Sword Master


"Kanavan's Ruby Knight."

Main Info

The first daughter of the Sieghart family, Elesis was born in a period of chaos and is the first female heiress of the family. She is a Kanavan Knight and daughter of a Kanavan Tracker who never returned after he was dispatched to find Kaze'aze. She is an exceptional swordsman who has been trained by her father since childhood. While she was on a journey to find her father, she heard news about Kaze’aze in the Serdin Kingdom. Hiding her true identity, Elesis joins the Grand Chase in hopes of finding her father.


Being the first female successor of the Sieghart family, she strives to be strong and has the tendency to act like a man. Despite not being the type to hold grudges, Sieghart's foolish antics have made things difficult on her search to find her missing father. At times when she is filled with worry or cannot think straight, she turns to train her sword to ease her mind.

Special Ability


Status Berserk

When Elesis gets hit by an arrow or kunai, a small meter will be shown to the right of her. The gauge empties quickly in a short amount of time. When the gauge is filled to the top after being hit by enough arrows or kunai, the word BERSERK will be shown in the middle of the screen, and those around her will be sent upward and back down, suffering a small bit of damage in the process.

Only Elesis, Sieghart after equipping Berserker, and Dio after equipping Weapon Passive 3 have this ability, though only Elesis has the words occurring. Arme can gain a different version of Berserk through Mental Recovery that only increases her mana regeneration.

Arrow Defense

Arrow Defense, by its obvious name, defends from arrows. Tap the Dash Button (Arrow LArrow L or Arrow RArrow R) as an arrow is near. It is also possible to deflect arrows back to the user as well, though at a small chance. When successfully blocked, it will show as "Defense", and negate the damage of the arrow by 80%.

Arrow Defense only blocks standard-leveled arrows. If any enhanced arrow is approaching, it is impossible to defend/block it and must be dodged.

All characters except for Lire and Arme has Arrow Defense. However, Lire can gain the ability to shoot down enemy arrows and Arme can gain the ability to deflect arrows. Some monsters are also capable of using Arrow Defense.

Magic Defense

Status Defence P

Basically the same thing as Arrow Defense, but protects against Magical components instead. Many certain abilities, such as reflectors, defensive swings, or defensive shields, are known to block only several magical attacks, mostly Firebolt spells.

The ability to acquire Magic Defense is usually gained through the use of a Skill Tree. Only Elesis, Lire, Arme, Ryan, Ronan, and Sieghart can gain Magic Defense.

Elesis is also the only character that can actually block the Magician's Magic Circle, in the same manner as Arrow Defense.

Elesis in Elsword.

Elesis and Elsword
  • In Elsword, another game designed by KOG Studios which has a very similar synopsis to Grand Chase, there is a young boy named Elsword who has the same storyline as Elesis. Elsword is a young swordsman who was raised and trained by his older sister, Elsa, the leader of the Red Knights. One day, she left him to lead a mission but never returned. This caused Elsword to head out on a journey in an attempt to look for her. The main website describes Elsword as "ambitious but hot headed young swordsman", which is much like Elesis' personality.
    • Elsa was originally named Elesis. Elesis also being the leader of the Ruby Knights is very similar to Elsa's leadership for the Red Knights. Additionally, there is a concept art on Naver blog of Elesis and Elsword as siblings. However, due to copyright reasons resulting from the fact that Grand Chase and Elsword are hosted by different companies at that time, this relationship was scrapped.
      • Despite this, Elesis was later implemented into Elsword, carrying over her name, personality, red color theme, appearance, and poses, only with their backgrounds slightly differing. Additionally, Elsa had been renamed back to Elesis.
        • Likewise, the Naver blog had introduced Elsword as Elesis' brother in Grand Chase.
      • Interestingly, the Elsword manhwa shows their Elesis crossing a Dimensional Portal to join forces with Lire, Arme, Lass, and Ronan in order to defeat a giant monster called Cosmic Devil that threatens to destroy the universe.
      • Elesis' Korean voice actor also voices her Elsword counterpart.
  • Ernasis, one of Aernas' Creators long ago, bears a striking resemblance to Elesis in both name and appearance. Whether or not if this is a coincidence is unknown.
  • Elesis appears to have no control over her emotions, always raging and has no sense of strategy other than constant offensive.
  • Elesis and Arme tend to argue a lot during their adventures from Trial Tower to Gorgos' Dungeon and from Partusay's Sea to Kamiki's Castle, while Lire always has to break up the two's usually-pointless battles.
  • Elesis's family, along with Rufus's family, are the only ones with the most number of members revealed. Coincidentally, both families have exactly two members within the Chase itself (Elesis and Sieghart for the Sieghart family; Rufus and Lass for the Wilde family) and both families have a father who is missing (Elscud for the Sieghart family; Legis for the Wilde family).


  • Elesis was originally designed to be a resident of Serdin.
  • Before her Season 3 revamp, Elesis' Knight and Spearman classes taunted by slapping her butt at her foes in mockery. After the revamp, she simply twirls and points her weapon at them. Despite this, the Korean version (and possibly others) of the revamp still shows Elesis slapping her butt in a reanimated pose.
  • Before the Grand Chase Chaos update, Elesis' armor-less equipment was initially a one-piece clothing. As of now, it is a two-piece clothing.
  • Ironically, Elesis' stat distribution gives her high defense and low attack power, yet Elesis is shown to be extremely aggressive, and therefore, it should be the opposite instead. However, this can be explained by her status as a Knight which specializes in defense, and for the latter, her lack of a father figure.
    • Back in Season 2, Elesis' high defense actually had a significant impact on her survival. One could say that this complemented rather than contradicted her aggressive gameplay because otherwise, she would have been a glass cannon rushing to death.[3]
  • Elesis has been shown to be the most violent member of the Chase. This is supported by the following:
  • Elesis is the only character who uses both hands to wield her weapons in all her jobs.
  • As shown by her attitude, dialogue, and being a descendant of Sieghart, Elesis is able to use a similar rage function like him. However, unlike Sieghart, Elesis's rage mode is more defensive than offensive.
  • Ironically, Elesis has a stronger Berserk than her grandfather, despite that Sieghart lived/trained 585 years more than her.
  • Many of Elesis's attacks have/had the word Slash in them (Mega Slash, Compact Slash, Firebolt Slash, Cross Slash, Vertical Slash, Meteor Slash, Windmill Slash), or at least a word pronounced similarly to Slash (Round Crash, Winding Flash).
  • In a Question and Answer blog for Elesis, Lire, and Arme, it is stated that Elesis:
    • ...was named after the goddess Ernasis.
    • ...likes the color red.
    • ...likes eating red meat.
    • ...likes rose baths.
    • ...has never gone to an academy or school and grows up training for the Ruby Knights.
  • According to a Bingo question, the names of Elesis, Lire, and Arme originally came from the real-world continent of Europe. However, with the exception of Arme's, this is incorrect as the names are actually modified versions of real-world names, such as Alexis/Elise and Lir.
