Elena Jeremy is the daughter of Governor Bernard Jeremy and the girlfriend of King Gerard Aurelac of Maar Sul. She was one of the targets of an assassination attempt by the Shadow after Gerard's kidnapping but survived, and briefly ruled Maar Sul until Gerard returned to the capital.
Elana was born in Hellespont as Governor Bernard Jeremy's daughter. She grew up in the House of Jeremy in a fine neighbourhood and got acquainted with many nobles thanks to her father's connections. At some point she and Gerard Aurelac met and fell in love.
A Crimson DawnEdit
- "I'm not with Elena because she's a n--um, because she's dark. I like her because she's smart, she's funny, and she's built like a brick shithouse."
- —Gerard Aurelac to Scuns
After the Proninist Party had been driven out of Maar Sul City, an impromptu ball was being held in the Citadel to celebrate the impending arrival of the Grand Alliance, Gerard's new allies. The Scunnish regiment led by Titaniel Focker were the first to arrive, as they'd been told there was an open bar. As soon as the Scuns noticed Elena with Gerard, they began accusing Gerard of dating what they called a n*****.
Despite Gerard's pleas for the Scuns to stop, the Scuns continued mocking Elena and even Bernard until the Maar Sulais herald introduced the king of the fackin' jungle, also known as a lion, which promptly ate four Scuns. The ball continued as normal, and Elena stayed by Gerard's side as a silent companion. A group of Nightstalkers attacked the ball but quickly retreated when SAVAGE officers showed up. Elena and most of the guests were not harmed during the surprise attack.
Tears of the SunEdit
- "A leader has to be hard, to make the decisions that need to be made. If you get a reputation for being soft on treason, you're inviting it to occur regularly."
- —Ademar Wisteria to Elena
A few days passed, and Gerard began acting strangely. Although the new mannerisms were subtle, Elena had known Gerard long enough that she began suspecting that something wasn't right. When she heard that Gerard had called for Ademar Wisteria and Siobrach Wisteria to a meeting in the early hours of morning, she called for Jeane Ormond, William Blackmore and the rest of SAVAGE-ED and asked them to accompany her to the throne room.
Elena's intuition turned out to be correct as they caught Gerard about to kill Ademar and Siobrach. Gerard shapeshifted into the Shadow, revealing himself as an impostor who had replaced the real Gerard after the Maar Sulais ball. The Shadow tried to murder Elena, but William Blackmore heroically sacrificed himself by intercepting the projectile which had been aimed at Elena's heart. Jeane Ormond acted quickly in the ensuing chaos and destroyed the Shadow. She also deduced that the Shadow was nothing but a clone and that the Shadow's master Xerathas d'Zarnagon had to have kidnapped Gerard.
A meeting between Ademar Wisteria and several of the leading figures of the Maar Sulais government was hastily convened. Ademar provided a quick speech about what had happened to Gerard, and some nobles began panicking over the issue. One noble even suggested that Ademar become a new king because there was little hope to recover Gerard from Xerathas alive. Elena hesitated when the nobles confronted her about the matter, but Jeane acted quickly and slew the noble who had said such treasonous things.
Elena was quite shocked to witness so many deaths in such a short period of time, but Ademar coldly explained that a leader had to be hard to make the decisions that need to be made in times of unrest. While Gerard was gone, Ademar would act as regent of Maar Sul, and Jeane would lead a search party for the missing king.
