History
History:
A product of accidental breeding, by a trainer leaving his Pokemon in a daycare for too long, she was abandoned as an egg. The daycare owner was a gentle old man who had a number of these abandoned eggs, and rather than let them be orphaned he decided to sell them to trainers he saw having trouble catching their own Pokemon. One day he happened upon a young man named Dean, who was running his own breeding ranch in Orre, and told him the story about an overwhelming surplus of abandoned eggs the daycare had recently come into due to forgetful trainers. Dean was heartbroken to hear of all the eggs left by trainers without the patience for hatching so he kindly bought several of these discarded treasures and took them home. His Vulcarona, Cira, was his closest companion and also his form of an incubator, using her Flame Body to heat the eggs that were laid at the ranch. It took several weeks, but eventually all of the newly acquired eggs hatched, including one special kit.

Dean was enthralled by the hyper little Vulpix, mostly because she was very bright had a very odd coloring, fur burning a near neon orange rather than the burnt coloring of her kind. With no idea how that could have happened Dean decided to adopt her as one of his personal Pokemon, training her every day so that she could evolve and hopefully pass down the unique trait. She was given the name Phoenix, since she was quite honestly one of a kind. Phoenix was a handful, constantly getting into trouble and causing several problems on the ranch, but she learned quickly. And despite her rather aggressive nature she adored Dean and always managed to get on his soft side when in trouble, so she was usually forgiven. Like most of her species Phoenix was always incredibly intelligent, but had a mean streak to her that concerned Dean at times. Anytime one of the ranch Pokemon did something she thought offensive to her, or harmed her, she would get back at them double. By the time she learned Captivate, it was a skill she had already mastered, conning others into giving in to her whims. The move simply gave her an even sharper edge in battle, lowering her opponent's ability to hurt her in a fight. Fairly self-centered, and more than a little vain, it took a long time for Dean to be able to trust her enough to evolve her.

When Dean did finally presented her with a Fire Stone, it was the happiest day of Phoenix's life. She had worked hard for this moment, and for her it meant that Dean trusted her enough to finally become part of the ranch. For a long time she thought she would be a Vulpix forever because of her attitude, and once she realized that her constant fighting was the reason she was still a Vulpix, she had set to work controlling her anger. Thanks to her hard work Dean was finally giving her a chance. Touching her nose to the warm, glowing stone Phoenix could feel its inner power flow through her, enveloping her in a brilliant white light that shaped and reformed her miniature form into one of a sleek elegance. But that was not all. Her evolution shocked everyone, even herself, for now her odd pelt color had once again shown itself to have no equal. Dean had guessed that her coloring would be a little...off, from a normal Ninetales just based on her coloration as a Vulpix but no one expected that there before them would be a bright blond Ninetales whose fur gleamed like gold with bright red tips on her tails. She was practically yellow! Dean was thrilled with the new development and set off immediately to find a proper stud for her, because none but the best would do for his rare beauty.

It took months. Phoenix would not settle for just any mate, and insisted on fighting every stud who came to offer their service. She defeated all of them, refusing them as mates once she did, and soon no other breeder would come to the Caldar Ranch for fear of their studs being maimed. Dean soon had to start looking into other options, and his hunt led him to an older Pokemon Champion with Pokemon for sale. As soon as Dean saw Erebos he knew he was perfect for his shining beauty, and quite likely powerful enough to take her head on in a match. Happily purchasing the powerful Houndoom, Dean made the gentleman a promise that any time he wanted to come to the ranch to see Erebos or his offspring he was welcome, and if he ever wanted any of the pups Dean would save the first pick for him. But, as usual, Phoenix made everything more difficult.

When Dean brought Erebos home Phoenix had already had a bad day, having spent most of it bickering with two other Pokemon who had taken a dislike to her rise in their ranch. Since her evolution she had shaped up quickly, and sharply, to being the leader of Dean's Pokemon. She had taken Kegan, Cira's only son, as her second and the two made an impressive team leading the ranch. To most. A snarky pair of older breeders didn't like Phoenix's aggressive style and challenged her, leaving her in an irritated state after their defeat. Seeing Dean bring home yet another male for her was just more crap she didn't want to deal with. Erebos was definitely older than her, at least twice her age, but he was far from old. He was in his prime, his demeanor proud, powerful, with a gentlemanly air, but sadly it was those very qualities that set off the already irritable female. Laughing in his face at his polite introduction was her first reaction, followed soon by a scoff and a flick of her tails as she sauntered off. Leaving Dean annoyed and Erebos pissed.

She never would have imagined the Houndoom would have the balls to break into her room and wallow all over her bed, but he did. Not only did he, but when Phoenix caught him he gloated about it, which is when something inside of her snapped. Phoenix wasted no time attacking the older male, leaving him stunned for a moment before he began to fight back. She didn't make it easy on him, getting more than a few good hits in before his larger form took the upper hand and pinned her. She was a flash of claws and teeth, going for his face in hopes of blinding the male and making him get up, but he was finished with her tantrum. She felt his teeth clamp firmly around her neck, a rigid pressure that with just a hair more effort would easily pierce her skin and bleed her dry. She struggled, a bit, against the hold but soon was forced to submit as his weigh grew heavy on her leaving little room to breathe. When he let go she scrambled back to her feet and moved away from him, eyeing him warily from across the room, but he didn't move on her. He stayed right where he was, watching her as she watched him. A silent understanding passed between the two and they relaxed, Erebos offering a courteous farewell before departing her room.

Phoenix became fascinated by the first male to ever challenge her, insisting on following him around and training with him in hopes of defeating him again one day. She didn't understand her obsession with the older male until nearly a year later, when confessed that over his stay he had fallen in love with the brash female. That sealed it. After his confession Phoenix had taken Erebos as her mate and could not have been happier, the depth of her love for the Houndoom a shock to many. They even bore their first egg after a time, and the strange markings on the outer shell left Phoenix and Dean with a hope that the child inside would be special like her, and he was. On his hatching a tiny silver Vulpix tumbled out of the egg and lay shivering at his mother's feet, Phoenix's heart swelling near to bursting at the sight of him. Motherhood had an astounding effect on the Ninetales, many of her sharper edges smoothing out and making her much more personable. Her little Nikkolai was the light of her life, and Erebos was a fierce protector of them both.

Sadly, not long after Nikki was hatched, Caldar Ranch was attacked by Cipher. They attacked in the dead of night and stole many of Dean's Pokemon, only a precious few managing to escape including Phoenix and Erebos. Dean had caught them in the act and tried to defend his beloved Pokemon, but one of the grunts shot him and the female assumed him dead, as Cipher began setting fire to the barn they left him in. The blaze soon spread to the rest of the ranch, leaving nothing but smoking ruin. Alongside their escape was an Arcanine named Nuri and the group tailed Cipher as far as they could, hellbent on catching them for they had taken Nikkolai and Phoenix would stop at nothing to get her son back. She and her fellow fire types followed the gang to Pyrite, where they lost track of the Cipher thugs and the others from the ranch. Desperate and forlorn they settled in that town, Cipher using it as a regular pass through to the rest of Orre leaving the group with their only chance at tracking what happened to her child and the others. Phoenix's natural gift of persuasion and her ruthless cunning set her at the top of what quickly became a gang of homeless Pokemon, Erebos as her new second until the found Kegan. They would steal from the humans everything they needed, setting up a makeshift den in an abandoned basement that served as their new home. Sometimes, if she was feeling generous, Phoenix would help out some of the worse of humans that lived their, so no one minded them much as long as they didn't cause too much trouble. But losing Nikki had left her bitter, angry, and more often than not left the humans to their own devices.

However, when the epidemic hit, Phoenix and her gang were forced to fight for their lives. Orre never had very many Pokemon, but the ones people owned and the few that lived in the wild went crazy and started slaughtering everyone. Eventually, the infection spread to her own gang, and Nuri was the first to go. The once beautiful Arcanine set loose on her former friends and, after tearing through their gang like tissue, Nuri came for the pair. The battle was brutal and after they became trapped Erebos was killed right in front of her, her mate struggling to defend her from their former friend. In her outrage Phoenix was forced to kill her only other companion from Caldar Ranch, leaving the oddly colored female alone. While she managed to stave off the attack in her den, Phoenix was not satisfied. Refusing to leave her home she fiercely guarded it, and was quick to slaughter any who try to take her or her den. Living or no.

*** But, as all things, it too came to an end. Phoenix had found a friend, a strangely colored Absol named Asche, and the unique pair worked well together. She liked the Absol and his quirky luck, but he was not the only one to join them. A young Vibrava, an old nemesis of a Persian named Raven, and several others had found their way to Phoenix, and she offered to shelter them in exchange for service. The young Vibrava, Kylie, she liked, as the child's gentle personality reminded Phoenix of her little Nikkolai. But the others, she never did well with strangers, but thankfully none of them stayed too long. A Smeargle had tried taking up ownership of Phoenix's town, forcing out a few and painting Pyrite with a hideous shade of green. He thought himself clever, trying to use riddles to make them 'earn' their survival, but after a few minutes Phoenix had enough of him. She probably didn't need to be so brutal when she murdered the maniac, but in her defense he was annoying. And no one complained really.

When Dean found her and her new little group Phoenix was ecstatic, rushing the human and desperate for his affection. She had felt so alone since losing him, and her mate, and her child...but with Dean her hope was renewed that maybe her son and the others were alive. Dean had already found Cira and Storm, which meant maybe Cipher hadn't lost his whole ranch to the Epidemic. The group took shelter in Phoenix's den for a short bit, but while she and Asche were out huntin a great beast of an Undead Mandibuzz, like nothing she had ever seen before, tore through her home. Fear settled into her stomach as a dark secret she had tried to keep hidden rose from the rubble. Erebos, her murdered mate, had become one of the living dead and escaped the prison she had tucked him away in.

Her mistake caused the group a lot of harm, losing more than just their home this time. Once he was safely trapped again Phoenix and Dean argued over what was to be done about her Undead love. She couldn't bear to lose him again. To try and stop the arguing Asche suggested the group try and find new shelter and more food, to which Phoenix agreed, only to come across a cat that was dropped out of the sky. His arrival set off a chain reaction that ended with the coliseum completely collapsing and the entire group getting separated, Asche and the strange cat tumbling down into the darkness with the old arena. Now she and Dean search for her missing friend, the female not willing to lose another friend. And with no proof of his death she refused to accept that he hadn't survived the fall, so she wouldn't stop looking until she found him.
Appearance Brilliantly yellow fur with tails that seemed almost dipped in blood, this Ninetales is a sight to behold. Her fire orange eyes tell of a strong and defiant spirit that has never truly been tamed and she almost radiates with authority and power. Her body is long and sleek, tails almost longer than the rest of her body, and her mane is wild and unkempt giving her an almost Amazonian appearance. She is truly beautiful, but her attitude leaves much to be desired.
Personality She is a master of persuasion, and finds great joy in conning others, however it is not always for her own benefit that she does this. It is easy to tell she has a very low tolerance for dumb, and such actions or statements make her very angry very quickly. Most of the time she comes across as a complete bitch, but there is a softer side to her that only those who really take the time get to see. The most notable thing about this Ninetales is that she is extremely vengeful and will hold onto a grudge for as long as it takes to get back at whoever "wronged" her (sometimes whatever they did is just in her head...). She will usually spare a living creature as long as they don't try to steal from her, but she is mostly anti-social and won't welcome them openly. Once she considers you part of her family you will be protected with a ferocity that rivals even the Undead, her loyalty to those she loves a power all on its own.
User Notes -Is still searching for her lost son, Nikkolai
-Is searching for Asche since the collapse of the coliseum
-has a serious soft spot for kids, and they are usually the only ones she opens up to
-edited slightly up level and reflect RP growth from old Pyrite
-Father was a Vulpix left in the daycare who had Extrasensory

History
History:
Dean was always a happy child. He grew up on a small farm outside of Agate Village and was surrounded by Pokemon. There, people and Pokemon lived together in harmony, helping each other and learning from each other. Dean was always good about taking care of the smaller Pokemon, and was still brave enough to tend to the sick or injured Pokemon that were bigger than even him. When he was old enough, his parents and several other villagers pooled together to import a Pokemon egg for Dean for his birthday, and when it hatched a tiny little Larvesta rolled out. Thrilled, Dean took to raising the small bug and his parents saw what a natural he was with the hatchling. Though he was still a child, they helped Dean to set up sort of a little mini ranch, and when Dean was almost old enough to go on his journey he started collecting eggs from daycares where trainers who didn't want them to start his own team.

After several years, and after he had gone through his own journey, his Larvesta evolving into a brilliant Vulcarona. He came home not long after his sixth gym in Sinnoh and settled down back home and started on his ranch. He had found during his travels many different Pokemon and found that he wanted to help get Pokemon of all species to any Region, especially Orre where they were sorely lacking. Though he had very strict rules on who could adopt from him, wanting to make sure that his Pokemon went to good trainers, his business flourished. He soon had expanded to over 75 acres where his Pokemon were able to be as free as they wanted before going to new homes, inventing a new incubation method with his precious Vulcarona as the center of his hatchery. Just as he was at the peak of business, Cipher struck.

They attacked his ranch, destroying almost everything and caving his house in. They killed his male Vulcarona and stole almost all of his Pokemon, though he did see some of them escape through the fences thankfully. But they saw Dean as a liability and shot him point blank, leaving him for dead in the burning ruins of his home. The only thing that saved him was his lovely Serperior who dragged him out of the fire and sacrificed herself to keep him from the house collapsing on him. He was found almost a day later by police and taken to the hospital. It seemed the bullet passed just over his heart and while still incredibly painful and life-threatening, he did manage to pull through. It took several months of rehab and surgeries, but soon he was able to be released from the hospital, though now he had nowhere to go. His home, his Pokemon, were gone. So with a new determination he set out to get back at Cipher and started heading to wherever they were seen active. That's when the Epidemic hit...

Driven into hiding with the other humans because he refused to give up his Pokemon, Dean almost didn't make it to Cipher, though he got lucky with his refugee camp. There were a few members from Cipher hiding out among the other refugees and he was able to pick up where most of them were hiding out, and that they had a new technology to help 'listen in' to the Pokemon. Deciding to take the first risk of his life he waited until they were asleep and stole one of the translators for himself. It took him a few tries to figure out how to work it, or even to put in on, but once he did he was amazed at what it could do. He could understand any Pokemon that he came across! It was amazing! Setting his sights to where the Cipher grunts had said their hideout was he began to make his way across Orre with his two remaining Pokemon, praying that he might come across any of his other precious ones once he got there.

***On his new mission he found his way to Pyrite, where he discovered his prized Pokemon, Phoenix. She had escaped along with her mate Erebos but it was discovered that the Houndoom had fallen to the Epidemic. Phoenix had hidden him away for fear of him dying permanently but he escaped after an attack by a massive Mandibuzz, attacking their small group and only stopped once his was entombed by a Rock Tomb. After a small argument with Phoenix their ragtaf group decided to split up and find shelter, but another strange run of bad luck had them running from the old Pyrite arena as it fell out from under them into the dark chasm of the Under. Asche, the Ninetales's friend, falling along with it. Joining with her Dean now helps search for the missing Absol, not willing to let the poor boy suffer if he was injured. And once they were all together again they would resume their hunt for Cipher, and Dean would get payback for the bastards who left him for dead as well as get his beloved Pokemon back.
Appearance Dean is very feminine in his body type, and has always been that way. But underneath his lithe form is an undeniable strength. He is almost all muscle though it isn’t overly defined, and he wears loose cargo shorts and a loose shirt for free range of movement. Keeping a heavy coat tied around his waist for when it gets cold and a strong pair of boots because he walks everywhere is essential for this young man. His blond hair is kept behind him in a loose braid and his bangs fall lightly around his face accenting his angelic face. His blue eyes sparkle when presented with a challenge and are usually soft and caring the rest of the time. He has a single scar just above his heart from where Cipher shot him and a few burn scars on his back from being trapped in the burning barn.
Personality Dean is a very caring and understanding person, but the raid on his ranch and subsequent epidemic left him somewhat cold and distant when it comes to bringing up the past. He is still very patient when dealing with stressed Pokemon, and often does not need his communicator to know how they feel as he is a natural empath. He trusts Pokemon more than he does most people, especially since his encounter with Cipher, but knows that like humans not all Pokemon are good.
User Notes
  • -is hunting for any remaining Pokemon that may still live that Cipher stole from him

    -Has a vendetta against Cipher
