|The name or term "Laura" refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Laura (disambiguation).|
|Japanese name||ラウラ Raura|
|Date of birth|
|Date of death|
|Appearance(s)|| 1792: Rondo of Blood|
1944: Portrait of Ruin
Laura is a servant of the vampire Carmilla.
Her original appearance was during the Camilla boss fight in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. When the fight starts, Laura wears a long, red, silk dress; she paces back and forth during the fight, grabbing Richter or Maria if they come too close to her, keeping them in place while draining their hearts. When Carmilla has been defeated, attacking Laura will make her throw off her dress and attack the player with flying kicks. While in this form, she appears to wear a leotard with boots that go up to her knees. She also has cat-like ears (removed in Dracula X Chronicles).
In Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles, besides repeating her Rondo's role, Laura also takes the form of Annette in the Clock Tower, in order to fool players into thinking she is the actual Annette, since she resides in the same room where Annette was in the original Rondo of Blood.
When first encountered in Portrait of Ruin, Laura is seen sitting in a chair. As the player approaches, she stands up and shouts "Here I am!", after which she runs at the player. If she touches the player's characters while wearing the red dress, she will grab them and drain their HP. If attacked, she sheds her dress, revealing her true form. After the dress is gone she attacks with martial arts moves. She jumps and flips around a lot, so the best weapon choice would be one that has a large arc (like greatswords or axes).

- Laura is a reference to Laura, one of the two main protagonists of the novella Carmilla, of which she is the narrator. She is the vampire countess's love interest and nearly her victim. Carmilla wishes to transform Laura into a vampire so they may be together eternally. Laura does not share Carmilla's feelings, and is somewhat embarrassed and intimidated by Carmilla's attention. This is also where the cat-like appearance gets its inspiration: in the novel, it is implied that Carmilla would transform into a giant cat when she feeds on Laura.
- Laura bears a slight resemblance to another Konami character, Konami Lady, from the game Konami Wai Wai World, both in overall outfit style and fighting methods.
