- —VC3 COMPLETE ARTWORKS Description
Elliot is a natural-born liar who has committed many acts of marriage fraud. Elliot was assigned to Nameless when it was discovered that he was seducing a female soldier who was romantically involved with his superior in the Gallian Militia.
Elliot has the appearance of a polite and civil gentleman, which helps him to deceive his victims. He doesn't feel even a shred of guilt for scamming people, and it is said that he has seduced hundreds of women. The only people Elliot cannot bring himself to lie to are children. Despite his obvious skill and history as a smooth talker, Elliot was unable to seduce a single female squadmate while in Nameless.
When Elliot was still in his teens, he was truly in love with a woman whom he intended to marry. Her parents refused to allow their marriage, however, and tore the young lovers apart. The trauma and emotional pain inflicted on Elliot by this incident left him unable to genuinely love another human being ever again.
After Nameless was disbanded, Elliot didn't seem very troubled by the loss of his citizenship, as he would be able to make a living wherever women could be found. He still hasn't gotten over his first love, however, and remains single to this day.
