"'Scuse me. Who ordered the hamburger... with AIDS? In this restaurant, a hamburger deluxe comes with french fries, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and AIDS! Do anyone got a problem wit that? Aw baby, it's too late for that. Faggots been breeding your cows, raisin' your chickens, even brewin' your beer long before I walked my sexy ass up in this mother fucker!"
Lafayette is a flamboyant, charismatic gay man. Although partaking in very illegal activities, he's a good person at heart, and is careful not to harm his customers with the drugs he deals. He takes care of his loved ones, no matter what strange problems they have. He is suspicious and went through a lot in his life. He is the kind of guy with a dark sense of humor.
While the nature of his abilities are not explicitly stated in the series, Lafayette is noted by many (Ruby Jean Reynolds and Jesus Velasquez) to have strong mystical power within himself. His great-great grandmother was a practitioner of magic and is assumed that Lafayette has a natural affinity for magic as he was seen to successfully cast spells with Jesus' circle. During late season 3, Lafayette began to experience visions and images of people and things, which was believed by Jesus to had been his latent magical potential awakened by the vampire blood he and Lafayette consumed. It was later revealed that Lafayette was a medium, allowing him to see and communicate with spirits of the deceased. Due to this, Marnie possessed Lafayette at the end of season 4. While under possession, Marnie forced Jesus to transfer his magic to Lafayette's body, killing Jesus in the process. Though Marnie has crossed over, Jesus's magic still surfaces when Lafayette becomes emotional.
