Elios has a sociopathic personality. He is capable of analyzing situations and people and altering his behavior accordingly. Towards Emma, he appears to be a very sweet, caring boyfriend. He patiently listens to her problems and offers advice and comfort when she needs it. To maintain a mature, understanding image, he obscures his jealousy with a charming smile. Overly protective, possessive, and controlling, Elios consistently feeds Emma toxic advice and once claimed he was willing to kill anyone he deemed a threat to her.[4] He resorts to violence to threaten others that harmed Emma and shows no remorse for his actions. He is physically strong, skilled in hand-to-hand combat, and employs weapons such as bats and knives. Though he can normally hide his reactions, he has certain telltale signs that give away his emotions. He tends to cover his mouth when he is uncomfortable, hide his hands when lying, and hold his neck when happy.[5] Due to a difficult past, he holds little value in caring about others that are of no importance to him.[6]

History[edit | edit source]

Young Elios 02.jpg

Elios grew up in a town surrounded by the sea.[5] As a child, Elios grew up taking care of his irresponsible mother. He would frequently get up early before school to make breakfast for himself and his mother, who struggled to wake up in time for work. Neglected as a child and lacking parental love, Elios would find himself envying other children as they spent time with their parents. He suppressed these emotions to avoid burdening his already flighty mother. During this time, he met Emma.[7]

Seeking affection from friends rather family, Elios learned to observe his high school peers and change his appearance, mannerisms, and preferences to fit in. Though he attempted to accommodate others, he overheard his friends scoffing at how he was a desperate pushover. During a class project, his friends took advantage of his diligence and refused to complete their portion of the assignment. Girls who were charmed by his personality and intelligence became offended and convinced Elios to report this to their teacher. Consequently, the other boys received poor grades and threw glue at his hair in retaliation. Following this incidence, Elios learned to value others less to avoid getting hurt.[8]
