Name: Eliot Nadel
Appearance: At exactly six feet two, Eliot's about average height. He has fairly long blue hair, mostly because he hates the barber's shop (He's worried about getting his ears chopped off.) He usually dresses in formal styles, usually wearing a tuxedo vest, white button up shirt, reddish-violet paisley tie, charcoal slacks, and black dress shoes, and his skin is the color of hot chocolate mix. He always wears a pair of pink heart-shaped sunglasses over his green eyes, and he has uncommonly large blue eyebrows. He also has a pair of black fake kitty ears on his head that won't come off.
Personality: Eliot is a hedonist to the core. He loves women (Whom he shamelessly flirts with), money (Which he spends lavishly), and sour foods (Which he eats little but.) However, he can be genuinely nice, and even selfless at times. He is extremely spirited and outgoing too, and likes to make friends with everyone. He also loves kittens, and is truly dedicated to spreading love throughout the world.
History: Eliot saw a lot of his father's back, as his father was a serious businessman working on serious business. His father often left him with a flying baby sitter that was very strict, and taught him to be a gentleman and swordfight. Whenever he stepped out of line, she would scream in his ears and throw a book at him. This led to him having a high tolerance for pain, and being very chivalrous and polite.
Eventually, at the age of six, his father sent him to a fancy pants boarding school for boys. Deprived of women to hit on, he was miserable there, and deluded himself into thinking that his father would never be so cruel as to send him to such an awful place. He escaped when he was seven, and went home, only to find that his father did, indeed, want him there, and out of his hair. After his flying nanny threw three books at him and screamed in his ear for five hours, he was sent back. On the ride there, he contemplated his relation to his dad, and decided that if it was the last thing he did, he'd impress his father.
While in school, he studied extremely hard, in an effort to get good grades, and please his dad. The janitor saw him in the library there, too busy studying to make friends, and eventually started chatting with him. They quickly became friends, and though Eliot didn't realize it, the janitor became the father he never had, and upon realizing he had the potential for airbending, taught him how to use it to swordfight.
Finally, the Black Lotus came, and burned his school to the ground, killing the janitor, and making all his work moot. He then decided that if it was the last thing he did, he would defeat the Black Lotus and make his father proud!

Other: He uses a martial art with a bokuto, or wooden sword. He imbues the dead wood with his own chi, making it essentially part of him, and allowing him to use it as a conduit for his airbending, making it almost indestructible, and unbelievably sharp. He can do it with any piece of wood, but uses his bokuto because it is built specifically for fighting with. He can also use airbending to speed himself up. However, since he concentrates mostly on learning to use his sword, he probably won't learn anymore bending techniques anytime soon without a master.
