V.S. Ramachandran is the only child of V.F. Ramachandran and his wife Elena Ramachandran. His mother was a librarian who taught V.S. how to appreciate knowledge, research, and organization and discipline. Nothing particularly interesting happened until he was in puberty when he started to see demons. It was not until college and graduate school where V.S. learned of magic and how to use his powers to summon demons. When he learned of the White Council and the wardens he grew cautious with his magic, fearing a demon would escape and he would meet with a warden, blade first.

This fear drove V.S. to follow his father to the bottle. But his mother’s disappointment and the still present sighting of demons lead to V.S. sobering. After cleaning up, V.S. opened a bookstore for the occult- the Flame of Knowledge. He befriended Balthazar and Veronika Blake through business contacts. The Flame of Knowledge has grown in reputation, even the white council members will seek books, tomes, scrolls, and other bits of lore that V.S. can get access to for his customers.

While running the shop, V.S. used his magic to get information from demons. Sometimes, a summoning is easier than weeks of research. He refuses to use a demon to kill, not only to protect himself from wardens, but because a demon that powerful is not something to summon lightly. He prefers weaker demons like small imps, better to see and not be found to gather information…….

My Backstory

Books and neat writing were key. This fountain pen was used to teach V.S. discipline. Discipline organizes, prepares, and finds. Organization runs the library well. This discipline grew with V.S. and as a reminder he still carries his mother’s fountain pen.

BACKGROUND

Trained to be a librarian, V.S. followed in his mother’s footsteps. Obscure occult books were a joy and challenge to find. This challenge became a bit of an obsession to learn and know where to find that knowledge.

GUEST STARRING: ANDROMEDA SPIRIDAKOS & PROFESSOR CHARLES FISHER

Three years ago Balthazar and Veronika Blake were attacked by a demon who killed its master and broke free. Having worked with them before. V.S. helped them by binding and dismissing Valhamarkem. To ensure that the demon was bound he contacted Prof Charles Fischer for assistance, a frequent customer of the Flame and wizard. During the binding Andromeda, the Victoria’s Secret Angel, heard commotion and entered. She knocked over a vase that trapped Balthazar for 10 years. The demon nearly broke free, but it was sent from this world.

THE STORY

THE STORY: MUSEUM KNIGHTS
STARRING: DAVID LYTON

While staying up late for inventory, David Lyton bolted into the Flame. I saw the suits of armor chasing him and created a wall of fire outside the store to buy us time. I saw the tablet, examined it, and told Lyton that he needed to return in Immediately. This tablet animated the museum exhibits, causing Lyton’s current problems.

STARRING: TERRI FOSTER

Terri Foster came to my store one day looking for research information on a case, why she needed occult knowledge, I didn’t ask. While helping her, I looked up Charles Fischer’s information and put Foster in contact with Fischer who could aid her more than I could once the research was over.
