Laurel Lai is the wife of Gil Lai and the mother of Jonah Lai. She and her family live in Barnacle Bay. When first played, she is pregnant with her second child but isn't aware of it. She does realize it sometime after the beginning of the game. She has 6 points in Athletic and 9 in Video Game hidden skills. She is a very active member of the Barnacle Bay Community and acts like a kind person, but she has a well-hidden dark side. She has the Kleptomaniac trait, plus she has the lifetime wish to become the Emperor Of Evil despite being Friendly and not having the Evil trait. Perhaps that's the "dark side" her biography refers to.
