Physical Description In a few words, N'Livek is tall, thin, and in general looks too thin for her frame. Despite being a perfectly healthy Vulcan, she is consistently mistaken for being underweight. Her cheekbones are high, yet gently sloping to each side. Her eyebrows are high and pointed, and her hair is cropped about an inch off the top of her head: a no-nonsense 'fashion' that is as practical as it is attractive. Her ears taper into dull points, and are set back along her head.

Personality & Traits

General Overview N’Livek is a Vulcan, and as such, suffers from the same series of social difficulties as most. Interactions that would be considered ‘delicate’ are most certainly not her strong point, as she follows the idea of ‘Vulcan Philosophy’ to a fault. She is opposed to the idea that violence is as an effective means to an end as diplomacy, but recognizes that it is a necessary tool, and sometimes, a useful weapon, in carefully measured doses. She is often viewed as a ‘cold fish’, albeit an incredibly efficient one: she does not allow personal feelings or ideas to get in the way of performing her duties to the utmost. This has it’s own series of advantages and disadvantages, and she prioritizes efficiency and performance over niceties and interaction. She is a strong proponent of tradition, and is resistant to change.
Strengths & Weaknesses N’Livek is extremely self-controlled (unusually so for a Vulcan), and reasonably confident: she is perfectly capable of sacrificing the unnecessary for performance. As such, she’s not exactly the most social of people: situations where tact is required are not exactly her forte. She does poorly in social situations, but, through practice, is able to almost exactly identify feelings and emotions of others through careful observation of their body language, and tone.
Ambitions As was her goal for joining Starfleet, N'Livek wants to move forward enough her her life, and save up enough resources, to live by herself, in the middle of nowhere, on a far-flung colony. Her number one interest outside of Starfleet is perfecting her control over herself, and her feelings: a place to call ones' own, totally self-sufficent, is her final goal.
Hobbies & Interests N'Livek devours books, novels, virtually any piece of literature she can get her hands on. It is the thing she does more often than almost anything else, and since reading and research pertains to her job, she is often doing work when she's off-shift. When she isn't reading something, however, she enjoys building models, and dioramas: the perfect control and search for perfection in these displays is appealing.

Personal History N’Livek was born on Luna, Earth’s moon, in Tranquility Base. She was born to a pair of Vulcans, Azeriak and T’Orlyn, both of whom worked as minor bureaucrats for the government there, managing personnel. Life on the Moon was not altogether difficult, and much of her early life is unremarkable: aside, of course, from being one of the few Vulcan families living on the planetoid. She was fascinated with spaceflight, and knew that she would be doing it as a career, someday: this led to her interest in Starfleet, and the Academy. She always had a knack for knowing things, especially those secrets which would enable her to leverage people for things she needed, or to simply be left alone: as a Vulcan child in a Human dominated system, this would prove invaluable. It is here that she also developed her observation skills: in a closed system like Tranquility Base, compounding the knowledge of what to say with how to say it, and the reactions, became invaluable. She entered the academy originally to work as a historian, but she found the work collections she was putting together rather lackluster. Denying to herself that it was the idea of enjoyment that she craved, she slid career paths from historian to active duty because she felt that she could be best used elsewhere: her talent lied in gathering and using information, not digging up what was already known and just re-cataloguing it elsewhere. She signed up with Starfleet as a teenager (at least, in maturation comparison to the others) and was quickly swept up in the standards and codes for everything: it was almost like a dream, everything down to personal appearance and behavior had a regulation regarding it. She's been serving since.
