    This is the SU for my second student, hope it's okay.

    Name: Nika Valentine

    Nickname: n/a

    Age (10-15): 14

    Gender: Female

    Dorm: Suicune Dorm

    Appearance: Nika is slightly shorter than average for her age, with a slim build and short, scruffy blonde hair and pale skin. Her large eyes are a dark brown, lending a somber cast to her otherwise cheerful appearance. Nika favours wearing flatcap hats and boyish clothing, leading to many people mistaking her for a boy. She also wears thick framed spectacles that further detract from a feminine appearance. Overall, she could be confused with a nerdish, slightly quirky boy.

    Personality (How does your character act and react to others? Their mental state? Flaws and/or personal weaknesses?): Nika is a quiet girl who often keeps her thoughts to herself, preferring to let others talk or argue. She is happy to express her thoughts and opinions, but will not try and sway others. She believes everyone will hold their own counsel regardless. She is determined to become the best, and would prefer to train or battle than goof around. Although she likes to believe she will do anything to achieve her goals, there are limits due to a deeply engrained sense of empathy.

    History: Nika is from Icirrus City in the Unova region, the daughter of a chef (her father) and a pokemon trainer (her mother). Bullied relentlessly as a child for her reserved nature and unusual interests Nika grew up unsure of herself and with great insecurities. Her solace was pokemon, taking a strong interest due to the influence of her mother who had entered the Unova League on multiple occassions. Nika held a special interest for Bug type pokemon, which her mother disdained due to their generally being viewed as weaker than other types and best only for beginning trainers.Nika however admired them for their sudden bursts of growth and rapid changes, evolving from something initially small and weak to something grand, taking this on as an analogy for her own hopes. After her tenth birthday, when Nika hoped to start her own pokemon journey and leave behind the town in which she had suffered so much ridicule, her mother gifted her with an Eevee, an incredibly rare pokemon in the Unova region. She believed that with such a versatile pokemon her daughter may come to realise the uses of types other than Bug Pokemon and was horrified when Nika traded it for a relatively common Joltik.The tension that resulted between the two meant that Nika left Icirrus City on far more unpleasant terms than she had intended, to see Professor Juniper. The closer Nika got to seeing the Professor, the more her mother began to call her and resume contact, believing that since the Professor would only give her daughter a Grass, Fire or Water type and that Nika had chosen to go to her she had realised the error of her Bug Maniac ways.Nika chose a Snivy, and immediately sought out a trade, obtaining a Larvesta in exchange. Her mother has not spoken to her since, frustrated by her daughters wilfull stubborn nature. Nika understands her mothers position but does not feel it is her place to change it with words alone.Nika continued her journey for some time longer, catching a Shelmet on her travels, until she heard of the Pokemon Trainer Academy. Eager to leave painful Unova behind her and start a fresh chapter of her life and journey she enrolled, passing all entrance exams with flying colours.
