Hi! So this is side story that supplements the RP "Pokémon: Jewels of the Aether" by @[member="WavePearl"] Simply put, this is based off of a character @[member="~Seeker Of Shadows~"] made in the first version ("Song of the Elements" which is now defunct) and a character I made. We kind of got attached to these two and where they were going, since there was a romance going on, so this RP is the other side of the story! Leon's Profile Spoiler Name: Leon Pinetree Age: 17 Appearance: His basic appearance is the equivalent of the Cool Boy template in the Wii's Pokémon Battle Revolution. Hair is light blue (I think), or dark blue, however you see it. But its blue! He wears a forest-green cloak as a means to hide in the trees whenever he needs to, and under the cloak he wears a blue dress shirt and black pants supplied by the trading company he worked for. However, he still keeps the white hat and shoes. If he could, he would opt for the Company blazer to go with his dress shirt, but the cloak was a priority. Class: Ranger Abilities: Healing Balm, Leaf Cloak, Fletchling Wing, Flaming Arrow, Sniper's Vantage History: Spoiler In his early teenage years Leon worked for a major trading company operating in the port city of Lalusi (a fantasy version of Larousse) as a scout to observe interactions. His skills with stealthy surveillance and mobility made him an invaluable member of the Company, as it allowed him to relay information of surrounding areas, possible adversaries, and potential incoming traders. As a result of this, the Company usually posted Leon on daytime and nighttime lookout as a fully qualified. As well, Leon is a capable trader. A few years later, the port city fell under attack and a stockade was set up around the city, which was probably meant to starve the city if nothing else. Leon himself was captured on one of his patrols. Now officially kidnapped, Leon and a handful of other prisoners were being smuggled to a region unknown... Leon wonders now if he'll ever get to see his younger cousin again. Personality: Spoiler Leon is a pretty calm guy with a stable mind but this compensates for his shyness to others. However, once he is comfortable Leon would be willing to have a casual talk; albeit not too much, as he is a courteous type. His stable mind allows him to endure irritable conversations, and keeps himself cool as he needs to be. Not to mention Leon has a sense of humour when he talks. He cares for others (especially those close to him or his allies) even if he maintains a steady coolness and shyness within him. Otherwise, Leon's steady mind makes him quite a marksman with the bow. In addition, Leon is a decent cook, having cooked meals with his cousin Maria on many occasions and receiving extra Company training on doing that. He has an obsession with pies. His weakness, though, is sleepiness! That is, because of the long hours he worked at night, his sleeping hours are limited. As a result, he tends to have less-than-frequent-enough sudden naps in the middle of the day. However, his other weakness is his tendency to fall into a demoralised state if he carries the burden of self-failure. Leon is also quite handsome, as Maria remarked; but the thought of starting a relationship with someone would make him shudder. He is comfortable with girls, sure, but a close relationship... He would have to think more than twice about that. As well, he would become very flustered the moment someone tries: and girls around his age would find him cute if he was flustered. Inventoryn a shoulder bag: two empty flasks, the black Company blazer, and a seashell Maria gave him right before he left Larousse. Belle's Profile Spoiler Name: Belle Species: Bellossom Known moves: Leaf Storm, Leaf Blade, Magical Leaf, Sweet Scent History: Spoiler Leon's partner, whom he raised since she was an Oddish back at Lalusi. Leon was younger at the time, and by the time he was hired by the Company, Belle was also pressed into service as a Gloom. Throughout assisting Leon's outings as a partner, Belle provided valuable backup to Leon by giving extra cover to Leon's surveillance duties and - in particular- mobility. She could cut down leaves and branches to clear paths for Leon while also using leaves to give him cover. As well, Sweet Scent was an excellent detector for hostile and acts as good perfume (which Leon would never use). In addition to Leon, Belle also grew up alongside Leon's cousin Maria, and Maria's Kirlia (Evergreen). Personality: Spoiler Belle is regarded as the cutest thing as a Bellossom. Unlike Leon, who is the cool type, Belle is more dynamic. She is impatient on one hand, clumsy on the other (because of her small size, and explains her habit of running into other people's feet). On the other hand, she can become embarrassed of Leon pretty easily because of his 'ridiculous' moments. Sleeping on the job, for example, or saying/doing not-normal things. And, unlike Leon, Belle usually stays awake in daylight hours than Leon ever would. Bottom line: Belle facepalms a lot because of Leon! Not to mention her dynamic personality involves a timid nature too, and she often hides behind whatever she can find whenever she's scared. Like Leon, she isn't the best fighter, but she is competent at least. Often she practises with Leon. As for hobbies: Belle enjoys almost anything artistic. From storytelling to dances to paintings. She really does enjoy them! Cities and Towns: Counterparts Spoiler Kalos Region--Kalski Spoiler Vaniville Town--Asame Aquacorde Town--Aquarellia Santalune City--Nouvaria Camphrier Town--Vanita Cyllage City--Relievera Lumiose City--Illumis Ambrette Town--Kojin Geosenge Town--Sekitai Shalour City--Yantara Coumarine City--Tempera Laverre City--Romantia Dendemille Town--Frescora Anistar City--Flusselles Couriway Town--Mosaia Snowbelle City--Fractalia Kiloude City--Batika Hoenn Region--Fayan Spoiler Larousse--Lalusi Dewford Town--Myokara Credit for these names goes to Wavepearl, and these names are used with permission. Combat is probably not going to be a huge part of this story, but why not create some fighting once in a while? Also, I do intend to keep the play informal... To keep the combat super simple, the enemies will be relatively weak compared to Wavepearl's thread. If we fight, we just have to list the three actions we want per character and they'll be repeated at once, along with the enemy's. So three cycles of combat will happen at once.
