Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Mao Xian An Zhu, or "Xian Zhu" when put into the usual Starfleet arrangement, is a headstrong engineer who still hasn't quite gotten over the untimely death of her husband.|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Xian is obstinate, self-willed and sees herself in her work. If the ship is in a poor state then she, also sees herself as being in a similar state. As such she is driven to keep "her" ship working as efficiently as she can keep it. She is not, however, a workaholic by any means, and understands the importance of downtime.|
|Ambitions||To design a new type of Starship and see it put into use by either, or most preferably both, Starfleet as well as the Lagashi.
|Hobbies & Interests||She's quite interested in Terran card games; specifically poker, though she has no idea how to play. She also enjoys painting, taking machines apart, and holo-novels.|
|Personal History||Born Mao Xian to Mao Chang and Mao Fei-Yen Xian was brought up in a relatively moderately middle-class environment on the 'Song of the Stars' arcology. From an early age she could be found disassembling and then re-assembling various household items. Or rather... attempting to re-assemble them. Her family still likes to bring up the time she "improved" the replicator and wound up crossing the system into the lighting network of that entire floor. Every time someone tried to replicate something for the better part of the day walking through that level of the arcology was like walking through a rave.
When she turned sixteen she moved from 'Song of the Stars' to the planet side arcology 'Praising Flawless Sky.' There she joined the LSN as an Engineer and eventually her husband; Zhu Bihai. She was genuinely in love with Bihai and when he proposed that they enter into a marriage contract that included a woman she didn't know, Nihei Eri, she accepted. She got on with Eri well enough, though for the most part Xian was away as part of her duties with the LSN.
At the beginning of her seventh year of service with the LSN she was sent to a Federation ship as part of an officer exchange program on board the Excalibur class vessel of the same name. She'd nearly arrived when she the news of her husband's death reached her. Rather than returning home she kept heading for the new assignment. The notion of returning to 'Praising Flawless Sky' and that home she'd shared with Bihai... there was no way she could do a thing like that.
