Name: Fitzgerald "Fitz" Sardone

Gender: Male

Age: 12

Class: Trainer (Normal major, no minor, no weaknesses)

Appearance: Fitz is a bit average for someone his age, standing at 4'5" and is slightly thin-statured due to not being able to eat much. He wears a tattered gray beanie in which the top part has a small hole on it, revealing a bit of his messy black hair which is short enough that it barely touches his ears and cover his forehead but not his brown eyes. His clothes are two sizes too big for him, as most of it came from his uncle. He wears a surprisingly clean white shirt which a large old brown coat that's used to completely cover his hands before being trimmed a bit so that it would be more convenient for his hands. He wears a baggy brown shorts that reaches just halfway between his knees and feet. He wears a pair of new hiking boots which was given to him by his uncle before the boy left.

Personality: Fitz is generally a very timid boy who mostly keeps to himself, talking only when he needs to talk while subconsciously avoiding having to talk to people as much as possible. He is by no means unfriendly, but it can take a while for him to completely open up to a person. Fitz is however, very hardworking in whatever he does and can be a bit of a determinator when the situation arises, refusing to give up as long as there is even a slight possibility of success. Fitz is also very caring towards his Pokemon and often confides to them when he needs to let out his thoughts.

Background: Fitz was barely aware of everything when the disaster had happened, as he was still two years old at that time. The young boy barely knew his parents, as they had both died in the Disaster ten years ago and thus was orphaned at a very young age. Fitz was then quickly taken in by Daniel, one of his uncles, and since then has been raised by him in Viridian City. Being unable to go to school, much of Fitz's knowlegde about the world came from his uncle who acts like a parental substitute to him. Like many of the survivors, the two of them didn't exactly have an easy life and did quite a bit of struggling just to survive yet both of them remained content with what they do have. At the age of twelve, Fitz's uncle had decided that the boy should see the world with his own eyes, to know more about the after effects of the disaster first-hand, and to teach him independence, and thus had decided to set him out on an adventure.

New character. Deleted the old one's thread.

Name: Anja Luo

Gender: Female

Age: 15

Class: Hunter (Major: Flying, Minor: Steel, Weakness: Dragon)

Appearance:



(I can write up a formal appearance description if you need me to but I hope the drawing is ok?)

Personality: Anja describes herself as "super hardcore, in every way". And she is, indeed, super hardcore in every way. She has a great passion for gaming of all kinds, flying, fashion, and Pokemon battles. She doesn't really care about other people unless she knows them well. Anja jokes around a lot with people she doesn't know and acts even more intense and excited with them than she normally is. It's difficult to get Anja to shift into "serious" mode. She tends to take everything as a joke at least a little bit. She is responsible and capable, but most of the time she doesn't want to seem that way. Her ideal personality and image for herself is somebody who is intense, competent, and well-known, but not necessarily respected. Anja is very much able to ignore other people's opinions of her because she knows that ultimately it only matters what she thinks of herself; however, this leads to some situations where Anja disregards actual important advice about herself.

Anja tends to avoid tender emotions and feelings unless they're coated in at least 12 levels of irony, and she knows that she can be pretty flippant and rude a lot. Her motto is to live life to the fullest, every day.

Anja is intense, strong-willed, good humored, a risk taker, fashionable, responsible, competent, smart, stubborn, selfish, confrontational, conceited, materialistic, and bad at expressing feelings of genuine concern or sadness.

Background: Anja remembers almost nothing from before the disasters, as she was too young. She lived in Pewter City her whole life and her family remained there after the disasters even though their home was badly damaged. They relocated within the city and soon had their own apartment to call home again.

Anja never had problems finding friends growing up. She always had a large posse of kids she was hanging out with, though she never had a "best" friend. An outsider looking in at her life might call it tragic; Anja never really had a strong, close bond with anybody growing up. Her parents worked tirelessly in the aftermath of the disasters to ensure that their single daughter would still be able to have a good life, but in their efforts neglected to check in with their daughter emotionally. None of her friends from the neighborhood or from school ever developed a true bond with her. As the years went by, friends constantly drifted in and out of her life, and she grew to value herself and her own wellbeing over others' because there was nobody to do it for her.

Anja had few ties keeping her in Pewter, besides her mom and dad, whom she always recognized for the hard working, dedicated, and loving parents they were. But eventually it was time for her to leave to make her own life and story for herself. Her parents decided to pay for a guide to take her over the mountain path to Blackthorn (she wanted to do it herself) where she could start fresh in the Johto region.

Thinking about it, we should probably do that in case of Abra (Teleport) or Meditite (Bide, Meditate) rolls too.

Name: Alice Hope
Gender: Female
Age: 20
Class: Youngster [Major: Ground | Minor: Normal | Weakness: Fire]
Appearance: With a pale complexion and petite stature, Alice is fair and dainty, standing at only four feet and seven inches, she certainly looks the part of youngster even if that isn't entirely true anymore. Her blonde hair almost reaches her waist, with natural waves and highlights, a full fringe and bangs. Her weak blue eyes mean she is almost always wearing her glasses, and her nails are almost always in a manicured state. Her teeth are slightly overcrowded.

Personality: The sole daughter of an academy professor and engineer, Alice is knowledgable and spoiled, leading to a selfish streak and a love for the materialistic, as well as an ego to boot, used to being praised for grades and for both her cute appearance and voice. She is ambitious, and whilst raised to be well-mannered and having a strong sense of identity and beliefs, when Alice wants something, she can throw this away to ensure she gets it. Her personality is full of contradictions - lusty and perverse but shy and easily scared off; fiercely passionate but emotionally stunted to the point of being nearly incapable of feeling guilty. She is also lazy, and her energy tends to be conserved until something catches her attention (like a person or Pokemon she likes, for example), and likes to do everything at her own pace. Despite all these things, her charisma makes her a good leader or follower, and many depend on her for advice. However, Alice's life might improve if she just followed her own or others' guidance for a change...

Background: Hailing from the hot region of the Orange Islands, Alice was an outdoorsey person from her youth. She spent a lot of time playing amongst nature when not at her academy, working in the libraries or research areas with a keen love for learning. Her small size made her a target for bullies, but intelligence and wit meant that she fought them off, and combined with her cuteness and the fact that one of the teachers was her mother, Alice soon rose to be part of the popular clique.

The confidence this built was shattered at the age of ten by the disasters, an experience which still gives her nightmares to this day. Alice fears going out alone, and all natural disasters or even simple things like storms or heavy rain, blizzards and the like. Confining herself to the home that her parents escaped to in Johto, she spent a lot of time admiring celebrities in old magazines, books and working recordings as another escapism, and this has leaked to her real life persona as well. Alice began 'marketing' herself as an idol - writing and making songs with whatever help she could, learning to act, setting up her own radio and generally being an entertainer to distract herself and others at a time of need. It's given herself a fan following which she hopes to keep, but Alice also realises that at the age of twenty, perhaps it's time to leave home and rediscover herself, to try and reclaim the bravery and parts of herself the disasters caused her to lose...

Name: Erick Harrigan
Gender: Male
Age: 19
Class: Warlock (Major: Dark, Minor: Psychic, Weakness: Fighting)
Appearance: Most of his clothes were ruined in the floods that disparaged Viridian City, though he somehow managed to save his dark green vest in addition to the forest green shirt, blue jeans, and tennis shoes he had on when he left town. He has short, blond hair and green eyes and is somewhat short, reaching 5'9" in height and weighing 194 lb. He keeps a broken pocketwatch in his vest with a picture of his family inside it as a constant reminder of them. He also wears glasses, though the left lens betrays some slight damage due to the flooding. Should he find himself in colder temperatures, he only has a blue sweatjacket with a hood to protect himself from the weather.
Personality: Before the disaster, he was cheerful, with many friends, human and Pokemon. Now, much of that light, though not all, has disappeared from him as tragedy and heartache ravaged his soul. He finds himself regrettably growing irritable as his once positive outlook on life has diminished and he is simply doing what he can to survive, though his purpose for doing so has yet to be discovered. He wonders from time to time why he doesn't just fling himself towards some hungry Pokemon and let it kill him mercifully. Then again, that would ruin one of the last good-looking outfits around these parts along with him, so for the sake of his clothes he trudges on.
Background: Erick had everything a kid could ever want: a loving mother, a cool father, a brother making a name for himself in a faraway land, and over 100 different Pokemon he could play with. Thanks to the association with his father's Pokemon he could feel a deep appreciation for them and gained an affinity toward Dark-type and Psychic-type Pokemon. He was nine years old when the Disaster hit Viridian City, and he was in school when he and the other students evacuated and took shelter with other townsfolk in Mt. Silver. But Erick's mother and father were not among them, neither were any of their Pokemon. When it was finally safe to return, he went back to his house to discover that the majority of the family's Pokemon didn't survive the floods, and his parents' most trusted companions were missing along with them. Only Reuniclus, Shiftry, Hydreigon, and Gallade were found alive and able to keep him company. He was given a chance to call his brother far away before the phone service was cut off completely, but all attempts to reach him mysteriously failed.
He was forced to spend the next ten years wondering what had happened to his family, though his parents were presumed dead. Hydreigon lived for a year before being euthanized after going on a rampage and being subdued by the other three Pokemon, though it sadly cost Gallade his life in the effort. Shiftry and Reuniclus were able to live out the rest of their days with Erick before Reuniclus died of a plague that swept the city four years after the Disaster, claiming many of Erick's friends in addition to Reuniclus, and Shiftry of old age another five years after that. It has been a year after Shiftry passed away, and Erick finds himself almost at the end of his rope, all alone and barely able to take care of himself, much less assist in efforts to revive the city.

I figured I was going to be fine with a Bronzor... but then I realized it would terrible at convincing Erick to get out of the rut he's in. ^^; Too bad, it was even going to start with Charge Beam... It's a good Pokemon, but I would like a reroll, please!

Name: Dan Yougirasu Jones (simply known as Yougirasu)
Gender: Male
Age: 21
Class: Ritualist (Major: Dark, Minor: Ghost, Weakness: Steel)
Appearance: Although everyone might describe Yougirasu a different way when it comes to his appearance, his look isn't unlikable. He happens to fit in to most crowds, with a standard height, build and hair colour. His height is never specific, sitting around the middle of five foot seven and five foot eight, making it a sore topic, but his clothing hides a slim, athletic body with somewhat broad shoulders. His hair though, appears different depending on his mood. It currently has a long section to the back, settling around shoulder length, whilst the sides and fringe appear more maintained, with his fringe settling just above his eyebrows.
He often chooses to either leave his hair flowing freely, letting the wind catch it and sculpt it to its will or to keep it in check. To do so, he takes a piece of black ribbon and wraps it around the hair at the back, close to the base of his neck to gather most of the stray hairs from the sides, tucking the ribbon inside itself tightly to keep it from unraveling. His most noticeable feature, if you get to see it, is a large, noticeable scar on his right arm. The scar, coming from a burn, wraps itself around most of his left arm, running down the far side from the shoulder until it fades to a point around the midpoint of his forearm.
Mixing this feature with his personality, he's often seen wearing a mix of clothes to cover his torso. It's most common to see him wearing a decent jacket, either brown or black, or a simple long sleeved top. Although, on the flip side, he can be seen wearing a short, stylish shirt or possibly even a vest. But this is most likely during the height of summer. The main staples of his clothing as his easily cleanable or replaceable jeans (they're always mucky by the end of the day but spotless each morning) and his thick, durable boots. Currently, he also carries a scarf around with him (being on a journey, he felt it seemed appropriate) that he either wraps around his neck to keep the cold away or leaves hanging, draped over his shoulders. The scarf itself is dark black but with stripes of various shades of red, brown and grey running from end to end.
Personality: At first appearance, Yougirasu can come across as a rather timid, relaxed person and generally too nice for his own good. However, this is because he's a rather flexible person who generally prefers to go with the flow when it comes to everything around him, meaning that he'll try not to make an issue over someones suggestions although that isn't always possible. However, deep down he's rather different. His inner personality is much more unpredictable, just not that noticeable, and can be mistaken for being contrary rather than anything else. This unpredictability manifests itself in the way that Yougi reevaluates everything on a daily basis, making each day individual to the rest.
His fashion sense is an extension of his personality, especially with the fact that he's often seen wearing thick, heavy, concealing clothes in the middle of summer. This clothing proves useful towards Yougirasu's sensitivity towards his scar. He generally prefers not to talk about or how he came to receive it, so keeping it covered helps prevent the issue from being raised. Except for the days he decides he doesn't feel like covering it up, provided he doesn't get too cold with so little clothing to keep him warm.
Background: Yougirasu's history can be considered to be long and convoluted, having had a challenging time with things since childhood. Yet, it was his experiences in his mid to late teens that shaped his background and personality the most. He spent his teens, having left school and training in his chosen career, taking plenty of time to be trained and gain the skills needed to succeed. However, after leaving to get a serious job, the career quickly fell out of favour for him, leaving him to pick up the pieces and find a second career. The second job attempt didn't go any better than the first as he had such a hard time simply getting into work that he knew he could do, meaning that things rarely got any better even when he had a job.
As a result, he decided to simply stop, sit down and work on the first thing that came to mind until he found something that he enjoyed doing. As it happened, shortly after he made this decision, he broke his glasses to the point where the arm snapped clean off and he couldn't get a replacement pair because they no longer made the frames he'd picked out despite having recently purchased them (he's since had laser eye surgery). With no glasses and very little to pay for a new frame, he decided to put his free time to good use and try making his own.

Over a couple of weeks, he built a petite furnace in his yard and managed to procure the tools necessary for dealing with hot metal. He then visited a local scrapyard to gather suitable metal, preferable both durable and lightweight. He spent months working on frames, dealing with several failures as he attempted to work everything out. Finally though, he had a simple frame design that seemed to be sturdy and looked nice. The stylish pair had arms made from thin wiry strands of metal that were weaved together randomly until they became the grips at the end. The basic frame quickly found itself immortalized on his new blog, something he'd thrown together to chronicle his attempts, before they were painted, had the lenses fitted and were ready to be worn. He quickly got the hang of making more frames and set himself a little challenge, which he advertised and recorded on his blog, which was to make 12 individual frames, each suited for a different month, within a year.

After this year passed and he succeeded in his challenge, his blog and designs gained him more and more attention and soon, he found himself making expensive, unique frames for noteworthy people. This helped fund a larger, more suitable area for him to work in, allowing him to prepare more metal when needed so he was never in short supply. But with popularity came demand, and soon enough numerous companies were clamoring for his designs, requesting him to make something unique for their customers and then to produce each frame especially tailored to the wearers needs. He ended up doing exactly what he'd been doing from the start, but on a much, much grander scale. This led to Yougirasu spending 7 hours a day sat by his forge for several months, barely taking a day off, just to keep up with the demands that everyone was putting on him.

By the time the first year had passed in the service of several companies, the pressure began to mount again as many of them began demanding a new frame design, which was to be made alongside their existing design. This proved to be too great for Yougirasu, who'd recently spent his hours by the heat of the furnace musing over everything that had happened over the past couple of years. He'd started out doing something that it turned out he enjoyed, but now people were demanding more from him than he could possibly provide. He'd even spent so long by his furnace that he couldn't stand to be without a coat when he was away from it, even in the middle of summer. So, he decided that he'd had enough of the companies sapping the life from him. As each company in turn decided to demand another design, he ended his relationship with them, letting them know that over the past 12 months they'd all asked too much from him and he couldn't endure another 12 months with even more work to do. However, one company took a different approach and sought to reward him for his hard efforts. Comforted by this, Yougi kept working with them and tried to come up with a design for them before the summer. But his efforts had come too late.
After a year of relentless work, Yougi had given his life to something he'd once enjoyed not realising that it was his experiences in life that inspired his designs. But now, he had nothing to give. He had no imagination and, as a result, expected the company to be upset by this. Instead, they offered various suggestions to allow him to get out, experience things and gain fresh inspiration, even if it meant not being able to use his frames or simply produce one of his simpler designs themselves. Yougirasu appreciated this and looked through everything they'd suggested before two areas caught his eye. They were struggling regions that had been hit by numerous natural disasters and whilst they were operational, they were looking for travelers to visit and offer whatever they could. With some support from the company (he had no idea what he might need or what clothes to take) he set off on his travels to reach the regions, a shiver running down his spine as he left, seeming to know that he'd be away from the scorching heat for a very long time.

Name: Bill Darius
Gender: Male
Age: 21
Class: Archaeologist (Major: Water, Minor: Rock and Weakness: Electricity)
Appearance: Bill is about 5'11". He has a fair complexion surrounding his arms and face, however, the rest of his body appears to be paler in comparison. His red hair is often very messy as a result of lack of grooming. Occupying his face is a pair of dark chocolate eyes at the either side of his small, thin nose. He has very thin, and slightly long lips underneath the nose with no sign of a mustache, beard or even stubble on his face. Bill's face has a few freckles that occupy random places over his face. He is slightly muscular in the arms and legs, although slightly thin everywhere else. His hair has obvious bits of dirt in it from his travels and lack of cleanliness in general.

As change clothing is something that isn't really needed for survival in his eyes, Bill wears one set of clothing. His pair of baggy green pants coated with several pockets that are often used to store precious items such as medicine and dried food. His short sleeved blue T-shirt covered with a few holes and has a few dirt and grass stains occupying the full shirt (as well as a faded picture of what appears to be a Squirtle, albeit it is hard to make out, a pair of old worn-out hiking boots. Over top his shirt, he wears an olive-green vest that has three pockets (two on the left side, one on the right), although he typically leaves these pockets empty, as they are small and when they are occupied, they rub against his chest uncomfortably. Finally, a pair of yellow leather gloves. Unlike the rest of his clothes though these appear to be brand new and never before used.

As for items outside of his clothing, Bill keeps a slightly large green backpack with him that seems to be filled with excavating tools that sometimes stick out the top pocket, such as a shovel, pick-ax or even a small feather duster. He also carries a canteen filled with (mostly sterilized) river water.

Personality:
Most of Bill's personality can be summed up in one word: curiousity. He almost always wonders what the purpose of many things big and small are, no matter the consequences of actually knowing the details behind it. However, as an impatient person, even to fighting random people, he often stays in the background and allows the others to fight till he can find a way around it. That being said, he will not abandon a friend, especially one in need, and, if need be, Bill steps in with his pokemon and starts his battling style, reacting to the opponent's movements. He tries to keep a cool head, but can often get fired up, especially in theoritical territories like the god Pokemon and whatnot. Bill loves archaeology and history. He studies about old fossils, civilizations, you name it. If it existed and had a major impact on society, he knows many of the basic details of it.

Background: Bill was born and raised on Fortune Island of the Sevii Islands, a chain of islands that was near. He was born under a historian and a lab aide, although his father was often away on business to study various artefacts throughout the world. Not that Bill minded all that much, as when his father did return home from time to time, he always brought pictures of these artefacts. This helped Bill's love for archaeology grow and blossom. So much so, that as he was growing, he'd often want to head to the ruins to the southern part of the island, although the first time he did, he went without notifying anyone. He didn't see anything wrong with this, but after he returned, he got scolded for wondering into dangerous territory without adult supervision. Most of the times after that, he'd bring his mother along to see them.

He grew up to be a happy person, a lot like his father. One day, when Bill was just turning 11, Bill's father decided to take him on a small business trip to see some of the artefacts first-hand. However, as they approached Vermillion City's port, disaster struck. A violent storm hit, and the boat they were on starting swaying back and forth, throwing Bill overboard. As he was drowning he saw a lightning bolt hit the ship itself, and he watched in horror as it sank into the depths before he passed out. A couple days later, he found himself in a hospital in Vermillion City, where he learned he was the sole survivor of that ship, as far as they could tell (no way for them to search bodies at that time). The storm was still raging on with no signs of stopping for another five days. During this time, all the Pokemon left their trainers and many of the boats were destroyed, so Bill was stuck in Kanto with no way to return back to the Sevii Islands at that time.

The first few days, he did mope about his situation. However, when he learned that this wasn't just happening to him, but rather to all over the world, from the drought in Johto to the storms in Kanto, he wondered just what could have caused all this. No explanation was found, but he knew there had to be one, so as time passed, he decided to dedicate his life to finding the answer to this mystery and stop it from ever happening again. He currently resides in one of the refugee camps outside of Vermillion, trying desperately to find answers, but at the same time, surviving this onslaught.
