-Distinguishing marks: She has freckles just under her eyes that she often tries to hide with makeup or sunglasses. Elena has two noticable scars: one on the right side of her face from eye level down to her collar bone (remnants of a shrapnel wound during the FFVII game timeline) and burn scar tissue on her upper left arm (a result of torturing at the hands of Kadaj after their confrontation in the crater during Advent Children).
-Build: Elena is slight and somewhat short, almost embarassingly flat chested and a little less curvacious than she would like.
-Voice: Elena has a very girly voice, with a tendancy to hit somewhat high pitches when upset or surprised. She squeaks a lot, usually unexpectedly and certainly not on purpose, and is almost always embarassed afterwards.
-Clothes: Her Turks suit when on duty, otherwise she prefers anything that's very girly in nature, such as skirts or pastel blouses. Anything to offset her boyish figure.
-General Appearance: Elena is young and she looks it. She tries her best to look professional and neat, hoping it will make people take her more seriously, but it just doesn't happen unless she's aiming a gun at them.

-Brief Personality: Elena is naive, impetuous and somewhat overeager, with a loose tongue that sometimes causes her to inadvertently reveal secret information. She takes her job much more seriously than Reno and Rude do, and also becomes quite frustrated with their casual attitudes. (Wikipedia) She has a terrible need to prove herself, and often feels terrible when her naivete ruins her chances.

-Brief Background: Elena's mother died shortly after she was born from complications during the pregnancy, something Elena knows isn't her fault but sometimes feels her father and sister blame her for though they've never said anything of the sort. Her father was a teacher at the Shin-Ra Military Academy (Wikipedia), and in his early years a master marksman. Elena worked hard to follow in his footsteps, but her attemps were thwarted early on when her older sister Irene began to show much more promise with much less work. Irene became a Turk while Elena was still in high school, known as Gun due to both her last name and amazing skills with firearms Elena knew she could never hope to equal. For a while she decided to persue a career in teaching like her father, but an incidental meeting with the Turks convinced her to try again to join the group (Before Crisis timeline, Wikipedia). Eventually she managed to claw her way up to being a Junior Turk, though she's careful never to reveal her relation to Irene, going instead by their mother's maiden name of Donovan. Originally she developed a crush on Tseng, the Turks' field leader, which led to more and more embarassing slip-ups and screw ups due to nerves. Currently she's put romantic interest and frivolity on a back burner and is focusing on bettering her fighting skills and marksmanship in the hopes of living up to the expectations she'd originally set for herself in her youth. She's become somewhat estranged from her father and sister and lives on her own by her own means.
