|History||Born and raised in the wild, Nerine came to be the wonder of the forest. Her father, an amazing Dragonite, had been abandoned in the forests along with his eigth egg after his seventh failure in producing a beautiful Calibee Dratini. Ironically, the little serpent was one. She was a gorgeous white, dapples with pale shades of yellow and unsaturated brown, with deep captivating markings drawn down her back. The Dragon Pokemon was always curious and childish, enjoying acts such as repeatedly climbing up her father's body then sliding down his back, or simply just resting upon the male's head. It was a fairly peaceful life, the yellow giant strong enough to hunt and provide for both of them.|
One day, on a trip around the forest, they were sitting around in the moss gardens when the yellow dragon felt a new presence near where they rested. They both searched around the area for this newcomer, curious as to who it was. It turns out that the Pokemon was a Charmander of an odd blue, unconscious in a bed of flora. Nerine was surprised, but determined to help the firey salamander and urged her father to do the same, bringing daily food and water for the lizard until it regained it's being. A few days after they had evacuated the starter Pokemon to a safer area and cared for him, he finally awoke.
Nerine was absolutely in awe of the fire-type, breaking her usual quiet demeanor to befriend the Charmander. Her father had freely welcomed the young one into his family, and the little Dratini had great pleasure in referring to his as a 'brother'. It wasn't long before the little serpent asked her new 'sibling' question, like where did he come from and where did he get all the pretty jewelry from. It seemed that Emett, as the Charmander said, didn't quite know the answer to the latter, but continued to wear it for a reason the dragon couldn't fathom. However, such subjects didn't matter much, the fire-type easily fitting into their misfit family and becoming her big brother. The little serpent always loved the idea of siblings, enjoying playing games and conversing with him daily.
Every once in a while their sole parent would leave them behind to search for sustenance, leaving the odd Charmander in charge of taking care of little Nerine as he vanished into the woods. It didn't bother the little Dratini, waiting patiently with her fake sibling for their caretaker to return. One day, the Dragonite returned with a wounded Trapinch, supposedly being attacked by a rather angry Hitmonchan in the forests. This bug, like the young duo, was oddly coloured. A pale, ghostly white with dull violet markings and etchings upon it's exoskeleton. His name was Emissary, and he too, became a part of the family. The ragtag group of children were closely bonded, never leaving one's side as they skirmished and played.
Months later, after Emett evolved into a brave Charmeleon and Emissary fitting in almost perfectly with the trio, their father left again to find more berries and prey. During the time her parent was away, she was inspired by the amulet which her fire-brother wore, and soon sought the old weaver Ariados of the forest to spin her a Handkerchief with a similar design. Nerine was also able to find some forest friends to gather her clay and dyes, was able to forge a similar necklace for her Trapinch sibling. As soon as the cloth for her accessory was done, she wore it and handed the finished trinket to the bug-dragon, before announcing that it was a symbol of their everlasting companionship and love.
However, something was odd. It had been days since the Dragonite left and not once had the male taken so long. The Dratini began to grow worried with her siblings, stomach growling for food as she stayed up long nights in hopes of seeing her father's flying figure. Eventually, she did, but not how she had expected it to be. His flight was clumsy and loud, much unlike the graceful flier she once knew, and as the large figure had a similarly ungraceful landing, Emett was already sprinting to him. Nerine followed immediately, concerned at the sight of her unconscious dad. He came back empty-handed, she noticed, but the Charmeleon was able to gather little bits of food and give it to her. She ate uneasily, her stomach flipping with anxiety as she well asleep curled up alongside her siblings.
However, her respite didn't last very long. The sudden jerk as Emett hauled her body into his arms and ran made her eyes wide with fear. The sky was orange, a vibrant citrus. Her father's eyes, now awake, a terrifying crimson. Nerine, shocked and confused, snapped her eyes back shut right before the meteors rained down upon them, the explosions ringing in her ears, wailing. The momentum in which the Charmeleon slid under a partially-overturned tree and into a burrow, along with Emissary, before falling into unconsciousness. The little Dratini had stayed up only a few moments after he brothers, gazing at the now-tattered body of her undead father as he flew off, leaving a trail of destruction behind.
She awoke faster than the others, too, already slithering from their hide to observe their now ruined home. Beside her was her Trapinch brother, both gazing out into the ashes of the land. It was only when the shuffling of Emett waking rang in her ears that she turned, meeting the Charmeleon's eyes. Nerine was crying, sobbing as her beloved handkerchief covered her mouth. "It's ruined, it's all ruined." she had mourned, before being ushered away by the fire-type. From that moment, the trio had become more inseperable than ever, travelling through Unova in attempts to survive.
|Appearance||She is a Dratini of avergae size and weight, albeit maybe a little skinnier from the lack of food. Her serpentine body is not the pretty blue that other's of her kind have, but instead, is a pure white with dapples of yellow and markings of brown. Her ear fins are a dull color, while her eyes are a vibrant green. She never removes the handkerchief from around her face.|
|Personality||Once a peppy, always-happy child, she is now quiet to the point where most think she is mute. Her ears are partially deaf from the explosions she had heard, and her eyes strain to see bright colors and lights. Nerine has yet to get over what had happened in the forest, in denial about everything from her father becoming infected to her home burning down. She is emotionally distraught, scared of almost everything and ridiculously skeptical of everyone except her siblings. She doesn't let this show, however, and simply keeps to her brothers. She has a bit of an odd habit of tangling herself around Emett's body and simply staying like that while he moves. She heavily relies on the two to do many day-to-day activities, and cannot even feed herself.|
