Simone Lightbourne is a recurring character in the sixth season. She is portrayed by cast members Tattiawna Jones and Chelah Horsdal and debuts in "Red Sun Rising".

She is a resident of Sanctum and one of the Primes. She is the wife of Russell Lightbourne and the mother to Josephine.

Early Life Edit

Simone was born on Earth. At some point she married Russell Lightbourne and they had a daughter, Josephine.

The three of them went aboard Eligius III to travel to the moon Alpha. They arrived there in 2045 and were original members of Mission Team Alpha. Simone was one of the doctors for the team. On day 21 of the mission, Simone was killed by Russell during an eclipse induced psychosis.

In 2070 or later, Simone was brought back to life via a black blood host and her Mind Drive. Her family become three of the Primes and used various hosts for the next two centuries to be reborn after each death. Simone is currently on her fifth host, making her Simone VI.[1]

Throughout the Series Edit

In Sanctum, a photograph of the original Simone and her family is shown hanging on a wall.

In Red Sun Rising, Simone is shown in a flashback with the rest of the Mission Team Alpha. In the flashback, she brings her daughter Josephine to see her husband and she gets upset with her daughter for making the children eat an unknown berry that tastes like cotton candy. She then takes a first aid bag and goes to check on the kids. Later Josephine and Gabriel Santiago return to the camp after hearing a sonic anominally and they find Simone running out of the tent screaming and bleeding. She then dies in Josephine's arms.

In The Children of Gabriel, the current "reincarnation" of Simone is among the first Sanctum Citizens to find Clarke Griffin's group from Earth. When she notices Rose talking to Clarke, she asks her to stay away, saying that they must protect the host. Simone introduces her husband as Russell Lightbourne VII and tells Clarke to bow before saying his name. Unlike Russell, Simone is strict and unwelcoming to the earthlings. When her husband invites Clarke for dinner to discuss if they should stay, Simone is particularly hard on Clarke. She starts asking Clarke about how many people she killed. Simone reveals that she knows Clarke is called Wanheda, which Clarke deduces is from Jordan Green telling Delilah about her past. Simone and her husband decide not to let Clarke's people stay in Sanctum. However, after Clarke rescues Delilah kidnapped by the Children of Gabriel and they discover Clarke has Royal Blood, they change their mind.

In The Face Behind the Glass, Simone becomes suspicious that one of their people in Sanctum is a traitor and a spy for the Children of Gabriel. Her suspicions are confirmed true when they find out that Cillian has paralyzed Clarke because she has royal blood. After learning that Rose has been killed, Simone and Russell come up with a plan to use Clarke as the host for their daughter, Josephine. Russell feels sorry for taking advantage of Clarke while she's paralyzed but Simone convinces him that it was meant to be - it's fate that a host like Clarke landed in Sanctum when she did. To bring Josephine back, they agree to erase Clarke's mind and replace her memories and personality with those of Josephine. So, she opens up her necklace, revealing a Mind Drive, an implant similar to Becca's A.L.I.E. 2.0. She injects Clarke with sedative to knock her out after which they take her to a lab and insert Josephine's Mind Drive inside her. A while later, Josephine wakes up inside Clarke's body. Simone is thrilled to be reunited with her daughter.

Personality Edit

In her original life, she seemed kind and very caring for the children that were sent on their mission.

In her current host, she has piercing, dark brown eyes; and curly, dark brown hair, which can often be found arranged in elaborate updos. She appears to be of multiethnic ancestry and has light brown skin. She is often seen wearing pendants or other jewelry that accentuates her elaborate haristyles. She is seen wearing embellished robes and long dresses that obscure her body, but seems to be lean and an average height.

Her original appearance was a light complexion, middle-aged woman with red hair.
