According to Ezeckiel and Ichijou, she was a human with some truly angelic traits.
Now as a spirit sealed inside the Boosted Gear, Ellen takes the shape of the Juggernaut Drive version of the Scale Mail armor with crimson armor with claws, demonic wings and more animalistic characteristics, such as fangs and organic body parts. Once part of her seal was removed, it was shown that Ellen still can retain her human form, but being for so long in Juggernaut Drive have taken a immense toll in it, as she now takes the shape of an unkept form of her original self.
Not much is known of Ellen's personality prior her death, but Ezeckiel claims that she was an extremely dutiful, yet gentle woman, seeking good in everything and taking care of her family like a saint.
Now as a spirit sealed inside the Boosted Gear, the grief and sadness she feels for her unexplicable death consumed the very fraction of her soul, making her being in a constant state of uncontrollable rage and hatred, unable to form coherent sentences and constantly trying to take over Ichijou's body.

Once dead, part of Ellen's soul would eventually transfer and be stored inside the Sacred Gear, filled with so much grief and sorrow she would eventually succumb to them and become herself the curse of the Juggernaut Drive, becoming one of Ichijou's most recurrent and persistent antagonists.
Ellen first appeared during the events of Volume 3. During his training in Mt. Issei, Ichijou would eventually succumb to his own grief and give in to the Curse of the Juggernaut Drive, which in reality was Ellen trying to take control over his body.The curse would eventually be ceased by Issei's daughter, Yagura Gremory, and vanished for a while.
She would make her second appearance during the events of Volume 8, against Evelyn Livan Lucifer. Forced to go under pressure against her, he would almost give his body so that he could defeat the daughter of the morning star. Fortunately, Ophelia was able to again defeat her and put her to sleep for a while.
In the events of Volume 10...
