Personality & Traits

General Overview Maerys is a slightly standoffish woman, more concerned with her pursuits than being overly mindful of typical niceties, though she is not entirely unfriendly. Which can be disconcerting, considering the fact that her green blood and pointed ears tend to point to a Vulcan heritage. She is a touch telepath, and tends to avoid most physical contact with others, though doesn’t fear it.

While she is driven in her pursuits, she also knows how to remain calm under pressure, something that speaks well to both the Vulcan and Romulan sides of her lineage. A solid scientist in a number of fields, and a dedicated Starfleet Security officer for just over two decades, she takes her job very seriously. Laws must be enforced, criminals brought to justice, or the fabric of a free society will fold in on itself.

W- Strong Willed - Has been known to clash with command decisions that she views as illogical.
W- Brave - Has disobeyed orders to minimize loss of life on two occasions during her Starfleet career. While her actions were deemed to be court martial worthy, her valor has managed to keep her in the Starfleet uniform, though at a twice reduced rank.
W- Determined - She can’t let anything go. Once she gets a hold of something, she’s not letting up until she gets answers.
W- Competitive - Things can, and have, gone awry...
Ambitions To be the best at chasing down criminals.

Also, she’s never been able to determine where she actually came from, or who her parents were. This has always been a driving force behind the work that she has chosen to do for Starfleet, and, one day, she is hoping to find out what happened that left a Vulcan/Romulan hybrid abandoned on Earth as an infant.

Personal History Childhood:

Born 2348 to unknown parents, Maerys showed up on a freighter transport coming off of a starbase bordering the Romulan Neutral Zone. No one knows where she actually came aboard, but once she was found, she was delivered to the Sol system. After multiple attempts were made to find her parents, and many diplomatic requests were made to see if either the Vulcans, or the Romulans, would lay claim to her, failed, she was placed with an adoptive family on Earth and raised among the many aliens that called the world their home.

Childhood:

She was brought up under the watchful eye of the Federation Council, not that she ever knew that, both of her parents being retired Starfleet Security officers. The Vulcan/Romulan hybrid had often drawn strange looks from people, and had often been the butt of cruel jokes, but as time passed, and under the loving tutelage of her adoptive, Human, parents, she had learned a self-sufficient strength, and had earned the trust of those around her.

Academy:

At an early age, Maerys was accepted into Starfleet Academy, and she thrived under the pressure of the high paced environment. She dove into her studies in the sciences, yet felt a pull towards real world applications. It wasn’t long before she followed in the footsteps of her adoptive parents and began her pursuits of law enforcement degrees as well as her science regimen, which eventually evolved into her specialization in the forensic sciences.

As she grew older, the physical links to her Romulan heritage began to fade, leaving her browline far more Vulcan in appearance. This made it somewhat easier to fit in as she began her life in Starfleet Academy, though her behavior was just a bit off for a Vulcan, and she has more than a couple of reprimands from her...ahem...wild youth. Still, she managed to graduate at the top of her class, then continued for another year for specialized lab training, before actually being assigned to her first duty station.

Adult:

Maerys has never married, though has had a number of relationships that never seem to last. Her work tends to take over and leave little time for amorous encounters. Some have joked that her work is her first, and only, love, but that’s a bit harsh. While she may look Vulcan, she does have passions, they just tend to be a secondary concern to her assigned duties.

Her career has been spotted by two court martials that saw her reduced in rank and re-assigned to different duty posts. While her behavior was considered to be out of line, they also saved numerous lives, which is the only reason that she was allowed to continue along in her Starfleet career.
