|Quote||"... I don't have an opinion."|
|History||He didn't know what numbers meant at first.|
He could have easily mistaken what they called him for "Atesevntew," instead of a dehumanizing jumble, and for the longest time, he simply assumed he had a regular name just the same as anyone else. It went without saying that his assumption was disproved relatively quickly.
|Appearance||His droopy, tattered appearance fits his personality well; 872 looks much like the typical Radeon, with light purple fur, red eyes and a set of ears and a tail that appear as though they've been through the wringer. His gaze is usually glazed and distant, avoiding eye contact whenever possible, and he keeps his head down more often than not. The way that he holds himself isn't so much timid as it is closed off and uninviting, indicating a strong desire to be overlooked and left alone.|
His muzzle and ears are streaked with several long, thin scars as a result of past battles, with a few other wounds of a similar fashion scattered around his body. On his inner back-left leg, there is a small tattoo of the numbers that make up his name, though as it's in an unusual spot, it typically doesn't come up much in conversation, a fact that 872 is grateful for as he is both uncomfortable with and unsure how to explain it.
The collar around his neck is made from old and cracking leather that has grown uncomfortably tight after evolution. The area around it is clearly raw and irritated, though 872 does not express much interest in removing it, whether out of some twisted notion of loyalty or attachment to the object in question.
|Accent||Speaks with a very slight drawl. His voice is low and husky, and he typically never raises it above a conversational tone, even when sufficiently enraged. 872 typically prefers to speak with as few words as possible, getting his point across and not much else.|
|Motivation||To find a purpose beyond simply being a pawn for others and/or figure out who he really is.|
|Personality||Quiet and timid, 872 much prefers to keep his mouth shut and allow others to do the talking for him, his logic being it makes little sense to speak up unless something is happening that he strongly disagrees with. As his life has been one of following orders, he typically does not act of his own accord, instead preferring to wait for someone else to command him to do something instead. As a result, it comes as little surprise that it's relatively easy to rope him into being the "muscle" for other individuals; it doesn't take much prodding to convince 872 to do someone's dirty work for them.|
Tired is a word that works very well to describe him; everything from the way that he speaks to the manner in which he holds himself indicated that the Poison type is nothing short of weary.
Underneath his quiet, seemingly empty exterior, he does have a friendlier side, though the moments during which it shines through are rare and highly situational. When interacting with someone he is sufficiently fond of, 872 can be surprisingly warm and supportive, albeit almost brutally honest at times- he very rarely lies. He's an exceptionally self-sacrificing individual, willing to give the last of his food on an empty stomach to another Pokemon should he have formed a friendly relationship with them. Though humans make him feel wary and have a tendency to pull up unpleasant memories, he can be won over if given enough time and effort.
He also leans towards being protective over others and shows visible discomfort whenever forced to harm another Pokemon that isn't sick. Pokemon much younger than him also seem to draw out a kinder side of the Poison type, and he'll often do whatever he can to ensure their comfort and safety.
|User Notes||-USER NOTES|
|Team notes||Easily pushed around and feels compelled to follow orders. Has no backbone whatsoever.|
|Development Notes||Desperately searching for a purpose in life. Isn't sure how to control himself and often listens to others without question as a result because obeying orders is how he has always done everything.|
Eventually he'll start opening up bit by bit and discovering a true sense of self, possibly even developing a backbone.
