Cassandra 'Cass' Gale
Weight: 134 lbs.
Place of Birth: Mossdeep City, Hoenn
Date of Birth: June 24 (Cancer)
Blood Type: A+
Appearance: Cass is a tall, attractive young woman with deep red hair reaching
down to her back and light blue eyes. She normally wears a green T-shirt, blue
jean-shorts, socks, tennis shoes, and various bits of padding for use in
extreme sports. She carries her main gear in a large backpack, while her Poké
Balls, PokéDex, and PokéNav are stored on her belt. A pair of rollerblades
usually hangs from her backpack when not worn.
Personality: Cass is generally an easygoing person. She is quite friendly,
sociable, and outgoing. Like her younger half-sister, Alexandria Masters, she
has an adventuresome side to her, only she is far less cautious than Alex. Cass
is quite energetic and overeager, almost like a young child on a sugar rush.
She also tends to swoon over exceedingly attractive men, occasionally causing
some minor embarrassment for her younger half-sister.
History: Cass was born in Mossdeep City in the Hoenn region to Kyle Gale, a
former agent of Team Rocket, and Helen Mass-Gale, then a minor player in a
local construction firm. Shortly before her birth, Cass's father was killed by
agents of Team Magma. Cass's mother left Mossdeep soon afterwards, then married
Lyle Masters shortly after Cass's birth. Cass's half-sister, Alex, was born a
few months before Cass's second birthday.
At the age of ten, Cass left her new home of Lilycove City for the Johto region
with Obsidian, a Larvitar given to her by her stepfather as her first Pokémon.
Over the course of a three-year journey, Cass traveled across Johto, Kanto, and
Hoenn, ultimately collecting the twenty-four badges from each region and
capturing nine Pokémon, three from each area. She returned to Lilycove City in
time for her thirteenth Christmas, and has since spent her time training her
team for tournaments and contests. She now hopes to aid and possibly compete
against her young half-sister one day.
Hobbies: Cass enjoys rollerblading and watching Japanese Animé. Among her
favorite series is Mobile Fighter G Gundam, mostly due to the character of
George de Sand. While not as widely read as her sister, Cass does occasionally
Pet Peeves: Cass generally dislikes womanizers and those who believe themselves
above others without proper reason.
Abilities: Cass is skilled at rollerblading, and has an interest in mechanics,
which has led her into building and modifying sports cars. Unlike her sister,
Cass is also an excellent swimmer, and enjoys deep-sea diving off Lilycove's
Weapons: Unlike her sister, Cass carries no weapons.
Weaknesses: Cass's roving eye is her primary weakness.

Current Pokémon: Nine
Tyranitar (Nickname: Obsidian): A massive hulk, Obsidian is tough but gentle,
especially around Cass and those close to her. He is intelligent, social, and
immensely loyal, and acts more like a playful kitten around Cass than a
powerful monster. The most experienced of Cass's Pokémon, Obsidian has carried
Cass through thirteen Gym Battles, in most cases earning her a Badge
single-handed. Obsidian is the only Pokémon whose language Cass can understand,
and more often than not acts as a translator.
Attacks: Strength, Crunch, Rock Tomb, Screech
Golduck (Nickname: Nosedive): Wild and courageous, Nosedive is the second to
leap into action alongside Cass, the first usually being Obsidian. During
battle, Nosedive often makes witty retorts, often causing the opposing Pokémon
to fall off their guard and make careless mistakes, usually resulting in their
defeat. When not in battle, Golduck often enjoys sitting back and reading comic
books, and is quite fond of anything written by Peter David or Simon Furman.
Attacks: Dive, Confusion, Dig, Psych Up
Manectric (Nickname: Jolt): Sharp-minded and direct, Jolt is always moving at
breakneck speeds, save when sleeping. Out of a desire to protect Cass, Jolt
often scouts ahead of her, scanning the area for possible dangers and any sort
of trouble. His devotion to Cass is so great that he only acts after being told
to do so, save when protecting her from danger or in a life-or-death situation.
His undying loyalty may cause other Pokémon to make jokes on his behalf, but
his speed and power in battle quickly silence their laughter, only to replace
it with the sound of a lightning strike.
Attacks: Flash, Bite, Shock Wave, Secret Power
Wailord (Nickname: Triton): A gentle master of the seas, Triton is relaxed and
in control whenever he takes to the oceans. His language, while simple, often
expresses his thoughts clearly and without much hassle. Triton dislikes
Gyarados, believing that they discredit the honor of all ocean-dwelling
Pokémon. He has similar feelings towards Sharpedo as well.
Attacks: Waterfall, Rest, Earthquake, Amnesia
Dragonite (Nickname: Hot Shot): A hotheaded flying ace, Hot Shot is egotistical
and stubborn. However, he often has the skill to back up his claims, flying
faster and further than most Pidgeot. Hot Shot's pride and vanity cannot allow
any other Pokémon to outshine him when it comes to flight, and he often ends up
racing his challengers to defend his title. Such matches rarely result in wins
or losses for Hot Shot, mostly leaving him desiring a rematch with his
competition. Despite his ego, he is loyal and trusting towards Cass and Alex,
and is quite willing to get them where they need to go, no matter the distance.
Attacks: Fly, Ice Beam, Fire Blast, Safeguard
Claydol (Nickname: Enigma): Calm and unobtrusive, Enigma battles only when
called upon. In its telepathic voice, Enigma always tries its best to guide
Cass along the safest path and give advice. However, these pearls of wisdom are
often quite cryptic, and Cass is rarely able to fully understand them. Despite
this, however, Enigma remains with Cass in hopes of one day showing her the
Attacks: Rock Smash, Psychic, Earthquake, Rest
Not on Active Team:
Azumarill (Nickname: Ariel): Given to Cass while an egg in Johto, Ariel is
gifted with Sing, and practices her vocal talents often. Thanks in part to mass
exposure, Cass and the rest of her Pokémon are only reduced to drowsiness upon
hearing her song rather than full-fledged slumber. Aside from singing, Ariel
enjoys swimming, and often joins Cass when she is out in the water.
Attacks: Surf, Rollout, Rain Dance, Sing
Politoed (Nickname: Scylla): Energetic and lovable, Scylla is in some ways the
closest that Cass will ever come to having the stereotypical 'cute Pokémon
mascot'. Scylla enjoys the company of others, and is quite playful around
anyone, even complete strangers. It is only thanks to dumb luck that Scylla has
avoided trouble thus far. Despite her naivete, Scylla is a competent fighter
and very difficult to defeat.
Attacks: Whirlpool, Belly Drum, Mind Reader, Ice Punch
Vileplume (Nickname: Rose): Exceedingly vain, Rose is Cass's primary contender
in Pokémon Beauty Contests. Aside from her vanity, Rose's main traits include
compassion and battle skill, both linked to her vanity in their own ways; the
one from not wishing to see harm done to her beautiful form, the other for
seeking vengeance for harm done to her beautiful form. It is thanks to this
second trait that Cass often leaves Rose to contests than have her in battle.
Despite this, Rose likes both Cass and Alex, and will proudly stand alongside
Attacks: Cut, Moonlight, Magical Leaf, Petal Dance
Goals: Cass's current goals include winning in Pokémon Contests across Hoenn,
aiding and guiding Alex when she can, and perhaps one day competing alongside
her in a Tournament.
Additional Notes: Cass is currently helping her sister with the 'Search for
Smasher', and with the help of other members, has determined a possible link to
