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:
  • This young woman stands a modest five foot with eight inches to spare, solidly-built from a lifetime of traversing the Shattersky Mountain crags and valleys. Her straight auburn has been shortened upon being recognized as an adult to mid-shoulder length and kept in an elaborate braid while on the hunt, allowed to fly free otherwise and often streaked through with the dye of Black Apricorns. She has a somewhat narrow nose from generations of living in the high altitude of the Shattersky. Her eyes are normally a flecked mass of hazel, however in times of elevated emotion such as anger the shades shifts to a vibrant amber hue to stand out even more against her pale skin despite the occasional cloud of freckles.
  • Her more casual attire is a brown Stantler-hide tunic and pants fastened by a thick leather belt, her arms bare and simple tan boots cover her feet. One of the few possessions from her old life is a woolly cloak made from the skin of a Piloswine during her first true hunt, the hem embroidered with her family's lineage as a gift from her mother and younger brother. She will sometimes set wooden beads into her braids during these few peaceful days, as well as a single earring sculpted from a sliver of Donphan tusk.
  • She adopted a separate uniform for taking up the mantle of Guardian Scout, consisting primarily of black boots, a hooded grey cloak and tunic, a black cloth face-mask, grey pants and her crafted leather bracers. The right bracer is embroidered with twisting vines covered in open flowers, while the left that holds her bow is stitched as though it were a grained piece of tree bark.
  • As with all of her people, Gwyn's skin displays several tattoos of her life thus far. On her left wrist are several arrows seated side by side, each representing a successful hunt of either beast or enemy. Between her shoulder blades is a Vegisir, or runic compass, as a prayer placed upon her by her mother so that she be guided and protected even when the path is not known. In the center of her forehead is an elaborately drawn arrowhead pointing upward, comprised of a solid border and intricate lines throughout. Her final tattoo is of the Great Tree inked in multiple colors, embossed onto her right thigh.
Distinguishing Features:
  • Celtic Welsh accent, can speak roughly in the common tongue.
  • Multiple skin tattoos.
  • Constantly watching the movements of those around her.
Overall Personality:
  • Prefers being outside to being confined indoors and is vigilant to the point of paranoia, especially when in urban settings. Even when growing up in the mountains her eyes would often wander to the stars above, or the wind-swept terrain beyond their current campsite. Becomes fidgety and irritable if cooped up for too long and absolutely abhors the thought of being forced into any sort of bonds of capture. Should this occur she would more than likely alternate between morbid depression, and feral rage.
  • Short-tempered, easily offended by non-Ti Deinei (Woadarch) and the majority of people she meets. She sees the attitudes of the common Harperian towards her as a sign of ignorance on their part, especially when they react as though she were a mere savage ready to take their heads if they so much as greet her. While she understands that her ink records and archer's eye are taken as unnerving it does little to calm her mind when they go out of their way to act on the stereotypes. Has a slightly longer fuse for her own people and any Pokemon companions she may pick up along the way, but that same fuse will be easily lit more often than not.
  • Deeply loyal to her family, even her little brother whom she threatens to push off a cliff at least twice a week. Trust and loyalty go hand in hand she believes, and is standoffish at first to most. It takes a very long time for her to trust anyone, even her own Pokemon companions. This is not to say she does not have a softer spot in her armor but this is rarely, if ever, seen outside of her clan. Once her loyalty is earned through time and deed, it is nigh unbreakable and forever barred once it is. The idea of second chances is not one she exercises without seeing a good reason, first.
  • Emotionally distant and wary of strangers, she will not hesitate to try and break fingers should someone attempt to touch her. She works better on her own and is distinctly uncomfortable around others, feeling she can move swifter and more silently when it's just her own feet padding through the brush. Her eyes are constantly shifting about in the presence of others and keeps her bow within reach at all times, even if only a few arrowheads someone get too close. Physical contact is all but guaranteed to put her on edge and should someone deliberately attempt to put their hands on her, they may wake up with a fresh notch in one ear.
History:
    Gwyn's first steps were on snow covered ground high within the Shattersky Range north of Istin, watched over by her parents and their clan. Her father Mihangel was a skilled Fletcher and hunter, constantly testing variants in feather arrangement and different arrowhead materials and these crafts were always watched with fascination by Gwyn's hazel eyes. Her mother Honovi (Strong Deer), along with her Sawsbuck companion, taught her and the other youths of the Clan how to make use of the land's gifts and avoid squandering these blessing at all costs.

    As with many of her people she was set to task the moment she was able, at first helping with weaving of baskets and packing up camp when it was time to move on. While attempts were made to learn the ways of making clothing, Gwyn found a particular penchant for turning the needle towards repairing armor and setting traps for prey. Otherwise her early training consisted of helping to nurse the injured and sick, and gather fruits and nuts while the older hunters took to gathering meat. Life was anything but easy but to her it was home, and her mind often wandered to the tall peaks looming overhead, almost in challenge of their strength.

    As time went on it became clear that Gwyn's sights were on joining the hunting parties of the Clan, and even began piecing together crude armor from leather scraps left for her by the leather-workers. When her father's Dartrix evolved into a Decidueye while defending her from a trio of angy Murkrow it was taken as a sign, and she was fostered in the way of arrow-craft and of bringing down dangerous game alongside her brethren. Her mother guided her in the basics of finding clean water, setting a fire, knowing which plants could be eaten or used for their poison and protecting herself from the elements while her father showed her how to turn the most unlikely of materials into a usable projectile, and how to use every part of a kill to avoid waste and incurring the wrath of their Patron Raikou.

    On the eve of her fifteenth birthday her brother Gwawl was born, and marked the time for her to help feed her family more directly. With the blessing of the Druidess she was granted to join the hunt with her fellow teenagers, overseen by an elder and a heavily-scarred Sandslash. The hunt was treacherous as the snows began to blow heavily and left the land scarce of game, nearly exhausting their provisions before a clear set of tracks was found leading into a narrow valley. They eventually cornered the wild Piloswine in a small rocky opening and nearly paid with their lives when it tried to bring the mountain down atop their heads. While another Clan member named Wakeshi openly boasted that this would be his kill, his Charmander ended up frozen and had to be recalled shortly after. They did manage to do some damage however, and Gwyn made use of the opportunity to empty her quiver into the beast's hide. The kill was cleaned and harvested on the spot with Gwyn taking the fur for a cloak as per dealing the finishing blow, something Wakeshi did not appreciate in the least.

    Time passed with more comfort and purpose for her now that she had answered he calling within the Clan, which of course meant that it was not to last. Gwyn had reached the skill to begin teaching the youngest how to recognize certain tracks when Wakeshi offered her a challenge. A hunt between the two of them with the greatest beast brought in marking the victor, to which he pledged his own bracers crafted from the tail of the same Charizard from which his father had gifted him his Charmander. Gwyn in return pledged her elaborately carved quiver of hearty pinewood and carved with flowering vines, several leather pouches sewn upon its length. Over the course of an afternoon they eventually came across an Ursaring as it drank from one of the thawing rivers and made to take it by surprise. Wakeshi's Torch, now a Charmeleon, was able to strike with a gout of flame before it turned and charged them on all fours. Gwyn managed to pepper it with arrows to drive it off before they were killed but not before her bow was destroyed and the Charmelon severely hurt, forcing them to return empty-handed. They were both heavily reprimanded for being so foolish but it was Gwyn's own sense of failure that dragged her down. She felt that she should have been able to handle the situation better, and certainly without the loss of her weapon. She had used what she knew and was still bested, and that was something she was going to change.

    Gwawl was accepted as an apprentice to the Druidess a few months later upon receiving a Phantump as his companion, and seemed as good a time as any to deliver the news amid the aftermath of the blessed occasion. Despite a few objections she was ultimately allowed to travel on her own with her family's blessing once her Vegisir tattoo was placed upon her skin, and being given a pouch of knapped arrowheads by her father. It was that summer that Raikou's roar played a part once again as while testing a bow she had been carving the arrow went wide, landing into a man's shoulder with a cry of pain. The man was a bandit who had been attempting to rob a group travelers returning home to Istin, and turned to the woman with a shout when she emerged from the treeline. The distraction was all that was needed for the Skarmory accompanying the group to loose a brilliant Flash, flaring the area and giving Gwyn the belief that the Great Bird had come to take her soul back to the Tree. The travelers themselves believed at first that she was part of a group of attacking 'savages' until they saw that the fletching of her arrows carried matched that of the one currently keeping the bandit from raising his arm. The Handler of the Skarmory brought the bandit into custody and introduced herself as a Guardian Lieutenant, remarking once introductions were made that they had not noticed her presence until the arrow had landed. Everything from that point slowly fell into place until the day came to take her oath, and strive to never let herself be overwhelmed again.
