Orin's Troublesome Adventures


Orin Law
Male
20
Rocketeer
Major, Minor || Weakness



Appearance: With rugged white hair and tired eyes bathed in crimson, Orin appears as an emotionally exhaused young man whose hardships seemingly reflect off his body. Slender and coming in at an average height of around 5'8", He wears dusty brown and tan colored clothing which appear to be in less than stellar shape. A large swathe of dark fabric, almost akin to a scarf and bordering on the description of a cape remains wrapped around his neck, a feather pinned onto it. This article of clothing, as well as the old brown cap that sits atop his head, were supposedly owned by his late father, and are unusual to be seen removed from his body. A small pack filled with essentials is concealed on his back.


Personality: Due to the circumstances of his history, Orin is very wary to open up or even interact with others, likely due to a childish fear that something will happen to them in a similiar manner to the events that took his father. He tends to push others away and adopt an attitude that potential companions could consider cold or even distant should they begin showing signs of interest in pursuing a friendship - however it's really just a coverup to hide how awkward and shy he is underneath. Should someone find themselves lucky enough to break through the mental walls the young man has emotionally set about him, they'll discover a friend who secretly aspires to live as selflessly and noble as the man who raised him. A soul who cares for his pokemon as his father cared for him...

Background: In his years before the disasters, Orin spent most of his childhood assisting his single father with the family business - a well-to-do hot air ballon company settled in the heart of Goldenrod City. Day in and day out, the father son duo would give rides to hopeful romantics, tourists, and anyone eager to view the urban skyline from a bird's eye view. But when that fateful day happened over a decade ago, the eager travellers and starry eyed couples were quickly replaced with screaming survivors and hopeless individuals separated from the ones they held dear. Orin's father jumped into action quickly, converting his business into a rescue that utilized the balloon to save those in danger of the floods and earthquakes to relocate them to safer ground. Orin begged his father to allow him along, and though the stalwart man initially refused, the pressure of having to help aid the lost and injured while simultaneously tending to the balloon became too much for the man and forced him to give in.

From then, Orin only remembers the pain and terror that the tornadoes brought forth. Before, the skies were safe. But on what was to be their final flight, tragedy struck. The balloon was ravaged by a terrible storm, thrown about like a ragdoll in the fist of a child's tantrum. It was dizzying, and the memory is a blur, but the last thing burned into Orin's mind is the image of his fathers lifeless body battered and beaten below his own. Somewhere in the cyclone, the old man had taken hold of Orin's body and shielded him from the fall - his own life sacrificed in exchange for the protection of his only son.

In the years after that Orin was largely grief striken, even as the wrath of nature subsided and humanity began adapting to the changes that befell the land, the pain caused was something that remained unchanged within the boy. He unsucessfully attempted to rebuild the business which his father had taken so much pride in, but with money and free time largely more scarce in the years directly after such large scale disaster, the demand for a leisurely balloon ride in this day and age was virtually nonexistant.

Now finding himself low on both money and hope, Orin has recently decided to begin a journey in an attempt to heal his heart. Believing that through a newfound companionship with Pokemon he'll find the calling in life he so desperately desires as well as free himself of the heartache caused by the tragedy that befell his father...
