About 1hr in photoshop, and I'm actually quite happy with it, even if the armour is supposedly black but looks no different to steel here. This picture also has an ulterior motive of advertising my friends new Halo Role Playing site: [link]

Born into the Ahcol state in 2534 as the only child to Resa'Ahcolee and Soha'Ahcolee. The Ahcol keep resides in a large, flat, arid area of Sanghelios' Northern hemisphere often with clear skies and a moderate temperature. Being the only son of a high-ranking Sangheili warrior he was trained from birth to live up to his fathers expectations, which to his disappointment, Elhi didn't. Although Elhi's combat prowess rivalled that of his father, it was never the main focus of his early years. Elhi took greater interest in his hobbies, such as astronomy, literature and was often found neglecting training lessons to explore the areas surrounding the Ahcol keep (or 'borrowing' his fathers energy sword). This trend continued through his time in the Iruiru War College, where he defied his high expectations achieving only an average pass, being described by his teachers as "Wasted potential."
Upon joining the Covenant Military his interest was immediately shifted, finding he could no longer spend his time as he had done before, he took this new interest with a fervent passion, surprising those who had known him before. In the space of 11 years and 4 long campaigns, he had risen through the ranks to that of a Zealot. He was present in the Reach campaign and was part of the fleet that followed the Pillar of Autumn to Installation 04 and subsequently was moved to the Prophet of Regrets fleet afterwards. Only fighting for a short time at the first battle of Earth, his ship followed Regret's Assault Carrier when it jumped to slipspace and arrived at Installation 05. After the death of Regret he returned with his ship to High Charity. Being so devoted and zealous about his faith, he was hit hardest when the Great Schism occurred.
When he learned of the Prophets deceit and after fighting his way out of his chambers he sent a transmission to any remaining Sangheili to try to get to his ship so they could evacuate High Charity. He arrived at the dock just in time to see the Justice and Retribution take three direct plasma torpedo hits from a Jiralhanae controlled frigate, obliterating his ship. Powerless to help anyone who was onboard which included his own parents, thousands of conflicting emotions ran through him, most powerful of these was anger. He began looking for another ship and found a large group of Jiralhanae loading a Covenant corvette class ship. Elhi descended upon them with an animalistic rage, butchering all those who were on the ship and using it to escape High Charity. Unsure of what to do, he returned to the Ahcol state on Sanghelios to try to collect his thoughts.
The Great Journey was a lie, everyone he knew was dead and everything he spent his life doing was in vain. Well, not everything. As he looked back through his life, he remembered a time when he had been dedicated to his own personal studies and interests, not the will of the prophets and sought the return of those times. Soon after he left Sanghelios and disappeared from records. Only brief hints of him have been mentioned, but you could predict that he needed to find a way to finance his new life and he began running 'errands' of questionable legality and has continued this trend ever since.
Displays symptoms common of Malignant Narcissism such as: Impulsiveness, Recklessness, Pathological lying, apparent lack of empathy, Manipulative and Obsessive compulsive tendencies (mild perfectionist) along with features associated with Schizoid personality which are: lack clarity of goals, weak ethnic affiliation, deeply curious about others, sometimes altruistically self sacrificing, usually capable of steady work, sometimes quite creative and may make unique and original contributions, capable of passionate endurance in certain spheres of interest, asexuality, idiosyncratic moral beliefs, cynical, indifference to either praise or criticism, shows emotional coldness, aloof, a tendency to talk to himself and may seem slightly eccentric to others. On the contrary he also displays tendencies to self-actualisation.

Wears a standard combat harness with modified permutations coloured black with trim & details picked out in red. No significant scars apart from the 4-inch long vertical scar, which almost cost him his left eye, he also prefers to stand straight-backed rather than the usual hunched stance.
