|“||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, in 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 joined the Sky People and went with John, Bellamy Blake and Clarke Griffin to Becca's Island to survive Praimfaya and went into space with, Bellamy, John, Raven Reyes, Harper McIntyre, Monty Green and Echo. While in space on the Ark, she became good friends with Raven and learned all about mechanics and how to fly the rocket.
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.
Early Life Edit
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. 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 Edit
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.
You can help this Wiki by explaining more about Emori in Season 5. If you're not interested, check the appearances section of this page.
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.
Physical Appearance Edit
Emori is of average height with dark brown hair and dark 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.
John Murphy Edit
Emori meets Murphy in Rubicon. The two seem to hold a certain respect for one another because neither one of them judges the other one after they share their stories of how they ended up in the Dead Zone. Later on, Emori leads Murphy and the people he is with into a trap, however, she tells Murphy to "Due North" before knocking him out. When Murphy wakes up, he assumes that she is talking about the City of Light and leads his group North.
