Elika or Captain Elika plays a major supporting role in Mega Man X: Unit 49. He was a policial reploid who stood out amongst his colleagues, and was called to lead the 49th Special Pursuit Squad 8. After committing many mistakes, Elika became a frustrated person who blames himself for all the bad things that happen with his friends.
Despite being a serious combat Reploid, Elika is very friendly and kind. He seems to be highly frustrated about his failures, since he couldn't kill Saturn nor was able to prevent the Operation Doomsday, causing the Great Neo Maverick War. Elika thinks he is culprit in a way for most of the damages and lives lost, and claims to be the only guilty when his squad makes a mistake. The amount of stress accumulated during the series makes him lose his mind when any inconvenience occurs, such as the creation of the Earth's Army, that is a bad thing at long term and minimizes ther remaining Maverick Hunters.
In the year of 2184, Elika was appointed as the leader of the 49th Unit to hunt the ex-RaDoRB assistant Saturn. In 2186, after many stalemates against his enemy and his war machines, Elika and his colleagues ambushed Saturn and damaged him severely, dropping him on an abyss in the end. Elika was very optimist about their victory and did not want to go down there to make sure Saturn was really dead, even with Rubre insisting they should do that.
Two years later, Saturn came back from the dead and ambushed Frosch and Rott, killing the two as vengeance for what they had done with him. Rubre blamed Elika for that and became mad at him, since it was up to him decide whether they should have confirmed Saturn's death.
In the events of Ineluctable Demise, Elika was caught off guard by Suction and Rubre tried to help him, but that only led to her own death at the hand of the bat Maverick. Before beheading her, Shad ensured that Elika would feel pressured and guilty for not being able to do anything to prevent her death. Elika felt deeply bad about himself, saying he was unworthy of his position. To make matters worse, minutes later he would find Dr. Henry Snacman dead in Platina's arms, because he did not came to help them fighting Saturn in time.
After the events of Prologue: Doomsday, Elika contacted the 17th Unit to talk with any survivors of the attack made by Saturn, and found X, Alia and Zero in the other side of the screen. He asked them to come to the 49th Unit so they could discuss about the situation and have a proper structure to prepare their missions against Saturn.
After their defeat in Parade, the Maverick Hunters are beyond an upcoming catastrophe, that is the conflict between the Neo Maverick Army and the Earth's Army. Thanks to Elika's efforts, Nora could track Kran and the Hunters go to their first mission, with the hope of stopping one of the Maverick generals and preventing them from producing more troops. Meanwhile, Elika was determined to convoke the remaining Maverick Hunters to join the 49th Unit, with the objective of showing that they were still in large number and the Council should not lose their trust on them.
During the next days, Elika would stay closed in his room waiting answers from the other units, talking with them by video conference. His idea of gathering forces in the same place was in disaccord with some Hunters, such as Raika, who said that making this would only tease the Maverick forces to repeat what they've done with the main headquarters. After all, Elika could still get very good result from that: it is known that Trickster, Illusion, Falsetto and Ying will be joining forces with the 49th Unit. The Commander Rondine of the Air Cavalry also offered help with airships.
