Lois Calvin is Alby's over-protective mother.
Before The Six Sacred StonesEdit
During a parent-teacher night at Alby's school for the gifted, Lois fretted about the Physical Education teacher's forced sports for Alby to Jack West Jr., father of Alby's best friend Lily West. Jack convinced the teacher to take it easy on Alby on her behalf.
Lois and her husband went away on holiday, and left Alby at Jack's farm.
Unbeknowst to her, Alby was caught up in the mission to restore the ancient Machine. She called him while they were in Egypt, and initially spoke to an expasperated Zoe Kissane before she put Alby on. He assured her that everything was fine.
