Eli Sykes is a tragic hero figure who has lead the Elysian City Peace Keepers through all manners of calamity that's befallen the city and its inhabitants over the years, but manages to keep an can-do attitude, working toward peaceful ends to every conflict. His laid back and happy attitude has given many the wrong impression about him, his antagonists claiming him to be a lazy and careless individual, unfit to be leading the city's combined Peace Keepers. Far from the truth, as his Keeper subordinates will be the first to state his case of not only his tireless dedication to his work, but as a fearless and competent leader, on and off the battlefield.

Growing up a lone child with just his mother, Valerie, in the poorer side of Vanir. When he was still little more than a toddler, his father, a modest shop keeper was killed in a brazen mid-day robbery. Little Eli was old enough and wise enough to be distraught that his father was taken away from him by the criminal elements of the world. And perhaps that's where the spark started. In order to see that he would do what he could to prevent such events ever happening to anyone again, he begged his mother into letting him join the Academy. He was then mentored by a Peace Keeper named Sierra Braum who taught him the value of chivalry and the law. From then, the young mouse tutored under the educated Daruni mentor throughout his Academy days and on into his days as an official Peace Keeper in the low ranks of a Vanir Precinct.
When the Rephan Xantha approached Elysia to aid in the future defense against the immediate threats of invasion, they made demands to be met before they would sign an alliance. Among them was attaching a symbiotic Nxla to the then Duke Wilde Ganner, which the Senate objected vehemently. Eli Sykes, fearing trouble to extend further or the mayoress volunteering herself, he instead sacrificed himself to their demands. Being the chief officer, Lady Hel was satisfied and the mouse was soon after merged with the Nxla.
