She's smart, good-hearted, sweet, and just the most bored girl alive. At 29, Elle has become unchallenged by circumstance, not desire. She's become too lazy to seek things out that challenge her, but they sometimes fall in her lap anyway. Unmoved by her idle tendencies, Elle simply wants to get through each day in the best way she knows how…simply. She goes to great lengths to make something easier, so that she can ultimately be lazier.

Elle and Oz have been pals since the playground, and she would be lost without his presence in her life. She's usually oblivious to his romantic interest in her and would prefer to keep it that way.
