Personality & Traits
|General Overview||K'Taal, as a Klingon, has a dour personality. However, this has been tempered over the years by her service in Starfleet, and while still difficult to get to know, she is more open than she has been. Extremely loyal to her crewmates, K'Taal will do all she can to ensure the safety of the ship. However, she has a bit of a temper and has been described as getting too close to those she considers friends, sometimes voicing unpopular opinions in their defense.|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths:
|Ambitions||To be a good spouse to her husband, a good mother to her children and a good officer to her husband's command, not all in that order, all of the time.|
|Hobbies & Interests||K'Taal enjoys honing her bat'Leth skills, but also enjoys reading literature--Klingon and other--and actually dislikes most Klingon opera. She has been known to engage in the occasional crew game night, and also has a passion for hand-to-hand combat.|
|Personal History||Born in 2363, on Kronos. K'Taal grew up with two sisters and an older brother. Her father was in the Klingon Defense Force, and her mother taught primary school. K'Taal and her brother followed her father into the Klingon Defense Force, actually going through training together. K'Taal earned her first combat experience during the Dominion War, and both gained respect and loathing for the Cardassians. Unlike most, however, this has, not, impacted her ability to work with the species, as was necessary for a short time in her early Starfleet career. During a skirmish with the Jem'Hadar, K'Taal's brother and sister-in-law were both killed, and she took responsibility for her nephew, remaining extremely loyal to her brother, taking in Koloth as her own.
During the war, K'Taal worked with Starfleet and eventually decided to transfer. While the KDF was loathed to see a good officer leave, they agreed to let her transfer her service, although she kept her Klingon citizenship. K'Taal's first assignment was aboard the old Excelsior class, USS Pythagorus, sh remained here for three years before the ship was decommissioned and then she was assigned through several ships, only remaining aboard each for four years before she went over to the USS Exeter as their Chief Tactical Actions Officer.
On a personal note, she found the ships commanding officer to be much more aggressive then she had otherwise expected from a man who looked human, it wasn't until she interrupted him in one of his training sessions that she realized that this man wasn't fully human, he was, in fact, part Klingon and from a house that was one allied to her house. K'Taal up to this point had preferred the company of women, usually Vulcans or Betazeds but she was willing to make an exception for him. He was also highly intelligent and extremely well educated, facts that only made her interested in him.
The possibility of a romance between these two is not out of the question. Within weeks of the two realizing this fact, they began dating and within a year, the two were mated, married and expecting their second and third children together.
