"Choose to live."
– Elnor to Tenqem Adrev, 2399 ("Absolute Candor")

Elnor was a male Romulan who lived during the late 24th century. He was a survivor of the Romulan supernova event and was relocated to Vashti, where he trained with the Qowat Milat to follow the Way of Absolute Candor and to proficiently use a tan qalanq.


In the early 2380s, during Admiral Picard's effort to rescue Romulans from the impending Romulan supernova, a young Elnor was taken under the wing of the Qowat Milat, on Vashti, in the Beta Quadrant.

Picard visited the place several times and the Qowat Milat helped to relocate over 250,000 refugees on Vashti alone. Despite his slight aversion of children, Picard grew fond of the young Elnor, often telling him stories about the late Commander Data. On one occasion, he brought him a copy of the book, The Three Musketeers, which they read together.

During a fencing lesson with the boy, Picard was informed of the rogue synths' attack on Mars. Shocked at the news, he bid farewell to the Romulans and told them he'd be back soon. (PIC: "Absolute Candor")

The reunionEdit

Picard failed to return to the enclave, and in the chaos of the following years, Qowat Milat were unable to find a better place for Elnor to live. He thus remained with the sisters, training with a tan qalanq.

In 2399, Picard finally returned to Vashti aboard La Sirena and pleaded for the Qowat Milat's help in his quest to find and protect Soji Asha. At the urging of their leader, Zani, Picard made his case to Elnor. Now a young man, Elnor initially expressed his frustration by Picard's abandonment, but eventually agreed to bind himself to the mission as a qalankhkai, since it met the requirements for worthiness, i.e. it was a lost cause. (PIC: "Absolute Candor")



Background informationEdit

Elnor was played by Evan Evagora.

Elnor wears a belt with "sem n'hak kon" inscribed on i. This means "now is the only moment,[1] something akin to what Kamin says in TNG: "The Inner Light".
