Although most of the time, she is relatively cheerful and energetic, when her sister is around, or mentioned, her mood turns bitter.

She also is very impulsive and often takes her work too seriously.
Notable Possessions: Her Tseng plushie, pocket photo of her and her mother and sister.

History: Elena was raised in a normal middle classed family in the higher part of the city. She was raised in secrecy, the reason being that she wasn't born exactly human. She was born half human half bird. It was said that it was because her mother did some works in the shinra labs while she was pregnant, but her mother had secrets of her own. Ashamed by her appearance, her Father kept her indoors, away from the rest of the world. As she grew, she had a close connection with her mother, and her older sister, the future female Gun wielding Turk from Before Crisis, whom I named Grace. The only people who knew Elena's secret was her mother's friend and her son, Rufus. Elena and Rufus were good friends, and played together often. Her Father, on the other hand, ignored her most of the time.
When She was 9, her mother dissapeared. Eventually her father remarried. Her stepmother was nice enough, but she often ignored her and always forgot her name. The sisters began to grow apart, until bitter feelings resounded between them. When she was 11, her father finally decided to take Elena to a specialized doctor. After days of surgery, she finally managed to have a normal human appearance. After that, she started a new life.
Elena was jealous of Grace up to the point of hatred, as she was always in her shadow. So she was always striving to prove herself. When she was in high school at Shinra Private Academy, her father decided to put her in the military program Grace was in, even though she didn't really want to. There Elena strived to match up to her sister, eventually managing to reach the top elite group of students. She even was reunited with Rufus, who had gotten his cold personality by then. Kindled by the childhood memories and his curious interest in her, the two had a secret friendship, that kind of can be interpreted as dating.
Shouldered by her past, her sibling rivalry, and her hard work, Elena still manages to show her cheerful nature in her life.
