Yes, this is a long post. Yes, all of it is necessary. Sorry about that.

Last Update: 12 June 2005 - Added a character and edited another.

Section One: Plotline

This is not the childlike world you thought you knew.

Those words explain everything about this world a world full of monsters and magic. A world of Pokmon.

Three hundred and sixty years have passed since Ash Ketchum had trained. His name, faded by the passing of time, has become nothing more than a legend playing upon the children's ears. And with his absence from the world comes a much darker effect: there are no heroes on which to call. In this world, the dark forces of Team Rocket, Magma, Aqua, and Snagem have all been defeated by the fallen angels that were formerly of their hellish ranks. Together, former rivals united under one name the Knights of the Morning Star. Soon, the cult-like organization slaughtered its way to the top by implanting agents in every possible field of control. In a matter of years, governments all over the world housed a member of the Knights, whether they knew it or not, and in decades, entire countries were controlled without opposition by the group. Yet no one desired to stop them simply because of the fear that had been generated by the secret weapon they supposedly carried the very Pokmon they used to annihilate the four Teams that once stood in their way.

Thus comes the present. The Knights have reigned for what seemed like eternity, leaving the Earth as a wasteland and its once majestic cities as crowded slums. You have arrived in what once was Saffron City, the golden city of Kanto and the supposed home of the Knights. Your duty: your choice. Good, evil, and neutral bent on taking down the Knights, bent on helping their rise, or caught in the middle. What path will you choose?

Section Two: Rules and Greetings From the Game Mistress

So, you've read the storyline so far, and you say you still want to be a part of Beast In the Machine? Well, might I say I'm impressed, and I welcome you to a (very) literate Pokmon RPG. Yes, that's right. It's none of that Mary Sue, let's pretend to be Pokmon stuff that you've seen on most other boards. This, my friends, is something better.

There's only a few rules other than the usual (post in coherent English, board rules apply), but please. Don't let that damper the mood. We're here to have fun, after all.

Rule List

1. Basic rules of RPGing apply. No godmodding, twinking, powergaming, or Sueing, please. (In other words, don't bend reality, don't control other people's characters, and don't create godly characters.)

2. No legendaries. There are only two legendaries in the world of the RPG, but they are currently in hiding, not on your team.

3. If you wish to be an elite member of the Knights (among the only players/members who know what the secret weapon is), you must first have another active character who has made at least five posts in the RPG.

4. A player may have up to three characters.

Classes

Knights of the Morning Star Hierarchy

Boss: Obviously, the boss of the organization. The position is hereditary, meaning if you're born to the family, you're guaranteed the position (unless the current boss has no children or deems his or her children unfit for the job). Currently held by Wednesday Lordes.
Archs: The elite members of the Knights. There have only been four of them four of the most trustworthy employees of the Lordes family and four of the most skilled members in the organization. Unlike the boss position or the lower positions, a member is not hired to be an Arch, nor is he or she born to the position or promoted automatically. Instead, whenever an Arch dies or retires (which usually mean the same thing for the safety of the organization), a new one is appointed by the boss.
Duke: Higher-ranked members. Dukes are not quite Archs, but they possess the qualities of one trustworthy, loyal, and skilled. They usually hold the higher positions in each field the Knights has a hand in executives in businesses, congressmen in the federal governments, et cetera. To become a Duke, a person usually must first have been with the Knights for a certain number of years (thirty, to be exact), and they must have shown an incredible amount of success during that time. It is from this group that Archs are chosen.
Squire: Medium-level members. These are members who show promise but are not quite ready for higher jobs. They are usually put to work in local governments or for more advanced projects.
Serf: Low-ranked members. These can be compared with the grunts such as Jessie and James in Team Rocket. They usually do lower jobs such as stealing Pokmon, capturing a small area, or other dirty jobs for the glory of the Knights. Most Serfs are simply new members, but it's not uncommon for higher-ranked members to be demoted to this position or for members to be so unsuccessful it's impossible for them to be promoted.
Priest: A little-known position within the ranks of the Knights. Anyone skilled in occult or religious matters can become a Priest in the Knights, and due to this, they are usually in charge of the "religious ceremonies" that take place within the Knights' headquarters. Only the boss, Archs, and Dukes know of the existence of this faction.

Trainer Categories

Trainers: Your basic trainers. They catch Pokmon, raise them, and use them to battle against others. There are several subgenres that classify the level of skill and the type of Pokmon a trainer possesses. For example, skill classes include Trainer, Gym Leader, Elite Four member, Junior Trainer, et cetera. Classes that imply a type specialty include Swimmers, Hex Maniacs, Psychics, Bird Trainers, and others.
Breeders: Pokmon breeders specialize in the care of Pokmon. Rather than battling Pokmon, they breed Pokmon and raise them from infants to maturity. Breeders usually participate in contests to show off their skills.
Note: Such contests that do involve battling exist only in Hoenn, and its participants, who are both Trainers and Breeders, are called Pokmon Coordinators.
Experts: Experts in the field of Pokmon pride themselves over the knowledge of Pokmon, rather than anything else. They may own their own Pokmon, but they prefer to study wild ones, rather than catch or breed their own. Note: Many Experts may also have extensive knowledge in the field of technology and combine their talents to provide devices for trainers such as the Pokdex, various forms of the PokBall, and the Pokmon Transportation System. Subgenres include Pokmaniacs (who are known to battle) as well as Pokmon researchers and Pokmon nurses (who generally do not battle).
Others: The "other" category encompasses those who use Pokmon but do not fit within the subgenres of Trainers, Breeders, and Experts. This category includes police officers (usually Officer Jenny), thieves, scientists, et cetera. People within this branch may or may not battle, depending on preference and occupation.

Section Four: FAQ

Q. I still don't get it.
A. That's not a question, but whatever. Basically, in this RPG, you play either a member of the Knights of the Morning Star, a rebel going against them, or someone who's unfortunately caught in the middle. If you're a Knight, you're bent on keeping the organization in power by oppressing the rebels using any method at your disposal. If you're a rebel, you're bent on forcing the Knights to dismantle for whatever reason you can conjure. And if you're a Neutral, not only do I feel very sorry for you, but you're also basically there to get caught in between the fighting. (Eventually, you may lean towards one or the other. It depends on who's more convincing to you.)

Q. How many moves may each Pokmon have?
A. An unlimited amount. Beast In the Machine is an anime-based RPG, which means certain laws present in the game, including the "four moves per Pokmon" rule, are not regarded because they aren't in the anime. However, I do wish that you not abuse the term "anime-based" by having your Pikachu fry a Geodude.

Q. What other facts of the game are not regarded in the anime/Beast In the Machine?
A. Beast In the Machine shares these characteristics with the anime:
-Pokmon may wander outside of their PokBalls.
-The Pokmon Transportation System transports Pokmon to the place where a trainer got their Pokdex, not to a PC.
-The Pokdex was invented by Professor Westwood V, not Professor Oak.
-A tournament is held on Indigo Plateau every year. Therefore, trainers do not have to defeat the Elite Four (who do exist as strong trainers only) to become League Champions.
-All parts of the anime storyline happened. (For example, Sabrina kept a Haunter for company.)

Q. What groups are present in Saffron City?
A. Knights of the Morning Star (obviously), the rebels (name suggestions welcome), and the Neutrals (slang term for people who are neither for or against the Knights).

Q. Why is Knights of the Morning Star considered to be "cult-like"?
A. Occult rituals are held in the basement of the base (which used to be Silph Co). Actually, I'm not kidding.

Further questions may be PMed to me at any time.

Section Five: Characters

Knights of the Morning Star

Player: Kaz Tamashii
Name: Wednesday Lordes
Age: 25
Occupation: Boss
Appearance: Wednesday has short, black hair done in a bob style, with her hair never reaching past the chin of her heart-shaped face. Her form is tall, thin (yet still shapely), and pale-skinned, and it's usually covered by a black business ensemble of some sort (usually black blazer, knee-length skirt, and pumps). The only other notable things on her body are her blood-red lips and the gold ring with a ruby literally covering the emblem of the Knights (a sun with a three-eyed face etched into it).
Personality: To put very simply, Wednesday is cold, cruel, short-tempered, and vindictive. She hardly notices anyone else around her save for those who have wronged her, and mainly those people are the unlucky ones. The main thing is one never questions her authority. Things better be done her way or else. (Needless to say, she hardly sees anyone as anything more than pawns to use for her own personal gain, though not to many people really realize that.)
Affiliation: Knight
Team: Murkrow, Arbok, Persian, Ninetales, Banette, Jynx
Further Notes:
- Wednesday was the only heir to the Knights. She was raised and trained to become its new leader, and eventually, the day came when she rose to power when her father mysteriously passed away. She barely loved her mother (due to the train of thought that the latter was weak) and so kept her by her side as only a secretary until she, too, passed away.
- Her family was originally affiliated with Team Rocket until that organization disbanded.

Further Notes: He trained with the knight since he was ten, they did not tell him that they left his sister alive so he thought she was dead.

Neutrals

Player: Kaz Tamashii
Name: Gillian Thomas
Age: 19
Occupation: Breeder
Appearance: Gillian, put simply, is a girl who looks like a boy. She has a tall, thin, fairly androgynous figure and a particularly male face. Short, wild, light brown hair crowns her head and frames her oval-shaped face, in which is embedded a pair of emotionless, blue eyes that peer behind a pair of wire-rimmed spectacles. She usually wears baggy jeans and an overlarge, grey hooded sweater over a loose-fitting, red t-shirt (which probably adds more to the gender confusion surrounding her). On her feet are a pair of large, dirty (and scuffed), brown work boots that almost match the leather gloves that don her hands.
Personality: Basically, Gillian is apathetic towards a lot of things. She's generally indifferent and prefers not to associate with other people (mainly because she doesn't care about what they do). However, when spoken to, she's mainly quiet unless an answer is forced out of her (at which point she may become irritated and snappy). Otherwise, to hide her lack of confidence and her mediocre intelligence, she just doesn't get into too many conversations. When she does make a friend, however, she can be loyal if she wants to, though she will continue to remain indifferent to the actions taken by her friends (unless she finds them particularly stupid). Overall, she's mainly practical and stubborn.
Affiliation: Neutral, leaning towards Rebel
Team: Farfetch'd, Quagsire, Raticate, Venomoth, Ditto
Further Notes:
- Gillian was originally from Azalea Town, but her travels eventually led her to Saffron City.
- Her basic dream is to become a world-famous Pokmon breeder (or at least to set up a successful shop in downtown Saffron).
- She has a younger brother (and living parents), but she doesn't mention them that often for one reason or another.

Personality: Rem is quiet and withdrawn. He is shy and doesn't even talk much with his friends, let alone total strangers.
Affiliation: Neutral
Team: Blaziken, Umbreon, Rhydon, Delcatty, Roselia, Masquerain.
Further Notes: Grew up with Angel and Kat. Travels with Kat. Doesn't know Angel is a Knight.

Player: Paige Pelletier
Name: Paige
Age: 12
Occupation: Highly Ranked Trainer
Appearance: Paige has dark brown hair that goes down to her ankles, she puts her hair up into two ponytails, she has deep brown eyes, and her skin is pale but has a soft tan to it. She wears a large red t shirt and baggy jeans, she also wears sneakers. She has a black messenger backpack, she has long nails (but not creepy long) and wears black fingerless gloves, she also wears a pair of silver celtic knot earrings.
Personality: Extremly shy and timid tries to stay away from people, and also tries to be polite. She does not trust anyone but her brother even though she knows he is with the knights. Her personality varies alot so you can never tell what she is thinking but it seems she always knows what you are thinking.
Affiliation: Neutral
Team: Pichu (on her shoulder), horsea, dragonite, absol, vulpix, cubone
Further Notes: Paige's family were rebels and were an extreme pain to the knights. So one day the knights sent some one to kill off her family, her brother who did not like the family eagerly joined the knights but everyone else was killed. This happened when Paige was five and when Gabriel was ten so to say the least she was on her own. She saw her family get killed but when it was her turn to die they just shrugged her off because of how young she was. She was left an orphan, so she took off and trained her pokemon. She is really conflicted because she loves her brither but the team he joined killed her family. On another note she has been known as a ruthless trainer in battle and does not really have any 'friends'.

One in his boot, one in his pocket, one in a special compartment inside his jacket, and usually one in his hand or other pocket.
Personality: The gangster thief. He has a bad mouth and is always beating people up. He really likes pokemon and people though, he only beats up the lowlifes who mistreat pokemon. Unfortunantly most people he meets aren't very kind.
Affiliation: Neutral lucky for him, bad for others.
Team: Arcanine ( Skippey ), Sentret ( Streetel ), Jolteon ( Biole ), Poliwhirl ( Pog ), Dragonite ( Wilt ), Aipom ( Ase ). Don't ask how or why I came up with these names, its just they are my dream team.
Further Notes: Peregine ran away from home as a young boy and lived on the treets. He is a true combat junkie and likes to start fights. Hes been brought into the hospital more than once, and then hes also been brought into jail more than once, too. He doesn't try to escape though, he just does the time. He was trained on the streets as an innocent child, but he spied on the enemies for his gang. Now hes on his own, he seperated from the gang and went on his own. And... he writes poetry?!

Humming.

That was the only sound that echoed throughout the lofty chamber. It was a low, ominous buzz of voices and souls rising through the silence sandwiched between the brick walls of the underground room. Darkness cloaked the ceiling, while shadows played across the floor as the puppets of the torches in the holders on the walls. Figures in black cloaks huddled in a circle around a white, stone altar to shield the actions of a man in red in the very center. Black eyes of a particular woman watched as the man lifted a dagger in the air. Light reflected off the small blade for a brief moment just before the arm fell.

Then, there was silence. It was the sort of silence one would expect just before the implosion of a sun.

At last, something happened, though few in the circle saw it. A smile crept across the woman's face as she looked at the result of the ritual. Everything, according to her mostly unknown plan, was going as she wanted it. Nothing could possibly stop her.

(OOC: Once you're approved, feel free to jump in from anywhere in Saffron City.)

OOC: Trainer Kat and Trainer Ben, consider yourselves approved. ^_^ However, pokegirl, I'm really sorry about this, but when it comes to being a Knight, you're either a Serf, a Squire, a Duke, or a Priest. You could probably do spy work in the first three positions (though it's more likely that the higher positions are just corrupt politicians). All I ask is that you edit your characters' profiles to include any of those four positions, and you'll be good to go. (You're basically approved other than that.)

By the way, there's a list right after the character app in the first post that should give you a basic description of what each position in the Knights is.

Anyways, to those of you who made it so far, go ahead and start RPing if you'd like (unless you're waiting for Gillian to make a move).

Ben finally arrived in Saffron. According to the readings they recieved, a ritual was being held right here in the city. Most of the information they've been recieving has been either misread...or false info given by a Knight as a trap. The Rebels had to be careful.

"I hope they're right. Well, since there used to be a Psychic gym here, a ritual would make sense," Ben said to himself. He took out a pokeball and threw it. It released Salamence, who growled appreciately.

"SalaShock, start flying above the city. Look for anything suspicious. And be careful," Ben warned. Salamence nodded and flew up into the air. It started looking at the ground.

Appearence: Gabriel has regualr length white hair, with bright scarlet eyes, he is pale but is a little tan, he wears black baggy jeans a black baggy t shirt and sneakers, he also wears a black back pack.
Personality: He is extremly quiet and shy, but that on him comes off as a stay away from me vibe, he was only kind and caring to his sister but he thinks she is dead.
Affiliation: Evil
Team: Raichu (by his side), golduck, scizor, gengar, arcanine, hypno
Further Notes: He trained with the knight since he was ten, they did not tell him that they left his sister alive so he thought she was dead. He and her got their first pokemon (pichus) at young ages so all he can remember about his sister is how she was so clueless in battle and how her timidness made her a target for bullying. All he has of hers is a picture os the two of them with their pichu. He is extremly ruthless in battle and he is also cold and unfeeling, that is why alot of people fear or respect him.

Kat took one step into Saffron and collapsed. "Gah! Kat!" Rem said, sliding under her and catching her. She sat up and brushed the little bit of dirt that had gotten on her off. "Thanks," she said, smiling. Rem sighed and stood up. "Honestly, Kat, how could you get that tired riding all the way here? And on an Arcanine no less," he said. Kat glared at him. "Rem! You!" she yelled. He laughed. "Anyway, let a Pokemon out to guard you. You don't know what could be here," he said. Kat threw a Pokeball, releasing Persian. Rem did the same, but instead released Delcatty. The two Pokemon worked well in a double battle. They started walking through the city.

(OOC: All recent entries -- including pokegirl's and up to Crystal's -- are now approved, so you may all post. And to answer Paige's question, yep. You can be a Duke if you'd like. You can really be anyone in the Knights except for the boss or an Arch unless you've got more than five RP posts here.)



How long had it been since she first stepped within Saffron's city limits? Gillian couldn't remember. It seemed like forever (though it probably was a mere few months). Each day was the same to her now. Every day, she would wander the streets of Saffron with her Pokemon in tow in search of a cheap place to set up shop. Every evening, she would work at Club Camelot, a bar at the east end of the city so she could earn enough money to actually buy a place. Every night, she would spend time at home to rest.

Right then, it was just past one in the afternoon. The sun shone through the gray clouds for once, but even then, the Saffron air was hardly hot. Simply dry.

Almost mechanically, Gillian reached towards her shoulder to stroke the feathers of the sleeping duck perched lazily upon it. She couldn't feel the feathers through her gloves, but she could feel him shudder in his dreams.

"Lazy Farfetch'd," she murmured as she narrowed her eyes at it.

Farfetch'd was her protection. There were rumors that Saffron was no longer a safe city -- that an organization called the Knights of the Morning Star were based somewhere within the city limits. And even worse, the reputation of the Knights was unnerving. There were whispers mentioning the idea that the entire thing was a demonic cult to a being whose power could plunge the world into the Apocalypse. Others insisted that the lot of them dealt with the higher ups of the government and that every conspiracy known in that day in age was really their doing. Yet even more told of the street gangs who claimed to be them: the rowdy, ruthless, and vicious figures who commanded Pokemon to steal, battle, and kill. For that reason, Gillian found herself unable to trust another citizen of Saffron. Not yet, at least.

Suddenly, her thoughts were interrupted by a flash of purple and white in the corner of her eye. She stopped walking and turned her head to find a large Venomoth hovering just beside her.

"Nothing?" she inquired.

He shook his head. No.

"Fine. Come on."

With a deep sigh, Gillian led her Bug Pokemon further down the street.

Name: Peregine ( Said like Peregine Falcon but I prolly spelled it wrong. ^^; )
Age:
Occupation: A thief and a bit of a breeder if possible.
Appearance: Peregine has blond hair about down to his neck. His eyes are grey and his skin is brown. He usually wears a black cap backwards and a black shirt with the sleeves torn off. And black pants too with chains hanging from his pockets. He is always carrying around at least four knives. One in his boot, one in his pocket, one in a special compartment inside his jacket, and usually one in his hand or other pocket.
Personality: The gangster thief. He has a bad mouth and is always beating people up. He really likes pokemon and people though, he only beats up the lowlifes who mistreat pokemon. Unfortunantly most people he meets aren't very kind.
Affiliation: Neutral lucky for him, bad for others.
Team: Arcanine ( Skippey ), Sentret ( Streetel ), Jolteon ( Biole ), Poliwhirl ( Pog ), Dragonite ( Wilt ), Aipom ( Ase ). Don't ask how or why I came up with these names, its just they are my dream team.
Further Notes: Peregine ran away from home as a young boy and lived on the treets. He is a true combat junkie and likes to start fights. Hes been brought into the hospital more than once, and then hes also been brought into jail more than once, too. He doesn't try to escape though, he just does the time. He was trained on the streets as an innocent child, but he spied on the enemies for his gang. Now hes on his own, he seperated from the gang and went on his own. And... he writes poetry?!

Salamence returned to Ben. It let out a small roar.

"What? There's someone here?" Ben asked the Pokemon. Salamence nodded. Ben did the same, and returned Salamence to it's Pokeball.

"Another Trainer here, eh? Well, maybe they can help," Ben said to himself as he started walking again. Ever since he joined the Rebels, people were scared of him. Well, scared of being next to him. People thought that the Knights would mistake them for Rebels if they even talked to Ben.

"WaterShock, come on out!" Ben said. He threw another Pokeball and a Blastoise appeared.

"Come on, let's go find this trainer," Ben said. Blastoise smiled and started walking with him.

Paige ran down the streets of Saffron quickly, if you saw her you would think she was late for something or running away from someone. Her pichu was yelling at her for her carelessness and for not fighting back at who she was running from. Her dark hair flew wildly around her as she tightened her hold on the soft bundle in her arms. Finally she stoped and spun around, her pichu hanging on by a paw was cursing under his breath. The man who was chasing her started to yell "Hey give me back my cindaquil you theif!"
Paige glared at him and responed "it is not stealing when the person mistreats his pokemon!"

Two figures onlooked the scene in Saffron. Well- four if you count the pokemon by the people's side. At an alleyway, they closely watched a girl with a pichu and a bundle in her arms running from some boy. At this rate, they figured that the girl stole it from someone. One of them was about to interrupt the scene, but the other told her not to. The girl with the silver hair placed on her sunglasses.

"Why don't we solve this, Serenity?" The older girl wailed.

"Shush Crys... Let that girl solve it herself. If she needs help, we'll give it to her. I just want to see what did she do...." The younger girl named Serenity whispered.

The two- er I mean four watched.

Gillian looked over her shoulder briefly. She saw only Venomoth, but she could have sworn there was someone else beyond the fragile wings of the bug. It must have been a faint rustle that had alerted her.

No, screaming. That was what it was. Screaming. And footsteps. Fast footsteps. Yet she couldn't tell if they were coming towards her, away from her, or nowhere near her.

With narrow eyes, she turned back around and shook the feeling off. She wasn't about to allow paranoia to sink in. Yet she couldn't help but remain tense.

"Venomoth," she said, "prepare to use Stun Spore."

ooc: Okay. Thanks!

" Yo a****le! Why's ya kick that Growlithe like that?! You wanna kick someone, kick me! I bet I'll give a lot better fight! " Peregine yelled into the face of the punk he was shoving up against a wall. The sniveling little brat couldn't even say anything he was paralized with fear. Finally he mustered up enough courage to speak. " Is that an invatation? Well I'll gladly attend!! " The little shrimp screamed and kicked Peregine right in the gut. Peregine just smirked at this.
" Wimps like you are just bullies, but when ya's get into a street fight wit me, " here Peregine paused to punch the boy in the jaw, " Ya's gonna end up with a busted jaw! " Thkid was on the ground now, crying. His work done Peregine turned and walked over to the abused Growlithe.
" Were ya's that f*****'s Pokemon? " Peregine inquired to the fire type. The Growlithe nodded and cowered against the alley wall.
" Wells ya's got it bad. But I seen trainers wit worsely abused Pokemon than ya's. Now here's some PokeChow. If ya's trainer gets mad a ya's just call me, got dat?" The Growlithe nodded fiercely and came away from the wall to the food laying for him on the ground. Suddenly a scream could be heard a few alleys away. Abandoning his earlier plan to walk the streets beatin' up uncaring punks he ran the quickest wa to where he heard the noise.

ooc: Sorry for the bad words but I had to think about how a gangster would sound. I prolly had it easy, some of my friends call me a gangster. Only some... I'm nothing like that.

Luna walked into an ally way. She heard a low rumble.

"Umbreon, come on out," She whispered, freeing her cat like pokemon. It hissed, it's rings glowing softly.

"You smell touble, don't you," Luna mumbled. She rubbed his ears. Luna stood taller, her Umbreon pearing around her dirty legs. The allyway was silent. Luna closed her eyes, moving her head to the moon overhead. It was a strange sight. The sun and moon interlinked, as Luna and Umbreon vanished, their bodies replaced with a small bit of mist.

OCC: Sorry I'm late to post.

Paige stared at the boy with no emotion "you want your pokemon back, then I will give it to you only if you promise not to harm it anymore."
The boy smirked at her "please, I will do what ever I please with my pokemon, that is what they are there for!"
Paige looked at him with discust her pichu's fur stood on end with anger. "Well then I guess you will have to take the poor thing back by force."
The boy sneered and yelled "go magneton!"
Paige let out her cubone and said "you know what to do....." suddenly the small bone headed pokemon let out a furious barage of bonearangs. The boy and his magneton ended up cowering on the ground. Paige looked at them showing no sign of compassion and said "so does this mean you give up lowlife?"
The boy nodded and ran off yelling "who cares the stupid thing can't fight!" suddenly the yong man was hit on the head with another bonearang. Paige chuckled softly, and returned the bold cubone "come on pichu we need to get cindaquil some help" pichu nodded and they were off.

Gohan
June 10th, 2005, 07:09 PM
Running through backalleys Peregine managed to reach the place of the scream quickly. He managed to catch most of the conversation. The boy with the Magneton had fallen as the bonerang hit him on the head. He let the girl run off to somewhere, instead running up to the boy.
" Ya's alright, punky? " Peregine asked innocently, leaning down. The boy nodded to confirm he was alright.
" Good, cause ya's gonna get it, ya's freakin' a****le!! " Peregine roared as he brought back his fist. Smashing it into the punk's face he stood back up. Now to return that thing. Peregine thought, glaring at the boy's Magneton. Picking up a pokeball from the punk's hand he returned the pokemon and let the pokeball fall from his hand to clatter on the ground. Now to run back after that girl. He started in the direction the girl had run off in. He decided to use the rooftops to find the young child quicker.
As he jumped from rooftop to rooftop, Peregine thought, Heh, heh. I got at least 20 dollars worth of PokeTokens from that kid.
Flitting across the rooftops took skill but Peregine was ready. He caught up with the child that had " Stolen " Cindaquill.
" Yooo!!! What's ya's name?! 'Till I know I'm gonna call ya's Punky! I liked the way ya's handled that kid! Don't worry, I smashed his face in!! " Peregine called down to the still running girl.

Paige stoped and wirled around startled at the young man running up to her "ah...... um, well thankyou?" she sighed looking down. Her pichu rolled his eyes thinking 'when she is in a battle she is confident but out of it she is just a wimp'. Paige looked down at the cindaquil it was paralized the trainer must have used his magneton on it to punish it she thought to her self.
"Oh, and my name is Paige it is nice to meet you!" she said remembering that he asked her, her name. Her pichu jumped off of her shoulder and on to the young man's head checking him out to see if he was 'safe'.

Sola's heart was pounding. Here, on the street, someone had commited a crime. She could sence it. But there were two poeple on the street. Sola swiftly jumped of the 15 floor building, landing on her feet.

"Go Umbreon," She said, throwing a pokeball into the air. Blink. A black cat appeared, it's tail flicking in the moonlight. The two of them walked into the street, unprepared for what could happen. A girl with a bundle was huddled up next to a young man. The young man had a pichu on his sholders, sniffing his armpits. Sola walked up to them, sitting down nzt to the girl. Weird, She thought, I don't sence anything from her. It must be the man. And so...

"Peregine," Sola whispered, turning her body towords(sp?) him, "Why did you take the twnety coins? He already lost his Cindiquil. Couldn't you tell how upset he was?" Clearly, Sola had seen the entire story.

Paige stared at the girl confused then spoke boldly "he did not deserve the pokemon, he was abusing it all I am going to do is let it heal and find it a good trainer......" Paige's pichu returned to his owner's side equally confused, he started to say something in Paige's ear and she nodded. Getting back up she said "I am sorry but I must go now." she held the bundle in her arms tighter and turned away from them. Pichu was on Paige's shoulder but he turned to face them making sure no one tried to do anything.

Kat stayed right behind Persian and Delcatty. She didn't know what could happen in this city. The two Pokemon stopped. Kat could see a figure in the distance. "Rem..." she said, looking at him, her eyes asking if they should approach the figure. Rem nodded. They slowly walked up to the figure.

"Hello," Kat said to the young man. "It's good to see another face. I'm Kat, and this," she said, gesturing to Rem. "Is Rem. Who are you, sir?" she asked.

The two girls walked onwards, looking around. The Espeon walked along with Crys as the Chimecho levitated around Serenity. The city of Saffron looked pretty dull and the building look tall. They feel like ants in this crowded slum of a town. They are on the lookout for more Rebels- just because they can't make the Knights of the Morning Star crumble on their own. But they have to be careful though- the walls have ears. They must not be found out- they must. As they were on the lookout they spotted a Trainer with a Blastiose. They were sure that he wouldn't mean any harm- but just incase, they have their two pokemon out for first defense if needed.

"Hello there. Nice day isn't it?" Crys said to the boy in a normal tone of voice.

" I took the coins cause I needed 'em. That freakin' a****le wasn't gonna use 'em soon anyways. And ya's come up to us and assume we're all wrong 'bout everthin'. Ya's make me wantcha bet ya's up! " Peregine was getting angry now. He had almost raised his voice to a yell. The annoying Pichu was on the ground now; he had pushed it off of his shoulders. " I gave that kid whats hes had comin' to him. He was a horrible kid, and I was angry! I had just beatin' up another kid that was abusin'! " Peregine was yelling now. He started to turn but then stopped as if something had just accured to him. Turning back to them he quietly said, " Are either of you in the resistance or the The Morning Stars? "

Paige's pichu was going to attack the boy but Paige stopped him. "I have no loyalties and I will remain that way until I see fit" she said her voice growing harshly serious at that moment. That was not a good subject to go on, because she was looking for her brother who she heard made it to a Duke's level. She glared at both people instincts telling her to run away from them. She took out a pokeball and captured the cindaquil so that it would not get hurt anymore. Her pichu was cursing at the young man saying that his temper was out of control and not useful at all.

Gillian was, to say the least, startled. Why would anyone simply walk up to her on the street and introduce themselves? Did they have any sort of motivation? Did they want to take something from her? For a long time, Gillian stared at the two in her intense skepticism, as if she were looking at them from all sides. At one point, she even leaned a little to the left to peer at them from a slightly different angle. All the while, her Venomoth flitted playfully about her head, and her Farfetch'd slowly (yet calmly) stirred on her shoulder. It was as if they were trying to tell her it wasn't as bad as she imagined it.

At last, in a soft, quiet murmur, something reluctantly crossed her lips, like a child testing the water in a pool.

"Hi."
