Lorna is a young, ill girl who was possessed by an evil spirit. She appears in The Ringing of the Bell. She also cameos in the prologue of episode 1, and the epilogue of episode 10.

In the prologue.

Lorna's "illness" was actually an evil spirit that possessed her at some point before the arrival of Wirt and Gregory. Auntie Whispers used a magic bell to force Lorna to work, distracting her so that the spirit could not make her wicked.

She is voiced by Shannyn Sossamon and speaks with an Olde English accent.



'Wicked' Lorna

Lorna is an adolescent with pale skin and dark brown hair. She is dressed in a white bonnet, a dark aqua blouse, and a white apron.

As 'wicked' Lorna, she wears a dark aqua dress and has short, choppy brown hair. Her bonnet becomes ragged and flips up at the corners. She has a twisted smile with gnarly, mangled teeth (with some missing). Her eyes sink into her head and her irises shrink to pale blue slits. Lorna's face becomes much more gaunt and sunken.


Lorna is a sweet girl who quickly takes a liking to Wirt and Greg. She seems to trust them fully and possibly shares romantic feelings for Wirt. She is very compassionate, as seen when she chose to stay with Auntie Whispers.

When she becomes 'wicked' Lorna, she is cannibalistic and evil. In this form, she can float and eats humans alive.
