Egg 1 [A shiny light green color] - Taken by Cameron Moore
Cameron and his twin Sylvia's dad left them after their mother died shortly after birth. They are (were) extremely good friends and could often tell what the other was thinking - until the incident. Nobody knows what happened, but it involved one of the twins and another student. Unfortunately, neither of the twins confessed to committing the crime - and so both were sent to the ranch.
Egg 2 [A shiny orange color] - Taken by Arcaray as Jaclyn 'Jae' Witton
Name: Jaclyn Witton. (Unofficially changed to Jae upon arrival at Richmount, feeling its 'fiery' meaning was quite apt.)
Age: 16. (Slightly younger due to an unfortunate combination of high intelligence and a hobby of abusing the chemistry labs.)
Appearance: Jae was never one to bow down and accept "ordinary" fashion statements, and from a young age she felt there were much more important things in the world than fitting in. Her appearance prior to her arrival at the school was significantly different from her current attire, as she grew up and away from her previous innocent lifestyle. Jae has round, reddish-brown eyes which feature a constant malicious sparkle, often accompanied by a mischievous smile on her thin-lipped mouth. She refuses point-blank to wear make-up, but if her skin wasn't so clear some may assume that this would be different. Her once long, golden hair is now cut into a short, angular hairstyle, and is dyed a deep copper. Her frame is small and wiry, her features as sharp as her wit. Her skin is almost translucent, as she is very much a lover of the lab and library; outdoor research has never appealed to her.
Jae's 'style' is a combination of her career aspirations, mischievous nature and keenness to stand out in a crowd. Jae wears a pair of black shorts much too short for a school like Richmount, over a pair of burgundy tights. These end inside a pair of white Doc Martens, which are scorched slightly. She dons a baggy men's t-shirt bearing a faded image of the legendary Ho-Oh Pokemon, which she longs to capture. Over this she wears a customised lab coat, jaggedly cut short and singed multiple times. In the pocket is a pair of thick-rimmed, square glasses which she doesn't need to wear, but feels it 'completes the look.' The sleeves are often rolled up, and the left one bears an emblem of the Volcano Badge. Around her neck she wears a pendant of a Red Shard.
Personality: Jae is as fiery as her name. She is very much a leader, and has a knack for influencing even the most dutiful of her peers. Her ability to disrupt a class is as much as a reason as any other for her induction into Summer School, and her quick temper a close second. Said temper is known to erupt unexpectedly, as Jae's patience is very short-lived. She cannot tolerate what she sees as incompetence, and as a result she will retaliate with offensive, sarcastic remarks which are known to turn even her teachers into states of blubbering Magikarp. This however, aggravates her even more, as she cannot stand weak, childish behaviour.
Jae is incredibly intelligent, but is very aware of it. This makes her condescending, boastful and very difficult to get along with in the eyes of her superiors. Her brainpower allows her to argue like a politician, and is often able to wiggle her way out of a sticky situation as a result. She is difficult to discipline and has virtually no respect for positions of power, regardless of the consequences. She will not hold her tongue for anyone, and will argue shamelessly with even the highest authority.
History: Jae was born and bred in Ecruteak City under the name of Jaclyn, to two patient and supportive working class people. Jaclyn's parents had struggled to conceive for many years before the birth of their daughter, and so they doted after their 'miracle child'. Jaclyn grew accustomed to having undivided attention from her parents, but as a young child this had very little effect on her. Jaclyn was raised to be polite and truly was nothing short of a delight to anyone who met her. She was greatly loved in Ecruteak, being one of the very few children that lived in the aged city. Her parents realised her potential and so she lived on a dream of becoming one of the world's greatest scientist, discovering the truth behind the legends of the magnificent Burned Tower.
After being spoilt and attended to for so many years, it was a great shock to Jaclyn when her parents decided to adopt a child. She was barely eight years old when her parents unexpectedly brought home a young boy, and introduced him as Jaclyn's new brother. Jealousy ignited within Jaclyn as both her parents and the people of Ecruteak began to shift their attention from her and onto the newcomer, leaving the adorable little girl with what she saw as second place. Jaclyn had to learn to share, and she was not prepared to do so. What was worse, was that the boy wasn't even that special. He wasn't as smart as Jaclyn, so why should he get the attention? It didn't seem fair, and no matter how hard she tried, Jaclyn couldn't get her parents to focus on her and her alone. It was such efforts which eventually led to her family's untimely demise, to which their darling daughter was solely responsible.
In a desperate attempt to regain her parents' affection, Jaclyn began to try more daring experiments. She would lock herself in her room for days at a time, only appearing to see if her parents were intrigued with her projects. It was when she was trying to create an item which re-enacted the effect of fire pokemon when she accidentally set her curtains on fire. She considered going for help, but instead she merely walked out of her house and watched it burn. If her brother was so great, he'd save her parents, she'd reasoned, and it was only when the house was entirely up in flames did she realise the damage of what she had done.
Of course, being only nine years old at the time, she was never suspected of arson. She grieved the death of her parents in her new school, where all the special people went, as she was told.
Upon arriving at the school, Jaclyn told the staff her name was Jae, and so she cut the ties she had with the parents she so dearly missed. After only one term, Jae was promoted to the grade above, where she learned that the only way to get attention was to fight for it. Jae had learnt the hard way that being brilliant was not enough to be treated brilliantly, and so she sought better ways of getting the attention she so rightly deserved. Jae attracted the 'sheep' of the class, those too weak to lead, and made them follow her into endless weeks of detention and punishment. Jae was seen as 'the one who got away' to the staff at first, as they tutted at the potential Jae threw away. Her blatant disregard for the rules and her uncanny ability to turn a teacher into a laughing stock meant that she spent more time in solitary confinement than she did in the classroom, but as she grew with age she grew with confidence, and ability to talk her way out of anything. Her mixture of science with misbehaviour led to the constant vandalism of school property, from the development of small booby traps to dangerous petrol bombs. It was on the third time that she had managed to set fire to the laboratory that the final straw had been placed: There was no room for Jae at Richmount Academy.
Main Goal/Interest: Scientist
Egg 3 [A shiny red color] - Taken by Fearless Love as Cheyenne Sharp
Name: Cheyenne Sharp
Appearance: Cheyenne has shoulder length, curly, auburn hair and midnight blue eyes. Her hair is often pulled into a ponytail, and is rarely ever seen with her hair down, except when sleeping. Her ponytail is often folded up to fit underneath a red baseball cap. Cheyenne stands at about five foot six. Her skin leans more into a lighter [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]tone[/COLOR][/COLOR], only slightly lighter than a peach color. She would most likely be described as skinny, and is more on the petite side, though she is not to be mistaken as a weak person.
Cheyenne commonly wears a long-sleeved, orange and white stripped shirt. The shirt sleeves are almost always rolled up to her elbows, and she occasionally wears a brown cardigan over top of her shirt. She wears light blue denim shorts. Despite the fact that she prefers to go barefoot, she does have a pair of white sneakers that she will wear in necessary situations.
Personality: Stated simply, Cheyenne is a smart mouth. She tends to be very sarcastic, and is very out spoken. She will not hesitate to say whatever is on her mind, and thus, she often gets herself into various forms of trouble. She will rarely ever admit to being wrong, and usually just shrugs it off when she is meant to do so. She is easily tempered, another attribute to the amount of trouble she gets in, and is thus prone to fighting, even physically if it may come to that. Despite her bad temper and sarcastic nature, she is actually fairly nice, in the sense that she is willing to help others.
Cheyenne strongly dislikes laziness. She does not appreciate when others do not pull their own weight, and will often take action to correct the act. Cheyenne will not openly admit it, but she is terrified of the dark. As a child, it was not a fear she possessed, but it had developed over more recent years. Cheyenne is a hard worker, and is always willing to do more than asked, usually as an attempt to cure her constant boredom. Cheyenne enjoys photography, and is thus often seen with a camera.
History: Cheyenne's past is generally common knowledge. Her mother died when she was still a child, and was raised by her father and older brother, Jayden. Her father spent a lot of time away, thus leaving her and her brother one her own. Her brother was always eight years older than her, yet he never left home for any reason, knowing that she needed to be taken care of. In the eyes of her father, Cheyenne always came in second to Jayden. It may have been because she was the youngest, or because she was a girl, the answer she didn't know.
Cheyenne had been out late at the lake the night everything was lost. Going out the lake at night was her way of calming down, and she had gone after a fight with her father, who had just returned home from a long [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]trip[/COLOR][/COLOR]. When she returned home, all the lights were on, so she didn't figure much was going on. Despite the lateness, her father and brother often stayed up at night working on some of her father's research. Though, not finding them in the study did set off an alarm in her head. She soon found out that her father had been murdered. Her brother, on the other hand, was nowhere to be seen. After the events of that night, she waited around town for a couple of months, searching for her brother. She never found any evidence that he had been killed, but he seemed to be missing. This night is what brought forth her fear of the dark, or more accurately, the night time.
Cheyenne decided to go to Richmount in an attempt to move on. Staying in the place she had been wasn't proving useful, and she knew she needed to get on with her life. At Richmount, she tried her best to stay under the radar, but due to her outspoken personality, this proved to be more difficult than she imagined. She constantly got in trouble, the reasons differing between arguing with teachers, to physically fighting with other students. The main reason behind her not graduating, is the immense amount of fights she was in, and the constant vandalizing of school property. The reason behind her vandalizing, is due to when people would refuse to listen to her, so she put her thoughts in places that couldn't be ignored.
Main Goal/Interest: Cheyenne's goal is to be a Pokemon Photographer
20 (he was held back a year and was on the older side of the class average anyway)
Valentine is rather tan in skin color, a rich color that’s light brown but not completely dark; just as if he goes to the beach every week. He has over the average amount of body hair, but as he is wearing clothing all the time it doesn’t really stick out as a feature unless he’s wearing a V-Neck or something to the tune of such. However, this does apply to his face, since he’s very rugged in the facial hair department. He’s surprisingly well-groomed. He has wispy black hair, which isn’t particularly long at all. Muscles are barely noticeable.
He wears a red-and-white checkered sweatshirt that’s well-fitted and made out of rough material. He wears the hood depending on his surroundings and preference at the time. He wears a white undershirt that is otherwise blank besides for the words “BOMB CAPE” written on it. He wears slightly baggy, olive-colored cargo pants which have a black loop of fabric going down his left side.
Resilient: He has a quite intriguing ability to recover from emotional stress easily and quickly, and keep his feelings light and content. But, he has a trouble creating tight emotional bonds with things and people (and Pokémon!), even if he means to; because this interferes with such ability. He can still have meaning to relationships, just not an unbreakable bond.
Honest: He has an inner policy to honest and truthful; to “own up” to things he’s done and explains situations in whole as others usually wouldn’t. The twist of this is that when he needs to lie or is trying to become a goal, he will use his honesty in funny ways to create a subjective truth so he can progress with something. Some may call this an ability to be misleading or deceitful; he calls this better than flat out lying.
Creative: He lets his mind wander to all corners of his brain. He loves thinking of ideal situations, plot summaries, characters, you name it. He’s very idealistic and a bit stubborn about his ideas; which can be crippling in a situation that calls for diplomacy. He possesses knowledge to complete goals and plenty of creativity to especially make something unique and effective, but he tends to drift into ideas instead of dealing with what he has.
Dark….?: Valentine likes thoughts and ideas of dark, macabre things. A bit morbid in mind patterns. And likes it. He uses this to point out horrible things in a situation and for his own enjoyment. This is also deeply rooted in his creativity. This aspect of personality seems to be catching up with him, since the more mature he gets, the more slightly sadistic he seems. Not like he would hurt anyone, but, the air of fear can come from really taking notice of his habits.
Talents: Information Gathering and Application, Creative Thought, Hands-on Things, and Drawing (to a degree)
Weaknesses: Activities Requiring Endurance, Time Limits, and Giving Sympathy
Habits/Foibles: An oral fixation and strange tendencies to shred up cloth and paper into little pieces if they are in his hands.
Before Richmount, valentine was put up in an adoption agency, and his parents were never heard from again. He doesn’t know his real last name. He would get adopted, but it would never stick, and he constantly changed house to house and surname to surname. His mind was his home, since the house he was in would only be there for maybe a year, tops. After his last home, The Curamos-es (which he kept their last name), the adoption agency sent him to go live at Richmount. He did decent there, being held back only once. He was usually too busy with his head in the clouds to take notes in classes he wasn’t interested in. He had a group of friends he hung out with, but other than that, a bit of a loner. Last year attending, he accidentally poisoned a ton of People and Pokémon because of a screwed up recipe he had made practicing when he was on kitchen duty for a culinary class. This outraged the Headmaster, who told him that this was unacceptable and highly dangerous, and that he was not quite yet fit out for the world of Pokémon. So off to the ranch Valentine goes, to learn more about the fine art of Pokémon and because he almost killed a chunk of the student body. But hey, we’re all human and make mistakes.
He’s mostly interested in becoming a Breeder, and a bit of a Coordinator.
Appearance: Joshua is a sheepish character with a just as equally sheepish appearance. He stands at a modest height of 5’4” with a petite and muscle free frame. His black hair is medium length and unkempt so that a lock consistently falls over his left eye. Joshua’s eyes are black like his hair and his skin contains the average amount of pimples that are typical for his age.
For his attire, Joshua prefers to sport a modest look because it would be awkward for him to attract attention. He simply wears a [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]white [COLOR=blue !important]shirt[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] and black pants with no particular style. For shoes, Joshua wears sneakers because they are comfortable and can tote him around. He wears no additional accessories, but carries a pack around with the necessary first-aid gear and snacks incase something uneventful occurs.
Personality: At first glance Joshua is one of those stuck up brainy kids. He can lecture endlessly on the many Pokemon and keeps away from people. In reality, however, he isn’t that smart or stuck up. His knowledge doesn’t extend that far past Pokemon and people just scare him. After a few years of being picked on in the orphanage, he’s come to have a great distrust of people.
On a more personal level, Joshua is tactical and lost in his thoughts. He often plans his moves and words in his head, but often forgets to act on them. When it comes to the heart, he is well-protected. He avoids people and covers up his flaws with a barrier of Pokemon knowledge. Joshua secretly wishes to make friends and to drop his guard, but doesn’t feel like he can afford to trust humans.
History: Joshua is the illegitimate child of a wealthy business man and his house maid. When his wife began catching on, Joshua’s father sent him and the maid to a private vacation home. She raised him for a good four years until his father hit a bankruptcy and could no longer support them. To save both Joshua and herself, the maid sent him to an orphanage where the remainder of his life before entering the school would be spent.
Joshua never got along with any of the kids in the orphanage. He was often teased and bullied which shaped most of his personality. A few of the staff noticed Joshua’s torment and so with the help of the academy, they devised a plan to take him to a better place. At the academy, he did much better. Nonetheless, he had become too reclusive and buried himself in the study of Pokemon rather than humans. While his grades and behavior were excellent in the Pokemon-related classes, he ended up at the bottom in just about everything else. The ranch “experience” was recommended by one of his social studies teachers.
Main Goal/Interest: Pokemon Doctor
Appearance(also in signature): Alice has very light, pale skin. Her hair is longer than normal, and appears very straight with no flips nor curls. Over time, the color of her hair has also changed from a brown to a gray for no logical reason. Alice's eyes are a darker shade of blue, but change into orange when the color hits the pupil. Overall she seems to have a dark image to match her personality.
She wears a long leather coat, and under it a basic white t-shirt on it w/ silver lined along the edges, and dark colored jeans. At her feet are leather boots to match her coat. Alice doesn't have many accessories, but she wears a chunky, solid chain necklace around her neck. The same kind off chains can be found on her wrists. She has many small and un-noticable scars on both her arms, but some can still be seen if looked at closely. Her most distinguishable scars are some burn scars on her left side, which cover her arm and leg. She is very thin, weighing 120. However, her height is 5'7.
Personality: Not very happy-go-lucky; if anything the opposite. Alice has a hard time communicating with people, and would rather keep quiet rather than share any information about herself nor her childhood. Instead, she finds comfort with her pokemon partners, and pretty much only those few pokemon. However, Alice is a hard worker. She's strong physically and emotionally, though not very clever when it comes to anything requiring a bit of thought. She opens up to few people, but when she does, you'll be lucky to have her on your side.
History: Alice grew up as an only child. She was spoiled by her parents very often, and she loved them as much as they loved her. Her parents were close to rich, both of them having successful careers. At the age of 5, her parents ended up having another child. Alice grew to love her new sister, and they got along very well, soon becoming the best of friends. Her sister was her life, and she cherished the child.
By age 10, she had just finished elementary school. Her parents went to pick her up, asking if she had said goodbye to her friends. She said yes. However, when they reached home, her father sent her inside to pack whatever she needed. Alice did so without question. As the family drove away, it was the last they'd see of their home. The child began asking questions, yet she was only answered with silence.
The family ended up moving to a distant region, far from their original area. Alice was sent to a new school, unable to make friends with many of the students. She became more distant from her educational life and ended up focusing on other things; her sister, her family, and a new activity she learned to love. Drawing. She was rather good at it too. Either it was humans or pokemon, she could make it. These small things kept her occupied, her mind off of the bullies at school, or the insults slammed at her daily.
When 8th grade passed, she spent most of her time outside, playing with her sister who also liked being outside in the sun. Alice felt relaxed, ready for High School, and to get a chance to meet new people. However, the good times didn't last long. About a week after her last day, tragic stroke the family. The news reported a house being burned to the ground, only one survivor left after the crisis. Alice was that survivor.
She didn't know why she had lived, nor what she would do for a living. She had no family, no friends, no house- nothing except for her chain necklace, and the clothing on her skin. Eventually, the girl found a school known as Richmount Academy. The school took her in, and she grew up distant from the rest of the students. However, the few people she talked to she loved and treated like her family. Alice could relate to many of the people in Rochmount, but stood quiet for no particular reason.
By her Senior year she had given up. Too lazy to do homework, she ended up doing other things to entertain herself. Of course, the girl finished having Fs all over her report card. But she didn't care. However, when she told she couldn't graduate, she freaked out in a small tantrum. Eventually she accepted her fate, and was sent to the Tripon Region to begin her work.
Main Goal/Interest: Artist
Egg 12 [A shiny brown color] - Taken by miley810 as Adriene Casscade
Name: Adriane Miona Casscade (I felt like putting a middle name.Though its totally made up XD)
Adriane stands 5"4.She is fairly fit. She has raven black hair that goes just below her shoulders.Her eyes are dark red. She wears a dark purple t-shirt with a blue jean jacket, and loose blue jeans. She weards black flip flops. (And if anybody gives a crud the flip flops are durable) She always wears her hair down, so the only thing she does with it is brush it. She also wears small gold hoop earrings, and a sapphire necklace. She wears dark red biker like gloves. (You know,the kind without the finger covering. ) Her skin is slightly tanned. Her nails are kept a little bit long also.
Despite her dark appearance, she's a fun person to be around. She isn't good at making friends, not because she's mean,but just because. Once she has became friends with somebody, she isn't really secretive. She, like most people, loves having fun. If she needs to she'll stand up for her friends and pretty much anybody else, as long as she doesn't hate them,and there isn't many people she hates.
She likes singing, and sometimes listening to some songs can change her attitude around. She like writing songs and stories also,so yes, she does keep a diary, but if its brought up she refers it as a journal. She will not take being made fun of kindly, else she knows they're just joking, and the person doesn't push they're luck. She almost never resorts to violence, but if she absolutly has to she will.
She never judges anybody at first sight. She always gives people a chance, and sometimes, a second chance if they need it. She is usually nice, just not peppy cheery nice. She will be the first to help someone if someone needs helping.
Adriane was born in Jhoto, New Bark Town. When she was 16 her house burnt down, killing her Mom, Dad, and twin one year old brother and sisters. The only reason she survived is because she wasn't home at the time, she was at a friend's house. She was devestated when she found out the house burnt down. She lost everything, and she felt helpless and hopeless. Her best friend and her parents took her in, allowing her to live with them where she didn't have to go to a orphange.
Adriane had to go to Richmond because she couldn't hold up a job. She figured if she got through she'd be able to manage for herself, and stop living with her best friend. It wasn't that she minded living with her best friend, it was that she felt like she was taking advantage of them. If she ever brought it up the argued other wise. She always did her best to help around the house, feeling like it was the only thing she could do to repay them.
Main Goal/Interest: Breeder
Egg 14 [A shiny pink color] - Taken by Sylvia Moore
Sylvia looks a lot like her twin brother, Cameron. They both have weird, light-blue eyes and jet-black hair (although hers is quite a bit longer than his). They both kept t themselves and their own group of friends. (for more see egg 1)
Personality: Jewel is a loner, not very good with people. She gets into fights often because people won't leave her alone after she's asked them. Once you get to know her, Jewel is one of the most kind, gentle, loyal, protective people you could ever meet.
History: Jewel was born into a rich family. She craved her parent's attention, but never got it unless she did something bad. She attended Richmount because her parents didn't want to teach her themselves. She wasn't happy about going to Richmount and caused quite a stir. When she was 15, she'd already been in more school fights than most children get into in the 12 years they attend school. Jewel is a very smart girl. She could easily ace every test and homework they gave her. However, school bored her. So she never applied herself. She flunked out her senior year, and her parents disowned her. She was left with about $500,000 and the clothes on her back. They moved to an unknown region, where they ended up in a terrible accident. Jewel wasn't all that upset about her parent's deaths, considering that she was taken care of by the servants more than her own family. So Jewel ended up going to the place where all the kids went when they flunked out or got thrown out. The Pokemon Ranch.
Main Goal: Trainer, Breeder and possibly Coordinator.
