And WIP of my girl. Possibly close to Silk's, but more mature and calm (and incredibly softhearted when it comes to pokemon) than young, shy and naive.
Sabine LaneHome Region:
Bisexual, leaning towards lesbianStudent DetailsMajor:
(Minimum of one, maximum of four)
Mary - Flaaffy
Tilde - Growlithe
Solaine - MarowakStrengths:
Strong-willed, extremely compassionate and very experienced in surviving on her own and caring for her pokemon. Very good control over her emotions, with one exception. Weaknesses:
Cannot stand seeing pokemon, especially hers, hurt and has forfeited battles, including some that could still have been won, rather than risk further injury to them. Has been very slow, comparatively, in progressing through her journey because of this. Her knowledge of pokemon care is very limited, confined only to the pokemon she is familiar with - Flaaffy, Growlithe, Marowak and the earlier forms of her evolved pokemon. Anything else is unknown to her. Tends to be blunt and undiplomatic when dealing with people.Look/Appearance:
Very tall, pushing six feet in height, Sabine has the body of a country girl who then spent several years wandering around the wilderness on her own. She is far from musclebound, but has developed a very well toned form, somewhat at the expense of the development of her more ... feminine assets. Student HistoryPersonality:
Most of the time, Sabine is calm and collected, slow to angry if a bit sentimental and prone to get sniffly at rather sappy things. although she can rush when needed, outside of those moments she goes through life quite slowly, content to stop and smell the flowers both figuratively and literally. Caring to a slightly unreasonable degree she will eagerly help anyone that seems to need it, regardless of whether or not they've asked, and does tend to mother her pokemon quite a lot, almost treating them like they were her own children.
Her temper, though, does actually exist, and she has a very small amount of patience for bullies or those who harm others, whether human or pokemon, although her usual response is to go over and give them a stern talking to.Background:
The only daughter of a small family of Mareep herders, Sabine left on her pokemon journey as so many girls and boys did, accompanioneed by one of the Mareep that she had grown close to.
Usually, though, trainers either stayed close to home or did a quick - relatively speaking - lap of the local regions, typically returning home in a year or two with a few badges and several pokemon. By the end of her second year, however Sabine had obtained one badge (on her second attempt), and captured no other pokemon. Not that she especially minded. the battles with other wandering trainers and the customary wagers kept her able to support herself and her Mareep, and the two of them had quickly realised that they simply liked it out here.
Sabine's first 'capture' came during her fourth year when she found a young Growlithe pup being tormented by a Geodude. With no sign of the Growlithe's parents nearby and unable to simply leave the poor thing there as it yelp and whined and tried to hide.
As Mary lacked any real way to hurt the Geodude enough to make it back off, Sabine instead sent the Mareep around to pull the Growlithe to safety while she distracted the aggressive pokemon herself and then tended to the Growlithe's injuries as best she could, before treating herself for her own, that she had picked up from the angry rock-type.
Rushing the pup to a Pokemon Center - unwilling to risk hurting it further by carrying and jostling it, she used a pokeball - she was relieved to hear that the Growlithe would be fine and, not wanting to simply abandon her to beo on her own, let the Growlithe come with her.
And so she travelled, happily getting distracted along the way and running to help whenever she saw a pokemon or person in need.
Impressed by her willingness to help others even at her own risk and her obvious care for a pokemon, a ranger recommended her to the Academy, partly so that she would learn how to handle things properly before she got herself hurt worse than she already had been.OtherLikes:
