A warrior in the Clan Coyote touman, by 3061 Elissa had reached the rank of Star Colonel, and been given command of the Eighteenth Assault Cluster; she would continue to command the Cluster throughout the next decade.
Elissa was killed when the Eighteenth Assault Cluster was destroyed on Niles in 3073 by a combined force from Clan Blood Spirit, Clan Hell's Horses and Clan Fire Mandrill. They were besieged in a complex of BattleMech and Battle Armor factories. Their one success was a nighttime sortie against the Blood Spirit's Alpha Galaxy that killed Galaxy Commander Jon Church.
