Elliot and Wendy were going on a road trip with their parents to Wyoming, which was a very long trip. It wasn't very exciting and Elliot and Wendy were soon pestering their mother about how bored they were, saying that they wanted to go to camp. Their mother tried to get them play a game, but to no avail. After a futile game of Car Geography, Wendy asked her parents about letting her and Elliot ride in the trailer for a while. Their parents were uneasy at first, but they eventually agreed as long as they were careful. And a few seconds later, Elliot and Wendy were in the trailer, bouncing along, enjoying the ride while the car started to climb a steep hill.
Elliot is a highly competitive person. To him, every game is life or death and he really takes them too seriously and he hates to lose, making him a very bad sport. Elliot gets so intense that it kind of leads to a bit of a downfall for him and when he thinks he is going to lose, he just quits. His sister would always send a whistle signal to him to tell him to not get too intense, but of course he never liked it when Wendy called him a chicken and he tends to make fun of her and sometimes their parents. Elliot is also easily bored and he can hardly sit still on a long drive. Elliot can be the kind of kid who never worries about anything and everything always seems to go his way. But there are moments where he got pretty worried, although he would never admit it. And he and his sister do agree on some things.
Elliot is eleven years old, African-American, tall and skinny with brown hair and brown eyes.
