Zaladane Delgado
Born: 1971

When her aunt and uncle died, leaving their little girl to be adopted by Janice and Paul, Zala was furious. After a year of escalating fights and rebellions and feeling like she'd been replaced, she had once last screaming match with her parents, stole Paul's credit card and left. Several enormous cash advances later, the card was mailed back, cut up. Zala contacted her parents several times to demand money but despite efforts of a privately hired agency, could never be tracked down and convinced to return home. When Zala turned 21, they gave up looking for her and just hoped that she would come home on her own. In August 2006, Janice and Paul removed Zala from their wills.

Lorna's second cousin and daughter of Janice's cousin, Cammy is small, blonde and bubbly. She had her first child in August 2005 following a difficult pregnancy. Her husband, a Naval officer, is based in Port Hueneme but is often away on ship. They live about half an hour (with no traffic) from Janice and Paul.

Lorna's parents are in fact her aunt and uncle, who adopted her upon the death of her mother's brother and wife. They were older when they adopted their neice, an action that did not sit well with Zala, their 14 year old daughter. Zala eventually left home at 15, disappearing and having no contact with her family until Lorna later tracked her down in 2006.

The Danes tried to be a supportive family, doing their best to help Lorna, especially after her manifestation and later eating disorder. However, Lorna and her father fought on several occasions, usually as a result of his over-protectiveness and tendency to go for the dramatic over-reaction (such as literally threatening her boyfriend Alex Summers with a shotgun). They have visited the school several times, usually to try and encourage Lorna to leave due to their perception of it as a dangerous place for her.

December 2003 - Following an accident in which Alex's powers cause Lorna severe burns, both Paul and Janice come to the school, intent on removing their daughter from the school's care.

October 2004 - Janice is in a car accident. Lorna and Alex go to California. Paul threatens Alex with his shotgun

With Malice Aforethought - After not hearing from her daughter for several weeks, Janice calls Alex to find out what's going on. Cammy's identity is used by Mystique as a cover.

Thanksgiving 2005 - Alex asks Paul for permission to marry Lorna and receives it.

August 2006 - Paul and Janice write Zala out of their wills. Lorna discovers Zala's existence.
