Name Trinity Costa
Position "Bliss" Nightclub Owner/Mercenary
|Living Quarters||Deck 586-687 Civilian Quarters/SS Tri-me|
|Office Location||Deck 586-687 Promenade "Bliss" nightclub|
|Physical Description||Trinity is a sexy, exotic woman with a thin, athletic, curvy build. Her frame is that of someone accustomed to physical activity, the muscle and sinew all in perfect proportions. She wears her hair in two styles. The first of these is just long enough to cover her ears and neck. The second hairdo is long locks that hang well past her shoulders. She has a pierced belly button.
This is a physically fit, beautiful woman who obviously takes pride in her physique and her appearance. Her usual mode of dress is a skintight black vinyl, or leather, body glove and buckled boots. This can vary to Underarmor sleeveless tops and shorts, always black. She dons a trenchcoat when out and about, to cover the two pistols she has on her at all times. Only two, though she has a variety of firearms with her that she chooses from, but only two at a time. This does not include the various blades stashed all over her person.
The two pistols are replicas of Earth .45's of the M1911 designation, with extended barrels having the old flash suppressor style to their snouts. She worked for years on the nano-tech to squeeze the guts of particle weapons into them, making them accurate, wieldy, and aesthetic in appearance.
Tramp stamp: Romulan raptor symbol all the way across.
Left butt cheek: On the outside center of her left butt cheek, from bottom to top, four kitty paws as if a cat had walked up her bum.
Left thigh: A wrap around gothic rose and thorns, one inch in diameter, which includes the words in the Romulan language 'Akhiy Heith' (Black Cat), mixed into the thorns with Olde English script.
Her vocal range is very wide, considering she paid a great sum of latinum to have them genetically altered to provide a better quality of vocal and lyrics, with great range and diversity, a suggestion from her dear friend Bodi Heffa.
|Children||Scattered among the stars|
|Other Family||Surla (Cabal sister) Klingon
Isha (Cabal sister) Romulan
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Trinity appears to breeze through life. She is Lady Luck's companion who seems always to be in the right place at the right time. Naturally, this makes for a cheerful and ebullient disposition. Trinity has her dark moments, but clouds roll over quickly. She is too interested in what is going on tomorrow to fret about what went wrong today.
Trinity has a good heart, although her old soldier and outlaw attitudes sometimes get in the way of that. At first meeting, Trinity seems callous and indifferent, but as she becomes accustomed to someone, she begins to trust and respect them. She is courageous, determined, passionate, and possesses an exceptional strength of character. She has been heard to say that she "Can pass any test a humanoid can pass". With Trinity it is "Learn fast or die", and she is a fast learner. Her quickness in adapting to the moon Gaia and 'The People' is a great example of this. All her life Trinity has displayed great leadership skills and charisma.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||Trinity is hard to pin down emotionally. She doesn't welcome enduring, profound relationships. Sooner or later she'll un-knot the ties that bind. She is cynical and can be disagreeable, often seeming to be self-centered. Deep down she is exceedingly loyal to her friends, and a good woman. However, should those friends turn out to be threats to the UFP she will end them herself, in any way befitting the offense.
Trinity is a tough female John Wayne style starpilot, a cowgirl in a starship--simple, sentimental in her own way, and cocksure.
For the past fifty-three years Trinity has been a black ops. agent, seeking out and destroying all threats to the Federation before they come to fruition, or those threats she is ordered to neutralize. It is what she does and who she is. If Starfleet officers and civilians need to die to accomplish that goal, then that's what needs to be done. The UFP comes first. There is such a thing as justifiable homicide. With an eidetic memory and contacts across all four quadrants, Trinity is a formidable individual.
She is a skilled and resourceful warrior who adapts to environments with a quick mind and resilience. She is agile and is quite skilled in the use of a bow and arrow, as well as other non-powered weapons such as swords, crossbows, etc.
Trinity is a skilled hand-to-hand combatant with abilities in several mixed martial arts, and adding in her genetic enhancements and her agility, almost unstoppable once she gets rolling.
Costa is a gifted woman in the ways of espionage, tactics, guerilla warfare, and clandestine operations, all due to her previous involvement in the INVICTUS organization as an assassin and infiltrator. The flexibility of her nature is a large part of her success. The woman sensitive enough to tread lightly among Klingons in the manner of their culture, is the same who sees the plain necessity in destroying a threat to the Federation, without remorse.
Trinity has a strong moral center and devotion to the values she finds embodied in the Federation, spending portions of her long life in its service and defense. In numerous incidents, she has risked her life for causes she deemed just, and will always do so.
Beyond her apparent skills, Trinity exhibits a comprehensive knowledge of starship systems. She is capable of scrambling up a Jefferies tube to effect the necessary repairs, at any time, no matter the circumstances.
The demands of Trinity's career, and lifestyle, require her best possible health, and in this endeavor she is always staying physically fit. She spars with beings regularly, not to mention lots of aerobics and physically demanding exercises.
Trinity's mercenary life often brings her into close proximity with enemies, often resulting in hand-to-hand combat. Her idiosyncratic martial-arts style uses hand-chops to the neck, wrestling and Judo throws, round-house punches, two-fisted swings and open-hand slaps in varying combinations, and even drop kicks. Combined with her MMA training, it makes her a foe to be reckoned with. In addition, Trinity regularly performs dives and rolls, either to evade phaser-fire or to attack an opponent, thereby often jumping off walls and other fixed elements, similar to the old film star Jackie Chan.
While serving in Ministry of Security on Chulak, completed training in reconnaisance and retrieval; immediately dispatched to apprehend several rogue operatives, with mixed success.
Was a member of the Vulcan Science Directorate, and is quite an accomplished scientist in her own right, able to come into a new find and adapt accordingly. She may not be the best at every field, but she has knowledge in various disciplines, and is not hard pressed to learn a new direction once she focuses on it.
The poem she has memorized, and in a frame on the wall in her home:
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
By William Ernest Henley
|Ambitions||Life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness.|
|Hobbies & Interests||Trinity is an accomplished musician and singer, and her favorite instruments are the drums and guitar of Earth; especially for rock bands. Trinity dated the musician/club owner Link Mazzeo for little over a year and played in his band "link" while involved, as she did before and after they were together. This is one persona she uses as an infiltrator, having formed the cover band for Earth music; The Saints of Bliss. Beyond her music, Trinity also loves to train in her martial arts, weapons, and technical skills. The smallest task is another means by which to practice. She hunts, hikes, goes fishing, and does just about everything else that comes to mind. Weight lifting and core training are a big favorite, keeping her healthy and strong for her life behind the scenes.
Despite her wild lifestyle, Trinity is still a lover of quiet times and meditation to keep herself balanced and her mind in tune. Having served in both Starfleet (her records are classified: TOP SECRET since she served in the 2150's aboard the NX-01 Enterprise under Captain Jonathan Archer) and the Nyberrite Alliance, she is well versed in military doctrine, weapons, and protocols.
|Language||Fed Standard, and a plethora of others|
|Personal History||Wandering the galaxy for over four centuries, Trinity has seen and done almost everything. Arriving at a small, blue world warmed by a yellow star, she discovered humanity. Looking exactly like them, and cloaking her ship, Trinity joined the Human race on their world. She took on the last name Costa, and infiltrated into their various cultures. Her many personas would be music producers, eccentric artists, you name it. People who stayed out of the limelight, not overly well known, and then they would die some obscure death of her devising. When a persona died she would leave Earth and go explore the galaxy, but return again years later to take up another persona. This is how she learned all she has about being human, and it shows in her character.
Centuries went by while she played these roles and returned for another go, seeing much of Earth history in doing so. In her travels across the stars she learned hundreds of languages, met thousands of people, and took part in conflicts to free beings from oppression. As both Starfleet and the Federation were coming to fruition, she was there. She served honorably in Starfleet, but then had to fake her death to be able to un-knot herself from the binding relationship. INVICTUS discovered evidence to the contrary, being a Federation Intelligence organization, and once they caught up with her they recruited her to their ranks. Something she dove headlong into as she saw the Federation growing into a government that she could support. After the Borg had scattered her race to the four corners of the galaxy, the UFP looked to be able to grow, survive, and prevent that type of thing from ever happening again.
While this was going on, Trinity started to build The Cabal. A scattering of beings across the Alpha and Beta quadrants, no matter their homeworld and culture, pulling them to herself and recruiting for the criminal/trader/mercenary organization. Romulans, Klingons, Cardassians, people in high places around both quadrants, all involved. The catch; they all had to swear to assist her in defending the Federation, when called, no matter what. If they swore the oath then they were allowed to join, and through their actions needed to prove it. Go out, do what you do, but always look to make sure the UFP came out ahead. Yes, many of The Cabal have seen prison time for illicit activities, but they said nothing and did their time quietly, getting released to rejoin their comrades.
Trinity owns the nightclub "Bliss" on 249, a tri-level establishment with a sizable stage for music shows, comedy events, karaoke--whatever. Beyond that she owns her own Danube class runabout, which she has modified far beyond its original specs. It is her baby, and the designation is the SS Tri-me.
Club Bliss: Bar, grill, gaming house, holosuite arcade, and live music venue.
Location: Main entrance-deck 589. Tri-level business, with another back entrance on deck 588 that leads to the second level.
Capacity: 1000, but when packed can reach up to 1500.
This establishment is a multi-level music venue, vibrant and full of life 24-7. Holo-servers are a constant, with openings for real employees for those who wish to work within. There are single occupant dance podiums with either cages or brass poles where scantily clad holo-dancers, male and female, are constantly under a halo of soft light while they perform exotic dancing and go go dancing for the visual enjoyment of patrons. These are also open to hired help. Drinks, food, gossip, gaming, fantasy fulfillment, and live music. With the house band, and cover band, Saints of Bliss performing whenever they feel the mood, with Trinity as a member, this is the core of the live music. Holo-bouncers, along with HANS, keep an eye on all, and immediately step in to lend a hand should fights break out. Bartending is also handled by HANS, Trinity, and holo-people, mostly human in appearance. Again, employment is open to all.
Bliss occupies a central location on the promenade, extending for three levels upwards, and two entrances. Spiral staircases provide patron access to the upper levels. The upper levels the central portion of flooring has been removed with railed balconies overlooking the main floor below. The main entrance/floor is on deck 589, section 5 of the promenade.
Level 1: The main entrance. There is a large bar that curves around with an end coming to stage edge, with steps provided for the band members to ascend to the bar top and perform, walking back and forth the length of it should they feel the need. there is a gambling/gaming section, cordoned off with more rails and lit with soft lighting. Scattered around the main floor are various styles of tables, with a row of buddy bars all around the dance floor, which is also the floor for crowds at stage front. Off to one side is a sunken section, railed off, for the mosh pit. The main entrance, gaming section, and bar are adequately illuminated with soft white lighting, but the rest of the interior is done up in black lights, with normal lighting available should an incident occur. The periphery lighting is designed to provide a degree of privacy for business deals and covert exchanges that might occur.
Level 2: Provides more tables and seating, with soft lights placed strategically amidst the other lighting. The second-level entrance is located here.
Level 3: This level has no seating, but plenty of standing room along the rail, and always kept shadowy. There are four holosuites here for patron enjoyment.
The interior of Bliss is dominated by an all black color scheme, with distinctive purple and gold murals all around the establishment and brass poles that extend up through the cutout sections of the upper levels. Several of the walls have holo-emitters specifically for bringing up large monitors embedded into the walls, one of which is directly over the stage when activated, up and behind the main drum set. There is a large storeroom where stocks of food and drink are kept for the bar. The kitchen is sizable, but not overly large, and is in the back with the store room and unseen by patrons. There is also a floor vault for latinum and other takings from the day's business.
Behind the bar:
The shelving for the bar is placed on the back wall, which is a soft light panel. It is lit enough for bartenders to see what they are doing, but not bright enough to disturb the ambiance of the rest of the club. There is a light panel that runs the length of the bar, patron side, just under the edge, providing enough illumination for people to see to walk around near it. The number of drinks and colored glasses is staggering, with Bliss serving just about every type of booze known to the Alpha and Beta quadrants. There are two replicators, a computer access terminal and a selection of isolinear rods containing programs for the holosuites behind the bar.
Most foods in the club are replicated, but when a patron desires a cooked meal, then the holo-chef provides, with his holo kitchen staff. Drinks, however, are made fresh from the stocks, and even replicated when patrons desire. Trinity has a private stock of booze kept in the back, and she shares with very few or with VIP patrons. Due to her friendship with the Klingon Surla, there are always barrels of bloodwine kept in the store room.
Trinity has no problem being hired to cater events and meetings on the starbase. She and her staff of holo-employees will provide food and drinks with wait service, and she does charge by the head for services rendered.
The casino operates 24-7 with the club. A number of gaming tables are located in the gaming section on level 1, and the dabo table is a popular one. Tongo is played here, and there are even old school dart boards with metal tipped darts, since Trinity hates anything plastic since it just looks cheap. Trinity is not above running betting pools on just about anything.
The holosuite arcade is on level 3. Credit for these holosuites can be purchased at the bar, as can the number of enticing programs for rent. These suites are usually used by visitors for the adult programs, both sensual and sexual in nature, with less benign recreations available as well within the programs.
The staff is mainly holographic, with the waiters being created for their alluring physical appearance. If real people are hired, then they must also meet this criteria, and not be vain. They will be required to wear alluring outfits and show off some skin, but just enough to entice, not be crude. For the females it is usually a go-go outfit, with a belly shirt, frilled skirt, and knee high boots. The outfits are black, purple, white, or a combination of all three.
