She got captured and imprisoned at Gribe prison, but with Sothe’s help, she and Micaiah managed to escape. She then became a member of the Dawn Brigade and traveled with them. Aran, a childhood friend of Laura’s who joined the Begnion Occupational Army, decided to cut ties with them after being persuaded by her. She is recruited in the beginning of Chapter 1-2. She begins as a priest. After Daein is revived, she remains in the army with Aran until Ashera delivers her judgment.
