Lyta was born in Ireland,
but grew up in in a small town outside of Toronto, Canada, on Earth.
Although she's half Trill, she's never actually been to her mother's
homeworld. When she was 9, she was involved in a horseback riding
accident which crushed her right knee and damaged it irreparably. Now
she wears a brace-coil in order to do even simple things like walking
(She's constantly replacing it because she puts it through a lot more
stress than it was designed to take.) She plays ice hockey and used to
play in/coach with one of the Toronto region's twelve organized leagues.
Her long time best friend, Julian Clair was in that league with her. He
and Lyta became best friends through their love of sports. Today
they still remain like family. She also taught herself to play the
guitar quite well. Lyta is no stranger to tragedy. When she was eight,
her parents were murdered by Cardassians. Also, Lyta, Julian and another
close friend of thier's, Michael Selick, spent some time on Bajor. After
six months, the Cardassians invaded Bajor and the three of them found
themselves unable to leave. Another six months saw the Cardassians
capture her and the other two. They were taken to a laboratory
where the Cardassians expiriments on bajoran prisoners. Michael was
killed as a result of these tests. Soon after that Lyta's aunt had her
and Julian pulled back from Bajor. Before the month was over they were
both enlisted in Starfleet to "Keep them out of trouble."
Lyta has an extremely
volatile temper and violent personality. This is paired with a
sharp wit and She would use any excuse to attack someone on the personal
level. This wit also gives her a very twisted sense of humor. Although
she can be friendly at times, she generally attacks anyone she doesn't
want within ten feet of her. She loves contact and fighting sports and
combat games. Because she grew up mostly around her male friends and
cousins, she's very much an athlete and considers herself as much
a guy as Julian or Michael. She bears more than a little
resentment towards the Cardassians for her parents' and Michael's
deaths. Mostly her human side is what she puts forward, not at all
letting on that she is in fact part Trill at all. Ghallagher is very
creative and will take any chance she gets to improvise.
Engineering major, one semester xenoboilogy, combat training, advanced
warp geometry. Fluent in Earth english and greek, Bajoran, Trill.
Speaks broken Klingon and Cardassian.
