The Misadventures of Bartholomew Peary

Name: Bartholomew Peary

Gender: Male

Age: 21

Class: Viking (Major-Fighting; Minor-Ice; Weakness-Fairy)

Appearance: His father looks very much the part of a Viking, standing in at 6’5” with a monstrous but surprisingly well braided blond beard. On the other hand, Barry’s mother barely pushes past the 4-foot mark. As luck would have it, Barry inherited his father’s glorious blond hair and his mother’s astoundingly short stature. Coming in at 5’7” (with 2 of those inches coming from his mop of hair) means that he is by the shortest Peary to be born in 10 generations (give or take). Without his black rim glasses, he would be blind, but he more often than not seems to misplace them. He wears a worn out pair of combat boots and has his cargo pants tucked inside them. On most days he puts on a button-up shirt, tie, a brown vest, and his grandfather’s brown leather jacket (I got my inspiration from this picture, but, you know, on someone younger). In extreme cold weather he dons a jacket similar to this. And to complete his outfit, he makes sure to always have his waterproof black leather backpack.

Personality: Although Barry dresses like a pompous, self-centered hipster, this does not reflect his personality. His outfit comes from his fascination with the golden days of adventuring. Since his earliest days, he has been taking fashion advice from his grandfather. Against the warnings of his father (who was just a boring engineer), Barry would sit for hours and listen to the overly romanticized accounts of his grandfather’s voyages across the Pokémon world. Barry took this all in with awe, and even though he later learned that many of these stories were borrowed from actual, successful adventurers, it didn’t hamper his enthusiasm. In fact, it only strengthened his drive to go out and find some long-forgotten treasure. He has an almost delusional belief that he will bring honor back to his house thanks to the romanticism that his grandfather instilled in him. His tendency to get lost in the details causes him to space out and often miss important details (or dangers) in the environment around him. This also causes him to treat schedules and appointment times with a great flexibility, as he often gets lost in thought and loses track of time. This also means that he is constantly rushing around, unfortunately.

Background: Bartholomew comes from a long line of unlucky adventurers hailing from Snowpoint City. Many Peary’s have tried to discover a hidden wonder of the world, and every one of them has met with absolute failure. Whether dying trying to cross the barren tundra of Sinnoh by Drifblim, or traveling halfway around the globe to find no evidence of any mythical flying Eveelution, the Peary explorers have continually disgraced their family name. Mention the name Peary in circles of respected fortune hunters and you will be greeted with either laughter, insults, or pity. Sometimes all of them at once. Yet this doesn’t put off young Bartholomew in any way. In fact, he has dedicated his life to restoring some sense of dignity to his family’s name. And he’s doing it the only way that any Peary can – by scouring the globe for the discovery of a lifetime.

Starter Group: 2

Douglas
Male Snover

Level: 5

Powder Snow, Leer, Razor Leaf, Seed Bomb

Aquired: Starter Pokemon

Bio:
On a crisp morning in Snowpoint, a ten year-old Barry was sanctioned by his grandfather to go on his very first adventure. ("It's about time you discover something, you little shit!") After trudging through the pristine snow for hours, Barry stumbled upon a grove hidden behind towering pine trees. To his surprise, he was gazing upon a village of Snover nestled into the mountains. The group of Snover seemed to be equally as shocked. They had apparently never laid eyes on a human before, and were examining Bartholomew as thoroughly as he was studying them. Eventually, Barry began to grow numb from the cold and quickly realized that the sun was setting on the Sinnoh tundra. He scampered off back home, eager to share his discovery with his grandfather. But when he returned to the city he realized that the Pokemon had been trailing him. He took the curious creature into his house and let him stay the night, and even returned him to the village the next morning. Yet it followed Barry into the city again, so Barry decided to guide the Snover as it explored the town in great detail. With some advice from his grandfather, ("You can't ditch him now, kid. He's your Short Round!") Barry decided to name him Douglas and inaugurate him into the Peary family.

Personality: Douglas is highly curious, even more so than Barry. More of the strong but silent type, Douglas minds his own business for the most part. But when confronted with a mystery (or even anything remotely interesting) Douglas will wander off and to discover more. Yet he is fiercely loyal to Barry and will eventually make his way back to him.
