Character Sign-up Sheet:
Name: Reilly Fox
Appearance: Reilly has dark, neatly combed hair that usually obscures her eyes and a nearly perpetual grin that is often described as unnerving.
Personality: Cheerfully morbid, Reilly was born and spent much of her early life in Lavender town. Her mother worked as a medium, claiming to communicate with the spirits of deceased Pokemon when their former companions came to mourn. She had no real powers, but was a skilled cold reader and worked with a Ghastly as her partner. Reilly developed a fervent interest in death, bones, and all the general minutiae that kids going through a "morbid" phase gravitate to, but her interest was always more academic than dramatic. She devoured any book event tangentially related to her subjects of interest, be it philosophical treatises on the afterlife or heavy tomes describing how the skeletal and muscular systems interact.
When she was 15 a scandal broke out when numerous former customers came forward to try and out Reilly's mother as a fraud. As countless shady dealings and questionable affairs came to light, Reilly's father petitioned for full custody and won. She moved with him to Fuchsia city where the next few years were much more peaceful. Seeing that she was having a rough time integrating with her new Step Mother and half-siblings Reilly's father, who had made an excellent income producing and selling antidotes to various poisons before the Purge, decided to indulge his daughter's fascination and purchased a rehabilitated Zubat that had been poached and eventually discarded by team rocket when it didn't take well to training.
Reilly has no real interest in battles (in fact she finds them rather cruel and barbaric) but has accepted the fact that she'll probably be partaking in plenty of them in her journeys.
Reilly grew up relatively well adjusted, though she has mountains of trust issues and a highly skeptical nature due to the fact that she watched her mother constantly scam emotionally vulnerable people for much of her early life. She is very honest and has little tolerance for deceitful people, but respects others' privacy. Though her interest in the dark and creepy remains strong she's actually quite skittish when faced with a frightening scenario in real life; she's very nervous around Ghastly and its evolutions in general and completely terrified of her mother's in particular due to "terrify the ten-year-old" being one of his favorite hobbies when she was young. While she never grew out of her dark phase she did eventually learn to reign it in, at least a bit. She tends to unnerve people when she's not careful, but she can manage most social situations as long as she doesn't get distracted
Starting Town: Fuchsia City
Starting Pokemon: "Echo" - Zubat - Has a large nick in one ear and a black ribbon tied around his neck. Tends to bite anyone who tries to touch him and isn't Reilly.
