Physical Description Unlike most Bajorans, Kather was born with the ridge extending from the top of her forehead to the bridge of her nose. This was once the dominant marking, but short-ended breeding changed this feature. She is somewhat muscular and solid, though her stature often leaves her underestimated by opponents. Her long brown hair is always pulled back in a ponytail. Her hazel eyes change color depending on her mood, though what mood goes with what color has never been determined by anyone. Her earring signifies the musical d'jarra.

Personality & Traits

General Overview Lt Acker served as a senior medical officer aboard Deep Space 9. She has been on the base through both attacks by the Klingons and the Dominion. Her initial medical training was on her home planet of Valo II during the occupation by the Cardassians. She attended Starfleet Academy and graduated with honors. Her first position was as a junior medical officer aboard the USS Defiance. She was transferred to Deep Space 9 prior to the attack by the Klingons. She continued to serve as a medical officer after that attack, and was still serving when the Dominion attacked and ultimately took over the station. She was promoted to senior medical officer after Starfleet retook Deep Space 9. She was named as Chief Medical Officer at SFM Revenant. Following an explosion there, she was transferred to the USS Ascension.
Strengths & Weaknesses Calm under pressure, Acker is a bastion of stoicism. She knows her job inside and out, and is the best medical officer from a technical standpoint that any have ever served with. Her lack of bedside manner has kept her from being embraced by her fellow crew members. She is often aloof and prefers spending time alone or with cadavers. Her learned hatred of the Cardassians still burns brightly, and this has kept her from accepting their role in the new Federation alignment. She is good at all methods of fighting, including a deadly proficiency in hand-to-hand combat.
Ambitions She has planned her entire career around leading the medical sciences for all of Starfleet. Every move she has made has this in mind as the end game. Though others in her class at Starfleet Academy have already been promoted to Lieutenant Commander, Acker knows the rank has little to do with the expertise.
Hobbies & Interests Playing the Bajoran deep flute is her favorite past time, though few have ever heard her play it. She enjoys diagramming the physiology of different species.

Personal History Kather Dor Acker was born under brutal conditions in the Bajoran colony of Valo II. This colony was a penal colony commanded by the occupying forces of the Cardassians. She spent her entire childhood as a prisoner. She found no joy in anything. While she loved her grandmother, parents and brother, she found no happiness in the company of others. She earned a reputation of being aloof. After the liberation, she quickly married a man chosen by her father. Almost immediately after the marriage, she left for Starfleet Academy to pursue her dream of one day leading the medical services for all of Starfleet. Her husband stayed behind on Valo II to help rebuild. She has never had children, instead spending nearly all her time on her career. She has risen quickly through the officer ranks due to her diligence, expertise and willingness to place her own life in danger in the service of others. She was one of the few Starfleet personnel to stay behind on Deep Space 9 with the Bajoran Militia during the evacuation.
