Elena's father is a great African tribal leader, a well-educated man who holds a
PhD from a university in France. She is dearly loved by father as she is his only daughter.
Growing up in the harsh but nurturing savanna, Elena longed to be like her father, but her
friends only laughed at her dream. So, Elena spent most of her time in the wilderness,
communing with her animal friends. Her tribe had a long history of proud warriors, but
Elena detested fighting. In the hope that she would discover her fighting spirit, the
village elders entered her into the third World Warriors tournament. In order to make her
father proud, Elena trained in the Capoeira style, which emphasizes the use of the legs.
Despite her skill, she returned from the tournament hating fighting even more. The village
elders, seeing that the warrior's path is not hers, agree to allow her to attend school in
Japan. She met a new friend, Narumi, and made many others, but she never forgot her close
bond with nature.
