Personal History

Tyan Ai has always felt a bit of a conflict within her. Her father was a member of the Bajoran Provisional Government, who was stationed in Jalanda City as part of a diplomatic corps. Her mother had come to Bajor as part of a group of artisans who had decided to come to the planet to help restore beloved works of art. But she had also come to Bajor in a way to escape her family on Betazed. While Galenwe loved her family very much, she sometimes felt that they were intruding on her sense of self, a danger one always risked when born into one of the 12 Great Houses of Betazed. Galenwe was slightly more introverted than the rest of her family, and had chosen to be an artist in a family whose name and claim to fame was their long and historic diplomatic service.

Ai had a healthy respect for her parents somewhat "avant garde" lifestyle. Her father was never a man of great faith in the Prophets, and her mother had a sense of spirituality that was brought from her Betazoid heritage, so Ai learned to ask questions, was encouraged to seek her own truth, and follow paths she chose to follow, not ones that might be designated as "for" her due to her heritage. In school, she was an average student - she enjoyed history, (a subject her father began to teach shortly after her birth), hated math, and decided early on that if she absolutely HAD to write, she could do it. Her favorite past time while growing up became the study of martial arts. She became a compulsive collector and practitioner of several different styles of martial arts from several different planets - Earth, Vulcan, Klingon, and Bajoran. She began to favor ju-jitsu, hapkido and taekwondo, all from Earth, and became quite proficient in sword play as well.

Ai enjoyed reading, and her father used to tell her she had a mind like a detective - she always looked at problems from several angles before coming up with a solution that worked. When it came time for her to decide what she wanted to do after her schooling on Bajor was finished, Ai decided to explore the possibilities that Starfleet afforded her. She passed her admission exam on the second try, and earned quite the reputation for being the first one to charge into a situation fearlessly. She was also a member of a fight team outside of the Academy, at a private marital arts school she had decided to study at during her off hours in San Francisco. Her sa ba nim, Grand Master Oak Hung Park, quickly took a liking to her and trained her harder than most of his other students.
