Physical Description Cute more than pretty seems to describe Piper - Her skin is a light pale, and a spattering of freckles gives her the look of a light irish, along with the green eyes and shoulder-length auburn hair. She has the lean figure of a runner but has the raw muscle tone of someone who's worked hard for their entire life. Her smile is quick and mischievous, and her oft-heard laughter is infectious. When on-duty, her uniform of choice tends to be work coveralls and is often smudged somewhere due to her labor and it wouldn't be unusual for grease or grit to be spotted on hands or face. Piper has a long sinuous and ragged scar that radiates from her right shoulder, across her back to her right hip which was caused by a plasma burn received while working on a faulty propulsion system. Her left arm also spots a full sleeve tattoo of dancing Celtic knotwork of intricate design.

Personality & Traits

General Overview A sweet disposition mixed with a fiery temper make Piper quite a handful at times. Her oft displayed carefree attitude belies the cunning mind of this rather apt Engineer's Mate. Despite her apparent youth and nonchalance, however, Piper shows great intelligence and decisiveness in her actions, as well as a great resourcefulness in times of need. She works very well with others, despite her rather rough-neck upbringing and lack of a more formal education prior to joining Starfleet. She can be prone to stubbornness but attempts always to do the right thing. She regards the opinions of Officers as being interference, as the real workings of any starship are handled by the boots-on-the-ground grunts like herself.
Strengths & Weaknesses Often, Piper's stubborn nature comes out when she chooses her own way to complete a task over the more standard and uniform practice. She is learned in her craft and has very little difficulty conversing in technical jargon with her peers. As such, she's a bit rough around the edges as the fairer sex would be considered, and often thinks of herself as "one of the guys" more often than not. When it comes to work, Piper has a notorious problem with letting things go and often insists on taking care of projects herself especially if something she perceives is not being done properly.

Piper tends to have a little trouble falling in with authority, and often has minor disagreements with Officers. She tends to hold more respect for the Enlisted above her, as the redhead feels they actually earned their positions.
Ambitions Piper's greatest ambition is simply to prove herself as a competent worker. She was forever in the shadow of her elder brothers growing up, and being the only female, she had to work hard to prove her worth. In truth, she was never looked down upon by her siblings or her father, but Piper had something of an inferiority complex because she was the only girl.
Hobbies & Interests Piper enjoys tinkering with small engineering mysteries, and like any good mechanically inclined person tries to make things run smoother and more efficient. When she's not on duty, she can still often be found in the Engineering bays whittling away at some problem that she has devised and improvising various techniques.

When she's not tinkering with her toys, the redheaded Engineer indulges in a most secretive interest of hers: romance novels. Despite her gruff exterior, Piper always had a fond loving of the gaudy romance novels, whose cover art depicted the bare-chested hero saving the buxom damsel in distress. The steamy parts were often bookmarked and read thoroughly many times in perhaps an ironic manner as Piper herself was rather inexperienced. Still, there's much joy in reading the exploits of others...
