Emma Decody is a quirky, pretty, intelligent seventeen-year-old girl who has cystic fibrosis and an “old soul”. She gets an almost immediate crush on Norman and is always showing up on his doorstep.



Emma has cystic fibrosis. She lives with her dad above an antique shop that he runs. They migrated from Manchester, U.K. after her father quit his job as a professor to focus on taking care of her. Emma's life expectancy is 27 years, but she is currently on a waiting list for a lung transplant.

Season 1 Emma helps Norman Bates in First You Dream, Then You Die when she finds him vomiting at their school, and develops a crush on him.

In Nice Town You Picked, Norma..., Emma volunteers as Norman's partner for a presentation for Miss Watson's class.

In The Truth, Emma said that her mother has been gone for eight years.
