Character Name: Sarah Crane
Character Age: 18
History: Sarah grew up poor and on the streets. She wasn’t running with a bad crowd, she was the crowd. Sarah isn’t sure what happened to her parents all she knows is that she was dropped off at the steps of the orphanage when she was about six years old. She remembers the tears, hers and her parents and that they were scared, but she doesn’t know why and says she stopped caring a long time ago.
The only person resembling family was an officer that checked in on Sarah from time to time. He seemed to have known her parents, but refused to talk to her about them. Officer Kendal did his best to curb Sarah’s behavior but it was a losing battle.
Sarah got as many meals from stealing as she did from the orphanage kitchen and learned early how to take care of herself. That isn’t to say that Sarah is all bad. She is loyal to those that she calls friends, she just doesn’t give that friendship easily. She caught her first pokeman not as a gift, she caught it on her own. One very hungry night Sarah had been casing a few of the local eateries for possible scraps when she caught a glimpse of a stalking purrlion. She stayed perfectly still and quiet and watched the sneaky little pokemon nab morsel after morsel. Sarah was so enamored with the cute and conniving critter that she missed out on any hope of a meal.
Sarah watched the Purrloin for four days, leaning its patterns. It wasn’t easy as the pokeman was one of the stealthiest things she had ever encountered, but one she felt ready she lifted a poke ball from a local trainer and waited for the right time to pounce. Over the next couple of weeks she and her new purrloin skulked the streets of Viridian City pilfering what they could. They were two pees in a pod those to until Officer Kendal and Blue finally caught up to them. Blue wanted them to be arrests, but Officer Kendal instead offered to pay for the poke ball and instead shipped Sarah and Purrloin off to Pallet City to be trained properly which is where she arrives when the game begins.

Note: I know very little about the world or the game. My only experience is playing the CCG with my kids. So if that is to much of an issue feel free to ignore. I plan on having Sarah be pretty clueless about this whole trainer thing and need instruction.
