"You cant change me, you cant make me, you dont even know me."
From birth the Shinx was different, the world would not let her be normal. Her shiny fur dazzled, overshadowing her siblings as the pick of the litter. Even the normal shiny palette couldn't not be allowed though. During her first few days of life her true colors came in, the black fading and orange deepening. When she finally opened her eyes the Shinx earned her name: Sorrel, for the odd green color mixed with her red points.
While her shininess made her stand out visually from the other members of her family Sorrel's early life was otherwise unaffected. Her mother, a very proud Luxray, treated all her kits the same, preparing them for the role they would eventually lead in the pride. She and her sisters would be the hunters while the males would be the defenders.
"Shinx is a quadruped, feline Pokémon resembling a lion cub or lynx kitten. Its front half is light blue, while the rear is black. There is a short tuft of fur on its head and smaller tufts on each cheek. The top tuft is smaller on the female Shinx. It has large, oval ears with yellow, star-shaped markings on the insides, yellow eyes, and a tiny, red nose. Whenever its mouth is open, small fangs can be seen in its upper jaw. A black marking encircles its neck like a collar and there are yellow bands above its forepaws. The hind paws are black on the male Shinx and blue on the female. Spiked fur surrounds the base of its long tail, which is tipped with a yellow star shape. If it senses danger, its fur can gleam brightly to blind predators so it can flee. Electricity is produced by the extension and contraction of muscles in this Pokémon’s forelegs."
While Sorrel was born with a shiny pallet near exact to that of a normal shiny life would not allow her even that normality, as her true colors came in over her first few days of life. She still has the main bright golden-yellow color of a shiny Shinx but the black parts of her fur faded out to brown. To go with this the usually orange parts are a dull, dark red instead. Her star shaped red fur (the inside of her ear and tail) is shaped like a five pointed star as opposed to the normal four pointed one. She is a bit shorter then average, much to her dismay.
Her eyes are green and have been since birth. Sorrel's fur is very soft, fluffy, and a bit ruffled. Some may describe her as scruffy as she lets it stick out all over the place for a more 'rugged' look.
Around her neck she wears a lavender, white, and dark chartreuse scarf that no one is allowed to touch.
Sorrel is a bold Shinx, adventurous and ready to learn and explore. She is a bit headstrong, finding herself charging into trouble more often then she would like to admit, but to her it gets things done. More often then not she lets her instincts guide her and will follow her gut feeling in times of stress as she has a bad habit of overthinking things. Her people skills are not great and she can get pretty feisty and passive aggressive, but she doesn't mean bad by it. Sorrel is not good at handling being bossed around she will not back downand is not afraid to speak her mind even to someone much larger then herself.
She is an odd mix of someone who likes to sit back and enjoy the little things and one who has difficulty being patient. As such, there are times she is really quiet and others where she will take matters into her on hands (physically or verbally). Some would call her a chatterbox and others a shadow, which boils down to being an introvert. Truly, its a matter of her current company for how she will act.
She tries to live by the rule "treat others as you wish to be treated" but has a horrible habit of jumping to conclusions. Its difficult for her to believe that others could be nice without an ulterior motive, but usually she keeps her suspicion to herself and feigns complete trust and friendship for her own benefit.
However, she is also a troubled youth. She is small and short, bringing on a small Napoleon Complex. Just to show that she can, even if she cant, Sorrel will take on Pokemon/tasks too big for her, and fail miserably. Afterward, she is a rather poor loser and has a bad problem with holding grudges when upset or wronged. Usually she is too stubborn for her on good and ends up regretting things and taking it too personally. Despite her own short comings she is really proud, especially of any achievements she may make.
For as long as she can remember she hasn't been happy with who she is. Often it feels like everybody is out to attack her identity, though its really all in her head. Only recently has she been introduced to the world of gender identities that aren't just black and white. As such, she is a little obsessed and the discovery of self has taken over a lot of her thoughts. Some would even say she thinks solely of herself now, too caught up in it all to really pay attention to whats going on around her or the bigger picture.
Sorrel really wants to find another Pokemon with the same thought pattern as she is desperate for verification. However, other then the Breloom, she has not found anyone to talk to about it and it has built up in her head in nasty ways. Currently searching for herself and its taking her to weird places in the real world and her mind.
Considers her own identity in a state of utter crisis but she refuses to admit it to others, how painful it is, and show how far inside her own head she really is. Might snap at being labeled in any way and finds it to be a direct attack against her being. She is really suspicious of others, finding it hard to trust, but can not tell if its paranoia or not.
Doesn't consider the universe kind or her friend. Really, she just wants to feel normal, as she is in a lot of pain and malaise, but it seems everything is against her. Her shininess, ability, and movepool are some primary examples. Even hunting is hard for her, a natural predator. She is a gifted tracker and stalker but finds it horridly hard to make the kill. With all these factors merely existing this way is pain. Yet all she wants is to find a way to accept herself, not change herself. Through it all she still believes there is hope.
- Please note that while her identity is a major part of her thoughts and feelings its not the only part of her character. The character herself is obsessed with it at current, so it is a major influence to near all her actions, thus the massive chunk in personality.
- While this isnt factual, her views have warped her view of her ability, feeling it kick in as jealousy against cisfemales for having "the easy life." This doesn't really apply to undead.
- Biological father is a Sandslash but is not aware of this. Her mother had a fling with a Sandslash but does not know he sired her offspring instead of her mate.
- Has chosen not to let herself evolve until she is happy with herself. If she wishes to accept who she is now then changing herself could be disastrous. She will evolve when she is ready.
- Actually gonna label on this profile that this character was originally meant to help me work through some personal things. However, she has branched away from her original concept and is a lot more then that now.
