Orin came from a half-blood father and a half-blood mother, both of which attended Hogwarts and both of which worked for the Ministry of Magic in low ranking administrative positions there. He had what he considers to be neither a wonderful, nor a poor childhood. From an early age, he was a serious child focused on simply learning as much as he could as often as he was able. There was nothing manic in the way he went about this but he could often be found devouring books of all types both of a magical sort as well as any books that were from the muggle side of things.
Knowledge of things was important to Orin.
Studies allowed him to learn no less than five different languages and learning dialects as well is something that interests him.
It was a surprise to his family when he was sorted into Slytherin; everyone save Orin. Orin had grown into a ferociously intelligent, determined young man that while very fond of books, also was keenly aware of the challenges of ignorance, both in himself as well as in those around him. More than anything else, Orin felt that ignorance was the single most contributing factor to what happened with Voldemort as well as a number of other problems in the past and currently in today’s wizarding society.
School was simply not a challenge for him…at least not challenging from an academic point of view. Socially…was a somewhat different matter but by third year, Orin had a tight group of Ravenclaw and Slytherin “friends”, although describing Orin as sociable or popular would be humourous at best.
As Orin proceeded through Hogwarts he began to show no small amount of skill at Arithmancy. To the point where he was simply doing all of the calculations and analysis in his head at seemingly a constant rate with everything and everyone around him.
It led him to having a very keen eye and understanding of a given situation at a given time and upon graduating, Orin was quickly inserted into a role as an Auror. Not exactly the type that goes in and apprehends criminals but of the sort that would arrive at a crime scene and apply his expertise in analysis and investigation, something of which he excelled at.
It was one case he had been assigned to that resulted in the criminal seeking Orin out and doing no small amount of bodily harm to Orin and nearly killed him. Going forward; upon healing, Orin put it upon himself to not only be capable mentally, but also physically and he started an intensive exercise regime that he continues to this very day.
Rumors surrounding Professor Melchior’s arrival as the new Arithmancy professor suggest that he was either let go as an Auror or possibly he’s being hidden from a criminal or criminals in order to keep him safe from retaliation for work he had done on a previous case.Likes:
