Adrian Elliot

I'm just curious.

0 · 2,412 views · located in Papoa Lake

a character in “Veritas Isle”, as played by Fauna

Description

Image
Name:
Dr. Adrian Elliot

Age:
20

Gender:
Male

Race:
Human

Appearance:
Adrian has a sligtly tanned complexion with short and straight blonde hair and narrow golden yellow eyes. He stands at around six feet and three inches tall, and has a tone muscular build, maintained by long morning runs.

Personality:
Adrian is quiet and calm, he seems to lack basic human emotions most of the time, despite this he makes friends with most people relatively easy because he's not quick to judge and remains polite and un-phased by most things. However, because he has been practicing medicine since he was a teenager he often forgets spacial boundaries, and has trouble trying not to pry into peoples lives as he is endlessly curious. He is very serious about his work and spends a good bit of his time buried in books about anatomy and medicine. Adrian is known for taking cat naps whenever possible to catch up on missed sleep.

History:
Adrian was born in a tiny village far from the land of carytopia, in another kingdom. Adrian didnt cry or babble as a baby, and he didnt start speaking until after he was three years old. Because of this, his parents surrendered him to a psychiatric facility, believing that there was something profoundly wrong with their child. And so Adrian grew up in the hospital, learning from the nurses and reading medical practice books they would allow him to read in his room. When Adrian was around eleven a man named Misha came and discharged him after an incident where a patient died in front of Adrian, and they couldnt figure it out. Adrian piped up and had figured out the cause of her death without getting within feet of the woman who died. The hospital called it a gift and contacted Misha's agency. Adrian has worked with Misha ever since, recently he was moved to Veritas City where he now continues his work and studies.

Adrian

Adrian had arrived in town a few days earlier after deciding to move after hearing of a young woman who was conducting reasearch on new medicines involving the use of dragon scales. He was endlessly curious about it and just couldnt keep it off of his mind. He had previously lived in the kingdom, in a city where there was a school for learning the art of medicine. He started studying there when he was a few years younger and now worked as a coroner. It wasnt hard to transfer to Veritas island for work, they seemed to be lacking in people who worked in the field that Adrian did. He set out from the Inn he was staying in and walked to the place people called the village. He was surprised to find out that the woman he was going to visit was only sixteen years old. He walked there using directions he had gotten from a customer of this Lorelei girl, so he wouldnt have to knock on every door there to find her. He walked up to what he understood to be her door and knocked, stepping back a little as he waited for an answer.

Lorelei had gotten her scales and said bye to her brother before she boiled the herbs and scales. She was sitting at her table,
drawing out a diagram of a certain creature when she heard the knock on her door. She placed her pencil down and opened the door. She looked up to the blond hair main standing in her door way. Her face was expressionless, "If you came for the dragon scale lotion I am out, but if you come tomorrow evening I should have some."

Adrian raised an eyebrow at the girl who opened the door. 'So this is the famous lorelei huh? Cold and expressionless, indeed, a proper scientist type' He thought to himself. " Oh no, I didnt come for any of that. My name is Adrian, I came to ask if I could study under your wing in regards to the medicinal properties of the scales. If you wouldnt mind of course. I heard about you from a colleague of mine. She says you've worked wonders with the scale infused products you've made so far. " Adrian spoke, obviosly enthusiastic about the subject. "So, how about it?" He said, tilting his head to the side slightly.

Lorelei blinked and shrugged, letting him in as she walked away and tippy toed to look in the pot. "What is it exactly that you do... Adrian?" She asked as she stir the pot. The water had turned a light pink, but she needed the water to be a dark blood red. It was going to take a while. She sighed and sat back at her table, studying the man before her.

"Oh I'm a doctor. Well sort of. My official job title is coroner. In short I'm the one they send bodies to, and I find out what caused death. I work with the violent crimes unit in the city" He said walking in and looking around. There were a lot of jars, some of which filled with things he recognized, others not so much. He turned around to see what Lorelei was doing. "What exactly do you do, then?" He asked as he looked into the pot as well.

Lorelei's eyes followed him till she got bored and went back to her diagram. "I research, experiment, make medicine. I am the village doctor. It seems the dragon scale lotion is a hit, though I am working on a serum for energy, but my lap rat has died so it seems... so... the water has to get blood red. It is going to be a while." She said all while not looking up. When she was done drawing it out she flipped to another page in her journal. "You seem kind of young to be poking dead bodies." She said for conversation. She didn't really know what to do with him. Her sister made her go out and learn every herb in the village and around the lake, but he was a doctor of sorts, so he had to know something.

Drian listened as she spoke, mentally filing away information a she did. He was surprised to hear that her lab rat had died, and of course curious as to how as well. "Your lab rat died did it, thats unfortunate. What happened?" He asked, genuine interest in his voice. "Kind of young huh? I could say the same about you. I started studying when i was about fourteen or so. Never had an interest in doing much of anything else so I graduated early. So now i'm practicing as a coroner for a while before theyll let me work on the more interesting things.I'm training to be a forensic anthropologist." He said softly. Most people thought it was a weird profession.

Lorelei looked up at him her face, again, expressionless and her voice serious. "He was eaten by a dragon. Can't say I care too much. He was a bad one." She listened to him go on about himself and hopped off her stool and reached up on one of her shelves. "Forensic Anthropologist sounds fun... I might have to try that sometime, right now I learning what the body can take and such... like medicine. I also work on animals and species...so... Anyway if you want to be under my wing, whatever that is, I assume you know your herb. I know you might know some species, but this guy... you won't. He is a Tellyski, this kind is only on this island and they live out back towards the dwarves land. They are super hard to find. I got lucky... and my lucky I mean I found it almost dead. I tried to nurse it back to health, but he was too long gone. I haven't dissected him yet because of family issues, but I would like you to find out what cause the poor thing to die." She gave him what he would need and sat across from him, pencil and journal in hand.

"Eaten by a dragon you say? How incredibly strange." Adrian muttered as he watche Lorelei look around on her shelves. Bringing out the body of some kind of species that Adrian was not familiar with and set out a few tools he would need to preform the autopsy on the creature. Adrian didnt waste any time and got right to it, his steady hand making clean and precise cuts through the layers of skin and muscle, pinning things back if they got in the way. There didnt appear to be any broken bones or fractures. No heavy bruising or internal bleeding either. He checked the creatures air way, no obstruction, but definitely blood. Which lead him to the lungs, he thoroughly examined the lungs, finding a type of spore material growing inside eventually deciding on a cause of death. "Cause of death is inhalation of the spores from the Inaki mushroom. The spores release when the mushroom is disturbed, sending them into this poor creatures lungs. When the spores hit the wet environment of the lungs they expanded, causing blood vessels to burst and blood to rush into the lungs. Poor thing couldnt cough up enough blood to keep breathing, essentially drowning in its own blood. A positively horrid way to go, you couldnt have done anything to save it i'm afraid." Adrian explained as he closed the critter up, carefully stitching it back together for sake of preservation of such a rare creature.

Lorelei smiled for the first time since he got there and wrote something down in her journal. "Correct. I didn't have to open him to find out. He was lying by the mushrooms when I found him. I did however ease the pain so he wouldn't feel anything before he passed. And speaking of passed... congratulations, you have passed my test. I will let you come and go as your please in my lab. If you are going to take anything, log it in the long over there by the door. If you bring something in... log it. I have perfected the lotion, but am working on other things with different dragon scales. My sister, Roshia, will be coming and going too. She is the pregnant one, if she sees you coming from my lab she will flip. Just tell her you are my boyfriend." She said nonchalantly as she put everything away.

"Ah the dreaded log book. I'm far too familiar with it to forget to log things, thats how it works at my job too. They dont much like it if you forget to log a corpse. " He said with a shrug. "Your sister is interested in your work as well is she? Why would she "flip" then, if I am here to learn? Wouldnt saying I'm your boyfriend make things worse. I might be a little old to be pretending to be your apparent boyfriend you know." He stood up and looked at some of the jars she had laying around, eventually seeing the scales. "Where do you get the scales from? You seem to have quite the supply, i'd hardly believe that you scavenged for all of these." He said looking them over.

Lorelei almost laughed, but she had great control over herself. "This sister is not, the one who taught me all I know has... gone... somewhere. No this one is pregnant. I liked to keep her on her toes. She is my favorite, though I know the tea I gave her should have healed whatever was causing those pains so early in the trimester... I rather her not hunt, but a good joke never killed anyone... or maybe the did. Adrian, you should know this, right?." She asked before turning around and seeing him look over the scales. "My drug dealer gets me what I need." She said emotionless, along with her emotionless face.

Adrian couldnt help but laugh at Loreleis joke about drug dealers. "You have a strainge sense of humor. It is most enjoyable." he said and picked up one of the scales, admiring its iridescent sheen before setting it exactly back in its place. "Your sister taught you the things you know? Perhaps shes on some journey chasing a breakthrough in modern medicine?" He said returning to a more serious tone. "Your sisters pains arent serious I hope. Growing a child inside your womb seem terrifying enough without unexpected abdominal pain"

Lorelei blinked. "Sure, if there is something in the ocean that has it." She went back to the pot an stirred. It was darker, but not dark enough. She sighed and took her normal seat. "I want to say it is caused by stress... but she is having twins... so I am keeping an eye on her. Her husband is doing the same. The tea I gave is all medical. I wouldn't know exactly how the whole body does its thing with the baby in it, but I remember my sister taking care of my mom when she was with my younger brother... she never had pain from what I remember. Have you ever dealt with pregnant women in your line of work? You did the do to get the babe?" She asked like it was a normal question.

Adrian thought for a minute, touching his fingertip to his lip. "Well occasionally we do, its not common though. They're pretty interesting though,I suppose mot people would think it was sad though.The changes that happen in a pregnant womans body is quite interesting. At one point I considered a career in obstetrics. But the dead are much quieter.." He said and then turned around to look at something. "Why would I do that? I have no reason currently to want children. Theres no point in the act of it otherwise. Though humanoids are the only species currently known, besides dolphins, that do it for pleasure. I never felt the need for it though." He said as if he were just repeating facts.

Lorelei nodded, agreeing with everything. "I tried watching two in the act... but she seemed to have called it off. I was bit sad and then my mother says it is wrong to 'watch' without permission. Which... I mean it was outside... did I really need it? It was for educational purposes." Lorelei climbed a stool and brought down a tin of dried herbs and oats, then got down and measured each before dumping them in a bowl and handing it to him. "Grind this until it is powder." She said and looked over the pot. It was almost time to take drain and add the water to the dusted oats and herbs.

"Well i mean..they WERE outside. They should do such things indoors if the dont want to be observed. And you could get all sorts of infections, not to mention bug bites if you dont dress appropriately while outside.No wonder she called it off. " Adrian shook his head at that whole situation. He took the mixture from her and ground it into a fine powder before handing it back to her. " So what are you making now?" He asked cocking his head to the side.

Lorelei took the bowl and stopped for a moment. Thinking back to that night. Unless she was getting bit a lot and by a monster bug, Lorelei doubted it was that. She came to and scooped the water and poured it into the water and stirred until it was cream like. "I am making the dragon scale lotion. It has to cool in the jars overnight before I can give them out." She placed the bowl down and got the jars and placed them on the table and began scooping the lotion into each jar.

"Oh really? What have the benefits from it been?" He asked watching her scoop the mixture into different jars. He looked around for a minute while she finished up jarring the lotion. He was still caught up trying to figure out why the couple she spoke of chose the woods. And why they stopped. The island didnt have a large population of bugs that bit people. 'perhaps a physical issue then?' he thought to himself, curious as ever. 'or psychological?' He asked himself, deciding he needed to learn more about the subject and the apparent emotions and physicality of it all.

"It toughens the skin. For wounds, it heals faster. It can work on animals too. I was lucky that it didn't change anyone's skin a different color." She laughed at the thought of Ofelia or Nasir being multicolored. She tightened the lids on the jars and stored them under a section of floorboard. There was a hole dug under there that kept things cool. She stood up and looked over at him. "You are thinking of something, spill." She said.

"Well I am always thinking, but okay..I was just pondering the worth of looking into building knowledge on the psychological aspect of coitus. It used to be common that couples would abstain from it until marriage. I wonder what changed. I keep wondering what caused the sudden halt for the woman as well. Bugs wouldnt have been an issue here on the island. So I began to become curious is all. And once I start wondering about something i dont stop until i get answers." He said still thinking about different factors in that situation.

Got quiet and thought about it for a moment. "Psychologically it could be a shift in morals, though... with this woman she looked scared. It could be first time jitters... I believe that is the term to be for the that nervous feeling." She tried to figure out if she could feel that? Lorelei went up to her new student and leaned closed to him. Just staring into his eyes. Lorelei waited a few moments before mentally checking she did not feel those jitters.

"Ah, first time jitters huh? I wonder what thats like." He said just before she leaned towards him. He didnt flinch even a centimeter, figuring she had wondered the same thing. He took the moment to study her features. "Did you know you have green flecks in your eyes? Thats a rare trait indeed." He said as if stating a fact. He didnt feel this jittery feeling she was talking about at all, and wondered if there was another factor they were missing that caused the jitters.

She nodded. "Though not so rare with my family. So I was seeing if I would get the those jitters... seems like there is a piece of the puzzle that I am missing. I know I get bit nervous when letting people try new medicine. Or using my own siblings as test rats... or when Roshia, my pregnant sister, is having problems with her pregnancy. I guess caring?" She blinked, thinking about it. She felt like that was wrong. Because she cared about a great many things and a lot she wasn't nervous about when normal responses would be. She decided to take notes on this in her journal.

Adrian nodded. "I was thinking that too. There were jitters, so there must be something we're missing. I think the jitters must be another kind of nervous feeling, instead of nerves because of caring for something. " He thought about it for a moment. "Ah, its going to bug me, maybe I'll figure it out some day.And then i'll be able to tell you the tale of the ever elusive jitters and why they happen" He said as if deciding it had become a personal goal.
