Elytra Elater was a Lampyrian space pirate, leader of the Hunters and later Oracle of Hephaestus.


Elytra was the captain of the Hunters space pirates in the Artemis sector. Heir to a powerful Lampyrian family and owner of the Ghost Maker, she allied herself with Talas Khanos in the hope to use his scientific knowledge to expand the lifespan of her species.

When the plan failed, she allied herself with Hephaestus and was transformed by the god into a cyborg.

She fought on the Vulcan Forge, first as an enemy of the Vanguard and then as their ally.

While she wasn't able to triumph against Haphaestus and died during the fight, Noriko Null was later able to use the research of Talas Khanos to provide a genetic cure to extend the Lampyrian lifespan from 2 to 10 years.
