Physical Description: Kit is what many would consider a typical Betazoid. Her skin is slightly olive-toned, and her eyes are so dark a brown as to appear almost black, with the usual Betazoid solid pupils. Her face is oval, with high cheekbones. Her nose is well-formed and her mouth is usually unsmiling, as if she takes everything seriously. Her figure is neat, and she exudes an air of confidence and professionalism.
Family and Background
A Daughter of the Seventh House (House of Courage). Kit's parents were both Starfleet officers and Kit benefited from an early life spent travelling with her parents. She developed her Betazoid abilities unusually early, and consequently was taken back to Betazed to live with her grandmother whilst receiving the necessary training to harness her abilities, as well as induction in the Telepathic Moral Laws. Although her telepathic abilities are very high, Kit showed no other signs of genius and consequently had to work hard to achieve the high academic results that she wanted. Once she had established sufficient control over her abilities to satisfy her teachers, Kit spent most of her holidays with her parents and consequently grew up as a 'Starfleet brat'. At 23, she decided to follow her parents into Starfleet, and chose to specialise in Operations, which came as a surprise to her parents, both of whom work as counsellors.
Educated largely on Betazed, though also partly on Starfleet vessels until the time came for her to go to university, where she read Computer Science and Psychology, graduating with joint honours.
Entered Starfleet directly after graduating.
Four years at Starfleet Academy, specialising in Operations and programming. Since graduating she has served on two ships prior to the Mithrandir, the USS Star of Samarkand, a sovereign-class vessel loyal to Doenitz, and the ill-fated Dennison under Captain Stakes.
"Note:" Kit's own feelings on the war and her parents internment by Doenitz loyalists for the duration, she has not shared.
Nothing of note
High telepathic ability, coupled with a very well-developed ability to block telepathic communication or reading from others. Follows the Telepathic Moral Laws to the letter, and despises those who abuse their abilities.
Extremely skilled computer programmer. (Denies she was 'the hacker of class 47')
Card games with friends; writing computer and holodeck programs.
Likes to relax with friends over a good meal, particularly if there is a good wine to accompany it.
Works hard, plays hard. Kit has been described as a martinet at work and a good companion off duty. She keeps work and play rigidly separate, although she can get on well with almost anyone on a social level. She has a slightly quirky sense of humour and often finds things amusing which others don't, although she rarely lets this show whilst on duty. A bit of a sticker for regulations, which she believes are there for a purpose, she has been known to bend them on the odd occasion when the situation warranted it.
Cattia Spero is played by Liz Geuken.
