Nelson Elam
Died 3071
Affiliation Clan Goliath Scorpion

Nelson Elam (d. 3071) was the saKhan of Clan Goliath Scorpion from 3052 until his death.

Personal History[edit]

SaKhan Elam believed his Clan's shift towards a more offensive stature could spell its doom. Though pleasantly surprised at the success achieved by Khan Suvorov's military reforms, the SaKhan still brooded over the Scorpions' weakened homeworld defenses.[1]

Personality and Appearance[edit]

A tattoo of a goliath scorpion covered his shaven scalp, a remnant of his early days spent following the aggressive Crusader path.[1]


Nelson Elam was killed following a Trial of Refusal against ilKhan Garret Sainze.
