II. PROFILE



Personality
arrogant | patient |organized | trusting | confident | dependable

Someone who always seems to know anything and everything, Oliver is somewhat careless and arrogant in his knowing. Always someone who gives off the air of being somehow better because he knows this or that, knows something that someone else may not know. He is a firm believer in the idea that knowledge is power, and is always trying to find the dirt in people's lives and keeping it, stored perhaps for some future use. He enjoys working people, working systems, digging around until he finds what he's looking. In turn, he's exceedingly patient and able to bide his time with people and himself for as long as he needs. Oliver is  able to put up with large amounts of chatter (in fact, he seems to absorb talk as if it was nothing at all), and willing to sort through the gibberish to distinguish the relevant information and white noise. Doesn't like to rush when he views something as important as he thinks it is better to do something thouroughly rather hastily. 

Oliver likes his space just like his mind -- organized and clearn, with clear cut lines and boundaries drawn between everything though this means he can be rather unflexible at times. Surprisingly, he himself is not at all cautious with said boundaries and despite his own knowing, easily gives his trust. When it comes to himself, he oversteps his own boundaries and is quick to put his own safety and wellbeing into the hands of others (a trust, perhaps, born out of his own arrogance). Most of the time, he's aware that he shouldn't be so easily dependent on someone without knowing quite enough about them but he finds himself constantly in such situations anyways. Despite this, he's sure of himself and his actions. Even if he doubts his own faith in other people, he doesn't often question or regret the choices he makes, and prides himself in being able to consistently follow through on his own promises.
likes: secrets, classical literature (preferably like 3000 pages and nobody actually reads except him), sorted files, trustworthiness, predictable behavior, coffee, lots of coffee, mindless chatter
dislikes: savoury food, sweets, messiness, radio silence, static noise, not knowing things
Strengths
Excellent memory - Eidetic audio memory. Tho his visual memory is also quite good, it's still well within normal ranges; he's enhanced both over time with recall techniques and practice.
Well balanced - All around adept in all fields, and aims to have a solid mastery on most skills that he attempts.
Reslient - Fairly good endurance, when it comes down to it. 

Weaknesses
Trusting - doesn't know how to control himself like a fool.
Master of none - Never learned to specialize, so it's fairly easy to take him down once you've figured out which area he's weakest at.
Grudges -  holds every betrayal close to him, made especially vicious by the fact that he never seems to forget anything. Surprisingly, really doesn't affect the way he still trusts people like a fool.

Background
Born to a wealthy family with a proud and large military family, Oliver had always known that one day he would end up serving in one way or another. After all, it's what his relative expects of him. His family were rather distant, in hindsight little more than a fuzzy memory of the time before, and as a result he latched easily on people who favored him attention and never really differentiated in this sense. In his youth, the constant barrage of noise around him, the people always talking and milling around gave him comfort, at least, in his lonliness; he grows accustomed to always havign somebody talking boldly and loudly around him, barking hasty orders, though perpetually never to him and as such he shunts himself off to the side -- grows accustom to always listening and keeping the things he hears to himself.

The invasion drastically alters his life as he becomes separated from everyone, one of the few lucky enough to survive the attack (if that's even the word for it), one of them sent off to become a unpaid laborer. He's not sure he missed them, per se, too young to really process everything that had happened; what he does remember is the crushing silence for the period after the separation. Shoved onto a labor ship to who knows where, the chatter and talk that he had become so accustomed to disappears. The quiet, the slow burning terror and oppression, is overwhelming in it's suffocation. After months of mind numbing silence, when it becomes unbearable, Oliver slowly starts to force himself to listen to the whispers aboard the ships he's carted onto, to the hushed talking and behind the doors discussion that had been so hidden before, to the small talk that passed around as he himself was transfered from labor ship to labor ship. He's lucky, he supposes, that he was never a subject of experimentation and escaped relatively unscathed from the ordeal. Slowly, he begins gathering his secrets again.

Years pass, without much use and though he's still listening, the whispers become more quiet and the hope dims until one day there's a rumor passed around. Someone spoke of rebellion on another ship (he didn't believe it at all but it was a quiet sort of hope), and the idea seems to fester around him, passed on through an increasingly unreliable telephone game, urging those still young enough and strong enough to rebel to fight in a revolution against the Monsoros because there will be war again, until an unexpected attack of the ship he had been on, destination unknown, offered him a chance at freedom and a different (better?) life.

Use the things he heard, his rescuers told him, and he could help save a galaxy. Inspired by ciruclating talk, perhaps too accepting of it, he accepts this offer.
