Ellis is a protagonist and one of the four playable characters in the video game Left 4 Dead 2.
Formerly a junior mechanic from Georgia, his world was changed when a zombie outbreak was let loose across the nation. Opting to survive the zombie apocalypse and rebuild the human race, he bands with other survivors in order to make this objective come true.
It is unknown what Ellis's whereabouts were before the events of Fusion, but it is assumed that he was separated from his group and made his way to the Fuse Research Facility by complete accident. To this day, it is not known if he came back in touch with his friends from his world.
Plot Involvement Edit
Ellis had a decent amount of activity throughout the event, notably developing a one-sided romance with Hua Mulan, and briefly interacting with the other participants throughout.
After the climactic battle against Ultibahara, Mulan gives him a farewell kiss, but tells him that they cannot be together because of her commitment to her home world.
Restless in Rapture Edit
It is assumed that Ellis was going about his daily life as a member of the Coalition before suddenly ending up in Rapture against his own will. It is known that in the gap between System Breakdown and Restless in Rapture, he became Cosmo's assistant.
It is also revealed in the event that sometime before being transported into Rapture, Ellis on one occasion accidentally spilled a cup of coffee on Revolver Ocelot's outfit.
Ellis was decently prominent throughout the event, though his interactions were mostly limited to with Carol Peletier, whom he grew a platonic, yet deep, bond with, due in part to the two of them coming from worlds with similar circumstances.
However, they still came into conflict, most notably during the climax when, upon recognizing one of the infected Little Sisters as a person from her home world, Carol would decide to grant a mercy kill, ending the Little Sister's life. While the rest of the group was somewhat disturbed, they decided to sweep it under the rug, believing there to be no time to call Carol out, while Ellis would decide to confront her himself and berate the others for doing so.
He also had an awkward conversation with Revolver Ocelot once the group would meet the Resistance against Handsome Jack for the first time, as it is revealed that not only are they both Coalition agents, the two of them have a small history together that is less dramatic than what one would think.
Civil War Edit
Ellis had a very limited presence within the event, spending a majority of the Coalition Civil War in a coma due to the explosion caused by Ilona that spread all throughout the Coalition HQ. His comatose form was observed by Junko Enoshima, who seemed to recognize him, despite the two having never met before that event.
By the end of the event, Ellis has awakened from his coma.
Slowly Dead Edit
This information will be elaborated upon further progress within the event.
System Breakdown Edit
Though he doesn't make an appearance within the actual event, he makes a speaking cameo in the aftermath, as seen when after Frank Castle and Cosmo are discussing the implications of the existence of Ilona in the Coalition HQ. After the conversation ends and they go their separate ways, Ellis looks at Cosmo in surprise, bewildered that there was a talking Russian dog.
Restless in Rapture Edit
After bidding farewell to Carol, reluctantly coming to terms that they are different people with different moralities, Ellis would return to his life as a Coalition member.
