Cultural history student
Dated Oliver (formerly)
Laura Patricia Mitchell is the firstborn daughter of Paige Matthews and Henry Mitchell, born in 2010. She is the older twin of Grace and the older sister of Henry Mitchell Jr. Like her siblings, Laura is a Whitelighter-Witch, having inherited both magical genes from her mother. She is named after one of her Warren ancestors and her maternal (biological) grandmother, Patricia Halliwell.
Early LifeEditAs noted by Wyatt, the eight-year-old twins had long dark blonde hair and green eyes. Laura had her hair in a ponytail while Grace had it loose, which was the only way to keep them apart sometimes, as they were nearly-identical. According to Paige, Laura was always the logical-minded one.
As the twins grew up, they were inseparable despite being different as night and day. Laura is known as the smart and serious one of the pair, being good at school and not obsessing over guys as much. Like her sister, she also likes fashion, but had a more casual dress style.
At the age of nineteen and fresh out of high school, the twins applied to a college in Paris together without telling their parents. Laura wanted to study cultural history while Grace wanted to study art. When they finally told their parents, they were furious and this anger was later enhanced by the Spirit of Rage, Darius. while initially sticking together, the sisters later turned on each other as well and even used their elemental powers at each other. However, when the cause was revealed, they reconciled.
The twins then explained to their parents that they were old and mature enough to make this decision on their own. Their parents later agreed and allowed the twins to move to Paris while moving to LA themselves because of Henry's new job.
After several months in Paris, Laura had started dating a charming guy named Oliver. However, she soon learned that either he or Grace's date Luke was a warlock. Laura refused to believe it at first, though she eventually accepted the possibility. The twins met with Melinda, who was on vacation there, and asked for help in identifying the warlock.
The cousins wanted to lure both guys to a rave, where Melinda could freeze them so they could be tested for blood, as warlocks don't bleed. However, Laura began to suspect something was going on with Grace. After some persuasion, Grace admitted she had found out Luke was a warlock earlier that day, and that Oliver was one as well. The cousins still decided to go through with the plan, though it quickly fell apart as they got separated from Grace and Oliver proved to be immune to Melinda's power.
Laura confronted Oliver and, along with Melinda and Ryan, was able to freeze and them vanquish him. The cousins then confronted the leader of the warlocks, Bastion, and vanquished him as well. Laura then believed the threat was over, unaware of the fact that Grace had faked Luke's death because of her feelings for him.
