Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Because of her dual heritage, Valkris is used to being an outsider. Many would assume that her temper and eagerness for a fight comes from her Klingon Father and not her Human mother. The part of her personality that makes her think before she acts and to analyze a situation makes her appear cautious and calculating, traits she inherited from her father. Valkris sense of duty, determination and sense of humor she inherited from her mother. Those under her command found her hard and unforgiving but also very inspirational and insightful|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Valkris's ability to take on multiple duties and acquire skills across a broad spectrum of disciplines is probably her greatest strength. She has a strong bond with her family and friends but the bond between she and her half sister Kali, is even greater. Valkris being Human/Klingon is very sensitive to other's attempts to discriminate against her because she identifies more closely with her Klingon heritage. She often in the past has gone to great lengths to avenge her "honor" at the most miniscule of slights she perceives. This has sometimes proven to be a distraction in her duties and a mark in her permanent record*|
|Ambitions||Honor, Sacrifice, and Duty are three values that all that are raised in the Klingon culture live their lives by. To not only live an Honorable life in service and sacrificing one's own personal ambitions, is the duty of all Klingons.
Valkris has served as an Operations Officer, Marine CO in the Klingon Defense Forces, and now back serving Star Fleet as Chief Tactical/ Security Officer and Second Officer. She like her sister seek glory through service to the Empire, even though her path has taken her back to Star Fleet. She wants to be the first female Klingon Star Fleet Captain
|Hobbies & Interests||Valkris Keeps in constant contact with her Human side of her family on Mars and Terra and her fiancÃ©e Lieutenant Commander. Mek'tor Ro'Vaas, who's serving as Executive Officer on board the USS Paladin. She Studies Military tactics and doctrine and trains in the Klingon Internal Martial arts to help control her temper.

The Terrible tSepeS sisters:
Born in 2351 to Janice Edwardson, a visiting Star Fleet Academy instructor and Maal tSepeS, a Klingon cultural atache' assigned to liaison with educators from both Star Fleet Academy and the Vulcan Science Academy. Janice and Maal met, fell in love and from this, Janice became pregnant with her first child. things would have been ideal had Maal not already had a mate who was also pregnant. Janice returned to where she gave birth to Valkris T. Edwardson. Maal on the other hand was busy with his wife Arizhel who gave birth to a girl named Kali, after his father's sister.
After a number of years, Maal's wife learned of the affair and sought out Janice at first to kill her and her "bastard" child. Janice and Arizhel eventually overcame their differences with each other and became friends, Arizhel invited Janice to raise Valkris on Qo'nos with her half sister Kali.
Once the two girls reached the age of ascension (14) they both entered the Imperial Academy where they graduated four years later and began their advanced training studies. Janice was able to pull some strings and have the girls now 18 admitted to Star Fleet's junior cadet Officer's training school as exchange students.
[Personal evaluation/History- KDC]
These two tSepeS sister's are almost more trouble than they're worth. going from relatively unremarkable cadets to what they've become in just a few short years. Drinking like veteran warriors, hurling insults at one another and crew members alike. They are always ready, willing and able to fight for the honor of the Empire, their Captain and each other. They are also willing to fight their Captain, their crew mates and each other for their honor.
Both served in the Klingon/Federation officer Exchange program. Valkris as a Macco officer and Tactical Officer/ Specialist. Kali as Pilot, and Chief Helmsman.
It is rumored that these two Hell raising sisters, have some very influential benefactors in both the High Council and the Military leadership. These rumors have been denied by them of course and any attempts to discover what if any, that link may be has led to some very interesting and unfortunate set of circumstances for those inquisitive minds.
Valkris resigned her commission as Marine XO on the IKS Sword of Valor a few months after the Capellan Star incident* She decided to try her hand at life aboard a Federation Warship for a time and try life away from her sister for once. This decision has left her feeling alone and bitter at times but in the end she knows that it's what's best for the both of them if they are to grow a warriors. The two of them have a bet to see which one of them can gain command the fastest. The loser...has to get married. When word reached her that her old ship the IKS Sword of Valor was destroyed in battle, she took a brief leave of absence from Starfleet, fearing that the two loves of her life had been lost. The end result was her becoming engaged to Mek'tor and soon after she was due to return to Starfleet where she was originally to begin as XO of the USS Hera but instead was transferred to the USS Marconi< as it's Chief of Strategic Operations.
Kali and Valkris are both capable, highly skilled warriors of the Empire. They both contradict and compliment one another and the bond between them is strong. Valkris being half Human has since undergone further cosmetic procedures to enhance certain aspects of her appearance and to make her ridges look more like her sister.
Valkris is both feared and respected by those who have served underneath her. She is very protective of their friends Lt. K'Noggra and Lt. Kora, both who, along with her sister Kali, served together on the same ship in the officer exchange program, and where the four of them became close friends. After many years serving the IKF, Valkris resigns her commission to try her hand at Star Fleet. Her uncle on her mother's side being a Starfleet Captain himself, sent a letter of recommendation to Starfleet and her service in the OEP in the past helped fast track her to serving on board another vessel
