Position Chief Operations Officer
|Eye Color||Light Grey|
|Physical Description||Diminutive and slender, she is not exactly an imposing figure. Inquisitive, light grey eyes peer out from a softly tanned face that is framed by long, thick, black hair that is normally pulled up while in uniform, yet allowed to hang naturally when off duty.|

|Other Family||Admiral T’Vyn (Commanding Officer, Diversity Fleet, Federation Ambassador)|
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Raised at the knee of her Ambassador grandmother, T’Lyra has a softer demeanor about her than most of her brethren, often being described as serene rather than stoic. She has learned some degree of diplomacy from the venerable matron of her family. As a result of her upbringing on the USS Infinite Diversity, her views on the various alien races differ drastically from many Vulcans, which makes her interactions with others seem more at ease.|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths:
-Non-Violent (Trained but unlikely to utilize it unless absolutely necessary)
|Ambitions||To utilize her skill at engineering and the sciences to the best of her ability. Perhaps one day she will be able to revolutionize some aspect of her chosen field for the benefit of the Federation.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Linguistics
Music (Plays the ka’athyra, as well as a number of other instruments)
|Personal History||Born on the USS Infinite Diversity, T’Lyra spent a majority of her childhood traveling the stars with her mother, grandmother, and one of her aunts, learning from them how to conduct herself around the many and varied races of the galaxy. It was obvious fairly early in her life that she showed a talent for engineering and the sciences, rather than anything tactical or diplomatic in nature. It was a path that was encouraged for her, even though finding bits and parts of the ship disassembled to satisfy her curiosity led her into some trouble along the way.
At the age of fifteen, she was sent to begin training at the Vulcan Science Academy, where she studied Engineering, Computer Sciences, as well as the general sciences. After five years of study, she joined Starfleet, following the tradition set by her grandmother, who has served Starfleet since the time of Admiral Kirk. At Starfleet Academy, T’Lyra earned advanced degrees in her chosen fields, as well as Xeno-Linguistics, and she discovered that she had a skill for music that she had not realized previously.
She was recruited immediately out of the Academy to serve Diversity fleet as an engineer and worked her way up to Assistant Chief of Operations Officer aboard the USS Infinite Diversity over her nine year span of service. However, there was a limit to what rank and position that she could achieve under her grandmother’s command. As a result, the admiral believed it to be best to transfer her to another command, one where she could fully utilize the knowledge and skills that she has been honing during her service.
