|Owner (if NPC)||Jayla Kij|
|Hair Color||Honey Brown|
|Physical Description||Elisha is tall and thin, almost willowy. She has an easy, yet shy smile that gives her a girl-next-door appearance. Her light brown hair falls to the middle of her back, though it is usually kept up in elaborate twists or buns while on duty. Off duty, she is to be found in flowing shirts and dresses, always very modest. She doesn't own any revealing clothing because she thinks it looks trashy on her.|
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Elisha is very quiet and shy. She longs for friends, but doesn't know how to get them. She is slightly awkward socially, but once she counts you her friend, she opens up and becomes very talkative. She makes a loyal friend who will stick up for you, even if it's against an entire Romulan Armada.
She doesn't relate well to men on a romantic level; she tends to run very fast from romantic situations. She doesn't really understand how to deal with a man who shows romantic interest in her. She will often make excuses to NOT go on dates simply because she doesn't really know what to do on one or how to act. She would rather avoid the situation than get stuck in it.

|Personal History||Elisha was born the youngest of six children in Sao Paulo, Brazil. As the only girl, most of her elder brothers felt the need to protect her from everything and as a result, she never really learned how to relate to people for herself.
In school, she always had very few friends- two at most- and never accepted offers for dates. When the popular kids in her secondary school befriended her, Elisha found herself longing for the smaller crowds of primary school. Even though she still hung out with the popular kids, she rarely went to their parties or even really spoke to most of them.
Her mother made her take voice lessons from the time she was 13 years old, thinking that putting her on stage would help bring her out of her shell. Though Elisha performed at several recitals throughout the years, she never got fully got over her cripling stage fright.
It was her brother Micah who convinced her to apply to Starfleet Academy. He was the one brother who tried to push her out into the world and interact with all kinds of people. Upon exceptance to the Academy, he was the one she told first, even before their parents.
In the Academy, she avoided large groups and instead ingrained herself with the science geeks, where she felt right at home. It was a small group, but still larger than any to which she had felt a part before. Still, she picked the group that wasn't interested in parties and would rather just read all day. As such, she has made it through the Academy with top marks and is set to graduate fifth in her class, pending satisfactory reviews from her direct superior on the Black Hawk.
