Seris Lothare is a human gifted and the adopted son of Allen Lenards. He is one of the main protagonists of LOTM: Dark Skies. He is also the biological son of Maria Lorthare, who died with him in her arms after giving birth to him in a Shadow prison during the first invasion on the Shadowrealm and a relative to Alex Lorthare, one of the first Gifted created by Solneer and the Ice God Mirzak. He is gifted in the art of cryomancy, which is also the opposite to his adoptive father's pyromancy. The only difference is that unlike most gifted, Seris couldn't tap into his abilities until he turned 20 years old, even then he still didn't know about them until the protectors find him. He makes it his mission to help the Protectors and the M.A bring down the Shadow and their new king Alkorin while also trying to find his missing adoptive father, even though he doesn't really respect his team and their allies all that much.
Seris wears a grey and red T-Shirt with a formal looking vest on top which is opened to reveal his shirt, blue denim jeans as well as grey and black tennis shoes. During battle, he wears advanced combat armor that comes equipped with a boost pack and grappling hook for added maneuverability. He wields no weapons, instead he realizes on using his Ice magic to create blades, axes and maces. When wounded, he can freeze over his wounds to slowly but quickly heal them. He has white hair as well due to the influence of his gift. He is also of British-American descent. He also has a sort of distrust for heroes, often responding to his team and the Knights in sarcastic responses, even picking fights with the more aggressive members of both teams. He eventually learns to respect his allies as The Third Shadow War progresses onward. After losing his arm to The Beast in Andrak's Pits, his ice powers replaced it with an icy blue arm formed from ice crystals.
Found by Allen Lenards in a Shadow prison in the year 5048, Seris Lorthare was raised by both Allen and Tempest Shadow during The Second Shadow War. During this time, the Shadow Mage Kalion managed to kidnap Seris and Nicole in an attempt to get the Protectors to relieve the schematics of Project Phantom to the Shadow. During his escape however, the Protectors caught up with him when he was killed by the Alpha, after the Protectors fought The Alpha off, Allen found Seris in an old Shadow outpost dating back to the first Shadow War. After he is saved, Allen decides to name Seris after his deceased brother Seris Lenards. After awhile, the final battle of the second Shadow War is fought, Delanis is defeated and Allen mysteriously disappears while Tempest takes Seris in and raises him as her own for Allen. 20 years later, Seris leaves home and begins to live his as a scoundrel working for Jabba the hutt. After a few successful missions, Seris's best friend and commander of Jabba's forces Daniel Sacro betrays him and leaves him behind during a failed bank heist, leading to Daniel shooting Seris and letting him get arrested. While at the station, Seris meets Tempest yet again alongside Lenius Fersion, leading to the two discovering Seris's ice magic. Lenius offers Seris a position in the Protectors, which Seris reluctantly agrees to.
Powers and skills
- Cryomancy - Seris is able to tap into his cryomantic abilities to freeze opponents, create obstacles and even create ice weapons when he requires it. Once his opponents are frozen, he causes them to vulnerable to instant death via shattering.
- Swordsmanship - While not possessing an actual melee weapon, Seris can manipulate ice in order to create swords, shields, maces and axes whenever he needs to use a weapon in melee combat.
- Ice Dragon Armor - If the need requires it, Seris is able to tap into the powers of the Ice Dragon God Mirzak and form the Ice Dragon Armor. This armor is extremely durable and protective, able to protect Seris from almost anything. When using this form, Seris practically becomes invincible and his power is increased drastically. However, the armor does drain a lot of his power, so he only uses it in extremely dire situations.
