- Commander Vaughn was a former operative with Starfleet Special Operations. He became Kira Nerys' new first officer on Deep Space 9 (and commanding officer of the USS Defiant).
- Vaughn has been offered promotions many times over the years, but in keeping with his mission with Special Ops, prefers to remain a commander in order to keep a low profile. Even so, officers all the way to the rank of admiral routinely rely on Vaughn for advice, and generally do not attempt to pull rank on him.
- He has a strained relationship with his daughter, Starfleet Ensign Prynn Tenmei, ever since an incident with Prynn's mother Ruriko, who had been assimilated by the Borg seven years prior to the novels under his command. On the Gamma Quadrant missions their relationship was under repair until Ruriko's assimilated corpse was found. Ruriko attacked her daughter and attempted to assimilate her, and Elias was forced to kill Ruriko in defense. Prynn blamed him for months for this incident. Vaughn eventually accepted a promotion to the rank of captain and for a time commanded Deep Space Nine and later a starship before perishing due to injuries sustained during the Borg invasion.
