Elena is an attractive, forceful young lady of approximately 24 years of age. She is of slightly above average height and weight, (roughly 5'9" and weighs 150 lbs) and has long blonde hair and blue, icy eyes. Her face is partially hidden by a helm, however. She average build hides impressive strength, both inner and physically. She constantly carries her greatsword with her. She keeps her armor shined to an amazing gleam. Looking presentable honors Iomedae, as others can see her pride in her ability to honor her Lady. If her eyes are observed while she casts spells, they ever-so-briefly turn so white they are almost clear, a clue to her draconic heritage.
All Ellena has known her entire life is battling demons. Her parents felt the calling, joining the fight, and took the child to Kenabres at an early age. Her entire life has been spent on the battlelines, only seeing her parents infrequently, as they returned to take only short respites from their duty. She easily took to the teachings of the other clergy in the town and has emerged a bit of a crusader in her own right, joining the Everbright Crusdaers, one of the most well respected groups in Iomedae's service. She has begun advancing in the Crusaders, as her fierce personality and drive are hardly ever duplicated, even by those of whom follow Iomedae.
Ellena has learned to always be on guard, even while in town, however. As a young child, she was taken in by one of the demonic "witches," the town has hunted so rampantly. She was beaten mercilessly by the fiend, and would have been killed if not for timely intervention by one of her church leaders. After some investigation, Ellena and the others found out she was indeed not tricked by a witch, but instead an elf female a few nights before there was to be a blood moon rise. Ellena was kept hidden in the city for a few days and then as the moon rose, she was tied to a ritual emblem on a floor where the moonlight would soon shine through a high opening in the ceiling. The woman who lured her into the trap appeared, conducted part of the ritual, poured a strange concoction onto her forehead, and then scratched her with a sharpened fingernail. For a moment, as Ellena looked at her form--her face was hidden in shadow under a hood--she thought she glimpsed a flicker in her image and saw for a moment a horrible demon 18' tall with four arms, two puny and undeveloped and two with huge claws like a crab and spikes along its purple and red skin. The paladin fell into a coma. She was later told that crusaders discovered a secret cult of Baphomet and when they raided the site, they found her. She was nursed back to health, but the ritual left its scars, including occasional flashbacks and nightmares. The nightmares always seem to fall on the night of the full moon. Ellena's bones healed and her bruises went away, but she still remembers the worst pain of all--the humiliation of being tricked by the honey-tongued monster. She has strengthened her body and her faith since then, and waits for the day she makes her parents proud and joins the front lines herself.
Her fervor, or paranoia, depending on how you look at it, leads to her checking most every new person or thing she meets for evil. She doesn't see how that could possible make anyone uncomfortable. To her it is practical. If you aren't evil, you shouldn't care, right?
