Character Interview: Elijah Figueroa

How do you like to spend your free time? I like watching my favorite show and sleeping when I can. I spend most of my time at work so I don't really have much free time.

What is your relationship with your immediate family members? Oh wow, that's a question. My mother is no longer alive and my father...Well, I assume he is also dead. I have my sister living with me since my mother's death. I'm my sister's legal guardian.
