchant and his wife, Khavo was subject to the dynamics of business, ever since she was a child. For many years, her parents groomed her in the art of trade, although she withheld the information, she was never truly interested in business.

When she was five years old, Khavo was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder which impacted the auditorial and visual centers of her brain. By the time she was eight, despite the advancement of Rigelian medicine, Khavo was nearly completely blind and deaf. With nowhere else to turn, after three years of searching for a cure, her parents decided it was time to go for the first option they were given: auditory and visual replacement. Too young to completely understand what was going on, Khavo allowed for the procedure. In surgery, both her eyes and eardrums had been replaced with prosthetics. As a result, Khavo has sensitive hearing and eye-catching unnaturally ruby eyes.

Throughout her youth, despite knowing she was different from the other Jelna in her family, Khavo held herself close to the religious and cultural practices of her people. She braided her hair with the traditional beads, slinging elaborated necklaces of gemstone beads around her neck. She practiced the rituals of her people, spending two years of her adolescent life estranged from society in order to learn the old ways of the Jelna. When she came of age, Khavo was a cultured woman, and yet still no more than an apprentice of her people.

The years leading up to her decision of joining Starfleet were difficult. At first, Khavo attempted to follow the footsteps of her parents, entering school on Rigel to get a degree in business. For four years, she struggled with the fact that she was no equipped for business. Yes, she could do the work and she knew the industry, but it did not feel right to her. Following her graduation, Khavo spent another two years trying to convince herself that she could survive in the industry her father was teaching her to take over. However, six years into trying to live a life not cut out for her, Khavo finally caved in, throwing her hands up in defeat.

Afraid her parents would reject her, Khavo decided to leave for Earth without their knowing. Catching a shuttle, a bag stuffed of her PaDDs and vital belongings, she left Rigel and headed to the blue planet. Upon her arrival, she struggled for months to figure out a living situation, to get a job and discover what she planned to do. Luckily, Khavo had always been a quick study, and choppy English she was forced to learn in her adolescent years slowly became understandable. For many years she worked her way up from the bottom, attending Cal Tech while she switched from jobs at waitressing to transportation to anything you could imagine. Despite the common nature of visiting Rigelians to Earth, she didn’t fit in and faced social rigour.

Graduating from Cal Tech, Khavo discovered it wasn’t enough. She wanted to be able to explore and enjoy herself in the process. With a mind for picking things apart, she enlisted into Starfleet, attending to become an Operations Officer. After she was instated as an Ensign on the USS Dierdre, Khavo finally decided to contact her parents, years after she had abandoned them on Rigel. To her surprise, her parents did not completely begrudge their daughter for her decision. However, they were angry and it would take a long time for Khavo to earn their trust back.

Khavo has lived quite the life, experiencing various different levels of social class. She is a woman of great devotion to her culture, but she is not blinded by it. With her unique experiences, comes an idiosyncratic woman– one who hates to admit her age to anyone around her. Needless to say, Khavo has seen her fair share of the universe, and she doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.
