Laura Knight


Age: 24
Race: Human
Significant Relations: Apprentice, Knox Phillips

Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 135lbs
Overall Appearance: Laura is, by necessity, a strong and athletic woman. It's no use knowing how to banish a demon if you can't outrun it if it decides not to wait for you to finish chanting. Thus, Laura's build is thin but muscled, and her brunette hair is kept at a tame length around her shoulders. Her eyes are hazel, and generally smiling - Laura is a very smiley woman, but it's hard to tell if she's smiling in that she's amused, happy, or affectionate; or if she's smiling in that you're about to lose your head. If you're a malicious demon, then it's probably the latter.

Personality: Laura is a no-nonsense woman, and has little patience for bullshit. Of course, bullshit is quite loosely defined as 'being a douche', 'sticking your foot in it', or 'getting on her nerves' - otherwise, Laura isn't that fussed. Somewhat relaxed about her occupation, Laura quite frequently tells callers to her agency to 'fuck off, it's a benevolent fairy, you tosser'. By that, one can interpret that Laura has nothing against demons that don't set people on fire or turn them inside out, or other various unpleasant things; from petty theft to childnapping.

Skills and Talents:
  • Adept with firearms and explosives, and with ample supply of both. Very ample.
  • A capable hand-to-hand fighter, both with fists and a combat knife.
  • A skilled archer, one of Laura's primary anti-demon weapons is a runic bow.
  • Deadly with her secondary anti-demon weapon set, a shortsword and bladed and spiked buckler.
  • Speedy runner, and acrobatic.

Abilities:
  • Rune Magic: Whilst not a mage herself, Laura carries with her runes and signets that have varying effects on foes.
    • Ice Rune: Depending on her intention, this rune can be employed to fire blasts of frost at people, or to encase them from the bottom up in ice. That sort of thing.
    • Divine Rune: Primarily employed for banishment purposes, this rune can also spear demonic entities with thin beams of light.
    • Blood Rune: A draining rune that targets foes and draws on their life force to heal Laura and her allies.
    • Ignition Rune: This rune makes things (non-biological things) explode, quite potently.
    • Warp Rune: This rune allows for periodic teleportation; with ten minute gaps between teleports, but unlimited range.

Equipment:
  • Mitsubishi Evo 8. Black.
  • Blessed handguns x 2
  • Blessed shotgun.
  • Blessed SMGs x 2
  • Frag Grenades.
  • Runic Bow: Enchanted, this bow charges its arrows with divine firey power as soon as they leave it; this fire is effective against anyone, but the divine aspect comes into its own against demons or otherwise unholy creatures, can can cause catastrophic damage to them.
  • Runic Shortsword: Enchanted, this sword can launch slashes of white fire similar to that of the bow as projectiles, or as a flamethrower, or just as an enhancement when it strikes a foe. Once again, damage heavily increases against demons and other unholy foes.
  • Bladed Buckler - Small handheld shield with blades set around the edge capable of slashing across foes, as well as a small spike in its centre for punching blows.
  • Body armour -- kevlar, etc.

So begins...

"What the hell do you call this, huh?"

Laura Knight tapped her booted foot on the wooden floor of the bar, glaring at Knox from the doorway. "I leave you alone for half a day, and I come back to find you with some big breasted bimbo demon with her knockers practically balancing on your head?"

The woman slapped her forehead as Liza moved away from Knox, and strode over to him. "What the hell, dude? I thought you were at least slightly smarter than that!"

"Christ, Phillips. Boobs don't make a demon less likely to rip your face off, yeah? I thought we'd covered that already? Several times!" Laura folded her arms and let out a 'guh' of irritation.

"Demon boobs may look like airbags, kid, but they sure as hell aren't making the ride any less likely to get you killed horribly." The hunter rolled her eyes, "If you have to, go find some whore, but make sure she's at least human."

"Don't touch me, you perverted son of a bitch." Laura hissed. When she felt the hand on her shoulder, she brought her own hand up to take an iron grip on the Clown's wrist, before stepping back and bending it around his back viciously, twisting it around. She followed up with a punch to the stomach.

Regardless of whether that worked or not, the hunter scoffed and stuck her middle finger up at the pair of them, before tossing her hair and walking after Knox.

"Because, kid, we aren't heroes." Laura said, smirking as she strolled out into the street. "Not in the traditional sense, anyway. We're heroes like firefighters, like soldiers. We do shit that has to be done, and fuck glamour and glory."

She hooked an arm over Knox's shoulders in a friendly fashion and patted him on the back. "It isn't a crime to be an unpleasant shithead, so we just beat those fuckers up. It's when they start taking children, and killing people that we go in guns blazing."

The hunter grinned, "I don't suppose that it helps that the population of normal cities thinks we're crazy, and in places like this half the population are demons."

"We don't?" Laura raised an eyebrow, "Then hell, why the hell am I carrying this, kid?" the woman pointed to the pistol at her hip. "And look..."

The hunter shook her head, "I don't want people to thank me in the street, or I'd wear tights and a cape and call myself Wonder Woman. Publicity and public attention isn't my thing, you know? And not all entities that are 'demonic' are malicious, mind. The ones we go after are, but some just sort of mooch along in society like any other. At least in this neck of the woods."

Laura grinned, "It's either we bump into the arrogant bastard demons here, or we get arrested for vigilantism in another country."

"Oh, it's a long story that one." Laura grinned, "Same old story as most people. Personal vendetta; a kappa took my sister. Whole family just stared as something they couldn't see dragged her down into the lake. Obviously we tried to help, but we couldn't exactly do much against a creature that most normal people can't even see."

Laura shrugged, "I didn't start seeing the bastards outside of places like this until then. Saw the thing's face behind my sister when she was disappearing in the murk. It was grinning at me."

Patting Knox on the back again, Laura shook her head. "Poor kid. Only nine. I kept seeing the bastards from then, doing shit that people just blamed on bad luck. So I started interfering, and eventually killing them. So now you know. And as for food.. what did you have in mind?"

"I don't have a motorbike. Read my profile properly, yo!" Laura rolled her eyes, "I mean wait, what? Anyway."

Smiling, Laura shrugged. "I guess it's possible. I know they have a Special Operations Department. I guess that would fall under them. Probably not demon specific though. Just generally special. Which is half of the people in this city anyway."

The hunter folded her arms, "But, I'm guessing you mean my car. It's pretty sweet, huh? I'm just waiting for it to get its first lick of demon blood over the bonnet when I run something down."

"Pizza works. Fast food is just fantastic. Best part of being a demon hunter, I run around and kick stuff enough that I can eat whatever crap I want without getting fat." Laura smirked, "And freelance, of course. I don't think the cops would approve of my methods. I'm probably a terrorist."

Shrugging, Laura raised an eyebrow, "Not all boobs. Just suspiciously large and bouncy ones. Belonging to demons, primarily, but never trust a woman with boobs bigger than her head."

"I'll start waking you up with flashbangs if you keep going on like that," Laura rolled her eyes and walked inside, "But that aside."

The hunter stared up at the pizza menu, clicking her tongue. "You know, the more I stare at it, the more the super meat extreme gluttony platter is looking like a new life partner. Theyput gluttony in the [i[name[/i], for christ's sake. They know me, what can I say?"

"Ahem! I think I said before, I run around and kick shit enough to be able to stuff my face, and justly!" Laura punched Knox in the stomach, not gently, but not in a hostile manner. "And no, Knox. It wasn't a joke. I am going to literally, right here, right now, marry a pizza. Of course it was, you twat."

Laura rolled her eyes, "Anyway. Pizza person! One of those what I just said, please! And a kids' pepperoni mini-pizza for toots here."

"You- what? Seriously?" Laura snorted, quickly dissolving into a roaring laugh. She slapped Knox on the back, "Ah, you never cease to make me laugh, kiddo. You don't hunt, you scramble until the demon is so pissed off with your efforts that it turns around and lets you find it, and then you flail around until it either dies or punches you in the gut and you faint."

Shaking her head, Laura smirked. "Don't kid yourself, you know who the boss is here."

"What is it with you and boo- oh, right, adolescent male. Nevermind." Laura rolled her eyes, "And I nail the demon however the hell I feel like nailing it. Sometimes I like, bite their ears off and shoot them with laser beams from my eyes. True story."

The hunter nodded entirely seriously, "Other times I run them down with my more awesome than you car."

"Hey, that was just one little building. How was I supposed to know that was a structurally integral wall? It was like, the same as every other wall. Besides, I got to walk out of a collapsing building with smoke and dust billowing behind me. If we'd been part of a TV show, that would have been in the advert as the badass hero shot."

Laura kicked Knox in the shin, "And besides, I've lost count of how many times I've had to bail you out and save your puny ass from being murdered."

"I haven't got a boyfriend because I intimidate people. And I tend to carry an unreasonable number of weapons. And because I laugh in the face of anyone who asks. Mainly because I don't give a shit."

Laura rolled her eyes, "Romance is overrated, I sleep with people when I want sex, I don't do commitment."

"Dresses are ridiculous, you can't run in them, can't fight in them, and can't climb in them. They're ridiculous." Laura folded her arms, matter-of-factly. "And demon hunters aren't friendly and nice. Or at least if they are, they aren't for long. Either they harden up or they die in a mushy puddle of softness."

"I was with you right up to the paper-plane bit, actually." Laura smirked, "But fine, let's go teach you how not to have your intestines torn out and used to throttle you, or be force fed your own liver."

Laura took a last bite of her pizza and gulped down her drink, before standing. "Up, horizontal, and away!"

"Way to perpetuate stereotypes, nimrod." Laura dropped the newspaper that had hidden her face where she sat at the bar counter. "Kicking the door open and using 'mate' every other word? Come on now! Make an effort."

Laura smirked, "If you keep kicking doors down like that people might get the wrong idea. We aren't SWAT or anything. You're certainly not, anyway."

"... ummm." Laura blinked twice, staring at the girl that had apparently just flown through the door and into the bar counter. "Hi there?"

The demon hunter peered out of the door where Desirae had come from, attempting to identify just what it was that had thrown her in. "Soo... err, do you make a habit of making such dramatic entrances? Or is it just a weekend thing?"

Laura smirked at Knox "Hey, it's what I do. Besides, she's fiine..." the hunter rolled her eyes, "I'm more interested in why and how the hell it happened in the first place. I'm sure she wasn't just running fast. Most people tend not to run through doors. When they're still closed."

"With what, an elephant?" Laura raised an eyebrow, "And why didn't they follow you in? Surely in a dirty fight you don't walk away when your opponent is down, huh?"

The hunter shrugged, "Oh, and he's asking if you're alright. And perving over your body. Mostly the second one."

"You're an awful liar, you know. At least come up with a convincing excuse. But I can't begin to imagine how you ended up flying through the door in a tangle of splinters and limbs if it wasn't part of a fight." Laura shook her head, "But as my pervert friend observed, you're not injured, and as I observed, nobody followed you."

The hunter shrugged, "Feel free to bullshit all you want, I don't rightly give a fuck. And you stop lying too, Knox, you don't spend that long staring at a pair of breasts if you aren't perving. You're nineteen, it's practically expected of you."

"The ones that make life difficult for people." Laura said, waving a hand vaguely, "We have a hotline. We're like the Ghostbusters, but we'll stab anything with too many eyes if it's causing a fuss. Everything from Boggarts to Fel Beasts."

Shrugging, Laura rolled her eyes at Desirae. "Why the hell didn't you just say 'I can't tell you' then? Though I don't see what can be much secret about flying through a door. I'm sure some pedestrians saw you anyway. And can you what, kid? I'm not paying attention."
