Eli was Victor's roommate at Lockland University. He is precocious and charming, but there is something off about him.
|“||He was handsome,with broad shoulders and a firm handshake and eyes that were brown but alive in that glittering, almost drunk sort of way. Sydney had a hard time looking away from him.||”|
He has rich brown hair, brown eyes and a lanky build. He is often described as being very handsome with a magnetic presence. He hasn't aged a day since he acquired his ability to heal.
|“||...something about Eli was decidedly wrong. He was like one of those pictures full of small errors, the kind you could only pick out by searching the image from every angle, and even then, a few always slipped by. On the surface, Eli looked perfectly normal, but now and then Victor would catch a crack, a sideways glance, a moment when his roommate’s face and his words, his look and his meaning, would not line up.||”|
Eli appears very charming and charismatic, able to quickly gain the trust of others and is often able to get his way because of this. Since his university days, he has proven to be rather ambitious and smart by being top of his classes and also by being able to figure out how EOs are made.
However, under this charismatic mask, he is also very apathetic, manipulative, calculating and self-righteous.
Not much is known about Eli's past. His father was a minister and he physically abused Eli, causing him to have various scars on his back.
Like Victor, he attended Lockland as a pre-med student.
|“||You remember me, and I'll remember you, and that way we won't be forgotten.||”|
|“||The were like magnets, thought Victor, each with their own pull. They showed it around class, and around campus, people always drifting toward them. Even Victor felt the draw. And then when they got close enough to each other… well.||”|
They started dating after being introduced to each other by Victor during their sophomore year. The two are described as being a perfect match not only as a couple but also in intelligence, attractiveness, and ambition. Around Angie, Eli is a caring and attentive boyfriend, all traces of his darker side disappearing in her presence. Eli truly cared for Angie and felt that she had kept him grounded and sane, but despite himself he still felt a certain emptiness.
Powers and Abilities Edit
Eli has the unconscious ability to rapidly heal from any injury he sustains. Since he has not physically aged past his early twenties, despite the fact that ten years had gone by, it can be assumed that his regeneration also prevents him from aging, or at least drastically reduces his rate of aging.
Weaknesses: The only known vulnerability is that his body cannot heal if the object that caused the injury is still in his body such as a knife or a bullet. Victor contemplated that his body might heal around a bullet if it was left in his body.
- He is a Leo.
