Who is he?
Elián is a lively, authoritarian, ambitious, self-assured and passionate man who needs to be physically active and always moving forward. He could seem quite impressive at first, and appears to be strong, reliable and trustworthy. It's true that he tends to be made of stern stuff, and can occasionally be quite argumentative and even arrogant, loathes flattery and is allergic to restriction. Impatient, and endowed with astonishing mental agility, he can also be irritable, nervous, aggressive and possibly even violent if he considers that certain lines have been crossed... Even so, most of the time he is extremely pleasant, responsible, curious, adaptable and capable of introspection when necessary. He is usually fascinated by adventure and novelty, and could often feel torn between his sense of duty and responsibility - and the desire to live his life the way that he desires, without worrying about what anyone else thinks, and either of these tendencies could prevail, depending on the moment and the circumstances. Elián comes across as a solid, sturdy character who can be leaned on, although he would prefer to relinquish some of the responsibility that he feels for others, who benefit greatly from his helpfulness and his tendency to take things seriously. As a child, he is brimming over with energy, and a rigid authoritarian attitude certainly won't hold much sway with him. He is much more likely to respect those who are frank and direct, who trust him and respect his sense of justice and equity. As long as he has the love of his family he will probably be a very affectionate and responsible child, although he could be a little hothead at times, and physical exercise is necessary to his equilibrium. Not particularly subtle, sensitive or impressionable; he is conscientious, courageous and although he can be abrupt at times, his behaviour is generally consistent.
