Connor DeLaurier is a Senior (Grade 12) at Degrassi Community School. He is the godson of Archie Simpson. He is highly intelligent though socially challenged as he suffers from Asperger's Syndrome. In season 11, he gained interest in women's underwear, leading him to the point of stealing pairs behind his victims' backs.
Connor was suspended and sent to attend school at Balton, a program that helps kids like Connor deal with their hormones. He later returned to Degrassi in time for his junior year and joined the Degrassi Football Team. Connor is best friends with K.C. Guthrie, Wesley Betenkamp, and Dave Turner. He is also good friends with Clare Edwards, Alli Bhandari, Adam Torres, before his death and Mike Dallas, Mo Mashkour, and is currently dating Jenna Middleton. He is portrayed by AJ Saudin.
Season 8Connor DeLaurier is the geeky and smart godson of Archie Simpson who is living with Snake and Spike in order to attend the Gifted Program at Degrassi Community School, and was introduced in Uptown Girl (1). He is shown to be obsessive about keeping things the same (sitting at the same desk; wearing the same clothes, etc.). He quickly becomes friends with Clare Edwards, along with her friends K.C. Guthrie and Alli Bhandari .
In With or Without You, Connor was being bullied by Johnny DiMarco, when Degrassi Community School goes on a field trip to the woods. It was initiated when Connor was talking to K.C. Guthrie about his prized Spotted moth collection. Connor tells him things about how he would get better Moth catching results when street lights are not a factor. Johnny DiMarco then tells Connor to shut up and punches a hole through Connor's Moth catching net. Connor & K.C. later take revenge on Johnny DiMarco by placing a snake in his tent while he was playing cards with Alli Bhandari, not knowing Alli was with Johnny.
In Lost in Love, both K.C. and Connor ask Clare to the Sweetheart Dance. The two boys started fighting over her, only to have her reject them both. Later on, she regrets this decision and decides to go with K.C., making Connor feel rejected. Connor then comes up with a way to pressure Clare into going with him, and Clare reluctantly agrees. At the dance, Connor forces Clare on the dance floor. She leaves after feeling uncomfortable with him. On her way out, she bumps into K.C., who asks her to dance with him. She agrees and they dance comfortably for awhile, however, the moment is short lived when Connor barges in. He storms off in anger and Clare follows.
In Causing a Commotion, The Shep trips over Connor's lamp that he has next to his computer, and gives him a detention. Clare sticks up for Connor by buying everyone in the class a lamp to put on their desk so that Connor can keep his, but the Shep gets angry and gives everyone detentions. Later at detention, Connor is tapping his pencil and Alli keeps telling him to stop, but he won't listen. She gets up and grabs his pencil from him, and he overreacts by spitting on her. Then she calls him a freak and breaks his pencil in half, and drops it on the desk. He gets up and pushes her, and she falls backwards. The Shep kicks Connor out of school despite Mr. Simpson's pleas not to.
Clare goes to his house later on and tries to comfort him, and sees that he's having a break down and wants to leave Degrassi. She sees that all his clothes are the same - Clare's a little confused about this, and asks him why his clothes are all the same. He melts down and starts throwing things around, and she leaves. The next day, Clare comes to school out of her private school uniform, for a change. Mr. Simpson tells her that Connor has Asperger's Syndrome, and that it's hard for him to learn social skills and rules. Initially, Clare is unaccepting of this fact, but later she goes to his house and apologizes and provides some insight on Connor's conumdrum. The next day, Alli and K.C. are filming The Shep's "principal of the year" video, with him giving his thank you speech. Clare interrupts and tells The Shep that he should let Connor back into Degrassi.
After some arguing, The Shep calls Clare "a little bitch" and walks out. Luckily, the video camera was still rolling, and they show the whole school this video of the real Shep. Everyone leaves the auditorium and goes on strike outside, chanting "No more Shep!' The Shep wound up getting suspended and went to "sensitivity training" for a few months or so, later coming back as the principal.
Connor is allowed back at Degrassi, and says he's relieved to have been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, as it means there are people out there who share his struggles.
In Touch of Grey, Connor and K.C. show interest in trying out for the Basketball Team. He finds out that K.C. lives in a group home by researching the phone number K.C. put on the try out list. K.C. is embarrassed and makes Connor swear to keep it to himself. Connor initially agrees, but then tells Reese and his friends to try to intimidate them. Alli and Clare proceed to find out. K.C. then thinks Clare doesn't want to hang out with him anymore and feels ostracized. In the end of the episode K.C. and Connor make the team.In Danger Zone, Connor is confused by the fighting between Clare and K.C, and when prompted by Alli to fix it, invites Clare and K.C over to his house, without either of them aware of the other's attendance. He attempts to repair their relationship by locking them in his basement/room, which doesn't go over well. At the black and white dance, Clare talks to Connor about how K.C. is acting like an idiot, and Connor tells her that K.C. likes her. She proceeds to have Connor trick K.C. into the storage room again, so that she could make up with him. After he helps her out, Connor dances with another girl in his grade, who has a crush on him.

In Shoot to Thrill, Bruce stole Connor's lunch and he made Bruce surprised when Bruce found decoy pieces of food in it. It also shows that Connor handles his Asperger's Syndrome more maturely, because Bruce told Connor that he was psycho for having the decoy lunch. Connor simply shrugged his shoulders and laughed.

In What a Girl Wants (1), Dave is back at Degrassi and is with his best friend Connor. Connor and Dave both check out Alli as she's walking into school. He suggests that Dave should be tenth grade class rep, because the title is in Dave's best interest - this was caused my Connor's corrupted formula. Alli logs on to a computer and yells at Dave for ranking her #42 on the Hottest Degrassi Girls List. Dave is embarrassed and doesn't know how to react. Later on, he and Connor are in the hallway and they are talking about why Alli is acting so weird, since they were friendly all summer.

In homeroom Wesley and Connor listen to Sav's "Band Slam" which was about signing up with your band to enter a contest. Wesley asks Connor what his favorite band is, but Connor told him he doesn't have one. Wesley then gets the idea to create a band, even though they don't have talent. Connor then tells him that their band can be his favorite.
Later, they go sign up for the "Band Slam," putting Dave's name on the list, and naming the band "The Three Tenners."

While Connor tells them that she's just a friend that he plays "ROD" with, Wesley agrees that ROD is cool, but that they're his friends. Connor tells them that she's different, and she listens to him and understands him.

Connor leaves, and a few moments after Wesley and Dave walk in trying to find Connor, they don't know where he is, and Wesley goes on the ROD website to see if anything is up, Dave figures that Connor probably went with the online girl to get the expansion pack. They decide to go before things happen, but they email Mr. Simpson explaining everything. In line Connor is bombarded with flattery from LoveQueen16, and is confused, and embarrassed. They make plans to go back to her house to test out the expansion pack afterward.

Connor has started liking his new style since he has been getting many compliments and looks and thinks that it would be a bad idea. He asks her if she still wants to win the competition and she says that does, so he says that it would be irrational for him to change back, unknowingly upsetting Jenna in the process, who is jealous of all the attention he's been getting. When the king and queen are about to be announced, he is holding Jenna in anticipation and is very happy when he hears their names. After going onstage and putting on their crowns, he holds her hand and lifts both into the air. By doing so, the strap on Jenna's tight dress snaps and her breast is revealed to everyone at the dance. Connor is shocked and doesn't know what to do, standing there awkwardly even after Jenna leaves the stage. He soon runs after her and Alli. He meets her in the bathroom and hands her a green t-shirt to cover up her dress and she puts it on. He then asks her why she wore such a revealing dress and she tells him it was because she was jealous of the stupid niner girls.
