|Personal History||Aaris was born on earth in Chicago, Illinois to Aaron and Cinnamon Parry on July 8th, 2364. She was the youngest and only girl of three siblings.
Growing up Aaris found herself in a constant struggle with her older siblings whom would tease her daily, often placing her at the butt end of practical jokes. As she grew older and more self aware she realized that her brothers were doing these things as a sign of her perceived weakness. While her mother would always sympathize with her tearful daughter, her father and the boys would isolate her from hunting trips. Aaris longed to participate in the family activity and bond with her male kin, but she knew if she was going to do it she was going to need to push back. She would begin to observe her brothers more catching them in their antics prior to their fruition. She found ways to reverse the tricks and place the embarrassment solely on her siblings. There would be retribution for her new found sass, but Aaris continued fighting.
When she reached the age of 13, she would reap the rewards of her fighting. Her brothers would now turn full circle and began to act as protectors. Perceived 'threats' at school from boys teasing her to some looking for a piece would find themselves at the wrong end of the brother's scorn. She began to understand that her brothers were simply toughening her up, they needed to be able to trust her if they would take her out on the hunts. They needed to know she would act when required. At 14, Aaris downed her first bear.
When she came of age at 18, Aaris was finished with the challenges Earth could provide her and wished for more. This was when she joined Starfleet as a Marine.
Aaris entered Camp Pendleton for basic training as an Officer Cadet which would be followed by a stint at Starfleet Marine Officer Candidate School. The combined training would last just over two years and would prepare Lindsay for the challenges she would face as a Marine Officer. She would leave the Officer Candidate school a graduate with the rank of Second Lieutenant.
|Service Record||2Lt Parry's first assignment would be aboard the USS Renaissance as a Platoon Commander. Her assignments would include aiding security with daily watch shifts. Providing reconnaissance on any ground missions assigned to the ship and providing regular training exercises to her platoon to keep their skills honed. While the assignment was not particularly stressful it provided her the building blocks for leading marines on a Starfleet vessel. Her good work provided her with a promotion to 1st Lieutenant.
Aaris's second assignment was aboard the USS Napoleon tasked at the time with quelling a Maquis rebellion on an outlying federation colony. As a Company commander, 1LT Parry was to provide the embattled colony with ground force support to prevent the constant raiding and pillaging upon the colony by the Maquis. It was noted she expertly provided superior defensive support with intelligent placement of fire teams and superior reconnaissance efforts providing key information to the Marine CO greatly improving their tactics and mitigating losses.
With the rebellion successfully quelled, 1LT Parry was placed on a year long Advanced Reconnaissance course with a carefully selected team to participate in an upcoming trial for the corps. The team would first begin with a theory portion of reconnaissance before moving into scenarios and learning to operate as a single unit.
Upon successful completion of the course, Aaris took what she learned and was assigned to the USS Tomcat.
