Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Do not let her childlike curiosity fool you. Arianna D'Tal may look sweet and innocent, but she tends to be a shy, closed off person. She lives in fear of people, not because she is afraid for her own safety, but because she is afraid for theirs.
Under normal circumstances, she is a sweet, respectful young lady who is well behaved. However, if she gets upset, she has a tendency to back away in the hopes that no one gets hurt by her hot temper. If she feels threatened while she is upset, she may very quickly become violent to protect herself. If her temper is provoked too far, the results can be... unpredictable, and she will remember every detail with perfect clarity later.
As Captain Cleh's yeoman, and pilot in the flight department, Arianna is well mannered, and compassionate. She goes out of her way to look out for others, and to help where she can.
As an Academy Cadet, Arianna is a bright, dedicated student, following through on every project she begins.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths:
Skilled in hand to hand and weapons combat, excells in research and school studies.
Can follow oral, or written instructions to the letter
Seems decent in the emergency medical field, unless it requires complicated medical procedures (such as brain surgery)
Has a very explosive temper when provoked, or threatened that is signified by a change in eyes color from blue to gray, or black.
Loses control if her temper sets in.
Afraid of people in general due to her temper.
Very naive and inexperienced when it comes to matters of love.
|Ambitions||Arianna hopes to one day follow in her father's foot steps in Starfleet, preferably in the Intelligence field, and is joining Starfleet Academy to become a Commissioned Officer.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Martial Arts
Star-Gazing in the Forward Lounge
Thee-Dimensional Chess (on occasion)
Piloting shuttles, or fighters
|Personal History||Darok D'Tal , and Serenity Star McKenzie met 15 years ago in a night club on Earth. It was during this chance encounter that both Darok, and Serenity entered Pon Farr. After a one night stand, Darok left the next morning for his next Starfleet assignment.
9 months later, Serenity gave birth to a healthy baby girl, and named her Arianna McKenzie D'Tal, giving her Darok's last name. For the first few years of her life, Arianna was raised by her grandfather while her mother attended Starfleet Academy. Soon after Serenity's graduation from the Academy, the three of them moved to Vulcan where Arianna spent much time learning about her father, Martial Arts, and the Vulcan way.
On Arianna's 10th birthday, the three of them took a trip to Earth. Not long after their arrival, Arianna somehow managed to steal something belonging to a Klingon in a nearby neighborhood. As a result, her home was raided by Klingons looking for her, and the artifact. Arianna hid while she watched as her grandfather was brutally murdered, and her mother was raped, and kidnapped. Arianna barely managed to escape with her own life.
After a thorough investigation, Serenity was presumed dead, and since no one could locate Arianna's father, because he was knee deep in classified missions, she was taken back to Vulcan and put into an orphanage there.
As she grew older, Arianna somehow managed to find her father, and follow his career. She also started having black outs in which she could not remember the things she did. Around her 14th birthday, she was detained in the orphanage's solitary confinement area for causing serious injury to 15 people during one of her black outs.
After she was granted her grandfather's inheritance, she managed to contact her father without anyone knowing. Once she made him aware that she was indeed his daughter, he soon contacted the Vulcan High Command to explain the situation. Within only a few days, Arianna was released into her father's custody onboard the USS Seraphina.
Only a few weeks before they transferred off the Seraphina, Arianna's father performed a mind meld on her which stopped her blackouts. As a result of this mind meld, her memories of events which triggered the blackouts, and the memories of things she did during those blackouts came back to her. Another side effect of this particular mind meld is that one of her crystal blue eyes turned and remained pitch black.
Arianna lived onboard the USS Sentinel with her father until they were transferred off to the USS Discovery. Now, as a result of a technicality during a failed mission 2 years ago, they both live on the USS Merlin where she was given the provisional rank of Petty Officer 3rd Class.
Shortly after boarding the USS Merlin, they headed through the wormhole at Deep Space 9. The explosion of quantum energy from a quantum torpedo fired by the USS Defiant as they entered the wormhole sent them shooting to the other side of the Gamma Quadrant, leaving them stranded 2 years from home.
During the trip home, Arianna was hit hard by the death of her boyfriend, Evan Davies. The resulting depression had her throw herself into her work as her father's Yeoman, and building a shuttle, not to mention some medical work.
Upon their return to the Alpha Quadrant, Starfleet put Arianna through a written test for enlistment as a Non-Commissioned Officer at the request of Starfleet Intelligence when they learned of her provisional Non-Commissioned rank. Upon passing this exam, she was immediately accepted, and officially promoted to the rank of Petty Officer 2nd Class.
She was later promoted by her father to Petty Officer 1st class, shortly before transferring to Starbase 80.
She lives in fear of others, because even though her blackouts are no longer a reality, her temper is hot, and she fears that she may still hurt someone.
