Lieutenant Awn Elming was the head lieutenant of the Esk decade on Justice of Toren at the time of the Shis'urnan annexation, and was a favourite of Justice of Toren One Esk.

Lieutenant Awn's parents were bakers, and she had one younger sister, Basnaaid Elming.

On Shis'urna, she became friends with Lieutenant Skaiaat Awer, but was killed when Anaander Mianaai ordered Justice of Toren One Var to shoot her after refusing to spy on Lieutenant Skaiaat and report to Anaander Mianaai. The circumstances set off by her death prompted the destruction on Justice of Toren (excluding One Esk Nineteen, who later came to be known as Breq), and, ultimately and indirectly, the founding of the Provisional Republic of Two Systems.
