Personal History
In 2376, Matthias was counseling the Andorian Shathrissia zh'Cheen (or "Thriss"), who was suffering from depression due to the absence of her bond-mate Thirishar ch'Thane, although she was unable to prevent Thriss committing suicide. Matthias was later invited to Andor to attend Thriss' sending (or funeral). While on Andor, she purchased saf from an Andorian vendor which was later stolen used on Charivretha zh'Thane, and also helped Prynn Tenmei, when she accidental over dosed during her trip with Thirishar ch'Thane to the cilty, she was luck to have medical folks that understand the problems with saf, after meeting Reij Clan. Matthias was part of a strike team that liberated Andor's Federation Councillor, Charivretha zh'Thane, from a radical faction that held her hostage. Phillipa was a capable counselor with a highly developed sense of professional ethics. She once refused to release details of her sessions with Shathrissia zh'Cheen to Colonel Kira Nerys and Lieutenant Ro Laren, unless they directly dealt with station security. Her assistant counselors aboard DS9 included Lieutenants Valeska Knezo and Hamish Collins. Following the Destruction of Deep Space 9, Matthias and her staff relocated to Bajoran Space Central on Bajor, where Starfleet assigned her a third assistant counselor, Ensign Valinar. Lieutenant Commander Matthias was assigned to Deep Space 9 (II) prior to its official opening in November 2379. Due to the increased number of personnel and residents, chief medical officer Doctor Julian Bashir added a fourth assistant counselor to her staff, Ensign Delinia Phlox.
