Vaala was born on Khitomer in Klingon space to parents who had already produced one great Klingon warrior, Inande the Imortal Slayer of Time and Space, who had fought at practically every battle the Empire had been involved in. Inande had survived the great attack on Deep Space Nine, she had bombed Cardassia from orbit, she had fought the Dominion and earned herself untold glory.
Her little sister, however, sadly didn't live up to her sister's example. Painfully shy, almost paranormally clumsy and very self-conscious, Vaala is probably the only Klingon in the entire history of the galaxy to be defeated in honourable combat... by a Tribble. It turns out she is terribly allergic to the creatures and develops anaphylaxis when exposed to their fur. She has a host of other allergies too.
Disowned by her parents but determined to make something of herself, Vaala enlisted in Starfleet academy with the aim of being a counselor.
It's been a bit of a struggle to get this far, but she's determined to graduate...
