Lium Zachary Griffin
Font color: Green
He has really bland eyes actually. They’re like a well… Poop brown with a round shape and short thick eyelashes.
[But Lium, why don't you just cut it?
Because screw you, that's why.]
Short for his age Lium stopped growing around 5’6” with abnormally long and skinny arms with huge hands and feet but shorter legs. He’s uncoordinated and awkward which probably has a lot to do with his disproportionate leg to foot ratio and his skin is very pale from spending most of his time indoors. He has a huge head, thick unruly hair, round plump face with thin lips, crazy straight white teeth, large bushy eyebrows, round eyes, and a nose that slightly squishes down.
His favorite color is forest green, a love he developed when his family traveled through the Arrowroot woods after he grew up his entire life in a desert. He has a lot of green shirts and his favorite (and only) pair of sneakers are a worn down green color. He mostly sticks to long jeans or khaki pants and will sometimes be seen in his over-sized plain gray hoodie.
If you wanted to describe Lium in one breath it would have to be that he is a downright, over the top, to the bone, N.E.R.D. The Griffon family believed in education first, pokemon later. They didn’t even send their children to pokemon school, oh no, they went to full on kill-me-now classes at a private school located just down the street from their house in Olida town. Lium took his time maturing into a young man, making sure that as he aged he acted his age (and sometimes younger) and didn’t try to grow up faster than he should.
He lived in the shadow of his older brother, Landon, who was four years his senior his entire life which was probably a contributing factor to his behavior all throughout school. The two were close as could be as toddlers but as the years piled on and puberty started to hit Landon became the talk of the town. Star of just about every sport the school and local competitive divisions offered, straight A student, always Mr. Perfect at home, and of course attracted all of the chicks. From the moment Lium heard his parents utter the words ‘why can’t you be more like your brother’ he pretty much gave up in every subject his brother excelled at (which was everything) and locked himself away in his room during any free moment at home.
Saying so, Lium is a smart boy but since he felt like he could never measure up he would scribble down his name, sleep through the entire class, and end up turning in almost every assignment blank. He stuck to video games and reading books and rarely ventured out to take a stroll around town to let off some of his steam. Lium is quiet with a shy attitude that radiates how awkward and creepy he can be in any social interaction.
three years old.
Landon and Lium stood gaping at the new house presented in front of them. It wasn’t much but to the seven and three year old the new home was a whole package of adventures just waiting to be unwrapped. It was a cute white structure with a small porch and light blue shutters covering the two windows facing into the living room. The front yard was a patch of pathetic excuse for grass that had obviously been neglected surrounded by a waist high (to a big grown up person like mommy and daddy) white picket fence. Just to the right of the fence Marcus and Mary-Ann Griffin stood grinning at their sons like they had just won the lottery. Slinging a fine toned arm around his wife Marcus chuckled,
“So? What do you think boys? This little treasure is all ours. Much better than the apartment wouldn’t you say?”
Landon broke the stillness of the two brothers first, leaving their perch at the end of the sidewalk and launching himself into his father’s arms, who had to adjust himself accordingly to untangle himself from Mary-Ann and swoop down to gather up the boy. Lium took a little bit longer though; he was slightly confused as to what they were saying to him. Where was the little boy that lived a house down from them? Didn’t he come with too? And why was it so hot here? The toddler blinked his large brown eyes a few more times and smiled as Mary-Ann almost floated over to him and gracefully lifted him into her arms and cradled the younger boy.
“You’re going to love it here baby boy. I promise.” She cooed, giving him a reassuring smile and turned on her heel to follow her husband and the jumping Landon up the steps and into their new home.
six years old.
The heated summer’s breeze swept the curtains aside as the gust of wind passed through the living rooms front windows. Lium reached up to brush back the lock of hair the breeze had stirred with a pouted lip as it obstructed his vision of the Lego structure he was tinkering with on the carpeted floor. The faint laughter of Landon and his few friends from around the neighborhood could be heard through the open frames but Lium tried to drown it out as much as possible. The boys at school loved Landon, flocked to him really, while the ones in Lium’s grade just made fun of him and called him names. The boys in the neighborhood never wanted to play with Lium, and whenever he tried asking them they would stand there and scoff as Landon just laughed along with them and the group scampered away to enjoy the summer days.
Humming a small tune he had heard on the tv this morning Lium held his finished project up to eye level and smiled. He liked playing with Legos, he was good at it he felt. Like he could take on any six year old that dared question his Lego building ability and smash leave them far behind in the dust, just like Landon and all of his new stupid friends. Once he was finished admiring his new creation he carefully took it apart square by square and scooped the various colored pieces back into its box. He wondered what momma was doing right now, since she was a preschool teacher she had the summer off just like them and he loved it. Even though daddy had to work out at the fire station all day he didn’t mind spending time with momma sometimes even cooking, not even Landon could interrupt that. Wandering idly into the kitchen his abnormally bushy eyebrows knitted together with concern seeing that his mother was in fact not in here. Well, it was kind of early in the afternoon maybe she had resorted to folding some clothes, he thought, changing his path to head towards their parents room at the end of the hall.
Staring down at his laces as he made his way down the hallway he stopped abruptly next to the door holding his father’s study. The room was usually kept shut and locked but for some reason it was cracked just a bit so the light within made a streak across the carpet. He knew he shouldn’t be nosy, as his mother would say, but the curiosity of his six year old mind took over and he gently pushed the door the rest of the way open to reveal a small room holding a few book shelves, a fluffy recliner, and a desk slightly cluttered with important looking papers. He took in the room with all of the awe he could muster, taking a few steps into the room Lium naturally gravitated towards the book shelves teaching out his long fingers to brush across the different colored spines and inhaled sharply. He gently gripped one book by the spine and tugged at it, feeling it slide out from its cozy resting spot and let it rest on his outstretched palms as he examined the front cover.
It was black with a picture of a single bird soaring through skies as blue as any he had ever seen. Lium was in first grade so of course he knew his alphabet and he knew how to read but his short attention span and general lack of not caring caused him to skip over the big bold letters displaying BIRDS OF KUHRE and flipped it open to the first page, then second, then the third. A huge grin spread over his face as he took in picture after picture of beautifully colored birds decorating each page, not bothering with the descriptions littering the bottom of each page.
“Lium, where are you?” Mary-Ann’s voice called from the living room. With the sudden disruption Lium snapped the book shut and clutched the book to his chest. He wasn’t supposed to be in here, let alone messing with daddy’s books. But he hadn’t had his fill of the book with all of the pretty birds; no way could he give it up. Taking one last glance around the room he gripped the book tight and bolted out of the room, shutting the door as quietly as he could and took off to his room to hide the treasure he was so fascinated with.
ten years old.
“Lium, hurry up darling we’re going to be late for Landon’s game.” The motherly tone echoed down the hall to his room. The ten year old sat studiously at his desk flipping through a few bird book she had acquired over the years, tracing a loving fingers over the black book he found in the office oh so many years ago.
“Coming.” He shouted in a bored tone, heaving a sigh and shutting the book he was currently observing in a neat and orderly fashion. His most time consuming and prized possessions. “Be there in a sec!”
Scrambling to shove on one sneaker after another he dashed through the kitchen to grab a stack of crackers and made it into their baby blue minivan in record time.
