Elena Rodriguez is a Colombian Inhuman who underwent Terrigenesis after eating fish contaminated with Terrigen. As a result of her change, Elena was given the ability to briefly move at in inhumanly fast speed before snapping back to the place she activated her speed burst a moment later.
After discovering her new enhancement, Elena decided to use it to fight the corrupt Colombian police. She stole an arsenal of their weapons from out of the back of a police van; however, the theft attracted the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D., an American organization hunting down and apprehending Inhumans who abused their powers. She kidnapped the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie and sent her cousin, Francisco, to dispose of the guns. The rest of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team found Mack and apprehended Elena, but they soon concluded that they had misjudged her. Upon learning that her cousin had been killed by the Colombian police she agreed to ally herself with the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in a mission to rescue two of their own from the corrupt police, and quickly earned the agents' trust. Agent Daisy Johnson decided Elena could stay in Colombia, but with S.H.I.E.L.D.'s supervision.
Powers and Abilities
Enhanced Speed: Elena can accelerate to an incredible speed, moving faster than can normally be seen by the naked eye, and otherwise detectable as a blur in a single frame of CCTV footage. She claims that her speed is linked to her pulse rate, and her enhanced movements take place within the time frame between two beats of her heart. When the momentary burst of speed ends, Elena snaps back to her point of origin that she was at each time she engages her power. In the final season of the series Elena is able to run independently without getting snapped back to her start position.
Cybernetic Arms: After her arms were severed by Ruby Hale, they were replaced with cybernetic prosthesis.
