Personality & Traits
|General Overview||The Performer – ESFP Personality
Claire is a light hearted individual, frequently joking and teasing people she gets along with. She is new to Starfleet structure, so she is used to living her life on a loose schedule. She's very curious about life outside Federation space, especially in regions that haven't been explored very thoroughly.
Claire is fairly casual in her interactions, fairly comfortable assuming a joking or flirty mood. She hasn't really ascribed to the professionalism of Starfleet yet, which occasionally gets her in trouble. But she's relatively well behaved, so it tends to be nothing to severe. Captain Reynolds' looser command style is a good fit for her.

+ Highly respectful of other cultures and beliefs
+ High Aptitude for various branches of the scientific field

- Not used to an organized structure, and occasionally abrasive toward such structures
- No combat training

|Ambitions||Claire isn't looking to achieve anything in particular, past experiencing many of the cultures of the Alpha Quadrant. If she really had to choose a goal, she might want to be Ambassador or Captain of a Science Vessel someday.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Swimming, running, rock climbing, debate, dancing, competitive games of any sort, dressing up, and reading.
|Personal History||Claire Lafayette grew up in the outskirts of Quebec on Earth. An only child of two civilians, she was very close with her parents and spent most of her life on the civilian side of the Federation.
She attended the standard education system up through secondary, but chose to go to a University back on Earth, rather than going to Starfleet Academy. Academy life was never really for her and she never even considered enlisting. Her studies focused largely on Astrometric Studies. She spent years studying on Earth and various other civilian facilities, but found it less fulfilling than she expected. As time went on, she found that the easiest way for her to explore the stars would be to join Starfleet.
She joined as a Non Commissioned Officer, slowly rising through the ranks as she found another aptitude: Planetary Sciences. Though not especially experienced in some fields of science, she had a good general knowledge and picked up new topics quickly. Eventually, she found herself aboard the majestic Starbase Arcadia, using its advanced long range sensors to observe the bizarre phenomena of the surrounding space.
Eventually, she decided to seek out a more adventurous posting, and joined the Defiant science division just before the vessel's tango with the Entity of the Volan Expanse. She remained aboard and eventually passed her officer's test, becoming a Starfleet Ensign.
