Name: Jaclen “Jack” Cuhleroin
Affiliation: Ernst/ Reshiram
Special Weapon/Armour: Jack wields a pair of tough black leather gauntlets which have been imbued with “Nature Power”. They are a family heirloom and as the oldest son, Jack has inherited both gloves, one of which from his deceased younger brother. They allow for wearer to manipulate their surroundings to their whims, but require significant concentration, creativity and control to use so one could not just don on the gauntlets and create an earthquake to destroy a castle, as they are just as likely make a sink hole where they are standing. They work best when stood still as well. Jack has been using the gauntlets for 16 years.
Appearance: Typical of the Cuhleroin family, Jack is quite tall standing at 6’1 ft. He has short kept hair the same colour as tree bark and dark green eyes and a deep bass voice which when roused can make many men cower. His facial features are fairly sharp and masculine, with a strong jaw line, covered in a dark beard, many people describing him as ruggedly handsome. He is tanned skin from spending most of his life outdoors and has a body frame which one can easily tell is in the peak of physical fitness when me moves, not rippling with muscles, but more of like that of a skilled hunter, each step he takes with a purpose.
When is battle, Jack wears a full suit of plate armour, emblazoned with the Cuhleroin family crest of a Sawksbuck head on his chest and on his round shield. Jack is well trained in the art of the spear and also in a hand-and-a-half sword which can be used with one hand or two. The sword also has the ability to channel the power of his gauntlets to a certain degree, although not with any great finesse. In more casual attire, Jack wears a plain green tunic and brown trousers, all of good study quality thanks to his wealthy background. He also has leather armour for when he’s on a mission which requires more stealth.
Personality: Jack’s presence is much like being in the presence of a huge oak tree, a quiet strength resides in him, which has at times made people mistake him for royalty. He is a gentle and honourable man, who sees no need for conflict, excess, frivolity to cruelty. Indeed, he has many makings of a monk had life not taken him down the Knight’s path. As you can guess, he is a calm and caring man the majority of the time, who wishes he could mend many things especially that of his brother’s demise – he knows his death was not his fault, but still the guilt that he was supposed to look after him saddens his heart. To bring harm upon another always makes him pause, for the briefest moment.
Do not think him meek and submissive however. Jack was brought up to take charge. As the eldest son, he has a great mind to organisation. He can run an estate with ease. His low tones are gentle yet subtlety commanding, and although hard to do, his anger is quite the sight. One doesn’t like to bring a forest on their heads after all. Once he makes his mind up, nothing can get in the way. However, when it comes to social political prowess and the dance of the houses and courts, Jack struggles. He was brought up to be a leading man, and to be part of a web pulling many strings and trying not to get pulled, not giving himself time to mull thoughts over and all manner of ill deeds and thoughts occur.
History:Jack was born as the oldest son of the Cuhleroin family, who owned an extensive estate in the foothills of the twist mountain range, much of which is forest home to many Sawsbuck and Deerling herds. The Cuhleroin is an old family that has been serving and protecting Western Unova Empire for generations, namely through farming and also key family allegiances which kept the central western province a peaceful place
Jack’s childhood was what many would call an easy one. He was lucky, being part of a wealthy, powerful and most importantly, stable family. Since they were a rural family, they often avoided the conflicts of politics and city life. All these resulted in allowed Jack to have some of the best education in a variety of different topics. Jack, as the eldest, grew up learning how to govern an estate since it was expected that he would inherit the estate in the future once his father passed away. As well as being involved with such matters, he was taught the arts of being hands-on by his father and servants, resulting in Jack being an accomplished hunter and tracker, plus knowing many survival skills.
However, sitting upon his familial seat in a backwater estate didn’t appeal Jack’s younger brother’s wondering mind. When he was 14, he was given the opportunity to become a Knight. Wishing to bring honour upon his family name, Jack’s brother accepted. Their father, while disapproving, accepted his choice, and decided on the understanding that life was the best teacher one could give his sons, instructed Jack to become a Knight as well. He give Jack and his younger brother one of each “Nature Power” gauntlets to protect them, as well as giving both his sons the sons of his Sawsbuck, who was the leader of the herd.
Their trip to the big city was uneventful, and they were quickly accepted into the Knights in training. Both Jack and his brother excelled, especially with their bigger frames typical of the house from the western forest, and formed a well-known pairing of high skill with their Sawsbuck. Jack was knighted on his 21st, followed by his younger brother 2 years later. Since they already had a special imbued piece of armour, they did not receive anything new.
They served the city for several years. Jack avoided as much politics as he could, since he had no head for such matters, while his brother enjoyed many delights of the city. His younger brother began to fall astray however, falling into many vices of disreputable nature which began to strain their relationship, especially when Jack had to maintain an image of a respected House. Over and over again, Jack had to get his brother out of many problems and keep them covered up, and all this time Jack knew not why his brother was being so.
Jack’s brother died in his 27th year. He was hungover and was attacked by bandits. Jack inherited his brother’s matching gauntlet, the bandits obviously not realising the power the plain leather glove had. This was a period of great sadness and mourning for him, for not long afterwards, his father died, and Jack was allowed leave to return back to his estate to manage and sort out the family affairs, bitter with the loss of his brother he couldn’t keep together.
Several years later, upon the schism of the brothers, Ernst came to Jack for support. He was a simple man and found Aleksandur’s pursuit of ideals quite distasteful – for ideals are subjective. Ernst’s quest for truth lay plain and understandable. Jack have his support to the champion of Truth and gathering his banner men, left the care of his estate to his wife and mother.
Other: Jack has a wife who is pregnant with their first child. It was an arrange marriage after his father died and they do not love each other, but respect each other.

Ability: Sap Sipper/Chlorophyll
Moves: Nature Power, Horn Leech, Natural Gift, Aromatherapy, Odour sleuth, Jump Kick
Appearance: Rohan is very aptly deemed the “serene” Pokémon. He is a very large Sawsbuck and leader of his herd back at the Cuhleroin family estate, standing at roughly 5’6 ft to his shoulder, easily allowing him to carry humans with ease.
Personality: Rohan is a very calm individual, radiating an apathetic aura of power which isn’t surprising in that he’s the king of his forest. He is a quiet individual who would rather avoid anything around him but is completely loyal to his master and will quietly defend him till his last breath. He does not find joy in war and fighting and prefers to settle things in a simple and quiet matter or avoid the issue completely just like his Knight but if push comes to shove, he will fight, and using his wealth of experience in battle, be quick and efficient about it. However, he will never run away once he is brought into a fight until he is utterly beaten. He is much at home in the countryside, and gets uneasy in cities and towns, and has an immense dislike for pavements, much preferring the feel of earth beneath his hooves, often making him appear somewhat skittish in urban areas at times when busy.
History: Given to Jack when he was just a Deerling, Rohan is the offspring of the previous head of the herd on the Cuhleroin estate and has served his master ever since as partner and once he evolved, as his steed, experiencing much together. Once he came back to the Estate, he fought his way back to being the head of his herd and pretty much roamed free and did as he liked until Jack called him into service once more.
Moves: Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Hail, Weather Ball, Thief, Protect
Appearance: Torren is a small Castform being so young.
Personality: Torren is an incredibly shy Pokémon and will often stay close to his master, often hiding away at the sight of others and sticking close to Jack at all times, seeing Jack more as a parental figure than his master. In fact, Jack never orders Torren to perform anything, but asks. Torren’s main role is to aid Jack and his teammate Rohan any way he can, just as clearing the skies for battle or creating cover for a stealth mission, or defensive purposes. When just around Jack and Rohan, Torren often becomes a lot more cheerful and excitable, with a childish wonder for everything which always brings a smile to Jack’s face.
History: Torren came to Jack on a stormy night on the Cuhleroin estate. He doesn’t remember what happened to him before (Jack suspect trauma to his head) but he was blown into the window of Jack’s study who, seeing the distressed unconscious weather Pokémon, let him in. Since then the little Pokémon has been by Jack’s side, not knowing anything about his past, but content as the situation he is in with a teammate he respects and a master he loves.
