Spring has finally surfaced in Regnum, the mass amount of ice and snow slowly beginning to vanish as the flowers take over. Though the rivers still contain some ice and many buildings have fallen to ground due to the earthquake, the colours of spring has managed to make the place seem a tad bit peaceful. Perhaps it's a sign that things will be getting better again soon.

It came so suddenly and without warning throughout the dead of the night: A sudden pulse throughout the city, followed by another and another. By the time people knew what was happening, a large earthquake shook the city, causing buildings to tumble, grounds to crack and shift and, worse of all, the city borders to collapse. Many lives were lost, others injured and lives completely changed forever.

The power plant in Regnum is still down, but some groups have gotten together with electric Pokemon to help restore some of the electricity to the city. It is suggested not to walk the streets alone as the crime rates have sky rocketed despite the efforts of the Enforcement Wing. Phones and internet is still down, but people have started finding other ways to communicate for the time being. In good news, the weather has begun to warm up, the snow and ice finally melting. Sadly, the barrier is still blocking people from leaving the city.

extra notes
  • Has a scar under his cheek from being mugged.
  • Is heavily tanned from extended outdoors activity.
  • Has a variety of functional clothing stored in his PC Item-storage. Can't cross deserts or tundras on sleeveless shirts and shorts.
  • Has recently begun growing rapidly due to puberty.
  • Has a toned build with little fat.
  • Has Hazel irises, though they appear to be a pale yellow at times. Strange.
  • positive traits
    • Confident At his best, Doug comes across as a precocious, independent and self-assured boy, with a good handle of his pokemon and rather serviceable, if not commendable, skills as a trainer. He does not show doubt during pokemon battle, and does not so much as stutter when ordering his pokemon.
    • Independent He may love his mama, but he ain't no mama's boy. He's lived alone for a considerable portion of his short life and has managed just fine, or so he assures. He knows what he wants to do and he knows how he wants to do it.
    • Driven Make no mistake. Once he has chosen a course, come hell or high water, he'll see it through.
    • Unflinching He is one creepy kid when incensed. Swing at him and he won't flinch or even look away. Threaten him and he'll glare at you harder. Intimidation rarely works as intended on him, as he doesn't seem to be afraid of physical injuries. Whether this is due to a lack of acquaintance with them or, on the other side of the coin, too intimate a relationship, is anyone's guess.
    • Meaningful speaker Doug doesn't care for wasting time, and small talk falls neatly into such a category for him. If he's speaking to someone, he either has something he considers important to say, is insulting them, or wants something from them.
    • Detail Oriented Can't help but notice (and more often than not, be severely bothered) those little details most would miss.
    • Curious: Possesses a great scholar curiosity where Bug types and anything pertaining them is concerned, and in general seeks to sate his curiosity when it is tickled.
    negative traits
    • Impatient Got something to say? Be quick about it. Need some help? Only if it can be solved quickly. Want a random, unimportant pokemon battle? Fine, none of that 6v6 though, 2v2 at most. Basically, too much to do, too little time to waste.
    • Disrespectful You don't have enough badges to control him. As an independent youth, he has little patience for authority figures trying to micromanage him, specially when their reasoning for it is his age. He's been trying to work on it, if only because of how problematic the law figures in Regnum can be.
    • Blunt Don't expect much subtlety or sugar coating from him. He's forward to a fault.
    • Selfish Ever heard the saying 'my way or the highway'? Being used to traveling and living alone by now, Doug only takes his own desires and needs into consideration when deciding his next course of action. As he does not regularly seek companions, this isn't usually a problem. If forced to work with people, however...
    • Arrogant He's far too big for his britches. There's confidence, there's arrogance, and then there's whatever the heck Doug is at his worse.
    • Certifiable Pokemon Entomologist: Doug's admiration for bug type Pokemon began when he was a little over 3 years old, and his studies over them began as soon as he could read. He's thoroughly studied on all information regarding Bug type pokemon that has become public, and possesses perfect recall when in need of this information. His throughout knowledge on bug type pokemon got him an immediate place as an Expert within the Pokemon Wing despite his age; quite shocking in retrospective.
    • Biology & Chemistry: Actually spends most of the classes correcting the teacher at 'rich kids high'. His single minded pursuit for knowledge on insect pokemon required he become acquainted with a plethora of chemical and biological terms before he could fully comprehend what he was reading. As a result, though his mathematical and linguistic knowledge was quite lacking upon arrival to Regnum, his knowledge on Biology and chemistry was a bit too advanced for middle or highschool..
    • Eidetic Memory: Not something that he is aware of, as he was never tested in any throughout manner before being forced to study in Regnum. However, whatever information he acquires, he retains.
    • Runner: A true Pokemon trainer has had more than few run ins with something they were most definitely not prepared for, and Doug is no exception! Even when he was short, he was quick on his feet. When it is time to run away, few can match his cowardly tactical retreat! As he's grown recently, he's found himself even faster than before. His build is ideal for getting the heck out of dodge.
    • Reading People: A result of looking like an easy target, he's dealt with more than a few shady figures before, and has even been injured, the large scar on his cheek being a souvenir from one such encounter. He can read people relatively well. In his experience however, the people he can't read are more often than not just as, if not more dangerous than those he can.

    • Pokemon Battling - Experience: At age ten, like many of Kanto's youths, Doug took on the Gym challenge.

      Over the course of three years, he traveled through three different Regions, took on 24 Gym leaders, participated in 3 Pokemon league conferences, and took on Kanto's Elite four challenge.

      Every time, his team was entirely comprised of bug type Pokemon.

      Doug knows his team; he knows them inside and out, understands their strengths and weaknesses, their skills and how they work best. What Doug lacks in versatility (he is unshakable in his insistence to use nothing but bug type pokemon), he makes up for excessive experience in dealing with bug types multiple weaknesses and counters.

    • Camper: Three years without his mom tucking him into bed or any of her home made meals have toughened up this young trooper. He is an adept camper and knows how to cook basic meals well enough.
    • Impatient Lots of things to achieve, not nearly enough time for all of them! Doug doesn't have the time to waste carelessly! He's always in a rush, going from place to place trying to achieve new thing.! Failure is to not be thought about for too long; no time to ponder upon such things.
    • Bug Catcher If it don't have bug in its typing or egg group, it ain't worth his pokeball. Doug uses bug pokemon exclusively, and stubbornly refuses anything else. This puts him at a severe disadvantage against a grand number of opponents a good deal of the time.
    • Over-confident Supremely confident in his ability to kick his opponent's ass. Unfortunately.
    • Bratty Half-pint Prone to disobeying orders just for the sake of doing so, having an incredible distaste for getting ordered around.
    • Like a mule Very unlikely to ever change his mind about anything, unless tricked into thinking he thought about it first.
    • Bug type Pokemon Doug is what is referred as a 'Bug catcher', in most of the regions of the world. He loves all bug type Pokemon, and one of his main goals is to capture all of them, as well as to discover as many new species of bug type Pokemon as he can. A certifiable expert in bug type Pokemon, he can accurately recall all known information on any bug type Pokemon which's discovery and studies have become public knowledge.
    • Spicy Food Doug loves curry and spicy meals in general. He has an iron gut that seemingly vanquishes anything it consumes into a blackhole, and his tongue seems impervious to even the most ridiculous and excessive of spices!
    • Pokemon Battles Hailing from Pokemon Battle Capital of the world, Kanto Region represent! Doug is a Pokemon trainer through and through and is all too willing to challenge anyone for meeting his gaze, looking at him funny, walking in his field of vision, or just breathing loud enough for him to detect them. 2v2 Battles at most, however, he's got stuff to do.
    • Winning Doug likes to win. Who doesn't, really? But he does so especially. Perhaps it is because he is a child, but he really knows how to show his age whenever he loses.
    • Challenges Doug loves challenges! Why? Because they provide him with an opportunity to prove he is the best! His favored challenges are Pokemon battles, naturally, and those related to them, such as the gym challenges common in the regions he has explored.
    • Dissecting: There's no shortage of dead pokemon on Regnum, and quite a few of them can be found in the simulated habitats of the pokemon Wing. It is to be expected, as they are supposed to simulate everyday life in the habitat; death and all. Though Doug loves bug type pokemon, he seems to have little qualms about cutting the dead ones wide open to sate his own curiosity and further enhance his own knowledge and understanding of them. 'Some things you just have to see with your own eyes to truly understand' he said once to a thoroughly disturbed fellow expert while dissecting a Pinsir's corpse on the lab.
    • Haters There's a lot of people out there who look down on Bug type pokemon. These kind of people tend to get bruised kneecaps when around Doug for too long.
    • Vegetables Veggies on the side, please, where he can chuck them to the trash can easily. Doug dislikes his greens, surprisingly enough, and isn't shy about informing people of this. Even if said people happen to be the chef.
    • Wasting Time Doug has too much he wants to do and not nearly enough time to do it. If you aren't gonna get to the point immediately, don't even talk.
    • Birds They are always attacking his smaller bug type pokemon! He doesn't hate all birds, but he is certainly wary of them. Little pecking annoyances.
    • Bossy people After travelling around 3 regions without any supervision at all for 3 years, Doug is less than receptive of people trying to tell him what to do, whether it's for his own good or not.
    Speed Boost
    She seems to always be in a good mood and tends to hug her trainer without prompt or warning when out of her pokeball for too long. Often serves as a pillow and bodyguard for Doug when camping out.
    She is usually shy and happy to stay in the background. Unfortunately for her, Doug is quite awed by a bug that also makes thing catch fire, and is all too often eager to showcase her to whoever is foolish enough to initiate conversation with him, let alone challenge him to battle. She has a temper to behold when incensed.
    She's stubborn, she's (seemingly) sarcastic and she seems to be right when she tries (and inevitably fails) to stop her trainer from doing something. Standing as both a kindred spirit and yet a polar opposite to her teammate Pinsir, she's basically in charge of fixing whatever messes he leaves in his wake. She's been in the Doug's team the longest amongst the current members, next to Pinsir.
    Almost as happy and hyper as Scolipede, he adores being out of his pokeball, and cherishes every second whenever he is chosen as Doug's bodyguard/companion for the day. He has a love for combat, and is always eager to show off.
    Wimp Out
    A bug type Doug ran across on a vessel en route for the island in which Regnum city is found, he is something of a new adition to the team. Having never seen this pokemon before (but having read plenty about him) Doug was super excited to add this calm little fella. He is chillaxed as all heck, seeming to keep his calm head even when the going gets tough around him. That said, it still does wimp out nearly immediately.
    About as hard headed as his trainer, and perhaps even more stubborn. He is Doug's pokemon through and through, always eager to prove himself in combat and always unwilling to take responsibility for whatever he breaks or ruins in his efforts. Next to Scizor, he's been around for the longest amongst the current members of the team, having been captured within Viridian Forest..

    Douglas William Freeman was born in the Kanto Region’s Viridian City, far from the City of Regnum. From a young age, he (and many other young boys) was enticed by the wonderful bug type Pokémon of the Viridian Forest, the swiftness of their growth and their deceiving strength. On these forests Doug would spend most of his days for many years, studying the wondrous (if repetitive) bug type Pokémon of the Kanto Region.

    Until the fateful day he long awaited came. At the young age of ten, as it was tradition for all the young ones of Kanto, Doug was allowed to (legally) capture a Pokémon to call his own, and set out on a completely supervision free adventure on his own.

    Yes. This was actually considered a normal tradition across Kanto. Perhaps some would call it Spartan… but to the strong people of Kanto it was but a venerable tradition to uphold. With a spanking (legal) Pokémon by his side, Douglas William Freeman set out to complete the Indigo League’s Gym challenge, in order to qualify for the grandest tournament of Kanto.

    Needless to say, he managed. Needless to say, it was not easy. Bug types in Kanto (as in, different species, that is) were not as numerous as Doug would have hoped, and he barely managed to fill out his team with 6 different species of bug type Pokémon before he could finally compete on the league. The limitations of the bug types were rather brutally revealed to him during the gym challenge, their numerous weaknesses proving to be far more than simple hurdles for him to overcome.

    Perseverance won out however, and for the first time in his life, Doug participated in a Pokémon League Championship, in what he believed would be the greatest moment of his life.

    A rather short lived greatest moment, sadly. He lost in the preliminaries, before even seeing any of the real action. It was unfortunate, but his severely limited bug type team simply wasn’t enough to overcome the well-rounded, powerful teams of the so-called ‘cool trainers’ that seemed to make up the bulk of the tournament’s participants.

    Doug returned home, to great fanfare… sadly not for him. The city didn’t care much for a lone bug catcher that had lost in the preliminaries, but plenty of the cool trainers that had gotten much farther along in the tournament lived there.

    He never said it, but everything that occurred, from his loss to the ‘superior’ cool trainer, to the generally uncaring reception he received from his very city of origin, deeply affected Doug. It made feel jealousy. It made him feel hunger for recognition. For victory.

    To prove to himself and to the entire world that he hadn’t made the wrong choice. That even as a Bug catcher, he could still win a Pokémon league.

    A month or so later, Doug bought a ticket to Johto with the money he had acquired during his travels, and with his mother’s blessing, set out to compete the Johto region’s gym challenge. He would go on to successfully complete the Johto gym challenge and qualify for the Silver Conference, getting past the screening process and through the first few rounds of the Semi-finals before being ultimately defeated and disqualified. He ended up among the Top 16.

    Displeased with his perceived lack of success, Doug distraughtedly tried to book a flight to Hoenn, In hopes of defeating the region’s gym challenge and qualifying for the Ever-Grande Conference. Unfortunately, he accidentally booked a flight to a different region without realizing it.

    He ended up in a long flight to a region located in the far west. Unova, it was called. Not what he had been trying for, but upon learning it had a league of its own, he couldn’t bring himself to care. Hoenn, Kanto, even friggin’ Orre. It didn’t matter, so long as he won.

    The Vertress conference went better than before, but in the end, Doug found himself defeated just as victory finally seemed within his grasp. By far his most frustrating loss, at the end of the Vertress conference, Doug found himself among the Top 4. Just within arm’s reach of the champion’s trophy… but not good enough for it.

    Distraught and feeling defeated, Doug finally returned home to Kanto, where he was received by his family in silence once again.

    One day, feeling nostalgic, the young bug catcher decided to take a walk down memory’s lane and went into the viridian woods. However, while on his memory trip, he ran across another trainer. He could immediately tell he was looking at something else, and feeling foolhardy, challenged the trainer to battle.

    The battle didn’t reach a conclusion, but the trainer appeared to be impressed with Doug’s performance, having not expected much from a bug catcher wandering the viridian woods.

    The trainer introduced themselves as one of the Elite Four members of the Indigo League, and offered Doug a formal invitation to challenge the Elite 4, seeing how he had already gathered the Kanto gym badges years ago.

    Doug battled the Elite 4. Once again, complete victory escaped his grasp. Just as the coveted title of champion seemed to be within reach, the last member of the Elite four stroke down his last pokemon, stopping Doug in his tracks. Frustration now filled Doug completely.

    He could not seem to win. He could not seem to manage anything he set out to accomplish. Falling into what could only be called a weak depression, Doug spent weeks doing nothing waste time, taking meaningless walks around the Viridian forest and ignoring all other trainers trying to challenge him.

    One day however, something strange happened.

    Doug ran across a strange looking person. Strange mostly because the person was literally disappearing. The sight alone brought pause to Doug, who very confusedly stared at this person, before asking a very simple question. What was happening to them?

    The person very simply told him they were going back home. Where, asked the young bug catcher. To which the person truthfully answered ‘Regnum City’. What’s that, wondered the young bug catcher. The person had disappeared by then, however.

    For the next few days, this short conversation stayed at the forefront of Doug’s mind, filling his every thought. Until one day, the young man gathered everything he could into his bag, got a ship ticket.

    And set out on, his curiosity, now peaked for the first time in months, overpowering his depression.

    Unfortunately, Regnum was something of a disappointment for him. It was certainly a new experience; never had he seen such a backwards and strange society. Not only was there no pokemon league or gym challenge (the backward savages), their laws on children made absolutely no sense to him.

    He couldn't walk on the streets past 10 pm without a guardian? A human guardian? He had traveled through three countries, he had climbed mountains, walked through deserts, through tundras, crossed the sea; and he couldn't walk past 10 pm on the streets? Not to mention Xenophobia was not only a common thing, it was apparently an accepted thing.

    If he admitted he was an 'Outsider', chances were whoever he had been interacting with would be changing their previous tune immediately. Not that he could lie and say he wasn't, his looks, mannerism, accent, brand (or lack thereof) of clothing, everything just screamed he wasn't from around the city.

    Bottom line? His first few days on the city kind of sucked, with nobody wanting to interact with him, and the authorities of the city not taking him seriously at all.

    Still, his stubborn refusal to be ignored eventually managed to get him registered as a Pokemon trainer within the city's governmental Pokemon Wing.

    Expert rank was fine, he could definitely be considered an expert, obviously, but the fact that there were two ranks above it automatically meant that he wasn't satisfied with it. Unfortunately, the wall blocking him off from attaining those ranks had less to do with his skill, more with his age, a barrier he couldn't quite figure out how to bypass.

    Give him 3 more years, 4, tops.

    Unfortunately, his 'become a Knight' project was put on hold when only a couple of months after he arrived to Regnum, a massive Earthquake suddenly rocked the city. Thankfully he had been breaking the law by being outside past 10 pm, otherwise he may have actually died, seeing how the building he had been calling his home was absolutely demolished by the quake and had crushed nearly everyone else that had been living there.

    Go figure.

    With the city nearly completely destroyed and crap hitting the fan with all the gangs, it seemed like a good time to just drop the city entirely and go back to traveling the regions. After all, it wasn't like he could become a champion in Regnum anyways. Unfortunately, there a bit of a problem with his plan. Usually, Regnum citizens where the ones who couldn't go outside of the city's barrier.

    Apparently, neither could outsiders now. He was trapped in a city with no League system and far too many concerns over their youth.

    Goddamn it.

    The pokemon wing was mobilized to help with all the efforts around the city. Doug found himself in limbo, being essentially either a combat unit or an entomologist, but being too young to assist in the efforts to quell the Yamask Saints and The Granbull Gang, and there not being any need for an Entomologist.

    Luckily, since nobody was interested in looking after the outsider kid that can't do anything, it sort of left Doug free to do his own thing. So long as he evaded being noticed.
