Character Profile - Astrja Kyan
Place of Origin: Andor
Short for an Anorian and slim with a gymnast’s build, she moves with languid grace, some might find sensuous. She usually wearer her hair loose, but will braid it for certain types of work. Her uniform is always clean but somehow, always seems a bit askew. On duty, she wears a satchel of tools and other useful things over one shoulder and she always has a tricorder and datapad close to hand.
Astrja is a happy-go-lucky sort, nothing can keep her down. She works hard and plays hard, but when work is done, it is time to play. In the Academy, her teachers criticized her for doing the bare minimum to get by, but then she was also taking a class load for both Operations and Tactical, not deciding to go all in on Ops until her last year.
From a family with traditional ties to Starfleet, she was always encouraged to join and Astrja did her best, but, it never seemed to be quite enough. It was only due to a set of strange circumstances that she made it into the Academy as the seventh (!) alternate candidate from Andor.
Strengths & Weaknesses
Astrja has a highly flexible and creative mind which is very good at solving problems and a natural aptitude for technology. For someone in a technology-oriented field, she is also quite good with people, seeming to have a knack for connecting with people.
She is also, for lack of a better term, lucky. Things just seem to fall in place for Astrja more than can be explained by coincidence.
However, she is not exceptionally good at seeking out work, she tends to be more reactive and sorts out things as needed rather than anticipating them. Again, something she was criticized for in the Academy.
Astrja has still not really decided what she wants to do besides staying with Starfleet, she loves seeing new worlds, meeting new people and making connections with them, and seeing the wonders of the Universe.
