Tiamor concept by gutter-child Tiamor concept by gutter-child
Her arms a bit long but I drew this in like 40 minutes which is pretty impressive because I always seem to agonize forever on one drawing. I must have been really feelin’ her tonight, she wanted to strut. I was going to draw another character, Druk, a Ferengi trader, but it’s getting late and I am sleepy. (I wrote all this at 1 am last night lol)

So this is Tiamor Ekil, I’m still iffy about her surname, but Tiamor is definitely a winner. She was chubbier in the sketch. sigh

Cardassians are far too fond of cool/dark colors, Tiamor is not, she way too vibrant an individual to be drab. The USS Dorado, of which she is a side character, takes place after the Dominion War and the rebuilding of Cardassian government and society in the wake of their global kerfuffle with the Dominion. The canon I’m going with is they’re a little more relaxed, still very loyal and for the state but like… not as severe, more willing to play nice with others at the very least. lol I’m sure given help by more stable powers at the time they received a fair bit of culture influence, let’s hope that fashion was a part of that.

I may tweak her general style a bit more (and actually use references lol), this was just a quick little thing, but I know she likes to be bright at least.

She’s an environmental scientist, so she studies the bio-, hydro-, astro-, and geosphere of a planet and how they are all interconnected. She’s a civilian, but her main job is accompanying other scientists on deep space missions to study and catalogue alien worlds, which is often in partnership, or protected by, the military.

(Oh yeah did I ever mention I was going to make a Star Trek comic?)

Nice work! How long after DS9 does her story take place? Like is the Cardassian Union still in bad shape or returning to its former strength? Considering Federation membership?

The first leg of the comic idea she's featured in takes place 5 years after the end of the Dominion War, but she doesn't show up in the series until later than that (so almost 6 years after?). More than likely the Cardassian Union is still rebuilding, but that wouldn't stop them from doing science ventures in partnership with the Federation, I'd say- after all the Federation would likely give them support in rebuilding, at least in my mind. I really don't see the Cardassian Union after the Dominion War being quite as tyrannical given much of the government was destroyed and it's basically the lower classes that are now having to rise up and take control where they weren't really given the chance to before. I mean it's obviously not going to be squeaky clean or anything, but it would involve less military state behaviors.
I don't think they'd be ready for Federation membership just yet, not after only 5-6 years, but their cooperation would be geared towards that eventuality, yes. Tiamor's assignment on the USS Dorado is more or less to further that.

You know, that outfit almost seems influenced by the Indian salwar kameez. I haven't drawn it really, but I'd thought along similar lines myself, that some areas of Cardassia might well wear clothing like that. You did a great job with it. :)

Oh Yeah, I looked him up after you mentioned him and I see what you mean, really pretty designs! I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought there were some Cardassians out there that liked to explore unconventional fashion options. (✿◠‿◠) There's gotta be some change in society over time anyhow with major influences, that's just the nature of civilization.

Thank you!

Yus, I really love curvy people and there is a great lack of curves in Star Trek. /o/
