Quote "So exciting! You and your Pokémon's combination! Amazing teamwork! Places where humans can't go alone. Places where Pokémon don't think to go. You can go anywhere with teamwork. Between Trainers and Pokémon! Like you and me!
History Living in Alder's shadow kinda sucked for a while. Benga's father and mother were tragically killed in a car accident early in Benga's life, so he was raised mostly by his famous grandfather. Which in the most part wasn't terrible. Benga learned early on how to interact and even train pokemon, which he took to like a duck to water. However, people soon began to swarm him, asking him when he was going to go on his own journey, when he was going to beat the gym leaders and become one himself or even fight for his grandfather's old throne.

Well fuck that.

Benga soon found that he really didn't care what others thought. Even as a child, he did what he wanted, when he wanted. Fiercely independent, he left his home in the White Forest to pursue his own goals, whatever those were. The unknown didn't scare him, though-- he was far too excited to learn and grow up.

Even though he first fully intended on at least battling a couple of Gym Leaders, Benga quickly discovered that his real calling was simply living in the wilds. He loved every moment of it and frankly, didn't see a need to venture out beyond what he fancied. For years he lived out in the wilds of Unova, occasionally traveling to the different ecosystems of his region to see what his beautiful country truly had to offer. He fell in love with the life outdoors and completely planned on staying there for a long time.

It would be years later when something changed. There was a difference in the air, a heaviness. A sickness. The colors of his world dimmed as a shadow slowly clamped its jaws on the life around him and from that abyssal maw came the zombies. Disgusting grotequeries that shuddered back to life with red eyes and dripping fangs. Benga didn't need more than a second look to know that these things were trouble and so did everything in his power to avoid them. Unfortunately, he soon found that they were simply everywhere.

Luck was on his side, despite the grim outlook. Taking his pokemon and keeping his nomadic habits close to his heart, he managed to avoid swarm after swarm of infected by reading the signs of the world around him. Now, he simply keeps playing this dangerous game of hide-and-seek, somehow avoiding danger and death.
Accent American
Appearance Benga is a mess, but then again, he's always been a mess. With his life taking place almost always outdoors, he's given little thought to hygiene and visage, prefering nature taking care of that for him. Though one would think being filthy and dirty all the time would cause him to be sick more often, his immune system is extremely viable, making him a very healthy young man. The Epidemic merely put another obstacle in his way, as he already  dealt with living outdoors with hostile pokemon. Wild-looking with tattered, mismatched clothes, Benga looks almost feral. He has elongated canines, giving him even more of an animalistic look.
Religion Unaware. He was not taught anything as a child, and is not around enough people long enough to learn any while passing through. What he does know is very little from his own pokemon and even then, it's not truly a belief.
Personality +Upbeat+
 -Though Benga is aware of how awful life can be, he follows a strict code of "Onwards and Upwards". Allowing himself to be drowned in the sadness around him will only mean death for him and those he loves.
 -Disgustingly optimistic. When he's not, he usually is still bright about grim outcomes.
 -Has a very wide and varied sense of humor.
 -Happy with his life.
+Comfortable+
 -Benga went through a long road of self-discovery even before the Epidemic, finding his identity and embracing it. While he still has some issues because of his very famous grandfather, he knows he has, at least, gotten out of the man's shadow.
 -Is not afraid of death. He's lived in the wild for too long and has accepted that death is an eventual and inevitable outcome.
 -Oddly mature.
+Casual+
 -Doesn't tend to cling to social formalities.
 -Easy-going.
 -Patient.
+Friendly+
 -Though he hasn't had much in the way of social interaction, he does still enjoy meeting new people and learning new things.
 -Often generous and very willing to accept company. Lonliness does strike him.
 -Will go out of his way for a stranger.
 -Unafraid to cooperate with others toward a goal.
+Fiercely Loyal+
 -Very protective of those he's accepted into his life
 -The idea of betrayal is almost out of his capability of understanding
+Unaware+
 -Since he's spent most of his life strictly in wilderness, much of the technology that ruled the region escapes him. Hell, he's barely literate.
 -Functioning medicine, like potions and ethers, more often than not escape him. He prefers the use of berries, juices, roots and herbs for anything.
+Silly+
 -Because he seems to have an extraordinary amount of energy, this comes out in spades as he uses it for impromptu dance parties or games or anything else that adults would likely find exhausting.
 -see humor comment.
 -Can be mischevious, but never malicious.
 -Confident
+Curious+
 -Eager to learn new things and new skills, Benga is never one to shy away from a challenge.
 -This shouldn't be mistaken for recklessness, as Benga has learned caution from his many years of wilderness living.
+Genuine+
 -Wears his emotions on his sleeve.
 -Doesn't tend to lie.
 -Open-minded.
+Meticulous+
 -While it would normally go against his casual nature, his attention to detail goes with his routine, as well as foraging for food and water. He does not skip steps when it comes to the important parts of his day.
 -Even if starving, he will still go over his normal steps in food preparation. One false move may mean death.
 -Not wasteful in the least.
