•This Pokemon was once his sister’s companion alongside her rescued Liepard

•Angey mode; seriously, just read his in-game dialogue. When he gets mad, he gets MAD. Anger is the main emotion that drives him forward-it was what carried his crusade against Plasma, and continues now in the epidemic. Emotional dysregulation is his major symptom, mainly involving his feelings often being stuck at “100%”-unlike many borderline people, Hyu rarely experiences being in a state of chronic emptiness/numbness, but it does happen on occasion
-(Of course, should be noted it’s not only anger he experiences strongly, it’s all emotions)

•A very loyal friend through and through-while certainly not perfect (he is a teenager), Hyu is kind and encouraging to the people he cares for, often showing a softer side that might not be expected of him. This goes for his Pokemon too; Hyu treats them with the utmost respect and devotion. Wants the people he loves to be happy and prioritizes what he sees as their needs
-Relevant to his relationships and interactions w/ people: While Hyu does experience splitting, most of it stays internalized; mainly involves him becoming overly dependent and then overthinking about secretly being hated
(for those who don’t go through splitting, basically it’s when your view of something or someone completely flips opposite; a splitting episode can happen at any time, for any reason, and how long it takes varies)

•Hyu acts pretty flippant towards adults, a tendency created from his encounters with Team Plasma and the many shitty people involved with them. Living in Driftveil as it is now isn’t helping; he’s learned to see most adults as either cruel, useless, or both. There are some exceptions from his journey with Mei, but even there he has become bitter; after all, none of them could stop the epidemic. Adults try to say a lot of ‘wise’ things, but to Hyu, it’s become all pointless nonsense
-He doesn’t like it when adults assume he can’t take care of himself; Hyu is more competent at keeping himself alive and his environment in order than many people older than him

•He has trauma involving abandonment; stemming from the death of his grandfather in his youth, Hyu becomes upset and resentful if he thinks someone close to him is going to leave him behind. His two modes when perceiving abandonment are either being overly clingy or acting cold, distant; sometimes they happen at the same time, contradictory as it may sound
-He dedicates himself to other people completely and his emotional attachments are powerful, so the pain of even imagined rejection is tenfold for him; this is why Hyu needs validation and reassurance often, though he doesn’t tend to outright ask for it

•Has gone through a lot of painful shit in his life without fully processing most of it-already fragile before the epidemic, things have only become worse for the boy. The environment he’s in isn’t helping, either. Unwilling to reach out, and surrounded by people who would rather pretend nothing bad is happening around them, Hyu has no way to truly cope with his grief and easily downward spirals as a result
-Blames himself for all that has ever gone wrong in his life, but is especially guilt-ridden over the death of his younger sister

•As of right now, he’s trying to be strong and act like the emotional support for his friend Nate, who has only recently reunited with him after something very horrible happened. Hyu doesn’t have the full details of what went down on that evacuation ship, but judging by the state of his friend and all the other people, it must’ve been beyond awful. Because of this, he has taken it upon himself to watch over Nate and defend him both from normal dangers and the fake-positive cruelty of the townspeople. This is normal for Hyu, as he used to care for his little sister and has a protective instinct for all his loved ones as a result
