Name: Zain Tenebris Umbra

Age: 14

Date of Birth: July 21

Appearance: Zain stands at about 5 foot 3 inches tall. He has olive-green eyes, with a mop of shaggy, jet black hair that falls he brushes sideways over his forehead and eyes. His skin is somewhat tanned and Asian in appearance. He wears simple black traveling pants that are tucked into his scuffed, gray combat boots. Zain's casual clothes consist of a hoodie, though when he is on the road (which is most of the time) he wears a frayed, black traveling cloak that falls to the soles of his boots and some plain, tattered black fingerless gloves. In addition to his hoodie and cloak, he wears a belt with a satchel containing a notebook as well as his Pokeballs as well as an old, worn backpack that contains his other essentials and utilities as well as several folders and notes for his studies. His Pokedex is sewn into the back cover of his notebook.

Background: As a child who had grown up in the Hoenn region, Zain was a mute who suffered from PTSD, having watched his parents killed as collateral damage in an attack from Team Rocket. He only escaped from the attack because of a mysterious Pokemon who hauled into an alley to safety. Feeling incredibly empty and questioning humanity as a whole, he sought answers. His ultimate ambition is to become a Pokemon professor and to give back to the creatures who have given so much to humanity. He bonded with the feral pokemon, exhibiting a curious telepathic connection with them as he fought to survive in Slateport city-studying Pokemon all the while. After years of living on the streets, he decided he would rather take his own life than live as an urchin---when suddenly the mysterious Pokemon appeared once more. Having gotten a good look, at it, he realized it was an Absol, a Pokemon that predicted disasters and warned humans about them. He realized the two of them shared some sort of bond, and Absol willingly joined him on his quest. He'd felt a surge of ecstasy at the notion---his own Pokemon companion! His dreams didn't seem so implausible now. Filled with a fresh purpose (and ability to speak), Zain resolved to travel the world along with Absol (now named Lucifer), seeking to uncover the mysteries of the world.

Personality: Zain's instincts are very fine-tuned after years of living on the streets. He is very inquisitive but also uses cold, hard logic when dealing with problems. He is very intelligent but somewhat lacking in confidence. He is, however, very proficient at Pokemon battles and shows a wide perception. He uses a very strategic approach to battles and is constantly researching and jotting things down in his notebook. His curiosity and drive to find and discover more led him to Fizzytopia in the first place. He does have a certain affinity and caring attitude for the Pokemon that he has spent all his life with and is more apt at dealing with them than others of his own kind. As with Lucifer, who he shares a deep and curious bond with, he can be very caring and approachable to them to the point that Spearows and Tailows would rest on his arms as he grew up---he has a certain intuition and can communicate with Pokemon and understand them through hand gestures and an almost telepathic connection he doesn't quite know much about (he hopes to find answers in his travels).
