View full history
Laurel Kennedy starts working in the government of UNOW (the world-wide confederacy of countries) after Orion Assante becomes the Grendel Khan, ruler of the world. She rises quickly and becomes one of his main advisors after Sherri Caniff dies. She is smart and influential, and influences events to benefit herself. She is the first main interior insidious force within Orion's government, and takes over more and more power within the government as Orion's energy is sapped with old age.
When Fadi, Orion's most trusted remaining advisor, lays on her deathbed, she implores Orion to have an heir. Orion finally agrees. Laurel makes sure she is the one to provide this necessary step; they get married soon after.
However, their doctors determine that Laurel cannot have any more children; the birth of her previous daughter, Crystal Kennedy, now a teenager, caused permanent reproductive problems for her. Orion decides to have himself impregnated using the advanced technology of their time. Laurel is unhappy with this but can do nothing.
Orion has the child, Jupiter, and bonds with him. He will be a fine heir. Orion dies five years later. Laurel says Jupiter is still too young to rule, so she will rule in his stead until he gets older. She sends Jupiter and Crystal away.
Laurel rules for ten years, undercutting much of the good that Orion had done for the world in his time.
