|Personal History||in 2369 Kara was born to Jayce and Clarissa Hoffman, in Scotland. They lived a wealthy and prosperous life, her father being a prestigious artist and her mother being a wonderful tailor. Kara grew up learning how to sew knit and paint, and never lacked any creative outlets. Until she one day learned what her parents had in mind for her. They wanted her to take over both of their businesses when they retired, but Kara had already developed a natural gift with electronics and circuits during school. Often hiding half finished inventions and technology projects under her bed and in various other places. When her mother found out, she suggested that Kara attend a technical academy instead of an arts academy, and not to tell her father. Jayce however found out anyway, but was glad to see his daughter develop her own skill.
Kara was born genetically male, however during the time spent at the technical academy, Kara upon a year of seeing a counsellor decided to change her gender due to dysphoria, social anxiety and because she had always felt "wrong" somehow.
After her Gender reassignment to Female, Kara worked hard, and passed her technical courses with ease, being admitted into star-fleet Engineering academy. There she studied and worked for many years, until finally she graduated 3rd in her class last year. Since then she has been trying to figure out what to do. Will she join a star-ship, star-base or stay on earth? With her decision to apply to the U.S.S Elysium, she hopes to continue growing and developing as a human, and as an engineer. Helping to further the knowledge of the universe.
