Name: Lorn Turk
Build: Ned Flanders.. aka, you think he's wimpy but he's muscular
Candy Type: Big Turk
Push Over: He is unfortunately the easiest to manipulate between he and his other 4 siblings. He just doesn't like confrontation, so he'll 9 times out of 10 be the first to bend. Since moving to Domoko City, however, he has gotten a little better with telling people no. Still, it is something that he struggles with because he doesn't like to disappoint people.
Type A: Likes his things a certain way, and if it's out of order he'll start getting a bit anxious. He used to be really bad about it, and had OCD where his day schedule was broken down by every 30 minutes. Now he can just get a gist of what the day will go like and be just fine. If he plans to go anywhere though, he'll always call/text to confirm in advance.
Ambitious: His is really hard working, and gets stir crazy from sitting around the house for too long. If he's not at work, he'll find some way to busy himself and still be productive that day.
Humble: No matter what kind of success he has, he's not one to flaunt that in other people's faces. He doesn't think he's better than anyone, and he always treats people as he'd want to be treated.
Charming: Kind of goes along with humble. He is a southern gentleman... minus the southern part. Chivilry is not dead with this one.
Actor: He is both a television actor and a stunt actor.
Born and raised in the Ice Cream Mountains. As a young child Lorn always had an infatuation with television. Every Saturday morning his favorite show would come on. There was a superhero that he adored, and he wanted to be on t.v. like him. His mother agreed and took him to many casting calls, but the directors never received him well. They always said he didn't have the "right look." He was too tall, weird looking, strange build, had distracting eyes, or just flat out had no talent at all.
Whatever heart crushing physical insult you could think of, Lorn has heard them all. As harsh as it may have been, it in a sense built up is tolerance for ugliness. He decided in middle school that he wouldn't try to get into the movies anymore, at least, not while his resume was so short. So he'd stick to plays at his school, community theater, and small local commercials. He would start filming small action videos with his friends, and that's when he really got into stunt work. He thought back to the superhero from his childhood, and used that as a reference for his stunts. Needless to say, there were a lot of broken bones, scrapes, and bruises.
When he reached 10th grade, the decided it was time to try his hand again. His mother was sick of him getting turned down because she didn't want him chasing a pipe dream his whole life. It wasn't that she didn't believe in him. She was just afraid that the directors would never see in her son what she saw in him. So he made a deal with her. He'd do home schooling and acting, but if he wasn't picked up by the time he turned 18, than he would go to med school. This was an offer that his mother could live with.
Just as before, Lorn was turned down for the same reasons. His 18th birthday crept up on him a lot faster than thought it would. Being a man of his word, he put down the camera and picked up the stethoscope. Maybe some people just aren't meant to live their dreams, he thought. Although he still wanted to act more than anything, med school was not something he half-assed. If he was going to become a doctor, he was going to be the best.
One day, when he was walking back to his dorm on campus, he saw a flier for an open casting call. They were casting actors for a new television show. It was something that didn't phase him at this point. Acting was a thing of the past. It was no longer a part of his life. He found it very surprising how little interest he had in this open casting. The very next week he went to visit is brother Leigh in Domoko city. His brother told him that in all of those years that he got rejected for roles, he still seemed happier than he did with a white lab coat on. He was right, but Lorn had to stay true to his word. Knowing that he would never do it himself, his brother dropped him off at an open casting not too far from where he lived. He said, "If you don't audition, don't come back to my house."
He was hesitant to try again, but he did. He went in and gave it his all as he auditioned for the lead role on a new prime time television show. No, is wasn't a right fit. He didn't look like the protagonist they wanted. Lorn wasn't surprised to get rejected again. In fact, it was self fulfilling prophecy at this point. He just wanted to go back to Ice Cream Mountain and never think about acting again.
When he was at the airport getting ready to board in the next few minutes, he got a phone call that would ultimately change his life. He wasn't right for the protagonist role that he auditioned for, but he was perfect as the villain, and they wanted him on their show. Not only did he have the look and the talent, but he was one of the few that would be able to perform their own stunts. He was floored and didn't know what to do. Get on the plane, or take the offer. The risk was great, because there was no guarantee that the show would be picked up. He didn't want to drop out of med school on a hunch, but he did.
It was a decision that he doesn't regret. He moved in with his brother for a while before he got on his feet and earned his first big check from the network. The show is currently on its second season, and although it happened quite some time ago, he still can't believe what his life has become and how it happened.

Yawp! They need to have that good ol' chemistry though. Must be 18+
Sidenote: I'll probably be more prone to shipping him with someone who doesn't already have a ship.
Obviously you can't force chemistry though, so whoever is vibing is viiiiibing.
