/>Surface condition [Unstable] />Life [Negative] />Possibility [There is a 0.1% possibility life can exist] The girl sighed, placing her head in her hands while her elbows were rested on the desk. A small dragon-type Pokemon nudged her as it sat in her lap. “It seems like there isn’t a solution, Kiju. It makes me worry...” she said to it. Well, I’m sure you’re curious. Allow me to explain. Around 83 years ago, the atmosphere of the planet (Earth? Who knows what it is) became unstable. Life couldn’t be supported and everyone was forced underground. At first the cities were grand, but then time passed and they started to deteriorate. Homes became more rugged looking and violence was an acceptable way of life. A few, with the help of Pokemon, ventured up on the surface to collect supplies. They were trained to survive up there with their partners and were later named the Sunlighters, for they were the only few to ever touch the light. It isn’t simply a no risk job. Sometimes they don’t make it back, only their Pokemon. Others are the scientists. They attempt to find a way to restore their home on the surface. Recently, their research had been on a pause. They had hit a roadblock that they have now spent years on trying to get around. The only hope for now is to hope the atmosphere fixes itself. Everyone else has jobs to support the community. They’re unlimited, and many have jobs none have heard of before. Engineers, doctors, thieves, anything is possible. The only limit is skill and lack of sunlight. Welcome to the Tunnels, we hope you enjoy your stay here. EXTRA! Tunnels takes place in a small town called Firefly. This is where your character will either live or be visiting. The town will grow with your own imaginations and is created with our own team effort. Later, I’ll add a section for all the details of Firefly. In fact, you could even get started with it in your bios. The jobs are a wip. If you have a cool idea for one, don't be afraid to tell me! I'd love for this to be a community involved rp, beyond just replies and such. Town Layout There's a little place off to the side which looks like a little village, this is where the scientists mainly work and live. It is still close enough to Firefly's boundaries to be considered a part of it. On your way to the science village, there's a path leading to the surface that Sunlighters use. It's normally closed and only open for Sunlighters. There's a hidden laboratory located in the science village. Previously abandoned, it is now inhabited by a girl and her four Pokemon. Over on the eastern side of Firefly, it's littered with broken equipment, damaged houses (more than usual), and faulty wiring. With a lack of engineers in that part of town, it can be a gold mine to those who go there.

Name: Age (Optional for Pokemon): Gender: Job: Species (If Pokemon): Appearance: Personality: History (Optional): Pokemon Team (If Human): Move Set (If Pokemon): My characters Name: Bezai Age: 25 Gender: Female Job: Scientist Appearance: Short, ginger hair, brown eyes, freckles, and pale skin. She wears a long, button-down white shirt with long sleeves; red shorts; medium-length white socks; baby blue Mary Janes (thanks Google); and black rimmed glasses Personality: Looks for a solution to everything, very generous, acts without thinking, low self-confidence History: TBA Pokemon Team: Gible, Flaaffy, two incubating mystery eggs Name: Kiju Age: Roughly 16 Gender: Male Job: None, Bezai refused to give her first Pokemon up Species: Gible Appearance: Kiju has a slightly icy exterior. Bezai found out it was because Kiju was part Avalugg that he inherited the trait. His blue stripes are slightly more lighter colored and his red belly slightly darker. Personality: Kiju is rather calm. He often keeps Bezai on track and is more efficient than the human in all reality. He worries about her and acts like a parent sometimes, which can be quite humorous. History: TBA Move Set: Double-Edge, Dragon Rage, Sand Tomb, Sandstorm, Flamethrower Name: Jupiter Age: Roughly 19 Gender: Not specified (though Jupiter is male) Job: Helps to power Bezai's equipment Species: Flaaffy Appearance: Jupiter's horns are blue, like Mareep's face color. It has a lot more wool which, due to being part Aggron, is slightly hard. Its orb on its tail is the same color as Mareep's, though closely resembles the color of the planet Jupiter (at least the majority of it). Personality: Jupiter has anxiety, something that prohibits it from doing a lot of things. It's very cautious and will never take risks for a reward. Most joke that the only reason it has been alive for this long is because it's forced to do things. History: TBA Move Set: Cotton Spore, Iron Tail, Thunder Shock, Charge, Heal Bell, Substitute Name: Marko Age: 26 Gender: Male Job: Sunlighter Appearance: Marko has messy black hair and seemingly gray eyes. He has a red, thin jacket with two blue and white lines. Underneath is a white shirt stained from many ventures outside. He wears a simple pair of jeans with blue and white tennis shoes. Personality: Marko is very energetic, and his Pokemon, for the most part, match this energy. He's not afraid to take risks, and often tries things that are rather out of the box. History: TBA Pokemon Team: Pikachu, Chandelure, Garchomp WIP Name: Dongo, Don for short Age: TBA Gender: Male Job: Protects Marko on the surface Species: Pikachu Appearance: An average Pikachu usually covered with mud. His fur is stained a slight brown-yellow color due to dry mud. Personality: Don matches Marko in his energy for sure. Often times he'll have the urge to jump in a good mud puddle due to some Mudsdale in him. Often times he'd make really bad decisions, even worse than what Marko would make. History: TBA Move Set: Bide, Slam, Electro Ball, Double Team, Thunder, Rain Dance Name: Lys Age: TBA Gender: Female Job: Helps the team to see in the dark at nightfall Species: Chandelure Appearance: Her flames can almost turn into magma (Slugma) and her eyes are yellow-orange. Other than that she's a normal Chandelure. Personality: Lys is probably the only calm one on the team. She's very patient and often gets dragged into the other three's schemes. When they do this, she still doesn't hesitate to defend them from trouble. History: TBA Move Set: Heat Wave, Hex, Pain Split, Protect, Overheat, Ember Name: Shayu Age: TBA Gender: Female Job: Helps Marko to get back underground if he cannot otherwise, or just to provide a safe place for him Species: Garchomp Appearance: Shayu is actually a shiny Garchomp. Being female, she does not have a notch in her fin. Also, her skin feels like a protective plating giving her increased defense (Shelgon). Personality: Shayu is a rather fiery Pokemon. Always wanting to battle, she's the most determined one on her team. She often battles with Don, who she views like a little brother.
