Seelix began a promising career with Starfleet as an engineer before going AWOL from the Academy in San Francisco during her final year, no explanation has been determined to this date. Psychological profiles from her early cadet years indicate a lasting and deep seeded issue with authority figures, often manifesting through acting out and 'pranking' her instructors or fellow cadets whenever she disagreed with them. Despite her tenacity, senior academy staff felt she had qualities worth nurturing along with what was described as a 'naturally creative flair', and so every attempt was made to help the young cadet find her place. Whilst it commonly believed that these issues [for which the underlying reasons were never determined] are at the root cause of her disappearance, this is purely speculative.
Some years later, Seelix was encountered by members of a DPS vessel when attempting to rescue one of their own from unjust incarceration. Seelix was found imprisoned alongside their colleague - apparently for running a con scheme to sell lucrative oil to a species which was significantly watered down. She bartered for her freedom by aiding the DPS crew in their escape before signing on with them for a time, as she revealed that she had 'lost' her ship.
Seelix was not seen until almost a year later again, working independently once more though it is unknown if she left the DPS crew or was removed. This time encountering an Orion information broker by the name of Hangs Mengs when she attempted to spy on his conversations at a remote outpost. Mengs took an interest in the feisty character and recruited her as an informant to the Scryer information network for whom he worked. Shortly after this, Mengs was captured by Starfleet and eagerly sold Seelix out as a lead in their investigation into the Branded Lady Crime Group. Starfleet officers from the USS Valley Forge later caught up to Seelix on Legia IX where she was taken into custody, though not before attempting to flee with the aid of projectile tribbles.
Whilst Mengs was eventually granted freedom by Starfleet Intelligence as part of the negotiated deal, Seelix remains in Starfleet custody as they attempt to put her contact with the Scryer network to use. Residing now on DS13 as a guest of Starfleet Intelligence [quarters reinforced with forcefields after multiple escape attempts], Seelix has piqued the interest of several officers who frequently visit her in an effort to understand the troubled young woman and find a way to help her. Though she remains steadfastly insistent that the only thing she needs is to be reunited with her lost ship...
