Personality & Traits

General Overview Elnora loves to think. She grew up looking at people, things, her surroundings and asking one question: why? To find that answer, she enlisted with Starfleet, one of the premier scientific organizations in existence. As a scientist, she began to question her people's unwavering adherence to the belief in The Prophets. Now, her beliefs are more moderate, she still finds comfort in them at difficult times (S3E2: Dangerous Liaisons). As progressive as that attitude is, she does insist on at least one Bajoran tradition. She prefers to be addressed by surname first and her first name last.
Strengths & Weaknesses Elnora is inquisitive, open minded, and objective, all the qualities desirable in a scientist. However, her dedication to the pursuit of scientific knowledge has left her ill at ease in social situations. Her empirical thinking does little to help her socially with people suggesting that she is insensitive.
Ambitions Career-wise, her ambition would be to become a senior researcher. Yet, it would be the thrill of a lifetime to personally discover a new race or culture.
Hobbies & Interests For Elnora, her hobbies and her work often blend together.

Pre-Starfleet

History Elnora was born and raised in Janitza Province of Bajor during the waning years of the Occupation ((S4:E3: Everything you do or Say (is public relations)). The Lumo family had been farmers up until the Occupation, now they labored on the very land they used to own. Life was hard, with the vast majority of the harvest going in tribute to the Occupation forces. Deemed essential to the Occupation, farmers like the Lumo family suffered slightly less than other families, but suffered nonetheless. Aside from Cardassian cruelty, Elnora’s abiding memory of that time was of hunger.

Yet, working in the fields gave the young Elnora a strong appreciation of and connection to nature, providing her with some of her earliest scientific experiments. Supplementing Elnora’s meager formal education were family stories about life on Bajor before the Occupation, Bajoran history, and other fantastic tales. Elnora would later acknowledge that these stories played a large role in her later career. Elnora also cherished her mother's ability to brew Dekka tea in a manner that she would spend years trying to reproduce. In 2369, Federation forces arrived on Bajor just days before the local occupying forces were due to execute all civilians in the district. The retreating Cardassians did not have time to poison the soil, as they had done elsewhere, but did manage to set fire to the harvest which hampered rebuilding efforts for months afterwards. During the commotion, Elnora and her mother fled to woods on the outskirts of the property to eventually be discovered by a Starfleet officer, Sigmund Kennick. Kennick was the first human Elnora had ever seen and she was fascinated by his lack of nasal ridges (S4E2: My Sun Sets to Rise Again).

The following years were relatively quiet for Elnora. Now able to grow and learn in relative peace and safety, she excelled in schooling thanks to the good memory and attention to detail cultivated listening to her family stories. The family stories ignited her curiosity of ancient history and culture. Her fondness of natural sciences reflected in her academics. Her academics and her positive early experience of the Federation led her to apply to Starfleet. The odds of acceptance were long, but she was determined to try.

On several occasions, her parents hosted agricultural survey parties touring provinces to assess agricultural practices, rebuilding efforts, and crop yields. On one particularly memorable occasion, the survey party included a female exobotanist from the Federation station Deep Space 9. Elnora talked to her about the Federation and expressed her hopes for joining Starfleet. Elnora naively asked her if she could influence her application. The woman laughed saying that was unlikely, but if she wanted something enough, anything was possible. Before the survey party left a few days later, but the woman sought Elnora out and wished her the best of luck.

Sometime after that visit, Elnora was accepted to the Academy thanks to a strong application; yet she has always wondered if that woman had not done or said something on her behalf.... anything was possible. Her parents were apprehensive, suggesting that Elnora should stay on Bajor and help rebuild her homeworld; Elnora persisted comparing herself to the early Bajoran explorers who traveled the stars.

Academy life proved to be an adjustment with the regimented structure regularly grating on her nerves, reminding her somewhat of the Occupation, but with resources that she had never dreamed of as a child, Elnora flourished academically and used her studies as a haven from the militaristic bureaucracy. Her desire to explore the galaxy as soon as possible led her to choose an enlisted track, though she remained behind after graduation to pursue further classroom and laboratory research before setting out for the stars…

Starfleet Service

Service History From 2378 to 2379 Trainee Lumo was roommates with Erin Soli.

In 2382, while serving on Starbase 211, then Crewman Lumo was denied permission to serve on Starfleet reconstruction team working to rebuild Cardassia Prime, ostensibly due to the heavy volume of artifact post processing in the wake of the successful Hogar expedition. Lumo viewed this action not as a routine staffing decision, but as discrimination and unknowingly escalated the issue to the base commander. Under intense cross-examination, Lumo's department head confirmed that her reassignment was politically motivated. As no places remained on the team assigned to Cardassia, she was instead detached to assist in the reconstruction of Betazed. While on the planet Elnora had the opportunity to be the guest at a 'traditional' wedding and all that the ceremony entailed.

2387, Elnora reported for her first starship assignment aboard the Venture as an Archaeology and Anthropology specialist assigned to the night shift.

In 2388, Elnora was transferred to alpha shift in a departmental reorganization (S3E2: Dangerous Liaisons). Elnora was present at welcoming party for Captain Ritter in the Starlight Lounge, though did not particularly enjoy the experience. (S3E2: Dangerous Liaisons) Soon after, she was tasked with writing the cultural briefing on the inhabitants of Haess III (S3E2: Dangerous Liaisons).

During Venture's refit at McKinley Station, Elnora was assigned to temporary duty on Earth at Starfleet Headquarters, in the Office of Exploratory Oversight. Tasked with coordinated the reports of the various exploration teams, she soon became frustrated and bored by the largely administrative workload. Seeking an escape, Elnora was invited to the Division of Planetary Operations Annex in Yokohama by her Academy roommate, Erin. Together the two women contrived excuses to visit the South Pacific for a few days, with Elnora ostensibly conducting a wildlife survey. Upon her return to San Francisco, Elnora's attitude did not improve and this earned her no praise from her senior non-commissioned officer supervisor. She subsequently rejoined Venture's company upon completion of the refit (S4E1: Build me straight, O worthy Master!).

Aboard the Venture, during Red Alert conditions, Elnora acts as a Casualty Coordinator. In this role, she performs personnel accounting duties and marshals assigned crew to safe areas (S4E2: My Sun Sets to Rise Again). When the Venture arrived in the Transit Corridor, she was assigned the task of building cultural profiles of those worlds affected by the terms of the Treaty to assist in diplomatic efforts to relocate colonists (S4E2: My Sun Sets to Rise Again). Following the attack on the Venture by rogue Romulan forces, Elnora was among those trapped in the ship's Mess Hall, where she gave aid to the injured Lieutenant Dirk Allaway (S4E2: My Sun Sets to Rise Again). Elnora later visited Allaway who was recovering from his injuries bringing him 'Jello' to eat. (S4E2: My Sun Sets to Rise Again). She was later tasked with creating diplomatic protocols for the visit to the Reyan Prime (S4:E3:Everything you do or Say (is public relations)).

Lumo was assigned the science away teams tasked to gather cultural information on the colony. Later she was de facto leader of a group forced to evacuate the planet in the wake of civil unrest; her own departure was delayed due to the search for a missing crewmember. She later returned to the planet as an adviser to security forces searching for the impostor Lieutenant Riis. (S4:E3: Everything you do or Say (is public relations)).
