Personality & Traits

General Overview Duran-Yeager Syal tends to be rather laid back but she tends to hate Cardassians because of her childhood and the fact her people were abused by them. She gets along with most people otherwise.

Duran-Yeager is a gentle soul who does not raise her voice no matter the situation, she is also forgiving and she is generally not the type to hold grudges as she knows the challenges and demands on the enlisted crew, she speaks for them and they, in turn, speak to her. Also, Duran does not lose her cool in front of her peers, officers and enlisted alike.

Duran-Yeager is, at present, a mother for a part Vulcan and part Bajoran child that she had named Shakaar, who some of her friends feel was a mistake as Duran had never intended to become pregnant while assisting Lt Commander Symok with his pon-far issues. There were no Vulcans present and she was the only female available.
However, this isn't really an issue as she has two other children and all presently live with their father. Captain Michael Yeager.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths: Duran-Yeager is easygoing and able to handle many issues and situations, including her son who can be overly demanding at times

Weaknesses: Duran-Yeager often doesn't go out of her way to get to know others, she also doesn't care to change other peoples opinions of her.
Ambitions This woman wants her own command but not at the expense of others. Duran-Yeager also tries to be a good mother to her children.
Hobbies & Interests This is a woman who will try anything once, preferably with her son and, or husband. Her hobbies are many and varied, as Duran rotates them in and out to keep from getting bored. When she is bored, she will sometimes find that she gets more out of a quiet book and a mug of hot soup then parasailing or swimming on the holodeck.

Personal History Duran Syal was born in 2359 in the middle of the brutality of the Bajoran occupation, she never knew her mother as Mai Duran was killed before she could give birth to her daughter, thanks to the Cardassians.

Syal only lived because her brother Duran Jerrold had to take measures into his own hands, he quite literally cut his mother's body open and yanked her out in a cesarean section, Syal, however, was almost mutilated during the process so she ended up with scarring from her chest, down her abdomen, and over her left leg down to her knee. In many ways she got lucky in the fact that she was given life but she was also almost killed at the same time.

Syal's life was one of neglect, hatred, and deprivation thanks to the Cardassians and it didn't change until she was aged ten.

Jerrold was not able to raise her as he was still too young to do so. So Syal went into foster care and she was raised until she was eighteen when she went off to join Starfleet as a medic and as a counselor which, for her, was most ironic.

Syal's time at Starfleet's boot camp was highly educational and while it helped her come to terms with many of her demons, it also didn't help her with the main one, her hatred of the Cardassians. Her first assignment was more of the same but she spent her time on Starbase 124 as a nurse but it wasn't until she got an assignment to the USS Genesis as a nurse and a counselor's aide but for the first year of her assignment to this ship, she was here only as a replacement for Lieutenant Neela Dealt who was reassigned quickly.

It wasn't until the end of her first year that she was was able to flourish as a counselor once a fellow officer who had been causing her issues was reassigned. One of her patients was a Vulcan male who was going through the pon far.

Medical assistance could only do so much as the USS Genesis was too far from Vulcan for Lieutenant Symok to select a mate so he turned to her, she agreed, citing that the ship was too far away so the two of them ended up in bed together as she helped him deal with the pon far with him losing control with her, in ways the experience was something Duran would never forget. It was also about this time that she began to develop a relationship with the executive officer of the USS Genesis, the two started as being friendly and then it slowly developed.

Duran knew what she was getting into when she agreed to copulate with him, he left her an unwed mother and several months or so later Shakaar came into the world. Yeager did not mind when Duran and her son spent time with him. If anything Yeager was a better father to her child then she was expecting, if anything her son became the glue that would hold their family together.

Duran requested reassignment about the same time citing a need for a change and so she was tapped for Chief of the boat of the USS Fe'garren as Talon Hunt as she was known at the time had selected her. Davijaan Yeager followed her over as he assumed the posting of executive officer on the USS Fe'garren rather than accept his own command, this was something that deeply touched Syal Duran in a way she never expected and two years went by before Duran Syal became Duran-Yeager Syal.

Off Duran-Yeager went and she spent the next several years serving with the rather unusual crew that Talon Yamaguchi had put together over the years but she was there for Talon when her marriage went onto the rocks. Jerome Hunt cited his wife's unreliability and her infidelity even when it was proven she was not seeing anyone else on the side, he still pressed for the divorce anyway, making things as difficult for Talon as was possible. Talon tried the best she could do with what she had to work with, as she had the loyalty of the Chief of the Boat and her Executive Officer, both assisted their commanding officer as the fallout from this ugly mess got public

Duran-Yeager was even accused of having intimate relations with her commanding officer, something both women scoffed at but the accusation was damning in itself. However, all this did was anger Duran as she felt insulted as she did not sleep around. Duran-Yeager remained ferociously loyal to Talon throughout the entire events, even going so far as to look after her children while all of this chaos was going on. When Yeager heard about all of this, he was angry with Admiral Hunt for dragging this mess out the way he was, the two men almost came to blows as Yeager did not care for his own spouse's name being

After the USS Fe'garren was decommissioned and scrapped to the damage she received on her mission into the Gamma Quadrant. Duran-Yeager was reassigned to Starbase 23 as their new command chief and while this came with a promotion to chief petty officer, she would need some time to process exactly just what had gone wrong on the Fe'garren. Here she served for four years before she went back into the field as the Chief of the Boat of the USS Hera.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the Hera's assignment, Duran-Yeager was separated from her son as her husband took him in Duran-Yeager didn't wish to cause her children issues and Yeager had the room on his assignment. Duran went to her next assignment as she now knew that her children were safe and at the same time, she received her promotion to senior chief petty officer which was an unexpected but welcome surprise.
