Elias Kotz is a character in the Lilydale series.
Elias was a student at Hermann-Bose-Gymnasium where he excelled academically and as a sportsman in HBG's bilingual program. His imposting physique made him an exceptional athlete where he carried his experience on the field into his military training.

He was integral to establishing an anti-terrorism unit in India following the 2008 attack in Mumbai.
He has seen his share of battlefield horrors but is mentally resilient. He uses humour to disarm devices which manages his stress during operations. He's willing to place the teams safety over his own.
