Lois Lane


The daughters of General Sam Lane and his wife Ella were raised as semi-typical Army brats: they were trained in self-defense, marksmanship, and a very strong moral code. He was (and is) a strict father, and though Lois has always been the favored daughter, she's never felt that he was quite satisfied with her.

That was her goal: to impress her father, to make him proud of her, whether that was her conscious goal or not. Perhaps more accurate: she wants to be the type of person her father would respect.

She's lived in Metropolis for a good while. In the summer between eighth grade and starting high school, she had the opportunity to take part in a "cub reporter" internship: she spent the summer working at the Daily Planet and ended up developing a love of journalism that still burns hot. She got her degree, then started work at the Planet straight out of college and never left.

Lois Lane's byline means something, not just in Metropolis but in the world. She has a Pulitzer on her mantelpiece for her work reporting on Superman, and she's known for following her nose for trouble. Sometimes she gets in a little over her head, but even when there's no one to help her it's remarkable what the spitfire Lois Lane can get done on her own.

Recent Events


When it comes to her work? Lois takes it IMMENSELY seriously. She digs and digs and picks at things that seem out of place. An unsolved riddle is as irritating as a stone in her shoe. She's also immensely ambitious: she believes strongly in Truth and Justice, and there's nothing she likes more than dragging the most corrupt in the world into the light. Her reputation for being a hardass is absolutely earned, but it's not all there is to her. She will stand up for the downtrodden and the bullied given half a chance. She'll throw a punch if she thinks it's necessary. She loves fiercely and loyally, and as tough as she may be, she has a soft heart hidden under all that hard armor. Further down, though, beneath the toughness and the softness is the relentless self-criticism of a perfectionist whose work will never fully satisfy her.
