My story can never be told. I write it over and over, wherever we find shelter. I write of what I cannot speak, the truth. I write all I know of it, then I throw the pages to the wind. Maybe the birds can read it.
— Eleanor.

Eleanor Webb is a character seen in Byzantium.


Early Life

Ella was born in a brothel to Clara Webb , her father is unknown. The brothel had rules about babies, that they were not allowed; so Clara tried to killed her, but she couldn't. Clara had left her at the North Haven Private Orphanage. She unanimously left gold for upkeep. At the orphanage, she led a simple life.


When she was sixteen, it seems as if Ruthven had decided to adopt her. While walking through the hallway, he told her about her mother and what was stolen from him. He then raped her and minutes later, Clara had killed him and she took Ella to the healing shrine.


Ella had written the story of her life once more, and Robert kept finding her story and he saw her. Ella then goes to him and they began to speak. Ella was invited back to his home and he allowed for Ella to kill him. After going back to her home, she stumbled onto Clara, after killing Werner . They then packed and moved. They made their way to Hastings . Clara went out to get money while Ella went to a restaurant and played a song on the piano. Ella met Frank who was working there. Later, she walked under the promenade and saw Frank waiting for her. Ella them met up with Clara and her new client Noel. They went back to his home. Noel had became Clara's boyfriend, so the hotel became their new home. Ella later enrolled in the local school. Ella had accidentally made Frank crash an scrapped his arm. She then took him back to his home and he was immediately taken to the hospital. She then went to see him; she then was formally introduced to his mother.

From the Old French form of the Occitan name Aliénor. It was first borne by the influential Eleanor of Aquitaine (12th century), who was the queen of Louis VII, the king of France, and later Henry II, the king of England. She was named Aenor after her mother, and was called by the Occitan phrase alia Aenor "the other AENOR" in order to distinguish her from her mother.
