Character Information

Gender Female
Species Human
Age 30

Physical Appearance

Height 177 cm / 5'10"
Weight 75 kg / 165 lbs
Hair Color Dirty golden blonde
Eye Color Light blue
Physical Description Tall and statuesque, the naughty navigator is possessed of considerable curvaceous attributes. However, she is still quite athletic despite her seeming handicap in that area, and can regularly be found jogging Deck Six. Dirty golden blonde hair that she keeps cut in a short but cute slyle slightly out of fashion, her full lips and manicured hands would mark her as rather girlish and ineffectual woman, while she is in point of fact neither. She usually wears the high-heeled boots offered as a part of the uniform for females which gives her an extra three inches of height, a psychological advantage that she emphasizes subtly by standing close to or looming over the stations of her fellow officers.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Smart, sarcastic, capable and she knows it. Rita has no trouble using her sexuality, either overtly or subtly to get what she wants, yet is more than willing to work hard to get where she's going. While she might be taken for a roustabout, she is in fact a dedicated officer who take pride in her work and understands her responsibilities as an officer of Starfleet. While she plans to enter the command track, she is well aware of the glass ceiling that currently exists in the fleet and is simply biding her time, taking rotations in each primary position. In the Academy she specialized in communications. In her first command she served as helmsman- and now she is mastering the Navigation position. After this she'll likely slip into the red once more to try her hand in Engineering, or perhaps strike for science officer if not straight to command. Ambition, thy name is Paris.
Strengths & Weaknesses While she outwardly appears sarcastic, self-confident and sensual, in truth Rita Paris is shy and secretive- she does not like for the world to know her business nor who she really is. Instead she prefers for her private life to be private, and for her public persona to satisfy her fellow officers. Thus a woman with secrets always has weaknesses.

While outwardly she appears so Paris is not genuinely ambitious, but driven to impress her father the somewhat disgraced Lieutenant Commander. He was busted when his attempts to prevent her from shipping out on the Constitution resulted in sabotage, which nearly killed Rita in a transporter accident. She has always been made to feel second best, as her father is misogynistic and thus dismissive of her achievements, despite being the eldest. He has pinned all of his hopes on her younger brother Albert to carry on the family name and continue the Star Fleet tradition.

Having been trapped as a transporter buffer ghost for four years aboard the USS Consitution, Rita Paris has a very strong aversion to transporters. Always taking a shuttle whenever possible is her MO and she is known to quite convincingly argue to use them on away missions in lieu of beaming down- particularly when it involves her and a transpoter.
Ambitions Command of a starship- to be the first female captain in Star Fleet. Not for herself or the right reasons, but just to validate herself to her domineering father... which, of course, is doomed to failure.
Hobbies & Interests Jogging, aerobics, judo, reading trashy and tawdry romance novels, botany, 1940s swing dancing. Collects glow in the dark toys and keeps a tropical fishtank of bright phosphorescent aquatic lifeforms in her quarters.
