Elena is a junior member of the Turks who obtained her position as the newest recruit after Reno sustained injuries battling AVALANCHE in Midgar. Elena takes her work more seriously than Reno and Rude do and has shown to become frustrated with their laid-back attitudes. During Final Fantasy VII, Elena is captured with Yuffie by Don Corneo, and Cloud and the party temporarily team up with Reno and Rude to save her. Elena has also been shown to have a crush on Tseng, and temporarily holds Cloud and the party accountable when he is injured while investigating the Temple of the Ancients. This attraction is carried on in "Case of Shinra", where she appears with the other Turks, still working for Shinra and trying to locate Rufus. She appears briefly in Advent Children; while searching the Northern Crater, she and Tseng are captured and tortured by the Remnants until being rescued by Vincent. She later returns to help Cloud along with the other Turks, and witnesses Rufus' recovery from Geostigma. Elena served a minor role in Before Crisis as a young student resenting her sister for outperforming her; as such, she refused to become a Turk while her sister was employed. After working together with the player Turk to fight against the Ravens, Elena decides to become a Turk and surpass her sister. Elena is voiced by Megumi Toyoguchi in Japanese and Bettina Bush in English.
