Background Notes:
Early Life History: Orphan
Previous Career: Starfleet (Lieutenant Commander, 16 years)
Executive Assistant, v'Shandru Enterprises (3 years)
T'aala is the the only surviving child of Tristus Martius, a Romulan Centurion and T'Far, a captured Vulcan colonist. T'Far was sold as a slave to Martius by members of the Orion Syndicate and gave birth to T'aala. When T'aala was 10, T'Far killed Martius and herself. T'aala lived on her own for several years, first as a ragged street urchin and later as a prostitute in a high-priced brothel, until she scraped enough money together to bribe a merchant spacer to take her out of the Romulan Star Empire. Arriving in Federation space, she registered as a refugee and was taken to Vulcan, where she learned the rudiments of Vulcan society and began formal education. At age 20, chafing under the restrictions of Vulcan society, she entered Starfleet Academy and rose to the rank of Lieutenant Commander as an Operations Officer.

Unfortunately, her mental instability eventually caused her Starfleet career to stall, and she resigned mere steps ahead of being discharged on psychological grounds. Three years ago, she met Niko v'Shandru, and their personalities meshed. Her position as his Executive Assistant allows her to enjoy the privileges to which she feels she is entitled, while taking revenge on at least one of the objects of her wrath.

When v'Shandru Enterprises captured the Romulan Bird of Prey Regulus (since refitted under the name SS Kowalsky), T'aala had to be restrained from killing all the surviving Romulan crew.

Description and Personality:
Height: 1.85m
Mass: 75kg
Complexion: light olive
Hair: black
Eyes: brown
T'aala is a tall, slender Vulcanoid woman with striking features. Although she takes pains to hide her emotions, she would cheerfully roast every Vulcan, Romulan and Orion alive. She is devoted to Niko v'Shandru and is rarely seen apart from him. T'aala habitually wears form-fitting black clothing and stiletto heels which add to her already considerable height. She is always armed with at least two knives and a Type I Phaser, and her heels conceal sharpened spikes.

Background Notes:
T'aala was originally played by Trish Slater 15 years ago under the original FASA Star Trek RPG rules, in a campaign set in the late 23rd century in the Triangle. She has been converted to the ICON format and adapted for a 24th century campaign.
