Lori is a minor character in the second season of Free!

Along with her husband Russell, was a home-stay parent of Rin while he was living and training in Sydney, Australia.


Lori is a middle aged woman with sandy blonde hair and olive green eyes. The front of her hair is parted with face framing bangs, and the rest arranged in a pony tail. She is seen wearing a black singlet top, a long red cardigan, three-quarter jeans and a simple necklace.

Personality Edit

Both Lori and Russell are kind and hospitable people. Lori has a natural instinct to be a good host, doing her best to help Rin feel welcome, and also to make Haru feel comfortable and included during his visit. She is shown to be considerate and accommodating of other people, seen when she makes the effort to cook Haru's favourite food. She can also be a little cheeky, as she winks at Haru during conversation of how much Rin talked about him.

She appears to like recounting stories from when Rin stayed with them, mentioning how often he spoke of Haru and beginning to recount an apparently embarrassing story that Rin cuts her off from before she can finish (in the English dub this story apparently involved a Rin and a young girl).


She and her husband Russell appear to have a typically happy marriage.

She has a motherly instincts towards Rin, treating him like her own family.


Lori was one of Rin's host parents during the years he spent in Australia attending a special swimming club. She was quick to welcome him to her home, and made it her mission to work with her husband Russell in making sure Rin felt welcome in the foreign country by providing a warm and fun family atmosphere for the young boy. The realization that Rin wasn't completely happy and was becoming somewhat depressed due to to his performance was of great concern, and only served to bolster her efforts to make Rin's stay a happy one.

She was extremely surprised but overjoyed when Rin returned out of the blue with Haru in tow. She delighted in having him back in her home, celebrating the boys' visit with a delicious dinner spread and recounting old times before later dropping them off at their hotel with the invitation to come back and visit at any time.
