"She's aware that lust, like fear, is one of the most powerful motivators of human kind."
Elizabeth Diana LaCroix (born May 21, 1995) better known by her ring name "Lacie LaCroix" or The Sex Icon is an English professional wrestler, business woman and former model. She is currently signed to BGB (BadGalBehavior). She debuted in late 2014 after she stopped performing as an erotic dancer known as "Lolita" in the Vesuvius Gentlemen's Club (LA), Gomorrah (LV) Pole Position (LA).
At the 'December to Remember' iPPV in December 2015 she pinned Charlotte Melrose during a Fatal 4-Way where she won her first Women's Championship title and became the first in the division to hold it. During Episode 9 of VALOR wrestling, with the help of Gin Merano and fellow BGB Baddie Heather Courtial, Elizabeth was able to pin and defeat Jordan Ashba to become the final Women's Champion before the show's subsequent disbandment. She also posed for a cover and nude pictorial in the May 2017 issue of Playboy.
After much confusion and fascination with Elizabeth's choice in wrestling attire (primarily her constant wearing of high heeled stilettos) she announced in 2018 that she suffers from Metatarsalgia as well as other foot problems (such as shrinking tendons) she received from constantly wearing heels. Because of this her feet need to be kept in perched positions as walking and running can be painful and difficult if not wearing high heels. Although Elizabeth may have considered high-heeled footwear as "vital to her attire" it is now essential.
"She was ice. Inside, she was cold, cruel nothingness. It was the most beautiful and perfect thing I had ever seen"
Elizabeth was born in London, England (Kensington, Olympia) on May 21, 1995 to parents: business tycoon Janus Beresford Lovecraft III and fashion mogul Lilliana Lovecraft. Elizabeth and her mother later reverted back to Lilliana's maiden name "LaCroix". It has been speculated that this was due to her father's infidelity though Elizabeth's brother, Magnus Furio Lovecraft II, retained his father's surname.
It has also been rumoured that the Lovecraft family had multiple other children, through affairs or other means, though no solid evidence has surfaced on the matter.
Elizabeth's childhood consisted of learning multiple instruments (Violin, Piano, Flute...), languages, (French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, German, Mandarin, all of which she is now fluent) and a multitude of extracurricular activities. At 16 she was married to her first husband, Daniel Crawford. At 17, after the previous marriage seemingly deteriorated, Elizabeth married again to Silvano Calmero. Over the few subsequent years Ms. LaCroix continued to marry many prestigious and eligible bachelors from around the world (Farrouk Al-Jilani -2012-2012, Toshi Suzuki -2012-2013, Michael Yamaha -2014-2016, Prophit Ventura -2017-present) the majority of which were her father's associates.
Many theories have surfaced regarding these marriages; that either Elizabeth was used to carry out business agreements between Lovecraft Enterprise and its partners, later resulting in Elizabeth's distaste for her father ushering her to change her name, or that due to Elizabeth being written out of her father's will Elizabeth opted to marry men of power and high financial status in order to secure her lavish lifestyle. Regardless of these conspiracies Elizabeth's poor relationship with her father was confirmed in a 2015 interview where they discussed her past with plastic surgery as well as her family life. "... Overwhelming intelligence, a scintillating wit and the best body money can buy... And I still rate below a corpse..."
In early 2013 Ms. LaCroix was kidnapped from her family home in London. She was smuggled to the US where she was held hostage and her father was coerced into paying her kidnappers over $700,000. Theories conclude that she was taken due to her involvement with the 2012 Caligula's Casino mass fraud in Las Vegas though evidence suggests otherwise. LaCroix was found a week later in Nevada, shaken but seemingly unharmed. Many suspects were called in including Elizabeth's father, Janus Beresford Lovecraft, her brother Magnus Furio Lovecraft, as well as her best friend and former wrestler Elena Ren, among many of Caligula's employees and clientele. More theories believe Miss. Ren & Ms. LaCroix staged the kidnapping, due to Ms. LaCroix's DNA being found in Miss. Ren's Hollywood apartment, in order to regain access to her inheritance. Immediately after Elizabeth was found she was reinstated to her father's will.
After the heat in the media surrounding the situation subsided Elizabeth continued working in multiple gentlemen's clubs around Los Angeles from Spearmint Rhino to Vesuvius where she danced regularly. She would perform in a brown wig under the guise "Lolita" or a long blonde wig which would cover her body while she would perform as "Lady Godiva". During her time there she became acquainted with Elena Ren and later Layla Santiago. In an interview, when asked about her past, specifically regarding her past a pole-dancer she said "Well, I take pride in my appearance and I do love to enjoy myself. Dancing is what I love, it's what the men love... I don't see the harm with that."
"You wear that outfit, and men look at you, and it cheapens you. But when I wear it, it cheapens them."
Elizabeth had been training during her time in the US, initially just studying martial arts. The thrill of the fight led her to more extensive training where she began honing her snake style boxing (Shé Quán), Piguaquan, Koppo as well as minor Bartitsu from her mother. Though still practising with these styles they helped her excel her wrestling career quite quickly, spending little time in the BGB training facility before debuting as one of the original cast on the main roster. Though, arguably, she wasn't ready at that time she has since improved significantly.
Season 1: Episode 1: "Breaking & Entering"
On the first episode of BadGalBehavior Elizabeth made her debut in a match against Kaydean D'Avalos. She turned heads with her revealing attire and stiletto heels, dressed scantily clad, her head adorned with a crown. In a post match interview Ms. LaCroix regarded her revealing attire as battle armour which may give her a psychological edge against any opponent. Additionally, Elizabeth considers high-heeled footwear as vital to her attire, and has demonstrated balance and proficiency with them in ring.
Her first match ended in her losing to Kaydean, causing her much frustration and a negative reaction to Kaydean's show of sportsmanship.
During a promo at the end of the first episode Lacie was depicted cat fighting with former BGB "Baddie" Brooke though the reasons for this were never established.
Season 2: Thanksgiving Special!
In the BGB Thanksgiving Special 2015 Lacie competed against Keira Darkholme in a Native American vs Pilgrim costume contest. Lacie had apparently made sure to avoid any in ring confrontation with her backstage rhetoric in order to secure a win. Thus the contest was decided.
The winner would be decided by the public and would then be placed in the title picture. Lacie won the contest with 63% of votes allowing her to enter the upcoming title match.
Season 2: iPPV: December To Remember
On December 28, 2015 Lacie LaCroix participated against three other Baddies (Charlotte Melrose, Roxanne Marceau and Heather Courtial) where she battled and against all odds she managed to pin Charlotte Melrose to win the BGB women's championship. Her first title as well as becoming the first champion of BadGalBehavior.
She later celebrated by gloating about her win which caused her to be attacked by three former BGB Baddies known as "MTK".
During the large female wrestling event DivaMania Lacie LaCroix, with Heather Courtial teamed against Char-Lay (Charlotte Melrose and Layla Santiago) to represent BadGalBehavior alongside many other organisations/ free agents.
During the intense tag team Heather Courtial was pinned ushering Char-Lay to avert their attention to Lacie. After a short chase Lacie quickly made haste and escaped the two women, running backstage to avoid further combat.
She was later seen leaving the arena before the event was over accompanied by her husband at the time Michael Yamaha and Heather Courtial. She appeared upset.
Season 3: Episode 1: "A Rude Awakening"
In the first episode of season 3 Lacie LaCroix was set to defend her title against former BGB Baddie Akira in her debut match. Lacie intentionally chose an inexperienced baddie to defend her title against to ensure victory.
The match then commenced as the main event where Lacie managed to defeat Akira and retain her title.
Season 3: Episode 2: "Unresolved Issues"
In the next instalment of BGB, Lacie married her significant other,
Prophit Ventura the new CEO, after they'd been dating for two weeks prior. Prophit then explained that he understood Lacie's intentions and due to this she would have to defend her title against Charlotte Melrose, her maid of honour, in a ladder match.Lacie detested the idea and insulted Charlotte before quickly leaving the ring to prepare for the unscheduled stipulationAfter a long and tiresome match both women ended up injured and bloody and after many close calls Lacie eventually managed to retain her title.
Season 3: iPPV: 'Fashionably Late: December To Remember'
In this iPPV Lacie was again pushed into another match where she had to defend her title. Her opponent would be decided through a tournament earlier that night.
It was eventually revealed that the winner of the tournament would be Lacie's friend Heather Courtial who, prior to the match, she said was worthy.
Lacie then, later that night, would lose her title to Heather Courtial, unhappy that she lost it but relatively glad it was to a friend.
Season 3: Episode 3: "Kiss 'N' Tell"
Before episode 3, the BGBehavior twitter account (@BGBehavior) announced that Elizabeth would be hosting a "Dress to Impress" gown match against a mystery opponent. Through much speculation it was announced during the match that Elizabeth's opponent would be none other than Forever A Movement's (FaM) very own Pretty Little Psycho: Eve Heron.
The match itself started off playful between the two woman and after going back and forth 'Lacie LaCroix' was able to secure a victory over FaM's brightest Diamond.
Later in the episode, Elizabeth was seen entering the CEO's office where she attempted to reconcile her marriage with her husband and BGB CEO Prophit Ventura. "Let Lacie take you to Heaven". Through means of seduction we can only assume that her attempts were successful. Will this mean no more gruelling and surprising match ups?
After long silence from the CEO, BGBehavior's resident referee attempted to contact Prophit. He was surprised to see a very naked Lacie exiting the office with a nude Prophit writhing on the ground.
Toward the end of the episode, Lacie emerged, interrupting a match between Heather Courtial and Charlotte Melrose. This intervention ushered the formation of their trio tag team, Pole Position.
LaCroix Inc./ LACROIXGLAM:
During Elizabeth's time with BGB she was able to create a partnership between the wrestling organisation and her own, LaCroix Inc., a subsidiary of her father's company Lovecraft Enterprise. With this partnership Elizabeth was able to host an array of different fashion shows, showcasing her own designs and using the BGB ramp as a runway. LaCroixGlam became it's own mini plastic-surgery-on-the-go boutique where expert surgeons can attend to a number of different cosmetic augmentations quickly and efficiently all while offering their clientele luxury treatment and scenic views of the LA skyline from the upper floors of Diamond Heights.
The first show "LaCroix by Victoria's Secret" was held during the 2015 December To Remember; a collaboration between Elizabeth and Victoria's Secret which boosted her companies opening show significantly and propelled her sales prematurely. The lingerie designs were sold at an exclusive auction at the Rossi Estate in Italy. Copies of the designs were made at a later date, minus the expensive and fragile gemstones and they were then made limited edition and sold in Victoria's Secret stores.
The second show "LADY GODIVA" was the start of brave new designs, all leaving little the the imagination, which were sold through LaCroix's own stores on the ground, first and second floors of her business
building Diamond Heights.
The third show "Escapades in Wonderland" filmed back in November, 2016 in Versailles, France. Originally supposed to air with Fashionably Late: December To Remember, the show instead aired before and during Episode 3: Kiss 'N' Tell.
This show was a new direction for the Fashion By LaCroix brand as it began to have themed shows. Inspired by the iconic story of Alice in Wonderland, this sexy take on the children's fairy-tale will be sure to spice up anyone's role-playing love life.
Elizabeth also began appearing in VALOR Wrestling in promo vignettes (ep. 7-8) before her eventual controversial debut which soared her career exponentially.
VALOR Wrestling | Episode 8
On the 19th August 2017 Elizabeth made her first in ring appearance during episode 8 of VALOR Wrestling where she interrupted the CEO of VALOR, Edward Morales during his speech where she made her presence and intentions known. Later in the show she was seen entering the office of Edward Morales to discuss her upcoming opportunities through taboo and controversial means.
VALOR Wrestling | Episode 9
On the 5th October 2017 it was announced via VALOR Wrestling's twitter page (@FightForVALOR) that Elizabeth would be making her in ring debut during episode 9. It was stated that she would take on Jordan Ashba for her title.
On the 7th October 2017 Elizabeth entered a VALOR ring as a competitor under her usual stage name "Lacie LaCroix". She was able to defeat Jordan Ashba with help; Her manager and fellow Baddie Heather Courtial distracted the referee as Gin Merano was able to intervene. Elizabeth left as the Women's Champion.
By The end of October 2017 it was announced that VALOR Wrestling would be unfortunately disbanding.
VALOR Wrestling | VALOR X
On the 31st January 2018 VALOR Wrestling hosted their final show with their biggest PPV, Hosted by Forever A Movement (FaM). Which would be the grand finale for the company as Cameron Bash had purchased it and had no intention of letting the show continue.
Although not scheduled to have a match Elizabeth made her way to the ring with her title to say a few parting words before the shows conclusion. It was here that Elizabeth laid to rest the rumours regarding her and Mr. Morales's, the CEO of VALOR, relationship by confirming that they are true; That she had in fact used him to receive her title shot. She insulted him before announcing the end of their relationship as she had no further use for him - "I have everything a girl could wish for... and yet it's always the ugly ones with the money. Edward, darling, we're over".
Before leaving the ring Elizabeth decided to give the audience a "parting gift" which involved her, scantily clad, parading around the ring. This caused the show's rating to be bumped up to a TV14 "[S] Strong Sexual Situations".
As this was the final show in the company's history, VALOR Wrestling had disbanded thus Elizabeth "Lacie LaCroix"'s contract has been suspended.
VALOR Wrestling | RESURRECTION
Much to everyone's surprise and confusion, on May 18 2018, the VALOR Wrestling twitter account (@FightForVALOR) began tweeting mysterious hints at a resurgence of sorts. A day later another conspicuous tweet emerged, this time a poster displaying Elizabeth was posted to the account.
After a few more puzzling tweets and posters it was confirmed that there would indeed be another episode of VALOR Wrestling, marking its return (May 19 2018 - a match card was posted).
On June 23 2018 it was confirmed to be episode 11 of the shows episodic series.
"... Such possibilities are reduced to nothing. She is a mere trinket, an object in a cheap, degrading package."
Elizabeth has previously stated that she had tried out modelling which brought about a different kind of stress that she couldn't handle. Despite this her visage can be found in many editorial shoots, most of which were credited under a different name. The reasons for this are unknown.
"London's Hottest Export"/Playboy:
In 2017 Elizabeth posed for the May edition of Playboy which was Miami Vice in theme. Elizabeth posed in one of her very own designs for the cover and during her interview following her spread she refused to touch on her past with modelling and her childhood. The spread detailed a pictorial where Elizabeth posed nude under neon lighting. The issue also touched over other BGB "Baddies" Heather Courtial, Charlotte Melrose, and Layla Santiago through interviews etc.
Elizabeth currently resides in Los Angeles California in The Lovecraft Estate, LA, an Elizabethan inspired manor house custom designed by Lilliana LaCroix. Little is known about the building itself other than that Elizabeth lives there alone, her brother Furio visiting her regularly. She also has a skivvy of maids, chefs, and a chauffeur who seemingly live in the house with her.
Elizabeth is known for being "playfully immature". She is coquettish in nature, acting seductive nonchalantly yet ambivalently "cold".
When asked about her religion, it's public knowledge that every year she travels back to London for Midnight Mass at her family church, she responded that she is an atheist and she "simply believes in [herself]". Midnight Mass is simply a tradition in her family.

(OOC: Trivia/ Wrestling Persona):
- Lacie's father, Janus, was given his name after the Roman God who was said to have two faces in reference to her former split personality/ alter ego Narcissa LaCroix.
- Lacie's heterochromia was also inspired by her former split personality, the blue eye representing the Lacie personality & the green Narcissa. Inspired by the movie What Lies Beneath.
- Lacie has been inspired by a number of prominent characters whether it be through movies, video games or even comics. Her most notable inspirations (in reference to her character trope, personality, attitude and style) are: Emma Frost, Anna Williams, Christie , Poison Ivy, Excella Gionne, Velvet Velour and Jeanette Voerman. Though minor some other prominent inspirations consist of Lara Croft (pre 2013), Jessica Sherawat, and Candy Suxx.
- Ever since I first made Elizabeth she would always wear high heels in ring; it was a must accessory for her attire. Because of this shortly after her inception I gave her the super-kick as a finisher and dubbed it 'Stiletto'. The move kept the name throughout WWE2K16 where she did not retain her signature heeled attire. After some research I thought I could make more sense of this choice by giving Elizabeth metatarsalgia, shrunken foot tendons & other foot problems caused by wearing heels for an extended time. Because of this to even be able to walk comfortably Elizabeth would have to even wear heeled sandals/ slippers.
- Many question the possibility of classy rich women wanting to wrestle/ what would be their drive or goal? Elizabeth's is simple: She feeds on the rush. A daredevil of sorts, Elizabeth has always been given what she's wanted to the point that spending her own money is boring (hence her gold digging ways) and achieving things that many can't is important to her. Risking everything (her health, appearance) whether it be skydiving or wrestling, there are many things she wishes to conquer. This is also the reason for her wanting to strip (on top of running through the money she stole from her father), she requires/ almost needs to receive the attention of men for gratification.
- Elizabeth's image issues surfaced from a young age where her mother imposed ridiculous beauty regimines that included waist training from the age of twelve. Also as a secondary school graduation "present" her parents allowed her to get her first rhinoplasty surgery. Her father also helped with her promiscuous ways but "pimping her out" to seal business deals. Though of course her father never ushered into anything inappropriate the objectification most definitely contributes to her current ways.
- Elizabeth was never intended to be perfect, she's awfully childish and brash. I think character's riddled with flaws is what makes them interesting; gives them substance. Elizabeth, other than having an unhealthy obsession with her appearance also struggles from both "mummy & daddy issues". Even her appearance has been sculpted to look plastic, I tried to make her lips look intentionally swollen and studied implants to achieve that spherical shape on her unique body texture.
- And indeed, her flaws extend further. Elizabeth is unable to have children; she found out when she was younger that due to her hostile womb and low egg count it is highly unlikely that she could ever give birth. This in turn indefinitely had an impact on her attitude and outlook on life as well as worsening her self image.
- Her sexuality is power. I always found it interesting how beauty and sensuality, although can be widely shunned, can also be used to gain an upper hand or exert power over the weakness of people's temptations. Ergo, Elizabeth is a total slut in the least derogatory most empowering way. Making men and sometimes women submit to her subterfuge making her feel powerful. There is strength in beauty and strength in seduction; it makes men weak.
- One of Elizabeth's nicknames 'Lady Godiva' was inspired by the story of the Countess of Mercia. The story dates to at least the 13th century where 'Lady Godiva' rode naked – covered only in her long hair – through the streets of Coventry. This was also one of Elizabeth's stage names when stripping.
- Elizabeth was never actually "kidnapped". She schemed with her friend and former tag partner Elena Ren to coerce Elizabeth's father out of more of his money as well as confirming her reinstatement to his will.
- Elizabeth was written out of the will in the first place due to stealing her father's credit card information & fleeing to Los Angeles. There she used his card to finance her plastic surgery & expensive taste. Though when there the money quickly ran out
- Unbeknownst to many Elizabeth is a lot more intelligent than she lets on. She maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout her school life whilst also having affairs with two teachers and her family's priest.
