Zhinivouss "Zhini" JillalishGender:
Green-skinned Asari, an off-shoot of the Orions, with yellow-gold eyes and various splotches of darker skin in symmetrical patterns along her face. Naturally hairless, but with a serious of fleshy ridges along her head ending in points near the base of her skull. Slender with a narrow frame, but a larger chest to give her an almost disproportionate bust-to-waist ratio.Age:
26, actual and apparent (longer lived than humans, but age identically until mid-twenties to thirties at which point aging seems to stop for a prolonged period of time)Position:
Lieutenant Junior GradeBiography:
The pheremone-producing Orions had, at some point in the distant past, intermingled with another species--some suspect it may have been the Betazeds, though there seems to be no real evidence to support the idea--which ultimately produced the Asari. The Asari have a number of differences from their Orion cousins, firstly the pheromones that the Asari produce are much more muted in effect. Where the Orion pheromones can elicit extreme changes in mood or behavior, the Asari pheromones simply lul others into a generally receptive mood by easing physical and mental tension. Extreme emotions such as fear or anger easily overcome this influence, though a skilled Asari can slowly calm and angered person more easily than others. What the Asari lack in their pheromone production compared to the Orions, they make up for with a passive telepathic aura. While the Asari cannot read the emotions of another like the Betazeds do, in fact their empathic abilities work largely in reverse. Asari induce the emotions that they are currently feeling in those around them, the older Asari have shown the ability to focus this ability but only after a great deal of practice and discipline. One Asari has only a mild effect on those around them, but a calm Asari can keep a group mostly calm for a period of time.
Zhinivouss, or simply "Zhini", left Orion space to join Starfleet at a young age, eager to explore the stars. A peculiar knack with her telepathic abilities lended her an acute sense of direction and location in space which made her climb through the ranks rather quickly as a gifted, young Helmswoman. What she lacked in experience she made up for in raw talent, and despite some well-intentioned pranks on the ships she was fortunate enough to pilot, she was usually a welcome addition to the bridge for the natural focus that her aura brought to her crewmates. It was this particular gift, along with an even greater natural resistance to the space-folding phenomenon that made her a clear choice for the USS Longbow. In early tests she showed that she could maintain enough concentration post-jump to do two things: ensure the ship could be piloted for a nominal amount of time to avoid any significant post-jump threats, and provided a small measure of stability to the others on the bridge, allowing them to resist the libido-increasing effects of the coaxial drive for a slightly longer period of time.
Her exposure did come with some other side-effects, however. Her emotional balance was slightly shifted, making her more prone to heights of different forms of passion--anger, lust, fear, etc. Furthermore her libido was raised similarly to most of the others that had been exposed to the coaxial drive.Likes:
