Reposting this, cause it's what all the cool kids are doing. Updated a bit, made her a girl. I'll join in once the game proper starts, since she's *from* Unova, so not much reason for her to be on a ship heading there.
Name: Cameron Webster
Home Town: Castelia City
Height: 5' 4"
Build: Stocky, Athletic
Hair: Dark Blond
Skin Tone: Light Tan
A little about yourself:
Cameron's parents are both minor researchers for the Battle Company, tracking the migrations of various bird Pokemon across the world to determine how they're affected by human expansion and major Pokemon battles. This is a fact Cameron covers up as much as possible, not out of shame per se, but because everyone that hears about it assumes that all Pokemon Researches are on par with the famous Professors, and watching faces glaze over when explaining the lack of teleporters and supercomputers got to be too much.
As a child, Cameron often sneaked out of the city, exploring the sandy area at the start of Route 4. This was kept secret as much as possible from his parents, who considered going outside the city too dangerous. Cameron rebelled in small ways, culminating in the befriending and capture of a young Sandile outside the city gates. Her parents tried to encourage him to follow other paths that would allow him to be close to Pokemon without the risks of battle, such as the Pokeathelon or the Contests of the Johto and Sinnoh regions, but Cameron was adamantly committed to proving that the best way to raise Pokemon was not in a lab, but to travel and struggle along side them.
Her parents eventually relented and allowed her to leave on her journey, her father gave her an egg he had received as a gift on one of his research trips -- Wurmple, a bug type, in honor of Castelia's gym.
