Ellie is courageous, showing no sign of weakness even if in the face of a foe she knows she cannot defeat. As she has grown, she has suffered great trauma, but every time she is knocked down she gets back up again and stands her ground. In recent years she has grown very independent and actually prefers not to rely on others. Her once timid demeanour has escaped her and been replaced with a calm yet somehow stoic attitude. She will defend the ones she loves with her life, and is incredibly protective of them. In her time away from the world, she feels she has become more open minded. She has become very dutiful. She has become very good at concealing her true feelings and will use such to trick and manipulate people if necessary.
Ellie has intense trust issues and thus doesn't allow herself to make a lot of friends for fear of being hurt. She has adopted her mothers temper, meaning she can easily flick from relaxed to bloodthirsty and is incredibly paranoid. Her courage, though admirable at times, can also be reckless if she does not have the means to defeat whatever she is standing up to. Her life so far has been a tough one, and so her emotions are all jumbled, meaning she can be pretty emotionally unstable and very violent, especially when it comes to people she cares about. On top of this, she does not forgive easily, and does hold grudges. She does not often give second chances. Recently her paranoia has peeked, and it makes her rather restless, she has become increasingly anxious about people and their motives, meaning she finds most positive social interactions disingenuous. She is indecisive as of late. She battles with her own mind constantly and she can be very bitter. She can be a bit too casual about her own mortality. She is a bit too emotionless and can come off as cruel or rude. She has begun to expect the worst of people, so she comes off as pretty judgemental sometimes. Gerry is one of her weaknesses, the only person who can completely pierce through her cold exterior and make her rethink her choices. She would also lose it if anything ever happened to him. How reckless she can be for a thrill.
Ellie enjoys watching and listening to people and things. Observing the world as it goes on, but never really inserting herself in it. She likes knowing that those she cares about are safe, and is easily upset by the slightest dangers. She enjoys baking and cooking as well as singing, though she’d never sing in front of a crowd. Over time she has developed an interest in water, specifically the ocean. It can entrance her at times. She enjoys the thrill of having power over someone, controlling their fate. She has begun to enjoy hunting again. She is a bit of an adrenaline junkie, but has recently tried to counter this and instead taken up whittling.
+Loud Noises+Masks+Magic+Theodra+Most People+Overly-righteous people+Assumptions+Faking+
One thing Ellie has never gotten over is her jumpiness, meaning she is not a fan of loud and sudden noises. Her paranoia means she does not like suspicious characters, particularly people who wear masks. Ellie does not like magic in any form, divine or arcane, and there are only a few mages and blessed that she actually trusts to use it. She has a particular dislike for Theodra due to her history with her family, Gods are not exempt from her grudges. She either hates or dislikes anyone who isn't family or a close friend. She does not enjoy overly-righteous people. People assuming she is anything more than she says she is. Feeling as if she has to put up a front.
+Wolves+Failure+Drowning+Attachment+Losing Loved Ones+Trust+Weak+
Ellie isn’t too fond of wolves, and has many nightmares about losing the people she holds dear or being unable to protect someone she loves. She is afraid that she will contiguously watch people drown. She has become scared of attaching herself to the wrong people. Losing Leighton. Losing Segar again. Trusting people. Being Weak.

She officially becomes first mate of Ardaric’s crew. She travels to the sorrows and makes it out without a scratch. She forgives Reynard. Gerry leaves to find his family, leaving her feeling very alone. After getting herself into some awkward situations, she has a rather large falling out with Ardaric, but remains first mate none the less. More arguments with the crew and she decides she’s had enough and goes into hiding again. She returns to find Ardaric has broken into her house, and, after punching him in the face, is offered a position as a Royal Guard in Eldpoint. She sneaks into Stoltfar under the guise of a pilgrimage and is rather suddenly made to realise the full consequences of her actions. She becomes emotionally closed off, focusing on her job. She escorts Leighton to many places and stops him from being blown up by Aldris. She begins investing herself in Eldpoint more, and grows closer with its citizens. Her mouse is kidnapped and uncle threatened. She saves Leighton in the naval attack. She rescues Jocasta. She finds her voice again. House of Proctor is born. She goes to Lyon with a party and rescues Gilles. She becomes very close to him. She tangles herself in Aldris’ plots and schemes. Leighton sends her on a Solo mission back to Lyon where she almost loses her life but is saved by Marcus who then dies in her arms. She returns to find Leighton has gone off on his own somewhere but soon returns. Segar appears in Eldpoint and they reunite. Feeling energised by her now happier life, Ellie leads a party to Rosehill and following a small confrontation hits her head. She falls into a coma for three weeks. She returns to find her father is alive again and that Leighton is sick. Leighton’s father causes trouble.

The incident with boodmother, she falls out with Raigo, she makes plans to take a break. Gerry returns, she sort of makes up with Raigo, Raigo is killed, she isolates herself, she argues with Gerry, she grows more and more angry, her heart shatters, she begins to lose her sense of purpose or desire and starts picking up bad habits just to get a kick. She slowly becomes more and more impatient with politics and her role in the south, and confronts her feeling of being an outcast within her community. She starts spending more time doing things that she enjoys and begins the process of stepping down as captain. She moves back to Stoltfar and begins resuming her position there. Bennett shows up and she starts looking after him a little bit. They hike and find Axex in the mountains. After some things go down in Blackrush, Ellie agrees to escort a fragile Bennett to Varynhall with Axex. She begins growing attached to their little unit.
