|No more what ifs.
•Though she already stands out by default due to her significant height, her self-assured and confident nature makes Kamitsure even more impossible to overlook. Her posture always seems to be on point (I have no clue how she does it).
•Has naturally black hair, though she used to either dye it blonde or add silver streaks, the latter of which has long since faded. It’s not as long with the sides as it was in her Gym Leader days, but Kamitsure still has to keep her normally eye-level bangs in hair clips. The hair clips are in the shape of Emolga, and she has a ton of them.
•Wears an old aviator jacket given to her by Skyla. The rest of her outfits includes the following: a dark orange plaid button up, dark brown cargo pants (she likes the pockets lol), and a pair of sturdy boots she used to wear around the areas of Nimbasa that often underwent renovation. Worn down quite a bit after years of travel, but are high quality and still holding on as a result.
•Friendly and approachable, provided the person/people she’s interacting with treat her and her Pokemon with at least some level of decency. She can get along well with most others and has retained a lot of charisma from her Gym Leader days; she knows how to get people talking about themselves and will try to tell jokes despite being absolutely terrible at them. Kamitsure can 100% act as a balance of any group, as she’s already used to working through tension and getting wildly different personalities to work together.
•While rarely the one to initiate a fight or act aggressive by default, Kamitsure is more than ready to defend herself and her team if pushed. This only applies towards other people and living Pokemon, however-she has zero tolerance for the undead out of a fear for the safety and lives of her own companions. Having already lost several Pokemon, her Gym team included, Kamitsure is not willing to ever risk the rest becoming infected.
•Has a strong backbone. Kamitsure is not at all tolerant of being treated like trash, nor will she stand for the bullying of other people. If someone condescends to her or tries to throw their weight around, she will bite back at them and try to make them feel either angry towards her or ashamed of themselves. She isn’t willing to give up space to malicious people and won’t back down even if they try further insulting or threatening her. Intimidation is not a tactic that often works on Kamitsure. She’ll defend anyone being treated in a way they don’t deserve, even if it potentially puts her in harm’s way.
•Having been in the celebrity spotlight for most of her life alongside her career as a Gym Leader, Kamitsure is very conscious of how others view her personality and actions. One of her biggest anxieties in pre-epidemic days was whether or not she was a positive influence for her fans, or what kind of energy she was cultivating with her audience. This fear hasn’t entirely left her, either. Knowing that most of her Pokemon look to her to be a steady emotional support, Kamitsure does what she can to keep her head on straight and her issues firmly under wraps. If she ever encounters other humans, the same thing will happen with them as well, especially if they’re younger than her.
•She has a bit of a impulsive, thrill ride streak, and secretly loves the feeling of danger and adrenaline rushing in her veins, of wind tearing through her hair. Kamitsure sees this trait as embarrassing, immature in a way people don’t expect of her, which is why she prefers to hide it despite normally being unafraid of such things. Her signature love of rollercoasters stems from this part of her personality, and Kamitsure had other thrill-seeking hobbies before as well-skydiving being a big one, considering her friendship with Skyla.
•Her once seemingly unbreakable confidence has several new fractures, some deeper than others. The worst of them is, like so many other people, the death of several Pokemon she was close with. Her entire Gym team-Usagi’s daughter and the two Emolga sisters-are gone now, and her Manectric Luna is deceased as well, losses that never stop weighing on her. Kamitsure feels as though she had failed them-failed them the same way she failed the people of Nimbasa. This guilt and trauma has brought back all her self-doubt with a vengeance, and she second guesses herself now far more than she ever has in her entire life.
•While it may seem petty on the surface, Kamitsure longs for the interests she once had-fashion and music being the big two, of course. She misses her shows, listening to music with her favorite headphones, watching anime-anything that she once enjoyed. Bright colored clothing and playful accessories might be seen as a silly thing to wish for in certain circumstances, but that doesn’t stop Kamitsure from wanting them. To keep all their minds from melting due to boredom, she talks a lot with her Pokemon and makes up random games with them as they travel.
|•While Elesa is her English localized name, I’ve chosen to use her original Japanese name Kamitsure instead.
