Monster Hunter International (WoD)
MHI Director of Operations
“The man was of average height and lean, with short-cropped, sandy blond hair, probably in his mid-forties. With no really remarkable features, he was not a memorable-looking guy, but emanated an old-school toughness when he strutted into the room, an attitude like a Bogart or a Cagney from the golden age of movies. A cigarette hung lazily from the corner of his mouth in clear violation of hospital rules.” – Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia
Earl Harbinger is a white man who looks like he’s in his mid-forties. He’s 6’1” tall, with a lean build and no visible scars. He has short-cropped, sandy blond hair and piercing, icy blue eyes. His face is plain and cleanshaven. He has no pinky on his left hand. In the field he wears his MHI body armor (with smiling devil face patch), but most of the time he wears boots, jeans, a shirt, and his leather bomber jacket. He frequently smokes cigarettes, and has an air of “old-school toughness” about him. He speaks with a more or less neutral accent, but when he gets angry his Southern twang becomes more pronounced.
President Raymond Shackleford III isn’t directly involved in MHI’s day to day operations anymore due to his age. Instead those responsibilities fall on the shoulders of the highly capable Earl Harbinger, the toughest Hunter you’re ever likely to meet. He makes the daily decisions necessary to keep the business running smoothly, and more importantly serves as MHI’s field commander when large numbers of Hunters assemble to deal with major supernatural threats. He’s gruff, doesn’t tolerate nonsense, and expects the highest degree of skill and professionalism from his Hunters. Pay attention to him and you might learn a thing or two.
