— W. Vennewitz, LAUGH-LAST's Sacrifice Quote

LAUGH-LAST, also known by his acronym LL, can be sacrificed to and sent prayers if the player has the Light of Rebellion.

Little is known about LAUGH-LAST besides his apparent enjoyment for humor, especially at the group's expense. It is his nature to stand apart.[1] While often aloof and playful, it was specifically stated he is not the Voice of humor.[2] His symbol looks like a right hand with it's index and middle fingers crossed and thumb pointing out. In a dream, he mentioned only punching up was humorous, [citation needed] and his quote on the ritual table relates a story of humiliating those in power. This has led to speculation that spite or schadenfreude is part of his domain. SPEAK-AS-ONE has warned that LAUGH-LAST has a darker side that he hides well with his silly nature. "DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE HIM. MANY HAVE. THEY ARE GONE NOW. HIS ABSURD BLATHERING… LIKE THE LIGHTS OF DEEP SEA LIFE. A DISTRACTION. SAVAGERY BEHIND."[3]

History[edit | edit source]

Before the Game[edit | edit source]

LAUGH-LAST brought the idea of jokes in to the early tribes of mankind. Confused, THEE-I-DARE shunned LAUGH-LAST, because he saw joking as dangerous to survival. TID didn't realize it was a means for coping, and blames himself for LAUGH-LAST becoming vindictive. Being shunned changed him.[4]

LAUGH-LAST and IN-HER-TEETH were considered "married", in Voice terms, which meant they shared hosts between the two of them.[citation needed] THE-MEASURE-CUTS commented that humankind has frequently used humor to cope with death, and thus we have made strange bedfellows of them, despite how different the two of them are.[5] LAUGH-LAST says he finds the idea of death so morbid, and that it isn't a part of the game. He says death is the end of the game, and he doesn't want to end the game when it's beautiful, fun, and makes him laugh.[6]

In-Game[edit | edit source]

THE-MEASURE-CUTS stated that he will ensure LAUGH-LAST's safety, should he join The Pact, and said he will be welcomed in.[7] Surprised by the offer, and after being told THEE-I-DARE is willing to apologize for shunning him in the past, LAUGH-LAST is currently considering being a part of the Pact, as long as the apology is public. He also mentioned wanting to have the chance to make THE-MEASURE-CUTS laugh.[8]
