    The Basic Premise:

    In the world of Chiron, a fantastic Pokeworld far from the Pokeworld we know today, magic comes from a mystical substance known as Aether. For the most part, Aether is seen as helpful, but for those that would seek to abuse Aether and its power, there is the Order of the Aether Knights--an order of magic knights and paladins that defend the world from hostile monsters and other threats, as well as keeping the peace (though there are other orders too)

    But not long after Lusamine, the 250th leader of the order and only the fourth female to lead it, ascended to lead, rumors of otherworldly beasts from another world began to swirl, and what started as intellectual curiosity became a near obsession for Lusamine. While she kept up an air of kindness in the public eye, in private she became cold, angry, and distant from even her comrades.

    Lusamine's daughter Lillie, who preferred holy magic to knightly deeds, suspected that something had changed in her mother, and vowed to find out why her mother had been drawn to the darkness, and purge it before her mother did something truly terrifying. Her brother Gladion agreed to stay behind and find out what he could from inside the Order's walls, and wished Lillie luck on her quest.

    But being a white mage that preferred to heal rather than fight, Lillie decided to look for help elsewhere--they could fight on her behalf, and she would make sure their wounds were healed and unpleasant conditions purged.

    When she was ambushed by a bandit gang on the road, she found help in a group of best friends who had been traveling on a great journey together--free the angels that serve as Arceus' envoys, unite the eight Jewels of the Aether they hold to summon the god-Pokémon Arceus. Adventurers did not often make the long and perilous journey, but when they did, it was usually in a time of great danger, and Arceus needed to be summoned.

    The adventurers felt sorry for Lillie, and offered to help--maybe summoning Arceus would purge the evil presence from her mother, and banish the otherworldly beasts back to their own world.

    Lillie agreed, but little did she know, she would be embarking on the adventure of a lifetime.

    You play one of the adventurers--will you be able to help Lillie, and save the world?

    Your character's name: Kiseki Kuzaki

    Your character's age (anywhere from 13-17): 14

    Your character's basic appearance: She has yellow hair, styled as a large, unkempt ponytail at the side. She has purple eyes.

    She wears a long, blue coat that goes until her wrist, worn atop a sewn white undershirt, with frills at the end. She wears short blue shorts that go before her knees, and wears a blue decorated sock, along with blue boots. A small bell keeps the blue coat together, with white ribbons holding the other parts of the coat to make sure it doesn't unravel suddenly as it is quite worn-out already.


    Your character's class (chosen from the list below): Minstrel

    Your character's known abilities (pick anywhere from two to four abilities from the Level 1 ability list): Song of Fire, Song of Earth, Song of Wind, Song of Water, and Mystic Melody

    Your character's basic personality and known history: Kiseki is a girl who has been striving to live her life because she grew up as an orphan. Her parents died from an adventure that seemed to have a huge reward. Due to that event she became a pessimist, always expecting the worst in her life. She is also probably the most sensitive amongst all of the people that she is with, thereby making her the least popular among all of the people she is with. People tend to bully her for her weakness, which results in her usual suicidal thoughts. However, once she is around the people she cares for the most, she will do anything to protect them, even if it would risk her life.

    She has a companion, an Altaria, named Chieri, who stands as her guardian as they are close friends that have met ever since Kiseki was a child and Chieri was a Swablu. They became close after Kiseki saved Chieri from a group of kids who were hurting it and after Chieri saved Kiseki from falling down a steep cliff.


    Your character's initial inventory (what is your character currently carrying?): A golden harp, a book of songs and a picture of her parents.

    Pokémon: Altaria

    Your character's name: Seline
    Your character's age (anywhere from 13-17): 15

    Your character's basic appearance: Quite petite, many can often confuse her for a young child despite being a few years off of being a adult. Wavy shoulder length hair that is a vibrant reddish brown, peach-tinted skin with light freckles on the cheeks and elbows. Bright brown eyes hide behind metal glasses. She wears a white undershirt with a loose brown skirt over, attached with small copper brooches in the back. Her shoes are flat and worn, but still visibly dark brown.

    Your character's class (chosen from the list below): Cleric
    Your character's known abilities (pick anywhere from two to four abilities from the Level 1 ability list): Heal, Scan, Raise, Shinera, Cure
    Your character's basic personality and known history: Seline came from a wealthy family, who weren't so accepting on her dreams of becoming a Cleric. They enjoyed her enthusiasm, but wanted her to seek something less dangerous in life. She stuck around until her 15th birthday and her parents attempted to put her into an arranged marriage. That night she ran from home and has since then been living the life of a cleric for hire. The fear of being rejected has been beaten into her by her family, so she's afraid to ask for work, however she often hopes that she'll one day find a group she can stay and go on adventures with.
    Your character's initial inventory (what is your character currently carrying?): Wooden staff, 3-4 small apples, and a empty bottle that once held fresh milk

    Name: Soren (male)
    Age: 16

    Appearance: Long white hair, blue eyes, white but slightly tanned skin. Wears loose beige pants that go just below his knees, leather boots, and a white shirt.

    Class: Fighter

    Abilities: Meditate, Thunderous Roar, Golem Fist, Dancing Leaves
    Personality: While not too trusting at first, Soren is a very loyal person towards his friends and family. He has a good way with words, and can talk or charm his way out of most situations. He loves the ocean, fishing, and exploring. If he needs to be alone and/or clear his head, you will always find him fishing somewhere near unless there are no bodies of water in the vicinity, in which case he will most likely either climb a tree and sit at the top or just wander around a bit.

    History: Soren was the middle child into a middle-class family with a successful fishing busines, consisting of himself, his mother, his father, his older brother and his younger sister. They lived on the coast of a large bay because of this, and he developed a deep love for the ocean as a result. As soon as he was old enough, he would go out with his father and the workers on their boats and fish with them. But, although he did love fishing, he did not want to go into the family business. Instead, he took fighting classes and wished to become a traveler. Once he turned fifteen, he revealed this to his family, and left home a month later. He has traveled a great many places, first as a trader, then a fisherman, and finally a fighter-for-hire.

    Inventory: Two iron knuckles (one for each hand), a fishing rod, a fishing net, a canteen, and a small bag of granola.

    (By the way, I am also new to the RPG-style RPs.)

    But I thought there was only room for four?! Oh well, I'll go right on ahead... With Leon Pinetree's younger cousin!

    Name: Maria Lougheed
    Age: 13
    Appearance: She has chin-to-shoulder length brown hair that sticks out on two ends and blue eyes. Maria is wears a white hairband, a forest green dress with silver trims, black shorts, and leather boots and belt to match. On top of it all, she wears an oversized midnight blue cloak she keeps on most of the time. The hood is especially useful if she just wants to 'disappear', though if someone were to notice, her appearance is laughable just because of how big the cloak is.
    (She is based off the Little Girl template in Pokémon Battle Revolution)

    Class: Warrior
    Abilities: Guard, Weapon Break, Armour Break

    Personality: Maria is the sweet, adorable, type such that she could be anyone's younger sister. Caring, gentle, and always strives for a fair victory - and that being said, she is also incorruptible in spite of her age. Maria likes to play games whenever downtime presents itself or, in its absence, she would irritate her cousin Leon to see if he had found a girlfriend yet. Otherwise, she would go around asking what people were doing or if they needed help with something, or she would go around doing small-scale shopping. Maria, though, is weak to spicy food. Just the slightest scent of it would drive her to tears. That being said, if you make Maria cry, you better watch out. No one will be tolerable of you if you do!
    Her other weakness, though, is that she is reluctant to draw out the sword because she just doesn't like fighting - at least not if there is someone to protect, hence her strong heart.

    History: Maria grew up in the port city of Larousse where her cousin, Leon Pinetree, worked for Sapphire Bay Company, the most dominant trading company in the area. While Leon worked for the Company as a scout, Maria spent her time gaining combat experience by getting occasional lessons from the Company guard - who taught Maria how to wield a sword properly. One night, while she was practising combat with her Kirlia (Evergreen), she received heartbreaking words from the Company that Leon had been kidnapped on one of his patrols and the kidnappers demanded the Company pay a ransom. While Maria figured this was a trap, and the Company acknowledged that, they played along with their assailants, and only then determinded that Leon had been taken abroad. It only got worse when the SBC and Maria realised the kidnappers were in fact an invading force that had set up a stockade around the port city. Not wanting to lose her home or her family, Maria persuaded the Company she could find a way to dissipate the impeding invasion. At the same time, she reassured her family that she would bring Leon back home safe. Receving Lillie's plight gave Maria the excuse to head out!
    While the invading force made an error that they couldn't block off the marine routes, they could overwhelm Larousse at any hour. One night, Maria put her hood over her head and boarded an SBC sailboat to a distant trading post to start her journey.

    Initial inventory: In a leather satchel: 1 Heart Charm, SBC identification papers, Leon's Friction Bow (for making fire)

    (Hey, Wave. Know if she could use a shield in place of a sword?)

    I decided to expand it a little bit to account for the fact that this is an RP vs. a story, and smaller numbers of characters work better in writing a story (though you can work with larger amounts of characters if you know what you're doing)

    @[member="Shady Pirate"]--knit pants should be okay, or something similar
