Estelle 'Elle' LeRoux was born to her mother Sophie LeRoux, in Louisiana on January 16, 1993. Sophie was an up-and-coming avant garde fashion photographer whose latest muse had been the stars and constellations. Needless to say she attracted Astraeus at once when he happened to wander upon one of gallery showings in New York.
Sophie was enchanted by the handsome man who seemed so interested in her works that she decided to take a risk, she decided to leave behind her inhibitions and fool around with his stranger for the week she was up in New York. Imagine her surprise when her show turned out a huge success and she started to gain popularity in The New York scene and her bigger surprise when she found herself pregnant.
She continued to work and once Estelle 'Elle' was born she realized she could not deny who's daughter this was. She had the same dark black hair, as dark as night, as the young man Sophie had met up in New York. Sophie made her daughter stay down in Louisiana as she built up her career, visiting her little pride and joy as much as she could. Elle grew up in a small town, but seemed to reject the boring, plain life style that everyone else seemed to accept.
She grew up constantly watching fashion and admiring her mother's fashionable life style and refusing to wear anything but the most cutting age fashion and make-up. Elle spent the school year in a boarding school in Louisiana and then spent the summers up in New York with her Mother, often helping her out at her photo shoots. Then in the summer when she turned seventeen, something happened when she visited her mother. Astraeus had heard that Sophie was still living in New York, and was going to go visit her studio, when he arrived he saw Elle. He realized who She was as soon as he saw her, with his dark hair and her mother's clear blue eyes. He confronted Sophie and told her that Elle was in danger as long as she lived in the human world, that she most go live amongst her own kind. He summoned a satyr who then escorted Elle to Camp Half-Blood.
She is tall and lengthy with extremely pale skin and hair as dark as night. Her eyes are a clear blue and she often wears sunglasses whenever outside since her eyes are very sensitive to bright light. She has a slight southern twang from living all of those years in Louisiana, but she refuses to accept any part of her small town heritage, and only wears the cutting edge in style and fashion. Her hair is cut into a short bob.
