Employment as a ClaymoreEdit

Nothing is known about Elena's past. She joined The Organization at the same time as Clare, who was around the same age. During their painful hours of their transformation, they comforted each other, which allowed them to embrace hands during their hours. It was stated by Elena that she had started work after Clare and how it was pitiful that she retired faster than her. Elena reached the limit of her human mind faster than Clare in an unknown circumstance and sent her Black Card via Rubel to Clare.[1]

Elena is killed by Clare.

Elena came to Mount Shire to wait for Clare, forcing back her yoki to meet with her. When Clare arrived with Raki, she says that she only remembers the good times she and Clare had together. As her face begins to distort, she tearfully says that, in order to hold back the Yoma within, a strong heart was needed and she never thought that she would reach her limit before Clare.

She is killed out of mercy by Clare while she is still a human, which she is grateful for, and is buried on Mount Shire with her sword to mark her grave.[1][2]



She was very close to Clare. She met her during her training since she was taken in at the same time Clare came to the Organization. They used to comfort each other during their painful hours of the transformation. This simple act of kindness moved Clare to consider Elena to be her only true friend during that time.[1]

Later, when talking to Teresa, Clare admitted she spent the entire night crying after her death.[3]

Behind the ScenesEdit
