Docile and timid, a total
bullyable mousepushover, he tries very hard to excell at his tasks. A very patient person who tries to be understanding of everyone, be it though that the other person should snap at him. He does not put himself forward in any case unless it's something that he's sure that he has a solution to, or at least has some knowledge that can help. He tends to get awkward when embarrased or flustered, and would do something silly like trip over his own feet or knock something over when that happens. Emotions such as anger and jealousy are almost alien to him.
Though he memorizes a lot of of attack magic spells of varying degrees, he is too tender-hearted to actually use it to hurt anybody willingly, even if the opponent is about to squish him like a bug. Thus he tends to keep as far away as possible from such dangers, and aids by support/status ailment spells instead. Or maybe blow up some rocks instead for distraction..? If ever forced into physical exertion, he is quite useless at it; He could probably manage to swing a weapon for two minutes max before he gets tired out. His natural curiosity of various known (magical) creatures' strength/weaknesses is useful though, and he shares this freely with any who asks or needs it.
He knows a healing spell or two, but they're mostly minor ones. He CAN use attack magic, as long as the target isn't 'alive' QuQ
An orphan from the village of Senuv, his early childhood was spent in a small 'Home' with 5-6 other kids before being adopted by a middle-aged man who is a schoolteacher teaching at the local school. The man (Herius by name) suffered from a slight disability from a past accident, so he desired someone who could help him with the minor tasks around his house. He was happy with the boy he adopted, and soon grew to be fond of Orion like he was his own son. Herius taught the young Orion just as he taught his other pupils, and when he found out that the boy really did enjoy learning new things, he was delighted as well, and attempted to teach him the more advanced things than was normal for his age.
As Orion grew older, Herius realized that there are limits to his own knowledge, and he observed that the boy should be allowed the potential to go to a bigger institution of education than the local school, where he could expand his knowledge further. Calling in on a favor from an old Leiian acquaintance in La'Hansi who is now a professor in the largest University of Magic there, Herius arranged to send Orion there as a student. Orion hesitated to go at first, although intrigued at the prospect of learning more complex things, but he was concerned about Herius' ability to cope without him. His foster parent assured him that he would be fine, and only asked that the boy write often to him, telling news of his progress.
The professor with whom Herius had charged Orion to was eccentric as he was grumpy and irritable, and taking on the young lad as one of his assistants, proceeded to do as Herius had asked to 'teach him everything he should know'. Orion's shyness when he first came to the University was so extreme, that he was afraid to speak to anybody. The professor, determined to fix that particular problem, started to begin his 'training' by sending the boy in difficult, and at times even embarrassing tasks to complete. Though Orion was generally unhappy at having to perform such tasks, he did them nonetheless with blind obedience, and unknown to him they were actually for his own good. He did not hate the professor, for he doesn't seem to know how to truly 'hate' anybody but he tries to avoid an encounter with the old man as much as is remotely possible. He still prefers to hide away from society among piles of data on research of magic whenever possible, because physical exertion tires him very easily.. but thanks to the professor's efforts to draw him out more into society, this has become something of a rare thing by now.
Although the professor more or less bullies Orion a lot, down at heart he seems to secretly watch out for this boy. Is there a special reason for it, or is it just for his own amusement at watching the young one squirm....? Only time will tell..
