"I'll make the most of it, I'll stir the people"
―Elena[src]

Elena is a woman that was raised and worked in Russia during the Russian era. Since she was little, Elena and her friend Urusei Teppannov were indoctrinated to believe in and began to work as an officer for Vladimir Putin. After learning of the suicide of a child-soldier named Irina, who had also worked for Putin, Elena was unable to follow her superior any longer and decided to undermine his regime. As she escaped from the authorities, she was pursued by an assassin who, unbeknownst to her, was her old childhood friend.

HistorEdit

Early CareerEdit

"My past was the same as those children, but I didn't turn my eyes from my fate"
―Elena[src]

Growing up in a Russian orphanage, Elena formed a friendship with a Japanese boy there, Urusei Teppannov,[1] and the two would often listen to her radio together despite the little girl being unable to understand the words to the music.[2] Becoming indoctrinated to support and idolize Vladimir Putin the two resolved to join his service.[3] After becoming adults the two went their separate ways;[4] as Teppannov became a hitman, Elena became an officer under Putin.

Theresheis

As an officer, Elena became very close with Putin and began to build a deep affection for him.[5] As a result of this affection, although constantly promising herself she would escape from her work one day the officer would stay on in order to be with her commanding officer.[6] She also at some point was charged with overseeing the child-soldiers being raised to fight for their country;[7] during this time she began to know Irina well, making several observations on her as well as the boy she often worked with and the dog that she played with.[8] Elena also, as a result of her duties, began taking drugs in order to be happier than was possible in her current circumstances.[9]

At some point, she was present when some of the children were together, smiling as she oversaw their knifeplay.[10] She also took the music that she heard on the radio and broadcasted it for the children to listen to, finding that they enjoyed the Vocaloid as much as she did.[11] Later on when Irina rampaged after the death of her dog, shot her comrades, and committed suicide, Elena witnessed the young girl smiling as she put the gun to her temple and pulled the trigger. Afterwards, the event left the Russian officer greatly shaken.[12]

Part 3Edit

"Until my life burns out I'll spread it around!"
―Elena[src]

Over time, Elena continued to see Irina's smile in her moment of suicide;[13] as a result she became fixated on the tragedy that had occurred and was unable to suppress her moral outrage at the abuses perpetrated by Putin.[14] As a result, she decided to undermine the regime by exposing the child-soldiers and Irina's suicide to the public.[15] Over time she constructed three spam files,[16] each dividing the story up between its three major players--Irina, her traitor comrade, and her beloved dog;[17] these spam files were full of all the children's memories constructed by her own observations of the three.[18]

Planning to force the story into everyone's computers,[19] she began working late into the night on one occasion to upload and broadcast the spam files on the internet.[20] Unable to sleep despite her tiredness,[21] Elena began consuming wine and cigarettes as she worked and listened to music on a record player. Eventually she fell asleep, but continued to work until the data was successfully uploaded to the web. At some later point, Urusei Teppannov burst into her room with a pistol in hand.[22] Escaping from the marksman, Elena fled the country and began evading him on multiple occasions, as Teppannov sought to arrest the former Soviet officer.[23]

Trip 3

On one occasion she changed her appearance,[24] dying her hair blonde and tanning her skin, as she went to relax for a short time in a tropical country. Tucking a gun into her bikini top, she visited the beach in her bathing suit and sipped a glass of iced tea while leisurely working on her laptop.[25] Out of the corner of her eye, she spotted Teppannov watching her expressionlessly from behind her on the beach.[26] As he got close, she abandoned the laptop and began to run, chased by the hitman.

Removing her gun,[27] she noted mentally that her pursuer was earlier than expected and made an effort to suppress her feelings for Putin as she ran.[28] Soon after, she was brought up short and stared in shock when Teppannov appeared in front of her, aiming his gun at her.[29] As she watched, a rose popped out of it.[30] The former officer then heard her pursuer ask her to escape with him, eventually nodding in response.[31] With her fate decided, Elena began preparing to set off with her former pursuer.[32]

Changing back into her original look, Elena sat at her computer on a train with the assassin and again worked on her laptop;[33] at some point, she realized that he was actually Urusei Teppannov, her old friend.[34] On a Russian site,[35] she began to play tunes by the Vocaloid Hatsune Miku.[36] As the Japanese music played from her computer, she saw Teppannov listening to the tune and crying. Wondering why that was, she dismissed it as being because of the lyrics, which he would be able to understand.[37] At some point, Teppannov left Elena alone with herself and she began reminiscing on her relationship with him and her past.[38] Becoming depressed and realizing it was impossible go back to her happier times,[39] she decided to commit suicide and took an overdose of drugs,[40] passing away shortly after.[41]

Part 4Edit

"Hoping for somebody makes you a fool"
―Teppannov after losing Elena[src]

After the officer's suicide, her childhood friend Teppannov was distraught and left alone for multiple years. The data files that she released, on the other hand, were uploaded into the Vocaloids Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, and Camui Gackpo, the latter coming into conflict with the former two as a result.[42] Miku would later see her story for herself and show it to Kagamine Len through the usage of an artificial world,[43] the story confusing the other Vocaloid.[44]

Meanwhile, wishing to die and turning completely against his former employer,[45] Teppannov decided to kill Vladimir Putin and, in the process, be killed by the man's guards in order to be with Elena. As Teppannov prepared to shoot Putin in the snow,[46] he imagined a future that he and Elena could have had together,[47] the latter dancing and smiling with him in an elegant ballroom.[48]

TraitsEdit

PersonalityEdit

"I'll control my feelings, making my heart sleep"
―Elena[src]

Elena was a serious and stubborn young woman in Russia,[49] who at times acted cold-hearted or overconfident.[50] Having grown up without a family in the orphanage,[51] she grew deeply attached to whoever was in her life, becoming close friends with Teppannov and coming to fall in love with Putin.[52] Due to this closeness, she was willing to put her faith in Putin to the utmost and pretended not to notice all the harm that his regime was doing to the people, the child-soldiers in particular.[53]

Leisure elena

Elena had a leisurely facade no matter what

Despite this, Elena had a natural moral center and was unable to look away from the tragedy occurring after Irina's suicide.[54] Seeing the girl smile at the end and obsessing over what it meant,[55] she was unable to forget her story and realized that she and Irina had both had the same beginning.[56] After realizing this, Elena became set on over-throwing the current regime.[57] As part of her rebellion, she became desirous of having the freedom to do as she liked,[58] and wished to give this freedom to others living in Russia.[59] She nonetheless continued to be plagued by her past loyalties to Putin and this dissonance made her lapse into depression.[60]

Once a kind and cheerful girl with an interest in Japanese music,[61] as an adult Elena would work to suppress her feelings and maintain a cool front no matter how afraid or conflicted she felt inside.[62] She also remained determined to carry out her work against the odds.[63] During her life, Elena indulged in many vices to deal with her stress, also using drugs to cope with her work as a Soviet officer.[64] She also became a heavy drinker and smoker as she did her new rebellious work,[65] although trying to quit for her own sake later on.[66] Eventually, these vices took control of her as she used drugs to escape reality by her own death.[67]

Skills and AbilitiesEdit

Elena was a competent and intelligent agent for Vladimir Putin and rose high through the ranks due to her skill as an officer.[68] In addition to this she had a notable skill with technology and was able to work with extremely complex data in order to create the spam file of Irina, as well as her dog and comrade.[69] She was also very skilled in her observations of the three individuals and had insight to many details about their lives, as she constructed all of their memories based on what she knew about the child-soldiers and their deaths.[70]

Aside from her technological savvy, Elena was a capable marksman and had a reasonable athletic ability that let her be able to evade all but the most skilled of hitmen after her betrayal of Russia. She could also effectively disguise her appearance if she desired to, and even was able to conceal a weapon in her own bust.[71] As an additional skill, she also knew how to type in her sleep.[72]

AppearanceEdit

"I changed my appearance, too, so I want to take a little breather"
―Elena[src]
LukaConcept
Elena was a tall and buxom young woman with blue eyes framed with narrow red glasses and pink hair swept up in a bun, save for her bangs and a long strand on one side. For her job she wore a Russian army officer's uniform of a dark green cap, skirt, and buttoned jacket with a green tie and white shirt underneath, long grey stockings, and black high-heels. Over her uniform she also wore a long white coat,[73] and had a Soviet tattoo on her leg as a symbol of her former allegiance.[74]

As a child in the orphanage, she wore a dark brown fur-lined coat, gloves, hat, and tan pants. On her coat was a white stripe, on which was pinned a badge.[75] After changing her appearance to escape the country, Elena presented herself with dark tanned skin and blonde hair. At the beach, she wore a small two-piece bikini and sunglasses.[76] During Teppannov's image of them together she was seen in an elegant red ballgown with her hair bound up.[77]

RelationshipsEdit

IrinaEdit

"Let it go around the net, that sad girl"
―Elena[src]

A child soldier whom Elena observed during her lifetime. Elena previously had watched over Irina as a soldier along with the other children impressed into Russia's service;[78] during this time she took careful observation of her life and personality, able to reconstruct her as a data file after her death.[79] Initially doing nothing to help the poor depressed girl, she became haunted by her suicide and began to feel a special connection to her in realizing that they both were the same,[80] with Irina having "escaped" while she was left miserable.[81]

Later on, after creating the spam file "Irina" to show her story to the world,[82] Elena viewed the data as something like her own child, calling herself a parent in turn and determined to keep spreading "Irina" everywhere.[83] Over time, however, her comparisons between herself and Irina continued to cause Elena depression, and she desired only to commit suicide and leave like the girl had.[84]

Irina's ComradeEdit

A child soldier whom Elena observed during his lifetime. Elena previously had watched over the boy as a soldier along with the other children impressed into Russia's service;[85] during this time she took careful observation of his life and personality, able to reconstruct him as a data file after his death.[86] After creating the spam file of the boy to show his story to the world,[87] Elena viewed the data as something like her own child, calling herself a parent in turn and determined to keep spreading her "boy" everywhere.[88]

The DogEdit

An animal whom Elena observed during his lifetime. Elena previously had watched over the dog as an extension of her observations of Irina and other children serving Russia;[89] during this time, she kept note of his habits and strengths as a dog.[90] Due to this she was able to reconstruct him as a data file after his death,[91] with additional intelligence added in recognition of the disaster that occurred because of his lack of sapience.[92] After creating the spam file of the dog to show his master's story to the world,[93] Elena viewed the data as something like her own child, calling herself a parent in turn and determined to keep spreading her "boy" everywhere.[94]

Urusei TeppannovEdit

"When I was a child he was by the radio too"
―Elena[src]

Elena's childhood friend. Becoming close companions with Teppannov as a child, Elena befriended him despite the boy's inability to speak Russian, as a native Japanese.[95] The two would often listen to the radio together in the orphanage and Elena looked back on those times happily.[96] After growing up, Elena was separated from and lost track of Teppannov;[97] later on, after trying to overthrow Putin's regime, the two opposed each other on multiple occasions as Elena lackadaisically resisted arrest from her former childhood friend,[98] not recognizing him for who he was.

After finally being confronted by Teppannov, Elena recognized him at last and,[99] given the offer to escape, Elena was completely willing to run away with Teppannov and escape from Putin.[100] Despite this, as she began to grow depressed over her betrayal and only wanted to escape reality more than her country, she committed suicide without thinking of how it would affect her old friend.[101]

PutinEdit

"I want to escape from feelings of him"
―Elena[src]

Elena's employer, whom she eventually would betray. Originally Elena served Putin faithfully as a result of her upbringing and was loyal to the cause in Russia,[102] despite the abuses that were carried out on the common people. After becoming conflicted in her duties and unable to bear the oppressive regime,[103] this conflict extended to her relationship with Putin and she found her old idolization of the Russian politician shattered,[104] although guilty over betraying him.[105]

Nonetheless, she in spite of herself continued thinking about him and maintained a faint hope that Putin would be the one to arrest her himself.[106] Feeling taken advantage of by him, she repressed those feelings and wished only to escape from them.[107] Over time, however, she was unable to escape from her love for him and grew depressed over her betrayal,[108] as well as homesick.[109] Although wanting everything to end happily, she eventually committed suicide for Putin's sake.[110]

Hatsune MikuEdit

"And it seems like those children liked it too, that thing called Vocaloid."
―Elena[src]

A Vocaloid that Elena enjoyed listening to. Liking the music even though the lyrics were in Japanese,[111] Elena listened to Miku's music often and also shared it with the children she watched over in Russia.[112] She would continue to listen to it even when she was on the run,[113] broadcasting the music from her laptop.[114]
