Personality & Traits

General Overview A witty but sometimes weary Romulan in (somewhat self)-exile after the fall of the Empire, who has been carving out an existence now within Federation space as a lawyer while raising young twins, and is seeking a stable, quiet home for what remains of her family.
Strengths & Weaknesses Intelligent and witty, with strong convictions but a sense of nuance; capable of using methods appropriate to the situation, whether that be logical or emotional persuasion, fiery rhetoric and hard stances, or subterfuge and compromise. Unfortunately, can sometimes have a bit of a temper. A quick learner good at adapting...But sometimes frustrated and forlorn by just how far she has now had to.
Ambitions Ideally, to rid the galaxy of idiots; but the Federation has, as she has discovered, a wide variety of laws against such things. To try to make some sort of life for what little is left of her House and family, away from both the ruins of her own society which no longer welcomes her for the most part, and the many in the Federation who do not do so, either.
Hobbies & Interests Caithlin enjoys running, fencing, swimming and diving, ceramics, and, since coming to Federation space and being introduced to such, bicycling. She is apt to read widely, in part in an attempt to gather as much information as possible on a wide variety of topics and issues, as you never know when it might come in handy.

Personal History Born the second-eldest child of the heir apparent of a Romulan noble house with definite, if carefully expressed and guarded, reservations about the Tal Shiar; Caithlin was extremely close in childhood to her older sister (and closest agemate among her siblings) Aliereth. When Aliereth chose to leave the Empire (with her new husband, Tal) as a protest against the ever-growing power of the Tal Shiar, Caithlin, though disagreeing with the action, assisted her sister with covertly acquiring the funds and contacts necessary to make the arduous journey out of the Empire at the height of its isolation, knowing it almost certain the two would never meet again. As the next eldest, she then had to take up her older sister's place in the line of succession. She served as an officer in the military for several decades as a legal advisor, including as part of liaison staff to Federation forces during their mutual war against the Dominion, before leaving to assist her father in the Senate, where he had taken his mother's place after her death in Shinzon's attempted coup.

When the nature of the Hobus threat became inevitable, Caithlin's father, unlike many other senators who fled to save themselves while abandoning their people as a whole, felt it would be an irredeemable stain on the honor of his House to do so, and stayed to face death with his people...But sent his pregnant heir on what he told her was a "fact finding" mission to a world outside of the projected path. Surrounded by the destruction and deaths of so many of her people and most all of her family including her parents and her husband, Caithlin soon had other problems as well to confront, as the Empire all too quickly fractured in the absence of the core worlds and the central government...a problem that if anything only got worse once those shattered pieces began to reorganize themselves into smaller breakaway states. Unsafe in the Free State due to her familys' known disdain of the Tal Shiar, rather unwelcome in the Republic due to her previous place in the higher echelons of society, and desperate for safety for her young children, in mid-2390 she did what would have been unthinkable to her even five years before...and followed the journey her sister had taken 40 years ago, into Federation space. The reunion between the two was both euphoric and despairing: In the end, the pair were reunited against all odds and all expectations…but only because both were now effectively in exile.

Caithlin found herself not necessarily very welcome to many in the Federation, either; but proved a quick study (if downright frustrated by what she considers the bizarre nature of much of it) in converting her former training as a Romulan legal intercessor and advisor to passing the Federation bar exam and beginning work by early 2392 as the local equivalent: A lawyer, specializing in civil cases, estate planning, legal advice, and corporate and organizational and contract law. Most recently, she did a variety of work for the Bray Foundation; and events collided for the two sisters once more when Aliereth, tired as always of the attention her family had drawn on Earth for decades, proposed to relocate to the Haumea Colony on the suggestion of family friend Gunnar Arnason, while Caithlin had likewise seen some information on the colony during her work for the Brays, and both women felt it might be an appropriate place to relocate what remained of their family, far from the scrutiny and threats of life for those like them in either the center of the Federation or the remains of the Empire.
