Klingon Empire

"Briefly, this story covers K'Lira's childhood through her forties. As a young girl, she grew up with a debilitating genetic disorder and overly protective parents. When she was a teenager, without her parents' foreknowledge, she sought out a Klingon geneticist who cured her by unexpectedly turning her into an augment. By ancient law, augments are pariahs in Klingon society; they have no rights and no honor. Desperate to avoid being an outcast, she swore her parents to secrecy and bravely resolved to prove that even augments could be honorable Klingons if they chose to be.

"She left her House to found House Trestian and wore prosthetic disguises to conceal her augment features from other Klingons even as she recruited them to her cause. Her augment nature and strong personality lending her new prowess as a warrior, she spent the next two decades traveling the outer fringes of the Empire, honing her skills, helping others in need, fighting lopsided battles, and most often succeeding where others had failed. Other warriors flocked to her House, and at its height, House Trestian was over 1,500 warriors strong with a capable fleet and K'Lira was a respected colonel in the Klingon Defense Force, but she never revealed the secret that she'd done it all as an augment.

"K'Lira's life reached an apex when the doctor who turned her into an augment suddenly returned to threaten her and her House by revealing her secret publicly. He was the only person (besides her parents) who knew she was an augment by his hand, and he wanted his fair share of her success. The time for secrets was passed, and her comeuppance had finally arrived. She rushed to the Great Hall on Qo'noS to preclude the doctor's ruinous revelation with her own confession. The doctor then arrived, and she fought him to his death to prove she was an honorable Klingon after all. Chancellor Gowron forgave her life-long lie and amended the law against augments, saving House Trestian and allowing K'Lira and other augments to be honorable citizens as long as they remained loyal to the Empire.
