Personal History Eska was born in the tunnels of Ent’Rise Terra Nova, to a trive of Novans that refused to return to the overside. Her people kept to themselves as their population grew of the centuries. The council of Arc’her forbid anyone from going to the overside (above ground), sense their ancestors where nearly killed.

When she was 12 years old she was hunting some diggers near the older entrance to the Ent’Rise tunnels, when there was a cave in. She was forced to flee to the overside to survive. She blinded when she got there, sense it was mid-morning. She spent 3 days looking for a way home, when she was discovered. She had found a camp of people and she attempted to steal some food, when she was stunned fleeing this group.

When she awoke she freaked out as she was someplace she didn’t know. She later discovered that she was moved to a research center that was a city populated by other Novans that went to the overside. It took months for the lead researcher, Dr. Ericka Terraman, and the other Novans to earn her trust. It was decided that she was to return to her home after the cave in was cleared. THe surface Novans wanted her to deliver a message stating that they no longer had to hide in the underside as the overside was now safe, but she was exciled for disobeying the most sacred of rules and called a Shale.

She traveled back to the overside, and wondered around for nearly 2 weeks before she came across Dr. Terraman and her team. She explained what happened to her to them. The overside Novans, as Eska started to call them, took her in and started to educate her. It was during the next 6 years she had to cram everything just to catch up to the other children at the Research center. When she turned 18 she applied to Starfleet Academy, where she barely passed the entrance exams.

Her time in the Academy was even rougher, do to her lack of experience with the various species and temperaments, in other words: Culture shock. She had exposure to these other races at Terra Nova, but she wouldn't speak with them or just avoid them. Eska had to work every hard to complete assignments on time. She was annoyed when she would see other cadets off doing personal activities as she worked hard, as she had to take extra assignments to keep her grades out of the falling range. The only thing that really kept her afloat in the Academy was her knowledge of underground Mosses, Lichens, Algae, and animals. She did take an extra year at the Academy to finish up her needed courses. When she did graduate from the Academy she was at the bottom of her class. Her first posting on the USS Alliance.

Genetic Alterations and Adaptations: The Novan genetic structure still shows signs of Radiation damage (as reported by the crew of Enterprise NX-01). With centuries living below ground, the Novan eyesight has diminished in bright light (causeing sever discomfort to near blindness), but with enhanced darkvision. All other senses of the Novan people have also an increase of sensitivity. The Novan's also don't have the many gene therapy that all Federation citizens have enjoyed.
Note: Eska has refused any of the gene therapies that where offered to her.
