Drew Guildford ♂ | Hometown: Castelia City, Unova Occupation: Rambling Man / Ex-Journalist / Occasional Blogger Age: 27 years | Birthdate: October 3
Standing around 6'1", Drew Guildford is a tall guy. Maybe not the tallest, but certainly not the shortest guy around. His build is much like a runner: slim and lean but still with some muscular tone from regular exercise. Having once been a journalist often out in the field working, Drew has gained a hint of a tan on his face, neck, and forearms. That's about the extent of his tan though, as he really could care less if he looks like a tanned male model on a magazine cover. Drew's hair is close-cropped and a dark shade of black, and his eyes are a bright emerald green. He is usually found wearing a black T-shirt, sometimes but not always featuring either a geeky logo/design or a large silhouette of an Ursaring, and jeans. Over that he wears a black leather jacket. His shoes are a worn pair of white tennis shoes, but when he can get away with it he trades them for a pair of flip flops, which he finds much more comfortable. Atop his head is nearly always some sort of hat, most often a fedora or newsboy hat but occasionally some other type from his large collection such as a Stetson or even a fez. Around his neck Drew always wears two things: a drum key on a thin chain (one of his most favorite mementos from his high school years) and, when he's out of his Pokéball, his Ekans Salazar.
Once upon a time, Drew Guildford was one of the main journalists of his hometown newspaper: the Castelia Tribune. For much of his life he mostly stayed in and around Castelia. Come 2012, however, he got the assignment of his life: paid travel around the world in return for writing a column about his travels. Starting in the far off land of Fizzy Bubbles (where Drew had already been on vacation in a serendipitous turn of events), Drew spent the next year and a half traveling and writing. It seemed the travelling bug hit him though, because he never really stopped. Fast forward to now, Drew has returned to the land of Fizzy Bubbles to see the sights both new and old, this time with some friends. He has officially resigned from his journalism job, though he'll still keep up his blog and guest write pieces to keep some sort of income.
Bio: As is common amongst it species, Korvéo has a fondness for anything shiny and has been known to steal unattended jewelry on occasion. This kleptomaniac behavior, along with being a dark-type, has caused Korvéo to often be viewed as a sign of ill luck. Korvéo's former trainer, however, didn't believe in superstitions and regarded the Darkness Pokémon as one of his most dependable partners, so Drew has decided to cast all doubts aside and accept Korvéo as a part of his team. Incredibly intelligent, Korvéo has been trained to imitate sounds and repeat words, though not as expertly as a Chatot. *To be fleshed out later*
