From the holy symbol worn around his neck and the design on his shield, it is obvious that Elwood is follower of the deity Flyspamon.  Although around the temple he is known for his ability to draw rapt attention from his followers during his sermons, he prefers to spend more time away from the temple and live by example, not by preaching.

"Deeds, not words - that is how you show the true meaning of being a follower of Flyspamon"

When traveling, Elwood is usually attired in his chainmail and dons a dark blue cloak, holding a heavy mace in his right hand and carrying a shield with his left.
