I'm referring more to his looks. That aspect of him is kinda messy, disheveled, average. Not really superhero material. (Stereotype teen hardcore gamer in that era). But then he's magical, dangerous, and portrayed as someone who can handle himself around Lara. (The male gamer who really is special and who Lara is attracted to). Why else would CORE portrayed him with this type of appearance? On looks alone, he's not really superhero, badass material; but then he is because of his powers, his dark character, and he's dangerous.

Classic Lara's body-type was created to appeal to teen males and young men. Then, they created Kurtis who had physical elements of a lot of gamer-type males during the era.
