Love Live! is a Japanese multimedia project co-developed by ASCII Media Works's Dengeki G's Magazine, music label Lantis, and animation studio Sunrise. The story follows a group of nine schoolgirl friends who become idols in order to save their school from shutting down. Love Live initially launched in the August 2010 issue of Dengeki G's Magazine and went on to produce music CDs, anime music videos, two manga adaptations and multiple video games.

Eli is of Russian ancestry, from her grandmother. She therefore sometimes uses the Russian word "хорошо" (pronounced "harasho"), which means "good" or "okay." She has a younger sister named Alisa Ayase. In one episode, Eli disclosed to Umi that her family has been living abroad since they were little and haven't really adapted to the lifestyle in Japan yet. As seen in photos displayed in Eli's room, her mother and grandmother were both ballerinas. This is perhaps what influenced Eli herself to try ballet herself when she was younger.

As the former student council president, the her classmates at Otonokizaka High School see Eli as the perfect role model. Her juniors, especially, admire Eli and refer to her as Eli-senpai as a sign of respect. However, Eli's responsible nature paints her as having as a cold and strict personality. She appears rather stoic and skeptical in the early episodes, but it is shown that Eli is actually very kind and caring towards people who are close to her, like her little sister.
