Dark arts/ Defense against the dark arts
As I said before I don´t have much of a backstory for him. But there are some things I sketched.
Soren was born quite "by accident", both Snape and Evelyn were over 40 and not thinking about having children(Snape particularly was nowhere near interested). After quite a bit of uncertainty and discomfort, Soren was welcomed and adored by his parents. Being an only child he was heaped with affection and high expectations. However his father made sure he had very strict limits and gave him lots of responsibilities from an early age (chores, studies etc). His stern upbringing steemed not only from Snape´s rigid and quite authoritarian personality, but also from the fear that, if he gave his son too much liberty, he might wind up raising a James Potter-type of brat.
As a result Soren is a very self-suficient and independent kid, with an intense (and almost crippling) need to prove himself worthy of his father´s pride and name. He is a talented potioneer and duelist but has a fascination with the dark arts that Snape desperatly tries to keep in check. He´s also rather talented at creating spells and charms.
Soren is in Slytherin (although the sorting hat almost placed him in Ravenclaw), where he is a precfet (later house boy) and quite popular with his house-mates (and with many from other houses) due to his assertive personality and charisma. He does have problems with others students, particularly Gryffindors. A lot of Gryffindor students (and some from other houses) still view Slytherin as "the house that spawned Voldermort and the death eaters", and Soren being Snape´s son and a talented student doesn´t sit well with many. That´s especially true for James Sirius Potter who often competes with Soren for the same awards and honors, and believes that Soren is always given free-rides for being Snape´s son. On the other hand Soren himself feels like the Gryffindor "get away with everything" while other houses (Slytherin in particluar) are held to more strict standards.
Soren´s eagerness to prove the rumors about his house and father are not true, and to show everyone Slytherins can be as worthy as any of the other students often causes him to go out of line with his competitiveness and to behave in a reckless or boastful manner(behaviours that his father frequently tries to repress, not always with sucess). He can also be quite spiteful when provoked (or when he thinks he´s being provoked), a personality trait Snape is rather dismayed to realize his son was inherited from him. But as for all the flaws, Soren is known to be fiercely protective of his friends and of younger students (particularly Slytherins). In addition to this generous disposition, he also has a great sense of humour and a very matter-of-factly manner of dealing with problems.
So there, this is Soren for those of you who wanted to know more
EDIT: Once again a huge "thank you!" to everyone who
