Eli is a convert to the Faith -- a man with a dark past and a nasty reputation as a bandit and a killer. Eli found himself called to the King of Life by way of Sister Anna Patience, an older woman who nursed him back to health after he was left for dead in the mountains by the "men" he'd ridden with for the past ten years. Eli has done many, many things for which he now realizes he must atone. He may burn in hell either way, but the King has told him that he has to try.
After he got his strength back, Eli traveled to Bridal Falls shocked the Temple by asking to serve as Dog. The Temple instructors shocked the Temple (and Eli) even further by saying yes.

Eli's coat is actually just his old leather duster -- Sister Anna told him it was lost, but it showed up in a package a few weeks before he was sent out as a Dog -- the duster is still there, but covered by patchwork cloth. It's not much to look at (Sister Anna is stone blind), but it's quite a wonder to touch.
Eli has spent more time on the trail than most folks have spent sleeping -- he doesn't like or hate it -- it's just the way things are. These days he doesn't even bother naming his horse.
