Powers and Abilities
To be added...
Long before the story begins, Elyon linked with the Dragon Half Odjn and became the first Chosen to try to reach the surface. He defeated the Regents and even scarred their leader Deamoned in their battle.
When he finally reached the gate to the surface, Elyon began to question whether his actions were truly his or whether he was simply being controlled by the Dragon Odjn. He rejected Odjn and instead chose to be the leader of the Regents so he may see judge other Chosen and see if his actions were truly his or the Dragon's will. Many Chosen came after and all of them ultimately failed, in time Elyon's own health began to deteriorate and knowing his time was coming to end and questioning his choice he sets in motion a plan to finally test whether he made the right choice when rejected the Dragons and returning to the surface.
He spearheaded the creation of Nina in hopes of propelling the vision that "Man would gain Wings, and return to the Sky." Elyon also set in motion the events of the game further by linking Ryu to Odjn, to see if someone not naturally Chosen with a 1/4th D-Ratio could actually accomplish what the true Chosen had all failed to do.
He has the Regents watch over Ryu and his companions struggles and finally faces off with him when Ryu beats the odds and defeats the Regents. Though defeated, Elyon is happy to see Ryu succeed where his own mistrust had failed his journey, and his defeat allows the party to finally reach the final gate where an old friend lay in wait.
