Lieutenant Commander Rosaleen O'Donnell
Name Rosaleen Etain O'Donnell
Position Chief of Staff
Rank Lieutenant Commander
|Permission Level||Command Team|
|Physical Description||Long and wavy red hair, blue eyes, petite, and very curvy...Rosaleen looks like a young and innocent woman. But don't let that fool you. She spent part of her career as a Marine, flying Razors during the Dominion War. She is no pushover. She also looks nowhere near her age, as she can pass for being in her early 20's. Additionally, from a visual perspective she indistinguishable from humans. It is only under medical examination that the physiological differences emerge between the two races.|
|Father||Senior Councilman Deklan O'Donnell, Chair; Federation Council Appropriations Committee|
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Rosaleen is a very powerful being. As such I am VERY careful in how I play her, do not allow for her to become SHS-ish, and try to always find weaknesses. I've always found it a bit absurd that with all of the more powerful and gifted races in the Trek universe that exist that fleets do not allow for them to be played. But at the same time...I completely understand why. This race was created in Obsidian Fleet by me 2 years ago, and passed their stringent tests for approval, although they don't really allow for it to be played in general by folks for obvious reasons. Now for the good stuff. Some of her traits.
General: The most identifiable trait of the Ka'Bu is they all have red hair, blue eyes, and very pale skin (almost porcelain-like and flawless) Ka'Bu live a very long life...many centuries in fact, but they do age gradually. They are very loving, and extremely sensual in nature. Fun and flirty. Playful in nature. Extremely Intelligent. Their moods are accompanied by temperature changes as well. Additionally their eyes change appearance (color clarity and vibrancy) with mood and energy manipulation (gifts). Additionally, they are very gifted in the arts of music and dance. Ka'Bu will usually find any excuse to be unclothed as well, as they prefer to be as close to nature as possible, and clothing restricts energy flow. So as you can guess, modesty is not really a concern for them. They will flirt...they will make casual passes and come on to people...and they will follow through if the object of their attention reciprocates. And gender does not play into this at all.
Gifts: Ka'Bu can freeze and manipulate time like the Ba'Ku, but with more precision. They can also phase to different time flows briefly. The Ka'Bu have psi ability, but no telekinesis. They can link with another person to look at memories, and the effect is like actually being there as the person they are linked with. The trade-off of this is the person linked with them has the same experience with their Ka'Bu's hosts memory for the same time period. No secrets. Their senses are somewhat hyper-aware (sight, hearing, and smell), and their skin is very sensitive. The most commonly seen gift is the ability to control their temperature and allow it to affect those around them. It is actually a part of the Ka'Bu's ability to manipulate their surroundings and natural elements as a whole. They are one with nature. To this end they are very sensitive to the natural energy field that comes from every living thing that exists, and are able to collect that energy and channel it. The can even lightly 'charge' their skin surfaces with this energy, but it is nowhere near a level of intensity for offensive or defensive use.
They cannot walk on water (nor breathe under it), fly through the air, take out a squad of soldiers single-handedly, bend people to their will...no Q style stuff. A Ka'Bu can make a breeze, but not a storm; make it rain or snow, but pretty much just covering a few meters surrounding them. All bodily functions are completely normal comparable to humans...they have to eat, go to the bathroom, etc. Organs are pretty much in the same place, size, etc as humans. And the Ka'bu are definitely vulnerable to injury. They do have a protective ability if injured to slow themselves down...kinda like self induced stasis. This is only a temporary fix, and if they do not receive proper medical attention they will die from injuries. The Ka'Bu's body does heal itself over time, but this is more of the effect of making scars disappear, etc. After a time, scans will not reveal any prior injuries...just a completely healthy person.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||The good: Her natural gifts. Very strong engineering skills, specializing in propulsion, weapons and defensive systems. Excellent tactical decision making skills.
The bad: As weird as it sounds, overly flirtatious and playful. The Ka'Bu are very playful creatures by habit, and it can be annoying at times, as well as a bit uncomfortable to some, especially those not used to it. Also, her ability to control her temperature is also automatically affected by her mood, which can be a serious issue at times. That is a matter of learning control, but she is young and does not have the luxury of having elders around to assist with her education and training.
|Ambitions||Rosaleen's goals have changed since her change. She wants to find out as much about her people as she can.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Flying, tactical war gaming, fencing, rock climbing, martial arts, music performance (piano and voice), and dance.|
|Personal History||Born in New Galway, Ireland in 2340, Rosaleen grew up the child of an Architect and now career Politician (Father) and a Physician (Mother). She stood above her classmates, and her family just knew that she would be a shining star. She proved them to be right, earning dual degrees in both her undergrad and graduate work...finishing at the top of her class in each. She initially entered public service in Starfleet, working as a shipyards engineer. ***** she resigned her Fleet commission and joined the Starfleet Marines, using her education and political connection from her father to be assigned to a fighter squadron. She spent her entire career in the 16th Tactical Interceptors, including the entire Dominion War.
After the conclusion of the war, she started to re-evaluate her career goals. Within a year, she reigned from the Marines and re-joined the Fleet, retaking OCS school and starting over once again. However, she rapidly fast-tracked through the ranks as she proved her worth. It is notable that she did not use her father's influence (he had moved into a position on the Federation Council at this point) to aid with her career. She wanted a lot out of life, but she wanted to earn it on her own merits.
During her time on the USS Merlin, they were the target of a bio-tech nanite attack by the K'zinti Consortium. The nanites were unusual in nature, as their power source gave off a very unique metaphasic radiation emission. While this had no long-term effect on most of the crew once they were healed of the infestation, she and another member of the crew (the Commanding Officer which the ship served) were from the same colony on Earth...and both were in fact not fully human, although neither of them knew this up until then. Both of their mothers were members of the Ka'bu race. The DNA had been buried within them, however the metaphasic radiation exposure not only awoke it...it caused the Ka'bu DNA to become dominant, transforming them into the same beings as their mothers.
*** 2387: Nanite infestation occurrence which awakened the Ka'bu DNA within Rosaleen. The Ka'bu DNA ultimately became dominant, transforming Rosaleen into a full-blood Ka'bu. Her mother is a full-blood Ka'bu that settled on Earth as a small group that tired of traveling.***
