Physical Description She likes to wear simple clothes and dark colors so she can blend into the background and avoid notice as she's had to do that for most of her life.

Recently, however, when she can get away with it, she has become fond of wearing black leather just to see what sort of reaction she gets. It also puts people off their guard, which allows her to get a better idea of what thype of people they are.

Jayna always has at least one blade weapon on her at all times as there are a number of ways one can come in handy. She also has a non-standard weapon, just in case. Quite often it's disguised as a piece of jewelry.

When she travels, she wears civilian clothes to be less conspicuous.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Jayna is often quiet and serious. She is very observant and listens to what goes on around her. She prefers to watch people and sit on the outskirts. However, she loves to put people off their guard by saying something outrageous or cracking a joke. But this is more a facade to hide behind or to learn more about someone by seeing how they respond.

She does love humor and will often joke around with those with whom she is comfortable. She loves puns and wordplay.

She can be paranoid and mistrustful, especially of Cardassians.

Of late, she has become more vivacious, either when she's comfortable with someone, or when she's uncomfortable and is using it as a facade.

Love has always eluded her, mostly because of her career choice. She still hopes to find someone who can love her for who she is and support her in her occupation.
Hobbies & Interests Jayna is an expert tracker and can move silently and without a trace. She routinely uses the holodeck to practice.
She spent her childhood living with her sister and parents in the woods of Bajor and knows how to survive in them.

She loves knowledge. She knows about herbs and homeopathic medicines. She is an expert with computers and knows how to find information. She can often find information unavailable to others. She will often practice creating computer bugs, worms, and spiders just to see how long it takes the computer to find them.

She enjoys reading and meditating. She also enjoys taking long walks through the woods. The woods remind her of the things she loves about her home and helps her maintain a sense of inner balance.

She practices origami and keeps several sizes and colors of paper to play with while she's sitting orwaiting.

She likes to draw and sketch and will sometimes have a sketch pad and pencils nearby. She will occasionally draw maps or drawings of people she met for reference or to show to others.

She's learning to play the flute.

Personal History Mira Luuk was a teacher on Bajor before the occupation and took a dim view of the changes the Cardassians made and the way they ruled with an iron fist. He met and married Laira, a Vulcan scientist and the two of them found themselves frequently at odds with the ruling government. They found others who believed as they did and formed a cell to liberate their homeworld.

It was in this environment that Jayna and her twin, Jayde, were born.

From infancy their parents began to introduce mild forms of poison to the girls to give them both an immunity to most common poisons. This was as a protection to their girls as several members of their cell had been killed by poison when they were caught by the Cardassians. (The girls have continued to build up their resistance as they've grown older and discovered other poisons. They continue to build their immunities it in respect for their parents wishes than because they feel there is a real threat of poisoning.)

The two girls were taught to spy on the enemy and to get information. Children were often overlooked and could oftne get into places adults could not. Especially children who were willing to work for a coin or two.

The twins became expert trackers, hunters and computer hackers. The two would often work in tandem to gather information that others could not find. Their unique methods earned them respect in the underground and later the Maquis. Although they worked as a team, they were very careful to never be seen together. When one went undercover, the other created an alibi in a public area just in case there were questions later.

The girls were 11 when their parents were killed in an ambush. They stayed with their cell as they were "family" until they were old enough to join the Maquis.

The girls continued to work together, serving on the same Maquis ship. Their missions were primarily to gather information and to help other groups fighting for freedom from oppressive dictatorships. Jayde learned how to take out an opponent quietly without leaving any sign that she'd been there. Jayna learned the art of disguise and could mimic many voices and accents.

Twice their unique skills were used to hack into a Federation database to retrieve information on a known Cardassian sympathizer so they could give it to their Bajoran contacts. Once they gave information to a Federation colony to give them time to defend against an attack.

Because of their work in Intel and their desire to help others, when the Federation asked the Maquis to help in exchange for a full pardon, both girls accepted the offer and joined Starfleet. The rest of their crew did not and there were some hard feelings, but the girls never betrayed their Maquis friends and later re-established those friendships.

In Starfleet, Jayna focused on Intelligence while Jayde went into security and computer programming. The two started on the same ship, but were soon separated as some crew were uncomfortable with the two Maquis who, in their opinion, had too much access to Starfleet Intel. The Captain trusted the women, but felt it better to separate them for the good of the crew.

====

Jayna's desire to help the underdog and do what she felt was right helped smooth the way for her transition from Freedom Fighter to Starfleet Intel. She still has a weakness for people who are being oppressed. And she still has a tendency to use unorthodox methods to achieve her ends.

She is a non-conformist who will often use unexpected methods to gather information or work undercover. It has gained her respect from other Intel officers.

When she is undercover she will often use one of three names: Romi Hunt, Leia Solo or Lexa Steele.

She much prefers her reputation to be attached to a pseudonym so that she can remain just another Intel officer.

She still keeps up with her hand-to-hand skills and combat methods learned on Bajor and the latest Federation computer security protocols in case she ever needs them, plus the latest Intel protocols. She is discreet but she usually knows what's going on -- especially on the starship to which she is assigned.
