Ellen Strucker is the ex-wife of Otto Strucker, the mother of Reed Strucker, the mother-in-law of Caitlin Strucker, and grandmother of Lauren and Andy Strucker.

Early LifeEdit

One year prior to the beginning of the series, Ellen joined ReedCaitlinLauren and Andy at the bowling alley for a family outing. After a pitiful attempt by Caitlin, she looked to Ellen asking if she was sure that she didn't want to give it a try. Ellen declined her offer, then telling her son that the love of bowling was one of many things that she and his father didn't have in common. Unfortunately, their peaceful and joyous outing was interrupted by a dispute one lane over involving a father and his mutant daughter and an obnoxious group of people that were teasing the young girl because of her mutation. Between her father's yelling and the cruel group of individuals making fun of her, the girl temporarily lost control of her ability as she screams out, causing a huge gust of wind to form. This is when Reed stepped in, and informed the father to take his daughter and leave before the situation worsened.

Season 1Edit

In rX Ellen is brought in for interrogation by Agent Weeks of the Sentinel Services after her grandchildren, Lauren and Andy destroyed their school's gymnasium, which was being reported as an act of terrorism. Under the suspicion that she was potentially involved in her grandchildren's escape and that she knew of their whereabouts, they saw it best to bring her in. She informed the Agent that nothing her grandchildren did was intentional as they would never attack anyone. With phone records from Ellen to her son Reed, Agent Weeks suspected her involvement some way or another. though Ellen explained that she merely called her family to check in on them after seeing the incident that took place at their school on the news. The Agent then asked about her husband, who Ellen stated as being alone in Chattanooga. From there, Agent Weeks accused her of being a radical activist, looking back to her support for the mutant rights movement as well as her protest against the South African government. Ellen clarified that she marched against apartheid in 1984. They were oppressing all kinds of people, not just the mutants, she said.

In eXtraction, she's visited by her son and his wife for her to warn her about Sentinel Services going after her again leading Reed to tell her the truth about her estranged ex husband and that he died protecting him. She was left horrified learning that Otto deliberately made their son sick in order to make him a dormant mutant. She agreed to leave town although not with the rest of the family stating she would lay low with a friend although not before pointing Reed in the direction of someone who Otto had scientific ties to.
