Her penchant for risk-taking has made her a habitual gambler and a frequent patron of seedy establishments where such activities can be found.|

|Ambitions||Make Fleet Admiral and run Starfleet.
Get eternally lit, turnt, cross-faded, or any combination thereof.
|Hobbies & Interests||Sek loves to gamble and take risks. She also loves a good romance holonovel. When she's not on the helm, she's often in the flight simulator living out her lost calling as a starfighter.
|Personal History||Born in 2366 to wealthy Tellarite shipping magnates, the warp lanes of the Federation are as familiar to Sek as her own veins. She was raised in modest luxury with the finest hands-on education and apprenticeship. For the first 7 years of her life, she was expected to one day inherit Peth Freight Union along with her older brother Greavin.
At the height of the Federation-Klingon War, spring of 2373, Sek's parents were attacked and ultimately killed when their freighter was attacked by a Klingon raiding party. The loss of her parents irrevocably changed Sek's life forever.
Executors of the Peth estate groomed Sek's brother Greavin to take up the mantle of the family business. However, Sek ultimately wound up pursuing a different fate. Her adolescent angst was fueled by the death of her parents, rendering her an uncontrollable wildchild. The shareholders and partners of PFU were terrified by the prospect of Sekhem cashing in her holdings or, even worse, acting on them. Her natural disdain for Klingons, and other raider types like Orions and Ferengi, was stoked by Greavin in order to form a compromise: join Starfleet in order to protect Ma and Da's legacy. She was soon won over and proudly entered Starfleet to defend mercantilism against piratical hegemony.
The chip on her shoulder spurred her on to noteworthy grades. Not only was she flight-rated for most vessels in modern production runs, but her upbringing in the heart of the shipping industry showcased in her innate navigational and administrative skills.
Graduation with honors led to her being appointed Chief Flight Control Officer on the Luna class USS Ganymede for over a year. Due to inciting a diplomatic incident on the edges of Klingon space which required an entire ambassadorial entourage to smooth over, Sek was transferred to the Long Jump Project. Her brother Greavin's expert negotiations labeled it a compromise to Sekhem and a punishment in the eyes of Starfleet, but for the shareholders of Peth Freight Union, it is an inroad to the Messier 4 boomtown.
