Physical Appearance

Physical Description At a distance, Tekka looks more like a half breed of Vulcan than anything else. Her skin isn't fully grey, infarct it is more of a normal flesh tone. From the slight ridges on her neck, to the ridges and spoon-like indentation on her forehead. But normally her black hair is kept long enough to keep the forehead spoon and eyebrow ridges hidden. The neck ridges are a different story, although, without a close examination, one can barely tell they are there.either.

Yet that isn't the only thing that makes her stand out. Her eyes are as black as any Betazoid and her ears have a slight point to them, a nod to her Vulcan and Betazoid ancestry too. It is those two things that show she is less than a full blooded Cardassian. Normally she wears her hair down, to cover her ears, though sometimes, when she is busy, it is pulled into a bun.

She is slightly above average height for a female, and in shape, though not as good of shape as she could strive for. Her Cardassian and Vulcan sides do make her stronger than most humans.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Since she is only a quarter Vulcan, she doesn't repress her emotions as much as some full or half Vulcans do. While she is not openly stoic, she can have moments where she will act like it. Normally when she is elbows been in a shuttle. She can also get the arrogance that many Vulcan's seem to have and that most Cardassians do have.

At times her personalty is more like her fathers, open and fun loving. She does her best to limit her time around people, as the mixing of races can cause an echo effect of voices in her head.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths.

Teeka is stronger than most humans, a trait from her Cardassian and Vulcan sides. She is also a very skilled engineer, having been trained by her mother, Grandmother and Grandfather. She has a love of working on shuttles of all shapes and sizes, but loves Delta Flyers and Runabouts. She is versed in several languages.


Her telepathy comes with a downside. Her Cardassian heritage causes the voices she picks up to echo in her head. If it goes unchecked, she can blackout from over stimulation.. She can also seem like she treats people as better than herself, but she doesn't do it intentional.
Ambitions Her main ambition is to get her telepathy under control. After that, she is considering if she wants to stay enlisted, or go for a commission.

As for Family, she doesn't want to give a child the pain she feels with her mental gifts and curses.
Hobbies & Interests Engines and shuttles. That's her biggest interests.

But she also enjoys Vulcan games of skill and intellect, like Kal Toh and the Cardassian game Kotra. Plus she enjoys a game of chess (any style) with her grandfather, plus meditation. She is a fan of music from all over the Federation and an even bigger fan of food from all over the place.

Personal History Tekka's family is a mixed one. From her maternal grandmother who ran from cardassia Prime when she was framed for a crime she didn't commit, to her maternal Grandfather, who mated with her during Pon-far and stayed with her because it was logical, to her Betazoid father. Her mother and father met on Earth and hit it off.

During the Dominion war, her mother could feel all eyes on her, but she worked with star fleet engineering corps, while her father, the doctor, stayed with her.

At the age of three, Tekka's grandmother and Grandfather took the child to Vulcan, while her parents were away. There Tekka was given her schooling in the classic Vulcan ways. Like her mother, Grandmother and Grandfather, the subject of Engineering came easiest to the young girl.

As she grew up, she found she enjoyed the heat of the Vulcan home world, over the weather on Betazed. Most of her childhood and teen years were spent on Vulcan, with occasional visits to Betazed to see her Paternal grandparents. At age ten, she attempted her first trip to the Vulcan's forge to partake in Khas-Wan. She failed and was rescued as she barely made it out alive. At age 11, she undertook the ritual again, this time completing it.

When she turned twelve, she was taken to Earth with her father and was put on a youth survival course. After completing that, she stayed in the wilderness for another two weeks, staying with the next two teams of youths that showed up. But in the end, she felt it wasn't nearly as engaging as the Vulcan's forge.

At sixteen, she went into the rite of Tal'oth, and completed that.

When she turned seventeen, she wanted to enter the academy, but as she got around untrained minds, the voices would echo in her head. This echoing caused her to blackout during her entrance exam.

Her father worked on a way to quiet the voices, but Tekka had decided to try the boot camp for enlisted personal instead. She was too embarrassed to try the academy again. With her father's medical help, and her Grandfather's help in meditation, and her own tenacity, she pushed through the bootcamp.

Due to her mental issues and her mechanical mind, she was sent to the shipyards, where she was put to work building shuttles. After five years of working with meditation and her medicinal backup, she has decided it was time to join the fleet. So the commander of the shipyards pulled some favors and sent her off towards the unknown.
