Personal History Childhood on Risa

Astrid was born in the year 2364 in Nuvia, the capital city of the popular pleasure planet Risa to parents Tormund and Illia Pavone. A sibling, Senua, followed two years later. Astrid and Senua would form an especially close sisterly bond growing up in the beautiful scenery of their home world and enjoyed a wholesome and fulfilling childhood. Their parents were both doctors and so instilled in their children an early interest in academia and intellectual pursuits that would serve them well in later life. Astrid was the more boisterous of the two sisters and would regularly get involved in scuffles and fights with fellow children at school. Concerned for their daughter, Tormund and Illia were considering sending Astrid to a disciplinarian school and away from the family. During the trip, the shuttle was involved in an accident that left Senua with life threatening injuries. Watching her parents and other medics save her sisters life was the turning point that Astrid needed.

School and Further Education, taking control

Taking more responsibility for her actions and becoming more mature and focused following the shuttle accident, Astrid’s academic progress quickly skyrocketed. She wanted to do one thing with her life and that was to save lives. Attaining top academic scores, Astrid successfully applied to the prestigious Nuvia Medical Institute to begin her medical training. During her studies she took up an interest in the field of emergency medicine, the treatment of the most acutely ill. This was spurred on by her father who was actively involved in the treatment of Dominion War veterans with long term conditions. Her sister Senua, followed suit when she was old enough and she too gained entry into the institute, determined to follow her sister and keep up with the family tradition.

Starfleet Medical School, expanding the boundaries

Upon graduation and attaining her Medical Degree, Astrid was keen to broaden her horizons from the paradise planet and see what else the galaxy had to offer. A number of her fellow graduates were enrolling with Starfleet and given the front-line nature of the organisation, Astrid knew it was what she wanted. She enrolled in Starfleet Medical School to begin her training as a member of Starfleet. Having lived a somewhat sheltered life on Risa where people tended to want to stay, Astrid's eyes were opened to the infinite possibilities the universe had to offer. She took a keen interest in the theory of practicing medicine on previously undiscovered species and in treating battlefield casualties. The medical cadets of Starfleet are typically a group within a group, academically gifted, ambitious and driven individuals with a passion for science and medicine. Astrid made plenty of friends and even some enemies.

First Posting and the Present

Upon graduation from Starfleet Medical Academy, Astrid took up a posting with Starfleet Medical to pursue her interests in the treatment of previously undiscovered species and battlefield medicine. She was afforded the opportunity to conduct her own research and projects with a small team and published a variety of papers to the Federation Science Council. After two years her sister, Senua also graduated from the academy and was posted to the USS Elizabeth. Astrid soon followed suit and applied for a posting she felt would best match her interests.

She found an opening for a Chief Medical Officer aboard a vessel on the far reaches of Federation territory, the USS Valkyrie, which also came with a promotion. There she would discover what the universe had in store for her.
