Abandoned as a child at the Velusian Sanctuary (the largest temple devoted
to Bahamut on the continent), Elim has had a rough past. His prophetic
dreams of fire and destruction marked him as "possessed by demons".
The clerics of the temple put him through indescribable torture in order
to drive the demons out. To this day, those events have scarred Elim with
a constant stutter when he speaks. He refuses to mention anything of his
exorcism. Regardless, Elim has become beloved in the temple, and although
he is not yet a fully-fledged cleric, his divine channeling abilities
have impressed even the Bishop.
