Personal History

Her parents were killed fighting the Cardassians long before Anara can remember, she has vague memories of a dark haired woman smiling at her but isn’t sure if that was her mother or one of the numerous Bajorans who looked after her and her brother.

Anara grew up fighting with the resistance, excelled in combat, tactics and leadership. She soon became one of their top group leaders, her team successfully pulled of a number of raids on the Cardassian supply camps and freeing many Bajoran prisoners. She learned interrogation and torture techniques from the best in the resistance plus a few from her time being interrogated by the Cardassians. Thanks to a timely rescue by her people she got out before breaking though the Cardassians still left their mark on both her body and her mind.

When her brother and his girlfriend were killed Anara took in their three year old boy Jon, she tried shielding him from the worst of the war but ended up teaching him all she knew when the young lad demanded to be allowed to help the resistance efforts. He proved to be a fast learner and capable warrior.

After the occupation ended she found herself at a loose end, not knowing anything else other than fighting she joined the Bajoran Militia. However this didn’t give her the action she was used and she soon got bored.

She had a couple of friends who had joined Star Fleet Marines and told her how good it was. So she transferred from the Militia to the Starfleet Marine Corps. Her skills and natural talents from growing up on Bajor served her well and she soon rose through the ranks.

She met a young fiery PFC Keira Atkinson; despite their ranks the pair began good friends and colleagues. Both have saved the other numerous times as well as gotten the other out of trouble.

Keira was there for Anara when she discovered just how much her fleetie husband, of five years, liked green when the pair walked in on him screwing an Orion dancing girl over her dining table. Anara decked him before Keira dragged her off him, where Keira proceeded to kick him until Anara announced that he wasn’t worth it. They both went and got riotously drunk that night and ended up in the brig anyway. Their CO, knowing the two women, took the situation into account and let them off with a stern warning.

She has a reputation for ensuring no one gets left behind and kicking ass. It’s said that the Prophets watch over her as she has survived many missions people thought nobody would have lived through. Something many Marines in her unit and others have witnessed.

The Moondarks were at Hentus IV when Anara’s unit became surrounded and cut-off by superior forces. They were sent in to get her unit out and found the then Lt Colonel with a nasty wound to her leg still dropping the enemy and keeping her unit together. With the Moondarks special operations team they held the strategically important pass until the rest of the Marine battalion arrived and drove off the enemy forces.

Her career and fighting have been her life. She has many friends but few family members that she knows of. She gets bored quick when everything is quiet and peaceful so she often spends her spare time in the gym or holodeck training.

When the chance to command a Marine vessel came along she recognised it as a chance for a new challenge and accepted the CO position, although she doesn’t regret all the paperwork she has to delegate to her aide Lt York. Since serving on the Freya she has become the TFXO and been promoted to Brigadier.

She has literally been there and done the lot. She had fought on a wide variety of different terrains against numerous different enemies, sometimes winning and sometime loosing. With all her experience she keeps getting offers of a position at the Academy teaching the cadets but has so far turned the job down with the exception of the occasional lecture usually when she has been injured and not allowed anywhere near a battlefield.

Since taking up command of the Freya she has been and fallen in love with one of her company commanding officers. She is still waiting to see if it works out though her fingers are secretly crossed and she is hoping that it does. But only time will tell if Markus feels the same way.
