Pokedex entry -
It's proud and regal appearance has captured the hearts of people since long ago.
Ever since the day Xander was hatched as a tiny Growlithe, a young trainer named Jessie had taken care of him. Jessie was 5 when Xander hatched, they had practically grown up together. The pair grew into a very close relationship. Every day the two would walk outside in the woods, maybe go to a neighbors house. They stuck together like glue... and ducktape combined.
When the time came that Jessie was allowed to become a trainer, she refused a normal starter pokemon, and instead took Xander with her. They traveled, collecting badges, and also gaining new friends. Jessie managed to catch two other Pokemon, Chloe (a Ralts), and John (a Houndour). Xander at first was shy to these new Pokemon, but soon warmed up to them as they traveled some more. Jessie was, as described by Xander, John, and Chloe, an 'awesome' trainer. She treated the three well, oh, not to forget she was a good cook. Jessie, to identify her Pokemon as hers, gave them all red headbands, crafted by her own hands.
This was all before the epidemic. As the infection spread wider, Jessie and her partners were completely unaware. Living in a very isolated forest gave them very little communication to the rest of the world. Finally, one day the infection reached the forest. It slowly crawled it's way forward, the infected Pokemon hungry... very hungry.
In their comfortable home, Xander, John, Chloe, and Jessie were sitting on the couch, sleeping. A noise outside brought Xander out of his sleep. Before he knew it, the window burst open, and his friends, his beloved friends, were gone. John was completely missing, the shadows had taken him, and the Same with Chloe. The only one left alive was Xander. He searched their small home for Jess, and finally found her body, squished in a corner, bloody and mangled. Xander was heartbroken. He sat there for days, but eventually the stench of death drove him away from the life he once had.
Xander began a journey out of the forest, it was difficult. The dead were everywhere, lurking in the shadows. After one week, he made it out alive. Wearing the same red headband Jessie gave him, although it was torn, he searched for survivors, now aware of the fate that has become of the planet.
A red headband (well, more like a Bandanna, by he uses it as a headband, which is rolled up and tied :3), which is placed on his head (pretty obvious...)
[during the edit - fiddle biscuits! forgot to add the items! Dx]
User note -
Xander has never been much of a talker, most of the time he is fairly silent.
He usually spends his nights looking up at the stars:
My friends, I wish I could see you once more.
[Lost the file for the picture, and I'm not starting it from scratch. D:<]
[the history was done in a rush, I will go back and edit it with more detail in the morning. ]
