My Cot Rpg Characters
Name: Karen Taketta
Faction: Team Rocket
Hometown: Goldenrod, Johto
Appearance: Karin is a teenage Caucasian female, with chestnut hair that falls to her shoulders, and grey eyes. She wears a custom black, grey and maroon uniform with the red R on the shoulders.
Personality: Karin is a shy and reclusive person. She doesn't like to speak to others, because she often trips over her words. She often wants to be and speak with other people, but she can not bring herself to do it, afraid of embarrassing herself. Because she stays away from others, she is often regarded as awkward or unfriendly.
Background: Karin can't remember anything about her parents or family. For as long as she can remember, she has been living on the streets of Goldenrod City among the other homeless children. She led a rather rough life for sixteen years, then Aulus came to power. Under Aulus, the community prospered, and Karin was finally able to do things she had been longing to do. Soon after Aulus' ascension, however, she was conscripted by Team Rocket. She decided that Team Rocket was likely a better life than her previous one, as she had definite shelter and food, even if it was mandatory for her to take on missions given to her. As she had no Pokémon, the first given to her was to go and catch one, as she would not take any offered to her by Team Rocket. She went out to the beach just south of goldenrod, and found a Buizel. She caught it, and now spends most of her time with it, as she prefers to be away from other people.

Character Name~ Karin Renard.
Age~ seventeen years
Specialized weapon~ standard crossbow, 14-inch tantō dagger
Appearance~ Karin is a lanky Caucasian girl with short brown hair and brown eyes. Out of uniform she wears light clothing designed for ease of movement. In uniform, she wears leather knee and elbow pads and wooden gauntlets rather than the standard steel pieces. The soles of her boots are leather-padded for stealth purposes.
Ability/Trait~ Having lived for three years as a thief in Revor, Karin developed skills in stealth and silent killing, as well as countering a sword with a dagger. She is also quite speedy and agile, a result of running the alleys and scaling the buildings of Revor.
Bio~ Karin was born in the Empire's more recently acquired island province of Yotama to the east of Alkermpa. During an uprising against the local government, both of Karin's parents and her older brother were killed. Karin, twelve years old at the time, was taken in by her grandfather, a professional weaponsmith, who then fled the island for a more peaceful life on the mainland. A year after settling down in an isolated town in Alkermpa, Karin's grandfather was killed by a particularly sadistic nobleman who was unpleased with a custom weapon he had requested. Karin now had to fend for herself in the world.
Karin stayed in the town for a few weeks, moving between small jobs before she finally turned to thievery. She moved from town to town until rumors began to spread of a 'fox girl.' When she finally reached Revor, a group of criminals who had heard of her had predicted her arrival and planned to remove her from the nation's 'crime framework' assaulted her, but were defeated. Karin settled in the city and lived successfully on her own, while alternating turning down recruitment by crime groups and evading assassination by others.
After another three years, when Karin was sixteen, she was caught up in the Empire's annual sweep for young recruits from Revor's criminal population. Karin decided that it was better to have a steady, not so immoral occupation, and agreed to join the Empire's military. She was assigned to the 1121st training squadron with whom she spent a year in training. Now, at the end of Karin's training, Karin has been assigned to the newly-formed Makers' Fists squad.
Karin's short term goals include settling in with the her new squadmates, and accomplishing whatever missions they are assigned. Her long-term goals include revenge for her grandfather and returning (at least temporarily) to Yotama.
Karin was initially a quiet, lonesome girl, keeping to herself, but her time with the 1121st squadron prompted her to open herself to others. With people she knows well (or those she looks down upon), she is often teasing, loud, and generally outgoing. She is short-tempered and prone to outbursts if she is provocated, angered, or annoyed enough. Karin also likes to play pranks on people, a result of the boredom that was commonplace on the streets of Revor.
Karin sometimes mixes fragments and mannerisms of her native dialect with her everyday speech, particularly when adressing others (though some of this is by choice rather than reflex).
