Does not enjoy eating and feels it is an overrated pastime.

History

Personal History
Etrara was born on Risa following an affair her mother had with a minor Klingon attaché J’Rekall Mok of the House of Duras. As soon as her mother told him she was pregnant he disappeared completely. 9 months after, Etrara was born. Her mother returned to Earth to live with her mother. As she grew her mother implanted in her daughter hatred for her Klingon heritage. She had a difficult childhood suffering bullying because of the way she looked. She left school and began to be taught at home where she excelled in all subjects. When she was 16 she found her mother dead, she had committed suicide. Etrara made a vow to find her father one day and make him pay for what he did to her mother.

. Her grandmother continued to look after her. At the age of 17 she began volunteering in hospital and quickly decided to become a doctor to that end she began to look towards Starfleet and spent many hours watching the cadets come and go in their smart uniforms. When she was 18 a male cadet asked her if she would like to see him. On their first date they went to the beach at night to look at the stars. There he raped and brutalised her abusing her verbally regarding her looks and her heritage. At the time she thought he would kill her and decided that it would never happen again. To this end she began to learn martial arts and honed her body in the gym. The rape increased her fear of men and poor self image which continues to this day. She is unable to have children because of the rape.

As she got older she realised she was also attracted to women and had a brief affair with a female Andorian cadet Irania Jader. Irania was unfortunately killed in a piloting accident. At age 18 she applied for and was accepted to Starfleet Medical Academy despite her grandmother’s pleas not to do so. Her Academy medical days were unremarkable but she showed great aptitude with emergency medicine and research into virology. She also loved weapons of all kinds, and piloting all craft she tried. Her physical fitness made it easy to beat most of her male and female counterparts.
Following graduation she went on to obtain extant degrees in Emergent Medicine and virology from Starfleet Medical Outreach Harvard.
