Sarcastic ✼ Gentle ✼ Expressionless ✼ Psychoanalytical ✼ Relaxed

To call Quillian "sarcastic" would be a harsh understatement. Nearly every word that comes out of his mouth is some form of snark, be it sarcastic agreement, teasing, or just general witty comments. You can always count on Quillian for a snappy one-liner--however, this isn't always a good thing. Though Qullian is a genuinely kind, caring person, he tends to be regarded as rude and almost frightening due to his constant biting words and lack of clear expressions.

They always say β€œactions speak louder than words”, and if one spends enough time around Quillian, they will begin to notice his actions speaking past the sarcastic words. He'll hold open doors, rescue baby birds who fell out of the nest, buy an ice cream for a small child, or help cheer up a girl crying on a park bench by buying her flowers...all with the same blank expression and quick quips. At the core of this is that Quillian loves people. He loves all kinds of peopleβ€”tall, short, skinny, fat, straight, gay, somewhere in between any of those, it doesn't matter. People and creatures of all kinds fascinate Quillian. It's why he decided to study psychology exclusivelyβ€”not because he genuinely believed it would land him any kind of work, but because he wanted to understand all the complexities of human beings so he could learn to accommodate them better.

There's another reason, though. They say many people go into psychology to fix their own problems, and this is the case for Quillian to a small extent. Though he's mostly perfectly content with who he is, he worries over how his lack of emotion and deadpan snark make people feel. It isn't from lack of trying; Quill tries to make a good first impression by attempting to analyze a person's posture, facial expression, and initial greeting to determine a good way to respond in his own special way, but he has a habit of accidentally pushing folks away or drawing a crowd who really IS just as rude and insecure as their habits would have you believe. Still, at the end of the day Quill doesn't see a need to fervently attempt to change himself. He is who he is, and he knows that his intentions and his heart are good even if it doesn't seem like it. That's enough for him.

"You're not the sharpest tool in the shed, are you?"

Quillian was given to a fairly average family, with two children already of their own and a perfectly stable mom and dad. He had been engineered to not express emotions the same way a normal human does (and by that I mean not at all), but this family found that oddly endearing and agreed to keep him. They were a good family, made up of good people, with nothing that made them stand out. The only thing that could be considered even slightly out of the ordinary was that this family was VERY sarcastic. Their mantra was β€œI only tease the ones I love”, and boy, did they love each other. This was obvious in the way they behaved together--snuggling on the couch to watch movies, helping each other with chores, giving hugs goodnightβ€”but the family's consistent use of satire and sarcasm to speak to each other drilled their mantra into Quillian's head. To this day, he believes that the more you like someone, the more sarcastic you should be, which has led to his constant use of it.

Quill raised a series of pets during his life (he's currently on a small kitten named Quirtsquip, an iguana named Quirtsquip, a beta fish named Quirtsquip, and an ant farm where every ant is named Quirtsquip. He wants to name his future child Quirtsquip.) During these exploits, Quillian observed how people behaved differently around each pet he had, and began to spark an interest in why people behaved so different from one another even when they were raised in the same home. Urged by his older brother Markus (who told him, β€œPsychology is totally the best way to get a job. Not like there are half a million other jerks who want to go into that field.”), Quill began to pursue a psychology-oriented career, and devoted his spare time to reading books on how people behaved.

Combine a home life that teaches snark is always the answer, a genetically-engineered lack of emotions, and a tendency to try to psychoanalyze people based on their behaviors, and you had created what could be considered the perfect storm of a scary human being. Quillian was avoided for the most part in all his schools because his odd, blank expression and biting words drove people away in the dozens. Those who managed to brave his cold demeanor and reach to the soft inside enjoyed his company, but those folks were so few and far-between that Quillian learned to enjoy being alone. He adapted himself to the lifestyle of an introvert, and came to look forward to having time by himself to read a book or watch a movie. This only served to further alienate him, but he didn't seem to mind; he always had his pets, at least, and a family who loved him.

Still, this lonesome lifestyle couldn't continue forever in a boy who valued people so much. Upon graduation from college, Quillian applied for medical school to pursue his psychology degree, hoping he would meet people in the field who were just as unusual as him and who shared his love of people. Thankfully, he did, in the form of Leonard Von Vital. Leonard was a pleasant man with a good sense of humor, and he entertained Quillian by getting into back-and-forth snark battles and quizzing him on what a person's facial cues and body postures meant about their current mood. Leonard's influence helped Quillian settle back into a feeling of comfort in his own skin, and he resumed life as normal. Leonard, being a couple years older than Quillian, graduated long before the younger man did, but the two friends couldn't stay apart forever.

Not long after Quillian began his third year of medical school, he received a letter form Leonard inviting him to coffee on Sunday. The handwriting was unmistakably his, and Quillian agreed in a heartbeat. He looked forward to catching up with the one friend he'd managed to keep.
