Aornis Hades is Acheron Hades' sister, and the only girl in the Hades family. She is a mnemonomorph, and therefore has the power to alter and erase memories completely. She also seems to have a limited control over entropy. Aornis is every bit as sadistic and evil as her brother, and her main goal is to get revenge on Thursday for killing him.

Lost in a Good BookEdit

Aornis first appears in the second book in the Thursday Next series. Her first appearance (as written in the book) is when Landen asks her name, to which she replies "Violet De'ath". Her next appearance is in Thursday's memories, when it is revealed she talked to Thursday at the SkyRail, in Osaka, and at in the ConStuff lobby. She swears revenge on Thursday for killing her brother, and admits she's responsible for the Dream Topping accident, before leaving Thursday to deal with the Apocalypse.


Aornis is completely evil, just like every member of the Hades family except Lethe. She is an avid shopper, and gossips heavily about it to Thursday in her memories. She seems to be of sound mind, and is definitely smart enough to almost beat Thursday.


Aornis is described as a blonde woman of average appearance with no defining features.


Memory Control-Edit

Aornis is a mnemonomorph, giving her the ability to control memories. She is able to erase them, alter them, and even stay inside someone's head as a 'mindworm', whilst the real Aornis is free to do whatever she wants. She also planted the memory of a child in Thursday's head- Jenny, who is entirely non-existent.

Entropy Control-Edit

Aornis seems to have some control over entropy levels in a certain area, allowing her to alter the probabilty of coincidences.
