History, Education and Skills
Family and Background :

Born on the USS Devonshire, where her father worked as a counsellor and her mother as a science officer, Aya spent her early years on the ship with her parents. She has an older brother and a younger sister. Her brother is a science officer, and her sister is a doctor, both serving on Starflleet vessels.



Educated first in the school on board the Devonshire, and then she and her siblings spent most of their secondary years at a school on Betazed, living with their grandparents on their father's side, since her parents felt she and her siblings should learn something of their father's culture. Aya went to the prestigious University of Khabul on earth, this time living with her mother's family and learning of their culture, where she studied Psychology.

General Notes


Aya can be a little shy at first in social situations, but once she gets to know you, she is opens out and gets on well with most people.

Awards :

Admiral Bell threw her arms around the Ensign, "You don't have to be scared anymore, you don't have to be guilty anymore, you are not responsible for what that madman did to you.", she said to her quietly and for a moment longer, releasing her from the embrace. "It's going to take time, its going to be a toll... I will be right here, and I am not going anywhere."
