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:
    Emily is a tall, lithe woman who stands 5'4'. Despite her skinny, frailness she is muscular like anyone who's been living on the own in the wild. She has tan, dark skin with rough hands and feet covered in callouses. She has a little acne on her face though it's not uncommon for her face to be smeared with dirt. She has large eyes with large pupils and a thin mouth. Her hair is cropped short, almost in the style of a man.

    Emily usually wears the ragged clothing of the poor. Her clothes have holes and rips in them as she is too poor to afford better or even new clothes. Her clothes don't provide much protection as it's not uncommon for her skin to have scratches along her legs and arms from running through thornbushes and the like. She tends to hold herself with confidence and moves in a graceful, quick way.
Distinguishing Features:
Overall Personality:
    Emily is very competitive and never likes to lose and finds it hard to ever turn down a challenge. Despite her competitive spirit, she tends to act like a scared kid, avoiding people at all costs and thinking that not only is everyone out to get her but that the world itself is out to get her. She has a pessimistic outlook on the world, knowing the truth about how ugly it can be. She doesn't trust people and can be cautious when it comes to putting herself in new situations. She doesn't like trying new things and when presented with anything unfamiliar she finds herself becoming nervous and hostile.

    Emily also knows how to blend in a crowd and make herself look completely unnoticeable. She is wary of all strangers, especially those that take notice of her or talk to her, having a fear of strangers or anyone new. If you were to ask her, Emily will bravely say she fears nothing, but in reality, she finds herself afraid of the world itself, especially when encountering anything foreign or new. Despite all this, Emily can be extremely loyal and protective of those she trusts and considers family, afraid of losing them like she lost her real family.

    Whenever Emily grows to trust anyone she can be kind and generous and will share with them whatever she has. She tends to have a soft voice and act carefully around anyone she trusts, afraid that if she even raises her voice slightly they'll disappear as if they were never there. It is because of this quiet, fearful disposition, that most people don't take notice of her and won't ever give her a second glance. She is very shy and tends to hide in the shadows, grateful that no one ever gives her a passing look, seeing her as just another beggar kid among many.
History:
    Emily grew up in a poor family, living on a farm, helping to tend to the crops. She had two siblings, both brothers who she was often competitive with, trying to outdo them in farm work among other chores. Her oldest brother was the Pokemon expert in the family, having owned three of his own Pokemon. Any Pokemon on the farm wasn't considered owned by anyone in the family personally, and just apart of the farm. They were there for profit, nothing else.

    Her parents never offered Emily any education, she went from being a baby to a work around the house, learning how to do the daily chores. She started by doing small tasks to help out when she six. By the time she was ten she had progressed to helping out in the fields, tending to the crops. Occasionally she even got to do the fun jobs like tending to the Pokemon. It was when she turned 14, her older brother left the farm to see what was out there, unsatisfied with the simple, farm life. Emily missed her older brother, hoping he would return and tell her all about her travels. For the most part, she lived a happy, sheltered life without pain or misery. When her brother finally returned, everyone was happy and were celebrating his return, glad to have him back. It was a few weeks after that, the sickness hit and the celebration ended...

    When Emily turned sixteen, it started with the sickness. Her mother fell deathly ill. Emily did all she could to help, but being the youngest of three siblings and her parents only daughter, she was told to stay away for fear of her catching the same sickness. It wasn't long before her older brother caught the same sickness. A few days after that, Emily's mother died from the disease. And in a few more days, both her younger brother and father (who had just recently gotten sick as well) would die. Emily was spared when her father refused to let Emily tend to them, having her drop food and water in the room that held the sick before telling her to leave. He would not let his only daughter and youngest child die with them as well.

    Emily, distraught and grieving over the quick death of her family, fled their farm and moved to the woods. She didn't know what to do or even how to survive. For days she starved, finding food as she went along but unable to catch any meat. She only ate and fed off the occasional berries she found or any farms she raided (though she only did that in most dire need). She constantly found herself on the lookout for weapons from the people she watched pass by, though she hid and kept out of their way. She needed something to kill with if she had any hope of learning how to hunt and survive.

    One day, when her hiding failed to be enough, she was caught and the man tried to rape her. She screamed loudly and managed to break away and tear off through the woods. The man tried to follow her, but Emily knew the woods better and as she ran, she knew exactly where to run to and managed to trick her attacker into one area of the woods where the ground sloped sharply into a hill, spending him stumbling down the rocky and treacherous hill. Emily managed to pick her way carefully down and, not being able to bring herself to kill anyone, she took the only weapon on his person, a short bow. It was that day, she knew for certain she couldn't trust anyone and would take every measure to keep her presence hidden.

    Every day Emily would practice with the bow, first finding it hard to pull the string back and even fire one arrow. But over time, she became stronger and now finding it difficult to aim and found herself always missing her target by a lot. Over time she honed her skills, continuing to survive off berries, the only meat she managed to eat was the rare livestock she managed to raid. Eventually, she missed the target only by a few inches. She attempted to hunt for herself only to find it was much harder and soon found no matter what she did, it was a waste of her time. Starving and in desperate need for money, she noticed a passerby on the road through the woods. She stepped out in front of the handler, holding her bow in a proper and intimidating way. Though she didn't have accurate precision, she had good enough aim to at least look like she would hit her target if she fired an arrow. She didn't want or intend to kill him, she just hoped she could intimidate and scare him into giving her his possessions and supplies. She took only what she needed, not willing to take everything of his and leave him with nothing.

    She was going through all she had acquired, eating the food quickly, having not eaten for days and not knowing when she would eat again. A Pokemon then timidly moved into her little clearing, starving as well. Emily couldn't help taking pity on it, know how bad hunger felt and so invited it over, offering to share her food. It came over cautiously, afraid Emily would attack, so Emily kept throwing over pieces of her food until it sidled closer and they began to eat together. It was that day forward, Emily would never find herself alone again and she would never want to be alone again, fearing it more than anything. For weeks they scavenged for food, traveling from place to place, and raiding farms or travelers passing through their location. The Pokemon helped to add to her intimidation and scare people into giving her food and money. Emily was careful though and kept from stealing from those who needed what they had like Emily did. Whenever Emily robbed people of their money, she would keep it, knowing she would need it for hard winter that was quickly closing in...
