Eugenia Lord is a fictional character from the soap opera One Life to Live. She is the mother of Victoria Lord, the show's main protagonist, and the late wife of Victor Lord. Though "Eugenia" died off-screen in 1949, and has only been seen in flashbacks, Viki inherited many of her qualities. Viki even has an alternate personality based "Jean Randolph" named after her mother, who is very protective of Viki.
Character History & BackgroundEdit
Though much information isn't given about the character, conclusions can be drawn from somethings. Eugenia wasn't from Llanview, but she was raised in San Francisco and later met Victor Lord. The two couple married around 1940 but the marriage was estranged because of Victor's promiscuity. They couple had their first child in August of 1945, Victoria "Viki" Lord. In 1949 the couple was still having troubles and Eugenia consoled herself by sleeping with another man. She got pregnant and attempted to pass the child off as Victor's. Victor discoverd the truth and Eugenia accidentally fell down the stairs during an arguement, with a young Viki watching. Eugenia died shortly after giving birth to her daughter, Meredith Lord who Victor raised as his own. Eugenia's death led Victor to become obsessed with Victor and he molested her over and over again.
Eugenia was very jealous of all the attention Victor gave Viki. Viki always felt her mother resented her. Viki would later create an alternate personality of her mother "Jean Randolph" who would be the exact opposite of what Eugenia was. Jean is Viki's representation of what Eugenia should've been like to extreme measures. Jean will stop at nothing to protect Viki unlike Eugenia who was terribly jealous of her.
