Lieutenant Vespa Kale
Name Vespa Kale
Position Chief Science Officer
|Hair Color||White (Dyed Blonde)|
|Physical Description||Both of the women named Vespa Kale look identical, from eye color to fur color to hair color, and bear a resemblance to an evolved and humanoid version of the Earth creature known as an 'ermine'. The pair stand at 5'8" each, with long hair, generous figures, and a thick furred tail trailing behind them. Each of them serving as a distraction for the other as they go about their day to day lives.
Soft and friendly, Vespa's blue eyes dazzle in any light, though some would be put off by her mouthful of rather sharp teeth, and while her hands show signs of vestigial claws, they're hardly more then just something to paint.
The pair are practically inseparable, always walking together as a pair. Everywhere they go, the two of them are together. This is due to the traits of the Dalacari.
Every Dalacari birth results in twins, and those twins are linked via a low-level telepathic bond, forming before their bodies finish forming in the womb. They believe that their souls are too big for one body, and therefore they are all twins, born with a best friend and confidant.
They've been known to finish each others sentences, talk in unison, walk in unison, and trade tasks effortlessly. They both respond to their name, "Vespa Kale".
|Children||None Yet. Vespa is hesitant to entertain the prospect of children with non-Delacari, as all Delacari births result in twins. Not every species is so lucky|
|Other Family||A rather extensive family on either family side.|
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Vespa is inquisitive, kind, and understanding... especially in situations where folks are born all by their lonesome. She loves puzzles, especially mazes, since she starts at both ends and meets in the middle rather then going from start to end. As a binary lifeform she can approach situations from two angles, and can often offer at least two points of view. This causes people to often think she's opinionated. At least, that's what she read in the books.
She's very warm and friendly, and can quickly become friends with someone provided they're looking for a new friend. She has a reserved personality but can easily be convinced to go on the most ludicrous adventures, either on the holodeck or in the wide open spaces.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||One would think that having two physical bodies would be a huge benefit, but it means that Vespa technically consumes twice as much water, air, and food as any singular person. She can literally have two points of view of any subject, and can do the work of two people, but can still only come to one final opinion.
Vespa cannot bear to be separated from her other self for long, and often grows uncertain or just incredibly insular until the two of her are reunited. Once united, though, she can multitask like nobody else.
|Ambitions||Vespa's ambitions are simple. Do her job, take studious notes, make plenty of friends, and find happiness. She doesn't dream to be captain, or admiral. She has realistic dreams. Often too solidly rooted in fact.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Vespa likes to read in her spare time, and write reviews for the books she's read. She enjoys trying new things, and at times can be something of a thrill seeker, though she tends to shy away from singular events, or events that could separate her binary selves. She loves literature, as well as group activities. To further her career, and her literary library, Vespa speaks English, Vulcan, Klingon, Cardassian, and Ferenginar.
She also enjoys a touch of recreational chemistry, though nothing illegal.
|Personal History||As the Dalacari are an asspiring ally race with the Federation at the moment, Vespa was sent along with a small number of fellow Dalacarin to Academy. Once there, her exotic looks made her several new friends, especially since there were two of her (Or that's what everyone kept saying). At Academy, she excelled in mathematics and most branches of sciences, especially chemistry and the many tracks of chemistry.
Vespa had a small run in with Academy security when she was found to be engineering various offshoots of the caffeine molecule tailored to various species. Technically not a stimulant, or a narcotic, it was designed to help various students stay awake for various tests. She was asked kindly not to perform such actions again, and as a result of the chat there was no permanent mark in her record. Though a record of the incident was filed as supporting documentation. The truth is, chemistry has always come naturally to her.
