Elma is a young woman with chin-length black hair and brown eyes. She wears a brown headband and, on top of it, a thin belt-like strap with three diamond-shaped dangles. Her outfit consists of a long-sleeved short dress in shades of black, gold and white. The dress ends in a white pleated skirt. She wears golden fingerless gloves and thigh highs. She completes her outfit with red armor pieces: a breastplate, pauldrons, armguards, a tasset open in the front, shin guards and matching flat shoes.
Elma is cheerful, bubbly, and somewhat tomboyish. She is always ready to welcome Yuna. She becomes hostile to Yuna if she gives the "Awesome Sphere" to New Yevon, even though she only claims she's just doing her job as captain, but they return to being friends after her concert in the Thunder Plains.
Yuna's party meets Elma on the Mi'ihen Highroad the Chocobo Knights are guarding. During Operation Mi'ihen with the Chocobo Knights decimated, Elma escapes with Lucil and Clasko, and the trio is later found at Djose Temple. She expresses optimism that once they round up more chocobos, the mounted forces will ride again. After the operation, Elma joins the trio to guard Yevon temples, displaying her loyalty to Captain Lucil.
Following Sin's defeat, Elma joins the Youth League with her comrades, and holds a position of authority directly beneath Lucil, having been promoted captain. If Yuna aligns with New Yevon, their ideals will conflict and Elma will fight Yuna. However, Yuna's concert changes their minds and Elma will express the League's interest in a truce.

In the International and HD Remaster versions of Final Fantasy X-2, Elma can be recruited into the Gullwings and be used as an ally in battle. She can be caught in Mushroom Rock Road in Chapters 2 and/or 3 using a Special Pod in the Creature Creator feature.
