Susanna Dane was a young research assistant that focused on genetic mutation. She met the handsome Erik Lehnsherr during an open seminar and was taken right away by his charm. The relationship was short-lived, but it would forever change her life when she found out she was pregnant two months later. She was able to get in contact with him to inform him that she was both expecting and going to keep the child regardless if he was involved or not. Susanna never knew of Erik’s activities or that he was a mutant, so when Lorna was born with green hair it was a complete shock. When it came to light that Erik was indeed a mutant, Susanna came to the conclusion that her green haired babe would be the same.

Despite it all, Erik supported the mother and daughter in hopes that Lorna would show more signs of being a mutant other than the green hair. His patience was rewarded when her powers manifested during the Great Headache on May 14th — when she was almost ten. After Lorna awoke from passing out, she learned that her powers had killed her mother but had saved her. Distraught, Lorna withdrew until Erik came for her and took her to live with him.

Lorna was mostly kept in the dark about Brotherhood activities but knew that her father was into some bad things. He treated her well enough, giving her a place to live, food, education, and also training her personally as her powers were almost identical to his. She was placed into a prestige high school for the wealthy and started to dye her hair brown – mostly to fit in and to halt any gossip. Later in life, Lorna realized that Erik had placed her in that particular school to gain the trust of certain politician’s kids and to facilitate entry into their homes.

After Lorna graduated high school, she was accepted into the Geology program at UC Berkeley. It was then she confronted her father about the Brotherhood, but found the only way she could learn anything was to fully accept membership into the group. Against her better judgment, she agreed. Lorna was then allowed access to knowledge of all of the Brotherhood's activities and, furthermore, her father's plans about the world he envisioned for all mutant kind. Most critically, she stumbled upon knowledge of her half-sister, Wanda.

Time passed with Lorna mostly accepting what she had learned. That is, until one mission did not sit well with Lorna and she finally reached out to Wanda. She wanted to know how her sister was able to stay away from the Brotherhood without them bothering her. This long-distance relationship was not easy at first as neither trusted each other fully, but solidified when until they take the chance to meet each other in real life. Lorna had never been obvious about the Brotherhood's activities, but her guilt about being involved had started to mount. This is why she choose to begin feeding Wanda intelligence on the group's missions — until the Brotherhood found out that there was a mole within their order. Lorna, fearing the worst, needed out. Wanda was her answer.

Entering Xavier's

Lorna arrived at the mansion after Wanda re-routed a trip to to one of the Brotherhood the safe houses. She was little wary at first about meeting other people but opened up when she meet Adrienne Frost. After a few more meetings, Adrienne offered Lorna a job at X-Factor as a junior investigator. Lorna also started to form a close bond with Warren Worthington. She joined X-Factor on a couple of investigations, making a home for herself. She was overjoyed when her fiancé was set to return home from his extended school trip, but his return was complicated due to being kidnapped by the Brotherhood of Mutants as her father wanted to bring her 'home'. With the help of X-Factor and the X-Men, Alex was rescued, but not before he blew himself - and the building - up.

That fall she started online classes to get an Investigator License part-time while working. She ended the year getting seriously hurt during a mission, which left her nearly blind and incapacitated for a few weeks.

2016 & 2017

2016, thankfully, went a little smoother. Lorna and Alex continued to repair their relationship working at X-Factor together. In January, she worked a case to help prove that Hope Abbott was innocent of espionage. In August, she and Alex organized a trip Appalachian Trail, which ended with them getting re-engaged. In October, Lorna made it clear that Halloween is not her time of year as the kids can be brats. When December came by, Lorna wanted was reminded once again why she hated living on the East Coast — snow.

The beginning of the year was a slow start but she spent the time focusing on her wedding planned for the end of year. She found a dress to dye for and shared it with the rest of the mansion. A few weeks later she saw a post by Amanda about mysterious rocks and reached out to her to let her see it, as she had a degree in Geology. After several days or researching, all that Lorna and Alex could find out that it wasn't anything they had seen on Earth.

In May, while running errands with Alex, Lorna was part of a group of hostages at a bank. She was able to talk the guy down to learn that he just wanted the law enforcement to look for his mutant son. XFI ended up taking the case and found Collin in Center Park. After discussion with the mother, they decided to help him move forward and helped him into a safe house that was part of the Underground Railroad. It was also during this time that was the anniversary of her mother's death, when Lorna's powers first emerged, and she needed to take a few days off because the last case and the memory of her mom. Later in the month, Alex brought home a puppy named Magnus. Lorna and Alex went to investigate anti-mutant graffiti.

October approached quickly as she ready for the wedding. Despite her cool demeanor Lorna was freaking out. Thankfully, Warren had hired a wedding planner to help her out and it was relatively stress-free. After some people mentioned Friday the 13th and rehearsal dinner, Lorna hoped it wasn't jinxed. The next morning it seemed that the Friday the 13th gods had been listening when her father appeared at their wedding. He wanted to see her married and took hostages in order to do so. Though his appearance was changed, there were a select few that knew of his presence. It seemed he really wanted to see her married (and to try to get her to come back to the Brotherhood) as Lorna and Alex were officially husband and wife an hour later. They spent their honeymoon in Ireland, much to their delight.

New Chapter in 2018

The New Year brought in a busy time for Lorna as she focused on her studies and registered to take the PI exam in the Spring. She passed and became one of the two actual licensed PIs in X-Factor. However, her relationship with Warren was strained when he came into the office one night under, what Lorna believed, to be drugs and alcohol. The conversation turned violent when Warren dared to say that her father must had pimped her out to the Brotherhood Members. She ended up breaking his nose and dismissing him on leave until he sorts his shit out. When he refused to leave, Lorna tied him to the chair with metal objects and pushed the chair out of the back door.

In December she gave her husband, Alex, tickets to his favorite band playing in Las Vegas. They spent the last week of December and part of the New Year together in the desert.

2019 in a Nutshell

Lorna continued into the New Year with multiple people coming up to her saying that she should give Warren a chance. However, her stubborn nature wouldn't allow her to be the one to confront him first. If he was truly sorry, he would apologize to Alex and then come talk to her.

In April a series of missing people kept XFI busy until a visible mutant named Michelle said that her boyfriend Cain Marko had gone missing. Fearing it might be Brotherhood related, Lorna reached out to Garrison and Scott letting them know the situation. A few days later, Cain made his way back to District X but he was dressed in Asgardian gear and calling himself Kuuth. XFI alerted the XMen and decided to help the people get away and distract Juggernaut aka Kuuth from causing more destruction. They succeeded, but Lorna ended up with a sever dislocated shoulder. She stayed in the hospital for a short while and was in a sling for the better part of the rest of the year.

She was left behind during the battle of their world in Fear in the Dark as she was still injured from fighting Cain.

At the end of the Summer, Warren finally came to visit her and they made up. Lorna apologized for hurting him. But it took a sharp right when Warren said he was leaving the country and leaving XFI in her hands.

She's been extremely busy since taking over, only resurfacing once or twice for various emergencies. She's being kept alive by the steady supply of caffeine Alex brings her.
