History
history:
Accent ACCENT
Appearance
•White; sickly pale, has prominent dark circles from both sleep deprivation and an erratic sleep schedule
•Messy light brown hair; dark brown eyes
•Has a long, prominent scar running across his left cheek and jaw; without access to proper medical care, it has healed in a way that sadly invites unwanted stares
•Worryingly thin, can barely maintain weight
•Almost always in pain and fatigued due to untreated mental illness and unmet physical needs
•When stressed, he cannot seem to sit still; this includes pacing, messing with his hair, nail biting, et cetera. He has regular stims as well, but they’re distinct from his stress tics
•Most prominent part of his outfit is a dark blue hoodie he uses to make himself look smaller
Religion Has a very shaky faith in Arceus
Personality •His confidence and self-image is a fractured mess, broken by both a traumatic childhood and the horrors of the epidemic. Brandon is intensely self-loathing, to the point he believes he deserves all the horrid things that have happened to him. Things such as compliments or praise bounce off of the boy; he’ll never accept anything good about himself, only listening to those who affirm his own self-hatred. Even his friendship with Micah is colored by these feelings, as Brandon believes they’re inherently better and more deserving of good things than he is.

•Developed avoidance habits in his youth that were never addressed. He cannot stand large crowds or even small groups of people, and struggles with face-to-face conversation. Brandon has to force himself to speak even when he doesn’t want to, fearing backlash should he keep silent; everything he says requires deliberation, and so he tries to plan out every possible conversation to a near obsessive degree to avoid anger and humiliation. This happens with everyone, even Micah (though to a lesser degree with them).

•Has constant anxiety, and never truly relaxes. He’s barely able to sleep due to his nerves; intrusive thoughts plague his mind, usually revolving around all the ways he could die or the pain of his past. He has to know where everyone is, and becomes frightened if he cannot see others’ hands or faces. A lot of his physical symptoms (fatigue, body pain, etc.) are connected to his anxiety

•He has no ability to resist authority figures, mentally or physically, and is easily cowed and intimidated as a result. All one has to do is raise their voice or fist towards him, and he will be compliant out of terror.  Unless Brandon feels his life is in immediate danger, he will not resist abuse, only endure it in the hopes that his tormentor will lose interest.
-(related to above) Goes nonverbal when under intense stress. This can cause his anxiety to spiral further; he will try to get words out, only to panic when his brain won’t allow it. Out of fight/flight/freeze, the third is his instinctive response to danger and overwhelming emotional responses.

•He cannot stand touch, no matter the reason behind it; it makes him either flinch or freeze up entirely. His personal space is very important to him because of this, and if someone gets too close, he’ll immediately become tense. Being grabbed on the shoulder is a trigger for him, as his parents often did this to him when angry; other bad, though not as intense, movements include being hugged or having his hands touched. Anyone who respects his personal space ends up on his good side by default.

•Fairly adept at sneaking due to his childhood. He knows how to make as little noise as possible and to keep himself from being seen, which is the only thing that’s allowed him to survive as long as he has. His fighting skills are nonexistent, and for a long time he had no one to protect him, so Brandon was forced to adapt the only way he knew how. He also used to steal food from his own house when Sunshine wasn’t able to help him, as his parents neglected him often, so food insecurity is not unusual for him

•In his happy moods, rare as they are, Brandon likes to have a content sort of quiet where he can stim freely. He never had a lot of hobbies in his life, so when he’s feeling alright, he spends a lot of time in daydreams. In the past Brandon has taken interest in a few hobbies, but they never really stuck. This is a big part of why he and Micah get along so well; the latter is perfectly comfortable with long stretches of silence. tldr: he’s a maladaptive daydreamer
Affiliations
His only real affiliation is with Micah, who saved his life. They traveled together for some time before finding Veilstone. The closest thing he’s ever had to a human friend, as Brandon has only ever had companionship with Pokemon before them.
