Elina, also known as Elena, is a minor non-playable character in Final Fantasy II. A widow living in Castle Deist, her husband Phillip (フィリップ, Firippu?) was a Dragoon who was killed when the Palamecian Empire raided Deist. She has a son, Kain, and is a friend of Ricard.
After Ricard's death, if Firion visits her again and asks about the Dragoons, she takes her child and flees Deist, but not before thanking Firion for saving the last Wyvern egg and for letting her see Ricard again, and gives him the Excalibur.
Elina and her son Kain play a vital role in the defeat of the deceased Emperor's light-half. They, alongside Nelly, Prince Gordon, and Princess Hilda, appear before the deceased warriors, including her husband, and warn them that the Light Emperor is just as evil as the Emperor the surviving Wild Rose Rebels are fighting (his dark-half).
