Grew up… a sickly child. Elijah Price was diagnosed at a young age with Type I Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a rare bone disease that rendered him extremely fragile. Price’s frailty earned him the nickname “Mr. Glass.”
Living… with his mother in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. While mentally capable of caring for himself, the realities of his disease force Price to depend on his mother’s love and care.
Profession… owner of a comic book art store. Price insists that his is a “gallery” not a “toy store.” His precious drawings and sketches by famous comic book artists are not intended “for play.”
Interests… comic books, superheroes and supervillains. Elijah has always been fixated on finding his own foil: if Elijah is condemned to be frail, then there must be, somewhere an in the world, a man who is unbreakable. When Elijah hears of David Dunn, the sole survivor of a horrific train wreck, he’s convinced that he might have finally found his missing half.
Challenge… to help David Dunn embrace his destiny. Elijah sees David as the Alpha to his own Omega. “However unreal it may seem, we are connected, you and I. We’re on the same curve, just on opposite ends,” he tells David.
Personality… mysterious, dark and obsessive. Elijah’s intentions seem good, as he wants to convince the unbreakable David to fight for justice. Though any observer would notice Elijah’s obsession with David is more than a little creepy.
