Like many Caitians, she has a long tail that helps aid in balance and agility when called for. Due to the differences in foot structure, she tends to go barefoot, even in uniform, unless the occasion or mission calls for footwear as a necessity.

Personality & Traits

General Overview (Current states of mind, mannerisms, likes and dislikes, personality quirks and traits. Include learned languages if you wish) R'naya is a curious sort, with a hunger for learning how things work and how to make things work better, and finds a certain kind of beauty in an efficiently functioning system. She likes to challenge her mind, trying to think outside the norm in order to make improvements.
Strengths & Weaknesses (Please have at least 3 of each, these can be both personality and physical. Some can be both a Strength and a Weakness depending on situation.) STRENGTHS-
keen hearing--Caitian ears do wonders to hear the fine workings of a system.
insatiable curiosity--a cat-like trait that is an absolute truth.
determination--She doesn't like a problem to go unsolved.

tendency to just 'do it herself', dislike of delegation.
stubborn - the dogged determination can become an irritating stubbornness at times.
tendency to hyper focus -can be great when trying to get a job done, can be irritating when other things need to get done.
Ambitions (What does your character wants to achieve at the time of joining the crew of the Pioneer.) R'naya wants nothing more than to explore and see all she can. Like most of her race, she has an appreciation for beauty, finding it in even the most mundane of things, and she wants to see as much beauty in the galaxy as possible, whether that be far off star systems, or wonderful new technology, she wants to lay eyes on it.
Hobbies & Interests (What activities does your character like doing while off-duty? What does your character have a passion for that may led to an activity?) Her desire to learn and knowledge-seeking mind have prompted her to dabble in various subjects, from classical mechanics to the Klingon language, and she flits between hobbies and interests frequently. Her most longstanding interests include physical activities such as swimming and rock climbing, as well as archery and a dance style she picked up growing up on Earth - Argentine Tango. She enjoys music, art, and reading just as well, though.

Personal History & Career (Starfleet or Civilian)

Personal History (How did your character grow up? Did your character do any civilian jobs or travel before applying to Starfleet Academy? Is your character's species a Federation member? Where did your character attend Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Schooling? Did your character live on their world or live amongst the stars? At what age did they start Starfleet Academy if they did?) R'naya grew up on Earth, a child of an ambassador's assistant and an art teacher. She attended all of her school years in a small, private school near the family home in Oregon. When she wasn't in school, she was outside in nature, enjoying the rugged beauty of the area, either hiking, rock climbing or on a river or the ocean with her handful of close friends, most of them human. Once she was old enough to travel on her own for extended periods, she spent time all over earth and ventured to the various bases in the system, as well.

She watched her brother enter Starfleet, and decided pretty early on that she wanted to follow in his footsteps. She always had a gift for puzzle-solving, and applied it to engineering. At the relatively young age of twenty, she joined Starfleet with a goal of becoming an engineer.
Service Record (From Starfleet Academy to Joining the Pioneer's Crew)(Please include the why for promotions, years, what the assignments are (Ship, station, planet base) and ages.) After graduating from the academy at twenty-four years of age, she bounced between several ships and stations, wherever there was a need for an extra set of hands, and if it got her farther out to the edge of known space, all the better.
