Personality & Traits
|General Overview||T'Pollis is a hard person to pin down. While Stoic like many Vulcans, she can also let her hair down, so to speak, and be friendly with her fellow crew members. When on duty, she remains focused. Off duty, on most days, she spends time alone, reading engineering journals. If in a group setting, normally she will try to get someone into a game of chess, either the old style, the vulcan variant or 3D chess. Plus she is a fan of kal-toh|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths:
has telepathic abilities, not just empathy (Does not rely on them heavily)
Sometimes the telepathy can get a bit much, so she must meditate to quiet the voices she hears in her mind.
Keeping her emotions in check, while dealing with all the emotions around her can be hard.
Also, requires a shot when Pon Farr starts, so she doesn't get another incident like what happened at her time in the academy
Can be a bit aloof
|Ambitions||To get her own command one day and a ship where her daughter can be with her.|
|Hobbies & Interests||She is always up for a good book or article on the latest Engineering break through. She also enjoys a good game of chess, or other logic heavy games. Plus she enjoys reading about temporal mechanics
She has an extensive two three hour workout that includes suus mahna, jogging and meditation following her workout
|Personal History||Born to M'Kal a Vulcan female Science officer, And Kol Sodil a Betazoid counselor in the year 2366 her parents were killed one year later, in the Battle at Wolf 359. Guardianship was given to both sets of Grandparents, who would take her for six months at a time. As she grew up both sets of grandparents pulled her in two directions. The Vulcans tried to keep her emotionless, like them. They forced her to think like a Vulcan and forced science on her, though her Vulcan grandfather was a highly skilled engineer. Her Betazoid Grandmother pushed their way of life, the open emotions, the telepathy. Her Vulcan side gives her better control of her Telepathy, unlike many other half Betazoids. Often the two sides to her heritage cause great conflict with her, forcing her in keeping her mind trained with meditation.
At the age of eight, in 2374, Betazed was attacked by the dominion. Her paternal grandparents managed to get her off the planet as quickly as possible and she was sent to live with her grandparents on Vulcan. They never heard from her father's family after that, except for his mother, her paternal grandparent, who was a commander in starfleet.
When she reached the age of 17 T'Polis informed her living Grandparents of her wish to join Star fleet. All of her Grandparents, except her Vulcan Grandmother had been affiliated with Starfleet, and that lone grandmother was the only voice telling her to try the Vulcan Science Academy. It was her maternal grandfather she followed, into a life of engineering. Even though her Vulcan Grandmother didn't approve of her Granddaughter's choice, she still helped her get ready for the entrance exam.
At the Age of 18 she entered Star Fleet academy. While in Star Fleet Academy she kept her studies focused around Medicine, despite her Grandmother wanting her to be a scientist. She kept busy, mostly with school work and being on a tennis team, chess team and sailing team.
She passed all her classes near the top of her class, but her social life was no where near that excellent. With her mixed background she tended act snobby, and above those around her. Other times she was an emotion wreck, as her Pon-Farr at the age of 20 proved. With her mixed heritage, her telepathy broadcast her PonFarr, this resulted in many births nine months later at the Medical academy. She was also the mother of one, during this time. Her daughter was sent to live with her grandparents at the time.
As she graduated the academy she found mentors to speak to from both of her back grounds. Several were Mixed raced Vulcans. This grounded her, helping her gain some friends. As she got out of the academy, she was put onto a rundown Oberth class ship. This became her home for the next few years. She rose in ranks and position inside that tiny engine room, while reading about all the modern engineering breakthroughs
