Elaan, an Elasian female
This is a PC and NPC rated species.

The Elasians are a humanoid species native to the planet Elas of the Tellun system.


Federation scientists described Elasian males as "vicious and arrogant" in early reports. Females have the ability to produce Elasian tears, a biochemical compound transmittable to males (including Human men) upon contact. The affected male becomes romantically infatuated and somewhat enthralled to the woman who infects them. Over the centuries, men of Elas have tried to overcome the tear's power, without success.


In the 23rd century, the Elasian government included a Council of Nobles, and great homage and deference was paid to their royal Dohlman. Their technological level was pre-warp; with nuclear powered weapons and vessels. Some Elasians wore a light and translucent body armor.


Elasians consider themselves a warrior people, and held little regard for the relatively gentle culture of their neighbors, the Troyians of Troyius. By 2268, after a long period of war with the Troyians, the two civilizations recognized the possibility of their mutual destruction. Some hope for peaceful coexistance began when elements of both governments supported an arranged marriage between Elaan, the Dohlman of Elas, and the ruler of Troyius.

In 2268, the Prime Directive did not seem to be an issue for the Federation in the Tellun system. Pre-warp Elasians did not appear to be surprised or impressed by beaming aboard a starship. Some level of contact between Elasians and Klingons had already been established: Kryton's cooperation in sabotage of the Enterprise, and the Klingon Empire's existing awareness of Elasian dilithium deposits.

The Elasians joined the Federation in 2258.
