Lazlo Strange is one of the main characters in Laini Taylor new YA fantasy book.


Eyes: Gray

Nose: Crooked

After his journey through the desert, his skin grew darkly tanned and he gained much muscle tone. His eyes became squinted from looking at distant horizons, rather than from reading books, as he had been warned by one of the librarians before he left.


Lazlo Strange isn't your typical hero. He isn't your typical "Grrrrrr" fighter portrayed as a hero in a novel, but he is an amazing character, being bookish and slightly shy, someone who just wants his dream to come true. And who doesn't want that?

Lazlo figured out the secret of turning lead to gold through a book of fairytales using logic and imagination though he can’t really pin point how. Aptly referred to as the dreamer, Lazlo has a great imagination and is fascinated by new ideas. That’s one reason why he loved the library. He uses the information from the books about weep to make sense of its existence and dreams of visiting it someday. He is also quite intuitive and closely estimates the problem of week by making metaphorical connections from the book of poems and prophesies. He has a dark sense of humour and often cracks sarcastic jokes Lazlo is also quite charming is also quite understanding when it comes to Sarai and Eril fane. Both have done unforgivable things but he amends his perspective by putting himself in their place. He is optimistic and like Sarai, like to believe that people are inherently good.


Lazlo was orphaned by the great war of Zosma and was raised harshly by monks. His favourite part of living at the monastery was listening to stories from one of the monks, but he lost this privilege after the name of Weep was erased. He then lived a quiet, subservient life until he was tasked at the age of thirteen to deliver scripts to the great library. Upon visiting the library, he was apprenticed to a librarian and decided not to return. He became a junior librarian for the seven years that followed.
