History, Education and Skills

Family and Background

:

Bree was raised in a cultural backwater on Earth, founded by an ancient paramilitary fundamentalist religious organization. Both her parents met with an untimely death while she was still an infant, and her human father’s parents took her in. They were kind enough, but they had always disliked and feared their son’s Betazoid wife. They were fearful that their little granddaughter would turn out to be one of those weird, spooky mind-readers too, so they “sheltered” her by hiding the truth of her ancestry. They told Bree that her mother was a witch who had used dark arts to lure her father away from them. Of course, it was partly his fault, too; if he hadn’t insisted on gallivanting off with Star Fleet to who knows where, he would never have gotten mixed up with all those foreigners and aliens, and he’d probably be safe at home, minding his own business. They didn’t know where they failed with him; but they were determined to make sure that their Bree would make up for all the waywardness of her father, and fulfill their hopes and dreams where he had failed. Bree did her best to oblige, but she always felt…different. At the age of 15, she was pledged to be married to a “nice” boy, as was the local custom. But as she stood at the alter beside him, the full force of his intentions toward her hit her like a tidal wave. She ran away in horror. She could not go back. She had disgraced her family. So, she traveled to the Big City. There, she received the education of a young runaway, but she was strong; she survived. Her natural intelligence and academic aptitude enabled her, through pure stubbornness and determination, to rise above life on the streets and educate herself in more constructive manner. She found all the “foreigners and aliens” she met there more fascinating than frightening, and so set out to study their cultures. It was during this time that she met her first Betazoid; a covert recruiter from the 52nd who immediately recognized her for what she was. Through this woman’s mentorship, Bree managed not only to finish her Master’s degree, but to discover the truth about her parentage; and she began to develop her gift of empathy. She signed up to enter the academy the day after she graduated.

Education

:

Harvard, or it's current-time Earth equivalent; Master's in Xenoanthropolgy; Starfleet Academy

Pre-Starfleet History

:

Bree has never been off planet before joining the Academy; but she has seen a thing or two about how many kinds of sentient beings behave and interact. She has worked as a hooker, a maid, a librarian, a nanny, as a food service associate, as a receptionist at a hotel, and other odd jobs common to students who must work their way through school. Brianna has long displayed an intuitive grasp of computer operations. Her “creative” use of software was well known amongst her associates at Harvard. Before her entry into Star Fleet Academy, it was rumored that she was in possession of knowledge for which she did not technically have clearance.

Starfleet History

:

Brianna has had extensive training in ship's computer systems and operations, with an emphasis on programming and software. She has also had First Contact training .

Medical History

:

Healthy as a horse (due partially to her early talents with unarmed self-defense).

Skills

:

Bree's greatest strength is her excellent education in the cultural structures on many planets, coupled with her intelligence, her empathy, and her capacity to be tough as nails at need. In short; she works very well with all kinds of sentient creatures. Due to her upbringing, she has a greater than average familiarity with the ancient Judeo-Christian cannon, the Bible. She is also facile with many types of martial arts, both armed and unarmed.

Other Information

Hobbies

:

Bree is particularly fascinated with the ancient Celts, her father's ancestors. She studies them as a hobby, including fighting with broadsword and shield. On Earth, she discovered re-enactors of that period who taught her the art; it's quite practical, as the skills there employed transfer nicely to any stick she can grab and an old-fashioned trash-can lid, at need. She also sings, and does fine needlework.
