Laurie is quiet, and can come off as unfriendly or prickly. Really she's just over-defensive. She like to read a lot, but it's usually interrupted. You're likely to find her perched in a corner trying to get a quiet moment. She is Milo's long suffering partner.
Milo is a cheerful bean. He likes making people smile, wearing eyeliner to work and the gentle sound of wine pouring. His best friends are Laurie and Mr. Dengar. Often mistaken as being non-too-bright, he prefers to focus on enjoying the simpler aspects of life.
