Personal History Place of Birth: Loneel Mountains, Betazed

Zania was the first child of Xuellan Laux and Ruana Ja'arda. Her father, Xuellan, was half Betazoid and half Ocampan. As an infant, it became apparent that Zania did not inherit most of the genetic physical traits associated with Ocampans, most notably the odd shape of the ears and shortened life span.
What was obvious, to everyone around her, was the fact that she was born with full empathic and telepathic abilities. Additionally, it was discovered that Zania possessed three mental Ocampan traits - the ability to learn at great speeds due to an eidetic memory, the ability to direct the flow of life energy on the molecular level to the point of creating heat and telekinesis, and the reception of premonitions.
Zania was immediately sent to the Imza Institute of Mental Development, where she received instruction on how to filter out the unwanted empathic and telepathic "noise."
She lapsed into a coma at seven years of age, although nobody was able to immediately discover a cause. Later, it was learned that Zania had been telepathically communicating with Aichi Lucian, her instructor at the Institute, when Betazoid serial killer Hent Tevren used his empathic powers to brutally murder her.
As a result of the contact, Zania learned something which no other Betazoid had known for several generations, with the exception of Tevren . . . how to kill with the mind.
After she recovered, the Betazoid Relzari decided for security reasons to place Zania in the Peace Keepers Academy. Normally, such an appointment was reserved only for the best and most powerful telepaths, or those who would be chosen to serve as the "police" for the planet.
When the Dominion invaded and occupied Betazed, the Academy was temporarially disbanded due to the rumors that several powerful empaths were missing. Many went into hiding, while others joined resistance factions.
Zania returned to her home, only to learn that her father had joined an extremist faction of the Enlightened Mind Movement. Her brother Tajol, and younger sister Savonne, both decided to join him, breaking with tradition by adopting the last name of their father to reflect their displeasure of residing on a planet that placed so much dependancy on the Federation.
It was soon revealed that her father and two siblings had been a part of the failed assassination attempt of Lwaxana Troi.
In order to prevent her Zania from telling the authorities, Tajol and Savonne took Zania to the Jalara Jungle, where she was brutally beaten and left to die. A resistance cell found Zania and got her to a medical facility, where her wounds were tended to under close observation.
When the Federation ended the occupation of Betazed, Zania decided to pursue a career in Starfleet where she could put her abilities to good use.

As the daughter of the 13th House of Betazed, the House of Peace and Protection, Zania is the holder of the Sword of Altha, also known as the Sword of Peace. It is said that the legendary Khrysaros had used the weapon in his quest to unify the planet.
According to the legend, if the sword were to ever be stolen from the owner, a great unrest would befall Betazed. If the blade were to ever be broken, a deadly war would erupt, causing a family member to fight against another family member.
Ruana, her mother, is the holder of the Great Fire Amulet, which is said to have the ability to summon the Great Fire, a god who reigned before the dawn of Betazed. Supposedly, he resides in the sun, ready to protect Betazed whenever his children call upon him.
