Tienn is cool, calm and collected at all times, its almost a mask that she wears because when she gets angry, it gets ugly.

Why fight them when you can make them your allies and get them to fight for you.

Weaknesses: can sometimes get distracted by the details.
She can also be too eager to prosecute.

Mess with her at your peril.
|Hobbies & Interests||Flight, history of exploration with holodeck program, cooking. paleontology and reading engineering tech manuals. Spending time with her husband, indulging in his interests which doesn't say much considering she'll try anything once.

The PADD in question has been highly customized for her goals.
|Personal History||Tienn Kerris was born second eldest of the Tienn family children, she was born in 2352 just moments after Tienn Ezas. She generally looked after her younger siblings, same with her younger brothers when they came along but they had to deal with the endless fear of the Cardassians. The good times didn't last long and they ended with her twin getting raped by a Cardassian guard while both young women were on their way to their Itanu ceremony.
Kerris heard the details from Ezas herself and later from Nerra and also from Iteela who both had been deeply traumatized by the event in question. after hearing that both were dead, the family had little choice but to go underground and join the resistance.
Kerris was able to follow her twin Ezas off-world and from there she fled to the Federation. What she did not know however their mother was picked up and made to serve as a comfort woman for the Cardassians. What she did know was that her mother went missing. Kerris assumed that she was either dead or worse, and this one action really defined her actions from that point onwards.
Kerris was able to make her way to Earth after having served on a couple of freighters, looking for work and once on Earth, she proceeded to join Starfleet, making her way to the Boot Camp was easier than child's play as she had developed the ability to sleep anywhere at any time. She enlisted in 2369.
Her time here was highly educational for her as it was exactly what she needed. She learned a very serious amount of things in a very short time and upon graduation, she was assigned to Starbase 375, a Regula Three starbase near the Cardassian Border.
It was here that she got dragged into the mess regarding Admiral Robert Leyton's conspiracy, she was offered the chance to do the right thing as Starfleet hunted for answers regarding the event in question and who was involved.
Kerris refused and applied to transfer off of Starbase 375 but she was more or less refused. It wasn't until 2374 when she finally was approved to leave but that was after a rather deep review of everyone on the base because of Commander T. Ishmael Snowden who was later convicted of treason.
Tienn was acquitted then her reassignment was granted. She went over to the USS El Dorado and it was here she remained until the run-up to the Dominion War. Her ship was damaged during the Second Borg attack and she was reassigned to the USS Fe'garren for the first year of the war with the Dominion.
She fought the Dominion assigned to the USS Fe'garren until the battle of Benzar when the ship was towed back to a Federation starbase for repairs, she was temporarily reassigned to the USS Thunderchild, an Akira class ships where she remained for two months then she went back to the Fe'garren where she finished out the war and remained until 2377.
Her next posting was the USS Nath'qu, A Steamrunner class ship which also had quite a war record with over forty Jem'Hadar ships killed in six major battles. Kerris considered it a privilege to serve on this ship and the chief of security took her under his wing and he taught her a great deal about how security worked.
It was here that she met her future husband, a Vulcan male named Suvek. The two of them hit it off rather slowly as they both took the time to build up their relationship but six months into it, he suddenly went into the pon-far several years early thanks to an encounter with several dozen Orion slaves and Kerris helped him with matters. It was not something she wished to do but she knew the consequences if she did nothing so she offered herself to him.
Suvek realized that here stood someone who was worthy of getting to know as she did not need to offer herself to him but she did, saving his life in the process. Their relationship quickly deepened as a result of this, him seeing into her mind and her seeing his as they both realized that their feelings were shared by the other in the relationship.
Kerris realized that Suvek was not the average Vulcan and she wasn't the average Bajoran so the two ended up getting married and along came their first child who was conceived as a result of the pon far. Over the next few years, several more children would come along as Suvek followed his wife from assignment to assignment. From the Nath'qu to the Pel-Gaash to the Koral. A Steamrunner to a Galaxy and then back to the Steamrunner class a second time.
It was her assignment to the Nevsky which she greatly relished and she would miss it after being posted to the Argonne as their new Chief of Security.
She was asked to report to April Yamaguchi and was told rather bluntly "Clean this ship up. use whatever methods are needed but I want this ship cleaned out of malcontents, imbeciles and idiots."
Her marching orders clear. Kerris began to settle into life on the Argonne as their new Chief of Security, A year later she was offered a posting she simply couldn't refuse, that was to become the Executive officer of the USS Grey Wolf, she made only one condition and that was that her husband came with her. Torilla agreed and assigned him as Chief of the Boat.
