Short Description: The young looking First Officer and Chief Engineer of the USS Vesuvius, or was before ending up on Twisted.

Yoiko Hax
Yoiko is a very slender woman, easily mistaken for someone younger than she is. Of course living with humans and their short life spans makes everyone seem too young or too old by comparison. Running down to the middle of her back when it's not tied back, the woman's long "lemon tea" blonde hair is usually pulled down to cover the two rows of easily visible spots running down the sides of her face and literally all the way down her body to her toes. It's not because she's ashamed of them, she's very proud of her heritage. She just doesn't like answer questions about them. Typically the woman wears the red shirt and black pants uniform of the USS Vesuvius, even if she isn't onboard ship anymore. While easily covered by the dark blue denim jacket she tends to wear, her uniform even bears the emblem of the ship stitched onto her left breast with the spiral insignia of the Engineering Department. As soon as she can find a new one, she'll also be wearing a heavy duty tool belt - an old habit she's never kicked. Often she'll wear the jacket around her waist just to have the feeling of the weight she's missing. Unlike most enlisted officers in Starfleet, Yoiko constantly wears a pair of round, slightly tinted, glasses due to an allergy that prevents her from taking corrective eyesight drugs like Retinax V.
Yoiko Hax
Aside from over a decade of engineering, warp propulsion, and warp physics studies, Yoiko is highly skilled at mental calculations and problem solving. She has a knack for being able to learn new technologies extremely quickly and repair almost any device she comes in contact with if allowed to spend enough time studying it. Being a member of the Trill race she also is quick to heal from light wounds, has a natural immunity to toxins and a heightened degree of radiation resistance than her human counterparts - not to mention a longer general life span.

In 2264 Yoiko was joined to the Hax Symbiont.

This slug-like creature lives inside of her body and cannot be removed by any means without killing the host body. The Trill race have a large amount of secrecy regarding the Symbionts, and are extremely hesitant mentioning their existence to outsiders. Regardless, it is considered to be a great honor to be chosen to be a host. The selection process can take years before a Trill is chosen to become one and even longer before a suitable pairing is decided. The Symbionts carry on the memories of each host they've bonded with and since joining with Hax, Yoiko can now recall the lives of the two previous hosts as though she'd lived them herself. Those hosts being Daemon - a Dilithium miner and Linda - a practiced cellist.

A side effect of those new lifetimes, Yoiko has become highly sarcastic and outspoken. A direct contrast to the shy, quiet girl she once was. Randomly she will pick up other habits of those previous hosts unconsciously as well, especially if she's speaking about them at the time. These can range from minor things like chewing her nails to more obvious things like being quick to jump at the chance to drink - even though she has very little tolerance to alcohol...

Background

Born on the planet Trillius Prime, often shortened to just Trill, Yoiko grew up in a small family and spent most of her time with her nose in a book reading about various technologies and propulsion systems. While she could have stayed on her home world and joined the esteemed Trill Science Academy, Yoiko had her sights set on exploring space and jumped at a possibility to sign up for Starfleet. For the next ten years she lived and breathed nothing but advanced warp theory until she worked her way into becoming the Chief Engineer of the USS Vesuvius.

Along with the ship's Captain, Jonathon Munster, the two created a working prototype for the warp engines that would one day replace the standard for interstellar flight. Unfortunately due to the strain caused by the ship's warp nacelles, the engine ripped the Vesuvius apart during its initial tests, setting back the project several years and costing them the life of the ship's doctor. The tests where conclusive enough to have the Vesuvius repaired and put back into semi-active status with a new version of the engine along for the ride. During the next two years of light service the USS Vesuvius took part in many off the record technology experiments and became a test bed for projects the public was not supposed to know about.

Eventually a successful test of an upgraded ship's sensors discovered a planetoid inside a black hole that supported life. An away party was immediately sent to investigate consisting of Yoiko, the Captain, and the ship's Chief Helmsman, Lieutenant Mark Galpin. Yoiko did the calculations herself making her feel all the more guilty when the effects of the black hole caused her to materialize on Twisted alone with no hope of getting back...[1]

Currently Yoiko has been taking odd jobs around Twisted while she studies for more information about the nature of the world she's found herself in. Given the nature of Twisted she's ignored the Prime Directive, giving technology from her time period to the people of Twisted. Among other things she's responsible for the transporter network used by TASK members for getting around the cities. [2]
