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.

Character: Joscelin Waters
user posted image

Full Name: Joscelin 'Joss' Waters (also called Bluebird by Juliana)
Age: 30
Gender: male
Sexuality: heterosexual

Class: Rogue
Starting City: Fough Place
Patron or Trick Lord: n/a
Notches: Lv.01 [ 1.2 / 5 ]
Total Level: Lv.02 [ 2.2 / 5 ]
Condition: Fine
Aptitudes


Overall Appearance:
    Joscelin stands shy of 5’7”, and is on the slim side. He is well proportioned, not overly muscular, but neither lanky. His active lifestyle has kept him fit and healthy, and over the years he has built up physical endurance through his travels. Naturally, due to this, and the drawbacks that come with his past profession, he does carry a few scars, the most noticeable being scarring on his right forearm from a mightyena bite that was crudely cauterised and then treated. He tends to keep it covered when he’s travelling, as even a light shirt protects his skin a little from the elements, but it is not something he is conscious of, and forgets that it’s there unless someone asks about it.

    Possessing a square shaped face framed with dark curly hair and blue eyes, he has drawn attention from young ladies before – especially when he reverts to his serious business face, or even his scowl. In the past, at times, he was quite flattered by this, but these days he has little interest when it comes to romance. He dresses practically, favouring darker greys, greens and browns, but doesn’t minder lighter clothing with a dash more colour when he’s not out in the wilds. His hair is kept at a manageable length – usually falling just over his collar. Very rarely does he tie it up. He can often be seen with a small braid on the left side of his tangled mane of hair – courtesy of Jules. He also likes to be neat

    Among crowds, Joscelin is a little uncomfortable, and it’s not hard to tell, what with him stumbling over his words if asked a question or greeted. But around a fewer number of strangers, he seems more sure of himself, though settles into a stoic silence that is not easily dispelled. It’s when he’s with just in the presence of one or two people that he’s even just a little familiar with, that’s when he opens up a little more. Unless he knows someone really well and feels comfortable and secure with them, he won’t discuss any aspect of his livelihood with them, for fear of the guards and the fear of being judged. He throws up walls, so to speak, in order to protect himself, and this often makes him appear standoffish or stern, and sometimes is enough to keep people away.

    He has a few little quirks that he’s been teased for in the past (relentlessly by his father-figure), the first and foremost of these being the dimple in his chin. He dislikes standing still, and attributes this to his rather nomadic lifestyle. But Symon is convinced that it’s just a Joscelin thing, claiming that he ‘hopped around like a bird’ when they first met. Apparently he still does. In this one thing Jules, who always has his back, agrees. The only nonessential item he never parts with is a large, polished mightyena tooth that is bound to a cord that he never removes from around his neck.
Distinguishing Features:
  • scarring on right forearm
  • large mightyena tooth hanging on a leather cord around his neck
Overall Personality:
    The years he’s spent hunting and trapping pokemon have caught up to him, emotionally and mentally – he is unable to brush off the consequences of his actions as easily as another might. He feels deeply, and has long questioned the path he has walked for over twenty years. The nature of his work is dangerous in itself, but there are other, hidden dangers that Joss has become accustomed to being aware of (such as other wild pokemon moving in when he’s cornering his target, other poachers protecting their turf and guardians trying to put a stop to poaching). Because of this he has a definite tendency towards flight, and gets uncomfortable being in the same place for very long, especially smaller spaces closed off from the sky and fresh air.

    He also feels uncomfortable in large crowds, given his inherent nervousness at being recognised (somehow) as a poacher, but also because he has spent a good number of years in naturally isolated places. He isn’t as fidgety around smaller groups, but isn’t an overly extroverted person, and given that Symon drilled into him that he should never talk much about himself or what he does, he’s not the best conversationalist. He’s quite a perceptive individual though –by nurture and by nature, and while his speciality lies in tracking pokemon in the wild, he does pick up small things in cities and among people too.

    The first thing one may notice about Joscelin waters is that he is very much a private person. He is perfectly happy with his own company (but equally so in the company of good friends), and, along with his natural state of stillness comes a strange mixture of loss and longing. As much as he fears being captured by guardians and imprisoned (or punished in whichever way is deemed fitting), his greatest fear lies in his greatest weakness. He fears losing himself, and becoming someone worse than he already thinks he is. He is slow to forgive, especially when it comes to forgiving himself, and really struggles at times with what he’s done and what he’s helped Symon do.

    He is a dreamer though, and he hopes for a better life for Juliana, at least, if not himself. Joscelin is, at his core, a very compassionate individual, who has held fast to what little honour he has. As he’s grown, there have been times when he’s gone against Symon, because if there is one thing that is strong about him, it is his moral compass. He still has standards, and draws lines that he won’t cross, despite the crooked nature of his way of living. More than anything, he wants a stable foundation on which to build a better future, and this will drive him to do what he knows is right, no matter his fears.

    Joscelin has learned a lot of wisdom from Symon and a few others, and does his best to stick by their words that he has committed to memory. Never look back (he can’t help himself, sometimes), rely on yourself, have patience, take time to be, don’t waste time pretending, forgive others and yourself, difficulties show you who you are, and never give up on something you want, or those you love. In time, he’ll do his best to teach Juliana these important life lessons, but he’s proud to acknowledge that she’s doing a pretty fine job by herself.

How did you find us?
Anything Else:Retiring Sera for this guy. I took the opportunity to start his travels off/focus his sample on him coming out of the forest and into the great big mess that is the Schism, as I plan on jumping right into things with him, and intend to keep his travels up to date with the condition of the region as a whole. I hope that’s okay. If not, I’d be more than happy to edit my post!

One last thing, I’d like to transfer Aisling the kecleon (the kecleon mentioned in his sample/history) as well as the fighting type move tutor coupon from Sera to Joss, as long as these comply with the rules. I’m not 100% sure on the value of tutor coupons? If this exceeds the allowed amount, I’ll be happy to take the allotted amount of gold I can transfer instead. Thanks so much!

(And… sorry his history is so long… I just had a lot I wanted to fit in there… And sorry for messing the coding up a little. I didn't want to try fix it once it was readable because I was afraid I'd make it worse...)
