Nothing is known about her past, except for the fact that she used to make potions for both Athenril and her smugglers and Meeran's mercenary company, the Red Iron. As a result, she crossed paths with Hawke during their year in indentured servitude. By 9:31 she has recently married a nobleman, and she asks Hawke to call her "Lady Elegant" when they meet again in Lowtown.
She crafts potions for Hawke in Lowtown. She also gives Hawke the Recipe: Elfroot Potion for free.
Elegant has garnered enough status to be invited as a guest of Duke Prosper to Chateau Haine. She greets Hawke warmly and gives a rundown of the party guests, advising them to avoid making eye contact with Babette and Fifi de Launcet.
