Ellison was disfigured since birth; one of his arms was too long and one of his legs was too short. Nevertheless, he had people who looked after him, but never had a mistress before Melitta Wallenberg came into his life. His lover was beautiful but one night she asked him if he still would love her if she wasn't as beautiful. Ellison answer was yes, and Melitta showed her true face as one of the ugly Nosferatu.
Ellison wanted to recoil from that dreadful sight, but thinking of his own malformed flesh he did not refuse her. As a reward, she gave him the Embrace. Ellison was soon initiated into the world of the Kindred as the pair left together and traveled through many places before they came to the city of Berlin. Prince Gustav wanted to deny them their right to stay; but the pair had Wilhelm to thank for their permanence in the domain.
While Melitta was crushed under a collapsed sewer section during World War II (and has been in torpor guarded by her lover ever since), Ellison has become one of the most influential, if not the most influential, Cainite the city, supplying the both princes of Berlin with priceless information.
