However, Elena discover what Calisto can do and finds out that it can be use for anybody personal gain. Wanting to expose her superior, Alexander Brock, for this, Elena called the Townsend Agency for help and meet Edger Bosley. However, they were ambush by an assassin named Hodak as he killed Edger Bosley but Elena was saved by Angels named Jane Kano and Sabina Wilson. After meeting up with Rebekah Bosley, Elena teams up with Jane and Sabina to figure out who wants to use Calisto and tried to have her killed. During the case, Elena discover a side she never knew she had and started to bond with the Angels as she comes to see them like sisters. However, Elena was kidnapped by John Bosley, who went rogue and betrayed the Townsend Agency, as she started to figure out that her boss not only wanted her dead but also sees how dumb he was to see that Calisto was being stolen from him.

Through the training, Elena managed to get through it and official became an Angel and got their official tattoo. Also, Elena begins working with Jane and Sabina as a team for the Townsend Agency.


Elena is very smart as she graduated at the top of her class at "MIT" and is a skilled hacker. Also, Elena was very shy as she would get scared real easily and whenever she is in shocked she would throw up as she assumes things, shown that she thought yellow was her color and that the assassin was shooting at all of them. Elena does have a heart of gold and easily became best friends with Jane and Sabina. However, Elena went through a great change from that shy scientist to a strong confident Angel who would't back down from doing what's right. [1]
