Personal History T'Ryn's life was quiet but exciting at the same time. Growing up between two cultures was fascinating and interesting and she learned happily about both cultures. She utilized what she learned and lived with the logic of Vulcan and the tenderness and thoughtfulness of Betazed. Growing up on Earth, allowed her to interact with humans and learn the many things she would need to continue her education in the Academy.

T'Ryn's entrance into the Academy was something special. She entered when she was 17 and with recommendations from her father that she be taught by the best teachers in the Academy. However, T'Ryn argued that she wanted no special treatment. All she wanted was to be treated equally like the other cadets and finally she was.

Once she began her classes, it was soon noticed that she had the head for complicated engineering situations. She could prove that certain equations used were incorrect in spite of them performing adequately. She improved the equations so that they performed well above expectations. Repairing warp conduits, plasma injectors and all the other instances in engineering gave her more of an edge over the other cadets but her kindness and desire to help the other cadets did more than make up for her gift. She had many friends in the Academy and when graduation came, her professors gave her the highest marks they could. Embarrassed, she accepted the commendations and grades and was summarily given her first assignment, USS Bandit as Ensign holding the position of CEO. A privilege to be sure, she accepted only after she found out her father had nothing to do with her posting.

The USS Bandit was a good ship and T'Ryn did her job and kept her running between the skirmishes with the Klingons. On one of these runs, the Bandit was taking supplies to a colony which had sustained damages from a hit and run attack my the Empire, Starfleet had sent in a Rapid Response team and T'Ryn met a guy from this team. They decided to have a quiet dinner after their respective jobs and met in the towns eating establishment. Dinner was good and it was quiet until all hell broke loose. A fight ensued and T'Ryn panicked as the burst of emotions hit her hard making her reach out and grabbed his hand. That momentary touch, in her heightened state, created the 'bond' between them as she saw into his mind the grove of trees, his happy place. All she knew about him was his last name, King, and that he was with the Rapid Response Team from Starfleet. Something she would use to find him when the time came for her first Ponn Far as they were now bonded.

T'Ryn served on the Bandit until she was decommissioned some 5 years later. She went back to Earth to begin her hunt for King and it took her 7 months to eventually find him but she did and she completed the bonding ceremony. It was strange because she actually urged him to clean up his act and behave himself if he were to become her mate. Just as quickly as she found him, he was gone again and now she was able to join another ship, USS Alvin where she held the position of CEO as Lieutenant. Here she became an invaluable member of the command team as the Federation Klingon war was being fought. During this time, T'Ryn worked hard and she started to look for King. She had found him for an instant and then he was gone. However this time she had found out that he had indeed changed and she would now be able to find him after the war was over.

The war ended and she found King on the USS Hades. T'Ryn put in for her transfer to the Hades as her CEO.
