Personality & Traits

General Overview Liran hates failure in herself, but is forgiving to a fault of others. She loves big ideas, big questions, but rarely has the patience to puzzle them out. She's fairly gregarious, and makes friends easily, but usually keeps them at arm's length. Very few people are close enough to know her doubts and fears, which are more than she would ever care to admit.
Strengths & Weaknesses Liran is a fantastic pilot, and had great passion for starfleet, however she lacks the patience for following though with technical things.
Ambitions Liran hopes one day to con a starship, not just a shuttle. Secretly she always dreams of being the one to discover something rare and new but she knows that such a circumstance is beyond unlikely.
Hobbies & Interests Since she can't persue it as a career, xenobiology has become sort of a hobby for Liran. She loves the idea of science, even if she can't hack it as a scientist. She adores hiking and touring pristine and rugged landscapes.

Personal History Liran Elar was born and raised on the Trill Homeworld, the middle of three children. Both of her parents were employed at the Science Ministry, and from an early age, she developed a deep appreciation of science. However, while both of her siblings excelled naturally in school, Liran struggled. She loved the idea of things, but never could bring herself to slog through details. Nevertheless, she kept trying, even to the point of preparing to enroll in Starfleet Academy.

It was during this time in her life that she met Verad. He was everything Liran wished she was; smart, studious, academically accomplished. The two of them had a bright, sudden sort of romance. After only a few months, they were very much in love. The romance was cut short when Verad received life-changing news. His application to the Symbiosis Commission had been approved. He would soon be joined with a Symbiont.

After, he was never the same. Liran couldn't get away from the Trill Homeworld fast enough, but while she was accepted into Starfleet Academy, her aptitude for study, or rather lack thereof, made itself painfully obvious. After all but failing multiple scientific courses, Liran switched her focus to flight control. If she couldn't wrap her mind around advanced chemical reactions or fractal growth progressions, at least she could facilitate others doing so. And what's more, she was *good* at it. Piloting a craft was a visceral, freeing experience for her and she felt almost guilty for being so good at something that was her second choice.

Recently, Liran's closest friend from the Academy, Nysetia Bell, secured a position on a new ship, and Liran filed a request to transfer to join her. It's a long shot, but Tia seemed to need a friend, and Liran will do what she can to help.
Service Record On graduation, she was assigned to the USS Mendocino where she served as a shuttle pilot.
