Qingyi – Thoughts on creation
See below for changes to the format. Qingyi is intended as a backup character to Nadeshiko, and both are very much me playing against type.
Nadeshiko is a Spock/Seven type of character. Dry, stoic, emotionally muted.
Qingyi, though, is very much the archetype of genki girl. Energetic, and upbeat. Like Nadeshiko, she’s continuing the general trend of my characters being from not Earth in Star Trek.
Unlike Nadeshiko, she’s human and therefore: needs some time being created. I wanted someone mature enough to be a doctor in their field, since she’s also a civilian science analyst, but not so old she’s lost her youthfulness. The downside is coming up with a last name, because in a way, I wanted her to have a meaningful last name but not one that would be conventional. The first one was `Tiānbiānjìng` (天變靜) which.. roughly means (The sky has become quiet). Also, it would have been a pain to type..
Roughly. Let me be honest, I wasn’t going to pick it, but it gives a point of departure. I ended up going with Taoshinda. Largely, it’s because of an issue with her background.
Of course, Xiaomei has problems of her own, in terms of it being a iffy first name. So it didn’t survive the renaming. (Xiaomei is, as closely as I can tell, also “little sister” and used in other interesting ways.) Anyway, after a discussion, her last name retains a meaning but isn’t a meaning entirely.
Of course, Cascadia is.. a bit of a unique place because of exploring some things, but hopefully not too strange..

Qíngyí grew up in the public system of Taoshi, a city on Cascadia. By custom, this largely meant living in the orphange and attending school.
Qíngyí attended Cascadian University of the Galaxy as a graduate.
After gaining her doctorate, she went to work for Starfleet Science.
The ticket to the future is always open.
