Before he was born, his mother was the alpha to one of the strongest Eeveelution packs there was. Rei's mother, Aya, was alpha until his father, Tsume, took over, claiming Aya as a reluctant mate after he brutally beat her and raped her. From that incident, Rei and his brothers Shizu and Akira and two females came to be. The little girls didn't survive past a few minutes; Tsume killed them because he hated women, and he thought they were weak and useless.
Their mother loved them a lot, she thought they were her world despite that they came from their father. Their father seemed to feel nothing but disappointment, annoyance and anger for them. But as they grew older, he took a liking to Rei, because he was larger and heftier than his two other siblings. Tsume decided to raise Rei in his own image; a merciless, powerful leader. Before then, though, Rei used to have the best times of his young life with his brothers. As Rei was taken on, his father gave him and his siblings tests of adulthood. The middle child, Shizu, was beaten a lot because he failed what his father told him to do. Rei defended Shizu a lot of the time, and being Tsume's first and best son, and the fact Rei was so strong, he backed off. Shizu was usually grateful, and Rei felt a major purpose.
As days grew to months, Tsume pushed Rei to his limits, often to times where he couldn't do things completely correct which made Tsume angry. Tsume started to doubt Rei, beating him verbally and physically to make him get the point. Not getting little praise from the start, Rei decided that he just wasn't being good enough. The fighting his parents did fueled more guilt, as Aya usually defended Rei. Akira developed spite for him, making him feel like he failed him somehow. It's where his troubles began.
About the time when Rei was an early teen, Tsume was just about done with his mother and Shizu. In a livid fit, he started getting aggressive with Shizu. Rei, being too afraid of his father, did nothing to defend Shizu out of fear of being beaten himself. His mother stepped in to defend Shizu, and Tsume ended up brutally killing her. Rei's heart sunk from the loss of his mother, his guilt anchoring itself in the back of his head as it started to feed on him. Tsume publicly discluded Shizu from the pack, leaving him to die with his mother's corpse. Rei felt torn, afraid of being abused harder by his father or staying with his brother. He ran to Shizu and tried to stay and refused to leave, but his father wouldn't let him stay, beating him until unconscious then dragging him away by the scruff.
Rei, being with only an angry, disappointed father and brother, let the abuse immensely attacked his psyche. All of his problems developed to the point of where he didn't know how to feel anymore. His father gave up on him, not caring anymore how he grew up, only using him as a punching bag. But one day, Rei went off on his own, and was caught by a trainer. He was relieved yet almost saddened at the same time.
Rosco Williams, the trainer who caught him, seemed like a nice guy. He'd pat Rei sometimes and gave him food, as disgusting as Rei thought it was. The large Eevee was pretty content with this new life, thanking Rosco for taking him away to what Rei thought was paradise. One day, Rosco took him to this old man who called himself the "Move Deleter." Rosco renamed him "Catalyst", as he was the start to something Rosco hadn't told Cat was going to be part of.
Catalyst felt his legs giving out in panic, being in a tight, small metal cage. With the black blanket over it, he was unable to see anything. The car stopped, and the cage was picked up. As the blanket lifted, he saw other pokemon in cramped cages, looking about as scared and sad as he felt. The hint of unity died as he was taken out of his cage and picked up by Rosco. He was carried out into a small room, the sound of cheering faint outside of the room. The only thing in the room was a large door. They place him down and started hitting him, trying to aggravate him. All Catalyst felt was fear, and he lashed back when he could. These humans weren't his father. They seemed pleased, stopping their torment and ushering him out the door.
He was blinded as he ran out into the ring to get away, and the crowd around the metal, Roman-fashioned colosseum. His feet stopped, his body paralyzed in fear and dread made his muscles ache. There was an announcer with a microphone, the voice ringing off the shabby metal that served as boundaries. Catalyst didn't hear much, only that the loser dies. At the other side, there was a large, menacing looking Houndoom, battle scarred and strong looking. He heard of battles before, but now that he was in one, he was floored.
The Houndoom charged and threw intimidating words, attacking Cat and throwing the black Eevee back against the wall, damaging him pretty bad. The Eevee staggered and got up, defending and dodging a lot more than landing attacks on the monster Houndoom. He got lucky, managing to even the HP between them. In a last ditch effort, the Houndoom struggles to pin the small Eevee on the ground, and digs it's teeth into his throat. Catalyst couldn't even gasp, it was stolen by the Houndooms fangs. His muscles involuntarily convulsed, his eyes pouring tears. His heart fluttered, then finally stopped.
The Houndoom howled, the crowd roaring with one discontent voice damning the Eevee. The announcer declared the Houndoom the winner, but then stopped. Black, thick fog started to cover the Eevee's corpse, then there was suddenly a white flash. The fog covered the entire place, an ebony body which was almost invisible stood up. He has been brought back. Suddenly, the fog dispelled, the dust barely stirring around the newly evolved Phanteon. Without warning, Catalyst lunged, a feral roar ringing through the entire colosseum. He begun slamming the Houndoom with his new, enormous paws. His large claws hooked flesh, ripping the Houndoom to shreds. An unrecognizable hunk of flesh fell, spraying blood all over. As Catalyst's indescribable rage wore off, he realized what he had done. It was the first one he killed, and he labeled himself "Murderer."
From then on, he participated in countless battles that he won, every time his paws bloodied, since only physical assaults and one move was allowed. He was blinded with TM's, told to use them differently every match. It was too much for the poor Eeveelution, but he had to do it to live. Every time he protested, Rosco locked him in the dusty, moldy closet in his cage. Rosco threatened to kill him if he didn't participate. So he continued to rip faces off, slice arteries and veins, maul limbs and chests. He pretended to become enraged when they tempted him, keeping up a false image of brutality and sadism. It was pointless rage. When he tried remember his past self, he couldn't. He was changed.
One day, Rosco had been careless, leaving the door open. Catalyst had just then learned to meld through objects, and he managed to slip out of his cage. He bolted, Rosco running after him, shouting all sorts of hurtful insults. The guilt and fear made him ache, and he finally slipped away. He leaped into the river that was on the side of the town he ran away from, swimming quickly, finally feeling free, and he ran until his legs couldn't carry him anymore. He wandered, too scared to interact with anyone and dreadfully alone.
Cat is a strong, fit looking, young adult. His body is compact but has good form and shape, his body similar to a dogs more than a feline or fox. He has large paws with large, black retracted claws like a cats. His paws are more cat-like, and his shoulders and hindquarters are large and muscular. His face is like a fox's, thin in shape and long. His nose fits to his slim muzzle. His eyes are bright and vibrant blue, and they're his feature that stands out most as well as the most expressive. His fur seems more smokey and looks as if it give off residual fog as he moves. His pelt is mildly healthy looking and thick, but some spots seem uneven or bumpy because of scars hidden under his hair. His fur (not hair) is puffy and almost like wool, but even softer and airier. His hair tuft on his head is wavy and almost like bangs and it hangs in front of his face. His ears are usually up, but flatten back when he's upset.
•Happiness: He is usually cheery and happy, very normal when he's not being tormented by his own self. He likes to think of his past happiness. He likes to see the beauty in things, and looking at nature reminds him of simpler times when he and his brothers used to play; before one got got kicked out. He usually is polite and thoughtful, and he likes to speak his opinions when they're not unbiased or contradictory to anyone else's, he hates conflicting ideas because it causes trouble for him. He's very happy with others when he feels like he fits in, and he hates being absent for things. He's not very friendly towards being mocked because of his past, but he may sometimes mock others. If he doesn't realize he's being biased, he won't feel guilty, but may later on if he considers it. He also may feel like an outcast, even among friends who love him. His self-imagine gets the better of him on it.
•Jokes: He may crack an occasional joke, getting a laugh out of himself. He enjoys jokes, and likes to usually tell really corny jokes and pokes a bit of fun at others, which is usually the jokes he regrets. However, if he's made fun of, he may start to feel upset with himself, not so much at the person who told the joke. He likes to believe he's decent or well at cheering people up when they're sad. And he likes to cheer people up when they're sad.
•Quiet: Cat is relatively quiet, and shy to meet new pokemon. He doesn't usually talk to many, unless he trusts them at least a little bit. His quietness makes others lead to poking him for information, which he is used to. He's analytical, determining others personalities a bit before speaking to them easier.
•Sensitive: He's very sensitive towards others pain, especially his best friends. He's sympathetic to even those who mistreat him, but he doesn't open up so much to them. He feels he can't be happy if there's another person that's sad. He also tends to get easily insulted because he doesn't know how to take a joke, which he gets upset over too. He's physically tolerant to pain to an extent, he deals with long lasting pains better than if someone hits him. He doesn't like to be hit at any time because it sends him into a downward spiral of remembrance.
•Hopeful: Catty has an odd sense of hope, which sometimes he thrashes himself over. He manages to stay hopeful even through his hurt or no matter how bleak the situation is or if it's a bit unrealistic. He doesn't like to think if things got worse because deep down, he feels like it's bad enough.
•Generosity: He gives all he has and helps whenever he can and gets work done as quick a possible. He will give anything he has to anyone in need, especially to those who are in danger. He self-sacrifices and usually ends up hurt if there's possible danger.
•(Good) Triggers: The smell of pines, wet/dry/cut grass, roses/jasmine, water, and wet/dry/tilled soil
•Self-Image: He sees himself as, literally, one of the worst things on Earth, and a monster and all he does is hurt and damage others as well as himself. He finds himself intolerable, socially awkward and is anti-social because he's afraid of meeting others because he thinks they'll see him the way he sees himself; horrific. He thinks all he is is a unjustified victim, and he's too stubborn to pull himself up out of his hurt and man up like his father used to demand of him. He feels as if his hurt is unjustified, and that everyone had it so much worse than him, and he does not understand why he hurts; he feels weak because of it. He also finds himself to be a cold blooded killer because of all the other pokemon he's had to kill to survive. At times, he hears his fathers voice, telling him not to do things or say things or feel ways he shouldn't, like a conscience. His father had an incredibly tight leash on him, and since he's broken free of it, he's felt lost. He's tired of being expected to do impossible things perfectly and idealistically. His father used to expect things of him that would only be expected by higher level and aged pokemon, which earned him beatings. He just knows he doesn't want anyone to feel the pain he does, so he's super cautious about everything he does. He also hates his body and the way he looks, he thinks he's a freak. He is only sad when it's provoked, however. He seems to be casual about his conscience he's developed, but he breaks down if it screams at him. He degrades himself for not being able to take a joke, and he gets angry at himself because he feels like he has no right to complain about most things he deals with.
•Guilt: He has major guilt issues, saying sorry for nearly everything. He feels as if everything that happens is his fault regardless, even if it doesn't make logical sense. Whenever someone bring up the fact that it's illogical or ridiculous, he goes into a panic and denial and refuses it to be true. He usually internally feels this guilt, rarely voicing it, but he'll complain of feeling weak. He has fainted from being overwhelmed by his own self guilt. His father buried guilt into his mind when he was young. He was his fathers favorite, and his siblings hated him for it. But being the pick of his abusive father, he was pushed harder and harder to be the best. He was beaten and chastised if he messed up once, and got no praise for getting it right, as it was expected of him to do things correctly. At one point, he got upset and tried to push back, but his father nearly killed him. So he submitted to everything his father said. His father called him every insult in the book, and told him that everything was wrong with him. Others believed otherwise, but Catalyst never accepted it other than how he saw it. His father used to use other's voiced opinions as evidence to the problems or things he messed up on, driving their discontentment into his head as well. He also feels like he isn't justified in feeling his pain, and that his father was as good as any other father, but usually other pokemon don't agree. He thinks he's overly sensitive, unable to do things right even if he tries his hardest to do them. He also feels terrible if he raises his voice in the wrong time or way, and he hates himself for his stubbornness. He sees himself as a major slacker, and will do anything to help anyone. He feels guilt towards Rosco, as well. He was wrongly blamed because other pokemon set him up, or if there was something Cat did that he didn't realize was bad to human custom, Rosco would usually scold him and smack him. He also carries guilt and PTSD from the fights he's been in and killing other pokemon just because it was expected of him. He regretted it so much, but if he didn't, he'd die. At a lot of points, he wondered why he even kept fighting because killing wasn't worth it.
•Blame: He never blames anyone for any sadness or guilt he feels. Even if it's obvious that it's the other person's fault, he feels to only blame himself. Being extremely and wrongly abused from a young age, most of what goes on, he's blamed for. When his father kicked out his brother, he was badly disheartened and felt it was his fault and no one was there to tell him otherwise, so his guilt only grew. Rosco never said sorry, and he had a couple of good times which Cat always points out to himself or others when he's brought up. His father is never mentioned, but he never blames him on the inside. He thinks his father was only a regal, powerful, caring pokemon who wanted to make him the best but he stupidly pushed him away. He blames himself for the death of many, never the ones that forced him to kill.
•Fear: He's afraid of being considered as a "monster" by others. When he was young, he wanted to be like his father because his dad seemed like everything that was good. But as he grows older, he feels a lot of pain because of his father; which he whole-heartedly denies as the reason. Every time he messes up, he not only feels guilt, but he feels fearful because he, unknowingly, sees his father in himself, which is his ultimate fear. He goes into a panic when he hears his father's voice as a conscience, and Cat recalls his chastising. The last thing he wants is to hurt others, which fuels his guilt whenever he makes someone upset. He didn't want to turn into his father, but by being entered into the fights, he felt like a cold-blooded killer anyway. He prefers to be alone, even though he has mild agoraphobia and abandonment issues. Certain smells and images will send him into panic attacks just as much as a voice or reprimand. His father used to tell him that people would treat him how he acted, which to his father was weak, pathetic and stupid; a loser. So he acts tough, like a winner, and intelligent out of fear that he will fail. He's afraid of going blind, so he's careful of his eyes.
•Weakness: He feels as if he's emotionally and physically weak, which is ironic because of his body and power are enormous and anything but "weak." He refuses to cry, his father would beat him if he cried. His mother would usually ask what was wrong if he cried, which he didn't want to tell her because her and his father fought viciously over his sadness as well as his brothers. Since he's been in the fights, looking at his large paws while his claws are out makes him panic because memories of killing others with his paws is still large him his mind.
•Failure: He's afraid to fail and end up as all the things he's messed up on. He's afraid of failing like his father, but he denies that too, saying his father wasn't a failure, but a smart leader, and just a bit misguided. He also is ashamed because he feels like he failed Rosco all the time, doing things he shouldn't have but didn't know better. He also feels like a failure because Rosco was never proud of him when he won, all he did was collect prize money. He also feels like he's failed the pokemon he's killed, reluctantly, but he still blames himself. He feels destined to stay the way he is, which he thinks is sick and messed up. He feels hopelessly irreparable.
•Lying: He got adapted to lying about things, and now he feels like it's who he is. He lied about simple, basic things just to keep from getting beaten, but then it escalated to major, huge lies that were almost life dependent. He was disgusted when he realized it, and tries not to lie, but he finds it difficult at times. When he thinks about his lies, though, he finds himself to be cunning about them. He lied to his mother about his well being and feelings so she wouldn't fight with his father.
•Excuses: He hates making excuses, even if he seems to make them all the time. His mother mostly reprimanded to not make excuses because it shows laziness or ignorance.
•(Bad) Triggers: "Wake up," "Failure," "What-- --is wrong with you," "Liar," "Ignorant," "Psycho," "Selfish," (a certain type of) cologne, blood or injury (smell and sight), dust, mold, and bikes.
