Gimmiepie I kind of revamped Hark's personality to better match how he is being RPed and to clear up come areas I felt I didn't present well... Here is the revised version... should I edit the SU or not allowed?
Most of the changes are at the end... the idea is not to CHANGE Hark but make his SU display his character better. I feel like I stumbled a little when I first wrote it (which is often the case for me).
Personality: Hark is a determined individual with a level of genius when it comes to technology. Much of this knowledge is due to his obsessive level of curiously and a desire to create. He is constantly testing equipment, dissecting it, and enhancing things he finds. He has made good friends with several inventors as well as hackers/programmer, who he is constantly mining for knowledge. He has risked his life many a time and has caused himself many wounds over the years from his passion, but this hasn’t stopped him. He is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve his goals even it that means risking his own life. However due to his one track mine is knows very little about Pokemon, training them, and why so many people are so obsessed with them.
Hark is quick to judge others and quickly decides if someone is worth his time and intelligence to engage. Hark bases these on his own values self reliance, intelligence, and innovation. He can’t stand the basic trainer mentality and thinks of them as mindless cattle to the league, and that they waste any real potential they could have had in his mind. As you can guess this view and the actions that comes from this view means he doesn't have many friends among his peers.
Hark also has a great desire for self reliance and prefers to never need the help of others. This leads to a level of pride and his “I can do it myself I don’t need help” attitude. This drives a darker side of his technological obsession: weapon research and development. There is no doubt even the smallest of Pokemon can easily defeat and kill the greatest human fighters. However Hark desires to create a way to give humanity a fighting chance if they ever need it. He jokingly calls this humanity “evolving” to become stronger. He doesn’t care that such measures are frowned upon as he sees humanity’s over reliance on Pokemon to survive as a symbol of humanity’s weakness. He does consider the law and any weapons he does work on is often hidden within another machine (like his arm).
Due to his dislike of current society he has no issues bending or even breaking the rules to see his own goals met. He fully believes in the end justifies the means when it comes to his vision of a new world. This makes him dangerous when this is mixed with his genius, and a level of uncaring he has toward pokemon and people he deems “worthless.”
Despite his own desire for self reliance he is quick to protect those closest to him from harm. Hark is quick to form bonds with both people and Pokemon if he lets his guard down, and he knows this. He strives to keep himself in isolation and not to get emotionally invested in his pokemon. This makes him come off as a cold and uncaring person. However if someone can get past this and actually befriend Hark, you will find the good hidden in his heart. To those he values Hark has a deep level of caring for, and will try to protect them the best he can.
Hey doesn't seem like red or TD are interesting in taking one of Hark's Pokemon so if you want to take Lannia you can... unless I missed something... Zen took Nara so at least one is taken by a PC. Though Lannia's reaction will he more dramatic than Nara's :p
Ok got approval from the other GM quick question though do you want her only to be to communcate with Hark or others as well? Also what are the rules on NPCs? I have an idea for a strange on who interacts with Hark at some point.
Hey just wondering did you every talk to the other GM about allowing Hark's first Pokemon to learn how to speak the human's language? I was going to mention her desire to learn it in my next post so wanted to see if it was possible.
