In a quick glance, Karl can be seen as a typical serious, studious and skilled Ravenclaw student. His eyebrows are sharply arched like a hook, which is a shared trait among the Von Fritz (he jokingly calls it "The Von Fritz Eyebrows"). This gives Karl an intimidating and demanding look even though he doesn't mean it. However, once you go beyond his looks and pay attention to his traits, Karl is actually a laidback and friendly person. Despite his overly friendly and talkative mouth, he seems to be quite the private person, rarely sharing personal things to people he feels he could confide with.
Albeit manifesting traits of a very skillful wizard, his interest lies in less important things and pranks. He is also a keen observer; however, he used to pay attention to trivial and awkward matters instead of putting his senses into good use.
Given the following traits, it wouldn't mean that Karl has no sense of priority. Despite being less than serious for most of the time, he has a strong sense of duty and will eagerly respond at times when he is needed.
Recently though, Karl's depression has taken a toll on his general personality albeit tentatively. He seems to be highly irritable and couldn't quite accommodate jokes like he used to. Although still approachable and sensible to talk to, there are certain words that easily puts him off the mood. He also developed a tendency to utilize his fiercest asset, the signature eyebrows, to throw off any conversation which he wouldn't want to entertain at the meantime.
The Von Fritz lineage originally came from Germany. However, Karlineas Von Fritz has met a woman in the Southern Coast of County Kerry. After quite some time, they got married and settled in Ireland permanently because the woman owned a huge farm. The farm ownership has been a family heritage ever since.
Karl was the fifth descendant of the Von Fritz and born from a normal household. He began showing great aptitude in wizardry at the age of 9. His grandfather was not on good terms with his father because his father fell in love with the peace of muggle life and became a district lawyer in London, completely abandoning wizardry. Since then, his mom and his grandfather have been the ones who supervised his wizardry training. At age eleven, he received an invitation to attend the Hogwarts School of Wizardry. He was sorted into Ravenclaw by the Sorting Hat, much to the pride of his family.
His first and second years were relatively uneventful. He refrained from doing anything that will get him in the spotlight. Karl's professors have noticed his talent especially with Charms, but Karl only truly rose to their expectations on his third year. He began to be at least more participative with campus events and even joined the Quidditch team. On his fourth year, he fell in love with a friend hailing from the house of Gryffindor but was greatly discouraged by the aggressive inquisition and immediate assumption of marriage by his family members about the girl, causing him to drop his pursuit. Falling into depression and haunted by countless painful memories, he left the Quidditch team before the Winter match and focused on his academics instead which dragged on to his fifth year, utilizing his talents and wit into their optimum potential.
His academic vigor fell short on his sixth year, claiming he'd rather grow potatoes on his feet rather than to achieve being "best". It might be primarily caused by his bitterness towards his grandfather, who doesn't only ignore his efforts but also criticize him harshly due to his grandfather's biased favor on his cousin Welner. His mediocre performance bit him back though, with recent happenings making him utterly useless, helpless and burdensome. He might not say it openly but he shares a deep guilt for Professor Desmarais untimely passing, he's good to mask his bitterness and sorrow with his comical façade after all.
His mishaps and shameful acts reached the Von Fritz household not long after the transpiration of events. Faced with his mother's fiendish rage and his grandfather's acrimonious scolding, Karl was spared no option by his family to disagree with Aunt Wilhelmina's offer to put him under her special training. His hellish training under the
wicked witch auror bore tremendous fruits but he still thinks what he went through was not worth it and refuses to disclose anything about it.
Events from the Quidditch World Cup made the seemingly inseparable cousins fall apart due to a grave misunderstanding and a broken promise. The given circumstances paved no time for Welner to explain things which left Karl to completely misunderstand things and think that Welner broke his promise he did not only swore to him but also to... her. These made Karl bitter and depressed, changing him into someone closed-off and stern.
Before the start of the next school year, Karl received a mysterious parcel which contained the latest broomstick model, Infinity Mark III. Receiving this gift made him think twice of going back to the Quidditch team...
The Von Fritz family is very strict on carrying on the family name to generations. Therefore, it is required to have at least one son in every family. Karl's father happened to be the 8th child and the only son of Karl's grandparents, earning him seven aunts on his father's side. The thought frightens Karl since he is the only son of the household. He always feels uneasy and awkward when reminded of his duties.
