- Note: T'Lea is pronounced, T'Lee.
- Childhood: (On Starfleet File)
As a child T’Lea traveled extensively with her uncle, Zadok, to various archeology expeditions across the galaxy. She was exposed to many cultures, languages, and sometimes certain behaviors that young children should never witness. For these reasons, Zadok had T’Lea’s tutors put an extra effort into making her study and practice the Vulcan teachings of Surak. T’Lea hated every second of her lessons and often went out of her way to provoke emotion from her ridged and strict teachers, as well as her guardian. Early on, Zadok learned that there would be no taming T’Lea’s mischievous, rebellious Romulan side, but he would never stop trying.
(All that is summarized on her Starfleet File is that she attended the Vulcan Science Academy.)
As T’Lea reached maturity she found herself growing more independent, angry and more defiant of everything Vulcan. During the exclusive excavation of an ancient civilization on N’Dallis Prime, located in the Bogon system, T’Lea left the unpredictable sandstorms of the desert dig-site and sought refuge in the inner city. She quickly found her place as the Alpha Female in a notorious and deadly gang. For four long years she carved out her reputation as the most lethal, heartless, and cunning ruler of the streets -- earning the name, The Butcheress of N'Dallis Prime -- and along side her mate Dragus, Alpha Male of the gang, their empire was quick to threaten established enemy territories. Soon opposition fell at the duo’s bloodstained hands, but T’Lea’s lust for power, and the inherent legacy left behind by her mother, once again lead to the ultimate betrayal. Seeking a higher social status, T’Lea conspired to have her mate, Dragus, murdered in exchange for a privileged political rank. The sinister plan went awry. She not only saw to the destruction of her mate, but successfully destroyed herself as well.
Fleeing the city a broken and shattered mess with a Warrant for Vengeance on her head, T’Lea returned to her guardian Zadok, hoping that he would get her off the planet before the Sentinels and/or Bounty Hunters found her. With T'Lea in a comatose state, Zadok fled the Bogon System and arrived on a remote, illegal medical science facility, where he enlisted the expertise of an Ullian to rewrite T’Lea’s memories -- making her docile, peaceful, and logical. With a new Vulcan foundation in place, T’Lea’s violent memories were tamed, and she was completely unaware of the involuntary memory reprogamming she’d suffered. As far T’Lea was concerned, she gave up her brutal past and found sanctuary in the teachings of Surak. Under these false pretences T’Lea studied at the Vulcan Science Academy, and later joined Starfleet. Although she still struggled with her suppressed Romulan side, she managed to work her way through training with logic and Vulcan integrity.
Over time the memory reconstruction procedure slowly started to deteriorate. During the Ambrosia mission, Ethereal creatures finally broke down the memory barriers and revealed the truth about T’Lea’s past. The shocking revelation thrust T’Lea’s Romulan side to the forefront once again, and forced her false Vulcan half into a deep meditative state. T’Lea is now ruled by her manipulative Romulan heritage and the intense drive to find her estranged mother.
- Expedition 1.0: (Not on Starfleet File)
While trying to uncover the mystery behind an Iconian Artifact, Lt. Cmdr. T’Lea and 1st Lt. Dade Adarnis were kidnapped by N’Dallis Prime bounty hunters and taken back to fulfill a warrant for T’Lea’s arrest. After enduring two days of torture for her crimes, a Romulan Tal Shiar agent, named Tomal, who had arranged the kidnapping in the first place, also arranged for their escape. The premise behind this deal was that T’Lea would lead him to her Uncle’s old dig site where they would find the last clue to the Iconian Artifact. It was discovered that the Iconians built a gateway here and the artifact was a power source. Upon opening the gateway a backlash of cataclysmic events began and it was necessary to destroy it. (See: Broken Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6)
- Black Ops.:
(The following information is available on her record) After a failed career change with Starfleet Intelligence, T'Lea found herself in a prison for a few months for breaking the Director of SFI's nose. With a demotion she was returned to service as a Lieutenant and the Historian/Archaeological Specialist of the USS Constitution-B. (The following information is Classified and not on her record: Torture) But all was not well with the Romu-vulc. Enduring months of mental and physical torture at the hands of her mother, and the corrupt Black Ops. Director, T'Lea teetered on the brink of insanity when she was released back to duty. Black Ops. wanted information about the Iconian Gateways, but it was protected by a telepath-inhibitor chip, which T'Lea implanted in her own brain. With the help of Counselor Della Vetri, the Romu-vulc has made a full recovery in her mental health.
Shortly after her return to active duty, the T-inhibitor chip in T’Lea’s brain started to rapidly degrade. A secret surgery with Commander Toni Turner operating was arranged. Unable to face her own demise, T’Lea approached Counselor Vetri about hosting her Katra (See: Katra Part 1, Part 2) while the delicate medical procedure was performed. After much consideration Della agreed to the request and soon the Trill was not only playing host to several past lives, but one shady Romu-vulc as well. During their time together Della and T'Lea became extremely close, learning intimate details about each other and their past, but with the operation a success, and T’Lea in perfect health, her Katra was soon returned to her own body.
SFI is still in pursuit of the Iconian Gateways. First contact from a powerful alien species beyond one of those gateways has warned that if a gateway was reactivated, a devastating war would consume multiple galaxies, and entire worlds would perish.
- SFI and the “Gateway Project”:
(Current Storyline) Having helped bring down the corruption within Black Ops., Raivus has been entrusted with valuable information and resources gathered by the rogue agency. She has been granted a leadership role to help oversee the top secret “Gateway Project”. While she is not in complete control of the project, big decisions belong to the Director of SFI, Raivus’s knowledge of the Iconian gateways, and her outside contacts have provided the project with beneficial resources to prosper the project’s goals.
One of Raivus’s valuable contacts just happens to be her own daughter, T’Lea. No longer under the corrupt command of Black Ops., Raivus genuinely hopes to reconcile the broken relationship with her daughter. Or perhaps she’s simply using her daughter to get what she wants. ((See: Digging Up The Past, Part 1- Digging Up The Past, Part 2))
- Relationships Past and Present
- Dragus: A N’Dallis Prime native. He was the leader of a notorious gang, and T’Lea’s first bond-mate. Perhaps she loved him, or perhaps she was simply curious about the emotion. At the time, she was still very young and very savage. Everything she did was out of pure selfishness. She used her relationship with Dragus to control him, and the gang from behind the scenes, until she conspired to have him killed for her own lust of power.
- Tash Zubowskivich: Long time BFF’s from their days at the academy. T’Lea had never thought of Tash romantically, even though she suspected he had deeper feelings for her. It wasn’t until years later during a camping trip, and a healthy dose of alcoholic wild berries, that they hooked-up for a one night stand, the consequences of which almost destroyed their friendship. They’ve since cleared the air and remain close friends.
- Captain Della Vetri: Previously married to and Bonded with Vetri. ((See: Pon Farr "Union" Sim )) The relationship ended in an amicable separation.
- Dade Adarnis: A stubborn and handsome Marine. Their relationship was passionate, rocky, fiery, and sometimes violent, but always loyal. He won the cold heart of the Romu-vulc almost instantly with his brash, and annoying behavior, but when she finally confessed her love for him, he walked away from the relationship in order to, "keep her safe". Recently, after crossing paths on an expedition with a Marine contingent the two have briefly reconnected romantically, but are uncommitted to a serious relationship.
- Rune Jolara: Frien-emies. The two have a contentious friendship. Even though neither would admit it, deep down they are friends.
- Karise Indobri: A relationship forged through the hardship of a kidnapping, and multiple holodeck outings. T'Lea considers Karise to be a trusted friend though at one time it may have had the potential to become more.
- John Kendrick: Assisted in her most recent Pon Farr. Any further relationship development is currently in question...
- Memorable Moments
T'Lea is on the hunt for her nemesis, Dal Selta, when the tables turn against her. She and Karise Indobri are kidnapped!
T'Lea tries to postpone Pon Farr through questionable means:
Using Pon Farr as a weapon, T'Lea faces off with Dal Selta, only things do not go according to plan.
