==Manner==
+
===Relationships===
* '''Quarters''':
+
* '''Marital Status''': Married - D'nai Avatar
** '''Living Room''': The walls of Jelandra's quarters are very elaborately decorated with paintings and tapestries in deep, rich colours - purples, reds, dark oranges, and all things twixt and twain. Her carpet, in stark contrast, is very light cornflower blue. Her living room has a small sofa, and an antique wooden 'table and chairs' set, upon which she keeps her portable terminal, and framed pictures of her friends and family. Aside from these, the only notable furnishing is a box-chest wherein she stores a hardcopy of the LAURA Project personality files. On her window wall are, carefully mounted, her multiple degree certificates.
+
* '''Past Girlfriends''':  
** '''Bedroom''': Her bedroom contains a small prayer-temple to the gods of her House, and a large Ars Nouveau interpretation of the Great Fire, painted in oils, hangs directly above her bed. The small coffee table herein is normally overflowing with padds outlining the latest publications in her fields of interest: stellar phenomenology, hologramatics and psychology. Her viola hangs from a custom-mount in the wall, and a rack of sheet-music and a music stand are located within arms' reach of a small wooden chair on which she sits to practise.
+
** Cadet Kelinda Darr
* '''Favorite Room''': Probably the library in her estate back on Betazed.
+
** Major/Lt. Colonel [[Stryker, Mellina|M. Stryker]]
* '''Mannerisms''': Jelandra is what one might call a strange fish. When in a settled state of mind, she is thoroughly pleasent and very mindful of etiquette; she is soft-spoken by nature, but a powerful public speaker when the situation demands it. If she is unsettled, however - something which occurs with a disturbingly increased frequency - she has been known to fly off the handle for no apparent reason. She frets over this tendancy which in turn only serves to unsettle her more; as a result, whenever in a 'delicate' situation she is doubly careful with her temperament. When discussing her people, she is often melancholy; she has a developed a habit of talking about the Betazoid race as one might talk about a dying friend.
+
** Lieutenant Commander Jenelle Vaughan
* '''Physical Limitations''': Jelandra suffers from an extreme variant of hypertension; any protracted physical (or telepathic) exertion has the potential to cause her to lapse into dizziness; in particularly stressful cases, she has been known to lose consciousness. She is still capable of partaking in her favourite form of exercise, blade-dancing, but only for short periods and only if she has taken her medication.
 
* '''Temperament''': Generally, Jelandra is as cool as a cucumber in any social situation. She has a natural knack, as a function of her telepathic traits, of appearing to be all things to all people by subconsciously tailoring her conversations with them based on what she instinctively senses pleases them. She does, however, have an unreasonably angry streak, which has been evidenced on several occasions.
 
* '''Habits''': Chews her fingernails; bites her bottom lip when concentrating; finishes other people's sentences.
 
* '''Religion/Spiritual Devotion''': Jelandra observes an unorthodox denomination, taken from the basic Betazoid religious structure. She offers up prayer to most deities within the modern pantheon, but also occasionally prays to the long-abandoned Cyndriel religious figures.
 
 
 
 
 
==Personality==
 
Jelandra is the concept of "noblesse oblige" personified. She lives for nothing more than her duty, having long since given up on any hope of personal happiness and fulfillment, and that duty is the preservation of the Betazoid race. A daughter of the Third House, Jelandra holds to the belief that aristocratic rank is a position of servitude more than a position of authority - that her 'position' means she must carry the weight of her peoples' troubles on her shoulders.
 
 
 
For one so young, not yet a woman by the reckoning of her race, this self-imposed responsibility weighs heavily on her, giving her a melancholy disposition when in private. In public, she make a valiantly successful effort to put across the bouncy, electric personality that she possessed prior to returning to Betazed after the Occupation.
 
 
 
* '''Note''': Jelandra suffers from kakorrhaphiophobia, a severe fear of failure and defeat. This makes her seem, on some levels, thoroughly (and overly) meticulous about minute details, where those details might increase success percentages by fractions of percentiles. It also drives her to dwell over small mistakes, sometimes to the level of actual sickness and vomiting.
 
 
 
===Hobbies and Pastimes===
 
* Music
 
** Jelandra plays two instruments, viola and pianoforte. The piano is undoubtedly her first instrument, and her primary method of stress relief and relaxation.
 
** Jelandra uses her musical knowledge in a professional capacity, as a method of relaxing her patients. She believes that music is a universal language, and strives to experience music of every culture and species that the Federation has encountered.
 
* Bladedancing
 
** A traditional Betazoid sport combining their natural elegance with a functional approach to self-defence, Jelandra has practised it for over two decades. Being separated from Betazed high society, it represents her only tie to her people's penchant for graceful dance.
 
 
 
===Likes===
 
* Music
 
** Betazoid Crystal Symphonies
 
** Klingon Opera
 
** Romantic and Neo-Romantic Earth Music
 
** Andorian Ice Arias
 
* Classical Literature
 
** Betazoid Fantasy Fiction
 
** Earth 'Classics'
 
* Dance and gymnastics
 
* Chocolate
 
 
 
===Dislikes===
 
* Stupidity
 
* Dishonesty
 
* Exotic Foods
 
 
 
===Ambitions and Goals===
 
Once a very driven person, trying to carve out a place for herself in the world of scientific research, Jelandra now only has one goal: to see her people safe, and secure, before she dies. That said, there are some things she would like to see completed, mainly revolving around Project LAURA and its offshoots.
 
 
 
===Personal Achievements and Disappointments===
 
* Achievements
 
** Jelandra obtained a PhD through research in the field of Stellar Phenomenology at the age of 18. Her thesis was on the topic of Trilithium Compound Proximity Effects in K-type Stars.
 
** Her second PhD through research was in the field of Advanced Hologramatics aged 20. Her thesis was on the topic of Evolutionary Controls on Self-replicating Algorithms, focussing on application of accelerated generational refinement.
 
** Receiving a professorship at BetaRAc for her work in Hologramatics.
 
* Disappointments
 
** Losing out on the Federation's EMH Mark 2 contract to Prof. Zimmerman.
 
** Ethan Lysander. Long story.
 
** Seeing the Federation permit her homeworld to be invaded and occupied during the Dominion War.
 
 
 
==Family==
 
 
 
There is nothing more important to Jelandra than the responsibilities she feels stem from her family's authority. This does not mean she is particularly close with her family, but rather the ideal that she believes they ought to represent. Here we outline the individuals, and give some brief commentary regarding her relationships with each of them.
 
 
 
===Spouse===
 
* '''Marital Status''': Single
 
** '''Note''': Jelandra's proposed genetic partner, Daysaan Kavrel of the Seventh House, was killed during the initial defence of Betazed at the commencement of the Dominion invasion of the planet; as such, Jelandra is no longer genetically bonded. Her family has debated alternative arrangements, but no firm decisions have been made yet. Jelandra mourned the loss of Daysaan; they had been friends since childhood. Their relationship never developed beyond a close friendship.

* '''Father''':
+
* '''Father''': Kran Belar Avatar - Political Activist and Former Federation Councillor
** Jelandra's father has been an intelligencer for Starfleet for several decades, only finally reaching the stage where he is content to hold a desk post within the past two years. He is an energetic man when around friends and family, though somewhat withdrawn and secretive around others. Jelandra holds him in the highest possible regard, and loves him dearly.
+
* '''Mother''': Tel Varia Avatar - Botanist
 
 
* '''Mother''':
 
** Jelandra's mother has never really identified with her daughter. Viewing Jelandra as a "flawed" child, Jadrice has never felt any particular kinship with her. Jelandra, similarly, finds her mother's somewhat simplistic view of the universe draining and tiresome. The two only meet when absolutely necessary.
 
 
 
  
 
===Siblings===
 
===Siblings===
  
* '''Brother''':
+
* '''Brother''': Seran Cadar Avatar- Galactic Comedian
** Four years Jelandra's senior, Becknar was the big brother she never had. That is to cheapen their relationship however since despite spending much of their respective childhoods unable to spend time together, separated as they were by several hundred lightyears, they did communicate extensively. The two are particularly close, and on the rare occasions they meet in person are thoroughly inseperable.
 
  
 
==Personal History==
 
==Personal History==
: ''Full Article: [[/Personal history|Jelandra Gear's Personal History]]''
+
===Early Years===
 +
Son of a Federation Councillor, Kran Belar Avatar and a botanist, Tel Varia Avatar. Kran served for many years at the capital of the UFP but after several disagreements with Federation policy regarding the handling of the Cardassian occupation of Bajor, the alliance with the Klingon Empire, and the entrance of several worlds into the Federation, he resigned his title and returned home. While on Andor, Kran began to discover the less political aspects of life, settled down, and married a young botanist named Tel Varia and had two children.
 +
 +
===Childhood Years===
 +
Mal was always the athlete of the family and the student, but it was his brother Seran who always told the jokes, painted the pictures, and had the most friends. It was at this point that Kran began to write about his views about Andor. His mother was promoted to the head of the M'Gatta Botanical Gardens.
 +
 +
===Teen Years===
 +
As Mal continued his introverted lifestyle; his older brother began to tour the planet as a young comedian. Andor loved Seran Cadar and it would not be long before he'd be touring the Quadrant. Mal, still in the shadow of his brother felt that he needed to go off world and build himself elsewhere. Thus he applied to the Academy. Kran Belar's writings began to become more and more controversial. Shortly before Mal left for the Academy, Kran wrote his groundbreaking essay, "The Need For a Separate Andor." Kran's views on the secession from the Federation caused much trouble with his son and as a result strongly disapproved of his entrance into Star Fleet. A Homo sapiens only club declared his father.
 +
 +
===Academy Years===
 +
After not speaking to his father since the day he left for the Academy, Mal continued to grow as a person. At this point, Mal began to play an old Canadian sport known as ice hockey. Although some of his fellow cadets teased him at first, since bugs and ice don't mix. Mal got the last laugh leading the Academy team with 23 goals as well as a Galactic Title. Avatar does not speak to his father anymore, but he is in constant contact with his brother, who has had mixed results with his comedy. Apparently not everyone "gets" Andorian humor. Tel Varia continues her love of plant-life on Andor and the galaxy. Unlike her husband, she always supported Mal's decision to enter Star Fleet.
 +
 +
===Academy Record===
 +
Mal greatly underachieved his freshman and sophomore years at the Academy and was at one point in danger of failing out. He spent way too much time playing ice hockey and did not focus on his studies. It was not until his junior year that Mal began to concentrate on his studies. He began to love piloting starships as well as smaller vessels. This love of flight reinvigorated an old interest in learning and his grades soon showed this. Avatar continued to play hockey leading Star Fleet Academy to its first FCAA championship in 80 years.  His final training was the Shabtai meeting under the leadership of Commander [[Cyrce, Medai Kataryn|Medai Cyrce]].
  
Jelandra's journey thus far has had a great many twists and turns. Her path has led her from the sterile walls of the research institute of her birth to service in Starfleet, a thousand lightyears from her homeworld, via a great many junctions, stations and diversions. She is a scientist, a deeply devout follower of her people's traditions and beliefs, a natural philosopher, an aristocrat, and a slave to the perceived needs of others.
+
===The Kodiak-A===
 +
Mal's first posting out of Starfleet Academy was aboard the Dauntless Class [[USS Kodiak-A]] under the command of Fleet Captain [[Hollis Calley]].  He served as a reserve HCO and GS50 pilot. It was during this mission that Avatar first impressed Commader [[Hurne, Jordan|Jordan Hurne]] who would later select Avatar to be part of his crew aboard the [[USS Victory]].  Additionally aboard the [[USS Kodiak-A]], Avatar would develop friendships with Heath Story and Nickolas Cicero.
  
Born and educated on Betazed, she has travelled a significant portion of known space in the years since she left her world, and these experiences taught her one important lesson: that the best place for her to be was the place she had most wanted to leave. She has left that place once more, she believes for the last time, in an effort to protect the place and its people, with her life if necessary.
+
===The Victory===
 +
Avatar would serve as the Victory's first Chief Tactical Officer following the split from the Kodiak.  He would quickly rise in rank after taking over as Chief Engineer and then first officer.  Mal would become close with Megan Parker, Makal Kora, Heath Story, J. Borden Hapgood, and Robin Phoenix.  He would also develop a deep loyalty towards Captain Hurne. Late in 2380, Avatar would take a leave of absence to return to the Ilyow in the Lithron System.
  
===Timeline===
+
===The Ilyow===
# '''235701.31''': Born at BetaRAc Research Facility.
+
To the outside universe, Commander Avatar spent the day of 238009.29 with the Ilyow people. However, in terms of the memories that he gained, Avatar actually spent seven years as an ambassador to the Ilyow, helping to establish first contact with that race.

 +
===Return to the Victory===
 +
After completing his leave of absence, Commander Avatar returned to the Victory as a more mature and enlightened first officer.  He would serve a pair of missions before ultimately taking on his own command, the [[USS Columbia]].
  
==Professional History==
+
===The Columbia===
* '''Date Graduated from Academy''': 238202.21
+
The Columbia would launch in March of 2381.  This would become Avatar's command for over two years.  Following the completion of his first mission, Avatar would be promoted to captain.  Aboard the Columbia, Avatar would develop close friendships with T`Lea, Tash Zubowskivich, Kwame Alexander, Devina Franks, and C'elest Moranta. In 2383, the Columbia was nearly destroyed and had to be abandoned. After the crew managed to recover the ship, the Columbia was refit at Starbase 118 and the crew transferred to Starbase 118 Operations.
* '''Current Rank''': Lieutenant, Junior Grade
 
* '''Current Assignment''': [[USS Columbia]]
 
* '''Duty Post''': Ship's Counselor
 
  
===Awards & Commendations===
+
===Starbase 118 Operations===
 +
Captain Avatar would relieve Captain Waltas as CO of Ops in the middle of 2383 with the Columbia becoming a support vehicle.  Avatar's reign would be shortlived as he was mysteriously removed as commanding officer in 238310 without explanation.  The base would be temporarily assigned to Captain Tiberius Hannibal (NPC) before Rocar Drawoh would take over the next year.
  
None
+
===The Hidden Andorian Independence Movement and Civilian Life===
 +
Officially Captain Avatar was listed as AWOL.  In actuality he went undercover as an operative in his father's revolution to secede from the Federation.  Avatar would sacrifice his career and safety to destabilize the movement, bringing it to a close before it could begin.  Following the closure of the movement, Avatar
 +
Would take an assumed name, Skaresh Thoralev facilitated by his intel connections.  He would spend the next five years as a history and diplomatic relations professor.  During his civilian years, he would marry and have two children.  Only his wife would know of his true identity until 2389.
  
===StarFleet Assessments and Records===
+
Only after the final Andorian revolutionary was apprehended by Starfleet Security would Avatar finally begin to reclaim his original identity.  It would begin with his relationship with Cadet [[Ra-Uleyra]], one of his students.  By 238907, Avatar had reclaimed his identity and applied for re-entry as a Starfleet Officer with the rank of captain.

Jelandra has spent much of the past six years aboard starships of one form or another. She originally trained in academy to serve as a science officer, her research experience placing her in good stead for swift advancement in that field. She may well have done so, too, had she not permitted her emotions to impede rational thought. Taking a hiatus from the training program gave her the opportunity to study a different field, Counseling, from a civilian perspective. Returning to 'Fleet, she completed her examinations, taking additional modules in psychotherapy.

She has served as Counselor aboard the USS Columbia for several months, and has found her skills in that field - and in many others - tested to their limits. Without doubt, the crew are a strange mix, and that variety makes her job significantly more interesting but, at the same time, infinitely more difficult.

Personal History

Early Years

Son of a Federation Councillor, Kran Belar Avatar and a botanist, Tel Varia Avatar. Kran served for many years at the capital of the UFP but after several disagreements with Federation policy regarding the handling of the Cardassian occupation of Bajor, the alliance with the Klingon Empire, and the entrance of several worlds into the Federation, he resigned his title and returned home. While on Andor, Kran began to discover the less political aspects of life, settled down, and married a young botanist named Tel Varia and had two children.

Childhood Years

Mal was always the athlete of the family and the student, but it was his brother Seran who always told the jokes, painted the pictures, and had the most friends. It was at this point that Kran began to write about his views about Andor. His mother was promoted to the head of the M'Gatta Botanical Gardens.

Teen Years

As Mal continued his introverted lifestyle; his older brother began to tour the planet as a young comedian. Andor loved Seran Cadar and it would not be long before he'd be touring the Quadrant. Mal, still in the shadow of his brother felt that he needed to go off world and build himself elsewhere. Thus he applied to the Academy. Kran Belar's writings began to become more and more controversial. Shortly before Mal left for the Academy, Kran wrote his groundbreaking essay, "The Need For a Separate Andor." Kran's views on the secession from the Federation caused much trouble with his son and as a result strongly disapproved of his entrance into Star Fleet. A Homo sapiens only club declared his father.

Academy Years

After not speaking to his father since the day he left for the Academy, Mal continued to grow as a person. At this point, Mal began to play an old Canadian sport known as ice hockey. Although some of his fellow cadets teased him at first, since bugs and ice don't mix. Mal got the last laugh leading the Academy team with 23 goals as well as a Galactic Title. Avatar does not speak to his father anymore, but he is in constant contact with his brother, who has had mixed results with his comedy. Apparently not everyone "gets" Andorian humor. Tel Varia continues her love of plant-life on Andor and the galaxy. Unlike her husband, she always supported Mal's decision to enter Star Fleet.

Academy Record

Mal greatly underachieved his freshman and sophomore years at the Academy and was at one point in danger of failing out. He spent way too much time playing ice hockey and did not focus on his studies. It was not until his junior year that Mal began to concentrate on his studies. He began to love piloting starships as well as smaller vessels. This love of flight reinvigorated an old interest in learning and his grades soon showed this. Avatar continued to play hockey leading Star Fleet Academy to its first FCAA championship in 80 years. His final training was the Shabtai meeting under the leadership of Commander Medai Cyrce.

The Kodiak-A

Mal's first posting out of Starfleet Academy was aboard the Dauntless Class USS Kodiak-A under the command of Fleet Captain Hollis Calley. He served as a reserve HCO and GS50 pilot. It was during this mission that Avatar first impressed Commader Jordan Hurne who would later select Avatar to be part of his crew aboard the USS Victory. Additionally aboard the USS Kodiak-A, Avatar would develop friendships with Heath Story and Nickolas Cicero.

The Victory

Avatar would serve as the Victory's first Chief Tactical Officer following the split from the Kodiak. He would quickly rise in rank after taking over as Chief Engineer and then first officer. Mal would become close with Megan Parker, Makal Kora, Heath Story, J. Borden Hapgood, and Robin Phoenix. He would also develop a deep loyalty towards Captain Hurne. Late in 2380, Avatar would take a leave of absence to return to the Ilyow in the Lithron System.

The Ilyow

To the outside universe, Commander Avatar spent the day of 238009.29 with the Ilyow people. However, in terms of the memories that he gained, Avatar actually spent seven years as an ambassador to the Ilyow, helping to establish first contact with that race.

Return to the Victory

After completing his leave of absence, Commander Avatar returned to the Victory as a more mature and enlightened first officer. He would serve a pair of missions before ultimately taking on his own command, the USS Columbia.

The Columbia

The Columbia would launch in March of 2381. This would become Avatar's command for over two years. Following the completion of his first mission, Avatar would be promoted to captain. Aboard the Columbia, Avatar would develop close friendships with T`Lea, Tash Zubowskivich, Kwame Alexander, Devina Franks, and C'elest Moranta. In 2383, the Columbia was nearly destroyed and had to be abandoned. After the crew managed to recover the ship, the Columbia was refit at Starbase 118 and the crew transferred to Starbase 118 Operations.

Starbase 118 Operations

Captain Avatar would relieve Captain Waltas as CO of Ops in the middle of 2383 with the Columbia becoming a support vehicle. Avatar's reign would be shortlived as he was mysteriously removed as commanding officer in 238310 without explanation. The base would be temporarily assigned to Captain Tiberius Hannibal (NPC) before Rocar Drawoh would take over the next year.

The Hidden Andorian Independence Movement and Civilian Life

Officially Captain Avatar was listed as AWOL. In actuality he went undercover as an operative in his father's revolution to secede from the Federation. Avatar would sacrifice his career and safety to destabilize the movement, bringing it to a close before it could begin. Following the closure of the movement, Avatar Would take an assumed name, Skaresh Thoralev facilitated by his intel connections. He would spend the next five years as a history and diplomatic relations professor. During his civilian years, he would marry and have two children. Only his wife would know of his true identity until 2389.

Only after the final Andorian revolutionary was apprehended by Starfleet Security would Avatar finally begin to reclaim his original identity. It would begin with his relationship with Cadet Ra-Uleyra, one of his students. By 238907, Avatar had reclaimed his identity and applied for re-entry as a Starfleet Officer with the rank of captain.
