The child of actors, Orlando showed signs of above-average athletic ability at a young age. He began moonlighting as an experimental test subject for various Wavyverse experiments, in exchange for ZIM sponsorship and life subsidies.
“Orlando de Blair. Star cyclist. You ride before you walk. Aspirational branch to be a poet. Son of hard working actors. They tell you: train till you die. One day you are favored by a Queen. She introduces you to her poetry-loving friends as long as you keep winning. She tells you: you can be a poet after you break a leg. ZIM selects you to participate in their Destiny BOB pilot program. BOB recommends you stage a leg injury at the Great Outback Championship Tour. You ignore BOB and place third. Your parents praise you. Queen promises to marry you when you place first. You train to exhaustion. You question if BOB knew this would happen. One day BOB develops a permission: you can be a poet without breaking yourself. You stop competing. Queen stops chasing you. You realize your parents like poetry too. You confirm your autonomy and arrive. You promise to buy yourself a room with a desk and a view.”
