5岁那年, 她进入女修道院学习, 这里的院长对她的欢声大笑极其厌恶。这个老女人用苔杖鞭打埃莉斯的手掌，而留下的伤疤则引起了朱莉的注意，这位院长也因此遭到了朱莉的威胁。从此，埃莉斯的父母聘用了家庭教师来帮助她完成学业。这件事也在年幼的埃莉斯心中留下了一个问题，就是为什么其他女人的行为举止与母亲的竟有着天壤之别。
1774年春，卡罗尔家——一个来自英国 的圣殿骑士家庭——访问了德·拉塞尔家族。埃莉斯和母亲一起招待了卡罗尔太太 和她的女儿梅·卡罗尔 并邀请她们到花园里散步。其间梅偶尔会嘲弄埃莉斯，还经常特意强调埃莉斯只有六岁而她却已经十岁了。这使得埃莉斯十分恼怒，因此她决定去偷听大人们关于圣殿骑士团的谈话以及那些令她更加困惑不解的只言片语。梅问她是否知道自己的“宿命”是什么，埃莉斯说她不知道。梅便故作惊讶地告诉她，等她到了十岁就会知道的，就像梅现在一样。
那年晚些时候，由于阿尔诺的父亲死在了谢伊·科马克 的手上，弗朗西斯·德·拉塞尔收养了年幼的阿尔诺·多里安。 从此，埃莉斯和阿尔诺一起成长，调皮的埃莉斯总是怂恿她的义兄去闯祸。有一次，她说服阿尔诺越过栅栏进入一座有着看门狗巡逻的果园，结果被逮个正着。 他们成为了好朋友，埃莉斯也很喜欢扮演姐姐的角色。两个孩子还会玩跳绳、跳房子、踢毽子，也会在他们平时比赛的地方练习击剑，但无一例外都是埃莉斯获得胜利。她在早晨像个大人一样学习课程，到了下午就会变成和阿尔诺玩耍的小孩子。
埃莉斯被送到圣路易王家学校 去完成一个淑女和圣殿骑士应有的教育，她和阿尔诺不得不暂时分开一段时间。埃莉斯厌恶这座学校并在她的信中将其比作“贫瘠之宫（Le Palais de la Misére）” ，她认为自己的天性不适合这所学校。埃莉斯痛恨王家学校的规矩和约束，也痛恨学习那些所谓的“技艺”，比如刺绣和音乐。她总是与学生领袖瓦莱丽打架，也总是因此受到女校长列文夫人 的的惩罚。她每次都以傲慢回应惩罚，而她的傲慢却只会让事态恶化。在埃莉斯心中由于朱莉去世而带来的空虚感是致使她叛逆的根源，也导致了她对其他学生和老师都抱有轻蔑的态度。
Desperate to reach the de la Serre estate in time, Élise ran amongst the chaos and found her house ransacked by looters. She told the remaining servants and butlers to go someplace safe while she checked her important belongings. Élise found two men named Hook and Harvey, who were hired by the Carrolls to eliminate her, but managed to kill them with a distraction from Ruddock. Ruddock told her that he had found the man who hired him, known as the Roi des Thunes.
Élise spent her following days drunk and anxious, until 25 July 1789, when Arno arrived in the estate and explained that he was not François' killer. Élise showed Arno the letter that he had failed to deliver, and told him to go. Weatherall and a new Templar initiate Jean Burnel arrived on 20 August 1789 and helped Élise recover her bearings. She managed to learn from her mentor that the Roi des Thunes was also responsible for her father's death.
Adamant in her desire to regain leadership of the Templar Order, Élise called a meeting at the Hôtel de Lauzun in October 1789. Accompanied by Jean, she discovered through the Marquis de Pimôdan that some of her Templar associates had been murdered in a purge. The Marquis revealed to Élise that there were killers waiting for her downstairs, and Élise attempted to outwit them. Her efforts failed however, resulting in Jean being killed by ligature, and Élise breaking a rib on a ship's hull as she tried to escape by jumping into the River Seine.
Élise was nursed back to health by Hélène and Jacques, and learned that all her allies had abandoned her. Nevertheless, she trained to improve her combat skills as she waited for a chance to find her enemies. On 1 April 1791, she decided to meet Chrétien Lafrenière at the Hôtel Voysin, having received a letter stating his willingness to support her. However, she discovered the meeting was a trap. To her surprise, she saw a hooded Arno, who informed her that Lafrenière was dead, and helped her escape the attackers.
Hunt for justice编辑
- “You are not men with whom I would normally parley, monsieur, but my father is dead, as are my allies within the Order. If I must turn to the Assassins for my revenge, so be it.”
- ——Élise, addressing her comments to the Assassin Council, 1791.[来源]
On 2 April 1791, the pair went to the Assassin Council to ask permission for Élise's aid in hunting the rogue Templar members. While the Council held a private meeting, they decided to investigate on their own in the warehouse of Arno's informant, the silversmith and former Templar François-Thomas Germain. However, Élise and Arno fell into a trap set by four Templar killers, but they were able to fight and eliminate them. The pair uncovered Templar plans and documents signed by Germain and fathomed that he was the new Grand Master.
They were interrupted by gunshots and the two headed to the Assassin Mentor Mirabeau's estate, where they found him dead beside a Templar badge designed to inflict poison. Thinking that Élise might be blamed for the incident, they decided to investigate further and tracked down the killer: Pierre Bellec.
After killing him, Arno told Élise that he had also killed the Roi des Thunes and the traitor Charles Gabriel Sivert, much to the lady's fury. She wanted to inflict pain and death to her father's killers and Arno stole the opportunity from her. Fortunately, he managed to calm her down, saying that he gave them justice.
The pair continued their hunt, where Arno eventually assassinated Marie Lévesque, and shared a ride on a hot-air balloon, where the lovers shared an intimate moment. However, the deaths of her father's advisors served as a mere diversion and added to the anger consuming the young lady.
On 20 January 1793, Élise returned to Versailles where she reported her latest endeavors to Weatherall. Her mentor noticed her want for revenge and tried to warn her, but the young lady remained stubborn. The next day, Élise and Arno attended the King's execution, where they planned to assassinate Germain. Unfortunately, Germain had the guards alerted and he escaped, Arno choosing to save Élise over chasing the Grand Master, for which Élise was not grateful. She then cut off contact with him.
Élise learned from Weatherall that Arno had been expelled from the Brotherhood and retreated to Versailles, where he had become the town drunk. In June 1793, she went to the Palace of Versailles where she found Arno's watch, and returned it to him. Élise requested his help, but Arno was reluctant. Eventually, she was able to convince him to resume their hunt for Germain. While Arno assassinated the Templar Aloys la Touche, Élise secured transport to Paris.
Through the memories of la Touche, Arno learned that revolutionary leader Maximilien de Robespierre was one of Germain's conspirators. They decided to instigate a rebellion against Robespierre. If this happened, Germain would abandon Robespierre, who would be more vulnerable to give up information on his master. At the Festival of the Supreme Being, Élise poisoned Robespierre to make him appear insane to the crowd. Arno also found lists of political opponents that Robespierre planned to eliminate. He placed the lists on critics of Robespierre, who was soon deposed by the National Convention.
However, Robespierre was sentenced to death, leaving Élise and Arno little time to interrogate him. After splitting up to find Robespierre, they cornered him inside the Hôtel de Ville. As Robespierre refused to give up Germain's location, Élise lost control and shot Robespierre's jaw, much to her and Arno's horror. He then wrote that Germain was hiding at the Temple.
- “...Think of me. Just as I shall think of you, until we are together again.”
- ——Élise's final words in her letter to Arno.[来源]
By 28 July 1794, Élise was too consumed with hatred and decided to split up from Arno in their pursuit for Germain in the Temple. It was Arno who encountered Germain wielding a Sword of Eden and was defeated, letting Germain escape once again. Élise and Arno found him in a Templar crypt where the two tried to attack him. Using the Precursor sword, Germain trapped Arno underneath a pillar.
Élise decided to leave Arno and pursue the Grand Master herself. She locked him in a fierce sword fight, which Germain was slowly losing due to an injury that Arno had inflicted. The Sword of Eden's power source became unstable and exploded, throwing Élise into a column, crushing her beneath it. A freed Arno immediately went to his lover, but was seconds too late, as Élise died in his arms. With her death, the de la Serre family was presumably rendered extinct, as she had no siblings and died childless.
- “You should be proud to inspire such loyalty in your followers, Élise. Perhaps you can use those gifts to inspire your Templar associates in other ways. We shall see.”
- ——Jennifer Scott, admiring Hélène's loyalty to Élise, 1788.[来源]
A free spirit, Élise was rarely idle and would often seek out trouble in her youth. As a child, she was quick to laughter which caused her peers in the convent and in the Maison Royale to became annoyed by her. Defined by her mentor Weatherall as overconfident, she sometimes underestimated her opponent and showed stubbornness and irritation if her views were countered. She was very similar to Julie, never keen on joining any of the other noble women's daughters, instead taking an interest in more masculine activities, such as playing war with the boys. Élise believed that there was always a third way, an ideology that she had gained from her deceased mother. Growing up, she developed a set of values which she loyally lived by and was willing to go to any lengths to see her goals fulfilled.
Her opinions were strengthened during her meeting with Jennifer Scott. Élise supported Haytham Kenway's judgement that the war between Assassins and Templars must cease. Élise was also considerate and loving to animals, and was fond of giving them treats or grooming them if they had behaved properly.
Equipment and skills编辑
Due to extensive training throughout her life, Élise was both well-educated and in her physical peaks, with her swordswomanship outclassing even Arno. She was also able to equip pistols in combat. In battle, she would rely on strategy, planning counters for her opponent's moves ahead of time. As a Templar, Élise was also trained to become aware of her surroundings and to use clues found in her environment if she needed to track hidden enemies. If needed, she would use charm to convince people to help her.
Although they were technically family, Élise and Arno saw each other not as siblings, but as friends during their youth. Growing up, their feelings developed and the pair eventually fell in love. Due to their respective educations the lovers had very little time to spend with each other and were only able to meet several times a year. During one her visits abroad, Élise meet Byron Jackson with whom she broke her trust to Arno with. However, Élise immediately regretted this decision and felt extremely guilty about it afterwards. Ultimately she decided not to tell Arno about it and chose to look at her mistake as a sign of the great love she had for him; given how upset she felt over the action and that she wanted no other man in her life other than Arno.
Once Élise discovered Arno's failure to deliver a letter warning her father of the betrayal, their relationship became strained. Élise held Arno responsible for her father's death, and it was not until years later, coincidentally by which point Arno had joined the Assassins, that the two began to rebuild their friendship and quickly resumed their romance.
- Elise这个名字是法语名Élisabeth的简化形式，意思是“上帝的承诺”。另一方面，埃莉斯的姓氏来自于法语Serre，意思是“爪”或“温室”，而de la 的意思是「来自」，表明她是贵族身份。
