Personality & Traits

General Overview Claire is from a privileged background and was given every opportunity to excel as a child. She had high expectations placed on her to succeed and Claire has a never fail attitude. She has a medical degree and has finished her internship in general practice.

She was born on Trilista Colony and some of her earliest childhood memories are from the family's' estate there. She was raised in Scotland though and will sometimes let her Scottish burr slip when tired or drunk.
Strengths & Weaknesses She has a strong drive to never fail, but the calm, cool and collected mask that Claire wears is often covering an inner turmoil of self-doubt.

Her drive to succeed sometimes leads to physical stress as she pushes herself too hard.

Claire loves to indulge a bit too often in Scotch, though not to the point of it impeding on her duties.
Ambitions Claire started her career in Starfleet as a first year Medical doctor. After getting through her internship she has shifted her current focus to Biology. Claire is working through virtual classes on getting a PhD focussed on cellular biology. She thinks the additional study will enhance her medical knowledge.

Personal History Claire is the middle child of three, born into wealth and privilege and the apple of her father's eye. She was spoiled with the finest education and extracurricular activities in her upbringing. With these opportunities came the expectation to live up to the Dunross name, and not only excel, but be the best at what she did.

School and learning came easy for Claire and she was always at the top of her class. She knew from early on in life that she wanted to follow in her mother's footsteps and be a doctor. Though she often finished near the top of her traditional education and medical school classes, Claire was only a mid level Cadet at Starfleet Academy. The military like structure was a difficult for her to slide into and adapt to. She wasn’t used to being rated as average, and it was a blow to her large ego.

As the child of two dynamic, but different people, she was able to pick up the best of each of her parents. She had her father, the leader of the Dunross Corporation, wrapped around her finger. But her mother, a very experienced Starfleet doctor kept Claire's indulgence in check. Claire considers her mother to be her mentor and has learned much under her medical guidance. From her father, she picked up his skill to charm and divert attention from stressful situations, much to her benefit.

Though she grew up in a life of privilege, it was not always sunshine and roses. Both of her parents were quite busy in their careers and being two very different people, but both stubborn and passionate people there was often tension and separation in the family unit.

She is very close to and looks up to her older, very serious brother RJ. They often confide in each other when there is no one else in the family to turn to.

Her baby brother Will, she loves, but does not currently have contact with. He's a bit of a black sheep in the family.
