1- She was born... just like that

I'll start this saying... sprites are different from the rest of the characterkinds that populate the Webcomic World. Their origin is different(sprites are generated from game data, rather than), their aging is different(in fact, they don't age at all) and their limited resolution and constant ratio resizing is usually seen as unsettling.

2- She did work as a maid to pay for Acting School.

Just because you were a maid in a game doesn't mean you'll be starring in a webcomic about that game, and Ella had to show her work! Unfortunately, Acting School ain't paying itself, and getting a job when your wardrobe is composed only of French maid outfits isn't easy. Couple that with the way French maids are seen through the internets and... it was an awkward job. But she survived. And even managed to clean a couple of houses!

3- She once dated a PC

Player Characters... while NPCs sit around saying the same lines over and over, PCs are obsessed with missions, quests, sidequests and, of course, slaying monsters! When would there be time for Ella in that routine?

4- Her feet size is 2

It... just popped in my head. I never understood foot sizes, anyway. Are they, inches?

5- She was an active member of PeTS

Again, sprites just work different from usual characters, with dynamic designs and usual aging and art evolving, so it happens that they get the short end of the stick. In fact, sprites are just above stick people and cut-paste models in the workplace hierarchy. Those who can't get some training to enhance their form-changing licenses to adapt into other styles usually are forced to find other means of sustenance, and unfortunately many jobs require more than two frames of movement to be performed.

6- Her webcomic was the #1 Sprite Comic for two entire weeks!

"Finished Story Unabridged" was one of the first sprite comics to use the sprites of the "Finished Story" franchise, and also the longest running sprite comic with an actual ending. No one knows what the author has been working with after finishing his work, and since this comic is obviously fictional, I'm sure it doesn't matter besides reinforcing the fact that Ella Maid was a starlet of the webcomic show-business.

7- She was centerpiece for the "PixelGals" magazine five times.

We've seen she was voted "Sexiest 80s Game Character", and we're sure Theo owns every one of those issues as well. She was hot. She is hot, actually, seeing that sprites don't age. Soon enough she's going to inaugurate the concept of a "GILF".

8- Her biggest dream... she's living it already!

Life as a star, especially a hot secondary character ascended to fanservice provider, is hard and takes its toll on someone. So for long Ella dreamed of leaving it all behind and taking a "normal" path of life. She didn't expect children so soon, and surely once in a while a persistent fan finds out where she lives or what is her phone number, but in general this is the peace and quiet she's longed for.
