Physical Description While most of Susan's features are the classic stoic type of her Vulcan ancestors with a green tinge to her cheeks, sharp eyebrows, and controlled expression most of the time, she has a softness to the lines of her jawline, cheekbones, and general body curves that betray her as being half human. Not to mention very few Vulcans are as voluptuous as she is. She may have inherited the angular features and ears of her father, but she inherited the 'fluffiness' of her mother. She also tends to keep her hair well past shoulder length to frame her tan face better. The shock of white hair tucked behind her left ear is from her last assignment where she had to fight off a horde of computer termites.

Personal History She grew up on Earth as the daughter of one of the minor ambassadors from Vulcan and his human wife. As such, she faced adversity from her full Vulcan classmates, but found welcome from her human and other mixed race counterparts as she matured.

At the age of 35 she completed her management and command studies at the San Francisco University and joined Starfleet to escape the constant comparison of herself against full blooded Vulcans. When she joined Starfleet, she adopted the name Susan as an attempt to distance herself from her given name of 'Tekav', which means “deviant blood” in Vulcan.

After a four year course she was able to gain a commission and begin her life anew as a command ensign, quickly rising through the ranks. In 2398 she was promoted to Captain and assigned to the USS Hera - her first actual command.
