    Quote "You reap what you sow."
    History Venga was born to a woman in Pyrite town who only wanted him for one thing, and to that end, she did her best to keep him fed and his needs met. She didn't love her son, and as his face carried traces of his father, she even hated him as he grew. When he reached the point to where he could understand her words, she started a steady drip of poisonous words that would make him hate his father and even himself due to carrying his father's DNA. He didn't know anything else in his life, and she kept her hatred of Venga fairly tempered.

    Everything he learned was with the understanding that it would help him find his father and kill him for what he did to Venga's mother. He learned how to read, how to fight, how to take care of himself when he finally left, and a myriad of other things to help him once he left the relative safety of his home. They were never truly safe given how dangerous Pyrite could be, but that was all the more reason for him to learn how to defend himself. He was able to see the depravity of the streets when he was out with his mother, and this was how she kept him from looking for the good there. If he was afraid of almost everyone, then no one could get to him and tell him that how he was being raised was horrifically wrong.

    The only thing that slipped through the cracks, and something she didn't count on, was that Venga possessed a lot of empathy. She tried to scare him out of it, but there were times she didn't see him slipping something to those he saw that were in need. This lead to him feeding a starving Murkrow that hid amongst the squalor of the town, and the bird started to follow him home. It was good at hiding from people, and Venga grew fond of the spunky Murkrow as time passed.

    Once he was thirteen, he was deemed old and strong enough to start his mission, and his mother lent him her Gardevoir to ensure his safety. He left the house with supplies and some money, and unfortunately caught the eye of an opportunistic thief. About halfway out of pyrite in a side alley, the thief attacked Venga. What experience Venga had with close quarters fighting saved him, as he was able to dodge the knife attack. Unfortunately, the thief possessed a Murkrow that attacked Venga and went for the face. The beak got awfully close to his right eye, and it took Venga's Murkrow friend to chase the threatening bird away. Natasha intervened and held the thief in a stranglehold until the owned Murkrow stopped fighting. Once that fight was resolved, she threw the human into a wall and carried Venga to the nearest place he could be patched up in.

    Due to the wound on his head, he was bleeding a lot, and the hospital didn't want to release him for a few days. They gave him shots, patched his wounds, and all he could think of was that he wanted to get out. They wanted information on his parents, and he didn't want his mother to think he had already failed her. He kept his mouth shut and refused to talk. Once night rolled around, he waited until a nurse had done her nightly check in and escaped out of a window. The Murkrow reunited with him in the street, and he begged Natasha to let him keep him. She couldn't find an easy way to argue the point, so she allowed the boy to have a Pokemon. Mostly because she knew she could kill it if it became a problem.

    He was far away from Pyrite once the Epidemic hit, but he went back instantly in an attempt to save his mother. Part of this was his own fears for her, but the other part was motivated by Natasha who wouldn't hear of doing anything else. By the time they made it back, Pyrite was still in chaos, but the initial wave of undead had calmed down enough to where they could at least check her apartment. She was gone. Her place had been ransacked, but it looked like she had taken her other Pokemon and some supplies and had left.

    Natasha was devastated, and while Venga was upset, this only motivated his mission even further. If she was alive, he hoped he would find her after he had finally found and killed his father and make her happy again. If she was dead, he wanted to give her spirit the vengeance it deserved. He ignored the possibility that his father would have been killed by the undead, but it did make him realize he had a time limit. The longer it took, the more likely another force would do the deed.

    As the epidemic went on, he ran into other survivors, and he found a lot of them fairly pleasant. There were a few bad seeds, but Natasha kept him away from them. She tried to keep him away from everyone, but there were times she had to admit being in a group was smarter. But there would always come a time that they left the group because she was getting antsy. He didn't resent her for this, since a lot of them were trying to find places to stay and not wander, but he missed the company. Meeting new people who had to do things to survive also made him start questioning some of his never challenged beliefs on morality, but the struggle was mostly internal. He didn't want Natasha to think he was bailing on their rightful mission.

    He also picked up two more Pokemon as they traveled because he wanted to help them. A strange Pokemon that called herself an Absin had been injured, but once she was feeling better, she insisted on staying with him for his protection. He didn't think too hard on that since the Epidemic was inherently dangerous. He also picked up an Eevee who wanted to stay with them for protection who very quickly evolved into an Umbreon.

    After four years of fruitless searching, Natasha insisted that they go back to Pyrite again. Maybe his mother had gone back and tried settling in. Sybil, Dantes, and Noctis did not believe this, but Venga trusted her. He felt that maybe she needed some closure, and he wasn't going to deny her that. It was a long treck back through the desert, though.
    Accent He sounds like he didn't get a very good education. While he is good at reading, he doesn't necessarily know what some of those words actually sound like.
    Appearance -Lithe though getting scrawny THANKS EPIDEMIC
    -Tall and lanky
    -Black Hair. almost has a bluish tinge. It's long enough that it can get in his eyes and face, but it isn't longer than his chin. It's very messy, and he tends to let it hang in his face since he's used to it.
    -Blue eyes
    -Scar above his right eye
    -black track pants with a white stripe down the side
    -Black hoodie
    -Tennis shoes (very worn)
    -Black neckerchief that he pulls up to his face when going through the dessert. He pulls it down when in town, or otherwise doesn't need it.
    Religion LOL NOPE
    Personality -Between the years of being away from his mother and spending short bursts of time around other people have greatly impacted the black and white morality that his mother tried to instill in him. He struggles with the idea of putting everyone into the two boxes due to realizing that life sometimes only gives one bad and worse options.
    This doesn't apply to his father or himself though. His father should have been put under, and if that's what he came from, then he is obviously just as bad.

    -Very strong self hatred
    Due to his tainted blood, he thinks that he can't really be a good person. His mother told him so.

    -Afraid of himself
    He's terrified that he could hurt someone badly when feeling strong negative emotions, so he tends to stifle them when they arise. Doesn't always work, and he hates himself when it happens.

    It's been 5 years and 4 of them were spent in an apocalypse. He's still looking, dammit.
    This can also be called stubborn. It can be a pain in the ass to argue with him if he thinks he's right.

    Due to his inexperience with people, he is extremely gullible and easily manipulated

    -Empathetic to those who struggle
    Even though it wasn't part of his mission, he can't help but want to help those who are struggling.
    Would probably cry at every disney movie
    Gave some of his food to a Murkrow because it looked hungry

    -Disregard for rules
    The law forsook his mother and let the man get away. He doesn't believe that the law would actually help him. This only got reinforced when the person who attacked him wasn't even caught.

    -Despite his morbid mission, he had never killed anything before being sent off. Killing his first undead was ROUGH

    -Can be very chatty
    Despite constant attempts at coaching him to be quiet, if he gets excited, he will have issues stopping.
    Has enough sense to not talk about the more morbid things

    -Not a good liar
    He was mostly honest with his mother, and it took the gardevoir to realize that he needed to learn how to lie so he didn't scare sources of information off
    He's gotten better with time, but it's more of he's learned how lies of omission work rather than being a master manipulator with words.
    Affiliations -Father- His entire mission in his life is to find the man who spawned him and kill him for his actions.

    -Mother- He adored his mother because as far as he knew, she always took care of him. It would only be right of him to take on her mission to take vengeance on the man who hurt her.

    -Natasha- The Gardevoir honestly hates him just as much as his mother did, but she does her best to hide it. As far as Natasha is concerned, this is her last mission, and she intends to see it through, or until it is completely impossible. She has done her best to keep him away from others so that he would be unable to form different opinions, but she has been unsuccessful in keeping him completely isolated. In his eyes, though, she has been distant, but ultimately caring for him when she could.
    User Notes -His father will be revealed later on, but people who know his father's face well may see the resemblence. I haven't decided if he'll actually find the man, but for now he's trying to survive.
    -He is loosely based on Venga in Two for Joy.
    -Big note, it wasn't mentioned in the history, but Venga's father assaulted his mother.
