In the first game, the character Joel is tasked with escorting Ellie across a post-apocalyptic United States in an attempt to create a potential cure for an infection to which Ellie is immune. She is voiced by Ashley Johnson , who also provided motion capture for the character. While players briefly assume control of Ellie for a portion of the game, the computer's artificial intelligence primarily controls her actions, often assisting in combat by attacking or identifying enemies. Ellie reappeared as the sole playable character in the downloadable content prequel campaign, The Last of Us: Left Behind , in which she spends time with her friend Riley. Ellie is also the main character in the comic book prequel, The Last of Us: American Dreams , wherein she befriends Riley and has her first encounter with the rebel group the Fireflies.

I'm seriously getting tired of people making a big deal out of this kissing scene from the Left Behind DLC. People who are still in denial that this was anything less than romantic or simply the by-product of a post-apocalyptic world need to grow up. It's been confirmed by Neil Druckmann, his co-workers and the animator of the scene himself that Ellie and Riley were in love with each other and that the kiss was romantic, and it doesn't get much more canon than that. Go ahead and argue if you'd like, but it doesn't change what's fact. A wonderful character like ellie being gay shouldn't change your opinion of her - unless you're a homophobic asshole, of course.
