Unlike most Auradon kids, she is much more open-minded about having the four wicked descendants attend their school, and is sympathetic to their plight. She is also friendly to them and does not look down on them as wicked villains (unlike many others, even their teachers) Compared to the other kids, she is the most normal.
She is also strongly implied to be the individual who sets up the secret camera in the web series School of Secrets. Her voice appears at the beginning, saying "Alright. Good to go.", and at the end, saying "Be good, Auradon. Someone's watching."
At the end of the movie, she was dancing with Chad Charming, and then she hugs Evie and Audrey.
In Descendants 2, Lonnie is very strong-willed and really wants to be a part of the Swords and Shields team, even though its all-male. She also accompanies Jay and Carlos to the Isle of the Lost after she hears what happened to Ben. Her Martial Arts and sword fighting skills are shown and Jay takes an interest, making him step down as the Swords and Shields team captain and making her the captain. During the Cotillion scene, she is seen next to Jay, meaning that she is probably his date. She also sides with Mal when Ben comes to the Cotillion with Uma. In the end, she dances with Jay and shares a few moments with him.
Lonnie wants to be cool as she was the second person (the first was Jane) to ask Mal to use a spell on her hair to make her cooler. It's shown that Mulan and Shang are well off as Lonnie has no qualms about giving Mal $50 for a makeover. Lonnie is also shown as curious about the villains and under the assumption that their lifestyles aren't too different from her own. She's shown as kind and empathetic as she cries when she learns the villains may not love their kids.
Along with Jane and the other students at Auradon Prep, she was quick to turn on the 4 at Family Day after Mal was confronted by Aurora's mother.
In Wicked World, Lonnie tries to be funny during the Neon Lights Ball, such as when suspicious events occur, treating the ordeal as if it were an actual movie. However, no one appreciated her humor.
In Descendants 2, Lonnie wants to be on the R.O.A.R. team at Auradon Prep and really doesn't appreciate it when Chad Charming tells her that the rule book doesn't allow it. She seems to want to be in her mother's footsteps. Lonnie also appears to be very sneaky, especially when she overhears what happened to Ben on the Isle through Carlos, Jay, Dude, and Chad. She always is eager to help others, which is shown when she forces Jay and Carlos to take her to the Isle to fight Uma and the rest of her pirate crew.
Lonnie is a beautiful girl with her medium chestnut hair and honey highlights and brown eyes. She is seen smiling almost all the time. At the coronation, Lonnie wears a short pink kimono-inspired dress with a pink obi sash tied around her waist. Her go-to accessories are her bracelets and a headband.
Lonnie firmly establishes herself as a talented athlete and wants nothing more than to play on the all-male Swords and Shields team at Auradon Prep. Her request to be on the team is a joke to Chad Charming, who tells Jay that it's all MEN. When Jay and Carlos come back to Auradon to make a fake wand (using Carlos's 3D printer), Lonnie overhears what happened to Ben at the Isle and blackmails Carlos and Jay to take her with them to help fight Uma. During the fight, she is seen to use her good nature and sweetness to defeat opponents and also has great skill when it comes to sword fighting. Because of this, Jay asks her to go to practice with him and makes her captain of the Swords and Shields team (because the rule book said "a team must be comprised of a captain and eight men" so Jay steps down as the captain and becomes one of eight men). At the Cotillion, it is seen that she is Jay's date (because he originally said he was going solo so he could dance with all the girls) and they share a few moments together. She also gets upset and supports Mal when Ben tells Mal he's in love with Uma. In the end, she dances with Jay.
She made her third episode appearance in "I'm Your Girl" where she was in the lab with Mal, Jordan, and Evie, making her an outfit. She thanks them for making her an outfit, although she wonders why they're making her dress in the science lab. When Evie says there's nothing more cutting edge than chemical compounds, Lonnie also says that she also wanted to look "welcoming". Jordan suggests that they should make it more fierce, and Lonnie chimes in by saying that she also wants to look more friendly. Lonnie is full of questions, asking if they want her to perform in the dark and wear a glow in the dark dress made of nuclear waste. Later at the hip-hop show, she can be seen performing to "I'm Your Girl", glowing in the dark as Mal and Evie turn off the lights.
- She, Doug, and Ben might be the only kids at Auradon Prep who were fine with the villains' kids attending their school in the very beginning.
- Lonnie likes baking cookies, doing hip-hop dancing, and Martial Arts. Her Martial Arts skills are shown in Descendants 2.
- Lonnie also seemed to have been afraid of Mal and the other VKs when she undid Jane's hair spell which gave her bad hair again but seemed to have become friends with them again because they were friendly toward each other at the coronation after-party.
- In a way, Lonnie is the eyes and ears of the viewers, as she often tries to understand more about the villains' kids, and asks common questions the viewers have about what their lives are really like.
- She was the main character in School of Secrets.
- She used to have short black hair and bangs before Mal spelled her.
- Lonnie apparently likes pumpkins as stated in "Mash It Up" when Jane makes pumpkins appear.
