Other names - What other aliases does Eliot Mercer go by?

While I wouldn't normally put a trans character's deadname in here, due to his royal background and status as a runaway it's mentioned in-universe. His birth name was Alyenna Moir, he started going by Eliot soon after being taken in by the Mercer family, and changed his surname to theirs, both as a sign of love to them and to avoid recognition.

fingerprint Nature
Personality type - What personality type is Eliot Mercer?

Eliot is very reserved, and often quite quiet. He's paranoid due to the near-constant fear of being recognized and sent back to his family. He's very intelligent, although he doesn't often speak up in class. His loyalty is difficult to earn and he doesn't trust easily, but when he trusts you, he's with you until the end. He prefers blending in to being the center of attention. His gift is persuasion, but he hates using it, since the idea of compromising someone's free will disgusts him. He just wants a simple life, and he wants to control his power and then return to Chiri to be a farmer or bookseller or something like that. Once he's forced to flee from the Academy, he becomes slowly more willing to take up the mantle of a revolutionary. Although he knows that he could return to Chora and take the throne, he knows that the odds of him being accepted as a man by the general population is low. Moreso than that, he knows that his Gift being persuasion means that he could possibly become a horrific dictator, or unwhittingly control all of his potential subjects, and he refuses to take that chance.
