In 2372, Lephi was born in Ferenginar, Ferenginar. Her father was a moderately successful freighter captain who spent much of her early years off planet, working to earn profit for his now larger family. Her early years were remarkably unremarkable with her hitting Ferengi child milestones at roughly the average ages. Once she began speaking, things were anything but unremarkable. Though she had the natural skills required by Ferengi to excel at profiteering it was obvious to many that her heart was not in it. Her brother tried hard to teach her the way a proper, profit motivated Ferengi was supposed to act, but she was much more interested in what her mother had to say. As she entered the Ferengi learning ages, this continued much to the embarrassment of her older brother who was often picked on for having a sibling that was so markedly different from the rest of the society they lived in. After more than a few subspace calls to their father’s freighter, he was convinced that the best thing for her was to journey off-world with him so she could learn to find her passion firsthand, away from the pressures of Ferenginar and the bad influence that he felt her mom was.
Her Naming Day ceremony came and went without much of the normal pomp and circumstance which suited her just fine. The crew aboard her father’s ship were initially cold to her, and gave her gifts accordingly. As such she only managed to secure a mere one bar of gold pressed latinum once she had sold the gifts for profit at a space station they stopped at.
FULL DETAILS: History
She is extremely ambitious, persistent, determined and somewhat stubborn. She is a hard worker, often to the detriment of her social life, though her growing friendships and budding relationship are beginning to change that. Being a woman on Ferenginar, she has been a people pleaser to a fault for as long as she could remember. She carries herself with a sense of hard earned pride, viewing herself as something of a trailblazer for female Ferengi officers in Starfleet.
She was raised in a world of commerce and trade, leaving her diplomacy and speaking skills finely honed. She is data driven and results oriented. She puts all she has into everything she does and doesn't settle for anything less than spectacular. Spending as much time as she has travelling the galaxy, her linguistic skills are sharper than most people her age. She is eager to please everyone in her life and is fiercely loyal. She is very good at pretending she is okay, even when she's not.
Despite outward appearances, Lephi is plagued with self doubt and internal criticism. Most of the time she can keep these things under control, but certain stressors and situations can cause her to spiral. She holds herself to rigorously high standards, sometimes to her own detriment. She has a bit of a quick temper when she feels she's been slighted, and often resents people she feels do not work as hard as she does. Often times she is guilty of taking herself too seriously, though she definitely knows how to have a good time in the right situations. Spending her whole life making deals and negotiating with every alien she came across has honed her ability to manipulate others, and she often uses it to get things she wants

Captain Thoran was Lephi's first CO following her assignment to the USS Atlantis upon her graduation from Starfleet Academy. Though her time under his fine leadership was cut tragically short just after the Atlantis crew transferred to the Chin'toka, she had spent many a shift learning from and growing under his tutelage. Though he is gone now, he forever lives on in her heart, and indeed in the hearts of the entire crew. Following his death, Lephi dove further into her work determined to make him proud posthumously.
Lephi first met Liz during a routine medical exam when they were both serving on the USS Atlantis. Sparks flew early, and after being bonded in trauma when they were both kidnapped, along with Wes Greaves, they became inseparable. After living together since the crew of the Atlantis transferred to the USS Chin'toka, Lephi proposed to her in a beautifully rendered holodeck recreation of Liz's favourite spot on Betazed. They are now in full on wedding planning mode.
Perennial thorn in her side
Wes burst into her life rather suddenly, interrupting her first date with Elizabeth and causing the trio to be kidnapped. After narrowly escaping the situation with her life, she was content to never see the man again. Unfortunately, he crashed the couple's Risian vacation a few months later where Lephi endured seeing more of him than she had ever needed to. A prank war ensued, which was won by Lephi and Liz when Wes got his feelings hurt and quit. Lephi would later invite Wes to her wedding in an attempt to mend the fences when she discovered Liz was cross with her over the whole ordeal.
The pair met in a hallway when Lephi almost ran directly into Lael and her daughter. Despite the embarrassing origins of their connection, they worked very well together on both the USS Atlantis and the USS Chin'toka. When Jarred passed away suddenly, Lael became Lephi's new mentor. Their relationship continued on in a strictly professional manner for a while, with Lephi having deep-seated respect for the Al-Leyan woman. Over time spent serving together and working long hours, the two gradually became friends until Lephi asked Lael to be her maid of honour at the upcoming nuptials to which Lael surprised the Ferengi by extending the same offer in reverse after accepting the role. Lephi has always felt that she could approach Lael for any professional issues she had, and now she happily knows she can talk to Lael about anything and the woman won't pull punches.
