Going through school, Elisa always had the potential to be the best in her class. She was afflicted by laziness however, and was more content to do the minimum that let her get by, rather then applying herself to be a star pupil. She didn't have very many friends going through school, although those she did, she held onto, and was very loyal to them.
Her teachers were not very impressed by Elisa, except for those few times when she managed to pull her act together and apply herself. In those cases, she would astound the teachers by performing above and beyond what they expected. Then she would get lazy again, and her performance would drop back down to where they were used to it being at.
When she was seventeen, Elisa decided to join the Academy, and go to Starfleet. Her parents were rather surprised by this, as neither of them were in it, nor was anyone they knew. Unbeknownst to them, a recruiter had come up to her shortly before graduation, and got her interested in the Academy. She had signed up, and was accepted. She left the day after graduation.
Elisa found the Academy a different kettle of fish then the relatively small home town she had left behind. She had managed to graduate her high school in the top twenty percentile, but that wasn't saying much in a graduating class of 153 people. When she got to the Academy, the classes were harder, there were more people, and for the first time since she could remember, Elisa didn't have any friends to console her when things got tough. She briefly tried to make friends with her first year roommate, a lady by the name of Clare Jenkins, but after a debacle involving a party held in their room, relations were severed after that. This was the time that Elisa made the decision that any social life that she did have - which wasn't much - or will have, was going to interfere with her goal. Her goal was to finally realize her potential, prove her parents right and her teachers wrong, and graduate at the head of her class. She missed her goal by fourteen people.
Most would have been satisifed with managing to do that well, but Elisa managed to turn it into some character flaw, that she couldn't reach her goals. Because of this, Elisa is constantly trying to outdo herself, and prove that she can do whatever she sets her mind to. She keeps that goal in front of her al the time, determined to be the best at whatever job she is currently doing.
After graduating the Academy, Elisa was assigned to the USS Miranda, under the Commanding Officer of Admiral Victor Murdock. She discovered that she was good at being in the Operations department, and performed her job to the utmost of her abilites. Her work did slightly go unnoticed, due to departmental difference under the head of the acting operations manager at the time, much to Elisa's chagrin. After a year serving aboard the Miranda, Elisa put in a transfer request to the USS Galaxy.
She exudes a "stay away from me" attitude wherever she goes, and very rarely wonders why no one tries to get to know her.
