Elisabeth is the last known remaining Blanctorche, a French family who use the strange combat style called Shining Fists and supposedly protect the innocent. Ash Crimson was a childhood friend of hers, as they were raised in the same mansion together. Elisabeth used to be his older sister figure, until a mysterious fire burned down the mansion and many of her clan members were killed. As the last Blanctorche, she lives near the remains of her family's home with her butler, Jacques.

She invited Benimaru Nikaido and Duo Lon to France to reveal that she knows of the betrayal of Ron and the burning of the Hizoku village. They inform her of Ash's theft of Chizuru's mirror and she decides to join them. With the trio banded with the interest to take down Ash, they form the Rival Team and she eventually scolds Ash for seeming to forsake their mission. Though surprised by the youth's new powers, she swears to stop him in her team's ending.

Before meeting with Duo Lon and Shen Woo, she revisits the burned down mansion where she and Ash spent their childhood with a handful of photographs from the area in her hand. During her meeting with her guests, she becomes aware of their intents to join the King of Fighters tournament with her and Ash's location in Paris. Although she just missed him, Elisabeth knows that he was there and fortifies her will to stop him. She reunites with Ash in the final act of the tournament only moments after Ash erases Saiki from existence. She yells her protest to his selfish decision, stating that she wanted to bring Ash back home with her. When he disappears with his apologies, Elisabeth mourns over the only memento he left behind: his headband.

Elizabeth obviously isn't the most exciting female to come from SNK, but she gets some respectable points as a stylish and "classy" female fighter in KOF. Her weapon of choice and moveset in KOF XI is unique to the series and offers a nice change of pace to your typical fireball spammers and karate dudes.

I thought Elizabeth's outfit and color scheme in KOF XI was solid... and to be honest, I was actually disappointed that she was changed to so drastically in KOF XII and KOF XIII. Why doesn't she even use her baton in combat anymore?!? -__- Makes no sense. That said, I think most players prefer her KOF XI version. Something about her outfit, color scheme, and moveset in KOF XII/XIII struck me as boring. I even like her hair better in KOF XI.... I think I'll go play KOF XI now.
