Ren is a host to the Trill symbiote Quartz. She is the Trill's second host body and has had Quartz in her body for the last 5 years so is accustomed to the experience. Her previous host, Bakra was a keen amateur Xenobiologist and a professional pilot so this allows Ren access to some of his previous skills. Bakra tended to live wildly in his younger days and liked to gamble, fight and drink. He matured in later years and married his wife Drena and had two sons and a daughter. Ren does sometimes miss the family life which Bakra enjoyed in his life.
Ren is talented academically having graduated early in Neuroscience with Artifical Intelligence and showing academic excellence in this area. This helped her to be given Quartz by passing the Trill Symbiosis Commission. She found the selection difficult and tends to be wary of medical examinations since this encounter. She then went to the Academy and studied Applied Mathematics.
Notes- Whilst Ren normally pushes herself hard and having a no nonsense approach and was prone to finding perceived faults in others at a younger age, having the more mature Trill inside her has helped calm her down a touch. This has enabled her to maintain a fairly good natured approach, but under stress her original tendency to snap does sometimes come to the fore. This sometimes caused her issues with her contemparies at the Academy.
The most notable thing about the Ren is her different use of smiles, ranging between a genuine grin to one which has been discribed as being akin to 'the grin of a Grishnar cat in it's prime about to attack'.
Ren has also started to take on some of Bakra Quartz's more annoying habits, such as talking to herself which he developed in later years. This causes Ren some mild irritation.
