Familal Relationships

Ishani family yasminNew.jpg

Yasmin Kasun

The former dockmaster of several starbases over the course of her career, Yasmin was an independent, tough, take no crap woman. Born in a colony on Mars, the oldest of three and the only girl, Yasmin entered Starfleet Academy at the age of 19. She was posted to Starbase 29 as an engineer and worked her way up to dockmaster. She excelled in the position and would end up being posted as the dockmaster at several starbases over the course of her career. Ishani’s conception had been unplanned but was not unwanted, and she and her mother had a very close, loving relationship that lasted until Yasmin’s death.

Jakarn SB118.png


A popular author and producer. Ishani is Jakarn’s third child and first daughter born after the fall of his homeworld, thus her father spent more effort into maintaining a connection with her and her older brothers than he would do with his many subsequent children. Still her father wasn’t involved much in her upbringing (mostly regular calls, sometimes an in person visit) which suited her mother just fine. They’ve become closer since Ishani’s mother passed on, though Ishani finds his hedonistic, celebrity lifestyle exasperating.

Taelon AO2.jpg

Half Brother and Crewmate

Taelon is the second of her many half siblings Ishani has met. Their father asked her to keep an eye on him, stating that Taelon "needs all the help he can get", and from their limited interactions with each other Ishani can't help but feel that Jakarn might have understated things a bit.


Father's Protoge and Crewmate

A former slave of the Orion Syndicate, Aitas was bought and released by Ishani's father. Ishani had met Aitas a few times before she joined Starbase 118 while the young woman was in her father's employ. Jakarn has apparently also asked Aitas to look after Taelon (something which Ishani admits she could use the help), but she can't help feel that Aitas also needs some looking after herself.

Professional Relationships


Tyler Kelly

A senior security officer, Ishani has only recently been able to work with the man, having joined during his leave of absence. Their first mission served together was certainly memorable, she saved his life from drifting off into space and he got to watch her embarrass herself after receiving a concussion. The start of a wonderful working relationship.

Ezo, Mirra.png

Mirra Ezo

Ishani has served with Doctor Ezo on two missions so far and has been significantly injured in both of them. While not at the level of needing her own personal room in the medbay, it’s not the greatest track record to start a working relationship with. Still, she's on good terms with the CMO who has seen her at her best and also at her most embarrassing, but Mirra's nice enough not to tease too much.



Ishani met Lieutenant Kro when he was called by Dr. Ezo to carry her defiant butt to the Albion’s medical bay. She proceeded to flirt shamelessly the entire way, which he admittedly didn’t mind. She later asked him out and he accepted, proving the adage correct that nearly getting blown up really brings people together.

Trellis Vondaryan.png

Trellis Vondaryan
Former Crewmate

Trellis was one of the first two people Ishani had ever met on base and the leader of her team on her first mission as a member of Starbase 118. They did not have much time to get to know each other before his transfer to the USS Za, which guarantees the special place he holds in Ishani’s memories of Starfleet will never be tarnished.

The Cats


Ishani owns two 9 year old, female Ragdoll cats who are two in a long line of therapy cats she’s owned since she joined a group practice around 50 years ago. Peony and Camellia are sisters and come from a breeder that specializes in therapy cats that Ishani has patronized and recommended to her clients before. With Ishani’s job change they haven’t been getting out much, which means any visitors to her apartment will get swarmed, analyzed and then given the appropriate level of cat loving.

They’re both large for female Ragdolls; weighing in at almost 20 pounds they’re up there with the largest male Maine Coons and larger than most small dogs. Temperament wise Peony is a calm, snuggly lap cat, while her sister Camellia is much more playful, curious, loud and demanding. Due to their background, they love being around people and are both highly intelligent, trained, and attuned to the feelings of others around them.
