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.

Character: Jonna Shipston

Full Name: Jonna Sara Shipston
Age: 14
Gender: Female
Sexuality: Hetero

Class: Handler
Starting City: Route 3, southen part. Small village called New Gladestead.
Patron or Trick Lord: N/A
Credits: Lv.11 [ 13.5 / 15 ]
Condition: Fine.
Aptitudes


Overall Appearance:
    Jonna is a short, skinny girl, with few feminine curves. This is mostly due to the poor nutrition while she was growing up. This is also why she isn't very tall, just about 1,5 m, which with her low stature and silent manner, means she is often ignored. Jonnas hair is quite wispy and thin, and supposed to be blond. Usually she doesn't comb her hair much, since it breaks easy. Her eyes are dark blue and her skin is quite pale, because dust and dirt usually kept out the sun rays. After she left her home village, she began bathing more often, which she hadn't found necessary before, as she would just get as soiled again shortly.

    Jonna wears and old brown dress, full of patches (she isn't sure if this is its original color, or if the dirt has worked its way into the fabric, and has become permanent). The dress is a bit too big for her, and the sleeves are constantly getting in the way. Her shoes are a pair of leather boots which actually fits her pretty nicely, and she wears a piece of cloth around her hair, to keep it away from her face. When living at home, Jonna didn't wear any armor, so she finds the sleeveless leather-backed mail shirt quite heavy. Her weapon is an old discarded pitchfork, where the blade has been removed leaving only the wooden staff with a little of the metal still remaining. Both armor and small metal parts of her weapon have rusty spots.

    After traveling with some weavers, Jonna now also has a homewoven and unevenly sewn darkcolored dress, with a very visible pocket on the front.
Distinguishing Features:
  • Skin and bone
  • Wispy and thin hair, held in position by a piece of cloth.
Overall Personality:
    Jonna is a quiet girl who is rather shy around strangers. She has no problem in being in larger groups but she is definitely not the one to take the lead, and she tries to avoid attention. Jonna is not the brave type, and is easly scared, which clashes with her curiosity with all unknown. She is friendly and helpful but pretty naive. If she is asked for help, and can't see that it will hurt anyone, she is glad to offer her assistance. She doesn't have any experience with the world outside her village, and only met new people when some stopped by. However she has been taught Harpers legends and knows how society is built.

    There weren't much smile and laughter in her village, because life was tough. So she really enjoys it, when she can have a good time, but she mostly keeps to herself. On the other hand, that had made her used to hardships, and it doesn't bother her much. She has worked since she was old enough to help, and has the endurance to keep going on for hours witheasier jobs. She doesn't have the strength for the really hard work, like heavy lifting and so on. Jonna has learned that some work has to be done, regardless how boring and irritating it might be, and she is not the one to complain about it. Due to the shortage of food while she was growing up, she takes a grest interest in it. But since there never was much to eat, she can for now, not eat a lot at one time.

    Her upbringing also effects her relationship with pokemon. She is friendly towards them because they need to work together, but she expect them to work hard like herself. Her experience with teamwork as essential for life, means that she will try to learn her pokemon to think and react by themselves. Then she doesn't need to guide them all the time, which will make her free to concentrate on her own part. She will probably be angry if a pokemon isn't interested in co-orporation, since in her oppinion it could be life threatening.

    Jonna is very aware of both the Rouges and the Guardians.
    The Rogues: She doesn't like rogues and thieves, since those who had passed by New Gladestead had tried to rob the few things they had. She is afraid of rouges and distrust them, because she is sure that they want to take everything she owns, and maybe even kill her.
    The Guardians: Jonna has a huge respect for Guardians and is usually too intimidated by them to question their behavior or demands. However since it was normally Guardians who collected the taxes in New Gladestead, she dislikes them a little too. Not that she would go against them, as she knows that part of the taxes went to the the guardians and their work to keep her village safe from robbers.

    Goals: She wants to learn to take care of herself, and if successful, make money to help her home village become debt free.
History:
    Jonna grew up in the small and poor village called New Gladestead, which according to the stories, was named after another town, named Gladestead, located in a forested area. When the founders of Jonnas village had reached some few crippled trees in route threes endles fields, it had reminded them of their old home. And therefore they choosed this place to be their new home. The village supports it self by farming, but had been hit by bad luck with failed crops and droughts, which had caused some years with starvation and several of others with only enough food to keep the village alive.

    Jonna has 11 siblings of which 7 is still living, the rest died young by different causes. 3 of them died as infants of starvation and one was killed under an assault of bandits while Jonna was little. Jonna has only met 2 of her dead siblings, since she wasn't born herself when 2 of them had died of starvation. She was too young to understand what happened when one died of the assault. As she was only 3 years old, and only remembers a lot of sadness. The last of her siblings was a boy who was born dead after a long drought. Her living siblings either work in the village as Jonna did, and when old enough got married, or were sent out to earn money to the village. The deaths didn't affect Jonna much, as she hadn't much interaction with the ones who died. But the incidents covered the family in mild sadness, and death was never far away in thought. This has learned Jonna to accept death as an inevitable part of life, even though she'll never find it comfortable. Had it been her parents or her cousin and best friend who had died instead, it would have been a complete different story. Due to the many lost children, Jonnas parents were very protective of their kids, until they were old enough to care for them selves and get a family of their own. They did their job well, as it was only in the extraodinary hard times that they lost some of their children. Jonna has no doubt about, that she and her sister and brothers are loved by her parents, and had they been more wealthy it would probably had been a happy childhood. The parents did what they could, with the resources they had in hand, and Jonna, who hadn't known everything else, found her life perfect except from the hunger she always felt.

    While Jonna lived in the village, her main job was to help her mother and take care of the vegetable garden. When help was needed in the seeding and harvest season, she was sent to the fields as well. It is from these times she has her experience with pokemon, as she controlled the ones who was pulling the plow and things like that. All these pokemon were well trained and didn't cause any trouble while working, so Jonna hasn't any experience with some who is stubborn or untrained.

    When Jonna was a little girl, there were a lot of pokemon in New Gladestead. But the failed harvests had required that the village had sold some of them, and as the years had past without better harvest, more and more were sold. So in this times there were only a few left, which hadn't made the life easier in New Gladestead. The harsh times had made assaults more frequently, and therefore the lord, who controlled the village, had to require more taxes to keep up. The village couldn't pay all the demanded amount some years, which has left it in a quite big debt.

    In an attempt to make the life easier, the village elders had decided to send out some of the younger members with a pokemon. They hoped they would earn enough gold to pay the lord back what they owed, and hopefully also buy some more pokemon and get the village back up. And now, they have decided that Jonna is the next in line.

QUOTE
New Things --- A scientist by the name of Gremlin (yes, that's his name) is overjoyed to learn about the Pennant isles. He'd like to catch some of the wild pokemon to study, but he's more of a scientist than a handler. He's looking for someone to go explore deeper into the isles with him and fend off wild pokemon while helping him catch any three (gen 6) specimens for his studies. He's willing to offer some gold and perhaps a hold item in exchange, depending on what you find.

RP Sample:
Jonna was bending over the small vegetables in the garden and removed every plant, that wasn't supposed to be there. I need to get some more water, if this are going to make it she thought and went to get her bucket. On her way to the well, she looked around in the village. It has become very quiet these days, now as Sophie and so many others are gone she wondered, while she was waving to her father who was working in the field with 3 of her siblings. When she returned with the water and started watering the carrots, she thought of the last time The Guardians had passed by.

A few days before the expected arrival of The Guardians, Jonna saw one of her cousins walking out of the village. She had looked very pleased at proud, and she didn't stopped to talk with Jonna. It had been a big surprise for Jonna, since they normally tried to spend as much time together as possible. "Hi Sophi. Where are you going?" Jonna asked friendly and waved to her. Sophi hadn't answered her, and just send her a little nervous smile with a sad tingle in her eyes. Jonna had been as stunned, and had just watched as her friend slowly disappeared in the horizon. Her mother had called her back to the reality, and had only answered Jonnas many questions with a nervously "Don't worry. And please don't ask again."
A few days later, The Guardians had come and Jonna had watched them with awe. They had laughed, were well-fed and glamorous dressed, well at least in Jonnas eyes. They had taken more than usually because there were a marriage in the lords family. And Jonna had wondered about how fat the lords family were, since they apparently could eat so much. The Guardians had also taken one more of the pokemon with them as well, which the elders had not been pleased with. But none of them had done anything against it, and they had just sent many worried glances after The Guardians, as these left again.

Jonna had stretched her back and looked around to see, if The Guardians were in sight. It was around this time that they would come, and if they were on the way, she would find a good hiding spot, and watch them at a safe distance. Jonnas mother had always been keen to keep her daughters out of sight, when Guardians or other people with similar power came to New Gladestead.
The door opened and Jonnas mother stepped out. She seemed restless, and twisted her hands with unease. Jonna looked unsure at her, but before she could ask what was wrong, she was held in her arms and got a hug. "Take care my little girl" she had whispered in Jonnas ear. Surprised Jonnas stared at her mother, who had tears in her eyes, but also a smile full of hope. "The Elders wants to see you, my dear." She said and pushed Jonna at the exit of their little garden. "Don't let them wait." Her mother said quickly before she retreated inside the house to hide her tears.

Jonna had become very nervous about, what the elders wanted at her. She didn't want them to be displeased with her, if she was late, so she ran to the house, where she could see them waiting.
As she arrived she was stricken by their seriousness and grave faces and bent her head in respect. One of the elders showed her inside the house, while the rest of the other left.
Inside the dark room he showed her a table with some familiar items. "Let me explain young Jonna." The Elder started, while she was looking curiously at the table. What is going on? she thought confused. "As you know, the situation here is not the best. And we have decided to give you young ones a chance for at better living, which requires immediately action," he told her seriously. He watched her thoughtfully for a moment before he continued. "If you are successful, we hope you can help us out afterwards," he said quickly and sounded very worried for a moment. Then he cleared his throat and walked to the table, with Jonna walking at his heels. "We have collected what you will need for the journey, including a pokemon to start of with," he told her and started to explain what the elders wanted her to do. Jonna had trouble concentrating on his words as she looked speechless at all the items that was suddenly given to her. A lot of the things were old and secondhand items, but to Jonna it was like she was handed over a whole kingdom. Carefully she touched the pokeballs and at last she took the Pokecard in her hands, as she was afraid to destroy it.

Jonna was shooed out of the door with a warning not to tell where she was from. The elders wasn't sure of what The Lord would say, and therefore wanted to keep this thing as a secret. Jonna walked like in a dream until she was well outside the village. Then she slowly realized what had happened, and she turned around to look at New Gladestead in the horizon. She swallowed hard, as she was now on her own.
