Character Physical Description

Regan Alessi

Hair : Dark brown Skin :

Olive

Height : 5' 6 Blood : Red
With olive-toned skin and eyes which appear almost black, with the usual Betazoid solid pupils, Regan has typical Betazoid looks. She is not a beauty, but her face is oval, with high cheekbones. Her nose is well-formed and her mouth is usually smiling, as if she finds life itself constantly amusing. Her figure is neat, and she has an innate poise and confidence.
History, Education and Skills
Family and Background :

Regan's parents were both diplomats and Regan benefited from an early life spent travelling with her parents. When she developed her Betazoid abilities she was taken back to Betazed to live with her grandmother whilst receiving the necessary training to harness her abilities, as well as induction in the Telepathic Moral Laws.

Once she had established sufficient control over her abilities to satisfy her teachers, Regan spent most of her holidays with her parents and consequently is very familiar with both diplomatic functions and diplomacy.

Since her parents were both on Betazed at the time Doenitz's forces arrived there, and they are currently listed as 'missing' like so many with ties to the 52nd, Regan does not know if they are alive or dead. She has no siblings. She has one son, Menno, aged six, the result of a short affaire with an ambitious young junior lieutenant (a human called Alexis Montague) whom she met on her first posting. They split up when he was assigned to Admiral Doenitz's flagship nearly seven years ago. Regan had not heard from him since the split, and he never knew about his son. Alexis was killed when his ship attacked the USS Mystique where coincidentally Regan was assigned as Asst. Counsellor. She rarely talks about Alexis.

Education

:

Regan always had to work hard to achieve the high academic results that she wanted. Educated largely on Betazed, finishing with a very hard-earned First in Psychology. Her doctoral thesis (which followed several years later at the University of Cambridge on Earth) was on emotional trauma in telepaths.

Pre-Starfleet History

:

Post-graduate studies in Psychology and languages.

Starfleet History

:

Four years at Starfleet Academy, specialising in Counselling. Since graduating she has served on several starships, mostly as an assistant counsellor within the counselling department, but has on occasion acted as Assistant Chief Counsellor when needed.

Regan took a four-year sabbatical when her son was born and returned to active service two years ago. After serving on the Mystique, she was assigned to Starbase Geneva and she has recently been serving as Assistant and Intern to the Mithrandir's former Counsellor, Alosar.

Medical History

:

Nothing of note.

Regan has not yet entered "the phase". (Betazoid women are not considered to be 'mature' until they reach the human equivalent of their forties, which coincides with the female Betazoid 'Phase', at which time an unmarried woman is expected to seek and find a mate. During this time, a Betazoid woman's sex drive is expected to quadruple.)

Skills

:

Regan has a well-developed ability to block telepathic communication from others and is unwilling to use her telepathy except under orders to do so. She would never do so without the permission of the other person concerned. In her counselling sessions, Regan relies solely on her extensive knowledge of both psychology and body-language, unless requested to do otherwise by her client.

Other Information
Hobbies :

Likes to relax with friends over a good meal, particularly if there is a good wine to accompany it. Enjoys reading and the occasional holodeck interactive adventure, for preference a murder mystery or thriller type.

General Notes

:

Regan is a friendly and sociable person who gets on well with most people. She has a slightly quirky sense of humour and often finds things amusing which others don't. Unlike many Betazoids she is completely comfortable around those whose minds cannot be read (for example Ferengi), since that means she doesn't have to have her shields up at such a high level.
