Elise Holtzapple was born to an unwed mother, who cared for her for nearly six months before releasing her to the Mothers of Kuhann. Elise led a simple convent life, and her tasks were related to tending to the chickens and to the garden. She has no skills in cooking or reading, but hand sews proficently.
She is a beautiful girl, but with her blond hair and blue eyes is of distinctly low heritage.
She has been taken in by Aysel Beechdale for work as a shop girl, as a charitable cause for the temple of Kuhann.
