When she was younger she wore braces for crooked teeth and a teddy bear called Peanut. She was average in every way.
Her mother took her to church every year at Christmas and looked at stars with her through a telescope, which opened her eyes to the stars for the first time.
Her father made sure she was a qualified diver before she started high school.
She went to Greater Haggleton High School where she was a member of the football and swimming teams, something she joined as there was no athletics team. SHe enjoyed playing football so much she briefly considered a career in the game, but when scouts came they initially passed over her. When completing her final exams in 314AE she set three Quetico Province records in athletics, she graduated one of the top 20 students on the whole planet in that subject. Her classmates voted her "Best Sportsperson" and "Most Likely to Succeed."
She had a crush on the school hunk, Avenant Dru'Pala'Siro with whom she had a date, and on that night her parents were murdered by a drugs cartel.
She found her parents had provided well for her, their life insurance paid of their debts, including the new yacht her father had commissioned, and she used her inheritence to buy out the cabin in the Talloth Mountain Range.
After joining the Quad in 314AE she added the traditional suffix "-Quad" to her name and was able to use her new powers to defeat the drugs cartel and bring her parents murderers to justice. She also improved all her exam results in the end of year tests to be one of the top students in her year. When Avenant Dru'Pala'Siro quit the football team rather than play alongside her she was made captain, which led to her being offered a trials with two football teams, including the Quetico City Panthers, her favourite football team.
After this she joined Star Command. Despite being sponsiored by the legendary Commodore Chen, Sergeant Kim of the Sky Marshalls and Quetico Province District Attorney Kristopher Bergkamp she was initially deemed "unsuitable" despite perfect credentials. She was accepted when she asked for and investigation into the reasons behind this.
Despite strong romantic feelings towards Bhutan she finds she does not love him, but is ready to move on with her lfie, finally grown up and ready to join Star Command Academy.
She set records in all three assault courses at Camp Berlinsberg. She became the first trainee in Baraben prime history to gain a perfect score, which she did in hand-to-hand combat. She set a record in the physical exam, being one of only six trainee's to be given the honourific "Warhammer" shirt. During the BEaST Delta-06 set a new all-time Alliance record.She graduated head of the class.
At Star Command Academy she was subjected to some Quad based bullying. She had intended to taker her major in Piloting, Minoring in Strategy and Tactics and Operations, but when she started her courses she found she did not enjoy piloting but was a natural at Stategy and Tactics, and was convinced by Admiral Guinevere Bourbon to switch them. Her starfighter Call Sign was "Wind" due to the way she ran like the wind. Her mentor was Ensign Mack.
She played in the Academy football squad and joined the Historical Society, the Astronomy Club and Swimming Team. She also took part in the Resolute Marathon in 314AE and finished fifth. In December 314AE she was named Captain of the football team.
In 314AE she started a relationship with Hamish McDougal. Whilst staying at her Talloth Mountain Range cabin she lost her virginity to him.
At Christmas 314AE she switched on the Golding Christmas lights as part of her Duchess duties.
In January 315AE she was attacked by a group of religious zealots who opposed her Quad faith. Videos of her defending herself made uplink and she was painted as the bad guy, despite an investigation proving otherwise. She was placed on report and given a discommendation for her role in the fight. She almost quit the service over the incident.
In Ustinoq 315AE she was involved in an incident on the Broken Moon of Baraben Prime. While leading her squad on a routine training exercise they were attacked by an ARES. She saved the lives of her squad by attacking the ARES single handedly, but the result almost cost her her life and she spent three weeks in a Suspension Tank. She was awarded the Legion of Honour for the second time for her actions.
She was made the Violet Knight, the ceremonial member of the Rainbow Order in 315AE.
When she returned to the Academy she saves the life of Tezch Kegeen Birith from the Green Mist, an action which begins the Scouring of Resolute. She then returned to the Royal Palace to find most of the Rainbow Order dead, and was forced to sacrifice the life of the Queen in order to save the King. She then found herself villified for her Quad faith, and thew her weight behind the treacherous Marjorie Gruber, who had collaberated with the Cameron Syndicate to bring down the roayl family, kill Ejjina's friends and make an example out of her for bringing down the drugs cartels, the result was that Gruber lost the senatorial election to the Tezch spectacuarly.
In September 324AE whilst teaching Strategy and Tactics at the Baraben Prime branch of Star Command Academy, the King threw a ball in her honour which she attended with Bhutan Jii, Harmony Ait-Alia and a date. Whilst teaching her students gained record scores.
In 325AE the King stepped in, it was realised she was too good an officer to leave teaching, and she was made Executive Officer of the Sovereign Star, the flagship of the Royal Baraben Home Guard. The Captain of the ship gave her rave reviews and said he had not worked with an officer of her calibre in years.
Over Christmas 327AE Bo Se Yung had proposed and they had put in a request to move back to Baraben Prime.
In Ques 328AE she launched an illegal rescue mission into the Nostluhk Dominion to rescue the crew and passengers of the ScSS Jules Verne from Podrink 452 System in what became known as the Podrink 452 Incident.
In 325AE she was assigned to the ScSS Houyi as Night Watch Commanding Officer as it embarked on Operation Burning Hammer. She personally tracked down the rouge ScSS Avensis and led the starfighter squadrens in the Battle of Enphico. As a result of her actions she was awarded the Crown of the Twin Worlds and gained a promotion to Captain, along with command of the ScSS Banabhatta.
While on Christmas leave on Orsimo she met Jovan Johnson. She was so impressed with him that she requested him to come aboard the Banabhatta. Because of his chequered past his commanding officer agreed. She had been put onto the engineering articles of Sorvel, Son of Yuvel, and had been impressed, requesting him for the Banabhatta but her request was denied.
Upon arriving on the Banabhatta she found her ship had been mutilated by the previous commanding officer, Captain Reh'Jii'Kolos who had sold much of the ships systems, spare parts, even a shuttle, on the black market to line his pockets. The crew was hitting their targets, barely, but was demoralised and many had given up. The previous Captain had recently been arrested and jailed for his actions.
Over the next few months the ship was involved in the Athoras Encounter and they used the rewards from this repair and resupply the Banabhatta, put her in for a service, and gain 12 starfighter bays. All the time she and Bo Se Yung were growing closer.
For her birthday in 326AE she had a birthday party in a seaside restaurant in Aegri. Here Bo Se Yung got her a bronze casting of the Banabhatta so she would never forget her first command, an expensive and thoughtful present.
In Bellan she and Bo Se Yung finally succumbed to their simmering sexual tension and slept together, starting a relationship. By Christmas they were talking about moving to Baraben Prime when he proposed, she accepted.
In Ques 328AE, three weeks after the ScSS Jules Verne had been kidnapped by the Nostluhk Dominion, and having seen the hostages, including her mentor Guinevere Bourbon, struggling for life as they were tortured to death, she ordered pregnant Dominique Swan and civilains off the ship and took the Banabhatta across the boarder on an illegal rescue mission, sending a message to Commodore Taue Hashimoto accepting full responisility for the ships actions.
On the way to the Podrink 452 System, hiding inside the Golden Blossom Nebula on route, she ordered them to go inside the wreck of a Nostluhk Leviathan codenamed 'Pluto' which they were able to gain security codes out of.
Once in the Podrink 452 System and they identified the location of the hostages on the moon of Cancri she led a rescue team into the Nostluhk facility. They saved dozens of hostages, but only three of her team made it back alive, Jovan Johnson and Andre Ivanovich, whom she personally carried out. She suffered two broken ribs, a cracked bone in her forearm and internal bleeding before the remains of her team were rescued.
On the way home she used innovative strategies and tactics to beat Trict and Orabavair ships in multiple engagements, but even so the Banabhatta was gradually broken down and her crew killed off. She lost friends such as Alexander McDougal, Tiffany Knowles, Kiew Hhung So and her fiance Bo Se Yung on the way home. When things looks bleakest they were finally rescued by Commodore Taue Hashimoto and Task Force Green Alpha One.
Due to "public interest" her court martial was opened to the public. The judicial committee was made up of people who disliked or had problems with her in the past. With the help of Rahn the Wanderer she was able to beat the charges against her enough to warrant only a brief suspension.
During this time was escaped to Neva'Eh and mourned alone. It was only the arrival of her friend Enasis Secronaa-Quad that got her to accept that she had survived and gave her the motivation to move forward with her life.
She found that as part of the publicity for Operation Open Water the was to be honoured with the President's Medal and the given command of the ScSS Seraphic as part of the historic mission. In reality it was a way fro Star Command to remove her from the Alliance for 3-years whilst making it look like they had placed one of their top young captains at the Oferan's disposal.
On the same day that she takes command of the Seraphic she is shot by Wojtek ‘Worm’ Zawakzki. She survives but takes a few weeks to recover. She starts having meals with Marrion Gibsy and Xhoa Chi Zwhang, fellow Baraben Prime natives.
They started archeological digs at a Si'La ruin on the planet Eme with Ejjina thrilled to be doing something similar to her mother. They then got a distress call from the IOEV Holy Throne and when they investigated she was informed by Pyntaxian Ambassador Tonga Braakl that they are Naz'Jil's.
She led a second team onto the Holy Throne and made was attacked by the Naz'Jil's, but was able to hold them off using her Quad abilities long enough for her crew to escape with the body of Ibudab. When the Naz'Jil's gave chase she pushed the Seraphic to new speed records, and leaked engine plasma out of the engines and ignited it in a bid to stop the Naz'Jil's. Her bold tactic failed, but held off the Naz'Jil's for long enough for the Oferan reinforcements to arrive.
For her actions in rescuing Ibudab she was awarded the Crown of the Twin Worlds and was able to confer that award on others.
In Ques 329AE she attended a science conference with Axa Mai'Afta'Mix at Station Banahou. Here he arranged for the University of Li Koom and the Museum of the Interstellar Dragon to partner the Seraphic in investigating the Eme Si'La ruins. On the way back Mai'Afta'Mix's poor piloting skills got them lost and they were attacked by Cameron Syndicate and imprisoned on the secret Nephalim base.
She met Tiberius Jones who became infatuated with her. She used this to her advantage, but fell in love with the expensive dress he brought her. Using her quad powers she took out several of the guards at the base and rescued Axa Mai'Afta'Mixand escaped in the ScSh Al-Khansa.
Bringing back the ScSS Seraphic they captured the base and Tiberius Jones but uncovered a secret laboratory containing ten thousand clones, part of Project Olvikan. She used Tiberius Jones infatuation with her to try and learn more. He promises to tell her more, as long as she keeps in contact with him.
In Ques 329AE she was able to make first contact with the Tincarma and Sarafid Dowd'i Kingdom when the ScSS Seraphic interrupted a fight between the two sides. She made formal first contact with Pan Roth and then followed his ship back to Sor Lois to meet Xee Xar.
Upon discovering the true nature of why the Sarafid Dowd'i-Tincarma War had started she ordered the ScSS Seraphic to help evacuate Sor Lois and deliver the survivors to Whereev Mellon. Here she met Hand Rahan IV.
She ordered the ship to take part in The Battle of Whereev Mellon, using Alliance technology to enable to the Sarafid Dowd'i to talk to the Tincarma for the first time and ask for peace. With the help of Commander Xandos P Orthopolis and Ambassador Tonga Braakl they were able to sit down with both races and soon The Treaty of Sor Lois was signed, ending one hundred years of war.
In Rabcyella 329AE the ScSS Seraphic was on border patrol to defend the Sarafid Dowd'i Kingdom whose military mad been wiped out in The Battle of Whereev Mellon. She is getting closer to Deyman Volosovich.
After The Encounter in The Mists the ScSS Seraphic starts to malfunction. Ejjina feels useless as her crew work to save them and she can do nothing as the microbial creatures in the Midnight Nebula are eating her ship.
After Sorvel, Son of Yuvel has found a way of combating the microbial life forms and Jovan Johnson was able to fly them through a proto-star system to rid them of the infestation they were able to escape the Midnight Nebula and, in order to make repairs she contacts Commander Alejandro Gonzalez Diaz to find out where the ScSS Suleiman The Magnificent was recently repaired. He sends her to Taq's Caravanserai.
At Taq's Caravanserai she bumps into Enasis Secronaa-Quad. The friends enjoy each others company and have their fortunes told by Lady Belless. She tells them they are mortal enemies and will destroy each other is they continue their relationship. The pair do not believe it, but have to bid goodbye to each other.
After hearing such news Ejjina wishes to do something crazy, so goes to Deyman Volosovich's quarters, takes of her clothes and kisses him.
As the ScSS Seraphic undergoes repairs at Taq's Caravanserai she sees several members of the Seraphic family whilst running. Upon returning to the ship she takes a call from Commodore Suhkmani Kaur who has heard of her relationship with Deyman Volosovich and disapproves. She orders Ejjina to send Xandos P Orthopolis to go to Ku to aid with diplomatic relation with the Pirec. She also lets her known that Ejjina has been made commanding officer of the Sarafid Dowd’i Kingdom Squadron.
Ejjina worries about her reputation due to her relationship with a subordinate officer. Ovath Reh'Obo'Amasa and Selena Gomez advise her to relax about the situation, despite her not seeing a future with Volosovich.
After repairs are complete she orders them to the Sarafid Dowd'i Kingdom but when they gain a message about the deteriorating political situation, Cameron Syndicate influence and Tincarma and Sarafid Dowd'i ships all heading for Ku she orders the ScSS Seraphic to Ku.
She ultimately decides to continue with her relationship with Deyman Volosovich.
She is still playing chess with Tiberius Jones.
Here she sees that Duquam is in Four Castle and goes to intercept, meeting Velelsis Mai'Kala'Vista en route. They rescue those in Four Castle and she kills Obusmyar, Son of Obusam.She then went in search of Jovan Johnson with Deyman Volosovich and Tippu Ahluwalia.
When she goes to talk to Deyman Volosovich he splits up with her and requests an immediate transfer.
In Syropha 329AE she meets her new officers coming aboard before naming Starfighter Wing One.
She attends the security briefing for the Federated Territories Agreement signing. Later that night she goes through her paperwork, authorizing 24 Cadets from the Star Command Academy on Ullsimoof to come aboard for their Cadet Cruise. She also authorized Sorvel, Son of Yuvel and Mohammed Al-Habsi to trial Fellowship 1.2 after the success of Fellowship 1.1. She was then contacted by Forsas Reh’Xisi’Omex who told her of Tiberius Jones's death.
In the middle of the night she is awoken to the news that the Sarafid Shah Hand Rahan IV is dead. She throws herself into action and finds that Jovan Johnson and Xandos P Orthopolis have disappeared on the Polonkip colony, not something that can be a coincidence, she does not believe that the Sarafid Shah can have died on the eve of the signing of the Federated Territories Agreement either.
She speaks with Li Po Yu and Kristina Trebaite, argues with Woodrow Chu and gains permission to go down to the surface with Tonga Braakl. After meeting Hector Javier Xabi-Garcia they head off to the Sarafid Shah Citadel to try and find out what is going on. Once in the Citadel they find Can Jii attempting to usurp the throne. He is aided by the Cameron Syndicate and Ejjina relaises they have to leave as they are in danger. Velelsis Mai'Kala'Vista stops Tonga Braakl endorsing Can Jii and is forced to stay behind as part of his harem.
While trying to get Commodore Suhkmani Kaur and Ambassador Hector Javier Xabi-Garcia to authoise a recuse mission for Velelsis Mai'Kala'Vista Sai Mai Chang brings to her attention a secret message Xandos P Orthopolis has sent the ScSS Seraphic stating that Project Olvikan's invasion is imminent. She contacts Li Po Yu who needs more evidence, but believes she is right. Ambassador Plobella, Daughter of Ploben gives Ejjina command of her forces as the ScSS Ingagota detects a fleet of ships coming in from the Devil's Smile Nebula.
When her crew figure out that Xee xar has fled to Sor Lois she gets permission from Commodore Suhkmani Kaur to follow. She goes down to Tualf Seni and talks to Xee Xar, who requests formal aid from Star Command.
She commands the ScSS Seraphic in the Battle of Unda Und, taking the Seraphic, the ScSS Avramaya and the ScSS Ingagota to the far side of Unda Und to engage fifteen Dragonfire Class Cameron Syndicate ships. Using the planet as a place to hide she outflanks the ships and splits them into two groups, isolating them with starfighters and Hammerwing's until thy are able to destroy them.

Behind the ScenesEdit
Ejjina Mexonber-Quad was not conceived of in a flash, but come to slowly, growing bit by bit. The idea of a female Captain, different to how most starship Captain's are portrayed, was appealing. The idea "how to improve on Captain Kirk" was a mantra, until the idea to add aspects of the Jedi and wizards from Harry Potter and Bene Gesserit from Dune was hit upon. That led to the formation of the Quad Order, which was made controversial. Then came the idea of the Porink 452 Incident being her previous mission and her history of failing in relationships.
In writing Rhapsody the idea was to create a heroine opposite to Bella from Twilight. Someone strong and independent enough to be seen as heroic, yet intelligent, sexy and feminine, whilst being tough and "bad ass." Someone who was not defined by the need for a boyfriend and how others saw her, but by what she chose to be and how they saw herself.
The character is named after the Mongolian word for "oasis." Author Craig W. Atkinson's daughter shares the same name.
