|Affiliation:||Remnants of Timaeus|
Aorum is a homunculus who has always been imbued with the purpose of "Excel". In other words, his meaning has been to become greater than others, become better than others, and show the way to his brethren who may not be blessed with such a kingly degree of life. However, instead of blindly following this calling, Aorum decided to channel his purpose to a completely different direction, breaking free of the chains of "destiny" prepared for him. He directed his skill of greatness to basketball, quickly becoming one of the top players in Athena Academy, and gaining the position of the team captain for Remnants of Timaeus. Now, he leads his fellow team-mates from victory to another, ensuring that his suffocating "prophecy" never dictates what or what not he should do. In other words, he is a rebel of his kind, not accepting the life that was prepared to him from the get-go. This has earned him the ire of Telesa, to the point where he or the Dormitory Head cannot stand being in the same room with each other. After all, the former thinks that she is a lapdog of their ancient creators, while the latter thinks he is squandering his gifts.
His position as a rising star has put him in odds against some other characters as well. For example, Lerato Burmaza of the Clock Tower and Granus Tuchstein of the Hybrids find him as their arch nemesis, due to the fact that he has done so much for the team of Timaeus despite not expanding any real effort at all. Then again, some other fellows, such as the captain of the Sea of Estray basketball team, Minuen Laso, have become good friends with him, commending his dedication to the sport. In other words, he is a very dividing figure amongst the sports groups of Athena Academy, but despite the evil looks he may get every once in a while, he strives on. After all, despite his serious personality, he does dream of one day achieving something through his own power, not through the power of his "purpose." You could call him an eternal daydreamer in that sense.
Where to Find: Aorum is more than often practicing for the next big game, so the gym is where he'll be usually found... during the practice times of the Timaeus team.
