This time I've re-drawn his body shot and the mask headshot, mostly because I hadn't kept the .psd file with his original application like I did with Voyager and so, I had to draw everything again. No big deal, it wasn't that hard to do. Nothing changed in the bio but his parents' names, since now they are named and not some random dogs with no names Lol

PhysicianPersonality: [Curious] [Cowardly] [Positive/determinated] [Friendly/cheers up others] [Uneasy/awkward]
curious like a pup, Rory loves to learn new things and he loves it even more if he can share what he had learnt maybe with his family or with his closest friends, he usually has a way to tell things that makes you like them even if you don't because he uses such a passion that cannot be ignored. Even if he likes discovering new things, he has some phobias and fears that may freeze him, making him look like a whiny pup, when he's not; it's mostly his mother's fault that he became this way, since, after his father's death, she started to tell him how scary and dangerous was the world outside Eden, which is true, but there was no reason to scare a pup this way; but, even if he's scared, he'll do everything to try to get back to normality, since he knows those childish fear doesn't have to stop him. Apart this little flaw, Rory is a positive and determinated dog, friendly even with strangers, if he sees they're not infected or dangerous (of course) and he tries his best to give a hope or to cheer up someone depressed, as he did with his mother. If he knows he has to do something important in front of someone who's rather new to him or he has to show his abilities to dogs with a rank higher than his, he gets uneasy and, before completeing his work and knock out himself from the nervousness, it looks like he has no idea of what he's doing. Overall, he's a dog that will never betray you and, even if he's not the bravest warrior, he'll still try his best to protect the ones he cares for.History:
born as the only pup of the litter from a Physician, Adelee and a Heavy Scrapper, Theron. Since the beginning, he liked a lot his mother's job as a Physician, since the mixedbreed female used to tell him what she did during her day and he had always been fascinated by it. His father, a pure Anatolian Sheperd, was bitten during an incursion of Raiders when he was out with other Heavy Scrappers and Hawkers and died shortly after. Rory's mother had never been the same since then. She retired from her job to stay close to her son, to protect him from everything even if the Eden was a safe place. The Anatolian mix was even more decided to become like his mother, he wanted to avoid other dogs' deaths and he wanted to know why did his father end up such that way. His mother didn't approve his decision, she would have liked him more to be a Vendor, a Propagator or a Mask Maker but he didn't listen and, once he reached the age of 1 and he got his mask, he followed his dream to become a Physician. His mother barely talked to him after that but, slowly, he gained her interest and vitality back again and she kind of returned to me the mother he had always loved. He liked to be able to share his Physician experiences with her, getting some advices and suggestion that might help him in the future. He is aware of his phobias and nervousness problems but has never shared them with anyone. He is glad to be able to do his job though, without them stopping him.Strengths:
[Determination] [Size/strenght (although he never "tested" it)] [Speed (he has a slim body)] [Quick reflexes (due to his fears, like a bunny)]Flaws:
[Rarely stops talking if it's something he likes] [Stubborn] [Phobia of heights/small places] [Sometimes his awkwardness doesn't let him focus]Likes:
[Making his mother smile] [Sharing informations] [Eating] [Knowing new things] [Listening to what older dogs tell (tales)]Dislikes:
[Being judged negatively] [Raiders/infected dogs] [Eden dogs' deaths] [Being in the middle of attention] [Rude dogs] [Being useless] [Being sticked as a Mommas Boy]RP example:
Evening had come and Rory was heading to where he and his mother stayed. He wasn't tired but the idea of laying down with his eyes closed was appealing. It wasn't his body that was tired. He was young and energetic, he didn't do any run or anything tiring. No, sometimes he knew that it was his mind to be tired. His soul. Sometimes, seeing how a dog ended up after being infected really made him feel...tired. A dog that maybe you've seen while going to get some meat, while looking at what the vendors were showing and then, nothing was left of the dog. Nothing. A memory? Probably, but it would be a painful memory, kept back in the deepest parts of your mind, never shared.
But why was he complaining if he had chosen this job. Why was he complaining about seeing the devastated bodies of infected dogs. He knew what he was going through. He feared death and wanted to avoid it, not only for himself but for his friends, for his mother, for the Eden.
He did sworn that he would try to do all he could to stop it. He made that promise when the annunce of his father's death was told to the family. No dog deserved a death like that.
Rory shook his head when his mother's figure appeared and started to become bigger and bigger as he arrived. She knew that some thoughts were troubling him but everytime she asked him, he simply replied with a "No, it's nothing. I'm just tired." and, smiling, he would go back where he slept. There was no reason to worry his mother with those silly thoughts. Tonight was no difference.Relationships:
= Positive Acquaintance
= Good Friend
= Best Friend
= Cannot Live Without Rylynn
: probably one of the dogs that Rory respects and admires the most for his knowledge and for the fact of being wise. The young dog really enjoyes the Mapper's company, especially hearing stories about the Wastelands and the older days of Eden, courious as he is and he tries to not bother or annoy the black dog too much with his many questions.
: a newly met girl whom Rory already considers a friend, she says that she's not good with social skills but he likes talking with her, maybe because he is mostly the only one talking and she just listens to him, which Rory appreciates. The two also shares the same thoughts about the feeling of a family loss and are quite alike in that.
: their conversation hadn't been the happiest, due to a talk about wounds and the opinion about if it is worth living on such a devastated place, not to mention their parents' deaths and some bad wounds to heal but for Rory, the young Hawker is already a friend, since she needs someone who keeps her positive, to balance her pessimism. Rory knows she's someone that he can share his thoughts without being judged as the two are more similar than they thought about family and some life choices.
: the first dog with whom Rory really vented out all his fears and worrings about his mother. The Convoy Dog is a good listener in Rory's opinion and the two will most likely become friends, since even Mikhail has some problems to interact with other dogs but he had no problems on doing so with the young Physician. The two get along just fine.
: the Heavy Scrapper Mastiff was a friend of Rory's father and often visited when the Physician was a puppy, being seen as an uncle. He always tried to help Rory, after his father died and when he was about to get his current occupation but the two rarely saw each others when the Anatolian mix was accepted as Physician, due to job business. It was a hard hit to hear that Mammoth was killed by an infected dog in the Wastelands. Jetta
: Rory had just recently met the Akita Forger, giving her a hand to get back to the Forge after he noticed that she wasn't looking too well due to a serious lack of sleep. She doesn't look like a bad dog and the young Physician has probably found another friend. Kayden
: the young Physician still doesn't know what to think about the Panda German Sheperd. She looks like her mind is somewhere else and she isn't showing any kind of emotions, which is hard for Rory to understand if there is something wrong with the Gate Guard or if this is just her common behaviour.
: despite the young girl's attitude that brought out his darkest self, Rory depply loves Voyager as a sister and doesn't understand why she keeps acting around like if she was nothing good and so, he keeps telling her to believe in herself. Seeing how interested she was in the old Mapper's job and how happy she was when she was chosen as his apprentice made him proud, though he still has to tell her.
: met in a not pleasant situation, Hemera was the only one who helped Rory get back some stolen meat. The two began to talk and, thanks to a pair of goggles, a frienship formed between the two. Little they know about the rivalry that divided their fathers and their order to keep the two dogs separated. The young Physician finds himself to like the Technician's company. Is it only friendship or...is it something else? IT'S LOVE, I TELL YOU, TRUST ME C<
