LOS ANGELES LEGION COMMANDER —
Soren can be as ruthless as he is charismatic. His unwavering devotion to the Vanguard and all they stand for is surpassed only by the Patriarch herself. This passion and his commendable service record lead him to the promotion of the leadership of the Vanguard's Los Angeles Branch.
No one is aware that Soren is an Empowered Human. He goes to great lengths to conceal this fact and ironically his ability aids to this camouflage. He possesses the unique ability to 'alter' his alter his physiology as a genetic level, simply put he can change his code.
It's actually an uncontrolled defense mechanism allowing his body to spontaneously change it's blood type, even it's DNA, which makes it impossible to ever get genetic evidence on the man.
Marksman, Sniper, Master of Akido, Electrical Engineering, Ballistics Training, Kenpo, Traditional Fencing, Gun-smithing, Artist (Painter), Pilot (Commercial Jet), Survival Training, Mountaineering and Free Climbing, Racing (Rally Driving), Masters Degree in Physics, World Chess Master.
Can speak, English, Danish, Swedish, some Norwegian, Russian, German, French and Spanish.
Soren is meticulous, and this is revealed by the way he dresses. The finest suits, polished shoes, everything perfect. Standing six foot one he has lean, wiry build. Dark hair, now peppered with streaks of iron grey often fall over one of his stormy blue eyes. Pale skinned, he bears the complexion common to the natives of his homeland of Denmark, as well as the distinct features.
Precise, calculating and brooding best describe the man. He rarely smiles and when he does, if it is not around someone he trusts, it usually over something puzzling if not inappropriate. For all his eccentricities, however, Soren is a strong leader. When duty calls there a very few who can compare to his speed of thought and tactical prowess.
LIKES: A passion of Soren's in painting. All his works are done with red paint and there are rumors that he makes the color himself by using the blood of metahumans. Completely, untrue but many such stories surround the man.
DISLIKES: Soren has a profound dislike for the open sea. He detests water but one would be mistaken thinking he fears it.
STRENGTHS: Soren simply fears very little and what he is apprehensive of does not hinder his decisions.
WEAKNESSES: A major flaw of Soren's is his relentless nature when it comes to eradicating thoe 'Altered' who do not attempt to maintain their Humanity or frivolously wield their magic. He will often waste extensive resources just to rid the world of one single creature rather than concentrating on the 'big picture'.
Soren often carries a black cane with a silver handle carved in the shape of a skull. It is actually a sword cane, containing a double edged blade of sterling silver. He also always carries some kind of hand gun and knife hidden somewhere on his person.
Soren was born in Denmark and came with his family to the States when he was fourteen years old. Repeated visits to his homeland kept him immersed in his ethnic culture and language but he is still pure West Virginian through and through.
Despite the opportunity Soren did not attend university. Possessed of an extremely high I.Q. he educated himself and concentrated on a career in law enforcement. In a very short time, he attained the rank of detective in the Huntington Police Department. A few years later he was invited to collaborate with the Bureau and after was offered a position as a 'profiler' in the F.B.I., which he accepted.
When the Resonance occurred, Soren joined the ranks of those who took up arms against those that had been transformed it what many down south believed were demons. He hunted down and killed several of the creatures to protect his home, acts that attracted the VANGUARD. Since then he proved himself again and again to arrive at his current rank.
