Personality & Traits

General Overview Emme is quiet but not necessarily shy.  She prefers to listen rather than talk, a quality she considers essential in a good friend.  She is slow to anger and generally a happy soul though she sometimes has trouble letting past mistakes go.  Emme considers herself a wallflower but will engage in conversation (and enjoy it) if asked or approached.  
Strengths & Weaknesses Emme has a very warm manner and generally knows how to put people at ease, especially when they are scared or in pain.
Ambitions She doesn’t consider herself ambitious and hates those who are only in a certain field for what they perceive as status.
Hobbies & Interests Gardening

Personal History Emmony Ila Safford was the second daughter born to Miriam, a botanist and Henry Safford, a farmer on Rousseau V.  They met at an agricultural convention on Earth. Their love of the land is shared deeply by Emme who always carries around at least several life plants no matter where she is stationed.

Emme grew up in the shadow of her much older sister Maralah who also joined Starfleet.  Her childhood was spent following adults around, with very few chances to play with other children.  As a result she grew up quickly and was considered by her father to have what he called an “Old Soul.”  She was always very responsible and could be left alone at a young age.  By the time Emme’s sister Maralah had hit her teenage years she suffered from a bit of social anxiety.  This was not passed down to her younger sibling.  Emme was always comfortable either in a room full of people or in a quiet room by herself.  

Emme always had a curiosity about the world.  She loved to sometimes sit and just observe people.  It was observing that led her to a Starfleet. Emmony realized she could have both things she loved, dirt between her fingers and flying off to far off worlds where she got to study new and interesting plants and get glimpses of the people who lived there.

Though friendly in a quiet way Emme finds it hard to make new friends if she's transferred too quickly from ship to ship. She's always on the lookout for interesting people though and can be seen anywhere in public following conversations from a distance. For this reason she's been labeled as nosy when the truth is she can become a bit lonely unless someone she's observing takes the first step.
