|Personal History||Nuala was born into a crime family. In her early life she was exposed to a lot of lies, double talk, and back stabbing. At five she began her training as a courtesan. She was trained in etiquette, dancing, and hand to hand combat. She was conditioned to be obedient. She was sold into slavery by her family when she was thirteen.
After a year of service, her master's yacht was ambushed by renegade Klingons. They brought her to an unaligned backwater world in the Triangle. There, two xeno biologists were exploring the planet. Dr. Lilian Takabe had sympathy for the young Orion girl. Dr. Takabe bought her and adopted her. This was against the wishes of Takabe's partner, Dr. Vrak Trohnar (a Vulcan).
At first the transition was tough for Nuala. She wasn't sure if Lilian's affection for her was real or some sort of ruse. Her life did improve. She oddly found herself attached to Vrak first.
Vrak was very strict with her. Nuala disliked it at first but found she needed the consistency. No clever deceptions or ruses. Vrak was as he presented himself. He was also immune to Nuala's pheromones, which helped build trust.
Her trust with Lilian was slower to build. When it did it was very strong.
Her new parents took her on their expeditions.
