Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Delphine is a bright, sunny young woman, the definition of a fun girl. She likes to keep her life as low tech as possible due to growing up in her grandfather's village on Kauai, though as a scientist she does love technology, just not in the house. After being the "most popular girl at the party" all during the Academy, she met the love of her life on her first assignment and is hopelessly devoted to her wife, Kali. A loyal friend and a kind ear to those in need, very few can say that their experience was made worse by knowing her.|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths:
-Genius Level IQ
-Great Physical Endurance
-Survival Skill, Especially Low Tech
-Can Get So Comfortable She Doesn't Move For Extended Periods
-Likes Liquor More Than It Likes Her
|Ambitions||Career ambitions aren't really that big a deal to Delphine, if she never gets promoted again, that's fine with her. For her it's all about the science and, since she got placed into a counseling post, the people.|
|Hobbies & Interests||All things water related: swimming, fishing, surfing, sailing, scuba diving, anything to be in the blue.
War gaming: Delphine has a massive collection of toy soldiers and has won tournaments recreating and fighting in historical battles. Her prized army is an Andorian Imperial Guard force from the early 2100's.
|Personal History||Delphine was born into a military family on the French Betazoid side and a family living in the old style on the Hawaiian side. A natural free spirit she fit better with the lifestyle of her mother's family more easily than the upper crust French and Betazoid on her father's side, though she's close to her family on both sides. From the beginning it was clear Delphine's first love would always be the ocean and all the creatures within, her name actually means Dolphin in French and she's addressed in her village exclusively as Little Dolphin, so it was no surprise to anyone when she started taking an interest in Marine science at an early age. Always out to prove that anything any of her male relatives could do she could do just as well, Delphine made an athletic mark for herself as a wide receiver and kick returner on the football team at Jack Lord High School, the long time Alma Mater of the Anakahe clan, breaking her older brother's records for most receptions in one game and longest touchdown catch.
Growing up a Starfleet Brat almost ensured that Delphine's next stop would be Starfleet Academy, following in the footsteps of her twin older siblings. While at the Academy she was known for being brilliant but somewhat lazy and was more likely to be found at a party at night than in bed, earning her the nickname Lady Dracula. While there she became very close to one of her professors, Lt. Cdr. Karl Loomis, with whom she still shares an almost paternal bond.
The best thing to occur for Delphine after graduation happened right away, when she was assigned as a Junior Science Officer on the USS Atalanta in 2419 where she met and fell hard for the Andorian IG officer assigned as their CMO, Lt. Kali nas-Kull, who, parenthetically, is responsible for her unique look. After a short separation by duty, they were reunited in 2422 and not separated since, marrying in 2423 while on the USS Cousteau.
