Biographical Info

Family & History

Parents of a heart surgeon (father, Dasharath Abeni) and a psychiatrist (mother, Harshini Ramya) Nailah found herself encouraged, coaxed and prodded to follow in their footsteps. She did well, not a spectacular student, but eventually, she found her niche in surgery. Angioplasty, transplants, limb replacements; in these she shone.

Her parents were killed in an automobile accident on their way home from a dinner honoring their achievements, Nailah in the car following them when they were hit by an on coming driver, their car falling to the ground on the streets of Caprica City, neither surviving the crash landing.

She mourned for a while and then realized her parents would demand she go on and so, she went on at a feverish pace until her good friend, Mythos who worked at the Colonial Military Hospital in Caprica City offered her a job. Of course, it came with a codicil of joining the military, but he figured it will pull her out of her frenetic lifestyle she had consumed herself with.

And she discovered muscles, a well of resistance and was able to draw from deeper fountains of determination than she ever thought possible. She learned how to use a handgun, how to run track, even ran a marathon for the Caprica Children's Foundation in addition to learning the dances of her mother's family, the Kathakali, a story-play and an elaborate dance depicting the victory of truth over falsehood as well as the Mohiniattam, the dance of the enchantress in which she is garbed in the fluid silk and henna of her ancestors.

She worked hard and came out with a rank of Lieutenant and once working full time at the Caprica City Colonial Military Health and Science University, she made her way without even being aware of it, to Captain. Her friend Mythos Parmeneer died of cancer along the way, leaving her without friend or rudder in the boat he'd set her sail in. Six months ago, she was called to duty aboard the Battlestar Kharon, whom her CMO assured her needed her surgical skills. She looked upon this as another adventure, every closing door leaving an open window. And now, she stares out at the stars and wonders what is in her future.
