Physical Description Bella is definitely human, but also definitely alien looking. She is on the shorter side considering she is a marine, but her constant training gives her only a 4% body fat ratio. Her hair, is purple, which isn't her real hair color, just the color she prefers, is kept in a short pixie cut and her eyes ,which are also purple have been enhanced to that color. She sports to facial tattoos, a purplish gray slash that cuts through her right eye and then the same design and color tattoo under her left eye.

Bella's skin color is natural and is a reddish violet color. Growing up on Calias III colony in the Beta Quadrant has given most of the humans in her colony a purplish tint. Their sun, Calias gives off a significant amount of radiation and so their bodies, over time have learned to deal with the radiation and part of the change was the skin color.

Biologically, she is human and most of her colony is born with normal shades of skin color. As they get older, they get more purple.

Still, it give Bella a very unique appearance and coupled with her tone body, makes her very attractive. She is usually in uniform while on duty, and while off duty, sports mostly workout clothes.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Bella, despite her name, is a very intense person. Being on the smaller size and female, she had to work twice as hard to be accepted into the Marine Corp, and then to be accepted by her squad mates. Several advances by larger males on her team were quickly put down and they grew to respect her and leave her alone.

Even when off duty, she is thinking of her duty. She is aggressive and physical. She does not have much of a sense of humor and is quick to attack.
Strengths & Weaknesses Strengths - Has a mind for small group tactics and logistics. She backs up her words with action and won't ask anyone to do something that she won't do. When in charge, she leads from the front.

Weaknesses - She has a very sharp wit and can rub fleeters the wrong way. She can be crass and she speaks her mind. She can be quick to anger.
Ambitions To command a detachment of commandos.
Hobbies & Interests She loves anything active - climbing, shooting, running, triathalons, etc. She isn't much of a bookworm, but she does enjoy historical accounts of past wars.

Personal History Bella grew up on Calias III, a small Federation colony of only 75,000 people. Due to the radiation, all colonist's skin would start to turn shades of purple as the aged. Only the strong survived on the planet and the people, plants, and animals were sturdy and fought for existence. Because of that, luxuries were few and far between. This set into Bella's mindset. Due to limited natural resources, each family could only have 2 kids.

Starfleet patrols were frequent and they opened Bella's eyes up to the world beyond her world. As soon as she was of age, she applied to Starfleet Academy and was accepted. At first, she went the tactical/security route, but she was getting into trouble for being too aggressive. At the end of her first year, her instructors recommended that she transfer to the marines.

At first, because of her size and beauty, comments were made about her and several of her squad mates tried to take certain "liberties" with Bella. After breaking their arms and collarbones, most marines knew better than to do such activities. By her graduation, she had earned the respect of her peers.

After graduation, the next 4 years were a bit of a blur. Raptor Division was assign to Alpha Quadrant and they were used as rapid response forces. Most of her time was spent dealing with mercs and pirate bands, but she did see action against several governments. She advanced in ranks steadily, becoming a Lance Corporal in 3 years.

As the start of 2388, she was promoted to the rank of Corporal and was given the choice of going back to the Academy to help train Marines or to join the USS Vindex's Marine Detachment. Not wanting to go back to Earth, she opted for the latter.
