Orion Acaba was born on October 14, 1980. He is a voice actor birthed in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, United States. Orion is an American of Puerto Rican heritage. He is currently living at Valley Village, CA, and his other family members are Annette Acaba and Christal Acaba.

Orion gained wide admiration for playing Tiberius Stormwind (also known as Tibs or Tibsy). The character is a 28-year-old humanoid who came from the Dragonborn race and a class of sorcerers.

Details On Why He Left Critical Role

There are many stories revolving around Orion’s reasons for leaving his role on Critical Role. Many say it’s because he has HIV, others said he verbally abused his ex-girlfriend (Corina Boettger) on social media and left his Tiberius role because of public shaming. Still, some people have insisted he left because people criticized him about putting up a fundraising for a volunteer moderator of his Twitch stream who suffered a tragic accident in which she lost her father, but never giving her a dime of what was raised or donated. He allegedly decided to do a charity stream and donate the proceeds to her, but instead of giving her the money, he used it to buy things for himself. Actually, many dislike Orion currently because of the many ‘evil’ things he supposedly did.

Well, it hasn’t been easy for the voice actor. Having many of his fans turn their backs on him and call him names are some of the things he battled and is still battling with. Some new fans have done the same thing without knowing all the facts. So, Orion decided to upload a video on YouTube telling his fans why he left Critical Role. In the video, he stated that he delved into drugs and was later diagnosed with cancer and HIV. Feeling so depressed and crippled, he felt insane sometimes. The vacuum the disease and drugs left in him made him say a lot of things he shouldn’t have said to the public. He said he didn’t know why he left, but that he didn’t leave because the team made him. He reassured those who watched his shows that he loves and missed them.

Orion has declared his interest in coming back to Twitch with his new girlfriend to continue the game, with a new channel, name, and everything. Even though he got mixed comments from the public, many of his fans still want him back on the game.
