- Dolen, Not married, but living together
Tikal grew up on Romulus. When she was old enough to understand her own feelings she felt close to men, but not in a sexual way. She never understood her attraction to women growing up and was quiet about it. She was part of a wealthy, upscale family with Reman servants. The Remans had a daughter whom she was close to growing up. Tikal finally decided to explore her feelings with her friend/servant Dolen. When she explored it, it was as if a whole new avenue opened up to her. She felt this was the way she should be. Dolen too had similar feelings. Dolen's parent's approved since it was a way to stick it to their Romulan Masters. Tikal's parents were not enthused. They felt it was a phase, but Tikal never grew out of it. After her parents were ready to send her to Remus if she didn't change her relationship, TIkal found a way to keep her relationship with Dolen a secret. She entered the Romulan Imperial Academy and graduated with flying colors. However she had a panache for Diplomatics. Despite her best efforts, the Empire discovered her feelings for the same sex and instead of executing her or banishing her remall of her privileges for it would be difficult to explain to a changing Romulan populace, they decided to send her to Starfleet to get her out of their hair. She was given "orders" to learn all she could about the Federation. They don't care what she does as long as she stays with the Federation.
