|History||Shadowmere was born to two houndoom, only her and her brother, whom was born blind, his eyes a pure white. Their parents gave them each a name, Her brother Ivoresque, after his white eyes, and herself, Ebonese. Despite their grand names, they were not treated well. They were beaten, crushed and tortured.|
Ebonese tried to protect her brother, and there were countless times where her brother would cry over her broken and bruised form after each beating. She would stay quiet, and never argue. It was all to protect her brother. Every scream he let out, she was always there. Until that one day.
Ebonese was alone with her brother, their parents were out. They were just playing their normal game of hide and seek when their parents came home, looking angrier than usual. The two had learned to stay away during these times, but in her panic, she forgot to lead her brother away from the raging dark types. She realized too late, and when she turned to help him get away, she was horrified at what she saw.
Her father held the blind houndour by his neck, shaking him violently. Blood flew everywhere, and his cries of pain sent Ebonese into tears. Crawling forward, she choked out pleas to let him go, to punish her instead, but her words were lost. Her brother's spine was ripped from him, taking any chance she had of saving him. Her parents then left, leaving them for the last time.
Ebonese was left to cry over the remains of her brother, unaware that she was enveloped in a bright light. Her howls of sadness echoed through the forest and the houndoom, wrecked by greif, simply wanted to see her brother gain. When Ebonese's blurry vision cleared, a shadow of a houndoom, it's eyes as white as her brothers was standing in front of her.
She changed her name to Shadowmere, to honour the soul of her brother that stood by her. She listened to her brother's words, and he led her to a human city. She trusted her brother to help her, and because of how houndoom were said to have the cry of the Grim Reaper, many humans fled. All except one.
The human was fascinated by Houndoom, intrigued by the dark hound. He had a special necklace that allowed him to hear what Shadowmere was saying, but he could never guess why the houndoom seemed to stare off into space at random times, listening to something that he could not see.
The human gave her a necklace with a metal tag. On the metal tag was the letter 'S'. She knew this meant that the necklace belonged to her. The eerie thing was that when she got the necklace, her brother got a similar necklace, except there was an 'I' instead of an 'S'.
The human was known by the name Krypt, even though it wan't his real name. Krypt took care of Shadowmere, even if she was extremely weary because of her past. Krypt trained Shadowmere to a high enough level that she could defend herself from nearly everything, and used a weird disk to teach her a new move. Even so, she still went by her brother's words. He knew something bad was going to happen, but none of them expected what did happen.
The Epidemic was the one thing none of them expected. Krypt knew what this meant. He told them to run, they would join up again sometime. Shadowmere got the same thing from her brother. She ran, leaving Krypt. Her brother was her only company now. Once again, it was only them.
|Appearance||Ash colored fur with fiery highlights dons a slender, strong structure. Three silvery bands sit on Shadowmere's back, along with a fourth band on her neck, along with a small skull-like accessory. Two horns protrude from the her skull, sweeping back behind her head. Sky blue eyes frame her face, giving her a kind and gentle look. Shadowmere walks with an elegant grace, despite her years of torture.|
|Personality||Silent, Protective, Defensive. Shadowmere is very quiet, and tends to keep to herself most of the time. She is very protective of younger pokemon, and is very defensive of the shadow that follows her around. She knows that her brother still lingers in the shadow, and she will occasionally talk to the shadow.|
|User Notes|| -Calls herself Shadowmere because of the shadow that follows her everywhere.|
-High level from abusive parents and defending her brother from them
-She will call the shadow by the name 'Ivoresque' after her brother.
-The game of hide and seek they used to play was where her brother was always the one who hid and she seeked, this was so that he didn't have to find her.
-The shadow is actually a hallucination, formed from Shadowmere's grief, but she doesn't know this.
