|Personal History||Braelynn Di'Tomasso was born as Braelynn Des'Moi in a slum on the Orion Homeworld, her mother was a prostitute and her father was one of her clients. As such her story was a vile and dark one while she grew up, she was routinely abused and tormented by the other children and even by some of the adults too.
She lived in a harsh and brutal world where your looks determined where or not you lived or you died, lorded over by a few rich old men with latinum in their eyes and girls on their minds. The man at the top was known only as 'Togran Feric' and he was rumored to prefer the attention of girls under the age of fourteen but over the age of ten and he was also rumored to be sleeping with a new girl every night.
Braelynn Di'Tomasso was forced into prostitution early, sometimes she was beaten and other times she was rewarded then used and abused.
She lost touch with her mother who apparently turned up dead a week later, the victim of a gang rape on Koralis's Southern side. Braelynn had been so traumatized by this point that she finally snapped but she went about getting her revenge in a rather evil way.
Quietly the six gangbangers all ended up dead in rather gruesome ways and yet she was never caught for this, simply because the police decided to declare the entire city as a no-go area and they simply washed their hands of the problem.
Braelynn was able to steal quite a small fortune from these six criminals, one of them was Togran Feric which Braelynn did not mind in the least.
Braelynn was able to liberate a small ship and get off world but not having any ideas on where to go, she simply picked a direction and fled. However for the first time in her life, luck and fate were with her as the USS John C Stennis appeared out of warp and simply captured the shuttle, she was beamed out before she could grab any of her weapons.
The Security Chief was there along with the ships Exec and a few others. Unfortunately, Braelynn suspected a trap and went for the nearest guy to her, she slapped aside his phaser as she crashed into him, knocking him over but she had the sense to grab her as she did so, pulling her onto him as he landed in a heap on the floor with her atop him.
"Calm down... Nobody is going to hurt you."
"I got this.." as he tossed his phaser to one of the other guys, he simply wrapped the terrified child in a hug as he gently held her. "Easy. I'm Robert Di'Tomasso." and that was how the father would meet his adopted daughter. a sickbay visit followed and a full-scale investigation launched into the entire affair by order of the ships Captain.
Meanwhile, Di'Tomasso took in this angry and frightened young woman who had never known anything resembling a stable life before and together with his wife, he showed Braelynn what stability was.
It took her many months to overcome her habits even as the Di'Tomasso's filled for the adoption of Braelynn but even that took months and they said there was no guarantee but Robert stuck his foot down angrily. "She deserves some peace... and I will raise her as my own.... with our without your fucking consent."
Captain Dominic Pilla who was the JAG Officer was going to deny it but it was Braelynn who held the final say on the matter, she was asked straight out and she said simply. "Here. I am free... I am free to be myself... to build a future for myself..and I will, but.... I will do it here with these people.... who did not need to take me in... yet they did... and I owe them everything I am for their kindness.... they are the one ray of the sunshine in a world of black shit.. and you are punishing them for it."
The case was settled the very next day and Braelynn Des'Moi became Braelynn Di'Tomasso, she learned quickly how to count, read and write as she began to turn her attention to her studies before her, she had her siblings looking over her and protecting her from just about everyone around her.
Braelynn bonded quickly with her new siblings. Nathan took the small Orion under his wings as he was able to show her how to be a kid but also that she could be herself rather than try to be something she wasn't. Her interests began to manifest themselves quickly during these times in her life.
When she graduated high school at age twenty as she had been held back a couple of years, her scholastic grades were never that great, to begin with, and getting her to learn anything really complex was more or less a waste of time.
Finding herself at loose ends, she decided to enlist so she could bring death to the enemies of those she cared about, her time at boot camp was more of what she already knew but she didn't stand out in any way but she learned a great deal and she found a place after the Gunny instructed her to 'Earn it. Don't just be given it... you got to WORK hard for it and you damn well will work TWICE as hard."
Needless to say, she loved it and her first posting was to the USS Wake Island, here she served for a couple of years before being recommended for Force Recon School as she could almost disappear into the bush when planet-side and during exercises, nobody could ever find her.
She was promoted and packed off to Force Recon school, she was able to showcase just how good she was during a major exercise when she and one other were able to hold off an enemy attack several dozen times her size.
They assumed her position was a lone sniper than a simple sniping team and yet she was unqualified or certified, her spotter thought she was playing with his mind but he later checked and sure enough she wasn't, so he told their superiors of this sergeant's accomplishments so they tried her for the certification and she passed with flying colors.
This was the first time she met her usual spotter, one Lance Sergeant Odessa Martell who as fortune had it, was also an Orion woman.
Needless to say, the two women became almost inseparable from that point and yet they were a very effective but somewhat lethal combination. Also, their personalities meshed and they turned into something of a comical duo. However, Braelynn earned a commission for herself so she was reassigned from the USS Argonne and was sent to the Starfleet base on Stapelton Center, one of Earth's oldest colonies orbiting Wolf 359. She spent just over three months in officer candidate school before entering Starfleet proper and being assigned to the Century class USS Endeavour as one of their Operation officers.
Di'Tomasso found this assignment to be a completely new kind of challenge for her as she had been forged into a weapon since she entered the Marines over ten years earlier. She turned her training into a major outlet for her rage and her energy, quickly earning a second black belt in kung fu and a third in ninjitsu. Di'Tomasso herself is a monument to the art of war. Now she faces life on the Eclipse as their new Chief Operations Officer.
Privately. Di'Tomasso is not sure if she is prepared for this but she's not about to say that to anyone, she'll keep it to herself and deal with it herself.
