When entering the country of Sky in a new world, Laurence is dressed in a well shined Breastplate, but unadorned with jewels or the like.
The Bastard Sword on his back is well adorned, but only with inexpensive beautiful jewels in the hilt and expert craftsmanship. The same can be said for the Scabbard.
His Heavy Steel Shield has a magnificent picture of a crest of his own creation, an imagining brought to life; his own house: A Griffin The Griffin is rising up and intimidating unseen foes, obviously superior, but does not strike.
Laurence, being the eldest, worked the farm from a very early age. All the hard work coupled with his rigorous training and war experience has made him a force to recon with. He stands at 1m and 92cm’s and is both muscular and agile, opting to sacrifice as little mobility as he can while pursuing maximum power.
The merchant aspect of farming has honed his mental faculties somewhat. He’s well versed in how best to get the goods to the market, who to talk to and what price to settle for.
But being an aspiring knight Laurence believed social skills would be part of his training once he finished as a squire and actually a part of his squire training. He even suspected that by just becoming a knight he might be graced with a good social presence and the skills to match. So he put little effort in that growing up and further emphasized his growing muscles and ability to properly use them.
But being a squire and observing the knights did nothing to improve his social skills. On the contrary, the shock of their rude, childish and often malevolence in fact dulled him somewhat in that capacity.
After which Laurence focused on getting through the war in one piece and acquired whatever skills he could to do so.
Laurence doesn’t really remember a time in his youth where he didn’t want to become a knight. It was all he ever wanted, for as long as he can remember.
But he was a good farmer and that in combination with working with his family did bring him satisfaction and at times joy, but in his heart he always knew he was destined to be a knight.
As he lifted bails of hay he drew them up as he would a sword and lay them down as if he were smiting his foes. He practiced receiving rewards, which he humbly refused stating that it should all go to charity, much to his younger sisters amusement when she caught him in the act.
