* FlingALightIntoTheFuture / HeroicSacrifice: Loreen knows that by writing about the House, she's risking her safety and she'll eventually be found by the flesh puppets and "dragged through the front door of a house that smells like bread and warm blood." It doesn't stop her from writing down what she knows anyway, hoping that people will learn enough about the House to avoid it.

* BadassBookworm: Loreen can beat up full grown men with clear size advantages over her (while tipsy, no less) and is also a teacher or professor. She is also both tough enough and shrewd enough to escape from the House, kill a flesh puppet AND stay off the House's radar for years. To boot, she even manages to compile detailed notes regarding the house's digestion habits and records her experiences via Livejournal [[spoiler: before possibly being caught, which she predicted would eventually happen.]]

When she confesses to everything leading up to the murder of one of House's flesh puppets, the court determines that she's not-guilty by way of mental defect and place her in an asylum.
