Bridgette LeFeuHome Region:
Bridgette has an exceptionally strong bond with her pokemon. She does not consider them pets or tools to be used, but friends. As she has been training her 'Three Musketeers' exclusively, the trio of pokemon have also grown rather attached to each other and support each other in battle frequently. Bridgette's team is mono-type but plays her strengths extremely well and she often comes up with odd or surprising strategies that put her team's strengths to use. Despite her smoking habit, Bridgette has an excess of energy and is extremely fit. She will fight to protect those she cares about. Weaknesses:
With Bridgette's excess of energy comes a bit of recklessness. She throws herself into situations she is vastly under prepared for with little care for what might happen if she fails. She can often land herself into trouble or put herself in unwinnable situations. Despite her fighting instinct and creative strategy, there are times when she is simply outmatched thanks to her mono-type team. Since Bridgette sees her pokemon as friends, she does not keep them in pokeballs and refuses treatment at pokecenters for them, instead relying on normal medical procedure to treat wounds. While this strengthens her bond with them and makes her pokemon tougher than they might naturally be, old battle injuries can come back to haunt them from time to time. Look/Appearance:
Tall and lanky with an athletic build. She has long hair the color of ash and eyes like deep amber. Her clothing is old and worn, betraying her rather low-class upbringing. She usually wears a white button-up shirt, red pants with suspenders, and clunky brown boots. Her clothing and hair have fire seals affixed to them to prevent burns. Since she often carries around her fire-type pokemon, this has in the past caused her clothing to come aflame. Thankfully the seals prevent this, meaning she will no longer accidentally flash people as her shirt burns up. She has a slightly grubby and unkempt appearance and often smells like smoke. Student HistoryPersonality:
She might very well have some form of ADHD. Bridgette wants to do something, anything. All. The. Time. She hates being cooped up indoors and prefers to be able to roam on her own. Even when she's standing still she's tapping her foot. She is a huge fan of competition and always gives everything one hundred percent. Her attitude is relentlessly positive and energetic. She is almost always smiling and happy, even if she loses a battle. When she's not battling or taking care of her pokemon she can be found training in martial arts.Background:
Bridgette lost her parents when she was just a baby and was raised instead by her uncle. She started out as a temperamental and reckless child and would often get herself into trouble stealing or committing acts of minor vandalism. That she and her uncle were both desperately poor did not help the situation and Bridgette was sometimes seen in the company of thugs, bullies, and gangsters. Vowing to turn the child around, her uncle, a martial arts instructor by trade, enrolled her in his classes. She took to it like a fish to water and the little Feu found a way to let out all that youthful energy and frustration. She began studying like mad, practicing not only with her uncle, but on her own time as well. She rented (or borrowed or stole) kung-fu movies so that she might watch them and mimic the moves she saw on screen.
Bridgette did not show any interest in pokemon until she turned fifteen. One day she was prowling around her usual back alley haunts when she saw a group of young hooligans berating and abusing a torchic. Imagining herself as some king of Kung Fu Jesus, she lept into the fray to stop the abuse! She found herself soundly overwhelmed and pummeled to the ground. It was not the preferred outcome. The little pokemon, however, was grateful for the noble gesture and the two were inseprable ever since. Athos, as she called him, became Bridgette's best friend. Later came the chimchar Porthos and, finally, Armais, a tepig. Where most trainers would catch a variety of pokemon or expand their team to more than three, Bridgette decided this strange mono-type team of three was good enough. Her 'Three Musketeers'. She has focused exclusively on training them and strengthening their bonds. It's come to a point where the trio of pokemon are fiercely loyal to her and even mime her movements from time-to-time.
Determined to develop a style of martial arts exclusively for pokemon, Bridgette travels from place to place, besting the fiercest trainers she can find. Rather infamous for her consistently upbeat attitude, silly demeanor, kung-fu obsession, and off-the-wall battle strategies, she is something of a known quantity among other trainers. Some (most) consider her to be a joke - but that's just the people that haven't faced her in battle. Those that she's fought know her as a fierce and unpredictable opponent who uses atypical tactics to win, even when hopelessly outmatched. Even when facing defeat she keeps the smile on her face, considering every battle a lesson, win or lose. OtherLikes:
