- Comments and insights on the name Laureline: | Edit
Laureline (German: Veronique; Danish, Norwegian & Swedish: Linda) is a peasant girl from 11th century France. In the debut adventure, Bad Dreams,3 she rescues Valérian from the enchanted Forest of Arelaune. When she accidentally discovers Valérian is a time-traveller, he is forced to bring her back with him to Galaxity where she is trained as a Spatio-Temporal Agent and assigned as his partner.
In the early stories Laureline generally sits in the background while Valérian saves the day in whatever situation the pair have found themselves in, but her position changes as the series develops. World Without Stars, in which the two characters are separated for most of the adventure, allows Laureline to step out from under Valérian's shadow for the first time and she proves to be more than an equal to Valérian in ensuring that their mission succeeds.10
