Focus and drive to accomplish her goals
Despite current tensions between the Federation and the Empire, she still has loyalty to both Starfleet and the Klingon family who sponsored her exchange.

Really, she may be a bit of all of them, but her actions are always tempered with forethought and analysis.
She has worked through much of the trauma from the death of her parents and sister, but that is not to say that is doesn’t still wake her in the middle of the night once in a while.

Personal History Illise was the middle child of three, born at Tananda Bay, the capital city of the Ajilon Prime colony. Her early childhood was typical and rather happy. She especially loved her sister Dana, who was two years younger than her.

In 2373, when Illise was seven years old, the colony was attacked by the Klingon Empire during the Federation-Klingon War, in what became known as the Battle of Ajilon Prime. With the two northern settlements cut off by the Klingons, the Federation set up a base at Tanada Bay where they attempted to evacuate the remaining colonists off-world. The Federation’s defensive line was hard-pressed, as the Klingons used transport scramblers and shot down hoppers, making it very difficult for the Federation forces to either regroup or retreat. The Klingon forces often resorted to hand-to-hand combat, which few of the Federation troops were prepare to handle, and the battles were usually brutal and grisly. The skirmish between the two forces lasted for several days, and was only halted when Jake Sisko collapsed a cave tunnel leading to the settlement, preventing the Klingons from advancing on the settlement. Soon after, the ceasefire between the Klingons and the Federation was reinstated, and the Klingons pulled out. (DS9: Nor the Battle to the Strong)

Illise’s family lived in a small community just outside the Tananda Bay settlement, and was one of those cut off from the evacuation routes when the Klingons advanced. Her brother Brandon was at on a school trip in the settlement at the time and was taken to the base with the other students. Several hoppers were sent to rescue the stranded colonists and bring them to safety. The hopper carrying Illise’s family was shot down by enemy fire. Illise was the only survivor. Only slightly injured, she waited in the wreckage for a day and a night before the federation came. It was widely remarked that she was lucky, since Klingon patrols in the area generally made a point to hunt down crashed hoppers and kill any survivors.

Three days later, the Defiant arrived at the colony and transported the critically wounded to Deep Space Nine for better medical care under the direction of Doctor Julian Bashir. Since their closest living relatives were Starfleet officers at the Academy, Illise and her brother Brandon went with them. After spending two weeks at DS9, they were transported to Earth to live with their aunt and uncle. When he was twenty-one, Brandon returned to the colony. Illise stayed on Earth and attended schools which would put her in the best position to attend Starfleet Academy. She showed much promise in the sciences and received scholarships to further her studies in this area.

Privately, Illise devoured any and all information she could get her hands on about Klingons. Despite what had happened at the colony, she was fascinated by them. When she was fourteen, she took it upon herself to apply to an exchange-type program that would allow her to travel to and study on Qo’nos, to which she was accepted nearly two years later. Her aunt and uncle required quite a bit of convincing, but shortly after she turned sixteen Illise left San Francisco for the Klingon Empire. She stayed with a Klingon family for three years before returning to Earth and applying and gaining acceptance to Starfleet Academy.
