One of Notte’s currently living eight “first-born” children – that is, a vampire he made himself. She was made approximately 500 AD.
Name meaning: Night (Italian – he picked that one) Other names: Naktam; Night-child; Nox Aeterna; the Blood King; Lord of the Night Whispers; and of course, just Night. Notte by... More chose her because of her skill with the harp. Not unlike A Night Child with an unusual skill for dancing. Notte chose her, though he did not personally make her. She was born in 1900, was made into a Night Child... More (not first-born, though hand-picked by Notte), Elise’s talent eclipsed ordinary musicality by such a degree that he could not let her simply age and die and be lost to the world.
Elise is a little vain, but perhaps deserves to be; she was a primary influence in Dante Gabriel Rosetti’s style.
