Can you be more specific regarding his beliefs? "He is open to change" is a bit vague. Try saying things like "he is fascinated with the existence of aliens" or "believes that all religions point to one god" or something like that. His interest in Eastern beliefs could play a big part in this. Also inject personality
into it - is he cynical? Patriotic? Foul-tempered? CSes are supposed to be descriptive, after all.
Also go into more detail with his background. I could certainly see how a life in an orphanage could make or break you, but elaborate a little. Did he get into lots of fights with his peers? Was he rebellious or actively questioned authority? It is also worth mentioning that orphanages back then (and even now) were potential hotbeds of abuse, whether it be physical, verbal, sexual, etc.
Lastly, I'd encourage you to fix up your English syntax a little - there are many misspelled words in your CS ('apecept' twice in a row?). I'm not that strict with posting requirements, but at the very least make your writing easy to read.
