Character Background

Personal History Lani was born at her family home on Trill, her mother had suffered a difficult pregnancy due to various factors and it was advised she be planetary bound for her baby’s birth. Growing up amongst the Trill Kiara was something of an oddity, one of very few if not the only half Trill to exist.

Moving onto her Father’s ship when she was five opened up a whole new world to Lani. Visiting planets and Starbases she was completely fascinated by everything she saw. She continued to explore with her parents until she was ten when her Betazoid abilities decided to manifest considerably early leaving her mother to take her to Betazed to learn control from the experts there. It was a stressful few years of hard training but she eventually learned to fully control her abilities.

Lani remained on Betazed, enrolling at Betazed university at the age of sixteen to study Psychology. She was a dedicated student and proved herself to be a natural in her field, graduating with the highest honours two years later.

Expressing a wish to join Starfleet Academy She was sponsored for entry by her father and was enthralled to be accepted. She followed the Sciences track following in her mother’s footsteps.

It wasn’t until Leilani joined the USS Nimitz that she faced a nightmare that she is still coming to terms with. After the rescue of a survivor from a mass slaying she became a new victim for him, she was tortured and forced to defend herself but not until after he forced himself on her, using his own knife to stab him which in turn lead to his death.

The ensuing trial found her innocent, the death attributed to self defence but she still has nightmares. She took a year off her career to have skin grafts on some of her scars and to consider her future before deciding to return to Starfleet.

She has since proved herself to be a very capable Marine, as well as a Scientist in her role as Archaeologist and Anthropologist.

Since boarding the Elysium Leilani has met and fallen head over heels in love with George Charles. They married less than a day after their first meeting.
