Alaric Kos

Basic Info:

Player: Varren_Erelim

Position: Negotiator/Intelligence Officer

Demeanor: Cool and collected in almost any situation. He doesn’t let anything get to him at all. Friendly enough but doesn’t go out of his way to be helpful to other people. Shows a mild distaste for larger groups or people that are overly friendly. Tends to keep to himself or very small amounts of people. Seems to put a lot of care into his appearance.

Nature: Alaric is a bit of a vain, self serving asshole. He dislikes most people as a default and considers them never as a real friend even if they do earn being his fake friend. He is the star actor on the stage of life and everyone else are just props with personality. Willing to pretend to able a person's friend and associate with them but never go out of his way for them. He prefers nonviolence and will often avoid openly antagonizing people unless he really dislikes a person.

Description: Alaric looks young for his age and is easily described as pretty in a general sense. He could be even be considered slightly feminine looking at the right angle. He is pale skinned and stands at 5’8” with steel blue eyes and naturally dark gray hair. His hair is style to fade from long in the front to short in the back. It is longest in the front, going from chin length to ear length from the left side of his face to the right and is parted so it is not in his eyes. Alaric is never seen in anything less than formal wear, almost always in a three piece suit with or without the jacket.

Personal History:

Alaric was born into a well off family in Croatia that moved to London shortly after his birth. His father owned a business based in steel and his mother worked with MC&D. From a young age he was groomed with the intention of having him work alongside his mother. Alaric did as he was told and endured the all work no play lifestyle that was forced upon him. He was educated at home in line with standard schooling with the addition of being taught about people and how they work as well.

Alaric stayed with what his parents wanted for him because he accepted it as what he wanted as well. He grew up exposed to the side of the anomalous world where purchases and contracts were the focus. His teachings were private and he wasn't exposed to people very often until he was taught how to manipulate them. When he was a young adult he decided to become a negotiator and that he would use his mother's connection to get him into the field. It took time and practice, tutoring and sleepless nights. Eventually Alaric was hired by MC&D as a sales negotiator. By this time he had long stopped seeing people as anything but possibly useful to him because of how he was raised and taught. It made him very good at his job. Alaric negotiated for everything from minor sales to contracts for hitmen, anything they would let him go for.

Alaric was a well know negotiator by his 30's and he was often contracted out to well funded individuals for their negotiations. This is how he came into contact with a member of the Foundation. They took note of his skills and put in a recommendation for recruitment. After contacting him they spent and undisclosed amount of time negotiating his switching to the Foundation. He joined mostly because he had already been negotiating for MC&D for years. The Foundation might be able to bring new situations to him that he could overcome with his skill set.
