Ellen Silverman lived in the harsh, unforgiving and down-right dangerous conditions on Leiden-9, not the sort of life she envisioned for her family. All she wanted was a secure, stable environment where she could nurture the exceptional mental abilities that her daughter Lynn seemed to be developing.

Time on NewlandEdit

Eventually, her husband Ren told her about the opportunity to work on the Newland Transport and start a new life for them somewhere else. Ellen immediately agreed to the plan. It was on Newland that she met Max Dacher, an ex-Marine who had found her daughter hiding in the ship's reactor.

Aboard the Dark AthenaEdit

At some point, the mercenaries of the Dark Athena attacked the transport she was on. They dragged everyone aboard a different ship and she was separated from her family. Locked inside a cell and her family's fate uncertain, she has been left alone with her raving imagination.

While imprisoned on the Athena, she made the acquaintance of Riddick. With the use of parts acquired by Riddick, she made a vent tool which could be used by Riddick to move around the ship. She worries about her daughter, Lynn, despite Riddick's confirmation that she managed to evade the Dark Athena's mercs.

Following the prison riot, Ellen found Riddick in the vent, using a welding tool to remove the metal grating to free him. In the process, she was shot from behind by Jaylor, a psychotic prisoner intent on having his way with her.
