History:Years after the events of Bolt and Laurie. Laurie has become a master mage and has set himself up in a Kingdom called Romantra with Meeka, who has become his familiar. There, he serves the Queen Hisoka as her arcane advisor and bodyguard. As time passed, Laurie and Hisoka became close and Laurie became devoted to her protection and the prosperity of her kingdom. Her happiness was his happiness. That is until one night when Laurie had a prophetic dream where Hisoka was being taken away by an old but incredibly powerful wizard. In his dream, Laurie fought back but was vanquished by the massive hideous beasts under the wizard’s command. The nest day, Laurie all but emptied out the royal library searching for the creatures he had seen in his dreams. He learned very little about them, only that they were discovered on a continent far from Romantra. Laurie soon left Romantra, swearing to his queen that he would return once he was sure the threat he had seen in his dreams was no more. After weeks of travel by land and sea, Laurie came upon the kingdom of Lustra. He spent some time roaming the streets and resting at the inns, learning as much as he could about this new land he had set foot in. He then learned about Princess Heart and her Knights of Heart. Laurie Reasoned that if he became a knight himself, he could help them stop the threat here. Romantra and his Queen would be safe. Laurie joined the Knights of Heart as a Mage, becoming the 154th knight in the order. He also got the nickname “Laurie the Rover”, as he had come to Lustra from another kingdom.
His relationship with Heart and her Knights is a good one. After helping to thwart the latest attempt to kidnap Princess Heart, Laurie has been mostly accepted by the other knights in spite of his being from another kingdom. He has only met Princess Heart a few times, however, her acceptance and general optimism towards him caused her to grow on him a bit. She may not be HIS queen, but he will fight for her none the less. For protecting Princess Heart now means protecting his beloved Hisoka in the future.
Personality: Laurie is kind, quick witted, polite, and outspoken. At least, he is to those he is on good terms with. To everyone else, Laurie can come off as reclusive, sarcastic, and snarky. Laurie has lived as a recluse for most of his life and prefers the company of a few. He is also not one to let power get to his head. For those above him, he is respectful, for his equals, he is civil, and for those not as skilled as him, he is helpful.If you were to invite him to a large party, you would see him somewhere in the back, drinking juice (he doesn’t normally drink alcohol) and just observing. On the other hand, Laurie is always open minded when it comes to meeting new people and is quick to accept them as allies. He loves his queen and will do anything to ensure her safety and the prosperity of her kingdom. In spite of that, he genuinely wants to lend the Knights as much help as he can, though he is prone to acting on a whim without consulting anyone first.Laurie believes very strongly in certain ideals, which has resulted in some of the knights believing that he has a black and white perspective of the world. He detests slavery and the sentient fur trade with a passion. Mages who use their power to cause deliberate harm will get little mercy from him. He also have very little patience for people in places of power that he thinks are incompetent.
Mercer- Laurie’s first friend in Lustra. Laurie regards Mercer as both an equal and a dear friend. The also have similar abilities, as they are both mages that wield swords.
Skyver- Laurie’s teacher in the way of the sword. Laurie has a lot of respect for her, despite her seeming lack of confidence in herself. He wants to help her to see what he sees in her. Laurie is now also a member of Skyver’s group of spies, a fact that Laurie takes pride in.
Thalassa- A fellow lightning enthusiast.
Drake Adder- Laurie and Drake clash, a lot. However, that’s only because they are so alike in nature. Laurie does have some respect for him and will follow his orders.
Rowan Redblade- The first person Laurie ever revealed his true motives to. He trusts Rowan unconditionally and is always willing to give her his aid when she needs it.
Jesiax Redblade- Laurie and Jesiax have been on good terms since day 1, however, Laurie didn’t really consider Jesiax as a friend until after his return from a solo mission not too long ago.
Nikara- At first, Laurie and Nikara butt heads due to Laurie’s lack of discipline and regard for proper protocol. Despite this, Laurie has a lot of respect for her and is at least trying to get into the habit of following the rules.
Gedda- A rabbit seed who fell in love with Laurie while he was infiltrating the estate of a corrupt noble named Gavora. Thet met again after the Gala, where the two forged a very strong but still platonic bond.
Rhea- Laurie bore witness to Rhea’s experiment on Thalassa, and felt the gaping void left behind when a part of Thalassa’s magic was ripped out. For this, Laurie detests Rhea and would gladly follow Nikara’s order to kill on sight.
Magus- When Magus came to break Rhea out of prison, Laurie took him on alone. Needless to say, Magus barely noticed Laurie efforts and Rhea got away. Magus has a permanent part on Laurie’s shit list.
Gavora- One day, Laurie tagged along on Rowan’s visit to a lady by the name of Gavora. When entering her estate for the first time, Laurie discovered a woman who used her power to harm others, treated her many seed servants as things, and even regarded Skyver as an investment because of her pelt. Laurie took one look at Gavora and her estate and thought “I’m putting a stop to this”. What followed was a complicated and hard fought campaign by both Laurie and Rowan to bring Gavora down. Eventually, it worked, and Gavora was killed by the owner of an arksteel katana that Laurie tricked her into buying. In an act of pure dickishness. Laurie made sure that his smile and goodbuy wave were the last things Gavora saw before her head was cut off.
