History, Personality and Character Traits:
Kiay is a quiet individual, having a relatively sheltered life. He was brought up by his his single mother, a Risan by the name of Tella and has a younger sister. His father Michael Harding died during a border skirmish with the Tzenkathi when he was five years old.
Following the death of Michael, Tella, Kiay and Sharn, (his sister) moved to Earth where Tella became the manager of the Old Duck pub in Lincolnshire, England -a pub that was owned by Michael's parents who sadly died just a year before Michael was lost.

At the age of sixteen, Kiay developed feelings to one of the regular patrons of the pub and entered into a brief relationship with the man. Kiay and his mother disagreed with the relationship with the man some ten years his senior and after a blistering argument Kiay was packed off to Starfleet Academy after his mother orchestrated a recruitment event at her establishment.

By seventeen and after his mother had signed a waiver for her son to join the academy a year earlier than the normal intake age, Kiay arrived at Starfleet Academy where he flourished in the programme. He was hard working and studied hard however, he fell head over heals for one of his lecturers, Admiral William Moore. The pair had an elicit affair that lasted almost his entire first year until they were caught out by Kiay's bunk mate and the academy dene notified.

Kiay was cashiered out of the academy however, as a favour to the Admiral, Kiay was allowed to enter the Non Commissioned Officers Programme where he succeeded -his only hindrance was his longing to be with Moore.

In 2387, Kiay graduated from the NCO Programme and was watched by his mother and younger sister who made the trip to San Francisco to see him at his graduation ceremony. Tella was proud of her only son and the pair repaired their rift before he set off to his first assignment aboard McKinley Station to become the station's 'Chief Starship Liaison Officer.'

Kiay thrived in his new position however, he had gained a reputation of being 'overly friendly' with many of the starships junior officers that visited the station.

Aside from his ferocious sexual appetite, Kiay is a calm, still quiet officer. He is more than capable of holding his own with officers his senior as well as managing relations and expectations of the visiting ships.
A personal friend of the stations first officer and chief engineer of the station, Kiay is sweet, charming however, can often be found in the mess hall by himself reading. Kiay doesn't have a great deal of friendships however, he puts this down to choosing them well and is content with life.

After less than two years of serving at McKinley, Admiral Moore contacted Kiay and offered him the position aboard the Nomad. Moore had 'pulled a lot of strings' to get Kiay aboard a starship and believed that he owed the young officer a favour and apology for derailing his career.

Now, chief of the boat, Harding joins the crew of the Nomad at McKinley Station and is prepared for the challenges ahead. More excited for the mission than who he has been stationed alongside, Kiay believes that he will do well here and hopes to progress in his career using the Nomad as a jumping point to success...
