Viktoria Tchort was born and grew up in the village of Ustje in Russia. This village is remarkable. It is located at the far north of Russia, it’s much closer to American Alaska than to any major Russian cities. Temperatures there don’t get higher than 30-40 Fahrenheit even in the summer!
Seven hundred years ago a group of Russian people fled far away to the North in order to avoid death from the Tsar Ivan. They settled there and those still there are direct descendants.
They lived 700 years among Russian Eskimos but didn’t assimilate and saved their traditions and Russian language to this day.
Viktoria Tchort was one of the handful to leave the community over the years. Others who had left were never heard from again. The community remained steadfast in their ancient Russian ways and traditions. Those who left, did so at their own peril as they would never be accepted back for fear of muddying the ancient traditions.
Upon leaving her little village, Viktoria Tchort found her way to Moscow at the age of 16. There she came into contact, for the first time, with the technologies of the rest of the planet. She was wide eyed as she learned using these new technologies at her disposal along with her long learned traditions instilled upon her since she was a child. But she was alone, and without shelter and the necessities needed to sustain herself. But society helped provide for her and she learned as many skills as she could.
Her unique background led her directly to the Moscow offices of Starfleet and she was taken into the fold by those within who instantly noticed her unique, ancient Russian dialect that she spoke. It was a rarely heard dialect in this time and only a handful of elders remained who understood it. But it was clear the girl was very bright.
Despite being asked multiple times her origin, she refused to respond in fear those who would find out would go searching for her kin. Despite the centuries passing, her fear of the Tsar remained strong, despite that whole family line having been wiped off the face of the earth during the Bolshevik revolution for even the revolution was unknown to her peoples. Her deep rooted fears of the Aristocracy remained and confused those who questioned her.
Despite her questionable past, however, Viktoria excelled in her learning at the Academy and graduated with honors at the young age of 20. As an Ensign, she was immediately sent to San Francisco for further training where she learned Federation standard and focused on the education portion of the curriculum. It was her first time outside of Russia and she at first found it difficult to cope, but began to befriend offworlders as she herself felt as they did. A stranger in a strange land.
She left San Francisco shortly after graduating and was promoted to Lieutenant JG, and was assigned to StarBase 118 as an educator. When an opening for a full-time trainer at the StarBase portion of the Academy presented itself, Viktoria applied and was accepted for the position. A few months later, she was promoted to full Lieutenant and she remains at Starbase 118 as a full-time trainer for new Starfleet recruits.
