Eli was very proud of the fact that he was a descendant of King Lycaon's eldest son. He believed that gave him the right to police all the other Were-Hunters.
His youngest son violated eirini laws (peace laws enacted by Savitar) and was therefore refused entry to Sanctuary. Without protection, he was soon killed and Eli blamed the Peltiers for his death. On the one hundredth anniversary of his son's death, Eli had the voodoo priestess Cosette summon demons to Sanctuary and attacked with his pack. During the battle, he was about to deal a death blow to Fang Kattalakis, but Nicolette Peltier threw herself in front of the sword. In her bear form, she mauled him to death before she died.
