Lucia Maria Rinaldi is the youngest daughter of the well known vid-producer Marissa Giorlando Rinaldi and Thomaso Rinaldi M.D., an acclaimed trauma surgeon. She has five older sisters. She was born and raised in Sassari, Sardinia, Italy, a city which became known in the early 23rd Century for the contributions the teaching hospital and training facility, The Renato Bombelli Memorial Institute of Orthopedics and Trauma has made to the field of space medicine.
At a young age Lucia knew she wanted to join Starfleet and is the first in her family to do so. She initially wanted to follow in her father's footsteps and become a trauma surgeon but as she got older and advanced in her studies, Lucia decided to pursue Psychology and Psychiatry instead. Her interest in these fields was fueled partly by her
empathic and mildly telepathic abilities. She honed these abilities with supplemental training for several years on Vulcan and on Betazed.
While at SFA she fell in love with and married fellow cadet Shel Tarin, a charismatic Betazoid. Their marriage after less than a year with no children. Her ex-husband, now Commander, Shel Tarin, serves as a Linguistics Instructor on Qo'noS. The two remain friends.
Lt. Cmdr Rinaldi has been serving as a Counselor at SF HQ for five years and has just been promoted to Lt. Cmdr. and assigned to Starfleet Academy.
In her spare time, Lucia carries on a family tradition of lacemaking. She also has had several poems published and is working on her first novel.
