Prior to the series

Elena was born in Brazil to Pedro and Júlia Santos as the youngest of seven siblings. Pedro is the CEO of a company in Brazil and is rarely home and Júlia is a famous model, and she too was rarely at home. She was often left to be watched over by nannies hired by her parents, though they never watched her.

When she was six-years-old, she was found by Carlos wheezing and having trouble to breath. After being rushed to the hospital by Carlos, it was revealed that she was severely dehydrated. Carlos then took her to Spain where while she was being cared by a friend's mother, he gave their parents the choice: give him guardian and parental rights over Elena or he'll tell the world what they did to their youngest child. In the end, his parents sent over the parental rights and that was the last time Carlos or Elena heard from their parents.

While Carlos was in school, Elena was cared by her brother's friend's mother, and she didn't mind one bit. After Carlos graduated with his major in Dueling History and Teaching, the two took a trip to Egypt where they saw the Great Pyramids and even the tablets of Pharaoh Atem. That was when Elena first got into Duel Monsters.

Between the ages of 10 and 12, the siblings moved to Japan were Carlos started working at the local university. Around her eleventh birthday, Elena learned of a "Create Your Own Archetype" was taking place. She decided to enter and made cards based off the Constellations, something she had been into since before they moved to Japan. In the end, Elena won the contest and her "Celestial Knights" were real.

At the age of 15, Elena applied to attend Duel Academy.

Trials of Darkness


As the youngest and only daughter of a family of seven, Elena didn't have the best relationship with her parents since they were rarely home. She had a good bond with her brother Aarón, since he was the closest to her in age, and of course Carlos who was the one that mainly took care of the two. After she got severely dehydrated when she was six, Carlos took her and moved to Spain where she was raised until she was around 10.


Elena duels with a "Celestial Knight" deck which is based off the Constellations. Her main strategy is to summon her ace, "Celestial Knight - Draco", by getting at least 5 Knights to the Graveyard. However, she always has a backup plan which revolves in summoning her second powerhouse, "Celestial Knight - Andromeda".
