Often times Myrna will hide behind sarcasm, however she is a sensitive person. For the sake of her very people oriented career, Myrna has tried to cultivate her own sophisticated version of cool, though inwardly she’s really more of a geek with a particular love for science fiction and fantasy. Unknowingly she frequently recognized the island in some of the things she reads. Because her defense responses are sarcasm and pushing people away, she’s sometimes seen as rather put-offish. Often times Myrna goes off by herself or finds herself lonely.
The child of a civilian and DHARMA Initiative scientist, Myrna spent the first four years of her life on the island until 1977 when her mother, Lauren and her two children moved off of the island, leaving her father. Off the island, she found out she was pregnant and the next year gave birth to her daughter, Kolour Mah. While she was born on the island, her siblings were born off island. They moved to southern California, where Myrna believes she was born. Lauren told her children that her father had died before Kolour was born.
After high school, she went on to Notre Dame de Namur University in San Francisco (on a track scholarship) and got her B.A. in History.
She went on to the University of Chicago and got her graduate degree in European History. Not finished, she went on to also get her doctorate, this time in Language Interpretation and Translation. While she worked on her doctorate, Myrna worked as a professor at Notre Dame de Namur, the school she got her B.A. from.
She met Michael St. James, a banker in Los Angeles. They dated and were eventually married in 1998. While it was good at first, in 2000 it began to go downhill after Myrna suffered a miscarriage.
In 2002 Myrna got a job offer to teach Latin, one of the five languages she knew at the time, at a private organization in Portland, Oregon. With a failed marriage and a job she didn’t particularly enjoy anymore, Myrna accepted and was recruited as an Other to the island.
Born a month early, Myrna was born to Lauren and Chen Mah on the island in 1973. While Lauren was a civilian, Chen was a zoologist who worked on the Hydra station for the DHARMA Initiative. In 1975 her mother had her younger brother, Peng Mah. Peng, more commonly known as Peter, was the middle child. Lauren and Chen’s marriage began to go downhill until in 1977 Lauren and her two children moved off of the island, leaving Chen. Off the island, she found out she was pregnant and the next year gave birth to her daughter, Kolour Mah.
