Consul Andrinn Orin - Outstanding Personal Character Arc
by Captain Samuel Woolheater
- I nominate Andrinn Orin for the Outstanding Personal Character Award. Specifically for the recent post, "Goodbye Father - Part 2". I don't know why, in particular, but this recent post gave me pause. I think it is because of the way one can tell that Andrinn is dreading this reunion. The way that he says very little. The long takes and the non-verbal indications that he does not want to be there. But came anyway. The way he enters the room, closes the door and then turns around. Delaying the visual as long as possible. I don't know much about the relationship between them. But I can sense the anxiety, the dread and the pain that is to come. And I rather think Andrinn wishes he were anywhere else. And at the same time, at the contrary, wouldn't be anywhere else but here. For a person who is El-Aurian and a joined Trill, this kind of goodbye has to be challenging. Carrying all those old memories. All the loves, births, deaths and carrying it all around with oneself must be a heavy weight. And in this post, I get a sense of just how heavy it really is.
