Information is in the thread in Signups: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=33316

Characters will be listed here, for my convenience. After the characters, will be discussion of the first part of the Tournament, then the second part, and then whatever secret plot comes next. ;)

Please be aware that while you may discuss things here, you shouldn't expect too much of the plot to be given away. Questions may be asked here, however. Also, if you are unsure of what your character might be expected to do, you may request a hint here.

Answers to recent questions will be posted here:

Q: What style of battling will be used?
A: Anime style, with a little twist. ;) Basically, I'll give you the environment (Though you may add anything that can reasonably be assumed to be there, like fallen branches if we're in a forest, etc) and you can do whatever you want. You don't even need to stick to moves. If you're fighting a fire type near an ocean, than by all means, try to push them in. I will, however, be reffing these battles myself, although I will allow assistant refs for tournaments and such.

Q: Any space left?
A: There are 11 people involved so far... I'll allow only 2 more unless you have an exceptional bio.


'Good' points may or may not be specified as to what they are for. I'll tell you privately if you ask, but I don't want others to copy, instead of finding their own thing to do, so I probably won't say what they're for here. A point is written as this- |
| is a good point
| is a mark against you, and the reason will be specified.

The people-

LordZangoose:

Neptune: |

Arusues: | *Godmoding/PPing. There was no way to know Drin was lying at first... And people have actually complained to me over PM about this, so please try not to be all-knowing*

Lonewolf:

Ace:

Diesel:

Celebihunter:

N00b:

Susaska:

Sodapop:

DE:




Special Information: Wild Pokemon
I let people have 6, with 2 backups to get later, for a reason. However, you all WILL be able to catch Pokemon on the way.
I will make a wild appear when I find it appropriate. If it is meant for a certain person, they get the first chance to try to catch it, before others can try for it. If not, anyone may.

A few Pokemon you find may be unexpectedly 'special', with a certain talent or ability, or maybe even be Caliopean. Should you find one of these, I won't say anything until the battle is almost done. If you choose to catch a Pokemon, and that 'mon happens to be special, I will then PM you and tell you.
If it is, you'll be given a choice, since I want the abilities they have to stay secret for a bit.

Either you take a 'normal' version of it, and roleplay it yourself, or you choose the 'special' version, and I play it until all its abilities are revealed and such, and the personality would be clear for someone else to be able to play properly, etc.... At which point, it'll be handed over to you to play, but this may be a bit.

The Special one will be played fairly by me. The Pokemon will retain the personality it had before capture, though it may change some as it gets used to you, and either likes or dislikes you. For example, if it cooperates before capture, I won't suddenly play it as hating you... Unless over a long period of time you neglect or ignore it. ;) It'll be played as a good, competent ally... Unless you CHOOSE to catch something obviously mean, in which case you must tame it before it will be more cooperative.

Hotaru, Female, around 17-19. *** Guide Character! Important!*

Appearance:Standing at a mere 5'2, Hotaru could easily pass for much younger than 15. She's slender as well, with what, for the most part, could be called a child's body. Stick-like arms protrude, but her ribs have slowly begun to fill in. Below the waist she looks more adultlike, running and other exercise have given her some muscle. Hotaru looks almost as though someone took pieces from a child and from an adult, and put them together.

Despite her time in the sun, Hotaru is relatively pale, never really getting truly brown even when she's overexposed to the bright rays. Her hair, likewise, doesn't lighten much- It is deep brown, and doesn't really get that much lighter. Certainly not enough to be even near dirty blond. Part of this, however, is due to the fact that the 'highlights' she gets are not yellow. Her family includes a few redheads, and thus her hair seems to get tiny bits of reddish-brown, not lighter brown or blond, if she is out often in the hot summer sun.

The one thing that really makes Hotaru stand out, aside from a few scars, are her eyes. Like all Caliopeans, they are purple.


Personality: Obviously, due to her native land's culture, Hotaru can be harsh sometimes. She often puts herself first. Tomoe's guidance, however, has left her slightly less heartless. If it doesn't put her at risk she may help someone for Tomoe's sake. Hotaru, however, won't suffer fools gladly. She'll save them only if Tomoe is there- To stop Tomoe from trying to help and getting injured- or when there's something in it for herself.

After years of living with 'Outsiders', Tomoe included, this began to change. However, now that she feels endangered, and knows that several groups of Rookies have been sent from Team Caliope on a secret mission, Hotaru has gone back to her own ways. She's more than willing to use a group of Outsiders to help herself, if it will save her, and she's good at cleverness and cunning. When she's being diplomatic- Something she /has/ learned to do out of neccesity, even if she prefers to be blunt- she's hard to catch doing this, as she's a good faker.

Her Pokemon seem to really set her mood. They certainly seem to have a strong effect on her. Kirei and Brazen seem to have the most effect on her... So the Outsiders with her had best hope that Brazen is around.

For all her toughness, there are, of course, some situations she can't handle. Hotaru, however, has learned the dubious 'art' of 'spacing out' to get away from these. She simply 'dissociates' from what is going on around her, retreating partially or entirely into her mind. This, of course, is only if she can't simply try to fight or be sneaky. She's not one to give up easily, perhaps purely to spite those she is fighting against. As far as weapons go, her preferred ones are a pair of stolen Sai, from TC, in fact.


Hotaru's Pokemon:
Carried ATM:
Raichu, no nickname, female, purple-eyed. While purple eyes aren't totally common in Caliopean Pokemon, they aren't exactly rare, either. They're like blue eyes among normal humans, really. Thus while Raichu stands out now, she wouldn't in Caliope.
Raichu is somewhat friendly. However, she's more attached to Hotaru and Tomoe than anyone else, and would, although reluctantly, betray someone if she felt it was needed. Raichu, like most Caliopeans, can sometimes play people, or string them along and use them. However, relatively speaking, she's one of the kinder ones, and can genuinely care for other people. Raichu is also the only one, aside from the hard-to-befriend Kirei, who knows all of Hotaru's past, and is willing to speak of it- And of Absol. Befriending him will not only get someone information and the possibility of a defender with significant 'sway' among Hotaru and a few others, it would also give them knowledge of her past and of Caliope... As well as a few things about her that'd be useful if someone angers her enough for her to turn against them, such as her easy-to-exploit phobia.
Raichu has known Hotaru since Hotaru was 8 years old. She was born when Hotaru was 2, making her two years younger than Hotaru. TMs: Thief, Attract, Double Team, Hidden Power Psychic.

Bayleef. Female. Nicknamed Kirei by her leader when she was in the Aeshtali clan, this Bayleef doesn't allow anyone else to use her nickname. She's very protective of her trainer, Hotaru, and also jealous and possesive. She often clashes with Raichu, whom she feels she has to share Hotaru with too much.
Bayleef is, thanks to her time in a clan, smart and strong. She's got some knowledge of fighting and spying, but this is coupled with youth, and the impatience that that brings. She's a about a year or two younger than Hotaru, after all, and impatient. While Hotaru is sarcastic and such only when she KNOWS she can get away with it, Bayleef is openly aggressive, and often gets into more trouble than she can handle. TMs: Hidden Power Ice, Facade, Return, Toxic.


Dragonair, no nickname. Male. Dragonair is one of Hotaru's calmer Pokemon. Unlike energetic Raichu, and aggressive Bayleef, Dragonair is usually cool and collected. To others, he may seem aloof, but he's almost a father figure to Hotaru, even if he isn't fond of being in large crowds. Dragonair is generally less obnoxious than Bayleef, but when he gets suspicious- And for a real reason, not just like Bayleef, who is always paranoid- He can be quite cruel. He has a hidden nasty streak. Dragonair is 21. TMs: Icebeam, Thunderbolt, Fireblast,

Umbreon, no nickname, gender unknown. Espeon, no nickname, gender unknown. These two Pokemon have obviously been through a tough battle, or some sort of ordeal, as both are veritably covered in scars. They speak rarely, and only to each other, in hushed whispers. To Hotaru, they communicate with signals. The two are good fighters despite their silence and mental state, and are respected- and given a wide berth- by Bayleef. The two are both 19. TMs: Hidden Power Dark(Espeon), Hidden power Psychic(Umbreon),

Cyndaquil, no nickname, Male. The sole Non-Caliopean of the group, he's at a bit of a disadvantage. This, however, doesn't really bother him, as he simply leaves the fighting to the others. Cyndaquil is also by far the youngest of the group, he's only 12. TMs:


Tomoe, Female, 20-something *** Important NPC!***
The woman running the contest, and also the Outsider who cared for Hotaru since she was a toddler, Tomoe is kindhearted to a fault. She's extremley trusting. However, she's also the one who taught Hotaru to be at least a bit more caring to others, and holds a control over the girl that no one else has.
Tomoe has light brown hair, and green eyes. She often wears bright clothes, favoring tyedyes.

Tomoe currently holds onto Brazen, Hotaru's 20-year-old Arcanine, for her own protection. Brazen, male, is a very large dog, but also friendly. He won't hesitate to harm someone threatening a person he likes, but he isn't truly sadistic, simply a bit vengeful. He's also open to newcomers, and believes some 'Outsider' friends would be good for Hotaru. Together, he and Tomoe could certainly get Hotaru to work together with, and perhaps even be kind to, the Outsiders she wants to 'recruit' to her mission... Problem is, Hotaru doesn't want either of them put in the danger of coming along with everyone on the mission.

Tomoe also has a quiet, friendly Sandslash (24), and a Caliopean Charmeleon(13) Hotaru gave her.


Drin, Female, 18
Trainer in the Competition, and Team Rocket member

Appearance: At 5'4 or so, Drin would never be called tall, but she's not really tiny, either. She is a bit on the slim side, but she's not too scrawny- she just is very active, what with her job and all.

Drin's hair is dark. She used to keep it very short, only a bit past her ears, but now that she is beginning to prefer subtlety and disguises to outright guerrilla tactics, she doesn't feel the need to cut it as often. Her hair falls past her shoulders now, and is usually left loose. If she's trying to avoid getting it caught, or knows she'll be fighting, she'll do it up in a ponytail, or occaisonally pigtails if she is trying to appear younger.


Personality: Drin is a realist. She's not overly optomstic, but nor does she assume that people are always against her, at least without a good reason. After all, if Rockets are discovered, they don't tend to be too well liked.

Drin can be icy and sarcastic at times, but she's caring to those she likes. She's not one for huge displays of emotion- they embarrass her- but she's not a total stoic, either.

Dog Pokemon are the one thing she rarely steals, as Drin admires their loyalty. If the Team needs one, however, she'll grit her teeth and do it, even if she'll be reluctant and resentful of having to do so.

Drin is good at pretending. Unless she chooses to reveal herself- Which she often does if patience evades her- she is usually not discovered. She doesn't prance around in Rocket trappings, after all. She dresses like a normal person would.

For a long time, Drin has been fascinated with the idea of obtaining a Caliopean Pokemon. It'd be dangerous, particularly as she would never know if she entirely had its loyalty- Which would be unlikely anyway considering their opinion of Outsiders- but she's still curious about the place. Though she doesn't know Hotaru is behind the Tournament, or that she might have friends/backup, she does know that Hotaru is a Caliopean, and also that she is considered a relatively weak one, in the main scheme of things. Thus Hotaru seems her best bet for learning more without getting into much danger.

Pokemon (Details to be added):
Precious the Mightyena
Beloved the Houndoom
Zyre the Zigzagoon
Spike the Electrike
Riley the Ivysaur
Vyresk the golden Pidgeotto
TMs: Thief (Mightyena, Zigzagoon) :: Double Team (Mightyena, Houndoom) :: Dig (Mightyena, Zigzagoon) :: Hidden Power Bug (Mightyena) :: Attract (Houndoom) :: Hidden Power Electric (Houndoom) :: SludgeBomb (Houndoom) :: Hidden Power Ice (Ivysaur) :: Hidden Power Ghost(Electrike) :: Toxic (Electrike)


Dabesk, male, 23
Appearance; Dark, floppy, childish hair falls a bit long on him, as he hasn't cut it lately. Dabesk is dark-eyed as well, namely, he has dark purple eyes. Yes, he is Caliopean.

Dabesk is a friend of Tomoe's, in need of rescuing at some point. He can, however, be helpful once rescued.

Pokemon:
Breloom, M, Velbry. Rumored to be part of a small, but competent, clan.
Ralts, M, Grygesk. Ralts speaks a throw-back language to older, more ancient Pokemon, and few around understand him. His relatives were isolated in a mountainous part of Caliope and didn't totally evolve. This, however, has left him with plenty of brute force, if not the mental finesse of most Ralts.
Sygaki, F, Chimeco. A bright and cheery Pokemon who loves to cause confusion. Though it is taboo to mention, rumor has it that she isn't entirely Caliopean. This, however, is untrue, anyway. She is, she is simply, miraculously, devoid of the usual grim attitude of Caliopeans

Details to be hidden until later for the most part:

Koiple, Caliopean, but only for 'himself'. Team Unknown.
Keratrin, Ririt, and Lisra- Team Caliope members of importance to this Roleplay.
Relveen- A rather unusual Caliopean ledian

Lord Zangoose's characters
Name: Ryan O’ Donnell

Gender: Male

Age: 16

Description: Ryan stands at 6’0”, but isn’t a very large person in any other way. He has small, but rock-hard muscles lining his body that have been earned from years of rigorous training. Ryan’s hair is raven black and hangs around his face in strands, sometimes on his face, sometimes to the side. His eyes are grey; however, there are occasionally streaks of vibrant yellow in them, an anomaly whose cause is unknown. He has a large variety of options for shirts, but during battles, he likes to wear his favorite. The shirt background is black, with a few wispy lines of crimson. With the stem starting in, the bottom right corner, and the petals ending below the left chest, a rose resides. Its petals are white, but the base has small streaks of blood-red. In the right breast, a full moon resides in all its whitish-yellow glory. He tends to wear black jeans for his pants, with his Pokeballs resting in his pockets.

Personality: Ryan is an articulate young man with an eye for the finer things in life. He is a practiced painter since he began his journey at the age of 10, and his personality is reflected in his paintings. Ryan is dedicated to his work and Pokemon, and pays great attention to both. In fact, almost his entire life is consumed by training, painting, writing, and Pokemon. His personality with people, however, is much different than his caring side shown to Pokemon. He is deliciously dark, and loves sarcasm. Often detached and rude, Ryan is often stereotyped as an emo or goth. This mysterious, dark side of him often attracts the ladies, when combined with his artistic abilities. The young charmer, however, does not go much for new girls, since he has eyes only for one. Even then, his team takes precedence over this girl. Below the team is his close friends and family, which also contains the object of his affection, whom he protects for obvious reasons. Below them are his education, art, and writing. And finally, below that, is any sort of desire to be popular or fit in.

History: Ryan was born to a duo of breeders, and lived in the countryside. They owned a large ranch, which is where Ryan developed his love of Pokemon and skill with handling them. The loneliness of only himself, his parents, and a younger sister, however bad it may have been at the time, also allowed him to develop his painting skills. Since he was homeschooled on the ranch and only had one friend on the ranch across the road from him, which allowed for plenty of free time. This friend of his was Jess, a girl the exact same age as him, with a fiery personality and daredevil traits that drew in Ryan. From a young age, he had always had a secret crush for her, and the two were inseparable. This extended to his journey, which he began at the age of 10, as was traditional to the world. The two young people traveled together across the wilds of Johto, together with each other and their Pokemon. The first Pokemon Ryan got was a product of his parents’ breeding ranch, when he received his personal favorite of all the Pokemon, a young Absol. The Absol had been left on the doorstep of the O’ Donnell family when it was just a babe, and since then, has accompanied Ryan through everything. With the Pokemon, there was a note, naming the Pokemon Astarael. Since then, Ryan has risen to the top of the ranks of trainers with his team, led by Astarael, has qualified for the tournament, become a successful painter, and kissed Jess.

Pokemon

Name: Astarael

Species: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfa/dpmfa359.png


Age: 26

Personality: Astarael, often called Rae, is a very dark Pokemon. She broods quite often and is generally sulky, although she revels in battle, where she can destroy her opponents. Given the name Astarael by her previous owner, it fits quite well, considering it is a Goddess of Sorrow in an ancient religion. When she is sorrowful or angry, her skills grow tenfold and she becomes an ace of Ryan’s team.

History: Astarael’s known history begins 6 and 3 quarters years ago, when she was left on the doorstep of the O’ Donnell family. From that point, she became the constant companion of Ryan, the family’s first child. Whether it be at home, on his journey, or in battle, Astarael is always at Ryan’s side. It is clear her parents were powerful Pokemon, due to the natural battling abilities and athletic skills exhibited by her.

TMs: Blizzard, Protect, Dark Pulse, Shadow Ball, Fire Blast
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Name: Nyte

Species: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfa/dpmfa198.png


Age: 24

Personality: Nyte resembles a sarcastic fighter pilot, with strong confidence in his skills. Despite his role as a joker, Nyte will not hesitate to defend what he holds dear with his life. His sarcasm often gets him in trouble that he has to fight his way out of, giving him extra experience for the battles into which Ryan thrusts him. Only his battling skills saved him.

History: Nyte was encountered by Roland in the thick woods of Ilex Forest. A Fearow had decided to attack him for food, but got a surprise when Nyte posed a challenge. He showed speed and strength that made him quite a prize to Ryan. After being defeated by Astarael, the two bonded quickly, and work well in a tandem. Since then, Nyte has great bonds with the entire team and has devoted his skills to Ryan's career as a trainer.

TMs: Protect, Psychic, Shadow Ball, Aerial Ace, Steel Wing
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Name: Redd

Species: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfsb/dpmfsb274.png


Age: 19

Personality: Redd adheres to his strict personal training regiment that he made for himself in order to keep in shape when he's not battling. Most of his time is consumed by practicing his martial arts and exercises, and everything else is sparring and battling. The epitome of a soldier, Redd is a no-nonsense tough SOB. The only time he shows weakness is when he is unable to fight back against his opponent, leading him to say he would kill himself when he reached old age. Psycho.

History: Redd was obtained when Ryan traveled to Hoenn for a tournament that would catapult him into the elite section of trainers. During the preliminaries of the tournament, Astarael was injured and unable to fight, leaving Ryan with a hole in his team. Redd was the plug for this hole, and was captured Ryan using Nyte. The shiny Nuzleaf had put up an amazing battle, but in the end, it was Nyte who prevailed. Since then, Redd has grown in personality and phyiscal abilities. He shares a close bond with Nyte, but not nearly as much with Astarael, whom he respects, but does not have a friendship with.
TMs: Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Giga Drain, Brick Break,Energy Ball


~~~

Name: Raziel

Species: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfa/dpmfa302.png

Age: 20

Gender: Male

Personality: Raziel is a creature of the dark, and acts as such. Despite his capture by Ryan, he shows no adherence to the boundaries of trainer-Pokemon relationships and does as he pleases. He speaks to no one, but will fight when called upon. The only other Pokemon who he has ever shown signs of respect for is Astarael, for she is not frightened by his abilities or threats. He sometimes speaks of one named Revan, who is apparently a leader of sorts, and his life revolves around thinking about Revan

History: Raziel was discovered deep in the twists of a mighty mountain pass, through which Ryan traversed. The golblinoid badgered the group for the whole time, until finally being hunted down and defeated by Astarael. He screamed defiance in the name of Revan, but was still defeated and captured, resenting his capturer ever since



Ace Strife's Characters

Nickname:Ace

Name: Ace Strife

Gender: Male

Age: 15


Appearance: Ace is about 5'7" and weighs about 120 pounds. His long, black hair goes down to the top of his shoulders and is curly. He covers his green eyes with black-tinted sunglasses. He wears a black shirt with no sleeves and on his left arm, he has a large tattoo of a Gyarados. He wears black pants that go down to his ankles, and on the right leg in front, there is a nig white streak going down. He wears sneakers that almost don't fit him anymore. He also has a scar on the right-side of his face, right above the eye.

Personality: Ace never has one distinct personality. Most of the time however, he is extremely focused on what he is doing, and he doesn't get distracted easily. This tends to hurt him as he misses important information at certain times when his mind wonders off. He isn't really friendly, and he has made many enemies in his life. He also doesn't like to trust people, I'll explain that in the history. This usally hurts him alot during adventures.

History: Ace was born in Goldenrod City to a normal, middle-class mom and dad who lived right on the outskirts of the main city. He was brought up away from alot of human contact and the only time he saw other people was when his parents held a party at their house. Even then, he usally was sent to his room and stayed there for the entire night. One night, his family was holding a party and he was in his room. He was 13 at this time. A Mankey climbed up the tree outside his window and clanged on his window pane. Ace opened it and the Mankey hopped inside. It was holding it's side. Ace knew it must've been hurt, so he took out a bandage and a Potion and healed Mankey's wound. The Mankey was so grateful, that he stayed with Ace. Now, that Mankey is a Primeape and is Ace's only pokemon.

Pokemon:

Name: Primeape
Age: 4
Gender: Male
Personality: Primeape acts like other Primeapes. He is very wild and hates to get hit.

History: Primeape started as a Mankey that loved eatting bananas. One night, he was eatting bananas, when he threw a peel on the branch below him. When he jumped down to get more bananas, he slipped on the peel and fell into a thorny bush. Dozens of thorns were stuck on his side, and he needed help. He saw a house next to him, so he slowly climbed up and clanged on the window. He was healed and became Ace's only pokemon. They have traveled everywhere together and all the battling has made Primeape very tough to beat.

Neptune's Characters:

Name: Andromeda Tellerson
Gender: female
Age: 19

Appearance: Andromeda is 5’6”—of average height, and of average build. She has dark brown hair that falls at shoulder length, and it always looks a bit messy. Her eyes are light green. Her outfits vary, but are always simple: she wears jeans or denim shorts, depending on the weather, and a simple sweater or t-shirt. Usually these are in darker colors; Andromeda favors blues and greens. She has two pairs of sneakers, both of which are identical (black sneakers with white rubber soles and no shoelaces), except one pair is more worn then the other. She wears no makeup and no jewelry. She has a burn scar on her arm.

Personality: Andromeda is quiet, but not shy; she only speaks when she feels it is necessary, letting her actions represent her. She holds grudges, never forgetting them. She often comes across as cold, as she has never been one to suck up, and she won’t pretend to like someone she doesn’t like. She believes actions are more important than words, and thus refuses to take people on their word unless they have proven they can be trusted. If someone can prove that they are trustworthy, she is loyal to a fault—it takes a lot to break her trust, but it also takes a lot to earn it. If someone does manage to later lose her trust, she will never forgive them, and will often seek revenge.

She is not unnecessarily cruel, but she won’t go out of her way to help anyone, either. She can be off-putting, as she spends much of her time speaking with Faye, her Ninetales, or her other Pokemon. She trusts them above anyone else; even if someone has earned her trust, if her Pokemon don’t like them, she will distance herself. If Faye doesn’t think someone is worthwhile, then her opinion trumps that of anyone else. She will defend her Pokemon herself if necessary, even to the death; they mean the world to her.

Andromeda is interested in the paranormal: ghost-type and psychic-type Pokemon fascinate her. She is interested in how these Pokemon work; if all Pokemon become ghost-types after death, for example, and how non-psychic-types can learn psychic-type moves. She shares this interest with Faye; one of them got the other interested in it, but neither can remember who.

History: Andromeda is the youngest of a large family: as well as her mother and father, she had seven brothers and sisters (three brothers, four sisters). The gap between Andromeda and the next oldest, Flora, is ten years, and as such, Andromeda has always been treated as a baby. Her family, Johto natives going back several generations, owns a Pokemon grooming shop, and most of the family works there. The Pokemon Andromeda encountered as a child were the most pampered; she was not aware of trainers until she was six.

When she was six, she was given her first Pokemon: a Vulpix she named Faye. They were quickly inseperable, and began exploring Goldenrod City’s every nook and cranny. Away from the grooming parlor, she saw the trainers passing through Goldenrod, and would often watch the gym matches with Faye. She became interested in becoming a trainer as a result. By the age of ten, she already knew all of Goldenrod City and most of the surrounding area.

She became a trainer at ten, although her family didn’t entirely approve, and she struck out on her own. She enjoyed the time alone, and assembled her team on her journey. Faye, who had always been a strong influence on Andromeda, affected her even more, and the Pokemon’s pragmatic nature rubbed off on her. She had a few run-ins with Team Rocket, and even had her arm broken by one of them, and this only made her more untrusting. She knows some basic defensive skills, but nothing spectacular.

Andromeda has traveled to both Kanto and Hoenn, and has collected Pokemon from both regions, as well as from Johto. She would like to travel to Fiore and Sinnoh someday. When she was in Kanto, she visited Pokemon Tower. It was there that she encountered her first ghost-type Pokemon, and captured a Haunter she named Xen. Xen is the most mysterious of her Pokemon; while gregarious, he is careful not to talk of himself or his past. He enjoys a good battle, and is the one who convinced Andromeda to attend the tournament.

Pokemon:
Name: Faye
Species: Ninetales
Age: 19
Gender: female
Appearance: Faye only has eight tails; other than that, she looks like any other Ninetales.

Personality: Faye is pragmatic and a bit selfish. She believes in taking care of herself before others; she is very protective of Andromeda, however. She believes people and Pokemon have to earn their worth; she abhors those who cling to others and cannot survive on their own. She puts up a good fight in battle, and has the most experience out of Andromeda’s team. She views battling as a way to prove her worth to Andromeda, and keeps track of her win/lose record. She would rather leave Andromeda than be a burden to her.

Faye knows that Andromeda trusts her, and feels it is her duty to make use of that trust by protecting Andromeda. She is the one whose trust one must earn before they can interact with Andromeda for any reason except necessity. Faye knows more about Andromeda than any of her other Pokemon, but feels that this is yet another bond of trust between them, and would never disclose Andromeda’s secrets.

History: Faye was born a pet store Pokemon, and ridiculed by trained Pokemon for being weak and useless. She was further mocked by her fellow Vulpix for having five tails. She resolved to become strong, and when she was selected by Andromeda, she was glad to fight for her. She has always been on Andromeda’s team, and this is something she considers an honor, something she works to maintain.

Soon after beginning her journey with Andromeda, they were attacked by Team Rocket. Faye was still a Vulpix at the time, and was beaten by a Wartortle. When Andromeda moved to protect Faye from Team Rocket, they broke her arm and burned her arm with a Charmeleon. Faye killed the Rocket member; burning them to death. Andromeda managed to cover it up, and thus both feel they owe a debt to the other. She is the same age as Andromeda.

Name: Xen
Species: Haunter
Age: unknown
Gender: male
Appearance: Nothing unusual.

Personality: Xen is gregarious, striking up a conversation with everyone and anyone. He doesn’t fit the “scary ghost” profile at all, and in fact doesn’t like it when people are afraid of him. He’s playful; he’s quite the juggler, although nobody knows where he picked that skill up. He can also get out of his Pokeball whenever he wants, although he usually stays inside when Andromeda wants him to.

Xen loves to battle, although his style is rather quirky. He loves to taunt his opponents, and, if not given other orders by Andromeda, likes to phase in and out of view, sometimes even moving through the other Pokemon. Even his movements are strange: he won’t just move toward his opponent, he will spiral toward them, or approach upside-down, or circle around them. It does throw opponents off, but it also often annoys the other Pokemon, making them want even more badly to take him out.

History: Nobody knows how old Xen is; even he hasn’t bothered keeping track. He can’t remember from before he was a Gastly, anyway, if there was anything before he was a Gastly. He resided in Pokemon Tower his entire life (or death) before he was captured, and he only ever ventured out of it to fly about its walls, circling them high above Lavender Town and shrieking with a few of his friends. He only did this when he was young, however; when he learned how frightened people were of this, he stopped.

He battled many trainers while in the Tower, and while he always either won or slipped away before being captured, it was here where he gained his appetite for a good fight. He was captured once, years before Andromeda was born, by a trainer named Luke, and it was while battling for him that he evolved into Haunter. Haunter was released when Luke died—rather, he left his Pokeball on his own, not wanting to be placed up for adoption or sent to a pet store.

Haunter returned to Pokemon Tower, and was not interested in having another trainer; he had cared very much for Luke, and his death reminded Xen that, if he were to be captured again, he would go through the same thing once more. He has not told Andromeda all of this story, although she does know that he had a previous trainer.

When Andromeda entered Pokemon Tower, Xen followed her up, as he did all the trainers, and saw Faye, still a Vulpix, battling the other ghosts and winning without much challenge. He had not battled for a long time, trying to avoid capture, but Faye was an irresistible challenge, and he took the chance. Andromeda captured him. He contemplated running off, but her attitude won him over: she seemed respectful of her Pokemon, and she had captured him honorably. So he stayed with her.

Xen has always been the one to convince Andromeda to enter tournaments, and even tried his hand at some contests when they visited Hoenn. He managed to convince Andromeda to enter this contest as well, and is quite excited about it. He claims not to know about Caliope; he does, but knows of it as Althanea. Still, he has never gone there, only knowing of the name.

Name: Hyperion
Species: Ampharos
Age: 25
Gender: male
Appearance: He has four thin black stripes around his neck, and the gems on his head and tail are more orange than red.

Personality: Hyperion is shy; he is smart, but often trips over his words when he’s nervous. He isn’t terribly fond of battling, although he will battle when Andromeda asks him to. He’s a bit skittish, prone to shooting off sparks when startled, and apologizes too much. He and Faye don’t get along very well because she thinks of him as a liability. He’s afraid of her, but not of Xen, who has gone to great lengths to prove he’s not scary.

Hyperion needs encouragement in battle, and is best at double battles with Ankh. He gets attached to those he trusts and tries his best to help them however he can. He also likes to help even those he doesn’t know, and believes people really are good at heart. He’s terrified of snake Pokemon.

History: Hyperion spent most of his time with a flock of Mareep; he was caught by Andromeda as one. His herd was terrorized by an Arbok at the time—the snake Pokemon took many Mareep for food. Hyperion developed his snake phobia at this time, as his entire herd was always watching for the Arbok. While he was one of the oldest in the flock, he disliked fighting, and so most of those his age had evolved into Flaaffy while he remained a Mareep. Still, he was fairly well-respected in his flock for his helpful nature.

Hyperion was the second Pokemon Andromeda captured, and she used Ankh, a Chikorita at the time, to capture him. As he was inexperienced, he was easily beaten and captured. He was very nervous at first, proving unstable in battle—electrocuting things at any moment. However, when paired with Ankh in double battles, he shined, and eventually he and Ankh grew very close. Hyperion loves to spend time with her.

His evolution into Flaaffy was a fairly quick one, due to his age, but the transition from Flaaffy into Ampharos was very slow. His dislike of battles meant that Andromeda rarely used him. When Ankh evolved into Meganium, however, he decided he would become an Ampharos, and battled for her. He’s very devoted to her.

Name: Ankh
Species: Meganium
Age: 22
Gender: female
Appearance: Nothing unusual.

Personality: Ankh is louder than she has to be most of the time—she prefers to shout, especially in battle. She can be quiet, but doesn’t like to. She gives Faye some serious competition for the best fighter category; Ankh is a clever strategist. She’s very passionate, however, and this may subvert her skill, as the quickest way to make her leap before she looks is to insult her or those she cares about.

Ankh feels everything very strongly. She’s the first to laugh and the first to cry, and is the most empathetic of Andromeda’s team. She likes to make everyone else happy, and puts their needs before her own. She works well in double battles, especially with Hyperion, because she can give him the encouragement he needs to battle well.

Ankh is also the most trusting of the group. Left to her own devices, she would try to befriend even the meanest human, even if they had a team full of fully evolved fire-types. She wants to believe that people are good, and even when shown that someone has bad intentions, she will continue to make excuses for them. Faye and Andromeda keep her out of trouble.

History: Ankh has lived a fairly carefree life, spending her wild life as a Chikorita in a meadow where life was easy for her. She would often challenge other Chikorita to friendly challenges, and was best known for trying to befriend a group of rather ornery Spearow who lived nearby. She was attacked by them twice, but she always managed to get away, only to come back and try again.

She was Andromeda’s first capture—while Chikorita was no pushover, she didn’t really stand a chance against the fire-type. She adapted to life with Andromeda well, however, and Faye grew to respect her skill in fighting, although she often admonished Ankh’s trusting nature. She was the only other Pokemon Andromeda had with her when she was attacked by the Rocket member, and it was she who defended Andromeda from the Wartortle and Charmeleon while Faye dealt with the Rocket. While she didn’t approve of Faye’s methods, she was more worried about Andromeda at the time. She, Faye, and Andromeda have never spoken of this incident to anyone.

When Andromeda captured Hyperion, Ankh was drawn immediately to him; he seemed very nervous, and she wanted to help him gain confidence. Through double battling with him, she saw a different side of him, and she spent more and more time with him. She’s head over heels in love with him. They work very well together, and are almost always Andromeda’s choice for a double battle team (although Faye and Xen work well together as well).

Name: Evi
Species: Espeon
Age: 17
Gender: female
Appearance: Nothing unusual.

Personality: Evi is manipulative; she especially enjoys toying with the emotions of males. She doesn’t think anything good comes out of relationships like that, and comes across as cold because that’s how she wants to be thought of as, except when she’s trying to get something she wants. Her personality does a complete 180 when she needs something out of someone else.

When she’s trying to manipulate someone, she becomes as sweet as honey, practically bending over backwards to do what she thinks pleases them. Once she has what she wants, however, she throws them away. It takes a lot to earn real respect from her, and she can never respect someone who she can manipulate. Evi respects Faye and Andromeda, but thinks Hyperion and Ankh are weak, mostly because of their emotional attachments. She views the trainer-Pokemon relationship as one of mutual respect, not love. Any Pokemon who falls in love with her she scorns above all others, although they may not know this. She will use them until either they grow tired of her cat and mouse games or she grows tired of them.

Evi’s lack of emotional connections allows her to make all of her decisions with a clear mind, but as she has no experience in dealing with said connections, if she ever did form one that she couldn’t explain away, it would addle her greatly. She really does have a bond with Andromeda, but she explains it away as deep respect.

History: Evi was formerly a Rocket-owned Pokemon, trained by a girl who specialized in Eevee evolutions until she proved to be nearly impossible to evolve into the Espeon the girl needed, as that requires a connection with the trainer that Evi could not form. As a result, she was abandoned and put up for sale in the Game Corner in Celadon City. While many people examined her, as she was the best trained Eevee in the Game Corner, her disposition scared most off. She was put up for sale at a discounted price, but it wasn’t until Andromeda came that anyone showed any real interest in her, as she had gained a reputation in Celadon City after she bit a child who was prodding her too much.

Andromeda saw her and decided she wanted her, and so spent most of her money on the coins needed to buy her. Evi was very cold toward Andromeda and her Pokemon in the beginning, but Andromeda’s refusal to give up on her as she expected eventually won the Eevee over, and eventually she evolved into Espeon during a battle with one. Except for Faye, whom she sees as a Pokemon who has a similar view of life, she does not like the other Pokemon on Andromeda’s team, although she is willing to tolerate them. She does enjoy fighting, and especially prides herself on completely wiping her opponents out. She prides herself in her control. Tournaments amuse her, and she is a bit of a show off, especially because it means more people will be willing to give her things she wants out of admiration.

Name: Dreness
Species: Swablu
Age: 8
Gender: female
Appearance: Nothing unusual.

Personality: Dreness is very young, so she comes off as naïve because she is. She is a cheerfull little bird, and enjoys watching battles more than fighting in them. She is impressionable, being so young, and she often mimics the other Pokemon on the team, or Andromeda. She is very perceptive, even at such a young age. Being raised by such a group means her adult personality should certainly be… Interesting.

Currently, Faye is trying to instill in her a healthy skepticism, Xen is teaching her to bounce balls on her head, Hyperion is instructing her on kindness to others, Ankh is giving her battling tips, and Evi is—well, Evi is ignoring her. But Dreness is learning control from her anyway, from watching her fight.

History: Dreness does not yet have much history, being so young. Andromeda captured her when she visited Hoenn. Dreness bonded immediately with her new trainer, and believes she is infallible. She does not battle often; mostly she fights in friendly matches with more inexperienced trainers.

Dreness has noticed the burn scar on Andromeda’s arm, and often prods at it. While she is curious about it, she has not asked anyone yet. She often collects berries for Andromeda, as she is the best at finding them, and can fly up high to get any in trees. She helped Xen convince Andromeda to participate in the tournament, as she wanted to watch.

Stored:
Name: Triton
Species: Lapras
Age: 30
Gender: male
Appearance: Nothing unusual.

Personality: Triton is very gentle, as most Lapras are, and hates battling. He likes to spend time on the open ocean, and is very helpful when Andromeda wants to travel overseas. He’s very relaxed—a little too relaxed; he’s often completely oblivious to his surroundings. He gets along well with the other Pokemon, but is not often in the team due to his dislike of battle.

History: Lapras spent a lot of time wandering. He would travel the ocean from place to place, rarely coming near land unless he needed to. He has been to every region at least once, although he has only seen them from the oceans. Johto was his favorite region; he liked the caves and whirlpools. When he came near the mainland, Andromeda captured him.

He is fond of his trainer, and tells her stories about his travels while she’s riding on his back. He has amassed knowledge of many legends over the years, and loves to talk about them. He knows legends from every region, mostly told to him by other Pokemon, but some he has overheard from humans. He has heard of Caliope, and told Andromeda of it, but he doesn’t know much.

DE's Characters

(Character information)
Name: Erik Kurokawa

Gender: Male

Age: 18

Appearance: At about mid height, he's 5'11". Skinny for the most part, he's slightly muscled, most of that muscle gained from life as a trainer. Still, he's not very strong, and wouldn't be much use in a fight, although he does know the basics of how to use a sword. (Not two, though.) He's quick, but only in short bursts.

His hair, a sandy blonde color, is short and spiky. His eyes are a light blue, with flecks of silver and gray here and there. He's somewhat pale, but his arms are a little tan from being outside quite a bit. He tends to wear darker colors, like black and maroon, and will be wearing a dark green T-shirt with a black jacket, dark jeans, and a gray wristband on his left hand.

Personality: Erik is a careful person, for lack of a better term. While not paranoid, he worries about angering people, especially when he first talks to them. Only on rare occassions will he begin a conversation. When he does speak, he often is reserved, carefully picking the words he says to as not to offend. He's somewhat more open with people that he actually knows, but there are few that he is actually comfortable talking to.

He's not shy in a battle, though. He'll usually begin with a basic strategy, and change or add on to it as the match continues. One of his best qualities are that he's able to quickly assess a situation and determine the best course of action. His main problem is that he doesn't voice what he thinks, afraid of angering someone else.

For such a quiet person, it's hard to fathom that Erik could have any kind of temper to speak of, but if you set him off, it isn't pretty. Anger is the only thing that makes him outgoing at all, and he's been known to pick fights when in a rage. Injustice and oppression is generally what does it, which makes the fact that he knows very little about Caliope all the better. If he did, he might very well have gotten himself in over his head.

History: Erik's parents met in Ecruteak, where his father, Taiki, stayed while building ships in Olivine. Chiaki, his mother, worked at a swordfighting dojo along with her father. The two met when Taiki joined the dojo, and they gradually fell in love. But, about a year after Taiki had joined, he was given a job offer in Slateport that would give him more money, enough to provide for a family. When he left, Chiaki went with them.

The two had a total of three children, Erik being the middle child. Chiaki taught them all the basics of swordfighting, for there was no dojo in Slateport and she remained a stay at home mom. However, all three children has aspirations of becoming a trainer. Daiki, the oldest, set out as soon as he turned ten, but returned two years later with the decision of furthering his education and becoming a Pokemon doctor. Erik and his younger sister, Rin, both set out at the same time, when Erik was thirteen and Rin ten. Of the three, Erik was the most cautious, choosing to wait rather than set off immediately. When they began, Daisuke gave them their starting Pokemon. Erik received a Cyndaquil, and Rin a Snorunt.

Eventually, Rin decided the life of a trainer was not for her, either. Instead, she took an interest in Pokemon breeding, eventually establishing a Daycare Center in Kanto near Celadon. Erik was to be the only of the three to become an established Pokemon Trainer.

By the time Erik enters the tournament, he has collected a total of twelve badges, eight from Hoenn and an additional four from Johto, and two Contest ribbons.

Pokemon:

Luke the Jolteon
Age: 16
Gender: Male
Appearance: Other than a regular Jolteon, he has a small tear in his right ear. Also, his eyes are brown.
Personality: Luke is fiercely protective of Erik and his sister, Brianna, but he's really kind of a father figure for the team. He's very no-nonsense, with very little in the way of a sense of humor, but he's also helpful in certain situations. He is probably the closest one to Erik on the team.
History: Luke, as well as Brianna, were found by Erik on Route 119 in Hoenn. There, they had been dumped by a Team Rocket members after stealing them from their parents, but couldn't handle the strong wild Pokemon in the area and fled. When Erik rescued them, both were weak and badly injured, but they both healed well. Luke's torn ear is a reminder of that time. Erik evolved Luke with a Thunderstone from New Mauville before his battle with Juan, the Gym Leader of Sootopolis.

Brianna the Espeon
Age: 16
Gender: Female
Appearance: She looks like a standard Espeon for the most part, except for the fact that her eyes and the jewel on her forhead are sky blue.
Personality: Brianna is rather meek and quiet, and doesn't speak very much. It's obvious the events of the past haunt her to some extent, but she's mostly managed to overcome them. She loves her brother dearly, and feels utterly lost without him. If they are seperate for much longer than a day, she becomes depressed and lonesome. She is, however, sleek and graceful, making her better in Contests than battling. Overall, the main reason that she's only one two Contests is because Erik isn't a very good coordinator.
History: Brianna, and Luke, were found by Erik on Route 119 in Hoenn. There, they had been dumped by a Team Rocket members after stealing them from their parents, but couldn't handle the strong wild Pokemon in the area and fled. When Erik rescued them, both were weak and badly injured, but they both healed well. Brianna has participated in five contests, but has only won two, most of which is Erik's fault. She evolved during her second contest in Lilycove, the first of the two that she did win.

Hiei the Typhlosion
Age: 28
Gender: Male
Appearance: Basically, your average Typhlosion, except that his flames are a little more subdued.
Personality: Hiei is very laid back, not something you see in most male Typhlosions. However, this doesn't mean he isn't a very good battler. Taking the spot as the powerhouse of Erik's team, he's extremely difficult to take down, for all his lax nature.
History: Originally caught by Daisuke, Erik's older brother, near Mt. Chimney, he gave him to Erik as his beginning Pokemon because of how easy he was to control and train. Hiei has been with Erik through his entire journey as a Trainer, and is responsible for many of his pivotal wins.

Draco the Flygon
Age: 15
Gender: Male
Appearance: Draco is very strangely colored. As a Trapinch, he was completely black. Now, as a Flygon, he is varying shades of gray, with the darkest of his markings being black.
Personality: Draco is very difficult to control. When Erik originally caught him, he wouldn't listen at all, and he only recently became fully evolved. He enjoys biting anyone that gets too close, and he will only let Erik ride on his back. Even what trust he shows in Erik is very slim.
History: Draco was a pistol, so tospeak, from the very beginning. Even once Erik had caught him in the Desert, he had more of a tendancy to bite him than fight in a battle. Training was a long and arduous process, but gradually the rogue Dragon type came to respect Erik.

Misuzu the Azumarill
Age: 20
Gender: Female
Apparance: A regular Azumarill.
Personality: Very cuddly and friendly, Misuzu takes little joy in battling. She'd much prefer to make friends with every Pokemon she meets. However, if you cross her, her temper is worse than Erik's...
History: Erik caught her as a Marill near Verdanturf. She's been fairly well a staple on his team since, considering he doesn't have many water types. She was already fairly old when he caught her.

Reeah the Arbok
Age: 25
Gender: Female
Appearance: A regular Arbok.
Personality: Reeah is disdainful of most everyone, and overall likes few people. Like Draco, she's really more trouble than she's worth, but Erik keeps her on his team because she's a good battler. She absolutely hates Misuzu because of her happy disposition.
History: Reeah is one of the newer additions to Erik's team. He caught her near Violet City while journeying through Johto. Although she seems to hate most Pokemon and humans, she somehow seems to like him, seeing as she let him catch her.

Heya Firefly! I posted my first post. I know it's short, but it's a clean little introduction. I don't know if you allow requests, but for the first battle, could I please battle someone with a Hariyama or Machamp, and on the same team, a Fearow? Thanks in advance.

That also brings up the question of battles. Is it set up URPG style, or is it anime style battling? If it's anime, then I'd like to ref for it, just to help you out.

I'm hoping for drawn-out battling like in URPG stories. XD Not sure which of Andromeda's Pokemon are going to take the stage, though, except that Xen probably will. It's between Faye and Evi for the second spot, though. XD

Anime style. ^_^ And I'd welcome a ref for the first round of tournament battles, so thank you. =) I'll be reffing most of the Caliope battles myself, however, as I've got plans for our motley little bunch.

As to requests... No.
The point is to see how everyone responds to challenges, and strategizing against the unexpected. If I let you battle who you want, it doesn't show how well you think on your feet. ^_^ Or give you a chance to show me how your character handles what is thrown at them.


@ Andromeda- The battles will be drawn out against the Caliopeans, and in later rounds of the tournaments. The best battlers will, of course, be those who win and move on to the later stages, though in the end that will turn out not to matter much. ;) However, the first round won't be /that/ drawn out unless I want to test someone more, or think they have a lot of potential, merely because, well, there's gonna be a LOT of chances later on, once people are more used to the RP, to prove what they can do.

Some battles, though, will be quick. In Caliope, there may be instances were they are in danger, and MUST find a way to escape, or defeat a few people very fast and leave before backup can arrive. So not all battles will be long. Strategy and original thinking, however, should be a part of even the short ones.

03-24-2007, 07:19 PM
If I get a big Pokemon, then i'm going with Redd. I like to have my faster Pokemon dismantle the larger ones, kind of like a ninja. Otherwise, it's going to be Rae. I'd like to see Rae working with Faye. They would make a good team.

EDIT: okay then. I'll guess I'll probably go with Rae then. Or maybe Nyte. Maybe Redd. xD Guess I don't know. BTW, if you don't mind, I'd like to add a Pokemon to my team. I'll have the sign-up for her soon.

FireflyK
03-24-2007, 07:25 PM
Sure. ^_^ People may, of course, add if they want. After all, you're allowed up to 6 Pokemon, + 2 reserve ones. Later, you'll be able to catch another 2 reserve Pokemon, as well. And a few lucky folk, if they can figure one of a few plots out, may get a helpful guide or other 'bonus'. ;)

No need to announce what you'll use ahead of time, either. ^_^ The refs will choose something to test whatever you send out- Yes, you'll be sending first- and to see how you deal with it. So just use a Pokemon you feel you can battle well with.

(This doesn't neccesarily mean they'll use something with an advantage over you... Just something that can be fought with fairly evenly, so you really get a chance to show what you can do. Also, as a reminder for everyone, don't godmode or powerplay. You can try to dodge, or try to hit with an attack, but the ref will decide what hits and doesn't, and respond as such in their post!)

Neptune
03-24-2007, 07:27 PM
I really want to get to the battle. XD *is excited* I really think I want to use Evi, just because she enjoys blasting people away, but Faye would be brilliant, too, and Xen was the one who requested to fight. But it is the first round...

Okay, I'm starting to treat my characters like real people. Is that a bad thing? XD

FireflyK
03-24-2007, 07:28 PM
Hehe, I do the same. ;)

Anyway, I'm glad to see everyone's excited. Go and post in the thread there, if you'd like. :P We can get started!

Neptune
03-24-2007, 07:30 PM

Of course. ;) The battles will be very close, but yes, you will win, and all be in on the later plot.

At some point, you'll battle another person. The losers WILL get a way to be involved with the Caliopean plot, however, even if they won't be in the rest of the Tournament rounds, so no worries there. Some may already be involved with Hotaru's plot, in fact, by the time the losses occur, depending on how a certain upcoming event is treated...

I can't wait to watch the other battles. Your Pokemon seem like they'd be interesting in battle.

LordZangoose
03-24-2007, 11:37 PM
Oh Raziel is very fun to see battle. If anyone has played Soul Reaver 2, then he's like the main character of the same name. Rae has quite the battle rage, Redd is a martial arts specialist, almost like a kung-fu assassin, and Nyte is just awesome, 'cause he's sarcastic while he battles. Xen and him would get along. BTW, if anyone's ever read the Five Ancestors Books, and has read Crane, then Redd is based off of the Siamese Assassin and Seh combined. Maybe a little of Tsung sprinkled in there.

03-24-2007, 11:55 PM
I think you might want to lengthen Appearance and Personality, but that's just my opinion. Other than that, I like it. Sennyu is kind of like Ankh in my opinion. (Neptune's poke)

Lonsie
03-24-2007, 11:59 PM
Yeah, they do look kind of droopey...

But I don't see how Sennyu and Ankh are anything a like.

Neptune
03-25-2007, 12:00 AM
I agree with lengthening personality, at least (I can't say much about appearance, since that's always the section I have issues with XD). Senyuu does seem to have the same caring streak Ankh has. =3 And Spear is kind of like Xen, at least in regards to sarcasm and love of battle.

LordZangoose
03-25-2007, 12:00 AM
Well, both are caring for members of their team, but fierce in battle. There's a fic I read with a similar Sneasel in it that I just can't remember. Not on this forum though.

Lonsie
03-25-2007, 12:05 AM
Yeah, I'm not really sure how I can leghthen it though, I'll try and think of stuff, but I promised I'd work on my homework after I was finished so I don't have any time right now.

Neptune
03-25-2007, 01:16 AM
When I'm trying to create a personality, I try to think of possible different situations. How the character acts in front of crowds, in front of people he/she knows, in battle, alone, etc. Also, I go through some likes/dislikes and try to see why he/she would feel that way.

EDIT: I really want to keep going with the RP soon. XD I haven't been this excited about a storyline in awhile. XD

FireflyK
03-25-2007, 02:39 AM
I'm glad everyone is excited.
Also, it's nice to see characters who, well, might have a chance of earning some of Hotaru's respect. ;) I have had trouble running this in the past when I got all optomists who were hopeless fighters and wanted to 'fix' her. Now, a few can be fun, but all of them?
...
I'm a realist.
A few of them got killed off.
The RPers, despite several warnings about how they couldn't convert people to their side by talking to them, were not amused. :oops: So I'm glad to see a bunch with, well, common sense!

It'll be interesting to see how they deal, though. No one will be killed off here without permission.. But yeah, injury is possible- though there will be warnings for anything that can't be healed with a few bandaids or a trip to the Pokecenter- and I'm gonna have fun seeing how they deal with things if Hotaru sets a few of them against someone who she thinks is a problem, or uses someone, or just totally abandons someone, maybe even as bait, to some of their enemies.
Or how they'll take some of their allies. o0; Dabesk is probably going to be well-liked, or at least tolerated with pity, but Sable is the sort of person most people will hate. xD And Hotaru is a liar when she has to be (While Bayleef just lies all the time to Outsiders), so if they DO find her out after being strung along, they won't be amused.

Then again, my 'group' character, being part of Team Rocket and all, isn't too well-liked, usually, either.

Neptune
03-25-2007, 02:42 AM
I like to give my characters an actual chance at surviving. XD And this RP seems like it needs a tough character. Enter Andromeda, and her Ninetales, who is willing to set people on fire. X3

Andromeda is capable of dealing with even liars, to a point, if she absolutely 100% must deal with them and knows she must deal with them. Evi... She would be all "LOL no." Faye would contemplate a good roasting of whoever dared cross her or Andromeda. I wonder what Hotaru would think of them. XD

Hehe... Not much at first, but she'd come to respect them. She's had it tough, though. Her Absol, basically her father figure, is dead. Her Arcanine, who's as protective as Bayleef but less paranoid/more able to work with people isn't with her at the moment. Without those two, all she has to counter Bayleef's bad/vicious influence- Beyond normal viciousness- is Dragonair, who's too calm and quiet to really interfere. x3

Meh. Hotaru's used to using people when she has to, anyway, or telling all sorts of lies. She'll put on a childish act and tell them she was abused if she has to to get their help... Which would be interesting once they meet Sable, who... Well, he's going to be very disliked, let's say.

But really, Hotaru only hated Team Caliope because she wasn't the one with the power in it. xD She was a hypocrite. She's started to hate them now, but she's still not really a good person. She's used to helping people because of Tomoe, but she's used people for more than just survival in the past. Technically, she's definitely maimed a few people she didn't have to, though it's unclear whether any of the killing she did could have been avoided, since she didn't really believe in doing so unless it was neccesary. This was more to avoid revenge than from conscience back then, though, so eh. :\

There's also the matter of her cheating, cheating in battles, not being afraid to intimidate other people if she can, probably wanting to really hurt/make an example of one of the trainers so the others will obey her, and various other things. x3 Though I'll make it one of my characters, unless someone volunteers their character/a pokemon of theirs for something exemplary they can think of.

Neptune
03-25-2007, 03:10 AM
I'm really interested to see what's going to happen. I think I chose a suitably tough character and some suitably tough Pokemon. X3 And well, as you can see, Andromeda's not above... Well... She wouldn't call it cheating. It's all just good strategy. X3

Yeah, let's get it finished up soon. ^_^
I'd suggest, however, that you try to choose moves carefully, rather than use a bunch at once. That lets the strategy be circumvented by a simple dodge or block... And then leaves your Pokemon distracted doing all the other moves while the foe builds up an attack.

;) One more should finish 'Slash off, however.

Andromeda's started to direct Ankh a bit more, so hopefully things will be less chaotic. She's mostly just Magical Leafing, now, though. It's hard to make things go fast and still keep Ankh in character, though. XD

03-25-2007, 02:31 PM
Nah, you have to wait for the ref, which would be FireflyK or myself, to make the post, and you'll find out from there. However, since it will automatically hit, you could use a combo with it, to get extra damage out of it. Hope this helped.

Well, it's not so much that it always hits but that it always hits where you send it. Like when Xen Shadow Punched the cactus to death. XD So if you were aiming right for the Pokemon, it would always hit.

FireflyK
03-25-2007, 02:49 PM
The Tournament has many rounds, but some will be assumed, not played out, for the sake of people not getting sick of it. ;)
The next round will be assumed to be down to a small number of people, since the player-killers will not show up. You'll fight another person here, in a 3v3. After that, however, there's going to be a few rounds cancelled... Due to the excuse the drop-out trainers made of being sick, they are going to decontaminate the stadium. What you do during that time will change whether the tournament will continue, and for how many rounds. ;)

Yes, you still wait for the ref to call it. It will definitely hit, but where/if it is critical, and what other effects it might have, should be called by the ref.

You can't use a combo to get extra damage. o0; The other attack could still miss. Unless you're planning something like using an attack to knock over a rock and then throwing that rock, or something like that, it's sometimes best to try to use only one or maybe two attacks per post, not more. What if you type out a string of commands, but your opponent goes out of reach, or uses something to counter the first one and retaliates, or something? Then your Pokemon is wasting time using attacks that will not hit, which can cause some problems. ;)

Hehe, and Neptune is right. It will always hit what you aim at. So if you're aiming at the wrong thing- Like a Double Team, for example- then it'll hit what you aimed it, which might not neccesarily be your opponent!

Those who have done exceptionally well in something will have it recorded, for future reference. There may be IC rewards for this. And if you get over a certain amount of reccomendations here, you'll be offered a reserved spot in any future roleplays I make, that may have a limited number of people.
Those who are not doing so well may have this marked down, too. I want this RP to be fun for everyone, so people who consistently ignore orders, etc, or godmode/powerplay/etc, will be warned. 3 black marks against you and you are out of this roleplay.

Interesting system of rewards/punishments. I like it. XD

FireflyK
03-25-2007, 04:19 PM
Thank you. =) Lol.
=P And for future reference, yes, the reward in character may be either making a discovery, being the one to get an interesting item... Or finding one of the 'special' wild Pokemon.

Hehe. ^_^ Yes, those are going to be quite fun. I'm designing some now.

For those who want some brownie points but didn't want to assist as refs, sending me suggestions for these 'mon can be a way to get some. If I choose to use what you create, as a wild or as a character/NPC, you'll get some sort of reward. ;)
Use any format you like. If you want a preset one, use this:

Species:
Name/nickname if any:
Age:
Gender:
Appearance:
Personality:
Any TMs? How'd they get them, if so(Optional of course):
Caliopean? (Remember, very few Caliopeans will be chosen):
Special abilities(Optional):
Special Knowledge(Optional):
Special Other(Optional):

(A speccial pokemon would be nice, but I don't really care.)

FireflyK
03-25-2007, 04:46 PM
Of course. ^_^ Anyone may ref a battle or two.
Since we have so many ref volunteers, you'll each get to ref one, and then I'll choose one or two people to ref the other battles.

EDIT: Thank you so much, Firefly, for putting Erik last. For that, I am eternally greatful.

FireflyK
03-26-2007, 12:48 AM
Lol, no problem. ;) The order isn't definite, though. Like I said, those who want to battle earlier may, and those who want to battle later may.

That's good. It may be tomorrow before I can post. It depends upon when my parents kick me off. Usually, I just skim, the posts so far have been so interesting, I can't help but read them. :oops:

FireflyK
03-26-2007, 12:56 AM
No problem. =D Take your time. I'd advise the same to other people... You never know what useful hints and such you might miss if you don't read the posts. ;)

Eh, sorry I haven't posted much, I've been really busy the last few days, hopefully my life will become less hectic in the next few days before I go on spring break (which I'll be staying here for).

FireflyK
03-27-2007, 02:51 AM
Yes, maybe more than one at once would be a good idea. ^^: Once this one ends, I'll ref one, and someone else can ref one, so we can have two going on at once.

Neptune
03-27-2007, 02:56 AM
I'll help ref any time. I actually quite enjoy it. XD Unless you think I'm too slow; I'm kind of worried I dragged this battle on too long. XD

EDIT: Are there going to be any double battles? Ankh acts different when Hyperion's battling with her, so that might be interesting. XD

Lonsie
03-27-2007, 07:31 PM
I want to either ref or be in one of the next battles please. :tongue:

As long as there will be some at some point, I'm happy. XD


In other news, I don't expect to be pulled away today, and next week is spring break! I have to go to school this week, then Monday and Tuesday, and then I am free!

Gah, I am so envious of you all, with your long Spring Breaks. Ours is four days, two of which are the weekend and we'd get off anyway. Usually, I'd go on to say how it evens out because we get off school in mid-May, but nooo, this year they had to be stupid and not let us off until almost June. Gah, I hate school sometimes.

Also, I will not be here those four days I have of Spring Break. I'm being shipped off to my Grandma's, where I have no internet access... ><

Anyway, I'm willing to actually do something. Reffing, battling, I honestly don't care. Just remember that I won't be on on weekends until... Well, probably May, honestly.

Lonsie
03-27-2007, 10:07 PM
Anyone mind if I battle next?

If not... Yay!

FireflyK
03-27-2007, 10:15 PM
I think two battles at once is managable, if Neptune doesn't mind reffing one. ^^; And yes, you may. I'll ref for you, just post in the RP thread.

Neptune
03-27-2007, 10:18 PM
I can ref one. ^^ I should be on until, oh, around midnight eastern US time. XD

I'll ref Aruseus, Neptune can ref whichever of DE/LW decides to battle. ;)

Like I said, I'll gladly ref two matches. I think they're fun. XD

LordZangoose
03-27-2007, 11:38 PM
I think it goes me, lonnsie, D_E, Factor, and then... whoever wants to go next. Some people never even posted. That's fine though. I like smaller groups better. I excell at that. Posted the beginning of my battle BTW. Or at least a challenge.

FireflyK
03-27-2007, 11:40 PM
LZ needs to get Pokemon approved before adding them, so there's time for someone else to battle while that gets worked out. Also, disrupting the stadium field to challenge a random person is not a wise idea... Generally people wait for it to be their turn to fight.

LordZangoose
03-27-2007, 11:43 PM
Aww... I just really wanted a vocano field. You have to admit that it would be pretty awesome. Besides, in my opinion, open challenges show balls. I'm gonna go do the sign-up as fast as I can.

If you wanted a field, you could have requested it... Later.
The entire point of these battles was to test you, not give you what you want. We went over this a few times already. My answer it still the same.

Open challenges when someone else is trying to use the field would, if this were real, probably get you hauled off by security.

If you want a battle like that you're welcome to /request/ something... But I've already had to explain this before when you decided what you wanted to fight, and had other questions about choosing your opponents/etc. The answer is still no.

LordZangoose
03-27-2007, 11:47 PM
Tell me what you want on the field, and I'll edit the post. Or I could just delete my post and the conversation the followed and then you could make a battle post for me. Sorry for the arrogance, but I was just overexcited about battling and wasn't really thinking about all of that. And maybe it was just me, but you came off as a little rude.

EDIT: Here's da sign-upizzle

Name: Gothmog
Species: Houndoom
Age: 24
Gender: Male

Appearance: Gothmog's horns curl farther back than most, and as a marking of being a leader of his old pack, there is a tattoo borne from fire and Nanab berries curling around his eyes in the shape of a crescent moon.

Personality: Gothmog is one of great darkness, and his outward actions show it. His anger flares almost constantly, his ego is massive, and his confidence never fails him. Acting like on of the dark lords of the days long before humans, Gothmog weilds his natural fighting abilities on his sleeve(so to speak). He flaunts his position as a king, viciously destroying anyone who gets in his way, and treating any Pokemon who does not battle well as a slave to him. This has gotten him into many fights, but then again, he almost never loses.

History: Born to the a leader of a great pack of Houndoom on the eastern Johtoian plains, Gothmog has always been of importance. He was raised as a warrior, and eventually mutinied against his father, showing ruthlessness and extreme military confidence. He surpressed revolts on the edge of his territory by a pack that had been conquered by his pack. As he spread his dominion of more and more packs, his ranks of warriors contained some of the most powerful Arcanine, Mightyena, and Houndoom ever to be seen. They laid seige to all of Eastern Johto, gaining dominion over all of the lands there. his reign was fierce and brutal, giving no mercy. However, his entire empire was brought to its knees by one teenage boy and his Absol. In a battle, Rae defeated Gothmog, and he was captured by Ryan. Even Raziel could not defeat this beast, and Redd could not walk for two weeks afterwards.

I'd try to be nicer if this wasn't the fourth time we had discussed this. =\ I don't mind answering a question two or three times, since people can be forgetful, or debating something if you want to change a rule... But after going over something 4 times, just deciding to ignore the answer you've been given if you dislike it is also kind of rude.

Get your new Pokemon set up first, then we'll work on setting up a battle field.

FireflyK
03-28-2007, 12:12 AM
What dark lords? If you want to mention something like that, you should explain it a bit. =P



Your Pokemon can not be the supreme leader of Eastern Johto, or ever have been the ruler of Johto. Sorry, but that's the most godmoding I've seen so far from anyone here. You can't just decide to take over a land.. And I'd have a hard time seeing a place with so many water types, among allll the other inhabitants, being taken over by a bunch of mostly Fire or part Fire types.

FireflyK
03-28-2007, 12:12 AM
Looks interesting. ^_^ Can't wait to see what your plan is. =P I must say, I've never seen a field like that before. Lol.

Dunno. o.0; Not me.

Anyway... Yes, he may have conquered another pack. ^_^ Packs would, of course, take each other over a lot in the wild, I'm assuming, especially as other packs aged and were deposed by the younger, more fit, Pokemon.

Um, sorry, but I'm gonna pull out on Gothmog. I changed my mind about her. I can always catch something dark in Caliope, since alot of the Pokemon there tend to be evil.

Neptune
03-29-2007, 08:23 PM
Heh, I like that logic. There must be evil in Caliope! XD I'm hoping to catch something cool, too--I can always store Dreness. XD

I just love Skarmory. I think they're awesome. XD

LordZangoose

Well, I'm going for a reckless attack, and then something that might surprise you...

FireflyK
03-29-2007, 09:14 PM
There will be plenty of cool things to catch in Caliope. ;) They won't, however, be what you expect, I assure you. I plan on using some 'popular' Pokemon... But also unusally-talented ones that are rarely seen in RPs/etc. And some who most would not 'waste their time' with at first, but who'll turn out to be good. Mwuahha. You'll never know which will turn out to be useful.

And keep in mind that not all will be well-meaning, either. Just because you /can/ catch something won't always mean you should. Also, some Pokemon will help with certain parts, but might not want to stick with you for the whole mission. ;) Caliopeans aren't easy to own.

Many will be more sneaky than fighters, too, since brute force will not be worth much in Caliope.

Neptune
03-29-2007, 09:17 PM
Firefly, I hope you don't mind that I decided to ref LZ's and Diesel's match. ^^ It was just that nobody was battling, so the RP was kind of stalling. XD

I like the underused Pokemon. Also the overused ones, like Skarmory. And Eeveelutions. And ones with interesting Pokedex data. XD

Hmm, brute force is bad? Sounds like I decided on a pretty good team, then. Well, except Ankh can be pretty brute force-y, but if Andromeda directs her, she can be sneaky. Kind of. Sort of. A little. XD

Neptune
03-29-2007, 09:46 PM
I know there are some people who have never posted in the RP. How long are we going to wait for them before we continue on? I don't want to be waiting forever on someone who doesn't want to be in the RP any more. XD

As for Diesel's battle, Tessa is an old woman with only two Pokemon: Jennie the Clefable, who was beaten by Phanpy, and Bonnie the Jumpluff, who finished Phanpy off and is now fighting... Pidgey? I think? XD Either Pidgey or Aron; I was reffing for Pidgey, though. Jumpluff has been hit once, by Pidgey's Wing Attack, and Pidgey is covered in cotton spores because some of them came off Jumpluff when he attacked her. Jumpluff used Poison Powder, and Pidgey's trying to Whirlwind it away. X3

And now for an off-topic question: when is that other RP you have the sign-up for going to start? The non-Pokemon one? I'd ask in the sign-up, but I'm the last to post on it and I don't want to double-post or delete-bump. XD

FireflyK
03-29-2007, 10:01 PM
(Not long. ^^; If everyone who IS active has battled, they'll be sent a PM warning. They get 2 days to respond. After that, if they don't, they're out, andw e go on without them. =P

The other RP will start when I can get a few more people. -sigh- I'm working on recruiting for that one as we speak.)

Also, I'm ready to battle whenever. Whoever wants to ref it can. If you don't catch me tonight, I'll be on again tomorrow afternoon. I just haven't wanted to do it yet because I was unsure of my rate of activity, but so long as I get done by Thursday, I should be on. One of you generally are on when I am, anyway. ^^

It's a good thing you got it fixed quickly. My old computer was out for six months for some reason (I think my mom sent it back to the manufacturer and they had to order some part or something). Did people PM you saying they're still in, or will we be moving on as soon as these two battles are finished?

I'm afraid I'm going to be gone until Monday or Tuesday. >< I'll continue my battle whenever I come back. Hopefully we'll get it finished next week.

Alright. ^^;

Anyway....
x_X My computer is not being reliable. PMing stalls sooo badly.
If someone could ask those who have not posted about battles yet, to see if they're still involved in the RP... I'd really appreciate it.
My computer might not be totally fixed, it seems, but I'll do what I can to stick around more often. Sorry.

Yay! =) Congrats to you.
=P As a big sister to a younger girl, let me just warn you.... :P Once she hits 9 or 10, be prepared to never ever get a chance in the bathroom again. Unless you hide/steal all her makeup.
Anyway... ^_^ All kidding aside, that's awesome.

Okay, kind of a random question, but I was looking up warrior cultures for something I'm writing, and I was wondering if you based Caliope on Sparta at all, Firefly? I was noticing quite a few similarities. XD

LordZangoose
04-08-2007, 02:15 PM
I don't think so, but there are similarities. See, Caliope adapts to change and thrives, while Sparta chose to never change.

FireflyK
04-08-2007, 03:35 PM
Hehe, nah... Didn't know anything about Sparta at the time, actually. :X I created Caliope about 9 years ago, and it was the first place I ever had an interest in writing about often. Though obviously it has changed since then as I grew up, lol. x3 Yay for 8 year olds with strange ideas!

Meh, I really just change the place a bit or a lot to fit whatever kind of roleplay I'm doing. Or, in this case, to kill some of the gore/etc and make it suitable for the pe2k boards. Lol. Sometimes, if everyone has a Caliopean character too, I even add things to put them above and beyond the 'Outsiders', but obviously in an RP where most people are gonna be from other places, the extra power and all needs to be toned down to them give a chance. ;)

In this case, I'm also assuming that while some Caliopeans are pretty malevolent, they aren't psychopathic, and so some can be changed. Thus why some people may be able to get Caliopean pokemon, and why Bayleef isn't a total lunatic.

Neptune

Well, it could be based on it, and I don't know if it's thriving, exactly. From what Firefly described, they're stuck to a very small gene pool, are all killing each other, and are generally untrusting of outsiders. The small genetic pool is dangerous; an epidemic that has no real cure could wipe them out. Of course, this probably won't come up at all in the RP. XD

Edit: Well, never mind, it wasn't based on Sparta. But it is similar in some ways. XD I'd like to see the uncensored Caliope; it might fit with uncensored Andromeda. She's a character I use often. Honestly I've gotten kind of used to using her in places with no ratings limit, so it's kind of weird to have her so... PG-13. XD Although right now she's more PG. XD

You came up with Caliope or whatever when you were eight. Wow.

FireflyK
04-08-2007, 04:06 PM
You came up with Caliope or whatever when you were eight. Wow.

Lol. I was always big on stories and writing. x3 I used to spend all my time as a kid making up stories or reading, and I refused to deal with other non-family people for the most part until about 1st grade. I was taught to read/write a bit before I went into Pre-K, actually... 'Cause I'd get upset if I made a story up with my parents and couldn't remember it to continue it later. Sooo, I've had LOTS of practice.

I always knew writing was what I wanted to do with my life, soyeah. ^_^ Hotaru and Hiro were my earliest characters, though Hotaru got a lot more dark over the years. And Hiro got less cliched. x3

:P Do you have IM, Neptune? ^_^ We could chat on there, I just don't wanna say anything bad on the forum and get pwned by mods for it, hehe. And I'd love to hear about the not-censored Andromeda.


Er... I wouldn't say thriving exactly... But as some places fall into ruins, others that were like that regain some wealth and... Well, not stability, but something that keeps them working. So they're not exactly stable, but they're likely to improve and be around for a while. TC kills each other off a lot, especially in the lower ranks- upper ranks are well guarded, though always paranoid- and people who live near or anger them are in some danger. But other areas, while somewhat grim/harsh, have better survival rates. People may WANT to fight to kill to avoid their enemy getting stronger and coming back to fight them again, but they can't always get away with that.

Yes, diseases are an issue. Aside from the eye-sight deficiency issues, with the night or day vision being odd for a lot of people, other diseases happen, too. Luckily the non-healthy people were often killed off, leaving Caliope relatively decent despite the limited gene pool... But recessive things weren't gotten rid of. Thus Tay-sachs, which is always fatal if you have both the recessive genes, is still somewhat common. Hotaru actually had a little brother who died of it at 2, though she never met him. And this is a pretty common story for other people as well, with this and a few other diseases. There are enough healthy people, however, and carriers who are not hurt by having only one of the recessive gene, for Caliope to maintain a good population.

I've got AIM--Achrystine. I'm online, but invisible right now. XD

Andromeda actually started out as a trainer with my name (Melanie). She's had lots of name changes, and her past involving Team Rocket has grown far worse until she became rather unsuited to this forum. XD

You never did accept/reject my TMs and new Pokemon, and I wanted to make sure they wree okay with you.

Tamaki the Tropius
Age: 28
Gender: Female
Appearance: A regular Tropius, all except that the banana-like fruit under her head is a bright green.
Personality: Tamaki is quiet, prefering to keep to herself rather than stay out or be around the other Pokemon. She dislikes fighting, a fact that Erik respects. He doesn't use her in battle all that often as a result. However, she's a brilliant flier, for all that she's bulky. If Erik flies anywhere, he usually does so on her, rather than moody Draco.
History: Erik had captured Tamaki near Route 119, just before finding Brianna and Luke. It is mostly thanks to her that the two Eevee's survived because she flew so quickly to Fortree City.

TM's:

Luke:
Shock Wave

Brianna:
Shadow Ball

Hiei:
Overheat

Draco:
Flamethrower
Steel Wing

Misuzu:
Water Pulse
Ice Beam
Surf

Tamaki:
Aerial Ace
Giga Drain

Reeah:
Earthquake
Sludgebomb

Tamaki will be in Erik's party in place of Reeah, and Reeah will the box.

Trainer is my preferred team, although I wouldn't mind Alpha Guild or Syndicate. Or any of the others, really, except for my non-preferred team, of course. XD I'm new to this stuff so I don't have a huge preference yet.

When WAR gets busy I may put it on hold for a bit, though, if everyone's involved... It;s hard to keep such a huge plot up and going doing war, or rather, it will be. ^^; Splitting attention doesn't always work so great. But it won't die!

I'll go check and see if Firefly posted in just a bit. And yeah, I'm in the War. Sub-leader of Rocket. So, if this could slow down a bit during War, that would make things easier on me... :oops:
