    It depends on how high he is in the ranks. I'd say he'd have to be among the lowest ranks, as he's probably a new addition. Just saying what I expect someone of that age in the FBI to be.
    Nothing interesting here. Carry on.

    Nepotism does truly and sometimes sadly get young people into high ranking places. So it would actually make since if a 20yr old was high ranked in the FBI if his dad was someone important.

    It's unlikely, but possible. He would definitely be very low in the ranks, however. Very likely fresh out of the academy and not haven't been assigned to too many previous cases.

    If you're still taking reserves, could you please reserve me for a Johto Government Military spot, as this looks really interesting. Also, as a quick question, does the Johto military encompass all aspects (e.g. air forces, navy)? I'll begin work on it right now.

    Alright, here it is. If there needs to be any changes or for it to be longer/shorter, just say.

    Name: Robert Garner

    Side: Johto Government

    Role: Johto Military Branches (Aerial Division)

    Age: 29

    Gender: Male

    Description: Robert, in most respects, is hard to tell apart from most people. He has light brown hair, usually short cut, with very little to no sign of facial hair. He has a long face, with a quite pale complexion. He is just under 6 foot, with quite a lean, light build, representative of his average physical strength (with the exception of his legs and leg muscles). Robert has unusually large feet for his size. His eyes are a grey/blue colour, and often look glazed over, which slightly betray his... unusual psyche. Despite this, he has remarkably good eyesight.

    He often looks quite untidy and messy in his clothing and hair, and almost always wears his military uniform (blue-jumpsuit style clothing) for several days at a time, yet has surprisingly good hygiene. On the rare occasion where he has to go outside, he often wears nondescript shirts and trousers, usually greys, blues and dark greens. Robert's shoes, are again non-descript, usually being polished black. He has a slight stoop to his walk, and tries to avoid the attention of passers-by (which doesn't really work... at all).

    Personality: After the incident (more details in the history section) Robert has been acting very weirdly - compared to "normal" people, that is. He often is very non-attentive towards most people and Pokémon and when looking at them, he often seems to be staring at a point just over their shoulder, thinking of over things (but when questioned, he can recall the conversation easily, despite not paying it much attention). He also has an unnerving sense of calm and reliability, even more accentuated by his monotone voice, which means he is calm and collected from reading a book to being attacked by 10 Tyranitar at once. One of his more odd characteristics is that he will stay silent for many days at a time, all whilst thinking about something quite important. He is also quite a cold character.

    Robert also has a good measure of caution and pragmatism, which have helped him many times. He also has an 'internal ranking' system, where people, Pokémon and objects are measured up using the above two measures as help. This affects how he treats people, how much attention he pays them, and who to side with in an argument, to name three examples. He is a strict follower of government instructions, regulations and orders, and follows them to the letter. He is often brutally honest, logical, and, while not emotionless, can certainly keep them in the back seat. While he is not merciful, he is not cruel either. However, he has a special dislike - more of a loathing, in fact - of the Xexan, who he regards as evil in every sense. This may be due towards his attitude towards them. Whilst anti-social to most humans, he has a certain ... reverence towards Pokémon, especially older ones, which is certainly related to the incident. He also seems very mature, with an unnatural intelligence and unquestionable memory. He also has an unusual love of flying, complemented by his natural/unnatural skill at it.

    (In short, he is cold, fairly emotionless, logical, deadly calm, pragmatic, very, very intelligent and experienced (far more than you would expect from a 28 year old), has a deep respect and reverence for Pokémon (but not humans), and follows government orders and regulations unflinchingly.)

    History: Robert was raised in Oreburgh City, Sinnoh, in the middle class and was quite a normal boy, quite unlike the cold person he is today. This lasted until he was 16 (no, his parents were not murdered by the Xexan), when near the ore mine, he found a piece of old amber, which when touched, discharged... something. No one knew exactly what it is, except Robert, and he isn't telling. While all old fossils have the potential to do what was done, it was a once-in-a-blue-moon (actually, rarer than that) situation. It changed him into what he is today - older, far more mature, more distant (basically, the above paragraph). He almost immediately took the piece to the very new lab, where an Aerodactyl rose, still his only Pokémon to date. It has been guessed (fairly accurately) that the Aerodactyl somehow caused his change. Being fairly savvy in these kinds of affairs, the scientists hauled him off to do lots of tests, brain scans, etc. However, the only thing they found different was his brain, which looked like it had been disassembled and reassembled, with something else added in (A/N: not psychic/magic/any kind of power, to clarify).

    Robert had an immediate rift from his parents from them on. After completing a Master's degree in Pokémon Biohistory (in only two years at that, and no evidence of cheating was every found) and swiftly disappeared. Soon after, he reappeared in Johto soon after an increase of terrorism from Xexan, and joined up with its military, in the air service. After a display of his natural (or more accurately, unnatural) skill of flying, he was moved into the Special Airborne Division after a few years and was enlisted in the North Star Program, using more secret aircraft, and more recently the P-OTW4 II spy helicopter/craft/thing (explained in notes) for specialised, widespread surveillance. Now, he's been called in to use his skills for something new that's sprung up...

    Pokémon:

    Nickname: Eldritch
    Species: Aerodactyl
    Gender: Male
    Behaviour: Eldritch is a large, powerful, imposing Aerodactyl (contrasting his trainer). He doesn't like delaying or wasting time, especially for humans or other Pokémon. He has humongous determination against the universe and everything in it, with colossal physical power and an anger to scare gods. Not something to meet on a dark night. Surprisingly, he treats Robert as an equal - and Robert treats him the same. Eldritch looks fairly similar to other Aerodactyl, but his eyes are slightly demonic/insane, and a with large wingspan. Eldritch, while physically powerful and resilient, is more weak than normal to special attacks, but is decent at dishing out one special attack himself: Ancient Power.

    Other: While physically weak, he is good at running.
    He carries a Baretta on him on missions, and is a good shot with weapons, especially in stressful situations due to his unusual levels of calm.
    The P-OTW4 II is a jet-black (pun intended) 4 rotor helicopter, designed to do surveillance at altitudes of 14 miles (but often a lot lower) over a giant radius, with many new surveillance methods, as well as old with thermal imaging, and cameras with a huge zoom. It also comes with two light machine guns with tracer rounds, to intervene in the most dire consequences.

    Hope this is good enough (it certainly took a while).

    EDIT: Changed Eldritch a fair bit, and added a short version for the unordered monstrosity that is the personality section.

    NAME:
    Yvonne Corellis

    SIDE:
    Quista

    ROLE:
    Supporter

    AGE:
    31

    GENDER:
    Female

    DESCRIPTION:
    Sepia skinned Yvonne stands approximately 5’8” with a pear shape form. The back of her byzantium colored hair with amethyst highlights is low cut and trimmed in such a manner until it vaguely appears wavy. From the crown onward is much lengthier and brushed forward, falling across the forehead to her thick, dark lashes, which outlines her close set, brown eyes. The bridge of her nose is not sharply defined as it rounds off into a cylindrical shape that ends wide and flattened. Her maroon lips are average size and she has straight teeth. Her chest is a modest size, enough to ensure she is female with a fleeting glance. However, her annoyance lies with her hips, thighs and backside, which are much more pronounced than she’d like. Other than that, she’s a comfortable 123 pounds and toned without the rigid definition of muscle.

    When not “officially” reporting, hiding that short mane of hers majority of the time would be a bandana, which she keeps wrapped about her head and knotted at the back. The color varies, but she’s typically seen with an orange one. When not wearing the bandana on her head, she ties it about her neck as a scarf. Atop this accessory often sits a tricolored—black, orange, and white—field cap. Her white shirt is sleeveless and underneath it is a thinner, black tank top. Over this she wears an orange vest with black lining. Her cargo, capri pants is an orange color with black racing stripes down the sides. On her feet are her favorite tri-colored sneakers that match the color of her outfit. She’s not one for a ton of jewelry, but she does wear gold, hoop earrings and a simple bracelet. If reporting on live television or found in a professional setting, Yvonne would wear heels, a skirt suit or knee length dress, and a buttoned blouse beneath.


    PERSONALITY:
    Yvonne has an inquisitive nature and wants to know the reason why a thing transpires or happens in the manner that it did. She is a direct person and will try the most obvious thing first. Her questions and statements are usually stated bluntly as she dislikes roundabout approaches, although she is capable of doing such. She is observant and perceptive, catching and paying attention to the most minute of details. On some level, Yvonne is a risk taker and doesn’t mind putting her reputation on the line if the result will bring about a greater good. Her all or nothing mentality has landed her in several political fires on more than one occasion. However, she is known for bringing injustices and cruelties to light that would have remained hidden otherwise. The downside is that she is biased against large organizations and the government; targeting them with the vehemence of a gyarados if she suspects there is even a slight chance they mistreat their workers, the community, breaking the law or are just being jerks. Not only that, but she dislikes the media for she feels that it either distorts the truths, doesn’t reveal the truths, or both. She blames the media for painting the trainer’s journey as something that didn’t possess serious repercussions. As such, Yvonne is painfully honest and opinionated. She feels that power should be used to help, not oppress, and this had led her to being called a watchdog. Due to the demands of her job, Yvonne is intelligent and can be quite resourceful.

    Majority of the time Yvonne is an optimistic, outgoing, amiable, and determined individual who looks for the best in people. Sometimes her curiosity and doggedness appears in normal conversations unrelated to work, and is seen as intrusive. She is softhearted when it comes to those who’ve had it hard and doesn’t mind helping those in need. If a downtrodden person needs a job, a few bucks, or clothing, Yvonne will provide them with the resources if she is able. She doesn’t mind volunteering at various places that are in need of assistance. She has copious amounts of patience, isn’t the one to really panic, and is generally slow to anger. However, if the right set of buttons is pushed she can become just as pissed as the next person and can hold a grudge.


    HISTORY:
    Yvonne is an investigative reporter who was born to an artistic woman and a serviceman. The place she was born and raised in was Solaceon Town of the Sinnoh Region. Her childhood wasn’t glamorous, nor was it riddled with difficulties. For the lack of a better word, it was normal up until her Pokémon journey. As a child, Yvonne loved television and wanted to be on camera. To be a movie star and work at Poké Star Studios was the eight-year-old’s goal. Time and school eventually tempered this dream. When she reached the age of ten, she did consider going on a journey since that was all kids ever seemed to talk about in school. Even on television it appeared to be a big thing. Commercials always showed trainers happily traveling together, conquering the many challenges that lied before them through hard work and sheer determination. Talk shows appeared to always be riddled with gym leaders, elite four members, champions, coordinators, and the like sharing with the audience the struggles and good times they faced on their journeys. Yvonne wanted to meet new people, explore new places, forge unbreakable bonds, find love, and overcome the hardships that would propel her to legendary status. She and her mother went to the Pokémon Center in order to apply for a trainer’s license. Her father, after careful selection, provided her starting Pokémon. He wanted her to take Vers, but being a military Pokémon it was disqualified from being a registered trainer’s Pokémon, that and Yvonne felt she could handle the road herself. Neither of these things stopped her father from having the Pokémon stowaway in her backpack. That following summer, with the Pokémon chosen by her father and a notebook for keeping track of her ventures, the rookie trainer set off on the path that would lead her to greatness. Unfortunately, Yvonne was destined to be illuminated on the real hardships trainers endured.

    The journey was short-lived. It wasn’t just from the energy required to deal with a journey, which she didn’t quite have, but a few frightening experiences. Yvonne was not, by any means, a lazy, unfit child. According to the people in town, she was considered to be extremely energetic. By the time she reached Hearthome City, however, her body was protesting from the exertion. Camping outdoors wasn’t as exciting as it was made out to be and vowed to never take toiletries for granted. Food ran out quickly and some days she went hungry. These things she anticipated, for the most part. She pressed on though, wanting the illustriousness that waited at the end. Money became scarce, leading her to betting when it came to Pokémon battles. Many battles were fought. Her win-lose streaks were often even and so resulted in her not being financially stable. She did travel with a few struggling, fellow trainers, but decided go the journey alone for a while when she found things missing from her backpack on several occasions. She even caught one person with their hand in her bag after their pained yell woke her up. One of the frightening experiences happened on the way to Jubilife City. En route to the metropolis, Yvonne ran across a gangling boy. While his gauntness stood out to her, it really didn’t alarm her as it should have because she had seen many skinny trainers during her travels. Either that or she assumed that she had the same chances of running into an individual starved to death as she did meeting a legendary Pokémon. When he didn’t take the offered apple or awoke at her shouting, Yvonne attempted to shake him awake. She found his body to be board stiff, which she would later learn was rigor mortis. It didn’t take her long to arrive at the conclusion that the boy was dead. A kid who appeared to be no older than her had starved to death, so the proper authorities later told her.

    This event had left her dazed. Her parents suggested she return home, after she had called and told them what happened, but Yvonne was determined to keep going. It would be something to talk about when she related her story on one of those talk shows. The nail in the coffin came about when she needed to venture through Ravaged Path to Floaroma Town. Prior to reaching the cave, various people had warned her about a trainer in the area preying on young female trainers. They assumed him to be using a psychic Pokémon or one capable of using sing since all victims reported hearing something that sounded like a lullaby prior to the assault. Officers and rangers patrolled the area, but still had yet to find the culprit. As fate would have it, Yvonne had a run in with the unsavory individual. She had one Lola out at the time when she heard the singing. Acting quickly, she plugged her ears, but the sound had already begun to make her drowsy. Lola had already succumbed to the sound when she wasn’t paying attention. While she could scrap for a kid, she was no match an adult. If it hadn’t been for Vers coming to her rescue, her innocence would have been lost. While the attack did scare her, her inability to do anything about it scared her more. The man was apprehended and sent to prison. A female ranger was assigned to stay with Yvonne at Jubilife’s Pokémon Center until her parents came. The criminal was convicted and sentenced to fifteen years behind bars.

    Yvonne shelved her license and gave away all her Pokémon, except Lola who wanted to stay. In retrospect, she wondered why she even went on a journey in the first place since she was never really interested in Pokémon. Afterwards, Yvonne continued her education by attending a normal grade school and going on to a college in Jubilife City immediately after graduating. During high school she worked at a grocery store and a Poké Mart as a clerk. At some point she volunteered at the local Pokémon News Press when they posted a help wanted sign. They gave her poké balls as a form of payment, but seeing as she was no longer a trainer, Yvonne sold the items for money. It is this place that spawned and cultivated her interest in journalism. At the time, however, it was only a mild interest. Yvonne did a mock article of her experience as a trainer. Upon finding and reading the article, the establishment’s owner critiqued her work, saying it was excellent although quite vehement. He asked if she would be interested in being a columnist. Yvonne wasn’t too certain, but with a little prodding, took a step in the direction of something that would become her career.

    While in college, she focused solely on Pokémon trainers and the dangers that awaited them on their journeys. She wanted future adventurers and the public to be aware of what really lied in the path to becoming a trainer. The college began pulling some of her articles, finding them too “negative” or "discouraging." They asked her to omit certain details, ones she found significant, from her work. Needless to say, this didn’t sit well with her and she began writing cynical articles about the college. This did not stop her from wanting the people to be informed and kept sending articles to various places under pseudonyms, including Pokémon New Press. Her intense stance, coupled with interviews and thorough research, actually instigated the Sinnoh government to launch several significant reforms concerning Pokémon training. She interned at various news stations, including one that was located in Goldenrod City, Johto where she would later work as a fulltime investigative journalist covering a multitude of topics.

    She was made aware of something, by a coast guard friend of hers, going on in Johto that potentially concerned a legendary Pokemon. He is uncertain about what he saw and even waves it off, but just out of curiosity, Yvonne went to investigate the scene once things had settled. She isn't entirely sure that it was a legendary Pokemon he had seen and leans more towards it possibly having been some sort of new secret, technology built by the government or an organization with too much time on their hands. Yvonne told him to keep in touch, just in case.


    OTHER:
    Yvonne has won various awards in journalism and even photography. She has most likely has gained some level of notoriety amongst corporations, organizations, and a few government officials. Always on her person are writing tools and small notebooks. On her as well are a variety of small gadgets, which she keeps concealed, that are capable of recording video, sound, and even remotely download digital files, though she refrains from doing the latter without permission. These were made by geeks she had befriended and/or helped previously. She also has numerous contacts at her disposal. As far as protecting herself, Yvonne knows some self-defense and fighting techniques (including some martial arts), thanks to her father.



    POKÉMON

    NICKNAME:
    Vers

    SPECIES:
    Ditto

    GENDER:
    -

    DESCRIPTION AND PERSONALITY:
    Vers is a standard pink blob of a ditto with beady eyes and thin mouth. Vers’ name comes from versatile because that is what this little ditto is to its current owner. It was previously owned and trained by her serviceman father and so Vers has been with the family since before Yvonne’s birth. While capable of transforming into Pokémon and inanimate objects, Vers is also adept at transforming into humans, particularly in shape shifting into a tall, red haired human male who often poses as Yvonne’s cameraman and bodyguard. Unusual for a Pokémon is the fact that Vers is capable of utilizing bladed weapons and even knows some hand-to-hand combat skills in his human form. Being a military Pokémon, Vers normally has a rather stoic and businesslike demeanor; though being around Yvonne has softened it. It is dedicated to the individual to whom it is assigned, though none will come close to having the level of dedication it has for Yvonne’s father. While Vers has an impressive memory for a ditto and is capable of transforming into things through recollection, it still prefers to have a model to work from when transforming. Yvonne has a tendency to refer to it as a ‘he.’



    NICKNAME:
    Lola

    SPECIES:
    Lopunny

    GENDER:
    Female

    DESCRIPTION AND PERSONALITY:
    Lola was the first Pokémon Yvonne caught and one that decided to the stay with her after she quit her journey. She looks like a normal brown lopunny with large, bushy ears and cream-colored tuffs of fur. She stands at about 4’2” and weighs about 80 pounds. Much like Yvonne, Lola is outgoing, perky, and helpful. Making friends with other Pokémon and people is her hobby. Her cheerful attitude usually does wonders with putting people at ease. She assists Yvonne with her investigations, including interviews by conversing with local Pokémon in order to get clues and details that would not have been gotten otherwise. Due to her fastidious nature, Lola has designated herself as Yvonne’s maid and secretary by keeping her office clean and files in order. She does occasionally flirt with male Pokémon she finds attractive. The rabbit still feels guilty about what nearly happened to Yvonne at Ravaged Path and so dedicates herself to her trainer as reparation. Lola's name came from one of Yvonne's favorite cartoon characters.

    Not that anyone cares, but I added a bit more depth to my character's history. That is, I explained how he joined Xexan and also included a small fact in the "other" category.

    Sorry about the delay, guys. Mom's been in the hospital for the third time this year and needless to say, it's been rough. She's back home now, but there's still a ways to go before she gets back to normal again.

    Anyway, since that last Quista spot has been open for a while now, I think I'll take it.

    Finally got it done! Tell me if you see anything questionable.

    Name: Mallory Webb

    Side: Quista

    Role: Quista

    Age: 18

    Gender: Female

    Description: Mallory looks pretty much like any other eighteen year old. She wishes she was taller, but her height evens out at 5’5. Her reddish brown hair falls a little past her shoulders and her verdant green eyes often betray whatever she’s feeling at the time. Mallory also has an average, slightly tanned skin tone, since she doesn’t like to sit out in the sun all that often.

    When comes to clothing, Mallory believes that simplicity is key. She does like to get dressed up, but she likes comfortable clothes like T-shirts, jackets, shorts, tennis shoes, and etc, much more. Lately she has been favoring a T-shirt she got from the Goldenrod Art Festival. Each of these shirts are unique, featuring multiple paint smears of many colors with the logo in the center. The logo has the outline of a Smeargle’s head and states, “Love Your Work”—The Art Festival’s slogan. The shirts were painted by several Smeargle at the festival. She also usually likes to wear hot pink sport shorts, but will also wear a red or black pair.

    Personality: Mallory is a typical kind hearted person. She does her best to remain polite and out of conflict or trouble. As such, she’s a ‘goody two-shoes’ to her fellow classmates and tries to refrain from bashing other people. Mallory also tries to be respectful of her elders and the ‘trolls’ in life, but her patience has a tendency to run out.

    Mallory would rather avoid confrontation when possible, but if someone she loves is under fire, she lets them have it. She may be kind and quiet, but she knows how to defend herself when she needs to. Something else Mallory has trouble with is anxiety, especially for future careers. She tries not to fear for the future, but can let her anxiety get the better of her if she over thinks the situation too much to where it freaks her out.

    Mallory loves to laugh and goof off with the friends she does have and cherishes the times they share together. She loves nature, studying pokemon, reading, playing video games, and tries to maintain a positive outlook.

    History: Mallory was originally born in Phenac City in the Orre Region, but her family eventually moved to Goldenrod when she was 3 because of her father’s job in Government Security. He had applied for it, not knowing he would have to switch regions, but they made it work. Since she grew up in the work of government, Mallory is very interested in current events, history, and politics (although she grows sick of it at times). She has always done her best to devote time to her school work and was an honors student when she graduated this year.

    Mallory was often made fun of because her studies, but she learned to ignore it and proceeded with life. However, her mostly conservative life made her crave little adventures on the side of her studious life, and she would sneak out on occasion and go on roof runs with some of her friends who were experiencing the same situation she was. Now by ‘roof runs’, it means exactly what it sounds, they wouldn’t do anything outrageously stupid, but then again, it’s kind of stupid to do it anyway. She’s sprained her leg once while doing this and has a scraped leg every once in a while, but nothing major.

    One time she slipped off a low apartment roof and into an open dumpster. She was surprised to find a Zigzagoon digging through the contents for food and decided to take it home with her. It didn’t take long for the bond to grow. Gale, now a Linoone, now goes on roof runs with Mallory and her friends.

    Everything was fine and dandy up until some of her other friends invited her to a beach party in Olivine. Mallory was ecstatic, she had never been to a beach party before; only this party didn’t turn out quite like she had hoped…
    Other:

    POKÉMON

    Your character is allowed to have up to three Pokémon. For each of them, use this form:

    Nickname: Gale

    Species: Linoone

    Gender: Male

    Description and Personality: Gale has a relaxed personality, but he always wants to be around Mallory ever since she found him. He tends to pick up random stuff on occasion due to his pickup ability…but Mallory thinks he may just do it because he’s curious. He is excitable, protective, and silly, but also intelligent. He is also longer than the average Linoone by almost a foot.

    Nickname: Comet

    Species: Manetric

    Gender: Male

    Description and Personality: Comet was given to Mallory as a gift from her parents on her ninth birthday. When she first got him as an Electrike, he constantly shocked her on accident because he couldn’t quite control his energy. Once he did though, he became more composed and is a more serious pokemon. Comet can have fun, but he prefers to preserve, observe, and protect; those statues being influenced by Mallory’s father, who works in government security. He was at first jealous of Gale, but has grown used to the Linoone as time has passed.


    Also, is it ok to capture another pokemon at some point? If not, I may add another.

    Name: Jeff Barnes
    Side: Quista
    Role: Quista
    Age: 22
    Gender: Male

    Description: Jeff stands about 6'1" and weighs about 180 pounds. Meanwhile, he has a fair skin complexion and has long, blonde hair that covers his ears and reaches down to about where his jawline is. He also has blue eyes and a fairly athletic build.

    For clothing, Jeff usually wears camouflage-pattern shorts in the summer, and blue jeans in colder weather. He also likes t-shirts in the summer, and hoodies when it's raining or cold outside. In the summer, he'll wear a pair of rugged sandals, and in the winter, a pair of black sneakers.

    Jeff is athletic and has been part of both track and field teams and swimming teams in high school. Speed, agility, and dexterity are his strong points. Meanwhile, he is an endurance runner and swimmer, meaning he may not be super-fast when it comes to sprinting, but he can last longer than most other athletes.

    Personality: Friendly and social, Jeff is often very casual and doesn't bother too much with formal settings. He'd much rather eat at a casual restaurant than get dressed up and eat expensive food, regardless of the occasion and how good the food is. Ideally, he'd rather settle with a $7 dollar burrito than the $50 dollar fillet mignon. Meanwhile, he very rarely gets worried about anything. He figures most of the time things will find a way to work themselves out, and usually he's able to improvise something. He also likes the beach and hanging around the boardwalk.

    Meanwhile, Jeff likes a good party, and likes to go where the action is. In retrospect, he has gotten a few parking, speeding, and reckless driving tickets, but to him, it's no sweat and he really doesn't learn from that kind of thing. Jeff is a break the rules when it's fun kind of guy, and doesn't really think about the consequences. To him, anything that has strict rules can't possibly be fun or worth his time.

    Jeff also works at the Olivine City movie theater, and thoroughly enjoys its employee perks of being able to watch just about every movie that comes out. Besides that, he usually hangs around anywhere that isn't home. He typically doesn't get along too well with his parents.

    Jeff also cares quite a bit for his Pokémon and when he can, lets them in on a good time. However, safety first usually isn't part of their credo. They're much more daring together and don't care about possibly injury or damage.

    History: Jeff was born in Sunyshore City, Sinnoh to his parents James Barnes and Maria Barnes. Jeff was often wild as a young child, making noise, getting into trouble, and made quite the mess. His father James is an accountant, a profession that Jeff was not interested in following in the slightest. Meanwhile, his mother is a teacher, something Jeff never really got along with either.

    Jeff liked the friends, sports, and parties at school, but he hated the work and the standard classes. He somewhat liked science for the fact that labs gave him the chance to screw around with things, but he hated math. Literature classes were alright to him, but history wasn't so much.

    Jeff went on a Pokémon journey for about a year, never following the routine path and simply went where he wanted to. He only collected five badges in no particular order. Shortly after coming back home to head back to school, his father's job relocated him to Olivine City, Johto. Jeff attended high school there and intended to save up for college tuition without taking on student loans by working at the local movie theater. His fellow employees and friends at the theater liked to throw beach parties late at night, but on one night, they were all busy with something else and Jeff was left alone. That was the night he invited Valeros, Mallory, and Carter to hang out with him instead, and that was when Lugia had appeared.

    As of now, Jeff isn't afraid of the Lugia power at all, but he really doesn't have any intention of becoming the next guardian. In truth, he may even try to have some fun with it.

    Other: Jeff is also skilled at picking locks, a kind of hobby that has had some practical uses.

    POKEMON

    Nickname: Vegas
    Species: Staraptor
    Gender: Male
    Description and Personality: Vegas is cool and collected, often acting nonchalantly in front of danger, and doesn't get stressed out or anxious about anything. In terms of appearance, Vegas doesn't look too out of the ordinary, but he doesn't like getting wet or filthy. On the flip side, he'd rather stay away from the groomers as well, and doesn't like getting propped up or pretty for anything.

    Nickname: Max
    Species: Raichu
    Gender: Male
    Description and Personality: Laidback, casual, and outgoing, Max loves being the life of the party, and doesn't mind getting dirty or getting into trouble. He treats Pokémon battles as a kind of sport and sees no difference between the most casual battle ever and the league finals battle of the universe. He'd treat them just the same and just runs in with a smile. In terms of appearance, Max is rough and not very well kempt. He also doesn't like baths.

    Nickname: Puffs
    Species: Dragonite
    Gender: Male
    Description and Personality: Puffs is loving, amicable, and generally looks out from everyone and anyone. He thinks of himself as a protector and a guardian angel of sorts, and generally likes being helpful and appreciated. He generally tries to keep himself clean, but knowing Jeff, he doesn't sit out on a party or a good time either. Usually just a little peer pressure will bring out his wild and fun side.

    Name: Lucas Serenes

    Side: Quista

    Role: Supporter

    Age: 16

    Gender: Male

    Description: Lucas is somewhat short for a 16 year old, standing at about 5 feet and 4 inches. He has pale skin, brown hair that goes about an inch above his shoulders and large sky blue eyes. He has a regular build and often has an innocent look on his face when he's not in a serious mood.

    Lucas' clothes vary depending on the weather. He almost always wears a white T-shirt and black shoes in any conditions. Most of the time he's seen wearing a black scarf and black dress pants regardless of weather conditions. Should the weather either get too hot or too cold for his liking he'll opt to switch his scarf for a black hooded jacket for cold weather and his dress pants for a pair of white shorts for warm weather. For accessories, Lucas wears two lockets around his neck, each containing a different picture. The silver one contains a picture of him with Riolu when he was ten-years old, and the gold one contains a picture of him now with Lucario. Finally, he keeps a blue ocarina on his person at all times.

    Personality: Lucas is an true innocent individual. He never knowingly does anything wrong and has a strong sense of justice. Although gentle, he's always willing to stand up for others as well as fight for what he believes in.

    When meeting others, Lucas starts off friendly and is always happy to make new friends. When he sees a person or Pokemon in trouble he will not hesitate to help them. As a trainer he is confident in his abilities and believes that the bonds with his Pokemon are what give them strength in battle. Lucas tends to treat Pokemon like he would a human being if not more so and views his Pokemon as if they were family, in fact he often calls his best friend, Lucario, his brother. If he happens across a Pokemon that is either scared or injured, Lucas is known to be able to gain their trust and calm them down very quickly. Finally, Lucas is very loyal to those he considers a friend and will not stand for anyone attempting to cause them harm.

    History: Lucas was originally born in Snowpoint City, but around the time he was two years old he fell ill and couldn't recover in the cold conditions. As a result his parents were forced to move out of Snowpoint in order for him to become healthy again. They choose Floaroma Town believing it was an ideal place to raise their son.

    As he grew up in Floaroma Town, Lucas was often bullied throughout his childhood. His only friend at the time being a girl named Lucia Ashford and her Pichu, with whom he became close friends, but he still felt lonely most of the time. Until one day when Lucas was eight years old he set out into the nearby forest and came across a Riolu that had been injured forcing Lucas to bring it home with him. It was apparent that Riolu had been abandoned by a previous owner, which disgusted Lucas. As Riolu recovered Lucas slowly became close friends with it and soon it somehow made the loneliness that Lucas was feeling for so long go away, prompting him to be overjoyed when his parents decided that Riolu could stay with them. Eventually one night Lucas had asked Riolu if it would go on a journey with him, to which it agreed.

    Lucas and Riolu had set out with their friends Lucia and Pichu, both competing in Gym battles and Contests respectively. Over the years they had traveled through Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, up to their home region on Sinnoh. Throughout their journey Lucas had built up a reputation as a skilled trainer, having reached a high placement in every Pokemon League competition he had entered. He also became known for his kindhearted nature and his tendency to help anyone in need. Lucas eventually reached the Unova League where he had made it to the finals for the first time in his career, in the midst of a losing situation Riolu finally decided to evolve into Lucario, something he had never wanted to do, ultimately winning the competition for Lucas.

    Exhausted after the Unova League competition, Lucas decided it was time to give himself and his Pokemon a much needed rest. So he, and Lucia as well after a recent Grand Festival, both decided to go on a vacation trip. The two friends both temporarily went their separate ways as Lucia and her own newly evolved Pikachu opted to go to Hoenn for their vacation while Lucas and Lucario set out for the Johto region.

    Other: Lucas enjoys music and excels at playing his ocarina. He also keeps Lucario out of a pokeball.

    Pokemon

    Species: Lucario
    Gender: Male
    Description and Personality: He looks like any other Lucario, except he's slightly taller and wears a blue scarf that Lucas had given him as a gift. As Lucas' best friend he is never seen too far away from him and is ready to protect him at a moments notice if necessary. When not battling or any serious situation Lucario is about as friendly as Lucas is and can even be fun loving at times.

    Species: Staraptor
    Gender: Male
    Description and Personality: Having been saved by Lucas as a Starly after being injured from fighting against strong winds, Staraptor is very loyal to him. He can be considered the protector of the group, if either Lucas or any of his team mates are in danger he will stand up for them and not back down even if he's at a clear disadvantage. In safer situations he is friendly towards those he trusts while keeping a close eye on those he doesn't.

    Species: Floatzel
    Gender: Female
    Description and Personality: Floatzel tends to be the more laid back out of Lucas' Pokemon, she doesn't take anything seriously unless the situation calls for it and acts respectful towards others. However she can be protective in a dangerous situation and will stand up for her trainer when he needs her too.

    (I intended for this to be longer, but I felt rushed since the RP started today. I've never posted a late sign-up like this before.)

    NOTE: I ended up adding some additional stuff to the end of the background just to help my character get caught up to the present considering I am obviously starting later than everyone else.

    Name: Mason Mercer

    Side: Johto Government

    Role: Military Operative; anti-terrorism unit

    Age: 38

    Gender: Male

    Description: Mason stands at the average male human height of 5’ 11”. He has light blonde hair and grey-ish blue eyes. Due to extensive training in the military, Mason weighs roughly 185 pounds, consisting mostly of muscle mass. Obviously, being in the military, he wears his hair with a buzz cut and with some bangs, using gel to spike them into a peak. Being in a high ranking special ops force, Mason is required to blend in, and thus, has grown a neatly-trimmed goatee mustache.

    While on active duty, he will wear urban camouflage, a mixture of light and dark reds with black and white spattered into it, if he is located in an urban environment; or, he will change into the standard woodland camo that most military personnel use. When off duty, people can find Mason wearing a casual black tee and jeans.

    Due to his high special ops division, Mason has become quite a good runner and decent swimmer. His strength is notable and pain tolerance nearly unheard off; he commands his own unit and thus, a born leader and not a follower.

    Personality: Mason’s anger problem is one of the highly known features about him and with that, comes an incredibly short temper. Due to being an a black op branch of the military, Mason does not have a problem killing a civilian, though he would rather not, or breaking laws in order to achieve the prime objective. He sees the dead as just another casualty of war, and in war, thousands must die in order to save millions.

    Incompetence is one of Mason’s pet peeves, due to a mission revolving around the failed infiltration attempt against Xexan by his team, an organization that Mason would love to see burn to the ground by his own hands,

    In matters of the Quista, Mason never believed that they existed until the reports of the Olivine City incident reached Omega Division (his anti-terrorism unit) HQ.

    Background: Mason grew up in Goldenrod City to wealthy parents by the name of Todd and Mary Wilhelm. In middle school, Mason was sentenced to 2 years of juvenile detention for beating a criminal that broke into his house half to death. Upon being released at the age of 15, his parents made him sign up with the GCPD as an intern in order to receive federal training to become a perfect law abiding citizen. At the age of 18, he enlisted into the Johto Army with the intentions to protect his country at all cost.

    When he was 23, Mason was asked to join the Johto Army Rangers for showing exceptional combat physique, mental aptitude, and the drive to be the best. During the special ops training, he was given a Marmortar to help him on covert missions. At first Magmortar did not trust Mason, but through the 14 years they have been together, they have become partners and are best friends. After years of service to the Rangers, the Omega Division enlisted Mason at the age of 35 and sent him through their rigorous training in order to create a super soldier worthy of Omega.

    After finishing training, Mason was entrusted knowledge about the Xexan Organization. After reading the very few files about them, he learned to hate them with every will in his being. After a failed attempt in order infiltrate Xexan, Mason was interrogated about military intervention with Xexan, in order to get Mason to crack, he was forced to watch all but two of his comrades and all of his pokemon executed in front of him. Luckily though, another Omega squadron came into the Xexan outpost and rescued Mason and his remaining comrades. In order to help Mason cope with his loss of pokemon, his friend Alex Lucero allowed Mason to adopt his Houndoom. After word hit HQ about the Olivine City Terrorist Attack, Mason jumped on the case believing that only one organization had the capability of causing that much pandemonium in such a short period of time. Xexan. Before receiving the briefing of having to move out, Mason was also informed of the direness of the Quista and that they need to be brought in at all cost. The Quista are the primary targets and the Xexan are secondary.

    Other: Mason tends to wield a Famas assault rifle with laser sight and reflex attachments and a Berretta M9 handgun. His Famas’s laser sight appears as a dark green and the reticle of the sight display shows up as neon blue.

    POKEMON

    Name: Chester

    Species: Houndoom

    Gender: Male

    Description and personality: Chester’s fur is ebon black and blood red. His metal exoskeleton that surrounds Houndoom’s in certain location appears more of very bright steel that can reflect visible light. Chester’s personality towards Mason is uneasy just because he is not familiar with Mason and due to the fact that Mason is not Alex, his old master, Chester does not yet fully trust Mason. Overall, Chester’s personality is playful, but when the situation demands it, he will become very ferocious and primal, attacking anyone that he feels to be a threat.
