Gender/pronouns: female, she/her
Ship?: with Cole, Colain
Appearance: I have long, dark brown hair with sun-bleached blond highlights pulled back into a ponytail. The ends are uneven, due to the mixing of bangs and back hair, and many hairs are split at the tips. My eyes are either hazelly-brown or brown, depending on the light. They are slightly almond-shaped, and my face is a soft oval shape. My skin is a light olive, and my nose is small and not prominent at all. I am a few inches higher than 5 feet tall, and I have an average build. I wear rectangular glasses with turquoise blue backs and dark brown fronts to the plastic frame, a turquoise headband, and a necklace with an octopus pendant carved from bone. I also wear a long turquoise t-shirt with a white silhouette of a sea fan over a pair of dark jeans and a pair of sneakers. A navy blue rain jacket is tied around my waist.
Personality: I am a very emotional person, and all of the emotions that I experience are very strong. Around people whom I'm not best of friends with, my default state is "sarcastic cynic." I respond to just about everything in this state with sarcasm and cynicism, including minor grievances, grammar errors, immature jokes, or other things. "Sarcastic cynic" is the state you're probably most familiar with. When I'm around people I trust, I relax more. I laugh at jokes, exude cheerfulness, respond to things the cynic in me would treat with scorn encouragingly, but still retain the sarcasm and cynicism. However, it's lighter and more joking. This state is more open to emotion, and it's for this reason that I devolve into tears most often around these people. The "sarcastic cynic" takes much more annoyance plus exhaustion to get me openly crying. Tears are the negative end of the graph, and they happen when I'm frustrated and tired enough to let them through. They can be prompted by people suggesting that I have done something wrong, that can't be blamed on exterior factors, being very frustrated, being mildly annoyed while tired, being pressed to do something I don't want to do, so on and so forth. I usually curl up into a ball and hide my face when I'm crying, pull off my glasses to avoid smearing, and angrily lash out at others who dare suggest that I'm not okay that I am okay. Books, food, or other distractions are the easiest ways to bring me back to calm, but repeated agitation (this often comes from within - I cry when I'm frustrated, and crying makes me frustrated) will prolong the time I need to become calm. I try to make people happy with my jokes, but get annoyed when they don't land.
Would you like to be a legend?: Yeah, sure, but it's okay if you can't due to writing constraints.
Main members of gang, appearance, and personality:
- Fenny, a Delphox
Fenny is a Delphox whose personality can be best described as vain and impish. He adores playing tricks on others with his fiery staff and minor telekinetic powers over fire. Often he will admire himself in the mirror for hours on end. Fenny also loves to giggle at the feeble attempts of others to be as good as he considers himself to be. He is a perfectionist about just about everything - grammar, vocabulary, you name it. He crushes the feelings of others who aren't as perfect as him with ease. Despite these unpleasant qualities, Fenny is still Rain's first starter. He is loyal to her and those that she trusts above all. If someone threatens Rain, he will not hesitate to step in. As a fox-like Pokémon, he is good friends with Jaz.
- Pyro, a Blaziken
Pyro is a Blaziken who acts as a parental figure for the gang, along with Mei Long. He doesn't say much, and when he does, it's usually to stop the rest from executing some harebrained plan. As another one of Rain's starters, he is loyal to her. Unlike Fenny, his loyalty isn't absolute. He only follows her orders if they make sense to him. His solutions to problems tend to be the use of force, or whatever is the most efficient. His powers consist of flurries of kicks and punches with his fiery feet and hands. As a fighting chicken-man, he tends to side with Raife and Xiang.
- Ryoku, a Lucario wearing a Mega Stone on a cuff around his left wrist
Ryoku is an eccentric Lucario who tends to come up with the harebrained schemes. He takes refuge in audacity, and tends to blurt out random references to things bouncing around in Rain's brain, or just whatever phrase strikes him as appropriate. If the situation is dire and moods are grave, he will try to lighten the mood with some of his trademark weirdness. When he comes out of his audacity bubble, the situation is truly grave. He takes no sides but his own, and uses the powers of his aura to defend this. He can also Mega Evolve when the situation requires it, having a Mega Stone in a cuff around his right wrist. Ryoku obeys Rain because he recognizes the need for some sense in his life.
- Raife, a Decidueye wearing a Decidium Z as a pendant on a necklace
Raife is a Decidueye and an ace archer with the bow made from ghostly energy and the arrows of his feathers. Like his leafy hood hints, Raife keeps to himself most of the time. His thoughts, when they are voiced, consist of snarky remarks on whatever is going on that specific moment without consideration for feelings. He lampshades with abandon, and often names tropes. His affinity with the ghost world can make him seem invisible, or fade into the background. Around his neck, right at the collarbone in a human, hangs a Decidium Z, which lets him break out a hail of ghostly arrows to pin an opponent's shadow. The rest of the gang, while they won't admit it, fears him. Raife follows Rain because he fears and respects her.
- Jaz, a red fox
Jaz, as the oldest member of the gang and the first animal Rain summoned in the SA game, is the leader. She is a tough red fox who takes zero nonsense from anyone. When Rain is confused, the gang turns to her to make the decisions about where to go next. Although her full name is Jasmine, she hates that name. Referring to her as Jaz will get you a nasty bite in your leg. Despite her tough exterior, she cares about every member of the gang. She just hides that. When she is in passive state, she appears on Rain's left forearm in midair. While on the battlefield, she gives Rain short-range teleportation, on a cooldown of a minute between usages. As a fox, she sides with Fenny. Jaz follows Rain because they're spirit animal partners. To do otherwise would be unthinkable.
- Xiang, a Leach's storm-petrel
Xiang, a Leach's storm petrel, is Rain's spirit animal in real life. He often works with Ryoku to do stupid things, but Xiang enjoys more intellectual pursuits as well. Reading of any sort is fun to him, and he's often found enormously helpful things in his books. However, he's of the belief that whatever is in his books is true, unless he disagrees personally. He talks a lot, and makes up jokes of all sorts. He also pesters people constantly to listen to his insights or laugh with him. When he's in passive state, he appears with wings outstretched on the back of Rain's right hand. When he's out of the tattoo, Xiang gives Rain boosted speed. As one of the birds, he takes Raife and Pyro's side often. Xiang is part of Rain's gang because he genuinely likes her as a person, for all of her flaws.
- Mei Long, a red panda
Mei Long, a red panda, is the second spirit animal that Rain summoned in the SA game. She has a kind soul, and wouldn't dream of hurting anyone. She will heal any broken bone, any unhappy soul, just so that the world will be a little bit nicer. Even if the situation is dire, Mei Long will drop everything to help someone in distress. When she is in passive mode, she shows up as a red panda looking up on Rain's right forearm. When she's out of passive mode and granting power, she lets Rain perform minor healing. She may buff Rain at the same time as another spirit animals, but this tires her out more quickly. Mei Long is also a peace maker, and so she takes no sides and mediates. She is a part of Rain's gang because she wants to help Rain out, in whatever way she can.
Other: have fun writing
