Eliseath was not born into slavery. Unlike many slaves, who know no better existence, Eliseath was born free to a tribe of Dalish elves which was raided by slavers. He watched his mother and sisters raped (you know, because that is what slavers do), and was then separated from his family and sold into the home of a Tevinter Magister. There he was trained to assist his master in his various intrigues. Assassination, infiltration, spying. He was treated well, but given his experiences, he viewed his condition in bondage to be an abomination, and initially, he viewed mages the same way. In fact, he viewed any exercise of power as being akin to an exercise of evil.
Then, his master got some new slaves, Elves from the Ferelden city of Denerim. This, he would not tolerate. The taking of slaves under the guise of a quarantine was not just slavery, it was dishonest slavery, and the enslavement of those who were ostensibly free from bondage and who had a reasonable expectation of safety. That struck him as simply being too wrong for him to stand idly by. So he escaped. There may or may not have been a few severed carotid arteries along the way. He made his way to Denerim, intent on assassinating the slavers in their sleep and found the work already done. Of course, shortly thereafter, the city came under siege by a dark spawn horde and the walled Alienage was an internal strongpoint. Needless to say, with all of those defenseless people and no where else to go, he helped in its defense.
The siege of Denerim however, changed his outlook. In addition to working with an Antivan mage, one Aitor Extebarri, and seeing the exploits of several other mages including Wynn in the city’s defense, he could no longer view mages, or anyone really, as some sort of monolithic group. He also could not view power the same way he had before. He realized that he, in fact, had a certain power. Afterall, did he not possess more power than the otherwise defenseless residents of the alienage? Yes. He in fact did. What he came to realize is that power to its varying degrees and types is really just an expanded range of possible choices. An unarmed peasant has far fewer choices when a city is attacked than someone with weapons armor and training has, while the choices available to a mage are more expansive in number and the consequences can be greater in scope. The more choices there are, the greater the chance that someone will make a mistake and fuck things up by accident, and also the greater potential for corruption. However, the same is true in reverse. The potential to do real concrete good in the world is also greater. As a result, he redirected his ire against those who use their power to harm others for their own gain, or who would stifle those who would use their power to good purpose.
