"I need to make my life count. It's all I could do. Really, it's all any of us could do. We are the endlings."
—Elton to Hope.[src]

Elton Ortiz is one of two tritagonists and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead: World Beyond. He is the son of Isaac and Amelia Ortiz and the brother of unborn Esmerelda Ortiz. He was a student and a karate instructor at the Campus Colony of Omaha, one of three cities part of the Alliance of the Three.

Overview

Thoughtful, analytical, and intellectually curious, fifteen-year-old Elton is both an utter innocent and a wise old soul. An orphan of the apocalypse, Elton is Zen-like and completely at peace with the statistical probability that humankind is only a few years from extinction.[2]

Pre-Apocalypse

Lincoln, Nebraska

Elton was born in 2005 in Lincoln, Nebraska to scientist parents Isaac and Amelia Ortiz. He was exposed to science at an early age and inherited his parents perception of the world with statistical probability and objectivity.

In early 2010, his parents became pregnant with their second child, Elton's little sister. Elton thought of baby names for his sister and decided that he wanted her to be named Esmerelda.

Post-Apocalypse

Lincoln, Nebraska

In fall of 2010, the outbreak went global. Early in the day, Elton was brought by his parents to his father's storeroom where he kept all of his fossils. Elton went to touch a tyrannosaurus-rex fossil, which worried his father and prompted Isaac to warn Elton to be careful. Elton asked if the fossils were older than his father, to which Isaac answered they were older than anything. Elton then saw a picture of a meteor taken by Isaac when he was 10 years old. His father then explained to Elton that a meteor was a rock from another planet in space and can come to other planets - either burning up in the air or crashing in the planet.

Isaac then elaborated it was a meteor that killed the dinosaurs. Amelia then worried the subject matter would be too dark for a child is age, and then had Elton feel her stomach as his baby sister was kicking. Amelia, however, got a text that her meeting at Nebraska State University had been pushed early, prompting her to leave. After Isaac warned her about the virus and police at the local hospital, Elton revealed he had decided to name his baby sister Esmerelda, much to his parents disagreement. His mother then left while his father brought him to his desk and taught him how to brush and clean a fossil.

Elton survived the outbreak and apocalypse at only five years old, but his parents died during the outbreak - making him an orphan of the apocalypse. In time he came to join the Campus Colony. He later became a karate instructor with a black belt in training. However, due to his scientific upbringing - he believes the human race, statistically, has a few years left before they go extinct.
