Liana was born into a rather typical family on Betazed. Her parents were doting, and, though her mother was often busy, both parents made the time to spend with her. Her life was normal (schooling, occasional playtime, etc.) up until the Dominion War, when, in 2374, Betazed was invaded by the Dominion. Although her family managed to escape and hide, the experience had a profound effect on the 12-year-old Liana. She was placed in charge of one of the groups of younger children in their emergency shelter in the Loneel Mountains, and was taught some basic first-aid techniques. That was her first interest in medicine, an interest that continued to grow and develop all her life. When Starfleet came to help liberate her planet, she was taken up aboard one of the starships (though she can't remember which one) and was fascinated by everything, but especially the medical facilities. She was determined right then and there to join Starfleet and become a doctor.
During the next few years she went out and got first aid training, and managed to combine her regular coursework with extra science and even a few medical classes. Upon completion of her secondary education stage, Liana applied for and got accepted to Starfleet Academy, where she naturally decided to major in the medical field. The Academy was a new experience for her, as it was more rigorous and more involved. Although she had to work to maintain her standing (though she was fairly good, she wasn't near the top of the class), she thoroughly enjoyed every minute of her time at the Academy. Upon graduation, she continued her medical studies with a residency for one year at Starfleet Medical, with another year spent at the Central Hospital of Altair IV.
