Name: Lawrence (Lawr) Hill
Series: Boy's Next Door (AKA Afterimage of a Boy)
Canon point: Series end, after Lawr's death.
History: Here.

Lawr is the veritable definition of the empty shell trope. Due to the extreme abuse he's suffered at the hands of his brother, he's been driven to a state of numbness. Throughout the series, he's exposed to several traumatic events -- bearing witness to a murder; being beaten, drugged, and presumably raped; convincing his boyfriend to kill him -- and through it all, he barely shows a hint of emotion. There's pain in his eyes, and it's clear that he's simply done what he has to in order to survive in Dallas' prostitution ring. He's not so much a boy as he is a machine. This improves marginally after he manages to break away from Dallas, and living with Adrian does eventually begin to heal him. But by the end of the series, after being kidnapped and broken again, he's devoid of emotion to the point of embracing death as a blessing. Because, by his own reckoning, he's never going to escape Dallas' grasp, and anything is better than the abuse he suffers there.

Consequently, he views sex more as a tool than an enjoyable or emotional experience. He is particularly good at emotionally manipulating those around him, and he uses sex and sexuality as a means to a desired end. It may seem cold-hearted, though he's rarely cruel about it. When Adrian first finds him in Dallas' club, Lawr has handcuffed one of his co-workers to a bed and is sitting astride him; he leaves him there screaming, heedless of the protests that Dallas will kill the man if he finds out he was messing around with Lawr. This manipulation continues when he essentially blackmails Adrian with the dogtag (an ID tag Adrian had dropped at the scene of the murder Lawr caught him committing). Lawr then seduces him, makes Adrian fall in love with him, simply to get away from his brother. It says a lot that seducing a serial killer is preferable to staying in Dallas' servitude. Perhaps he considers Adrian to be the only person dangerous -- and capable -- enough to either protect him from Dallas, or end him if he fails. The latter turns out to be the case. It's debatable that he actually loves Adrian, but Lawr convinces him that he doesn't, simply to force Adrian's hand in murdering him. The only person he seemingly cannot manage to manipulate is his brother, and he's very aware of this. He doesn't even try to fight his brother or his cronies when he's kidnapped. He simply resigns himself. However, that doesn't stop him from running away on a number of occasions; he's attempted escape so much, Dallas actually begins to send chaperons out with him while he's turning tricks.

Despite all this, he's disturbingly calm, and when he's happy, he is quite sweet. During his time with Adrian, he begins to improve, and seems content enough that he actually begins to genuinely smile. He takes things mostly in stride, and is almost cripplingly kind to people he likes. He bonds very strongly with one of Adrian's students, Vicky, and plays games with her, as well as caring for Adrian's pet iguana, Wolfy. Though we don't get to see much of Lawr's lighter side in the series, it's clear that he's capable of being a happy and compassionate person, though he still carries that undertone of melancholy in almost everything he does. I expect, in Ariel, as long as he doesn't encounter extreme physical abuse, he may be able to heal.

Age: 14.
Gender: Male.
Appearance: Lawr has green eyes, and soft, dark brown hair that reaches his shoulders. He is a pretty boy, though not particularly masculine. As an incident of his profession, he's usually dressed in very tight clothing, black leather and fishnet and boots, seemingly to appeal to the fetishes of his clients. His tongue is pierced, and Dallas has tattooed a black iguana on the left side of his chest, directly over his heart, to symbolize that he is Dallas' property.

Abilities/Powers: Aside from being an emotionally-manipulative little shit, none.

Personal Items: His clothing, which are bloodstained after his death.
