Other Family

Personality & Traits

General Overview She has great confidence in herself and others, even when others don't. Because of her position, she generally doesn't see people as their ranks the way others in Starfleet do and will often address people by their first names, which she makes a point of learning how to pronounce. She is also always encouraging people to schedule their next counseling session.
Strengths & Weaknesses Kanani sees herself as a counselor first and a Starfleet officer second, which makes her a good counselor and a bad officer. She does not get intimidated by people or situations, which can lead her to underestimate the situations she gets herself into. She also believes that talking about a situation can only make it better, which is not how most people see it.
Ambitions Kanani would eventually like to be assigned to one of the larger stations so that she can serve a larger population, while still getting some excitement from space, and being able to settle somewhat and have a nuclear family.
Hobbies & Interests She believes well-rounded health encompasses balancing all aspects of life. As a result, she enjoys spending time socializing, engaging in physical activity, meditating, and generally relaxing.

Personal History Kanani was born in Pleasanton, outside of San Francisco. Her mother worked security at Starfleet Headquarters and her father was a holo-novelist.

When she was 7 she was a witness to the Breen attack on Earth. It did not affect her as much as it affected her parents, but the whole family started going to therapy as a result.

Her mother was diagnosed with PTSD and went through a lot of treatment for her symptoms. Over time, Kanani became interested in the work doctors were doing with her mother and decided to become a counselor herself.

She went to the Academy and afterward went straight to the USS Eagle.
