    And I'm finally done.

    Name: Takusen
    Age: 15
    Rank: Novice Mage
    Goal: To solve the mystery why his shrine is experiencing such a drought and investigate the omens.

    Description: Takusen stands at a medium-tall height. His build is slender and slightly athletic. His limbs are rather slender, giving him a more lithe appearance. His torso has a tiny bit more muscular definition, but nothing near that of a bodybuilder. On his right hand is the marking that has earned him the epitaph of Kyogre’s oracle. It is a strange, sapphire red marking similar to the lines on Kyogre’s fins. His face is heart-shaped with serene, blue-grey eyes. His navy hair is a moderate length and is often tucked behind his ears.

    Takusen’s wardrobe, as one would expect from anyone associated with one of the shrines, has a highly traditional influence. He wears a sapphire-hued, knee-length yukata with a thin, white obi tied around the waist. For modesty’s sake he wears a pair of matching swimsuit modeled after a pair of Brazilian trunks with a white pokeball pattern on his left hip. He compliments this wardrobe choice with a pair of geta made from cherry wood and simple, white tabi. Takusen’s posture is always poised with a body language that exudes confidence. His single greatest identifier, however, is a blue cord necklace that he almost never takes off.

    Personality: Takusen is a rather quiet individual. That’s not to say that he hates talking with others, he just simply prefers to observe others and contemplate matters. In addition he is an avid seeker of truth and will often be one of the first to investigate any local mysteries. If anyone approaches him or at least sees past his quiet demeanor, they will find that he is actually quite cheerful. It is rare to see him without a kind or uplifting word to say, especially to those who are in need of one.

    Takusen is generally sweet and gentle around others. In addition quite intelligent when compared to most of his peers; however he would not be intelligent enough to be considered a genius. Despite his intelligence he is not pompous or aloof, but rather humble and down-to-earth. He tends to be very formal and well mannered. One thing he hates to do is make waves; he would even say something that completely goes against his personality just so that everyone else will get along. Takusen knows very little about the world outside of the shrine and can often come across as sheltered.

    History: When Takusen was still an infant he was found by Brawly and his father. He was laying in a basket on the beach near the shrine with the waves crashing on the shore. The family took him in and raised him at the shrine. Even from a young age the family found the marking on his hand strange; however things began to be clear up for them once he was five. On the night before Brawly’s graduation ceremony Takusen had his first dreamed premonition in the form of seeing what Brawly’s guardian would be and their name. It was also around this age that a wild carvanha began frequenting the area around the shrine. Over the next three years Takusen began bonding with it, resulting in him making his first technical capture at the age of seven.

    When Takusen was ten he began testing for mage potential. During his first exam, the administrator was nearly overwhelmed by the power he sensed coming from the boy. During his time of preparation for his other exams, several years after the first exam, Brawly took his adoptive brother on a trip to Mt. Pyre. It was here, that Brawly and the old couple helped Takusen to control his power to see the future. One day Takusen was meditating in front of a pool near to where Brawly the Sapphire, a sacred artifact of Kyogre’s, when he had a dark premonition. He could not recall what exactly happened, but in the end he called out for Kyogre with enough panic to startle Brawly and the titan. Less than a month after this premonition a drought struck the shrine. He has now resolved himself to find out what happened to Kyogre and investigate the mysterious omens all around Hoenn.

    Spells Known: Due to being raised at the Shrine of Kyogre Takusen’s spell list is as follows: Detect Magic, Mail, Bubble, Dream* and Water sight.
    Bubble: A basic water type spell, Takusen focuses his aura into producing small bubbles that pelt his target.
    Dream: Ever since his childhood Takusen has been able to see glimpses of the future. This is his oldest spell and one he has very little control over. Sometimes, when he’s asleep, Takusen sees vivid glimpses of future events. Though he doesn't fully recall the details, he often remembers major events.
    Water sight: Ever since his childhood Takusen has been able to see glimpses of the future. Unlike dream, he has full control of when he uses this spell; first he meditates in front of most bodies of water such as lakes and pools. Then, while in the meditative state, he can see past the water’s surface and consciously use his foresight. This spell requires a great deal of concentration and is not guaranteed to be successful.

    Guardian

    Name: Kenshin
    Species: Phione
    Ability: Hydration

    Personality: On one hand, Kenshin is a cool, collected stoic with a keen eye for detail. He is highly investigative and, much like his mage, will reach for the truth with every fiber of his being. On the other hand, Kenshin has a strong naďveté when it comes to how others act and can be extremely gullible. If he and Takusen aren't careful, they will be easily taken advantage of by those who wish to manipulate them.

    Moves: Bubble, Water sport, Charm

    Pokemon

    Name: Jet
    Species: Sharpedo
    Origin: Jet frequented the Shrine of Kyogre as a Cahrvanah and befriended Takusen when he was seven. He has since then become a valued part of Takusen’s team.
    Ability: Speed Boost

    Personality: Most regard Sharpedo as the “Bully of the sea” and fear them. Jet, however couldn’t be any further from that. Contradicting his specie’s norms at every turn just seems to be in his nature; Jet has always been highly social and playful, even as a Carvanha. In addition he is fiercely protective of Takusen, often acting like a bodyguard. One way Jet does act like a typical Sharpedo is his occasional brashness. In addition to this is his impatience.

    Moves:
    Bite
    Ice fang
    Return
    Crunch

    Name: Himiko
    Species: Bunyeary
    Origin: Himiko hatched from an egg that Brawly had given to Takusen for his twelfth birthday.
    Ability: Limber

    Personality: Himiko is a brash and bold tomboy. To her it doesn’t matter that she’s a girl, she thinks she can hit as hard as any of the guys. She has a hair-trigger temper that has been known to make even a Salamence back away slowly. In addition to this fiery temper is a very colorful vocabulary. Despite the fact most humans hear it as pokespeak, anyone who hears her, especially when she’s angry, hear a string of obscenities that could make a sailor blush.

    Moves:
    Pound
    Sky uppercut
    Quick attack
    Low kick
    Fire punch


    Name: Miko
    Species: Chimecho
    Origin: Takusen caught Miko on a trip to Mt. Pyre with Brawly. The two were training in preparation for his exams when a wild Chimecho attacked. A small battle ensued between Jet and the Chimecho, which resulted in Takusen capturing her.
    Ability: Levitate

    Personality: As her name would suggest, Miko is a calm and graceful pokemon. In many ways she could easily be the blue oni to himiko’s red oni. Unlike Himiko, she is very slow to anger and is just as formal as her trainer in mannerisms. She is very cool and collected about how she interacts with everyone.
    Moves:
    Wrap
    Growl
    Hypnosis
    Future Sight
    If December 21 is the end of the world, it has been an honor RPing with y'all!

    Well, the last person I was waiting on has apparently been really busy, so I don't mind. We haven't gotten all that far.

    Name: Christian Azubah
    Age: 17
    Rank: Mage
    Goal: Christian wants to save his parents from the prison of Darkrai, and to do so, he will have to exact perfect revenge by killing the Pitch Black Pokémon. To kill Darkrai, he has journeyed to the Hoenn region to seek out the aid of Deoxys.

    Description:
    Christian is tall and skinny with pale skin that rarely shows. He wears black skater shoes and very dark grey jeans. He never leaves the house without his fitted black hoodie, and his hood always covers his eyes in shadow. His long, smooth, black hair hangs softly across his face, and his eyes are rarely seen. When they are seen, they are usually hard and spiteful, filled with the hatred of Darkrai.

    Personality: Christian is anti-social, consulting only his Pokémon for advice, and he does not think of the word fun. He is constantly full of hatred of Darkrai, never letting his need for revenge leave his mind. He has not trusted a human in the last year and a half, and he only trusts the Pokémon that travel with him. Even this trust takes many weeks or months before it can be solidified. Christian only meets new people when he thinks it will benefit him, meaning that he avoids most people that he comes into contact with, and verbally lashes out against those who try to make light conversation with him. If he does meet someone with the intention of gaining their aid, he will not shy away from the topic, but will attack the issue until his needs are met, using threats if necessary to gain the aid.

    If he is forced to battle, he battles with hatred and complete lack of mercy and sportsmanship. He is cunning in battle, often thinking up unorthodox strategies on the spot. He loves to use the surroundings to his advantage as much as his Pokémon's strengths and the opponent's weaknesses. He will mix attacks with one another in a style similar to that of a contest, and sometimes this is used as a distraction, but he will not use these attacks wastefully as there is always a strategy. He is also not afraid to use an opponent's strategy against them if he thinks that he can pull off the maneuver. In fact, he enjoys the action of discouraging his opponent by playing their game better than they can.

    He does not take the well-being of his Pokémon lightly as he sees them to be the only ones deserving of his compassion. However, this compassion must be earned in Christian's eyes. For example, Lucy was not well-liked by Christian, but she earned her right on the team by her skill as a battler. Eventually, Christian got used to her personality and decided to protect her. All of Christian's Pokémon have undergone a similar struggle to become friends with their master, but once that friendship is achieved, the group and the individual Pokémon are much more successful and well-spirited.

    History:
    Christian Azubah is a young man with incredible magic power who was born into a family of the Faith of Darkrai in Snowpoint City. This cult holds that by faith in the Pitch Black Pokémon and its nightmares, Darkrai will smile upon the waking lives of its followers. The evangelists of the cult, known as the Shadow Angels, claim that the nightmares brought by Darkrai are merely warnings of the dangers of the sentient world, but faith and prayers to the Night-Bringer will ward away misfortune and peril for Darkrai repays kindness and trust.

    Christian's faith in the Night-Bringer was weak because of the trauma that his nightmares had caused him. Every night, he dreamt of a different scenario, a different place, a different time in his young life, but every night, he would release magic power while asleep as his parents prepared to murder him. The magic was released in the form of stored energy because he was unable to wake up during the nightmare until the energy had bided enough time to release in the form of bright light and retaliatory force, expanding from his body and throughout his room to destroy any furniture or fragile objects in the room. Thus, he slept on the floor in his empty room. His faith began to shake as he considered that a truly kind and powerful Pokémon would never cause those sorts of nightmares to a young child to such destructive results.

    Three months before Christian's sixteenth birthday, on the night before he was to be honored as Snowpoint's newest novice Pokémon Mage, Christian found himself struck with nervous insomnia. He decided to go to his parents' room to ask his mother for a sleep tablet, but when he arrived at the door, there was a slight hum emanating from the room. He slowly pushed the door open to find Darkrai hovering over the bed of his parents as they floated in the air beneath his black, ghostly hands. Black and white aura slipped from his parents' faces into Darkrai's hands. Their hands shook and their noses began to bleed until their bodies went completely limp. Christian, petrified in fear, did not make a sound as Darkrai dropped his parents onto the bed. They rolled onto the floor and lied lifeless. Christian looked up at Darkrai with his mouth agape and silent. As Darkrai floated toward the window, he turned to look back at Christian. For a moment they just stared. Darkrai tossed a black ball at Christian's face, which burst into a wisp of smoke around his vision, encasing him in sleep. Immediately, he dreamt of Darkrai's warning to not fall from his faith again as his parents begged for him to help them from behind the glass of Darkrai's nightmarish purgatory.

    Christian silently pledged vengeance, but his priority was to find a way to save his parents's souls from the black limbo. He received his guardian, Sage, the next day in the ceremony and promptly traveled to Lake Acuity to consult Uxie for knowledge on how to save his parents. The journey was short and successful. Uxie found Christian to be on a very dangerous path, and the Lake Guardian judged that Christian needed guidance despite the impurity of his heart's vengeful intentions. As Christian summoned Uxie, the Pokémon appeared quickly in its misty spirit form. Christian requested the knowledge to save his parents from Darkrai, but Uxie told Christian that Darkrai had no intentions of freeing his prisoners. The only way to free his parents would be to kill Darkrai, but it would take incredible power to destroy the Master of Dreams. Uxie suggested the help of a Pokémon unknown to Darkrai, yet vast in power, knowledge, and logic. The two came to the conclusion that Christian must find passage to the Hoenn region and seek out Deoxys for aid in destroying the Night-Bringer. This desire for Deoxys's aid has created full faith in the logical Pokémon, and Christian follows the Cult of Deoxys for information of Deoxys's whereabouts.

    Spells Known:
    Detect Magic
    Mail
    Bide
    Harden
    Growth
    Nature Power



    Guardian

    Name: Sage
    Species: Seedot
    Ability: Overgrow

    Personality: Sage is very distrusting of others, and was initially distrusting of Christian, but the mage paid no attention to the Pokémon's trust issues. Christian forced the Pokémon to obey him by threat and punishment until the two understood each other perfectly. After meeting with Uxie, the two began to trust one another, and Christian shared his troubles with the guardian. Sage accepted Christian for who he was, and the two began to travel as friends instead of just as teammates forced to interact. The two still treat those they meet with spite, and new Pokémon acquired by Christian are spitefully attacked by Sage until the new companion accepts the situation and those in it.

    Moves:
    Bide
    Harden
    Growth
    Nature Power



    Pokemon

    Name: Natsu
    Species: Croagunk
    Origin: Met sand caught along Route 212 in Sinnoh on Christian's journey toward the Hoenn Region.
    Ability: Dry Skin
    Personality: Natsu lives to fight and cherishes nothing else. He gladly follows Christian because he hopes to one day fight Darkrai himself and defeat the dark demon. His tendency in battle is to attack head-on with constant force and determination. When pressured to win, he accepts the challenge with a grin and stronger attacks.
    Moves:
    Fake Out
    Poison Sting
    Taunt
    Pursuit


    Name: Lucy
    Species: Poliwag
    Origin: Lucy was found and caught along Route 225 in the Sinnoh Region as Christian was preparing his way to the Hoenn Region.
    Ability: Swift Swim
    Personality: Lucy is very naive and trusting. She is happy and social, and is truly a terrible match for Christian when it comes to personality. Christian and Sage were awful to Lucy upon first meeting and becoming a team with the Pokémon. Christian was considering releasing the happy-go-lucky annoyance, but Lucy won battle after battle with her incredible speed. She is ferocious in battle, but she is still flashy and playful. Often she will take an unorthodox form of battle to accomplish her task. She gets along decently with Christian, but Christian still treats her with disrespect, though now it is more for the sake of his own enjoyment than actual dislike.
    Moves:
    Water Sport
    Bubble
    Hypnosis
    Water Gun


    Name: Midnight
    Species: Duskull
    Origin: Met and caught on Route 121 in Hoenn.
    Ability: Levitate
    Personality: Midnight is the darkest prankster Christian has ever come into contact with, and he is sadistic and masochistic to the point of comedic hysteria when it comes to battle. He is not loath to hurt his allies if it is for the purpose of his own victory, but Sage's pressure and strong-arming on the ghost-type have led to his faithfulness to Christian and Sage. He will still gladly laugh at Lucy's emotional or physical pain, but he would never put the safety or health of his allies at terrible risk.
    Moves:
    Leer
    Night Shade
    Disable
    Confuse Ray


    Name: Erza
    Species: Scyther
    Origin: Erza was abandoned by its previous owner who left it in chains just south of Mt. Pyre. Christian demanded complete loyalty from the Pokémon before freeing her from the chains, and Erza accepted the order.
    Ability: Technician
    Personality: Erza remains completely loyal to Christian and the other Pokémon, and she was the quickest of any of Christian's Pokémon to gain his trust besides Sage. She is very well-balanced in battle between speed, power, and defensive toughness. She often changes her fighting style mid-contest to to disrupt her opponent and claim victory out of dire situations.
    Moves:
    Quick Attack
    False Swipe
    Agility
    Counter

    Hmm, nice concept; I see some possibilities to mess with. I think the description is short, although given what it is, there doesn't seem to be a lot to extend it with... Hoenn is a near-tropical region, so the hoodie might be kind of warm. The personality section is on the short side too, but it does come across clearly that he is obsessed with finding Darkrai. Maybe add some other things to give him more depth? Check out some of the other character sheets here to see what's expected. Christian is rather dark to start with, unless you mean to try redeeming him through the game's progress.

    One thing that bothers me is that you say that Christian takes good care of his Pokemon, but he would torture Lucy and seems to be really harsh on the rest (enough that his guardian is already becoming corrupted). I don't mind dark characters, but torture in general is taking it rather far for a protagonist character.

    I'm going to say this is pending, because the conflict there needs to be resolved. Also, it's probably not Darkrai who killed his parents, but you can still use that backstory.

    Thank you for getting back to me. I will work on expanding his personality right away, and I will clear up the Lucy issue. I meant for Christian to not like her and treat her with disrespect even, but I did not mean torture at all. As far as Christian being dark, I kind of need it. He is a character from a novel I'm working on, but I've been having a lot of trouble developing his personality. In the novel, he's a depressed superhero, in short. He will likely mellow out as the story progresses, but he probably won't be redeemed much more than Paul was in Sinnoh. If this isn't okay, please let me know, and I'll try to change things more.
