Her mother was a kind woman, and a scholar who loved learning about myths and history, much like her parents before her. Yet Elissa never got the chance to meet her, for the woman died when she was born. Her father was a member of the Navy, and her older brother worked as a farmhand. Her father worked hard to provide for the family, and so did her older brother, until one day the two of them disappeared, leaving Elissa alone. Behind Your Name:
She was named after her mother, who had died when she was born. Her mother was named after the ancient Greek woman Dido, Queen of Carthage, who had also been known as Elissa. The name means My God is bountiful, God of Plenty.
Her middle name, Flora, comes from Roman mythology, and was the goddess of flowers.History:
Elissa's mother died before she was born, leaving her to grow up with her father and older brother Christian. She lived a happy life, with her father trying to provide for her to the best of his abilities, and her brother generally kept an eye on her, so she was never alone. When she was 5 years old, she was left home by herself one day, and she waited for her father and brother to come home. Yet they never came. It took two days before Elissa finally left her home and entered the streets. No one knew anything about her family, they just disappeared.
She met another young boy, one who took her under his wing and taught her how to survive on the streets of the town. His name was Trevor, and he helped to teach Elissa how to survive. He had some spare clothes that he loaned her, and she made the decision to cut her hair, and disguising herself as a young boy. She and Trevor worked hard, stealing from others and using the money to pay for food, water and shelter. She enjoyed her life, but when she turned 12, her life took another turn.
She and Trevor decided to start working as sailors on a ship that was looking for a crew. They joined up, and that life was good as well. They worked hard, and no one suspected that she was actually a girl. Their Captain was a kind man, and he taught them everything he knew about sailing, and Elissa looked up to him, he became like a father to her. Eventually, she told him the truth about her gender, and he did not mind, but told her to keep it a secret from the crew. As she aged, she and Trevor grew closer, and she eventually fell in love with him. However, when she was 16, the ship was attacked by pirates. They struck the ship, and Elissa was amazed at them. She got a look at their Captain, and noticed that something was familiar about him. It was her older brother, and Elissa tried to stop him, but it resulted in her get shot by him.
When she woke up, she was on the pirate ship. The Captain from her ship was there, and so was Trevor. They explained to her that they were joining the pirate crew in order to survive, and Elissa agreed. Her brother entered the room, and told her that their father had moved to the Caribbean, to work for the Navy there, and had abandoned him on his old naval vessel. He had turned to piracy to survive, and was amazed that she was still alive. For the next few years, she worked on his ship, and they sailed to the Caribbean, in hopes of finding their father.
They did run into him again, and it was because of this that kept her on the side of the pirates. Her father's ship appeared, and struck the pirate ship, and kept striking it. They boarded the vessel, and they went down fighting. Her father fought Christian, and she saw her father kill him. Soon, she saw everyone around her being struck down, and she eventually was brought aboard the naval vessel, for her hair had grown out and it was apparent that she was a woman. They dropped her off at the next dock, but right then and there she swore that she would get vengeance on him for what he had done, and she kept finding work as a sailor, joining up on any pirate ship she could think of. Hoping that she would get the chance to get revenge upon her father.
