More often than not, that’ll include his leg coming up and down, or simply fumbling together with his palms when he’s nervous. Due to his lessened ADHD, he performs worse in battle.
Dyslexia – Harvey’s dyslexia is extremely bothersome to him. He can hardly learn something, and more often than not simply ditches any try to take action. Sometimes, he has a tough time studying bigger phrases, that are incomprehensible to him. Smaller phrases are manageable, however nonetheless tough.
Bronchial asthma – Harvey’s bronchial asthma has by no means been too intrusive within the issues he does. He isn’t tremendous lively, so the one time it actually flares up is in fairly uncommon circumstances. Although, he’s in all probability going to should get extra lively these days…
Automobile Illness – Being in any fast-paced car typically may have Harvey act up. Vehicles particularly. It’s actually unhealthy, and never fairly.
Hm? Oh Harvey? Simply look out for the massive dude sulking within the nook with the sweater.
Harvey stands out very distinctively in a crowd, particularly in comparison with the opposite campers, as he seems a bit older than his precise age. Now whereas his total look is relatively plain; brown curly hair, brown drained eyes, a lightweight beard and mustache (it’s extra stubble if something), tan pores and skin… to essentially distinction his easy look, he’s a literal hulking beast of a person, with broad shoulders, massive chest, beefy arms, and standing at a tall 6 foot 2 inches. Regardless of his very cumbersome body, he wouldn’t dare harm anybody, no matter which may make Harvey appear very intimidating. And to then distinction his relatively threatening measurement, he wears relatively unthreatening garments. Day by day, he sports activities inexperienced sweaters over white costume shirts, washed out blue denims, a pair of mangled sneakers, and a few massive spherical black rimmed glasses.
He’s hardly seen with out his inhaler. He barely makes use of it, however he by no means is aware of, and he’s extra assured understanding it’s on him. In addition to that, he at all times retains his stiletto switchblade on him, which has seen higher days. It’s extra of a novelty actually, he doesn’t use it in fight. It was a present from his foster brother, and it’s relatively pricey to him for a number of causes.
Harvey, on the surface is a really stoic, quiet man. You’ll hardly see him specific himself in any methods greater than a easy, quaint smile. He’s well mannered, monotone, and usually an excellent listener. He’s additionally a person of only a few phrases, solely ever actually talking when spoken to, a mentality branded into him since childhood. Harvey is extremely caring, and typically even clingy to ones he loves, contemplating how little individuals have cared for him in his life. Regardless of his visibly stoic nature, there are a pair issues that do tick him off. Extraordinarily enthusiastic individuals are certainly one of his greatest pet peeves. Different such issues will annoy him too, however more often than not it’s nothing tremendous bothersome.
On the within, Harvey’s a damaged, scared, emotional child with an excessive amount of to open up about, and 0 braveness to take action. He’s had little or no buddies, a relatively disagreeable childhood, and extremely self deprecating ideas about himself that you simply’d by no means discover out about. Harvey’s extra involved over the well-being of his buddies extra so than his personal. And… he’s okay with that. He dislikes burdening individuals together with his points, he merely makes his greatest effort to disregard them.
Harvey is a really seclusive child. He hardly stands up for himself, nor does he open up about his issues. He lies to himself, to make him really feel higher and preserve others from worrying. He’s carried out this ever since childhood, and it’s solely gotten worse as time’s gone on. As a result of his lack of standing up for himself, he is simpler to govern, and may crumble fairly simply. Now whereas a a lot lesser flaw, Harvey is relatively blunt, and way more e-book good than avenue good. He does not get jokes at first, and is total relatively naïve on sure matters. That’s to not say he isn’t avenue good, he definitely is aware of his justifiable share of issues. Hanging out with Mannie taught him a factor or two.
Oh boy, the place to start? Harvey is considerably of a… how do I put this kindly? A child. He’s fearful of a variety of issues. As an illustration; the darkish, transferring autos, loud noises, bugs… I might go on for hours. One factor to notice, blood makes him queasy, and yelling aggravates him.
Meals: Harvey has a powerful love for pasta, and a powerful dislike for poultry. His foster mother makes spaghetti like no different, and it makes Harvey soften each time he eats it. Although, he’ll eat virtually something, excessively greasy issues aren’t his favourite, and he’d relatively miss out on.
Drinks: Something tremendous sugary, too candy, or sodas of any variety will go away Harvey with a really disenchanted and gross really feel in his mouth. He’d simply choose water. Or like, milk.
Media: Harvey’s a little bit of a nerd, loving books, MMORPGs, courting sims, and plenty of many extra. Ever since he moved in together with his foster household, he’d been uncovered to way more media than earlier than. Up to now, his favourite factor has been Previous College Runescape, and although his dyslexia and ADHD actually dampen the expertise, he can nonetheless play briefly bursts and be entertained nonetheless. He’s additionally a sucker for cliche romance tales, however he gained’t be entering into that dialogue anytime quickly.
Simply being close to Harvey is sufficient to make you’re feeling some sense of… peace. He’s calming to be round, and although the aura isn’t significantly robust, it’s definitely sufficient to perhaps calm down you a bit.
Often a really weak passive aura, vegetation inside the presence of Harvey will begin to heal slowly. After all, when he’s not specializing in it, it’ll hardly do a lot. When truly making an attempt to rejuvenate vegetation, the method will go alongside a lot faster, and vegetation will heal a lot quicker. This takes a slight quantity of vitality out of Harvey, but it surely’s normally price it, at the least to him.
Inside a 10 ft radius, Harvey can, at will, produce an aura of calmness. The degrees of calm will improve as time goes on, and the scale of the radius will diminish. The calmness ranges will improve slower the extra individuals are within the radius, and the scale will get smaller the extra individuals there are as properly. Anybody inside will begin feeling extra at peace, and far calmer than earlier than.
Harvey can primarily simply summon fruits that develop in spring. Strawberries, apricots, avocados, cherries, and so forth.
The mother Harvey by no means knew, and actually he’d relatively preserve it that manner. He has combined emotions about her, supposedly she was the rationale Harvey was put up for adoption, and why his dad hardly wished to take care of him. Irrespective of how a lot he considers it, Harvey won’t ever understand how Eirene fell for his dad. If this entire Greek goddess factor is actual, she’s an actual downer of a goddess.
In case you have been buddies with Harvey, you’d in all probability not hear a factor about his dad. Harvey tries his hardest to overlook his previous together with his dad. It… doesn’t work, clearly. Thomas was verbally abusive, negligent, a raging alcoholic, and total a horrible particular person. A number of Harvey’s repressed trauma stems from this man.
Harvey is extremely grateful for his two foster mother and father, and tries his hardest to show himself to them. He feels he owes them one thing, one thing he has no attainable manner of giving. Regardless of their insistences, Harvey gained’t pay attention.
Harvey’s solely actual good friend. The 2 clicked immediately as a result of Mannie wasn’t initially bothered with Harvey’s blunt and introverted habits. Whereas they’re greatest buddies, they’re polar opposites. Mannie; loud and brash, and Harvey; quiet and reserved. Harvey tries his hardest to ensure Mannie stays out of hassle. He cares quite a bit about him, and does not need him getting harm.
Harvey makes his greatest makes an attempt to truly overlook most of his previous. However, since most of it actually defines who he’s, it’s primarily inconceivable. Harvey will in all probability inform it in another way to buddies, there’s no want for them to truly know. Harvey prefers holding it to himself. Burdening individuals together with his issues is certainly one of his least favourite issues, and would relatively lie.
Regardless, Harvey was born someplace in Manhattan. His mother deserted them, and he was left together with his dad, Thomas. Listening to about Harvey’s true identification, as a demigod below the signal of Eirene, Thomas wished completely nothing to do with it. Monsters, Gods, fight coaching? Weren’t his drawback. He didn’t even need the rattling cretin that was his son. Thomas was very neglecting of Harvey, not caring for him as he ought to’ve. Harvey was additionally seen as a makeshift stress reliever. He’d relieve his anger by yelling at Harvey, and usually making him really feel horrible for even being born. Harvey turned the best way he’s, quiet, monotone, stoic, purely as a result of his father would lash out at him he spoke out of line, or confirmed an excessive amount of emotion. At 13, one thing occurred that made Thomas snap. One thing that made him put Harvey up for adoption as quickly as attainable, he didn’t need the child in his life not. Each a blessing, and likewise an enormous insult.
Harvey was adopted quickly after by the Nash household. A gaggle of loving people, who tried making Harvey really feel at residence. It took a while, and by a while I imply three years, for Harvey to get used to them. He made greatest buddies with their son, Mannie, after Mannie relentlessly pestered him for days. Now, Harvey merely hangs out with Mannie and a few his buddies, ensuring they don’t rise up to an excessive amount of hassle. He spent a lot of his days with the Nash household watching Mannie and his buddies have enjoyable, which in flip made Harvey completely happy.
Simply right this moment, Harvey was given an avalanche of knowledge. After a salesman pressured himself into their residence, he revealed he was truly a satyr. An actual satyr, from Greek fable. Together with that, seems Harvey’s mother is a Greek goddess, actually. Harvey’s a demigod, and there’s a summer season camp he has to remain at to make sure he’s secure.
“You alright again there, bucko?”
Oooough… Harvey wished to puke. The automotive was barreling down the highway at an alarmingly quick velocity, and Harvey didn’t prefer it one bit. It was a miracle he hadn’t vomited but, however he couldn’t maintain it in for an excessive amount of longer. What did the satyr even say?
“We’re virtually there champ. Sit tight.”
That put Harvey’s thoughts at relaxation for a second. Certain, the satyr was the worst driver he’d come throughout, however this nightmare was virtually over. Harvey watched the vehicles zip by the window, and that solely sort of ruined it. And to completely spoil the second of non permanent calmness, the automotive swerves off the highway, right into a slim clearing by the woods. The automotive drives alongside the bumpy panorama, till they arrive throughout a clearing. Harvey virtually will get full on whiplash because the automotive involves a right away halt. However, Harvey didn’t puke. That was good.
“Halfblood Hill! Simply up there be Camp Halfblood.”
Harvey jumped out of the automotive as fast as attainable. He didn’t need it’s close to one ever once more, that was horrible. He shortly takes two puffs from his inhaler, not realizing how a lot that drive took out of him. It had been some time since he used his inhaler. This wasn’t an excellent signal.
That was hardly even a thanks, merely an indication that he was considerably okay. Harvey grabbed his suitcase out of the trunk, and with out even mentioning something, the satyr speeds off again the place they’d got here. Now Harvey was on their own. Alone together with his suitcase and dread flowing by him. Simply earlier than him was his new residence. Camp… Halfblood… was it? He might hardly keep in mind something from the previous two hours. It was all a blur. His mother was a goddess, that’s about it. Jeez, it was all nonetheless a lot to understand, and it was 5 phrases. Sufficient stalling, Harvey needed to get to camp. It was chilly this afternoon, and he would relatively get someplace heat shortly.
Harvey made positive to take his time climbing up the hill. He virtually didn’t need to see the camp, his new residence. It was… daunting, to say the least. Harvey virtually thought of simply turning round, however he’d haven’t any the place to go. Only a couple extra steps, and he’d make it to the highest. As soon as Harvey crested the hill, he realized he might have been somewhat over dramatic. Hm. It was definitely no unusual summer season camp, but it surely wasn’t what he anticipated. Harvey took a second to absorb the environment, and began to make his trek down the hill.
By trek, I imply tumbling down after tripping over a surfaced root that he hadn’t observed. Harvey began rolling down the hill, solely the sounds of his garments jumbling in his suitcase, and his slight grunts could possibly be heard. Regardless of not making a lot noise, he positive stood out. The intense yellow suitcase, and the inexperienced sweater rolling down the hill wouldn’t be one thing seen on a regular basis. Undoubtedly, somebody would’ve observed Harvey’s bumbling entrance. Touchdown on the foot of the hill, he pauses and lets out a deep sigh, nonetheless on the bottom.
Rocky begin, however you’ve acquired this. It’s primarily only a summer season camp, proper?
