Who is Elnor in Star Trek Picard?
Elnor (played by Evan Evagora) was introduced in the latest instalment called Absolute Candor.
The character is a warrior Romulan living on the planet Vashti, which was inhabited by displaced Romulans.
Elnor and Picard were reunited when the latter turned up on the planet to enlist more people to his cause.
Picard knew Elnor when he was orphaned as a child and is something of a father-figure to him.

“Given how he was raised, he was in a sect of these warrior nuns known as the Mowat Milat.
“The interesting thing about that is he is the only male in this female sect of warriors, so I guess you’ll see some feminine traits among Elnor.”
Evagora went on say: “They practice this thing known as Absolute Candor, so they don’t know how to lie and will only every speak their mind and speak the truth.
“You can imagine how a character like that on board The Last Surrender with this array of characters and how that will play-off.”
Evagora’s words hint at potential and unintentional conflict with the rest of the group.
The Australian star confirmed Elnor would be a major recurring character in the series.
He teased: “After this episode, you’ll see more of Elnor.”
The role of Elnor is the first major part for the rising star, who has previously starred in Fantasy Island and Secret City.
He admitted he was cast last-minute in Star Trek: Picard and was drawn to the role because of his love for the sci-fi franchise and wanting to work with Stewart.
