Ellis is a dancer, who was raised by a troupe of traveling minstrels, being told that her parents had died when she was a baby. She entered the first Toshinden tournament after hearing of rumors that her father was still alive and would also be participating. However, all she discovered was that the tournament had been held illegally by a man from the Secret Society named Gaia.

However, she eventually learned that Gaia was her real father and received an invitation to the second tournament. The invitation also revealed that Gaia had been targeted for death for holding the first tournament by Uranus, one of his co-workers from the Secret Society. Although Ellis felt no emotions towards Gaia, she entered the second tournament to save him nevertheless. She was eventually reunited with him and at the end of the tournament managed to help destroy Uranus and the Secret Society. When the third tournament, hosted by the Organization, was announced, Ellis and Gaia learned they were being targeted by the Organization. They both entered the tournament, in order to help bring down the Organization.

Ellis is so anime. ^______^ She is too anime for me. Her color blend hurts my eyes... and then there's the issue with her blocky 3D model from the game. Ellis is so PS1 graphics. A true throwback of low PS1 poly-counts. 

Visually, she kinda looks like a fairy. No, she definitely doesn't look "cool" like quite a few of the other characters from Battle Arena Toshinden. I know a sleeper character when I see one. Her special moves & fighting style isn't nearly as exciting as others from the series. A design like this (especially with the art style) looks to appeal to younger girls. Hey, in the 90's maybe you had a younger sister or female friend back in the PS1 days... don't you think she needs a character to pick too? Ellis is so kiddy. She's not bad though. Honestly, I like her hairstyle. It's somewhat of an iconic 90's anime style hairdo... and it's fun to look at. Other than that, Ellis is BOTTOM TIER in the Toshinden series in terms of design. That's only because there are so many better designs than her in the series. Seriously, check'em out.
