PERSONALITY

Seems cold hearted at first|Won't hesitate to kill if a weaker creature is being attacked by someone stronger|Warm and friendly once he opens up|Loyal to the core|Detests unneeded violence|Dislikes hunting and will only prey on the already dying as opposed to the young|Honest|Can come off as rude/brash|Occasionally reckless|Angers easily|Dry Humor
Tiana is fairly upbeat and happy. She enjoys making others smile. However she has violent mood swings and she tends to talk to herself. Tiana is very much a child at heart but is still very clever. She often enjoys a good challenge but her childish and carefree outlook she caries most of the time tends to get her in trouble.Over all Tiana is quite nice but sometimes she does ot get along with others if in a large group.

APPEARANCE

"Espurr is a small, bipedal, feline Pokémon. Its fur is mussed and a pale grey color with the exception of its ears—which are cream-rimmed—and its paws, which have short cream socks. It has wide, annular lilac eyes with darker purple pupils. It has a small, triangular nose and tiny mouth. It has a small, fluffy, slightly curled tail. Its ears, quite large in proportion to its body, are folded- beneath them are two ring-shaped buff-colored organs. These organs emit Espurr's intense psychic powers, and said power would leak out were the ears not sheltering the organs. When its mouth is open, two pointed teeth can be seen on its upper jaw. Espurr are solitary in the wild; they act on their own and each values its independence." ~Bulbapedia 
Sten is a bit taller then most Espurr, but he prefers to walk on all fours as it is faster and he can better keep up with Tiana. His fur is a medium warm grey, marked with white, lilac, and aqua. His eyes are a soft amber color. His body is scarred some what, but the worst of the scars are on his legs. He carries his Evolite in his mouth most of the time.

"Zoroark is a bipedal, gray-brown, fox-like Pokémon with crimson and black accents. It has a pointed snout and ears with red insides. It also has some red rimming its eyes and mouth. It has a large, red, voluminous mane with black tips, which somewhat resembles a ponytail, as a teal bangle down its length separates a mass of the mane from the lower portion. It has a black ruff on its upper body, pointed at the shoulders from which its arms extend. Its upper arms are thin, whereas its lower arms, while still slim, are bulkier. The arms have spiky extensions of fur at the elbows, and it has red claws on its hands and feet. Zoroark's eyes are red-rimmed with light blue irises." ~Bulbapedia
Tiana is tall and thin compared to an average Zoroark. Her fur is a dark grey and black, with green highlights. Her mane is a bright green color, held by a purple jewel. She wears several glow stick bangles, and a black, spiked collar. Her cyan messenger bag has since been broken and she made it into a scarf with a pouch. Tiana almost always wears her poi, and she keeps the Rainbow Wing she found on the sunken ship in her mane behind her ear.

HISTORY

Sten was orphaned at a young age, abandoned because of his strange pelt colours. He was taken in by an albino Leipard who understood how it felt to be a outcast. Due to her inability to have children of her own, Sten's adoptive mother was very overprotective. Her mate a normally coloured Houndoom was against the idea from the start and tended to behave violently towards the young Espurr. Strangely Sten took the abuse well, he accepted the fact that his adoptive father did not enjoy his presence. Despite the violent behaviour from his father, Sten grew up relatively joyful, even without any real friends besides his mother. Sten felt his mothers genuine affection was enough for him.


Four years passed without much difficulty aside from the Houndoom's negative behaviour. Until the night before Sten's birthday, his adoptive father turned his claws to Sten's surrogate mother. Years of buried rage unleashed itself that evening, terrifying onlookers and even the mother Sten had come to love so dearly. In a desperate, yet remarkable feat, the young Espurr unleashed Giga Impact via Assist upon the Houndoom, breaking its spine under the violent impact, disabling it, which lead to it's death shortly after. Both Sten and the albino Leipard were terrified of his outburst. So much so that the surrogate fled in the night without so much as a goodbye. Leaving Sten to sort things out on his own.


Confused and abandoned the oddly colored Espurr sought out his mother the next day, starting a cycle that would last for months, years even. He spent much of his time searching for even a whisper of the Leipard's whereabouts but found nothing for a long time. Until one day during his visit to a local oasis he heard others talking of a Pokemon poacher that had killed an Albino Leipard, most likely for her delicate, gorgeous fur. Sten felt his rage bubble at the gossip and stormed off to avoid unneeded conflict. 


It took Sten two weeks to track down the human filth that killed his mother, spending much of this time convincing himself that this kill would not be out of vengeance but to protect others like himself. Regardless of what it was, he found the poacher and killed him in his sleep, silently clawing the man's throat open before fleeing. After the second murder Sten had committed he started to feel the guilt from his actions and spent weeks sulking in thought, trying to justify what he had done. But for the youngling there was no hope, he had turned himself into a monster.


For the next two months he spent his time moping about, avoiding contact with everyone. He rarely ate, hardly slept, and only really moved to quench his thirst. One evening while he was at the lake near his home, a young trainer challenged Sten. Weak from starvation, the oddly colored Espurr put up little resistance as the trainer captured him. His new trainer spent several weeks nursing him back to health despite the Espurr's protests. However once Sten recovered, he was introduced properly to the other Pokemon on the team, but Sten's seemingly cold hearted attitude did not earn him any friends. Instead he spent much of his time training alone, constantly refusing evolution. Fearing the power he might gain by becoming a Meowstic. 


It was years of tough battles and training before the infection struck. Sten's trainer did not hesitate to release their Pokemon even though they had put so much work and care into raising them. Sten scoffed at the cowardice of his previous trainer and began to travel, looking for survivors to assist. His killer instincts and prior training allowed the Espurr to survive in the wild easily. He was taken aback by the survivor he did meet. A young, brightly colored Zoroark escaping from the wreckage of a ship. Tiana was her name, and she was a beautiful young lady. If she wasn't so young, Sten might have fallen in love with her but her age was a barrier. However it did not stop him from introducing himself, and becoming a big brother figure of sorts for her. Since then they have been travelling across regions with the help of other pokemon to find large groups of survivors. 

From the day she hatched as a Zorua, Tiana was different. Her unsual coat lead her to stand out from others, but even moreso was her unusually thin, tall frame. She was always in poor health but no one knew why. Eventually her bright colors caused her to be captured by a human trainer. He noticed the young Zorua's frailty and took her to the closest Pokemon Center. Nurse Joy quickly diagnosed the child with Hyperthyroidism, and started her on treatments immediately. But in the mean time Tiana found herself eating large amounts of food to keep herself from losing too much weight to quickly. 


She remained in treatment for almost two years before she was fit to train, and to make up for the lost time, the young Zorua trained intensely and it only took nine months to become a power, and stunning Zoroark. Even with her illness and youth. Her new form finally allowed her to participate in the circus with her fellow team mates and she did so happily. But something always seemed off about her when she was left alone for too long. But no one really payed mind to it because they didn't understand Pokemon speak. So Tiana continued to practice with her LED poi to amuse the children, without setting things on fire. 


Tiana's act actually became so popular that she was rarely ever without at least one person with her. And the children often gifted her with small tokens of appreciation such as rechargeable glow stick bangles they had from the circus vendors. But sometimes they would give her other things like food, or in some cases clothes such as a spiked black collar, or a cyan messenger bag. She revelled in the praise and company, but one evening alone she snapped and began rampaging. Out of fear, the managers of the circus locked Tiana away, unsure of how to respond to her outburst. 


In her time of solitude Tiana was visited by many different doctors that attempted to discern the problem with her psyche. Without a way to speak with her, none could figure out the problem and so she remained locked up to the disdain of her trainer. When the infection hit, her trainer freed the lonely Zoroark from her prison, giving her the cyan bag filled with berries and other foods. Grateful, Tiana thanked her trainer and fled as he left for the evacuation boats. With a bag full of supplies, Tiana set off to seek out other living, trying to sort out her own mental health. For a while she joined a group on a shipwrecked boat, and found a Rainbow Wing while playing tag. Unfortunately, the party split up shortly after and in frustration she punched a hole in the hull of the ship before fleeing.


Shortly after she met Sten whom she grew fond of despite having no knowledge of his species. He became a big brother figure for her and since then they have spent their time travelling across the regions looking for groups of survivors.

Espurr is unable to learn giga impact through any means. It also says four years had passed, and makes no mention of battle training. How would he have been able to kill a much older Houndoom (which possesses a type advantage) in a single move?

Sorry I thought I put in that his adoptive mother knew the move and he used it via Assist.
But I changed it a little bit.
