Quote1 Doing what? With Geoffrey Wilder gone, I don't have any weapons or...or powers. I'm just a gullible idiot who got played by a kid and his creepy dad. Quote2
-- Lotus src

Lotus was one of Alex Wilder's friends who played a Marvel heroes themed MMORPG along with Hunter, Oscar, and Stretch.[1][2] The group started meeting in person and form a close friendship. Lotus also attended renaissance fairs and dressed in medieval-style clothing.[2]

After Alex's death, Hunter covertly researched Alex and the Pride. Believing the Alex and the Pride were the "good guys", the group used the Abstract to cast a spell to retrieve Alex from the past before he died. During the ceremony, Oscar died and a young Geoffrey Wilder was summoned to the present instead of Alex.[2]

Lotus using the Chrono-Recorder

Thinking they could still honor Alex's memory and save the world, Lotus, Stretch, and Hunter formed the New Pride. Using magical items from the Minorus, the New Pride began to covertly gather information about the Runaway.[5][6] When they directly confronted the Runaways, they kidnapped Molly Hayes[7] not knowing that Geoffrey planned to sacrifice her to the Gibborim. During the rescue, Geoffrey seemingly murdered Gertrude Yorkes leading to the disbanding of the New Pride.[8]

Following Gert's death, Stretch checked himself into a mental health facility and Hunter joined the Peace Corps to atone for the "blood" on his hands.[9] Meanwhile, Lotus returned to her day job until Chase Stein forced to assist her to help him contact the Gibborim to resurrect Gertrude.[10]



  • Lotus stated that she has paid off her student loans, implying that she has attended at least some college.[4]
