Rynna was born the youngest of two daughters to Delvan Faldo and Pandressi in the Bajoran city of Ilvia, where her father was a museum curator and historian. Her mother worked in physics, so it was no surprise when Rynna showed a tendency toward the sciences as well. She did well in all academic subjects, but especially prospered in the sciences. When she was only twelve, her mother and father separated and her mother was sent to Vulcan to assist with a project there. Her father kept Rynna’s older sister, Belrasa - or Bel - as she was nearing her graduation from secondary school and was going to attend the Bajoran Institute of Sciences to study xenobotany.

Rynna, however, went with her mother to Vulcan and was assigned to continue her studies at the local Vulcan school. Although she missed Bajor, Rynna soon found herself enamored with Vulcans and their society. She even envied their stoicism and their mental abilities, and wished that one day she would meet a Vulcan who she could spend her life with.

Out of necessity, Rynna was forced to learn Vulcan. And learn it she did. In a remarkably short period of time, she had mastered the language to the point of near fluency and was able to do all of her schoolwork in Vulcan, which pleased her Vulcan teachers (though they would never openly admit to any kind of emotion such as pleasure). Her rapid mastery of the language did not go unnoticed, however, and a Vulcan educator by the name of Saval began to test her abilities. His findings astounded the other Vulcan teachers. And her mother.

Soon, Rynna was put on a special learning path to help her master as many languages as she could handle before her graduation from secondary education. She exceeded even Saval’s expectations, and because of this he recommended her to the Vulcan Science Academy for post-secondary studies, specifically in the field of Linguistics. To everyone’s surprise, the Academy accepted her, and she studied there for another two years, before the administrators of the academy decided she had reached her limit of learning potential and wanted to make room for other students.

Disappointed, since she had grown to really love the study of other languages, and how they provided a unique insight to the respective cultures, she applied to Starfleet Academy. The Academy turned down her request for the officer’s program, but did offer her a spot as an enlisted candidate. Her advisor informed her that if she passed and did well in the fleet, she could always apply for the Officer’s Candidacy Program and if accepted, it would give her a chance to become an officer. Pleased by this, she took the enlisted courses and soon graduated, heading to the Fleet as a Linguistic Specialist. She recently applied to OCS, but was turned down, but she was also advised to improve her training and skills and to reapply at a later date. A challenge which she fully intends to accept.


  • Quarters: Immaculate - well, her side. Her roommate’s side? Not so much.
  • Favorite Room: Bedroom
  • Mannerisms: Due to her training at the VSA, Rynna is extremely practical and takes time to consider all angles before making a decision, and is thus rarely impulsive. The one exception to this is when she is busy doing what she calls “girl time” where she goes shopping, visits a spa, gets a makeover, etc. At these times she feels it acceptable to just let loose and be herself for a while.
  • Religion/Spiritual Devotion: Since the discovery that The Prophets were just aliens living in a wormhole, Rynna no longer believes in their divine nature and is thus not religious. Though she does have a bit of a lingering spiritual side to her, it’s not devoted to any deities.
  • Hobbies and Pastimes:
    • Swimming
    • Studying - especially new languages
    • “Girl time” - Shopping, Spa Days, Makeup/Makeovers, etc.
  • Likes:
    • Everything Vulcan
    • Learning new languages
    • Hasperat
    • Kava fruit
  • Dislikes:
    • Assumptions that she follows the Prophets as deities
    • Untidiness
    • Uncontrolled Chaos
  • Ambitions and Goals:
    • To master as many languages as she possibly can
    • Marry a Vulcan
  • Achievements in Life:
    • Has mastered Bajoran, Vulcan, Federation Standard, Andorian, Tellarite, and Klingon; proficiencies in all three Romulan dialects, Cardassian, Xindi, Rodulan, and Ferengi.
    • Due to her high aptitude for Linguistics, Rynna was recommended to, and studied at, the Vulcan Science Academy. A rare opportunity for a non-Vulcan.
  • Disappointments in Life:
    • Was not accepted into the Officer’s program at Starfleet Academy, though she hopes to still be able to get there someday.
  • Temperment:
    • Driven
    • Perfectionist
  • Mental problems (complexes and phobias): Mild OCD
  • Physical Limitations: None at this time
