Name Josefina (Joe) Palermo Macapuno
Position Marine Officer

|Hair Color||Bright Bronze|
|Eye Color||Dark Brown|
|Physical Description||Loves to wear her hair longer than what Marine Regulations call for. With light brown skin, that has a touch of honey, dark brown eyes, and arched cheekbones, she has that aura that sometimes makes men turn around.
Off Duty, she wears tight clothes, preferring the biker look of the 21st century, leather pants, bras, tank tops, and a black leather jacket characteristic of the biker mama's. She is comfortable in tanker boots, high heels or wearing what is still called flip flops. Sometimes she wears a short knee length Mu-Mu, letting her long hair out.
Still a girly girl, Joe loves all types of makeup, and sometimes the products overflow her tiny medicine cabinets, massage, Risan neck/back massage, and many off-world massage styles.

|Personal History||Joe has always had a hard life, but with a loving family, though she never said who she really liked for a partner, it was mostly other girls, a few guys; but generally she liked other women.
A Bit of a book worm who liked to keep to herslf surrounding herself with her prized collections of 1st edition books by Doyle, and within the last year she had been collecting a few books by Louisa May Alcott. More of an easy going soul, she generally detests figihting, but with her personal history; she decided to go into the Marines. AT least if she died, no one would have anything to say about her strange predilection for women. Though not a Lesbian, she was what 22nd earth would call a Pansexual; "one who likes both men and women" but is not attracted to one sex.
With one uncle who is still alive, a retired Marine General; three uncles who were all Marines, and who all died during the Dominion War, andan an aunt who while serving in Starfleet Medical during the war, also died. With a military family, and the tradition of service, Joe tried to follow in their foot steps and failed miserably. Joining the Marines she was nearly booted out of the Academy for poor grades, but manage to hang in there. Then when she went to the School of Infantry, she failed the first time, and was recycled and sent to another training brigade the second time. Having passed its strenuous course of study, she barely passed, but she was now on the path to become a Marine just like her uncles. However when she was sent to the 28th Marine Military Police Brigade (Corrctions) on Rura Penthe, she managed to land an office job in administration.
However her much older Uncle Patricio who was born 9 months after her fathers birth had been keeping secret tabs on his niece. Uncle Patricio was an old fashioned retired Marine General (Dominion War Vet) who believed that office jobs were for civilians only; and that every Marine all belonged on the front lines. So when he heard through channels that his only niece was now with the 25th MARDIV on Cardassia, and found that she had managed to land an administrative job. Shocked to find her wasting her time going over records, he made several calls to friends who owed him favors, and within a few month after she had been at Cardassia, Joe found herself with new orders to Starbase 51, and the 95th Rifles.
