Elena Fisher is an American journalist, TV personality and foreign correspondant appearing in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. She is the female lead of the series. By the end of Uncharted 3 she is married to Nathan Drake. Elena is voiced by Emily Rose, who also provides her motion capture.
Elena gained fame by taking part in a reality show on TV, and she eventually began hosting one of her own. Her TV show is successful and it airs on a premiere cable network, yet despite this, it still has a small budget. Because of this, Elena hosts the show herself, while her producers manage costs.
Elena is a bright and self-reliant investigator of historical mysteries. After coming in second on a popular survival reality show, Elena parlayed her 15 minutes of fame into hosting a cable adventure/archaeology show, "Uncharted." She is a true survivor with an array of unusual skills, most of them learned while researching and hosting her program.
Despite having a never-give up approach to life, she has yet to find the big story that will put her on the map as a serious journalist. It was when her show funded an expedition to recover Sir Francis Drake's coffin, buried at sea off the coast of Panama centuries ago, that Elena and Fortune Hunter, (and future husband), Nathan Drake were launched into an adventure beyond expectations, that threw them together into a fight for survival. By Uncharted 2 though, Elena graduated from tabloid reporter to a legitimate investigative journalist, and now tracks stories in some of the most dangerous and war-torn corners of the world. She is still as stubborn and tenacious as Drake is, and determined to such a degree that it is both her greatest virtue and her greatest fault.
