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:
    Margery stands at an average 5’ 1” and weighs in at a stable 112 lbs. that she wears on a thin boyish body frame. Her hips are angular and she is small-chested, and her muscles are toned from a long childhood of hard field work. Her skin over the years has transitioned from a fair pale to a warm brown. Her hands feature long fingers with well-worn callouses, and her feet are relatively large.

    Margery has plain dark blonde hair that she keeps cut to waist-length, and for the most part is always braided back. She keeps no bangs because they tend to get in the way, but some of the hairs on the sides of her face grow slow and wispy, and so there are always some framing pieces that won’t stay tied away. Her oval face includes a straight nose and piercing, serious blue eyes. Though her lips aren’t thin, they don’t attract much attention due to the fact that the color is only a minute shade difference from her actual skin tone.

    In terms of clothing, Margery prefers a loose tunic over a sturdy long sleeve, as well as durable pants and long boots. She is very much a ‘function over form’ individual and defaults to clothes that will hold up to hard use and long exposure to the elements. On hot days, she’ll remove the tunic and roll up her sleeves, but in general is pretty anal about keeping her arms covered. Natural browns and greys are the extent of color variation in her wardrobe.
Distinguishing Features:
  • Margery broke her nose as a child during swordplay with her older brother. It didn’t heal perfectly straight and there is a small bump midway down where the bone fractured.
Overall Personality:
    Margery’s most defining feature is her seriousness. Because of her no-nonsense upbringing, she has little patience for frivolity or carefree behavior. She believes that hard work is the basis for a long, fruitful life and has no issue putting in long hours to pursue a desired outcome. Her disapproval for laziness and cutting corners borders is especially abrasive to people, and she pulls no punches when expressing her distaste for someone else’s sloth behavior. This trait often progresses to the point of skipping obvious easy routes in order to ‘prove’ her dedication to an end goal. In addition to this, she is highly disciplined and is dedicated to physical and mental self-betterment.

    Her greatest downfall is her testy temper. Though she is patient with impersonal matters, Margery becomes incredibly competitive with other people – the more practice she has in whatever she is doing, the more spectacular her explosion when losing. She burns hot with passion, and the resulting flame has come back to burn her in the past. A lot of the anger comes from a hubris that she does not recognize in herself – in a controlled state of mind Margery tries to be humble, but in the heat of battle can become sloppy due to underestimating her opponent.

    Despite all this, she shows a great deal of respect for the people, Pokemon and others around her. Her Salt-of-the-Earth childhood taught her to appreciate the intrinsic value in all things, and she is highly appreciative of the things she is given or afforded. She treats all of her possessions with meticulous care and is very specific about training and health regimens for her Pokemon and herself. Margery does not worry about things like physical appearance or social niceties (other than due respect to nobility and superiors) but focuses on living a more fulfilling and long life in general.
History:
    Margery grew up in a family of four on a small Miltank farm. She always modeled her behavior after her mother, who was a strong and no-nonsense woman who held no handicaps for her young daughter merely due to her gender. She was required to begin pulling weight in terms of farm work from six years old, and was often held to the same standards as her brother two years her senior.

    She embraced her chores with open arms. Long hours were spent tending to the cows – milking, washing, feeding and watering, herding, and cleaning pens. Every task was done with the utmost care, and with the shining beacon of her parents’ praise in mind.

    Her brother was her polar opposite – lax, animated and colorful, he would often shirk his work in favor of exploration and relaxation, much to her chagrin. Her outright anger at his behavior festered alongside a dash of creeping jealousy that tainted the roots of their relationship. Though their father was a loving man who embraced his children with his whole heart, he would subconsciously push Margery’s brother harder – a push that she herself was starving for, and that she did not believe her brother had earned or deserved.

    Her exploration in swordplay began at age seven, after she, in a fit of desperation to prove herself, dragged her father’s deteriorated and heavy short sword to his morning meditation. Her father was a long-since retired soldier, though he still kept sharp from daily training as a way to maintain his stamina and balance. Seeing the newfound desire to learn in his children, from that day forth he began to teach them how to defend themselves. Margery’s brother was lackadaisical and frequently late, sometimes even missing sessions altogether, but she herself never missed a single one. Her training quickly progressed from basic stances and strength training to advanced dives and parrying and beyond. She eventually transitioned into joining her father before sessions in his meditation, seeing the innate importance of a sound mind in this pursuit of the body. Together they worked; she was knocked to the ground time and time again, bruised, her nose shattered once, tired hours lost as she crawled in bed early every night, sore and dreading the sunrise and what it brought. After a few dedicated years Margery became highly skilled for her young age.

    Despite her love of combat, Margery never envisioned herself a soldier until the year she turned sixteen. Her brother grew even more distant that year and began getting in increasing amounts of trouble. Behaviorally, he became uninterested in his home life and embodied a coldness that replaced the child-like life that had been in him before. A sporadic chain of criminal acts followed; he progressed from petty theft, to violence in the streets, to outright vandalism and flagrant disorderly conduct. The shame on their parents’ faces as their previously light-hearted son was carted home once again, spitting profanities and with an unfamiliar hate burning in his eyes, was not lost on Margery; eventually, he was warned that any subsequent offences would warrant jail time. On the eve of his birthday he woke Margery from her sleep with a gentle kiss to the forehead – he had always held a large part of his heart aside for his rigid sister – and she opened her eyes to catch the silhouette of him slipping out her open window and into the night. She tried to follow, but was unsuccessful. In the morning her parents spoke with local authorities, but he never turned up.

    Since then, Margery has heard whispers on the wind that he had joined a band of vigilantes, but has not seen him since. Her search for him has not ceased, if only to bring back the light in her parents’ hearts - though her disapproval of his choices left a permanent bad taste in her mouth. Life continued as it had to, but her parents became, and remain, hardened shells of their former selves.

    Margery has since resolved to join the Guard, following in her father’s footsteps, if only to give him a point of pride amidst his deep sadness and confusion.
