Lars Kenning Killer Shrike
Height:   6' 1" Hair:  Reddish Brown
Weight:  190 lbs Eyes:  Brown
Lars is a reasonably handsome, urbane looking man in his early twenties. He dresses well and has a certain casual confidence. He's more of a thinker and talker than a do-er, and he looks the part of a modern young academic, as if he might be a student-favorite young professor seeking tenure or perhaps a promising writer of clever books that critics like and few real people will ever actually read. Approachable and pleasant, he's the sort that random people feel comforatable starting a conversation with in public.
Lars was orphaned when he was 8 by a horrific car accident which claimed both parents and the occupants of the other vehicle as well. Lars should not have survived, but somehow was "thrown clear" of the vehicle and was found thirty feet away still buckled into his car seat. and completely unscathed.

His remaining known family was in Europe and lacking any other care provider stateside, Lars was briefly held in a Child Protective Services run orphanage while attempts were made to contact his European kin. A week later a tall, stern looking man named Hans Sors arrived at the orphanage bearing various papers to prove himself a second cousin of Lars, and further to legally represent the family's interests in the US. He took custody, and Lars departed.

Cousin Hans lived in Berkeley, Ca and claimed to be a professor at the University of "advanced parapsychology". And though Hans never seemed to teach any classes at the campus, "students" would periodically come and go for "individual instruction". Hans was ill-suited to raise a young boy, but to be fair he did not shirk the responsibility, got Lars enrolled in a prestigious private school, and did an acceptable job of providing basic sustenance. Lars suffered from some emotional trauma, understandably, and Hans was particularly good at helping in this area, proving to be a skilled therapist.

By the time he was 10, Lars was sufficiently recovered from his ordeal and Hans deemed him ready to begin his apprenticeship. Hans revealed that Lars was a member of not one but two separate families that were each part of a larger cabal of interrelated family lines of Spellbinders with a provenance rooted in ancient times. Lars parents were of the Kenning and Sors houses specifically, but neither of them had an active magical talent and further their two houses had a long and mixed history of rivalry and broken alliances. Thus Romeo and Juliet style the two star-crossed lovers engaged in an illicit relationship, but opted to depart for the US to get some distance between themselves and their difficult families. According to Hans, Lars magical heritage was active, and that the boy had not survived the car accident by chance but rather had instinctively Channeled magic to translocate himself to safety, proving an impressive talent for the art.

Further, Hans also revealed that he himself, like many of the Sors family, was a member of an esoteric order focused on hunting dangerous supernatural threats, and he intended to train Lars to one day take his place. And thus Lars' apprenticeship began. Hans proved to be a hard but fair taskmaster and he carefully honed Lars skills for the next twelve years. After highschool Lars applied to and was accepted at Berkeley, and after graduation with a accelerated Masters degree in Library Sciences, Hans subsequently deemed Lars a journeyman Spellbinder and also sponsored him for induction into the Societatis ex Monstrum Interfectorum as a Interfector...aka a Hunter.

The Societatis helped Lars file the necessary paperwork to start the process of becoming a licensed Hunter with Section M, and soon Lars was out on his own pursuing the career Hans had prepared him for. However, truth be told, Lars would much rather be pursuing a life of esoteric research and academia.
Lars combines the soul of a good natured curiosity driven academic with the iron discipline of a trained protege honed from a very young age to be a weapon against the darkness. Considering the extreme disparity between his two aspects, Lars is amazingly well adapted, but sometimes his nature collides with his nurture, causing him some internal anxiety.

Left to his own devices, Lars would pursue little else beside pure magical research and experimentation, with no particular focus other than what seemed most interesting. However his Master, Hans, focused on spells with a combat application despite Lars general lack of interest and ineptness in that particular area.
"You don't say? How curious. And then what happened?"
Lars has bound and developed a solid mastery of a fair selection of powerful Spells, balanced between offense, defense, mobility, awareness, and utility. He also has developed impressive raw power (five Channelling dice) and is moderately resistant to Channelburn. He is reasonably knowledgeable about the supernatural world and knows a fair amount of Lore, and is skilled at conducting research when necessary to find specific knowledge relevant to a particular case.

He is also a member in good standing with an ancient order of Hunters with a history stretching back to the Dark Ages, known as Societatis ex Monstrum Interfectorum and can sometimes call on other members for information or aid.
Lars is a young Spellbinder with a reasonably balanced selection of bound Spells and impressive raw power. However, he is not very durable or coordinated and really shouldn't try to be a "tank mage". He is strong in a support role, or when protected by more physically capable allies.
