Complications:
Obsession - Balatar has a very strong hatred of evil and Black Magic.
Responsibility - As his number of allies grows, Hans is finding it harder and harder to figure out which can be trusted and relied upon.
Relationships - Balatar and Artemis have begun an occasional physical relationship. Hans hasn't figured out if they are "just" Monster-Hunters-With-Benefits or something more than that. He is still close with his mentor, and has taken on a set of pupils of his own: the reluctant Damon Flagg and the technology-centric GUI.
Enemy/Mistaken Identity - Balatar resembles and is the unknown grandson of Kristoffer, Son of Mordred.
Stay off the Sidewalks - Hans Baker-Schmidt never learned to drive at all. Balatar cannot make routine Vehicles checks, and must make a Vehicles check even under routine conditions.
Vulnerability - Balatar's Spell of Protection is magic, and, as such, it can be countered by certain other magicks. Certain magical attacks might, for example, gain a +5 damage against Balatar, or the Protection may be Unreliable (roll), or any of a number of other possibilities, depending on the precise circumstance.

Background: While the general public was never made aware of it, Adolf Hitler's fascination with the occult was so deep that he actually recruited a mage to be his sorcerous advisor. Curiously, this mage was English, although he did desire to see England fall to Germany. This mage, while staying at the German chancellery took a perverse liking to one of the young women the Nazis had pressed into servitude. He forced himself on her in 1944. Had he ever learned he had impregnated her he would have had her killed. The arrival of the Allied forces in Germany gave him other things to worry about before he or she learned of her condition. The servant girl escaped and was found by Allied forces.

Balatar in his current 'supersuit' As luck would have it, she and a British soldier fell in love. When her delicate condition was discovered, he married her, assuming the child she carried was his. A career soldier, he stayed in West Germany through the Occupation, and then endeavoured to stay. Their daughter grew up having a fairly normal, healthy childhood, never knowing that her true father was a 1300 year old sorcerer from England.

Eventually, she married, and thirty years ago her son, Hans, was born. Hans was born with strong magic potential, inherited from his grandfather and his grandfather's mother before him. Growing up, many strange and yet beneficial events happened to or around Hans, who never realised it was his unconscious. While he was in college, he was approached by a man named Frederick Hall (known to some as Professor Möbius) who offered to teach Hans how to control his magic.

As the time of him finishing his training neared, he was one of a handful of novice adventurers (Fantasia, Alistair Munroe, Mr. Menagerie, Quadtron, and D'stani) who were brought to der Nacht. After escaping he went and completed his training. He then fell in with another group, one that hates evil magic the way he does.


After exterminating a lot of evil monsters, Balatar discovered that one of his allies, Damon Flagg, was the der Nacht-Earth link. After severing that link, Balatar brought Flagg to Möbius for training. Möbius made Balatar promise to start learning how to train. Having returned to Möbius for training on training, he and GUI have restructured how their group does things. Balatar's response to GUI's new name for the team, BADASS, was to start referring to the 'Reservists' as 'GUI's Reserve Army Battling Against Supernatural Sociopaths'.

Balatar is created, designed and played by Ken Hallaron. His second supersuit was designed by Matt Hallaron.
