|Theme(s)||Snow in Summer [Nier OST]|
|Biological Sex||Fuck you|
|Gender Identity||Transgender boy (he/him)|
|Region of origin||Unova | Nimbasa City|
|Occupation||Former trainer, evacuee|
|Party||All four of his Pokemon were infected and died prior to arriving in Driftveil. His former team included:|
|Accent||Has a very soft voice, and a tendency to whisper most of what he says. This is likely due to how he tried to keep silent on the evac ship out of both fear and a belief he wouldn’t make it out alive.|
|Religion||Before boarding at Driftveil, he prayed every day to Zekrom and Reshiram to let him die.|
|Personality||•Intense trauma in a short span of time has left him emotionally fragile. Will both emotionally and if possible, physically cling to anyone he deems safe as a coping mechanism. Hides behind other people if overwhelmed.|
Raised voices terrify him, anger in general causes him to either flee or freeze up; he can be reduced to tears in an instant if he believes he is in danger.
Triggered by the smell of salt, vomit, fog, blood/gore, and specific species of Pokemon: Serperior, Arcanine, Lucario, Liepard. Will also not willingly go near bodies of water.
•Quiet, so quiet you might not even notice he’s there. He doesn’t speak much even on a good day, and when he does talk, his voice is so soft that it’s easily missed.
While on the ship, he kept silent to avoid painting a target on his back; this behavior will carry over to his life in Driftveil. You’re safer when nobody thinks you’re there. A dead boy walking shouldn’t speak, anyway.
There’s a measure of self-loathing involved too, as Nate has grown to despise many things about himself, his voice included.
•Carries strong feelings of survivor’s guilt with him during every waking hour. Having been saved by someone only for them to be killed immediately after is a heavy burden upon him, to the point he wishes that they had left him to die.
That every one of his Pokemon also died to protect him only makes it all worse; they deserved to live, not him. Nate believes his own life is not worth any of these sacrifices, only staying alive so that they did not die meaninglessly
