History Zeke was born in Kanto in the Seafoam Islands, his father being a Quagsire and his mother being a Golduck. For the first two years of his life he lived within a large clan consisting of several species of Water and Ice-type Pokemon. It was an easy, peaceful existence, with the clan being able to access a plentiful supply of food and were rarely bothered by Trainers.

The security of their home was put at risk, however, when Team Rocket began to rise to power. After hearing that the criminals were planning to come to the islands to capture Pokemon and use them for evil doings, the clan left their home and traveled by sea to Hoenn, where they found a new home within the region's giant ocean.

Zeke was amazed by the sheer size of this ocean and wanted to explore it, but his laid-back attitude meant that he kept 'putting it off until tomorrow'. He very much preferred to simply hang around with his friends and eat until he felt sick. Eventually his mother grew tired of his lazy attitude and told him to either make himself useful or leave. Since Zeke was not one to choose work, he decided to leave. After all, it gave him a good excuse to go out and explore like he had wanted to since arriving in Hoenn ... and perhaps find himself a 'lovely lady'.

He said goodbye to his parents and friends and then set off on his own. During his travels he met several Pokemon who were all willing to battle with him. Knowing that Golduck were better and faster swimmers than Psyduck, Zeke accepted and continued to battle challengers until he evolved. Upon continuing his travels, he began to notice that the ocean was becoming more and more desolate. At one point a crazed Carvanha zoomed past him yelling like a maniac about an Epidemic of some sort. Puzzled, Zeke is now trying to find someone sane enough to give him the answers. Little does he know, he is getting closer to the human settlement of Pacifidlog Town.
Appearance Quite chubby for a Golduck, but otherwise looks normal.
Personality Zeke is extremely laid-back and easy going. He finds no reason to rush doing anything and very much prefers to go at his own, rather slow pace rather than keep up with everyone else. He loves to just do his own thing and doesn't really care about what others think of his easy-going attitude.

He loves eating and will consume almost anything he finds. Since not being entirely used to his new Golduck body yet he is a little clumsy and unsteady on his feet. He simply shrugs this off with a laugh though. He does not get embarrassed and simply makes a joke out of any mistakes he makes. Towards others he is generally friendly and is not afraid to show them who he is, but he does not like Pokemon who are selfish or rude.
User Notes --He has only recently evolved and is not used to his new body yet; tends to wobble a bit on his feet. However he is a very good swimmer.
--He has only recently found out about the infection and knows hardly anything about the undead or how they behave.

A few notes.

For a character that is the equivalent of a 4 year old, he would not be so high a level. At that age and mentality, I'd say level 10 at a maximum.
Much less would he ever be evolved. At age 4 he would still be very much a Psyduck, especially if he is 'lazy'.
Finding a mate at that age would be even less likely.

Most, if not all, of the snags revolve around him being so young but so 'old' in his profile. He is just a child, and most everything in this profile leans towards someone in their 20s.


Please revise and then I will look at for approval.

Well I kinda assumed that Pokemon had growth rates that were different to humans. ^^;

But I've changed it to 15, hope that's better.

The thing is, a 15 year old would still be kind of pushing it. For what you have, I would put him in his 20s at the youngest.

I believe the miscommunication is that you are thinking like people/dog years. The 'Age' box is for how old they are mentally and physically, not necessarily a literal age. There is no number like '7 Pokemon years for every 1 human', it is just an estimate of their development.

Take myself for instance: I may have been created 15 yeas ago, but the age on my profile (if I updated it) would be put down as mid-40s. Because developmentally, I am in my mid-40s.

All right, how's 22? That's around the age he'd be mentally.
