    Default [PG-13] [SU] QUISTA: The Guardian's Mantra


    QUISTA: THE GUARDIAN'S MANTRA

    THE STORY SO FAR

    Gift or curse, Lugia, Guardian of the Seas, was left with little choice...

    As humans celebrated the year 2017 with the introduction of new technology and scientific research, the only remaining Lugia had grown too old and sick, realizing he was not immortal and ageless as he once believed. But only after this realization, his search to find the possible myth of an existing mate was fruitless, and only wore him down even further. With no options left but chaos or the reliance on humanity, he had to let go of all his fears and let fate decide.

    Waiting for the right moment, he waited until midnight before heading to Olivine City's shores...

    Five friends had been having a late night beach party about a mile away from Olivine City itself. Little did they know their presence on that beach at that very moment would change their lives and destinies forever. Amidst the music, late night partying, and conversations, it wasn't long until one of them spotted something large washing up upon the shore. Eventually, they all saw it and soon approached.

    When they realized it was Lugia, they were bewildered like never before, but the bigger shock was the realization of how close Lugia was to death mainly from being too old and sick. They had only heard rumors of the legendary Pokémon's existence, but now it was real, and they realized he had used the last of his energy just to drift and wash up on the shore. The five trainers had tried to save him, using Pokémon healing supplies and other means to keep him alive, but it only gave him a few more minutes. Regardless, Lugia felt that with no one left to turn to, he felt these five Pokémon trainers that had tried to save his life would be the best ones to trust and rely upon.

    Wasting no time, he told the trainers how important the role of the Guardian was while they stood there in awe, never thinking there was a Pokémon that could directly communicate with humans. The Lugia made it clear that his death would cause a great disturbance in the balance of nature and that the future was in their hands now, still leaving them in question as to what was going to be done. It was then that the Lugia had sung the Guardian’s Mantra, something almost no human has ever heard before. The trainers listened intently to a song that sounded both mournful but hopeful, and soon, out of nowhere, they felt themselves enveloped by a great, blinding light that only they could see and feel. For a split second, they saw themselves as a Lugia, a brief vision that only lasted for a few seconds before everything died down again, and they found themselves standing on the beach again. Once the strange trance had faded, they found the Lugia had died before them. After agreeing not to tell anyone about what happened that night and to keep it a secret, they pushed the dead Lugia’s body into the water, packed up their things, and went home with questions and anxieties racing through their heads.

    ---

    Little did they know, just out of their sight, a Johto Coast Guard vessel had spotted the trainers, and was about to reprimand them for being on the beach at midnight when his surveillance equipment had captured them conversing with the Lugia. His equipment was unable to get sufficient audible sound recordings, but he was able to get pictures and video of all five trainers before they pushed the Lugia’s body back into the sea, packed up their things, and headed home.

    After transferring the files and footage to an FBI server, the Johto Federal Bureau of Investigation flagged the five trainers for further surveillance. Thinking the trainers might have been responsible for the Lugia’s death, they analyzed the body of Lugia, and kept watch on the trainers however they could.

    In the process of the investigation, the DNA samples of the five trainers collected by forensics teams, samples mainly including fallen hairs, chewing gum, discarded trash, and other samples, had yielded very unusual results when analyzed by the FBI laboratories. What they found completely baffled them as they discovered the DNA of the five trainers far more closely resembled that of Lugia than a human.

    ---

    After experiencing several vivid dreams usually relating to the incident and Lugia itself, one of the five had learned how to transform into a Lugia by concentrating on the likeness of Lugia. Once transformed, each one of them would have the same power and capability as the Guardian of the Seas. However, after the five of them got together and realized this, they suddenly understood that one among them would have to give up everything to take Lugia's place and leave behind the life they had as a human. And it was there that they realized what the now deceased Lugia had left for them to resolve, and why he had given them this incredible power. But while they had a very difficult time trying to decide who would be the one to take Lugia's place, the weather and rainstorms were only getting worse without a Guardian to control and monitor them, and it was all the evidence they needed to understand they were running out of time.

    However, never knowing they were flagged and were being watched by the FBI, Johto’s agents saw the Lugia transformation in action, and made the capture of the five trainers a priority one objective. They named the trainers as “Quista, children of Lugia” and made it their mission to find them and see if the Quista initiation process could be replicated once again to turn normal humans into Lugia-transforming individuals. With that kind of power, the Johto government knew the kind of leverage they could obtain from it would be massive. They knew they needed to get their hands on the power first, and keep it out of the hands of normal civilians. However, most of them were under the assumption that such a massive amount of power would likely be used for military purposes.

    Operation Quista was immediately launched by the Johto government, and soon enough, police, FBI agents, and the military were after these five mysterious trainers, all intent on finding just one of them to uncover the secret. All the while, they kept the general public in the dark regarding the whole operation, not wanting anyone to know that such a powerful secret walked among humans.

    But now, the Quista are on the run, and need to avoid letting their secret slip into the wrong hands, all while trying to decide who will have to give up everything to become the next Guardian of the Seas...

    ---

    But from within the shadows, they were being watched...

    Xexan, an underground Johto-based group of hackers, criminals, mad scientists, and other such renegades, had come across the Operation Quista files after breaking into the government's databases while searching for other information. When they had confirmed the files and information was authentic, the five Quista trainers intrigued the organization, knowing if they managed to get their hands on the power of Lugia and bestow it upon multitudes of their members, they could create an army that could easily overthrow any government, including Johto's. While their mad pursuits of power have already taken the nefarious organization to new, darker heights, the Quista are their ultimate key toward unleashing anarchy and gaining total control of Johto, if not the entire world in due time.

    Meanwhile, they fight a secret war with the government, knowing the government can't disclose knowledge of Xexan without causing panic and hysteria. And at the same time, Xexan has access to weapons and powers the government could only dream of using, but need to remain in the shadows to avoid revealing themselves and their secret society to everyday trainers. To Xexan, such a secret needs to remain hidden... until the time is just right for total takeover... right when everyone is helpless to do anything about it...

    Like a wolf in the night stalking its prey, Xexan dispatched its forces in the shadows, stalking and hunting the five Quista trainers.

    THE QUISTA SITUATION

    Currently, there are five Quista members. Each of them adheres to the following:

    • Each Quista has a tattoo of a Lugia on their back which can never be removed. It’s about the size of a dinner plate. This can’t be seen unless their shirt is taken off, obviously.
    • Also, every Quista has a lower body temperature than a normal human. Because the FBI knows this, use of thermal visors and technology has become a spearhead in the pursuit of them.
    • Every Quista knows the Guardian’s Mantra, and could easily perform it in their Lugia form to create additional Quista members (although great care should be taken with regards to this, of course). However, the FBI does NOT know anything about the Guardian’s Mantra or exactly how the five trainers got this power.
    • A Quista can only turn into a Lugia and revert back to a human four times before permanently becoming a Lugia on the fifth transformation. Also, each cumulative time, it becomes harder and harder to turn back into a human. On around the third time, the transformation back to human becomes only partial, meaning the Quista may be walking around with white, rubbery skin and a Lugia tail. On around the fourth time (a sincerely difficult struggle), they are nearly half human, half Lugia. However, becoming a Lugia at will is very easy, and just requires some concentration. They basically imagine themselves as Lugia, and it actually happens (because it's so easy, it could happen unintentionally). In addition, if a Quista stays as a Lugia for over 24 hours, they can never turn back.
    • Transformation into a Lugia destroys clothing. Things like Pokéballs and devices are spared, however, but fall to the ground alongside the tattered clothing, and cannot be carried while the character is in Lugia form.
    • Every Quista no longer has normal dreams. Every night (or even when they just nap or doze off) they have a Lugia-related dream, even if they didn’t dream so often in the past. Also, the dreams are always pleasant, tranquil, and comforting, all attempting to push the Quista to accept their fate and become Lugia.
    • A Quista can not be captured in a Pokéball… not until they become a permanent Lugia (would still require a MASSIVE amount of non-fatal beating up prior to a capture attempt). Also, in Lugia form, they can use any level up move, but not TMs. Those can only be learned once the Quista becomes a permanent Lugia.
    • And finally, a Quista can communicate with Pokémon, but only while they’re in their Lugia form.


    If you want to role play as one of the five Quista members, that's great and I'm fine with you reserving yourself a spot as one, but you definitely need to promise to be very active and stay active in this RP. Please don't take one of these spots if you're unsure.

    Role players can also sign up as civilian Quista supporters. However, they should have some kind of connection to one of the already existing Quista members, such as being a trusted friend or family member of one of the characters. It's best if you contact one of the Quista role players regarding what possible connection your character has to theirs.

    THE GOVERNMENT SITUATION

    The following branches of Johto's government are involved with the pursuit of the five Quista. Role players on the Johto government side can take any one of these three roles.

    Police - Police are at the forefront of the operation, wanting to keep the Quista pursuit under control and hidden from the rest of the Johto population. They have been informed of what they're up against, but they are hopeful the Quista can simply be caught, arrested, and imprisoned without ever transforming into a powerful Lugia. And if conflict and fighting can be avoided, all so much the better. Quick, simple, and clean is what they're aiming for.

    Police SWAT teams may be called in if things become violent and/or officers have or could become injured in their attempts to apprehend the Quista. That could include possible confrontations involving Xexan as well.

    Johto Federal Bureau of Investigation - The FBI are trying their best to keep the situation very hush-hush and unknown to outside civilians. While police perform most of the grunt work, FBI agents are constantly researching the five Quista members, their families, their lives, backgrounds, and other information.

    The FBI also have access to the government surveillance program known as Urban Eye, which connects all surveillance cameras, audio and visual feeds, and information databases into one central network. Using this technology, the FBI can use facial recognition, audio scans, and the like to find and track the Quista down. Meanwhile, the Quista themselves are not aware this technology exists, but they could potentially uncover the secret through using Lugia's psychic powers once they've taken on Lugia's form.

    Johto Military Branches - While the military has taken an interest into the power of the Quista and using it for military purposes, they are only taking a supportive role with surveillance and communication in the beginning. Unless things get extreme with the Quista and the five Quista members use their Lugia forms in reprisal, the military likely won't use excessive force and will simply resort to non-lethal tactical neutralization strikes upon the Quista. However, with the heat rising and Xexan becoming involved, there is chance of all-out warfare taking place.

    Also...

    • Everyone on the government side has plenty of money to work with, and would already have quite an arsenal of technology and devices to use in their efforts to find and capture the Quista. Also, expense is not an issue. The Johto government would gladly sacrifice a few squad cars or other expendable equipment if it means getting their hands on a Quista and learning the secret behind how they came to be.
    • RPers on the government side are allowed to have many NPCs working with them, whether they’re by the character’s side or are back at base, using tracking technology to help the RPer’s character. Unlike the Quista and Xexan sides, the government has the advantage of numbers, money, and technology, but unlike those two, public relations are at stake if the Quista situation blows out of control and suddenly becomes public knowledge through heavy conflicts involving Lugia transformations and many eyewitnesses.


    THE XEXAN SITUATION

    The Xexan organization, hidden away in an underground bunker in Ilex Forest, consists of pure rebels, hating the current government institution. Funded by mob leaders, criminal kingpins, and other nefarious crime lords and masterminds, Xexan relies on strange and unethical means to leverage power and take down their enemies. In that dark, cold, underground bunker, many of the darkest creations of science and corruption have been spawned.

    Hackers - Xexan hackers are extremely skilled and are capable of breaking into anything. They don't want to shut down the government's machines until after they unlock the Quista secret, but they will fight with the government to ensure Xexan wins the race and gets their hands on the Quista first. But until Xexan has what they want, they'll keep piggy-backing off of the government's surveillance for the latest scoop for as long as they need to.

    Scientists - Xexan's scientists have no moral or ethical regard with how they conduct their research, willing to do anything in the name of science. Having a living Lugia as a specimen and as a power they could incorporate into their corrupt and morally deplorable projects is something they passionately desire. But in the meantime, they will research and design mutagens, technology, and weaponry to compete with the Johto government.

    Soldiers - Many of Xexan's secret mutagens have resulted in many half-human, half-Pokémon hybrids among Xexan's soldiers. Others are Pokémon that were once human for deception and disguise, and there are quite a few soldiers that have been turned into cyborgs with the number of implants and appendage replacements they have been given. As deranged as even this sounds, Xexan makes it possible for soldiers and other personnel to change forms and revert back to normal or take on new forms whenever they so please with little scarring and aftermath with the help of dark, mad science. However, they need to keep Xexan's research secret, and cannot allow this research to fall into anyone else's hands or be destroyed. And there is nothing more the Johto Government would enjoy than eradicating every last bit of Xexan and their research.

    In addition, they also have their hands on powerful, experimental weaponry, and even their Pokémon have been mutated, combined with other Pokémon, grafted with implants, and subject to a variety of dark experiments and procedures, all in the name of power.

    NOTE: A role player character on the Xexan side can choose any two of these three role positions. However, NPCs in Xexan can only assume one role.

    Xexan wants the Quista and are willing to do whatever it takes to get one of them so they can start creating their vicious mutated Lugia army. That also means they don't care what civilians get harmed or killed from getting in their way.

    RULES

    - No spamming.
    - Limit OCC chat.
    - No god-modding or bunnying
    - Posts should be at least a paragraph long. I'm not a fan of one-liners.
    - Every post should have your character’s name, side, and location at the top in the form of a header. This is to make it easier to tell who is on what side, and differentiate between characters in case two or more are being used for the same post. Also, if you're role playing a Quista character, use the header to track how many Lugia transformations they have used.

    With that said, hope you enjoy the RP.

    If you're taking reserves, I'd like to be a Quista! I'll get to work on it right now in fact. Also, since one of the trainers has already transformed, could that be a challenge that only he/she can turn four more times instead of five?

    I'd like to reserve as a Quista supporter, the problem is my intended character's birthplace is Sinnoh so coming up with prior interaction with one of the Quistas could be difficult.

    By the way, could this have been inspired by the Animorphs books by any chance?

    This looks very interesting. I would like to reserve an FBI, please?

    And those books are awesome. lol
    And I have a question. Are the moves of the Pokemon Limited? Or is it like With Lugia, and they can use any move of their moveset?

    Sure thing, you're reserved, amigo.

    As for that whole transformation thing, I'm just not counting that one, unless someone wants to already have that one transformation clocked onto their character (could be you too, if you want).

    Cool beans. You're reserved.

    You got it. Because yeah, being a Quista is like running around in Grand Theft Auto with a five-star notoriety. Plus, FBI agents are cool and wear shades.

    I'm okay with this, but you might want to wait for a Quista character's sign up to be completed and then chat with the role player regarding how your character knows theirs.

    As for Animorphs, you have an eagle eye, amigo. Those books are awesome and I admit I did take a few scraps of ideas from that series when it came to creating this.

    Sure, your reserve's ready.

    As for the moves, anything of their moveset is fine, and I'm okay with a TM move here and there as well. I've never been a fan of the four move limit. :P

    Well, if you don't have a problem with it (and no one is gonna challenge me for it), then I'd like to have it count towards my character. 1) Get a bit of realism out of it. 2)Extra challenge. 3)I'd like to delve into the emotional and psychological aspect of it. I mean, come on, it's not like they're going "oh look, I can transform. Cool!" It may be a gift, but I'm willing to bet it has a toll on the mind. And I'd like to investigate and RP that.

    Awesome, I like RPers that do that. And yeah, it sure does have a pretty hard toll on the mind. Their normal, everyday lives are over, and one of them has to give up everything permanently before the world falls apart in their hands. That feeling of knowing you'll never be safe again is very likely bound to have its negative effects. And the voices in their heads and in their dreams only make it worse.

    Anyone that thinks it's just a fun and neat transformation trick to stomp the bad guys is in for some nasty surprises. This isn't one of those kinds of RPs.

    Hm...ho boy. What to do, what to do...I will take a reserve...not sure for who quite yet. Need to eat lunch and think about something first....
    Take a moment to consider just how nothing nothing really is....If you understand this, then you just solved the universe.

    The truth that each person...each soul...is a book. And when we lay our feelings out in the open...and we give them no name...and we give them no author....and we give them no description.....who will actually read them..........?"

    Sure thing, but you're always free to change your mind and switch sides if you feel midway the character might fit in better elsewhere.

    Yep, those are fine. Trust me, I'm pretty lenient.

    Question, do we need to sign up NPCs that your character is going to utilize in the RP?

    Nah, that's not necessary. Just introduce them in the RP itself, and it's all good.

    My WIP, simply because I don't want to clutter my computer with a bunch of different sign ups.


    Name: Howard Rainard

    Side: Johto Government

    Role: FBI Agent

    Age: 35

    Gender: Male

    Description: Howard Rainard is one intimidating man. Standing at 6'0" and his weight being nearly all muscle, very few aren't instantly intimidated by him. His skin is a deep olive color because of the years he spent out in the sun in Hoenn. The sun also aged his face a lot but, this only adds to his ruggedness. Many people joke that he has perpetual 5 o'clock shadow and his hair NEVER grows. This is because he likes being well groomed but, at the same time, tries to appear manly and rugged. His hair is what you'd call, salt and pepper. His hair used to be black but, because of his genetics, has begun to gray in recent years and so, it looks like salt and pepper sprinkled on his head and beard.

    Howard's face is strong, hard and commanding. He has a rectangular shaped head with a strong masculine jaw line. His nose has been through the ringer and broke about 2 separate times. This caused it to be slightly asymmetrical and have a slight curve to it. Even with the crookedness of it, it still manages to not overpower his face and remained relatively thin. His eyebrows are mostly straight with a slight curve near the ends of them. They, unlike his hair and beard, are still black. Howard's eyes, however, completely contrasts his intimidating frame. They are the lightest brown eyes many have seen. Though strong, they have a deep serene and nurturing energy about them that, if you can get past his rugged frame, you can see that he's not that intimidating at all. He's just a Papa bear personified.

    Howard doesn't wear anything special; it's just how he wears it. He wears a standard white button up t-shirt, fitted of course, with the sleeves always rolled up. He wears a black skinny tie and a holster with a gun. The holster goes around his left arm and clips to his belt; the gun rests under his arm pit. The button up really has no real special markings. He wears standard black dress pants and a normal belt. To finish it off, he wears a brown trench coat and impeccably clean dress shoes.

    Personality: In stark contrast to his appearance, he is very nurturing, caring and sensitive person. However, if someone attacks the people he cares about, which is almost anyone he meets, he can become quite enraged. He is known as a Papa Ursaring around the FBI because of this. His rage can become so bad, he blacks out and can't remember anything that happened. He doesn't exactly understand why this happens. After realizing that he hurt someone with his own hands, he becomes guilt ridden and, like a scared turtle, retreats into his safe place for a couple of days. The only exception for him having no regret about hitting someone else is when they have clear motives to hurt someone or a lot of people.

    While on the job, however, he becomes quite cold and calculating. He needs to in order to be the great FBI agent he is. He is also quite the observer. Howard has 20/10 vision, allowing him to see things clearly slightly farther than the normal person. He is also quite the detective and has questioned many criminals in the past using his intimidating form as a bluff, since he really isn't that way. That being said, when dealing with criminals, he puts on a very intimidating front. He does this to get information out of them and he doesn't really care about hurting criminals as he sees them as scum.

    History: Howard Rainard was born and raised in Sootopolis City, Hoenn. He was born to a long line of police officers that also bred Growlithes for the local Police. Right around Howard's 10th birthday, when he would receive his "family Growlithe", a odd Growlithe was born. This Growlithe's coloring was odd in the fact that it was reverse. It's coat was black with red stripes, however the black coat had speckles of red, causing it's coat to look like cooling magma. Howard took an instant liking to the Growlithe for it's different, overall cooler look. His parents tried to persuade him from not picking that particular Growlithe because it was the runt of the litter and they thought Howard should have stronger Growlithe to have but, Howard made his decision and there was no turning back. However, since Howard wasn't the oldest of the family, he wasn't forced to be a police officer like his brother Terry. Howard actually wanted to be a pokemon trainer.

    His family flew him out to Littleroot Town in order to receive his pokedex from Prof. Birch. Most of his teen life was going through both the Hoenn and Sinnoh league. By the end of his two adventures he flew out to Johto and began his journey in Johto. Howard, however, started getting rather bored with the life of a trainer. It was tiring and, quite frankly, repetitive. He needed some sort of action and variety in his life. So, he abandoned his trainer journey and joined Interpol, the international police force of the pokemon world. He quickly raised the ranks but, got into trouble when he mortally wounded a Team Plasma member in Unova. Luckily this was right around the time the Quista were discovered in the Johto region and so, he was transferred to investigate. However, unbeknownst to the Johto FBI, he is keeping tabs on them for Interpol. He is supposed to gather information for Interpol to see if there will need to be Interpol intervention since Interpol doesn't believe that the Johto FBI will use the powers of the Quista responsibly. In other words, he is a double agent.

    *if this isn't allowed I'll change the last part of his history. I made it so it would be easy for me to do that.

    Other: He was born June 2. Sign of Gemini. He doesn't like Spicy Food.

    Hrm, alright gonna call this thing done. Bloody personality section....

    Name: Ian Blackwood
    Side: Johto Government (but controlled by the Xexan)
    Role: Military Operative
    Age: 29
    Gender: Male

    Description: Ian towers over almost everyone at nearly six foot three. Sharply angled, and lacking much expression at all, Ian’s face appears to be cut from a slab of granite, and has similar expression to one. His green eyes seem to be always locked into the “thousand yard stare”, at least until something interests him, when they almost seem to brighten visibly. Much of Ian’s skin is crisscrossed with Scars, each a memento of some training, or mission he has gone on in the past. Some of them are the results of several encounters with low level Xexan agents, while others from various missions and training.

    Ian's clothing is very basic, consisting of a long sleeved black shirt, and black jeans, and combat boots. Since the military isn't deploying combat troops, most soldiers involved wear civilian clothes over their combat gear. For Ian this means he is wearing full body armor under his civilian clothes, a backpack which hold his weapons, and some other equipment, and a concealed microphone and ear piece for communication if he is in the field.

    Personality: No emotion is probably the best way to characterize Ian. No matter the situation, his face is completely expressionless; he just stares seemingly indifferently forwards. In reality, Ian isn’t as unfeeling as some might believe; the lack of emotions is just his way of dealing with exactly what his life has come to.

    Ian is a fiercely loyal person, at least to those he feels deserve that loyalty. Exactly how he decides if someone is worthy of his loyalty is unknown, but once he does, even death isn’t likely to convince him to betray the person/persons/organization. This of course, creates a massive internal conflict for Ian, as he is forced to comply with Xexan orders, and directives, while still maintaining the front of being loyal to the Johto Government. This forced betrayal of someone Ian considers worthy of his loyalty would normally be enough to drive Ian to suicide, but because of some quirks in the modifications made to him, he finds the idea of suicide extremely repulsive, and even if he wanted to, his mind and body would rebel against doing so.

    When not on the job, in isn’t quite as emotionless, and he can occasionally be found laughing, or more commonly, smirking. He enjoys reading, mostly sci-fi and fantasy books, which is probably the only real point of connection he has left with the outside world. With twelve years in the military, and almost ten in Black Ops, having seen the worst of humanity, and being forced to betray his very identity, Ian has very little which connects him to the average person on the street, which has lead to him being something of a cynic.

    History: Ian was born into a family with a long history of military service in Blackthorn City. Ian’s mother died from a rare complication during childbirth, leavings Ian’s ex-military father to raise him. Because of this, Ian grew up learning how martial arts, marksmanship as soon as he was able. Despite his father’s strictness, Ian’s early life was good, he never wanted for anything, and made friends easily enough. Ian’s father, while making sure his son was ready to carry on the family tradition of military service, still did his best to ensure that Ian had a normal childhood, at least, within that man’s definition of normal.

    Upon graduating high school, Ian joined the military, specifically the Special Forces, where he spent three years. After three years there, and reaching the rank of Captain, Ian was approached to take part in a series of Black Ops missions, all off the record sort of deals. Several of these missions involved attempts to take out various Xexan cells, with usually very little success. These missions exposed Ian and the elite team he fought with to the utterly inhumanity of the Xexan scientists. However when faced with enemies that have weapons one doesn’t understand, problems are frequent during missions. One of these problems, occurred just after Ian turned twenty four, during his fourth year in the Black Ops. During a raid on a small Xexan base, Ian’s squad was cornered by a large number of enhanced soldiers and captured.

    Despite a great deal of torture, and threats of performing various experiments on him, Ian both stubbornly clung to life, always telling his torturers that the government would find him, and kill them all, and if they didn’t, he would. Finally, one particularly intrepid scientist got an idea. While hacking into government files and surveillance was all fine and good, it was often best to have some kind of inside man, just to be sure. And with all their advanced technology, they could even ensure that this inside man would no betray them, and if he dead, they would be dead before three words left their mouth. The scientist told Ian that as a “reward for not dying, you can rest easy knowing that you are going to be betraying that government you love so much”. And within twelve hours, Ian had undergone several surgical procedures, designed to prevent him from ever revealing what had happened there, and making him loyal to the Xexan cause. Also, to ensure that their spy was the best of the best, just in case they needed him to assassinate someone important, or something of that nature. To this end, many of his bones have been artificially reinforced. During the various torture sessions, several scientists had started making various genetic mutations as well, mostly involving the Eevee family, although one scientist got the bright idea to add a Gallade in there to instill a sense of honor, and thus prevent Ian from killing himself.

    With all of this done, Ian was released, and after some very crafty lies, was allowed to return to service in the Black Ops. Medical scans totally missed much of what the Xexan had done to him, and what was found was deemed to be the after effects of torture, so not a soul suspected the far more sinister reality. For the next five years, against his will, Ian fed information to the Xexan, and even performed a few very covert missions for them, all off the radar and the like.

    Other:
    Contents of Ian’s backpack are as follows: Broken down M82 Sniper rifle, broken down M4 carbine, and ammunition for both, combat knife, rations, bandages..

    POKÉMON

    (all appearances are species standard)

    NAME: Sauron
    SPECIES: Salamence
    GENDER: Male
    PERSONALITY:: Ian captured Sauron during his time in the Black Ops, during a rare mission into Hoenn, as a Bagon. It took most of his military career to train the bloodthirsty dragon, and even now, Sauron will occasionally ignore Ian’s orders and rampage. Not matter what, the others, except for Abigale, give Sauron a wide berth, since he is prone to fly into homicidal rages, causing incredible destruction.

    NAME: Abigale
    SPECIES: Volcarona
    GENDER: Female
    PERSONALITY: Ian did not capture Abigale. Instead he obtained her in a trade with one of his squad back in the military. He gave the man a Steelix and received Abigale in return. Despite Sauron being the most insane of the group, Abigale is by far the strongest member of Ian’s team. She is calm, collected, and generally doesn’t enjoy combat. However, if battle is required, she is more than willing to destroy her opponents.

    NAME: Motor
    SPECIES: Rotom
    GENDER: Genderless (Will be referred to as male for sake of my sanity)
    PERSONALITY: There really isn’t much to be said about Motor. Motor has the personality of a cardboard box, in other words none. No matter what Ian or anyone around him tries, Motor doesn’t show emotions at all, choosing the most logical means to do everything. Everything Motor does is reflective of his namesake, purely mechanical, and utterly devoid of emotions.

    Take a moment to consider just how nothing nothing really is....If you understand this, then you just solved the universe.

    The truth that each person...each soul...is a book. And when we lay our feelings out in the open...and we give them no name...and we give them no author....and we give them no description.....who will actually read them..........?"

    Basically, family life, how they grew up, what their training career was like as a kid, and any education. Since you're role playing an FBI agent, you can basically cover how they became an agent and maybe cover some bits about their career before the Quista incident came up. And if you like, you could cover your character's insight and feelings regarding their take on the incident and how they feel about it, or put that in the Personality section.

    It doesn't need to be anything particularly formal, as in writing up many paragraphs to cover the years and years worth of stuff they went through at the academy or whatever. Just general stuff that could relate to the RP's storyline that covers the basics and what kind of life they're coming from. That's all you need.
