Because I've been wanting to do this for like, ages
Enjoy~ OPHION VAN DEMETER - AGE MEME:
for his reference sheet!
)5 - 10 years:
A very insecure and shy little boy because at home, his parents fight all the time. Develops his love and passion for astronomy and medicine very early. (Around this age, in fact.) Has difficulties making friends in kindergarten and elementary school because no-one shares his interests. Doesn't interact with the others much on his own accord, the teachers always have to push him a little to join group activities. Likes to read and has fun learning new things and studying which naturally results in good grades.11 - 15 years:
His mother finally divorces his father. It's not pretty though and he now enters a phase of rebellion, his grades drop drastically and he starts moving with a shady crowd with whom, however, he also doesn't interact much in general. He's retreating from people even more as the High School years pass, becoming an outsider and is often bullied, not only for that but also because the stress his parents' divorce causes him made him suffer from an ugly acne breakout. He vents his anger and frustration by self-harming excessively and by the age of 13, his entire body is covered in deep cuts. This is probably the worst time period of his life.16 - 19 years:
Comes to terms with the fact that he will be living with his single mother from now on. Finally gets a hold of his acne, gets rid of it and also manages to stop cutting. Develops a hard shell against bullying of any sort and starts to ignore it consequently, so his classmates eventually lose interest in him and finally leave him alone. He does develop sexual interests, just as any boy his age would, but because he's still considered an outsider, he doesn't get any of the girls. But is way too shy to talk to them anyways. Ends up focusing on his studies to get his grades back up and become top of the class. Makes a handful of okay-ish acquaintances he doesn't really like to call friends though because they basically just use him to get their homework done correctly, ergo: keeps keeping to himself.20 - 27 years:
Graduating from High School and entering the University of Krech'Ogh is a real blessing. Finally, he gets to meet people who share his interests, people he can talk about and discuss his interests with. Becomes generally more comfortable around people, even strangers, and finds his own (individual) style of clothes to suit him and also starts experimenting with blue hair dye. Makes quite a few real friends, amongst which a Drell called Neelam
and a young Kessian prince named Nua
who he first considers his final project for his doctoral studies' degree but then ends up feeling surprisingly close to. (Everything from here on out can be read on his reference sheet.)
That's Ophion's background story. I had a lot of fun with it, I'm even thinking of continuing this with maybe Blue as the next character, haha! ♫ Music: RUINS Theme from the Undertale OST
