Name: Lorna Rebecca Meyers
Birthday: February 12th
Birth Place: Boston, MA
Godly Parent: Hermes
Weapon of Choice: Sword
Personality: Lorna is playful, clever, and relentless. Knock out her teeth and she'll get up, smiling with a mouth full of blood. She's incredibly driven and passionate, committing her all to whatever she does. She's loyal to her friends, but doesn't have any qualms with tricking those outside of her circle. Most people when looking at her see a classic tomboy and they aren't far off - she loves coming back to the cabin after a long day, covered from head to toe in mud and sweat. When nervous, she tends to ramble - sometimes uncontrollably so - and that's when her emotions will tend to get poured out, like emotional word-vomit. She can be somewhat quick to anger, especially when she feels like people are acting like she doesn't know something - she gets very
defensive whenever the idea is tossed around that just because she's sporty, she's dumb.
History: Lorna is the only child of professional ice hockey star Maxine "Max" Meyers. Her mother was the captain of the Boston Pride when she met Hermes after a competition. The two of them dated for a year or so, until Lorna's mother got an offer to coach for the Canadian Women's National Team (ever so creatively named) and she left the United States, bringing baby Lorna with her. They moved thousands of miles to Calgary, where Lorna's mom would eventually marry one of the other assistant coaches of the team, Chuck. Chuck legally adopted Lorna when she was five years old - and is a surprisingly good stepfather, despite being estranged from his biological son.
Her childhood was filled with sports - Lorna was learning to skate almost as soon as she had learned how to walk. She played hockey, field hockey, soccer - basically any sport her parents could sign her up for, they did. She loved it - and it also helped her parents if she burned through her relentless seemingly infinite amount of energy. But while she was amazing at sports, Lorna struggled at school, eventually being diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD. She was never kicked out of school, but her parents did withdraw her from a couple, always hoping that the next school would be able to support her academically better than the last one.
When she was eleven years old, a satyr located Lorna at her fourth school in seven years. Lorna had planned to confront her mother about the truth about her birth father, only for laistrygonian giants to attack her after ice hockey practice. Lorna ended up narrowly escaping with her life (and a seriously swollen black eye) and crossing the border to the US with the satyr (a sweet kid named Alex). She sent her mother postcards to let her know that she was okay along the journey, although Lorna and Alex ran into a handful of monsters along the way.
About a month after leaving Calgary, Lorna made it to Camp Half-blood with Alex. She was placed in the Hermes Cabin with the other unclaimed campers. She was claimed after an unruly game of Capture the Flag, where she knocked out some of the teeth of an Ares' camper with the butt of her sword. Since then, Lorna has been pretty content in the Hermes cabin. Her siblings are fun to be around and she loves all of the physical activities that Camp has to offer - the intellectual ones, not so much. She's secretly gotten into reading, ever since discovering that reading in Ancient Greek comes sooooo
much easier to her than reading in English. Her mother has agreed that Lorna can stay at Camp year-round, with the condition that Lorna comes to visit during any games the team is playing in the US - something which Lorna loves to go to anyways.
She also enjoys spending time with her half-brother, Luke - and has vowed that she'll kick his ass one day in a sword-fight.
