: Elira was born and raised in a ghetto in Albania that might have even made Line County seem like an upgrade. She had hard working parents and a very protective older sister, but life was still rough, each day a struggle just to keep food on the table and wood in the fireplace. Very, very slowly, her family had managed to save up enough money to move out of the ghetto and into a cheap, but still pretty decent part of the city's suburbs - but then all hell broke loose.
Elira was in her mid-teens when the civil war started, a few months before it was officially declared. Different rebel groups started coordinating together against the corrupt government, and nowhere was the movement stronger than in the ghettos, where the oppression and injustice had always been at its worse. Elira's parents got caught up in it, their patriotism leading them to join the rebel cause and put their savings towards purchasing weapons and other gear instead of the home that they'd always dreamed of.
Her older sister, Venera, didn't take it too well. She was firmly against the idea and went off to try to regain the money that their parents had wasted (at least according to her) by working the streets as a lady of the night. Elira was caught somewhere in between, but eventually ended up joining the rebellion alongside her parents once she was sixteen, believing that they were fighting for the greater good.
Four years went by. Elira's father took a hail of bullets to the chest during a firefight with the military, her mother was captured and executed by a firing squad after being extensively tortured and interrogated. Elira lost her sister as well after Venera had battled the HIV that she'd contracted for a year and a half. Having nothing else left to live for, she put all of her anger and focus into the war effort, playing a big role in the rebels' victory where they finally overthrew the higher powers.
She thought that things would finally get better after that, and they did, but only for a short time. It wasn't long before the seeds of corruption germinated and grew once again, stronger than before just like weeds. Only this time, the new leaders had learned from the mistakes of the former ones and operated through more subtle means. Meanwhile, the nation was shattered and the population too exhausted to engage in another war, so things went back to how they'd always been before getting even worse.
Former members of the rebellion broke up into smaller gangs, each of them vying for survival, trying to grab a bigger piece of the meager riches and resources leftover than all the others. Elira herself was too tired and disillusioned to look for another cause, so she did the same as many others, joining one of the gangs on top of offering her services up as a mercenary. Having had more success than most, she built up quite a name for herself - perhaps too much of a name, since she ended up on the police's most wanted list as well as several hit lists on top of it.
When the heat became unbearable, Elira liquidated all of her belongings and put most of her savings towards smuggling herself out of the country. She wanted to go somewhere else, somewhere that she'd be able to have a fresh start, and this time she planned on doing it right so that she ended up at the top and would never have to fear anyone again.Sexual Preference
