Personality & Traits

General Overview Mona is a liberal and open-minded young woman who enjoys the company of her peers and has an outgoing personality. She tries to be fair in her dealings with others and disapproves of disruptive behaviour.

She is approachable on and off duty, though one has to gain her trust first before she'll show the sensual side Orions are so famous for.

While she prefers to resolve conflicts at a distance, she is a fierce fighter when the need arises, and not afraid to get into the thick of it. She is calm under fire and has a logical, analytical mind.

Ambitions Mona is a hedonist by nature, she has few ambitions beyond her immediate needs and while she can be relied upon to do her job well, she'll be nobody's first choice for a senior leadership position.
Hobbies & Interests Mona gets most of her cultural understanding from reading historical novels and playing historical games and holodeck programmes. This has the drawback that her understanding isn't reliably accurate.

She loves swimming, dancing and fighting, the latter preferably on the holodeck rather than squaring off against real opponents, though she is always up for a sparring match.

Mona loves to get away from civilisation at every opportunity, often spending her shore leave out in the wilderness with only basic survival equipment. She is always delighted when she finds someone willing to share that experience with her.

Character Background

Personal History Mona is an only child, born on Risa in 2371 to a respectable member of Orion society rather than a participant in the disreputable business many people associate Orions with. She received a decent education but was never the most attentive child in class. She has broad interests and can get excited about a lot of things but learning something just because it was demanded that she did had never been her strong point.

Originally, her mother had intended for her to assist in the expansion of her business on the holiday planet but Mona had different ideas. While there was no stigma attached to being a sex worker in Orion society, she wanted to see the galaxy and have more freedom of choice, in bedroom matters as well as otherwise.

She left home at sixteen and apprenticed on a passenger liner, which involved duties close enough to what she knew that she could do them well enough to get around. She gave up on that lifestyle when she was stabbed by an angry Ferengi for not giving him the oo-mox he demanded, and after a few weeks in recovery, Mona decided to learn some combat skills.

One thing led to another, and she quickly found that she enjoyed the thrill of fighting. With Starfleet actively recruiting, she joined the Marines despite the green of the uniforms clashing with the green of her skin, and through a mix of some hard work (and the occasional sexual favour, entirely appropriate in an Orion's world view), made it to a starship posting in 2391, the Excelsior class U.S.S. Rainbow Warrior.

She proved to be hard-working and disciplined, never shirking duty and always prepared to help others, which got her recommended for a bigger unit with broader responsibilities. Thus, in 2395 she was assigned the Elysium.
