Kira Nerys was a female Bajoran in the 24th century. Kira lived on Bajor in the Cardassian occupation and was a member of the Bajoran Resistance. When the Cardassians withdrew she joined the Bajoran Militia and when Bajor joined the Federation in the year 2376 she transferred to Starfleet at the rank of Captain, in command of Federation Starbase Deep Space 9 and the starship USS Defiant. Kira later left Starfleet and became a member of the Bajoran religion. In 2378 Kira married Human Starfleet Captain Typhuss James Halliwell on Deep Space 9. Kira has three children, Kira Hoshi Sato born in 2379 and Shakaar Edon Kira born in 2383, Kira Meru II born in 2389.
((This was pieced together from wiki information, and will be altered as I re-watch the series and read the Terok Nor trilogy)).
Nerys was born of Bajor to Kira Meru and Kira Taban in November of 2343. She was born in the Dakhur Province of Bajor, and spent much of her life in the Singha Refugee Camp. When she was 3, her mother was taken to Terok Nor to serve as a comfort woman. But young Nerys was told by her father that her mother had died. She is yet to know that any fate but malnutrition befell her mother. Her father -- who believed that his wife was making a great sacrifice for their family -- often told Nerys of how her mother was the bravest woman he had ever known).
Kira and her brothers were often cared for by Tir Ramara -- a woman whom Taban took in after her family was killed by the Cardassians. Due to the fact that Meru was a Comfort Woman, the Kira family received extra rations. When Ramara found out about them (but not why they were being received) she stole them and gave them to the Resistance. When Taban caught her doing so, she accused him of being a traitor, and ran away. After that, the Kira family was forced to give up their additional rations to avoid being hounded as collaborators, and Nerys continues to hold this against Ramara.
Nerys often got into trouble as a child, as she loved to annoy the adults. A close family friend, a Prylar by the name of Istani Reyla, taught Nerys about the Prophets. This would foster a life-long faith in the Prophets and their love for the Bajoran people. She was 12 when Lorit Akrem recruited her into the Shakaar Resistance Cell. She spent most of her time with the cell running errands and cleaning weapons.
A year later, the Cell was running low on people for an ambush on a Cardassian skimmer, and needed more infantry. Nerys was quick to volunteer, seeing a chance to prove herself. Although everyone thought she was far too young, Lupaza stood up for her and told her she had the heart of a sinoraptor, and that they had no choice but to accept her offer for help. When Furel made a joke about Nerys, Lupaza hit him for it. Eventually, she was approved by Shakaar to replace the missing member and join the attack. She would never forget the experience as they waited hours on that mountain ridge. When the hatch opened and the first Cardassian stepped out, she opened fire and kept shooting until the power cell was empty. Later, Lupaza crafted a Bajoran earring out of some of the metal of the destroyed skimmer. It is a piece of jewelry she wears to this day. And at that young age she would continue to fight for the Shakaar.
Just before her fourteenth birthday in 2357, the Shakaar cell liberated the Gallitep labor camp before the mine laborers could be slaughtered by the ruthless Gul Darhe'el. Her memory would be haunted by what she encountered there, the terrible treatment the survivors had had to go through. Not long afterwards, she learned how to fly outdated Raider craft. She suffered along with the rest of her cell in the winter of 2360-61, unarmed and hungry. They hid in the Dakhur Hills, evading Cardassians for 10 years.
(To be continued)
Kira resigned as commander of Deep Space 9 in 2378 so she could join the Bajoran Religious Order following her experiences with Iliana Ghemor and the Ascendants. During her studies, Kira quickly rose through the ranks and reached the level of Vedek in only three years, which was previously considered to be impossible. In 2381, Kira met with Benjamin Sisko following his visiting a monastery on Bajor to consult the Orb of Prophecy and Change. Kira spoke with him about his decision to rejoin Starfleet following his retirement, Elias Vaughn, and her appointment to the rank of Vedek. Kira commented that many felt she had achieved so much so quickly because of her close association with the Emissary of the Prophets, which upset Sisko. Benjamin revealed to her that he felt that the Prophets had abandoned him because he left the Celestial Temple. Kira assured him that the Prophets still walked with him and that he had to have faith, but he rebuffed her and said that he had to walk alone. He informed her of his decision to leave Kasidy Yates and she told him that she would be there for him whenever he needed to talk; however, Sisko had resolved himself to cut his attachment to others including Vedek Kira. On an impulse, Kira later sought out Sisko and was an instrumental figure in his struggle with his destiny, leading him to allow Kasidy and Rebecca back into his life.
Acting under influence from the Prophets, Kira saved herself and Kasidy from the destruction of Deep Space 9. She later stole the runabout USS Rubicon from the station in order to intervene in a Typhon Pact attempt to infiltrate the Wormhole. Kira disappeared in the wormhole in a heroic attack on the Romulan warbird Vetruvis.
Kira, or a Prophet assuming her likeness, later spoke to Ben and Kasidy, informing them that the former had been released from his duties as the Emissary and wishing them a good life together.
Within the wormhole, Kira first experienced a vision of Sisko's first entry into the wormhole - when the then-commander struggled to communicate with the Prophets. After this she experiences a new vision, similar to her Gateways experience, of herself on ancient Bajor. She becomes the Bajora freedom fighter, Keev Anora. During that experience, Keev/Kira enters into a relationship with Altek Dans. Eventually she realises her vision, communicates with Sisko and Kassidy as above, and wakes up on a darkened ship, where she is confronted by Taran'atar.
Typhuss James HalliwellEdit
In 2378 Kira first met Typhuss James Halliwell on Deep Space 9. Typhuss and Kira soon showed an attraction to each other. Typhuss got authorization from Kathryn Janeway and The Doctor to engage in a romantic relationship with Kira Nerys. Kira took Typhuss back to her quarters and had sex with him. Typhuss and Kira dated for a week and then later they became engaged to be married. On January 7th, 2378 Kira and Typhuss got married aboard Deep Space 9. Kira's first child Kira Hoshi Sato was born in 2379, Kira Hoshi Sato was delivered in a traditional Bajoran birthing ceremony. Kira's second child Shakaar Edon Kira was born in 2383, Shakaar was delivered in a traditional Bajoran birthing ceremony. In 2387 Typhuss told Kira that he was in love with Helen Magnus at first Kira was angry with him, Kira also thought that Typhuss had an affair with Helen but Typhuss told Kira that he didn't have an affair with Helen, deciding to work out their problems rather than getting a divorce. Kira and Typhuss were able to work out their problems and stay married to each other. Typhuss filed for divorce from Kira. Typhuss told Kira he still loved her. Also, during this time, Typhuss admitted his feelings to Helen and the two began a relationship. In January 2388 Kira did not sign the divorce papers, so the divorce was never finalised. Kira hoped one day that Typhuss would reconcile with her. Typhuss broke up with Helen and reconciled with Kira. Later that year Kira filed for divorce from Typhuss, Kira was lonely and felt that Typhuss wasn't there for her. Typhuss got married to Samantha Carter again. The next day Sam got a fast divorce from Typhuss and Kira came over to talk, Kira stopped the divorce and reconciled with Typhuss.
