Laurent (Japanese: ロラン Laurent) is a playable character appearing in Fire Emblem Awakening. The son of Miriel from the future, he traveled back to the past in hopes of aiding his mother and Chrom in their war against Grima.

Fire Emblem Awakening


Laurent is one of Awakening's several child units. He is one of several characters of the mage class and is the son of fellow mage Miriel.

Upon Miriel's marrying, Laurent appears in Paralogue 14. He is searching, in a desert located in the southeastern reaches of Archanea, for a hidden village said to be in possession of a powerful Goddess Staff. If either Chrom or Miriel encounter him in the southwest village he elects to join the Shepherds in a bid to locate the relic.

After the battle with the desert bandits, regardless of the hidden village being found or not, Laurent meets with his mother to inform her that he is her child from the future. Despite possessing a marriage ring-identical to Miriel's-she still seems somewhat unconvinced. She eventually agrees to acting under the assumption that they are mother and child, but tells Laurent that they will work together to prove or disprove this in the future.

In a later conversation with his father, Laurent reveals that he when he and the other children fled to the past, he ended up arriving three years before Lucina arrived, marking a passage of five years in the past before he joined the Shepherds.[1]

Personality and character

Much like his mother, Laurent is seen as an intelligent and dedicated individual. He is often viewed as an overly uptight and serious person. When Lucina and the other children went back in time Laurent ended up sent three years earlier[1] than the other children; this resulted in his isolation in an era where he knew no one. Having spent a total of five years in isolation, he felt the need to force the mien of an adult onto himself after being mentally crushed by loneliness.[2] This leads to him acting distant from his father though he is eventually able to overcome this and open up emotionally to his father.

Unlike many of the other children characters in Awakening, it appears that Miriel was never fully convinced that he was her child, though she is still willing to conduct studies and experiments with him.[3] Regardless, Miriel agrees to allowing the two of them to live on the assumption that they are parent and child[4] and he refers to her as "mother" in conversation.

Other appearances


  1. 1.0 1.1 "It's fairly straightforward. Travel among eras is imprecise. There are...variables. Lucina arrived at the onset of the war with Plegia some two years ago. I, on the other hand, have been here for nearly five years." — Laurent to his father, Fire Emblem Awakening
  2. "...... You're right. All that time, it was... I was so lonely. Year after year, all alone... Wandering an era where I knew no one. Hoping to meet up with the others but knowing how minuscule my chances were... I had no one to help me. No one to lend an ear to my despair. It was...awful. Many nights, I thought I'd die alone. That the pain would kill me, or..." — Laurent to his father, Fire Emblem Awakening
  3. "Laurent: You seem happy, is all. At present, I have yet to muster conclusive evidence that I am your son... But working like this—being able to assist you—makes me happy as well.
    Miriel: True, no unassailable case has been made as to our relation. You may not be my son. But you've more than proven you are my colleague in the pursuit of truth.
    " — Miriel and Laurent, Fire Emblem Awakening
  4. "However, I have no material evidence to suggest you are not, as you claim, my son. I shall conduct an inquiry of my own. We'll investigate the matter until a clear conclusion emerges. ...Together. Until then, I will grant the fundamental assumption that you are, in fact, my child." — Miriel to Laurent, Fire Emblem Awakening
  5. "We're at war, Father. Acting like a child is hardly behavior to be encouraged. Besides, I'm a grown man. Older than Lucina at this point, I suspect." — Laurent to his father in a support conversation, Fire Emblem Awakening
