Elijah is an exceptionally tall male, standing at an approximate height of between 6'0" and 6'2" with a rather skinny build. His lack of a muscular build and the thinness of his body is exaggerated by his height; he almost looks like you could pick him up and snap him clean in half. If it wasn't for the werewolf in him, he would never survive in a real fight.

Werewolves are known for caring little about their appearance, and this fits Elijah. But the fact of the matter is that he never has. With a generally scruffy look, it's easy to assume that Elijah doesn't fix himself up to please others. He couldn't care less. His hair, long and chocolate brown in colour, is only somewhat styled with a fringe hanging over the majority of his forehead. Mostly left unwashed, you might think he simply rolls out of bed like this. He has a pair of deep brown eyes to match, and an olive complexion. Overall, aside from his inability to make an effort with regards to his appearance, Elijah is still what some people might consider an attractive guy.

His wardrobe consists mainly of loose fitting clothing, with the general attitude of "if it doesn't stink, put it on." Plain t-shirts, long vests, cardigans, skinny jeans, sneakers, etc. He has a somewhat modern style but most of his clothes look ragged and old, like he's been wearing them over and over for the past decade (which isn't actually the case).

With regards to Elijah's demeanour, he always seems heavily fatigued or stressed; like he has the weight of the entire world pressing down on his shoulders or a million different thoughts all fighting for a place at the forefront of his mind, and it's taking its toll on him with each day that passes.

โœง Kind โœฆ Territorial โœฆ Emotional โœฆ Unsociable โœฆ Mature โœง

Throughout his life, Elijah has always been thought of as a kind, somewhat respectable person. Although he always found himself in bad company, he was the voice of reason amongst his friends and displayed an unwillingness to fall into the same type of traps that they always did. They smoked, they drank, they fought; Elijah did none of these things, instead he spent his time getting others back on their feet when they fell. He was always generous with his time and affection, a trait which has stuck with him to this day. Even as a child, he was considered mature before his time. He just grew up with the wrong people.

A lot of werewolf traits have taken over his personality since he was turned. For example, instead of being the level-headed guy he once was, he's now incredibly emotional and finds that he cannot control the way in which he displays his feelings. He gets angry, placing himself and others in rather harmful situations when his rage spikes. He's also a lot easier to emotionally harm, finding himself quick to get offended by the silliest comments. It's like he feels wary of others and subsequently wary of the meaning behind their words.

Being part wolf, Elijah is now very territorial. He becomes possessive over people and objects alike; with humans, he puts his claim on those with whom he spends a considerable amount of time. He can become aggressive towards other people when they go near his family or friends, or even his personal possessions such as clothes, food, or even useless trinkets, and this ties into the previously stated fact that negative emotions take control of him and cause him to place himself in harmful situations, such as fighting, as well as lacking trust in the people around him.

Elijah suffers quite badly from anxiety. He always has, finding himself constantly riddled with paranoid, unreasonable thoughts that chew away at his mind. As a child he would suffer frequently from panic attacks but they aren't so bad nowadays. While he is kind and decently polite towards the people he meets, he also seems to distance himself from them, unwilling to communicate for long periods or share even the most basic information. He's surprisingly unsociable, despite wolves being the opposite by nature. However, he does retain a lot of wolf-like curiosity. It's also worth noting that while he doesn't find it easy to socialise with new people, he is still a nice person and tries to show this as much as possible, showing great consideration for other people's feelings.

Elijah grew up in England for the larger majority of his life, only moving to America shortly after his mother remarried. He was around 14 at the time. He lived alone with his mother from the ages of 5-14 (his father had left when he was 5 for some reason he can never care to remember). They owned a crappy little council flat, located in your typical bad neighbourhood. So, from a very young age, Elijah was exposed to the sorts of things that would scar normal children for life. His mother was quite the social butterfly and as such they had many people going in and out of their flat all day, every day. Some of them were harmless, others less so, and to this day he can never figure out why they kept coming. He doesn't like to give it too much thought.

His mother remarried when he was just 14. He doesn't know how it happened or even why, but he accepted it nonetheless. The two of them moved willingly with the new husband to his home in New York; the location in which he was turned. Much to his relief, he didn't find it difficult to bond with his new step father, Christopher Duke, and felt immediately connected to his older sister, a 17-year-old (at the time) Alissa Duke. Currently he is 17 years of age and his step sister, Alissa, is 19. The two are still quite close.

Though he cannot remember much about the night he was bitten, he can vaguely remember sharing the company of his sister and a few of their mutual friends, on one of your average nights out. He recalls being thrown against a wall at some point but as a result knocked his head hard enough to send him unconscious. Whether anyone else was bitten remains a mystery to him. He does, however, remember that for a while he thought he was going insane. His emotions began fluctuating, he felt slightly more confident and his state of being became more physically enhanced than before.

The situation was explained to him by a man stating he owed his allegiance to Praetor Lupus, who then told him he needed to be taken to the Praetor House in order to receive basic training in controlling himself. There they began attempting to socialise him into new packs, but not all of them worked out. He was slowly becoming more and more withdrawn, and they were losing hope in his ability to act as a functioning member of society. Until, of course, the Shadowhunters Academy came into existence.



So begins...
