Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Callsign: Red Death
Her mental Disposition: Is that of a cheery sort with a Very Dark and sometimes downright sick sense of humour, which is not always appreciated, like all personnel, but in a fight, she was as tough as the toughest Marine Starfleet had to offer since her transfer to ship duty and being granted a field commission of ensign her Dark side has begun to crack, her latest adventure has weakened the emotional barrier she placed to hold in a bad memory from her past, Also she is not fond of her middle name. Her Father has strong ties with the Klingon houses and as such affords him and his family a modicum of respect, although it is not the same as to another Klingon house. As a child Alexandria trained with Klingon weapons on Qo'noS and while not a Master level she is proficient with all Klingon weapons.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Strengths: Uncanny knack for getting out of tight situations, Loyal
Weakness: Like all Spec Ops personnel she has a dark side, she was never a diplomatic person, she spoke her mind and usually had a knack for upsetting other Marines, but it was usually in a good cause, Stubborn.
Dislikes: Many things, only one gets singled out and that's her dislike and distrust of Starfleet Intelligence, whom she blames for her fatal missions near failure.
Likes: Pizza, Lamb Kebabs, Old Cartoon, Romcoms and Musicals.
|Ambitions||To Make General someday|
|Hobbies & Interests||20th and early 21st Century music and clothes, combat simulations on the holodeck, rock climbing, reading,|
|Personal History||Alexandria Somers was born in the Eurasian Territories on Earth on 6th August 2355, she has been a life-long friend of Paul Sharpe and has seen his softer more human side. She excelled at basic training and passed her specialist training in record time, her base point average would have gotten her a commission to 2nd Lt, but she was not interested in a commission so she concentrated on Recon and Demolitions. Her Father has strong ties with the Klingon's as Federation Ambassador and as such affords him and his family a modicum of respect as a family of warriors. As a child Alexandria trained with Klingon weapons on Qo'noS and while not a Master level she is proficient with all Klingon weapons.
In time she found that she was good at it, on her first mission, she was assigned to a more experienced Infiltration Team, this team had the job of taking out an Orion Syndicate Assassin, who had killed some important Federation Citizens. The mission was classed under the Plausible Deniability clause, this meant if they failed the team should they survive would be on their own. As it was the job was successful, Alexandria created and planted a focused explosive to the underside of the Assassins bed, the end results was broken windows and a smear of DNA matter spread through the destroyed room, the Assassin was one of the Syndicates best, his death shook them as they never found out who had done it.
The team upon return to Federation Space was split up, Alexandria found herself posted to Betazed, she never saw he teammates again, eventually, she ended up on the USS Independence on Detached Assignment as the Liaison between Starfleet Security and the Marines. She wore standard SFMC uniform, but she had a shoulder patch that other marines do not have, it was an SSO SFMC Division Patch, which she had to removed when she was posted to the Independence-A, she now wears a Standard Starfleet Uniform with Green shirt.
After her stint in Special Operations, she joined her Cousin's regiment, the 95th Rifles SFMC, where she earned her white cord of courage, which she proudly wears at the base of her shoulders on her duty uniform and when in Dress Uniform a white cord on her uniform upper left arm sleeve. While she has transferred from the Rifle regiment, through postings, like all earned awards, she is entitled to wear the white cord. Even though outside of the Rifles the decoration is a passing idle curiosity. Now she does standard SFMC duties but she will always remember her time in the Rifles as she looks forward to the future.
Brief Division Description
The Starfleet Special Operations are an Elite section of the Starfleet Marine Corps, they are trained to do things and go places that normal Starfleet Marines cannot do, like all other personnel they can be re-assigned, to any Outpost or ship. This is standard, but usually, when a Top Secret Mission goes wrong, the Marines involved get moved to Regular Starfleet Marines, whether if it's their fault or not, but those Marines are still bound by the Confidentiality of their Spec Ops Past. Alexandria knows certain things that other Regular Senior Starfleet Officers do not, this is only because she was once a Spec Ops Operative herself. Only the head of the Starfleet Marines can divulge what all Spec Ops Marines know.
Now Alex is a Regular Line Marine Officer, but she still has her training...
Fatal Mission Outline
While she was a Marine, she and a Starfleet Special Operations team were sent on a mission to destroy a facility that was genetically breeding enhanced Telepaths, one of the key sides to this were the Reman's. The start of the mission and execution was textbook, but as things usually happen, the exit from the doomed base went south. One of the Genetically Enhanced Telepaths got loose and scrambled one of the Marines minds, this Marine was a close friend of Alex, she had fallen victim and was dead before she hit the ground. Alex broke down and tried to wake her, if not for an Andorian teammate dragging her away, all would have been captured. The enhanced Telepath was destroyed along with the facility, on the return to Federation space Alex was quiet and had withdrawn into herself.
After her debriefing, she was assigned to the USS Independence, she had been classed unfit for the work she normally did due to the botched black Ops mission, so she became the Marine Liasion to the Security on a Starship, this is where her real story begins......... Flight Skills While being able to fly a Maul fighter, Alexandria's main flight qualifications lay in Shuttles, any shuttles currently used by Starfleet she can fly without a problem. She prefers shuttles to a fighter, so is never quick to volunteer for Fighter duty.
