Laurel Weaver is a resourceful scientist who helps Agent K and Agent J. She is fascinated by anything scientific, particularly when two aliens disguised as humans are brought to the morgue. 

Role in the film

Laurel first appears at the NYPD station and talks with James Edwards about the fugitive he chased down, and invites him to come to the morgue to look at the fugitive's mangled body. However, she is neuralyzed by Agent K on the way out.
