He was caught as a Pansear, by a biker trainer by the name of James. The little Pansear became James' joy soon after he caught him and James' adorned him in a black leather vest way too big for his size, gloves he would wear when he got bigger, and a pair of awesome shades. His new name was Harley.
The rest of the team saw him as a spotlight-stealing pest since he came about because he was James' favorite. They would beat him up before he knew how to defend himself, since he was untrained. Even socializing with them ended up in ridicule, so he didn't bother, and it left him alone most of the time. So he didn't hone any social skills for most of the time he was with the party.
As time went on, Harley had battled enough to evolve. James finally was able to fit him with the gloves, his vest fit, and his glasses made him look like - what he thought was - a badass motherfucker. For whatever he didn't make up in social skills, he made up learning vanity and cockiness in his own loneliness and praise from James. Since his hair was so thick, James also gave him one of his hair combs, and he learned how to use it (in a quite ridiculous, dramatisized 50's greaser way.) Harley was closer to James than ever before since evolution and the team members hated him more for it. Even with being able to defend himself, numbers outweighed fighting ability and he was beaten further into seclusion. He hardened and got more defensive to any small remark whether it was harmless or not.
After a long time of closeness and happiness, James and Harley eventually started getting more distant. James started leaving his Pokemon at home, which only intensified Harley's existing problems, and made him start resenting James for letting him be beaten. One night, James left Harley out of his Pokeball to have the house on his own as he went out. Unknowing to Harley, he had finally learned of the other Pokemon's abuse against him, and felt so immensely guilty, but couldn't say more because he had to rush out of the house.
James never came back. Harley stayed there for three days, waiting for him to come back but also beginning to starve in the process when he ran out of food. After he accepted that James was... never coming back, he decided to leave with his heart empty; but still steely like usual. Before leaving, he remembered his 'partners' were still trapped in their Pokeballs on the bed. Didn't take him a second thought to simply leave, but the guilt tried stinging him later. He left by climbing down the fire escape and onto the streets, not hearing the faint screeching of the city being attacked by undead Pokemon as he slipped out of town.
Harley is a well-groomed with glossy fur. He has emerald eyes that have peridot hints and accents. His hair curls almost perfectly because he grooms it often. His neck fur is softly and fluffy, almost wool-like but softer. His hands are furry on the backs but the rest is skin, and his fingers are human-shaped but with pointed, more clawlike. He's not as fat as he is wide-hipped, making his lower section large. His tail is long and wavy, and curls in some places like a regular Simisear tail. His feet are slightly human shaped, his toes dog-like but arranged like human toes. His face is finely shaped, more circular instead of oval.
He thinks he's an alright guy, but he kind of beats himself up due to the fact he was bullied a lot. He expects himself to be better. But he's egotistical when he feels he has an advantage over someone else. He can get loud, even peppy and motivational. He likes to taunt others because he's a bit egotistical. He likes to yell when he can, and has a good time when he's loud. He's impish, liking to joke whether it be offensive or not. He always pokes at others, sometimes pointing out their flaws harshly but almost innocently. Casually friendly, and he's not very stand-offish on first impression. Some may call him a pushover. He makes a good ally and fights hard. He's kind of shy and doesn't realize it at times, and deep inside, he's just timid, attention-deprived, and unloved -in his mind. He will act somewhat heartless around others, but if someone gets to him, he'll become really bashful.
He's easily annoyed and usually picks a fight, but he ends up losing the fights usually due to his lack of social skills, not that he hasn't got the will to torment people. He doesn't know most times when he's being offensive, he's been desensitized to insult and injury and finds it almost normal. He doesn't like to give up, but if someone brings up a good point, he shuts up. He works alone most of the time. Sometimes has a bit of self loathing about not being able to be real around other Pokemon. He has yet to meet someone to bring out his real self. He is mildly vain as a cover up to his real emotions, making others focus on his superficial traits instead of his personality as a defense mechanism. He likes to groom himself a lot, too. He acts like a ladies man but he doesn't realize it may annoy others and keep them away from him permanently.
