FINAL FANTASY II :: CHARACTERS

PRONUNCIATION: i-LE-nuh
ORIGINAL JAPANESE NAME: Unknown
ORIGINS NAME: Elena
DAWN OF SOULS NAME: Elina
ANNIVERSARY EDITION NAME: Elina

    Elina was the wife of the late Dragoon, Phillip, a friend of Ricard Highwind and the mother of Kain. After the Palamecian Empire invaded the island of Deist and wiped out the Dragoons and their Wyverns, Elina and Kain stayed behind in Castle Deist to care for the last surviving Wyvern. Unfortunately, she did not possess a Dragoon's Pendant and could not speak the Wyvern's language. When Firion and his allies arrived at Castle Deist on the orders of the King of Fynn, Elina urged them to search Deist Cavern for a Pendant so they could communicate with the Wyvern. The heroes found a Pendant on the corpse of a fallen Dragoon and brought it back to the Castle. The ailing Wyvern gave the heroes the last hope for its race, the final remaining Wyvern Egg, which needed to be submerged in the waters of the Life Spring at the bottom of Deist Cavern. Elina and Kain continued to care for the Wyvern until it sighed its last breath shortly after Firion and his friends accomplished their task. They stayed at Castle Deist until the heroes returned to inform her of Ricard's death at the hands of the reborn Emperor Mateus. She wished to thank the heroes for their help and bestowed upon them the greatest treasure of the Dragoons, the mighty sword Excalibur. They left Castle Deist and journeyed to Fynn where they hoped to build a new life and Kain could train to be a fine Dragoon knight.
