"You're the only one who has exactly the same thing as me."
He has difficulty remembering much of anything, but he'll always remember the cold, bright lights that he was born under. He had been under the care of humans before he even hatched from his egg, injected with hormones and serums and more chemicals than he cared to learn the names to. The MAGI project, they had called it; a series of experiments enforced by strict mental conditioning and morally questionable methods intended to produce the perfect Pokemon- all funded and sponsored by less than legal means, of course. He was meant to be a weapon from the moment his first breath entered his lungs, ignorant to the fate that had been thrust upon him against his will.
Things were much simpler back then.
His EVs were meticulously manipulated, along with his moveset. He started out small, fighting other Pokemon in a controlled environment, expanding his repertoire and mastering new attacks one by one. It was all a game, at first, and he was rewarded for being exceptionally vicious and ruthless. Ignorant to the moral wrongness of harming others for his own amusement- in fact, Judal was intentionally raised to have little to nothing in the way of morals at all, and intentionally so- he embraced his violent side and became a complete terror to go up against in a battle.
Just as planned.
Eventually came the day that Judal was due for a test out in the field- something simple, at first, just battling a nameless trainer who was completely ignorant as to what they were going up against- and he passed with flying colors, riddling his opponent with shards of ice from his Hidden Power attack.
It was fun. He didn't really see why that stupid human was getting so worked up over things, and quite frankly, he didn't care.
From that day onwards, Judal gained a little bit of false "freedom," bit by bit. Deemed a success, the majority of his lab rat days were over, and he was instead used to subdue other, stronger Pokemon for capture- or simply as a weapon to cause chaos whenever it was deemed necessary. Judal never really questioned what he was ordered to do; he simply did it, because violence and war and fighting were all fun to him. He was also allowed to venture out from the labs he had been born in and into the house upstairs.
It was the largest building he had ever been in before- a palace, in his eyes. And thus, the Pokemon inhabiting it were all royalty.
"I don't wish to rely on his power."
so many family problems
"If this world rejects us, then..."
"... We will destroy this world and create it anew."
|Appearance||"Umbreon has a sleek black body with four slender legs and crimson eyes. There are two pairs of pointed teeth visible when its mouth is open, one in the upper jaw and one in the lower. It has long pointed ears and a bushy tail, each with a yellow band around them. Its forehead and legs have yellow rings on them. Its yellow markings glow at night and strike fear into anyone nearby. It hides in the darkness while waiting for its opponents, and its yellow rings glow when it leaps to attack. It is also capable of spraying a poisonous sweat whenever it gets agitated."|
Judal looks much like the typical Umbreon in appearance. His body is lithe and lightly muscled, and his eyes glow a sinister red. He usually comes off as playful and relatively relaxed, though he can switch to violence in the blink of an eye. His most cheerful expressions are his least genuine, and he tends to do or say the most terrible things with a smile on his face.
"Leafeon is a mammalian, quadruped Pokémon. Its body is tan with dark brown paws. It has several green sprouts growing all over it with the longest one on its head. Leafeon's ears and tail have a leafy appearance. This Pokémon’s cellular structure is similar to plants, which allows it to perform photosynthesis and purify the air around it by sleeping under patches of sunshine. It is a pacifistic Pokémon, preferring not to fight."
Hakuryuu also looks like an average member of his species, save for the fact that the entire left side of his body is riddled with scars. The "leaf" portions of his ear and tail on that side seem to be burnt and wilting, and he is missing the majority of his left-front foreleg. At birth, his eyes were both dark blue. However, after the fire, the "damaged" one is now significantly lighter.
|Personality||Mature is not a word one would really use to describe Judal. Destructive, yes. Manipulative? Violent? Childish? Yes, yes, and yes. But mature is most certainly about as far from the Umbreon as one can possibly get; he definitely isn't an individual one would ever want to see capable of throwing great amounts of power around, and yet he does exactly that on a regular basis- usually with explosive results.|
He becomes bored easily, and without proper entertainment, is known for stirring up trouble in a variety of ways, none of them good. His upbringing has led to the Dark type developing a very skewed set of morals- which is to say, he doesn't really have them- something he is vaguely aware of to an extent, but hasn't put forth the effort to change in any way. He doesn't really get how to act like other Pokemon, and though he has something vaguely resembling a heart deep down somewhere, he shows it in his own Judal-y way.
He seems to switch back and forth between colorful bursts of emotion and apathy, depending on the situation and how interested he is at any given time. The same could be said for his feelings about other Pokemon as well; when he isn't rude and uncaring, he's absolutely fascinated- though that doesn't guarantee by any means that he'll be polite- and there's really no middle ground. He can be very persistent when it comes to getting what he wants at times, and isn't above using underhanded tactics or just flat out whining to obtain it.
He's also a very good actor as well, and uses it to his advantage- both to manipulate others, and to also flat-out screw with them.
Essentially acting as the "face" of their operations, Hakuryuu comes off as infinitely more approachable than his violent partner. At first glance, the Leafeon appears to be a relatively polite, well-mannered Pokemon, a front that isn't exactly a lie. However, the pleasant first impression Hakuryuu exudes does a very good job of hiding his more undesirable qualities. There is, after all, a reason why such a seemingly kind Pokemon is traveling with someone as comparatively terrible as Judal; he shares more in common with his companion than what one might initially assume.
He can be extraordinarily ruthless when it comes to accomplishing his goals, and is more than willing to make sacrifices once he puts his mind to something, no matter what the cost. Being told that he is wrong in his thinking seriously irks him, and though he isn't as quick to resort to violent measures as his companion, it is possible to provoke him into action. He thinks little of using others as stepping stones if it helps bring him one step closer to his goal, even threatening to leave Judal behind on occasion if he doesn't continue to keep up with him and pull his weight. The Umbreon tends to passively encourage his more unsavory traits, acting both as a source of corruption, and becoming increasingly corrupted himself in turn.
When he was younger, he harbored a slight inferiority complex, and was known to be a bit of a crybaby. He seems to have "gotten over" said traits for the most part, however, becoming increasingly cold and callous as time goes on. "Old" Hakuryuu still shows through on occasion in his "friendlier" persona, though.
|User Notes||Based on Judal/Judar and Hakuryuu Ren from Magi- Labyrinth of Magic.|
Physically, Hakuryuu is stronger than Judal. However, Judal is very powerful specially, despite being an Umbreon and more naturally geared towards defense.
Loves Pecha berries. Dislikes Bitter and Spicy berries, and would rather go hungry than be forced to eat them.
He will, however, make it a point to complain loudly about this, regardless.
Was more or less manipulated into evolving; he never formed any significant bonds with any humans. Instead, he was evolved through a combination of grooming, leveling and vitamins.
Believes that the epidemic is probably one of the best things to ever happen to him, and doesn't see much of a downside to it.
Acts very casual most of the time, but someone harming Hakuryuu will probably lead to him attempting to tear out their spine out of spite. Can be protective, though not in an overbearing manner as he really, really likes seeing Hakuryuu let loose.
Is probably the only one with any sort of handle on Judal; while the Umbreon is more than capable of acting on his own, he'll usually default to whatever Hakuryuu tells him to do.
Does not share Judal's views on the epidemic being a good thing- though he's willing to take advantage of it- and quite frankly, isn't very happy to be stuck with him. He is, however, slowly beginning to warm up to him.
There's a small part of him that acknowledges what he is doing is wrong, but he's too preoccupied with revenge to consciously recognize it.
Is better with plants than even most Leafeon.
Doesn't understand why Judal insists on calling him his King sometimes, but he's more or less given up on attempting to discourage such behavior.
