She could also summon Negatones from the scattered musical notes using the pendant. However, after becoming Pretty Cure, she has lost her pendant and thus both of these abilities.
Ellen's alter ego is Cure Beat (キュアビート Kyua Bīto). She uses the light blue Fairy Tone Lary to transform. Her catchphrase is "Can't stop my heart's beat!". Is the love interest of Masamune Ouji.
