PlotEdit

Elen’s origin including her original name is somewhat of a mystery. What is known is she was born in Mongolia and somehow ended up in a orphanage in the anime and a brothel that exploited young women in the visual novel game the anime was based off of. The Ova suggested that she had a brother and her village was slaughter by men with machine guns.

She was then adopted by Sythe where she had memories removed becoming Ein the assassin Phantom.

On a mission to kill a reporter for a mysterious envelope, presumably damaging information on Inferno, Ein first encounter Reiji. After he witnesses Ein assassination of the reporter he becomes Ein's next target. However when Reiji shows his extraordinary instinct and survival skill, Scythe decide to make Reiji an assassin like Ein instead of killing him.

Reiji's memories are erased and he is given the name Zwei then trained by Ein on how to become an assassin. Ein and Reiji escaped from the organization and go to a motel, where Reiji gives her a new name, Elen, due to Ein claiming that she has no past, no name or purpose for living on other than assisting Scythe. Reiji disagrees with this, and promises to protect her and make her "a normal girl." meaning that he would take her away from the world of bloodshed that the two had been forced into. The pair are eventually separated and found by Infero, with Elen encountering and following Scythe after he kills her pursuer. Reiji and Ein meet once again on the docks in San Francisco during a shootout between Scythe's men and Inferno's that results in Elen going unconsciousness from blood loss and Reiji believing her to be dead as Scythe escapes with her unresponsive body.    

A year and a half later, it is discovered that she was the one secretly responsible for the various killings of the Godo Mafia group and the non-lethal interruption during the meeting between the Godo Mafia and Infero. Reiji eventually finds out that Elen was the one responsible for the incedents, and goes to the building in the desert, where the two breifly duel before escaping both Inferno and Scythe by heading south instead of north, crossing the mexican-american border and then going to the philipines. They spend six months there before moving to Japan under the guise of brother and sister, and spend another year and a half as civilans while attending the same high school as Mio before Inferno finds them once more. After the pair work together in defeating the forces of the Godo mafia, the third phantom Inferno sends after them along with the German Sisters, a group of new phantom models that Scythe created in Ein's image, Elen finally kill Scythe while rejecting her past as Ein. Reiji and Elen then travel to Mongolia, where the trail of Elen's past grows cold and both are killed through ambiguous means in the anime, while in the Visual Novel both survive.
