Shenzi K'Ress




Shenzi K’Ress is an ace fighter pilot, a cyborg, a telepath, and a widow. She was born on an old Crossfield class vessel that had ended up in civilian hands, and had grown up on it. She adapted quickly to flying, and is now a flight leader.


Shenzi is a caitian/Kzinti hybrid, but has the appearance of a rather tall Caitian. She has multiple cybernetic prosthetics, but the only visible one is her right arm. The rest are all internal: twin hearts, kidneys, liver, spleen, one of her lungs, and spine. She has a large scar on her face crossing from above her left eye and stretching down to her right cheek. She has an athletic build, as well.


Shenzi was born on board an old Crossfield class starship that had gotten into civilian hands after being retired. She was an only child. From an early age she showed an interest in flying. Her life on the ship was pleasant, and she grew up around humans, being one of the very few non-humans on board. Shenzi’s telepathic abilities surfaced when she was 13, and her father, not really present in her life, took a sudden interest in helping her abilities grow, as well as teaching her the Kzinti language. When she was 16, she joined Starfleet Academy, and this was the first time she set foot (paw?) on a planet. She graduated in the top 1% her class as a fighter pilot, and was assigned to an Akira class carrier, the USS Shinano. She later met a Caitian, a fighter maintenance chief, who would become her husband. In early 2400, when she was flying a mission, she got into a dogfight with several pirate fighters and managed to shoot them down with the help of her squadron mates. However, she had taken a hit, and was ordered to eject. She tried, but damaged the ejection mechanism in her panic, and then followed the next order to bring it in for a crash landing. Upon landing on the deck, her husband rushed in to try and get her out. He managed to pop the canopy when the craft exploded, killing him and maiming Shenzi. She made a full recovery after getting the mechanical replacements. Shortly after recovering, she got  reassigned to Starbase Bravo.
