Personal History Rosa was born to a Starfleet enlisted security officer after a liaison with a Risan during shore leave. She was raised mostly by strict Catholic grandparents in Los Angeles until her mother's tour of service in Starfleet ended and her mother became a San Francisco police officer. Her mother was killed in the Breen attack on Earth and, with her grandparents dead, Rosa was sent to live with her father on Risa.

Rosa had known who her father was, and had met him a few times, but he had a family of his own and Rosa was an awkward fit. At the cusp of womanhood, she was thrown from a strict upbringing into the sexual hedonism of Risa. She turned into a bit of a rebellious teen and there was a lot of friction between her and her step family. Ultimately she took the first out that she saw, and something that connected her back to her mother, and enlisted in Starfleet as a security officer.

Being in Starfleet straightened Rosa out, and she found she had a knack for the investigative side of the job. She advanced rather quickly. After an investigation involving the Orion Syndicate left her seriously injured, Rosa was put on reserve duty to recover, going home to Risa. As part of her duties she was made Starfleet Security liaison to the local Risan capitol police, taking on regular investigations and responding to any that involved Starfleet personnel.

Since she now had a fairly permanent station, Rosa decided to pursue another personal goal. She had always been an excellent singer. Tapping into Risian student's enthusiasm for Earth culture, she opened a small jazz bar in the capital near the university and performed most nights.

Recently Rosa was recalled to more active duty, joining the crew of the USS Nightingale in investigating the disappearances of scientists from a medical conference -- including crew of the Nightingale.
