Well, after my tired butchery of my last app, I've decided to scratch my last character and come up with a fresh one, and this one I've actually put some thought into, and consulted partially with yellow about, so hopefully It'll be much better.

Name:Tetsu

Nickname (Optional):

Age (10-13):10

Sex (Male or Female):Male

Appearance (A picture can be provided instead of a description if you so wish.): Tetsu's small in size with light green hair and eyes. On either side of his neck, he has two light red disks protruding from him that are very similar to the plate-like horns found on a Ralts. For clothing, he wears a white shirt that is slightly too large for him, and a pair of baggy, blue shorts. He generally walks around barefoot, preferring to feel the ground beneath his feet. He's also rather scrawny for one of his age.

Personality (How does your character act and react to others? Their mental state? Flaws and/or personal weaknesses?): Tetsu is a very kind and warm-hearted person, always ready to give out a smile. Caring very little as to whether you're an adult, a child, or another pokespirit wielder, he'll do his best to show you as much kindness and respect as he would anyone else, so long as you aren't out to harm him or one of his friends. Though he's generally peaceful and would like to avoid battle, he is in no way a coward and if his or another's life is in danger, he'd dive into battle in an instant. As well as being kind, he also has quite the adventurous spirit, always wanting to see the world beyond the horizon. One of his greatest flaws, however, is that he is far too trusting. It's not very hard to lead him into a trap or bend him to your will if you do so under the guise of helping people, or mere friendship.

History (Where did your character grow up? Who did they grow up with? What have the been doing before this? Any noteworthy events?): Tetsu was born into Eterna city. His mother was a kind and gentle woman, yet his father never seemed to be around. He lived happily with his mother in Eterna until the age of 6 when she died to a cancer-like disease that had been ravaging her body for several years. One of his ancestors was a professor, and before the world fell apart, he passed on his research in the form of a journal to his children, who then passed it to his mother, and now, his mother chose to pass it on to him. The contents of the book were nothing too special, just bits of information on the long-dead pokemon that roamed the lands, but upon reading it, Tetsu was instantly mesmerized. After she had passed, Tetsu joined a group of wandering poke-spirit wielders--though he had yet to obtain his own pokespirit--for another two years after that until resources began to dwindle and they left him, the weakest member, alone. By that time, he could more-or-less handle himself, however, and spent some time wandering around sinnoh until eventually he came across Mt. Coronet. Feeling adventurous, he climbed to the top of the mountain where he fused with his Pokespirit, Ralts. After obtaining his partner, he then headed to the "Children's City", realizing that in his current state, that would be the only place he would truly be accepted.

Pokéspirit (No legendaries. Alternate color schemes are allowed.)
Species:
Ralts

Nickname (Optional):

Personality (Can be as short or long as you want):Ralts has a very similar personality to Tetsu in being very kind and gentle. The only real difference between the two is that Ralts is quite a bit wiser than him, often-times advising him of possible trouble.

Moves (Maximum of 6. TM and egg moves are allowed. These are the moves your character gets when they fuse): Double Team, Psychic, Magical Leaf, and teleport. (All taken right from Ralts' wiki page)

Other (Optional): Though not in the white pokedexes, in most pokedexes, it states that ralts has the ability to detect a person's emotions through the plate-like horns on its head. Considering Tetsu has those horns on his neck, I would like to give him a similar ability if it's not too much trouble.

Opening Post (This will be what we use to determine whether your writing skills are good enough. If accepted, you may feel free to copy paste your post here into the IC thread.): Tetsu slowly began to awaken after a long night's sleep, his eyes slowly peeling apart and letting a clear view of the ceiling seep through. After simply lying in bed for a few moments, he pulled himself up and off of the small, rough cot he was sleeping on. Shooting Ralts a quick metal "Good Morning", he then turned his gaze to the room around him only to see that the rest of the children were still a sleep.

For several months, he had been sharing a small house on the edge of the Children's City with several other occupants, making the best of what he had available. In such dangerous times, there was safety found in numbers, and considering his fairly mediocre skills in battle, he had no choice but to find a group of his own.

Quietly making his way out of the building, he walked around the side and plopped himself down beside a tree. Then, reaching into his pants, he pulled out his great grandfather's old journal and began to flip through the familiar pages, taking in the many sketches of pokemon long dead. Coming across a picture of a Ralts, he began to smile, giving his partner a mental nudge.

You were tiny back then, he mused, only getting a warm surge of emotion as a reply. Ralts rarely spoke.

A thoughtful expression crossing his face as a though entered his mind, he pushed further.

Will you ever be like that again?

At this, Tetsu could feel a sea of emotion erupting from his partner. Taking a few moments to think it over, Ralts gave him a reply in his high-pitched mental voice.

It depends on humanity, I guess. You caused this, and it'll be like this until Arceus changes his mind.

Leaving the conversation at that, Tetsu resumed flipping through the book, the idea of pokemon returning in full weighing heavily on his mind.
