Medical History

Nothing of note. Completely (Profoundly) Deaf. There is a possible medical procedure that would eliminate Arysha's Deafness, but she is staunchly against it and had refused every time it has been suggested by medical professionals - at time becoming extremely angry at the suggestion. Arysha is physiologically 5 year younger than her chronological age due to a time anomaly that shifted the 52nd fleet forward by 5 years.

General Notes

:

Arysha is a member of the Atrean species. She was born on Federation Space Station Tango Sierra after her parents had fled their home planet Atrea. The planet's magma core was found to be cooling and many people fled the planet. Most returned following the help the Enterprise-D provided Drs. Pran and JulianaTainer that reliquified the core, but Canek and Timil Tethlin were engineering scientists and interested in working with the Federation elsewhere. Arysha's parents chose to explore the Galaxy and Arysha was born during an extended stay on Science Station Tango Sierra, where her parents were working as scientists at the time. Arysha looks like a typical Atrean, and the only thing that one would see in looking at her is that she wears a pair of black gloves that shimmer in the light as her hands move. She also wears what appears to be a pair of silver framed glasses and a vox at her hip. These items are essential for Arysha to get through day to day life. The glasses provide her with a realtime textual translation of speech and other pertinent information around her. The gloves provide a realtime translation that is vocalized by her vox when she communicates. Arysha is completely Deaf and uses Sign Language to communicate, the vox she wears translates her language almost literally - thus, most of the time she "speaks" Federation Standard but the syntax is similar to a Latin-based Earth sign language colloquially known as ASL.
