Keehani Ukinix was born in 2375 during the Dominion War. She was the daughter of Cigrin Ukinix. Both of her parents were Betazoids, although the identity of her mother is not known. Several days after she was born, her parents died, and Keehani was moved to be with her Grandmother, Vaxa Ukinix. From that point on, Vaxa raised Keehani and became her guardian. The details of how Keehani was delivered to her grandmother are unknown.
When Keehani was the equivalent age of 9 Earth months old, Vaxa agreed to change her and Keehani's family name to Ral after a protracted legal battle with the Houses of Betazed. Vaxa kept the details of her matriarchy secret from Keehani until early 2396, when Vaxa was diagnosed with a rare and acute neural disorder, a possible side effect of Empathic Synaesthesia.
Tracing Her Lineage
Once Keehani was told the truth about her grandmother, Keehani immediately set about for Vaxa to regain control of the Ninth House. Keehani attempted to discover more about the Ukinix family, only to find that records of them were difficult to obtain, largely due to the actions of the other Betazed houses. However, Keehani was eventually able to determine that Vaxa's brother, Astradem Ukinix, had moved to Earth and married a human woman. Through "underground" sources she was able to obtain the name of Astradem's grandson Wil Ukinix from Starfleet records.
Several days after Vaxa told her about her past, Keehani applied to change her family name back to Ukinix. However, this was met with bureaucratic resistance from Betazed officials. After several months of delays and numerous legal threats, the RAoB (Registration Administration of Betazed) eventually granted her request.
Keehani is studying exopolitics at the University of Betazed, Medara campus. Along with many other students at the campus, she is currently a member of the political activist group known as the Guardians of Betazed.
