First of all Haisha/敗者 is a Japanese word meaning Loser/defeated person. Heres the RP! https://pokecharms.com/threads/pokemon-mystery-dungeon-team-haisha-rp.22718/ That... That kinda summarizes the team in a nutshell. If your planning on Joining Team Haisha, why? Are you a loser who couldn't get into any good rescue teams? Are your standards that low? Maybe you just decided to join the first team you saw. Maybe you felt sorry for these pathetic losers ,and decided to help them out. At least that's what you might have told yourself before you decided to join. The base itself is kind of a ramshackle location. It looks kinda pretty bad on the outside. A broken window, burn marks on one of the walls, scratch marks on another side. It's definitely seen better days. However the leader a Sableye named Saba managed to get the building free from some Garbodor who wanted to move to another town ,but couldn't seem to sell the place. Despite being given to Saba from a garbodor of all pokémon Saba actually managed to make the interior fairly decent. It actually looks a lot nicer on the inside than it does on the outside. Sadly that doesn't really mean much when you look at the outside. The base itself is fairly large ,and can accommodate all sorts of pokémon of varying shapes and sizes. Despite this Saba doesn't know a single thing about owning a building. Saba eventually decided to turn it into a guild ,and form a rescue team. Only problem was Saba didn't actually think this through as he had no idea who to ask ,or what sort of pokémon to ask to join his guild. So one day he just made a bunch of flyers. Like a lot. And just threw them all over the place. Some were neatly nailed to posts. Others were just tossed on the ground. A couple were slid under people's front doors. Saba definitely didn't know what he was doing ,but he was fully confident this would work. Now the only thing left for Saba to do was to figure out why he wanted to be an explorer. The house is a two story building. A living room in the middle of the bottom floor, a dining room to the left of the living room ,and the kitchen to the farthest left side of the house. To the far right side of the house are bathrooms. On the second floor are all the bedrooms. Every single one of them empty until the new resident decides to decorate it. There is a bed in each room. Saba isn't a monster. He isn't going to make you sleep on the floor. Even though he used to sleep on a cave floor prior to living in the house. There was also a surprisingly large basement. that seemed like a great place for training ,and possibly storage. As the guild grows the various pokémon will be put in groups of three or four. The groups may be bigger if there are not enough pokémon to full group. After each mission the groups will be able to switch up so all members of the team will be able to interact together at some point. FIrst of all lets start off by saying, The world is kinda crazy. You have evil pokémon teams, you have criminals ,rescue teams, all sorts of natural disasters from earthquakes, tornados ,tsunamis. Luckily for the most part the natural disasters are kinda rare ,but it doesn't change the fact that a lot of pokémon need saving. Plus those bad pokémon need arresting. Chop chop! These problems ain't gonna solve themselves. RULES - Follow pokécharms rules - No god mode shenanigans. - Limit swear words. These are pokémon. Not sailors. - eight is the maximum moves you can know. - Lets try mimimize gore detail. This ain't no Mortal Kombat. - No autoing. - If you don't post for a week the story will move on -fully evolved pokémon are allowed ,but your still the same strength as everyone else.

Saba also has tons of small scratches and scares on his hands from years of digging. Personality: Saba is a fairly hyperactive sableye. He enjoys collecting gem stones ,and rare ore. Saba is obsessed with his 'shiny stuff' ,and won't hesitate to hide it all from the world. Despite this he is more than happy to share the loot equally. he normally keeps his share hoarded away in his room for anyone who walks in to see. Saba tries to be a nice friendly mon. He's polite ,and does care about the other mon around him ,but is really defensive about the stuff in his room. Despite starting the team he doesn't see himself as a guildmaster or the leader type. Saba would much rather collaborate with others on what the team should do. Three defining Skills: scouting, stealth ,and searching. Personality flaw(s): impatient Defining skill flaw(s): physically weak. He ain't very strong. He needs some moomoo milk. Why did you really join?: Saba joined because he had nothing better to do. Plus he needed money to fix his new place up. Moveset: power gem, confuse ray, scratch, dig, zen headbutt, night shade, shadow sneak ,and nasty plot. Backstory: Saba spent his younger years in a cave. He hoarded a lot of gems ,and ore in his cosy little corner in the cave he called home. It was a fairly small corner of a large cave ,but it was big enough for all his loot ,and that was good enough for him. Saba one day was given a letter from his old friend Garbodor. He knew him ever since he was a trubbish. Garbodor had plans of leaving his ol' hometown to move on to bigger ,and better places. Maybe make something for himself. Because he couldn't sell his dump of a home he gave it to Saba. Saba took the home and turned it into less of a dump. He eventually managed to clean the inside of the house. So well that you might almost forget a garbodor used to live there. Well almost forget. Saba was so excited to move to his new place he decided to move all his valuable gems and ore to his new room. He decided to give his less valuable trinkets away ,but made sure to keep his dented slightly broken harmonica. His harmonica skills were pretty bad though. With sounds similar to that of iron claws across a chalk board or the wailing screams of a misdreavus.

Spoiler: Clad/Gamingfan Species: Golurk Name: Clad Age:Unknown Gender:less (referred to as a he) Defining features: Unlike most golurk, Clad doesn't have a scar on his chest. He also glows slightly brighter than most golurk. Overall, he looks very menacing, although is anything but. Personality: Clad has a very conflicting personality. Like most golurk, he's protective of the people he cares about and will defend them with his life, but never fights any aggressors, even if they attack him. Despite his pacifism, however, extreme stress could cause him to lose himself, and start attacking anyone in sight, only stopping if someone defeats him, or he tires out. He also lacks a backbone, is easily stressed, and doesn't know his own strength at times, but is one of the kindest pokemon alive. Three defining Skills: Extreme strength, Mode of transport, Great tank Personality flaw(s): Clad is an extremely powerful pokemon, with great strength and versatility. He'd be a huge threat in a fight...if he wasn't a coward. Well, coward is a bit of an a exaggeration. He's more of a pacifist, refusing to fight anyone with the hope to talk things out. Defining skill flaw(s): Pacifist, Risk of a rampage Why did you really join?: After much time travelling, Clad was very lonely. He considered joining many teams, and even got a few offers to be in a few big ones. He was part of a few, but they would always kick him out once they see him curl up in corner at the sight of a rattata. He decided that joining a small, simple team would work out. Maybe he could be something other than a weapon. Moveset: Shadow punch/Earthquake/Flash cannon/ Dynamic Punch/ Psychic/ Stone edge/Ally switch/ Rest Backstory: Clad has no idea about his past. The earliest memory he has is when he woke up in a forest. He was taken in by a female Leavanny and male Scizor, who acted like his adoptive parents. Training with Scizor made him the powerful pokemon is, and his mother taught him the benefits of pacifism. There rarely was trouble in the forest, which further compounded Clad's passivity, until the day he evolved. The evolution affected his mind, causing him to go on a rampage. He stopped eventually, but not after tearing down much of the land and hurting is father, who had attempted to stop him. Ashamed, Clad decided to start travelling, hoping to better control his power and remember his past. Spoiler: Louis/Red Gallade Species: Mawile Name: Louis (Or Lou) Age: 16 Gender: Male Defining features: His large back jaw has a golden tooth. He wears a Black and White winter scarf around his neck. Personality: Louis is first seen as a laid back and carefree individual, never afraid to talk back or lace situations with his sarcastic humor. That said, despite his sass, he can still be friendly if he wants to be and always does what he can to help anyone out. Although he can be very cruel when angry, to the point where he wouldn't mind breaking a few bones belonging to whomever ticked him off, this side of himself is something he's 'unfortunately' aware of and does his best to "bury it." Three defining Skills: Strength, Combat, Tracking Personality flaw(s): If pushed the wrong way, his cruelty may cause more harm than good. Defining skill flaw(s): He sometimes gets overconfident with his strength which is what sometimes leads him to his downfalls. Why did you really join?: He wanted to find a quiet team that could help him to keep him calm, yet have it's fair share of thrills. Move set: Iron Head, Crunch, Ice Beam, Thunder Punch, Fire Fang, Poison Fang, Protect Spoiler: backstory Louis was born within a gang of bandits between his Mawile mother and his Perrserker father who was the gang's leader and lived up in the mountains. For most of his life, Louis only knew violence and cruelty as his gang went about lying, stealing and cheating, Louis' mother was the only parent who actually cared for her child and secretly hated the life she lead, telling Louis how she was "stolen" after her village was destroyed and taught Louis the joy of kindness and helping others, much to his father's disgust. For the most part, Louis mainly stayed withing camp to help his mother or any other bandits, some of the latter were more grateful than others. One day, Louis' gang was attacked by a rival bandit gang lead by a Bisharp who declared that all property in the mountains belonged to him and a brutal battle broke out, Louis' mother went in to hiding while Louis did his best to fight everyone off, but the Bisharp's gang had the advantage in numbers. Louis confronted the Bisharp and demanded to battle; if the Bisharp won, the gang yield everything they have, but if the Mawile won, Bisharp's gang leaves and never returns, with a cruel smile the Bisharp agreed while Louis' father watched, confident that his son was strong enough. The battle lasted what almost seemed like forever, but with one last powerful blow, the Bisharp knocked Louis hard against a wall hard enough for his large jaws to lose a tooth. When the battle was over, the Bisharp's gang went and took everything the Perrserker's gang had, the former approached Louis one last time and gifted him a golden tooth to replace his old one, calling it a "sign of respect" before leaving. Louis' father was furious with his son, berating him non-stop, his mother wanted to interfere, but was too afraid to step in, in the end, Louis' father exiled him and said he had one day to grab whatever he could and leave the gang forever. Louis had mixed feeling about his banishment, while he was indeed free from the violence his gang were known so well for, he was removed from the only family he ever knew. Now he travels to make a newer and nicer living for himself. Spoiler: Sheepish/BegalBitez Species: Ampharos Name: Sheepish Age: 15 Gender: Male Defining features: Slightly paler than a normal Ampharos Personality: Shy in some ways, can be overly cautious when unsure of victory. He is comfortable mainly with people he knows well and tries to avoid those who are new to him. Three defining Skills: Sniper, Status inflictor, Some team buffs Personality flaw(s): Has the tendency to back away from tough battles, or battles he is losing to possibly get them from long range Defining skill flaw(s): Can up and hide at times because of its fear of losing Why did you really join?: Sheepish wanted to help protect people that needed protecting, plus he wanted to start getting over his fears of losing and getting hurt. Moveset: Shockwave, Zap cannon, Confuse ray, Thunder wave, Signal beam, Power gem, Light screen, Dragon pulse Backstory: Sheepish started out as a mareep but living underground with a mix of other pokemon. He was always happy but feared what was above ground. When many natural disasters occured at one point and a meteor almost killed the world (the events of Pokemon MD: Blue/Red), he had to leave and protect his friends he knew as his underground home was caving in from all of the earthquakes. He then spent many long years roughing it in the wilderness, defeating pokemon who tried to steal his food. He eventually evolved into a Flaffy and then an Ampharos. But after years of being contested for food he never really trusted new pokemon. He also learned to better use his more ranged attacks since it was always harder to hit the other pokemon with close range attacks. When ever he is losing he remembers all of those years of surviving and it gives him ptsd making him very scared of losing. Spoiler: Ayla/Alternate_Mystery Species: Raichu Name: Alya Age: 16 Gender: Female Defining features(Example; scar or birthmark): Her ears are actually green with a blue gradient. Personality: When it comes to anything, Alya is a loyal Pokemon. She's known for keeping her cool in nearly any scenario, but can sometimes go a bit far for her requests. Yeah, she does a bit of stuff for a price. Due to a incident prior to joining, she's a bit nervous about doing electric attacks. Three defining Skills: Fast, loyal, good hearing. Personality flaw(s): Alya isn't the most confident Pokemon. She'd rather be alone most of the time, but keeps a good act up for her companions. Defining skill flaw(s): Manipulative, antisocial, unconfident with electric attacks. Why did you really join?: Alya joined with the intention of getting over her fears, but also to settle a childhood score with a friend. (Detail in backstory.) Moveset: Thunder Punch, Take Down, Thunderbolt, Iron Tail, Volt Tackle. Backstory: Alya was born in a distant ranch, known as "Shockstar Field". Most Pikachu of the Pokemon world are born there. Although it's called a ranch, it's just as the name says: It's a huge field that shocks you when fan across. At the time, the inhabitants were nervous about the "Marine Ear Disease", which caused the host to gain unnecessary powers that can destroy anyone. Soon enough, Alya hatched with the gradient ears, so most Pikachu stayed away from her. As she grew, she took on a test another Pikachu set her. Blast her willing friend with a Thunderbolt at full power. She did, but just as it hit a earthquake struck the field. The bolt rolled out of its targets way, and actually killed a whole flock of Spearow who were nearby. Overcome by guilt, Alya left the field quickly and never went. The aftershock of the blast had the effects of a Thunder Stone, and it caused her to evolve into a Raichu and she eventually found the guild. She remains regretful about using electricity to this day. Spoiler: Faust/NotaViolinist Species: Shedinja Name: Faust Age: late teens/early 20s Gender: genderless ("they/them") Defining features(Example; scar or birthmark): a jagged scar down the middle of their back from their "birth," as well as multiple scars on their left claw Personality: level-headed, absent-minded, self-confident yet quiet. Hoards information like treasure, and has a fondness for silky cloth. Despite how weak they are they understand how to compensate for those weaknesses. Three defining Skills: strategy, sneak attacks, status effects Personality flaw(s): Not that good at communication (keeps secrets, doesn't let the others know what they're thinking, etc.) and may come off as aloof at times. Just not used to being around other Pokemon in general. Defining skill flaw(s): See below Why did you really join?: Shedinja are notorious for being weak in combat (they only have 1 HP and don't have that many strong attacks). Faust was rejected by several teams because of this. They want to travel and learn as much as they possibly can, but without a team it's highly unlikely they would get anywhere without being attacked and fainting. Moveset: Shadow Sneak, Shadow Claw, Sand Attack, Confuse Ray, Will-o-Wisp, Dig, X-Scissor Backstory: They were born at an evolutionary spring (like the one in Explorers ofTime/Darkness/Sky) when a Nincada evolved into Ninjask. An orphan from birth, they wandered confusedly through the forest nearby, spooking Pokemon that wandered in and unintentionally starting the legend of a strange spirit in the woods. Eventually Duskull, a banker from the nearby town, took them in and helped them develop their hunger for knowledge. With a new purpose in life, they trained and studied to cover their weaknesses, and ended up applying to many rescue teams in the search for more. Spoiler: Fang/Night's Shadow Species: Rockruff Name: Fang Age: Idk, teen-ish I guess Gender: Female Defining features: Several of her neck rocks are broken off, her teeth are longer than average, and one eye is ice blue while the other is dark brown. Personality: Reckless, rough, and overall bold. Isn’t afraid to show her stuff and kick the butt of anyone who ticks her off. Her loyalty is unyielding once she gives it. Although some people may not want it, seeing as she seems to be allergic to following orders. Not a big fan of others, and she enjoys knocking people around. Three defining Skills: Speed, sense of smell (for tracking and battle), good at finding openings to use her teeth Personality flaw(s): Reckless. Tends to overestimate herself. Likes to fight, and occasionally starts arguments just for fun. Defining skill flaw(s): A melee fighter. Strikes in rapid succession before jumping lightly out of range. Unfortunately, her rocks are rather brittle, and while they will cut flesh, they will shatter on contact with a hard surface. Her vision is often cloudy, but her depth perception is on-point even if she can’t exactly see the size of the target. Why did you really join?: Her brother joined. That’s pretty much it. Familial peer pressure. Moveset: Rock Tomb, Bite, Stone Edge, Rock Throw, Last Resort Backstory: A typical family life, except Fang’s brother was naturally skilled, quiet, and laid-back, while she had to build up skill and became a dark, somewhat edgy loner. They grew up together, but they were always either at each other's throats or loving each other, it was never grey always black and white. They left their parents to go explore the world, and while on their second day away from home managed to lose all their food and water! Congratulations, Rockruff twins! During a battle, her brother was hurt and then they came across the place while looking for help and only joined since no other group would take both of them (only one of them), and they’d always stuck together before. Spoiler: Yamato/Schrift007 Species: Rockruff Name: Yamato Age: The same age as fang, but a couple minutes older Gender: Male Defining features(Example; scar or birthmark): He has a scars on both sides of his body that resemble claw marks. Personality: Unlike his sister, he is very laid back and he doesn't really take much seriously. He is really open, being a moron most times when first meeting someone. He likes to be a beacon of hope, being optimistic and sometimes lying to himself in the worst situations. Most times he will be laid back, to the point where he barely works hard. But involve his sister and he will go beyond 110%. Luckily he shares the same fighting spirit as his sister. For him, getting stronger is basic training, if he trained like his sister he would be strong enough to take on pokemon leagues above him. Three defining Skills: He was born naturally skilled He is very strong willed He is very strategical One of the rare things he has in common with his sister, is they both have amazing speed. But he takes it a step further with strength Personality flaw(s): He is a moron He can often be too laid back If he makes a mistake he often rains on himself like bricks. He often bottles everything in, before letting it all out in one massive bulk. Be it hate or grief Defining skill flaw(s): Because he is naturally skilled he barely trains or works hard Because he relies on speed and strength, he normally lacks in the defence department. If you hurt his sister he will target you above all else often going against what everyone says. Why did you really join?: He wanted to join a team that would accept both of them, not just him for his skill or just Fang for the amount of work she puts into working hard. Moveset: crunch, double team, iron tail, stone edge, rock tomb, quick attack, scary face, endure, counter ( the moves in bold he will learn if he evolves, when he does he will lose Iron Tail) Backstory: He had a normal family life, a loving family, he had a sibling and they all looked after each other. The weird thing about them? Well Yamato was born naturally skilled, like this kid was a natural often easily picking up new skills. However his sister was not so lucky, she had to work a lot harder just to keep up with him. Their relationship was often black and white, they were either at each other's throats or loving each other. When they came to age, they were allowed to go explore the world. Being new to the whole living on your own, they easily got lost, ran out of food and water and Yamato managed to get badly injured in battle. During this time they came across Haisha, unlike most guilds this place allowed them both to join. Spoiler: Kuze/JayTaku Species: Krokorok. Name: Kuze. Age: 16. Gender: Male. Defining Features: (Not sure if this counts or not but whatever) Kuze has multiple bandages all around his body. Most notably on his legs and arms. Personality: Aggressive and relentless. All you have to do is look at him the wrong way or speak to him in a certain tone, and he’ll just challenge you to a fight. And in most fights he tends to take things too far without initially realising, and even when he realises he might be going too far, he carries on anyway. He also will only fight if it’s for his own gain, or to simply make him look good, which is why he never really takes on opponents he knows he probably can’t beat. Three Defining Skills: He is a naturally skilled battler and is able to take on opponents much bigger than him, when he wants to. He’s exceptionally good at digging. He’s also fairly fast. Personality Flaws: He’s too aggressive, and confident for his own good. It’s hard for him to make friends unless they’re similar to him personality wise. He’s pretty inconsiderate towards other’s feelings. Defining Skill Flaws: Can’t really take hits very well, which is he relies and speed and power during fights. He’ll often use dirty tactics in order to win a battle he’s currently losing. Why did you really join?: He was told by his former gang members he needed to learn to work better in a group, and was then handed a flyer. They suggested he should go there, try and get to know people and start to work well with others instead of being so self cantered. At first he scoffed at it, but then came around after a while. Moveset: Crunch, Stone Edge, Foul Play, Dig, Dragon Claw and Sand Attack. Backstory: Despite being native to the desert, Kuze spent only a short time of his life there. After getting separated from his family during a huge sandstorm and not knowing where to go after that. Kuze just travelled all over, all on his own. This is what really toughened him up as he was constantly having to defend himself from other Pokemon. After a long while of travelling, he eventually came across a bamboo forest, where he was suddenly attacked by a Pancham. And as a fight was beginning, he went straight in for the attack using bite. And after the fight carried on for a while, another Pokemon came along, it wasn’t a Pangoro this time. The Pangoro stopped the fight and asked what was going, the young Sandile then explained, as the Pangoro then asked who Kuze was with, to which he replied: “Just me”. The Pangoro then lingered on a thought for a while, and then asked if he’d like to roll with him and his gang for a while, which the Pancham that attacked Kuze was also a part of. He happily said yes and then went along with them. After many years of living with the group of Pancham and Pangoro, Kuze eventually began to grow more cold and aggressive. Especially after he evolved. Everyone eventually picked up on this and mutually decided it would best for him to go somewhere else for a while, and for him to come back when he learns to become a better part of a team. Spoiler: Elliot/Le Marsouin Species: Elgyem | Cerebral Pokémon Name: Elliot Age: 14 Years old Gender: Male Defining features: He has a light layering of bandages around the top of his head, both of his arms, chest, and left foot from a fight not so long ago that he does not want to talk about. He is usually seen carrying around a silk satchel that stores his personal belongings and a few other items. Personality: Elliot is usually quiet, and tries to keep his cool when around others so as to not let his hotheaded behavior get the better of him. He tends to take things too literally, and is not as open as the average Pokémon may be when it comes to communication, tactics, planning, alliance attacks, and whatever else a guild would have in their daily activities. He is not as used to working and talking to others at the moment, due to something in his backstory greatly attributing to that. Three defining Skills: - Adept Catcher: Catches thrown items more easily, and can keep, or throw the item back. - Supporter: More effective with buffing itself and its team with positive stat increases from its moves. - Observant: Senses hidden treasure, traps, and monster rooms more easily. Personality flaw(s): - Reserved: Does not communicate as much, alliance attacks may be ineffective. - Brooder: Does not let the past go, often looks more at the negative side of things on other Pokémon. - Skeptical: Untrusting and wary of others, friendships and other positive relations build slower, and fall quicker. - Literalist: Takes everything with many handfuls of literacy. - Stubborn: Does not change as easily when attempting to align with other views and ideals. Defining skill flaw(s): - Poor Constitution: More susceptible to the risks of trauma, status conditions, and diseases. - Deserter: More likely to flee and attempt to escape from the dungeon if low on health, or being unable to defeat a Pokémon especially when the rest of the team has fainted. - Evo-stasis: Unable to evolve due to being exposed to the everstone's wonderous energy for too long. Why did you really join?: Elliot joined the team because he didn't want to be with the other big teams after being abandoned by his previous team not too long ago. He wanted to join the easiest team he could find since he could not work under the radar, much to his disappointment. Moveset: Psychic, Psybeam, Recover, Teleport, Light Screen, Reflect, Safeguard, Disable. Backstory: An Elgyem that had a normal, quiet life in his past, Elliot was trained primarily by his father. He mostly did chores around the house and garden, along with other minor tasks until his father wanted him to explore the world for himself. He reluctantly agreed, and had set off to find a rescue team after being unable to go alone into the dungeons after learning the hard way. He eventually found a rescue team to work with, though it seemed as if they had not established their name yet due to time not being as much on their side for the moment. A long discussion, and several missions and requests later, Elliot did not have much to write home about on what would be ultimately known as Team Neolight. However, one day, things did not seem to be the usual oddly enough. It was just the Elgyem with a Buizel and a Zoroark. The Zoroark made an illusion to conceal their getaway from the dungeon with the Buizel, leaving the Elgyem trapped in a dreadful room filled with many other Pokémon. Elliot would attempt to fight off as many of the Pokémon as he could, wondering why his team was not doing anything. After discovering that the realistic-looking figures were just mere dummies the moment a Chandelure attempted to attack it with a Flamethrower, Elliot decided to flee by teleporting away to another section of the floor. He decided to escape from dungeon after finding no signs of his team anywhere throughout the entirety of the floor. Elliot's injuries were hastily treated by a nurse after returning to the town with hidden tears. He promptly abandoned Team Neolight without a word to anyone. To this day, he does not want anything having to do with his former rescue team. And so after a good moment, Elliot discovered Team Haisha upon a brief search when he needed to quickly get back into the workforce. Spoiler: Lucia the Purrloin Species: Purrloin Name: Lucia, codename 'Tux', the two name thing will be explained later. Age: 17 Gender: Female Defining features: Scars all around her face, a woolly like tuxedo thing on her chest apparently made from Mareep and Wooloo wool. Personality: She talks even less than Daemon and is far less cocky. She doesn't let her feelings known, instead choosing to make sounds. This makes her difficult to read. Three defining Skills: Stealth, Speed, Climbing skills. Personality flaw(s): She's very needy if she's in a group and so does not work well if people are looking after her. Instead, she'll choose to work on her own. She often steals things from people. Defining skill flaw(s): She doesn't work well in a group and can be uncompromising and hardly speaks what she is intending to do. Why did you really join?: She's honestly looking for a place to stay and people who will actually be nice to her. Moveset: Sand attack, fury swipes, night slash, play rough, hone claws, assurance, thief, attract Backstory: She came from the same crooked army of thieves Daemon came from. It was an organisation designed to rob people of their needs. Her family were all exploited by them. She came to Haisha for a fresh start after they destroyed her home and killed her parents. Luckily, it collapsed. Despite this, she was on her own in the wilderness for several years. She was a member of a town once years ago but she was kicked out when she stole all the food and jewels in the area. She's a known thief but only because she wants more and was deprived as a young cat. Her real name is Lucia but her codename is 'Tux', a name adopted by the organisation when they saw the pattern on her chest. She briefly became a businesswoman for a few months before she accidently scammed her customers. Daemon is someone she knows from her past and for some reason he knows every little detail about her and uses it against her to exploit the young Purrloin. Spoiler: Daemon the Morgrem Species: Morgrem Name: Daemon Age: 29 Gender: Male Defining features: Scar above his right eye, bloody zig-zag cut on his chest. Personality: He seems friendly on the outside to those who see him and, can come off as shy. Ultimately, he hides his true self from most people... Three defining Skills: He appears to be good at survival and foraging, he's sneaky as stealthy, at the same time he seems strong enough in his attacks on his own, yet thrives when he is in a group. He's also quite cunning and intelligent. Personality flaw(s): He is untrustworthy, as he is always planning something in secret. He always ends up betraying those who have strong bonds with him. Defining skill flaw(s): He's not the strongest in the world and his logic can always be countered if he comes across someone more intelligent than him. Why did you really join?: Daemon wants to manipulate the group so that they can do what he commands. It's all part of his scheme to take over the world, though he hasn't told anyone apart from a select few about that. He saw the flyers as a new job for himself. He recognised the Sableye on the flyer and so he tells everyone the real reason he was there was because he thought he recognised the Sableye on the flyer. He thought he was another Sableye who normally wears sunglasses and so his cover story is that he 'accidently' joined the group to gain access to 'his friend' but now fights 'for justice'. Moveset: (I am not sure how many moves I should put on) False Surrender, Fake Out, Fake Tears, Play rough, Foul Play, Dark Pulse, Nasty Plot, Sucker Punch, Drain Punch, Shadow Claw, Thief Backstory: Daemon originally joined a mafia like organisation of crooks bent on taking over the world for themselves, led by villainous pokemon such as Gengar and Honchkrow as their Kingpins. Daemon, under another name, rose to power as part of a Conclave of Impidimp in the woods who served him loyally and so had great influence within this evil organisation but made himself secretive in what he did and so not many people knew there was even a Morgrem with as much power as he did. He DID have a Sableye friend who wore sunglasses who he uses as a coverstory and does not tell many people about that. A number of years later after rising to the top, the organisation collapsed and left a massive chasm in which only several teams remained. Daemon, as he went by, left his homelands, through the deserts and into the current location of Team Haisha after getting a brilliant ingenious idea when he received a flyer. He hopes to manipulate them one day after rising to the top but first he will have to get into Sableye's good books. Spoiler: Tony Species: Charjabug Name: Tony Age: 17 Gender: Male Defining features: Has a blue star on his back as a birthmark. Personality: A shy, quiet bug who can be scared of large crowds and prefers to be alone in his house. As expected, due to this he doesn't have many friends and the few he does have are just as introverted as he is so they don't meet up much. Three defining Skills: Suprisingly fast, can generate up to 700W of energy, a bit of a nerd. Personality flaw(s): Introverted and shy, so he wont hang around teams much. Defining skill flaw(s): Weak due to low training, will have problems among big crowds. Why did you really join?: He and his parents decided that he needed to work on his social skills, so after some searching for teams the small team known as Team Haisha seemed like a good place to send Charjabug for a while, to help both his team and himself in terms of social situations. Moveset: Thunder Wave, Electroweb, Spark, String Shot Backstory: Tony used to be your average kid who had a few friends and loved to hang out with them, and life was going pretty smoothly. However, once he began getting older his grades we're getting worse, as his parents got more and more strict on him resulting in some parental issues later down the line. To avoid the harsh punishments of his parents he began to study heavily in order to keep his grades well and his parents happy, however as a result he became introverted and rarely hung out with his friends, losing most of them and having to find new, introverted friends so he didn't lack too much social skills. After a while his parents noticed that he was very exhausted every day from all the studying he did and decided to give him a break by letting him go to Team Haisha so he could work on his social skills again and so he could get a bit of a break from his harsh overworking of himself. - A small note, im not the best with characters so the big backstory was to try and make up for it, hope this is ok to join in with. Also his name is a reference to the latin word of thunder. Spoiler: Joe and Moe Species: Doduo Name: Joe & Moe Age: 19 Gender: Male Defining features: One of the heads (Moe) is blind. He lost his eyes in an electrical accident Personality: They like to ease people's pain, both mental and physical. Moe, even though he doesn't have eyes, likes to massage other Pokemon as he has a knack for finding knots in sore muscles. Moe is also very goof at giving advice and has a calming voice. Joe is more of the tough type, he sticks up for Moe and makes sure he doesn't have anything wrong with him. Together they are perfect for rescuing other Pokemon. Three defining Skills: Mental fortitude, team work, speed Personality flaw(s): They are antisocial, and since Moe can't see he can be shy. Defining skill flaw(s): As Moe can't see, he relies on Joe to know where he is. Why did you really join?: To help save those in need, and to show people that even those with disabilities can help. Moveset: Acupressure, Roost, Peck, Double Hit, Safeguard, Protect, Quick Attack, Agility Backstory: Joe and Moe were raised in a Pokemon Lab on Poketopia Island. They were bred specifically to help arriving trainers carry their bags and other object (like a concierge). One fateful day, a power plant local to the Lab exploded sending a powerful surge through the Island. This caused Moe to lose both of his eyes and they both suffered minor burns. The burns healed, but Moe's vision was lost forever. They hid on a boat that eventually led them to Team Haisha. Spoiler: Other (I called this category other because I couldn't think of a better name. This is where all the Non-Haisha members go.) Spoiler: The Psychic Scoundrels/Red Gallade Spoiler: Adam the Kirlia Species: Kirlia Name: Adam Age: 16 Gender: Male Defining features: His 'hair' and 'skirt' are both shorter and he wears a brown, lightly tattered cloak big enough to cover his body. Personality: He is very laid back, loves gambling and will always talk back to anyone regardless of the consequences. He is also a cunning thief who like to outsmart his opponents or help him escape in case a theft goes wrong. However, he is kindhearted as well as he tends to give some of his 'earnings' to poor Pokemon that need it more than him and he cares about the lives of anyone he sees as his comrades, mainly his partner in crime Three defining Skills: Stealth, Creativity, Adept reflexes. Personality flaw(s): As someone who likes to gamble, he isn't always prepared if a bet goes South even if he's careful on what chances to take. Defining skill flaw(s): He isn't exactly the most durable being around which is why he focuses more on speed and dodging. Moveset: Psychic, Draining Kiss, Magical Leaf, Double Team, Teleport, Protect, Fire Punch (Taught from his mentor) Backstory: Not much is known about who his family used to be, given how he was taken in by a once notorious Blaziken thief who raised Adam as his own, teaching him how to survive in this seemingly unforgiving world and those who would wish to harm him. One day, Adam's mentor left suspiciously and never came back, the only thing he left behind was a little note which only said. 'Now you're ready.' Now Adam roams the world for riches to steal and ways to get even stronger as well as find out what happened to his mentor. Spoiler: Monica the Gothorita Species: Gothorita Name: Monica Age: 16 Gender: Female Defining features: Nothing different from average, but she wears a short cloak and a belt with several bags to carry things. Personality: Monica is somewhat happy go lucky and almost views everything as a game. She is very supportive when it comes to helping Adam who she secretly harbors feelings for. When it comes to treasure, she will do whatever she can to steal it but is aware of the limits of how much she should steal or what she should steal. Although she is aware about how the world works and how some people behave, promising herself not to be too naive. Three defining Skills: Stealth, Perception, Adept reflexes. Personality flaw(s): Her bubbly attitude can sometimes make her less aware on how serious some situations may be until it's almost too late. Defining skill flaw(s): Like Adam, she isn't exactly durable. Moveset: Psychic, Hypnosis, Thunder Wave, Rock Slide, Protect, Shadow Ball, Dark Pulse Backstory: Monica was rejected by her parents and had to either beg or steal to survive, she mainly focused on the latter as her Psychic abilities yielded better results... even if it made her hated by people. One day she attempted to pickpocket a hooded figure who was none other than Adam who caught her in the act, instead of hating or punishing her like everyone else, Adam taught her how to do it right and stole together ever since.
