Current Description:

Lorna is attractive and surprisingly short... only about 5'5". Her diminished height belies her true prowess and fighting ability, which is exhibited by the muscular patches of skin you glimpse straining out from under her armor. She seems to possess an unusal sense of strength and purpose, and a wisened look that can only come from years of combat. You can't help but notice her striking green eyes, which seem to burn with an emerald fire of purpose and intensity. After shifting your gaze from her eyes, you notice her personal crest of the mythical flying tiger emblazoned on her armor.
As Lorna gazes back at you, you sense a keen awareness, and a state of readiness, as she will defend her following, her brother Vertigo, or her fiance, the Paladin Erond, with a leap into combat. She invokes in you a deep feeling of respect...
Lorna is in perfect health.

Lorna's Immortal Profile/Bio

(Taken from the TFC Website Archives)
Lorna was born on a different plane, thrust into this world by her mother at a young age as a last desperate act to save her from death. Little is known of her plane of origin, other than that it was a place of Valkyric warriors and arcane magics at war with each other. During her mortal life, Lorna embraced the way of the warrior, having a natural disposition for it, and having little understanding or use for the ways of magic. Over the years, however, she did develop a respect for the magic of this world. The ways of the warrior are born well in her, and she cherishes the ideals of honorable combat among all else - it is a good death to die in honorable combat, aiding good, or fighting against the truly evil. It is also just as good to live by battle of wits and knowledge of your limits so that you may plague evil another day.

Lorna sought out friendship and peace amongst the mortals of the realm, and found solace in the worship of the DemiGoddess Nalya. Seeking all that was noble, Lorna found companionship and intimacy late in her mortal life in the Paladin Erond, and a brother-in-blood in the Priest-warrior Vertigo.

When Lorna's skills as a warrior were reaching their prime in development, she begin to be threatened and seduced by association with the vilest of evils, and faced dishonor and shame. With the help and love of her Goddess and mortal friends, Lorna realized the errors of her ways, and amended them, seeking only the noble path to greater ways of aiding good.

As Lorna approached the end of her mortal years, she begin seeking a link to her home plane, and discovered an extinct species of magical flying tiger. This being fascinated her, with it's odd abilities and noble form, and she adopted it as her personal crest. After many great battles, the gods of this world bestowed the gift of immortality upon her, and she was able to resurrect one living specimen of her trademark flying tiger, which is always at her side (and it is rumored that Lorna can assume the form of this mythical creature and roam the world, seeing through it's eyes.)

Lorna's Rules:

Do what Lorna commands you to do.
Be noble in your actions. No lying, cheating, or dishonorable acts will be tolerated.
PKing is to be kept honorable, with these guidelines:
A) Never kill another good character without good reason.
B) Avoid killing neutrals unless they threaten the following or commit dishonorable acts.
C) PKing of evil is at your discretion, but it is dishonorable to slay an evil who is evil only because of their red aura. Actions determine alignment moreso than auras.
D) PKing a character for their equipment is an unacceptable, dishonorable action.
E) Protect the fol lowing from all threat or aggression, and avenge any attacks upon it.
Always help others within the following, then other goods, then all others, in that order, as you deem fit and honorable. Do not aid evil unless the benefit to good greatly outweighs any benefit to evil. Do not aid the dishonorable, regardless of aura.
Newbies are the future of the MUD, and are to be cherished and helped whenever possible.
Encourage those seeking a god to choose the path of honor and goodness.
Have FUN, and encourage others to do the same!

Lorna's Deletion:

[ 9] Tynian: Lorna deleted for cheating
Sun Aug 13 18:33:16 2000
To: all
Lorna has been deleted for cheating. I have deleted every mortal of her's
that I am aware of, as well.

I will next go through the information that was provided to me, question
others that have been implicated, and take action as appropriate
(including deletion, if warranted). There is already one mortal whose
login has been disabled, and will be deleted once I have a chance to
review a few things.

My thanks to the person who made this information available. There was
more than enough information supplied to verify that some impropriety has
occurred, and I, for one, am very grateful.

Lorna is the first god+ in TFC history to be deleted for cheating. But at
least she will cheat no longer.

I am out of time, but I will be sending out another e-mail or two related
to this investigation.

Player Provided Information:

I joined Tigers, because at the time, there was really no other option. Tigers seemed pretty cool from the outside; most of the members were pretty cool people. But Lorna herself was a surprise.
