Laura Character in Tierras Mágicas | World Anvil


Queen Laura

The Kingdom of Canterbury was probably the most recognizable and organized faction in all of Tierras Mágicas. Inhabiting the massive Canterbury Castle and counting on assets such as a spaceship, a dragon's hoard of treasure and, some would add, their very own Pink Rubber Ducky, they controlled the plains keeping the geyser snakes at bay and harvesting the resources the salt lake had to offer.   From start to end, this kingdom was fairly commanded by Queen Laura, a smart girl that kept the state's affairs in order for a long time, up until she ultimately had to take some hard decisions to get back the one she lost.  

Physical aspect

Queen Laura was a 12 years old click girl with short dark hair who dressed in yellow and white.
Early on in her life, her family discovered that her legs were weak and tended to fail her at weird times. Her mysterious disease progressed with time, until she was affected with complete brokenness on both legs.
Treatments with modelling clay embedding were attempted, but ultimately failed to keep her consistently walking on her own.
She used a green and white wheelchair for mobility and was otherwise in good health.

Life and likes

The queen of Canterbury was often seen surrounded by her pets: Doves and a couple of small dragons that enjoyed sleeping atop the kingdom's treasure.   She was friendly and spent most of her free time with her parents and her grandma, sometimes enjoying the performances that her knights and horses would put up for her.   Most of all, Laura enjoyed spending time with her favourite knight, Sebastián, who she saw as a mentor, big brother and protector.

Where is Sebastián?

Losing Knight Sebastián to The Tempest was the hardest hit in the life of the young queen.   The monarch that once was joyful and trusting turned desperate and commanding. She exhausted all of the possibilities in the search for her knight.  
Transferred Sebastián by Naelin
At the brink of despair, she powered through her disability to make the massive hike through her castle's cavernous floors until she reached the Faeries to get a wish granted.
When she came down, resolute, she requested a vessel for her miracle, and a loyal subject obliged. The failed attempt to call back Sebastián's soul was the last horror in the search for the lost knight. As the echo of Sebastián slowly faded away on the empty husk of a sacrificed body, Laura abandoned her efforts and hope. The kingdom of Canterbury was never quite the same again.

I love the little additions of the actual toys pictures in Tierras Magicas articles. I love all the ways you found to resolve the problem of "Oh no! One of my favourite toys is broken". Your character was already showing back then :)

Adding pictures of the actual toys is my favourite part of writing these articles. It feels like showing that this all happened. Here they are, these are the ones that had all of the adventures.

Hi there! You may not know me, but I am the sponsor of the Great Leader of Their People Summer Camp Prompt this year! Since you wrote this article, I would like to know, would you mind me reading it aloud on my Twitch channel this week? I have a lot to get through so it helps to do it live while people watch. I've scheduled to go live at 8am and 8pm Eastern Time every weekday. If you join and comment, I can go over your article right then and there! If you'd like to coordinate a specific date, let me know. If you aren't able to make it (or don't want to be present live), you can also always watch streams after the fact on my YouTube channel   BUT, if the answer is NO because you'd rather I not, it's okay! Not agreeing to be streamed definitely does not put you at any disadvantage for winning in my eyes. Please respond swiftly by replying here (make sure to click REPLY under my comment or I won't be notified), message me on my World Anvil profile page, Discord, or anywhere else you find me online.   Thanks again! Whatever you choose, God bless and much success! <3

Hi there. I pray all is well. I went over your article last night in my final stream. Here's the link for the replay if you'd like to take a look. PLEASE BE ADVISED THE STREAM IS ALMOST SEVEN HOURS XD but I tried to link the articles in the comments in the order they appeared for your skippy-through convenience. :D If not, no worries at all. Thanks again for allowing me the honor! Have a blessed one. <3

Thank you so much for reading my article, I thoroughly enjoyed your comments and your surprise when you realised it is a toy's world.   I was going to take on your advice about adding a statblock to fill the gap at the bottom right, but there is no gap for me! I will have to figure out which CSS shenanigans are changing the ratios for different screen sizes :)

Aug 29, 2022 11:18 by LexiCon (WordiGirl)

hmmm I don't see a gap either now. It must be my other screen. Oh boy. X/ Welp. sorry about that! Nevertheless, God bless and much success with this interesting world! <3

It makes me sad that Laura is a sad character as well. She didn't deserve that.
