|Personal History||Krysia was born on Drax in 2356, her mother had been part of an ambassadorial group aboard the USS Maiden the starship commanded by Andrew Nash when she had fallen in love with him unfortunately her empathic and telepathic abilities made too much of a connection to Andrew and the two of them spent an unintentional night together. Krysia's mother decided not to contact Starfleet to inform Andrew that she was pregnant with his child and several months later gave birth to Krysia.
Raised on Drax Prime Krysia was learned from an early age to control her telepathic and empathic abilities, being the only half-breed of her kind she is somewhat an unknown to her people & their concern has always been how well she would be able to control her abilities, so much so she was offered a neural implant to help with control but she turned it down preferring to be herself rather than a 'muted' version as she tends to think of it. The nearest comparison to a Drax would be a Betazoid but more powerful. She was always a hard working student and worked hard as even at an early age she wanted to join the Academy on Drax where talented students went on to do bigger and brighter things. It was only once she was old enough that her mother decided to tell Krysia about her father being Human, learning this she set out to find out as much as she could.
Deciding she wanted to know more about her father & his life she researched what she could through Ambassadorial channels before applying for Starfleet Academy and was surprised to be accepted.
Krysia has recently married her love and father of her twins, James Smith. She's thrilled to finally be married to the man who has come to be her entire universe.
Krysia specialised in both Operations and Counselling and as such is a fully qualified ship’s Counsellor. She spent much of her psychology training in a placement at the University on Betazed, as well as at Starfleet Medical. Having spent a small portion of her time at the academy under medical supervision for stress thanks to her telepathic & empathic abilities she coped to go on and graduated Starfleet Academy with honours in both Operations and Counselling.
Krysia started out her career as a Counsellor, her empathic abilities made it a natural choice for her but during a crisis aboard the USS Saratoga she had no choice but to leap in and take over at Ops after the Operations Officer was fatally wounded. Given that she had proven herself capable she was offered the chance of a position change to Operations Officer aboard the USS Phobos, thus
starting off her more permanent career change to Operations Management, although Counselling remains her true love for a career.
A change of position aboard ship has seen Krysia transfer back to Counselling as Chief Counsellor. Another big change for Krysia was the early birth of twins Emily and Joseph. Having gone into labour whilst stuck in a malfunctioning holodeck.
