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.

Name: Priestess Catrain LeRoux
Age: 26

Balican Path: Water/Ice
Chosen God(s): Articuno and Kyogre

Location: Istin City
Description: Priestess Catrain LeRoux, born and raised in Istin, has been a Balican all of her life. Originally an orphan, she was adopted and raised by a Balican priest and groomed to be his successor. As such she obtained her rank early in life, around the age of 20, and has been a dedicated servant of her Path ever since. Those who know her claim that Catrain has an almost uncanny connection to the region's wild bird Pokemon, although this could easily be attributed to her innate understanding of Pokemon nature rather than any sort of mystical bond. Her own Pokemon are unswervingly loyal, and her Volcarona seems rather at home among the icy mountains despite its typing.

Priestess Catrain only leaves Istin to take vigils on the sea, a self-imposed regimen to help her "commune" with Kyogre. She seems to thrive in Istin's cold (indeed, one of her complaints about her sea travel is the heat) and has a thorough knowledge of the mountainside labyrinth, although she refuses to share the information with any who ask. She keeps to herself, sparing kind words in passing, but prefers the solitude of her small house. The only people who see a lot of her are the Balicans in her city.

Name: Priest Jacob Zantorian
Age: 43

user posted image

Balican Path: Fire
Chosen God(s): Entei

Location: Navdia Crater
Description: Jacob Zantorian is a Balican priest in the loosest sense of the term. A blacksmith like his father, Jacob turned to the god of the volcano simply because it made sense to do so. He is a very casual, laid-back man and an incredibly talented jewelry maker, taking advantage of the city's trade and sometimes mining his own gems from the surrounding land. There are some who claim he can do so because of his "favor with Entei," but Jacob dismisses these claims and instead attributes his skill to a life of blacksmithing and his knowledge of the area. His work is very popular with Navdia's upper crust, for he specializes in opals that he digs up himself, and all manner of the beautiful stone (including the rare black and fire opals) can be found in his shop, set as centerpieces for rings, necklaces, and other jewelry. Even his wife, a talented seamstress, will incorporate small opals in the dresses she makes.

For all Jacob is an easy-going man, he has a fist of iron and will bring it down hard on thieves (as one can imagine, the nature of his business brings them around often). The priest's Luxray is specifically trained to protect the merchandise from thieves, and the lion does so well at his job that most of Navdia's rogues have given up trying to swipe opals. Jacob's passion lies more with his trade than his faith; he'll complain about having to lead rituals or train acolytes, though it's hard to tell whether he's serious or just giving others a hard time.

Name: Priest Alistair Lodbrok
Age: 71

Balican Path: Earth
Chosen God(s): Celebi

Location: Fough Place
Description: Alistair Lodbrok's cabin is located northwest of Fough Place, set so deep in the forest that it's nearly impossible to get to by land and incredibly hard to spot by air. This is just how he likes it, for the old priest is a hermit with little patience for humans. He's known in the city for his eccentric ways and his foul temper; even other Balicans avoid him if they can find another priest. The elderly man uses his land to grow and cultivate the herbs and plants used in medicines. He keeps Combees and will even rehabilitate injured/sick wild Pokemon; he connects with animals far easier than with people. He usually ships his products to Helena D'incourt, a priestess in Dedrius and one of the few humans he can stand, and in turn Helena crafts various potions and salves to be sold. The younger woman will even deliver groceries and supplies to Alistair, further enabling his hermit lifestyle.

The old priest is a deeply reverent man and takes his dedication to Celebi quite seriously. He is a vigorous protester against environmental degradation (it's the only reason he doesn't live outside Dedrius) and will go as far as rallying his Pokemon to fight anything deemed a threat against nature. The law finds him aggravating; more often than not, civilians take his side.

As of this travels, a female Alolan Ninetales and her male offspring (an Alolan Vulpix) are staying on Lodbrok's property. Although the two Pokemon are wary of the man and do not follow his orders, it seems that the icy ninetales is very taken with Alistair's ninetales, and vice versa.

Name: Priestess Helena D'incourt
Age: 32

Balican Path: Air
Chosen God(s): Latios and Latias

Location: Dedrius
Description: Helena is a friendly, lively woman, and well-liked by the people of Dedrius. Even those who find her faith outlandish or heretic still praise her skills as a healer. She has an almost unrivaled knowledge of human (and Pokemon) anatomy and function, and she can concoct just about any medicine if given the right ingredients. Most of her supplies are produced by Alistair Lodbrok in Fough Place and delivered by the old man's Braviary, although some speculate that the two priests know the forest between the cities so well that they can traverse it in mere days to reach one another. Many of the city's ill come to Helena and her team for care, and just as many call on her to help Pokemon, captured or wild.

Even though the priestess follows the path of Air, she is very involved with local politics involving environmental care. Helena has so many supporters, thanks to her amiable nature, that she can easily get a huge backing if she wants to protest a new logging regimen or endorse a tourist venture into the wetlands; as such, her opinion on these matters is very rarely ignored. She takes it upon herself to keep a balance between humanity and nature, although sometimes she feels so overwhelmed that she'll take a few days' vacation into the woods.

Name: Priest Ezra Everstone
Age: 25

user posted image

Balican Path: Lightning
Chosen God(s): Zekrom

Location: Cape Augustine
Description: Ezra Everstone borders so closely to lawlessness that he can barely claim Balican priesthood, and many speculate that he only does so as a cover for his true activities. Nonetheless, this renowned party boy- a social butterfly if there ever was one- keeps to the rules of his faith. He's a honed thief when no one is looking, sure, but he steals only from those who can afford it and he uses his money to support himself- although he stretches the word "support" liberally to include nightly outings and parties. Somehow he manages to sell stolen merchandise with none of his rich acquaintances being any the wiser, and Ezra is one of the few unaffiliated rogues in the region with enough coin to afford a fancy house.

The priest is known for his silver tongue and his quick reflexes; speed is an attribute reflected in his team, and in battle both he and his Pokemon are forces to be reckoned with. He dedicates most of his earnings to fancy clothes, expensive baubles, and loose women. Those closest to him, though, know that Ezra's extravagant lifestyle is all a front, an attempt to attract the attention of the one thing he wants- the priestess Yu-jie. So far, though, the exotic Balican woman has completely ignored Ezra's advances, prompting the young man to reach all new heights in his lavish living. Many Balicans question Ezra's purity as a priest considering his fondness for needless wealth.

Name: Priestess Pei Yu-jie
Age: 22

Balican Path: Mind
Chosen God(s): Azelf, Mesprit, Uxie

Location: Seaway City
Description: Priestess Pei Yu-jie is an enigma, a mystery, and paired with her exotic beauty she is often the center of mens' desires. No one knows exactly where she came from or how she came to be a priestess so young- indeed, she's the youngest the faith has seen yet- just that she appeared out of nowhere with an Espeon at her side and a claim to Balican priesthood. The other priests have at least been able to confirm her claims, and the quiet Yu-jie willingly trains others in the faith as well as leading group rituals.

The young woman lives well, dressing in silks and fine jewels, and it's clear that her income stems from rich men looking to claim her as a mistress. None have succeeded, but so many try that Yu-jie could support herself for the rest of her life on the expensive gifts they give her. Yet she's not greedy, nor does she seem to care whether she's rich or not, and excess coin is often donated to the poor and needy. She allows herself to live on the charity of hopeful benefactors simply because it's easier than constantly fighting the attention, but otherwise she keeps to herself and does what she wants. It's considered an honor to have the elusive, headstrong young woman attend a public function, for she rarely does so even when invited.
