Lorelei is a very deceptive and cunning person. She bears an insatiable grudge against humankind for treating Pokémon poorly - a trait shared by all members of the Elite Four excluding Bruno-. Lorelei also has sadistic tendencies, namely when Red was immobilized within her ice, she continued to harm him grievously. However, Lorelei also has a kinder side, when she assists Red and the other Pokédex Holders in the fight against The Three Beasts of Team Rocket, who attacked her hometown in the Sevii Islands. Lorelei is shown to have extreme adulation for Agatha, who saved her Pokémon when she was very little. Lorelei is also shown to dislike people who purposefully get in her way, as shown when she willingly singled out Green at Cerise Island, as payback for their brief confrontation in Viridian Forest.
Lorelei was sobbing at the base of a construction site, over the sick body of her Seel. She is approached by Agatha, who asks whether she needs any assistance. Agatha deduces that her Pokémon is being affected by the toxic smog exhumed by the industrial waste pollution, but alleviates the situation by having her Gastly consume the toxic poison from Dewgong's system. This has an instantaneous effect on Dewgong, as Lorelei is unable to contain her thanks. Agatha tells Lorelei that humans can cause horrible things to happen, asking whether she hates the humans for causing her Pokémon pain. She then asks Lorelei whether she would like to become her partner.
Red, Green & Blue arc
Lorelei sends a letter of challenge to Red, under Bruno's name. She later interrupts Bruno's training session, informing him that the winner of the Pokémon League is a Trainer named Red, and that he is to assess Red's skill under Lance's strict instructions. Later, whilst Bruno and Red are fighting one another; Lorelei and Agatha eagerly await the outcome. However, when Bruno reveals to Red the importance of Pokémon and human connection, Lorelei brings him to his knees. Lorelei berates Bruno's nature, stating that Pokémon and human co-existence is impossible, and that the only solution is the eradication of all human beings. She reveals that the reason that they brought Red there was so that he could tell them where the missing Gym Leader Giovanni is, in order to complete their badge amplification device.
When Red attempts to escape from the Elite Four's grasp on Aero's back, Lorelei prevents his escape. She uses her Jynx to bind his legs, demanding the location of Giovanni. Lorelei realizes that Red is telling the truth, and reveals that they also brought him here to ask whether he would join their side. She states that they have been keeping an eye on him for some time now, praising his intellect. However, when Red refuses, Lorelei and the other Elite Four members quickly turn on him. Lorelei expresses her disappontment that Red did not join them, but states that a Trainer with his skill is a dangerous thing. The three Pokémon, Gastly, Hitmonlee and Jynx proceed to attack Red's Pokémon simultaneously, blinding Red. Lorelei apologizes to Red, as her Jynx forms an ice doll of the Trainer. She proceeds to mark both Red's arms and feet, as subsequent ice crystals form on those limbs.This leaves him open to attack, as Hitmonlee kicks Red in the stomach. As Red stumbles onto the ground, telling Pika to run away, Lorelei orders her Jynx to make the ice crystals on his body spread. Red is completely enveloped within Lorelei's ice mass as Pika makes its escape.
Later, Lorelei confronts both Bill and Yellow at the Viridian Forest, whereupon she tried to eliminate Pika. However, when Yellow analyses Lorelei's attacking Pokémon, she is promptly defeated due to her mind-reading ability. To this effect, Yellow was able to read her Pokémon's mind and easily defeated Lorelei's Cloyster. As Bill and Yellow attempted to make their escape, Lorelei continually pursued them across a riverbed, freezing it to stop their movements. She questions the source of Yellow's mind-reading abilities, but Yellow uses this momentary distraction to shatter the ice trapping her and Bill. As they once again attempt to escape, Lorelei tries to stop them by releasing her Pokémon, her Poké Ball is deflected by the likes of Green. This allows the trio to effect their escape, as Lorelei informs Agatha that their new target is Yellow.
Once the Elite Four's plans begin unraveling, Lorelei dispatches her Shellder to attack the Celadon City Gym in an effort to prevent Erika from intervening at Cerise Island. When Green teams up with Team Rocket executive Sabrina, Lorelei binds both their hands together with Ice Doll. She begins to attack the pair with a barrage from her Cloyster and Jynx respectively, eventually resulting in Green getting knocked out. As Sabrina faces off against Lorelei alone, she mocks the Team Rocket' executive's plight. Lorelei assumes that Sabrina is attempting to take the ice doll from Cloyster, as her Venomoth repeatedly attacks its hard surface. However, Lorelei is surprised when her Cloyster faints, realising that Sabrina's true goal was to weaken it gradually with Mega Drain. Green later regains consciousness in the nick of time, rescuing Sabrina from Lorelei's attack through her Blasty's Hydro Cannon. Lorelei is surprised by Green's explanation of events, as the Pokémon trainer proceeds to use her Clefy to minimize the Ice Doll in order to steal it from Cloyster.
When Green tells her Pokémon to intentionally break apart the Ice Dolls, Lorelei proclaims that this is what she deserves for opposing her. However, Green informs Lorelei that that was her intention, as "Green's" arm dissipates, proceeding to envelop Lorelei. Instantly, Lorelei realises that she was deceived, as Ditto forms around her and Jynx. Green reveals to Lorelei that her real arm was merely hidden within her jacket, and had Ditto mimic the shape of her arm in order to fool her. Lorelei then realizes that her dream of a Pokémon paradise will go unfulfilled, as Green thoroughly apologizes, before tying her up.
FireRed & LeafGreen arc
Red, Bill and Blue tracked a challenger on Four Island. There, they encountered Lorelei, who also wished to fight Team Rocket. Lorelei reminded the boys this was her home she wanted to protect from such menaces. She wanted to know if Team Rocket was seen in Icefall Cave. Before they could answer, Carr of The Three Beasts appeared and captured them with his machine, then started attacking the wild Pokémon, which shocked Lorelei. Red's Venusaur used Frenzy Plant and Blue's Charizard fired Blast Burn, which Carr reflected using his machine. Sird and Orm joined in, scolding Carr for "playing with these people". Red went to attack them, so Carr had one of his Forretress explode. To save everyone, Lorelei had Slowking dig a hole for everyone to escape to her house, even if Blue was annoyed how many dolls Lorelei had. However, all of them were shocked when Carr, Sird and Orm demanded the Pokédex Holders to be taken to them, else they would terrorize the islands.
Since they had little choice left, Red and Blue decided to fight Carr on Five Island and Orm on Six Island, while Lorelei promised to fight Sird on Seven Island. The group went on a boat, which sailed away to reach the islands as close as possible. Eventually, she faced Sird. In the middle of the battle, Lorelei noticed something on Five Island. Sird reminded her not to drop her guard, as her Persian started attacking her. Sird also claimed they have unlocked the ruins of the islands, as hordes of Unown started coming out and defeated her Slowking. Lorelei sent her Cloyster out, which defeated the Unown with Spike Cannon. However, Sird used this distraction, for her Starmie used Camouflage. Lorelei tried to have her Cloyster protect both of them, but was too late, as she was heavily injured by Starmie's Hyper Beam. Lorelei fell down, but as Sird was leaving, she had her Jynx mark Sird's leg with ice.
Her unconscious body was brought to Red by Mewtwo, who had rescued her. Red carried Lorelei to the ship and introduced Mewtwo to others. After waking up, Lorelei was greeted by Ultima. Lorelei felt an honor to have met the legendary trainer. However, she warned that Team Rocket was not in the Trainer Tower Red, Green and Blue were visiting. She admitted she let Jynx mark Sird to pinpoint her location and saw that Sird was on a machine that moved very fast. Lorelei, Ultima and a sailor went inside the tower to help the Pokédex Holders. They were glad that Green's parents were saved. Ultima decided to help the Pokédex Holders out, asking of Lorelei to take care of her Dragonite. In addition, Lorelei promised to Green she would look after her parents.
After the fighting at Trainer Tower was over, Ultima called Mr. Briney, who reported Mew was flying to Kanto. This forced Ultima, Blue, Professor Oak, Lorelei, Green and her parents to sail back to Kanto. The group soon reached Vermilion City, from where Blue and Green went to help Red. As the Pokédex Holders, including Yellow and Silver, saved the city by preventing the airship to crash, Lorelei, Professor Oak and Ultima went to congratulate the children. Lorelei saw that Sird was approaching them, but to prevent that, she had her Jynx create an ice doll, and started marking the body parts to freeze Sird. However, just as they arrived to the children, they were in shock that all of them have been petrified by Sird.
