Sky Lane is a female minifigure who appears in the video game and LEGO theme, Island Xtreme Stunts. A character with the same name but different look also appears in LEGO Universe, as an NPC, or non-playable character. She originally appeared in LEGO Island Comic Adventures under the name Luna Rom, but was massively redesigned for Island Xtreme Stunts.
Sometime between the events of LEGO Island 2 and Island Xtreme Stunts, Sky Lane moved to LEGO Island and became friends with the game series' main protagonist, Pepper Roni. When Pepper becomes star of Xtreme Stunts, then being filmed on the Island, Sky also becomes his sidekick.
Although she does not generally appear during minigames of the filming of the movie, Sky somehow always manages to appear in the final shot. Because of this, she does not appear again until near the end, when the Brickster attempts to use a supercomputer within his tower to deconstruct the entire world. As Pepper fights the Brickster atop the tower, Sky appears via helicopter and gains access to the computer.
She is unable to stop the computer's countdown, but reprograms it to self-destruct. Pepper, the Infomaniac, and Sky are then able to escape the tower on board her helicopter, leaving the brickster to fall with his tower and be captured and sent back to jail.
In the theme Island Xtreme Stunts, the chain of events is the same. Sky is still Pepper's friend and helps him fight mischief on LEGO Island. She chases after the Brickster by motortrike, fights his henchmen and the Brickster himself at the Information Center, (Known as the Xtreme Tower), and wake-boards behind the criminal on the island coast.
Sky Lane does not appear again for almost ten years until the release of the online game, LEGO Universe. In it, Sky is a captain with Nexus Force Faction Venture League, and is in command of the starship Venture Explorer, a tutorial world. When the ship is attacked by the game's enemy, the Maelstrom, Sky oversees that players get off the ship safely.
She later appears in Avant Gardens, the second game world, and is delighted that players have survived. She offers several missions to join the Nexus Force, return to the starship, and recover bowling balls for her.
Later, players will find the Sky Lane has a sister on Nimbus Station named Velocity Lane, a race master, who runs the Vertigo Loop Racetrack. Another sister, Peppermint Lane, appeared for a short time as the host of a race called Space Blizzard in the winter world, Frostburgh. All three sisters are daredevils in nature.

Sky Lane was supposed to be Pepper's girlfriend IIRC, I think Sky's name changed probably a few time, like many other characters during production, often not all references were updated to reflect that. I think her creation was in part to produce a capable character who could impress Pepper with similar skills, in an effort to give him someone to have a crush on. We weren't sure how far we wanted to push the relationship idea though and looked to find a comfortable middle ground suitable for the age of the audience. I can't remember the details of Luna Rom exactly, but there's a very strong chance that they both came from the same idea. With different teams working on different projects or parts of the project, there's every chance that the character was using one particular name and design when that team worked on their part.
According to Dean Roskell, she was intended to be a character who could impress Pepper with similar skills, with a goal to have someone he could have a crush on.
- She has two sisters named Velocity and Peppermint in LEGO Universe.
- She is shown to be smart and kindhearted.
- The LEGO comic builder confirms that Luna Rom and Sky Lane are the same character.
