History: (Inhumans II#5) - Elejea accompanied Mendicus and another Inhuman female to the United Nations and watched as he acted as ambassador for the Inhumans. He met with Ambassador McIntyre and Mr. Bixby.

(Inhumans II#6) - Elejea accompanied the weary Mendicus back to Attilan, where he reported on human politics. She was worried about his fragile state. (Inhumanity I#2 )- After Attilan's fall, handmaidens Minxi and Marista joined Elejea in tending to Medusa at Avengers Tower. Elejea reported that the clean of Attilan's ruins were ongoing and that the Inhumans were working with other superheroes. Later, she reported that humans were stealing and experimenting on some Inhuman cocoons before they opened. (Inhuman I#2) – In New Attilan, Elejea informed Queen Medusa that Captain America was there for a visit. Elejea soon informed Medusa of a problem outside the city, where A.I.M. was attacking. Elejea informed Medusa that she'd received requests from many major networks for interviews then Elejea showed in Lineage. (Inhuman I#3) – Elejea tried stopping Lineage from approaching Medusa but he showcased his powers to channel his ancestors' memories through his skin and Medusa allowed him to continue. (Inhuman I#4) – In New Attilan, Elejea was shot by some Inhuman gunmen in front of Medusa, Thor and Inferno. Vinatos was summoned to treat her. Elejea stabilized in the hospital, where Medusa visited her later.

(Inhuman I#8) – Frank McGee talked to Elejea about Auran's death then made the choice to give the news to her twins.
(Inhuman I#9) – Elejea welcomed Sterilon, Lineage, Frank McGee, Triton, Ms. Marvel, Inferno, Gabriela Petruz, Gorgon, Naja and others to the funeral for Vinatos. Medusa shockingly entered, her personality having been inverted by a spell, and she cruelly flung Vinatos' coffin out into the river. Later, Elejea was present when Medusa declared war on the humans. (Inhuman I#12) – After the forces of Ennilux were defeated, Medusa sent Elejea with Inferno and Naja to greet Iso, a new Inhuman among them. (Inhuman I#13) – Elejea flanked Medusa with Triton and Lineage proposed they go investigate a Kree base that Black Bolt had destroyed. Elejea followed Medusa, McGee and Triton through the door with Lineage but Lineage soon stranded them there, leaving them to face the forces of Lash and his Tribe (Grove, Kacy, Mother Bones, others) on their own. (Inhuman I#14) – Elejea fired guns during the fight with the Tribe then used a light shield to protect the others from a power blast by Lash. Elejea held up as long as she could but her shield was soon overwhelmed and she was killed.

Comments: Created by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee.

In her original appearance, Elejea had black eyes before a yellow background but they were stark white in her later appearances. She also had spikes on the sides of her face that later disappeared.
