Is there an animal you equate with your character?
An eagle is the animal that Eliana would most equate with for a number of reasons. An eagle is known for their strong independence and not at all for being insecure. They are unable to remain in one place for long, and that is how Eliana is. She is constantly wanting to try something new and to be around new people. Travelling is an eagle's greatest love, and Eliana greatly loves to travel and see new places. They are magnificent creatures that make their own way in this world, no matter their surroundings. The person that equates to the eagle is said to be one that has an affinity towards extreme sports, like skydiving, rock climbing, and bungee jumping. She has at least done skydiving before, and the other two are on her list of things to do.
Eagles are not known to perform well in office settings, and that most certainly is Eliana. Her dream work is something active, like a professional sport. Commitment, at least emotionally, is not her strong suit. That is not to say that she would not be loyal, but that she might not always be emotionally available to others. It is just not exciting to her to remain stagnant for long, unless something specific is keeping her interest. At present moment, she has been with Ryan for a long time, but not labeling their actual relationship has helped her to actually stay interested. There is no actual, labeled commitment, though the commitment and loyalty is still present.
She is a fairly outgoing person, and easy to connect with others, but she does not hold attachments to many. Most relationship for her would be shallow, at best. She is very comfortable with being by herself and she might often be found doing different activities by herself. This is what led her to meeting her now best friend. She is attracted to no long-term expectation of commitment. It is said that, "Before an eagle would consider committing to a relationship, it must first feather its nest by achieving a level of success in their personal lives". In this regard, Eliana would find this very true. She has a lot that she wants to achieve, personally.
