High King of Fillory

Eliot is one of the Physical Kids, and he is also a very talented magician, perhaps the most natural at Brakebills. He is the first person that Quentin Coldwater runs into when the latter comes across Brakebills for his examination.

Eliot's sexuality is a minor plot point throughout the novel, as is his over-dependence on alcohol. He is seen to be the unofficial leader of the group of five (along with Quentin, Alice, Josh, and Janet) throughout the novel. He, Janet, and Josh are several years older than Quentin and Alice.



Eliot waugh in a short summary is charming, secretive, and very ambitious. As king of Fillory, he wants to bring about the change that the land of Fillory so desperately needs. He brought about the primitive ideals of farming and agriculture, as well as his favorite commodity, champagne. Eliot is also very quick thinking, and can articulate sentences in creative, sometimes sarcastic, ways. His mannerisms are also rather...fabulous as well. Eliot's sexuality is defined in the television series as "gay", as confirmed by his actor Hale Appleman, who is quotes in saying he is "proud to be playing a gay character."

He is also very caring towards his friends, and knows that they will always have his back. He looks to them on insight, as well as support for his decisions. He seems to show a particular affection to Quentin, a kind that stands the tests of time and magic.
