Personal History Indrala Xerix is the oldest child and only daughter of Celestria Xerix and her husband Jovari. She has one brother whom died in his infancy.

Mother: Celestria Xerix was one of the freedom fighters on Betazed and was lost during the ousting of the Dominion forces from their peace-loving planet. Through her, Indrala is Daughter of the Third House of Betazed.

Father: Jovari Sarn-Xerix. A Couturier from whom Indrala gained her love of fashion. He lives in Paris and designs clothes for many of the diplomats who live in the Federation capital.

2351: Indrala is born on the family estate in the Hedeyan Archipelago. A birthmark covering most of her scalp makes her hair lack pigment. Otherwise, she is a healthy baby.

2353: Jovari accepts a position as a couturier in the French fashion house Marchionne in Paris. The family splits their time between Earth and Betazed.

2357: Indrala is enrolled in primary school on Earth, severely curtailing the family’s ability to travel. It’s now school’s off season in Betazed and the rest of the time on earth.

2357-2368: Primary Education. Indrala excels in History, Language Arts, and Social Studies, but struggles in Mathematics, and some aspects of Science during her high school years. Celestria tutors her daughter herself, using only verbal or written communication. She insists Indrala not have an unfair advantage over her human peers.

2359-2373: The Ballet School at Opéra National de Paris. The Betazoid physique is noted for being well suited for the rigors of Terran ballet. Indrala enjoys the physical activity. Also, during 2367-2372 she has a relationship with Russian danseur Miloš Antonov.

2368-2374: Indrala graduates from primary school and is accepted into the Sorbonne. She majors in Library Science in pursuit of a career at Memory Alpha. In 2372 Indrala ends her relationship with Miloš.

2373: War between the Federation and the Dominion is declared. Living in the capital of the Federation, the telepathic Xerix family is bombarded by worrisome details they “hear”. Celestria wants the family to return to the peaceful paradise of Betazed, fearing Earth to be a priority target for the Dominion.

2374: Indrala graduates with a Doctorate in Library Sciences from the Sorbonne. With the war going badly, Celestria insists they return home. Jovari, now head of Atelier Marchionne, shutters the business. Initially rejecting the idea, Indrala is convinced when a Dominion attack on Memory Alpha nearly destroys the unprotected facility. The family returns to their home on the Hedeyan Archipelago. Celestria reveals that she’s pregnant again.

2374: In a move that shocks the entire Alpha quadrant, the Dominion invade Betazed. They capture the planet in less than 24 hours. The Xerix family’s home is in a remote region of the planet, strategically unimportant, yet the Dominion take no chances, garrisoning troops who watch the islanders around the clock. Celestria delivers her son in secret, with no medical supplies. This is done because the Cardassians are cruelly experimenting on Betazoids to study their telepathy. All of the Betazoids experimented upon die. They name the baby Ghant, which means peace in the Betazoid language.

2375: Ghant contracts Cataran influenza, a normally quite treatable illness. The family’s requests for medicines fall on deaf ears for days. Jovari attempts to build a raft to take him to Iscandar, a large city on the Tharazad continent. His raft is discovered and he is publicly flogged. Ghant dies the next morning. The family bury the infant and for this, the Jem Hadar burn their house.

2375: The Betazoid guerilla freedom fighters make their way across the planet. When they come to the archipelago, the Xerix family joins them. Celestria dies in Arandel during the final push to liberate the planet.

2375: Indrala and Jovari assist in the rebuilding efforts. Indrala meets Istrol Vataix, the man her parents had betrothed her to when she was a child. Istrol has lost his entire family. He tells Indrala he intends to join Starfleet, to help make sure this never happens to anyone else.

2375: War with the Dominion ends, with Cardassia laying in worse condition than Betazed. Indrala informs Jovari that she too will join Starfleet, and that she hopes he will return to Paris and his Atelier, as there is nothing left for them on Betazed.

The Ops department of this facility was tasked with the flow of nearly all the goings-on, repairs, resupplies, and other day-to-day operations. The reputation of this assignment was that it either made one perform, or put in for resignation.
