— Elena in Summons
Elena was orphaned at a young age when both of her parents died, with no living relatives she was placed in the state care system and lived with foster families. At some point as a child she was molested by a neighbour, Victor Olson and reported him to the authorities who was later charged and sent to prison. After graduating from high school Elena attended.
She became a werewolf after Clayton bit her but later discovered he had done it to save her from Jeremy Danvers who wanted to kill her after he thought she had witnessed him during a change.
Elena is described as being a slender, tall woman with a "werewolf's typically athletic build", standing at around 5'10. Furthermore, she has blue eyes and white-blonde hair that is mid-back length. It is stated in the books that Elena has not worn makeup since the 1990s, but despite this she has "wholesome good looks" and people have stated that if she made an effort to fix herself up, she would be very beautiful. Contrary to the previous statement, others have said that Elena possesses a natural beauty and does not need any makeup. When she is in her wolf form, she becomes a blonde wolf. Her wolf appearance is similar to that of a husky or another big dog.
Being a werewolf Elena has all the basic abilities of her kind such as being physically stronger that that of humans which she shown when she easily broke the arm of Thomas LeBlanc, heightened senses which she displays when she is able to hear the conversation between Philip and his mother at the awards ceremony but has also shown she has a more enhanced heightened sense of smell than that of others in the pack and is the best tracker among them. She can also control the change which no other person has been able to do.
