Personality

Laguna is described throughout the story as a man with many faces and even more talents. He has shoulder-length dark brown hair, glowing green eyes, and an innocent face that cause most women to find him very handsome. He is cheerful, generous, kind-hearted, as well as a natural born leader, and though he hates fighting, he becomes a Galbadian soldier and does it for the sake of the greater purpose. He is well respected among his comrades, Kiros and Ward who scorn him sometimes for his impulsive attitude but ultimately rely on him for guidance and direction when push comes to shove. He’s courageous in the face of danger and most especially when his friends are in trouble, but when given time to think about the danger he’s truly in, he usually becomes a little more hesitant. However, he’s always willing to put his life on the line for the sake of justice. Laguna is known for making up his own answers on the fly whenever he doesn’t know the real answer to something, or occasionally he just gets it wrong altogether. For example; he tells Kiros and Ward that “the unfamiliar always happens” when in actuality they have to correct him and say that it’s the “unexpected” that always happens. They playfully laugh at him for his mistakes to which he usually becomes embarrassed and abruptly ends the conversation. He is also well known for his inability to talk to women, though he exclaims that it’s only “beautiful women” that he gets nervous around and when he does his left leg cramps up. He eventually overcomes this however, when one night he has a full conversation with Julia Heartilly, a piano singer he used to have a crush on when he lived in Deling City. Laguna’s dream is to become a traveling journalist so that he can write all about his adventures with his friends and give others the inspiration the world has given him. When the player first meets Laguna, he is constantly wearing his Galbadian soldier uniform, albeit without the helmet. However, Laguna’s normal attire consists of a medium blue jacket with white studs and grooves, white undershirt, brown pants, black boots, and his dog tags from his time in the Sorceress War. As he ages though, he adopts an even more casual appearance, wearing simply a baby blue button-up shirt with khaki slacks and sandals with his hair tied back behind him. However, he still sports his dog tags even in his old age, along with a few wrinkles that shows his age.

History

They say Laguna was born in Deling City, but most of his past is unknown. When 27 years old, Laguna joins the Galbadian Army in the effort to fight the Sorceress War against Esthar. He actually want to do this to aid Galbadia to victory, but even more because of the fact he has a dream of becoming a traveling journalist, acquiring information about the world around him and writing about his experiences in a magazine. In the army, he meets Kiros and Ward and they form a platoon together as they became friends and sharee each other's dreams and ambitions, Laguna's being the only one mentioned in the game. Throughout their time and adventures together, the three frequently fall victim to Laguna’s clumsy nature, though somehow always managing to complete their mission. In this time, Laguna falls in love with Deling City’s most famous lounge pianist, Julia Heartilly. She feels the same way about him but all of their interactions together end awkwardly thanks to Laguna's nervousness. One night however, at the behest of Kiros and Ward, Laguna manages the nerve to walk up to her piano while she is playing and though his leg cramps up and he is forced to retreat, Julia decides to invite him up to her room to talk. He follows and the two share their life dreams with each other before confessing that they’ve always watched each other from afar. She will eventually begin to write the song, "Eyes on Me" as dedication to their love. Their romance is cut short however, when Laguna, Kiros, and Ward are called away to fight in Centra, the main battleground against Estharian forces. During a mission to locate and observe a secret Estharian operation, Laguna and his friends are severely injured while fighting off hordes of enemy forces. With no other options left to them, Laguna tosses the unconscious Kiros and Ward off the side of a cliff into the ocean below before following after them himself. Laguna doesn't make the jump gracefully however, plummeting to the ocean waters unconscious. The three are separated by the sea and Laguna drifts until he washes up shore in a little village called Winhill where he is found by a woman named Raine Leonhart and her adopted daughter, Ellone.

For the next six months, Laguna has to stay in bed due to injuries from the fall. Raine nurses him back to health and he forms a close bond with her and Ellone, who calls him "Uncle Laguna". All other working men in Winhill were sent off to the war and Laguna starts the self-appointed "Monster Hunter of Winhill" since monsters have taken a liking to the defenseless village. He declares Raine to be his commander and Ellone to be the assistant-commander but never lets either of them go out with him on his hunting. Again six months later, Kiros was looking for him ever since he recovered eleven months ago. He finally finds him and tells him what's been going on. That Ward has lost his voice thanks to their previous battle and became a janitor at the D-District Prison (which Laguna has trouble believing) while Julia's now become a famous singer/songwriter and married a General Caraway from the Galbadian army after her "true love" never returned from war.

Laguna takes Kiros on his monster hunting mission where they talk more. Kiros begins about his dreams of becoming a journalist. Upon arriving back at the house, the two eavesdrop on a conversation between Raine and Ellone about Raine marrying Laguna to which Raine responds that they're two entirely different people and that there are things about Laguna that are just too tentative. Afterwards, Laguna gives Raine the report of how many monsters were killed and decides to rest. He hopes and prays that when he wakes up, he's not anywhere but where he is right now so that he can see Ellone and Raine again. Kiros responds that Laguna's changed a lot since they last met. In the next few months, Laguna and Raine fell in love with each other and Laguna proposes to her in the middle of a field not too far from Winhill, and they marry a little later. Everything was good until the day came that Ellone was kidnapped to Eshtar, while Laguna was away with Kiros getting his first article published in the Timber Maniacs magazine. Laguna promises Raine that he'll bring Ellone back to Winhill and an unknowingly pregnant Raine promises that she'll be waiting for him. Laguna and Kiros recruit their old friend Ward and the search for Ellone begins.

The three encounter many difficulties in finding Ellone and getting into Eshtar. They have to get money so they take part in a movie deal. Later, Laguna meets with Edea in her orphanage and asks her to keep an eye out for Elleone as well as Sorceress Adel as she's lookingfor her successor for the Sorceress power and with Edea being a Sorceress herself, she might be a target. Laguna eventually becomes separated from Kiros and Ward and once again becomes injured, this time winding up in Shimi Village, where he repays the Shimi's kindness and he became friends with the Moomba's, trying to teach them how to speak. Eventually, he is reunited with Kiros and Ward and they find a way into Esthar. They try to free Ellone, but are imprisoned inside the Lunatic Pandora Laboratory, where they join the Adel Resistance. Laguna becomes their leader after displaying his kindness to one of the Moomba's and immediately afterwards stages a jailbreak. Laguna escapes and they finally find Ellone, who's been kept safe this entire time under the protection of Dr. Odine, who has been trying to come up with a way of defeating Adel before she could pass on her abilities to the young girl. They then create the Sorceress Memorial to seal away the evil Sorceress. They construct an armored cryo-capsule, placing it inside the Memorial and crafting a simulacrum image of Ellone, whom Adel was desperately searching for to pass her powers onto and continue her reign of terror through her successor. Once Adel is informed that Ellone was being held inside this newly constructed building, the Sorceress transports herself there at once. Once at the Memorial, Adel sees the fake Ellone and moves inside to seize her. However, when she enters the cryo-tomb (later known as the Sorceress Tomb), she is trapped by Laguna and immediately flash-frozen before she can use her Sorceress abilities.

Due to Laguna's bravery and wisdom, the people of Esthar appoint Laguna the new President of Esthar. Ellone goes back to Winhill where she stays with Raine as she gives birth to Squall. Raine dies shortly after giving birth due to complications during childbirth. Ellone and Squall were sent to Edea's Orphanage on Centra, where Squall is raised believing Ellone to be his actual sister, forming a bond with her so strong it shatters him when she leaves.

Laguna remains President of Esthar for the next seventeen years and because of his duties to uphold a policy of seclusion and neutrality for his nation, he can't get away to see Ellone or Raine. He didn't even knew that Raine had passed away... Nor does he know about Squall until Ellone returns and tells him. Towards the end of the game, Laguna finally meets his son as well his comrades, aiding them in the infiltration of the Lunatic Pandora as well as the demise of the Sorceress from the future, Ultimecia. In the end Laguna finally returns and visits Raine's grave in Winhill, fondly he remembers the night he proposed to her. He is joined by Ellone, Kiros, and Ward while Balamb Garden soars magnificently overhead.

Fighting Style

Laguna's main weapon is a standard Galbadian assault rifle machine gun that he wields with devastating accuracy. He is not a sharpshooter by nature, but he can still outshoot most opponents with ease. During the movie, you'll also see him wielding a Gunblade. Right after it, he is forced into a real combat and he shows that he is quite proficient with it as well. He had training with the Gunblade while in the Galbadian military academy.

Etymology

Laguna's name derives from the word "lagoon", a shallow body of salt water separated from larger seas by small sandbanks or coral reefs. This is fitting as both his wife and son share a name linking to water.
