[b]Name:[/b] Eris Baladeva
[b]Naval Rank:[/b] Ensign
[b]Job on the ship:[/b] Astrogator (Star Navigation)
[b]History:[/b] Born to a Preacher and raised in a Christian family, Eris has always been closed to God. Family put the pressure on her to learn Theology, take a career related to the church. Eris, on the other hand, had much grander ideas. She had a knack for science. A real natural talent for understanding even the most complicated mathematics. At first, this worried her father that she might take a turn towards Atheism and turn her back on her faith. But her joy with science had the opposite effect. Eris fully believes that [i]because[/i] the universe is so intricately designed with such a complex perfection that this is proof of a divine existence. Relieved in his daughter’s devotion to god, the Preacher made sure Eris had the finest education. The majority of her interests being on star travel, which has now led to a solid place on the [i]Manifest[/i] as a lead navigator.
[b]Appearance:[/b] Standing 5’2″ and having a boyish figure, Eris can often be mistaken as a 12 year old boy rather than a full grown 24 year old woman. She has let her dark brown hair grow to mid back in an effort to prove she’s a girl. Bright blue eyes, and always wears a beaded necklace sporting a silver charm.
[b]Motivation:[/b] Eris wants to travel the stars and bring herself closer to God. Unravel more mysteries of the universe. And maybe even a vain, arrogant wish to prove God is indeed real.
