Publicly Available Information

Doc Pulsar is a recent addition to the Denver Wards, and notably the first Tinker to be recruited into the Protectorate & Wards since Cylynx and Zipdash.

He has a scientist/doctor aesthetic. Only confirmed information on his powers is that he's a Tinker, with the leading theory being that he specializes in electronic devices.

PRT / Government Information

Costume Appearance

His costume is primarily a white and blue suit meant to evoke the image of a doctor or paramedic, with a white doctor’s coat over it and able to be removed if necessary.

The entire costume is insulated against electric current. The material is about as durable as Level II body armor but is lightweight to allow for easy movement.

His mask covers his head entirely except for the areas around his mouth, nose, and hair; over this mask he wears a visor that hides his eyes. If needed for medical attention, he has a surgical mask he can put on.

For combat-specific situations, he has a blue and white helmet with a sci-fi aesthetic.

Civilian Appearance

Lars is tall for his age, standing at about 5’10” with a willowy build, suited better for running rather than lifting. He weighs approximately 146 lbs.

He has short, golden blonde hair which is a strange balance between neat and messy; his eyes are blue, and his skin is pale. His nose is slightly hooked, faintly evoking the image of a bird.

He tends to dress in casual dress a lot, going for long-sleeved shirts and jeans most of the time. On cold days, he’ll go for the occasional turtleneck sweater. He also wears a pair of non-prescription glasses.


He enjoys getting to know people, but sometimes will get socially anxious. More often than not he finds it harder to relate to people outside of his own interests.

He’s firmly agnostic and does his best to respect most religions, preferring not to give Mormonism the time of day due to past bad experiences with it. He tends to always need to be doing something with his fingers.

In costume, he devotes himself to being a hero as much as he can, preferring to prioritize the safety and well-being of others before himself, though thankfully not to the point of self-sacrifice.

Parahuman Power

Doc Pulsar is a Tinker with a specialty focusing on electricity, electromagnetism, electrochemistry, electronic-based devices and robotics, electrical signals, etc. His specialty tends more towards small-scale weaponry and robotics, things that he is able to carry easily on his person without much difficulty.

Larger devices and creations are possibly for him, though they take much more time and effort to create due to having to keep track of so much and do plenty of troubleshooting.

Background & Trigger

Lars and his mom spent a lot of time moving around before eventually settling down in Denver, Lars himself hoping that he could make something of himself. He wanted to learn a lot from the schools available, and ended up signing up for several various electives to get as much as he could. The stimulation was admittedly nice, and he did learn plenty of things.

In the end, though, he realized that despite all this new jargon added to his knowledge, he hadn’t actually learned much of substance other than what he already knew. With no new skills to add to his repertoire, he had fallen short of his goal.

He didn’t really realize he’d triggered for a while, not until his mom had walked in on him disassembling several appliances to make a radar that could detect people based on ambient static electricity and electrical signals within nervous systems.

And from there… a new option opened itself up to Lars.

Subject is a Tinker specializing in electricity, with a primary focus on small-scale weaponry and robotics. However, subject's specialty is still extremely diverse and unrestricted, allowing for the subject to construct a large variety of devices despite previously stated preference and focus.
Per classification SOP.
Subject approached the Denver PRT with a request to join the Wards approximately 1-2 weeks after triggering, stating the delay being due to a desire to "provide sufficient proof as to his claims." Subject's dedication to, and attitude regarding, becoming a hero shows high potential.
