Personality: Rory has a personality matching his twin's. They're both wild, crazy, hyper and immature. They also work together to wreak havoc. the only difference is Rory is the smarter of the two.

Bio: Rory, along with his brother Riley, are the younger cousins of Ryan O'Donnell. They too were born with the psychic/medium genes even though it shows up in mainly women in their line. Rory inherits only medium powers, being able to contact the dead and even allows spirits to possess his body, something Ryan has tried to stop him from doing many times before.

Over the years, Riley and Rory got more attention than Ryan because their powers seemed to be stronger than his, especially when the twins combined theirs. Despite this they continuously followed Ryan around, bugging him to no end until they realized that Ryan's annoyance became their entertainment and they haven't stopped since.

Although their family is not as rich as Ryan's, they were able to get into Misery High via scholarships. Rory is, of course, the smart one. Now he can't wait to get to pestering Ryan again.

Relations: Son to Neve and Connor McCormick, twin brother to Riley McCormick, nephew to Shane and Norma O'Donnell, younger cousin to Rhonda, Beatrice, Nicole, and Ryan O'Donnell.

Powers: Rory can often sense when ghosts are nearby, feeling as if something was strange or off. He can communicate to those "on the other side" and will even let ghosts possess him. He has telepathy between himself, Riley and Ryan. Combined with his brother's powers, he can see a ghost's complete history.

Weaknesses: Since Rory allows ghosts to possess him, he's VERY vulernable to supernatural attacks, and even being forced out of his own body. He's very reckless with his own soul.


  • As immature as he is, he's usually seen curled up with a book if not pulling pranks or bothering Ryan.
  • He was recently attacked by the Tech Ghost, now he's a little more careful.
