    ((I can add more to the opening post if needed, had to finish it a bit quickly!))
    Name: Nika Valentine

    Nickname: Spider

    Age (10-13): 13

    Sex (Male or Female): Female

    Appearance (A picture can be provided instead of a description if you so wish.): Nika is an athletically built young girl, adapting well to the awful conditions of her life. While other children in Eterna City have grown weak through over-work and mis-use, Nika has grown strong from constant exercise. With brown eyes and short brown hair she looks largely unremarkable, being somewhat below average height for a girl her age.

    When Nika is fused with her pokespirit however, her body changes considerably. Her hair stands on end and becomes a striking blonde with streaks of blue, while her eyes turn entirely blue. Four new simple eyes open up on her forehead, also entirely blue but smaller then her own original pair. Her teeth and fingernails become sharper and slightly longer, lending her a more predatory appearance, with her fingernails also turning blue.

    Personality: Nika was always a very quiet girl, living in fear from the wrath of her parents and other adults. When she fused with her Pokespirit however a radical change went through her. She is now sly, cunning and predatory, looking to take advantage of situations wherever possible. Preferring ambush to attack and persuasion to punishment she is a fairweather friend and untrustworthy ally, unless you can tempt, bribe or threaten her sufficently to ensure co-operation.

    History: Nika grew up in Eterna City with her parents and was treated miserably almost every day of her life. They regretted having her and only their last vestiges of conscience prevented them from abandoning her. Nika often wished they would, suffering regular beatings and only allowed to eat occassionally. She prayed every day for a way to become strong enough to fight back or leave what she considered captivity, though if she had ever worked up the courage to run away, no one would have stopped her.

    This was proven one night after the cataclysm of Mount Coronet when Nika left her parents house at the age of ten and made the long journey to the mountains crystal formation. The journey was largely made in a trance, and she remembers little until she had fused with her pokespirit. By that point she was on the verge of exhaustion and starvation, her feet bloody and raw from the trek. She vanished into the wilderness after fusing with her pokespirit, and wasn't seen by anyone that survived for some time.

    She lived feral for a year, ambushing lone travellers and feeding on their corpses. Growing strong from the hunt, the kill and the feed only when she felt she was ready did Nika return to Eterna City in the dead of night. She was discovered the next morning in her parents house, gnawing on what little remained of them. Overpowered by a large group of adults Nika was forced into slavery, used primarily to scale walls and carry heavy loads.

    While the other captive pokespirit children around her grew weak from exposure, starvation and exhaustion Nika seemed to be growing stronger. With a mixture of her ingenuity, stealth, mobility and survival skills she had been stealing extra food from both the adults and the other children, allowing her to survive while those around her fell. Living in this way for two years she waited every day for a chance to strike at Earnest MacKenzie. Taking out such a prominent adult figure would earn her brownie points with Nicholas in Children's City, and maybe even Lizzy Borskon. Why leave without prospects?

    Nika was finally caught in the act of her thievery however, and now must escape Eterna City with exactly the thing she feared most. Nothing.

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

    Nickname (Optional): Spider

    Personality: Spider is a natural predator, encouraging Nika to survive at all costs and assert herself. The pair are beginning to develop a hive mind, becoming less and less distinguishable from the other with each passing day - to the point where Nika herself now prefers the moniker Spider.

    Moves: Electroweb, Slash, Poison Jab, Agility, Bug Bite, Electro Ball

    Opening Post :

    Nika was hidden in the corner of an abandoned office, although her corner was on the ceiling rather than the floor, her pokespirit allowing her the ability to walk on and scale vertical surfaces with ease. From her vantage point she could see anyone who came in through the door before they saw her, allowing her to get the drop on them. Since she had been discovered stealing food from the adults she'd been left with no choice but to kill the guard who had caught her. Since then she had been running from the adults for the better part of a day now, and was yet to find a clear way out of the city. With a deep breath she steadied herself and waited for potential prey.
