Personality & Traits

General Overview Faith is certainly headstrong, intelligent, outspoken. Even to a fault. At times will not take flak from anyone, including Brass and senior officers. There is a point between right and wrong, even bending or breaking the rules he will take depending on the situation.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths: Her will, determination, strength. Her loyalty is probably his most defining quality, which also makes it a weakness. Even with her weakness' because of what she's been through. As much as he gets pushed, he can 'nearly' always keep a calm head.

Weaknesses: Stubborn, her loyalty, once its earned in her eyes. Her passion. She has underlining demons she keeps hidden, which make her vulnerable depending on the situation. That being pushed can even make her volatile and dangerous.
Ambitions Get as good as she can and then push even farther. Law is what she is working on, she loves that. Been doing so on her own time because she wanted to pass her bar and become a JAG officer other than what she did, one of the best snipers in Starfleet. Which she did pass as the bar, having being a JAG officer under her belt. There is the sniper part, maybe not be the best sniper out there, but she was certainly damned good. One to be rivaled. She's also been a very accomplished pilot. Always has been. Ever since she was little, ten years old. Not just modern craft but 20th century planes and helicopters.
Hobbies & Interests Actual hobbies, she loves to cook and eat food. Playing the Violin and singing. Mysteries, be it real or holo-novels she can not get enough of. Writing them are also a large interest, as well as writing on real paper and trying to publish books. Building things as well. Taking them apart, putting them back together. Improving on the designs. Doesn't always work out, but she tries. Archery is another, as are ballistic weapons, or any weapons for that matter, as well as Martial Arts. Law is another still.

Personal History Faith figured she would begin with mentioning the first known contact with my species to Earth was in 1893 by the USS Enterprises Guinan. Though it was mostly her just reliving events through her life. She did that sometimes, particularly when she felt the touch of time and space. She personally didn't know how long she had been there. The report of that incident is in the Enterprise-D mission logs. We're, her race, majorily are well traveled people, not quite like Earths nomads. Many settled down some where. Others just enjoy the travel. Place to place. Also the nickname of being a race of listeners. There is an uncanny knack for empathy and sense of time and space.

Around 2265 is when we were all but wiped out by the Borg. Which didn't help upon us being scattered and traveling, given we have no home planet anymore. We resisted them, though obviously that did not work out to well. Another incident of course has to do with the Enterprise-B which Faith was part of that group where Captain James T. Kirk was thought to be killed, and then again 2365 and the Soran incident.

Devidian temporal vortexes have a particularly harming effect on El-Aurians because of well..something to do with our physiology. Most of us are advisors, confidants, councelors, due to our ability, and others can use those, more...or less legal activities.

Another thing suggested is knowing when something is not right with a particular turn of events, such as. Yes, Faith remembering the Enterprise. Guinan knowing that Lieutenant Tasha Yar was not suppose to be on the ship because of the alteration made by the Enterprise-C.

And then there is the Nexus. In fact she remembered she was on one of the two ships that were rescued by the Enterprise-B. It really is true bliss. Everything one can dream of, think of. It even seems to read your mind to give you what it thinks you desire or need.

Since that time, most of herself and the last of her race have accepted the fact without killing millions they will never get back there. Moved on. Contrary to her race, she'd always found an affinity for tactical thinking and helping protect people.
