Lake (Formely known as Mirror Tulip, or M.T for short) is the main protagonist of Infinity Train Book 2, and is the mirror version of Tulip Olsen.
She is voiced by Ashley Johnson, who also voices Tulip Olsen.
When not reflecting Tulip, she has an appearance as metallic as the car that gave her a voice. Unlike Tulip, she doesn't need glasses to see properly, and her hair is cut shorter after a narrow escape from the mirror agents who threatened to kill her. She also has a portion of Tulip's Swiss-army knife on her arm, allowing her to move freely in the prime world by having the mirror reflect on itself. In Book Two, Lake makes further changes to her appearance. She wears a bracelet that she created from a pen chain from the Pencil Bank Car that she spray-painted black. She wears jeans and a black shirt with the sleeves ripped off. She wears brown boots, one of which she hides Tulip's Swiss-army knife inside. She drilled holes into both of her ears and by using one of the train cars wheels, shaved all her hair off and in the process, a small part of her eyebrow.
Lake tries to distinguish herself as much as possible from her Prime World counterpart. She's at first bitter about having to spend her life reflecting everything Tulip does, and has a dislike of coding to completely contrast Tulip's love of it. She's also much more open about needing help than Tulip is, a trait which she calls out Tulip on. She also finds the Pencil Bank Car incredibly interesting, in contrast to Tulip finding it boring.
It shown in Book Two that Lake maintains a strong belief that everyone should be free to make their own choices. This displayed when Lake becomes angry after Jesse tries to come up with a name for Alan Dracula, without its consent.
Powers and Abilities
- Metallic Body: Like all Mirror People, Lake is near indestructible. She can survive falls and heavy strikes that would be considered fatal to an average human. This also gives her super strength, as she is able to chop and break through thick tree branches with her bare hands and crushed Jesse's phone without much effort.
- Unnatural Weight: Lake is shown to be extremely heavy, the best example being one of the games she and Jesse play at the carnival in the Lucky Cat Car to reach a combined score of 1000 points. They end up in a weight game where the heaviest contender is the winner. Jesse is confident they'll win with Lake, she gives it a try and the two win, damaging the machine in the process.
- Basic Combat Skills: Despite having no formal training, Lake is somewhat proficient at hand-to-hand combat, a requirement due to her status as a fugitive. This is first seen when she defeats a car full of anthropomorphic rabbits before changing her appearance, then later overpowers two members of The Apex who had been restraining her.
- Mirror Dependency: Like all Mirror People, Lake cannot move freely in the Prime World without a reflective surface. Fortunately, Tulip solves this problem by giving Lake her Swiss-army knife.
- Anti-Reflection Weaponry: The sander-like tonfas used by the Flecs can potentially grind her down into nothing. This is first seen when Agent Mace cuts off a large portion of Lake's hair while attempting to kill her.
- Her hair was cut short when she switched to the "prime world", it being cut off by one of the Mirror Police when switching.
- The rest of her hair was cut by her at the beginning of The Black Market Car.
- Seven months after Tulip leaves the train, she walks past a mirror in her home whilst leaving with her father and does not have a reflection.
- Lake having a resemblance to Tulip and having a metallic complexion is similar to Metal Mario from the Super Mario franchise.
