History

Past

Elaine hailed from a wealthy family that owned the town she grew up in. Her life of prosperity came to and end when the Southern Confederation attacked their town, completely leveling it. Sometime after the Confederation moved on, Elaine searched her town for survivors, finding only one: a boy slightly younger than her who lost his memories from the trauma. To avoid falling into sorrow, Elaine put on a brave face and threw herself into caring for the boy she rescued. She takes him with her north to an old friend of her father, but is denied help and left on the streets. It was after this that she gave the boy she met a new name: Hank.

Elaine led Hank to Newfort City, where she organized other orphans to help them all survive as beggars. However, her operation garners attention, and a gang of adults come to break their crew up. As she orders her new friends to scatter, Hank brings all the men down on his own to protect her. Later, a Reverend of The Church - a religious school for young geniuses - appears before her. Impressed by Elaine's intelligence, he offers her a place at the school. She refuses at first, but changes her mind on the condition that Hank be allowed to live there with her. At the institute, Elaine proves herself to be cut above the rest, going on to graduate at the top of her class and strike up a friendship with Cain Withers, the son of the top runner for President. While at the school, she also begins hearing a strange sound emanating from a pendant given to her by the Reverend. After graduation, Elaine is exposed to a deposit of Somnium, from which Elaine hears a sound dubbed The Voice of God.

After graduating, Hank left to join the Army and Cain went back to his family. Though heartbroken that Hank was no longer at her side, she went on to become a Somnium researcher for The Church. After hearing that Hank was being deployed to fight, Elaine let the Reverend expose her to the largest known deposit of Somnium, which allows her to hear the Voice clearly enough to learn of a use for the ore. Using the knowledge gained from the exposure, Elaine petitions Cain's father, now President, to start a program to use the ore to create enhanced soldiers for the Army, experimenting on people supplied by the government. Her attempts end in failure and death, the only finding being a certain biological factor that allow people to survive the enhancement process. After numerous failures, a dying soldier with right factors for enhancements is brought before her, and the Voice confirms that he is the ideal candidate, but it turns out to be a dying Hank. Elaine initially resists the Voice's desire to be used on Hank, loving him too much to experiment on him. In the end, she decides that keeping Hank alive was more important, and successfully turned him into the first Incarnate. Despite her guilt over what she turned him into, Elaine was happy to have Hank with her as she began producing more Incarnate soldiers.

Near the end of the Civil War, Elaine speaks with Hank in private, asking if he remembers the vow they made as Incarnates. When he recites their vow, she asks if he regrets the power.
