Hello! I'm Laurent Diaphane. I'll tell you about my parents. My father Souci was raised by a fairy, and he came off as rude to many people. My father first wanted to marry the princess Diaphana, but she blew away soon after they met. He then met and fell in love with Princess Minon-Minette, but was eventually separated from her by fate. The two endured many hardships, but eventually reunited in the air.
I have inherited the ability to float away like my mother and father, though I think I take after my mother more. I'm going to Ever After High, and over here I can show my ability to fly. I often float in the air to travel. However, I can control myself to prevent from blowing away. Still, it doesn't always work, and I get blown away sometimes. When it doesn't work, I try finding ways to suppress it. But flying isn't always easy. Sometmes I crash to the ground. My flying is said to have been an influence from my father's time with the princess Diaphana, which is where my family gets their surname.
Being able to fly, I can communicate well with birds. My mother is a lover of birds. In our kingdom, birds are in the service of royalty - we have huge teratorn birds that help us patrol the skies. They'll even let me ride on their backs. I'm close with a lot of smaller birds too, Zoltan Turul keeps me updated on bird news.
My destiny is much more than flying - it also means I'll have to do hard labor under the fairy Grimace for refusing a suitor, plus trying to protect my kingdom. I've still got a long way to go, but I won't mind doing hard work.
I am also very good at basketball since I can jump very high. At first other kids told me I was too short to play, but I refuse to let my lack of height get in the way. I don't think I have a chance at going professional since I'm too short.
One huge problem I have is my speech impediment. I am a stutterer, and it's hard for me to talk out loud. I try to avoid talking because I often feel embarrassed. I prefer typing or writing things out. I try to control my stutter while I'm in public, but when I'm in my room I let it all out. It's hard to control it, but I try the best I can. I take speech classes to help me. Mr. Dodo is a great teacher, even if he uses a lot of big words that confuse me. I prefer writing things out to talking, so this biography was a piece of cake!
