Elliot Craig (エリオット・クレイグ) is a music producer and a former member of Thors Military Academy's Class VII.



His mother, a beloved piano teacher, passed away when he was 9 years old. To follow in her footsteps, Elliot and his sister Fiona aspired to pursue a career in music.

Elliot's desire to follow in his mother's footsteps was put to a temporary halt after his father refused to give approval. Olaf believed that it was not appropriate for an Erebonian man to pursue a career in music, and that he should instead join the military with him.

Thors Military Academy

Since Elliot was stopped in his tracks by his father's opinion, Elliot gave up on attending music school. As a way of meeting halfway with his father, Elliot signed up for the Thors Military Academy, which had military courses and allowed him to sign up for the Wind Orchestra as a school club activity.

Although shy and timid, Elliot is capable of mustering an enormous amount of courage in the face of incredible adversity, as he stood by classmates on numerous occasions, against enemies such as the Imperial Liberation Front.

During the Heimdallr field study, Elliot confides to his classmates that it had been a personal goal of his to pursue a career in music. He was deeply frustrated in not being able to go to the Music Academy in Heimdallr, but eventually came to accept the outcome of events. Like Alisa Reinford, he does not have any regrets with coming to Thors Military Academy, as he feels that being with Class VII has done more for him than anything else in his life.


Following his graduation from the Thors Military Academy in S.1205, Elliot decides to finally pursue his career in music by enrolling in the Music Academy at Heimdallr. He graduates in S.1206 and becomes a music producer who travels across Erebonia. Elliot also works as a music teacher for children.
