Laverne is one of the three gargoyle friends of Quasimodo and is friends with Hugo and Victor. She is also a character in The Hunchback of Notre Dame and its 2002 sequel.
Out of all three of the Gargoyles, Laverne is a motherly figure towards Quasimodo and always convinces him to do whatever he feels is right.
- Laverne sending off the birds that usually annoy her to attack Frollo's guards and crying "Fly my pretties, fly!" is a reference to the Wicked Witch of the West from the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz.
