Height 1.81m (5'9")

Physical Description Tall, graceful and womanly Amelia certainly stands out in a crowd. Her fiery red hair and bright blue eyes are often the first things that people notice about Amelia. The attention her looks bring her is something Amelia is still trying to get to grips with. Despite being an operations officer, Amelia is in surprisingly good shape.

Preferring bright colors and boasting a wide and varied wardrobe, Amelia seems to be set for any and all occasions. Despite having a lot of flashier outfits off duty Amelia has always preferred simpler and more comfortable clothing.

Amelia has no scars but she does have a couple of tattoos. The first, "For Rory" she got when she was accepted to Starfleet Academy. Her main inspiration for joining Starfleet ever since she was little, getting something to remember him by seemed right. Situated on her right wrist, it is a constant reminder of better days and why she does what she does.

Her second is a field of stars across her hip, while this doesn't have the same deep meaning as her first, Amelia didn't get it for a deeper reason. This was one of her attempts to fit in, she and some people she wanted to be friends went out on the town during liberty. At the time the stars had been cute and seemed like a good idea. While today she wouldn't have made the same decision, Amelia doesn't regret it either.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Inexperienced and completely new to the fleet Amelia is eager to explore and learn. Excelling at the academy Amelia had her pick of assignments, but she never would have expected that she’d actually get to head Gladiator’s Ops department. A very ambitious young woman Amelia loves to pour over texts and data, absorbing whatever she can. She is far more comfortable with datasets and reports than people but that doesn’t mean she’s not social…she’s just not very good at it. In fact she often tries very hard to get to know people and she wants to be liked and make friends. Amelia just has an unfortunate history of saying the wrong thing and firmly placing her foot in her mouth. Because of these incidents she’s developed a self-conscious streak and when out of her comfort zone she has trouble asserting herself.

This comfort zone is very distinct, relating mostly to tech and other mechanical or scientific pursuits. Although there isn’t one she excels at, Amelia is quick and is pretty able to pick things up. This however had not extended to combat, Amelia while a physical person, never quite picked up on it. She couldn’t get the forms and struggled through each class, about the only thing she had going for her was an above par right hook. Between that and her strong…almost single-minded desire to be a part of Starfleet helped her not to give up and pass the course.

Amelia’s desire to be a member of Starfleet has been with her since she was a child. Growing up in the simple countryside near Glasgow, she was always looking for more. But her main motivation came from her older brother, despite being fifteen years her senior she and Rory were still very close. She has many fond memories of the big brother with the kindest smile, who would give her piggyback rides and protect her from bullies. But most of all she remembered the stories he would tell her; lying out under the stars every night, he would tell her about each one. Amelia was enchanted by those stories, she would think about those alien worlds all the time, would dream about them every night even after Rory left for the academy.

Amelia would look forward to ever comm, every visit home and most of all the time when she would be old enough to join Starfleet herself. It might have been an adolescent fantasy but she always dreamed that they could serve on the same hip and final have all those adventures they talked about. Unfortunately in 2378 Rory and his ship went missing and was presumed lost. Amelia was devastated, her best friend in the whole universe was gone. It took years for her to get back into a good place in her life. At first it seemed that Rory’s loss would have broken her spirit, but instead it gave her the drive to carry forward. Now she had even more motivation to join the fleet, this time it was to honor her brother’s memory and hopefully find out what happened to him.

Hobbies & Interests Amelia's hobbies are a bit of a mixed bag and flow with how she's feeling at the time. Sometimes she really wants to be active and will go out and dance or play some sports. Other times she wants to be sedentary and read a book or absorb a technical manual or even sit on her couch and eat something sweet.
