Character: Keiko Kamen
Keiko is strikingly plain eighteen year old girl with freckles and
green eyes. Nothing about her appearance particularly stands out aside
from her being a nudist. Most of the time she is completely naked
except for her belt pack and a hair clip she uses to keep her strawberry
blonde hair behind her. The soles of her feet have actually hardened to
the point where they are tougher than shoe leather due to her walking
barefoot all the time. She's a little on the short side and her figure
is less than admirable, but she does not suffer from poor body image and
keeps her hair and skin in good condition.
Keiko is a very friendly and charming girl who will go out of her way
to help her friends. She'll do her best to comfort anyone who's feeling
down, although being naked can cause some interesting side effects. She
is empathic towards people and Pokemon, and she doesn't like to talk
about sex. If its brought up, she gets flustered, claims its
inappropriate, and tries to change the subject.
To Keiko, nudity has nothing to do with sexuality and everything to
do with personal freedom. She enjoys the freedom of movement nudity
provides, especially when swimming as swimsuits tend to become heavy
with water. While she will take any oppurtunity to hang around in her
birthday suit, she will oblige requests to cover herself. Unless
formality is an issue, this usually consists of either a towel or a
novelty bikini cover and even then she may try to talk her way out of
it. This is especially true if she thinks people are expecting her to
do something obscene, which she won't. So stop worrying about it.
Being around people who wear clothes doesn't bother her. In fact,
when around non-nudists she'll be the only one who isn't uncomfortable.
Wearing clothing doesn't bother her much, either, unless they're wet or
its really hot out. When traveling companions express discomfort about
it, she usually suggests they try it themselves. She may also challenge
them to Pokemon battles to distract them. They are often surprised they
get used to it after, on average, fifteen minutes.
Keiko hails from Copper Island, just off the route between Dewford
and Slateport, which boasts a notable nudist colony. Keiko and her
family don't live in the nudist colony but rather in unassuming Copper
Town nearby. Keiko actually picked up the lifestyle from her friends,
some of whom lived at the nudist colony, at a young age. Her family was
open-minded enough to let her continue, and so she spent most of the
time in the buff.
Clothing - Yes, Keiko does carry clothing. In fact, she carries so
much clothing its hard to believe her pack belongs to a nudist. She has
an outfit for every occasion, including formal wear, foot wear and
Towels - While these are occasionally used to dry herself off, they
actually find more use as seat covers for hygenic reasons.
Space Saver bags - You wouldn't believe how effective these things
are at reducing the amount of space used by clothing and towels. And
they're water-tight, too.
Garbage bags - Believe it or not, nudists carry out more trash than
they bring in.
Sleeping bags - Let's face it, it's just too cold to sleep at night
Sunscreen - And lots of it. Applied at least daily and liberally.
Interesting note: Clothing has an SPF, the darker the better, which can
be extended by wearing sunscreen under them.
Given to her by Copper Town's resident Pokemon expert, Professor
Sikoumori. It didn't really occur to her until later that Skyler was a
"Sky clad" Pokemon. Like most Swablu, Skyler is anal retentive and will
clean anything that looks dirty or straighten anything that looks crooked.
Moves: Peck, Growl, Sing, Secret Power
The first Pokemon Keiko caught. Once she earned a Surf HM, she
taught it to Richard in order to get off the island. Granted, she
could've used the ferry, but she wanted to leave by Pokemon.
Moves: Surf, Rollout, Growl, Hail
Keiko was curious about why fighting-type Pokemon tend to wear
clothing, so she caught a Machop. She's hoping to get the information
once she finds a translator. In case you're wondering, Mega Drain comes
from a Kantonian TM she bought off eBay.
Moves: Karate Chop, Focus Energy, Bulk Up, Mega Drain
