HISTORY OF KURTIS
TRENT: DEMON HUNTER
Copyright 2003 www.tombraiderchronicles.com
[ March 12th 2003 ]
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.
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."
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
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.
