“Oh, if you're going up front, then please take these vulneraries...”
—Elen in a support conversation with Melady in The Binding Blade.
Elen (エレン Eren, Ellen in the fan translation) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. She is a cleric who serves as the lady-in-waiting to Guinivere, the princess of Bern. Near the beginning of the game, she escapes from Rude, who had taken both her and Guinivere as hostages. She meets Roy and enlists his help in rescuing Guinivere. She offers to use her healing staff for his cause.
Elen and Zeiss grew up in the same hometown. In their support conversations, it is revealed that she is rather shy around men.

As a unit, Elen is very frail and has difficulty in growing her Magic as her base of 1 leaves much to be desired (even with a 50% growth and +3 Promotion bonus). She's useful in the early chapters but faces competition from Clarine (who is dodgier and mounted), Saul (better base stats and weapon rank), and Cecilia (who is also mounted and has higher weapon ranks). Her high points over her competiton are Luck and Resistance, which enable her to be a decent tank versus oposing Magic users if her Magic and Speed grow well enough. Overall, she's a mediocre staffbot but can still be helpful for players who want an additional Staff user since lategame staffplay becomes very useful (Warp, rescue, saint's staff, status staves, etc) and she gains +1 Staves Rank on promotion.
