Elena Neves was a patrol officer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil who assisted Luke Hobbs and the Diplomatic Security Service in tracking down Dominic Toretto and Brian O'Conner. She is personally requested by Hobbs since he realizes she is the only officer who isn't on Hernan Reyes' payroll.
Elena was married to a Brazilian police officer who was murdered in the favelas. Soon after his murder she joined the Brazilian police force as well.
Elena is a member of the local police force in Rio. She is involved with the search for Dominic Toretto and Brian O'Conner as Hobbs requests an officer who has knowledge of the area as well as the ability to translate Portuguese. Hobbs also believes that, due to her past, she is cannot be turned or bought by Reyes. During the chase scene, she has an opportunity to shoot Dominic, but elects not to. She retrieves a silver necklace the Dominic leaves behind - a necklace that belonged to Letty. When Dominic returns to take the necklace back from Elena, they reveal a bit of their past; Elena is a police officer because her husband, a former police officer, was killed in action at the hands of the cartel.
At the end of Fast Five, she begins a relationship with Dominic. In the end they are seen together holding hands as they visit Brian and a very pregnant Mia Toretto.
Fast & Furious 6
In Fast & Furious 6, she and Dominic are in a seemingly loving relationship, living together in the Canary Islands in Spain. When Luke Hobbs visits Dominic's house with photos of Letty alive and well, she urges Dominic to go with Hobbs to find Letty, claiming that if it were her late husband in the photos, she would go as well. While she sees almost no action during the film, she helps Jack (Brian and Mia's baby) escape to safety.
At the end of the movie, she is seen with a police badge around her neck as she accompanies Hobbs to Los Angeles with the delivery of full pardons to Dominic and the entire crew. Elena accepts that Dominic has chosen to be with his former lover Letty as she is respectful of his family-driven values.
Elena makes an appearance in Furious 7. She is seen speaking with Hobbs at a precinct. As she leaves the office to her car, he gives her a letter of recommendation. Hobbs then engages in a fight with Shaw and Elena offers support. Shaw throws a timed explosive near Elena but Hobbs grabs her. The explosion sends them flying out the window. Hobbs saves her but gets severly injured after landing on his back on top of a car.
Elena is highly perspective and sees details that don't fit into a criminal's M.O. One example was when she questioned the motives for Dominic Toretto and Brian O'Conner killing DEA federal agents when their crimes were often minor heists that often did not result in killing the truck driver they're heisting. From this, she deduced they were framed.
- She developed feelings for Dom from the moment they met - presumably because of their grief connection.
- She joined the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) at the end of Fast & Furious 6, but resigns at the beginning of Furious 7. But she applied for another job elsewhere, evidenced by the fact Hobbs gave her a letter of recommendation.
