The Great Rebellion


Recommended Posts

[color=darkblue][size=1] The only sound in the room was the drumming of fingers on the oak table as Morty sat back in his chair, contemplating.

[b]"How long ago were they spotted?"[/b]

[b]"About 12 hours, sir,"[/b] responded the young scout, the sheen on his face belying more than the heat outside. [b]"One of the Shuppet drew our attention to the area. We confirmed and came to report immediately."[/b]

[b]"Rate of progression?"[/b]

[b]"Double-time."[/b]

[b]"How large are their numbers?"[/b]

[b]"At least two full companies, sir."[/b]

[b]"So. They want to run me down before the war even starts."[/b]

A creak from the scout's boot on the floor met his words and Morty looked at the young man. His fists and jaw were clenched tightly, more sweat started to form on his brow, his eyes darted subtly to the side now and again, the obvious thought going through his head: there was going to be fighting, people were going to die and one of those people could possibly be him.

How many more would be like him once he informed the rest of the troops, Morty wondered to himself. A lot, more than likely. Both young and old were mixed in the ranks that had been quickly formed in Ecruteak to defend against the very thing headed their way. Different levels of experience, different perspectives...and every one of them had something to lose, no matter how small it may be. There would be a lot of uneasy minds in the crowd once the news hit, but it came with the territory. War is an unsettling beast.

[b]"Be strong."[/b]

[b]"Sir?"[/b]

[b]"Be strong. For yourself, your family and the people that will be counting on you to survive,"[/b] Morty said, standing and looking him in the eye. [b]"We're all in this together now."[/b]

[b]"Sir,"[/b] the young man said after a hesitant moment, giving a sharp salute.

[b]"Dismissed."[/b]

As the scout left the office, Morty stood and turned to his window, pulling the slatted blinds up to look over the city proper. He knew it wouldn't be long before he and his own troops would be fighting for their lives—and their freedom—on those very streets. Actual combat was the last thing he wanted, but there wasn't a choice anymore. The League wouldn't listen to reason: their way was the new way—the only way. So time for lines in the sand had come and the League was putting the first foot across.

[b]"We're all in this together,"[/b] Morty murmured to himself. [b]"Either we'll all rise or we'll all fall."[/b]

He looked to the Pokéballs lining his belt and thought all the times he and his Pokémon had been tested before and knew that none of them compared to the battle they were about to face.

[b]"...Ho-oh protect us,"[/b] he said, and turned to rally his men.

[b][center]Sign-up Sheet[/center][/b]

[b]Name:[/b]

[b]Age: [/b] (Note: Individuals must be at least 17 to be considered by recruiting agents.)

[b]Gender:[/b]

[b]Appearance:[/b] Either description or image will suffice.

[b]Allegiance:[/b] [League sympathizer/protester]

[INDENT] [b]The League:[/b] An organization of Leaders and members of the Elite who have stepped in and formed their own government in the sudden absence of the Champion. They have set forth strict rules and regulations that completely replace the former system of leadership and emphasize a solid regiment of uniformity. Everyone works toward the common goal of prosperity.[/INDENT]

[LIST]
[*][b]Sympathizer:[/b] You believe the continent needs order, and you believe the League can bring that order. But order must be enforced, and intelligent creatures or not, Pokémon are tools to further that end. Those who disagree merely need some ... convincing.

[*] [b]Protester[/b]: You believe the League's actions are nothing short of an overt seizure of power and must be resisted. But individuals cannot stand against a unified whole, so you look to those already leading the way and join them. Sometimes force can only be opposed with force.
[/LIST]
NOTE: Although sign-ups for League will be accepted, protesters are preferred. Any League sign-ups must be approved by the creators, and the judging criteria are totally subjective. No League slots are guaranteed; all who wish to submit a League sheet are encouraged to have a protester variant sheet as back-up.

[b]Status:[/b] [Gym member/freelance recruit/mercenary]

[LIST]
[*][b]Gym Member:[/b] Specify under which leader your character is and how long they have been with that gym. Gym members are more likely to have early leadership roles.

[*] [b]Freelance recruit:[/b] Specify which leader recruited the character. Recruits will not usually start out in high positions, but their versatility may make them more valuable over time, depending.

[*] [b] Mercenary:[/b] League sympathizers only. Specify which leader hired the character, and remember: money is a flimsy allegiance at times. Some mercenaries live and die by the contract, some sell to the highest bidder.
[/LIST]

[b]Bio:[/b] Brief summary of character’s history. Don’t want the life story, just the important bits. How they started, influences, goals, defining moments, etc.

[b]Personality:[/b] Same: brief. Don’t give us the entire rigamarole up front. Give your person room to develop.

[b]Primary Pokemon:[/b] These are your main boys. Your A-team, your go-getters. Battle experience and prowess should vary among them (no critters are trained equally), and some minor weaknesses are encouraged. Gym members will probably have a list skewed slightly towards the type of gym they fight under, while recruited trainers will likely have a more diverse set. Lists composed solely of overpowered Eevee evolutions, or similar broken sets, will be summarily refused.

[center]---[/center]

Keep in mind, this is intended to be a story-driven game. Battles and fighting will play a large part, but they will not be the entirety of the game. Characters with more inexperience and room to grow and become valuable of their own accord will probably be more fun to play than characters who are locked into a certain avenue and whose value is already predetermined, and will be looked upon more favorably in many instances. Build your characters with that in mind.

The backstage will be up in due time. Until then. ;3[/color][/size]

Ah yes, I remember this RPG. It's too bad it died the last time... what is it with Pokemon RPG's on this site? If you remember me from the last version of this RPG, you know that I played as five characters last time, which got to be a hassle. This time I'll only sign up as one character, though, as that will be a whole lot easier for both of us and whoever else would like to sign up. I will post my signup as soon as I am done with it.

[COLOR="DarkOrchid"][FONT="Times New Roman"][b]Name:[/b] Saitsu Egreye

[b]Age:[/b] 23

[b]Gender:[/b] Female

[b]Appearance:[/b] often wears black with dark blue contrasting colored pants or belts.

[b]Allegiance:[/b] Protester

[b]Status:[/b] Gym Member: Cerulean Gym, 8 years.

[b]Bio:[/b] Saitsu joined the Cerulean gym in her teens, partially as a way to rebel against her conservative family's values but also because of her love for water pokemon. Misty's stage manager for the majority of her shows and other engagements, Saitsu is an indispensable part of her entourage, and also considered a pretty heavy hitter of Misty's inner circle. She is motivated by a desire to see justice done and she disagrees with the League's almost shameful use of power and rigidity to control a confused populace. She, like Misty, believe that if Lorelei were still at the Indigo Plateau, she wouldn't stand for the League's methods or their justifications for said methods. As such both of them act in accordance with their beliefs.

[b]Personality:[/b] Taciturn and thoughtful, slow to anger but once roused, will not stop hitting until the enemy is down. Saitsu is famous for her calm demeanor which she'll simply say is only noticeable when contrasted with Misty's bombastic and dynamic personality.

[b]Primary Pokemon:[/b]
[i]Lapras[/i]: Female, light blue, silver shell. Sing, Surf, Body Slam, and Ice Beam. Saitsu's first pokemon, and much larger in size than the one you'd all know from the TV series.

[i]Seadra[/i]: Male. Hydro Pump, Ice Beam, Dragonbreath, Hidden Power. Saitsu's second and only male pokemon.

[i]Chinchou[/i]: Female, dark blue body and very pale antenae. Thunderwave, Confuse Ray, Surf, Thunderbolt. This is the pokemon that everyone underestimates and usually ends up kicking themselves for later.

[i]Dratini[/i]: Female, newly hatched, currently undergoing some very extensive training. Extremespeed, Thundershock, Twister, Leer.

[i]Other Pokemon/Non Battle[/i]: Saitsu is currently raising [from eggs] a Shellder and a Lotad. Both are usually in the aquariums in Misty's gym and are extremely young.[/FONT][/COLOR]

[FONT="Franklin Gothic Medium"][SIZE="1"][COLOR="Navy"]Oh hey, gotta get in on this one.

Name: Terry Nimitz

Age: 22

Gender: Male

Apperance: Wears mostly jeans and t-shirts, always with a matching beanie-cap. Dresses very casually. Has rough Brown hair that is rarely combed.

Allegiance: Protester

Status: Freelance Recruit (Ecruteak Gym)

Bio: A prodigy from the Johto region, Terry was one of the most talented trainers to emerge from his hometown of Olivine City before the league took over. When the conflict broke out, Terry was quickly recruited by Morty of Ecruteak City, who immediately placed him in the 1st squad. Terry is not fighting for any particular reason other than to see peace restored to the region. He is a gifted leader due to his ability to seemingly outwit the opposing forces with relative ease.

Personality: Compassionate towards both his Pokemon and his fellow troops, yet ruthless towards his enemies in battle. Terry believes that steadfastness when battling will net the team a victory. He has remarkable patience.

Primary Pokemon: Typhlosion, Scizor, Haunter, Espeon[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE=1]Name: Cam Roland

Age: 17

Gender: Male

Appearance: On the tall side, mid-length messy red hair, green eyes, freckles, usually seen in blue jeans and a green t-shirt, almost never seen without his favorite blue denim jacket and black headband.

Allegiance: Protester

Status: Freelancer under Claire.

Bio: Former Saffron citizen who moved to Blackthorn with his parents 7 years ago, bringing only a few household items and his childhood friend/starter Pokemon, Ruby the Cyndaquil. Rubbed Claire the wrong way upon first meeting her (being ten and all,) and has been trying to surpass her as a Trainer ever since.

Personality: Easygoing and lazy sometimes, but stands for his beliefs and is especially passionate about battling. Also a bit eccentric, spouts odd non-sequiturs from time to time if left alone. Ruby seems to understand most of them, though.

Primary Pokemon:
[B]Ruby (Quilava, female):[/B] Cam's starter. She evolved about 6 months after they arrived in Johto and Cam has been trying to get her to do it again ever since. Considering all the training, it's probably not going to take much longer.
[B]Atlas (Larvitar, male):[/B] A recent acquisition. When Cam was about 16, he accidentally stumbled off of the beaten path to Mt. Silver. He managed to capture Atlas, then nearly got himself killed when Atlas' mommy arrived.
[B]Albi (Dratini, Male):[/B] Received from the Dragon Master, whom he somehow mistook for Santa Claus when he was ten. The kindly old man took it in good humor and presented Albi as a gift, which Cam's parents immediately confiscated and turned into a family pet in order to keep it from getting too dangerous for their young son. The lack of battle over the past 7 years has kept it fairly docile, if a bit lazy.
[I]Cam supports the general six-member party guideline, as it assures that each Pokemon can get the attention they deserve. He hasn't really decided what else to add to his party yet, but he's had his eye on the Sneasel population in the Ice Path.[/I][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Calibri]I apoligise for the inconvenience, but it seems I forgot to include a clause in the sign-up sheet when I sent it to my counterpart.

Each character's primary (and almost certainly other) Pokémon should be restricted to the continental region (i.e. Johto and Kanto) given the current political situation and other logistics which would be rather tedious to get into at present. [strike]This means that so far, Buziel, Milotic, and Grotle will need to be replaced.[/strike]

There may be third-generation Pokémon appearing from time to time for purposes of the story—in the interests of openness I will go ahead and say that my character, who left on a trip for Hoenn some time before the current tensions arose and has just recently returned, will have one or more from that region—but other than that, I ask that the later generations be avoided.

[COLOR="DarkRed"]Korey[/COLOR], if you have any questions concerning Milotic, please PM me or [COLOR="DarkRed"]Kei[/COLOR].

Other than that, so far so good.[/FONT]

And now for the shortest signup I've done in a long time... I know it's an odd character, but hopefully she'll work...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

[COLOR=green][B]Name:[/B] Suneora Ferenachi
[B]Age:[/B] 22
[B]Gender:[/B] Female
[B]Appearance:[/B] Suneora's a little on the short side, at just under five feet tall. Her raven hair cascades down to below her shoulders in loose curls, her face resembling a blushing pearl underneath. her eyes the colour of emerald. Her clothes are light and flowy to complement her curvy figure and to make traveling a bit more comfortable. The green shirt she usually wears has a tie in the back and sleeves that go down to her elbows; her skirt shows colours of white and rose. On her feet are pair of beige-coloured boots, and she carries a large maroon shoulder bag for holding all her possessions.

[B]Allegiance:[/B] Protester

[B]Status:[/B] Another freelancer under Claire

[B]Bio:[/B] Suneora's past is rather interesting: she comes from another planet! (But don't worry, she's still human.) I could go into much detail about the planet of Orenya, but the main things to keep in mind are that there the sun never moves across the sky, and many magicians and wizards dwell there. Unfortunately, Suneora was neither, which dimmed her chances of belonging to a society dedicated to protecting the peace of the planet. However, that all changed on Suneora's twentieth birthday, when she suddenly found herself in Johto by way of a mysterious portal.

The first place Suneora came across was the Dragon's Den, where she saw Claire training with her Dragonair. However, at the time, Suneora knew nothing about Pokemon, and her English was still quite poor. To make a long story short, Claire spotted her and greeted her, and eventually coaxed Suneora into telling her where she was from. Claire didn't completely believe her, but at least she didn't laugh at her, and even let her watch one of her gym battles. After that, Claire had a meeting with the visiting Professor Oak, who Suneora later talked to and learned all about Pokemon. The Professor even gate her her first Pokemon after all was done.

When Suneora left on her Pokemon journey, Claire told her to come back to Blackthorn when she got stronger as a trainer. But she did get to do a lot of traveling, and training... but there was also bad news. News of a League formed by some of the gym leaders broke out, and war started. So when Suneora returned to Blackthorn two years later, instead of facing a friendly battle with Claire, she faced a summoning of military forces, for Claire was leading an army to fight this league. However, Claire did tell her about what the League was up to, and recruited her when she expressed her opinions on how evil this league sounded.

[B]Personality:[/B] Wisdom is Suneora's strongest suit. She's one of the most respectful people anyone will ever meet, and is careful to act out of good judgment. However, she's still naive about some things, and because she lived in a totally different culture for twenty years, her views of the world are a bit different. And although she's excellent at being amiable and courteus to people, she's terrible with computers and other technology. This even includes a Pokedex and Pokeballs, which she usually doesn't believe in using.

[B]Pokemon:[/B]

[IMG]http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpicon/dpicon006.png[/IMG] Morna was Suneora's first Pokemon, and she has definitely grown a lot from the little Charmander she once was. She is Suneora's main battler and also a good means of transportation, and special in Suneora's eyes because she reminds her of a pet dragon the Ferenachi family had.

[IMG]http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpicon/dpicon053.png[/IMG] The first and only Pokemon Suneora captured was a Meowth, who she named Runai. Now she's a Persian, thanks to much traveling and battling.

[IMG]http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpicon/dpicon152.png[/IMG] Midori is a small Chikorita, and he's not that fond of battling, but Suneora loves him anyway. She hatched him from a mystery egg bought at some festival.[/COLOR]

I remember this RPG. I'm definitely giving it another go. I'm using my character from last time, although some changes were necessary. Everything's been discussed with Kei, though, so Aesera's back in action.

Heh, this is the first thing Ive done on OB in months.


Name: Aesera Alkalero

Age: 28

Gender: Female

Appearance: [COLOR=black]Aesera is a rather tall woman, standing at well over 6 feet in height. She's pretty good-looking, but not someone who would usually be described as beautiful, as she keeps herself in good physical shape and many people's idea of 'beautiful' would be unhealthy. Aesera is in very good shape and looks like it. She has a couple small scars on her arms and one large one on her upper left leg that's usually under her clothing.[/COLOR]

Allegiance: League

Status: Recruit. Recruited by Falkner.

Bio: Aesera is not a native of Johto or Kanto; she was born in Lilycove City in Hoenn, the youngest of three children. Aesera was interested in becoming a trainer in large part because of her sister, Katrina, who was a trainer, and one of the best. Aesera wasn't trying to follow in her footsteps; it was simply that Katrina was responsible for introducing her to the idea.

Aesera got her start as a trainer in Kanto; her brother knew Professor Oak, and was able to get him to provide Aesera with her first Pokemon. She traveled around the various regions for quite some time, and became a very skilled trainer, although not at her sister's level. She was especially good at the strategic end, thanks to her often unorthodox strategic style.

In her travels, Aesera became interested in the myths and stories surrounding the various so-called 'legendary Pokemon'. Everyone has personal interests; that became one of hers. As a result, she knows quite a bit about the legends. She learned as much about them as she could during her travels.

Eventually, Aesera decided to take a break from her life as a trainer, and settled in Johto's Violet City, a place she'd found she liked on visits there durring her travels. She took a position at Violet's Trainer's School, helping teach new trainers the basics. She did stills engage in trainer activities herself sometimes; in particular, she was more than willing to battle with anyone who wanted to.

When tensions between the League and its opponents began to mount, Aesera was recruited into the League forces by Violet's Gym Leader, Falkner. She assumes that Falkner did so because of her reputation for creative and effective battle strategies. It certainly wasn't because of any familiarity with her; the only time she'd met Falkner previously was when she challenged the Violet City Gym for its badge. But regardless of the reason, it happened, and now Aesera is preparing for whatever the war may bring.

Personality: Aesera is, first and formost, a pragmatist. It's why she supports the League, despite personal objections to some of their policies; a strong government is, she believes, a necessity, and flawed as the League may be, it is, in her mind, preferable to any of the other currently available options.

Aesera's strongest point of dissagreement with the League is on the treatment of Pokemon. Many in the League see Pokemon as tools, a position Aesera makes no secret of her contempt for (although she's still fairly certain that Falkner didn't know about that when she was recruited). She hates how common this attitude seems to be in the League, and does everything she can to instill an attitude of compassion towards Pokemon in others. She knows this attitude is not exactly favored within the League, but that's not enough to stop her; she's not someone who gives up on anything easily, especially when it's an issue that's important to her.

Primary Pokemon: Espeon, Tyranitar, and Rhydon are the heavy hitters of Aesera's team. She also has a Pigeot which, although not quite as tough, is no slouch in battle. The newest additions to her six-member team (a standard she wholehartedly agrees with) are Sneasel and Flaffy.

[B]Age:[/B] 29
[B]Gender:[/B] Male

[B]Appearance:[/B] [URL="http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z158/Allamorph/RP%20pics/GR/teschler.jpg"][COLOR="Blue"]Saul[/COLOR][/URL]; well-kept, wears mostly polos and button-downs, khakis, and comfortable shoes; has a utility belt on which he stores small, easy-to-access tools and equipment.

[B]Allegiance:[/B] Protestor (neutral at present)

[B]Status:[/B] Former gym member under Blue (Viridian Gym)

[B]Bio:[/B] Though a typical bright-eyed trainer kid at first, Saul never became enamored with any one specific type or breed of Pokémon. Instead his interests drifted towards functionality and versatility, especially in non-standard battles such as pairs or one versus three. Saul joined the Viridian gym shortly after Red drove Giovanni from it and spent several years as a respected subordinate of Blue. He has been retired for some time now, and currently supports himself as a field journalist for several distinguished Pokémon publications.

[B]Personality:[/B] Perceptive and personable, with a reserved wit. Saul makes friends fast and earns respect easily with his sound and balanced assessments of situations. He also relies significantly on input from his Pokémon; two and three sets of eyes are better than one, to his mind.

[B]Primary Pokémon:[/B] Ninetales (starter); Blastoise; Raichu; Persian; Pidgeotto.

[INDENT][U]NOTE:[/U] this list reflects Saul?s mainstays during his time as a young trainer. Under Blue he often rotated out his Persian for a Nidorino, and occasionally his Pikachu (before Blue gave him a Thunderstone) for a Scyther. However, he does not believe in locking in to one particular list, and has avoided the tournament for years.[/INDENT][/FONT]

[b]Name:[/b] Valencia Marsters
[B]Age: [/B]26
[B]Gender: [/B]Female

[B]Appearance:[/B] Medium-build, tanned skin, medium-short black hair (usually looks a bit wild, but is kept back by some form of headband), honey-brown eyes (wears glasses); usually in a well-fitting T-shirt and some sort of denim bottoms and a beat-up pair of tennis shoes, never seen without a single-shoulder backpack full of traveling gear and other necessities.
[B]
Allegiance:[/B] Protestor (currently neutral)

[B]Status:[/B] Former Gym member under Blaine

[B]Bio:[/B] Valencia was never more than an average trainer in her heyday, but there was thing she was particularly good at with Pokémon: blowing stuff up. For that reason, she dropped her League challenge and focused herself on more...destructive talents, as it were. She worked as an expansion consultant for a time before going back to the battling circuit, getting in with Blaine. She retired a few years ago and went back to consultant work for a company based in Pewter City.

[B]Personality:[/B] Can be seemingly oblivious at times, but she has her sparks of idea and a very smart tongue. She's kind toward people and tends to keep a level head, but can have a very gung-ho attitude if she becomes impassioned.

[B]Primary Pokémon:[/B] Magmar (starter), Voltorb, Graveler, Raticate, Skarmory. (Note: There are other Pokémon she keeps stored for use depending on the job.)[/color][/size]

[COLOR="Red"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][B]Name:[/B] Haru Corbel

[B]Age:[/B] 18

[B]Gender:[/B] Male

[B]Appearance:[/B] Stands at about 5'10, has eye-length straight blond hair, and has light blue eyes. He usually wears dark clothing, typically a T-shirt(which is usually covered by a black vest) and blue jeans.

[B]Allegiance:[/B] Protester

[B]Status:[/B] Freelancer under Flint

[B]Bio:[/B] Haru and his family moved from Goldenrod City to Viridian City about ten years ago.

Haru began his League challenge when he turned 15. However, although he managed to defeat all eight Gym Leaders, he was easily bested by the Elite Four. Haru then decided to devote his time to training, going back and forth between the Kanto and Johto regions for about six months. Eventually, he decided it was time to take on the Elite Four again, after a year's worth of training, but it was around this time that the Champion disappeared and the League began to take over. Haru went home for about a month, then set out to go against the League- he could not stand for what they were doing. His new journey did not take him far though- as soon as he arrived in Pewter City, he was approached by Flint. Flint had been quite impressed by Haru's skills and saw that he had much potential they first met, and thus, seeing him as a valuable assets, immediately recruited Haru as a Protester.

[B]Personality:[/B] Haru is usually quite friendly and easygoing. However, he knows when to be serious, and can quickly switch gears when the situation calls for it. It is also next to impossible for Haru to lie.

[B]Name:[/B] Maya Locke

[B]Age: [/B] 18

[B]Gender:[/B] Female

[B]Appearance: [/B] [URL="http://i33.tinypic.com/16hqejm.png"]Bada bing.[/URL] [let it be known I am EONS better at pixeling than that. consider it a placeholder until I feel like shading it.]

[B]Allegiance:[/B] Protester

[B]Status:[/B] Freelance unit. Recruited by Claire.

[B]Bio:[/B] Maya spent the first few years of her life in Cianwood City, living with her sickly, but kind father; her mother died shortly after she was born. After her father became too ill to take care of her, and due to her dream of becoming a strong trainer, her father sent her to live in the Dragon's Den, in Blackthorn City.

It is in the Dragon's Den where she spent the majority of her life, and while she was treated well, she had very limited access to the outside world. As such, her knowledge of the state of the world, as well as particular customs, is minimal at best. But after being recruited by Claire, she has begun to traverse Johto in an attempt to become more familiar with the world as it is. She is currently residing in Goldenrod City.

[B]Personality:[/B] Well-disciplined, if not cynical and somewhat distant, though this could be the result of being rather naive to the rest of the world.

[B]Primary Pokemon:[/B]

[IMG]http://i36.tinypic.com/zxvn.png[/IMG] Gyarados, starter. Maya's had this one since she was a little girl, catching it on her own on the shores of Cianwood when it was just a Magikarp. The two obviously have a very close bond -- some even say interacting with Gyarados is one of the few things that makes her genuinely smile.

[IMG]http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/4/4e/148MS.png[/IMG] Dragonair here, back when it was a wee Dratini, was given to Maya when she turned 13. Kinda would like to evolve soon, but Maya doesn't seem to be in any hurry...

[IMG]http://i38.tinypic.com/29y59a8.png[/IMG] Phanpy is the first Pokemon Maya caught when she left the Dragon's Den. It's still very young, but excited to fight when it can.

[IMG]http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/e/e4/240MS.png[/IMG] Magby is the most recent addition to her family, although, currently, it is merely an egg. Given to her by the Day Care Man outside of Goldenrod just as she arrived, it'll probably be awhile before it hatches.[/SIZE][/COLOR]

[B]Gender:[/B] Male

[B]Appearance:[/B] [URL="http://img176.imageshack.us/img176/5442/thisguyissexybyjacksonv.jpg"]Click[/URL]

[B]Allegiance:[/B] Protestor

[B]Status:[/B] N/A at the moment

[B]Bio:[/B] Ayden moved around a lot when he was younger due to his parents' divorce. He spent his summers traveling with his mother, an aspiring pokémon coordinator. But the majority of his time was spent living with his father, a paleontologist, in Goldenrod City. Because of his father's job, Ayden was exposed to many types of pokemon from an early age and he sought to join the family business. After he finished school, Ayden traveled as much as possible researching ancient and legendary pokemon. Ayden views the League's stranglehold on the land as wrong. But more importantly, he finds their restrictions on pokemon research infuriating.

[B]Personality:[/B] Curious and thoughtful, Ayden is a welcoming person, but tends to be a bit narrow-minded when something conflicts with work. He views The League's ruthless attempt to seize control as unnecessary. Ayden's pokemon are very integrated in his work and, but they aren't well trained for battle.

[B]Gender:[/B] Male

Appearance: [URL="http://img121.imageshack.us/i/bluehair02.jpg/"][U]Allan[/U][/URL]

[B]Allegiance:[/B] Protester

[B]Status:[/B] Allan is a brand new recruit under Claire.

[B]Bio: [/B] Allan has always considered training and battling with Pokémon something one did as a leisurely pastime, much to the dismay of his parents who did everything in their power to push him further up the ranks. However, Allan has always disagreed with forcing anyone to fight. Disillusioned by his parent’s need for increased status as well as the League’s now overly rigid control, he has left home and joined up with others who do not support the League. He is currently staying in Goldenrod City.

[B]Personality:[/B] Coming from a fairly well to do family, Allan is a bit naive since he has never had to deal with any form of true hardship. He is blunt and outspoken, but truly cares for his Pokémon.

[B]Primary Pokémon: [/B]

[B]Jolteon:[/B] [SIZE="1"][starter][/SIZE] This was Allan’s first Pokémon ever. Initially an Eevee, she has since evolved into her current form.

[B]Furret:[/B] The second Pokémon that Allan ever got, it was a gift from his mother shortly after he got Eevee, and the two are inseparable.

[B]Chikorita:[/B] Randomly obtained a few years back. The two are still learning to work together.

[B]Vulpix:[/B] Also randomly obtained, however unlike Chikorita, the two have had better luck learning to work together.

[B]Dragonair:[/B] Allan was given this one by his father shortly after he declared that he was leaving to join those who are protesting the League’s actions. As such, they have little experience working together. [/COLOR][/FONT]

[B]Name:[/B] Kyle

[B]Age:[/B] 19

[B]Gender:[/B] Male

[B]Appearance:[/B][IMG]http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q85/MuuhPuar/HeartGold_SoulSilver_Silver.png[/IMG]

[B]Allegiance:[/B] Protestor (Neutral for the time being)

[B]Status:[/B] Freelance Recruit - Chuck

[B]Bio:[/B] Born on Cianwood Island, Kyle was weak in comparison to the other kids. At age 10, his life was impacted by two very critical events in his life. His sister met a boy and moved with him to Goldenrod City. A few months after, his father was sailing in a private fishing boat and was attacked by what was declared a pod of Gyarados’. Then, at age 13, Kyle moved in with his sister due to financial problems at home. His brother-in-law would play Kyle’s role-model for the next few years, teaching him about the world in a way that was outside of an island that got most of it’s traffic from the Gym. It was also during this time that he was shown a picture of two women that he would recognize for the rest of his life. In a list of Gym leaders from across the world, there were two women the caught his eye: The Cerulean City Gym Leader Misty, and the Lavaridge Town Leader Flannery. He had become totally infatuated with these women that he had never met before. He returned home to Cianwood after two more years, where his mother greeted him with a new friend. She had bought a pokemon for him to play with. Then, when he was became 17, he started a journey to explore the world. He started in Olivine City and traveled down towards his sisters home. He only spent a few months on this journey and then returned home to take care of his sickly mother. Now, he tends to go about town and help out those who need it, with his duties to his family taking main priority, and his job for Chuck second.

[B]Personality:[/B] Kyle has always been a bit of a joker. Never taking a scenario too seriously. The only things he takes seriously is work, battle, and Gyarados. He has an utter hatred for the pokemon and is currently trying to find a pokemon to help battle them. Aside from all this, he likes to eat, sleep, play video games, and just hang out when he’s not busy.

[B]Primary Pokemon:[/B] - [U]Hitmonlee[/U]. His first pokemon. His mother bought it for him as a playmate, but since then, it has become his best friend. It shares the same personality traits with him and the two have a bond that is almost psychic.
-[U]Pinsir[/U]. This was the first pokemon Kyle caught. He acquire it in the Bug Catching Contest in the National Park. At first, it really didn’t listen to any commands, but after Kyle actually challenged it to a fist fight, he started to gain it’s trust.
-[U]Steelix[/U]. Was once his sister’s Onix she had as a teenager, traded with a Metal Coat her husband had for a Magikarp. It really liked Kyle when it was an Onix, but now it just disobeys him for the kicks. Thankfully, it’s aggressive nature matches Kyle’s command style for him.[/SIZE]

[SIZE="2"][FONT="Trebuchet MS"][B]Name:[/B] Harley Kendrick

[B]Age:[/B] 28

[B]Gender:[/B] Male

[B]Appearance:[/B] Harley has short blond hair and light blue eyes. He?s 5? 7??. His usual outfit includes grey jeans, a white button-up underneath a black sweater, and black shoes that he takes off whenever he gets the chance.

[B]Allegiance:[/B] League sympathizer

[B]Status:[/B] Mercenary

[B]Bio:[/B] For Harley, the world is flawed, and Pokemon are a tool for changing it.
As a child, his father was often absent for reasons never explained, so he found a role model elsewhere: A man he refers to as ?Uncle Edmund.?
Edmund was kind enough, though his own view of the world had been warped by his past. He desired a world where everything was done for the good of the masses; he strove for a greater happiness for all through whatever means attainable, and Edmund never spared Harley the details, no matter his age or level of understanding.
Harley hurriedly adopted the man?s skewed ethics, and has continued to support the cause through a route he discovered shortly after turning twenty three: Being a mercenary paid good money, and feeling that his duty lay with those of The League was a bonus. Harley felt falling into the gig was his destiny, and he is following the path he sees before him methodically. The League would be the ones to change the world, shift it in the right direction, and Harley stood tall knowing he would be assisting.

[B]Personality:[/B] Harley is introspective to a nearly crippling degree. He analyzes most everything to its extreme, and his actions reflect the often naïve workings of his mind.
Though he seeks a path to a better world, the means to him are irrelevant; only the end qualifies as important. Living by this rule, his actions are often cruel. Moreover, his social ineptitude removes him from the masses he so desperately feels the need to save. For all that he claims, Harley is out of touch with reality.
*When inebriated, Harley gives in to his more basic hungers.

[B]Primary Pokemon:[/B] Venemoth (starter), Hitmontop, Xatu, Raichu

[B]Secondary Pokemon:[/B] Dragonair (Special Occasions), Smeargle (In training)[/FONT][/SIZE]

[FONT=Verdana][SIZE=1][COLOR=Green]Finally finished it. Now, without further ado...

[B]Name:[/B] Freya Etheridge

[B]Age:[/B] 27

[B]Gender:[/B] Female

[B]Appearance:[/B] [URL="http://i33.tinypic.com/72rc7k.jpg"]This is a link, so you should click it. Even though it leads to my you-call-this-artwork.[/URL]

[B]Allegiance:[/B] Protester

[B]Status:[/B] Freelance, recruited by Morty

[B]Bio:[/B] Freya grew up in Violet City, but moved to Mahogany Town to get away from the rising tension caused by Falkner and his spreading ideals about how pokemon should be treated. She got a job as an accountant with a small but far-reaching company based out of Mahogany Town that makes and sells specialized and custom pokeballs. For her job, she has to do a lot of traveling, and took up pokemon training originally to protect herself on the road. Since she lives and often travels alone, she ended up developing a close bond with her team. Morty recruited her while she was on a business trip in Ecruteak, mostly to manage the protesters' funds, but she will battle if she has to. She respects the League's desire to see order in the world, but thinks they're being really extremist about it, and could never accept the way they treat pokemon. She resides in Mahogany Town and is usually there, but she travels quite a bit.

[B]Personality:[/B] Freya is logical, and usually thinks about things in terms of numbers and probabilities. She can be manipulative at times, but for the most part she's a relatively pleasant person who tries to look out for everyone else's well-being. However, she's almost always really stressed out.

[B]Primary Pokemon:[/B]
[IMG]http://i33.tinypic.com/2e4xchj.png[/IMG] Her Eevee, Emmi, was a present from her parents years ago. She's more of a companion than a fighter, and is usually outside her pokeball. Freya has no intention of evolving her.
[IMG]http://i33.tinypic.com/15rfh49.png[/IMG] Luca, a Nidorina, was the first pokemon Freya caught, when she was a little Nidoran. She is usually gentle, but seems to enjoy battling more than Freya's other pokemon. Since Freya rarely uses her Eevee in battle, she considers Nidorina her starter.
[IMG]http://i37.tinypic.com/2n0twsl.png[/IMG] Misdreavus, named Ven, likes to play and cause mischief. He loves being around people, and enjoys a good battle.
[IMG]http://i38.tinypic.com/mc4tg0.png[/IMG] Rita, her Growlithe, is the only pokemon Freya caught in Kanto. She's lazy, but does what Freya tells her to.
[IMG]http://i33.tinypic.com/34jcbpk.png[/IMG] Her little Chinchou, Mio, is the most recent addition to Freya's team. They're still getting used to working together, but he's warming up to her.
