Laurence is a character who appears as the tritagonist in Minecraft Diaries: Rise Of Phoenix Drop, a main character in Minecraft Diaries:War Of The Magi & VOID Paradox,and a supporting character in Minecraft Diaries:The Realm Protector. He became a shadow Knight in season 1 but was we did not see his form until season 2 During Season 1, he was at first the head guard of Meteli and then the second in command guard of Phoenix Drop and in Season 2, one of Aphmau's main guards. In Season 3, he now resides in the Nether and leads a rebellion after refusing to answer the Calling.
Laurence was an orphan who was adopted by the old lord of Meteli, Joh. Laurence failed to protect Joh from a brainwashed Sasha as he turned away for one second. When he turned back, Joh had an arrow pierced through his heart. After his adoptive father's death, he considered Hayden as a father figure, but still sometimes calls him by his name. Laurence became Head Guard of the village of Meteli and has an adoptive sister named Cadenza. Aphmau met him during her quest for the Crazy Cat Lady's potion for her over sized cat Mittens. Laurence instantly fell in love with Aphmau.
It is discovered that the Chicken Shaman (aka Castor) was captured by the Shadow Lord and was held prisoner. Laurence agreed to go to the Nether with Aphmau in order to save Castor. They succeeded, but in order to hold back the Shadow Lord, Laurence stayed back and did not return for a short period of time.
He was then put into a torture routine and was turned into a Shadow Knight. Later, he tells Aphmau that the only reason he did not fully succumb to the Shadow Lord is because he kept thinking of her, his true love. Then his best friend, a Wyvern named Ungrth, rescued him from the Nether before his full Shadow Knight transformation. But, sadly, Ungrth died after breaking through the realm barriers. Laurence lost his sight for a short period of time after he came back, but regained it now with pale blue eyes instead of lime green, thanks to the statue of Lady Irene.
Laurence has traveled on many adventures with Aphmau to villages all around, and protects her with his life. It is hinted at in several episodes that Aphmau may love Laurence romantically. Laurence has also grown close to Garroth and Dante, whom are also guards that protect Phoenix Drop. He considers them as his "brothers".
After Scaleswind's attack on Phoenix Drop, Aphmau gave Laurence the pendant so he could protect it. He was knocked out by a brainwashed Garroth, waking up in another dimension. With the help of the Aphmau from that dimension and her adopted son, he was able to return to Phoenix Drop, albeit without any mention of the experience.
Laurence, Aphmau, Katelyn, Aaron, Garroth, Kenmur and Emmalyn went to the Irene Dimension to Stop Zane from getting Irene's Relic. Then Zoey appeared with a portal to help them escape the dimension but in order to stop Zane, Garroth stayed back and confessed his love to Aphmau and asked her to find a better man. After going through the portal, the group, excluding Garroth, found themselves on the outskirts of the ruins of Phoenix Drop. Aphmau took it really hard to see her village decayed. Laurence decides to guard Aphmau (although she's no longer a lord) as she has been through a lot and he still loves her .
In ''The Vows We Take'', it is discovered that Laurence is able to transform into his Shadow Knight form. This is caused by the jealousy that overwhelms him as Aphmau is forced into marriage with Fenrir, the prince of the South-Eastern Wolf Tribe. He slaughters all the werewolves at the wedding, including the king of the tribe. He is quoted saying "Well, that was not as messy as I was hoping for" After killing the king or leader wolf. He is just about to kill Fenrir when Aphmau comes and tries to persuade him of not doing so, which ended up with them kissing, bringing him back to reality. As Aphmau knew that was reason he didn't fully become was her, so she kissed him to help him remember his love for Aphmau. After escaping, Laurence makes a promise to both Aphmau and Garroth that he will not pursue Aphmau since Garroth sacrificed himself in the Irene dimension. He promised to wait until Garroth returned before he would "make Aphmau his". Afterwards, at Scaleswind, shadow souls appear, he goes with Aphmau to fight them, but he lost control of his shadow knight power and turns his blade on Aphmau, and is knocked out by Aaron. After waking up he then kisses Aphmau again to "seal" his promise of not turning to a Shadow Knight until he can fully control it.
Aphmau, Katelyn, and Laurence return home to Phoenix Drop and discover that Dmitri and Nekoette were stow-aways on their ship and had come to Phoenix Drop with them. When Aphmau returns to the Dream Realm and sees Garroth they talk about what's been going on between her and Laurence. When Aphmau wakes up, Katelyn tells her that Laurence watched over her all night since she went to the Dream Realm.
In ''My Golden Friend''; Aphmau was having a peaceful sleep and she awoke to find Laurence was sitting beside her on the bed when Aphmau became flustered and started assuming 'things' happened the night before. Travis heard Aphmau screaming and rushed in the room and asked what happened. Laurence simply answered "Cockroach" and denied sitting by Aphmau's bed. Later, Aphmau decides to go to the bathroom and get ready and Laurence asks if he should "Surprise her in the washroom as well" Aphmau replies with a hard slap/punch or a falcon punch/slap.
In ''Into the Forest''; Laurence has become a bit more on edge due to their situation of having to flee to Phoenix Drop through the cursed forest after O'Khasis is attacked by the Tu'la region. When the group reaches the forest, Aphmau is distressed about the safety of Aaron, seeing that Aaron was left behind by the group in Nahakra Village. Aaron appears in the forest by coincidence and Aphmau runs to him; almost embracing him out of joy. Laurence approaches Aphmau and accuses her of showing too much affection towards people who aren't important (he subtly mentioned Aaron and Vylad). Aphmau realizes that he was jealous of her showing any affection to any other male. When the group decides to stop in a clearing against Aphmau's will, Aphmau is displeased and runs into a man named Chad in the forest. Aphmau and Chad try and run back to camp, but end up being captured by Hyria, a witch. Laurence obviously really cares about Aphmau a lot, but he is kind of letting his emotions get the better of him.
At Emmalyn and Kenmur's wedding in ''A Phoenix Drop Wedding'', Laurence was Kenmur's best man. Then in the following episode, Laurence got Aphmau's approval for him to turn into his Shadow Knight form only because so that he can control it and be with Aphmau, we can only hope he can control it for Aphmau.
By ''Vylad's Song'', as Aphmau was asleep, Laurence walks in about to take a nap himself but finds Aphmau awake. He questioned her if she saw Garroth in her dreams again, but she did not. Aphmau then becomes frustrated, and Laurence quieted her by hugging her for a long while. When they pulled apart, Laurence simply said "I'm sorry, I can't be Garroth, nor do I know the key to seeing him again. However know that I am here, and I will do whatever I can...My lord." This calmed the tension around them.
Laurence, Aphmau, and the rest of the crew landed at an uncharted island due to Travis' book getting out of hand from him not keeping it in check in a while.
Laurence, Aphmau, and Aaron explored the eastern side of the island while Katelyn, Chad, and Vylad explored the west. Laurence then finds himself fallen into a hole and landed on his butt. Aphmau and Aaron follow him down and met some old friends, the Wyverns. They met a very well known Wyvern that goes by the human name of Raven. Laurence was not too fond of these Wyverns since they exiled his own, ungrth
Laurence then finds Aphmau holding a baby and Aaron without his jacket. Thanks to his experience as an orphan living at an orphanage, he is able to help by getting milk for the little one. Later on, the baby is given the name Lilith Garnet.
Afterwards, they found themselves on an island where they encountered the Demon Warlock. This forces Laurence to become enraged and revert into his Shadow Knight form. After their encounter, Laurence almost "rips Travis' head off" after finding out he's the son of the Demon Warlock.
Long after that misunderstanding, everyone went off exploring. They found themselves in range of what looks like what is left of a village. Laurence, Katelyn, and Aphmau explore a temple that is still standing over everything else that looked like the one they saw in Irene's Dimension.
As Laurence and Katelyn were arguing, Aphmau walked over and Laurence and Aphmau fell through the floor and on top of each other (Aphmau on top of Laurence) into what looks like some kind of a dungeon. They explored the dungeon and found some interesting things on Lady Irene, including a mosaic that depicts the final battle between the Divine Warriors and the Shadow Lord.
In "Her Grief", Laurence and Vylad, both Shadow Knights, have been missing for about 2 weeks. This odd behavior is noticed by Garroth, a close friend to Aphmau. The issue is also mentioned in "Ivy and the Wolf", as Vylad states, "It's Laurence...I think he's in trouble."
In ''Always With You'', it is stated by Vylad that the Nether is calling out to him, as it is named ''The Calling''. Vylad mentioned that no one should talk to him or go near him as he needs to realize that he isn't normal; and that he is a Shadow Knight. He needs to lose all emotion and he must do this on his own or the Nether will be all he thinks about.
In ''A Lord and Her Guards'', Laurence attacks Aphmau in his Shadow Knight form while she is holding Ivy down, thinking that she is Zane. Just as he is about to kill Aphmau, Garroth comes back to his senses and stops him. Sadly, Ivy got the chance to escape while this was happening. Laurence travels with Aphmau back to Phoenix Drop. In ''Spa Day'', he was spotted spying on Aphmau while she was about to reveal who she had a crush on. He was there together with Garroth, Dante and Travis. They were pretty shocked when they were spotted by Lucinda.
In ''Shadows of the Past'', Aphmau thinks she sees Aaron, but it turns out that it was just an Imp. Later when Aphmau is grieving, Laurence talks to her. He demanded to know what Aphmau's relationship was with Aaron. Aphmau refuses to tell him, but he tries to force her. He is stopped by Garroth, who says that Aphmau needs some time for herself because she is still grieving. Laurence says that it's Garroth's fault that she is grieving in the first place and walks away.
In ''She's Pregnant!?'', Vincent talks to Laurence and asks if he has answered the calling yet. He advises Laurence to not let his pride control him. Laurence gets angry and says that Vincent shouldn't tell him what to do. He wants to attack Vincent, but Vincent manages to stop him. Later in the episode he overhears Aphmau telling her friends that she is pregnant with Aaron's child. He is angry about it and kills some plants. Laurence is very upset and mad about this and leaves.
In ''The Angel Irene'', he is seen standing in front of the Nether Portal with Michi and Sasha watching. He is about to answer the Calling. It is unknown why, but he bust Michi and Sasha out of prison and helped them escape at one point earlier that night. Laurence says that he needs look for a person before entering the Nether portal. It is unknown who he is talking about, but it is highly speculated that it could be Shad/The Shadow Lord.
In "A Goddess Divine", contrary to what fans believed that Laurence will become evil, he did not and instead created a rebellion along with Zenix in the Nether and now resides in it. In "The Nether" , Aphmau, Garroth, Katelyn, and Zane head into the Nether to go find Laurence. Zane leads them into a castle and gets attacked by Laurence. Zane denies fighting Laurence, and shows him Aphmau. Laurence gets furious over Aphmau being there, and denies Aphmau trying to help him. He's interrupted by feeling the presence of Shad, and tells Aphmau, Katelyn and Garroth to leave. They refuse, and Laurence pushes Aphmau and Katelyn off the bridge onto the floor beneath them. Laurance tells Garroth to hide, and confronts Shad on his own. Laurence fights Gene, but Aphmau sees Shad and becomes frozen at the sight of him. Aphmau, Katelyn, and Garroth leave the Nether, leaving Laurence fighting Gene. In "Our Daughter", he is seen at his base fighting Gene, the former episode because of Shad's order while he handles Aphmau and the latter were interrupted by Zenix.
Side Stories Edit
Just like in the main series, Laurence is one of the main characters in side stories.
Beach Vacation Edit
Laurence is taken to the beach with Aphmau, Garroth and the others, but Zane takes the spot Garroth wants. In the end, Aphmau fights an O'Khasis guard for it. (She kicked butt by the way)
Island Vacation Edit
Laurence goes on a vacation with Aphmau and the others to a beach island theme park. While on a double date with Aphmau, Brendan, and Kawaii~Chan, he pushes Brendan down a slide. He also tricks Garroth into thinking Aphmau is in love with Prince Reese which they then ended up in the island's jail (not Laurence, but Garroth and Brendan) cell for a while. (About 1-2 days.) Yeesh.
Movie Date/Dinner After Movie Edit
Laurence is dragged along to the movies with Brendan who asks Laurence to help him out of the situation because he asked two girls out to the movies, but he doesn't help. Later, he gives Garroth a confidence potion at dinner, which made him act like Laurence for a while (In front of Aphmau) and was soon worn out. He acts as a wingman for Garroth.
Slumber Party Edit
Laurence is one of the guys who decided to sneak into the girl's slumber party, stole all of their pizza and hot wings, then had a slumber party for themselves. Later, he agrees to have a slumber party all together.
Carnival Days Edit
Laurence is taken to the Fall Carnival with Aphmau and the others. He ends up hanging around with Dante and Garroth, later going to the haunted house with the group including Nicole, who the guys found. In the end, Laurence is embarrassed by Garroth "hitting" on him and Katelyn taking pictures. (Thus created the Garroth x Laurence ship) Laurence then runs out of the haunted house with Garroth chasing after from close behind.
Trick Or Treat Edit
Laurence and the other boys were accidentally turned into kids by Lucinda. They go trick or treating with Aphmau and wake up later that day, forgetting everything that happened. After Lucinda returned, she accidentally changes Aphmau's clothes to something more revealing. Because of this, Garroth faints from a nosebleed, Dante gasps, and Laurence whistles. Aphmau is embarrassed but she and Laurence end up carving pumpkins.
The Big Move Edit
Garroth and Laurence think there is something between Aphmau and Aaron, but he is just helping her move. This causes Garroth and Laurence to do some crazy antics to find out where Aphmau is moving to and whether or not there is something between Aphmau and Aaron. In the 4th part, Aaron plays along with their assumption of him and Aphmau by saying they are on a date. As a result of this, Laurence goes into his Shadow Knight form and Garroth goes into his Jury of Nine form, but were defeated by The Aarmau Fans.
Laurence decides that it would be a good idea to move in across the street from Aphmau, Katelyn, and Kawaii~Chan along with Garroth and Dante. However, Aphmau see's it and Dante starts to try and impress her and this leads to trouble between the guys. But when the guys saw Aphmau kiss Zane under the mistletoe. All the boys start to watch My Little Horsies (parody of My Little Pony) to step up their game because Zane and Aphmau watch it. With no luck Laurence and Dante end up drawing ponies on Garroth's face while he was asleep. Also, on the new year's eve party, when Garroth runs out saying "LAURENCE! APHMAU IS KEEPING SECRETS FROM US AGAIN!", Laurence replies with, "OH NO, SHE DIDN'T!" With a high level of sass involved. Then later Travis moves in and goes to Aaron's house to see what Travis would do but later causes himself, Laurence and even Garroth to become shirtless. Then later Travis makes a BAD "guns" pun that causes Laurence to punch him. Aphmau laughs hysterically at how bad the pun was.
Laurence accompanies Aphmau and the crew to an anime convention, where he is not seen for most of the time, But he is seen in the end when Aphmau and Aaron announce their relationship.
Laurence keeps his protective nature as he looks out for his friends and Aphmau greatly. Although a bit jumpy at times, Laurence tries to endure a situation at the best way possible. However, when pushed to the limit, he can become overprotective, even to the point of infusing with the emotion of rage. He facades his emotions to the point of keeping jealousy bottled up.
Pixel Painters Edit
Aphmau is joined by Laurence and Garroth for a few rounds of Pixel Painters, a mini-game on the Hypixel server. In that video the username of Laurence's character is LaurenceZvahl. That is the only proof so far that Zvahl is Laurence's last name. In the end, he was chased by an angry Garroth, who was threatening to kill him.
His voice actor, Sebastian Todd, stated on Twitter: "For those wondering, yes, Zvahl is Laurence official last name. Cut and dry, Jess and I decided on it the other day.''
Laurence wakes up in the Mod Mod World dimension after he gets knocked out in Episode 100 of Minecraft Diaries Season 1. He figures out that he is in a completely different dimension and that his "alter" wants to kill him. Laurence, along with alternate-dimension Aphmau, go in search of the alter while Modzilla, Polly, Laila, and Tommy try to find a way to stop the void from spreading back at the lab at the end he is left in the world while the rest travel to another dimension
In the earlier episodes, Laurence had long orange hair which was dyed by Cadenza and bright green eyes. He wore a white outfit with dark cuffs and gold sections.
When he turns into his Shadow Knight form his eyes turn red and has red particles floating around him (as he is a shadow knight), a very dark red and black chest plate with matching pants suddenly appears on him and wields a long red sword (assumed as ruby or nether material) with a grayish black handle with a red stone. His hair and skin also becomes lower in saturation that the natural skin and hair color.
When he was blinded, his eye color changed to a pale blueish-grey color and wore a tattered blue shirt and ripped brown pants.
His hair was dyed back to a light brown (his natural hair color) by Cadenza, and he regained his sight. Aphmau joked saying Cadenza dyed it blue causing Laurence to get upset. It was then noted by Aphmau that his eyes had changed to a sky blue.
He wore brown gloves, a white shirt, a blue jacket, and black pants before getting new armor.
When he got a new armor set, given to by Katelyn, it was a brown chain mail with a matching emerald green cape. It also came with a feather on top of the helmet. His new weapon was also given to him by Katelyn, which is an emerald great sword that was blessed by a priest of one of the Divine Warriors. For most of Season 1 he uses an emerald shield.
When they were in Scaleswind, he is given has a green cape around his neck, a brown leather vest from neck to knee and a long-sleeved undershirt to wear.
Laurence mainly wears clothes that are light brown and knight themed. The most notable things people notice is his signature green scarf. In other media, Laurence wears sweaters and jackets that are green in color.
Laurence used to be a huge casanova and tried to keep his cool but sometimes he could be extremely hot headed. He's always jumping to conclusions, but it's just in his nature to be careful. He states that after becoming a Shadow Knight, he is more impatient when things don't turn out like he wants to (possible foreshadowing). He admitted in an episode that he would put himself in front of any sword to defend Aphmau from harm. He also is very stubborn, persistent and funny. In ''The Amulet's Secret'', he also reverted Garroth back to normal with some words of wisdom. He can make things awkward at times by flirting with Aphmau, but he will do anything for those he cares about. He is also a playful person and always seems to have a smile on his face, and he cheers people up during their darkest hours. In ''Her Power'', Cadenza stated he was playing the "nice guy" with Aphmau and how he never thinks about his own feelings and has always helped other people be happy. Cadenza was also angry that Aphmau never gave him a chance. Cadenza said she just wanted Laurence to be happy, and Laurence replied saying, "I'm happy just to be around her." In another episode, Vincent (It's discovered he is a full Shadow Knight, having killed his lord.) and Laurence got into a fight, since Vincent called Laurence a "Premature Shadow Knight" and Laurence yelled at Vincent because he was flirting with Aphmau- which got Laurence so angry he pulled out his sword and met Vincent in the middle of the room, swords pushing against each other. Aphmau broke it up by asking him to go outside and take a breather.
Laurence has also been known to get jealous of any guy who has any emotional interaction with Aphmau. He is a naturally sassy person, who's good with funny comebacks, and he cares deeply for Garroth and Dante, who he considers brothers.
As a Shadow Knight, he struggles greatly with the Calling. Vylad states that he is different than other shadow knights, and is becoming "overwhelmed by his emotions." This causes him to become hard to speak to and stay around, as he is easier to temper. I don't want to be one that assumes things, but he seems to be slowly breaking on the inside. His emotional struggle makes him disappear for many episodes at a time. That is, until ''The Angel Irene'', where he bust Michi and Sasha out of prison and also answered the Calling, stepping through the Nether portal. Maybe it all was too much for him to handle.
Despite the Calling pulling him to join the Shadow Lord and fight against Aphmau, he managed to refuse and start a rebellion, showing that his love of Aphmau is still making him unwilling to become evil.
After some traumatic events such as Michi's devious behavior and werewolf slaughter, Laurence has kept to himself occasionally. He's managed to keep his mind and atmosphere calm despite all the negative events that has occurred.
Laurence never got to be Aphmau's and he is just trying to keep up things and get everything on good times. But the voices and noises in his head is getting worst. Vylad tries to help but nothing works, and he is still out of control.
In MyStreet Season 1, Laurence shares some similar traits to his Diaries counterpart, in terms of his collected and often eccentric nature. Some differences are noticeable: He's often also shown as spastic, smug, and easily annoyed by Dante or Travis' antics. He's shown as the most reasonable and often plays the peacekeeper whenever the other guys bicker. However, he's just as bent on winning Aphmau over as the rest of the male characters, and sometimes goes to lengths extreme enough to the point of almost juvenile.
He's not seen at all in Season 2 of MyStreet.
With his return in Season 3, Laurence appears to be much more level-headed. He's shown as much more optimistic and shows signs of getting along with those he rarely used to, such as Aaron or Zane (though his relationship with Zane is still one of viewing each other as an annoyance), and the people he gets along with already is even more so, showing kindness and even support for Garroth, Aphmau, and Dante.
In Phoenix Drop High, Laurence is much calmer and his eccentricities are much more visible, showing no fear when it comes to approaching a girl he's never met before (Aphmau) and automatically aiming to win her over. His flirtatious nature is on display even more so than his Diaries counterpart, almost being the school's token player. (playa)
Aphmau: Laurence has always been a very big casanova, speaking his feelings for Aphmau frequently, which often ends up in them making a joke of it or in a subject change. At first his advances seemed playfully flirtatious in a very non-committal and joking way, but later it became clear that he really did love Aphmau, ultimately ending up with his sacrifice of staying behind in the Nether. After his return, the two ended up becoming very good friends and often joked around and had fun. Laurence still has open feelings towards Aphmau, but for now it simply sits at a very happy and content friendship as Garroth is stuck indefinitely in Lady Irene's dimension, so he feels like trying to be with Aphmau would be unfair to Garroth. But he still loves her ever since the day they met and still hopes of making her his someday. Aphmau has kissed Laurence when she was going to get married to the werewolf prince but then Laurence slaughtered them all and shared a kiss with Aphmau. Later on, Laurence still continued to be romantic and kissed Aphmau. He does, however, show jealousy when she shows affection towards another guy such as Aaron or Vylad.
As of late, his relationship with Aphmau is not as great as it used to be, as he seems to hate her for betraying him and breaking his heart. However, it is possible he may still harbor feelings for her, as he is seen trying to keep her hidden from Shad(even though Shad saw her anyways). So for now, their relationship is a very complicated one.
Garroth: Laurence often pokes fun at Garroth about his feelings towards Aphmau. Though they may admire the same woman, that doesn't stop them from being friends in the least. They don't have a rivalry, or even act bitter towards one another -- in fact, they both state on separate occasions that they felt like brothers. Laurence, Dante, and Garroth all mesh well, as best friends and as guards.
Katelyn: It is shown that in Season 2 of Minecraft Diaries, that Laurence and Katelyn have a close relationship with eachother. In the episode "The Jury's Bane", Katelyn asks Aphmau to talk to Sasha after having visited her, where she started talking as if she knew more about Laurence than the others. She then states: "Look, I normally don't care what he does. Laurence can take care of himself, but he's been acting different since we arrived on the island." This moment shows that Katelyn has been looking out for him and watching over him. Laurence X Katelyn (Laurlyn) was a large ship during the early days of Katelyn's arrival into the series due to the Slumber Party (Side Stories), where the girls are talking about who the hottest guy in Phoenix Drop is, and Katelyn states, "Pardon me for saying this, but... Laurence trumps them all.". Kawaii~Chan also used to ship this in the early days of MyStreet, but it was quick to be shut down by Katelyn. In Fall Carnival Days, which is part of the Autumn Minecraft Side Stories, where Laurence notices that Katelyn isn't having the best time and says, "Geez... Katelyn really seems down about this festival... did she have a bad experience or something?". He then goes on to advise Aphmau to show Katelyn a good time by saying: "Why don't you take Katelyn around around and show her how to have a good time at the carnival.
Cadenza: Cadenza and Laurence are very close. They grew up together as siblings, Laurence having been adopted by Hayden of Meteli. They know each other very well and are protective of one another, and all in all are great siblings to each other. Although Cadenza has said she's more like his mother because she dresses him.
Chicken Shaman Castor: Laurence has known Castor for a long time, since the Chicken Shaman had always been near Meteli. It's a bit of a strange friendship, Castor frequently asking where "Laurence's stupid face" is. But they do enjoy talking and catching up, so they're more 'friendly acquaintances' than anything. Laurence also owes Castor five dollars, however the reason for this is currently unknown. (Castor lowered it to two dollars when Laurence sacrificed himself to save him in Season 1, Episode 40. Apparently, if you sacrifice yourself and are Castor's friend, you get a "friend discount".)
Hayden: Hayden, the old Lord of Meteli, adopted Laurence as a young orphan and raised him with his daughter, Cadenza. Laurence treats him just like if he were his birth father, and vice versa. Even though Laurence is adopted, the three of them are no doubt, a loving and caring family.
Dante: Like Garroth, Laurence is good friends with Dante. All three of the guards not only worked together as Lord Aphmau's guards in Season 1, but as brothers. Although it isn't in the main series on Side Stories Episode 13, "The New Guy", it shows that they can hear each other's thoughts. But Aphmau does put subtle messages in the series like how Vylad was related to Garroth and Zane. But it seems like Garroth and Laurence have much more of a closer relationship
Ungrth: Ungrth, Laurence's pet Wyvern, was a very good friend of Laurence's. Although it is often said that Laurence met Ungrth while he was an adult, this is not true. According to a conversation Laurence and Aphmau had in Season 1, Episode 37, Ungrth has actually been in Laurence's family for several generations. However, whether Laurence meant his adoptive family or biological family is unconfirmed. In the end, Ungrth sacrificed his life to get Laurence out of the Nether to end his suffering. From then on, Laurence would regularly visit Ungrth's grave to honor and remember him.
Table: He and Aphmau fell in love with the same table as a joke.
- Laurence is an English name meaning "man from Laurentum". Laurentum was an ancient Roman city on the west coast of the Italian Peninsula, southwest of Rome.
- Laurence was blind for a short period of time after returning from the Nether.
- In his earliest appearances, Laurance's name was spelled Laurence.
- He said Cadenza looked "like a trash can" in "The Girl From Another Village." episode and was punched.
- In The Slumber Party side stories, he is said by Brendan to have personality traits that resemble those of the character Rainboom Flash, in My Little Horsies (a character in a parody of the show My Little Pony.)
- He has made jokes with Aphmau about his undying love for her, in one even joking about proposing to her.
- At one point, he was cursed to be a Meif'wa, and Aphmau was trying to find a way to break the curse. All three characters Katelyn, Laurence, and Aphmau were cursed.
- He is a Shadow Knight. (if it wasn't obvious already)
- His name is commonly spelled wrong by fans. The three ways it has been spelled were, "Laurence", "Lawrence", and the newer version that is how it's supposed to be spelled, Laurence.
- In some of the episodes where someone is playing Laurence you can see that it is spelled Laurance or Lauranace, which is incorrect.
- According to MyStreet, Laurence enjoys reading Larmau fanfictions.
- There has a been a theory saying that Laurence's face is a recolored texture of Prince Marsh's head design.
- His favorite color is green, specifically the type of green mostly seen in his clothing.
- Laurence falling down into a hole has become a reoccurring joke in the series and fandom.
- He also appears to have a problem with killing plants, as seen in Season 2, Episode 97. This joke is small, but has a chance of growing if Laurence keeps murdering Mother Nature.
- Laurence's design prior to the wedding between Logan and Donna is that of Luke fon Fabre, the main protagonist of the game Tales of the Abyss.
- Laurence is often referred to as "Little Laurence" by Zane in both Minecraft Diaries and MyStreet. However, the reason this nickname was given to him is currently unknown. In retort, Laurence calls Zane, Cyclops.
- After all this time, Laurence still probably hasn't gotten that $5.00 he owes his best friend Castor, the Chicken Shaman.
- It is possible Laurence has Trypophobia, which is the fear of holes. Trypophobia is a common fear so it is possible he suffers from this phobia.
- His sass is unbeatable not even Dante can stand a chance against him.
