When he first arrived on Earth from Pylea in 1996, Lorne set up Caritas on the very spot where he emerged, as it was a mystical "hot spot." Believing that anyone, whether good, evil, or "morally ambiguous," could turn their lives around if given sufficient guidance, Lorne opened his business up as a sanctuary for humans and non-humans alike, even baby-eating demons; the only time he ever banned anyone from the club was an incident involving a group of drug dealers who were selling Orpheus. As Lorne could see the auras and futures of people when they sang, people began coming to Caritas to sing for Lorne in order to be told their futures. Lorne's "no violence" policy was reinforced by a Sanctuary Spell cast by the Transuding Furies, literally rendering his customers incapable of any acts of violence.
The Angel Investigations team soon began visiting Caritas for guidance from Lorne, who initially limited himself to guidance but eventually began giving more direct assistance. Eventually, the bar was destroyed by Charles Gunn's former gang, during which it was discovered that the sanctuary spells did not apply to humans.
Shortly afterwards, Lorne rebuilt Caritas, and the spell was improved to prevent both human and demon violence. However, Daniel Holtz discovered a loophole in the spell by throwing a gasoline barrel and grenade into the bar without being present inside the bar, destroying it once again; after this incident, Lorne shut Caritas down permanently and moved into the Hyperion Hotel.
