To Be Beautiful
In the second story of the first book, when walking home from school, a girl named Sarah finds a robot inside a car trunk in the junkyard. After taking her home and cleaning her up, she activates her. The robot introduced herself as Eleanor and promises to Sarah to grant her every wish to show her appreciation for Sarah's kindness. Sarah told to Eleanor that she wanted to be beautiful. Eleanor promised to Sarah to make her wish come true. She gave Sarah a necklace and told Sarah to never take it off. Then as Sarah goes to sleep every night, Eleanor surgically cut off Sarah's bodyparts and replaced them with metal junk which looked as normal body parts thanks to the necklace's cloaking technology, which made Sarah look more beautiful. However, in school, after Sarah's necklace accidentally falls off her, she sees what Eleanor had done to her. She goes home to find Eleanor, but after finding bags filled with her cut bodyparts in the garage, she sees Eleanor who after pressing a button on her own necklace, which looked identical to Sarah's, took the appearance of a pre-surgery Sarah. Taking her identity, Eleanor leaves Sarah to crumble into a mess of junk and die.
Eleanor is indirectly mentioned when Detective Larson brings up that Sarah crumbling into junk left several girls in the school traumatized. It's said that "Sarah" disappeared.
When Jake tries to save some trash from being dragged inside Afton's Amalgamation, he sees Eleanor, who jumps and punches him. Eleanor sucked out the evil from Jake (which was in fact pieces of William's soul) and after finishing, winked at him and threw herself backwards into the Amalgamation. She was slowly being integrated into the creature as the story went on. After it was said that she was fully integrated, Eleanor isn't mentioned until the story's climax. As Larson and Afton prepared to battle, Eleanor jumped out of the Amalgamation and started crawling towards a vent. Afton pleaded Eleanor to return, but she ignored him and entered the vent. Afton's Amalgamation is soon destroyed by the Puppet, killing William. Jake realises that William wasn't the only thing controlling his Amalgamation, and that the other creature was worse.
Eleanor appears as a homeless girl that was about to beat up by some Unnamed Drug Dealers before being saved by Jake. However, this isn't revealed until Epilogue 10.
Eleanor introduces herself as Renelle. Jake explains he "protected" her from the drug dealers, for which Renelle thanks him for, and explains that she's not afraid of Jake's appearance because the real monsters are the ones who take advantage of others. She recounts her backstory, of how her father became obsessed about his work after her mother's death, eventually kicking her out after she stole some money. Renelle realises she still misses and her father and Jake promises that he will help her.
Larson sees a picture of Eleanor and a girl while investigating the numerous disappearances related to a mysterious ball pit. He also analyzed a man named Dr. Talbert, who specialized in studying a silver liquid called Remnant. He decided to visit Talbert to figure out what this all means and what the Stitchwraith has to do with it.
Meanwhile, Jake and "Renelle" visit her father's house, and the man turns out to be no one else than Talbert himself. As Jake looks through the house, he sees a picture of Talbert and Dr. Phineas Taggart, the man who created the Stitchwraith and got killed by it. Another picture was of Talbert and his daughter, except she didn't have brown hair and blue eyes like Renelle did; She had black hair and brown eyes. Larson enters Talbert's house just in time to see Renelle change into the girl in the picture.
Suddenly, he saw a vision of Eleanor. He realises she is a twisted little girl who was corrupted into an evil entity that fed off people's suffering. He was so appalled by her evil he tried to shoot her with his gun, but lost consciousness before managing to do it, only whispering her name. Within the mindscape, he saw several visions that show Eleanor is the mastermind behind some of the events that have happened in the series. She was the one who gave the Plushtrap Chaser his human eyes and teeth. She was the one torturing Delilah, not her doll Ella like she thought. She was holding down Pete after he was hit by a truck in Step Closer to perform an operation on him. She was the evil entity that was helping William Afton and jumped out of his body. She was also somehow related to the events in Hide and Seek and was the one who pushed Sam under the train in Blackbird.
Meanwhile, back in reality, Dr. Talbert hugs Eleanor, who was impersonating his daughter. Jake realises she was the evil entity helping Afton or at the very least had the true threat inside of her. He pushes her against the wall, but Eleanor uses her illusion powers to make it look like he stabbed her. Talbert pulls out a gun and shoots Jake, destroying the Stitchwraith's battery pack and disabling the animatronic. Jake watches at Talbert gives his "daughter" some Remnant and realises this was Eleanor's plan all along - She wanted Remnant to become more powerful and eternal.
Eleanor melts away her disguise, revealing her true form.
After Larson, travelling trough the memory world, finds the ballpit and jumps in it, he's taken to another memory, set in a junkyard. Here, Eleanor jumps out of a broken car and attacks him, but he manages to throw her into a trash compactor, weakening her in real life. Larson wakes up and catches a glimp of Eleanor's true form, an heinous and horrendous mannequin-shaped creature with tendrils made of blood coming out from get mouth, but he's then soon forced back into the memory world by her. Eleanor fights Larson again in a garage with boxes full of Christmas decorations, but is once again defeated by him, who defends using paperweights and a candelabra, and again in a bedroom with a Freddy Fazbear poster, where she jumps out of a closet and is hit by Larson with a bat. They have a final showdown in a factory building, where Eleanor seems to prevail over the detective.
In the real world, Jake has managed to get up and is getting closer to her. Eleanor attempts to keep him away with her tendrils, but Larson stops her by holding her down and strangling her. Jake uses his energy to heat her animatronic body until it burns, and then confines Eleanor into one of her memories, rendering her inoffensive and allowing Larson to wake up again. Eleanor's burnt up robotic body lays inanimate.
Although she may initially appear to be gentle, thankful and sweet, this is just a disguise she uses to earn people's sympathy. She's actually an evil and manipulative creature, who tends to lie and deceive, and shows sociopathic behavior, treating everyone as a tool to reach her goals. She likes to tease and mock her adversaries, winking at Jake after absorbing the evil contained inside the Stitchwraith, and telling Sarah she made her wish come true while she's dying. The only person so far she's shown to have some sort of positive relationship with is William Afton, as shown by her giving him the power to create the amalgamation and sustaining him when he was too weak. However it's unknown whether her collaborating with Afton was out of genuine affection towards him, or simply as a way to gain something for herself; It's very likely to be the latter, as she abandons him to die once she gained what she wanted.
- It's possible the device Eleanor was using was an illusion disk.
- However this was disproven in Epilogue 10, revealing that the necklace was infused with Remnant created by Dr. Talbert.
- It was previously speculated that she was one of the items infected by Andrew.
- That, however, was proven incorrect, as it was ultimately confirmed by Epilogue 11 that Eleanor is a supernatural entity and not a possessed animatronic.
- Eleanor is the only main antagonist in the franchise that has the role for the entire spin-off and not a single entry, while not being William Afton or an incarnation of him.
- It's possible she's the same entity as Spring Bonnie, however this may not be the case as the two while related to the Ball Pit, they have very different ways of hunting and tormenting their victims.
