Elliot Spencer is the Leverage tough-guy, but deeper and more damaged than anyone realizes. A former Special Operations soldier and later mercenary, Elliot has done unspeakable things which he tried to live down by becoming a "retrieval specialist." He expresses a deep dislike for firearms and prefers punishing hand-to-hand affrays although he is a deadly marksman. He projects a personna that is gruff, intollerant and rude, while a kind man on the inside.
"Sophie Devereaux" has so many aliases and personnas that it's an open question whether she remembers the name she was born with and whether or not she actually is the bored scion of British nobility. What is known is that her passion is acting and she is a perfectly horrid actress on the stage or in front of a camera...but the greatest actress in the world when on a "con."
