A NEW WORLD
The seductive leader of the new group of Zootists is stunning … and she knows it. Cunning and calculating, Eloise knows exactly how to use her looks to keep her dangerous tribe completely under her thumb. In order to maintain Zoot’s legacy, Eloise craves the missing link that would forever cement her own place within history – the bloodline of Zoot. To this very end, she begins to manipulate Bray, who is her prisoner, into trying to create that bloodline within herself. She submits him to endless Reality Space experiments, slowly breaking down his mind until he is unable to determine truth from fiction.
Though Bray escapes from her clutches with the aid of Judd, Eloise kills the scientist for his betrayal without any hint of hesitation, revealing just how dangerous she truly is. Little did she know that Bray would ultimately end up in the hands of her brother, Blake, who leads the military based Legion tribe.
We do not encounter Eloise again, but the young woman has been far from idle.
A NEW DAWN
After the destruction of the oil rig and the fall of the Legion, the remnants head towards a secluded base located within the mountains – rendezvousing with Eloise and her Zootists. Eloise, now pregnant with child, is enraged that Ebony could have failed her brother so spectacularly. However, at least she has Ram in her clutches. It slowly begins to emerge why she has been after the former Techno leader, because there appears to be more secrets hidden within Eagle Mountain. In addition to this, Eloise skillfully manipulates and uses a crazed Guardian to continue cementing her place within the Zootists as the ‘Mother Divine’.
After some persuasion, Eloise agrees to keep Ebony alive and use her connection to Zoot to also further her cause.
Her sheer ruthlessness re-emerges during the journey to Eagle Mountain when Eloise orders the termination of the hibernation chambers which have been keeping the adults alive. She then forces Ram and the Mall Rats to search for the data device – the accumulated knowledge of all the adults. This is the secret prize that Kami and the Collective have been desperately searching for all this time. Knowledge is power, and if Kami gets his hands on that device…
Though Eloise is stopped and ultimately held captive by the combined efforts of the Mall Rats, it is only a matter of time before Kami and the Collective set their next plans into motion. And with it being revealed that Kami is indeed the father of Eloise’s child, it is a matter of when, not if, the Collective will return.
