Elina was born in Saint Petersburg in April 1994 for Finnish mother (Karoliina) and Russian father (Vladislav). They moved to Finland 2006, when she was 12 years old and she never finished her school. At that time she didn't really speak English yet and Finnish was even harder for her. She did get better with English and eventually learned enough Finnish also and was able to have some odd jobs here and there.
She was always restless and didn't seem to care much about her surroundings or other people, unless they were somehow useful for her for what ever reason she might've had at that point. With that attitude and personal traits she often ended up having certain type of friends and was usually on the wrong side of law. She spent her time mostly with her friends, even though she didn't really considered them as a friends in traditional way... for her they were just 'people'. Some more useful than others but she stayed with them since they offered her place to call home, for now. That was pretty much her life during the years and she somehow managed to stay out of prison. For that she can mostly thank her friends, keeping her hidden from the law.
She moved to Nyheim in the beginning of 2020 as some of her friends wanted to set up new life up there, and well she didn't have anything left in Finland anyway, other than keeping running from law. Luckily she wasn't in that deep of a trouble that she wouldn't be able to leave the country, so she was able to cross the border without problems. Soon she met this man Aaron and somehow they seemed to really fit together from the start and it became very dark very soon.
