Quick Updates

Weather Conditions

Season: Autumn

With the cooling season of Autumn, Ice-types are starting to re-emerge from their hibernation as Ghost-, Normal-, and Flying-types swarm in the largest numbers they will all year. In comparison, wild Fire- and Bug-type populations are falling in number. The migration of Flying-types to the south in search of warmer weather has also started, as Istin City starts to re-freeze and Autumn marks the beginning of Cypwater Point's rainy season. Handlers and Rogues alike should be wary: Ghost-type powers are boosted during this season, at the cost of being more prone to their triggers.

Aptitudes


Overall Appearance:
    Once upon a time, the first thing an observer would note about Evestalina Lennell was the spark of passion that glows within her. It is still there, though these days, people don’t tend to notice it at first. It’s there in her bright blue eyes, though it is hard to detect, because she is so much more guarded than before. It’s there, glinting at the twitching corners of her lips when she smiles, though this happens less frequently than it once did. A scar, not yet several years old, gently curves up her left cheek, so that men who as boys looked at her and saw beauty, now turn away, hiding pity, eyes already seeking someone who is not so broken, for who would willingly settle for damaged goods?

    Vestie is by no means weak, even though she is damaged. Standing around an average height of 5’4, she is slim in build, and while she lacks the muscle of a warrior, she is lean and fit and this has served her well in the years she has served as a Guard Scout in Dedrius. Her hair is long and wavy, and is the shade between dark blonde and light brown. What marks her as unforgettable these days is the absence of one of her legs - an injury she sustained near two years ago, one that almost killed her several times over. It is her right leg that had to be amputated, from just above the knee. She is able to get around well enough with a crutch, and once she finds a suitable steed, will take well to the saddle - using this as her main means of transportation.

    Clothing wise, when not in Guardian uniform, Vestie can be seen dressed in loose-fitting trousers (with the right leg pinned neatly so that it doesn’t get in the way. She dresses modestly, for she is not a vain creature, and leans more towards comfort and practicality than appearance. She tends to go for earthy tones, with a splash of green here and there, because it reminds her of home. She is rarely seen without a dark crimson bandanna at her throat - it is of the finest quality material, and was a gift from a very good friend.
Distinguishing Features:
  • Missing right leg from just above the knee
  • Scar on left cheek (obtained when she was badly injured)
Overall Personality:
    Vestie has always been sure of one thing: that she is loved and always will be. This is, perhaps, the most fundamental part of her being, and has gone a long way in shaping the woman she’s become. Second to the love from her family, she has almost always been sure of herself, in so much as she knows what she wants in life, what she will and won't do to get there, and rarely succumbs to peer pressure. Compassion and loyalty are traits that come naturally to her, and of these her father is especially proud. Her mother has always appreciated Vestie’s openness and agreeableness, and is of the opinion that a little bit of respect and approachability can take one very far.

    However, Vestie is not the most patient person, and inwardly can be quite cynical (but she tries her best not to be - she loathes this part of herself). The young woman also has a tendency to be a little stubborn, though she prefers to think of it as determination and ambition. Don’t get her wrong - it’s not that she thinks she’s better than those she resists. Rather, she stands steadfast, because she knows herself better than anyone, and she alone knows what she is truly capable of. She has little tolerance for people who grumble back take no action to change their situation, and when she was younger, she often got into trouble for snapping when she loses her patience.

    While certainly not being without her faults, in general, Vestie does her best to do the right thing, and is a naturally giving person; a giver of advice, a listening ear, a helping hand. She likes to think that her morals are sound, and tends to view rules in a respectful light, understanding that at least the majority of them are there for the benefit of all they apply to. Vestie has always done her best to stick to these, even when it gets a little hard for her (because sometimes her heart runs wild with emotion, and begs her to listen to it instead of do what is right in the eyes of the law. Have mercy, have mercy, but never pity). As of late, the codes that Guardians adhere to have come to be very important to her, more so than they have in the past. With all the chaos and grief and trauma, being a Guardian provides something solid for her to hold onto, and though she realises she may soon be facing her most difficult battles in the forms of fellow Guardians, she is not ready to give up on this life just because of her weakness and vulnerability, and will fight tooth and nail to keep it.

    Presently, however, she is no longer so certain of herself, and lately expressions of love come across as expressions of pity. She still knows what she wants, and is going to do all she can to get there, but is inwardly afraid that even her desire and determination and passion to serve as a Guardian are no longer enough. But Vestie’s even more afraid of giving up and bowing her head to all those who think that she is no longer capable and view her as a charity case. She seeks out solitude more often lately, finding that she finds peace in the silence and draws strength from stillness. While she’s not sure what the future holds, Vestie has courage enough to set out for one last journey.

    She doesn't want a new dream, that's what people don't understand. Just because she got hurt, and is no longer able to do all she used to, doesn't make her incapable. She is stronger than people believe her to be - she’s had to be, considering all the loss and grief she’s experienced. Many consider her vulnerable now, and view her present course of action as reckless. They call her stubborn, foolhardy, selfish even. But they’re wrong.

    Evestalina Lennell is a survivor. Vestie is a fighter. And her old dream is still beautiful, even if it's broken. She’s not giving up on it now.
History:
    Evestalina never knew her birth mother. She was raised instead by her maternal uncle and his wife, and though it was a difficult time for them, Evestalina gave them some measure of comfort in a time of mourning. See, Wilbur and Isolde Lennell had watched Wilbur’s sister grow sicker and sicker, and on top of that, the couple had been trying for several years now to start a family of their own with no success. So, Wilbur and Isolde were parents to an orphaned infant, and she in turn bought countless joys to their life. While not well-off, both had fairly secure jobs serving in the local Guard Barracks, and made sure that their little Vestie always had what she needed.

    She grew up, loved and encouraged, and has dreamed all her life of following in their footsteps. Both of her adoptive parents were pleased by her interest in their profession, and spent as much time with her as they could. Wilbur taught her how to hold a sword properly, showed her how to position her feet, demonstrated how best to use a shield. Isolde helped her catch her first pokemon - a ponyta bred from Isolde’s own rapidash. Together, mother and daughter saddle-broke the fire pony, and then seven year old Vestie began learning how to ride. Once she gained confidence and established an unbreakable bond with her steed, there was no stopping the pair, who were alike in many ways; fiery and free spirited.

    They grew together, girl and horse, and in time, as soon as she was allowed, she took up training at the barracks in preparation for joining as a Junior Guardian. As soon as she came of age, she swore an oath of service to Councilman Reaves. She had come to look up to the older gentleman, having gotten to know him during her frequent visits, and in the years she served under him, Vestie came to admire him very much. He was understanding, and forgiving of errors she made in those early years, but by no means was he lenient. The law was the law, and he made sure to keep his Guardians in line. He was a firm yet kind patron, and when he saw late one afternoon Vestie riding Ivo (who had recently evolved into a rapidash) bareback in the barrack’s pen set aside for riding practice, he asked if she’d be interested in receiving training to become a Guardian Scout. Vestie wholeheartedly said yes.

    She loved her job, finding joy in it, just as her parents did. Despite the difficulties she faced on missions occasionally, she never lost her stride. Nothing shook her confidence, not even when tension began to rise in her hometown, and word came of unrest growing all over the region. And then the Schism ignited, and set fire to Vestie’s world.

    Councilman Reaves was found dead. People turned on one another, and in the midst of her grief and fear, she tried her best to stay true to her calling, aiding those in need. Some Guardians were angry, enraged by the loss of Reaves. Others blamed mages for the whole upheaval. Vestie struggled to control her anger, and cage the resentment she felt towards a group of people, even though she wasn't sure herself who was to blame for her patron’s death. It took weeks for her to claw the hatred out of her heart, but she managed in the end, and offered to escort a healer and her family to safety. They were attacked by a group of vigilantes. Vestie and the Guardsman who had joined her held them off long enough for the civilians to escape. The blue-eyed scout almost taste victory.

    And then a machoke blocked her path. Broke Ivo’s right foreleg. The rapidash crumpled, and Vestie fell with him. Screamed as his ribs were crushed. The body of her beloved companion trapped her leg, and it was hours before she was pulled free, for Guardian Haynes refused to leave her for fear that another riled up mob would come across Vestie first. He could not move the rapidash on his own, and none of his Pokemon were capable either. In the end, it was the family they had saved that came to their rescue, and the healer did the best she could to save Vestie’s leg. But it was too late.

    Wilbur and Isolde nearly lost their beloved daughter three times. The infection was fierce, and for the longest time refused to release Vestie from its grip. She pulled through, though, but her recovery lasted the better part of a year. It's taken months for her to regain strength and get used to the loss of her leg. She has struggled to adjust, and still mourns the loss of her beloved Ivo. The Guardian who accompanied her on that fateful mission has proved to be a saviour for her, and has encouraged her not to give up. It was a conversation she had with him that has given her the idea to request a transfer to Istin. Little does she know that he isn’t just travelling with with - he’s requested a transfer too.
