Elena lived with her mother, father, and two brothers in a village near Helycon, the capital of the Kingdom of Elyria. People would come from miles around to buy her wares. Though she is skilled in home economics and various tasks, she is a terrible cook.
Elena first met Aeron when she found him lying unconscious, wounded, near her home. While her parents warned her that it was dangerous keeping someone from Athos in their house during the war, she was determined to help him since her father was saved by a Certan soldier during the war. Elena loves to sing and has sung ever since she was a little girl. While performing at the village festival she was struck with the beasts curse. Only the flesh of the masters who reside in the twelve towers can remove it.
