Stansie is shown to be level-headed and very religion centric. When Lorna doesn't eat her eucharist, she and her husband are similarly outraged.

Physical Appearance[]

Stansie Morello is a very glamorous woman, showing up to church in vibrantly coloured dresses with extensive makeup. She is a tall woman with long brown hair.


Before Lorna's incarceration[]

Stansie and her husband watch on as Lorna goes to recieve her Eucharist. When Lorna returns Stansie notices Lorna has not actually eaten the cracker. Stansie tries to make Lorna see how important the Eucharist is, but Lorna ignores her and claims that the dress she is wearing is. ("Trust No Bitch")

Despite not actually appearing physically in season two, before Lorna's incarceration, she has become dependant on her family. She has lost control of her bladder due to some unknown illness and has become unstable. She calls her family's attention with a bell from upstairs which is usually ignored. When Lorna goes to her room, Stansie shouts up from her room but Lorna ignores her yet again. ("A Whole Other Hole")
