Elaina lived the humble life of a seamstress in the village of Byroden. At some point she encountered an elven diplomat named Syldor Vessar. The details and length of their relationship are unknown, but Syldor eventually left her to return to Syngorn. Elaina later gave birth to half-elven twins and named them Vax'ildan and Vex'ahlia.
The three of them lived happily together until Syldor learned of the twins' existence. When they were ten years old, Vex and Vax were taken to Syngorn to live with their father, leaving their mother behind.
Several years later, after running away from Syngorn, the twins returned to Byroden only to discover the entire village had been burnt to the ground by a dragon. They learned from the survivors that their mother had died during the attack.
Years later, Elaina's death would be avenged when her children marched with their comrades of Vox Machina and the armed forces they amassed to take down the Cinder King. Her son, Vax'ildan, would personally strike down the monstrous dragon.
"The Chapter Closes" (1x115) Edit
When the Raven Queen claimed Vax's soul, it was Elaina who greeted her son in the afterlife, hugging him and telling him how proud she was.
