Amber was a typical girl. Raised by parents who loved her in the shadow of the Academy. She always knew, since the day she could comprehend it, that she would be part of Star Fleet. Her father, by the time she made the Academy, was a retired Chief Engineer with more space than dirt time. And her mother was the perfect supporter who raised Amber to respect the uniform and always be faithful to the Fleet.

Once she graduated Secondary School she applied and got into the coveted school. She applied herself with the intention of becoming an Ambassader and heading into space to help broker first contact aliances and bringing the wide range of the universe to the same table to laugh and drink together.

Her second year, she had an accident during emergency drills. She was horribly burned when a controlled plasma burst set off a leak. It killed two classmates and left her severely scarred on her face and right side. She spent months with dermo regen and therapy and a year later, went back to finish her studies. Because of her burns, she lost the desire to be the ‘face of the Federation’ and instead sought the counselor’s guidance on how to steer to something else. It was recommended she apply to Officer school to become a Comm Officer and serve on deep space vessels if given the opportunity. She took the advice and plied herself with the zeal of her previous goal.

The scars are barely visible when her hair is down. When it’s up, there is a large patch of still scarred skin across the back of her neck and down to the middle of her shoulder blades. The nearness to her skull, the type of burn and the time it took to get to her left that small, almost two hand spans, worth of skin unable to be saved and restored completely. Her hair, dark and long, kept it covered and in uniform she coiled her braids low to cover most of her neck. She focused on her studies and with the love and support to the staff, her family and her friends, she graduated with the invitation to be on several ships.

She chose the Sentinal because of opportunity to put her out there where first contact may still be a possibility. So she headed for space as a fresh Ensign with a desire to shake hands with the unknown.

She hasn’t memorized many languages in full. At least not to speak them. But she can distinguish between known and unknown alien languages already in the main database. 40% of the time she can name the actual species, 75% of the time she knows it’s a known language. 10% of the time she can make out common words or simple phrases. She prefers not to study one language because she said it taints her mind to other languages, making her mind sometimes twist the accents or inflections to fit what she knows. So she prefers to study the nuances that make each one different and identifiable. She wants to break the record of how many species she can meet personally before she dies of old age.
