Physical Description Adora has the grey skintone, and neck & cranial ridges that are typical of Cardassians, although hers are not quite as severe as a full-blooded Cardassian. She also bears the nose ridges that are typical of the Bajoran race, but she does not wear the customary Bajoran earring. Her hair is long, black, and curly, and she frequently pulls it up into elaborate updos to keep it out of her way while she is on duty. She is around average height for a woman, and has a far more lithe build than one would expect from a Cardassian.

Her facial features are fine, and a casual observer would likely say that she was attractive; assuming they weren’t put off by the whole “Cardassian” thing. She has almond shaped brown eyes, thin lips, and even, white teeth.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Adora is the quiet, reserved type of person that comes off as shy on first impression. But in truth, she prefers to observe than to actually get involved in things... at least at first. She understands that there are some that will be prejudiced against her because of her background, and as such she tries not to bring too much attention to herself, preferring to prove herself through actions, rather than make a fool of herself through words.

Adora has always been more the intellectual sort than the physical sort, and one of the things that held her back from graduating Starfleet Academy with honors was poor marks in classes dealing with personal combat skills. She performed rather well in the Intelligence classes, and in the event that the whole “Helm” thing doesn't work out for her, she plans to transfer to the Intelligence department.

Although she considers herself to be more Cardassian than Bajoran in beliefs and in temperament, she is slightly uneasy around other Cardassians. She has never spent extensive amounts of time around Bajorans, and secretly fears that her mere existence is a harsh reminder to them of the Occupation.

Personal History Adora is the child of a Bajoran comfort woman, who was born towards the end of the Occupation. Though her mother swears up and down that Adora’s father was no one important, she is too clever to truly believe that. Only noteworthy Cardassian men had the ways and means to keep a Bajoran comfort woman and her resultant spawn hidden. A man who lacked in influence wouldn’t have ensured that she went to the best Cardassian run school on Lissepia Prime. If he cared enough to grant her such an education, why would he not have visited, were it not for his own protection?

Adora was their first of two children, and her mother raised them with the hopes that in a post-Occupation, post-Dominion War world that there would be a better, safer place for her daughters. It wasn’t as easy as she anticipated though, as the Cardassian people were still reluctant to accept these orphans of the Occupation, and Bajorans were hesitant to trust them. As Lissepia was a prominent location for trade, Adora was able to barter her way onto a transport ship that took her to Deep Space 9.

On her own, and exposed to how the world outside of Lissepia worked, Adora fell in love with Starfleet, and enlisted. Initially she was declined: she would need someone of rank in Starfleet to vouch for her, first. She decided to apply for a position as a pilot aboard Deep Space 9, who took shuttles down to Bajor. After her first couple of less-than-pleasant visits to Bajor, she begged her civilian supervisors to allow her to remain in the cockpit, for she feared that a Bajoran could react in such a fashion that would cause her to lose her employment. Her supervisors consented, and in time she was one of the best civilian pilots on the station. By then, word of her Starfleet dreams had spread up the chain, and one day, Adora piloted a single passenger through the wormhole and into the Gamma Quadrant. After arriving at the unexpected destination, the passenger requested to see Adora. At first, she was hesitant, but when she entered the passenger compartment, she was presented with an opportunity: join Starfleet as a non-commissioned officer, and fly something a hair bigger.

Starfleet History Upon taking her oaths as a non-commissioned officer, Adora was less-than-thrilled to learn that her prestigious first assignment was flying a Federation personnel transport. Still, she kept her nose to the grindstone and did the best job that she could do, and after several years of work, she found herself assigned to the Galileo.
Medical History The records didn't carry over into the Federation medical data banks, but as a child, Adora was frequently injured. She was bullied and kicked around by her peers, resulting in contusions, lacerations, and even a few broken bones. As an adult, she has had no noteworthy ailments.
