Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Overview. Eliot is a student at Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, where he excels at learning magic despite never seeming to work for it. Growing up, he was bullied for being gay, and he takes Brakebills as an opportunity to be the person he always wanted to be. That is, he takes advantage of the finer things in life, is open about his sexuality, and doesn’t work harder than he has to. Despite this, he has an instinctive understanding for complex magic. 

Personality. witty, charming, but melancholic. On the surface, Eliot is carefree, cracking jokes and dressing to nines. But that hides a loneliness and insecurity that bleeds through at the edges. He has a fondness for fine wines, but drinks too much, and occasionally his jokes cut a little more than would be strictly funny. However, he’s the unspoken leader of his group of friends, due to his charm and intelligence.
