Born into a middleclass Irish family, Sorcha is the youngest of 4 children born to Tiani and Michael Kavanagh. Her father and mother worked hard to send their children to the best schools often working two jobs each just to make tuition. As all four children were born close together, it made it even more difficult. Sorcha was a quiet child, who followed her siblings in their antics when they were home from school. Adored by her older brothers, she often took the blame for any pranks and got out of trouble just as easily. She enjoyed school as well and all her friends found her easy to talk to.. well she listened while they talked.


At fifteen Sorcha began to think about the future. She began studying for the entrance exams for Starfleet. After graduation she packed her bags and moved to San Francisco and entered the Academy. She choose Counseling courses. Her first year passed easily and she worked hard. At the start of her second year she met another cadet, named Devlin O’Callaghan. He was a medical cadet year ahead of her. They dated for nearly two years before they got married. Against his parent’s wishes. Married at twenty, she graduated from the Academy at the top of her class, Devlin finishes his internship on Earth and goes to the USS Hydrana as a medical officer. Missing him she undertakes a counseling Internship on Earth. A year into the marriage after one of their short times together, Sorcha found out she was pregnant. Devlin tries to get a transfer back to Earth.

But while on his way to see her, his shuttle was shot down and he died instantly. She was 22 when she gave birth to twin girls, three months after their father, her husband died. Happy and sad that Devlin had never seen them she was not expecting the next thing that happened. Her Parents in Law took legal action and removed the twins, named Kayla and Kiera from her and asked the judge to grant her minimal visitation rights, giving the reason that Sorcha was an unfit parent and in-experienced in the way of children.

In 2381, she finished her three year internship and tried again to get custody of her children but was denied. She was transferred to the USS Mirage at the rank of Ensign. While there she worked hard and saw a few patients. But rumors reach her In Laws that she was fraternizing with senior officers, a rumor that is unfounded yet used to curtail her visitation to her children even more. Heartbroken she went and saw them for 30 minutes before being escorted from the property. In tears she headed for her next appointment, The USS Endeavour.

On the Endeavor, Sorcha finally got full custody of her kids along with a lot of stress and heartache, which inculded being given Chief counselor and then demoted when she spoke out about certain senior staff not going to counseling at a staff meeting. Despite her tenetive friendship with the captain and his kids, She left after one year and took an LOA where she studied on Betazed to upgrade her quals to become a pediatric counselor. Once the Resolution arrived at Betazed, she applied and was given the post of Pediatric Counselor on board.
