Lacy Rand is a fictional female Human student in the Battlestar Galactica television series who was portrayed on screen by Magda Apanowicz. Lacy Rand is the best friend of Zoe Graystone who was meant to go with her and Zoe's boyfriend, Ben Stark to Gemenon. At the very last minute, Lacy Rand decides not to get onboard the train, a decision which saves her life. The transporter that she had planned to get on is blown up. With the knowledge that she could have been on that train, she begins to get survivors guilt and turns to Sister Clarice Willow for help.
After everything has calmed down, Zoe's virtual avatar calls Lacy and tells Lacy that she must help her get to Gemenon. The problem is that Zoe's avatar is stuck inside a giant heavy Cylon prototype. Zoe turns to her school friends for help.
Lacy gets more and more involved with The Soldiers of the One as they are the only ones who can help her fulfil her obligation to Zoe's avatar to get to Gemenon. Lacy's involvement also involves the failed and abortive operation to bomb Caprica City space port so that they can kill Sister Clarice Willow as she returns from Gemenon.
Lacy feels regret that she wasn't able to help her real life flesh and blood and plans instead to help the avatar of Zoe. Zoe gets Lacy to promise that Lacy will get the Cylon that Zoe is hiding in to Gemenon. In order to do this, Lacy becomes a member of the Soldiers of the One. The Soldiers of the One have fractured between Sister Clarice Willow and Barnabus on Caprica. As the person who is helping Lacy is with the Barnabus factions, Lacy stays with that group.
Barnabus orders that Sister Clarice Willow is to be assassinated. Two attempts fail to kill Sister Clarice, first time is when a device blows up Clarice's car which Lacy had swapped earlier whilst at school. The second attempt failed when Sister Clarice Willow returned from Gemenon. The second time, Clarice came after and killed Barnabus but didn't kill Lacy. Clarice believed that Lacy was more useful alive. Clarice instructed Lacy to go to Gemenon which Lacy obeyed.
Lacy was sent to Gemenon after the second failed attempt to kill Clarice. On Gemenon was the Blessed Mother, the supreme leader of the religious fundamentalists. Over the course of the last episodes, Lacy receives training in military techniques from the Soldiers of the One including being tricked that their transporter was hijacked and her friends were being executed.
At the Soldiers of the One base were Cylon Centurions who were the enforcers on the camp, killing anyone who disobeyed the words of the organisation. When one of the trainees was about to be executed, Lacy ordered the Cylon to stand down, which it did. When STO personnel tried to re-order the Cylons to do anything, they refused unless Lacy gave the order.
At the end of the series, Lacy used the Cylons to cause an uprising in the STO camp. At the very end, it is revealed that Lacy Rand has now become the Blessed Mother and is in charge of the religious fundamentalists.
