Ion – Rejected by Reality

ion - rejected by reality

Tonight, Ion has learned why it is not the smartest idea to wash down seven blueberry slushies with an equal amount of coke. Especially not right before bed, after a day on the beach fair. (editor’s note: clowns removed for the faint of heart.)

Ion – Growing Pains

ion - growing painsGrowing up isn’t easy and Ion is at a difficult age. Sometimes, he feels like an adult. On the other hand, he is not yet ready to let go of the treasures of his childhood. Luckily, he has a cosy spot to keep all things that have been and still are dear to him. Little trinkets he collected all over the world, while travelling with his parents.
Being an avid gamer, Ion also collects retro video games, and unlike many adult hoarders, he still enjoys playing them.

Allow me to introduce… Leon Hyde

leon hyde

Name: Leon 'Jekyll' Hyde
Age: 37
Born: London, England
Occupation: Surgeon

Meet Leon Hyde! Wait, Mister Hyde? No, Doctor Hyde. For obvious reasons also called Jekyll by some of his friends.

With an English Father and a French mother, Leon grew up bilingual. At the early age of six, he started to play the piano, and it would become one of his greatest passions in life. As a child, he was rather small and timid, which caused him to be the target of mockery more than once.

Today, Leon is no longer skinny, but his kind and gentle nature has not changed. However, life has left both his body and soul scarred, and he has learned to be hard and cold as steel if neccessary.

When he was 17, he lost his brother in a motorbike accident, he barely survived himself. Leon still walks with a limp and while his clothes cover the scars on his leg and hip, his beard cannot quite hide the one on his jaw.

Leon complied with his dying brother’s last wish and became a doctor instead of a professional pianist. Today he is known as a brilliant surgeon who loves his job. He spends his little spare time playing the piano, listening to classical music or reading. To keep in shape, he does weight lifting, goes swimming and plays golf.

OOC information:

Leon cleary is one of my favourite characters ever. He was only created recently, but “came to life” very quickly. He is a bit different from my other characters, not only due to the fact he is more mature. I love to play contradictory characters that have many facets to themselves.

Leon’s basic looks:

shape: my own
skin: Redgrave
hair: Dura (modified)
hairbase: Sadistic Hacker
eyes: TheAbyss
scars: my own
age tattoo: Lanevo
beard (tattoo): Emortal Concepts
beard: M-Aʀᴄ Mɪʀʀᴏʀ (modified)
