Season: Via Domus, Episodes: 7, Faction: N/A
Lisa Gellhorn is a character in the video game Lost: Via Domus. She is a journalist who had dated Elliott before the crash. Though she is murdered before Flight 815 takes off, at the end of the game, she becomes a Flight 815 survivor.
Before the crash
Lisa was born in Albany, New York. She became a journalist and worked with Elliott, a photographer. They dated for six months, but broke up due to Elliott’s obsession with a story. Since then they became “arm length friends”.
She is employed by the Los Angeles Sun newspaper. She knows her sister was killed by Zoran Savo, who has escaped all prosecution. As a result, Lisa is dedicated to exposing him.
Lisa crossed paths with Elliott during an investigation in Australia. Their romance briefly flares up again, until Lisa learns that Elliott is using her to get the Zoran Savo story for himself. She follows him to Hotel Persephone and they agree to help each other; Elliott betrays her, by telling one of Savo’s bodyguards that Lisa is a reporter attempting to expose him. She is captured and escorted to Zoran Savo’s penthouse, where she is murdered while Elliot watches and photographs from his hiding spot. Her body was discovered in Sydney Harbour on September 24, 2004.
