Laharl is a recurring character in the Disgaea series. Arrogant and self-centered, Laharl attempts to maintain the attitude of a typical demon. He is actually a half-demon, due to his mother being a human. He is known for his evil laugh which is heard numerous times throughout the series. The first game in the series, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness chronicles his attempt to inherit his title of Overlord after the death of his father, King Krichevskoy, and his eventual discovery of love.
Laharl’s appearance hasn’t changed much between games, but there are some noticeable differences. In Disgaea 1 he is shown to have short blue hair with a set of antennae-like hair strands coming off of it, bright red eyes, pointy ears and a rather unimpressive body. He wears a red cape that by Disgaea 2 has been changed from one cape trail to two cape trails. His other clothes include a pair of red shorts, red-and-brown shoes and a set of gold bracelets.
