Furcadia Name: Zemara Prime
Character Name: Zemara Prime
Position applying for: Medical
Character Description: Zemara is a human female, originating from Montana, USA on Earth, and is new to Starfleet. She is a light-skinned girl, and rather short (only 5 ft tall), but is still strong from working on her family's farm. Since she has 7 other brothers--her being the only sister--she had to learn how to defend herself. She was frequently teased by her brothers about her height, and gets hostile if it is mentioned.
She has blue eyes and, originally, blond hair, but she frequently dyes it blue to match her eyes. Her favorite pastime is horseback riding. She learned from a young age how to ride, her Grandpa Icus sitting her bareback on their old draft horse, Marley, before she even knew how to walk. She also loves studying plants, and is especially curious about those on other planets.
She's still in the academy, just starting out as a Cadet. Her desired position is Medical, since she loved studied folk healing and herbal medicine from her grandparents and great-grandparents as a child. Wanting to expand her medical knowledge, and being a hyper young lady, she decided to join Starfleet. It is her goal in life to learn about the physiology of alien races and how to treat their illnesses and diseases.
Sample RP Post: Zemara took a deep breath to calm her nerves. Another test was about to commence. There was so many in Starfleet. One would think she'd proven herself by now, but again her instructors wanted proof. Quite irritating, she thought.
As the holodeck opened, she and her fellow classmates gasped at the sight. They were on Risa. Apparently, there had been a cave-in in one of their research facilities. Humans, Vulcans, and Risian casualties were pinned below the huge rocks.
A moaned woke her out of her reverie. "...H-heelllp......meee...." came from a female Risian in a back corner. Thankfully, Zemara's tiny frame allowed her to squeeze in the tight crevice to rescue her. As she neared the injured female, she could see that her leg was snapped completely in two, so severe that it looked as if she had an extra joint. Zemara swallowed hard, keeping bile from coming up in her throat at the sight.
She grabbed her med kit and spoke softly to calm the victim down. "Hush now, I'm here to help you," she said, grabbing a hypospray and injecting a local pain killer into the woman's bloodstream. Hearing a sigh as the female started to relax, she called to her fellow cadets to come and help. "Marcy, I need your help," she cried to her friend, "Support her leg as we carry her away from the rubble." Her friend rushed over, gently cradling the woman's legs to keep from injuring her further. They lowered the woman onto a blanket on the facility floor as other students came to patch her up and rescue the other living victims.
A gust of cold air came into the holodeck as her instructor stepped in. A smile crossed his face. "Well done, Cadet Prime," he said, his eyes lighting up.
"Thank you, sir," she replied, simply happy that she helped save another life. Well, even if it was just a test.
