Elana was born to Rache Moray, a senior Imperial official. She never knew her mother and her father refuses to speak about her.
She studied at the Kemreth Academy, the most prestigious school on Kemreth Prime where she learned computer science. There she became involved in the Student Resistance along with several of her friends. Particularly after several prominent aliens went missing and her professors began to vanish.
Here, she also met Vosh Lee, a daring Rebel Alliance pilot who persuaded her to help the Rebellion more actively by acquiring additional ships. She left the world as a stow-away unhappy with her fathers involvement in the genocide of Alderaan and the local alien population and sought to steal the Lucky Star from the rest of her crew.
