The Wilson Beacon

Ellida Parker
Ellida is a senior who has been devoted to The Beacon for several beautiful, news-filled centuries. She is excited to be at the helm of this fine paper alongside her best pal, Maya Wilson, for their final year. Ellida's favorite song is Chickenhead. On rare occasions, for people who write exceptionally good articles, she will hum a couple bars in a dark locked closet.
