Friends & Colleagues
Jade is desperate to make friends with her crewmates but fears they will reject her when they realize that she is not as brave as she tries to come across. Her love life is a bit of failure with a string of bad or failed dates. She does have feelings for both Doctor Charles Sampi and Marine James Martin, but nothing has so far come together.
Jade and her brother were born in space to human parents who ran cargo convoys, some of questionable legal status. Jade has spent over 80% of her time living on various vessels and stations and feels strange on a planet's surface. Her father left the family when Jade was only 4, and she learned her flying and fighting skills from her mother, herself the daughter of a bounty hunter. When Jade's mother went missing during a cargo run to a hostile planet, Jade was left to care for her younger brother. She decided to join Starfleet to make some good of her skills, but she can come across a little headstrong and impulsive - always wanting to be at the heat of battle.
|Starfleet Service Record
Jade went on her first full mission aboard the USS Independence-A to help the Romulan refugees on the Bilire VI colony, but there she was captured along with Captain Riley and Doctor Sampi by a race called the Reapers. Along with the others, Jade was tortured and had her deepest fears exposed. She was also forced into a deathly dance with the leader of the Reapers, something only one other person has ever survived. Thankfully she and her crewmates were rescued soon after.
Jade returned to the Independence a changed woman. The terrifying experience had eaten away at her earlier enthusiasm, and recurring nightmares and feelings of loneliness have cut away at the young woman's confidence. She spoke to Captain Riley about her fears and was reassured that not all missions would be as painful and as horrific as what they faced with the Reapers.
Unfortunately, the next mission to the Mirror Universe saw Jade and Velana captured by Inquisitor Sudra and tortured for information. They survived, but now Jade no longer sees any happiness to be likely so long as she serves in Starfleet. It will all be pain!
After the return of the crew to Deep Space 17, Jade was commended for her actions and promoted to Chief of Security aboard the USS Tiger-A, the replacement for the USS Independence-A that was destroyed in the mirror universe.
