Have you ever heard the stories of the Legendary Captain of the Red Knights, with hair like a flame and a heart full of fire? That's my sis.
~ Elsword's opening narration, referring to Elesis
Elsword is the main hero and a main protagonist of the MMORPG of the same name. He is a hot-headed knight who attempts to bring the power of El back as well as look for her sister, Elesis.


Elsword is a master swordsman that excels at close range combat. He's quick on his feet and can hack and slash with the best of them. Not only can he dish it out, but he can take a lot of punishment as well. His only real weakness is magic, but in his mind, there's nothing a sharp piece of steel can't beat.

Special Ability

The "Way of the Sword" ability (initially exclusive to Elsword prior to Elesis's release) enables him to utilize energy gained through attacks and skills into 2 types of auras: Aura of Destruction and Aura of Vitality.


Elsword is an ambitious but hot-headed young swordsman trained by his sister Elesis, the leader of the Red Mercenary Knights. Elesis left her little brother to lead a mission, never to return. Elsword now searches the land for two things: El, the precious gems that power his kingdom, and his missing sister.
