Biography

Character History

Krevlornswath Of The Deathwok Clan was born in the demonic dimension, Pylea. Lorne, as he preferred to be called, wasn't like his fellow Deathwok clan demons; bloodthirsty "champions" constantly undertaking quests against evil. He was a gentle soul who did not share his kin's prejudice against humans (or "cows" as they were called in his world). Lorne would rather flirt with the female demons and enjoy life then train to be a "fighter". Lorne also enjoyed beauty, art, and even music, which was difficult considering his world had no music. He refused to train his innate mystical senses to learn to hunt beasts and was considered the shame of his clan. A champion (identical to the French, from the late Latin campio) is one who has repeatedly come out first among contestants in challenges (especially the winner of a tournament or other competition) or other test, one who is outstandingly skilled in their field. ... This article is about the word, for other meanings see Quest (disambiguation) A quest is a journey towards a goal with great meaning and is used in mythology and literature as a plot device. ...


In 1996, he happened upon a dimensional portal and was sucked through it. He landed in Los Angeles and discovered music and culture like he never imagined. He learned to hone his mystical senses to read people's auras, but found it easiest to do so when they sang, bearing their souls. He decided to open up a karoke bar on the spot he arrived on Earth, an old abandoned building. He contracted the Transuding Furies to cast a sanctuary spell on the spot, which stopped any demon violence from occurring on it. He named the bar Caritas, the Latin word for mercy. The bar became a success from the ambigiously evil Los Angeles undergroundscene. To most who visited the bar, he was simply called "The Host". He later stated that he didn't use the name "Lorne" in this dimension, because his striking green skin prompted people to make Lorne Greene jokes. This article is about the largest city in California. ... Lorne Greene O.C., LL.D. (February 12, 1915 – September 11, 1987) was a Canadian actor best known for two iconic roles on American television. ...


Lorne was always reluctant to help out Angel and the other heroes of the series, though his essential goodness usually won out over his reticence. Lorne's complex and often surprising personality fit well by a series that delighted in thwarting the viewers' expectations. However, in the show's fifth and final season, Lorne's kindness was slowly replaced by a growing cynicism and self-loathing of his position of positive "cheerleader" for Angel and friends. When Lorne's close friend, Fred, was murdered and her body usurped by an ancient demon god, Lorne became filled with despair which he kept secret from the rest of his equally heartbroken friends. By the conclusion of the series, Lorne announced he was leaving Los Angeles after carrying out his part in Angel's scheme to destroy the Circle of the Black Thorn. This included murdering long time enemy turned ally Lindsey McDonald, who in his final words muttered at the unfairness of being killed by Lorne and not his longtime rival Angel. It has been suggested that Angelus (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) be merged into this article or section. ... The Circle of the Black Thorn was a fictional secret society in the television show, Angel. ... Lindsey McDonald was a fictional character on the WB Network television series Angel. ...


In his final scene, after shooting Lindsey with a pistol, a broken Lorne breaks the show's fourth wall and directly addresses the viewers; telling them "Good night, folks..." as he walks off into the darkness. The fourth wall is the imaginary invisible wall at the front of the stage in a proscenium theatre, through which the audience sees the action in the world of the play. ...


Powers & Abilities

Lorne can read people's auras, and their futures. He uses this power to set them on their path in life. He can also read their thoughts and emotions when he does this. He has excellent hearing, and can hear outside the normal human range. Lorne seems to be immune to the intoxicating effects of normal alcohol, but is effected by certain magical brews. He can also generate tones painful to human hearing, and at the right frequency to cause light bulbs to shatter and spark.


Romantic Relationships

Lorne never embarked in any notable romantic relationships during his time on the show. Due to his flamboyant appearance and his flirting with Angel, fans speculated that Lorne was in fact "gay". The series never made any claims about Lorne's sexuality and Hallett himself intentionally left it vague; saying that Lorne loved "all humans". However, because Lorne is from a alternate dimension where even his own mother has a beard, the traditional norms of gender and sexuality can not really apply. Nevertheless, the character worked well as a metaphor for any misunderstood outcast with his poor treatment by his family and those who believe all demons are inherently evil frighteningly similar to the homophobic mentality. In modern society, gay is a word which can be used as either a noun or adjective. ... Outcast is an action-adventure computer game by Belgian developer Appeal, released in 1999 by publisher Infogrames. ...
