~ T H E C H A R A C T E R ~
Full name: Lars Hofstee
Hometown: America, a small village in the south of the Netherlands. Though he has wandered around a lot.
Teaches: Sport and Art.
Experience: He has worked at this school for about a year now.
Extra Details: Lars has a blue and white striped scarf that he nearly never takes off. It is very precious to him and if you don’t want him to get angry at you, I advice you don’t touch it.
Lars can change certain things about his physical appearance at will. But when he is in his human form, he is most often seen as a rather intimidating looking man of about 200 centimeters tall. Meaning he is not easily overlooked. His chosen hairstyle doesn’t make him seem any shorter either. If anything, it only adds a few inches. He has green eyes and light brown hair. His body is rather muscular and he does his best to keep it that way. Right above his right eyebrow, he has a small scar.
His dog form is possibly the most frightening of all. He is way above the size of an average dog and With his monstrous appearance, the comparison to a hellhound isn’t uncommon.
While he is in his cat form, he is most likely the least intimidating. This form is perfect for luring his victims. Though he still has claws, which he can and will use if the situation asks for that.
In his bird form he looks most like an overgrown raven. He is 90 centimeters tall and has a wing span of about 250 centimeters. His talons are long and dangerous looking.
He can make himself look less scary and act friendly as well. But in most cases it is more convenient to show himself on his most intimidating.
No matter what form he is in, he always has the same piercing green eyes, which light up a bit in the dark.
A Kludde is a (water)demon who can take on several appearances. They can change into a big black dog, a black cat or an enormous black bird. The form they take on depends on the situation that they are in. For example he would be able to change into an innocent looking cat to lure passerby’s.
Kluddes often hide under bridges or in hollow trees and wait for people to pass by at night. When one does, they jump on their back, becoming a burden they can’t shake off until day comes, or the Kludde’s victim reaches their destination. The Kludde will make itself heavier, so it is harder for his victim to carry him.
They can also make themselves bigger or smaller at will. They are also required to wear a chain around their left ankle.
Lars is not a person you want to mess with. Being tall, muscular and straight-faced, he often comes across as rather intimidating. He never really had a problem with this himself though. He is very direct in both words and actions to the point where people might consider him as rude. He doesn’t speak a lot though, only when it’s necessary. In his opinion, actions say more than words.
You wouldn’t say it at first, but once you get to know him, he’s a good guy. There aren’t many that get close to him though, due to his distant attitude. Most people aren’t willing to make the effort to push past his uncaring exterior, but those who manage to get a place in this guy’s heart, have a good friend.
What many people wouldn’t expect from him either, is that he has a weak spot for cute things, like animals and young women. Despite not looking like it, he is good with children and enjoys working with them.
Even though he teaches sport, Lars smokes. Somehow he is able to keep his body in a good condition even with this habit of his. He enjoys a good beer just as much as the next guy and isn’t afraid to get drunk every once in a while.
His favourite sports are soccer, ice skating, swimming and cycling. Though next to sport, he has another passion: art. For himself it’s mostly painting that he enjoys, but he knows a lot about the other aspects of art as well.
Lars grew up in the south of the Netherlands, not far from either the Belgian and German border. He wandered around a lot, not staying in a village for to long. For soon after he settled in one there would be rumours of a demon haunting travellers at night. They would hear the sound of chains and suddenly feel a heavy weight on their shoulders. He would make sure to leave each time before he was found out.
In his travels, he came across a school which was educating mythical creatures like himself. This was not much longer than a year ago. Deciding that it wouldn’t hurt to look into it a little more, he entered. Not long after, they accepted him as a teacher there.
Though he appears serious, this guy can also be quite mischievous at times. He enjoys playing little pranks on people, or lurking in the dark hallways of the school at night to jump on students who are up past curfew.
Role Play Sample:
Netherlands walked through the streets of Londinium. Smoke drifted up into the air as he took a drag of his much needed smoke. Having a woman on the ship was always a lot of work. Specially if said woman was one’s little sister. They would be demanding things (such as letting her go), and it didn’t take long before Lars had found himself in need of a break. They hadn’t seen each other in a long time, and were both stubborn as always. There weren’t a lot of moments they would agree on something, and small fights were sure to happen. In short, they weren’t exactly as close as siblings should be. But still, Lars would be damned if he let her go back to Spain. The girl may have claimed he hadn’t laid a finger on her, but how would he know whether that was true or not? For all he knew she was trying to cover for the bastard.
He had left Angeline back on The Flying Dutchman with the rest of the crew to look after her. That meaning, making sure that she wouldn’t escape. Because he expected her to try. Picking her up from the streets to take her to his ship hadn’t exactly gone as smoothly as he had expected. She had struggled and refused to come with him. Though soon she would see it was all for the best. Belgium wouldn’t be in any danger of getting hurt by Spain, and Netherlands would have another crew member. All would be well as soon as she accepted that faith.
Netherlands shook his head while he let out a heavy sigh. He had come here to take a breather, not to think about everything that had happened over and over again. This was his time. Just a man and his smoke. When he got back to his ship he would deal with Angeline again. Not now.
Somewhere far in the distance some police sirens could be heard. Netherlands raised an eyebrow. That couldn’t be good. The military wasn’t fond of pirates, that wasn’t a secret, so Lars couldn’t help but suspect it had something to do with that at first. Other than his own, Spain’s ship would have to be docked here right now, since he had been able to find Belgium. Though his own ship wasn’t looking any different from a normal merchant ship right now, and he doubted Spain would be so stupid not to change the flag and sails before docking. Even though he hated the guy, he would give him that much credit. So most likely this was something different this time.
Though just to be sure, Lars moved away from the main road and into the back streets and alleyways. It wasn’t long until he heard running footsteps. Though he caught them just a little to late. As he turned around to look at who was approaching, said person dashed out of an alleyway and crashed into him. The force with which the other hit him wasn’t strong enough to knock him off his feet, though it did make him stumble back a little. The tall Dutchman looked down on a very guilty looking blond. Though listening to the many sirens in the distance and seeing the guy in front of him, something didn’t quite seem to fit. He didn’t really look like someone who would commit a terrible crime (specially not with that stuffed animal under his arm), so why were the authorities after him?
