Anagram Character: Tobalen Ylanathajo

Prompt: Rearrange the letters of your first and last name into a new name and describe this character. 

Tobalen was conceived on Earth in 2037 and born on Trappist 1D four thousand years later from a robotic womb. He was one of the first wave of children that Mother delivered that year, though he would grow up with tens of thousands of brothers and sisters. Selected for their intelligence, health, and generally clean genome, his gene donors were a Senegalese obstetrician and a Danish triathlete and nutritionist. He was a beautiful child with light cocoa skin, inky black hair, emerald green eyes, and long slender fingers that made him a natural pianist from a very early age. Mother was still building Home City when he was young, so he spent many days learning about human history and the Universe inside a virtual classroom or playing Beethoven inside The Nursery. He spent a lot of time apart from the other children reading or wandering through the massive greenhouses with his puppy watching the many species of birds, lizards, and other creatures whose genome had come from so far away inside a tiny probe. Tobalen was particularly talented with languages so he often sat near the ponds in the greenhouse speaking to the frogs in Danish or calling to the birds in French, the language his gene donors might have spoken. Officially, Mother insists all her children learn to speak English, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese, but Tobalen had a thirst to learn more. His interests were diverse and his academic talents impressive, though he was a very clumsy child which explains why he would spend far more time reading under his favorite maple tree in the temperate forest dome than playing soccer with other children.
