Orla appears to be particularly social, demonstrated through her knowledge of Blue's school life, which she acquires through her contact with elder siblings and the like. She is rather loud, brash and a little blunt too. She appears, overall, well meaning. Unlike Blue, Orla is flirtatious and not a fan of serious relationships, and she thinks true love is merely the "concept of a monogamous society."
Orla has a long deep brown elegant neck, classic cheekbones, heavy-lidded eyes and a large nose, which she does not like. She is tall and thin, with dark brown skin. Orla paints her nails with a large variety of colors and elaborate patterns. She often wears 70s fashion, including bell bottoms and clogs, and frequently wears bright orange.
Blue is Orla's cousin, and the two grew up together. They are shown as having a sibling-like relationship, arguing and bickering often, though Orla shows great concern for Blue's personal well-being, and attempts to distance her from the emotional trauma losing the boys will present. They demonstrate clear affection for one another.
- Orla's powers work best along lines, such as the telephone pay-per-minute psychic service that she runs. Blue describes her as a "phone tramp".
- Every card in her tarot deck depicts a couple kissing or making love, whether or not the card's meaning actually has anything to do with kissing or making love. (p. 10, TRK)
