A turian from the troubled planet of Solregit. Raised in a primitive mountain encampment, Vindi was brought into the separatist conflict on Solregit at a very early age, holding roles as a scout and sniper. Following the customs of her birth-kin she has no birth certificate, no legal identity and no formal schooling.
Vindi is missing both mandibles; this was inflicted on her at age seven, when she was tortured during the interrogation that found her mother guilty of high treason; her mother was summarily executed.
Vindi was captured by Hierarchy forces at age thirteen and, with no proof of age, was declared an adult and jailed for "membership in a prohibited organization". She was sent to medium-security prison in South Solregit to remove her from the influence of fellow Sundowners. She was later removed from the general population when the guards presented case that her age and personality made her a candidate for alternative correction.
Following turian custom attempts were made to rehabilitate her, including teaching her basic literacy and mathematics, turian history, and introductory trades including cooking, cleaning and small engine repair. She was released from prison at age 20 when testing indicated she had met the minimum standards for turian education (equivalent of the average turian at age 15).
Vindi's personality was often childlike and she acted much younger than her age. The combination of use as child soldier and institutionalization during her teenage years resulted in severe dependency issues; she required constant reassurance and guidance. She tended to detach under stressful situations.
She speaks only Aplis. She has noted that it was hard for her teachers to teach her to read, because they were using materials written in a standard Hierarchy language, and had to use an omnitool to translate the words into Aplis and then teach her to read them. She did pick up a few words and phrases, but not enough that she can call herself bilingual.
