Lorinth Jonas is a teacher at Hope's Peak High and the father of Keesha and Jonah Jonas. He is known to be blunt, strict, respectful, understanding, considerate, wise, calm, composed, and laid-back. Lorinth is widely known (pun intended) to have wide hips and a big rump capable of flattening a person. Despite his rather intimidating look, he is calm and collective and knows when to properly react to situations and bringing order when it is needed. Chi is one of Lorinth's students and supportive allies thanks to Lorinth stepping in to back up Chi who has autism. Lorinth also grieved for the loss of his daughter, but manages to pull himself together and comfort his family who still mourns for her.
