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 to earn cash. Around the same time, Elena got interested in Duel Monsters. Carlos gifted Elena her first Pack of Cards for her 10th birthday, the pack including Cyber Harpy Lady, who became her best card. Between the ages of 10 and 15, Elena worked on making a Deck based off the Harpie Ladies and added in some supporting WIND-Attribute cards.
Elena appears in the second chapter introducing herself to Kylie.
In the future, Elena marries Chazz and they have a one child together, a daughter name Ayla. Sadly, Elena passes away shortly after giving birth to Ayla due to complications leaving Chazz a single father.
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 uses a "Harpie" Deck, but much like her friend Kylie Reynolds, does not follow one plan. Most of her plan is used to summon as many "Harpie Lady" monsters as she can to power up her "Harpie's Pet Dragon".
- Elena was inspired off Arina Zharkov from Above the Winter Moonlight's story, Shadow Rise, belonging to EndlessNight025.
- Elena speaks with a Spanish accent and often curses in Spanish.
