Well, might as well throw up my character sheet as well. Still working on her history. Also, what region is this story starting in? Kinda want to know exactly where to place her in the pokemon world.
: 18 Gender
: Female Sexual Orientation:
Kind and curious, though aloof and awkward in social situations. Far more at home in a library or computer lab than she is anywhere else really. She's always looking for new things to learn and new ways of applying her considerable knowledge. History:
Orana always had a head for science. Even as a child. She assumed its only natural considering her father was chief engineer at the local power plant and her mother a botanical researcher studying the effects of various berries on pokemon. Like the other children in her village, she dreamed of traveling the world and encountering as many of them as she could, but unlike them she had no real interest in battles or gym badges. She wanted to see pokemon in their natural habitat, behaving as they would if they had never met humans. She wanted to learn all of their secrets and shed light on the many mysteries that still surounded them.
She followed that childhood dream through schooling, often times forsaking her friends and family in interest of her studies and grades. Her hard work and dedication payed off in the form of a full scholarship to the Mihen University of Pokemon Sciences where she spent the last three and a half years of her life working toward her major in Pokemon Behavioral Science and Psychology.
Orana currently has her eyes set on one of only three openings as one of Professor Oak's aids. With her grades and knowledge, she's a perfect match for the position, or so she thought. Her application was denied due to her lack of actual experience handling pokemon. Though heart broken, she's not going to let that stop her. Professor Oak's letter mentioned that if she could demonstrate first hand knowledge of the miraculous creatures, then he might reconsider.
With her classes finished there's only one thing left to do before getting her degree, and hopefully, Oak's attention. Her thesis paper. A 500 page report about the behavior of pokemon in their natural habitat.
If she went out and gathered first hand observations of Pokemon, and included them in her report, then she could submit it to Professor Oak as proof of her experience, and would likely get a better grade from her instructors to boot. Two birds with one stone, so to speak.Pokemon:
None/Open to suggestion if anyone wants to play as her first pokemon
