Personality & Traits

General Overview Despite her upbringing, Nirya is an optimistic young woman, curious about the world around her, who tries to be cordial to those she encounters
Strengths, Weaknesses, and Quirks Naryi is a friendly young woman, curious about the universe and wanting very much live out the credo of Starfleet, to "boldly go." She has a wide range of interests and can discuss intelligently a myriad of subjects. She looks at any obstacle as an opportunity to learn and grow herself mentally.

Though friendly, she still tends to keep most people at an emotional distance, and is very recalcitrant about discussing any part of her life prior to the Academy.

Has an incredibly accurate internal clock
Ambitions To eventually be the head of a research and development team that designs new starships for Starfleet, incorporating and inventing new technologies into her designs.
Hobbies, Interests, Likes, and Dislikes Leonardo da Vinci
Charcoal sketching
Number Theory
Japanese poetry
Igneous petrology
Languages Known Adranan, English, Italian, Japanese
Medical profile Physiology nearly identical to humans, although there are certain key internal differences, such as in brain chemistry. In addition, had a bio-engineered parasite involuntarily introduced into her system, which had the effect of connecting disparate areas of her brains. To date, she is the only Troglyte to have had this procedure done, as Troglytes are considered too mentally inferior to benefit from the procedure.
Defining Quotes and/or Character Beliefs "The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding." -- Leonardo da Vinci

"The secret of happiness is this: let your interests be as wide as possible, and let your reactions to the things and persons that interest you be as far as possible friendly rather than hostile." -- Bertrand Russell

Personal History Although her birth certificate shows her being born in Stratos, there is no official record relating any data about Naryi's parents or ancestry. And if her guardian/employer Dr. Soske Neelos knew anything about her parents, he never divulged any information to Nirya before his death.

Dr. Neelos was considered a brilliant but eccentric scientist devoted to the study of the Troglyte subclass of Ardanan's who took Nirya into his household as part of his studies. Since Nirya was part of that small group of Troglytes allowed to live in Stratos as part of the serving class, she had no recourse to object to the education/training system Dr. Neelos developed for her. Not that it was inhumane, particularly considering that Troglytes considered subversive were subject to torture and capital punishment without appeal, but her schooling, though thorough and wide ranging, was not administered in a manner that a human educator would approve of.

In the Kelvin Universe, Ardana would become a Federation member in 2249, and in 2252, the USS Aisling would visit Ardana to request Zenite for the outbreak of a botanical plague on Marik III. This would in turn precipitate a rebellion by the Troglyte miners, led by the disruptors. Dr. Neelos would discover the effect of an unseen gas exuded by Zenite on Troglyte physiology and a combination of this discovery, along with the diplomatic efforts of the commander of the Aisling, successfully resolved the dispute between the Stratos city dwellers and the troglytes, as well as secured the zenite.

The confrontation, unfortunately, would lead to Dr. Neelos' death. At the time, Naryi was working at a maintenance technician in the city, though thanks to the parasite Dr. Neelos had introduced into her body as an infant, as well as her education, Naryi might have had the best practical and theoretical understanding of Stratos' transmat and antigrav systems in the city. Tensions were still running pretty high among the city dwellers, however, and the High Council was inclined to send Naryi and a few other troglytes back to the surface. Instead, the Commander of the Aisling, who had become friendly with Dr. Neelos' young charge/test subject, brought Naryi back to Earth on the Aisling and had her placed in a progressive group home.

During the journey back to Earth, Naryi became...impressed seems to mild a word...with the workings of the Aisling and everything about Starfleet in general. The group home she had been placed in allowed Naryi to become accustomed to Earth's social codes, and within a year of being on Earth, she applied for entrance to Starfleet Academy, for which the commander of the Aisling happily sponsored her for.

During the Academy, she became best friends with her suitemates, and immersed herself in their cultures when the opportunity arose. She became especially enamored with the life and times of one Leonardo da Vinci, studying everything she could about him, and visiting every locale where surviving art works and writings by the Renaissance Italian polymath could be found. Da Vinci inspired Naryi to stretch her mental boundaries and interests as far as she could. By the time she graduate from the Academy with honors in Engineering, she felt that had, at least in a small, beginning way, began to successfully emulate the Maestro.
