Lieutenant Junior Grade Kira Shiryankin
Name Kira Anne Shiryankin
Position Assistant Chief Engineering Officer
Rank Lieutenant Junior Grade
|Physical Description||Kira is rather tall, but slender, and has the ability to contort herself to fit into almost any space. This is, in part, because of a medical condition that allows her to pop various joints out of place. The problem is that this causes physical damage to the joints, and by this time, she has been advised to avoid doing this.|
|Other Family||None (yet)|
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Kira is quite a tomboy. She was fascinated by boyish things as a child, and quickly got into taking things apart, finding out how they worked, and then put them back together ... sometimes more effeciently than they had been before.
She got into flying planes as a teenager, and entered Starfleet intending to be a fighter pilot. However, when that became impossible, she transferred into the Engineering department.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Kira has a go-get-em attitude, coupled with a tomboy streak, she's almost more boy then the men are. As such, she has no problems handling social situations.
The problem is Kira's a woman. She finds it hard to express that side of herself, and to an extent, it's almost a forgotten part of her identity, almost drowned out by the tomboy, or the engineer.
|Ambitions||Actually, she's not very ambitious. She likes her job, her status, and her life, and if something better comes along, such as a promotion, so be it.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Kira likes collecting antiques, especially models of things like sailing ships, and old planes. She is also a history buff, and follows current events.|
|Ship Certifications||Starship Engineering|
|Science Certifications||Engineering-related sciences|
|Skills||Various engineering sciences
|Personal History||Kira had a pretty normal childhood, growing up in Casper WY. The area is to this day still a mining industrual town, because oil is being refined into components used in gel packs. Kira's father worked in the nearby mines, while her mother tended to the family needs.
As a child, Kira liked the outdoors, and spent a lot of time doing outdoor activities. Through all of this, she developed a tomboy-ish personality which has colored most of her history. She flew various planes as a teenager, and wanted to become a fighter pilot.
Much to her parent's relief, Kira missed the opportunity to enlist into Starfleet during the Dominion War, as she was fully excited about doing ... instead, she served a couple years in the Academy as an in-system fighter pilot. She was intending to be a starship-based fighter pilot, however, she was involved in an accident during training. While she was not at fault, she suffered injuries that kept her from passing flight school, and she transferred into engineering.
She graduated three years later.
