    Tailon Gryffindork

    @SteelMineral @StellarWind Elsydeon @Rex
    Here's where we'll post bios and whatnot. Here is one now:

    Name: Tsubasa Takahashi
    Gender: Female
    Hometown: Ecruteak City, Johto
    Age: 16
    Height: 5’10”
    Weight: 160 lbs
    Hair: Dark Purple

    Clothing: Usually wears a black and green athletic jacket over a gold yellow shirt and grey cargo pants. When training in a dojo setting she wears a traditional kung fu uniform.
    Identifying Marks: Purple hair.
    Build: Athletic.

    Personality: Tries to be a calm, quiet person. Does not always succeed. Ego can get the better of her.
    Skills: A proficient martial artist.

    Past: Born in Ecruteak City, her family moved to Cherrygrove City in order to be closer to her mother's parents. Tsubasa has trained in the martial arts since she was 8 years old, training under her mother and sparring with her partner, Meddy. In her training with Meddy, they have often focused on meditative techniques, as is Meditite's natural wont, but Tsubasa does not take well to them.
    Family: Father, Ken; Mother, Karine

    Pokémon Owned:

    Species: Meditite
    Nickname: Meddy
    Gender: Female

  2. RoseAiluros

    RoseAiluros Mother of Meltans

    Name: Kai Song
    Gender: Female
    Hometown: Olivine City, Johto
    Age: 24
    Height: 5'2"
    Appearance: [Sketching ref. - will edit later tonight]

    Personality: Kai is a person who is creativity intelligent. She is always sketching, writing, dancing or playing an instrument to express some part of herself and enjoys thinking outside of the box when it comes to problem solving. Despite this passion for the arts and puzzles, she is very distant when around others and thus, not much is known about her personality as a whole. The bluenette is not one for speaking or bonding with people in a normal manner. Getting to know her beneath her mask is a challenge for all involved. However, even with this personal wall, she shows great potential as a leader and gives off the vibes of truth. Focusing on the tasks that need done but acknowledging the concerns of her team, Kai can always quieten their doubts and lead them into success. She is not one for fighting, but when pushed, the steel-type trainer is not one to take lightly in the heat of battle.

    Skills: Creativity and leadership.

    Past: Not much is known about the trainers history. It can be assumed that whatever lies in her past is nothing positive to mention as she seems to isolate herself from other human beings whenever possible, rather than encounter them along her travels. Kai will come out of lurking when she sees others in trouble, but for the most part she is always hidden.

    Family: N/A
    Love Relationships: N/A

    _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________​

    Pokemon Owned:


    Species: Scizor
    Nickname: Zeke
    Gender: Male
    Ability: Technician

    Special Features: Typically most Scizor have single yellow dots marking both of their claws. However, Zekes left claw seems to have a yellow star-shaped marking on his as some form of a birthmark. Due to this, Kai often makes a joke about him being the star of her team.

    History: Kai first encountered Zeke as a Scyther whom was previously trained by one of the other neighbourhood children named Glyndwr. The bond between them wasn't a good one as the trainer specialized in water -types, having no interest in the bug or flying variety. This caused countless communication problems between the two that seemed to always end in disaster. Seeing how distressed the Scyther was, Kai offered it an item that she found on the S.S. Aqua during one of her adventures over into Kanto. She had no idea what the thing could do, but the Scyther was more than happy to accept the kind gift. Some time passed before the trainer noticed the newly acquired item during their practice and demanded to see it. The Scyther hesitated and when Glyndwr tried to physically take it, the bug-type dodged. This only lead to another arguement between them. Seeing this, Kai came to the decision to recruit the Scyther onto her own team and upon seeing the Scyther's positive reaction to her declaration, suggested a trade whilst holding up a pokeball containing her Poliwhirl. The trade resulted in Scyther's evolution.

    Species: Mawile
    Nickname: Filia
    Gender: Female
    Ability: Intimidate

    Special Features: Filia wears a jade green magatama that hangs from a black cord around her neck that previously belonged to Kai. It was given to her as a gift much like Zeke received the Metal Coat that ultimately lead to his evolution.

    History: Kai met Filia whilst on her travels into the Kanto region to visit her birthplace in Cerulean city before her family moved to Olivine after her birth. She was making her way down Route 9 towards the Rock Tunnel when the green-eyed trainer overheard a sound of pain from a pokemon nearby. Following the cries, Kai found a Mawile cornered by a Sandshrew. The ground-type didn't look like it was going to stop attacking anytime soon and Mawile looked ready to blank out. It was then that Kai made the rare decision to get involved with the battle and threw out her Poliwhirl to intervene. After Poliwhirl launched a watergun blast at the confused Sandshrew, their opponent fled battle whilst Kai administered a potion to the injured steel-type pokemon. At first, Mawile seemed humiliated to have been rescued by a random trainer and came across aggressive, trying her best to intimidate the mysterious traveller. Despite Mawile's displeasure to the situation, she trailed behind Kai whilst making sounds of disapproval the whole way to the entrance of Rock Tunnel. Taking note of the Mawile's anxiety, Kai figured it had a few run-ins with the Cubone that inhabit the tunnel and promised to protect her as they journeyed through it. The small creature expressed her suspicion, however, found herself slowly nodding in agreement. As they progressed through, FIlia came to see the kind of person Kai really was and grew to admire and respect her. By the time they finally reached the other side, Mawile had made the choice to continue following the traveller and ultimately joined her team.

  3. Rex

    Rex Resident Furry

    Name: Ryan Harrison
    Gender: Male
    Hometown: Castelia City, Unova
    Age: 17
    Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 136lbs
    Hair: Blond
    Eyes: Blue
    Clothing: Ryan wears a pair of black pants and t-shirt, the latter of which he wears a closed blue jacket over top. His shoes are, likewise, black. Finally, he wears a gray eye patch over his right eye.
    Identifying Marks: Under his eye patch, Ryan lacks a right eye. Several claw mark scars extend from his forehead down to his cheek. Though he has a glass eye, made out in his natural eye color, he prefers to wear the eye patch over top it since it hides the majority of the scars.
    Musculature: Thin.
    Personality: Despite his scarring, Ryan is highly interested in Pokemon. He is a reserved person, only really opening up to his Pokemon, who he speaks to often. He has an unhealthy amount of wanderlust.
    Skills: Ryan is a natural battler, who is good at thinking on the fly.
    Past: Born in Castelia City, Ryan's life has always been fast paced. An unfortunate accident with a Sandile cost him his right eye when he was twelve. Though overtime he came to blame himself for the incident, and dedicated his time to studying Pokemon, his parents, in part because of the event, and in part because of the disability it left him with, refused to allow him to go on an adventure. It took an extra five years, but, in the process of moving to Johto, Ryan was finally able to convince his parents to allow him to get his first Pokemon, and adventure through a new region where there were no Sandiles to threaten his remaining eye.
    Family: Mother, Gwen, and father, Victor, living in Mahogany Town.
    Love Relationships?: None.
    Pokémon:
    Oshawott (Dodger) - Male, Torrent. Dodger was a parting gift to remember Unova by, gotten shortly before his move. He gets along with the Pokemon amazingly. It has no battle experience, but Ryan has been sure to instill within it a great amount of confidence, and the two are ready to challenge the world together.

    Might chance some aspects of this later, but it's a start, at least. Alongside Oshawott, I'd like to tentatively claim Smeargle.

    Finally have a bio for this lady.

    Name: Tamara Lauren Crawford

    Age: 19

    Gender: Female

    Current Residence: Mahogany Town

    Appearance: Tamara is dark skinned, her eyes are brownish hazel (though more brown than hazel) and her hair is dark brown, frizzy and at a length that ends a bit above her shoulders. Her natural build is pear-shaped and fairly compact (at about 1.63m of height), though years of swimming have toned her shoulder muscles, which makes them appear a bit broader than they actually are. She tends to favor sporty outfits, somewhat tight-fitted crop tops, knee-length shorts and walking shoes, and has a fondness for shades of blue.

    Identifying Marks: None to be particularly worth mentioning.

    Personality: Tamara is a generally cheerful, active and lively sort, with an appreciation for the simple things in life. She likes being on the move, and swimming in particular - much of her free time around her hometown is spent in and around the Lake of Rage, or taking walks (or the occasional jog) through the nearby routes. Even though she strives for constant self improvement, she is not on the whole very competitive when it comes to other people. Her active nature aside, she is also fairly musically inclined - and her instrument of choice is her voice. She has taken lessons for a while when she was younger - and even these days, quite often she may be found listening to her Pokégear's radio and singing or humming along, especially when taking one of her long walks.

    Skills: Swimming and singing are her strongest suites. She is also quite knowledgeable on Lapras as she spent the past couple of years handling them, but otherwise she is still fairly new to the Pokémon training and battling scene.

    History: Tamara has lived in Mahogany Town for as long as she can remember, and the first few years of her life have been fairly unremarkable - just a typical child's life in a rural mountain town. As neither of her parents were serious trainers, the only constant Pokémon presence she grew up with was the family dog - an old Houndoom who, while appearing quite fierce, was generally a placid, gentle sort of creature. Unlike her two-years-younger little sister - who was always running around and having mock Pokémon battles with other neighborhood kids, and dreamed of journeying ever since she was eight years old - Tamara generally appreciated Pokémon but did not feel the urge to go on a huge world-spanning journey. Her parents, either way, were rather sensible people and had fairly strong objections to the idea of any of their children going out on their own for any prolonged duration of time before they were at least 15, and she didn't particularly mind either way (also unlike her sister, who just couldn't wait to get out there and kick tail, and didn't take her "imprisonment" all too well).

    When she was 16, Tamara started volunteering at the local Gym, where Pryce, the Gym Leader, was conducting a conservation project/breeding program meant to eventually restore Lapras to the waters of Johto and Kanto after their near-extinction. Working with these creatures appealed to her greatly as Lapras are swimming creatures which communicate through song - something she felt a kinship to. After passing a few initial evaluations, she was finally interviewed by Pryce, who held the final decision on the subject matter. After looking her over and a brief conversation about her interest in bringing Lapras back to the wild, he chose to assign her to care for a small, pale and frail recently-born female - cryptically saying that after some time passes, he will know.

    Nurturing the creature - which would have had a very low chance of survival in the wild - was no easy feat, but Tamara persevered, and it wasn't too long before the female grew stronger and caught up with the other Laprases. Over time, Tamara noticed that "her" Lapras and those assigned to several other volunteers who received similar tasks, began exhibiting unusual traits - minor morphological differences that did not resemble 'pure' Lapras stock, and some unusual moves. As it turned out - in order to increase the variations in the gene and move pool of the offspring, several non-Lapras male lines have been introduced into the breeding program. The resulting offspring varied greatly, with some individuals clearly demonstrating higher chances of survival than others - and the individuals raised by her and others like her were those of the lowest chances. This was a test and a lesson in one for the volunteers - to see what manner of people they are, how they handle challenging situations, how they would treat not only the strongest, fittest individuals in a pod but also the weakest ones - as well as to teach them that even what appeared like a lost cause could be attained, and that the harsh lessons of life are necessary to truly flourish. "When the ice and snow melt, spring arrives" the elderly Gym Leader said - and spring truly did. The Lapras was now a force to be reckoned with, and with the deep bond formed between Tamara and the water-type, she was permitted to keep her for her own, in lieu of a starter Pokémon.

    As she turned 19, Pryce encouraged her to take a break and go on a journey with her Lapras - because while her help was appreciated, it was time for her and her Lapras to have new experiences together - something he believed is important for both the girl and the Lapras. Tamara considered this for a while, and was eventually convinced. This is where her adventure starts.

    Family: Her parents aside, She is pretty close to her sister, who left on her trainer journey the day after her 15th birthday, and is currently in a different region, having collected the gym badges of Johto and Kanto in the past two years. They talk fairly often via Pokégear, her sister often prodding her about starting her own journey so they can battle someday. Until recently, she never thought of this seriously. Now she is somewhat uneasy about the idea, though at the same time she certainly wishes to, when she gets skilled enough to actually do that - give her sister quite the battle.

    Love Relationships: None.

    Pokémon on hand:

    Nickname: Eira
    Species: Lapras
    Type: Water / Ice
    Gender: Female
    Ability: Water Absorb
    History/Personality: Eira's male parent was a rather powerful Aurorus, and as a result, she possesses some morphological changes in comparison to the average Lapras - mainly in the form of a faint iridescence to her scales and markings somewhat resembling those of Aurorus, icy crystals embedded in the spikes of her shell and a short, sail-like 'fin' running along her neck, which may change color with her mood. Her appearance was not the only thing she inherited from her fossil parent, though - Eira has also inherited the ability to utilize Freeze-Dry and Ancient Power in combat, increasing her diversity further.

    Eira, like many of her species, is serene, contemplative, and slow to anger - and seems to radiate a certain sense of silent, resolute strength that suggests that getting on her bad side would not be a wise idea. She has a deep bond with Tamara due to their mutual history.

    Nickname: Rhonwen
    Species: Heracross
    Type: Bug / Fighting
    Gender: Female
    Ability: Guts
    History/Personality: Rhonwen was Tamara's first capture, encountered on Route 42 on her way from Mahogany Town to Ecruteak City. Tamara engaged in battle with the Heracross after a surprise attack on the creature failed due to an elemental resistance she was not aware of. It was a fairly close battle, but eventually Tamara defeated the insect through a combination of Brine and Freeze-Dry, finally testing it in proper battle. To her surprise, the Heracross took her capture humbly, taking to the trainer as a mentor figure. Rhonwen is a fairly new capture, and the two have not yet had time to bond. However, Rhonwen has demonstrated a fierce battle spirit, which will indubitably be an asset to Tamara's team.

    Her tentative final planned team will additionally include Sandslash, Noctowl, Ditto and possibly Bulbasaur. Bit of an oddball team, but it might just work.

    Right. Had to raise the discussion thread from the grave as I have to clear something with @Chadwyck - In my next post, can I actually move us the hell along towards the gym to save us a string of short tedious interaction posts? Can't have your character go anywhere without your permission, obv. XD
     
  6. Rex

    Rex Resident Furry

    I'm thinking of having Ryan swing through the Ruins of Alph to grab a Smeargle on the way to Violet City. Unless any of you also want to make a pit stop there, I'd rather just have him go on alone and meet your characters in Violet City.
     
  7. Yes. I figured that would be what we would do with that post xD move us along, by all means. Also, @Rex there aren't any Pokémon in the area I'm planning on having Dani catch, so that's a no from me.
     
  8. Figured I should get a bio up for Danika, so here it goes.

    Name: Danika Melbourne

    Age: 15

    Gender: Female

    Hometown: Nimbasa City, Unova

    Appearance: Danika is short and thin, with the former mostly a result of youth. She's not particularly toned or muscular, but has an average build. Her hair is dirty blonde down just past her shoulders and her eyes are ocean blue. She generally wears a yellow tank top with green accents and black leggings under blue denim shorts that go down to just above her knees. She wears black and brown hiking boots and a yellow hoodie with similar green accents to her tank top either on over the tank top or tied around her waist. The last thing she wears is a yellow and blue hat with her hair in a ponytail.

    Identifying Marks: Nothing especially interesting.

    Personality: Danika is sort of a spaz in the sense that she isn't very sure of herself around others - not to say she is shy, since she is a very outgoing girl, but she is not particularly sure of how to approach people and tends to talk too much on first meetings. She is warm and pleasant to most everyone she meets and strives most of all to make friends. She is also a big thrill seeker, having grown up in the same city as the amusement park in Unova, she became a bit of an adrenaline junkie. She has a number of hobbies, from following the latest technology trends to climbing trees alongside her Joltik, she always finds a way of keeping herself occupied.

    Skills: Definitely knowledgeable about technology, especially newer gadgets. Never actually been in a battle against another trainer before and still new to battling and training in general, but good instincts. Other than that, nothing too above average.

    Family: Danika is close with her parents, despite the tension she felt with them upon uprooting them from Unova - deep down she realized that moving wasn't really their fault, they had to for work after all. She has no brothers or sisters, but she does have a cousin that she doesn't really keep in touch with frequently, last she heard from him he had been traveling around Hoenn and challenging the league in that region with a few of his friends; occasionally he'll call and give her an update on his adventures. He was partly responsible for her pestering her parents for months to be allowed to join the league once they arrived in Johto.

    Love Relationships: None.

    Pokémon on hand:

    Nickname: Lux
    Species: Joltik
    Type: Bug / Electric
    Gender: Male
    Ability: Compound Eyes
    History/Personality: Lux was given to Danika as a gift from her parents when they moved away from Unova as they knew that it would be difficult for Danika to adjust to a new environment and to be away from the home that she knew. Lux has been a constant companion to Danika since the day she received him and the Joltik will not leave her side for more than a minute. They still lack experience battling, but Lux has never failed Danika in anything - he knows he won't fail her in battling when the time comes. A happy little thing, Lux is quick to make friends, just like his trainer, but he is discouraged when people shudder away from him because of his Bug typing. When Danika wasn't scared of him it gave him immediate hope that she was going to be a true friend and immediately imprinted on her.

    I'm also trying to plan a final team for her - I'm hoping to have her capture a Growlithe on the way to Violet City and maybe a Gastly at some point. Then, I think to round it out with Sudowoodo, Mankey, and I'm torn between Slowpoke or Wooper. But yeah, here's my bio xD

    Pardon my taking forever to post, work is kind of kicking my arse in the last few days. I'll attempt to get something up in the next few.

    Now that we have enough information about Alolan Pokemon I think that I'm going to apply a little change to Tamara's future team. Instead of her planned Noctowl and Bulbasaur-line-representative, I think I'm going to give her a Rowlet instead (I've yet to figure out how exactly I want her to get the thing, though). Her final Pokemon, I think, will be Ninetales (original flavor, not pixie popsicle flavor).

    That is, assuming this RP moves again. XD I think we're still waiting on Tailon?

  11. I've been regularly checking back and saw Rex's post, I think it has circled back around to Tailon. (At least it isn't me this time |D)
