She is very caring and protective of others as she is always concerned about how others feel. She even takes care of Christina Wendall when she left the mental institute, even though Christina had come to kill her. She also showed signs of being spiritual as she was reading a book on angels and believed she was impregnated by an angel. Towards the end of the last season, Letha has grown from a young, flighty teenaged girl, to someone who is definitely deserving of the Godfrey name. She has become strong-willed, and will do anything to protect those she loves. This, among other reasons, is why she was supposedly murdered during childbirth at the Godfrey Institute to get her baby.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Letha has blonde hair and blue eyes and is slim and seems to be average height for a woman.


Peter RumancekEdit

At first Letha fantasizes of being with Peter while on the school bus. They start off as friends which develops into a relationship and they begin dating. Both Peter and Letha fall deeply in love with each other, and Peter also becomes attached to Letha's unborn daughter. In the last episode, after Letha brings Peter to his mother and cousin, Lynda tells Letha that the reason that Peter was able to come back alive and save her from the vargulf (Christina), was because her love brought him back to her. When Letha is having her baby, she calls Peter and he rushes over to the Godfrey Medical Center in order to be at her side. After Letha dies during childbirth (she is assumed to have been murdered), both Peter and Roman fall apart.

Roman GodfreyEdit

Letha's cousin, or possible half-brother, with whom she shares a close relationship. It's later revealed that Roman impregnated her and is the father of her child.

Norman GodfreyEdit

Letha's father. They share a close relationship, she seems to be closer to her father than to her mother Marie. When she passes away he is seen desperately begging Dr. Johann Pryce to revive his daughter.
