"Necessity is the originator of invention, and that monster is my necessity for inventing, of which I am the originator!"

Ellegaard the Redstone Engineer, more commonly referred to as Ellegaard or Ellie, is a Redstonist, a member of The Order of the Stone and a major character in the first season of Minecraft: Story Mode. She is voiced by Erin Grey Van Oosbree "Grey DeLisle-Grey Griffin".



Ellegaard has brown hair that curls at the sides of her head and pale skin. Her armor has a brown/black tinge to it and is gold around the collar and torso. She has brown pants and dark red boots. When she is not wearing armor, she wears a white shirt under a brown blazer with dark reddish-brown pants and black shoes. She formerly wore a red helmet as well as steampunk goggles.


Ellegaard is arrogant but very intelligent and holds a grudge against Magnus and Ivor, unless Magnus dies if Jesse chooses his armor then Ellegaard misses him.



Ellegaard does not hold much respect for Jesse when the two first meet. However, as the game progresses, she notices his/her talent as a leader, and even offers Jesse her armor. If Jesse chooses her armor, Ellegaard is struck down by the Wither Storm, and is mourned with Jesse along with the rest.


Olivia greatly respects Ellegaard as a Redstone Engineer and as an inspiring figure. She thinks highly of Ellegaard's opinion about her. Ellegaard, on the other hand, often acts cold and prickly towards Olivia, although she does offer her a position as her assistant.


Axel and Ellegaard do not interact much during the story. However, when Ellegaard and Magnus disagree, Axel usually takes Magnus's side, which greatly annoys Ellegaard.

Reuben (Pig)

Ellegaard feels that Reuben is a very adorable pig. She appears to be saddened at his death, if she is alive when the Wither Storm is destroyed.

Magnus the Rogue

Magnus and Ellegaard are often portrayed at odds, constantly arguing and disagreeing, much to the annoyance of the rest of the group. However, when one of them is killed by the Wither Storm, their feelings toward the other are considerably softened.

Gabriel the Warrior

Gabriel and Ellegaard, as members of the Order of the Stone, appear to be good friends. If Gabriel was saved in episode one, and the player sought out Ellegaard, the two will hug. If Ellegaard is still alive by the end of episode three, she'll suggest that she'll stay back at the cave to take care of Gabriel.

Soren the Architect

Soren and Ellegaard have a good relationship and are good friends as members of the Order of the Stone. If Ellegaard is hit by the Wither Storm, Soren immediately rushes to her side and tries to comfort her by saying that she will be okay. He is quite saddened by her death.


Ellegaard and Ivor are both members of the Order of the Stone, but when Ivor leaves the Order, the two do not keep in touch. When Ivor unleashes the Wither Storm, Ellegaard is shocked and horrified at his behavior, and strives to stop the monster that he has created.

If Ellegaard lives, then she will be very hostile towards Ivor and will not forgive him for what he has done.


Killed Victims

The list below shows the victims Ellegaard has killed:

Killed By

If Jesse chooses to take Ellegaard's armor when she and Magnus offer theirs, she gets killed when the Wither Storm hits her into a tree, due to her not having armor to protect herself.
