Dr. Eli Bash.

Elijah: Hebrew, "The Lord Is My God".

A basement-dwelling, binge-drinking eccentric, Doctor Eli Bash has suffered a recent and drastic reduction in living conditions after a break-up with his wife. His sudden and relative poverty has forced him to take the least desirable apartment in a lower-middle-class building predominantly populated by much younger people, such as Ben, Reagan, and Gene, and his pride is suffering from the indignity of his situation.

Eli's unpredictable and oftentimes volatile personality has earned him the caution, fear, and ire of most of his building's tenants, although he's demonstrably capable of being entirely pleasant.
