Adjunct Lorn was the Adjunct to Empress Laseen until 1163 Burn's Sleep. She was described as young, lithe, with long auburn hair which would dangle in tattered ropes down over her imperial cape when she took off her helmet. She was a good rider and the stallion she rode, a warhorse, was bred of the finest lines of Seven Cities stock.
She was originally from Malaz City.
Due to wearing the Otataral sword, the designated weapon of the Empresses' personal Adjunct, Lorn was anathema to sorcery. It meant that she knew the patterns of sorcery and the pattern of the minds that used it.
In 1161BS, Lorn was assigned to investigate the massacre at Itko Kan, where she recruited Ganoes Paran into her service. Her link to Paran, enabling her to sense his whereabouts, was eventually severed by Oponn.
In 1163BS, she was given the task of freeing the Jaghut Tyrant Raest from his imprisonment with the help of the T'lan Imass, Onos T'oolan, whom she nicknamed "Tool". This took her all the way to Darujhistan.
After succeeding in freeing the Tyrant, she buried Raest's finnest in the garden of the Simtal/Coll Estate and set off in pursuit of the Coin Bearer. On her way, she released a soletaken demon Lord of Galayn on the city.
As she made her move to kill the Coin Bearer, she was intercepted and engaged in combat by Corporal Blues of the Crimson Guard. Though she managed to break off the fight and escape, she was gravely wounded. Just as she thought she was safe, she encountered Meese and Irilta, who had been sent after her by the Eel. She was then found by Paran and died in his arms.
