Position Chief Science Officer
|Physical Description||Aketh is tall like many Vulcans, with sharp and well defined features. Her face is elegant and well shaped, with full lips and almond shaped eyes. Her pupils are a bright, golden brown that match well with her dark hair and tanned complexion. She's in good shape, as expected of a Starfleet officer, and keeps herself in generally excellent health. She's notably muscular, but not overly so.
|Personality Overview||Aketh has many traits culturally important to the Vulcans. She's logical, intelligent, and cool-headed. Unlike many other Vulcans, however, she is not particularly perturbed or confused by human intensity having grown up on Earth. Some of the more insane depths of human emotion can sometimes escape her, however.
She makes a point of it to not be overly cold or distant from the rest of her crew, as she understands that it's important to be able to engage with other species and individuals. Aside from her external presentation, she is curious and has a deep interest in exploring the galaxy. She's perhaps a bit too convinced Starfleet Training and know how will carry her through that exploration.
Aside from scientific pursuits, she has a weakness for fine alcohol, other species literature, and new foods.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths:
Familiar with alien cultures
Can be confused by some emotional extremes
Textbook "Curiosity Killed the Cat" case, struggles to not press large red buttons
|Ambitions||Aketh would like to be a Captain one day, perhaps, but mostly dreams of simply charting and exploring the stars. She wants to go new places and see things no one else has ever seen.
