Obaia Tilimsani was born and raised on Scorpia. Her clan, the Tilimsan, is small, traditional and fierce. They keep to themselves and only a few members of the clan are fluent in Standard. She didn't have much in the way of formal education, and she first took part in clan raids at age eleven, though mostly as a water-bearer and loot-carrier. She apprenticed under the clan doctor, but over the years of her apprenticeship, there were just too many questions she had that the hedge-healer couldn't answer. She gained the blessing of the clan leaders to join the Scorpian military to become a medic, with the intention of going back home and bringing her skills (and pay!) with her after her enlistment was up. Boot camp can be rough when you only know how to say "please", "thank you", "don't frak with me" and "where is the bathroom", but she picked up a working knowledge of the language quickly, tasking herself with learning at least one new word each day, a habit she maintains to this day. After the Cylon attack, she was selected to join the Colonial Forces for her tenacity, adaptiveness, and experience with jungle combat.
Obaia stands at 5'5, with a figure that would be considered slim and feminine if she didn't carry herself in such a way that makes it clear she could probably tear out your pancreas if you pissed her off. She has dark hair that, when left to its own devices, is a beautiful mane of tight, kinky curls, though she tames it in uniform, and has been known to cut it all off in fits of pique.
