Lars grew up knowing that in his blood was the rank of nobility. The Ghost Bear in him rejected the idea of his class of nobility, but his aptitude for politics recognized the potential of his blood could have in interstellar relations.
During his Trial of Position, Lars was able to defeat two opponents which gave him the rank of Star Commander where he was assigned to Alpha Galaxy. Due to Devlin Stone and his actions for peace within the Inner Sphere, Lars saw very little action and the fighting he did see was mostly just raids between the neighboring Clan Occupation Zones.
Due to being a descendent of Rasalhagian nobility and being newly Bloodnamed, Khan Dalia Bekker selected Lars to join her entourage to Terra to pay their respects at the funeral of Victor Steiner-Davion. It was at the funeral where Lars was able to shelve his warrior nature and bond with other nobles of the Inner Sphere on a personal level. It was due to these bonds that Lars fought against both the Capellans and the rebellious Senate before the Ghost Bears returned to the Rasalhague Dominion.
