Lorenzo is a vintage Italian tender engine from Verona. He has a coach named Beppe.

Biography

Thomas & Friends

Whilst looking for treasure with his coach Beppe, Lorenzo once wandered into an old mine, where he ran out of steam and soon became stuck. He was left in the mine for years, becoming a legendary tale to those above ground and used as a cautionary tale by Gina about curiosity.

When Thomas got lost in the same mine, he eventually found Lorenzo with Beppe in tow. When the mine began to collapse, Thomas pushed the duo to an exit by the sea. Luckily, Stefano was there and was able to rescue the trio. After being mended, Lorenzo and Beppe were put back to work on the Italian Railway.

Lorenzo became excited when famous opera singer Dame Bella Canto came to perform, however he was disappointed to find that Gina had already been asked to take her. Thinking that Dame Bella Canto had not chosen him because of Beppe, he tricked him into working with Gina so that he could find a bigger coach to take Dame Bella Canto by surprise with, making her want to travel with him instead.

When Dame Bella Canto asked him to take a different route to The Colosseum, he ended up getting lost and regretted leaving Beppe behind. Fortunately, Beppe and Gina were able to find him and he was able to apologise and reunite with his faithful coach.

Later, Thomas wanted to sing opera like Lorenzo and Beppe. The pair tried to teach him, but eventually gave up, concluding that he simply was not cut out for it.

Personality

Lorenzo was famous not only for his wandering curiosity, but his intense love of opera singing. He loves the sound of his own voice and being the centre of attention, especially while singing operatic ditties with his small coach, Beppe. Whilst his speaking voice may be deep, Lorenzo has a classical tenor singing voice. Additionally, his quests for fame can lead him to be impulsive at times.

His curiosity and impulsive actions often get the better of him, which lead to both him and Beppe getting lost. Lorenzo loves fame more than anything else when given the chance, but is never too vain to part from Beppe permanently, often reconciling at the end of their escapades.

Lorenzo highly believes in luck and superstitions, as he and Beppe instantly recognize anything that has to do with good or bad luck. Lorenzo will always do certain things that is considered good luck, such as; wearing a cornicello (an Italian good luck charm) around his buffer, toching iron by bumping into another set of buffers, turning right, holding his breath in tunnels, and avoiding things that supposedly bring bad luck, such as going under a ladder, spilling salt, carring bananas, interacting with a black cat, etc.
