Atticus Jorahn was a man who struck wealth in his early age, but instead chose the simpler life as an outdoors man, and a traveler, knowing he could live this life continuously based on his economic status. He met his to-be-wife while servicing as a Firewatcher one summer, and they've been together ever since she recklessly lit a campfire.
Atticus Jorahn is a man who tries to look on the bright side, and keep a positive outlook on life, even during the circumstances he finds himself in now. He tries to keep himself good, but sometimes he doesn't know how to contain himself in this new world, and that's his struggle. He's not a violent man, but he will defend what is his, including his goal of finding his wife which he was seperated from after the cruise ship Costa Risacca went down. All Atticus knows is that his wife got into a different lifeboat, but he never knew if she made it to shore. But he still hopes there is a chance of finding her.
