Without the care of her parents, Lauryn was taken in by her grandparents. Living with her grandparents, she was a spoiled child and given to her whatever she needed, which explains her behavior. But after the death of her grandfather and the resulting senile dementia of her grandmother, Lauryn was sent to the Flemmington Girls' Institute.
At the institute, Lindsay became friends with other older girls thanks to her love of fashion and photography, she soon became close friends with Anna Zerische, then met Jennifer Sutton and Lindsay Silverhat. Despite nearly 18 years old, she often displays an immature behavior in which Lindsay doesn't argee and gives the two a rocky start, but as well a lovely person who has suffered the loss without parents next door and removed from the care of her grandmother, she shows out her soft side.
