Character of the Week: Olis - The Tightrope Walk between Personal Ambition and Volatile Talent

Storyline:  A Wingless Flight of Fancy
Height:  5'6"
Weight:  140 lbs
Race:  Tierrine
Birthplace:  Opaline, Tierrine
Theme Song: You Need Me, I Don't Need You, Ed Sheeran

Fourth child of eight in a dirt poor, unwinged, common family.  He came from humble beginnings that could never, ever satisfy such an innovator.  Fortunately he's used to making the best out of a tough situation.

From an early age he was saddled with the thankless task of keeping his twin sister Uli out of trouble.  After realizing this was impossible, he determined to make her talents into their ticket to the rest of the world.

Olis is clever and likeable - both by nature and necessity as he has to constantly work at balancing his talented sister's brash and abrasive personality, rebuilding bridges she heedlessly burns.  This became especially important once he determined they should turn her acrobatic performances into a business.

Taking their show on the road Olis added the even larger challenge of marketing.  His twin is of no help here, so he relies on his childhood best friend Sephon and the other people that are drawn in along the way.

The question is will living such a tough, hand to mouth existence, with Uli seeming to sabotage his every effort end in Stardom or Sororicide???
