Character Details (Official Use Only)
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Tor is no-nonsense when it comes to duty. She knows her job and does it well, and expects the same from others around her. She has a keen sense of humour, is much more relaxed off-duty and happy to socialize with the crew.
Note: this character had belonged to a player no longer with this simm...left before the move to Zulu fleet, her user info lost in the move.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths: Tor has an incredible depth of knowledge, thanks to the varied experiences of her previous hosts, as well as an eidetic memory. She is strong-willed and it takes a lot to get her down. She is blessed with the ability to think outside the box and this has proven invaluable to her at times.
Weaknesses: She has a temper, and her unorthodox thinking has, on occasion, been a source of contention with those who think more linearly and ’by the book’.
|Ambitions||It is thanks to hard work and determination that she worked her way up to Second Officer at the age of 28. A tragic ambush has now but her in the XO’s seat and she is determined to serve there to the best of her ability. She is not averse to her own command one day, but wants some time in the right-hand seat to gain more experience.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Tor loves poker with a passion, thanks to a previous host, and it had been a regular activity with her, Adara, River, and their previous CO. She enjoys rock climbing on the holodeck, as well as mechanical puzzles to test her wits and keep her sharp on engineering-type matters. She plays billiards well, and is an accomplished dancer in the classical ballet style, a talent encouraged by another previous host.

|Personal History||Gaelan Barros was born in 2358 to a Starfleet family. Her father was an Engineer, her mother a surgeon. At the time, they were en route to the Trill homeworld for furlough after a long run by the Neutral Zone. She jokes that being in space is in her blood, and that had proven to be true.
Thanks to her father, she discovered her love of all things mechanical at an early age and delighted in disassembling and reassembling things in the family quarters. She left the ship in her teens to study on the homeworld at the Trill Science Academy, a decision that would change the course of her life. A report was sent on Gaelan to the Symbiosis Commission who kept watch on her as she progressed.
Starfleet Academy came and went, where she studied Engineering with a specialty in warp theory. Upon her graduation in 2379, she returned to the Trill homeworld for evaluation and joining with the Tor symbiont. After the usual adjustment period, she was assigned to the USS Valiant as an Engineering officer. She served there for four years, achieving the position of Lieutenant. She then transferred to the USS Armstrong as its Second Officer and SCE Team leader with a promotion to Lieutenant Commander.
The ambush of the Armstrong, and the loss of so many of its crew meant time odd-duty as the ship was repaired and the new Commanding Officer appointed. She was promoted to Executive Officer to serve under Carter Hall.
