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.

face claim: willy cartier


Full Name: James Achilles
Age: 25
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Bisexual

Class: Order Rogue
Starting City: Cypwater Point
Patron or Trick Lord: Aaron Murray
Notches: Lv.02 [ 2.75 / 5 ]
Condition: Fine
Aptitudes


Overall Appearance:
    Achilles has strong facial features, a prominent nose, high cheekbones, and a smattering of freckles. He thinks the freckles make him look too young. His eyebrows are thick and black, matching the color of his hair, which tends towards long for a man, about halfway down his back. He lets it free often, but when necessary he can braid it into a thick rope or stuff it into a bun. He is rarely clean-shaven, usually preferring some stubble but never a full beard. It suits him; whenever he's traveling, after all, he usually has no time to stop and shave.

    He stands at around 6 feet even, and weighs around 160 lbs. Though he has a slim frame, he's still quite strong and is able to carry weights beyond what some people think him capable of. Underneath his clothing he is the picture of a strong figure - muscles everywhere. He could be used as an anatomical study. His eyes are a dark brown, distinguishable from his pupils. With his mix of features, it's clear that he has not only typical Harperian blood but also a mix of Jingwhan and Dorani blood.

    Achilles, especially when it's cold or raining, sometimes walks with a small limp.

    When it comes to clothing, he knows he looks good in just about anything, but does go through the effort to find clothing he likes. The outfit he wears to find Trick Murray are good brown Bouffalant hide boots, well-made pants, a white shirt of the finest Mareep wool, and a red coat made from Wailmer, dyed with many berries. Always wears a necklace, made with worn brown string and a baby Clamperl shell.
Distinguishing Features:
  • Attractive - tends to stand out.
  • Long hair.
Overall Personality:
    Arrogant with the skill to back it up. He is well aware of exactly how good he is - and he thinks he's good at everything. He carries himself in the manner of a king, and will not stand for it when other people try and pull him back to earth. He respects few people but will treat everyone courteously until they prove themselves worthy - one way or the other - of different treatment. Fighting well is one easy way to get into his good books. Wealth alone does not impress him; most people with money, he's found, were born into it, and did not earn it. He will not back down from a challenge. He intends to be known, and will fight for it.

    He has a huge temper, and is very easy to get worked up. He holds grudges like no one's business - if someone insults him, he will remember their name, their face, and what they did. He doesn't forgive easily, either. In fact, all of his emotions tends to the extreme ends of the spectrum - he is not angry, he is wrathful; on the flip side, when he is happy he is overjoyed.

    Achilles knows he's good-looking, and isn't afraid to trade on it. If it gets him what he wants, it's well worth the cost.

    He doesn't trust ghost-types, and wants to keep away from them. Even after training an Aegislash on his first team, he views her as an exception to the rule. Full ghost types are not likely to make him very happy.

    He tends towards empathy, and does attempt to understand where people are coming from, as long as they have not wronged him severely. He tries to treat children with kindness. However, he puts himself and his own emotions first; it partly comes from a narcissistic side, but more from the protection of himself. He cannot, in good conscience, let himself become too close to another human being. He's afraid they'll be hurt.

    He has a reflexive death wish after the events which tore him from his previous life and sent him to the Order.
History:
    Born into a well-to-do family in Cape Augustine, Achilles is used to the finer things in life. The only son, he was the scion of the family, treated well and given everything he wanted. He had a good childhood, learning the courtesies of noble life and playing in the meantime, especially with his childhood friend Patrick, whom his family took in after an incident. The boys had a multitude of teachers and learned well, but most of their time was reserved for play. Achilles - never James, he decided when he was 10 - was given a Honedge as his first Pokemon, and decided to build a team around it.

    Tragedy struck when Achilles was 12, and his father died. His mother was not overly consumed by grief; theirs was an arranged marriage, and she held little love for the man. She loved her son dearly, though, and he stuck by her whenever she had need of him. Their father's estate was given over to her, and she spent much of it doting on her son, giving him fighting lessons and Pokemon. When he was 15, his team had grown into a Doublade, Scyther, Toxicroak, and Axew. He treated them all and loved them and his life, but he found something missing. Achilles felt he wasn't built for the noble life, and decided to take some time away from his home. He left, taking his Pokemon and Patrick with him.

    (There was another reason he left - he had gotten one of the servant girls, Daniela, pregnant. Not ready to be a father, he took off, leaving her to raise the boy alone after his mother kicked her out of the house. She returned to her own family in Harper's Pass, but still tells Nicholas about his father, a brave and powerful man with too much to do to visit his family. He doesn't really believe her, but he does think often of his father.)

    He did exceedingly well as a Handler, with Patrick at his side. They made a name for themselves as they took jobs and gathered a network of people. By 19, they weren't living large, but they had regular jobs and full teams, and plenty of chances to exercise their skills. It was everything Achilles had ever wanted - his name remembered, powerful Pokemon - he had picked up a Drilbur and a Bisharp, completing his team - and Patrick by his side.

    They continued this way for several years, occasionally stopping by Cape Augustine so Achilles could catch up with his mother. Life was perfect, and it continued to be that way until they caught the bad side of a gang from outside of Fough Place. Riding high on their continued success and confident as always, they were sure nothing could come out of the fight. They remained rivals with Hector's Worthies for around two years, before a final confrontation outside the walls of Fough.

    The battle was incredible. Achilles and Patrick had brought several of their contacts, and nearly the full strength of the Worthies was there. It was a killing field - both human and Pokemon alike had corpses riddling the ground, but the battle did look in Achilles' favor until a member of the Worthies managed to injure Patrick. It distracted him, but he wasn't fast enough - Hector's Braviary held Patrick down as Hector struck the final blow. He took the one Pokeball remaining from Patrick's belt as well, a young Mienfoo Achilles had given him as a gift.

    Achilles' rage and grief could not be contained. He raged through the battlefield, killing everyone in his path. But it wasn't enough. Too many of his men were dead, and Hector had too many people remaining. Achilles' Aegislash stood at his side through the end, finally struck down by a flamethrower from Hector's Arcanine. Hector's brother, Paris, was able to strike Achilles in the ankle, avoiding tendons but still causing a severe injury. It was Achilles' Scyther who saved him, carefully handling her handler and avoiding the attacks from the Worthies until she could get Achilles help.

    The ankle never healed right, despite multiple treatments. His Scyther, it turned out, was injured too badly to live, and the rest of his team had perished on the field, along with Patrick. There was nothing for him to do.

    He spent about six months at home, grieving and letting his mother dote on him once more. He considered suicide, but there was a need for him to live. He felt it. He would find Hector again, and he would kill him.

    Achilles left in the middle of night, a family Kadabra sympathetic to him transporting him to Cypwater Point, away from where he and Patrick had ever ventured. He would rebuild, and he would get his revenge.
