Ben- Orlov was Loren's idea, and not a day goes by that I don't kick myself for not thinking of him first! :)

Loren- Actually, I got the idea for Orlov because there's a waiter at this Indian restaurant that acts eerily similar to Orlov. He's a skittish Nepalese guy, not a burly Russian, but we thought it'd be hilarious to make him that way.

One day, the Nepalese guy was being extra friendly, and he just kept refilling my water after every couple of sips I took. It became kind of irksome, because he started hanging around me with the pitcher, waiting for me to take a sip. Eventually, he asked if I wanted more water, and I said "No. Thank you." He looked at me for a few seconds before saying "No. You want some more." and refilled my glass. It was ridiculous! There, dear readers, is the origin of Orlov!

Orlov means so well, but the whole thing is amusing no matter how many times he does it :) A great characteristic!

thank you dennio! I'm a little dissapointed that he came out so 1-sided, but that was in old times. he'll always be this way, but I hope to explore his other sides too :floating:

Sorry, but Vasiljevich is not a name in common sense.It's more like father's name, that completes a surname (Orlov in this case) it's Russian-Ukrainian+_belarussian tradition. So, your Character has surname, and his father's name is Vasiliy (because you called him Vasiljevich) but, he actually has no first name.

indeed, thank you for your honesty! I came to realize this error FAR too late (of course, lol) and have since changed his name. I guess I forgot to update this ^^;

as of now his name is Boris Vasilevich Orlov [link] I hope thats right, I try to research a bit, but as an american it can be consuing, since our names are usually not really meant to mean anything :XD:

Orlov is juts so awesome! I have been pestering my editor to write his origin story for like a year, but he and I don't work together that much anymore, so it looks like I will do it instead :) I have the perfect ideas for him, heheheh :ninjaplot:

That's HILARIOUS! The story about the Nepalese guy!
So funny. I love getting character inspiration from events or people. Especially when you have a story about it!
