Personality & Traits

General Overview Shadi is very strong and imposing, though she strives to be as personable and friendly as possible. She is calm, cool, and collected at all times except for in the performance of her duties. Her impatience lends her a short temper and impatient approach to solving problems, which as often as not leads to damaged tools and instrumentation. Her balance between intensity and serenity is inimitable, as her enthusiasm and sincerity compels her to build and maintain friendship with everyone she meets.
Strengths & Weaknesses Shadi is physically fit, powerful, and durable. She can withstand extreme heat, various toxins, and poisonous gases, and several forms of radiation with minimal effect. Her close-quarters combat skills are nothing short of epic due to her family tradition, but she only resorts to violence as an absolute necessity. Shadi is naturally resistant to telepathy from most forms of humanoid species.

Shadi's temper can get the better of her when confronted with a difficult or complex problem. She is far from stupid, but her knowledge is born through experience rather than education. Instincts over protocols is her motto. She is susceptible to prolonged exposure to frigid temperatures, and also has a mild to moderate fear of the dark. Her piloting skills are atrocious with it being said that she could not crash a burning shuttle.
Ambitions Shadi desires to become friends with everyone she meets. Also, proving that Saurians are more than warriors and vintners.
Hobbies & Interests Shadi enjoys puzzles and mysteries, though preferably with the company and assistance of others. She is eager to attend any party or other social gathering.

Personal History Shadi descends from an ancient clan of honored warriors, known on Sauria as the Ragolar brood. When the Saurians ghosted their fleet after joining the Federation, Shadi's ancestors found themselves limited to the radically reduced police frigates who patrol their generally safe sector of space. Those who could not make the cut for police work often continued the family warrior tradition as thespians and entertainers.

Rather than become a stage actor or marry into a wealthy brewery to produce Saurian Brandy, Shadi joined Starfleet. After two failed entrance exams into the officer track at the Academy, Shadi pressed onward toward her goal and eventually entered the Starfleet Corps of Engineers as an enlisted engineer.

Due to her natural resistance to workplace hazards, Shadi was assigned to the tasks that would be strenuous or hazardous for her crewmates. Her expertise in maintenance work, along with her natural love of sorting puzzles, revealed her calling in the Operations division.
