Bio: Mrs. Mulder, played by Rebecca
Toolan, is Fox Mulder's mother. Her character despite being around
for awhile is not clearcut. We are not even sure of her first
name -she is called Tina in Kitsunegari but on being hospitalised
in Herrenvolk her tag says she is Elizabeth Mulder.
The ever suffering Mrs. Mulder has seen much in her life. The
only surviving and not abducted member of Fox Mulder's family,
she has gone through a strained marriage and eventual separation,
a cold husband, a daughter's abduction, a son's antagonism, a
stroke and possibly an affair or two. Her husband asking her to
choose which child she loved less didn't endear him to her either
(Paperclip). Later William Mulder makes the choice himself
when he choses Samantha who is abducted in November 1973. It affects
Mrs. Mulder deeply and leads to her separation from William Mulder
and her vow that she would never again enter their summer residence
in Quonochontaug, Rhode Island.
She seems to have had a relationship with the Cigarette Smoking
Man as well. When the CSM leaves after they have a heated discussion
at the Mulder summer residence (Talitha Cumi), she suffers
a stroke and is taken to hospital after X, watching in the shadows,
calls 911. CSM appears in the hospital and gets her healed by
the alien bounty hunter. Whether he does that because of their
relationship or out of fear of Mulder's revenge is not made clear.
