|History||Arsi was raised in a large litter of Meowths, she being the oldest though she never acted the part. Her parents taught her and her six siblings to use their cute appearances to get food, a vital skill in the big city. Arsi was particularly gifted in this. Born with soft brown marks and big blue eyes the little kitten was always given plenty of handouts and pets. Even though her parents warned her against it she grew attached to some of the humans she met. Often, she would visit the same spots to see the same humans that always welcomed her with hugs and love. |
In one particular case, a little boy and girl would come to see her near daily in the park. They loved their little friend, often giving her little sweet candies as well as food. Arsi enjoyed their company, and followed them back to their home one day. No harm could come from such gentle humans. The childrens mother was very welcoming, feeding the cat and letting her come and go as she pleased. Eventually, they even put a little collar on her to mark ownership since they weren't old enough to actually catch her yet. The kids loved their new pet so much, they even taught her a few TM’s, watching the kitten do as they say. It was all in good fun, of course. Most the day Arsi would simply relax and play with them before and curling up back at home during the night. It was a nice time for the stray. Clean, fed, and loved.
This was all to change though. When her father ate an infected Spearow it marked the start of the collapse of her family. The already violent Persian went berserk, killing two of his kits and mauling a third. Arsi‘s mother, Gidea, killed her mate to save her what was left of her family, at the cost of being infected as well. Taking her wounded son, the Persian left her three daughters and other son to fend for themselves. Why she left, no one understood.. The four Meowths were able to cope comfortably, as it was much easier to feed four mouths then nine, though sadness plagued their hearts. Arsi knew she had to cut the time she spent with her beloved human family. Within a couple days, she was going for her last visit: She had to take care of her siblings, not some humans. She was the oldest and family came first, right?
It turned out it would definitely be her last visit. As she approached the door, the kids ran inside, screaming with terrified looks on their faces. The family was yelling at her, telling her to get away. The Meowth didn’t understand, heart already aching from her siblings deaths, and came a little closer. Why were they doing this? The mother threw pots and pans from the window while she spat vile words at the cat, causing a lot of commotion. Arsi grew scared, unsure what to do. This wasn't right, they loved her! She noticed the noise had attracted more of the crazy Pokemon, hearing their sounds before they saw her. The tiny Meowth hid, utterly terrified, leaving the noisy humans defenseless. The undead went straight for the screaming mother, easily breaking into the house and slaughtering the family. Their screams filled Arsi’s ears as she fled in horror.
Trembling when she got back to her alleyway home, Arsi collapsed with shock. She had watched both of her families die now.. and it was taking a toll on the kitten. Overwhelmed with emotions she had no energy left to even whine. A pounding headache tormented her until eventually she passed out. It was hours later she awoke. Thirst made her mouth dry and though she was still disorientated from before Arsi managed to climb to the roof of the building edging her alleyway home. Head foggy she drank from the gutter under the starlight without taking in any sounds around her. It was eerily peaceful compared to the last few days. Maybe if she wasnt so groggy, or absorbed in drinking and the scenery, she would of noticed the Houndoom creeping into her home. The canine shredded one of her sisters before she could make a sound, and grasped the male one next. He shrieked, finally alerting Arsi to the danger, and waking his other sister. She stared in terror as the event from earlier repeated itself. The tom kit was ripped in two, letting out a bloodcurdling cry. Arsi hissed for her remaining sister to get out of the alley as she jumped down to ground level. Together, the sisters fled, leaving a trail of tears behind them.
Things only went from bad to worse. Arsi was shaken, bad. Scared, feeling her world collapse. Her family had been destroyed. Three times within only a few days. Her father had gone mad, she watched her mother kill him. He brother, was left dying and in mutilated in the jaws of a carnivore. She had seen her siblings ripped to pieces when she had been awake. She could of saved them! Done anything! Panic rose in the Meowth. Every noise, could be a threat to her, or her sister Clover. Something that would destroy all she had left. It could be something that would spell doom for her. Run away! Run away and the noises cant get you… SNAP! A flutter of wings as bird Pokemon took off. Something was nearby? Panic rose in her mind, a headache flaring up instantly. Panic-stricken the Meowth ran, momentarily forgetting her sister. All she could think of was finding safety. She smashed into a tree in her sprint, collapsing on the spot.
She awoke with sound burning in her ears and her vision running red. It was as though the world hated her. Everyone was taken from her! Hallucinations of her siblings and ‘owners’ being slaughtered flashed in her eyes. With each crack of a twig, or rustling of leaves, the Meowth would panic that something was coming to get her. That it was her turn. That every body with the blood of her family must die. Im surrounded! They must be everywhere! It felt like a horror story. All her siblings.. dead.. They were killed. Murdered. Her parents, monsters.. She was all alone, defenseless even, as she couldn’t win a battle even with her new moves. Images of her sister came to mind. Her grouchy, but resilient sister. "Ohh.. Clover.. My dear sister your out there! Your alone. You could be in trouble! You need help. Oh god what if youre being attacked? No, leave her alone! Ill save you Clover! Right, Clover?" Unaware that she was talking to herself, Arsi marched on with a new quest. She was determined to find her sister, to have her family back. If she didnt get herself killed first.
Her travels brought her to many places. Usually though, she was running in fear and didnt have time for sightseeing. Other Pokemon never seemed to stick around long, or ended up getting killed. Her journey to Pallet was no exception. A massive storm scared her out of hiding and brought her to a new group of friends. They were all so sweet and the cat was happy to have company once more.
...But, it was short lived. Their ranks dwindled, death never fair away. Pokemon vanished, and worse yet, the undead found them. The massive dragons were berserk, everyone taking damage like no tomorrow. Arsi feared for her life and the lives of her friends.
As Khan the Lucario took out one of the demons, she was almost hopeful. They might be able to win! Then a Scwoobat came from no where and killed Haze before her eyes. She only had enough time to scream before everything... changed. A disturbance raced through her and suddenly the cat was in a forest at a different time of time. She cried out, hurting, lonely, confused. Haze's death flashed before her eyes. Why, she didn't understand.
The legends must of been on her side as Khan had not been taken from her. By the wounds on both their forms Arsi could determine that their experience was indeed real, but how they got here was a complete mystery. They met up with a new group of Pokemon, one of them seeming to share their confusion. The other, however, were not so friendly.
The Meowth knew that she would not survive in this group. They were.. too much about power that she just didn't have. No, she was not the fighter that these Hunters wanted. She would die here if she stayed. As soon as they could she left with Khan, daring to brave the unknown with him by her side. As long as they were together things would be okay. Even if that meant.. going back to Pallet.
|Bulbapedia||"Meowth is a small, feline Pokémon with cream-colored fur that turns brown at the tips of its hind paws and tail. Its ovoid head features four prominent whiskers, wide eyes with slit pupils, two pointed teeth in the upper jaw, and a gold oval coin embedded in its forehead. Its ears are black with brown interiors, and are flanked with an additional pair of long whiskers. Meowth is a quadruped with the ability to walk on its hind legs; while the games always depict Meowth on two legs, the anime states that Meowth normally walks on all fours. It can freely manipulate its claws, retracting them when it wants to move silently. The tip of its tail curls tightly. It is known to wander about city streets and pick up anything that sparkles, including loose change. Meowth is a playful Pokémon with the capacity for human-like intelligence, with at least one member of the species teaching itself how to speak. Meowth tends to live in urban areas."|
|Appearance||Arsi looks like most Meowths, for the most part. She has long, soft fur, usually standing up with fright. All four of her paws are a soft brown, with her ears being a chocolate color instead of black. Her big blue eyes easily reflect her fright. |
Arsi wears a pink collar with a large tag on it that reads 'Kitten'.
Generally when moving she stays very low to the ground. Her ears are usually in a down position or constantly flicking after a noise is heard. Often hunches with her paws close to her belly in a half-balled position when sitting, very resided.
|Accent||Arsi's voice is very soft, gentle, and sweet. Usually she is quiet with a possible stutter in panic. When afraid she shrieks, a lot.|
|Motivation||Don't die or become infected.|
|Personality||In general Arsi is very timid. New Pokemon frighten her to the point she may panic and become unpredictable. She would rather run and hide then fight but can be vicious when afraid, using her moves to the best of her ability though she is no fighter. |
Once she has relaxed and made friends with new Pokemon Arsi is kindhearted and sweet. Clinging to leadership like a lost puppy, almost to the point of obsession, she needs guidance in her life. With everything being taken away having some form balance will hopefully keep her sane.
Easily stressed Arsi can quickly become jumpy. Trembling and prone to say, “What was that?” at the smallest sound. She may talk to herself, a bad habit shes picked up, and swears others are talking back to her.
Easily distracted, when speaking to her she may go off on a tangent, then forget who she was talking to or why. May pause or zone out in conversation. Prone to screeching in fright, as well as quickly dashing away, often crashing into things. Makes a lot of animalistic noises when afraid.
Babbles about 'The omnipresence' (the undead) especially when stressing.
Stress, usually during battle or the sight of an undead, can cause her to have hallucinations and delusions. Arsi may see things that come to mind in panic, such as fire if she can not breathe (as though there is smoke), wind if she cant hear, ect. Things might happen to her fellow Pokemon that are not real, such as dying, motions or entire scenes. Arsi hears voices as well, usually with cryptic messages that make no sense.
Pokemon that do not exist often show up and she will talk to them though they never seem to talk back.
|Birthplace||Saffron City, Kanto|
(As a small note, since they might mention them, their littermates are named Arsi, Nero, Pike, Esme, and Branch.)
|Team notes||She can not protect herself and would much rather be with a group, but if its more stressful than helpful she is a flight risk.|
|User Notes||- The treats were rare candies.|
- Was level 14 before her rare candy spike, and 22 before she entered RP.
- Her actual schizophrenia is minor, needing an emotional spike to cause the problems.
- Both her Persian parents knew Night Slash
- Her Toxic attack is usually used involuntarily when shes extremely stressed, using it as though she was coughing up a furball.
- Sister of Clover and Kolven the Meowths.
