Personal History Ashlie was born on Earth to her father Kamil and her mother Kiran. She was the second child of three born to the couple, who were fairly easy going with their parenting styles.

Growing up was not an easy thing for Ashlie, as she was always compared to her sister. Her sister was an amazing singer and dancer, and Ashlie felt like she always had two left feet. Unfortunately, Kiran started to favor Ajal over her other children, and this wasn’t something that her father could handle. When Ashlie was seven, Kamil and Kiran divorced and she was taken with her brother by her father to a new home.

This was a complete shock to Ash’s system, and it took her quite some time to adjust. Luckily, she was not compared to anyone here, and could forge her own path. She soon found herself overly protective of not only her younger brother, but of all her friends and classmates. If someone was being picked on, she would find some way to protect them. The bullies went after her too at that point, but this did not change what she was doing. She didn’t know where this sudden need to protect others came from, but it was a part of her now and she wasn’t going to let it go.

When she was thirteen, after helping out a few of the younger children that were being pushed around by others twice their size, she found herself quickly shoved against a wall with a cracking sound. The older bullies had become tired of her defending the others and wanted to put an end to it. She could feel herself falling unconscious, but also knew that there would be no one there to help the others if something happened to her. She took hold of the hands that were holding her against the wall and managed to loosen them just enough to slip away. The younger ones came to her rescue, one of them having run off to get a teacher.

Although Ash was sent to the hospital with a severe head injury, she was awarded a medal once she returned to school for defending those who could not defend themselves.

The rest of the time she spent seemed to fly by, and though she never seemed to catch anyone’s eye and no one caught her’s, she seemed to enjoy all of the close friendships that she had. And after being unsure what she wanted to do once she was out of school, Starfleet caught her eye. Not only traveling through the stars, but being able to protect others.

Ash applied for and was accepted into Starfleet Academy Tactical and Security as well as Science. During even her first day, she realized how much smaller muscle wise she was compared to the others and how much work she actually had to do to keep up with the Tactical and Security side of things. Any time she was caught up on her coursework, she could be found training. Whether it be weapons training or physical training, she was doing her best to catch up. At night, she could be found sitting in one of the science labs looking at quite a bit of stellar phenomenon.

But for the first time in her life in the middle of her second year, someone else caught her eye, and she seemed to have caught theirs. Another Tactical and Security cadet, Riny Sander, could be seen in the gyms or the weapons trainings whenever Ash was. A fling quickly started, and they seemed to be perfect together. Though, he didn’t seem too interested in her going off to do her science training. Even her roommate jokingly started saying they should just get married and be done with it.

The fling continued through the rest of her years at the Academy, and when graduation hit, what Ash’s roommate had been saying for almost three years ended up happening: Riny asked Ash to marry him. Their wedding was shortly after while they were both awaiting ship assignments.

Unfortunately, due to having applied to ships before they were married, they were assigned separately. They knew this was a possibility with them both being from the same area of Starfleet, but hoped it would not pull them apart.

Ash was assigned to the USS Jothi as a security officer and, at times, science officer, stuffed amongst many others. She was just a lowly ensign and wasn’t given much in the way of duties other than standard security rounds and sitting in a lab. On a ship, this became repetitive. She did, however, manage to keep in touch with her husband the best she could while they served on seperate ships.

Two years into her posting on the Jothi, she was moved to a higher science position, spending more time on the bridge with only the occasional security shift. She couldn’t decide which she liked better, but embraced both. Before finding that she was up for a new posting, she was granted a promotion to Lieutenant Junior Grade.

During shore leave in 2381 before she was to move to a new posting, Ashlie finally was going to get extended time alone with Riny. 4 years on separate ships only seeing each other on occasion made marriage hard, but she thought they had made it work. Arriving where she was supposed to meet Riny at, Ash was surprised to not find him there. Locating where he was, she started to get concerned when she found that he was at one of the hospitals.

However, it wasn’t anything like what she thought. Arriving at the hospital and giving her name, she was pointed in the direction of the maternity ward. Anger started to grow as she followed the path there. She could see him going into one of the rooms and knew her face grew red as she walked over to the door and knocked on it, as she wasn’t one to burst in. Being allowed entrance, Riny’s eyes went wide the moment he saw who it was.

He tried to plead his case out in the hallway, but the fact that he was there as the father of the woman who was in labor in the room, and he admitted to her that he was, she angrily threw her wedding ring at him and left, filing for divorce a few short hours after. Having been loyal to him with the few times they’d been able to be together over the last four years, she didn’t realize that he hadn’t given her the same respect. She changed her name back to Eider as soon as she was able to.

Trying to get away from everything she just dealt with, she looked for a place to start fresh. The USS Nakato had a science officer opening and she jumped at the chance to be out in space again, and away from tactical and security, seeing as that was what had moved her to her now ex-husband in the first place.

Science full time was a nice change of pace, and it allowed her to get her mind off of things that had just happened on Earth. She was able to get used to how things worked in science again, and found she enjoyed not only looking out at the stars, but finding out what could be out there. She had the occasional bridge shift, mostly at night, which messed with how her mind wanted her sleep schedule to be. After a couple months however, she finally was able to adjust.

Three years later, and a promotion out of Junior Grade to full Lieutenant, Ash found a place that was looking for an assistant chief science officer. Not one to give up on this chance, and wanting to still expand her science abilities, she applied for the USS Zeva and was granted the spot.

The Zeva did a lot more exploration than the Nakato did, and with her position, she was able to spend more time on the bridge when things were actually happening. She was able to go on more away missions as the science officer and not just someone extra. It was now that Ashlie wondered why she ever went into the Tac/Sec positions in the first place, beyond wanting to protect others.

However, with no real advancement seeming to be available on the Zeva since the chief science officer was comfortable in their spot, Ash decided she would head back to Earth for a bit. She hadn’t been back since her divorce 7 years prior, and she did miss it. She took the time to not only visit family, but take advantage of some command level training. She knew this wasn’t the reason she couldn’t find any chief positions, however, she felt like perhaps expanding her knowledge on some things and understanding what command level officers went through.

To say it was eye opening was an understatement. But, too much family wasn’t always a good thing. Although she hadn’t been actually staying at home, seeing her family almost daily was too much, as they continued to try to ask about when she’d start a family. They didn’t care about the fact that she’d gone through the mess of a divorce she did, and only wanted most people added to the family. Annoyed with that, and not finding any positions on Earth that interested her, she went looking for other spots.

A position she hadn’t really thought about until she saw it came up: chief science officer on a starbase. That could bring up so many different opportunities for her, and she jumped at it.
