Personality & Traits

General Overview The first impression of Colette is that she's totally crazy. She's overly bubblish, and overly zany, she can literally jump in your neck and talk about random trivia or tell awful jokes for hours. She is the living encyclopedia entry for the term 'oddball'. A true ADHD person, she's always buzzing around, bursting out of energy, getting on the nerves of people who'd prefer a bit more peace and quiet.
Below this surface, however, Colette is a highly intelligent and very much caring individual. Growing up in a dysfunctional family, she developed a high social sensitivity, and is keen on helping those is need, wherever she can. She is also quite bookwormish and has a quick mind. She's a talented and trained pianist, and has a natural sense of music.
Colette is also a highly emotional person, who very much lives her emotions intensely and throughoutly. Given her ADHD-prone nature, she finds it difficult to control or hold back her feelings. She always says out loud what's on her mind, even if it might sound rude occasionally. She can be happy and joyful in a moment, and then sad and depressed in the next. She's very stubborn and rarely listens to other people, even if she knows they're probably right. She has a low self-esteem and is often unsure of herself, feeling anxious when she has to make decisions.
Colette can make friends easily, but there's only a very few people she really feels close to her. She lives in her own little world, not really caring about the 'normal people', and given her 'weirdo' nature, she doesn't really feel she fits into society. This outsider status makes her feel a bit lonely sometimes, longing for someone who might be able to truly understand her.

Personal History Nicolette Blanchet was born in Montréal, Canada, Earth, on May 7, 2362. The first child of Jacques Blanchet and Nadine Girault, a pianist and a ballet dancer, she was born into an artistic family. The marriage wasn't exactly a happy one, as both parents tended to follow their own career rather than pursuing a future together, leading to constant quarrels and struggles.

Despite these obstacles, Colette was a bright and intelligent girl from early on, who excelled in her studies. A true bookworm, she loved to read, but she also found fascination in everything connected to obscure Earth popular culture. She often felt like an outsider in school and among other children because of her thinking being quite different from 'normal kids'. Eventually, her father - desperate for success, but never quite finding it - slid into depression and substance abuse, and left the family when Col was 9, leaving the two kids in the care of the their mom, who settled down in Montréal.

Colette also turned out to be quite a talented piano player from early on. She started learning to play at 6, and eventually matured into quite a great musician. First, she studied from private tutors, then, at 12, she got accepted to the prestigious Youth Conservatory of Montréal, where she graduated at 18. As a teen, Col still felt like an outsider, but learned to embrace her 'weirdo' nature, and gain enough confidence in herself to face life as it happens to her. She had a few friends, and even some brief romances. After graduating from high school, she briefly considered pursuing a professional career in music, however, seeing how her father ended up futile pursing his dreams, she made a surprising career choice instead: enrolling to Starfleet Academy.

Colette worked hard to get ahead at the Academy and prove that she is 'Starfleet material', ending up among the top of her pilot class, much to the surprise of her family and everyone else. She graduated with the rank of Ensign, majoring in Flight Control. She was first assigned to the USS Leonov where she served as Assistant Chief Flight Control Officer. On the Leonov, her department head commended Ensign Blanchet for her hard and persistent work, and she also earned the attention of a certain Captain Juliet St. Clair, who was being escorted on board at one occassion.

In April, 2385, shortly after the Attack on Mars, Captain St. Clair sent a recruitment request to Ensign Blanchet, offering her a promotion to Chief Flight Control Officer on board her newly commissioned special assginment vessel, the USS Tucker. Pretty anxious because of the sudden offer, but also excited for the promotion, she said yes. Relocating to her new ship, along with her ever-trusty Burmese cat, Schrödinger, Colette is looking forward to her new job with a combination of enthusiasm and nervousness.
