As of Episode 1, Eliot's personality is somewhat unclear. His love interest is evidently Chloe, frequently texting her and, towards the midpoint of Episode 1, even asking her out on a date.
From his words it seems that he is a kind individual although he is not above making fun of the drama kids for Chloe's attention.
Unlike Chloe, he seems to have a hard time saying what he actually feels. When Chloe talks to him about the reason she wants to go to the viewing of "The Tempest", he unconvincingly agrees that he was thinking that too, not telling her that he was thinking of it as a date.
When he brings up how Chloe is missing Chemistry, he backs off when she tells him that she will talk later. It is unlikely that he is willing to confront Chloe either.
The following is what Chloe Price wrote about Eliot in her journal:
As far as Blackwell students go, Eliot Hampden is pretty not terrible. He hangs out with some of the douchers sometimes, but I get the sense that he's mostly a lone wolf. Like this chick.
Similar to my class schedule, Eliot and I have history but no chemistry or drama. We hooked up a few times shortly after Dad died, but there wasn't really much to it. I think I was just bored. Or maybe a little lonely. Weird, I know.
I don't always get where Eliot's coming from. He's constantly asking to do stuff with me, which is nice, but I'm not sure we have that much in common anymore. Sometimes when we talk it seems almost like he's studying me.
I can't tell if he actually wants to be friends or just get in my pants. I guess I should be flattered either way, but I'm also not sure how much I care. Sorry, Eliot.
Eliot is first seen outside Blackwell, he asks Chloe how she is and comments on Chloe going to the old mill the previous night saying that "people are talking about it". Eliot then asks if Chloe wants to see the Tempest with him. Chloe can either reject or say maybe. Eliot seems disappointed in either way since Chloe doesn't see it as a date.
Later, Eliot texts Chloe while she is with Rachel asking her why she wasn't in chemistry class, mentioning the confrontation with Drew and the fact that people are talking about it. He backs off when Chloe only replies to his texts with "yo, let's talk later".
- Chloe Price - Despite acting awkward around Chloe and his obvious romantic feelings, the two remain friends.
- Chloe Price - It is mentioned in Chloe's character note on Eliot that they "hooked up" after William had passed away, but it was clear that she did not reciprocate his or any romantic feelings during this time.
