Elizabeth Kuipers was born in 1941 Ohio (TXF: "Paper Clip"), and later married Bill Mulder. Around 1961, Teena Mulder had a brief affair with the Cigarette Smoking Man, a friend of Bill's, which resulted in her son Fox's conception. In 1965, Teena gave birth to Samantha Mulder. In November 1973, Samantha was abducted from the family home in Chilmark, Massachusetts, ultimately leading to her divorce. Teena knew more about Samantha's abduction and the Syndicate than she ever let on, but kept this information to herself, either to protect her son, or because it was too painful for her to bring up.
In 1996, she suffered a stroke. Thanks to a quick emergency call from X, paramedics were able to save her life, but she remained in a coma ("Talitha Cumi"). The CSM later convinced an Alien Bounty Hunter to heal her ("Herrenvolk").
Years later in 2000, Teena committed suicide after learning that she was terminally ill. Before her death, she subtly requested that Fox accept that Samantha was gone and move on with his life ("Sein Und Zeit").

Teena and Bill Mulder were married around 1961. In 1973, Teena divorced Bill and moved to Greenwich, Connecticut. Fox later learned that all members of the Syndicate, including his father, had to offer up their heirs as collateral to the Colonists, in order to ensure an alliance, and that he, not Samantha, was the first choice. Soon after Bill Mulder died, Fox asked his mother about this, to which she reluctantly replied: "I couldn't choose. It was your father's choice, and I hated him for it. Even in his grave, I hate him still."
At Bill's funeral, Teena's expression was sombre, but not overly so. Her animosity toward him still persisted.

In 1961, Teena had an affair with the CSM, a friend and colleague of her husband's. It was later revealed that Fox was born as a result of this affair. Whether or not Bill knew Fox wasn't his son remains unknown, though there were hints that he knew Teena had an affair.
Teena's first name was not revealed until "Kitsunegari."
