a topic about laras, but not about her not being Mesanna (she's not)

In TSR glossary it says that Laras is "a woman of surprising knowledge and a shocking past". Can anyone enlighten me on what this is about?

It references her youth. Despite her current appearance and girth, she was quite a beauty and flirt back in the day. That is what drew her to Min (Elmindreda, Min's alter-ego in the Tower, reminded Laras of her youth and younger self.)

ok that makes sense with the shocking past. i wouldn't really call that shocking though. but what about the surprising knowledge bit?


The kind of knowledge that would be suprising to find in someone of the White Tower - especially in an aged overweight cook -  but not, say, in a 'hell' in Arad Doman. Sometimes the meaning of particular words used tells you more about the speaker than the subject.
