|History||Calcifer's earliest memories come from a Pokemon laboratory. The Scientists had taken him as soon as he hatched. He was the prime specimen, of course. A purebred Litwick, spanning back at least four generations. The Scientists had it all planned out, of course. Those first few weeks were blissfull, all the food Calcifer could eat, all the Scientists to wait on him, and the entire lab as his playground. However, once he was a good, healthy size, the experiments began. |
They lured him into it. Dragging his food across the floor, they brought him to a dark room in the back of the lab, one he had yet to explore. As soon as he stepped inside, he felt a sharp prick in his back, and only had enough time to spin around to see a Scientist above him, holding a large syringe before he blacked out.
He was never awake for the procedures, but he felt the pain long afterwards. Sharp jolts of pain around his head from where the needles fed different poisons and concoctions into his body. It was intolerable. He heard the Scientists talking one night, while they thought he slept. It appeared that the experiments were in order to find a chemical that would turn a Litwick into a perfectly stable and controllable fuel source for hot-air balloons. Inconcievable. He was being tortured, and it wasn't even for significant technology. Calcifer dropped into a state of despair during the next few weeks. He could find no way out of his living hell.
No way out, of couse, until he met Howl.
Howl was just another one of the Scientists, until the day he stayed after Calcifer was locked away for the night. Howl whispered to Calcifer, making an offer that Calcifer couldn't refuse. Howl would help Calcifer to escape, if Calcifer would work as a servant and companion for him. Quite excitedly, Calcifer agreed.
The next day, Howl was the Scientist who unlocked Calcifer's holding cell. Howl managed to hide the Litwick in his unusually large Labcoat. Quickly, Howl raised the alarm, shouting that the Litwick had escaped. In the confusion that the alarm caused, Howl and Calcifer escaped. It would seem that the Scientists were so sure that Calcifer couldn't escape, that they were unprepared for what would happen when he did
Calcifer lived with Howl for a while, and it was exponentially better than his time in the lab. Howl never worked him too hard, and mostly just had him for company. One day, however, Howl returned from work in a panic. He didn't have time to explain himself, however, because the door exploded into splinters behind him. A horde of Murkrow had attacked! In a panicked attempt to survive, Calcifer used the one move the Scientists had taught him: Overheat. Flames filled the home as Calcifer used up as much energy as he could. He was unconscious before the attack was even done.
When Calcifer awoke, it was night, and there was no one within his sightline. He was abandoned. The house had been completely destroyed by his flames, but he hoped against hope that Howl had survived.
|Appearance||Average sized Litwick. Due to experimentation, his flame changes color, with the natural color being the color of a normal flame. Depending on the energy he absorbs/uses, the flame shrinks in size and fades to a blue color.|
|Personality||Dislikes being manipulated, and can get a bit out of hand when enraged. However, he's usually pretty careful about blowing up, due to not wanting to wear himself out.|
|User Notes|| Based on Calcifer from Howl's Moving Castle|
Is looking for Howl
Howl gave him the everstone as a symbol to show that Calcifer was his property.
