Name: Reginard Asphos, "Chronicler of Tales"
Elemental Mastery: Psychic
Appearance: (Instead of paragraphs and paragraphs of information why not instead show this coolio picture I got? ^.^)
Personality: Why does one gain life? Why is one here in the beginning? Is it only because Arceus desires another to praise him? Is it because one has a mission that Arceus has destined them to fulfill? Or is it simply because one day a male and a female wanted to experience pleasure and they accidentally ended up with a new life? These are the questions that Reginard asks himself when he is allowed to only relax in the solidarity of his mind. When he is free to relax by himself he will ask himself such questions. He delights in pondering the mysteries of the universe. Perhaps if he hit the right thought he could unravel those mysteries and be that much closer to understanding Arceus' mindset.
That isn't to say that the Alakazam despises company. Far from it, he finds it fascinating to converse with another pokemon and discuss their thoughts on the universe and other subjects such as stories and rumors they have heard. Whenever Reginard comes across a fascinating tale he can't help but pull out a book to jot the tale down to share with those that possess inquisitive minds.
The one trait that the psychic despises above all else is ignorance. Not unwilling ignorance mind you, if the pokemon is unaware of a fact, but asks about it and wishes to learn then Reginard is more than happy to enlighten another mind. It is willful ignorance that causes his stomach to churn. Ignorance of certain pokemon behaving certain ways simply because of their typing, or of stereotypes of certain species such as a group believing that all Weavile are thieves and crooks.
Balance is the main key to a beneficial life, so Reginard strives to keep that balance. He looks down upon the emotion of anger. He has spent most of his life struggling to separate himself from his emotions and though he continues to fail he does the best that he can to remain neutral in spirit and help others do the same.
History: Born in Area 52 Reginard from an early age exhibited curiosity about all things. During his childhood he would crawl around to every place he could reach. He would grab hold of anything his little hands could hold and just spend minutes looking it over, touching it all over, just seeing what properties it held. When he got older he would teleport around quite a bit, much to the distress of his parents. He would end up in the food market or on top of houses just being inquisitive. The worst was when he would end up tailing the local scientists and just spend hours asking them all sorts of questions that were meaningless in their eyes, but were fascinating to the young Abra. This pattern continued for some time as he would spend weeks traveling around the city, gleefully outwitting his parents here and there to just be able to spend a few more minutes seeing what the area had to offer.
Even when he evolved into a Kadabra and was supposed to get into a calmer mindset he still bugged the local researchers about what they learned. He soon got into a habit of carrying around a blank book and a quill and instead of writing down the history of the area... he began to show a fascination with the stories and tales the travelers to the region brought. He soon began to develop a thirst for the outside world, so much so that he began to gather supplies. Although his parents feared for his safety and even forbade him from departing he still snuck out in the dead of the night. Carrying only a pack and his two spoons Reginard traveled around the world. He made his way to the various cities and towns, making sure to keep a book nearby to write down about his travels and the stories he learned from others.
By the time he had evolved again he had made his way back to Area 52 to bring the tales he had encountered. It was then that Elder Durand saw the potential he had in investigating the outside world. After many weeks of convincing Reginard eventually agreed to serve as a bringer of nature for Area 52 and this time set out to much further destinations. During his travels he made his way to the Vela Monasteries and during his brief stay acquired a series of tattoos. The tattoos themselves form special runes on his body that greatly increase the power of his psychic abilities such as giving him a much further range for his Teleport and lessening the stress his body accumulated from using his psychic abilities.
One day Reginard woke up... but had no idea where he was. While he did manage to regain his sense of direction he made a haphazard discovery that he couldn't remember the past few days. After consulting the various rumors and tales he had come across he came to the logical conclusion that he had come upon Uxie and the legendary had wiped a few of his memories away as a result. Although initially he was rather upset at the loss of those memories he soon began to appreciate the gesture as he realized he began to receive visions in his rest. Visions he theorized from Arceus himself! The visions mainly came into play whenever he would find himself in danger and they would help him in finding shelter or some other means of surviving.
Eventually Reginard made his way back to Area 52 where he continues to reside. Now more knowledgeable about the world he eagerly awaits the day for when he continues on another journey.
Moves: Teleport, Miracle Eye, Recover, Calm Mind, Reflect, Psychic
RP Sample: Penance smirked at them all in turn. Well, they were all mad, and rather to a high degree at that! Sir, the Gallade is already pushing away all the connections, like you said he would. Should we start him up on it now?
Penance closed his eyes, a small smile still on his bill, No, keep him still in range though. He'll be needed for later of course.
The Golduck regarded Truestriker, "Yes, don't worry Hanso, you defeated the big bad psychics links on your mind." At that the group of psychics chuckled lightly. "Though you should keep that defense up, it'll help you much later on." He said with a nod. "For now though, Paladin is fine at the moment. He'll be sleeping for some time though... or it could be shorter, depending on WHEN he wants to wake up. And no Zane, I have nothing to answer for. This is the way things start so for now we put that history aside." He chuckled softly, "And what makes you think we haven't been planning? That's what we do Vigil... plan."
One of the Alakazams spoke up, "Penance. They found the note, a kill all order is being ordered by the end of the day."
The Golduck closed his eyes and thought for a bit, nodding after a while. "Hm, quicker than I thought. Alright, follow me. Have strategies 48, 52, and 104 on standby. The Alakazam nodded and teleported away along with the rest of the psychics as Penance walked over to a wall and pushed against it, revealing a doorway, "Well come on Goldies. We need to get going." He stated as he headed out of the door.
Once everyone would step out they would see that the whole area outside was actually like a small town. There were houses made out of stone here, a small pond of water that was situated near a grassy plains with some trees on it to provide the oxygen of course, and lots of pokemon about. While it wasn't anything as close to having a population that lived up top in Cape City, there were still a bunch of 'mon walking about. It seemed everyone was busy at the moment. There were fire types heating up metal and fighting types using hammers to smooth out iron sheets they were working on. It seemed that there were several areas being dug into as psychic aided the diggers by moving away any large dirt piles that accumulated behind them.
The majority of pokemon didn't bother to awknowledge them as they walked past with Penance and the Golduck stopped near the a part of the floor and knelt down, "Alright, we have mapped out this part already, but we still are unable to find that gold crystal. It must be hidden." He stated. Right on the ground was a rather massive map. The locations of various tunnels had been marked on the map and there were more recent marks detailing patrol routes of the Ancients as well as new ways to enter the city above via newly dug tunnels. "Alright, with this map finding the gold crystal will be easy. Look it over then. If you need any help just call for Lashire, he should be around here somewhere."
He glanced over at another building. "When you all are done and you have the location head over there. Go in and you can shop around. Don't take too long though." He stated as he walked off and headed toward several other pokemon that were clustered around a board that had lots of writing on it and began to consult with them.
