Consider the class of fields with Char(K)=0 and x^4+y^4=1 has only 4 solutions in K, we show that this class has a model companion, which we denote by curve-excluding fields. Curve-excluding fields provides (counter)examples to various questions. Model theoretically, they are model complete and TP_2. Field theoretically, they are not large and unbounded. We will discuss other aspects such as decidability of such fields. This is joint work with Will Johnson and Erik Walsberg.
