Commander Donatra was an officer in the Romulan military, and commander of the IRW Valdore, a Mogai-class warbird and IRW Scythe, an Tavara-class ship. In that capacity, she was a co-conspirator in the plot to elevate Shinzon to the position of praetor of the Romulan Empire in 1523, and, along with fellow commander Suran, acted as a military advisor to Shinzon. She is also most likely to be the Founding Members of the Axis Joint Military.
Donatra was born in 2327, and was raised by her mother and father, both commanders in the Romulan military. She was taught by them to think freely, but to keep such thoughts to herself. Donatra considered the city of Vela'Setora on Romulus to be her home.
