Lori O'Neal

Player Name



Lorelei 'Lori' O'Neal


Hands-on Geologist.


Pigpen: To Lori, getting dirty isn’t an unfortunate side effect of her job, but a prized badge. Sadly, the people she meets for the first time don’t always see her comfortable layer of grime that way. Her bad hygiene puts her at increased risk of infected wounds.
Actions Speak Louder: Lori isn’t much of a talker, and will often restrict herself to using as few words as necessary unless talking about something she’s quite passionate for. This doesn’t mean she’s quiet, however - she has a number of noisy habits (finger snapping, tongue clicking, humming) that announce her presence. She has trouble ‘turning off’ her noise, in fact getting worse when she’s nervous. She’s got a natural knack for reading body language.
Hyperfocus: When presented with a particularly interesting puzzle, Lori will focus entirely on it, becoming absorbed and heightening her concentration. However, this leaves her oblivious to most everything else she should be paying attention to, and as such is a definite two-edged sword.

  • Silver lotus charm from Adam. Worn on a leather cord around her neck.
  • A long, oak briefcase, with a carved plaque that reads "GATE-TEC'S COMMEMORATIVE VAMPIRE HUNTING KIT". There are two leather straps suited for shoulder support, so that the case may be worn on the back laterally. (see Equipment)
  • Aluminum Baton (+1 Melee)
  • A small sampling kit, refreshed from lab supplies after each run.

Personal History

Lorelei 'Lori' O'Neal was born to a lower middle class family from a small town in Minnesota. Through a combination of willpower, stubborness, and intelligence, she put herself through college, racking up large debts in the process of obtaining her doctorate. In what seemed like a stroke of amazing luck, she was offered a job by the Submarine Canyon Project canvassing underwater geography in exchange for a lucrative salary. Upon learning about the real duties of the SCP Foundation, she accepted the work, thinking she could handle it. She's no longer so sure, however, and her post at Area 354 doesn't help.


Lori is a little on the short side, with light brown skin and an afro. She prefers to dress casually and simply, and doesn't mind when her clothes get dirty. She's got well-muscled arms and a medium build.
