Elaine has a wonderful mind for details, which she used as a detective working for narcotics for four years. She then transferred to the homocide department, where she was coupled with Carolyn Dunn. Refusing to be corrupt, she tried to get an arrest warrant for the governor's son, who had committed a murder on a junkie. Instead, her partner arrested another junkie for the murder. To lower her morale, Elaine's superior gave her another partner, Michael Fulsom. Fulsom was openly corrupt, working for Jimmy Blute and making the murders of the Blute brothers look like accidents in the cases. Elaine thought about resigning from her job after working one day with Fulsom, but decided otherwise.
Elaine Pruitt was created by writer Al Ewing and artist Kewber Baal.
