a character in “Pioneers - The Search for a New Earth”, as played by Katryn


Zander is 6’ 2” and surprisingly built for the brainiac nerd he is. Though his muscles aren’t exceptionally large, they are visible, and attractive. His complexion is rather dark and has olive undertones and his hair is nearly black. The moment he smiles you are immediately entranced by his pearly whites. He has a strong brow and jaw that make him look very Man with a capital “m”. His short black hair permanently appears as though someone rubbed a balloon against his head and sent static electricity through it, as it stays standing up on end in a crazy shock. His overall physique is very swimmer-like; tall, long arms and legs, lean, athletic, but not extremely built up. He’s very aware of how attractive he is, and this only adds to his quirky ladies’ man demeanor. Normally he would wear the same torn up dark khaki Bermuda shorts and various t-shirts pretty well everyday, but now having only the plan white jumpsuit…well, he’s ecstatic. Now no one will notice when he wears the same thing three or four days in a row.


In general, Zander is just fun to be around. He is quirky and comical, charming and just plain likeable. He’s yet to meet someone who truly despises him. Though he does have his moments, he really is a good guy and has no longing to break any rules, but he’s by no means a goody-two-shoe. And amidst being kind and trying to bring out the best in others, it isn’t completely uncommon for Zander to dislike someone based on their attitude, or even just his own instincts; he’s kind, not fake. He loves science and math and is often caught working through chemistry problems in his spare time. Fun-loving and light-hearted though he is, his serious side shows through to those who push through to get to know him; who he really is. Though he takes relationships lightly, he takes love extremely seriously. He respects women, but that doesn’t keep him from being a man.


The only personal items Zander brought with him are his favorite 0.5 lead mechanical pencil, extra lead, and a thick pad of yellow lined paper for scientific equations.


Zander O’Roarke was born to an American couple, a surgeon and a CEO, living in Beijing, China. He was their only child and was practically raised by his Chinese nanny, his parents having hardly been around, kept away by their careers. It was the strong Chinese culture that his nanny enveloped him in that instilled in him the morals of being good and kind, and it was this also that put a wedge between himself and his peers when his parents decided to move back to the United States when he was 12. He felt lost in America. And he was severed from the only person who ever truly loved him; his nanny. He felt nothing like the hard-edged Americans in the intensely polluted city of Chicago. But slowly, after the culture shock and the anger and pain that came from the lost of a loved one and his home had time to dissipate, Zander realized that he was wrong about Americans. He realized they could be just as amiable, they just wore thicker shells, and he had to pierce through that exterior with the friendliness he had learned from the time of being a toddler. However, in the meantime, with his parents always gone and always being left unsupervised, Zander had more than enough time to himself. He developed a hobby. Chemistry. In school, he had the some of the highest marks in his class. When the Pioneer Program came out, his school counselor advised him to look into it. He realized he was a perfect fit for the program, and leapt for the opportunity. He would be doing what he loved and would even be around people from China. Zander had found his life’s goal and launched on the Pioneer I at age 18. He felt a completion he had never felt before. Only he wasn’t complete…the only thing missing from his life was love. His parents never showed any amount of cordiality toward him. He didn’t even know if they liked each other. His vow to himself was that one day he would find someone and love them. Love them the best he could, no matter what. Though he's in no rush for this to happen. He's young, he has time yet to have fun and young.

So begins...
