Recruited into the marines at an early age, Elizabeth Sanders has proven to be most capable in all areas of combat. Her discipline is incredible, and credit for this trait is often given to her parent's deeply religious background. Patience born of this discipline is key in her ability to perform for weeks on end in the field, waiting for a moment of opportunity to arise for her to do the most damage to the enemy. Although her career has been short, her achievements have distinguished her from the rabble. Although she never saw action in the Dominion war, she has performed admirably in missions supressing rogue factions of the old governments by relieving the leaders of these factions of their worldy concerns.
Born Bedik Mareil to a pair of Bajoran refugees, Sanders received her current name soon after reaching Earth at the age of two. Left in the care of a human family by her parents not long after arriving, Sanders would eventually learn that they had always planned to return to Bajor to assist with the rebellion. Unfortunately, no further record exists of her parents activities after their egress from Earth in a private shuttle. Hoping to follow in her family's footsteps, Sanders joined StarFleet's fighting marines as early as legally possible. However, her dreams of combat with the Cardassians were brought to a halt with the end of the war.
