Elisha was a farmer who lived with his parents. He was bald and carried a staff. He was dedicated to the mission of God, and he lived his life not in fear but faith, listening and obeying the commands given to him by God himself. Elisha was a real daring dude. He was not afraid of conflict, and he certainly wasn't conflicted about telling the truth- especially the truth about God and his plans.
