Sign-up done. The name and history always seem to be the hardest things for me, compared to everything else in a character.

Name: Alessa

Nickname: Aly

Age: 12

Sex: Female

Appearance: Alessa, just an inch taller than five feet, usually wears a long, white sundress with a bright red floral pattern on it, matching rather well with her porcelain-like skin tone. Her waist-length blonde hair and bright blue eyes are tinted rather subtly, but still visibly, in green and red, respectively, as a result of joining with Sen. Instead of a ponytail, though, Alessa's bangs are braided back behind her head. Past the sundress, which hits just below her knees, is Alessa's long legs, with the same fragile-looking skin tone as her face and arms. Choosing not to wear socks, she wears sandals with a fur thong and insole for comfort. She's painted her nails an eggshell white, both fingers and toes, to blend with everything else. Alessa also wears a large straw sunhat whenever she goes outside, since, as expected, she burns easily. Surprisingly, though, despite her frail look, she has some amazing physical ability thanks to growing up with a thief for a father.

Personality: She's calm, collected, polite... and pretty dang amoral, or at least fluctuating in her moral standing. She'll help someone in distress one moment, and steal lunch from someone else the next. Aly's fairly sarcastic, too, sarcastic remarks taking up around half of whatever she says. This tends to make her come off as a jerk, but she really does care about people, for the most part. Hostility and kindness are both reciprocated pretty equally. Sadly, it leads her to getting betrayed easier if someone fakes their manners, but Sen's mental intrusions seem to make up for it if Alessa ever listens. That said, she can end up "blanking out," so to speak, if she has to deal with multiple authorities at once (among other situations) where she'll seem apathetic and avoid communicating with others. Her real specialty lies in quick thinking, though,

History: Alessa's lived in Hearthome City all her life, her mother and father both herbalists, the latter also an apt thief, whenever he so chooses to be. This all resulted in having a small surplus of edible food for the family. As she was growing, Alessa's father taught her his thieving ways, bringing her to the same trade believing she could make use of it like he did. And she did; not just by skulking around, but taking advantage of her fragile appearance and wide eyes. She didn't use it for herself, but for the victims of other families hoarding food. Her family had enough food, so why not help her friends? For a while, things were pretty smooth. That is, until her parents were killed in Nicholas' attack on Hearthome. Alessa wasn't aware that it was Nicholas who did the deed, so when the boy offered her a place in the town he now ruled, i.e., Children's City, she took it believing she could be useful.


Species: Kirlia

Nickname: Sen

Personality: This Kirlia has the soul of a trickster, but it's usually in fun. He loves to watch people and play pranks on them, but shares in Alessa's sympathetic nature and knows when to stop. He's not normally hostile either, preferring to avoid fighting altogether. Cornered, though, Sen tends to be somewhat more ruthless, driving Alessa to even killing if it means coming out on top alive and well. Sen also plays as Alessa's involuntary second opinion in the case of the latter being unsure of something.

• Shadow Sneak
• Teleport
• Psychic
• Magical Leaf
• Double Team
• Thunderbolt

Opening Post

Mm, breakfast. Alessa materialized back into Children's City early in the morning, having grabbed herself a few berries from Eterna City a few moments beforehand. This PokéSpirit thing was pretty useful. Keeping a good-looking Sitrus for herself, Alessa handed the rest out to some of the other kids before one ran out to her from what used to be Hearthome's prestigious contest hall.

"Excuse me, Aly?" It was one of Nicholas' buddies, and he had to catch his breath before he could continue. "We have another trapped in No Kid's Land," in other words, Jubilife City. "Got lost in Mount Coronet. Nick wants you to bail him out and bring him back here." So with a last bite of her morning meal, Alessa lowered her sunhat and Teleported out of Hearthome for Jubilife.

She landed straight up on top of Jubilife City's old television building. Guess I overshot it. Sen, any idea where this kid is?

Follow the stench of fear and pissed pants, hun, the Pokémon spirit responded, assuming it was from his point of view. The latter part of that really wasn't necessary, though. You could also just check around for the giant mob of adults crowded around one area. That was an easier task than empathy, as there WAS quite a large mob surrounding a VERY broken home. Ooh, Sen noted, let's use a combo this time. It's not as fun just Teleporting around everywhere. He did have a point there, so Magical Leaf was the first choice.

Glowing leaves blew down from atop the horribly-managed buildings, surrounding the house and everything in it in a multi-colored (albeit mostly green) tornado. An adult was inside, finding himself trapped with the child the mob was just about to condemn before he was swept off his feet and face-planting against the creaking wooden floor. Alessa giggled quietly, emerging from the old man's shadow. Shadow Sneak was always fun for tripping someone up. Double Team next, Sen? The Kirlia responded in agreement, five separate Alys encompassing the old man to keep him confused as he stood up while the real little girl approached the child cowering in the corner.

Alessa really didn't want to bother with being kind right now; the leaves were going to fall away soon. So instead of beating around the proverbial bush, she grabbed the fraidy-boy's hand and disappeared into thin air, bringing him with her.

I will be moving my account to Songbird over the course of immediately. The signature will stay as is for posterity and reference.
