Jessica Lockwood was the older sister of Anthony Lockwood.


Jessica Lockwood died at the age of fifteen, after breaking an Indonesian ghost pot that her parents had brought home from an expedition. Her younger brother, Anthony Lockwood, who was only nine during the incident, ran to her room after hearing her scream and managed to defeat the ghost, but unfortunately wasn't able to save her.[1][2]

Legacy and impactEdit

The loss of Jessica affected Anthony Lockwood deeply, and after discovering his Talent of Sight, he left and was apprenticed by a man nicknamed "Gravedigger Sykes."[citation needed]



Lockwood describes Lucy quite alike Jessica, having a headstrong, passionate personality.[citation needed]
