His suit wasn't the finest she had seen, nor was his vest as bright as most. Both coat and shirt seemed to fit too loosely, and his hair was just a bit disheveled. {{book ref|mb1|12}}

"His suit wasn't the finest she had seen, nor was his vest as bright as most. Both coat and shirt seemed to fit too loosely, and his hair was just a bit disheveled." {{book ref|mb1|12}} Elend's early life was spent rebelling against his father and the court in quiet ways. Fashion called for tight-fitting suits and neat grooming, so Elend contrived to look slightly sloppy. An idealist and dreamer who wanted to study and debate philosophy and law in preparation for his ascension to his House's title, with the idea of being able to get the Houses to band together and apply some pressure on the Lord Ruler to change some things. When Kelsier's crew overthrows the Lord Ruler, Elend realizes a long-foreseen successful skaa rebellion has arrived, and takes steps to curtail the violence, showing a surprising amount of bravery. He tried to put his ideals into law, but his own slightly lackadaisical manner worked against him. With some guidance and advice, Elend sharpened up his appearance and refined his mannerism to be more regal, putting forth an image as respectable as his character actually was.

After becoming the Emperor, Elend went from being an idealist to realizing that sometimes harsh measures and force are required to save someone who doesn't know better. He felt guilty at the erosion of his ideals, and felt sometimes to be a hypocrite in his moments of self-doubt, but he trusted himself to pick the best course in the crisis they were in.
