Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Elza has long sandy-brown hair held back with a red headband with white patterns and a large red flower and gold beads. In Final Fantasy XII she wears a red long-sleeved jacket with white cuffs and gold patterns on shoulders, fastened with a butterfly button, leaving the top open to reveal her coral pink bikini top. The collar is white with a black strip, and it is open in the back with tan ties and another butterfly button fastening it at the bottom. She wears brown hot pants with a pink bikini thong over them and knee-high brown high-heeled boots with a leg guard on her left leg held in place with two brown belts on her thigh.
In Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings, Elza's jacket becomes more pirate-like with a large white open collar, and is longer. It has orange patterns on the shoulders and wrists with large white cuffs and blue band underneath. It is fastened with a blue and yellow butterfly button. She wears a pink bikini top and has long blue finger nails. She wears black hot pants and black high-heeled shoes. On her right leg she wears red ties that go up to her knee, and on the left wears black ties with one thigh-high red sock and two brown belts. She wears a red bandana with a large pink flower and gold beads in her hair and gold hoop earrings.
The party first encounters Elza at Balfonheim after talking to Reddas. She is found with Rikken and Raz outside Reddas's manor. Questioning whether the party has Reddas's best interests at heart, she wonders if they should be helping them. Rikken asks her if she had complained to Reddas, which silences her.
When the party returns from the Pharos at Ridorana, Elza is not surprised by Reddas's death, knowing that her master had been searching for a place to die all along. When the other two start feeling bad, she tells them they should not regret Reddas's passing, since that would worry Reddas, and he should rest in peace.
The party runs into Elza accompanying Rikken and Daz, who challenge the party to a battle to see who is stronger.
