Callum graduated when he was 21. He spent some time travelling after leaving university. He then got a job as an archaeologist, working for Historic Scotland. After turning 25 he took a break from his job and travelled to the USA to do some volunteer archaeological work.

Hunter assets (what’s in the arsenal in the trunk of your car? Which could be something like this): trowel, shovel,

Choose one of the following scenarios and write—in character-- a (two-paragraph minimum) scene in which your character deals with the problem. Feel free to go any direction you like with this. Your application will not be invalidated even if you screw with canon or it is full of mechanical errors, but a good submission casts a favourable light on your application, so please try to provide a professional-looking writing sample.

* You have stumbled across a cursed artefact. It’s not attached to you yet, so you have options. You could destroy it, use it for its power and then destroy it before the curse gets you, or you could sell it. Which (if any) of these options do you choose?

* A poltergeist traps a small child in a refrigerator. You have almost finished the banishing ritual to expel the ‘geist, but before you finish, the child may suffocate. It you break the ritual now, your work will be lost. What do you do?

* A dear family member or friend has been acting weird lately. Maybe it’s locking himself away three days per month, complaining of weird nightmares, or sneaking around at night and returning smelling like blood and sulfur, but whatever it is, you’re sure something is very wrong. What do you do?

Callum scraped his trowel through the earth and felt his heart leap as something glinted up from the soil. He marked the position and then lifted the silver object from the ground. It was a ring, big and chunky, with a band of runes carved around it. Callum felt a sudden urge to put the ring on but some second instinct warned him against it. He studied the runes closer. They spoke of a curse.

Callum held the ring in his hand, unsure of what to do. Something about the ring unnerved him, although he was not usually one to believe in curses. The ring was destined for the museum, he reasoned with himself. But if there was a curse, could he bear to be responsible for the devastation it might cause. Callum gulped. Getting rid of the ring could lose him his job. That was better than people getting hurt, he thought. Callum got to his feet and casually walked away from the trench. There was a river there, fast flowing and deep. With one last look at the cursed ring he tossed it into the water.
