Biography

In the 21st century

When Fry travels back in time on 1 January, 2000 to get a fresh pizza, he creates a duplicate of himself. He himself actually gets frozen again, while his duplicate walks back to Panucci, where he asks to get the storage room above the pizzeria. He lives there for three years and visits his family, but he cannot get Leela out of his mind, especially since she has fallen for a man named Lars.

It is then he learns that a narwhal named Leelu won't eat fish due to her parents being gone. Fry thinks this is his purpose in life and he gets employed when he proves he can get Leelu to eat. He works there until 2010, where he is told that Leelu need to be set free. But Fry decides to follow after her with the help of Mr. Panucci' cousin. For two years they hunt narwhals, but it is not until 2012 that Fry finds the one he is looking for.

But as he travels back to shore with Leelu caught, a male narwhal follows them, and it soon becomes apparent that Leelu is in love with the narwhal, and it would best for Leelu if he let her go, so he does. He then arrives back at the New York Docks to return to his own life.

While in his house, Bender arrives and destroys the building he lives in. In the process Fry loses his hair, and his larynx is damaged by the smoke from the fire. As he looks in the mirror and the picture of Leela and Lars, he realises that he himself is Lars.

He rushes towards Applied Cryogenics, where he takes the tube with Michelle and sets it for 990 years, thus waking up in 3002.

In the 31st century

Almost a thousand years later, he gets employed at the Head Museum as a feeder. But he also does jar jobs for people who have had their body cut off. He works there until one day in 3007, the Planet Express crew arrives as Hermes' body and head has been separated. Lars immediately is attracted to and flirts with Leela, and Leela is flattered.

Soon they are dating, and while huddled together during Xmas, Lars asks the question for her hand in marriage. She accepts, and soon their wedding is thrown. But during the ceremony Hermes slips over the rope and the chandelier destroys his body and cuts his head off. Lars is reminded that he is a time paradox duplicate, and thus he himself is doomed. He calls off the wedding, leaving Leela heartbroken.

His life becomes mostly normal afterwards, until 31 December, 3007, where Fry invites him to Applied Cryogenics to meet Leela, who coldly rejects him. This is when Nudar suddenly arrives, having figured out that Lars has the time code as well. Lars, knowing he is doomed anyway, sacrifices himself to kill Nudar when he hugs him together onto Bender while he explodes from his Auto Destruct Sequence. It is at this moment that Leela, aghast by his sacrifice, discovers the time code and his identity.

At his funeral, his video will is played, explaining why he had to call off the wedding, and Leela forgives him. His body now rests at Orbiting Meadows.

Trivia

  • He must be almost 18 years older than Fry (biological), which is 51, as he manages to live for 12 years between New Years Day 2000 and 2012, and he manages to live for five or six years (3002-3007) until his death on New Years Eve 3007. Due to the cryotube clocks being slightly fast he might have reached the whole eighteen years. His age would be actually be 2040 given being frozen down twice.
  • His name may be a reference to Hermes' voice actor, Phil LaMarr, or possibly a pun (Lars Fillmore (Phil-More)).
