Personality At first glance, Valyre seems to be laid back and gentle, but upon closer examination she proves to be much tougher, both physically and mentally, than she looks. Like the four hosts before her, she shares what Reen's Guardian calls the “Reen Hero Complex”, an unusual trait that all five of Reen's hosts have had. She is more likely to put her own life on the line than anyone else's and often treats dangerous situations as games. Valyre is intensely protective of her patients and the crew she serves. She is also highly competitive and intuitive.
Skills, Hobbies & Interests Though clumsy and somewhat accident-prone, Valyre occasionally indulges in holodeck simulations with the safeties turned to maximum. She also spends quite a bit of time doing crafty projects, such as pottery and jewelery making.
Ambitions Valyre's ultimate goal is to retire from Starfleet and have her own private clinic in a rural region of Trill.

Personal History Valyre was born aboard the USS Aries in the spring of 2344. Her mother, Ellyn, was the ship's commander, and her father, Markis, served as a civilian counselor. From the moment she learned to crawl, Valyre was constantly getting into things, and often getting into trouble. As one of only a few children aboard the Aries, Valyre did not have many friends growing up and made up for it by playing games alone. Often these games ended with a trip to sickbay.

As she got older, Valyre did not stop exploring the ship or getting hurt while doing it. Her fascination with every nook and cranny on the Aries led her to consider Starfleet as she neared her eighteenth birthday.

Too accident prone for anything extremely physical, Valyre took the medical track. Though she did struggle some initially with the lecture portion of the classes, she adapted quickly and was soon doing well.

Fresh out of the academy, she was assigned to the USS Gryphon as a junior medical officer. Though junior officers were often pushed aside during real emergencies, Valyre pushed back, fighting for her right to absorb as much information and practice her craft as often as she could. Her skills grew quickly, and by the time she left the Gryphon, she had advanced out of the junior ranks. From there she moved to the Pisces, as requested by Starfleet due to a lack of medical officers on board.

After six years on the Pisces, a posting on the Columbia for Assistant Chief Medical Officer became available, and Valyre requested transfer. Though the commander of the Pisces was sad to see her leave, he wished her luck as her career advanced.

Valyre flourished on the Columbia, quickly becoming their first choice for certain types of procedures, especially trauma. Despite no specific trauma surgery education, she excelled in it and was often at her happiest and most peaceful during those cases. When the Chief Medical Officer on the Columbia retired, Valyre took his place and remained with the ship until it was decommissioned in 2389, at which time she moved to the Odyssey as Chief medical Officer.
