Quick Updates

Weather Conditions

Season: Summer

The onset of the Summer season has led to a swarming of Fire-, Electric-, and Bug-types, overtaking most populations in the Region. In their place, Water- and Grass-types have retreated to the shade and to cooler areas, while Ice-types have all but vanished. The rising temperatures has also led to the annual thaw of the infamously cold Istin City, though it remains the coldest.

Character: Tobias Middelton
Portrait courtesy of Jose

Full Name: Tobias Jeremiah Middelton
Age: 32
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Heterosexual

Class: Rogue
Starting City: Seaway
Patron or Trick Lord: ---
Notches: Lv.06 [ 5 / 10 ]
Condition: Fine

Overall Appearance:
    Toby is pretty tall and reasonably fit as would be appropriate for an upper-class young man to sustain throughout his life. He's very pale because he comes from a family that was quite well off, so he never had to go outside long enough to get tan. Lately, though, he's been boasting a farmer's tan patterned sunburn from his recent upheaval. He has what can only be described as 'emerald' green eyes due to the uncommon brilliance of their colour, and strawberry blonde hair that has recently been given pure, light blonde highlights from sun-bleaching. His hair is scruffy and thin, a little bit shaggy and longer than is considered appropriate.

    He is a man who is accustomed to wearing finery such as brightly-coloured silks and scarves and fine linen pants, so he now struggles to compromise his sense of style for his new budget, leaving him oftentimes penniless and a victim to the sellers in the market thanks to a habit of being loose with his coin. As a result, he almost always wears his now-fading red and gold silk hooded tunic and once-fine and once-white linen trousers, now dust brown. He refuses to wear his armour out of petty narcissism, though he carries it with him.
Distinguishing Features:
  • Faded silks/old fine clothes
  • Bright green eyes
  • Unusually pale
Overall Personality:
    Toby is rather arrogant, still holding the mindset that he is above the general population and they should defer to his will because of it, but essentially kindhearted. He has become much more sarcastic recently, and isn't afraid to rub it in all the wrong places, although usually due to his naivety rather than any true spite or malice. He is often overwhelmed by the depths he has sunk to, and still tries to behave as a noble despite having to hide from Guardians and Handlers alike fairly frequently, no thanks to his paranoia. He has developed a nervous tic, in that his fingers twitch whenever he is considering anything illicit.

    He misses his own pokemon terribly, and despite once having been quite a good handler, he doesn't really know how to start again from scratch because he never had to train his pokemon. That was the servants' job. He is socially awkward, in a bizarre twist of fate that robs him for the hallmark trait of the upper class that would have aided him in his hiding among the masses. He is also squeamish and has been known to faint at the sight of more than a scrape's worth of blood. Despite this, he understands that he might need to use force to defend himself at some point, and purchased a short bow and arrows to ensure that he could be far enough away from whatever gore there might be to keep his head from floating away.
History:
    Toby grew up in a very rich family living in the vicinity of Fough Place in their own villa along the cliffs. They were well known, although not well liked, a fact that young Toby was far, far too late in understanding the depth of. Toby himself, however, was typically welcome in the town thanks to his bright eyed curiosity and general cheerfulness that allowed most of the townspeople to get past the arrogance that came from mountains of gold. He spent all of his childhood years carefree in the villa with occasional trips to Fough for fun, or down to the little scrap of beach at the bottom of the cliffs to play. He was careful always to keep his hood up or to rub the special herb mixtures that the family healer prepared to keep away the sunburn and tan that marked the lower classes, and into his teen years, boasted of his milk-white skin.

    On his tenth birthday, his father gave him his own pokemon team to battle with, and of course the best that money could buy. His very own team held several dragons and other rare pokemon. Toby didn't know that they were so uncommon, however, and much to his parents' chagrin, treated the local rattata and magikarp the same as the bagon that their servants trained for their son. In truth, though he would never admit it, the common pokemon were much friendlier and much less scary than the ones that his family's gold had paid for, and he only ever used his gifted team in battles on the villa for fun.

    As he grew older, Toby became shyer and shyer, staying secluded in his wing for days and weeks at a time, and this ignorant of the turmoil and scandals surrounding his parents outside. He lost the few social skills he possessed, although he retained much of his cheerful disposition. He became very close to the pokemon team that had once frightened him, valuing them more than the servants that took care of them all. His trips down to the town became less and less frequent, and people who cared to whispered about how he was turning into his parents, ever so slowly. On the occasions when he did make the trip, he failed to notice that the townsfolk's attitude toward him had chilled, and that he was beginning to attract the same looks as his parents if not moreso because of his naive nature and arrogance causing him to come off as both stupid and "fake."

    Halfway through his thirty first year, he made his way down to Fough on a regular day, for the first time in a month or two. His shortbow hung on his back with his quiver, as he intended to go for a hunt with his pokemon in Edgewood after his visit. Nothing seemed awry or strange, and he proceeded down to the specialty shop that sold antiques and trinkets and books, a shop that he always went to whenever he went into Fough for a visit. Upon entering, he was met with a grisly scene: the owner of the shop and twoee other people had been shot in various places, and they were all but the owner dead. The owner saw him and shouted as loud as he could for help, but he was beyond healing. Tobias, squeamish Tobias, fainted dead away, knocking his head on a shelf corner and jostling the bow from his back to rest by his hand, where he was discovered an hour later by the Guard, bruised to the head and unable to remember whether or not the murders were actually his fault.

    Toby was immediately framed, without trial, thanks to his family's reputation and the general dislike. His entire team was confiscated, as were all of his worldly possessions, save for the gold in his pockets. Lucky for him, the night guard at the jail took his bribe, and Toby fled, still confused as to what had happened, and horrified with himself. His only thought was to get as far away as he could to begin again, and set a course for the Seaway Islands. Along the way, he saw a (rather poor) sketch of his own face plastered on kiosks under the bold words 'WANTED FOR TRIPLE MURDER,' and an offered sum of four thousand gold. He realized that he would have to be very careful, and finally accepted that he had become an outlaw -- a rogue.
