|Personal History||Emmanuelle Juliette Larose was born outside of the Earth city of Montreal in 2360. Though her family would have preferred she stay on Earth (and ideally in the Quebec area; her parents strongly valued the preservation of French Canadian culture), Emmanuelle wanted to be out in the Galaxy. She convinced her parents to permit her to enlist in the Starfleet security department a year early at age 17, using the argument that positive representation of their culture outside of Earth could only be beneficial. Knowing they could not control their little girl, who was always rambunctious and energetic despite her small stature, they consented.
Emmanuelle trained in the enlisted track and spent two years providing security services throughout local space. She spent more than a year as a brig officer on the Proxima Colony, followed by a sixteen-month stint as a VIP Bodyguard on Mars. During that second assignment, she was commended for preventing an assassination attempt against the Arcadian representative to the Federation Council, who was visiting Mars to speak at a university. She spotted a potential threat against her, but pointed him out quietly to her superiors rather than take him out directly. This ended up being the right decision, as the man was holding vials of a poisonous substance, and a direct confrontation may have resulted in many fatalities.
Her superiors commended her judgment and recommended she enroll in Starfleet Academy, which she did. During her time as a Cadet in the Security and Tactical Department, Emmanuelle was often underestimated because of her small stature, but she proved herself multiple times over as a capable and sometimes ferocious fighter. Her positive attitude and friendly smile were also often useful at defusing complicated situations.
Upon graduation in 2384, Emmanuelle was sent to the Inconnu Expanse to board the USS Pandora was one of her security officers. In 2387, security chief Cailus Griffin assigned her as security attaché to the Diplomatic Department, to serve as personal security attaché to the Chief Diplomatic Officer, Lieutenant John Sandoval.
Ambitious as ever, Emmanuelle learned what she could about diplomacy and politics from the diplomatic department, with a view of one day climbing the ranks. She became fascinated by galactic affairs and saw the potential in combining her skills in combat and diplomacy into becoming an excellent strategic operations advisor. In 2390, she was accepted in a two-year strategic operations training program at the academy annex on Zakdorn. Using the lessons learned on Pandora along with the material learned by Starfleet’s master strategists, Emmanuelle became an expert in galactic strategic affairs.
In 2392, she graduated and accepted the position of Assistant Chief Strategic Operations Officer on the USS Capella, a starship which explored and provided security on the far side of Klingon and Romulan space. Two years later, she was offered a chief position on Deep Space Three.
