Lara Croft has a partner in crime who joins the British aristocrat in her latest adventure The Angel Of Darkness. His name is Kurtis Trent, and he will become Core Design's debut for a second playable character in a Tomb Raider adventure. The last remaining adept of an ancient and mystical order called the Lux Veritatis, Kurtis Trent will marry muscle and brawn with Lara's buoyant twin-pistolled approach to dispensing anything or anyone that stands in their way. Kurtis Trent will also carry his own trademark weapon - The Glaive, a razor sharp frisbee that can be thrown at enemies or maneuvered in flight by telekinetic powers. If this dual-character inclusion proves successful, Core Design will entertain the idea of releasing a spin-off videogame series starring Trent.

Kurtis Trent, Ex Legionnaire and adventurer, was born on June 26 1972 in Utah Salt Flats, USA. When he was only three years old, Kurtis was trained by his father Konstantin as a Lux Veritatis initiate, an ancient order now being ruthlessly hunted down by Eckhardt and the Cabal. At sixteen, Kurtis underwent his most intense stage of his Lux Veritatis initiation. Upon reaching nineteen, he disappeared and joined the Foreign Legion, changing his name to Trent. He stayed hidden within the Legion for five years but was constantly assaulted by bizarre events linked to the occult. It is here he adopts the nickname "Demon Hunter."

In 1996, Kurtis left the Foreign Legion and began freelancing with a variety of mercenary and semi-legal agencies under the direction of Marten Gunderson. He collects word from his father, but never sees him alive again. In 2001, Konstantin is murdered by Eckhardt. Spurred on by his death, Kurtis receives two talismanic items, the Periapt Shards and the terrifying Chirugai blade - a discus-like glaive made by the Ferilium. He then embarks on a mission to overthrow Eckhardt. Kurtis Trent crosses paths with Lara Croft, British archeologist and world renowned adventurer, and they join forces in Prague to combat the Cabal and Eckhardt.

The History Of Kurtis Trent: Demon Hunter is the first in a series of documents focusing on the characters from Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness.
