Even drooling imbeciles can achieve success in certain fields, sir. Mad science, for example.
~ Lawrence

Lawrence is Dr. Nefarious' Butler and a supporting antagonist in Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal as well as Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time. He also makes appearances in Ratchet: Deadlocked and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One.

He is voiced by Michael Bell.


Lawrence is loyal to Dr. Nefarious and he always does what Nefarious says. Nefarious and Lawrence are endangered, together with a number of galaxies. When Captain Qwark destroyed Nefarious' body, Lawrence built him a new body. Nefarious ordered him to destroy Ratchet and Clank.

Lawrence secretly followed Clank to the Orvus Chamber. And Lawrence saved his master before death, such as when Ratchet and Clank were defeating Nefarious Lawrence  rescued him before the destruction of the Space Station. Dr. Nefarious and Lawrence's current location is unknown, and they weave the following plans.


Oh, dear. That was your audition for Galactic Idol, wasn't it? Oh, my mistake, sir. Dreadfully sorry.
~ Lawrence.
(Dr. Nefarious: Did you hear that, Lawrence?) You put the wit in twit, sir.
~ Dr. Nefarious and Lawrence.
(Dr. Nefarious: To think, they called me insane, Lawrence. We'll see who's insane... when my pets have exterminated all life on this miserable planet!) That should clear things right up, sir.
~ Dr. Nefarious and Lawrence.
(Dr. Nefarious: What do you mean we can't teleport to a planet?) I'm afraid we're well out of range, sir. Perhaps if you had bothered to specify a destination... (Dr. Nefarious: When will we be in range?) Oh, I'm sure something will come along, in say, five or ten thousand years. (Dr. Nefarious: I don't believe this! Now what?) I don't suppose you can play drums? (Dr. Nefarious: LAWWWWWWREEEENNCCCCEEEE!!!!!!!!)
~ Dr. Nefarious and Lawrence.
(Dr. Nefarious: So this is the Q-Force I've heard so much about. Pathetic! I could annihilate you all and it wouldn't even make Supervillain Weekly!) But you'd do the fashion world a tremendous favour.
~ Dr. Nefarious and Lawrence.
(Dr. Nefarious: Say hello to...) Not the Hypersonic Brainwave Scrambler! (Dr. Nefarious: THE HYPERSONIC BRAINWAVE SCRAMBLER!)
~ Dr. Nefarious, Lawrence and the same character regarding the Hypersonic Brainwave Scramblers .
(Dr. Nefarious: Lawrence, what's going on? You said we were coming within range of a space station!) Well, we were, sir. How was I supposed to know it would suddenly explode? (Dr. Nefarious: LAWRENCE!!!) (Lance: Oh Janice, promise me you'll never leave me again for that Englebert.) (Janice: Oh Lance! You make me feel like a young boy again!) (Lance: Say what?)
~ Dr. Nefarious and Lawrence.
