* ChefOfIron: Eliot is well versed in fighting with kitchen utensils. ''Especially'' if you insult his appetizers.



* CrypticBackgroundReference: We never learn ''what'' Eliot did when he worked for [[spoiler: Damien Moreau]]. This is almost certainly for the best. We're also still waiting to find out about [[NoodleIncident the monkey]].

* MasterOfDisguise: Hey, when you're a grifter, you can't not be one.



* HairTriggerTemper: A man spilled coffee on his shirt; Eliot knocked out a few of his teeth. Sterling walked into a bar; Eliot threw him over a table.
