Personality & Traits

General Overview Gabrielle is a gentle soul, though she has a vicious streak if someone she cares about is in danger. Generally, though, she is soft spoken and carefree. She is a fan of art in all of its forms and frequently appreciates beauty in the simpler things.

Despite her laid back and carefree attitude, she is still lethal in combat once provoked. She prefers killing strokes, not wanting anyone to suffer, and will enact them to protect those in her charge.
Strengths & Weaknesses Gabrielle is hard to anger and generally an easy going person. She possesses the training necessary to kill, but she has yet to take a life for real. She is somewhat skilled as a marksman and graceful with short blades. She is physically not as strong as people usually expect a marine to be, owing to her lithe frame. Some feel that she lacks proper discipline to be a marine, and some others feel that she lacks enough to be an officer in Starfleet at all.
Ambitions Gabrielle is a protector, through and through. She wants to be on the front lines protecting everyone possible, not wanting anyone to go through what her family did.
Hobbies & Interests Gabrielle loves to dance and write poetry more than anything. She uses dance as her workout in many cases. She also loves appreciating artwork of various cultures, fascinated by what others perceive as beauty.

Personal History Gabrielle was born to Mark and Emily Sorenson in a small cottage on Earth. Her 5 year old brother, Michael, was immediately wrapped around her finger from the moment she first cooed at him. They grew up nearly inseparable as the years passed. When Gabrielle was 5, another new little life was brought into the world by her parents, her sister Rebecca was born.

The family was very close and loved each other very much. Michael initially protected Gabrielle from the schoolyard bullies and whatever else came her way, but that dynamic shifted when Rebecca was born. Gabrielle learned from her brother how best to protect the little one and did so without a second thought.

Gabrielle loved dancing as a child, and her parents actively encouraged her to continue honing it into a craft of beauty. She taught her sister as well, but Rebecca didn't have quite the same talent for rhythm that Gabrielle had (not that she didn't enjoy twirling with her sister anyway). Her entire family never missed a single recital, as it was the most important thing to her next to them.

When Michael turned 18, he joined the Starfleet Marine Corps. While this didn't come as a shock, it did come with worry. Their parents were concerned with what might happen to him, but they didn't want to stand in the way of his dreams. Michael left for training and the Academy, becoming a commissioned officer.

Shortly into his first assignment, the Sorensons received the news that they dreaded the most. Michael had perished in the line of duty. Gabrielle did the one thing that her parents had never expected her to do and signed up the next day. She thought to herself that if they had been together, they could have protected each other.

Gabrielle joined the Academy as well, earning her commission and her first assignment after her four years.
