Thin, medium height. Should length hair. Elijah is dressed in tattered knee breeches, a waistcoat over his work shirt, and torn knee stockings that sag over his worn buckled shoes. He carries a dirty haversack over his shoulder that contains his only possession: a rolled up cloth draughts game, that he loves to play with his Pa.

Main character. This is a very active role, lots of running with his dog Jack. Will be dirty, barefoot. Takes two falls backwards in the dirt / grass.

The impossible adventure begins when Elijah sneaks out of camp to find his Pa: He is chased by a stupid guard, has a sword placed two inches form his face, plays draughts with General Washington, is captured by British soldiers with his Pa and faithful dog Jack.
