Dean was always a happy child. He grew up on a small farm outside of Agate Village and was surrounded by Pokemon. There, people and Pokemon lived together in harmony, helping each other and learning from each other. Dean was always good about taking care of the smaller Pokemon, and was still brave enough to tend to the sick or injured Pokemon that were bigger than even him. When he was old enough, his parents and several other villagers pooled together to import a Pokemon egg for Dean for his birthday, and when it hatched a tiny little Larvesta rolled out. Thrilled, Dean took to raising the small bug and his parents saw what a natural he was with the hatchling. Though he was still a child, they helped Dean to set up sort of a little mini ranch, and when Dean was almost old enough to go on his journey he started collecting eggs from daycares where trainers who didn't want them to start his own team.

After several years, and after he had gone through his own journey, his Larvesta evolving into a brilliant Vulcarona. He came home not long after his sixth gym in Sinnoh and settled down back home and started on his ranch. He had found during his travels many different Pokemon and found that he wanted to help get Pokemon of all species to any Region, especially Orre where they were sorely lacking. Though he had very strict rules on who could adopt from him, wanting to make sure that his Pokemon went to good trainers, his business flourished. He soon had expanded to over 75 acres where his Pokemon were able to be as free as they wanted before going to new homes, inventing a new incubation method with his precious Vulcarona as the center of his hatchery. Just as he was at the peak of business, Cipher struck.

They attacked his ranch, destroying almost everything and caving his house in. They killed his male Vulcarona and stole almost all of his Pokemon, though he did see some of them escape through the fences thankfully. But they saw Dean as a liability and shot him point blank, leaving him for dead in the burning ruins of his home. The only thing that saved him was his lovely Serperior who dragged him out of the fire and sacrificed herself to keep him from the house collapsing on him. He was found almost a day later by police and taken to the hospital. It seemed the bullet passed just over his heart and while still incredibly painful and life-threatening, he did manage to pull through. It took several months of rehab and surgeries, but soon he was able to be released from the hospital, though now he had nowhere to go. His home, his Pokemon, were gone. So with a new determination he set out to get back at Cipher and started heading to wherever they were seen active. That's when the Epidemic hit...

Driven into hiding with the other humans because he refused to give up his Pokemon, Dean almost didn't make it to Cipher, though he got lucky with his refugee camp. There were a few members from Cipher hiding out among the other refugees and he was able to pick up where most of them were hiding out, and that they had a new technology to help 'listen in' to the Pokemon. Deciding to take the first risk of his life he waited until they were asleep and stole one of the translators for himself. It took him a few tries to figure out how to work it, or even to put in on, but once he did he was amazed at what it could do. He could understand any Pokemon that he came across! It was amazing! Setting his sights to where the Cipher grunts had said their hideout was he began to make his way across Orre with his two remaining Pokemon, praying that he might come across any of his other precious ones once he got there.

***On his new mission he found his way to Pyrite, where he discovered his prized Pokemon, Phoenix. She had escaped along with her mate Erebos but it was discovered that the Houndoom had fallen to the Epidemic. Phoenix had hidden him away for fear of him dying permanently but he escaped after an attack by a massive Mandibuzz, attacking their small group and only stopped once his was entombed by a Rock Tomb. After a small argument with Phoenix their ragtaf group decided to split up and find shelter, but another strange run of bad luck had them running from the old Pyrite arena as it fell out from under them into the dark chasm of the Under. Asche, the Ninetales's friend, falling along with it. Joining with her Dean now helps search for the missing Absol, not willing to let the poor boy suffer if he was injured. And once they were all together again they would resume their hunt for Cipher, and Dean would get payback for the bastards who left him for dead as well as get his beloved Pokemon back.
Appearance Dean is very feminine in his body type, and has always been that way. But underneath his lithe form is an undeniable strength. He is almost all muscle though it isn’t overly defined, and he wears loose cargo shorts and a loose shirt for free range of movement. Keeping a heavy coat tied around his waist for when it gets cold and a strong pair of boots because he walks everywhere is essential for this young man. His blond hair is kept behind him in a loose braid and his bangs fall lightly around his face accenting his angelic face. His blue eyes sparkle when presented with a challenge and are usually soft and caring the rest of the time. He has a single scar just above his heart from where Cipher shot him and a few burn scars on his back from being trapped in the burning barn.
Personality Dean is a very caring and understanding person, but the raid on his ranch and subsequent epidemic left him somewhat cold and distant when it comes to bringing up the past. He is still very patient when dealing with stressed Pokemon, and often does not need his communicator to know how they feel as he is a natural empath. He trusts Pokemon more than he does most people, especially since his encounter with Cipher, but knows that like humans not all Pokemon are good.

    **Taranis was rescued as a Mareep very early on in Michael’s mission to take down Cipher. He was given the name Sparks and was with Michael for every battle he ever had with the Shadow organization. Eventually, after Michael grew up, Taranis mentioned his embarrassment at still having such a childish nickname and Michael gave him one better suited to his power.

    • ”Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”

    • “The family you come from isn't as important as the family you're going to have.”
    • "I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that."

    Michael’s life started out very normal, for the most part. He can’t remember where he was actually born but all of his earliest memories start with his family already in the Pokemon HQ Labs in Orre. His mother and father were always around, at least in the beginning, but his mother soon became engrossed in her work as a scientist leaving Michael alone a lot with his dad. Michael adored his father and spent most of his time following him around and learning all about Pokemon training, with big dreams that he would one day leave Orre and travel one of the many other regions to fulfill his destiny as a real Pokemon Trainer. But alas, those dreams were short lived.

    All too soon his mother bore a second child, his little sister Jovi, and broke his father’s time with him in half. At first Michael despised his little sister, often being cruel to the small child just to make her cry, but after he was caught attempting to push her down the stairs that his father finally had enough and brought the rebellious youth to heel. His father taught young Michael how to take care of his sister, and when little Jovi hugged her big brother for the first time Michael knew he was hooked. The three of them spent nearly all of their time together until Michael had to start school, his mother no longer satisfied with privately tutoring him due to his advanced intelligence. And so off he was sent, with many of the lab inhabitants grateful to see the boisterous youth gone for a few months.

    It was while he was away at his first year of school that the news of Cipher and their nefarious plans involving strange creatures known as Shadow Pokemon swept through the region. Michael, like many of the other students at his school, were entranced by the story. Life in Orre was usually rather boring and predictable, but this was unlike anything they had ever seen. The first time Michael saw Wes, a boy barely older than him, standing up against a Shadow Pokemon, he knew what he wanted to do with his life. He was going to be a hero, just like Wes.

    He studied ridiculously hard after hearing about the defeat of Cipher, flying through his courses with more ease than should have been possible for someone his age. When properly motivated his teachers found that Michael far exceeded most of the other students and they decided to put him in advanced placement, in which he also tested even higher than they predicted. Finally they had to settle on having his intelligence properly tried and scored, and they found his IQ blew past that of most of his teachers and into prodigy territory. By the time his was 15 he was heading home, finished college and ready to start his life. Or so he thought.

    Life back at the lab became frighteningly routine, even more so after his father passed away, with Michael forced to apprentice with several scientists and aid them in their experiments. But what neither he, nor Professor Krane (who actually ran the facility) realized, was that he was not being taught but in fact used as a test subject. They pushed him into several emotional and physical stressor situations, gauging his responses and his success rates and in the end figured out exactly how to push Michael to do exactly what they wanted, when they wanted. So when Krane was kidnapped, and Michael encountered his first Shadow Pokemon, they were able to manipulate him into going after them himself.

    At first Michael didn’t realize the deception, going along with the easily influenced Professor Krane’s requests for help, because he still held on to his dream of being a hero. Wes was nowhere to be found when Cipher rose again and the region needed someone to stand up to them. So Michael did. He went everywhere he was told, did everything he was told, and after weeks of pushing through the region found himself face to face with head of Cipher and the infamous XD001. Shadow Lugia didn’t frighten him, in fact he pitied the magnificent creature. Forced to enslave himself to a worthless man like Greevil and unable to be free…it was more than Michael could stand.

    It was an awful battle with several of his pokemon, and even himself, getting injured trying to weaken Lugia to the point of snagging him away from Greevil but he finally did it. With Greevil dethroned Cipher fell into chaos, the two lead Admin revealing themselves to be Greevil’s twin sons and each taking a different stance on the fate of their organization. Eldes, the red headed twin, took Michael’s side and convinced his father to surrender letting him see a spark of hope in the older man’s future. He made a mental note to check in on the red head even as his blue haired twin spouted hateful and indignant things about Michael himself. There was probably no saving that one.

    The years that passed after Cipher fell were like a whirlwind. He kept up with Eldes well, even when he was in prison, and the two became close friends. He fought hard to get the older man out of prison when he learned of how he was being treated and wouldn’t rest until Eldes was released. Eventually his friend joined the International Police, working on this side of the law for a change, and despite some initial misgivings from his colleagues Eldes thrived there. Michael visited his friend often and he was the only person the youth could trust when tragedy struck a little too close to home.

    Michael learned quickly, after Cipher, about how he had been manipulated and abused by the scientists working under Krane and refused to let it go on any longer. Despite still holding a respect for Krane he held little left for his mother who had known and allowed it to continue, so he left home. During his absence the men who had used him turned their attentions to his sister, who had also begun to show the same level of intelligence, but she did not go as easily as Michael did. The young girl turned to drugs to cope with her living situation, much to Micahel’s dismay, and would often run away from home to stay with him. Every time she fled to his apartment in Gateon he would get her into rehab, and for a few months she would do really well. But she always backslid sooner or later. Finally, one day, he had enough of her breaking his heart and when she tried to run away to his place again he shut her out.

    She overdosed that night.

    It was nearly three days after Jovi died that anyone found her body, or at least reported it to the police, and Michael felt the guilt crush him instantly. He ran to Eldes and buried himself in his sorrows under the watchful gaze of his best friend, refusing to accept anyone else’s comfort or condolences. Eldes was the only person he trusted to see him so vulnerable and to share in the secret of his guilt. The older man tried several times to convince Michael that it wasn’t his fault, but ultimately he stopped trying. It helped that Michael started to get very good at faking happiness. If he could fool Eldes, he could fool anyone.

    But, despite wishing it wouldn’t, life moved on. He cut all ties with his mother and asked Eldes to help him get into the training program for the IPF, hoping that maybe he could atone for the sin of letting his sister die by helping imprison the men who got her that way.  He worked hard and with his sharp mind and single-minded dedication he graduated and was hired as a Rookie, working under Eldes for a brief probation period before being assigned to a department. Life was starting to look up when the world suddenly came crashing down.

    The Epidemic swept over all of the regions and forced Michael back home to try and grab the snag machine before someone could do something more nefarious with it during the riots. Sadly he arrived just in time to find his mother being torn into by his sister’s old Plusle and Minun, regretting that he was able to save her even though she never thought to save him. It pained him to put down his sister’s beloved pokemon but the idea of giving them a merciful death rather than living as mindless beasts gave him some small comfort. They were better off dead than as monsters. He was able to recover the snag machine with ease but the aura reader was damaged, but Krane and several of the other scientists were missing so he decided to swipe various components around the lab to try and fix it on his own later.

    He reported back to the fallout location in Kanto and found what remained of the IPF working under what soon became known as just Headquarters, or just HQ for short, but it was what he didn’t find scared him most. Eldes wasn’t there. A few of the others said he had been spotted fleeing the destruction of their headquarters but never returned, so Michael knew he had to find his friend. He promised to send back regular reports while he travelled but he was not going to be able to stay with them, he needed to find Eldes. Over the years the pair had saved each other more times than he could count, and he knew that without his best friend there was no one left in the world who truly needed him just as much as he needed them. That ginger was the only family he had left.

    So he travels across the regions, aiding those he can and giving mercy to those he can’t, tracking down his best friend in hopes of bringing him back home where he belongs. Along with any others he comes across along the way.

    After miraculously discovering Eldes hiding in a lighthouse in his old home of Gateon Port Michael thought that things would start looking brighter, but as usual the youth was incredibly naive to assume such in this new world the Epidemic had lay forth. Within hours of their reunion the two redheads were locked in a battle of wills, each trying to convince the other that their self-sacrificing idea was better than the others and which they were to follow. It all came to a head when some rather revealing things were said about each man leaving Michael bitter and broken, suddenly very aware of the depression he had buried deep in his heart since Jovi's death.

    Without reconciling the two former friends parted, a hollow space forming in Michael's soul where the comfort of another human had once occupied. As he turned to take one last look at the dwelling of his once best friend a frightening sight caught his eye, that of Lugia soaring across the heavens, and the vision brought back yet another haunting memory. Lugia was a Shadow again, his feathers as dark as the stormy sky in which he crossed, and he was headed straight for Citadark. Before their fallout Eldes had warned Michael of Ardos's resurgence and the then teenager knew he had to do anything he could to stop Ardos from getting his claws on the "perfected" Shadow Serum once again. He had to free Lugia, and he would do it with or without Eldes's help.

    It has been about four years since that day and Michael has grown into a man, but still no closer to finding a way to re-purify Lugia now that the resonance chambers are gone. So he heads to the home of the only other person known to purify Shadows to see if there is any clue he might uncover to solve this troubling mystery.***
    Accent Very slight American South, he has trained his enunciation to have the accent nearly gone. It will, however, go full American South if he is drunk or extremely tired. Or even sometimes when he is so upset he can’t be bothered to keep it in check.
    Appearance Michael is tall, lanky, with wild red hair only kept at bay by his goggles ( a necessary accessory for anyone living in the deserts of Orre) and a permanent grin. His preference for loose, comfortable clothing did not hinder him in the epidemic at all as most of his outfit is easy to maneuver in as well as offering extra cargo space and protection. The snag machine, with some adjustments for arm length, still fits well and functions normally.
    Religion Pantheisim-the belief that the Universe (or nature as the totality of everything) is identical with divinity, or that everything composes an all-encompassing, immanent god. Pantheists thus do not believe in a distinct personal or anthropomorphic god.
    Personality +Genuinely Caring+
    The interest Michael has in others is genuine, almost to a fault – when he believe in someone, he can become too involved in the other person's problems, place too much trust in them. Luckily, this trust tends to be a self-fulfilling prophesy, as his natural altruism and authenticity inspires those he cares about to become better themselves. But if he isn’t careful, he can easily overextend his optimism, sometimes pushing others further than they're ready or willing to go.
    A passionate altruist, sometimes even to a fault, he has an unyielding desire to do good. He’s never afraid to take the slings and arrows while standing up for the people and ideas he believes in. Warm and selfless, Michael genuinely believes that if he can just bring people together, they can do a world of good.
    A true team player. He recognizes that listening to other peoples' opinions, even when they contradict his own, is key to finding a solution that benefits everyone. He admits he doesn't have all the answers, and is often receptive to dissent, so long as it remains constructive.  He will even allow any rage vented at him to not affect his responsibility to see that team member through to the end.
    The very idea of letting down a person or cause he believes in is unthinkable. If it is physical possible, Michael can always be counted on to see it through. Especially if it was promised.
    Despite his rather naïve outlook, Michael has a natural charisma that draws people to him. Very outspoken, he has the ability to lead and inspire others to do things that they otherwise would not have thought possible.
    +Natural Leaders+
    More than seeking authority himself, Michael often ends up in leadership roles at the request of others, cheered on by the many admirers of his strong personality and positive vision.
    He takes family, dating, and relationships very seriously, selecting partners with an eye towards the long haul, rather than the more casual approach that might be expected from some. There's really no greater joy for Michael than being able to help along the goals of someone he cares about.
    When it comes to friendships, Michael is anything but passive. He will put active effort into maintaining these connections, viewing them as substantial and important, not something to let slip away through laziness or inattention. He takes genuine pleasure in getting to know other people, and has no trouble talking with people of all types and modes of thought. Even in disagreement, other perspectives are fascinating to Michael – though like most people, he connects best with individuals who share his principles and ideals.
    While he enjoys lending a helping hand, others may simply not have the energy or drive to keep up with it – creating strain if they are unfamiliar with or unwilling to see Michael’s genuine interest. Ultimately, Michael’s give and take can become stifling to those who are more interested in the moment than the future, or who are simply uninterested in the sort of self-improvement and goal-setting that Michael holds so dear.
    When personal conflict happens, his first instinct is to dig in his heels further. While willing to admit he doesn’t know everything, he will often push to be shown proof of a path more suitable towards what he believes to be the end goal. This can at times be helpful when it comes to work or helping to save someone without sacrificing his ideals.
    -Overly Idealistic-
    He can be easily caught off guard if he finds that, through circumstance or nature, or simple misunderstanding, people fight against him and defy the principles he’s adopted. However well-intentioned they may be. He is more likely to feel pity for this opposition than anger, and has earned him a reputation of naïveté.
    -Too Selfless-
    Frequently buries himself in his hopeful promises, feeling others' problems as his own and striving hard to meet his word. Has more than once spread himself too thin, and been left unable to help anyone.
    -Too Sensitive-
    While receptive to criticism, seeing it as a tool for leading a better team, it's easy for Michael to take it a little too much to heart. His sensitivity to others means that he sometimes feels problems that aren't his own and tries to fix things he can't fix, worrying if he is doing enough.
    -Fluctuating Self-Esteem-
    His self-esteem is defined by whether or not he is able to live up to his ideals, and sometimes ask for criticism more out of insecurity than out of confidence. He us always wondering what he could do better. If he fails to meet a goal or to help someone he said he would help, his self-confidence will plummet.
    -Struggle to Make Tough Decisions-
    If caught between a rock and a hard place, Michael can be stricken with paralysis, imagining all the consequences of his actions, especially if those consequences are humanitarian.
    His tendency to avoid any kind of conflict, sometimes even sacrificing his own principles to keep the peace, can lead to long-term problems if these efforts never fully resolve the underlying issues that they mask. Michael invests his emotions wholly in his relationships, and is sometimes so eager to please that it actually undermines the relationship – leading to resentment and even the failure of the relationship. When this happens, he experiences strong senses of guilt and betrayal, as he sees all of his efforts slip away. This is especially true in the case of his sister, Jovi. When this happens he will often fall into a quiet, repressive depression.
    Jovi’s death left Michael in a near permanent state of depression. He has gotten very good at hiding it, even from his best friend, however it continues to plague his every decision. The circumstances regarding her death leave him questioning even the most basic of emotional connections, fearful that he will let down another loved one. He places all of the blame of squarely on his shoulders.

    • Eldes – FORMER-Best friend in the whole world, his mentor in the IPF, and currently just the man who shattered his soul and tossed him to the winds.
    • Wes – Childhood hero.
    • Justy – Strange, yet helpful, guy from Phenac. Helped force Cipher out of town.
    • Ardos – Evil man who needs to be locked up. Not only for Cipher’s wrongdoings but because he hurt Eldes. Don’t like him. Nope.
