Basic Information

Gender Female
Species Deltan

Physical Appearance

Height 5' 10"

Hair Color Caramel Brown
Eye Color Sea Gray
Physical Description As most Deltans are viewed, Tira is considered quite beautiful. Her height is balanced out nicely with her slender weight, never appearing gangly or awkward in it. Across the bridge of her nose and her high cheekbones rests the only light smattering of freckles on her entire body. Her almond shaped gray blue eyes are nicely matched with soft, yet defined jaw line. The only hair on her body, as per Deltan racial features, is that of her eyebrows and lashes - both being of a caramel brown tint. Preferring the idea of appearing as a 'classic' beauty, Tira wears little to no makeup and keeps her fair tanned skin smooth. Her dress, outside of uniform, is usually kept simply with perfectly tailored clothing in more neutral and soothing colors.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Her glass is always half full, as most would say. Despite appearing stoic almost all the time during her rounds, she does have quite the sense of humor - generally making an appearance through a series of horrible puns. Cleanliness is of the utmost importance to her. Constantly, she is sorting and correcting errors in organization. She believes that even if all hell is breaking loose, she can take control and make it right again. As a young girl, she was taught cleanliness was of the utmost importance. Tira has held this in regard almost to the extreme, keeping everything she can in immaculate condition. Having a certain amount of empathic abilities, Tira was made her keen on keeping those around her happy and calm.
Strengths & Weaknesses Her obsessive compulsive nature can be viewed as both a strength and a weakness as it can lead to her noticing something maybe someone may have missed, or it can cause her to miss the larger picture. She is also very caring towards others feelings and what may be going on in their lives. This has caused her many problems in the past; however, as sometimes she does not understand the meaning of personal boundaries. She can come off as being 'too motherly' and nurturing to those that do not ask. Her father always believed that her inquisitive nature would take her far. She has taken this to heart and applied it to her day to day life. Her commanding, clear voice is a bonus in her job, but can be seen as 'demanding' in normal circumstances. She's very smug in her knowledge, sometimes being a know-it-all.
Ambitions Always one for simple, her strongest ambition was to find her own niche in the world.
Hobbies & Interests She has an odd fascination with old Terran Soap Operas. She believes that these 'soaps' explain human relationships at their extremes. Harlequin romance novels also fall under this category. With many visitors traveling to Delta IV (well, her moons), Tira became fascinated with various faiths - later pursuing a job as a chaplain. During her studies, she picked up an instrument known as a celestial harp. The shape of the Celestial Harp is based on the proportions inherent in the circle, the square and the spiral. There are seventy-two strings radiating out from the center across a spiral bridge and out to a square bridge. There is also a circle of frets. There are eight double strings and a direct relationship of each string to the sixty-four hexagrams of the I Ching. Each string has its own frets. She's practiced it for many years and believes herself to be quite good at it. Religious studies are also of an extreme interest to her. She's studied various human beliefs, along with Ferengi, Klingon, and Bajoran faiths.

Personal History

Personal History Born September 28th, 2352 on Delta IV, Tira was the only child of Kai and Maru, both Deltans. She led a very typical Deltan life from her birth on through her schooling. Throughout what would be the equivalent of middle grades and high school, she thrived in the theological courses. She and her family got along famously, they almost coddling her throughout her life - due to her only child status. Feeling a sense of being something other than a spoiled teen on a planet of paradise, she decided that her talents in religious studies could be put to good use. Tira enlisted in Starfleet, so she could have an active job as a chaplain's assistant while working for her own path to become one. After having some minor troubles in her schooling, she still completed her Master of Divinity. With Master's Degree in hand and some more training, Tira moved on in her career, being stationed on the USS Pembroke as a Morale Officer. On such a small ship, Tira has to pull double duty later on as a Damage Control Specialist. Her own faith began to wane as time trudged onward and fewer people seemed interested in their own. It felt best to her to set her job aside as a chaplain, so she could find her faith once more. Her time on the Pembroke came to an end, probably for the best, and her transfer papers sent her to the USS Shanghai to be a Bosun.
