Ellen Mira Mathers is the secondary antagonist of the light novel and anime series Date A Live. She was introduced as the one of the main antagonists in Date A Live II and the main protagonist in Date A Live Encore 2: Ellen Mathers's Strongest Day. She is also called The World's Strongest Wizard and Adeptus 1. She is the secretary of Deus.Ex.Machina Industries's director Isaac Ray Peram Westcott, one of the company's Chief Executives.
She is voiced by Shizuka Ito in the Japanese version of the anime, and Trina Nishimura in the English dubbed version, both of whom also voice Benitsubasa.
Ellen holds her title of the Strongest Wizard with great pride. Due to her pride, she greatly underestimates many of her enemies, the best example of this being Tohka. Ellen already defeated her twice in her limited release Astral Dress, thus Ellen greatly underestimates Tohka's strength. This would backfire on her while fighting Tohka's Inverse Form. Ellen never goes directly to the combat during a mission, different from Jessica Bailey she nears her target to discover any possible information of her enemy. She always tries to discover their identity or any personal information, especially when Ellen is called by Westcott that he wants her to do some special mission, she is very loyal to Westcott.
Westcott is very tolerant with Ellen, if it were any other Wizard Westcott would have likely killed Ellen a long time ago. However, Ellen fails in some of the missions he attempts to see view the positive side to her actions. Even if her actions are honest mistakes, Westcott often plays them off or uses them as learning opportunities to protect her reputation. DEM Board of Members, Roger Murdoch tried to oust Ellen for his failure, when it happened Westcott ordered Ellen to cut off the arms of the DEM Board of Members, who had attempted to remove Westcott from the position of D.E.M Managing Director.
Unlike Westcott, who seemed interested in Shidou due to the powers of the Spirits in his body, Ellen has grown to greatly despise Shido. This was seen many times during their meetings, yet Shido is a "person of interest" to her boss, Mr. Westcott, so she curbs her temper and instead deals with him when ordered to. Living up to her title as "The World's Strongest Wizard," Ellen can easily defeat a Spirit with Limited strength and even managed to defeat Natsumi at full strength. Ellen is also one of the few Wizards that can use her powers without a Combat Realizer Unit, but it takes her a lot of concentration though.
Ellen is also the pilot of the airship Goetia.
