|Lieutenant Commander Elina Kincade|
Lieutenant Commander Elina Kincade is a 41-year-old Nurse aboard the USS Astraeus. She previously served as an engineer, nurse and operations officer respectively aboard the starships Eagle and Challenger-A. She served as Chief Nursing Officer aboard the Duronis II Embassy prior to taking an indefinite sabbatical from Starfleet due to health concerns.
Elina was born in Inverness, Scotland on stardate 235812.17 to Ross and Marie Kincade. She is the middle child of three. Most of her childhood years were spent chasing her brothers and several other town boys around the lochs of Scotland. She refused her father’s attempts to match her with a husband. At age 14, her mother began training her in the duties of a laird’s wife. She learned crafts such as washing, sewing, and the running of a household. Her mother also educated her in the areas of literature, mathematics, theater, languages (French and Italian), and history. Outside of her normal education, she and her brother Ross would sneak off to a secluded keep in the woods and he would teach her how to fix replicators and other machines important to the supply of their lands. It was at this time that Elina realized her mechanical ability and her interest in fixing things.
At age 16, Elina began studying to pass the Academy entrance exam. It wasn’t until age 17 that she expressed her desire to study engineering at the Academy to her parents. Her father was disappointed, but supported his daughter’s decision. On stardate 237606.17, Elina took the exam and passed. She was admitted to the Academy on stardate 237608.15 as an engineering cadet.
After graduating and completing her cadet cruise, Elina decided to take a post as an Engineer aboard an Earth Cargo freighter, the Valdise, while she waited for her posting to an active Starfleet vessel. What was intended to be a temporary assignment turned into something more permanent. She served aboard the Valdise for four years, one of those years as a nurse when several of their nurses left for more prestigious opportunities. However, Elina missed Starfleet. She returned to active service and was assigned as an Engineering Officer aboard the USS Eagle.

Elina is action-oriented and strives to make the most of every moment and every opportunity. She often struggles to sit still and is always looking for new ideas and never shies away from a good adventure. Those who know her consider her to be a jack-of-all-trades. She's constantly reinventing herself. She regularly changes her hair and wardrobe. Her optimistic nature means she tends to look on the bright side and see the good in every situation. She's flexible and is good at adapting to new situations and challenges. Though she is able to present herself depending on the people she's around, she never consciously misrepresents herself to others.
She is open and adaptable but tends to avoid anything that she perceives as tying her down or that will curb her freedom to be spontaneous. She is reluctant to take on long-term commitments and prefers to go where there are a wide array of options. She likes to keep busy and is happiest when her schedule is full of activities and tasks. She doesn’t really like having downtime as she sees that time as wasted. While she is flexible and spontaneous, she can’t stand hold-ups that keep her waiting such as delayed flights or unexpectedly long queues. This can test her typically easy-going and flexible nature, igniting her hot temper.
She's very frank and open-minded. When she has something to say, she says it. This comes from her need to make things happen in her life rather than waiting for them to happen to her. As a result of her desire for freedom, she is humorous and optimistic. She's very generous with her time and her possessions. When her friends are down, she uses her lively nature to cheer them up and to push them to become the best versions of themselves. Those she's close to appreciate her blunt honesty and high energy.
Her wisdom and philosophical approach to life can surprise those who don't know her well. She's motivated by a desire for justice and has a strong sense of right and wrong. These things combined with her strong desire to help others is an asset and make her talented at handling emergencies and getting her friends out of tight spots. Her adaptability allows her to think outside of the box and come up with unique solutions to difficult problems.
Her driven, want-it-now nature can help her in achieving her goals. However, she can become so laser-focused on a set path that she becomes careless. She tends to take things for granted and can at times take unnecessary risks. This can lead to more problems if she doesn't catch it in time. She is impatient and doesn't always take a practical approach to solve problems. She has to force herself to slow down and analyze the situation more thoughtfully. As a young officer, she was very headstrong and her over-confidence meant she struggled with listening to the advice or suggestions of others. Though she has become better about this over the years, she still fights against her old patterns. If she isn't careful to control them, her emotions can be extreme and can offend others. When she was younger, she was also a great deal more irresponsible and her lack of planning would get her into difficult situations. With age has come wisdom and though she is still lively and easily excited, she's much better able to restrain herself.
