Birthday: August 8th
Description: Blonde hair and relatively tall to others in his grade. Sea-green eyes and pale white skin. His clothes are always black, but in the middle of his t-shirt is pokéball symbol and the words "Been there, Caught that." His vest has a cyan collar that continues down the center on both sides. He leaves it unzipped. His shoes are badly worn, but don't quite have holes in them.
Misc Info: Since shortly after his father died when Arcanum was only 7, Arcanum has been a more introverted child. Not troubled or angry, but quieter and less open to expressing his feelings. He is more likely to talk to his pokémon than his mother, and has replaced the need for close friends with pokémon. In fact, it even hurt his ability at school, and it took him a few extra months past the others in his class to finish his education at the local Trainer School. After graduating in an office setting rather than an auditorium, the first place he traveled was the Graveyard. He felt more comfortable in lonely places, and had always wanted to go back to a Graveyard since his father died - he hoped he would feel closer to him if he could return there. This is where his travels with Adam begin:

After catching his first pokémon, Arcanum took a trip to the island of Cortoza to bring Adam to his native setting, hoping he'd appreciate seeing some of his own type. Before leaving the Arcane Realm, he stopped by a place that was giving away eggs and newborn pokémon and picked up two eggs. The Horsea named Brooks hatched during the trip, but the second egg stayed silent. Once he arrived at the island, he began the climb up to the ashy plains in the hopes of having a picnic with his Trapinch.II. On the plains of Ash (Cortoza) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Final
With his Nincada, Lyre, hatched, and a Caterpie adopted from an adoption center nearby in tow, Arcanum decided it had been a while since he had been to a beach and wanted to take in a scenery with more water after his earthy, dusty adventure in Cortoza. Lucy was fine, so he and his five pokémon set off on another boat ride towards the sandy beaches.III. Laguna Beach and Afterlife 101 (Laguna Peninsula) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

A Few Years Later...
Arcanum, now 14, woke up from his dream, wet from being pelted by rain that quickly grew severe in the minutes after he woke up. It had been a while since he had seen Lyre and Brooks, and subconsciously, he missed them, but back then he had reconciled his choice to drop them off at an Adoption Center, turning his back on his pokémon and abandoning them, and he looked back on the memory angrily, as if the two had done something to deserve it. He would probably never see Lucy and her Caterpie again, but while he was there, he adopted a bright-eyed Caterpie. Contrary to what one would believe, Arcanum's heart hardened as he traveled with his pokémon, as he bought unwanted pokémon from other people (a Smoochum and Piplup), and only keeping another he hatched himself when it was a shiny... even though it was just a Weedle. He then focused on raising his team's levels so when he returned for more adventures, he would be prepared. -Edit more-
