Who is Ellis?[]

Ellis is one of the four playable characters in Left 4 Dead 2. He is 23 years old and is from Savannah, Georgia. Before the zombie infection Ellis was a mechanic, loved beer and had a love life. Ellis doesn't have a full grasp on reality and acts as if he is immortal. In the past he says that he is always trying to impress his friends and continues to do so with his new found friends from the game. While he is friendly to the other three characters he is often met with either insults or being treated like a child for his optimism. One of the most memorable aspect of Ellis is for his long winded stories about him and his buddy Keith and their adventures together, though the stories are often cut short by one of the other characters.

"Man, all this mud reminds me of my friend Keith. Yeah, he was goin' to build a shack once, to live in and all, and I know most people here, they build houses and they become shacks, but Keith, he was about jumpin' right to the shack stage. But he had no wood. So he got some mud and was makin' what we were all thinkin' was gonna be these adobe bricks, you know, like when them people out west made bricks and shit? Well, he had mud and..." - Ellis

Win-Loss Record: 0-1

Winter 2010 Contest - Gear Division - 13 Seed

  • Gear Round 1 --- Lost to (4) Commander Shepard, 15987 [24.21%] - 50052 [75.79%]
  • Extrapolated Strength --- 117th Place [15.06%]

Ellis had the markings of a weak character, he's from an ensemble cast on a game that isn't really geared towards GameFAQs users. Add the fact that Commander Shepard just had Mass Effect 2 released and things weren't looking good for Ellis. Still no one was expecting Ellis to get tripled by Commander Shepard as he quickly became on the wrong side of one of the biggest blowouts of the contest. People thought he would have some strength considering that Louis and Zoey weren't completely humiliated in the vote-in.
