Appearance

Height: 5'9”
Weight: 129 lb
Hair Colour: A darkish blonde, she likes to refer to it as “honey blond”
Eyes Colour: An emerald green, one of her more stunning features.
Skin Tone: Laurel has a very “healthy” skin tone, not quite tan but sun-kissed

Laurel's got long blonde hair and green eyes. Those are her best features, in her opinion, and she tries to play them up. Sometimes,when she feels good about herself, she'll try to play up her legs or ass, but she hates admitting she hasn't much of a bust. Her legs are long and toned, but her left thigh bears a scar where a serrated dagger was thrown at her by a sorceress. Another scar cuts across just under her breasts from Atroce's blade. Her face has rounded cheeks and a pointed chin,and her ears are a bit longer than the average- something she also feels is a beauty point. She's always been self-conscious of her appearance, so these things matter! She braids her hair all the way down to her waist- long is pretty, but it gets in the way! She wears mainly forest tones- her woodsman's leather leggings and arm guards which run all the way up to her green archer's tunic. Sure, it's a cliché look, but she's from the deep forest and proud of it! She smells of bay leaf, usually on purpose, and her default expression seems to be a cocky smirk. She has an inherited leaf pendant of silver and emerald that she never takes off.

Disposition: Neutral Good.

Personality & Mannerisms

Laurel grew up on stories about a brave heroine and a handsome noble, about powerful sorceresses and benevolent priests. She longs for that kind of life- adventure, travel, magic, love. To see the galleons in full sail, to ride the steam trains, to fight evildoers. She jumps at the chance to fight with mercenaries or explore caverns, even if it's not all it's said to be. She loves to fight and has an amazing short fuse. Maybe she never really learned to be herself around people, but she breeds conflict and revels in competition. She's a bit abrasive, pushy, and blunt, but a worthy adversary or gracious competitor will earn her deepest respect. She's highly prideful and will take a blow to her reputation or self-image as a deep wound, restlessly trying to regain that ounce of respect. Somewhere inside, she's a lonely girl. Fierce on the outside, but her biggest fear is to look and see herself alone in the wide world. She draws herself to groups, where she gives herself passionately to the pack. She leads those she considers beneath her and follows those she respects, but loves all. Laurel's never had much luck with guys- the guys who're watching her not-quite fill out are the same ones that she'd pull the hair of when she was little. So loosed on the world, she feels that romance is one of the things an adventurer is entitled to. When it comes to sex or romance, Laurel is still a pubescent girl, worried about her looks, prone to constant flirting, and awkward about her sexuality.

Biography

Character Age: 31
Birthdate: March 15
Birthplace: The Alfheim town of Maple
Occupation: Hunter

Laurel's parents were famous in their day- a talented swordfighter and hero who rescued a noble, heir to a duchess, from certain death. The swordfighter was surrounded by a team of loyal companions and wielded an enchanted greatsword called the Dragon Lady. That was Laurel's mother, Aria Firebrand. Her father was the son of a duchess, Nikola Luisliu. When Laurel was eight, Nikola was tried for treason and imprisoned. Laurel was raised in her mother's home village deep in the forests of Alfheim. She was raised on stories of battles and adventure, so as soon as she had the chance, she left home to seek her fortune. Comrades, boyfriends, monsters, all those things came and went and she hadn't found what she sought yet. After her last boyfriend left her, Laurel has spent the last two years training her skills as a hunter in the forests of Payon. She followed the wolf pack known to be there for so long that she considers herself in tune with the lupine mindset. It was rather jarring for her to meet a Lupus for the first time after she left the woods. Her deep admiration of wolves was upset a little when one stabbed her. Laurel wants to be friends with people. Sometimes more. She flirts and shares and smiles and gives herself to everyone around. Some seem to take that well, like the bard Thom or the wizard Vorast, but some leave Laurel wondering if they really care for her, and others, like Aviyara Lexicon begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting, just burn her up. Laurel's constant driving desire for companionship makes her open- to odd people and strange situations, but also to a familiar attitude that can bother people who confuse stiff manners with respect. It can help her make friends out of loners, but it can also get her into fights at the drop of a hat.

Acquaintances

  • Menet Sheshafi: Though their parents were once adventuring comrades-in-arms, a falling out caused them to pass their mutual rivalry down to their children, in Laurel's case, a mild distrust of svartalfar.
  • Ilya 'Lupa' Telune: Laurel met Ilya while she was fascinated with all things lupine. Ilya met Laurel when she was bitter with all non-furred humanoids. Though Laurel tried to be friendly, they started off… rocky. Laurel finally decided to challenge Ilya to hand-to hand combat, hoping to earn the girl's respect. She lost the fight and has resigned herself to being Ilya's submissive. Laurel fears her confused feelings about Lupa will ruin their friendship.
  • Vorast Elandor: It wasn't long between their first meeting and their first flirtation and soon the ailouros wizard had become someone Laurel wished to impress. Not long after he declared an intention to become more serious, he vanished. His death hit her hard.
  • Sophia Valencis: Sophie and Laurel became friends almost immediately. Laurel trusts the Ailouros instinctively, with her secrets and even her body.
  • Aviyara Lexicon: What started as an argument or two over the preparations for Schwartzvald's invasion of Payon became a deadly feud. Laurel dislikes Lexicon and doesn't understand why he abhors her so- her arguing with him drove him to simply knife her.
  • Thom Merrilin: Thom was a friend who'd always show Laurel a bit of kindness. He waited until his deathbed to confess love for her, leaving Laurel fairly distraught after his death. She resolved to live for fun more, in his memory, when she couldn't stand to wallow in sadness any longer.
