Position: Chief Intelligence Officer
Species: Trill (Unjoined)
Eyes: Hazel Brown
Elena has a tattoo upon the back of her neck of the Trill symbol for courage and strength, this is rarely seen though because it is hidden under Perim's long brunette hair. Other than the tattoo, the only other marks Elena has are scars covering a third of her right arm; it's clear she has had extensive surgery done upon the arm and her shoulder. The scars can be easily healed. When the offer has been made to take the scars away Elena has responded negatively, sometimes even aggressively, and has refused treatment each time. The arm itself is perfectly healthy, and doesn't affect her performance in anyway.
Lieutenant Elena Perim is an Intelligent Officer with an honest determination to do the right thing, though it has been reported that she can be rather harsh and to the point. It has also been said that she sometimes clashes with the command staff, but nothing has ever been too serious and her previous commanding officers simply say that she is a strong, hot headed woman who speaks her mind a bit too much on occasion. Underneath the rather hard, almost bitchy, exterior however, lays a softer woman who can be tender, caring and emotional.
Elena was born into a normal Trill family, her father was a security officer and her mother was a renowned artist. Both parents were very open minded, and allowed their children to choose their own path in life, no matter what that might be. The path Elena choice, from a young age, was to follow in her father's footsteps, and become a Trill Security Force officer. When Elena turned eighteen, she started the training needed to become a security officer, and when she passed with flying colours. Elena became a trill security office, where she served for four years. In her early twenties however, Elena decided to leave the security force and sign up with Starfleet.
With four years of security experience behind her, it wasn’t that hard for Elena to get a place within the academy. While she was at the academy, Elena pretty much kept herself to herself, and never really mixing with a lot of people. Eventually however Elena managed to create a small circle of friends, it was within that circle was where she met a young man by the name of Ryan Ashmore. At first they were just good friends, but they did have a pretty serious relationship together at one point. In their senior year however, things took a turn for the worse for the two, when Elena caught Ryan with another woman. Their relationship ended right there and then, and ever since Elena hasn't really been able to open her heart up to anyone else.
Shortly after the whole Ashmore incident, Elena graduated from the academy and her first Assignment was on board the U.S.S Leeds as a security officer. Elena served there for a year before being transferred to the U.S.S Lexington, where she became a squad leader. She served two years of duty on the Lexington, before she was promoted to Lt JG, and was given a new assignment to a space station called deep space 12. Elena served as squad leader aboard DS12 for a further three years, before she was finally promoted to full Lt, and was given the position of Chief of Security.
The tour upon DS12 came to an end when Elena was transferred to the U.S.S Solaris, where she was assigned the chief security/tactical officer position. She served two years upon the ship without incident. But then while the Solaris was on a routine patrol mission within its assigned sector, a distress call came through from a federation outpost, requesting evacuation under heavy fire from an unknown force. The Solaris answered the distress call, and set course for the planet, when the ship arrived in the planet’s orbit, they came under heavy attack themselves, which later turned into a full on dogfight within space.
After a few hours of back to back fighting, the captain of the Solaris, one William Maddox, gave an order to withdraw, while there was still quite a few people and personal left down on the planet below. The details of what happened next have been classified by Starfleet command. But what is known however is that Elena saved many lives at the risk of her very own life. Once Elena had fully recovered from the incident, she returned back to her post upon the Solaris. But things weren’t the same as they used to be, especially between herself and Maddox, so when she put in for a transfer off the ship. The Captain didn’t think twice about it, and approved the request, and made sure Elena was transferred, not only out of the security department, but out of the way as well. That was when the last piece of the now classified puzzle was buried along with everything else.
