PERSONALITY: Damon is definitely quite the catch with ladies. He tends to portray himself as a badboy out on a mission. Now, if that doesn't scream mysterious, what does? In reality, Damon is just full of himself. He's totally narcissistic and just can't get enough of trying to make himself more and more appealing. He tries to be someone he isn't. Even though he knows what he's doing is wrong morally and that if his sister caught him acting this way he'd hear it from her forever - he still can't find it in himself to actually BE himself truly. Damon just has a hard time finding who he is and wants to be.
When Damon isn't out to impress anyone, or when he's with Nikki, he's down-to-Earth and warm with affection. He's overprotective and acts almost as his sister's father-figure (since the two hardly even knew their own parents). Damon just doesn't want to lose the only family he has left. Truthfully, although Damon lets people into his world, he can never find himself to trust anyone - besides those that have proven themselves to him in terms of loyalty and respect. After many betrayals in life, he can't see it in himself to fall in love like he used to or to look at the world optimistically. In turn, when Damon isn't out to impress he can absolutely be quite the pessimist.
APPEARANCE: Damon stands at 5'9'' with a sturdy and built body weighing out at a slim 138 lbs. Natural in color his hair is a striking black. His hair stands on it's own in short, spiky tufts leaving one thick strand curled on his forehead in an aqua tone - the only part of his dark hair that is colored. His face seems chiseled almost due to the fact it's nearly flawless in texture and composure. Unlike his sister, he has no freckles whatsoever. He has higher cheekbones though, giving him a slight squint when he blazes a smile. Along with his sister, his eyes are also a striking emerald and they too blend nicely against his lightly bronzed skin - from years of tanning.
His attire blends between surfer and metal on occassion. Usually his normal attire consists of a cut-sleeve black vest with white ruffles around the neck, no shirt, skinny, tattered blue-jeans with a chain connected to his left belt-loop connecting to a belt hoop near his zipper, and old, black dress-shoes. It goes without saying that his attire speaks out in a profound way. On his neck he wears a thin, silver-chained necklace with a small heart-shaped gold locket. Inside is a family picture of his sister Nikki when she was 3, Damon when he was 5, and his parents. Besides his outfit, Damon loves showing off his muscles after years upon years of hitting the gym. Of course, he has a chiseled abdomen to complement his features - not to mention biceps to lift 180+ lbs due to his training.
His GLADIATOR outfit takes on a personality of it's own. He's fitted with a black suit that covers almost his entire body. The toes and heels of his feet are left bare as well as his fingers. His suit doesn't travel to his head at all besides it being on his neck. To cover the missing suit-parts on his feet he's suited with boots that travel halfway up to his calves. His boots have swirling circles that permeate an oministic yellow glow. On either side of his thighs are yellow, spiky tufts that travel to just above his knees. They usually are connected to his suit. On his shoulders are spiked, yellow pads that are attached to the suit. This pattern is also seen on his wrists. On his wrists he has yellow, spiked tufts that resemble a Manectric's fur. This fur travels to the tips of his fingers, covering the top side of his hand almost. This tuft is definitely attached and cannot come off his suit, unlike the tufts on his thighs. On his chest and arms respectively there are swirling lightning bolts that glow the same ominous yellow in comparison to his boots - however the ones on his arms and chest resemble a shape more-so than his boots. On Damon's face there are arches under his eyes - in comparison to Nikki's. These also glow the same yellow that his suit gives off. His helmet is an exact copy of a Manectric's mane. His hair is covered in full - besides the blue lock that hangs down on his forehead. His helmet also has another feature that allows him put down a black, semi-transparent sheath that lowers to just above his nose, covering his eyes. This sensor is later described in abilities. This also changes his eye color from emerald to ruby when the sheath is lowered.
Damon has almost an unlimited supply of electricity built into his suit due to the fact the tufts of 'fur' on his suit conducts their own electricity whenever he's moving (and they can store his electricity). It is best not to touch his 'fur' unless said person wants to get their suit fried. His weaponry consists purely on his abilities spare his one weapon that doesn't directly fit any of his listed abilities (below). This weapon comes in a pair and is hidden beneath the tufts on his thighs. They are simple daggers that portray the same pattern as his suit. They aren't special besides the fact they're normal daggers for desperate attacking purposes.
HISTORY: Damon was born and raised in the glorious land of Nimbasa City, Unova. His parents were quite the bigshows and thus Damon also hardly knew anything about them as he grew older. In his early years he was what the other kids called mean, nasty, and downright evil. He was known for starting fights and picking on other children - mostly due to not having parents to teach him right from wrong growing up. Damon was especially cruel to the bullies that picked on his younger sister, Nikki. He was known for being suspended all throughout elementary school and most of middle school. Not to mention he had countless of psychologists monitoring him each time he came out of class.
As the years passed by Damon calmed down and focused his attention on the opposite sex. Hormonal and straight out of puberty Damon stopped causing problems for his schools - however, he did get into the occassional fight here and there to protect his sister. After graduating from high school Damon took time away from being his sister's protector and ventured off into the world of Pokemon training, thus, traveling away from his homeland of Unova and entering the foreign land of Hoenn. Since the two years he has been gone he hasn't once messaged his sister nor heard from her. The only reason Damon came back to Unova was because he received a mysterious letter from an organization calling themselves SUMMIT - offering him a chance to prove his power and might to show everyone who the strongest of the strong are - of course his ego drove him back to Unova...
POKEMON LINK: Manectric/Yellow.
ABILITIES: Eyes of the Wolf: When Damon activates his helmet his eyes change from emerald to ruby and his senses becomes heightened. He is able to see the heat signatures in every playable character as well as a special scent that follows each player. Due to his enhancements he is clearly able to hunt his opponents at a faster pace. However, the sensors can be a bit buggy at times if the opponent does something to throw him off, such as: hiding their scent, mixing scents, cooling down their bodies to almost frozen, etc.
Thunderblade: Damon is able to summon blades of lightning to help him in long-distance fighting - this technique also works in short-distance battles but isn't recommended. Damon is able to summon Thunderblades by emitting electrical charges from his suit and, in comparison to his sister, releasing them in the form of a blade of lightning. These blades are dagger-sized and are handy to throw. If in a short-distance battle Damon is able to size-up his daggers and make them into swords. However, this method usually isn't the wisest as it takes more power to create a sword then it does a dagger, not to mention, it takes a lot more time - time he may need on the grid.
Ears of the Wolf: When Damon's helmet is on he is able to hear things ten times more accurately and better than if his helmet was off. He basically retains a form of 'super-hearing' and can hear things up to a half-mile-radius. Of course, sounds from that far away tend to fade into murmurs more than clear sentences. However, due to this sensitive hearing ability this causes Damon to usually go bonkers after a short while. When his helmet is on he is unable to turn this feature off - unlike Eyes of the Wolf.
Discharge: When Damon is in danger or if he's surrounded he's able to discharge all of his excess electricity. In turn, this drains his electrical output and he is unable to summon his Thunderblades. Sadly, when this is also used his hearing goes out and he becomes deaf for about thirty minutes. If his Eyes of the Wolf ability is also used there's a 50% chance his ability gets short circuited and his vision becomes black - besides the opening near his nose being his only vision.
