Lauran was banished from Tora along with the rest of her people after the Torans broke their vow to King Endon. The Torans wandered into the Valley of the Lost. Lauran and the rest of the Torans were cursed by the Guardian, becoming his "subjects". They remained in the Valley for over a decade, unable to escape.
When Doom suggested sending decoys to distract the Shadow Lord, the Torans selected Lauran to act as Jasmine's body double. After bidding her family farewell, Lauran departed for the River Tor along with Peel and Kris.
Lauran was a young woman roughly the same age and size as Jasmine. She had long, dark, silky hair, though she had it curled and tangled to more closely match Jasmine's hair. Though she normally wore Toran robes, Lauran donned rougher clothing and had a blackbird perched on her arm to complete her disguise. Lauran was several years older than she appeared to be, as the Torans did not physically age while they were in the Valley of the Lost.
Lauran had access to Toran magic, giving her a variety of powers. Her mind was psychically joined to the minds of the rest of her people, making it impossible for her to keep secrets from the Torans, but also vastly increasing her memory.
