small frame, toned, physically stronger than she looks, great
endurance, excellent swimmer; patient and focused, sincere, bluntly
honest (though not always outspokenly so); webbed fingers and toes,
though not fully developed (see personal history for explanation)
prematurely in Arahu City, on the planet Zald (fifth planet in the
Dolium system), Loriarra had fought for her life from the moment she
came into the world. Her first three months were spent in an incubation
unit. She survived and was soon able to function without the help of
medial equipment. Many doctors told her mother that Lori seemed to have
an especially strong will to fight and persevere. Though, her lung
development had not suffered, as the doctors soon noticed when she
began to cry out loudly in the incubation unit, some things that formed
in later stages of a fetus' existence were not fully developed due to
Lori's premature birth. One particularly noticeable feature was the
underdeveloped webbing in between her fingers and toes. She also grew
up to be of smaller stature than her peers.
Nevertheless, just as
her mother had been told, Lori was a fighter. She made up for the lack
of larger webbing by adopting a technique of swimming that would suit
her smaller frame better. Soon, she distinguished herself as a hard
worker and relentless go-getter. Just as many other Zaldans, Lori was
fond of training and playing with all sorts of sea-creatures. She
volunteered during countless school breaks at the Aquatic Center, where
studies of marine animals were conducted.
All forms of water sports
were part of her everyday life, but rarely did she set foot on land,
except when taking classes in Zarillin-Dor (a form of martial arts
practice in water and on land) during her teenage years to help her
develop greater muscle strength and agility.
Then, at the end of
her last school year, her class made the journey up Mount Sanaki on
Tuonai Island, which was a treat she wouldn't soon forget. During that
excursion, Lori met a group of Cadets from Starfleet Academy, who were
on their summer vacation. First annoyed and later amused by her blunt
honesty, they invited her to come visit Earth and the Academy when she
would be finished with school. Intrigued by their stories and the mix
of cultures that they presented, Lori made her way to Earth a few
months after her graduation from formal school.
initial misgivings over her choice, her mother eventually supported her
decision, knowing that her little girl was a tough one. Though, despite
finding out that the Cadets that had invited her had done so to get a
laugh out of people's reactions to her bluntness, Loriarra never came
back from that visit, but stayed on Earth and applied to Starfleet
admitted to Starfleet Academy at the age of 17, choosing to major in
Science and minor in Security/Tactical. However, halfway through her
sophomore year, she decided to switch her goals around and make
Security/Tactical her major and Science her minor. A hard working
student, Lori kept in the top percent of her classes, despite her
trouble with adapting to the different culture. Never losing her sense
of sincerity and honesty, and her dislike for deception and
prevarications, she soon learned to keep many of her thoughts and
misgivings over people's falsehoods to herself, unless directly asked.
This precaution kept her from getting into many arguments and even
precarious situations with her superiors.
