He has a wife and daughter, as well as a younger brother and sister.
The ‘ime’ in his name is pronounced like ‘crime.’
Ellohime grew up going on hunting excursions with his family and eating whatever they caught, including squirrels. Aside from that, he used to play video games such as Dark Castle and Ancient Art of War. He would play Nintendo console games when he visited his grandmother. As a teenager, he preferred RPGs and MMOs.
Prior to streaming, he was attending community college and had just completed his AA in Liberal Arts. He had not yet found a job and started playing an F2P MMO called Neverwinter. Although it was F2P, he still spent almost all of his remaining savings on the $200 Founder’s Pack. One of the perks to this Pack, was a 5-day early access to the game. He decided to join a guild with random people on the forum in order to gain experience and level up quickly. However, it turned out that it was actually easier to level up solo.
So, he broke off and managed to level up to 60 along with around 10 other people within the first two days.
He noticed that a few of the others were streaming their gameplays and decided to try his hand at it as well. This was his second attempt at streaming, but this time he attempted it on OBS. He started streaming as soon as he was set up. He started streaming at 04:00 AM on a Monday, when many other streamers were already asleep. He almost immediately gained ~400 viewers during that first stream. By that Sunday, he was partnered because he was averaging between 400 -2,000 viewers per stream. He had no idea that this was unusual, as he didn’t really watch other streamers or know much about streaming at that point. He only even applied for partnership because some of his viewers requested that he apply so that they could have resolution options. By the next month, he had earned his subscription button. This was in early 2013. His stream is not appropriate for kids.
Ellohime is estimated to have ~1,500 subscribers, which would minimally earn him $3,750 USD per month, excluding additional income from sponsorships, advertising, merchandise sales, tips and Twitch cheer bits.
While Ellohime doesn’t have set days on which he streams, he starts at 08:00 UTC and occasionally 18:00 UTC when he does stream.
There’s just going to be a group of people out there who are going to get big. And that’s because there’s… a lot of people streaming. On top of that, you might not be entertaining. You might just not have the chops to do the job.
