Personal History Harumi Kiyama once had a good life: A steady job, a happy marriage. However, all of that changed in 2374 after the battle of Betazed. Harumi wasn't sure what came over her when she enlisted to the Starfleet Marine Corps, but one thing was clear: She was going to make the Dominion pay for taking over Betazed.

After undergoing basic training, Harumi was assigned to the USS Columbia's marine detachment. The Columbia had recently participated in the successful first battle of Chin'toka when Private Kiyama was first assigned to her, just in time for the Columbia to be putting boots on the ground at AR-558.

Of the squadron of marines Harumi was assigned to, Harumi was the only one to return from AR-558. Following the battle, Harumi began having night terrors, and as she lost sleep, her performance began to slip, and soon, she was taken off active duty, at which time she saw a counselor aboard the Columbia over her nightmares. Harumi was soon diagnosed with survivor's guilt and post traumatic stress disorder, and was granted medical leave. During her medical leave, Harumi became withdrawn, spending her time in holosuites running simulations of the battle and experimenting in methods of trying to save her squadmates, an obsession which would stick with her to the present day.

When Harumi returned to active duty, AR-558 always seemed to be on her mind, even after the Dominion War came to an end later in 2375. It was suspected that this was due to her remaining assigned to the Columbia, where she had lost so many of her comrades. Harumi eventually confirmed it as such during a meeting with a counselor in early 2377. Acting with the new information they had received from Harumi, Starfleet and the Marine Corps reassigned her to the USS Challenger later in 2377, alongside a promotion to Private 1st Class.

In 2380, Harumi was selected for Officer Candidate School. During the 12 week program, her marriage became increasingly strained until finally Harumi and her husband decided to cut ties and file for divorce. While her divorce was in progress, Harumi graduated from Officer Candidate School at the rank of 2nd Lieutenant, and she was assigned to the USS Discovery as a team leader.
