Generally, Iari is friendly with everyone she meets. However she can also be elusive when the mood strikes her, with a bit of aloof on the side. She has a wide base of knowledge and a variety of skills which makes her a valuable asset to any team. She is highly responsible with regards to duty, and slightly carefree with regards to her own personal safety.
Iari has a proclivity towards kleptomania. It is an art in which she excels; thus is a habit hard to break.
Iari was born and raised on the planet Ardana in the city of Marapo. Marapo, like most cities on Ardana, specialized in mining; Iari’s parents both worked as miners. Iari’s childhood was typical, dares to eat worms, tumbles on the school playground, and struggles to finish homework on time. Overall, she was a happy and untroubled child until her mid-teens.
Though her grades were improving in school, the quality of her home life was quickly fading. Iari wanted to be something more than a miner, whereas her parents were convinced mining was the only way to earn a living on Ardana. This created a conflict which has never been resolved.
Shortly after Iari’s sixteenth year, her mother came down with a nearly fatal illness as a result of her work environment. While Ardista spent most of her time in and out of the hospital, Iari began her application process into Star Fleet Academy. When her father, Qilmol, discovered this, Iari received the worst beating of her life.
Two days later, as Iari gathered her bag for school, she stopped in her parents’ room to wish her mother well before heading off for the day. Her mother was not in the room (having gone back to the hospital late the night before); but her sister was in the room... in a not so proper fashion. Neither Qilmol nor her sister, Liloo, noticed Iari - which was fine with Iari. Iari never returned home after that.
As a run-away, Iari scrounged for survival over the following months and eventually found herself in the penal system for several acts of theft. With a dash of fate and a helping hand in a round-about way, Iari finally found herself at the doorstep of Star Fleet Academy with an acceptance letter in hand.
Iari excelled beyond expectations during her training at the academy. Free from a restrictive lifestyle under her parents’ care, Iari managed to maintain a strong sense of self and conducted herself respectfully. Engrossed in her studies, she expanded her curriculum to include multiple fields of interest along with various extra-curricular activities.
She participated with the Academy’s swim team, held several small roles in student theatrical productions, and took away a fair number of medals for her sharp shooting skills.
Post Academy years
The intel field is often more research and less adventure than many would believe. Iari spent the first three years out of the academy posted on a remote outpost where the scientists had the most excitement when discovering ancient relics from the Kappaian dynasty.
It was while she was stationed here that she met Slaryn; two years later, they were married.
After her fourth year, reassignments finally began the adventure every Intel officer hopes for, yet none of them discuss. Unfortunately, it also brought about the death of Slaryn and grievous injury to Iari. After a month-long recovery period, Iari returned to duty in a new division and traveled much of the alpha quadrant in various assignments. Recently, she has found herself assigned to Kepler Station.
During Faradays Gone By, Iari awoke to find herself looking much younger then when she went to bed the night previous. She did, however, maintain all her memories of her 37 years, unlike some of the other people afflicted by this event. When the time came to choose whether to return to her proper age, Iari chose to remain in her youthful body. This has caused some issues with her job insofar as appearances go; her quality of work has not changed.
