Ellen Flynn is a photographer who lives in New Orleans. She also lived in New Orleans for a time. She is a Cambion and is the daughter of Arcadius.
Ellen was born in 1854. She was conceived and given birth too in a mere matter of minutes after her mother was impregnated by Arcadius. She killed her mother during child birth. Ellen lived throughout the ages, aging extremely slowly as she did. She didn't need to attend school as she was born with all the knowledge in the world, this likely being a result of her being a Cambion. Years ago, in the present day, she befriended a young Alaric Saltzman. When she left, he erased his memory of her to "protect him."
Ellen can be a tad emotional at times. This is because of everything that she's lost. She's never met her birth mother and she believes everyone in Mystic Falls doesn't respect her or fears her. But when she's calm, she can be very approachable and somewhat friendly. This is especially true when she's around Karis.
Ellen appears as a beautiful African American woman in her twenties. She has long curly dark brown hair. Her eyes usually appear to be hazel colored but turn black when she's using her powers.
