Commander Serala
"Duty is Honor. Honor is Life. Jolan'tru"
— Serala's Personal Motto


"The strongest tactical move is always the one in which you reap the highest gain at the lowest cost. Going out with phasers firing may seem heroic, but in the long run it is merely foolish. Retreat is often the best possible option."
— Lt Cmdr Tuvok, USS Voyager[1]


Commander Serala, a Half-Romulan/Half-Human female, is currently serving as the First Officer aboard the USS Chin'toka, NCC-97187. Serala became life-bonded to her new husband, Stevok of Vulcan, when he found her swimming in the pool of a waterfall while she was on shore leave at Lydor IX where he was working as a xenobiologist for the Daystrom Institute. Stevok had just begun his first pon farr and Serala, unaware and rebounding from a perceived unrequited love, fell for him. The next morning, when she woke up in her tent, she found the bond in place. Ever since then, Serala has developed a love for her husband that goes far beyond anything she ever imagined possible, even beyond what she felt for her previous love. However, sadly, Stevok was recently murdered by a delirious victim of a mysterious affliction. This terrible tragedy was countered by the birth of their lovely daughter, T'Saara, though Serala will always feel the loss of her husband deeply.

Background


Serala's parents met when her father, seeing R'val's discontent with the way the Imperial Government was treating the Military, began to groom her as an informant. As a Commander of a Warbird, R'Val made a great resource for Commander Davis, until they fell in love. Faced with the difficult position to defect to Romulus, or break off the relationship, Davis was about to do the unthinkable when the Tal'Shiar intervened. Realizing she was compromised, R'Val turned to her Human lover and effected her escape just in the nick of time. Davis settled his lover on Earth and soon the two were married.

A year later, Serala was born. Her parents tried to instill in her the values of both of their cultures, and for the most part they were successful. However, like her physiology, Serala was partial to her Romulan heritage. She was especially drawn to the idea of mnei'sahe, the Romulan idea of honor, and she has modified this concept to fit her mixed values.

Personality

Serala tends to be reserved outwardly due to the incessant harassment she suffered from human children when she was a child. This has caused her to be suspicious of people until she gets to know them. The greatest tragedy of her life so far has been the death of her father which left a hole in her heart that has yet to be filled.

One of Serala's strangest quirks is her tendency to slip into Romulan when stressed, but she is aware of this and monitors it to the best of her ability.

Due to her Romulan physiology and her upbringing in Bogotá, Serala has an intense dislike of the cold. A fact that is sure to cause her problems during her time in Starfleet.

Others


Toryn Raga.png

Toryn Raga
Best friend & Godfather to T'Saara

Serala's oldest friend in the fleet, Toryn Raga was at one point a romantic interest. She and Toryn never managed to take that last step, despite a mutual attraction. This ended when Serala met her now deceased husband, Stevok, and bonded with him during his pon farr. This created some tension between them, and Serala feels they never fully recovered that friendship; a fact she regrets to this day. The two of them bonded as friends over a mountain climb on a frozen world, along with Valin Dermont and Christoper Lambert, who has since left the fleet. Serala was miserable during the entire climb due to her extreme sensitivity and dislike for the cold, but despite that was pleased to have been invited along as she was the new kid on the block and feeling very much the outsider. Serala has recently asked her friend to be the godfather to her daughter, T'Saara - a responsibility he gladly accepted despite his being uncomfortable with small children.

Journs LtCmdr.png

Ishkabella Journs
Friend and Godmother to T'Saara

Having the honor of delivering Serala's baby, not to mention finally capturing the heart of her best friend, Toryn Raga, Ishka has managed to secure a spot on Serala's list of friends. While Serala is not as close to Ishka as she is to Toryn, Serala is hoping to eventually develop a closer relationship with her. Ishka has also been named T'Saara's godmother due to her relationship with Toryn, and the fact that her level of responsibility has greatly impressed the Half-Romulan.

Kiax.jpg

Esa Kiax
Chief Operations Officer, USS Chin'toka

A recent addition to Serala's list of friends, though she's not sure if Esa feels the same, Serala has taken the Trill woman into her circle after she recently went through a major heartbreak of her own that rivaled Serala's after the loss of her husband. Understanding that level of grief and needing someone who understands that she can share it with, Serala has determined to make the Trill her friend. She just hopes Esa is willing to let her in. Serala has been watching with growing approval the budding romance between the Trill woman and Master-at-Arm Chief Petty Officer Andrew Davis and hopes Esa can at last find peace after the loss of her wife.

Lt Noa.png

Noa T'Nessa Levinson
Chief Science Officer, USS Chin'toka and honorary Aunt to T'Saara

Noa Levinson won Serala's heart when she showed up one day at Serala's quarters with a remarkable gift for Serala's daughter, T'Saara. For that, Serala named her an honorary aunt to her daughter and has since begun to actively establish a friendship with the Vulcan woman.

ElizabethSnow.png

Elizabeth Snow
Chief Medical Officer, USS Chin'toka and honorary Aunt to T'Saara

Since she joined the crew, Serala had taken notice of the Betazoid woman and her skills. Fresh to the ship, Serala became instantly appreciative of the doctor's skills when she watched the woman work furiously to try and save her Captain, although he was beyond saving. And then, Serala took note of the way the woman instantly launched into a full-blown autopsy to determine the Captain's cause of death, although that investigation would yield no result. Still, Serala could only admire the woman's dedication to her job and the thoroughness with which she went about it. And then, when she showed up on Serala's doorstep with a joint gift from her and Lephi, that sealed a place in Serala's heart for her and Serala named her an honorary aunt to her daughter, along with Elizabeth's fiancee, Lephi.

Lephi.png

Lephi
Chief Engineer, USS Chin'toka and honorary Aunt to T'Saara

Just like her fiancee, Lephi sealed a place in her heart when she went together with Elizabeth to get a gift for T'Saara. This would earn the Ferengi woman the honorary status of aunt to T'Saara. But more than even this, Serala has been impressed with the Ferengi's engineering skills and is grateful to have such talent on her ship.

Logan.jpg

Kurt Logan
Security/Tactical Officer, USS Chin'toka and honorary Uncle to T'Saara

When Serala first met Kurt, he was a Marine 1st Lieutenant attached to the USS Atlantis and she was a fresh Ensign straight from the Academy and assigned to Security. He was one of the first to introduce himself to her and it was a most befuddling experience. Nevertheless, his charm won her over and despite the fact that he seems to go out of his way to confuse her with his non-sequiturs, Serala considers him to be a good friend. The fact that her daughter has taken to him and he to her cemented his place in her heart. Now if he would just get past that martyr complex of his... Unfortunately, the needs of Starfleet have dictated that Uncle Kurt be transferred to a new duty station and Little Bean will miss him terribly.
