|History||Born from an Absol father and a Houndoom mother an accident in the womb caused the fetuses to fuse and instead of laying the expected 3-5 eggs of a litter there was instead one oversize one from which the three headed pup was born. Being heavy on his paws and with only one head having control of the body the pup was clumsy and strange. Its unnerving appearance lead to its abandonment younger than usual, as soon as the pup's unusual father was sure he could survive on his own. The young Houndour, rejected by any pack, was left to scavenge for himself and soon ended up wandering into the human settlements. Never being part of a pack or considering himself unusual the Houndour worked in co-operation rather than contest with his heads. |
The three wandered the streets and night, on a close look out for food. Caught going through an upturned rubbish bin the little Houndour was captured by a human who mistook him for a pack of three. On discovering the dark type's mutation the strange Houndour was handed over to the authorities and then purchased by a local wealthy family as a guard-dog. With some TMs and careful training the young pup began his training but soon proved to be lacking in discipline. He was simply too cheerful to take things seriously, treating his training as a game. After the wealthy couple's son demanded a puppy the odd Houndour was entrusted to him as his first pokemon. Never leaving the mansion the three-headed dog was trained as both pet and protector of the child. The Houndour went everywhere with the child, always looking out for danger with its three heads. It was his new trainer's responsibility to train the pup and keep him disciplined. Battling was as much a part of the newly named Spot's day as lunch or a walk. He grew up quickly and strong despite his deformity and, being kept in the house and surrounding grounds, never noticed anything odd about himself. As he grew older alongside his trainer he eventually came to evolve.
At the side of his trainer Spot was an attentive guardian and loving pet. The three headed hellhound scared away trouble with his appearance alone and never had to fight for anything outside of fun and exercise. His trainer cared deeply about him, he had food and shelter and lots of humans to play with. His life was happy until the day he went walking with his human and they were attacked. It was the first time the Houndoom had seriously had to fight another pokemon. He was separated from his trainer in the scuffle and, though he managed to save his human he was lost in the snow. While his trainer was rescued the three-headed Houndoom was left behind.
|Appearance||"Houndoom is a quadruped, canine Pokémon that is mainly black with a long orange snout and an orange underbelly. It has small, red eyes and a black nose. Around its neck is a white band with a small skull-shaped pendant on its throat. There are two white bands on each of its ankles, as well as three rib-like ridges on its back. Houndoom has a long, skinny tail with a triangular tip and three clawed toes on each paw. On top of its head is a pair of long, curved gray horns. These horns are smaller on the female than the male."|
A bulky Houndoom with three separate heads. Each head looks a different direction, making sneaking up on Spot to be near impossible. By value of his strange appearance he unnerves others just by being nearby. Because of this he keeps himself low and He is younger than his appearance suggests. when angered all three heads breathe fire. In a black collar around his neck hangs a Life Orb and a silver tag with the name "Spot". As the head with the most sharply raked back horns this head is the leader and controls the body. The other two heads are capable of speech and independent thought but cannot control the body. He is very top heavy and has great strength in his upper half. The muscles of his forelegs are developed for crushing.
|Personality||"In a Houndoom pack, the one with its horns raked sharply towards the back serves a leadership role. Leadership is determined by fights within the pack. Its gut is full of toxins, which are used to create fire. This gives Houndoom's fire a foul odor and the wounds it inflicts will never heal. Houndoom appears near volcanic areas. Its howling induces shivering in other Pokémon, and often sends them scurrying back to their nests."|
Spot is actually a giant softy. His unusual appearance has frightened off most opponents before having to fight so he is seldom first to strike. When he does fight he does it with all his strength. Despite being an adult he has the naive nature of a puppy. Having spent no time around others of his own kind he has never had to fight for dominance and instead always aims for cooperation. He answers to Spot as a whole and his individual heads answer to Cer, Ber and Rus accordingly. Cer is always looking back to his previous life and reminiscing. He will not acknowledge the existence of others until he has known them a long time. Of the three he is the hardest to impress as he constantly judges against the standards of the past. He is prone to melancholy and the most sober. Ber is the head with the sharpest raked back horns and has the leadership role. He focuses only on the challenge in front of him with enthusiasm. He doesn't fear the mistakes of the past or the uncertain future. Ber has a puppy-like attitude and just enjoys the moment he is living in. Rus is the head with the curled horns and always looks to the future. He is the most timid of the three, constantly uncertain of their chances of survival. He is the one to look ahead for anything that could cause problems and inform the others before things get too bad. Decision-making is left up to all three with Ber having the deciding vote. They will all talk among themselves when alone but when around others only one head will talk at a time to avoid confusion. They are very friendly and generally cheerful. Spot is always eager to make new friends.

-Based on Cerberus from Greek Mythology. One head looks to the past, one to the present and one to the future. Having been referred to as 'a Cerberus' by the staff of the house he thinks it is his species name.
-Treats fighting as a game as he has never been in a fight that didn't have treats as a reward. He is rather good at it.
-First response to danger is to stand in front of others and use Protect, only rarely will he resort to using his other moves. He will draw attackers attention to him with Taunt then either land continuous Sucker Punches or a searing Fire Blast to drive back an enemy. He doesn't realize his Life Orb is why doing this is draining.
