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.

Total Level: Lv.01 [ .6 / 5 ]
Condition: Fine
Aptitudes


Overall Appearance:
    Her hair is a ragged thing. It's hard to imagine that her brown locks were once long and well taken care of. It looks as if someone hacked most of the hair off with a knife or a dagger or some other kind of blade. Which isn't that far off, truth be told. The skin on her hands is tough, the result of taking on all kinds of jobs for the townsfolk. Her skin is tan, and while it once struck her as odd she now cannot recall a time before it was so.

    She's got a thin build, but she has her fair share of muscle. Her height is around average, maybe an inch or so taller than average. Her face has features that some might refer to as aristocratic. Her face has a sharp look to it, with a delicate looking bone structure, with a nose that's a tad bit pointy and she has thin eyebrows. Her lips are also fairly thin and due to her habit of biting her lip when thinking, she's always regrowing that top layer of skin there.
Distinguishing Features:
  • Plain, no particular distinguishing features.
Overall Personality:
    Nora certainly can be polite. She gets how manners work and all that fun stuff, and how etiquette dictates things to be. That said, she doesn't care in the slightest. Nora is direct and demands others be frank with her in return. She prefers bluntness over stretching things out needlessly. She holds true to her words, and is very liable to punch people in the face if they break a bargain with her. It has happened before and will likely happen again. She doesn't put up with being cheated, because she cannot afford to do so. Nora's a fierce gal with a strong set of morals, and she thinks little of those that lack such.

    She's not much of a people person, but neither does she like to be alone. The presence of other human beings grates on her nerves, and prolonged exposure results in her already not particularly lengthy fuse shortening further. It doesn't take much to tick her off. However, it's still preferable to the alternative. Being alone gives her time to reflect on things, and that's about the last thing that she wants to do.

    Nora isn't the kind of person that lets others know when she's hurting. When she can afford to, and even sometimes when she can't, she hides her pain away. She tells herself that she does so in order not to burden others, but buried beneath all that is the fear that even if others did know they still wouldn't care.

    Folks that knew both of her parents tend to compare her to her mother. Sometimes she wishes they'd compare her to her father instead, and she hates herself for the thought.
History:
    Nora would consider her childhood a happy one. She was loved by her parents, and in turn she adored them with every fiber of her being. Both of her parents were Guardians, devoted to their duty to the people. Her fondest memories are of when her parents were between missions, and they were both around. It was much more common for Nora to spend time with one of her parents while the other was away, making time with both her mother and father precious.

    What she remembers most about her father was the way that he always seemed so happy to simply be alive. He smiled and laughed so very often, and she can hardly recall anytimes when he wasn't happy. Sometimes she wonders if he was simply too skilled at hiding what he felt for her young self to pick up on it. While she will never truly know, she hopes that her father really was as he seemed to her then, a laughing man gazing up at the stars.

    Her mother was in every way her father's opposite. While her father was a joyful man with a delicate, nearly aristocratic appearance, her mother was all rough-looking and scarred and rarely laughed at all. She was really very serious, and Nora can remember each and every time she smiled, the rarity of the expression making it all the more memorable. Usually, it was an fondly exasperated brought on by Nora's father. Harte, the surname that Nora holds, was from her mother. As far as Nora is aware, her father had no surname. Nora's mother was a tough woman, and it was her that taught Nora how to fight.

    Despite their differences, it was clear as day that both her parents loved each other and their daughter.

    Nora remembers her father as smiles and laughter, as stars and word games, but none of that is what first comes to mind at the thought of him. What she thinks of instead is the way her always strong mother cried after hearing news of his death.

    After her father's death, her mother was distant in a way that she never had been. She began leaving for longer and longer trips, and Nora was alone except for a pokemon left behind to guard her. Nora lived off of what she could get from the nearby town, oftentimes taking on various odd jobs for the townsfolk. Her mother didn't notice how her increasingly ragged her daughter looked each time she visited, an occurrence that became less and less frequent. Nora did her best to make sure of that. Her mother was upset enough as it was, and Nora didn't want to add to her worries. At least, that was what Nora told herself.

    Except, eventually, her mother didn't come back. Nora didn't even notice at first, far too used to her mother's absence. It was a slow realization that her mind did its best to avoid. It was inevitable, however.

    Nora couldn't wait endlessly. She didn't even know what she was waiting for. But she couldn't stand anymore of it. She left, sold the pokemon her mother had left, and bought what she'd need to become a handler.
