MoniStar's First Ever OC

Post by MoniStar on Sat Nov 29, 2014 4:12 am

I figured I would post this, Mostly to test how to make a topic on a forum like this.
For those of you who care, I entered this OC into the "Roleplaying Room's OC Competition" to which it got a 77, ((All OC's 80+ won the competition))

MoniStar’s OC: Elle the Scrafty


Name: Elle (Pronounced ‘L’)
Age: 20 years old
Occupation/Lifestyle: She is a wild Pokémon, but she has spent time with humans in the past after being released by a somewhat elderly trainer. She often spends her time wandering the forest or gardening.
Gender: Female
Weight: 30 kg
Height: 3’07”
Residence/Home: In a small cave on the edge of cliff face; it has a wonderful view of the sunset and sunrise and has a small garden off to the side, with an assortment of berry trees which she has grown on her own. It also possesses a nice, comfortable bed, made from leaves to comfort her from the cold, hard ground of her cave, as well as an additional few beds for any guests she may have. It also contains a big fire-pit in the centre, for cooking up food, warming and preparing medicine (reasoning below), and to keep any little Pokémon or guests warm in the night. She much prefers the cold, but she will put up with the heat for company.

Ability: Shed Skin
Moveset:
-          Rest
-          Sleep Talk
-          Drain Punch
-          Knock Off


Personality:
She is a rather cheery individual at heart; she enjoys spending time with people and loves to take care of her garden. She is also easily flustered and a little lazy. She will often sleep in without the sunrise in the morning to wake her up. When it comes to love and any crushes she may have, she begins to become a shy and hesitant person whenever they are around, finding it difficult to keep her cool around them and struggles to talk in their presence; The exception to this being if they hug her or any other affectionate motion, she’d melt in their arms, unwilling for them to let go and be in a state of utter bliss, which would embarrassingly last a little beyond the hug/sign of affection, embarrassing her greatly when she suddenly snaps out of it. In addition to this, when the need arises for her to battle, she brings up her old Gym Pokémon training and shuts out her old emotions, focusing on the task at hand, should the need arise. However, she was not chosen for a Gym Leader’s team for nothing, and she take the role of bulk, able to take hits and focuses on protecting people rather than attacking (Should the need actually arise =P). This defensive role in battle is reflected in other ways, she is trained in medical techniques, using berries and bandages made from leaves in order to treat the wounds of those who come to her, as she aspires to become a well-known Doctor and treat the injured (Another reason she keeps multiple beds in her cave). She also gets frustrated when people automatically assume she is male, as that is the general assumption with all Scrafty, this causes her to get mad and annoyed at the person until she calms down for a while (This probably caused from being constantly called a male, in addition to the high-strung life of a Gym Leader Pokémon).
She is also fond of berry seeds rather than berries themselves, and as such will usually open berries and collect the seeds from within to eat, and uses some of the seeds she would for her garden, to eat instead (Unless there is a drastic need for more berries), this weird taste in food was brought on by her old trainer, who used to eat sunflower seeds. At night she will sometimes sit on the edge of her cliff, eat some berries and whistle the tune her old trainer uses to whistle to calm her down when she was young, as it helps her remember the one who took care of her, and it has a very soothing effect on her in nearly any situation.

Appearance:
She looks like most other Scrafty, except she has a necklace she earned to show she was, at one point in her life, a Gym Leader’s Pokémon, it’s rather old and the test of time has not done it justice in the form of rust and faded colours. She also carries the item ‘Leftovers’, which was her item she used as a Gym Leader’s Pokémon, and it helps with her doctoring (She keeps that stored in her hood). In addition, she wears her glasses when she is doing her duty as a doctor, treating wounds and such, as her eyesight isn’t perfect.


Pros:
Caring Personality
Trained in Medicinal Techniques
Trained in Herbal Medicines
Ex-Gym Leaders Pokemon, Hence she can both take and deal a hit

Cons:
Easily embarrassed and flustered by “Affairs of the heart”
Heavy sleeper
Nervous Tick when questioned about her Gender
Doesn’t really enjoy conflict

Backstory:
As mentioned above, she spent the majority of her time as a Pokémon chosen to be a part of a Fighting Gym Leader’s Team at the time. The Gym Leader himself was quite old when he acquired Elle, Her mother was part of the Old Fighting Gym Leader’s team, and upon the graduation of Elle’s trainer to Gym Leader, he was given the egg that Contained Elle. When Elle was a Scraggy, she was extraordinarily clumsy, she tripped when she tried to fight or train, and was always hurting herself.  This caused her to be taken care of a lot by her Trainer, and his other Pokémon (Which if you are curious, are a Medicham, a Hawlucha and a Hariyama).

Eventually her Trainer decided that if she couldn’t punch, she should try and take the punches, which of course scared her at first and she would always whimper and cry, running back to her trainer. Eventually after she evolved, she grew more confident and was officially able to start work. It was of course a rocky start, but she eventually got used to it, rightfully earning her spot among her ‘family’. Eventually the trainer grew old, and he wasn’t quite as good as he once was, eventually he decided to retire and passed on the Gym to the next in line, choosing to live out his life with his 4 Pokémon in a small little hut with a wonderful view of the nearby town in which the Fighting Gym was located.

Eventually, the Trainer decided to let his Pokémon go, so that they may not see him die and be restricted by the pokeballs he kept them in, this of course tore all of them on the inside, especially Elle who had only ever known life with the 3 Pokémon and the trainer. She eventually reverted back to her old cowardly and clumsy self, being taken care of by the 3 Pokémon as they left their Trainer, who they all considered their father. Eventually she got a rather stern talking to by the Hariyama (who was the most brash of the group), who snapped her out of her old habits and back to the way she was, eventually leaving the group to pursue her dreams of becoming a doctor.
She left the island and boarded a ferry, by Hiding in a barrel, to a new land (The Freeroam Forest =P).

Upon her arrival, she wandered the forest aimlessly, trying to find a place to stay for the night, during this time she tried many different places: under trees, in trees, by lakes, and all sorts. After a week had past a terrible storm was cast upon the Forest, causing her to frantically take shelter in a nearby cave, where the storm lasted for 3 days. After spending time alone, she began to feel homesick and regret leaving the other Pokémon, however, cutting this thought off, she found a wounded Emolga in the middle of the night, who had wound up getting injured on their first attempt to fly, Elle quickly rushed her off to the first cave she could find in the darkness and cared for the little one, making little makeshift bandages for her wounds, using berry juice to stick them on.

Eventually, after working through the night she saw the sunrise and was entranced, it was a beautiful sight, reminding her of the view of the town her Trainer’s Hut had. It was at this moment she decided this was to be her new house (Which is the cave I mentioned above in the Residence/Home section). The Emolga eventually woke up and was amazed at the view herself, and stayed in Elle’s care for a week until she felt better, where Elle learnt the Little Emolga’s name ‘Sarah’. One day, they heard the Emolga’s Mother calling out to her, upon discovering it was Sarah’s Mother, Elle brought Sarah to her mother, bringing about a tear-jerking reunion. After this the Little Emolga left Elle’s care and made her a little “Doll” of Elle out of sticks and leaves, which Elle keeps on a little shelf she made of rocks and driftwood. After waking up to the amazing Sunrise every morning, she decided to call her home/”hospital” the “Sarah Sunbeam”, named after the little Emolga, her first Friend and Patient in her new life.
This experience confirmed for Elle that this was where she wanted to be, and that she would stay on the island and grow a little garden to help with both food, and medical supplies.

Very detailed.
My only concern would be letting out all of the detail that you've put here into an RP.

No, not spamming detail.
Expressing it (meaning putting that back-story into the character and making it known) that will be the hard part.

Well, I don't need to worry about that, on the count that no one ever RP's with her =P

No one ever needs a doctor, she can't leave her home for more then a few minutes. These both make her quite boring to RP with, as you're forced to just sit there.
