Background:
Kalissa was born on Trill into a loving family. She has three older sisters
and she is the youngest of the family. Her parents are both unjoined Trills
as are her sisters. Her father is a doctor on Trill and her mother is a
happy housewife. Her eldest sister
Lilly is a scientist on Scientia colony and the next eldest Glade is a
civilian teacher on the USS Atlantis. The third, Aalycia is married and
lives on Terra with her husband and two children. Kalissa grew up on Trill
with her family and was a very active child, she was always into things and
could never be found when there were chores to do. She and her sisters
always got along and they write letters to each other often. They grew up
supporting each other in everything that they did. If one was sick then the
other three would be found beside her.

At the age of 4 Kali started Ballet and continued dancing, Singing and
acting all through her childhood and teen years.. she even continued it
when her other dream came true. Kalissa always wanted to go to Starfleet and
study starship operations and warp drive. She had no interest in joining
with a symbiont and was content to continue her life as an unjoined Trill.
She completed standard education on Trill and applied to Starfleet at the
age of 15 and half. She passed her exam with flying colours and was
accepted
immediately to the academy. She moved straight away to Terra and began her
studies taking on a huge course load. Kalissa majored in Starship
operations and engineering and Minored in helm, security and Navigation. She completed
one year at Starfleet Engineering and Operations school (Terra) Completed
with honours. One year extra at Starfleet Navigation School (New Paris)
Completed with honours. That equated to the normal four years (one with the
extra course load from the Operations school) and one year extra.

She loved her time at the academy and earned the nickname 'Cadet 007'
because of her knowledge of gadgets and computer systems and because of her
popularity with the male cadets. Kali dated rarely and never had a
relationship with any of her fellow cadets but that never stopped the guys
from trying. Kali had many friends from both sexes and was often out
partying on free weekends. She joined the academy's drama society and made
a lot of her friends that way as well as joining the Academy's swim team. She
worked hard while at the academy and was soon placed in charge of her own
unit.

The unit was called "Omega". All members of the six person squad have a
small tattoo on their right shoulder blade of the Omega signal. The squad
included three humans, Adriana Edwards,  Jake O'Neil and Charlie Harris, a
Vulcan, S'lek, and a Betazoid, Jasmine Serefel and Kali Durring a training
mission Kali and her unit were assigned to land a shuttle on a planet with
a hostile environment. They were to land retrieve an object and get back to
the shuttle and back to the space ship.

The planet known as Bersallis 3 frequently has firestorms and the cadets
job was simple. That was until a member of the team decided to explore the area
without his teammates. Kali and the others finished the job and when she
counted heads she realized that Charlie Harris, was missing. She knew that
a firestorm was coming and after contacting Charlie she learned that he had
fallen and hurt his ankle and was stranded.

Kali made a decision and sent the rest of the team back to the ship with
the object and after grabbing enough supplies for two people she started out on
a trek to rescue her fellow cadet. She found him and managed to get them
both to safety before the approaching firestorm hit. They hid in a cave
until they could be rescued. With the heavy ionisation in the atmosphere
transporters were useless and they had to wait for am other shuttle to be
sent down. When they were finally back on the Starship USS Tuena, Kali was
commended and when they returned to the academy Admiral Hayden   gave Kali
the Grankite Order of Honour: 'For rescuing a fellow cadet in a training
mission gone wrong.'. Though nothing was ever said publicly Charlie and
Kali became closer with him backing her up in difficult situations and the like.
He became a sort of body guard and most of the squad knew this and the
Omega's became closer then ever due to the adventure that their squad
leader and the 2IC had gone through.

The young Trill was happy and continued her studies and graduated from the
academy and the schools with honours and in the top 5% of her class.
Her first posting was the USS Heartfire where she served as an Ops officer.
She served as an ops officer on the Heartfire for two years before
transferring to the USS Reliant as the new Assistant chief of Ops. She
loved the Reliant but was soon transferred to the USS Galaxy as a full Lieutenant
and ops officer.

It was here on the Galaxy that she found the fact that being a un-joined
Trill was going to haunt her. She met a fellow officer by the name of
Helena Kyler, a joined Trill and a lieutenant in security. They were friends and
Helena never tried to talk the young impetuses Trill into joining the
initiate program, in fact Helena respected the decision of Kali and admired
her for it. But the friendship wouldn't last very long. Helena was mortally
wounded on an away mission and a new host was needed urgently. Dr Autumn
Quevvenson the chief Medical officer on the USS Galaxy, unsure of the
position of Kali on the subject of becoming a host went to the captain and
explained the situation. She was promoted again while on galaxy to
Lieutenant Commander.

Captain Price approached the young Ops officer who had just been promoted
to chief of Ops on Galaxy and asked her about becoming a host for the Kyler
symbiont.
At first Kali was shocked to be even considered and stated that she had no
desire or training to host a Symbiont.  She knew that if necessary Price
could order her to take the symbiont and she had no wish for it to die..
but it took her a while to even agree. After only a few hours to decide, before
Dr Autumn Quevvenson, a close friend to both Helena and Kali, dragged her
to see the dying symbiont, Kali finally agreed to it. As the only un joined
Trill on board and the only un joined Trill for miles Kali was joined to
the Kyler Symbiont.

After the joining Kali found herself assaulted mentally by the past lives
and emotions of Kyler's hosts. A message was sent to the Trill home world
and they sanctified the joining of necessity. Though they refused to give
Kali any help with her new life as a joined Trill

Kali now had the memories of the 6 other hosts including the memory of her
dear friend Helena. Kali picked up a lot of interests from her Symbiont,
like a thirst for knowledge in Archaeology which came from the 4th host and
a love of languages from the 5th host. She has adapted to these interests
and added her own in the year since that she became Kyler's 7th host. These
overwhelmed her at first and sometimes she will slip into memories and use
the information in those memories to help herself and her fellow crew
mates.
When she got transferred to the USS Dale Earnheart she took with her
memories of her own life on the Galaxy and left many friends behind on the
ship that had become her home away from home. She has told her parents of
her joining and even though they have never been joined they have accepted
it well. She is hoping to make her mark on the Dale and hopes to make
friends.

Personality profile:
Kali can be shy and reserved when she doesn't know anyone, but once she
does she can be a very outgoing person. Kali has a temper but it is a slow fuse
and she can be often found working out if it gets to much. The fact that
she wasn't trained as a host affects her and she does sometimes show signs of
stress if memories surface at inopportune moments. She has been asked to
attend counselling but has refused stating that if she couldn't handle her
present condition then she would return to Trill and ask them for help.

Physical profile:
Tall with lightly tanned skin and crescent shaped Trill markings, she has
light brown eyes that in some lights can seem to be amber and long dark
hair. She has a dancers body from her years as a dancer. She always wears
her hair down when off duty but when on duty it is up in a pony tail with
the tail hanging loose.

Special Notes:
Kali has the life memories of six past hosts, all affect her in some ways
and she does sometimes show signs of stress if memories surface at
inopportune moments.

1st Host: Cade Kyler: A Prominent Scientist on Trill. He was a married man
and had three children and died from old age. Cade joined to Kyler at a
very young age.. at the age of 17 he was considered as a host and Kyler accepted
him straight away. They had a long life and it was rich of science and
discovery.
2nd Host: Ayden Kyler: A politician and a bachelor of the highest order,
Ayden died in an assassination attempt on his party's leader. Ayden was a
respected member of the community and a respected member of galactic
politics. He was shot by a sniper that was aiming for his Lover. Ayden was
gay. He was 25 when he received the Symbiont and he was 40 when he died.
3rd Host: Jarrah Kyler: A Starfleet captain, Captained the USS Nottingham.
Jarrah was a dedicated solider and he loved the stars and being in space.
He died in a battle with the Romulans at the neutral zone.
4th Host: Meriden Kyler: An Archaeologist of renown loved life and loved
history. She was one of a number of federation archaeologists on a dig on
Tartallurs V, a now dead world rich in its heritage of it past occupants
where she was mortally wounded in a cave-in. She was transported directly
back to Trill where Kyler was given to Zuri.
5th Host: Zuri Kyler:  Zuri was very hesitant when offered the Kyler
Symbiont. a new applicant fresh from the Initiate program, Zuri doubted her
own capabilities in handling the Symbiont. She eventually got over that and
began her work in her chosen field of diplomacy. She became a diplomat to
the federation from Trill. Had a very quiet life. Died of old age. Zuri
spoke many federation languages and loved learning them.
6th Host: Helena Kyler: Helena was honoured to be granted the opportunity
to host Kyler and soon after graduating from Starfleet academy she joined with
Kyler and became a security officer on the USS Galaxy, she died due to
wounds caused by a energy weapon on an away team. The symbiont would have
died there but for an unjoined Trill by the name of Kalissa Hardens
