    "The end times have come... blood spills blood and Pokemon, once our allies and protectors, have become corrupted by some invisible force. What are we but tasty morsels in the shadows of demons?"

    Atlas-- once a beautiful region that relished in years of peace --is now engulfed in war. The six quarreling nations that make up the continent have been locked in battle for decades upon decades. Betrayal and corruption is a common occurrence within each country's borders. There is no escape from the doubt and worry that plague the land.

    Yet the people of the seven nations of Atlas--

    Aurios, the Land of the Crystalline Snows,
    Argent, the Land of the Silver Tides,
    Leonias, the Land of the Roaring Valleys,
    Phoenicis, the Land of the Azure Skies,
    Fulmion, the Land of the Everlasting Fields,
    and Verdante, the Land of the Emerald Seas

    --do not pity each other. They continue to blame each other for their follies, adding fuel to the already blazing fire. They fight in the name of their gods, deeming each other heretics that must be converted. There is no end to the violence and mayhem in sight...

    And yet it only gets worse. Something evil stirs in the shadows, making wild herds and packs of Pokemon run rampant through the land. Cases of once peaceful creatures trampling village people in stampedes are common. Disappearances of children from cribs and beds even more so. No one really knows what is causing the Pokemon to go on killing sprees that involves both their own kind and humans... but all six nations of Atlas are blaming one another.


    The emperor of Phoenicis has decided it is high time for the countries to finally work together and see what is causing such mayhem. He has sent messengers all over Atlas, telling them to spread word of a campaign he is holding within his very nation's capital. The campaign is asking for volunteers-- mostly soldiers --of each country to gather together and search for the cause of the needless violence to bring an end to it once and for all. They will set out on a journey throughout the whole land, braving thirst, hunger, disease, death... amongst other things.

    They might not return.


    Plot

    You shall play as volunteers, most of which are soldiers from each nation, roaming around Atlas in search for the cause of the wild Pokemon's sudden violence. Even though most of you are enemies, you must work together to survive. You must trust the people surrounding you to keep one another safe and remain sane enough to function.

    Though this may not go according to plan. One of the volunteers may be after another's neck, stopping at nothing until the one they want dead lies in a pool of blood at their feet. Another may be selfish enough to not care that others cannot continue on. The volunteers must withstand both natural and unnatural forces in order to make it back home... though many may not come back.

    Countries of Atlas

    [​IMG]

    Aurios

    Aurios is located to the extreme north of Atlas. It is deadlocked in winter for most of the year and blizzards constantly pummel the stark mountains that line the nation. Lakes and small woods dot the country here and there, and a rather large mountain range runs from its southern parts to Leonias. Temperatures can drop to -4ºf during its long winters.

    The people of Aurios worship Suicune as a deity. To them, Suicune is supposed to bring the winter and precipitation. Their god is one of elegance and grace, and those who move fluidly and with ease are said to be blessed by it. There is a festival held in Aurios every winter to praise Suicune for ending fall and bringing the land one step closer to summer.

    Argent

    Just south of Aurios lies Argent. A large mass of woods run all the way to the shoreline where one can find shrines. Large, white cliffs look over the shores and beautiful ocean. Temperatures are mild in this country; it fluctuates from 41ºf to 62ºf in summer time. The weather can vary from clear skies to flood-causing storms.

    Argentians worship Lugia, which is said to bring seasonal rains and control the moon. Since rain is important for crops and a source of water, it is treated with utmost respect. It is also considered a god of the valiant and those with pure souls.

    Many people from Xiurong have fled from the ravaged continent to escape death and destruction. The immigrants mostly populate the rural parts of Argent, while "trueblood" Argentians have settled the urban areas.

    Leonias

    The western parts of this nation cuts in between Argent and Phoenicis. Its land is mostly mountainous terrains and valleys. A dormant volcano lies to its south. Temperatures can range from slightly chilly to temperate; the usual would be around 50°f. Clear or cloudy skies are the norm here.

    Entei is the Leonians' god, and it is said to bring the summer time weather. People also state that it causes forest fires and droughts, making it seem like a vengeful god. Even though this is the case, the inhabitants of Leonias are fond of Entei, deeming that it brings an end to things that have dragged on for too long and thus restores balance.

    Phoenicis

    Located to the south of Argent, Phoenicis is certainly warmer than the northern countries. This nation's forests explode in color during summer all the way to mid-winter. Shrines can be found atop small hills. Temperatures tend to be warmer in this kingdom, with 60°f being the norm. Clear skies tend to be seen, with winters being the rainiest. Summers tend to be rather hot.

    The people of Phoenicis worship Ho-Oh as their deity; to them, Ho-Oh is both the end and the beginning-- a God of reincarnation and redemption. Like Leonias, Phoenicis worships their God as one that brings the summertime. It is also known for blessing the golden-hearted and the brave.

    Fulmion

    The forests end and the plains and fields begin once you set foot in this country. Grassy meadows and plateaus are a regular sight. Winds are to be expected here, causing the temperatures to vary from 68°f to 59°f. Rainy weather is common.

    Raikou is worshiped here as the god of thunderstorms and lightning. This deity is said to be fond of those with fierce personalities. Fulmi people believe Raikou brings luck to whoever sees it.

    Verdante

    To the very south of Atlas lies Verdante. The plains have been replaced with lush rainforests and a treacherous swamp is located to the northeast of the kingdom. Hot and humid, this kingdom is the warmest in the region. Temperatures can be seen going above 86°f during the summers.

    Verdantians worship Celebi as a god of peace and hope. Due to this, people from Verdante are often calm and peaceful. Verdantians hold festivals every spring to celebrate the return of warmer weather.

    OTHER REGIONS

    Xiurong

    A once bustling, feudal continent, Xiurong has been reduced to a wasteland due to the wrath of a destructive beast. It is located to the east of Atlas across the Ebony Sea. Not many people dare to visit the land as it is stated to be cursed and overrun by demons and dangerous creatures of all types.

    Naranai

    Naranai was considered to be the largest and wealthiest country. It was once known for its craftsmanship. Now, most of this "territory" is covered in ruins. Ivory statues of a feathered Dragon-type can be seen scattered here and there. Fields and hills make up much of the once largely populated country. It was to the eastern-most part of the country.

    Sinjin

    Naranai's rival nation at one point, the people of Sinjin banded underneath a banner with a red-eyed dragon that was said to be the equivalent of Raikou in regards to its affinity to thunder and lightning. Many skilled smiths used to come here to live and work. It was never low in materials to make weapons as its land is covered in rocky cliffs rich in a variety of ores. It was to the western-most part of the country, which is closest to Atlas.

    Nakashimamoto

    Not much was known about the Nakashimamoto people except for the fact that they did not worship a god. The Nakashima, or so the people were called, preferred to believe that the world was guided and ruled by invisible forces most likely known as "magic". Some say that they were able to communicate with Pokemon and each Nakashima only owned one of the beasts. It is said that their bonds' strengths could rival those of the gods' combined. The nation used to make up a cluster of warmer islands to the south of Sinjin and Naranai.

    It is assumed that all Nakashima are dead and thus their legacy of communicating and bonding with Pokemon the way they once had has ended.


    INFO ON POKEMON

    - People are allowed to have at most three Pokemon each. There may be people without Pokemon. A person with one Pokemon is considered to know the basic principal of Pokemon. A person with two can handle them quite well. A person with three are considered adept at handling Pokemon.
    - Pokeballs are not invented yet and thus one must tame or form bonds with Pokemon if one wants to keep them.
    - You may have fully evolved Pokemon.
    - You may not have legendary Pokemon. They are usually reserved to royalty (which are NPCs).
    - There can and will be Pokemon variations. This means that Pokemon may be skinnier, have longer wings, have longer necks, longer fur, differently colored eyes, etc. Do not make extreme changes, however.
    - There can and will be Pokemon interactions. They will be able to speak with and form relationships with one another.
    - Mega evolution has not been discovered and thus is not allowed.
    - There are certain types of Pokemon that are not allowed. Be reminded that this is medieval/feudal fantasy and man-made Pokemon are non-existent. This includes Porygon, Muk, etc.
    - Shiny Pokemon are extremely rare. Keep this in mind when picking your Pokemon.

    INFO ON POKEMON TYPES

    Each type of Pokemon is considered and treated differently than others due to myth, rumor, superstition, and legend. Your Pokemon do not have to be like this. Consider them as stereotypes~

    - Normal-types are considered pets or benevolent creatures that mean no harm.
    - Fire-types are thought of as passionate, brave, and hard to train Pokemon. One who has a Fire-type on their team is thought of as patient and able to withstand strong personalities. Wild Fire-types are said to bring times of war.
    - Water-types are usually trusted by humans as they are thought of as "pure" beings. They are treated with respect.
    - Grass-types are considered healers and harbingers of warmer weather. If there are no Grass Pokemon around an area, it can easily be thought of as cursed or poisoned by darkness.
    - Electric-types are said to be partners of cheery and energetic people. Many say they are loyal companions.
    - Ice-types are considered mysterious, but not exactly dangerous. Still, it's better to keep your distance. Ice-types are said to bring winter.
    - Fighting-types are thought as extremely loyal companions that form unbreakable bonds with their partners.
    - Poison-types are thought of as disgusting creatures that corrupt everything they touch. Many are said to bring death and disease.
    - Ground-types are said to be reliable and strong. Some may be a little dry when it comes to personality, though, or so they say.
    - Flying-types are considered as free-spirited beings that know no bounds. A person who has a Flying-type are said to have a similar personality to their winged Pokemon.
    - Psychic-types confuse many people. To keep it simple, humans have deemed them magical and mysterious.
    - Bug-types are considered pests by many due to them eating crops. Many people don't like them.
    - Rock-types are said to live a long time and are reliable and strong, much like Ground-types.
    - Ghost-types are considered demons and thus are said to be deadly and filled with deceit. They are said to possess people.
    - Dark-types are not easily trusted by humans. They are treated much like Ghost-types.
    - Steel-types are treated as harbingers of war.
    - Dragon-types are extremely respected and feared. Those who have Dragon-types as partners are deemed valiant and brave-hearted warriors.
    - Fairy-types are considered to be mythical yet friendly Pokemon. However, many people are wary of their mischief.


    Rules

    - No godmodding, flaming, etc. You should know this by now.

    - You may make as many characters as you'd like, but please keep them all active.

  3. [​IMG]

    Username: Ketori

    Name: Suzume

    Age: 21

    Gender: Female

    Country of Origin: Phoenicis

    Weapons: Naginata, Katana.

    Pokemon:

    [​IMG]
    Seraph ♂ | Flamethrower - Wild Charge - Close Combat - Extremespeed
    Somewhat grumpy, Seraph isn't the one for jokes. He's the one who is in charge of Suzume's band of Pokemon. Serves as a mount for Suzume both in and out of battle. His fur is more ruffled and spiked than other Arcanine, and his right ear is nicked. There is also a scar over his right eye.

    [​IMG]

    Mauve ♂ | Moonlight - Shadow Ball - Crunch - Hyper Beam
    Mauve is a slight clone of Seraph; it doesn't take much to irritate him. He is, however, less rash and impulsive than Seraph, and definitely thinks much more than him before doing something dangerous. Mauve gets his name from his different colored eyes; instead of being crimson, they are violet.

    [​IMG]

    Caius ♂ | Dragon Pulse - Air Slash - Dark Pulse - Boomburst
    The comedy relief of Suzume's little army. Caius is a thief-- a kleptomaniac, to be frank. Even though he can be quite annoying sometimes, he serves Suzume as a scout and reports to her as soon as he gets new information. Friendly and loving, he loves attention. Unlike other Noivern, all of his neck is feathered, including the normal place above his chest. His tail is also tufted. Because of his difference in appearance, he is usually mocked and called a "flying half-shaved Mareep".


    Appearance: A rather fit woman, Suzume maintains somewhat of a curvy figure which isn't noticed when she is in her armor. Her hair, a bright platinum blonde that seems white, is usually tied up in a pony-tail. Her eyes are a warm, earthy brown that can become sharp like a knife in an instant. Her chest and rear end are decently sized for her age, which is surprising-- apparently many people expect her to be "flat" under her armor. Her left leg bears scars from a previous battle and she walks with a slight limp.


    Personality: Suzume doesn't particularly act like a woman around others; she is brash and blunt, not afraid to tell anyone what's on her mind. Some people call her "silver-tongued" as she always has something to say. She dislikes being proved wrong and will often argue her point until the end. She appears to have a hidden anger deep within her that sometimes peeks out when she is extremely aggravated.

    Sarcastic and somewhat rude, she dislikes it when people prod her too much for information on her past. Despite being a fiery and sassy woman, those who know Suzume well know that she is a valiant woman that refuses to roll over and show her belly. Some may call her friendly while others deem her caring and compassionate. Those who don't know her, however, think of her as a bitch.

    Short Biography: Her early years are a mystery to others. She despises talking about it and will do anything to avoid speaking about her times as a child. When pestered to the point of annoyance about her past, she explains that she hatched from an egg in the middle of the forest and was raised by a pack of wild Arcanine. The ones closest to her know that she joined the Phoenician army when she was just seventeen and has survived for four years. Those four years, however, have been quite the eventful ones for Suzume; she has been in more battles than she can count and plans on being in more for a while.

    Suzume's plans at the moment include joining the volunteers on a journey through Atlas in search of some foul thing that "makes the Pokemon crazy". Even though she is worried about what she will find on her travels, she won't let it show.

    THE WITCHDOCTOR

    Username: Sen
    Name: Thea
    Age: 22
    Gender: Female
    Country of Origin: Verdante
    Weapons: A simple wooden crafted bow and a set of arrows with stone arrowheads. Also armed with the knowledge of herbs and medicine.​

    Jiba
    Jiba
    - Shadow Sneak
    - Hypnosis
    - Dream Eater
    - Ominous Wind


    Jiba is extremely mischievous and is quite the prankster. He will constantly jump out of his keystone to frighten others and tends not listen to others. As an Odd Keystone, he had been dropped and abandoned by the man that had awakened him, leaving the 'rock' to fend for itself. Jiba had been found by Thea in the forests where she lived. Although the two of them get along quite well, Jiba's presence doesn't quite solve the issue of the local townspeople viewing Thea as a doctor of witchcraft...

    His Odd Keystone is often kept safe in a leather strap pouch that Thea wears around her whenever he prefers to stay in that form.

    He prefers to fight dirty, using his shadows to confuse and confound enemies, putting them to sleep as often as possible.
    Stargrove

    Stargrove
    - Horn Leech
    - Aromatherapy
    - Leech Seed
    - Double Kick


    Stargrove is quite mother like and friendly to be around once you get to know her, but she is quite suspicious of strangers, preferring them not to approach Thea unless she shows clear indication that she recognises them. Once a normal inhabitant of the forests of Verdante, Stargrove had been injured during a storm, only to bond with the human she had been frightened of before she had healed the Sawsbuck. Protective and brave, Stargrove serves as her assistant in her work and her steed.

    Stargrove is quite normal for her species, she stands at 6'03 (190cm) which is tall enough to allow Thea to ride around the forest as she pleases. Like her species, she changes according to the seasons, but she never stops helping the human she bonded with. It should be noted that her horns aren't as long as they could potentially be.

    This Sawsbuck is her main damage dealer, her back legs packing quite the punch. She is also a healer, her aromatherapy getting rid of any potential diseases and illnesses.


    Personality: Thea is someone who likes fun, even for her age, having a friendly personality to go with it. Despite being shunned from the others and being accused of being a witch, she happily lives in the forests away from towns with her partners and other wild Pokemon, learning the ways of traditional medicine and the plants that grow in her newfound home. There are a few people who recognise that she's a normal human and regularly come to visit her and be healed. She's also quite intelligent with her knowledge of plants, but can be quite childish. She's not happy with the way she looks, but Thea knows there's not much she can do about it. Although not what others would classify a 'witchdoctor', she does practice nature-worshipping, tending to the statues of Celebi that reside in the forest whenever she stumbles across them.


    Appearance: Thea is extremely small for her age and is often mistaken to be a child whenever she leaves her home in the forests of Verdante. Much to her disappointment, unlike the other girls living in the villages and towns, Thea is a mere 4'7 (140cm) and weighs 77lbs (35kg). She has a very child-like stature, with a skinny body. She's quite pale, her skin having a cream colour. Although her hands are smooth from handling the herbs and plants of the forest floors, the rest of her body is quite rough and dirty from life in the forest. Her wrists and ankles are very thin, yet she continues to wear very baggy clothing, or whatever she can scavenge from the towns. She's also flat chested. For decoration, she prefers flowers and creates crowns out of them which she wears. In order to look similar to the Sawsbuck she had befriended and tamed, she wears sticks to imitate the horns of her partner. Her eyes are an emerald green, like jewels in the darkness of her home. Thea's hair is a light blonde colour, long enough to reach her hips.


    Short Biography: Most of her early years were of her going to the forest daily to study the plants that grew there, brewing medicine from them and testing their effectiveness. Though over time, the way she worked and how she always seemed to love the forest more than the town had earned her the title of a witchdoctor. Rumors began spreading of how she would be able to curse others with magical potions and cured her patients with witchcraft, the people of the towns shunning her and forcing her to leave their town. Not that Thea minded, she found it hard to settle into the forests at first but eventually came to live in a place she loved. Showing love and affection to nature and the Pokemon that lived with her, she was concerned at the rumours of something 'foul' that affected the Pokemon terribly. hearing around these volunteers, she joined, in order to see if she could help all Pokemon with her knowledge she had obtained through her years in the wild.

  5. Username: Crescent

    Name: Haku

    Age: 22

    Gender: Male

    Country of Origin: Argent

    Weapons: His primary weapon is a Naginata, and his secondary is a Tantou (Dagger).

    Pokemon:
    [​IMG]
    Ryou | | Megahorn, Aqua Tail, Superpower, Dragon Tail
    Prideful and fatherly, Ryou has proclaimed himself as the elder of Haku's group. He is usually Haku's choice of mount both on land and in water. In battle, he serves as Haku's second spear and focuses entirely on dealing heavy blows and damage. Ryou's horn is longer than what is normally seen for a Samurott, causing him to appear much more intimidating.

    [​IMG]
    Gardi | | King's Shield, Sacred Sword, Night Slash, Shadow Sneak
    Gardi is the target of much prejudice, often being called "demon" or a variation of thereof. Nevertheless, Gardi stands strong and remains by Haku's side at all times. In battle, he serves as Haku's shield and focuses most on defense and blocking. Gardi is silent and always observant of those around him-- sometimes to the point of uneasiness. It is extremely rare to see him in his blade form.


    [​IMG]
    Nene | | Sludge Bomb, Confuse Ray, Screech, Air Slash
    Nene is somewhat of a pacifist and dislikes being involved in conflicts. Regardless of what is generally believed, she is kind-hearted and loyal to Haku and never strays too far away from him. In battles, her role is to launch surprise attacks from above. Nene's wings are long and very wide, contrasting her much smaller body. Should someone say or do something awkward, she would be the first to roll her eyes.

    Appearance:
    Spoiler


    Haku's left eye has a scar around it. It has faded slightly over the years, but it's still visible enough to notice.
    His hair is dark and a few stray strands are long enough to reach his shoulders.
    While he cannot be described as 'muscular and bulky', his arms and chest certainly carry evidence from regular training.
    For his age, Haku is a bit on the short side.


    Personality: Vigilant, serious and dedicated, Haku serves his nation and deity with his whole being. He has little to no patience with people who belittle others and may be far too honest for his own good. He has a tendency to hold grudges and may even be rash and somewhat distant with people. Nevertheless, he is devoted to those he hold dear and passionate with what he believes is right. It is ill-advised to make him furious.

    Short Biography:
    Haku doesn't usually talk about where he comes from. Most will assume and take for granted that he is from Argent's capital, while others might go far enough to claim that he is 'one of those farmers'. If poked and prodded to the point where he finally snaps, he will reveal that he is from a village somewhere by the coast, and that he had no future there. Those who have been with him from the very start will know that when Haku joined the Argentian army, he had been awfully eager to begin his training, and they would also know that one should never ever engage him to a sparring fight on a bad day. He spent the last four years training as a soldier, while also heading out on missions into the surrounding countries.

    At the present, Haku's plans are to join the group of volunteers that are to meet in the capital of Phoenicis. While he can't say that he looks forward to meet people worshiping foreign gods, he is constantly reminding himself that he is doing this for the sake and safety of his nation.

    Other: "There is only one god that I will praise, and that is Lugia."

    Username: Yosuke
    Name: Shui
    Age: 25
    Gender: Male
    Country of Origin: Argent (Xiurongese Immigrant)
    Weapons: Qiang (In picture)
    Pokemon:
    - "Jiao", Vaporeon, Female, Knows: Water Pulse, Return, Ice Beam, Surf
    - "Huang", Dewott, Male, Knows: Razor Shell, Swords Dance, Aqua Tail, Retaliate
    Personality: Shui is a very calm and collected individual. Rarely ever shows anger or intensity. Tends to be a thinker and takes his time in decisions. Enjoys silence and artistic beauty. Dislikes hotheaded individuals.
    Short Biography: The son of a philosopher and a farmer, Shui lived on the edges of Argent, near the sea, being a part of the segregated Xiurongese areas. As a young boy, Shui witnessed his father's works of profound philosophy in the forms of poems and paintings. His father always told him that Lugia itself witnessed and blessed Shui's birth, marking him as a child of the soft waters. Whether this was true or not, it did not matter. This went to inspire Shui to pursue a life like his father's, as a philosopher and a warrior-priest. So, at his coming of age, he left to study at a temple dedicated to Lugia. He would study for around five years with the warrior-priests of Lugia, and developed his sense of calm and fluidity, much like the soft waters, and his talent for martial art.

    When the King of Pheonicis sent out his summons, Shui answered. He was a very able warrior-priest, the most able of the temple, and one of the most able in his area of rural Argent. He also felt that, having been blessed by Lugia, or apparently so, he had a duty to the Pokemon, and to halt the squabbling of the nations of Atlas by providing an answer: peace. So, Shui enlisted to this venture right after the proud approval of his father and the tear-riddled nods of his mother.

    Username:
    Crow

    Name:
    Tachibana

    Age:
    27

    Gender:
    Male

    Country of Origin:
    Pheonicis

    Weapons:
    Triple-wielded odachi. Two on his hands and one in his mouth. They are made of used evolutionary stones that have lost their effects from catalysing an evolution, but they are still as durable as thousand-folded steel. They are made from Water Stone, Fire Stone and Thunder Stone respectively, which while rare, are common where he comes from.

    Pokemon:
    N/A

    Appearance:
    He is about 1.8 metres tall and ties his long hair up in a ponytail. He is slightly muscular as well.

    Personality:
    Tachibana is a serious man who does not normally fool around. However, this does not mean he is completely devoid of emotion. Tachibana has a caring side towards docile Pokemon and innocent people who only mean good. He will aid foes as a last resort, should they have a common goal.

    Short Biography:
    Tachibana's parents died when he was 13, many years ago, for reasons he refuses to speak of. Since then, he had travelled until he reached a little forest, where he found a village within.

    The village, however, was not inhabited by humans, but inhabited by Eevee and its various evolutions, coexisting in a community, creating cottages with their different abilities. It was like a fine utopia for Eeveekind. There was only one other human living there though - Yukinoshita. Yukinoshita lived among the various Eeveelutions and was older than Tachibana.

    Yukinoshita cared for Tachibana as he practiced his swordsmanship alongside the inhabitants of this village, allowing his many sword skills to be inspired by the various inhabitants of the village.

    At some point, Tachibana and Yukinoshita had a little marriage as a sign that they loved each other, surrounded only by their little woodland friends. They then had a child, Kinoshita. When their child was merely a month old, Tachibana set out on a journey to become stronger.

    He then hears of a campaign about the kingdoms uniting to defeat a common, unknown threat. Hearing this, the Ronin chose to volunteer, while his wife stayed to care for their child and village.

    Other:
    Tachibana invented the sword technique 'Subamegaeshi', which acts like the Pokemon Move Smack Down, except it slashes instead of smashes. It was invented when he was pondering about how to strike a fast-moving Taillow in mid-flight.
    This move is designed to work of flying units, but works on grounded units as well. Great speed is invested as the first strike cuts upwards to cause imbalance to the opponent. The second strike strikes down to halt the movement of the opponent. The third, ultimately, is a downwards cut to slam the opponent to the ground, mimicking a Talonflame catching its prey. These movements are very fast, that these set of moves could be performed once before a regular single sword strike slams down. However, it cannot be performed twice in a row as it drains stamina, allowing the user to only use other skills.
    Most of his weapon techniques are inspired by various evolutions of Eevee, their Moves to be precise.​

    Minami

    Name:
    Minami Nyx

    Age:
    21

    Gender:
    Female

    Country of Origin:
    Aurios

    Weapons:
    Katana #1; Nitōryū

    Minami's primary weapon of choice, strapped onto her lower back where she can access it with her right hand easily. This particular weapon is a double edged katana, who's design Minami came up with herself.
    It has a loop at the end of the blade, which allows her to handle it much like a kunai.
    She has a sheath that makes it look like an ordinary katana to give her the element of surprise when needed.

    [​IMG]
    Katana #2; Hyaku mairu

    Minami's second weapon of choice, this katana has the same kind of loop as her Nitōryū, but is used like an ordinary blade. The only thing special about it is it's length, which is about a quarter longer than usual katana. It is also strapped on her lower back, crossing sheaths with her other blade.

    [​IMG]
    Double sickle kusarigama; Karitoriki/Shinigami

    Her final weapon, preferred weapon against long ranged opponents. Karitoriki is a difficult weapon to wield and Minami has to admit she has not mastered it completely. She prefers not to use the weapon in combat yet due to it's unpredictable nature.
    The weapon has two sickles, instead of the usual weight at one end, allowing Minami to wield both sickles at the same time, switching between close combat and medium ranged attacks when needed.

    Pokemon:
    Mikadzuki (Mika/Tsuki)


    Name: Mikadzuki
    Species: Ninetales
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Mika has a somewhat intimidating aura around her, but is quite friendly when she likes you. She has a very jealous side towards everybody trying to get close to Minami and will play mischievous tricks on them in attempts to ruin the mood. She has been known to toss items at people using her psychic powers or pull their chair out from under them, all kinds of things. When Minami scolds her she will walk away in her most regal posture before sulking in a corner until she is called. Despite her jealous side, Mika wishes for her master to be happy with lots of friends and sees her teasing more of a test of worth.
    Minami holds her very dear and is never angry for very long, but being scolded is the worst thing in the world for the fox.
    Special traits: Mika's fur is very light, to the point of being as white as snow. She is not shiny, just peculiarly light in coloring. People in Minami's village proclaimed that the ninetales was blessed by Suicune with her white pelt.
    Other than that Mika's tails and mane are slightly longer than ordinary ninetales'.

    Kisuke

    Name: Kisuke
    Species: Noivern
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Despite his fearsome and frightening appearance, Kisuke is a lovable and mischievous pokemon that loves spending time with his master. He eats mostly bug pokemon and fruits, though Minami has seen him sneak off with some meat from time to time.
    Kisuke is always playful and enjoys nudging Minami or the rest of the team until they go along with him on flights or adventure. If anybody dares to threaten his master, Kisuke's fun-loving personality vanishes like snow in the harsh sun. There have been times where Minami had to forcibly restrain him to keep him from killing her attacker.
    Special traits: Kisuke's tail is longer than usual and his wings are abnormally big as well. His coloring seems to be a hue darker than ordinary noivern, but other than that he is an ordinary noivern.

    [​IMG]
    Kinzoku

    Name: Kinzoku
    Species: Metagross
    Gender: Male
    Personality: This metal monster is by far the most intimidating line of defense in Minami's team. Kinzoku is the one pokemon Minami hasn't bonded fully with yet. Being the newest edition in her team, he is a bit anti-social, often standing on the sidelines when the others have fun or go out on adventures. Minami doesn't push the large beast much, figuring that he'll come around eventually.
    Special traits: Kinzoku has no special traits besides his exceptional speed.

    [​IMG]


    Personality: Minami is somewhat silent and distant, anti-social if you will. She has been alone for many years now and though she encounters travelers at times, her meetings are brief and uneventful. The only one she really opens up to are her pokemon.

    It is not that Minami can't be friendly towards people, she just finds there to be no need for it. As such she may come over as cold or indifferent, while not meaning to be like that. Despite this fact, Minami would see no harm come to a comrade and will fight to protect them if needed.

    Short Biography:
    Minami was raised in a small village in Aurios called Toketsu, in the heart of snow and ice. In her particular village children set out when they came of age to either travel or find some other place for themselves, accompanied by the pokemon chosen to be their partner by birth date.

    On her fifth birthday Minami was introduced to the pokemon that shared her date of birth, a little vulpix it's tails only split into three. Minami was overjoyed by the little thing and immediately treated the fox as her own. The two slept, ate and bathed together, day in and out, growing closer with each day. When Minami reached the age of 10 she was allowed to go out of the village by herself. Her village relied mostly on the hunt and mining, so Minami was instructed in hunting from a young age and was going out on her own for the first time.
    She had a good hunt with her companion, returning home with a bundle of buneary's and some spearow for dinner. When she got back home though, she realized she had a stowaway in her bag; a tiny noibat that had hid away from the cold. It seemed it had lost its way from home and hid in her bag when confronted with the icy cold winds. Feeling sorry for the creature, Minami attempted to bring him to what she believed to be his home, only to see the little bat being chased out by zubat and noibat alike as she was attempting to walk back home. She took him back home and attempted to set him free a few times, but the bat refused to leave her side and eventually she just let him.

    Four years later, Minami was allowed to venture out and travel the world on her own, accompanied by her pokemon. She left after her uncle forged her two swords she had thought up and set out into the world. She ventured long and trained with her pokemon, both evolving in the process. Just a couple of years ago she encountered a lone metang that decided to follow her after a heated match and quickly evolved into a metagross.

    After so long, Minami felt traveling held no real purpose for her anymore and found new purpose when she heard of the campaign of the emperor, traveling down to the Capital.
