You can ask him anything you want and Patrick will know the answer to your question. Literally, anything you ask he’ll answer. All he’s life he’s dedicated his time to know everything about everything. It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about rocket science or the life of Vincent Van Gogh, he will tell you every little thing about it, every fun fact there is. He’s always been a very curious boy, reading and researching about whatever it was that caught his attention at the moment. Every time he did this, it ended with him knowing everything about the subject, impressing everyone around. Even at the age of six, Patrick already knew how math and basics arithmetic works. Needless to say, every single teacher was impressed by him, and his parents couldn’t be prouder. His son was number one of his class, after all. Except, when he started growing up, all that pride and awed expressions around started turning him into an arrogant prick. He felt better than everyone, even the teachers. He corrected them without a second thought whenever he saw even the tiniest mistake in their lectures. It wasn’t a surprise when everyone started rolling their eyes at him whenever he came up with a fun fact or a piece of information.
Between all the topics Patrick learnt about, journalism caught his special attention. He got all the information he had from mostly articles in magazines and newspapers, after all. These pieces of information could be found everywhere in his room since he was a little boy, keeping everything he needed even if he remembered them from beginning to end. As he grew up, his interest on this matter grew, and he started writing his own articles, finding that it was a good place to put all the information he’d gathered along the years. So when the time came for him to choose a place to study, of course he wanted the best of the best, finding LRSOA to be the only option for him and instantly applying for it. As expected, Patrick got into the school without any problem, even entirely impressing the teachers and already gaining himself the interest and expectations from those who would be teaching him.
Sometimes, being the way he was prevented Patrick from having a lot of people around, meaning, having friends was hard for him. He always made it look like he didn’t care, like the only thing he needed was himself and the information safely stored in his brain. To be honest, though, he got quite lonely sometimes. Still, not everyone blocked him out just for being who he was; among those who he could call his friends, you can find Ian Miller and Portia Peregrin. Their personalities somehow seemed to mold to Patrick’s, the two always being able to see past his arrogance and into the person who he really is and loving him despite what everyone else thought was wrong with him. Even if Patrick doesn’t like to show it, he really appreciates these people’s friendship and will never do something to push them away like he’s done with so many people before.
