Truth, Changes, Everything

I just want to be normal.
— Elena in Summons

Elena Michaels is the female lead and protagonist of Bitten. She is the only known female werewolf in the world, the fiancée of Clayton Danvers and the ex-girlfriend of Philip McAdams.

Early HistoryEdit

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 college.

To pay off her college Elena applied to be an assistant to an anthropologist professor, Clayton Danvers. They fell in love and quickly became engaged. Clayton brought Elena to Stonehaven where his adoptive father, Jeremy Danvers, lived.

Jeremy Danvers was in the middle of a turn when Elena turned around toward the woods. He thought Elena saw him so he ordered Clayton away so he could kill her, because one of many strict rules are that if a human knows about werewolves they must be killed.

Clayton not wanting this to be his love's fate, bites Elena so she can have another chance. Biting her was a huge risk, there had never been a female werewolf, women are not strong enough for the change so they usually die.

Somehow Elena survived and now is the the only female werewolf, but Elena, not knowing the truth behind why Clayton bit her broke off their engagement.

Throughout BittenEdit

Season OneEdit

Elena Michaels moved away from Stonehaven in Bear Valley, NY to Toronto where she had met Philip McAdams. She tried to live a normal human life away from her pack especially her ex-fiance, Clayton Danvers.

Elena's pack member, Logan Jonsen also lived in Toronto to be a psychologist, also wanting to keep distance from the pack to live a normal life with his girlfriend, Rachel Sutton.

Her plan didn't work when she was called to Stonehaven by the pack Alpha, Jeremy Danvers. She was called back to help track a rogue murderous Mutt, a werewolf that isn't part of a pack.

Elena and Clay tracked down the Mutt at a warehouse party where chaos quickly followed after the Mutt turned. He ended up killing a woman and biting a man. The Mutts chaos was short lived, he was hit by a truck. The man who was bitten was "mercifully" killed by Clay so he wouldn't have to spend any longer in agony.

Elena wanting to go back to her new life in Toronto and not wanting got spend another second with Clay leaves Stonehaven.

Not soon after Elena is called back to Stonehaven once again putting her life on hold and causing her to lie to Philip about why she had to leave again, because one of the pack members, Peter Myers, was murdered by another Mutt.

Season TwoEdit

Season ThreeEdit


Elena is a smart, helpful, brave and caring young woman. She is a gifted photographer.

Physical AppearanceEdit

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.


Elena in wolf form


Being a werewolf Elena possesses all the basic abilities of her kind such as being physically stronger and faster than humans, possessing heightened senses, prolonged youth and the ability to shift into a wolf. Evidence of this strength was shown when she easily broke the arm of Thomas LeBlanc. Elena also possesses heightened senses, which she displayed when she was able to hear the conversation between Philip's sister and mother at the awards ceremony. She has also shown to possess an even greater sense of smell than that of others in the pack and is the best tracker among them. An ability that is unique to her is that she can prevent the change mid transition, which no other werewolf has been able to do.
