Despite her age, Se'Lah appears to be in her early 20's. She has dark hair that is styled more like a Human than a Vulcan. Blue eyes, and a look of innocence. Don't let her appearance fool you.
Until recently, Se'Lah was a typical Vulcan. However a recent head injury robbed her of her memories of who she was, her permanent Vulcan control, and her entire past. She tends to be the shy, quiet type, and has the ability to temporarily supress her emotions at will.
Due to her training in SFI, Se'Lah tends to be instinctively paranoid of others. As a result, she is always quick to respond, when startled, or threatened.
Although Se'Lah is still trying to learn who she is, she is still aware of her duties in Starfleet. As an officer, she tends to go by the books, but has no qualms disobeying a direct order, if she believes the order to be a bad one in any given situation.
Se'Lah was born on her home planet of Vulcan 71 years ago to Da'Lan, and Vila. Her first 18 years of life were lived as a typical Vulcan child. She learned emotional control, and went to Vulcan schools to learn the ways of her people.
On her 18th birthday, Se'Lah left Vulcan and headed to Earth to join Starfleet Academy. During her time at the Academy, Se'Lah showed great skill in using weapons, and so she majored in security.
Four years later, Se'Lah graduated from Starfleet Academy in the top 100 of her class. Se'Lah spent the next 5 years serving as a security officer at the Utopia Planetia shipyards. Her career there ended when her investigation into the murder of several civilians coincided with the same investigation by members of Starfleet Intelligence.
Se'Lah was promoted to Lieutenant (jg), and offered the chance to work for Starfleet Intelligence. She immediately accepted the offer. She spent the next 6 months training for Starfleet's Special Forces. (Location Classified)
Shortly after completion of her training, Se'Lah was informed that her parents had been killed during a trip to Earth when the freighter they were traveling on had a warp core breach. She took 2 weeks of time to arrange services, and mourning for her parents, then returned to active duty.
The next 4 years were spent serving in various classified missions before she was promoted to full Lieutenant, and offered the chance to become a specialist. She chose the option to work undercover, and specifically requested to work alone.
Se'Lah spent several more months undergoing specialist training for the use of projectile weapons, bladed weapons, and undercover operations.
Upon completion of her training, Se'Lah was assigned to starbase 114 where she worked undercover posing as a mercenary for hire for the next 25 years. (Further details of this posting are classified).
After serving for so long with no time off, Se'Lah was given 2 full years of shoreleave. She spent the time on her home planet Vulcan where she met, and fell in love with S'Van.
Shortly before she left Vulcan to return to active duty, S'Van proposed marriage, which Se'Lah accepted. Though she couldn't tell him where she was going, she did make it clear that it might be some time before he saw her again.
Se'Lah returned to active duty, and was assigned to Starbase 122 where she again posed as a mercenary for hire for the next 12 years, as the only operative involved in a long, and elaborate sting operation. Without letting him know her location, or what she was doing, Se'Lah managed to keep in touch with S'Van by sending monthly transmissions.
During her time on Starbase 122, Se'Lah had been working under an assumed identity. Deep undercover, she was investigating a man named John Staunt for several things, the worst of which would be the creation, and sale of illicit narcotics, and a loose connection to a string of drug related homicides.
As she was getting close, she was faced with the unexplained abduction of a young girl that she had grown close to with no demands. Her investigation was cut short when Se'Lah managed to successfully locate the missing girl in the residential sections of Starbase 122. While attempting to rescue the child, Se'Lah had failed to notice the presence of an explosive device, which went off moments later.
Though she was not burned in the explosion, the shockwave from the blast knocked her head first into a bulkhead on the far side of the adjoining corridor. The resulting collapse took the life of the child, and the impact with the bulkhead left Se'Lah with a severe concussion.
Se'Lah spent the next two weeks in Starbase 122's medical facility where she was kept unconscious, and restrained so she could properly recover. When she awoke, Se'Lah had absolutely no memory of who she was, or anything about her past.
When Se'Lah regained consciousness, a medical report was released stating that the individual caught in the explosion, Mellissa Debou, passed away as a result of her injuries.
A few hours after waking, Se'Lah was informed of her bravery, and given a special promotion to the rank of Lieutenant Commander.
In an attempt to jog her memory, Starfleet arranged transport for S'Van to Starbase 122. Se'Lah's personality was not what S'Van had remembered. Though Se'Lah was engaged to be married to S'Van, the loss of her memories caused her to discard her relationship. She felt that she could not be with someone that she couldn't remember.
Se'Lah spent the next two weeks recovering from her injuries, and learning about her past, and what she could of her failed mission by way of her own Starfleet service records. During such time, it was discovered that Se'Lah frequently had nightmares. It is believed that her nightmares concerned her past in Starfleet Intelligence, and possibly the explosion that took her memory, but Se'Lah can never remember the dreams when she wakes from them.
One month after the explosion, special orders were received to prepare Se'Lah for shipboard transport back to Earth for debrief, and further medical evaluation. Included with those orders was a note that a special aide, briefed in full, would accompany her on her trip.
Note: Se'Lah was allowed to keep two of her projectile weapons, but her access to replicate ammunition, and the use of phasers has been temporarily revoked for safety reasons. All other weapons, including bladed weapons were confiscated under this directive.
