History Rokai was born in a very small forest secluded away from almost everything. Unlike other houndour of his breed, his fur was completely ash-colored, a defect that had been passed down from his mother. From the very moment he hatched, there were only the three of them, his mother and father were both houndooms, but only his mother showed him affection. His father was always cruel to both of them. His mother never had time to stop and play, as his father always sent her away to hunt or collect items for hoarding and future use. Many of these items were rounds disks that his father used on himself by pressing them to his head. One time, his father ignored the two disks that his mother had brought home, so copying his father, Rokai pressed them to his head, not knowing what they did.

Another downside to his mother being away all the time was the fact that his father always wanted him to get stronger, and would get his mother to bring home live pokemon, which his father would pit up against him. More often than not he lost, with the pokemon being much higher leveled than he was. There were countless days where he would lay in the corner of the den, believing that his mother still cared enough to give him those disks, because she must have known that his father didn't want them.

One day his mother didn't come back from a hunting trip. His father was furious calling her a wimp and that she'd run away. Because she was gone, his father had to do all the hunting, except because he hadn't needed to hunt for a while, he was terrible at camouflage and ended up getting caught by a trainer, leaving Rokai all alone. He waited there for days, hoping for one of them to come back and say it was going to be okay.

When he finally had to move, the world around him was very different. Many places were deserted and pokemon that looked positively dead walked around everywhere. He fought off as many as he could, the extra skills he had picked up from the battles his father had forced upon him gave him a slight advantage, and he eventually climbed his levels until he evolved. When he evolved, it wasn't a pleasant feeling, yet it didn't hurt either. Another bone sprouted from his back, joining the other two that wrapped around his ribcage. A second bone came from the middle of his neck, wrapping around the front of his chest, in front of his forelimbs and lastly a skull formed between the first two bone protrusions at his chest.

His fur however stayed completely ash colored, not gaining any orange to it at all, just like his mother. With his new form he was able to fend back more zombie pokemon, fleeing the safety of the place he one called home.
Appearance Rokai has a hunched posture, and multiple scars along his muzzle and flanks. His pelt is completely ash-colored, with no orange markings at all. He has a few chips on the bone on his back, and a few on his horns from constant battles that were carried over when he evolved. Around his eyes have tear stains, and his eyes are a bright emerald green. The skull on his chest has a large crack on the right 'eye' of the skull, from a scar that was carried over when he evolved.
PersonalityRokai is distant, and often times sad. If there is anyone around him that is upset, sad or even borderline suicidal, he'll do his best to cheer them up. He believes that the Epidemic is just another way to try to smother the hope in pokemon. He understands how it feels to be lost and he uses his own experiences to show other pokemon that there is always someone who cares. Despite his kind and caring nature though, if he is pushed too far or he is attacked, he'll flip a switch and become fairly sarcastic and snappy, this is a trait he got from his father, as much as he'd hate to admit it.

You obviously have a lot of homework with this profile.

For starters, you seem to know nothing about the species at all. Bone-like accessories? Bracelets? Orange 'highlights'? You may want to do a lot of research on Houndooms before trying to pass a profile about them.

Point number one. Houndour are small, puppy like Pokemon with orange bellies (which you try to say they don't have which is wrong), a skull helmet on their heads, and two outer rib bones. You try to claim they only have one. Also wrong.

You try to say that his father beat him relentlessly to make him stronger and seem to try and use this as a premise for one or two measly battles giving rise to his evolution as a Houndoom. I have to say that this should be impossible. It goes without saying that the father would never have let himself lose to his child so therefore the child must have lost every time and a Pokemon gains zero experience from losing a battle. They aren't Saiya-jin.

On the note of Houndooms those aren't 'bone-like accesories'. They are bone.  They are bone so therefore they are the color of bone. There is no silver anywhere on any Houndoom unless it is a shiny. So the 'odd' coloration you note of their 'bracelets' (not bracelets by the way, just more armor physically attached to their body and not removable without much blood and pain) being the color of bone is actually what color they are supposed to be. Not unique. Completely normal. A silver Houndoom is the weird one not white bone.

The only thing odd about your entire character is that it doesn't have the doberman rust color on its belly and muzzle that Houndoom does. Which, since you mention Houndour don't yet they obviously do, would have had to have been a defect since birth. Something you should have mentioned in early history but there is not mention of.

Lastly, your image. It is against our rules to use any image not drawn on and for this site without express permission from the artist. You are not allowed to just Google an image and color it unless in the original artists page it states free to use. In your case I found the image you use here and the artist clearly states in the description
hexasylum wrote:NO ONE SHALL USE THIS BUT TWILITTIGER.
Unless you provide proof that the artist allowed you to use this image then it is banned from the site and you will have to provide a new image before approval will be allowed.


Please revise.

A reference you make in your User Notes stating that Houndoom are known for bringing despair and doom is wrong. That is Absol. Houndooms are only creepy and people are intimidated by their howls. There is no mention anywhere in any entry or descriptions that Houndoom are known for the same thing as Absol.

That is my only note.

While the profile is fixed it seems I overlooked that you do not have a spare shiny ticket to activate. Please reply once the ticket is on your profile.
