    Personality (How does your character act and react to others? Their mental state? Flaws and/or personal weaknesses?): To summarize Dominique's character in the best way possible would be with the word odd. Dominique is a social butterfly. The boy loves to surround himself with people if only not to feel so isolated. Often times the boy will randomly switch subjects mid-conversation, jumping from one train of though to another and sometimes getting ran over by a train of thought. The boy is prone to dramatic freakouts if someone says something about him which he takes as an insult. Most of the time, the young teen is confident in his abilities but he can never quite shake that feeling that he's all alone in the world.

    Dominique is very excitable when it comes to Pokemon Battles and tends to freak out over whether he should switch in another pokemon or continue with the current. It's rather obvious that Dominique can go overboard at times about battle. Even though the boy loves to talk and socialize, at times he can be insensitive to the feelings of others. He's not a mean person for that since he feels horrible when he says something insulting to another, even if it's the blunt truth. It's like his brain doesn't have a filter to what he says so his words can sometimes come out harsh and blunt.

    History (Where did your character grow up? Who did they grow up with? What have the been doing before this? Any noteworthy events? What brought them to the academy?): Dominique lived most of his life in an orphanage. From ages three to ten, Dominique grew up in a little orphanage in the Unova Region just outside of Striaton City. The memory of his biological parents is mainly composed of a blur of images and sounds. The things that he can remember is a shiny object being held up, a woman screaming, and crying.

    The boy grew to be very depressed in the orphanage. Nobody seemed to want to adopt him. Many times he would wonder what was wrong with him. Was it his abnormal hair color? Was there something about his face that caused people to not want to adopt him? Were his eyes too grey and not blue enough? Similar musings like that continued up till his tenth birthday. That was the day that he was finally adopted.

    The man who adopted him seemed to be in his late forties and obviously came from Sinnoh seeing as Lucarios were not native to Unova. Dominique never asked himself why his father adopted him since he was just happy over the fact that he now had a father. The young boy quickly grew to love his father and his Lucario. Dominique was fascinated with his father's Lucario. It seemed to give off this aura of power which attracted the boy to the career of Pokemon Training.

    On the boy's eleventh birthday, his father, knowing about the boy's obsession with Pokemon, handed his son a Pokeball. Inside that ball was a Riolu whom Dominique named Ryo. From then on Dominique and his new friend trained. Dominique read up on various Pokemon Battle Strategies between numerous training sessions. For two years this continued till his father decided that Dominique was ready enough to be sent to Oak Academy. Dominique was thrilled about this. On his way to prepare for the trip, Dominique found an injured Zorua lying on the side of the road. Quickly the boy rushed back to his house so he could get his father's help in nursing the poor thing back to health. The Zorua quickly became attached to Dominique so the boy naturally thought to try and catch it. Dominique caught his boat a few days after the capture of the Zorua.
