RISING CONFLICT: Title: Finding Courage Aspect: We must act to protect.
Sister Peter Ann Doran was Laura’s teacher when she was in Catholic grade school. In her teens, Laura developed a friendship with Sister Ann, and became aware of the supernatural world from hanging around her safe house. As she saw those who feared the evil and darkness, and sought safety there, she developed a desire to fight the evil and protect the innocent. It wasn’t until her brother strayed into this darkness that she acted upon this growing desire, researching and searching for a way to protect him and convince him to return to the faith. She discovered the Dupin society with their wealth of knowledge and soon became a member, following the camp of John Vastolo. In her zeal for action, she often forgets to think things through.
THE STORY:Title: Trying Faith Aspect: Follow Your Heart
Laura teams up with her then boyfriend, Corvus, to save and help her brother Jeremy from Russel Carson’s cult. She is unsuccessful in saving her brother because he doesn’t want to be rescued, but does rescue a thrall from the mind workings of Eric somethingorother, named Aaron Landcaster, who once freed from the thrall, quickly works his way into Laura’s heart. He easily breaks up Laura and Corvus as he is from her church (though currently less active) and Corvus is nonreligious all together.
