Personality & Traits

General Overview Lirha is an intelligent, passionate, and ambitious young Orion. While in uniform, she presents herself professionally and performs her duties with precision. As with most women of her species, she is very passionate, affectionate, and open around those with whom she is comfortable. She has a strong sense of loyalty to her friends, family, and crew, and will not hesitate to eliminate any person who threatens them. She often-times becomes over-emotional which is more so a flaw of her Orion culture and genetics rather than her personality, but serves her well to keep her crew and subordinates in line.
Strengths Lirha excels at verbal communication, a trait developed over many years spent aboard trade vessels and interacting with other species. She is very cultured and knowledgeable about other races and can speak most of the major Alpha Quadrant languages, including a few minor ones. Good with words and possessing an amiable personality, she prefers to use her tongue as a weapon instead of a phaser. She is not telepathic but is very adept at interpreting body language and speech which gives her good insight into other people's personalities. She is a master manipulator and uses her body's natural curves and tongue to get what she wants, when she wants it. She is also not opposed to violence should all else fail.
Weaknesses One could say Lirha is tactically-disclined, but that would do a disservice to all KCA tactical officers. As an Orion, she is not well-versed in scientific methods or terminology, nor is she the most abstract thinker.
Ambitions Lirha would like to continue to rule the KCA as queen regent, and ideally conquer and suppress the Terran Empire once and for all.
Hobbies & Interests Sex, food, and song and dance. These are the delicacies of Lirha's life which mean the most to her, and she will stop at nothing to indulge herself as needed at any given point in time.
Vernacular She speaks calmly and deliberately with an educated vocabulary, though once she becomes agitated her voice becomes forceful and rage-filled. Her tonality is sometimes soft and sultry, and possesses a mid-to-high pitch which is average for most females. Born and raised around Orions, she speaks with a noticeable Yrevish accent.
Orientation Bisexual
Language(s) Spoken Federation Standard, Orion, Yrevish, Kolari, Andorii, Vulcan, Bajoran, Klingon, Ferengi, Romulan

Personal History Born and raised on Rigel VII during the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance Occupation, Lirha is the cultural product of several empires and races blended together under a common flag. Though her family heritage is Orion and her allegiance is to the Orion Empire, she knows the Orion Empire is but one of several different subjugated species within the KCA and therefore she strives to do what is in the best interests of her people: to serve the KCA, for better or for worse, and for the ultimate fulfillment and service to all Orions.

Within the KCA, Lirha's rise to power came swiftly and unexpectedly. She served aboard many various Klingon starships during the TE rebellion campaign, and her aptitude for linguistic translation as well as deception earned her coveted positions among the highest of the KCA admiralty. While she was not technically an infiltrator, her sex appeal and verbal prowess allowed her to manipulate most males of any species she encountered, especially Humans, and in 2388, she was able to infiltrate the primary underground TE resistance network and dismantle it by providing a kill-list to the KCA of all the Rebellion's most prominent generals and lieutenants.

Now, as queen regent of the KCA, Lirha has committed herself to the complete annihilation of the Terran Empire, and will use any means available to her to ensure a safe and productive Klingon-Cardassian Empire for the benefit of the Orion people.
