Papa Ellery hasn't gotten any nicer in Fuse. In fact, he's gotten much worse. Not only is this guy still plotting to make the wretches into slaves for a New Eden, but he's also planning on taking his son's body. That's right, he wants to literally walk in Partridge's shoes.
But Ellery isn't very present in Fuse, mostly because he's on the verge of death. But he still plays an integral role, because of the archives Fignan has on him. We learn he's a hopeless romantic, and was a murderer from a pretty young age. Nice dude, huh?
