Found as an infant on the abandoned colony, Babylon, she was raised in an orphanage on Earth. Of course as an non-human, many of the other orphans picked on her at any opportunity, but she was able to successfully defend herself in most cases. Her only true friend was a schoolmate of Bajoran descent. Once she reached the legal age of adulthood, she took the name of the colony she was found in, and joined Starfleet. Showing a traditional aptitude for tactics, she began her training to be an Tactical Officer.
