Personal History Sibyl’s childhood centered around life aboard the freighter “Third Noon” where she was primarily raised by her human father and the small crew that operated more or less like a family. Her Betazoid birth mother gave up custody to her human Father when she was too young to remember. Her mother doesn’t stay in touch very much, seeming to focus on other life and new family and other than occasional well wishing, Sybyl is alright with the arrangement.

She was very content with life aboard the freighter. Her father included her in almost anything in the business and operations, such that the crew treated her with deference as well. She didn’t grow up around a lot of other kids so although she was naturally enough playful and inquisitive, she also took on a very responsible and ambitious adult personna from a very young age.

Although there were many amazing sights to see, cultures to engage with and business transactions to learn, Sibyl had a lot of time on her hands aboard ship and spent much of it reading and researching and filling her mind. She was often preparing for the next world they were traveling to, learning about the language, customs, and history, and preparing to visit. Sibyl maintains a detailed and lengthy log of all of her experiences abroad to this day, one which she began alongside her father as soon as she could talk into the computer.

She prefers reading classics, non fiction, and biographies and was largely self educated through application and experience and satiating curiosity. Her father had her prep for and take exams for educational credit and she found them none to difficult. She also learned to read technical manuals, observed ship mechanics and assisted, and as a teen was trained to pilot the delivery shuttle pods.

She was a versatile and valued member of the crew of the Third Noon and they would have kept her on, but Sibyl wanted to strike out on her own when she came of age. For four years she became a Merchant Mariner, cross trained in engineering, piloting, and security and serving on vessels with large payloads and very small crews who had to be multi disciplinary. She developed a love of long, quiet personal time and was comfortable with the kind of loneliness that might drive others kind of crazy. On one of her runs with the Merchant Marines, she got involved with Cliff Bauer, another Merchant Mariner. They passed the time getting close to one another, and ended the trip by tying the knot at the next port of call. At the time, Sibyl was 20 and Cliff was 25.

But the bliss of marrying young was temporary, and Sibyl grew frustrated. After a second haul as a married couple, the next port of call was nothing but bickering between them. She and Cliff had too much of each other inside of just a year and change, and by her 22nd birthday she decided they needed to separate. Cliff talked her out of breaking up the marriage. And she left for Starfleet Academy, looking to improve her skill sets, change the pace, and start a new career.

Although she killed it in the academics department at Academy, she felt like a duck out of water socially, being slightly older and already more experienced than most of her peers. She opted for training in tactics and political sciences and made an effort to improve her skills physically, joining track and putting in time on the phaser range, hoping to round herself out as more than just a brainy kid and become a capable officer in the general Security and Tactical track. Also Sibyl discovered that the more activities she could fill her schedule with, the less awkward it would be trying to fit in with everyone else.

Sibyl served as a junior officer aboard the USS Juno, and was given multiple short mission assignments before being promoted to Lieutenant and assigned to Chief Tactical Officer aboard the USS Eagle. When the Eagle's crew was rotated out, she decided to try out something completely different than her nonstop life of travel, and asked for reassignment to Obsidian Command where one of her fellow crewmates and friend, Ethan Brash, who she finds simultaneously endearing and annoying, but is the closest tie she currently keeps.

The realization that she's got so few life friends and is indefinitely separated but not divorced has recently been a point of contemplation for Sibyl. She's not sure she knows how to "settle down" but she figures on giving it a shot.
