Ensign Tiria Hamasaki
"That though prudence, intrepidity, and perseverance united are not exempted from the blows of adverse fortune, yet in a long series of transactions they usually rise superior to its power, and in the end rarely fail of proving successful."
— Admiral of the Fleet George Anson, 1st Baron Anson, PC, FRS

Tiria is a short woman, with black hair to her shoulders and green eyes - although her angular face bears all the hallmarks of someone from the Japanese nation of Earth. A quiet woman, Tiria can often be found reading or doing some exercises off shift - she's often said it helped her think through problems.

Personality wise, she's developed a wry sense of humor and often is far more practically minded than elsewise, a product of growing up on Havley's Hope. Part of her is glad she gets to explore, although so far it's been home, and a remote sector of the Federation.


Born on Havley's Hope to her father, Minaki Hamasaki, a colonial botanist, and Amelia Hamasaki, an administrator with the colony, Tiria had a fairly normal childhood, if biased towards the type of learning useful on remote worlds. Her older sister, who was much more physically based was one of her closest friends.

As she became an adult, her sister, fed up with the very quiet and limited life the colony provided and left for other parts. While the Shoals had flourished during the Dominion War, it was still a remote region of the Federation. When her sister left to see the wider galaxy, she never mentioned that she worked for than a security consultant and traveled regularly. With the frequent contact, Tiria picked up the urge to see the wider galaxy. The Shoals were not precisely an area one wanted to explore, and while her parents tried to argue her out of it, she was determined to see the galaxy.

Granted, they did talk her out of Starfleet, as her parents had a distrust of them and most Federation-wide organizations. Still, they supported her choice to join Federation Security as it was a relatively more safe vocation, would let her travel, but was law-enforcement. Her parents were also secretly convinced that she would quit and maybe join the Colonial Coalition Marshals.

Tiria joined Federation Security on 238804.01 and enjoyed her job, but found rapidly that she didn't get to see all that much, even assigned to one of the roving teams that were used in some remote sectors of the Federation. That said.. it only took her a year to realize this wasn't the job for her, as much as she worked diligently to perform her duty. While she tried for nearly another two years, she wasn't able to ignite that spark, and resigned in early 2391 to join Starfleet Academy.

While she was older than a lot of the other cadets, she enjoyed her years at the Academy. And it was interesting seeing a core-world perspective, as many of her jaunts as Federation Security had taken her to the fringes of Federation space. Still, she deliberately made sure to go into the piloting track, as she thought she'd enjoy it more.
