Laki is a slim young woman of average height with straight, pale lavender hair set in a bowl cut-like style, with her fringe covering the left part of her forehead, and the right side exposed. She has also been seen sporting longer hair in other instances, with two bangs framing her face and her forehead being covered by her fringe. She has brown eyes, and a large, dark-colored ribbon adorning the top of her head. She is always shown wearing a pair of simple glasses with oval lenses. After the 7-year time skip, the only noticeable change in her appearance is the hair, whose style is reminiscent of her previous long cut, but wavier, with the bangs framing her face and going down to her shoulders being undulated, and with a triangular tuft covering her forehead. Her ribbon now marks the spot where Laki’s hair is tied in a long ponytail, reaching down to the middle of her back.
Laki’s first outfit was composed of a light-colored coat reaching down below her waist, with dark cuffs retaining the original color on their back edges, a dark cravat tie around the collar, tight-fitting dark pants tucked inside light-colored boots with dark soles, and light colored gloves. She also had a small, dark satchel adorned by a pair of small hearts hanging on her right hip, seemingly attached to her waist. As of year X791, Laki sports a light-colored mantle, held closed on the front by a ring, over a strapless, dark dress, with a revealing neckline and a series of light-colored squares adorning its lower part, which has a light belt circling it around Laki’s waist, with three bullet-like objects attached to it on the left side, and dark boots.
Laki likes glasses and wears them as well, and she has a strong dislike towards perverts. Laki also expresses herself in strange ways, for example, she refers to getting a haircut as "chopping hair", eating as "feeding your stomach", and sleeping as "whittling away the defenseless hours." She seems to have a slightly sadistic side, as she keeps a large amount of torture devices in her room in Fairy Hills.

Seven years after the destruction of Tenrou Island, the guild is reduced into a small tavern with only a few members remaining, one of whom is Laki. While in the guild, Laki approaches Jet and Droy and begins to pick on Droy for gaining weight. Jet joins in and compares Droy to Reedus, whose body is now slim. Droy ignores his comments and tells him that he has been working out every day but Jet continues to pick on him and asks him what Levy would say if she saw him. Hearing this, Droy shouts out that Levy is not coming back, silencing everyone inside the guild, including himself. Suddenly, a group of men from the rival guild, Twilight Ogre, enter the guild demanding payment for the money the guild borrowed, but the new master, Macao Conbolt, tells them that they were unable to collect enough money for the payment. The group leaves after trashing the guild and promises to return next month for the money.
After the group leaves, everyone in the guild notices Reedus' sketch book, littered on the floor. The sketch book contains Reedus' sketch of the guild members back when the guild was strong and complete. Seeing this, everyone in the guild begins to grieve and reminisce about what has happened since the disappearance of their comrades. Suddenly, the guild hears a sound and everyone heads outside only to see Blue Pegasus's Christina. The Trimens then get off the Magic Bomber and inform the guild that they have detected something in the Eternano waters, because Tenrou Island still exists.Laki decides to stay behind while some of the guild members go to find the missing members. While waiting, the guild is visited by Thibault and his gang who are demanding payment for Fairy Tail's debt. Romeo gets irritated with the group and starts a fight. However, the fight is interrupted by the arrival of the missing members who quickly defeat the members of Twilight Ogre. Seeing the missing members, Laki and the others begin to cry tears of joy.

Laki stands in the guild with Warren and the others as the rest of the guild talks about Lucy, unaware that Lucy is there, who is unable to be seen because she has been turned invisible. When Natsu finds the troubled and invisible Lucy, Laki helps the rest of the guild try to make Lucy visible again, and then turns invisible herself after Happy spills the Magic ointment over everyone.
After being asked by Wakaba to retrieve a report on Michelle Lobster, Laki appears with the report, opens it and starts reading out loud that the Lobster family was a wealthy plantation family concentrated on the Zentopia Church Parrish. Macao sighs with relief that he was worried about nothing but Wakaba notes the "was". She continues and says that they had an accident, of which Michelle was a survivor.
Laki and the others are heading back at the guild when they see Coco, Sugarboy and Mary Hughes. She tells them that it's their guild, and when the three strangers attack, she and Max are surrounded by Sugarboy's slime. She and Max are then hit by Natsu's fire when the Dragon Slayer is manipulated by Mary Hughes, and Max helps her get up after their power has been exhausted. Along with the others, Laki uses her Magic so Lucy can escape. She uses Wood-Make: Violent Approach, but it is absorbed by Sugarboy's slime. Later she and Max are also engulfed in the green mucus. Along with the other members, she watches as Hughes and Sugarboy escape.
Laki is sent on a mission with Gildarts and they both arrive at the abandoned and decrepit Lobster Plantation, Michelle's hometown. Laki comments on how this place has changed in comparison to how it used to be. Later, when Gildarts compliments Laki for her looks, she threatens him that she will let Cana know once they return.
The two later arrive at an abbey where they are denied access, which subsequently leads to Gildarts asking Laki to carry out a plan that he has in mind. Later, the two hide themselves in a wooden beam and sneak into the abbey where Gildarts accidentally gives away their location. The nuns and priests crowd around the two and Gildarts uses his Disassembly Magic to attack the crowd, seemingly killing them. Laki is surprised that Gildarts attacked them but he tells her to look carefully. She realizes that the nuns and priests that Gildarts attacked were actually wooden dolls. She inspects their remains and notes that they weren't created with Molding Magic.
After Laki and Gildarts defeat all the nuns and priests, they proceed to the back of the abbey where they find a young girl lying on a bed attached to a Lacrima. Laki explains that the Lacrima is there to keep her in a coma. Gildarts asks Laki who the girl is, and when she says its Michelle Lobster, Gildarts wonders who the girl with Lucy is.
Later, Laki reports to Warren and the rest of the guild that she and Gildarts have found the real Michelle Lobster, while the girl with Lucy, Natsu and Elfman is fake.
Later, Laki and Gildarts sneak into the Archbishop's room using Laki's Wood Merging Spell. They both expected it to be heavily guarded, but surprisingly the Archbishop is alone in his room, sitting on top of the bed. They reveal themselves to him and begin to ask questions, though the Archbishop simply repeats his speech to the pilgrims in a blank manner. Laki realizes that someone must be controlling him. They then hear a clap and discover Lapointe in the room. Laki watches as he credits them for being able to make it to the room, but adds they won't return alive. Laki watches as Natsu arrives and says that if Lapointe is the one controlling the Archbishop, then he is also the one who used "Michelle" to trick them. Lapointe converses with Natsu and Gildarts briefly on the subject and then uses his Darkness Magic to take Laki hostage, and tells Natsu and Gildarts to fight each other; otherwise, she dies. Suddenly, Laki is rescued by Byro Cracy when he nullifies Lapointe's magic from behind. Using this moment as a distraction, Gildarts uses his magic and defeats Lapointe.
After being defeated by Gildarts, Lapointe tells Laki and the others about his plans for Lucy and the Infinity Castle. Laki and her guildmates then find out that Lapointe was just a doll just like the ones Laki and Gildarts saw in their last journey. The Fairy Tail Mages then divide into two groups, and Laki joins the group that consists of Warren, Happy, Pantherlily, Carla and Wendy, with the task of healing the Archbishop from Brain II's influence. Wendy finishes healing the Archbishop, and then Happy gets an idea on how to save Lucy. Laki's group relays the message to all her teammates, via Warren's telepathy. Then, Laki along with Warren and Wendy receive news from the guild via Warren's telepathy. They are told about the secrets of Real Nightmare validating Happy's theory.
Laki, along with Warren, Wendy and Carla learns that Lucy will soon be consumed by the Infinity Clock, and watches as Warren contacts all of the Fairy Tail Mages, asking them to hurry and defeat the Dark Guild. She is present as Byro appears at the group's location and asks about the Legion Mages' whereabouts, only to be told by her that he now has no reason to want Lucy dead, as the defeat of Reborn Oración Seis will have the same effect on the Infinity Clock. Afterwards the Archbishop regains consciousness and announces that while he was being controlled, he was able to hear the thoughts of the Dark Guild's members and thus knows how to halt the procedure of Lucy's absorption by the Clock, and Laki listens as he reveals both to Fairy Tail and to Legion that everyone should cooperate for now in order to halt the Infinity Clock and destroy the chains linking it to the Earth.
Later, Laki stays with the Archbishop while the others destroy the chains. After Brain II is defeated and Lucy is absorbed completely by the Infinity Clock, Laki and the others receive a message from Warren via Telepathy explaining to Lucy how she can free herself from the Infinity Clock, while also getting rid of Real Nightmare.
Some time after the Infinity Clock crisis is dealt with, the Legionnaires arrive at Fairy Tail to apologize for their actions, as well as say goodbye to the Mages, since they have to embark on a new quest to find the clock parts that were scattered around the world. Laki is present during those events, and bids farewell to the Legionnaires along with her guild mates.
Grand Magic Games arcSunting
With the return of the Tenrou Team after seven years, Laki stands with her guild mates in the guild hall as Makarov gets up to speak, stating that he is announcing the new guild master. Laki and the rest of the guild are shocked when, after Gildarts is announced to have the position, the man is revealed to have left and made Makarov guild master once more. However, hearing Gildarts' words that they should strive to make Fairy Tail number one again, Laki and the others smile.
When the day of the Grand Magic Games comes, Laki, along with the rest of the guild members, cheers for Team Fairy Tail A in the stands. They are all surprisingly greeted by Mavis Vermilion who also came to watch the games and cheer for her guild. When Fairy Tail's second team, Team Fairy Tail B, enters the arena, Fairy Tail cheers again.
During Lucy's fight against Flare Corona, she, alongside her guild mates cheer for Lucy and don't notice Flare taking Asuka hostage to make Lucy useless and punish her. Alongside the others, she is very surprised when Natsu figures out Flare's plan. When Gemini, summoned by Lucy, transforms into Lucy wearing only a towel, Laki notices Vijeeter doing the "Dance of Excitement".
After the first day of the Grand Magic Games, Laki joins the party held in Fairy Tail's lodgings. When the second day of the Games begins, Laki stands with the guild, stunned as Natsu, Gajeel and Sting lag behind in the day's event due to their motion sickness. However, Natsu and Gajeel refuse to give up, and as they head towards the finish line, they openly state that they are doing their best for all of their guild mates who were left alone for the seven empty years. Hearing their kind words, Laki begins to cry. When the battles of the second day begin soon after, Laki watches as Toby Horhorta and Kurohebi fight, commenting on the latter's ability to use Mimic.
After watching Erza dominate in the Pandemonium event of the third day, Laki screams and cheers with the rest of Fairy Tail. Her happiness only increases when a little while later Cana obtains first place in the MPF event through her use of Fairy Glitter. At the end of the day, Laki and the other Fairy Tail members are seen partying at a local bar, celebrating their success. She, along with Macao, Wakaba and Romeo, laughs as Erza collides into a pile of barrels.
On the evening of the third day, Laki and the others head to Ryuzetsu Island, a famous summer resort. There, she is shown pushing Kinana away as the Trimens stare at her. She faints as Natsu destroys the resort in an attempt to thaw the frozen pool.
Later, Laki watches as the new Fairy Tail Team enters the battle-field. She, along with many of the viewers, stares in awe when Team Blue Pegasus' rabbit man is revealed to be Nichiya, an Exceed from Edolas. Laki is left speechless after Natsu's attack takes out both Sting and Rogue, and deals great damage to the arena. At the end of the match, Laki joyfully witnesses Natsu defeat Sting and Rogue alone, leaving Fairy Tail in the ranking's first place at the end of the fourth day.
With the final day of the Grand Magic Games arriving, Laki once again attends the event to watch from the audience and cheer on Team Fairy Tail. Mavis takes charge of having Fairy Tail win the final event, and although it is easy for Laki's guild to get points at first by defeating some of the easier opponents, Laki asks the first master if she has thought of a way to defeat Jura Neekis, with Mavis admitting that she doesn't know how to deal with him. After Gray manages to defeat Rufus, Laki, along with the other guild members, cheers on the Ice Mage for his victory. When Erza's fight against Minerva and Kagura is announced, Laki looks worried, as her guild mates comment on who is going to win. Laki's initial uneasiness over the battle turns out to be completely justified, as Erza is swiftly overpowered by the Mermaid Heel Mage and battered around. As the two discuss Jellal and an enraged Kagura goes to draw her sword, Laki hides her eyes and turns her head from the Lacrima screens, being unable to watch any longer.
However, Erza manages to stand once more and take Kagura down, swiftly defeating Minerva of Sabertooth shortly after. Concurrently, Gray, Juvia, Laxus and Gajeel all take out the other opponents left in the event, leaving only Sting remaining. Seeing that he is the only one left, Sting calls all of Team Fairy Tail to his location via a flare, and Laki watches tensely as he states that he will take them all out. Despite his words, Sting actually ends up doubting himself, and openly declares his surrender. Hearing Chapati announce that Fairy Tail are the official winners of the Grand Magic Games, Laki cheers with her friends.
A little while later, Laki is called forward alongside hundreds of other Mages to the middle of Crocus, where the King himself steps forward to address them. Hurriedly informing the large group of an incoming 10,000 Dragons that are said to attack the Kingdom the following day, the King explains the Eclipse 2 Plan, but also asks for the Mages assistance in protecting the people from harm. Laki, alongside her guild and all of the others present, agrees to help out. Laki begins to fight shortly after when seven Dragons appear in Crocus. As Laxus confronts one of the Dragons called Atlas Flame, Laki and the rest of the guild attack a group of smaller lizard-like creatures that hatched from one of the other Dragons earlier. With the Eclipse Gate demolished, the Dragons and Hatchlings proceed to vanish from the current timeline, leading Laki and the rest of her Guild to celebrate in their victory against the Dragons.
After their triumphant victory, Laki attends a banquet hosted at Mercurius Castle by the royal family, where she partakes in a conversation with Kinana. After the banquet, Laki and the rest of her Guild return to Magnolia, where they are greeted by the overjoyed citizens congratulating them for their victory. As Natsu hoists up the trophy above his head and re-acknowledges their victory, Laki happily cheers alongside Kinana.
