Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Bilhana "Hana" has been in all her duty stations considered a fine example of professional efficiency. But also stern and unbending. Having few friends and being argumentative and stubborn are the key elements that have slowed down her career in star fleet. If she could ever learnt to navigate the personal and political part of her job she might progress more.
But this slow progress doesn't seam to bother her. She's more or less content to execute her duties as a executive officer now. She has a deep almost spiritual love for her work, believing that the work is just as much about the effort as the end result.
She however still believes in and holds true the ideals of star fleet. Exploration and diplomacy. She's just far to pragmatic to think that everything will go as planned. The scientists and doctors need security and some times a show of force to work to there full potential.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||+Physically tough and stronger then her height would indicate.

+Aggressive and fearless in the face of danger.

One day she would like to return to earth, living in her native land again. Preserve the traditions of her culture. But she is a 'in the now' person. And for now, the corps is her homeland.

Almost all of her formative years where concentrated in and around the mountains of the Himalyan range. Living with and around her grand parents, still living in small communities on the slops of the high mountains. Taking a keen interest in the traditional cultural practices of her people.
Bilhanas performance in school was a mixed bag, showing great ability in literature, arts and social studies, but showing little interest or ability in math and science. She was a physically active and some what reckless child, by the time she was in her pre-teens climbing dangerous peaks and spending days and weeks alone out on the steeps of Nepal and Tibet.
It was early in her life that Hana decided that she like her father and brother would take the traditional duty of her cultural caste. Joining star fleet as a marine, upholding the gurkha traditions. This was only slightly dampened in 2379 when her older brother Eejun was killed in the line of duty, the shuttle he and his marine fire team was on being destroyed by a group of Cardassian separatists.
Four years later Hana herself joined star fleet, showing a talent for small arms and units tactics in her first few months of service after boot and AIT. Quickly being assigned to a boarding team in Star Fleets anti-piracy and smuggling task force.
She served with distinction for five years, authoring a number of training pamphlets and holodeck training programs. Being wounded in 2387 with a knife wound to the abdomen.
In 2389 she attended office candidate school and she was transferred to a anti-borg task force as unit leader. Her unit suffering higher then excepted casualties and 2391 being almost totally wiped out. Hana herself suffering servear plasma burns on the face, requiring the replacement of her right eye and two years of recovery. At this time her late brothers daughter moving in to help Hana.
Once she was more or less recovers she spent a two year rotation in the Corps Training Cadre. Teaching boarding and small unit tactics at Star Fleet Academy.
