René Laurent (ルネ・ロラン, Rune Roran) is a Knight of St. Michael that is in the Ashley Strike Force.
Laurent has dark skin and bright red hair with purple eyes and orange hair berades. He wears red and white robes as a member of the Knights of St. Michael and has the yellow Britannian Military emblem plastered on his uniform.
Rene first appears in Caesar's Palace, St. Petersburg where he and the other knights of the order are present for the knighting of Shin Hyuga Shaing as the next grand master of the Knights of St. Michael. After the order has its headquarters relocated into Russia near St. Petrsburg, Laurent is present when his commander, Ashley Ashra is bored and asks his men what the most crucial thing a soldier needs in battle. Luck is the answer according to Ashley and he demonstrates this by pointing a gun with one bullet in it and himself and Jean Rowe to which neither of them die.
He's present later on during the Battle of Slonim/Operation Gamma where he engages the EU forces present in the Belarusian city and destroys an Alexander Drone and mockling asks if they were the Ghost of Hannibal that he's heard so much about.
