This character analysis section may not be accurate to every player's experience.

Laura is the first and only staff user in part 1. As the only reliable healer of the Dawn Brigade, she is very useful for supporting combat units in part 1, to ensure they do not use their player phases to heal themselves. Her base magic is decent enough to perform her healing duties. She has terrible base physical durability and base speed, so she often dies in one hit and cannot dodge very well. Thus it is vital to keep her away from combat as much as possible.

Laura has amazing offensive growths, with 70% in magic, skill, and speed. However, her only mains of gaining experience are healing and BEXP, so her rate of experience gain is among the lowest in the party, and in addition to her low bases, it is extremely difficult to raise her stats and level overall. Furthermore, if a player invests in training Laura, by the time she likely promotes to tier 2 in part 3, Micaiah can also use staves. Micaiah has better magic than Laura and can wield Physic immediately upon promotion, making Micaiah a better staff user than Laura with less investment. However, it can be valuable to have a second healer around through midgame and on. Despite Laura's excellent speed growth, her speed cap severely limits her so she is very unlikely to double units through midgame, and she cannot use Thani either. This, combined with the very weak light magic, severely limits Laura's capabilities as a long-term combat unit. By the time the endgame rolls around, she will almost certainly be inferior to Rhys and Oliver as a backup light mage.

Laura starts with no skills. The only skill she would benefit from through part 1 is Shade (albeit unreliable), as she cannot offensively contribute, and needs to be kept safe. Miracle can help too, though it will not be available to Laura until part 4.

Laura has a wind affinity which gives accuracy and avoid, and her most useful boost is avoid to help her dodge. Micaiah herself is a similar backline magic support unit who has a dark affinity, giving attack and more avoid. Otherwise Laura is a unit that benefits the least from supports overall, as supporting her with a combat unit requires keeping that combat unit near her as opposed to more exposed to combat.
