Other Family Her crew(s)
I am 448 years old. Though most humans find that figure staggering, it is really quite young for an El Aurian. Although we age, we age at a rate most humans do not understand. Our life spans are extremely long and generally cover centuries and more. To be 448 is to be physically appearing to be about 40ish in human years. I grew up in Boreal on the El Aurian Home world. My parents were both educators and researchers at the university. They later became chose ambassadors from our world to earth...a job they did well. My world, the one in which I grew up in has always been one full of learning...of knowledge and of stories from days past. As I grew, I accompanied my parents on their treks to Earth. For many centuries we were only quiet observers, unobtrusive strangers who just appeared from nowhere. My parents witnessed first-hand America's birth and I saw it's fall...I saw war mar the landscape and forever change the lives of people. My father began to despair of Earth ever being peaceful. My parents even saw the beginnings of the Federation emerging. If they could only see it now. Despite popular belief, our presence did become known and accepted to a chosen few in the ranks of power and command in the Federation, it has ever been so. Then suddenly my race was gone, except for a few hapless survivors like me. I had only been a member of the High Council for about 50 years when they arrived....from the darkest reaches of space they came...swarming like bees to a hive....The Borg....annihilating everything in their path...Resistance is futile will always haunt my dreams. I contacted a friend I had long known who was now at Star fleet Command. She helped relocate me to my home on the coast of Ireland...secluded away from all the things I wanted to leave behind. I have continued my work in psychology and the space time continuum, occasionally being of use to Star fleet as long as they didn't make it public. Repeatedly, I have refused their request to become part of their organization, preferring as always to work on the periphery. It is only at the urgent request of a friend and my own inner voice haunting my sleep, that I find myself donning once more, a Starfleet uniform. This time with great trepidation.
The service record is missing a few things because I did not keep it fully up to date in the old database. This is most of it, but not all of it.
The El Aurian Silver Cross...for mediating a dispute between rival members of the high council thereby preventing a hostile faction from forming with in our race.

Personality & Traits
Cerywyn is not someone you want to annoy or make angry as many a Federation enemy has come to know. Her work ethic is intense, and she often expects the same of her crew. She will also step in when she thinks an officer has spent him or herself to the point of exhaustion. While she expects hard work, she also encourages down time as a tired crew is not a good crew. Her friends know her as a compassionate, caring individual - as does her crew. At the same time, when it comes to the Federation and Starfleet - she is all business. If she smiles in a meeting, that is not a good thing. She is an empath/telepath of the highest order - one who is well trained and extremely gifted. That said, she keeps her ability tightly controlled and does not intrude on anyone's thoughts - other than those passively floating on the surface. When needed however, she can and has brought the full force of her ability to bare usually to the detriment of her enemy who might have wished for death instead. She can be coldly and brutally efficient when the need arises. She will not take avoidable risks and she is known for breaking the rules and asking forgiveness later - especially when lives are at stake and can be saved.
Strengths & Weaknesses
Most medical history is classified but these two incidents are public knowledge.
239908.xx Broken arm in TL accident.
2400009.xx She was kidnapped and severely beaten and heavily drugged by Klael in an attempt to gain control of the Endeavour. Her face was nearly unrecognizable upon recovery and her arms and fingers so badly swollen that her hands and arm appeared as one. She has since recovered fully with few ill effects.
Her main weakness is her sense of loyalty and honor to her crew - her intense need to protect them from harm. Her greatest strength: the same intense need to protect her crew from harm. She will take all measures necessary to save a life - rather than to take it.
Ambitions to see the Federation and Starfleet thrive - her whole life has been given over to making sure the right people were in the right places at the right time...from the very beginning.until now.
Hobbies & Interests
Hobbies??? - Work...and then more work. She is an insatiable student of knowledge.
Research consisting of work with the space time continuum distortions and its effect of the neural paths of the brain. Received a doctorate of Psychology from the El Aurian University. She's also interesed in Old Earth Literature especially from the 18th and 19th century as well as classics such as Shakespeare and Milton. She's well versed in old Earth History, most notably that of the latter 19th and 20th centuries.
