Year 1844: Patrick is born to Jarius and Ivy as the coronation of their star crossed love. From an early age he shows a captivation for the lullabies his mother sings to him, and music in general. Born after their "seperation" he is raised primarily with his mother but is often allowed to stay with his father as they run it in a joint-custody.
Year 1849: He contracts an otitis and the doctor (Jason) is worried that it might lead to permanent hearing damage. Patrick becomes terrified of him as a result, hiding away in the house whenever Jason comes to visit and endeavoring in all ways NOT to meet him. The otitis eventually regresses – though his fear of the doctor does not.
Year 1850: He takes up studying and soon becomes engrossed with music and (later down the road) science, amusing for a child terrified of doctors (and medicine) as he is!
Year 1853: Develops an interest for alchemic science and magic, and starts toying with the idea to join the new school for mages. What holds him back is the knowledge that he could no longer study with his friends (and borrow their homeworks!), so he avoids to bring up the topic to his parents just yet.
In Libra he is forcably ripped away from his mother by Jarius, who decides to take claim of the boy completely. Naturally Patrick resents his father for this action and tries to escape the mansion many times - breaking his leg while trying to climb out a window even. As a result, Galleon orders the boy confined to his bedroom when he's not in classes and to always have an escort to ensure he won't runaway.
Year 1854: Jarius can't take it anymore and starts sneaking Patrick to see Ivy once a month or so. He disguises the trips as various father-son outtings so as not to raise Galleon's suspiscions. Eventualy his father allows him to return home to his mother.
Percy notices Chester working on documents for the newly made Consortium. When Chester offers him to join, Percy happily agrees and also asks to have Patrick on as his “assistant”. Chester refuses the assistant role but says Patrick can be his errand boy – assistants must invent!
Percy tells Patrick about how he can take him on as an errand boy… but that he will eventually have to move to the new flying military fortress once it is finished! Patrick wants to come with him, but can he talk his parents into it?
Patrick wants to join Percy when he goes to the yet unnamed military fortress (Dawnbringer) that is being built to directly combat the Slada’sha threat. However, it had to be a creative sell to his parents since: a) Patrick is 11 (with Percy being15), b) this is a flying military fortress that will go far from home and fight corrosive, corruptive, WORLD ENDING evils on a regular basis. It didn’t work and Patrick was left grounded.
Year 1855: Sir Ross goes missing and Ashlyn searches everywhere for the parrot. She runs into Patrick and Percy, who were testing a device again and they agree to help her track it down. They find it in some trees but it keeps hopping tree-to-tree to get away when they climb up after it. Finally, frustrated, Ashlyn unconsciously uses her powers and a vine grows on one of the trees to snare the bird’s foot – allowing one of the boys to catch it for her.
Grace is born to Ivy and Jarius. After the labor is over, father and Patrick come in to check on Ivy and the new addition to the family. Patrick is less than enthused.
Percy spends time with Patrick. They discuss new techniques and Patrick finds himself infatuated with Percy’s intellect.
Jarius returns home to explain the disowned situation to Ivy and Patrick. The two are shocked but back up his desire to focus on this family instead of his old one. However, they can no longer use their old family name (Gideon) and thus must use Ivy’s family name: Hastings.
Year 1856: When a teacher is late to class, the students get unruly and begin fighting with one another (Patrick & Keita). Upon returning to the chaos the teacher is furious and gives them all detention in a locked room. The children split into two groups, those who want to escape the room and those who want to wait out their punishment. The children are forced to choose sides in the conflict. In the end, Keita blows the door off, Patrick stays to get in trouble and Keita stays with him because of it. After, they are both scolded by their parents.
YEar 1857: Patrick and Monnique get voted as “best couple” at school and take it as a sign they should give it a try. However, Patrick spends most of their date obsessing over his time with Percy and generally boring the poor girl to death.
Percy caves in and confides in Patrick about his crush on Hope. Patrick suggests they do a double date and he can bring along Monnique.
Patrick goes out of his way to invite Hope to the party and get the scope of the woman to see if she’s “worthy” of Percy. Hope comes to the double date with Percy, Monnique and Patrick attending. Patrick decides to go neutral, try to help Percy until Monnique drops the ball that Percy has a crush to Hope and seals the party for them. Patrick escapes with Monnique to let the two talk.
Year 1858: Keita’s family has a party for him, with Monnique and Patrick also invited. Percy returns unexpectedly and Patrick’s emotions for the other teen go on overload into a direction he hadn’t realized before!
