Lazard Deusericus is a SOLDIER union executive in Shinra Electric Power Company, and makes appearances throughout Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-. He sends Zack Fair on missions throughout the game's first few chapters. At this time, the SOLDIER department is independent, and the union executive oversees SOLDIER's management and draws up rough strategy guidelines.
He was voiced by Junpei Morita in the Japanese version, and by Stefan Marks in the English version.
Lazard wears a striped blazer paired with a pink or white shirt, a purple or blue tie, and a pair of white gloves. He wears blue glasses. He has coiffed blond hair and blue eyes. As an Angeal Copy, Lazard takes on Angeal's hairstyle and face, but due to the many years he has begun to degrade until his hair is white and his clothing faded. He bears the same two white wings on his right side that Angeal does.
Lazard is polite, courteous and friendly to his SOLDIER subordinates, but maintains a professional conduct about them at the same time. He recognizes skill in Zack and praises him for the quality of service he contributes, personally having him handle missions of importance after seeing him in the field in spite of only being a Second Class. When speaking to Zack while at the end of his life as an Angeal Copy, Lazard tells Zack that he aided Hollander and Genesis out of a desire for vengeance against Shinra, but now that he is an Angeal Copy, his desire for revenge has faded, and he now wishes to help Zack and rescue Genesis to save the world. Zack attributes this to Angeal's will living on with in Lazard, but if this is the reality or not is unclear.
