Elgar Vankin was an avant-garde artist who disappeared during the Vanishing and was a close friend and purported lover to Lee Wilson Seward. After the war, Vankin lived in Tangiers, Morocco along with Seward and Mimi Tabor. Both Tabor and Vankin eventually moved to New York, where they in fell in with Sander Cohen.[1] When they saw Seward again, they began speaking of a coming utopia with an almost-religious fervor. Seward never saw them again after their disappearance in 1946. Their eventual fate in Rapture (as well as BioShock's future story) remains unknown.
