Elena is a very spiritual person. She sees her powers as a gift from God to do good in his name and acts accordingly. She also sees the work that SHEILD does as important because they take care of the things that would otherwise harm individuals who are unable to defend themselves.

Elena is honest, almost to a fault. She views lies as a personal afront, even amongst her allies, and rarely sees the benefit of outright deception of the truth. This is a razors edge with her work in SHIELD that relies on deception, but she justifies it so long as the goals and the means are good. She trusts hard and holds grudges against those who break their word.

Once someone has become her friend or earned her trust, there is almost no lengths she wont go to for them. She holds these people close and will go out of her way for their benefit, short of matters that go directly against her faith.

Force Generation:
Due to the nature of moving at increased speeds, Elena can throw a mean punch. She builds up force quickly and her body creates a kinetic field around the point of contact that protects her from the increased energy of impact. To her, a 200 mile an hour punch feels like a normal punch. Same as snapping back against a wall. Otherwise the act of moving would kill her when travelling at such inhuman speeds.

Elena came in contact with a substance that altered her and gave her the ability to move at incredible speeds (roughly 400 miles per hour). The caveot to this is that no matter how fast she goes or how far, she always returns to the exact spot of origin. Her body will attempt to move her along the safest possible route (for her), but it pays little concern for things that might be in her way, so travelling great distances is still largely hit or miss what she'll run into when yo- yoing back.

Elena grew up in Columbia and so she speaks her native Spanish, but she's picked up English as well from work with the museum and further with SHIELD.

Elena is a well trained marksman, specifically on long barrel, scoped, rifles. She spent a decade in a guerilla war against Cartel and has many hours of practical training. She can also use handguns with deadly accuracy.

Martial Artist:
Elena has a decade worth of dirty fighting and several years of martial arts defense training with SHIELD. She knows how to use her powers in a fight, as well, which gives her a practical edge in almost every physical engagement.

Elena has several thousand hours of Quinjet training, including practical application in the field. She might not be their best pilot, but she's good enough to rank out and class on them.

While it is not her favorite, Elena is still a spy, and as such has a great deal of training in spycraft. She can blend into a crowd, use disguises, and has a number of cover identities provided to her by SHIELD to use in the pursuit of her job.

Elena grew up in the streets of Columbia and honed this skill further as a guerilla fighter. She knows how to survive in an Urban jungle, but more over, she knows who to survive that jungle amongst the brutal monsters who occupy it. She can fight a war on the street, directly beneath the noses of the underworlds elite.

Membership in SHIELD has afforded Elena a great deal of benefits. This includes further training, both martial and with her powers, backup when she needs it, and access to their wide umbrella of resources.

Over the years fighting Cartel, Elena has amassed an armory of weapons that are all her own... Most of them are destroyed, of course, but a few have found their way into her personal stockpile. You can take the dog out of the fight, but you can't take the fight out of the dog.

Everything about Elena moves faster, including her blood. This includes passing deadly toxins faster, bleeding faster, and any number of dangerous side effects of blood moving through her body more rapidly than a normal persons.

Due to her increased speed, Elena burns calories at a rapid rate as well. She must consume more food than any normal person to counter burning through reserves and causing her blood sugar to drop to dangerous levels.

Elena doesn't trust easy and once someone has broken that trust it's hard for her to forgive them. Honesty is important to her... things don't have to be right, but they have to be right enough to tell the truth about it, in her eyes.
