Innocent and trusting, her good nature leads her to be tricked by the Romulans and Federation. Chandra develops a dislike of non-Laudeans and distrust of them too.
Extreme Left of centre. The naturalists are almost anti-technology and against modernisation. In touch with their environment and the elements they are often powerful fielders and very down to earth people. Not overly politically active but a lot of support in more rural areas of Duronis II. Strong attachment to their space of nature and sharing many of the early beliefs that set up the fielding league but much more part of the people and a way of life. Refusal to acknowledge the modern world makes them a smaller party.
Interestingly, the Naturalists stand in contrast to the Fielding League (and Tradionalist party) with whom they have historically always disagreed. They develop their fielding abilities with nature, fielding with nature and nature's history -freely rather than as part of a ceremony or set of organised beliefs. Although both Fielding League and Naturalists Field, the naturalists disagree with the organisation and ritualisation of such events. They represent a traditional way of life from before the Fielding League's organisation and were often persecuted by the league for their emancipated beliefs.
In 2383, Ahishma Chandra has been chosen by the Naturalists to be their leader. She, however, remains relatively unengaged with daily politics and prefers the freedom of the forest in her home Govinda.
After the Romulan's Homeworld was destroyed when the Hobus star went supernova, the Romulans vacated their Embassy, and what had beome a cruel reign over the Laudeans. Chandra, older and a bit wiser, saw it as an opportunity to be free of the Romulan's treatment of her people for good.
Having ousted Federation four years earlier, she devised a plan to have them come back to their Embassy, not so much for the diplomatic end - she could have cared less about that. Moreso she saw their presence as a deterrent to any species that would try to strip the planet of it's resourses and/or endanger her people, especially the Fieldings, but the Federation didn't have to know that.
