Elias is just a ''Normal'' guy, he doesn't have much to complain about. His family isn't wealthy, but they aren't poor, they don't struggle.
He is an only child and under the guidance of his parents, as their parents did before them he was sent to live by himself once he entered high school other than the weekly allowance to help him, he had to pretty much fend for himself, he didn't mind.
He was never like other kids, so to speak, not that he was overly smart, or overly handsome, he was just... Wiser than them?
Some people have all the knowledge in the world, but don't use it well. From a young age, e learned he had an active mind, which allowed him to see differently than others, to solve problems faster by using strange solutions, or at least a different approach. He wasn't a fast thinker exactly, but given enough time he could easily see another path
He was never... Emotionally available? Not exactly unfeeling, or cold, but he never went with his emotions, it was mostly logic, other than the occasional temptation he let himself do. Always calm when others would freak out. At first, he thought he might be ''Different'' so to speak, but his therapist, even if she found it a bit weird how he thought, said there was nothing really wrong with him. He was just different in his own way.
He was a gamer, a reader, he even read a lot of novels, web or other wise. He did think about what he'd do with a ''System.'' He decided that he would definitely enjoy it, even mess with it and use it to do things he normally couldn't but he never really considered himself a... ''Rule the worlds'' type, would it be cool to be strong in multiple words, or universes? Sure, it'd be pretty neat.
But who wants to have that much pressure on their shoulders? He sure didn't.
Follow Elias on his path of strange encounters, humorous deads, and amusing thought process.
