- —Laura, explaining her death through channeling
Laura Dawkins (born October 5, 1983) is a minor character in Beyond: Two Souls.
Only daughter of Nathan Dawkins, both Laura and her mother were killed in a car accident due to a drunk driver, when Jodie was still very young. She and Helen make an appearance in a total of three chapters — Hauntings, Night Session, and Black Sun. In the former two, she and Helen will encounter Jodie and eventually guide her to Nathan's office, where he grieves for them with a bottle of alcohol. Jodie then channels both her and Helen in an attempt to console Nathan of their deaths.
In the chapter Separation, though unseen and only heard, her memory is engraved on a music box her father had gotten her. Jodie will witness Laura receiving it during an experiment, when Nathan tests her affinity to see others' emotional presence.
In the chapter Black Sun, should Nathan shoot himself while in the condenser, he will reunite with his wife and daughter, and the trio will fade away in a shower of particles.
