Physical Description Shira is a strange creature from the Planet Arboria in the Gamma Quadrant. She thin and wiry, her pale skin bearing a faint grey tone and is marked with carvings that may be tribal in nature. Her feet have seen little use as she prefers to make use of the fine, iridescent wings sprouting from her back, floating gently from place to place like a hummingbird. Her limbs and fingers are proportionately long for her frame, her facial features exaggerated compared to most humanoid features. Her eyes are large and the pupils are wide, taking in even the dimmest lights shining in the darkness and giving her incredible night vision. Her eyes have been fitted with filters to reduce the intensity of the light that enters her eyes so it does not blind her. Her hair is almost grass-like with branches and leaves woven in.


Personality & Traits

General Overview Much about this strange creature remains unknown. Since she was discovered, she tends to keep to herself, watching and studying the people around her. She has an inquisitive nature almost insatiable in nature and she loves to be hands on in her discoveries, often violating personal boundaries to get to know a person better.

Shira is still learning to speak basic English, so it's not uncommon for there to be misunderstandings or long, tangential strings of questions. Typically, she'll writing things down to look up later, but sometimes she can get really distracted learning about something new.

Language and cultural barriers aside, Shira is a sweet and kind woman with a giving nature. Ever new person she meets is automatically a new friend and she offers that friendship with the whole of her heart.
Strengths & Weaknesses Shira seems very intelligent and highly perceptive. She is also telekinetic. Communication is still something of a fault; it's not uncommon for her being unable to express something because she doesn't know the right words. Her lack of education is also something of a drawback. She is learning to be a cartographer, learning on the job how to perform her duties, but having grown up on a priitive world, she's having to learn a lot of basic concpets that most people take for granted.
Hobbies & Interests In her free time, Shira can be found in the hydroponics bay tending to the gardens. She also spends a lot of time with Verak.
