Because today, I am the commander of death.
— Emori to Clarke [src]

Emori is a recurring character in the second, third, fourth and fifth seasons. She is portrayed by Luisa D'Oliveira and debuts in Rubicon.

Emori is a Nomadic Grounder who traveled through the desert with her brother as they searched for the alleged "City of Light."

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

Emori meets Jaha and his crew

In Rubicon, Emori is confronted by Thelonious Jaha and his followers. Emori immediately sees them as a threat and tells them to stay back and threatens to kill them in Trigedasleng. However, Jaha assures her that they don't mean her any harm. They introduce themselves and Emori tells him how Wastelanders attacked her and her brother while they were on their way to the City of Light, and tells him that the Wastelanders took all of their stuff and killed her brother. Jaha orders somebody to give Emori water but Caspian doesn't want to give her any because they don't even have enough for themselves. However, John Murphy ignores Caspian and gives Emori water. Emori tells them many have tried to make it to The City of Light but hardly anyone makes it. She then she offers to help Jaha and his crew get there as long as they carry her cart. They agree to the deal and Jaha tells Caspian that he pulls the cart first.

Later on, Emori and Murphy share their stories of how they ended up in the Dead Zone. Murphy tells Emori about the time he "killed two people and tried to kill two more", and Emori shows Murphy her deformed hand. She claims that her people saw it as a stain in their bloodline and something to erase. Murphy tells Emori that she shouldn't cover her hand up because he thinks it's "pretty badass."

Emori and Murphy Rubicon

Emori hold a knife to Murphy's throat

In the end, it is revealed that Emori lied to Jaha about taking him to The City of Light and led the group into a trap. A man on a horse points a gun at the group, and Emori holds a knife to Murphy's throat and demands everyone put their weapons inside the cart. Murphy remarks that she isn't much different from any of the other Grounders. Jaha makes his crew put their weapons in the cart so Murphy is not harmed. Emori whispers something in Murphy's ear before knocking him out with the handle of the knife. When Murphy wakes up, Emori is gone but he tells Jaha and the others what she whispered to him. He says she said "Due North" and Murphy assumes that Emori was talking about The City of Light. The group starts heading North.

In Wanheda (Part 1), Emori drives the boat that picks up Thelonious Jaha, John Murphy, A.L.I.E., and Gideon from the Becca's Island. She recognizes John and exclaims that she doesn't believe that it's him. John, at first not willing to go with Thelonious, boards the boat, asking Emori who she stole it from.

In Wanheda (Part 2), Murphy calls out to Jaha, breaking through his mind journey to the City of Light and he opens his eyes, seated at the front of the boat that has arrived on-shore. Emori tries to unload the case containing A.L.I.E. and Gideon grabs it from her, taking it with him off the boat. Emori tells them they're going to the Dead Zone as they start walking.

Emori's brother, Otan, asks Jaha if he has really been to the City of Light. Jaha takes Otan off on a walk while Gideon sits and thinks his way into the City of Light. Emori tells Murphy that she and her brother were recruited by a female who comes to them in drones. They collect technology for her and bring it to Gideon on the island. Emori decides to go after the case while Gideon is sitting there in oblivion while he visits the City of Light. She tells Murphy they have other buyers and as she is about to take it, Gideon catches her and holds her by the throat. Murphy tries to get Gideon to put Emori down but no matter what he does, Gideon is unmoved, saying, "there is no pain in the City of Light." Emori stabs him in the neck, killing him. She grabs the case and takes off back to the boat. Murphy follows after.

Emori and Murphy are at the boat, waiting for Otan to arrive. Murphy tries to open the case and Emori tells him she will split whatever is in there with him. Murphy comments how all she had to do was kill a guy and she thanks him for saving her life, kissing him on the cheek. She pries open the case with her knife, revealing technology with the infinity symbol, which is the same logo stamped on the chip Jaha gave to Murphy. Murphy realizes the case is housing A.L.I.E. and Jaha had brought her with them. Otan shows up and demands the case from Murphy, taking Emori hostage. Jaha arrives as Emori asks what is going on. Murphy says that Otan "ate the damned chip" that Jaha gave him and threatens to drop the case into the water unless they let Emori go. Jaha starts proselytizing about the City of Light to Murphy and Murphy goes to drop the case in the water. Jaha and Otan give up and release Emori. Murphy throws the case far from them and into the water, leaving them running after it while he and Emori take off in the boat.

In Hakeldama, Murphy and Emori have now started a romantic relationship. They become thieves and steal from people they scam on the streets. Murphy pretends to be dead and a grounder comes along. The grounder is about to rob Murphy when Emori comes out and steals from him. They speak in Trigedasleng where the grounder man talks angrily to Emori. Murphy asks what he said and Emori says that the grounder said he is cute for a thief and the two kiss. Later Emori, oblivious to Otan's death, wants to go look for her brother, but Murphy refuses. Emori leaves without him to go search for Otan. She returns and says she will look for Otan when she can convince him to come with her. Some grounders arrive and Emori runs to hide, as they prepare another con. Murphy is found by Grounders from Polis, realizing he is the thief, and prepare to kill him. They ask him where the Emori is but Murphy lies and says that she left. The are about to kill but they find the pill Jaha gave him, calling it "the sacred symbol," and apprehend him to find out where he received the object. They then take Murphy away while Emori watches from afar.

In Demons, Emori returns to find Murphy. Murphy is walking with Ontari when Emori is disguised as a stall holder. She alerts his attention by pretending to offer him some squirrel. She says that the previous stall holder died a painful death and says that she had been looking for him ever since he left. When she heard that the Heda had a handsome Skaikru flamekeeper, it had to be him. Ontari walks back and asks if Murphy knows Emori. Murphy claims that he doesn't and tells Emori he will get away as soon as possible. Later, Murphy meet Emori at the old flamekeeper's room where she asks if him if he is ready to show her how much he missed her. The two enter and kiss but Emori recognizes some of the tech. She is also amazed by the wall art of Becca and the motto, 'Seek higher things' that depicts grounder mythology. Murphy is surprised that she believed in it and then kisses her neck. She asks him if he is sure that nobody will come in and Murphy says he is and the two have sex.

Later, Emori and Murphy are dressing and Emori asks how he pulled it off. Murphy explains that Ontari isn't really commander as she doesn't have the flame and she believes Murphy can help her become Commander. Murphy is called for by Ontari's men and he tells Emori to stay put as he will return later. Later, Jaha reveals to Ontari that he knows she is not really commander and he can help her. Ontari is angry that Murphy told Jaha, but Murphy didn't tell Jaha anything. Emori then enters and it is revealed that she took the key to the City of Light and A.L.I.E. heard what Murphy said which is how Jaha knew. Murphy sadly looks at Emori when he realizes she is chipped. Ontari is confused as Murphy said he didn't know Emori. Emori tells Ontari that she is Murphy's lover. Emori later comes into the throne room and tells Jaha that the gates are open to Polis.

In Red Sky at Morning, A.L.I.E. and Jaha call Emori to the City of Light as they need her help. Jaha tells Emori she can correct her defects in the City of Light and Emori replies that she would if she had any. A.L.I.E. tells her that Murphy is going for the backpack and sends Emori to intercept them. She arrives with many other chipped people to the flame keepers room. Charles Pike nearly shoots her but Murphy stops him when he sees Emori. Murphy is about to destroy the backpack when Emori tells him it is a nuclear fuel cell and he will irradiate the city. They figure out how to destroy the backpack without irradiating Polis. A.L.I.E. tells Emori she needs to stall them until migration. Emori tells Murphy that it's not just A.L.I.E. in the backpack, it is everybody in the City of Light. If he destroys it then they will all be gone. Pike destroys it anyway and Murphy asks if Emori is okay but she just smiles and says they are too late. They cover Emori's face as they leave and when some chipped guards appear, the three of them are gone.

In Perverse Instantiation (Part 2), Emori along with Marcus Kane storm the tower. She is electrocuted and knocked unconscious after Octavia Blake distracts them. Later, she awakens and enters the tower. She begins to walk towards Murphy, who is pumping Ontari's heart when Clarke Griffin destroys A.L.I.E.. She awakens and calls Murphy's name. Murphy rushes over to her and they embrace. She cries and apologizes to Murphy.

In A Lie Guarded, she returns to Becca's Island with Abigail Griffin, Eric Jackson, Nathan Miller, John Murphy, Nyko, and Luna.

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.
