Pre-Service Biography

Ira was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, to Nicolaj and Katja Skovgaard. She was an only child, keeping mostly to herself after finding difficulty in connecting with her peers due to a quickly developing maturity. Her parents were both scientists, spending most of their times in the lab and developing Ira’s already high intelligence. When Ira was twelve years old, her family moved to San Diego, California to continue expanding their careers. As Ira grew older she discovered an ability to read others and gain the upper hand in most situations. She was not a particularly evil or manipulative girl, just found strength in understanding human behavior to protect herself from bad situations.

When Ira was 15 years old, her parents both died in a lab explosion, leaving the young woman to live and survive on her own. She turned to reading to continue her self-education and keep herself company during her loneliest nights. While Ira was in school focusing on her studies in psychology and human behavior, she was contacted by an Intelligence Recruiter from Starfleet after being discovered due to test scores that were well above her peers. Her lonely lifestyle was perfect for intelligence and spy work since she would be sent away on undercover assignments multiple times a year. Ira joined Starfleet Academy when she was 16 and graduated in the top 5% of her class after four years. After her graduation she was sent to Intelligence School where she learned and excelled in her courses and was well respected by many of her instructors.
