This was his first time playing an RPG game like Pathfinder or Dungeons & Dragons.
When choosing and creating his character, Orion asked the Dungeon Master, Matthew Mercer, if there were any arcane magic wielders within the group. After some discussion over the different mechanics between a wizard and a sorcerer, Orion chose sorcerer as he liked that class better.
Orion made sure to have a very built up back story to his character, including mannerisms and voice, before playing. His character is based off of the Neverwinter MMO character (which Orion also voiced) Elminster Aumar.
Orion describes Tiberius as the false buffoon, where he appears as though he does not know what he's doing, but in a battle he completely changes.
When asked if he could be any other character, Orion said he would be Grog.
On October 28th, 2015 at 6:40 PST, it was announced live on the Geek & Sundry Twitch channel that due to a mutual parting of the ways, Orion would no longer appear on Critical Role. Orion later provided his perspective in a video entitled "Chalk Talk: Why I left Critical Role", but the video was eventually removed or made private. In May 2017, Orion explained in greater detail what had been going on during a Twitch stream on his own channel, including his own struggles with illness, substance abuse, and being in an abusive relationship.
