Backstory

Elliot had what he would describe as a miserable childhood. His mother was neglectful and cruel to him, often telling him how much of an accident he was, and his father supposedly committed suicide the night he was conceived. When he was five years old, he began seeing a tall, dark person-like creature that started to stalk him. He was a lonely child until he turned 14 and met Emilie Laporte in his chemistry class, and immediately fell in love with her. After a few years, they ran away from their homes together, leaving for Lyon, where Emilie had an aunt they stayed with until they could afford a place of their own. He eventually proposed, and in 1987, they got married.

After a few years, Mortensen followed Emilie’s advice of becoming a detective, and it worked out; it was around this time that he met his future best friends; Simon and Frank Callahan. Suddenly, one day, Emilie was used as bait to lure Elliot into a trap that led to Emilie winding up horribly beaten and in a coma. However, after receiving a letter from her attacker, Elliot was able to track him down, meeting Malachy in his apartment. The makeout session that followed hadn't been Elliot's idea, and damn if he didn't feel terrible about it, but still he kept returning to the handsome actor-turned-criminal, even going as far as to cover whatever tracks and incriminating evidence he may've left behind. It was soon revealed that Emilie may wake, and, scared about hurting her, Elliot agreed to simply pull the plug when it was offered. He tried to return to Malachy after that, but couldn't find him.

That was when he got a letter. It was from Malachy, and it said that their whole "relationship" had been nothing more than a ploy to get Elliot to kill his wife himself. Mortensen was thrown into a deep state of self-loathing in which he vowed never to become close to anyone again, but a forced partner named Miles Quinlan, and later a man named Dr. Cheshire who looked almost identical to his wife, soon changed his mind.

His nose is quite straight, not having a noticeable bump at its tip. He has dark rings under his Zinnwaldite brown eyes, since he doesn't sleep very often. He has wrinkles at the outer corners of his eyes, his forehead, under-eyes, and down from his nostrils to the corners of his mouth. He's about 6'0" (1.83 m) and weighs around 147 lbs. (66.7 kg). He's not very muscular.

Personality

Elliot is an ISTJ. He displays himself to most people as a cold-hearted introvert, but on he inside, he's a very kind-hearted man, and nonetheless a total dork. He doesn't like to be the center of attention, and is usually better at taking orders than giving them, but he prefers to do things his own way most of the time. He lacks the ability to sympathize with others, but will try to for those he cares for. When he finds someone he trusts, he is very loyal to them. He tends to think realistically, becoming easily frustrated by people who think illogically or people who have their head in the clouds.

He sleepwalks, and usually can't dream, or finds himself plagued by insomnia. He typically wakes up unrested, either due to his sleepwalking or the fact that he wakes often (and briefly) through the night. He's afraid of the dark, and he tends to swear a lot.

Trivia

  • He is a sleepwalker, and most nights finds himself plagued by insomnia. Typically wakes up unrested due to awakening briefly and/or sleepwalking during the night, though he is for the most part unaware of both.
  • His favorite color is green. His least favorite color is hot pink.
  • His favorite animal is the bird, more specifically the cockatiel. His least favorite animal is the dog.
  • His alignment is true neutral, though he leans toward lawful neutral.
  • He has a mild form of social anxiety, but at the same time, strives to be a people-pleaser. He is in most cases turned off when people express love towards him, and will often reject and/or fight those who do.
  • When not able to simply walk to his destination (which he prefers), he drives his car, a gray 1986 Citroën CX. In the States, he drives a similar gray rental car.
  • The gun he uses as a detective is the SP 2022.
  • He smells of cigarettes and/or baking ingredients.
  • His favorite thing to bake is sugar cookies, though he always feels like he messes it up.
  • His worst fear is being trapped in a dark room. Because of this, he always sleeps with some sort of nightlight on near his face, and usually leaves it on throughout the day as well. He is also terrified of the afterlife (and therefore of dying), though he has no solid belief of what it is, or if there even is one.
  • He usually doesn't say much, but if allowed to speak without interruption, he has a tendency to go on long, rambling rants about subjects that he is passionate about. When allowed to rant like this, it becomes apparent just how unstable his train of thought is, as often he'll get caught on something (a word that reminds him of a different subject, for example) and will abruptly switch his focus onto whatever it is, rarely returning to further elaborate on the original subject. As a result, one may have to struggle to understand just what his point is when listening to him while he's impassioned.
  • His favorite song is Mack the Knife. His favorite music genre is alternative rock.
  • He could sing quite well if he wanted to, but he for some reason believes that he can't, and therefore decides to "spare the world the secondhand embarrassment" of listening to him try.
  • He likes being manhandled, and his biggest kink is bondage. He is turned off by delicacy in terms of love-making; he likes it rough.
  • His favorite card game is Old Maid.
  • His favorite holiday is Halloween.
  • He is an atheist, though he has Jewish heritage.
  • When nervous, he tends to bob his right knee and/or fiddle with his watch's clasp.
  • He is rarely ever truly disturbed by the sight of a corpse. He usually just pretends to care; deep down, he actually finds the sight of the end of mortality somewhat comforting. Blame it on his strange upbringing.
