Hello! It’s finally March, so hopefully the weather starts to turn more pleasant soon! It’s a frozen hellscape in New England but maybe this new Date or Die character profile can warm your soul…?
Orlok is quiet, intelligent, and prefers to keep to himself - he’s not one for making idle small talk. He only likes to chime in to conversations if he has something very important to say. He works as a wildlife biologist, specializing in studying various species of bats. Several years ago he was in a motorcycle accident that left him with intensive scarring and resulted in him losing a leg - Orlok was naturally a little shy before, but that only made it more difficult for him to approach people. While it’s hard for him to open up to others and he can put on a jaded, cold front to protect himself, he isn’t mean or cruel, and cares very deeply about people he considers friends. Can Hero melt his icy facade?
FUN FACTS ABOUT ORLOK:
He loves painting. Especially painting butterflies. You’ll never hear him admit it, but his favorite thing to do to pass the time at home is to watch some episodes of The Joy of Painting and follow along.
While he can be standoffish and aloof to other people, Orlok treats animals better than most people would probably treat human children. Bats cannot call you slurs.
As part of his job, he spends a lot of time traveling to new countries and living in research stations in various places. He loves traveling and the solitude living in isolated areas grants him.
Orlok’s nickname comes from the villain of the 1922 horror film Nosferatu, Count Orlok. The Host likes movies! He’s also an enormous asshole.
