Personality & Traits

General Overview Although it has been several months since she was joined, Soraya is still to some degree sorting her personality out. She is outgoing, generally looking for new experiences, and not even slightly interested in going home. The Vesta offers a chance to see what's out there on the furthest extent of the Federation's reach.
Strengths & Weaknesses Her previous two hosts both were decently experienced in medicine. She could passably operate as a field medic in a pinch, but Soraya herself has no experience with it. She's particularly good with rearranging matter, otherwise known as transporters and replicators. And the coffee will taste better if she's aboard.
Hobbies & Interests Coffee. The whole outgoing and new experiences thing doesn't start until the second cup does.

Personal History Xel's joining to Soraya Wren had been particularly trying. Xel had barely survived the stab wound which killed Relkin and severely damaged the symbiont pouch. Even commandeering the fastest vessel in orbit at the time, a variant Klingon bird of prey, the trip from H'atoria to Trill was almost too long.

Soraya herself had been on the list, but only two days prior to the joining, had been completely unaware just how soon her life would change. So Soraya had been plucked from her duty, returned to Trill, and implanted with the Xel symbiont as soon as it arrived. She spent several weeks in the hospital as her symbiont recovered fully from the ordeal, and returned to duty. Despite challenges reintegrating to with her life on board, she remained on the New Mexico for several months.
