A member of the Ultanos household, Alessa is a kind-hearted soul who shares her father's tolerance. Her humility has made her an exellent choice as a diplomat.
Appearance and PersonalityEdit
The first thing to notice on her are the elaborate outfits. Being a member of the ruling family she has a ready access to luxury and makes little attempt to hide it. She is often seen wearing ornate jewelery and gilded dresses, painstakingly keeping herself imaculate. She is a slim figure and inheriting her family's auburn scales and golden eyes. Her face is rounded and constantly displays a smile.
Her attitude is one of a caring and affectionate young girl. Unlike her brothers she is not too keen on fighting and knows when to draw to fighting parties apart. She speaks with a cheerful and calming attitude and her voice is smooth and high pitched for her species (this tone is comparable to a soft-spoken human male) and will rarely break out in anger. She can be exiteable and is known to quickly warm to outsiders. This personality makes her seem uncharacteristically open for her species which only reinforces the idea of being a diplomat. She is completely devoted to her father Uriel and refers to him simply as 'father' rather than by title or nickname.
She was born into the Ultanos line shortly after her father's coronation and grew up in the expansive grounds of the imperial palace. At first she was shy - her brothers would tell scary stories of the Blood Dragons and what they did to lone little girls (all of which were false) - avoiding the dragons and sometimes not entering a corridor they were posted in. This period ended when a brother-captain had heard of this and asked Uriel to set things straight; Uriel visited his daughter and told her the whole reason the blood dragons were there was to keep the house safe and that nothing bad is supposed to happen when they are around.
Uriel and several others offered to boost her confidence and she developed into a calm young girl. Not keen on actively fighting she was tutored in finer arts along with self-defence classes. When she was in her late 20s she would often visit the markets, forever intrigued by both the variety of alien life that bought and sold and the beautiful jewelery and clothing on offer. Her days would be spent not just observing the plethora of life but studying these same aliens in books and exonet articles. When she reached 40 she asked if she could be excused from military service. Although the lord admiral protested, stating that military service is what kept the empire standing, Uriel disagreed. Feeling that her self-defence classes were enough he felt she should spend a decade travelling and meeting other cultures. Sometimes she would join her father on expeditions and on first-contact missions. She learned from experience and many - both inside and outside the empire - wondered if she was of the same blood as the rest of the draconis.
When analysts had finally translated stray transmissions from the Confederacy of Allied Systems it was decided that Alessa would personally meet with them. Until now the draconis had not encountered a civilization as expansive as theirs but this was to soon change. After analysts organised the translations into a primer, Alessa spent a year studying some of the translated languages and what aspects of their culture were found in the transmissions. A week ago she joined an expeditionary team and boarded the gloyhunter-class TNSS Micas. The expedition was tasked with making first contact and headed through a wormhole in the Tholfame-5 Sector which led to an inner-rim exit point at the borders of Andromedan CAS territory.
