Eleanor took a liking to Richard, Marie Adams' husband, and in one scene, the two are making love in her shop. Their tryst is interrupted when a wolf is shot to death by Marie, which causes Eleanor to scream in pain. Later on, Eleanor and Richard engage in another illicit encounter at her shop; which ended with Eleanor turning heel and revealing herself as a werewolf to Richard, after which she attacked her lover and escaped.
At the film's climax, the evil Eleanor appeared in half werewolf form and went after Marie, who escapes in her car. Eleanor, and the rest of the cult, perished in the church fire at film's end.
- Eleanor's role was similar to Marsha Quist in the first Howling film; as they were both evil-she wolves who seduced and turned their married lovers. One big difference: Marsha survived in the end, Eleanor didn't.
