Hooks (Hooks are character flaws or weaknesses, essentially the opposite of Perks. Add 1 extra skill point if your character has a Hook. Starting character may take only one Hook.)
* Self-Conflict — Ever since he's been affected by the anomolous artifact that gave him his Pyromancer abilities, Sven has been… conflicted. As such he tries to prevent himself from using the ability whenever possible, and when he does, he feels like he's violating his own beliefs. -1 to pryomancer when used in non life or death situations.

History (Write a short blurb reminding us who your character is and how they got here.)
Sven's father was devoutly christian, who read to Sven about the book of Revelation every night. Sven himself is agnostic, but those stories taught him to expect damned odd, perhaps even demonic-seeming things. He caught the attention of the GOC, who recruited him for his almost fanatical devotion towards a 'Knights Templar' ideal, where a small band of brave men protect the world from otherwordly threats.
They taught him the basics, and he learned the rest.Unfortunately, they also indoctrinated him in their extremely negative and demonizing view of all anomolous objects.
Sven once attempted to burn down an unknown artifact found by the GOC 'in the wild'. Destruction was successful, but Sven was caught in close proximity to the artifact by falling debris. As such he should have been burned to death… but he survived- with some interesting changes. He kept this secret from the GOC, which was difficult to say the least.
Bad intel led to a doomed mission. In the chaos and confusion, Sven managed to lose all four of his teammates, all of whom are presumably dead. The memory is a blur, but he ended up coming to and seeking shelter in the Tamlin House.
What does your character fear?
The untangible, unknown things that go 'bump' in the night. Things he can't see and fight directly.
What are your character's goals?
To destroy every last SCP before they can cause undue harm to the world.
If your character could be an animal, which one would it be?
A mountain lion. He's rather romanticized them as the solitary guardians of lonely peaks and forbidding passages.
What is your character's dearest wish?
For a sense of normalcy and safety.A world were he knows what to expect and has a solid foundation of what is possible and what is not.
Why is your character here?
Because there are anomolous things here. Including the house. It must all be destroyed.
If your character had a tattoo, or another one, what would it be?
A tattoo of a flaming heart on his lower back. It's a little callow, but he had a very restricted and somber childhood and never really got to indulge himself in this way. Fires for purity and a heart to represent love and compassion.
If your character could have any superpower, what would it be?
The ability to destroy anomolous creations with a thought. It would make his job a lot easier.
What is your character's greatest weakness?
His general fear of the unknown. This usually vents itself in the form of flames and destruction of said unknown, but when this is impossible he feels vulnerable and scared… and this applies to his abilities of Pyromancy. He's afraid of it, and afraid of himself to some extent- how do you destroy something that is a part of your very being without destroying the self?
What is your character's greatest strength?
Sven always had a knack for destroying things. He sees everything through a lens of 'And How Do I Kill It?', which is very useful sometimes.
