Early lifeEdit

Karin was a Jewish citizen of the Terran empire and, as such, likely kept her faith secret (In Between Days: Bread).


Karin was never a true member of Starfleet. Rather, in payment for his services in an invasion, José Torres (mirror) was awarded three sexual playmates by Hoshi Sato (mirror), one of whom was Karin. The other two were Blair Claymore (mirror) and Pamela Hudson (mirror). Karin was considered to be the least attractive and least experienced of the three (In Between Days: Temper).

Personal LifeEdit

In 2166, she was brought in as a plaything for José Torres.

Alternate TimelinesEdit

First temporal displacement due to Pulse ShotEdit

In 2166, after an invasion from the Mirror universe to the prime universe, José Torres was able to lead an invasion force and not suffer any casualties. In reward for his efforts, he was given Karin, Pamela and Blair.

Second temporal displacement due to Pulse ShotEdit

In 2178, when another pulse shot was fired by the USS Defiant (NCC-1764), another portal was opened up between the universes. When Torres was killed by a collision with Malcolm Reed's ship, Karin was free to choose another mate. She chose Josh Rosen.
