Name: Chris Vander
Personality: Chris is very rash and hot-blooded, and can sometimes seem like a jerk. He rarely registers peoples feelings, often pushing them aside. Despite this, he is a very good friend. Despite his being overweight, he is surprisingly athletic and fast, but often gets tired easily. Chris is extremely eager for the start of his journey, loving pokemon of all shapes and sizes.
Appearance: Chris stands tall at 6'0", with a slightly large gut. He wears long blue jeans and black shirts, often with a Windbreaker jacket alongside it. His long black hair covers his green eyes and his fairly sharp nose. His shoes are very worn down, and his pants have several cuts. His left arm is slightly burned from and accident from when he was seven, but it is hard to see with his jacket over it.
History: Born in Nuvema Town, Chris was always raised to love battling. Despite being in a family of prodigies, Chris never really got to show what he could do. His first pokemon, a woobat, flew away from him when he was only seven; said accident put him near depression. Every other pokemon he got the chance to command never listened to him, and there were rumors going around that pokemon were afraid of him.
On the day he was supposed to start his journey, he was denied a pokemon by the old professor of the town, Professor Teslam. Chris was devastated, and was forced to assist his brother in his contest preparations. When Professor Juniper came to town, Chris is finally able to receive a pokemon.
Pokemon: None yet, but Starter will be Oshawott
