The first reference to Dora's mom in the comic is when she sends a package to Dora at work.
She was not introduced as a character until after Dora invited Marten to meet her parents.
According to Sven, she may have a sister named Hilde.
Background[edit | edit source]
Physical Appearance[edit | edit source]
She is of Swedish ancestry. Dora described her as imagining "my head on Heidi Klum's body... (would) be close."
Education and Employment[edit | edit source]
Not much is known about Elssa's education or employment background. She apparently was a stay-at-home mom while Dora was growing up.
Personality[edit | edit source]
From the story arc where we first meet Dora's parents, she appears a bit oblivious - not even noticing the "it runs in the family" reference by Marten.
Elssa is an enthusiastic marijuana user.
Hobbies[edit | edit source]
According to the QC character Twitter feeds, she plays World of Warcraft in the same guild as Sven.
She apparently also likes to search for things on eBay as well.
