Good think I keep all my profiles on a handy flash drive! That said, I may have had a more updated version of my characters' backgrounds, personalities, etc. on your blog. Would you mind checking?

However, this confidence has given him an arrogant attitude. He has developed a close bond with each of his Pokémon and has a bitter hatred toward Team Liberty.Background: Growing up in Snowpoint, he quickly developed a liking for cold weather. His parents had that, living in such a remote location, they could avoid most of the war. At the age of 16, Dack joined Team Rocket, much to his parents' distress. For the next three years he lived at Purgatory, Team Rocket's Sinnoh base, slowly making his way up the ranks. When he heard of the avalanche that wiped out Snowpoint, he was devastated. Dropping his current mission, he returned to his hometown for the first time in three years. He tried to unearth his home, but it was covered in too much snow. His parents were not among the survivors. What he did find though, was a new hatred toward Team Liberty.

Number of Battles: 0 Name: Ellen BurksFaction: NeutralHometown: Village Bridge, UnovaAge: 10 (9 at the start of the RPG)Appearance: Light auburn hair, brown eyes, somewhat small for her age; she wears a light-pink shirt and Capri pants.Personality: Kindhearted and lighthearted, she is the epitome of a childlike innocence. However, because of this she is very naïve, although she is also curious. Having grown up with her Pokemon, she is extremely close to them. Although she cannot exactly speak to Pokemon, it is not hard for her to understand them, even when she has had very little bonding with them.Background: Having lived in Village Bridge for all her life, she has seen very little of the world outside it. She recently went on a vacation to visit her aunt and uncle in Accumula Town, though her parents had to stay behind in Village Bridge because of their work. Being outside of her hometown for the first time (with the exception of a few trips to Lacunosa Town), she became highly curious of the world outside of Village Bridge. As her vacation drew to a close, she tried to convince her parents to let her walk home, so that she could see more of the world. Her parents eventually agreed, on the condition that Terry, their family pet Herdier, accompany her to protect her on her journey.Pokémon: Duosion (Duo), Mienshao (Artemis), Herdier (Terry), Purrloin (Chrono), Turtwig (Maturin) Species: Duosion (male)

Appearance: Slightly smaller than the average (2’0”) Duosion.
Personality: As a Solosis, he often used his telepathy to communicate with Ellen, trying to be a voice of reason. With his evolution, Duo’s brain has now split in two. Consequently, he is a lot more indecisive about things. Often he can see both sides of a situation, which is both a blessing and a curse. Whereas before he had a modest nature, now he is more quirky.

In addition to stealing food, he will also play pranks on people for fun. He is very bitter toward and distrusting of all humans, although the fact that he doesn’t try to run away from Ellen suggests that he trusts her more than usual. Despite his capture, Chrono continues to have a naughty nature. However, Ellen is convinced that there is some good in him. Ellen’s other Pokemon, Terry in particular, are still wary of the Purrloin.Ability: LimberSpecialty: He has great speed, which comes from all the getaways he’s made after his theftsKnown Moves: Scratch, Pursuit, Fake Out, Hone Claws, Slash, Charm (egg move)Number of Battles: 3 (“Black,” Seven (x2)) Species: Turtwig (male)Nickname: MaturinTrainer: Ellen Burks (OT Evan Tierra)Appearance: Leaf on his head looks a little more raggedPersonality: Careful and unyielding, Maturin is a force to be reckoned with when angered.

Name: Paul Burks
Hometown: Born in Accumula Town, Unova; now lives in Village Bridge
Appearance: A burly man with brown hair, black eyes and a stubble beard; his hands are rough and often dirty from his work as a blacksmith. He wears a dark green shirt and cargo pants, and usually has a serious expression on his face.
Personality: The first impression many people have of Paul is that he is a very stern, unyielding man. And that is true for the most part. However, underneath his serious demeanor lays a husband and father who truly cares for his family. He has always despised the Rocket/Liberty war for the potential threat it posed to his family should the war ever spread to Unova; now, he hates the war even more because it has caused his daughter Ellen to run away from home in her stubborn belief that she can help bring about a lasting peace.
Background: Born in Accumula Town, Paul was a teenager when Ghetsis tried to take over the region through Team Plasma. He refused to let the villainous team “liberate” his Pawniard, and ever since Paul has held a bitter resentment toward Team Plasma. When Plasma later became Unova’s governing body, Paul decided to move to Village Bridge, as the Sages’ presence was less prominent in the small village. Paul started up work as a blacksmith and was eventually hired by the weapons company Déoza. This was where he first heard of the war going on overseas, which only served to increase his hatred of Team Plasma for keeping the war a secret. When his daughter Ellen was born, Paul vowed that she should never have to experience the pain and confusion that he had felt when Team Plasma had tried to “liberate” his Pokemon. However, in his concern Paul became overprotective of his daughter, rarely allowing her to stray outside of Village Bridge. As a result, Ellen became highly curious of the world outside her hometown. After Ellen had traveled with a group of Liberty and Rocket members she learned of the war and became determined to stop it peacefully. She ran away from home, leaving Paul and his wife Anna grief-stricken. Now Paul has travelled to Hoenn on business with Déoza. But his primary objective is to find Ellen and bring her home before the temporary ceasefire in the war ends.
