Ensign Carmen Tis is currently serving as a Medical Officer aboard the USS Gorkon.
- Distinguishing features: Feint tattooing head to toe, rather like large freckles. Cold hands. Silver hairstreak at her nape.
- Abilities: Weak/not fully developed as in purebreds, so there is no strong telepathy, but more of an immune system response of a tattoo "itch/tingling" with no large amount of detailing. (Like when human's have a gut feeling). She has to be fairly close to get a tiny amount of detailing, but when it comes to voices, if it's a singled out voice, she can depict elements of good/bad/truth/lie.
- Too honest for her own good.
- Taste in Clothing (when off duty): Loves to be in overly flowing dresses, as feminine as she can, preferably in bare feet otherwise in high heels. Though tends to end up in more figure hugging garments, showing her feminine features, more often than not, with supple, well cushioned footwear.
- Playing the Elanin Singer Stones
- Basic Hydroponics
- Practicing the Hrisal & the Jem'Hadar Shock blade combat techniques.
- Traditional cooking of non-national dishes...then eating them.
- The sound of a well played Vulcan lute.
- Challenging herself.
- Blue trinkets.
- Felines & Tribbles.
- Cold showers.
- Walking over cool sands.
- Ferengi, due to her past. (often calls herself one after being clumsy. Though she'd still help one if in medical trouble.)
- Any animals that go past her knees in size.
- Overly apologetic.
- Parents: Trill Mother, Betazoid Father - Jadara & Renann Tis.
- Siblings: N/A
- Spouse: Looking
- Children: Wanted
- Counsellor: Looking
- Comm's friend: Waiting for a match
Born on Ledonia III, within the Thirteenth House of Betazed: House of Peace and Protection.
Her mother fell in love with her spring ball coach and began spending all of her free time with him. As a result, her father began to spend his lonely nights playing cards. At first he thought he might be able to interest her in playing, but it was too late.
He wanted to keep his wife because she was the mother of his only child.
A good friend of his, a Ferengi, introduced him to the card game Fizzban.
He found himself in trouble after a high-stakes game in which he covered for his friend's mistake.
Indebted now to the Cardassians for this blunder, he was forced out of Starfleet.
Carmen wanted to fulfil her father's dream of becoming a Starfleet medical officer and make him proud, so started training.
Shortly after, Jadara Tis, left her husband Rennan, refusing contact with them both.
Distraught and depressed, Carmen's father sank lower into depression.
This is when Carmen took a sabbatical from the academy to help her father and to get her own head back in its place.
After going back again to her academy training, she found herself to be one of the few older students, but has now made it as far as her 1st ship posting and is fighting to now keep her own dream, as well as her father's.
Due to her natural honesty, which can occasionally be as blunt as the Borg, Carmen can struggle to form friendships. Not through lack of trying though. Due to her past home life and the empath abilities she does have, she is in need of the occasional counselling session. Carmen also know's how to fix a med bed if she needs to...for the most part and with the right tools. Although Carmen Tis has had little exposure to Earth culture, she attended Starfleet Academy between the years of 2377 to 2396, as well as the University on Betazed, earning a degree in surgical medicine. The Betazoid race has telepathic abilities. Due to her half-trill heritage, Tis has only partial telepathic abilities and as a result is more of an empath, when within close proximity to other 2-lobed beings. She believes in the Betazed way of relationships, as less people are hurt that way. So an open-relationship is more for her. That being said, she has never had time to find herself close enough to someone to form that type of bond. She also is a believer in "waiting". Carmen Tis comes from the Thirteenth House of Betazed. This is not something she flaunts, due to wanting to make sure if she earns anything, it is off of her own merit alone. Plus, she doesn't like the fuss. When outside of her quarters, Carmen will almost always have her hair up, somehow or another (always with different styles, so as not to get bored) to show her Trill markings. Though they are feint, she wants to hide nothing from those around her. A partial defence mechanism.
2396 USS Njörðr
Carmen had not yet stepped aboard the USS Gorkon, instead was greeted by Lieutenant Commander Jocelyn Marshall, to be escorted to New Horizons conference, by USS Njörðr and her crew. After Commander Marshall had escorted Carmen Tis to the sickbay, to meet her Chief Medical Officer Genkos Adea. No sooner had she been introduced, than Carmen could recall an almighty jolt, before blacking out. Waking, to realise she was pinned down by her right leg and a large burning sensation across her shoulder blades. Commander Marshall wasn't far away and came with the help of Doctor Adea, to help Carmen up, finding out she had possibly contracted a Rushton infection, which Carmen had no recollection of ever hearing of before. The ship was belly up. Slowly they made their way through the ship, avoiding obstacles and the deceased, through corridors and jeffries tubes, heading to a safety point, indicated on screens sent by their Captain, Rear Admiral Quinn Reynolds. Along the way, Carmen had lost her hearing, possibly due to a blow on the head from the ship flip, and didn't see things that her other team mates were. Ie dogs and gas and tricorder readings. Along the thrio's travels, they acquired a new team member, Science Officer Joan Basilone, who had a few minor burns and scratches, plus a puppy, rescued from a blaze by Commander Marshall. They headed into a local laboratory and were able to scavenge some supplies, as well as getting a Decontamination Unit working, with the help of Ensign Basilone and all stepped in one-by-one, before large parasites rained down from the ceiling, prepared to attack. The team ran to the corridors, Basilone threw a homemade gas-bomb at the parasitic gas that was quickly headed toward them, at which point the onboard computers had decided to alert them that the ship was about to right itself. It did. Carmen could hear again, Basilone was bruised, along with Marshall but Adea got the Brunt of the ship re-flipping, by gaining several fractures across his body. Parasites gone, they collected themselves and they started again, down the corridor, where they were beamed, unbeknownst to them, aboard the Rescue ship, USS Yarahla. Safe at last, to collect their thoughts, bodies and each other.
