Elias is a Jewish battle bonesetter. Unlike most other grogs, he is more brainy than brawny. He also cooks in the field, and tries to cook as cosher(ly?) as the circumstances permit. He hails from a Barcelona Jewish family. He has been recruited on one of Marie's adventures and accepted this position because he likes the idea of getting a longevity salve some day. He is cautious and humble because he doesn't want to upset anybody. He was not too happy about learning to use a weapon, but he didn't dare to say anything.
He has black curly hair and an oiled black beard. He is rather tanned and his eyes are large and understanding. His nose is crooked. He hasn't received official Custos status yet, because he has only been with the covenant for about a year – and only recently was the anti-semitic prejudice amongst the grogs overcome.
Using Elias: Elias is not much of a fighter, so he avoids melee. In battle, he uses his sling (like David vs Goliath) from a "safe" distance (sling stones are not blocked by magic resistance or Herbam anti-missile spells, plus a sling has a good range) to create a diversion that a magus can exploit. He also supports the others with his healing (which can of course be assisted with magic) and cooking. His premonitions help Magi avoid traps. He can also give advice on Jewish culture and serve as a copyist or a teacher if things get quiet.
