Eliana’s relationship with her family is complicated. She gets along with her older half brother, Varojin, the best. Because Eliana disagrees with most of her father’s governing choices, she’s generally at odds with Kaius and a significant portion of the imperial council.

Eliana has a large social circle thanks to her position at court, but Cressida and Astrea are her best friends and the people she trusts with everything. She’s also incredibly close with her personal guard, Nicos.

Eliana Auris is a Sparkcaster. These are mages who control both fire and lightning. She’s been taking lessons since she was a small child and knows how to defend herself. When she’s especially angry, electricity sometimes sparks around her fingertips.
