Like her mother, Laurel is very competitive, with a first-place-or-nothing kind of mentality. She is constantly fighting with her sister Holly over who is the better head counselor, and was upset when Chiron announced that anyone who makes it out of the three-legged death race alive would get a trophy, as she believes only the fastest pair should get one. It is said that she and Holly were made co-counselors of their cabin so that they would compete with each other and that otherwise, they would’ve already taken over the camp and declared a dictatorship. Also, in The Trials of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy, Laurel and her sister Holly Victor are shown making fun of Apollo, showing that she and her sister are both slightly judgmental and power-based.
- Laurel wreaths are given to Olympic Athletes who win in their respective events, mainly track and field.
- Her last name, Victor, is used to describe a winner.
