Jennifer Margaret Wilks was your average young girl. Her life, unfortunately, was cut drastically short. At the tender age of 10, her family was visiting her maternal grandmother in San Francisco. While touring the city, Jenny was caught under a failing antigrav sled. Her life was fading quickly...too quickly for medical help. A passing Vulcan woman, Sovek, who had just escaped from a the medical facility where she was being held, performed a Vulcan mind meld in an effort to comfort the dying child. During their melded state Jenny's body died and her consciousness entered Sovek. The presence of a second mind allowed Sovek to stabilize her irrational state. The two became integrated, and remain so to this day, although in most situations Sovek keeps Jenny submerged.

While this dual state initially worried Starfleet Medical, it rapidly became clear that the two personalities, although integrated in some ways, remained essentially two individuals. Sovek, as the elder personality, remained in charge. But she still maintains contact with Jenny's parents, whenever she can.

If anything, since the accident Sovek's performance has improved. Her theory is that the presence of the child has provided a new perspective on emotion and its positive aspects. This integration has made Sovek highly interested in human culture, especially time periods where the human race was learning to overcome its baser instincts and use positive emotions to great benefit. She has acquired a great deal of material on the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, and is fond of media from the time, including films and music.

Occasionally, during private moments with people she trusts, she will allow Jenny to the surface, becoming humorous, playful, and sometimes even flirty. Sovek has noted that Jenny's consciousness appears to be maturing, and what effect this may have on their integration is unknown.

Sovek's steel blue eyes are out of place on a Vulcan. Records indicate that Sovek was born with brown eyes, but that Jenny Wilks had steel blue eyes.

Probably due to the influence of Jenny, Sovek's hobbies include drawing and "flirting". Jenny would be entering her middle teen years if her body had survived.
