Species:Human, Kyatohu, Rilea
Tiirah is part of a widely know alien species throughout the galaxy, known as Kyatohu (Kya' for short). But she is also half human and a small fraction of Rilea (another alien race, both found in the galaxy Yyetz along with three other species).
She has many abilities due to her mixed species: She can shapeshift only 3 times a day; can speak through her mouth thanks to the human in her; and is immune to most viruses, cancers or illness. Except one, the common cold.
She knows nothing of the planet Earth, no language, no customs, no culture, no rules/laws, anything. But she will learn.
Story: An alien race known as the Kyatohu (dominant aliens of the galaxy Yyetz) have been stuying the human race for a while now, taking abductees and studing them further, and subjecting them to harmless tests that were no threat to the humans themselves.
One group of experiments consisted of combining Kyatohu DNA with Human DNA. But something went wrong. One of the humans had cancer, something the aliens had not seen, and something was was deadly to them. When they introduced the infected human DNA with the alien, the cancer was unleshed, infecting the other experiments and finally growing so strong it started infecting the Kyatohu themselves. The whole of the alien race was in danger, and they could not find a cure fast enough; they were all wiped out.
The experiment that had the infected human DNA was still alive. Remarkably, the cancer had been depleted as soon as it was introduced inside this human embryo, and it had developed a highly advanced immune system to it. It continued to grow, while another species of alien (Rilea)from the galaxy cleaned out anything left of the cancer. They found the experiments, all dead except one.
The Rilea were cautious of it, but amazed such a tiny thing could survive the cancer. There were many arguments to terminate it, but for some reason it was not, and so they kept the exerpiment alive, implanting it into a voluntary female alien, Sahra.
Sahra was a certain race of Rilea; her appearance was completly different to humans, but she birthed like a female human, which was why it was appropriate to place the embryo in her, as it was half human. While it was growing, they discovered at the early stages that it would be female, and that it had many features of a human. They tried to change the genes to make it more Rilea in appearence, or at least more Kyatohu, but even with their highly advanced technology they could not edit the alien's genes. It was eventually born, with the many combinations of the species it had been introduced with: it had the body shape and features of a human; the ears and four tails of the lizard like Kyatohu; and the color of the Rilea, slightly different. But she had a pattern adorning her body that was unlike any of her species. The Rilea came to the conclusion that it was the results of the many species inside her.
She was soon accepted into the Rilea society, and grew up with her mother Sahra, her three older brothers, and her younger brother and younger sister.
But one day when she was fifteen, a terrible virus was found to have started growing, infecting a quarter of the Rilea population already, and an urgent message was called to everyone that they should leave the galaxy immediately before they caught the virus.
Tiirah and her family were evacuated on a shuttle and sent to earth, but on entering the atmosphere they were in a collision with debris, and the escape pods were automatically ejecteed, sending Tiirah in a different dirction down to earth than her family. She ended up on an island ...
