|“||Because today, I am the commander of death.||”|
|— Emori to Clarke [src]|
Emori was a Nomadic Grounder who traveled through the desert with her brother as they searched for the alleged "City of Light." She was born with a deformed hand, for which she was cast out into the desert. Along with her brother Otan, Emori started working for A.L.I.E. collecting pieces of technology. She later became good friends with John Murphy, then they became girlfriend/boyfriend.
In Season Four, she worked with the Sky People to figure out a way to survive the Praimfaya. Running out of options, and the impending danger of Raven Reyes, she would travel to Becca's Island with John, Bellamy Blake Clarke Griffin, Harper McIntyre, Monty Green, and Echo to save Raven survive the apocalypse, where they would launch themselves to The Ark to save themselves.
In Season Five, 6 years go by in space on the Ark, where she became good friends with Raven and the others, learning all about mechanics and how to fly the rocket. Upon landing back on Earth, she regrouped with Clarke and the survivors of Wonkru to join forces in fighting against the Eligius Prisoners for the Shallow Valley, the only known place on Earth that is survivable. But when the bomb is launched at the Valley, Emori, along with Wonkru and remaining Eligius Prisoners are forced to board Eligius IV as Earth is thought to be no longer habitable, and travel to a new habitable world.
In Season Six, she and John Murphy became Nightbloods with their new Mind Drives inserted into the back of their necks, while they were posing as Daniel Lee and Kaylee Lee. While posing as Daniel Lee and Kaylee Lee, she and Murphy begin helping their friends save both of their people and the people of Sanctum.
In Season Seven, she and Murphy continue their relationship while posing as Daniel and Kaylee to help keep the peace amongst the various factions on Sanctum. After Sheidheda takes over Wonkru and Sanctum, Emori helps Murphy protect the survivors of the Dark Commander's massacre and to resist his reign. After being mortally wounded, Emori's physical body dies but Murphy resurrects her by using his own body as a host for her Mind Drive despite the risks to himself. Emori transcends with the rest of the human race, but joins Clarke's friends in returning to a now habitable Earth, with her original body now restored, to live out their lives rather than to remain transcended, so that Clarke will not be alone forever.
Emori was born with a deformed hand due to radiation and because of that, her people considered her a stain in their bloodline. Normally, when a Grounder child is born with a deformity they are cast out and left to die. Her brother was born with a facial deformity. Emori was not known to have any other siblings. She never had a consistent home, and would later seek out a place she could belong.
She grew to learn how to be a mechanic, teaching herself. She also learnt how to be a thief, learning how to survive on her own in the dead zone by collecting supplies from passerbyes with the promise of the upcoming City of Light. Emori’s childhood was known to be nomadic, constantly moving around. At some point in Emori's life she, along with her brother, began working for A.L.I.E. collecting pieces of tech.
Throughout the Series
In Gimme Shelter, she overhears a conversation between Clarke and Abigail about needing someone for the Nightblood radiation experiment. Fearing that since she is a Frikdreina that she would be the one used, Emori lies about the identity of a Grounder scavenger.In Praimfaya, Emori and the others in Becca's laboratory watch via drone as the death wave hits Polis. Raven Reyes tells them that they have 90 minutes before they have to launch. While she helps to prep the rocket, she notices Echo just standing and tells her to hurry up. Later, she listens when Raven finds out that the communications system on the rocket is damaged beyond repair. When Raven remembers that A.L.I.E. transmitted herself to The Ark, Emori remembers that A.L.I.E. used the pod in the temple to do it. Raven then sends Emori, Harper McIntyre and Echo back into the rocket to finish the restraints. When Raven and Harper come into the lab carrying the oxygen generator, Emori helps Harper carry it to the rocket. When Harper says she is going back to look for Monty Green, Emori becomes worried about John Murphy. When Bellamy and Murphy return carrying a hurt Monty, Emori and Murphy embrace. Raven tells everyone to refill their oxygen tanks and board the rocket. When the time has run out, Clarke Griffin has not returned to the lab. Emori wants to give her another minute, but they launch. When they reach space, Emori is visibly delighted by the lack of gravity. When Murphy tells Emori that he has only 10 percent oxygen left, Emori tells him that she has 17 percent. He tells her that he's glad that he won't have to watch her die. However, the power on the Ark comes on and they make it inside. When Raven runs out of air, Emori and Murphy carry her inside and Emori says that they will share their air with Raven. Before they can run out of air, Bellamy Blake and Monty get the oxygen generator installed and activated. Murphy pulls an unconscious Emori to the vent and she wakes up. Emori and Murphy pull Raven toward the vent and Raven wakes up.

Emori is very cunning and intelligent individual. She is also shown to be very distrustful of strangers and will sacrifice anything for her own survival. She usually still wears a glove to cover her mutated hand, but in Season Five, her personality changes a lot. She has a softer side and doesn't show her aggressive side. She is naturally curious and is interested in learning new things, especially engineering and mechanical things, so became Raven‘s assistant. She also stopped wearing her glove as often; especially around Spacekru.
She is known to show great loyalty to those she cares for. Despite her quick witted sass, she is a very emotionally deep person who’s known to hold deep emotions for her friends. She’s playful and vibrant, often teasing those around her. Emori is extremely intelligent but this does not always make her the most self aware as she’s shown to have a great desire to be loved and accepted as she wasn’t growing up as an outcast. She’s very blunt, often spelling things out as they are and has a very a realistic outlook on those around her, recognizing and observing the traits of their nature and accepting them. Over the course of the show she is shown to be gentler, and by the final season is one of the more caring characters.
Emori is also extremely independent and can care for herself. She does not like to be seen as vulnerable or someone who needs to fondled over. She’s spent her whole life as a nomad, taking care of herself. She’s also quite a flirt when it comes to her relationships, pointing out the strange and out-there things she’ll find attractive.
Emori is of average height with dark brown hair and brown eyes. She has olive skin and has a tattoo on her face. One of her hands is deformed which she keeps covered up. She wears Grounder clothing and a bandana.
In Season 5, after the six year jump, Emori's dark brown hair was cut shoulder length and she no longer covered her deformed hand. She still wears a bandana, but it is newer and her clothing appears to be of Ark regulation. Later on, she is shown to wear the ”Prime outfits” usually wearing a memorable blue dress, sometimes with a dark vest over. Her skin is slightly paler and cleaner as she isn’t constantly exposed in the sand and sunlight.
