Biography

1990 film

Being Douglas Quaid's beautiful wife, Lori is completely devoted to him. Lori is beautiful, loves Doug dearly, and their marriage still seems to be fairly passionate. But everything changes one day when Doug visits Rekall, a company specializing in memory implants. Instead of getting to "experience" a secret agent fantasy, he finds himself with real blood on his hands, and his best friend Harry (along with several construction workers) were trying to kill him.

Lori calms Doug down and goes to get help, and suddenly a stranger begins shooting at him. Doug uncovers the identity of the shadowy figure, which it none other than Lori. And the truth comes out, as apparently, Doug has had a memory implant before, and that includes most of the details of his life. His years of memories are fictional, even though his current job is real. But Lori isn't his wife, at all, just someone hired to pose as his wife to keep an eye on him. She feels a little bad for Doug though, and offers to show him what kind of woman she truly is aside from the docile loving wife she's been playing. Doug smells a rat though, and this is confirmed when he sees armed men approaching their apartment. He knocks out Lori and makes a run for safety. Lori is left behind wondering if this gig is over or not; her real husband Richter arrives and tells her pack her things, saying that Quaid is as good as dead.

Later on, Lori gets the call to come back to work by the Mars Colony Security Force. This time, much to her dismay, she is summoned to Mars, a place she despises wholeheartedly. She has been asked to pose as the loving wife once again under the order of Ricther's boss Vilos Cohaagen. As part of the plan, she arrives with Rekall businessman Dr. Edgemar to meet Quaid in a Martian hotel, where Edgemar explains to him that the chases he endure are part part of a secret agent memory implant gone wrong, thus he is dreaming. Lori appears at the door of Doug's hotel room, pleading lovingly with her 'husband' to stop all this bloodshed and return to her. Quaid's confusion is compounded by this sudden reappearance of the woman who was the love of his life and ended up trying to kill him in his own home. Once again, Doug distrusts what he's hearing and refuses to believe her. His suspicions were confirmed when he sees Edgemar sweating in fear, realizing that he isn't dreaming. An angry Quaid then shoots Edgemar, and Lori goes ballistic before troops storm the hotel room and restrain Quaid. This gives Lori the opportunity to stomp some anger into Doug's body (and his balls).

On the way to bring Quaid to Richter and Helm, Lori and the troops are ambushed by Melina, Martian freedom fighter and Quaid's former lover (even though he doesn't remember it). Melina manages to kill the troops, but Lori kicks the gun out of her hands, and the two engage in hand-to-hand combat. Although initially a close fight, Lori's strength, ferocity, and fighting skills prove to be too much for Melina. As the fight wears on, Lori begins to wear Melina down. She viciously batters her opponent, landing powerful blow after blow, knocking Melina back against the wall. Melina tries to grab Lori out of desperation, but to no avail as Lori counters her defence, and judo flips Melina, roughly throwing her to the ground. As Melina struggles to all fours, Lori knocks her unconscious with a solid boot to the ribs.

Before Lori can strike a fatal blow with a concealed knife, Doug shoots the knife out of Lori's hand. Surprised to find herself looking down the barrel of Doug's pistol, Lori reverts to her loving wife identity and tries to reason with Doug again. Quaid keeps a gun trained on her as Lori asks him if he could really shoot her: "Sweetheart, be reasonable. After all, we're married." She goes for a gun behind her back and whips it around to shoot Quaid, but he instantly shoots her right between the eyes, killing her and saying, "Consider that a divorce.". Lori's death is what led a grieving Richter to become more bent on killing Quaid, though he later ends up being killed by Quaid as well.

2012 film

In the remake, Lori is an undercover United Federation of Britain (UFB) agent assigned to watch over Quaid for the past six weeks, posing him as his wife. Eventually, following a mishap at Rekall as Quaid learns about past memories as an undercover agent, Lori revealed her true colors as she attempted to kill him, though he escapes from her. Cohaagen then orders Lori to lead down a military force to capture Quaid at all costs, despite Lori wanting to kill Quaid as he knows too much of Cohaagen's true plot of initiating an invasion in the Colony using an army of super advanced soldiers (known as Police Synthetics) and "The Fall" (which happens to be a gravity elevator running through the Earth’s core).

Following the death of Quaid's friend Harry (who too was an undercover agent of Cohaagen), Lori was able to track down Quaid and Melina inside an elevator before engaging into a fight with the latter. However, Quaid and Melina were able to escape again, much to Lori's anger. As Quaid and Melina meet up with the Resistance (led by Melina's father Matthias), Quaid soon learns of a 'kill code' that Hauser implanted inside his brain before undergoing the memory implant. However, he realizes too late that the 'kill code' was actually a trap set up a Cohaagen to lure him to the Resistance, which allowed Lori and her forces to take down the Resistance (including Matthias himself). Despite having caught Quaid and Melina, Lori get reprimanded by Cohaagen for disobeying his orders as he swears to deal with her after the invasion, much to her frustration.

Despite the loss of the Resistance, Quaid and Melina manage to escape and foil Cohaggen's plot by implanting explosives on the Fall to destroy the Police Synthetics. Lori is then forced to escape while Cohaagen and his remaining forces perished to their deaths in the Fall's destruction. Lori infiltrates into an ambulance where Quaid is being treated of his injuries. Posing as Melina with a holographic disguise, Lori attempts to kill Quaid in revenge for Cohaagen's death, but Quaid was able to see through the disguise and kills Lori with a single shot to the chest before embracing the real Melina by his side.
