Red Magic Berserker Adept
She uses a bow and her claws. She is a predator out on the plains and those skills cross over well into Shadowrunning.
She has no reservations about transforming or letting people know she is a shifter.
Elaine doesn't care for metahuman agendas. She is a warrior and a protector. She will protect anyone who is innocent regardless of their faction, metatype, or personal views.
Elaine has a taste for meat. The redder and the more raw the better. Her guilty pleasure is metahuman flesh, as such she often hangs out where infected tend to congregate.
Elaine's pelt is promised to Bellerophon upon her death. He'd offer a reward for whoever returns it to him.

Elaine was Resubmitted after the Éclaire la Nuit run.
We need friends in this city.
We also need more skills. You gotta learn to interface with society, and Elaine needs to get better at it.
The Way of Unified Mana is something Solarian told us we need to get, but never took time to learn. Basic skills and Metamagics are on the list first, though.
Equipment of Note
Custom Compound Bow
Elaine carries a customized Junxing M120 Elite Compound Bow. It is a special issue weapon created on contract by Wuxing. This is the standard combat bow used by the Azania Special Forces.
Vault of Ages
Elaine has a Vault of Ages that Bellerophon made her in the form of a leather quiver. It's R3, and was made by an Enchanter of Magic 6.
"Every scar I have makes me who I am."
Elaine was once matriarch of her pride. Her mate had died several years before and through her awakened abilities she claimed the mantle of leadership. Long had she been a terror among the plains of northern Azania. A chance encounter with Shadowrunners attempting to poach lion pelts caused her to reveal her secret, and she could no longer hide her abilities. She offered herself to Azania in exchange for the safety of her pride. She served with distinction and pride in the Azania Special Forces becoming a legendary fighter. Her devotion to Azania was unmatched. So long as they provided protection for her pride she would give them her service. This earned her a famous reputation for protecting the downtrodden, and the weak. She is a kind matriarch to her friends and people. But she is death to her enemies.
After many years she desired to travel. Her pride was safe under Azania's protection and she had the freedom to do as she pleased. Leaving the Army she set out West. She started in America, settling down in Seattle for now. She wants to test the waters. She moved from the open plains of Azania, to the steel caverns and concrete jungles of Seattle.

Real - Azania
Her metahuman form is an Elf, with some changes. As a lion she keeps certain features even in that form. Instead of knife ears she has furry lion ones on her head. She has pronounced claws on her hands and feet. She is very muscular for her form. Her teeth are sharp and very much lion-like. Her eyes have regular iris's, but they almost glow as deep golden pools. Her distinctly silver hair has a lot of volume and is very long.
Elaine has numerous tribal tattoos in her metahuman form. They are across her back, upper and lower arms, and upper thighs.
Elaine has many. Nearly every single one is from some sort of combat. Claw marks, bullet holes, sword cuts. Every one left a mark, and every one has a story.
Elaine has none, but Bellerophon has given her ideas for some in the future.
Casually Elaine wears boots, loose pants, and almost always has her favorite Cape Town Stormers hoodie.
In armor Elaine wears a white and red knee length high collar coat with loose pants and boots. Her FBA is distinct as it's a design similar to what is found in her homeland. She wears a Voidblack cloak as well.
Her Leonine features in metahuman form are her ears, pronounced canines and pointed teeth, and her natural claws. They can't be mistaken for bioware claws either.
In her real form she is a giant silver lion. The coloration is owing to her awakened abilities. She stands 5 feet tall at her shoulders, with an overall body length of 100 inches counting her tail. She weighs 600 pounds. She is slightly larger than the biggest big male lions of her subspecies.
A little silver lion.
