Jonathan goes by the name of "Oblivion" in the competitive gaming scene and is a member of the Empire Arcadia organization. In addition to being an aspiring “next generation” eSports player, he is also a budding cinematographer who has his eyes on an inevitable career in film. At first, Oblivion grew up playing video games casually. His youth was completely occupied with playing classics like Pokémon Red for the Gameboy (the first game he remembers playing) and Mario Bros. Though his gaming tastes have run the whole gamut of the great titles of the past decades, he now finds himself squarely focused on the games found in today’s eSports arena. Before discovering Triforce and becoming a part of the long Empire Arcadia tradition, Oblivion’s experience in competitive gaming was just playing competitively against friends and family, as well as watching for years from the sidelines as merely a spectator. As a member of Empire Arcadia, Oblivion looks to develop his competitive gaming skills and plans to compete on Splatoon, Mario Kart, Tetris, and more. Oblivion is known throughout the gaming scene with his quotable "Hello?,” as if you don’t hear him coming. • Trading Card artwork by Caerwyn Akiwumi-Jones
