*Trumpet Fanfare* Seth’s father has arrived!
Gulliver's hair hasn't always been the way it is, going from brown to silver, but he now accompanies the new color with a ponytail. He dons a beard- albeit more of a shade of very dark gray along the bottom of his face. He wears glasses, which fit neatly on to his oval face. He is at 6'2," sizing very nicely for his age. He is rather skinny, and although his previous attire would be a plaid blue buttoned shirt with the sleeves rolled up, the shirt itself tucked into his blue jeans tightened by a brown belt, he now wears a white lab coat with a solid blue t-shirt under it along with brown pants. He is about 50 years old.
Gulliver is a man who seems gruff, or like any other stereotypical grumpy old man (although he considers himself to be quite young compared to some of his prized possessions). This is the kind of guy, who, at first glance, you would expect to come at you with a rifle and yell "get off my lawn, ya' hooligans!" Not that he hasn't done that with just a shaking fist to amuse himself and his son, Seth Arosi, but it's not something in his nature. He's quite a pushover, if anything, and he is also a coward, proven by his actions when N came to take over Unova with the dragon from lore.
Speaking of which, he's a history and mythology buff, always telling the best ghost stories or the coolest legends. Many children have accompanied Seth to his house purely to listen to hear Gulliver tell of the day Zekrom and Reshiram were created, and of their might. He's also a lover of fossils and archaeology, because of course his previous occupation was as an archaeologist.
He's practically what we call a kind fool.
Gulliver was a funny child, his brown hair matted against his head. Humourous and a class clown, he would make people laugh and laugh when he went not only to school, but also at home (he lived in Castelia at this point). As he grew, his hair grew, but Gulliver didn’t cut it until it would reach his shoulders, where he would then return it to the state it was in when he was younger. The summer after his final year in junior high, his family moved to Opelucid. Some of his friends took him with them to catch Pokemon in the woods before they left. Gulliver joined them, and he found a Pokemon egg all on it’s lonesome, without a nest or anything. While his friends had all caught themselves Pokemon, Gulliver turned out to be the only one with an egg, making him the joke of the day. Gulliver didn’t mind. A Pokemon was a Pokemon, even if it wasn’t born yet. Was that still considered a Pokemon...?
Whatever. Gulliver didn’t care, and he took the egg with him to Lacunosa. During high school, it soon hatched into a Timburr, the Pokemon and him becoming great friends. Gulliver was changing, too. He had begun to embrace his studies, and lousy Cs became As. He enrolled in Castelia University, where he found a passion for archaeology, getting a major in the subject and soon employing himself to travel all over the world. During these studies, he traveled to gather pictures of the Abyssal Ruins, stone specimens from Dragonspiral Tower, and fossils from Twist Mountain. One of these fossils turned out to be a Tirtouga fossil, which he had revived successfully with the new (at the time) fossil revival process. It took a year to revive. During these expeditions, he fell in love and settled down, eventually getting married at 30 and having a kid at 35. His wife died a while after childbirth, making him depressed. Noticing the bitter coldness of his son, he began to notice the responsibility he had to take for his child. Although Seth is still a cold person, because of what his father did Seth didn’t grow up as he would have, instead being cold on the exterior (almost a self-defense mechanism) but warmer on the inside, so to speak.
When N arrived at Lacunosa, Gulliver panicked. This was not just any Pokemon, this was the
Pokemon of the Legend
. And so, like all wise but cowardly men, he gave up his Pokemon. The result was rather strange. When Plasma found out Gulliver knew a lot about Pokemon, they asked him to be their Pokemon Specialist. Of course, he would keep his Pokemon and get paid, and if not... well, that would be the end of him. Pushed into a corner but not liking Plasma’s ideals, Gulliver is staying a coward... for now. However, his son left when he noticed Gulliver would give in to Plasma, and thus left, leaving Gulliver with no one- except for his Pokemon. Gulliver, at this moment, is still stuck in Lacunosa, within the Pokemon Specialist building, which is complete with an office, a conference room, and a floor above for him to stay.
