Elliot grew up as a farmhand in Kansas, he absolutely loved it too. He was raised as an only child by his single father, James Castelo.
One day, after a long day of work, he asked his father, "Whatever happened to Mama?"
He will always remember his fathers words, "Sometimes God takes the one's we love. Sometimes, he let's them stay. And sometime's, the people who give us the greatest things, have to go early."
All he could do was smile. He knew that whether or not his mother was there in person, he knew that she would always be there with him in spirit.
Elliot grew up being taught that family was the most important thing to have, and that family could be anyone, anywhere in the world. As long as you love them, no matter what they do, they're family.
He and his father fell on hard times when Elliot turned 19. His father was going to have to sell their farm. As a last stitch effort, Elliot joined the Navy, and sent every last scrap of a paycheck he got to his father back home.
Elliot loved the military, but one late night, after an intense excercise, the Captian of Fort Worth Naval base pulled him aside, to tell him that his father had passed.
"The police told us that it was a peaceful passing. He was just old, and stressed. I'm sorry son. If there's anything we can do, let me know."
A few years later, the outbreak happened in South Zagoria, and the Navy was in a panic.
Elliot had managed to work his way up to Chief Petty Officer by this time, and was commissioned to transport the Marines to the country.
The trip across the Atlantic was as calm as could be, and with all the time it took, he befriended a certain Marine, a woman named Elle Nisbet.
Not the prettiest name, but to him, she was the most beautiful woman he'd ever met.
She was one of the first waves of Marines to be sent to South Zagoria, and everyone on the ship knew what happened to the first wave...
Not being able to take a loss like that, he decided to sneak off the ship with the last wave of Marines. They all understood, and nobody ratted him out.
When they arrived, they went their seperate ways.
Elliot still doesn't know what happened to the Marines he left with, nor the ship full of brothers and sisters he left behind.
Now he's trying to search for Elle, to either find and love her, or put her spirit to rest...
