Major Zhy'len Tarias is a Starfleet Marine Corps officer serving as the Marine Commanding Officer of Charlie Company, assigned to the USS Shiloh in the latter half of the 24th century.


History

As a young girl, Tarias was never really interested in joining Starfleet, instead enlisting in the Andorian Defense Force. However, with Andoria's position in the Federation, this was little more than a militia. After a few years, however, and the rising threat of the Federation's enemies, she enrolled in the UFP military academy to become an officer in the Federation Marine Corps, and graduated in time to have a a very successful career during the Dominion War.

Like all Aenar, Tarias was born blind. However, with modern optical implants, and her own telepathic abilities, she easily overcame this obstacle. The Aenar have a strict law about reading someone's mind without consent, but that didn't stop Tarias from using her abilities to aid her in combat. By being able to detect the presence of other individuals, this lead to her becoming an expert in small group tactics, and she embarked on many commando missions throughout her career.

Personality Overview

Strengths & Weaknesses

Physically, Tarias stays fit by constant training. She was born blind, but that is only a weakness if her implants fail. The ocular implants allows her to have a larger realm of vision, including night vision and infrared. Her limited telepathic ability originally allowed her to adjust for her eyesight issues, but she honed her ability for use in combat as a form of mental sonar. She sometimes becomes too reliant on this ability, and can damage her ability in combat if she can not adjust.
