Her focus on helping others has led to her additional degree in Psychology in addition to Medicine as she studies Theology and Thanatology. She believes in being open in her approach to others no matter their background.

Her consistent desire to study and learn, eat into her time to relax with the crew. She can be difficult to connect to because of her habit of disappearing into little nooks and crannies in the ship to read. She often neglects her social life in an attempt increase her knowledge. She often needs a little push to be reminded to socialize with others and get her nose out of the books.
|Ambitions||Tovanna’s primary ambition is to become the top medical officer in Starfleet. Her goal is to help in the repopulation of the El-Aurian people since their numbers have dwindled so low.

|Personal History||The Mah family were among the few that finished the journey to Earth after the Nexus incident. Her mother and father settled in a remote area on the ocean to raise their daughter and assimilate themselves into their new home world. Tovanna’s father, Amiasos hoped after his daughter reached her age of majority she would be married to another of the El-Aurian families he stayed in contact with. Her parents kept her at a reasonable distance from outsiders and ensured she understood what was expected of her to ensure the continuance of her people in the future. While she was a child she excelled in her studies and was noted among academic circles for her multidisciplinary studies in scientific pursuits. Little did most realize her academic success was due to her seclusion and abundance of time spent in study. Her parents were approached on multiple occasions about her future in scholastic and Starfleet careers which was not shared with Tovanna until she was about 20 Earth years. At that point she decided to take part in Starfleet Medical training with the understanding that she would be staying on Earth until she was no longer considered a “child” by her culture and would be learning about the possible medical applications for improving the El-Aurian population. Her parents agreed with the conditions of her enrollment to Starfleet and she began her career in medicine. After finishing he standard medical training she added genetics and Psychology to her studies to increase her time studying per her agreement with her parents. As she stayed on with Starfleet Academy she finished her training and took on assignments at Command to finish her time until she was no longer obligated to stay. During this time her parents tried setting her up with multiple El-Aurian men, many of whom were not within a reasonable age range for her due to the dramatic decline in their population. Her parents had her brother so she might get to know him and she left for her first mission off shore, the Hera.|
