Physical Description Pip is a lanky woman with long arms and legs. She has an athletic, sturdy build that left little room for frills like curves, reserving that bit of creation for sharp elbows and strong shoulders. She has striking pale green eyes, very short black hair (that comes with a story), and a slight smirk 90% of the time. When given the choice, Pip tends to dress more on the androgynous side simply out of comfort. She could give a rat's arse about fashion and such unless it's time to do the horse and pony shows. Pip has three tattoos: a line of very small purple flowers along the back curve of her left ear, an inscription on her left inner wrist that says 'lost time is never found again'- a Benjamin Franklin quote, and a constellation on her right shoulder.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Pip, first and foremost, is a woman of many faces. She can be the nurturing friend one moment, then a fierce screaming banshee laying out terms the next, and then break civilly for tea with a strange kind of fluidity. She's a deep thinker- hard to crack- as she tends to play for her audience. What she's really thinking, she to keep to herself except in the most serious of situations. She is terribly straight forward unless the situation calls for pomp and ceremony, and loves to tease. Despite coming off as a very friendly and caring person to her friends, Pip has difficulty making strong connections. Her love life is nonexistent, and her relationship with her family is distant. She is still mourning the loss of her brother.

Personal History Elspeth and Edgar were born within eleven minutes of one another in Poole, England. Their parents were elated, of course, and were predictably mundane about giving them similar names. It fit them, however, as all through their childhood the two were inseparable, roving the beaches and having grand imaginary adventures. They were both sterling intellectuals, highly praised by their school, but more importantly, they were each other’s closest friend. They had the same interests, finished each other’s sentences, played the same sports, could hand write each other’s assignments down to matching handwriting, had the same humor. It was as if Ed and Elle were matching bookends, and they accepted very few into their inner circle because no one else was needed. Even planning for the future was done together- and rather exact at that. Starfleet Admiral for Ed at a decidedly young age, where as Elle was pleased with the idea of simply being an officer.

When Ed has an aneurysm at 17, Elle was lost. She was horribly alone for the first time in her life. Without her brother, it was like losing half of her person. She was hollow, inconsolable, and listless. The girl threw herself into schooling as a way to distance herself from her already alienated family. For a year she wrestled with what to do before deciding to keep the course steady. Only now she was making up the loss for both twins. She refused to go by a shared name any more, instead of going by Pip from her middle name.

At the Academy, Pip did well. She continued the trend of loading on subjects and burying herself in workload. Many people knew of Pip, but not many knew of her until she started helping a few classmates in xenolinguistics. Then suddenly she had friends whether she wanted them or not. The circle grew to envelop more people since Pip had a knack for being able to talk to anyone, which eventually evolved into a huge debate circuit outside of the classrooms with several social experiments feeding off of it over arcing between classes. Pip graduated with impressive marks, but volunteered to stay back an extra two years for additional training.

Now it was time to put all of the theory into motion- half of a one still- onboard her first assignment and it was easy. That is- in the moment it was easy. When in a debate or an accord or a talk or a de-escalation she was whoever she needed to be. Tough as nails or soft and kind, rowdy or whispering and something was accomplished. That’s why she’s stayed on.
