Lauer is based on the real life journalist of the same name.
Lauer is quite a nosy busybody and something of an insensitive jerk. He is mean, rude, arrogant, greedy, and selfish.
His attitude is what drives Siegfried to a bitter hatred for Lauer, irritating Roy, who initially feels that Lauer has always been good to him and Siegfried. Later, during Siegfried and Roy's fight, when Lauer comes in and tells them to stop, Roy realizes Siegfried was right about Lauer always interrupting. He and Siegfried then make up by sharing licorice together.
Lauer has dark brown hair and brown eyes.
He wears a black business suit.
