She is a capable, flexible and confident, with a dark sense of humor. She is observant, and has a strong sense of justice and wants to help people.
Sindrana is still dealing with a number of issues stemming primarily from her long stay among the Romulans, having to stay alive by her own wits and guile.
When she left for Romulus she was a psychiatrist who had been trained in spycraft, but when she first returned she was more Intelligence Operative than anything else. Over the past several years she has attempted to go back to her roots, trying to recapture her former personality and equanimity of life. While she has made some headway she still tends to rely too much on her own skills, had difficulty trusting, paranoid and who still wakes up at night in cold sweats thinking about the things she has been party to. For the most part, she has gotten this under control, but stressful situations that cut too close to her old ways in the Tal-Shiar or that impact her more directly in these areas can exacerbate these things resulting in higher levels of independence and paranoia which can result in erratic behavior.
Born to a Vulcan deep cover spy (T’Laia) and Romulan military doctor (Garavan) during the days of Romulan isolation. The first decade of Sindrana’s life was spent in relative peace until two things happened at nearly the same time. The first was that her mother was almost killed in a shuttle accident, the results of which led to the second: The revelation that T’Laia had married a Romulan and given birth to Sindrana. T’Laia was subsequently given the command to pull out. However she would only do so with her husband and child, and so with great difficulty, Sindrana and her parents were all smuggled out of Romulan territory and settled on Vulcan.
Sindrana spent the rest of her childhood and young adulthood on Vulcan, learning to adapt to the Vulcan culture and their dispassionate view of life. She was largely successful. During her school years, Sindrana consistently did well at things dealing with direct personal contact or that dealt with living things in general. So she excelled at things like biology, psychology, sociology, but at the same time struggled with higher mathematics, physics, and other more theoretical or abstract science. Taking excellence courses to prepare her for college courses she took on Neuroscience which challenged her. but it was this knowledge that really helped her when she made the choice to go to medical school and worked towards a psychology major.
Her Thesis paper for her psychological studies was WEAPONIZING THE MIND. She had done a lot of work with analyzing the mind and how psychology related to psionics, especially in races that were already predisposed to it. She had started off with Vulcans and Betazoids, but then branched out into other telepathic species, some of which were Vulcanian subgroups . . to include the Romulans. After two years of work her doctoral thesis was rejected. She was never given a reason why . . at least not then. Only that she had to come of with something else. Sindrana's her second project: PHARMACEUTICAL PSYCHOLOGY studied the growing prevalence and the danger of using new age drugs to heal, not only minds dealing with trauma but also minds that had been broken through psionic mishap. She saw it as a way to merge her pre-med biochemistry with psychology and some of the psionic studies she found so fascinating. There was no mentions of Romulans or their subgroups. Sindrana felt that it was not as good as her first. But to her surprise it was accepted. Weeks later a David Emmerson Bauers had arrived at her door with her paper on 'Weaponizing the Mind' in hand and she was recruited into the intelligence agency. She was told that is was due to her telepathic talent, but it was quickly apparent that it was also for her telepathic research into the Roumlans. So it was that Sindrana had just finished most of her medical and psychological course work and now she was also being trained as a highly proficient intelligence agent, with specialties in: Infiltration, Intelligence and Telepathic Defense Training on Vulcan and Betazed.
NOTE: References to Intelligence and her time in Romulan territory have been redacted, save for those with high enough clearance to see it. IE: Captain and perhaps their first officers
Eventually, she was smuggled to Romulus and she became a deep cover agent, sending back encrypted messages as she slowly worked her way into the Tal-shiar.
In 2387 when the Hobus Supernova rocked the Romulan Empire, she lost contact with her Federation handlers and she was presumed to be dead. However Sindrana survived, but It would be another 24 months before she would resurface again as the Tal Shiar began to recover and reassert its authority not only at home but also abroad. Around that time reports of an A’hiana (Black Serpent) began to appear, it was Sindrana’s code name. It took nearly a year for the federation to realize that it was actually her and to pull her out. During all that time with the Romulan empire in disarray, and cut her off from any outside help, Sindranna had fled far undercover, using any contacts she had to maintain her identity and survive! She had already become part of the secret police, interrogating suspects and stopping anyone who was against the empire. However with no help or resources keeping this role forced her to make many choices that left her uncomfortable, even dirty. While she strove for justice, and law, Romulan law was often swift and brutal, and the compromises she made and actions she had to take in an effort to stop the guilty and protect the innocent still wake her up at night.
Upon returning to Vulcan she was debriefed, counseled and examined. She was eventually absolved of any crimes committed while undercover and she was assigned to a Vulcan ship as a medical officer to reintegrate her once again. Over time she was assigned medical and mental patients again. At the same time, she continued with her psychology courses, gaining a doctorate in Psychology, specializing in Adaptive Exopsychology. The goal, to try and put Romulan behind her.
She has been only partially successful.
NOTE: She is considered on indefinite leave from the SFI. (IE: For as long as she is on Darwin) Which is fine with her.
- Martial Arts: Sindrana grew up training with her father and it was an important way of bonding with him in as a young woman. As an adult she has ventured into the ancient Vulcan and even some of the Klingon styles. She found the ones she learned in service to the Federation serviceable but lacking in either finesses or aggressiveness.
- Games: She enjoys a wide variety of games from chess to card games like poker and even spades. She prefers games which allow her to interact and play against people as oppose to ones that are ones of pure chance or against a computer or an uninvolved 'dealer'. However she has developed an interest in darts.
- Outdoors Activities: She also enjoys a great many physical activities from hiking, wilderness treks, mountain climbing, the more challenging the better. She actually went through the ritual of Tal'oth before she entered Starfleet and did something similar before she accepted her transfer to the delta quadrant.
Education and Certifications
Medical training: Sindrana is a psychiatrist. As such she is a physician who specializes in psychiatry. She is trained to diagnose, prevent, study, and treat disorders. She has been taught to evaluate patients to determine whether their symptoms are the result of a physical illness, a combination of physical and mental ailments, or strictly psychiatric. Although her time with the Tal-Shiar twisted her skills horribly, they are still intact. Her pre-med training was in neuroscience focusing on the study of the structure and function of the nervous system and brain, and how body chemistry and drugs affect the brain and cognitive functions. She went on to get her medical degree in psychiatry. During her recovery, she received specialized training in in Adaptive Exopsychology, which is the study new races and understand their culture and psychology.
Psionics: She is a T3 touch telepath and trained in psionic defenses, it is very difficult to read her mind accurately. (IE: If she is playing the role of a damsel in distress, it would be difficult for a telepath to see otherwise. Although it does require some preparation before hand.)
Combat: She has standard training in Starfleet, Romulan and Klingon hand and beam weapons.
Intel: As a member of Starfleet Intelligence and later in the Romulan version of it. She is trained in surveillance, information-gathering (passive, active, and "forced") and intelligence/counter-intelligence. She is skilled in various interrogation techniques, many of which were drawn from her psychological training. She is very good at ‘getting in someone’s head’.
Her personal combat skills are excellent but do not translate well into starship combat. She can fly shuttle well enough to get from point A to point B, but she could never be called an ace pilot. And she was marginally passable in dog fighting styles of combat, but the biggest complaint her instructors had was that she ended up being more of a 2D thinker and she succeeded only by ‘out thinking’ or 'psyching out' her opponent rather than out flying. And as difficult as that was for her, flying and fighting in the larger ships where she cannot see anything except through a monitor or, worse yet, a sensor screen, were a significant challenge for her. "Too much between her and the other person." Also she is good at the intelligence side of things and can operate the machinery with an adequate amount of skill, fixing things that are more electronic in nature or that require more than basic computer knowledge are a challenge for her. She is capable of utilizing many different types of devices to fulfill her duties fixing or doing extensive modifications is a whole different matter.
