Character Name: Sapphire
Author: Beth (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Sapphire is a young man of average height and weight. He appears to be
around 18 years old. He has eyes that are the color of ashes, and
almost always sports a bright smile. He wears a sweatshirt and cargo
pants, hiking boots, and a pair of Go-Goggles that are usually perched
atop his forehead, and used like a bandana, to keep his silvery blue
hair out of his face. Sapphire carries a white PokeNav (iNav), which
is clipped to a plain leather belt, and a single-strapped backpack,
which is slung over his shoulder. Around his right leg he wears a
second belt. This one sports six small pouches, two of which contain
small, cystaline Pokeballs. In his left pants pocket, he carries a
pocket knife and some lock picking equipment.
Sapphire is an outgoing young man with a modest attitude and a
slightly naive outlook on life. He is almost always in a good mood,
and doesn't seem to be bothered by the fact that he's much older than
the average beginning Pokemon Trainer. He cares deeply for his
Pokemon, and is interested in learning what he can about all of the
breeds, but doesn't necessarily seek to capture all 386. Generally
speaking, Sapphire is not the type of person who would stand out in a
croud. To those who don't know him, he comes off as a simple guy, just
trying to make it in the Pokemon world.
To become a Pokemon Master and destroy all evil organizations in
operation, the standard Hoennian dream.
Filly is a cheerful Torchic with dreams of flying. Since she was
trained by Professor Birch to be obedient, she is always ready to help
her master. She has a fondness for Sweet Pokeblocks, and has a
tendency to rush into battles, due to her eagerness to gain enough
experience to evolve.
None so far.
None so far.

Character Name: Grey
Grey is 23 years old, but he is capable of making himself look younger
or older, given the proper disguises. His natural hair color is dark
brown, and it's cut close to his head. Unless circumstances call for
him to do otherwise, he wears a Rocket Executive uniform. He generally
looks very prim and neat, and a little bit intimidating, thanks to his
empty gray eyes. He carries experimental "Reson Balls;" crystal
Pokeballs designed to permit their inhabitants to see, hear, and speak
while in transit. He usually keeps a few "dummy" Pokeballs on hand as
well, which he uses when he wishes to throw off would-be thieves. Grey
usually carries some sort of concealed weapon, his favorite being a
miniature Zap Cannon-calliber tazer hidden in the hilt of a pocket
Grey is a member of Team Rocket, but more importantly, he is a Pokemon
Breeder. He has spent much of his life studying Pokemon genetics, and
he knows an enormous amount about statistics and abilities. His goal
in life is to breed the perfect Pokemon, and since he is constantly on
the lookout for good breeding stock, he tends to view wild Pokemon
analytically, and with dispassion. Furthermore, because he is quite
proud of his own knowledge, he tends to look down on less experienced
trainers as ignorant, and his cocky attitude translates to everything
else in life. He has a smart mouth that his coworkers find obnoxious,
but most put up with him anyway, since he usually comes through for
them when they need his help.
Little is known about Grey's past, as it is one of the few things that
he refuses to talk about. He has been in Team Rocket longer than
almost any other acting member, so some people believe that he was
born into the gang. Others speculate that he joined shortly after
Giovanni took over. If Grey has any parents, he does not speak of
them. Spiritually, Giovanni is probably the closest thing that Grey
has to a family member, and it is rumored that Grey was one of the
Executives who helped restore Giovanni to power after the fall of the
Viridian Gym. Most recently, Grey has been heading up the Pokemon
Genome Project, intended to help Team Rocket develop a living
weapon--an ultimate Pokemon possessing the most devastating attacks
known to man. This project is ongoing.
Grey has been sent to Hoenn by Giovanni, on a mission to infiltrate
the Magma and Aqua organizations. For this purpose, he is disguising
himself as a young trainer named "Sapphire". Because he must protect
his true identity at all costs, Grey is unable to utilize any of his
Rocket tools or Pokemon while in Hoenn. However, Grey has brought two
of his Pokemon with him on the trip as companions. Although they
cannot battle, they can still communicate with Grey through their
Bite, Flamethrower, Headbutt, Protect
Raksha is an effeminate Houndoom who has been with Grey for many
years. She has a light body with long limbs, and is so immaculately
groomed that it is easy to dismiss her as a pampered show dog.
However, she has been expertly trained, so she is more than capable in
battle. Generally quiet and aloof, she is strong willed, and will
stalwartly stare down any threat, without feeling compelled to flee,
fight, or even growl. She is a motherly figure who sees it as her duty
to protect Grey, and her mate, Gurion. Raksha has a cold and
suspicious attitude towards strangers, so it is hard to believe that
she is actually quite loving and friendly to those she knows.
Unusually empathetic for a Dark Pokemon, Raksha shares a deep
emotional bond with Grey, and is capable of communicating with him.
Teleport, Flame Wheel, Bite, Extreme Speed
Gurion is a monstrous Arcanine with wild yellow eyes. He is
characterized by huge paws with gripping talons, and dewclaws that can
function as thumbs. Gurion was once a member of a pack of intelligent,
but simplistic wild Arcanine called the "Arcaninen". His father, the
leader of the pack, viewed the human race as an enemy to be destroyed;
but Gurion recognized the humans' superior ingenuity, and felt certain
that, unless his pack learned to assimilate their knowledge, it was
doomed to extinction. He made the choice to abandon his pack, so he
could be closer to humans. Gurion has great respect for Grey, and
great love for Raksha, but he also has a savage nature that
overshadows his other traits. His chief instinct is survival, and he
becomes edgy and impatient when he is forced to participate in mundane
human activities which he does not understand--however, he tries his
best to learn from them. Gurion cannot speak the language commonly
used by Arcanine, but he communicates with a system of growls and
gestures that are easy for his mate and trainer to comprehend.
Team Rocket, although he has no means of contacting fellow agents
while in Hoenn.
Hopefully none, so long as he can keep his cover.
