Probopass Axel King's Notes

Name: Axel King
Gender: Male
Age: 29
Class: Metallurgist (Major Ground, Minor Steel // Weakness Grass)

Appearance: A 5ft 9, slim young man with short light brown hair and three blonde strands falling on the left side of his face, hazel eyes and light-skinned, fair complexion. He has an easy smile, captivating in the eyes of many, and likes to dress sharply even in these troubled times: his clothing of choice is a pristine white suit with matching pants, a light gray shirt underneath, a thin-fabric light blue scarf around his neck and impeccably polished brown shoes. New to having Pokémon of his own, he treasures them above all else, and insists on keeping their housing devices spotless; for that purpose, he always dons a pair of white gloves during battles, whenever handling his partners' PokéBalls is necessary.

Personality: A charming man with a silver-tongue and a knack for always putting on a hell of a show, Axel's persona was entirely shaped by his life experiences, and despite his relatively young age, he's a well-traveled man. Exposed to fame and success from an early age, Axel grew used to the spotlight and the attention that came with it; for several years, he was a public figure admired by many, thanks both to his accomplishments and his magnetic personality. Hailing from a region where displays are infinitely more valued than actual outcomes, Axel became the consummate showman in every aspect of his life - understanding the power and influence that came from being a successful entertainer, he worked on his image and charm for years, and it paid off big time. Choosing the life of a Trainer lead him to numerous victories and, eventually, the title of Champion at a time when Unova's professional circuit lacked a legitimate figurehead. Axel King became that icon, and held his position for a considerable time, always putting on a spectacle with each of his title defenses - much to the delight of the Unovan crowds, to whom flash always outweighed substance. Axel became known not only for his uninhibited displays of wealth, from his clothing to the special effects employed in his Championship bouts, but also for his carefree demeanour and risk-taking attitude – anything to draw cheers from a crowd. However, a life-changing event forced him to step away from the arenas prematurely, and it was then that Axel was confronted with the need to actually improve his skills, more so than his flair. Moved by something bigger than himself for the first time in his life, the previously-shallow Axel is now discovering the true value of humility and hard work, although he still retains his penchant for sweet-talking and spectacle-giving whenever the chance arises... because, even in a ravaged land, or perhaps all the more so in one, the ability to entertain and endear is a priceless thing.

Background: Axel was born in Castelia City; son of Richard King, and elder brother of Gavin, the three lived a privileged life in Unova for several years, thanks to Richard’s fortune as a spearhead of the Poké Ball development industry. At age seventeen, Gavin decided to travel to the northernmost region of the Pokémon World, Heiml, and enlist in the East Division of the Heimlan Army; Axel chose to stay in his homeland, and pursue the dream of becoming Pokémon Champion. During his journey, he received word of his father's passing in a shipwreck during a trip between Unova and Johto, but he didn't waver in his quest - Richard would have wanted his son to keep going, no matter what, and grieving was never in young Axel's nature. If anything, the loss fueled his drive even further, and he destroyed the Gym Circuit on his path to the Unovan League. His passion and unorthodox tactics earned him quick notoriety, and it wasn't long before he earned a cult following on his road to the Championship. His battling style, using entirely unpredictable teams in each match, earned him the nickname of "Wild Card", and the youngster became a regional sensation - after all, battling in Unova was a big deal, and every significant match was televised and broadcast in at least one of the numerous channels dedicated to the professional circuit coverage. When Axel dethroned Iris, the interim Champion, Wild Card’s reign began and Axel’s fame exploded beyond the frontiers of Unova.
At age twenty-one, however, he received word of a failed operation in the foreign, eastern region of Saigo undertaken by Heiml operatives; an entire squadron was wiped out, and Gavin King was among the casualties. The death of his younger brother hit him much harder than his father’s, and the Champion travelled to Heiml to pay his respects, overcome with grief. It was upon arriving to the northern country that he met a broken man, an outlier of the ongoing war between Heiml and Saigo – Ghost, as they called him. That meeting changed Axel’s life; Ghost opened his eyes to realities of war, death and loss, and asked his help to settle the ongoing conflict, in memory of his fallen brother. Despite being a foreigner, and while Unova’s government had opted to remain a neutral party in the conflict, Axel decided to join Ghost. But if he was to help the man and change the outcome of the war, he had to step out of his shell, away from the glam and glitter, away from the sponsor-chosen teams he’d always used. To truly become strong enough, he chose to travel incognito to a distant, broken land – Kanjohto, where his skills would truly be tested. And only once he’d helped enough people in the land struck by the disasters, only once he was good enough to join Ghost and end the Heiml-Saigo confrontation, would he return. Now in possession of a single Pokémon, given to him by Ghost, the first real partner he’d had since he could remember, Axel is prepared to help mend the broken region of Kanjohto, in his first step towards something infinitely greater and more meaningful than any title of Champion.

Bio:
Moai was a Pokémon given to Axel by Ghost, the Unovan Champion's first real Pokémon under his ownership. Ghost's choice was not random; the Nosepass is silent by nature, devilishly hard to read and, therefore, to strategize or bond with. Contemplative and reserved, Moai is easily entertained by natural phenomena, content to watch life unfold before his eyes at whatever pace Nature sees fit; after all, time is something he's got plenty of, more so than Axel...
However detached he may be from the problems of humans in general, Moai is neither oblivious nor indifferent to Axel's struggle; understanding the concept of loyalty, he understand his role as Axel's partner, and admires the man's drive to make a difference in the world. That passion, so very unique of mankind, and especially evident in his Trainer, fascinates Moai and compels him to facilitate Axel's goal.
The dynamics between Axel and Moai are interesting: whereas the human is flashy and over-the-top in his battling style, the Pokémon cares very little for spectacle; what Moai lacks in passion, Axel easily compensates for, while Moai's objectivity offsets Axel's sometimes unnecessarily elaborate approach to combat.
