Leech Lady.jpg
Name: Leech Woman
Gender: Female

Ms. Leech is 1 ft 7 in and weighs 2 lbs. She began as a young Swiss girl named Ilsa. Ilsa's father was an unloving Swiss ambassador. One night in 1902, while she and her father were in Paris, Ilsa traveled to the Theater Magic where she met her future husband André Toulon. Later, she is kidnapped by the slaves of the demon lord, Sutekh, and is rescued by André and his first six puppets (Retro Puppet Master).

Later in 1926, Ilsa (now named Elsa) and André go to Cairo, where André's (presumed 7th) living puppet, Mephisto, is burned to a crisp. An old merchant gives Toulon a new type of magic which Ilsa convinces André to learn from the merchant. In Berlin, Ilsa and André have four new puppets, Tunneler, Jester, Pinhead and Six Shooter. Tunneler, Pinhead and Jester are based on their friends: Joseph Sebastion (Tunneler), an American Soldier who was captured and forced to work in the salt mines by the Nazis; Jester, a book-keeper named Hans Seiderman who the Toulons liked for his love of jokes and who was shot to death by the Nazis; and Pinhead, a kindhearted man called Herman Strauss who was killed for smuggling food into a work camp (Six-Shooter's identity was never revealed).

Ilsa was murdered by Major Krauss when she tried to stop the Nazis from kidnapping André and the Puppets. André later went to a morgue with Pinhead and Jester, where they took the tissue from Ilsa's corpse. Back at their temporary camp, Andre injects the formula that he made from the tissue into the puppet of Ilsa he made for her, resurrecting her as a puppet. Toulon also fed a leech to the puppet, giving her its power.

In Puppet Master II, André's zombie form has Blade, Leech Woman, and Torch go to gather material for a new batch of fluid. Leech Woman is captured by an overweight woman, named Martha, and thrown into her fireplace and destroyed. Torch then set fire to the woman, killing her. Charles Band, however, mentioned that Leech Woman was saved and revived, but was not present in Puppet Master 4 or Puppet Master 5. Leech Woman's power is her ability to vomit venomous leeches (hence her name). In addition to her leeches, she wields a small knife. She is also the only female puppet before Bombshell and Comb Queen.
