History: Kami and Ren were created to hunt down legendary pokemon so that the Olympus Company could use them as weapons. Between the ages of 6 and 9, they were taught to read, write, and to obey orders by the scientists of Lavender lab. When they were 10, they were moved to a room with multiple cells,and put into seperate ones that were next to each other.
The cells were little more than cages for pokemon, and like pokemon is how the subjects were treated.
Every day following that one, they were dosed with Cat Blood, and their dreams were haunted by their bonded pokemon.
Being moved to the cages was not all bad, because each of them had cell-mates, who had come from the outside world.
Kami's cell-mate was an older girl called Zena, who had been kidnapped after the drug had been administered to her via vaccine.
Zena's father was a member of Saffron City's Fighting dojo, and he taught her how to defend herself with martial arts.
Ren's cell-mate was a boy about his age named Sam, who had been sold to Olympus by kidnappers when his parents could not pay the ransom money.
Sam was an studious kid who had had an ordinary life, and when he left his home in Celadon to go get his starter pokemon, he was kidnapped by some bounty hunters who had mistaken him for someone else.
Sam loved to talk and told Ren about everything being a trainer was and about the world outside, while Zena taught Kami how to defend herself against what was coming.
At first they didn't believe it, but after seeing Zena come back bruised and bleeding after being taken away, they realised that their small, sheltered lives were part of something deadly.
One day, Kami was taken, and she was brought back with a huge swath of bandages on her left arm, unconcious. Ren was terrified at the thought of Kami, the person whom he cared for most, wounded by some unknown thing, and the fact that he was most likely next to be taken.
Before Kami regained conciousness, Ren was taken to fight. The scientists put shackles on Ren and took him to a large room with a clear ceiling. The scientists left him in the room and went up through an elevator to the upper floor. Ren could see the scientists walking above him as they moved around the clear floor, sitting on various chairs at desks.
Eventually one of the scientists turned on a loudspeaker and said: "Subject KM-1, you will fight a pokemon known as Zangoose. You must kill this pokemon in order to survive."
The scientist pressed a button, and Ren's shackles dropped off, freeing his arms and legs. He then heard a door opening, and a growl of "Zangoose." The bewildered, frightened Ren looked around and saw a white creature with vicious eyes and sharp claws.
Ren remembered the bandages on Kami's arm, and suddenly felt a new emotion welling up inside of him. This was the first time in his ten years that he had felt hatred, hatred at this pokemon he believed had wounded Kami, and hatred at the scientists whom he had trusted when he was younger.
Ren wished for power, the power to destroy his enemies, and to protect Kami.
Then he remembered his dreams, the dreams of the great white dragon who breathed blue fire and could fly.
Ren wanted the white beast's power.
Suddenly he felt strong, but at the same time, awkward.
Ren looked at his arms, which were feathered, and whiter than his skin had been before. Ren then looked up and saw Zangoose charging at him, and he jumped away to avoid its attack and flapped his wings, just as he had seen the pokemon in his dreams do, and flew above Zangoose just as it reached where he had been a moment before.
Ren instinctively knew what to do. He swooped down, picked up the confused Zangoose and then hurled it at the ceiling of the room, surprising the scientists who were monitering him and crushing the Zangoose, which was then finished off by its fall to the ground.
Ren then landed, and would have attempted further attacks on the scientists had he not collapsed from exhaustion. When Ren came to, he was back in his cell, and Sam wasn't there.
Ren looked at the cell containing Kami and Zena, he saw that Kami was awake and sitting up.
Ren asked her "Kami, are you okay? I won the fight and killed the Zangoose."
"That's great, Ren!" replied Kami. "My oppnent was a Sandlash" she continued. Ren was surprised. He thought the Zangoose had clawed Kami's arm. "How did you get cut?" asked Ren, "And how did you win?"
"Well, I got cut because the Sandslash moved faster than I expected it could, and before I could get ready, it had slashed me and knocked me to the ground". Kami paused for a moment, then continued.
"I thought about how much I wanted to live and see the outside world that Zena had told me about, and then I remembered my dreams, the dreams of an armored black beast flying through the dark sky and emanating electricity. I wished for that creature's power".
Ren's eyes widened in surprise. This was very similar to what had happened to him.
"Then I suddenly felt much stronger",Kami continued. "I got up and looked at my hands, which had turned into claws. The Sandslash jumped at me, and I punched it on its belly.
The punch went right through the pokemon, and I let it fall to the ground. I fainted from blood loss, but as I fell to the ground, I felt myself turning back to normal".
Ren took all this in, and was happy that Kami wasn't wounded very seriously and that she could defend herself.
Kami then asked Ren "So how did your fight go? I see that you're unharmed."
Ren told her about his fight, but the reason he gave for his transformation was that he had been enraged at being betrayed by the scientists and that they sent a pokemon to attack him.
Ren decided it would be better if Kami did not know about his newfound desire to kill the scientists and everyone associated with the Olympus Company that they had been taught to serve.
For 5 years this forced battling continued, and more subjects were brought into the room and the cells were filled.
Then one day, when Ren and Kami were 15, the scientists took Sam and another one of the subjects away. When they returned, only Sam was brought back to the room. When Ren asked him what had happened, he replied that he had been forced to use his psychic powers to kill the other human subject.
Ren was not surprised by this, but when he told Kami what had happened, she seemed shocked and disgusted that the scientists had raised the subjects just to have them kill each other.
Yet, this was what was happening, for in one month the subjects had been depleted down to just the four strongest: Zena, Sam, Ren and Kami. None of them wanted to fight each other, but they all knew that only one of them was going to survive.
The scientists came in one day and took Zena and Sam away. Zena tried to fight back, but one scientist just zapped her with something he had in his pocket and she fell to the ground, unconcious. Sam went quietly.
Kami and Ren waited, but no one came back. When the scientists returned, neither Zena nor Sam were with them.
Ren felt the burning rage that he had felt many times before, whenever he was forced to battle. The scientists took Ren and Kami out of their cages, and before they could be shackled, Kami transformed.
The scientists immediately took out their shock guns and shot Kami, but nothing happened to her. Kami swept a clawed hand at the scientists, and they fled out of the room, dropping their shock guns.
One of them was slow enough that when Ren transformed, he managed to pounce on the old man.
Ren growled at the scientist, "Lead us out of here, or I'll kill you".
Then Ren told Kami, "We should collect the weapons the scientists had dropped. Those things might be useful to us."
Kami collected the the stun guns and put them in a sack she made from the rags that the subjects were given to sleep on.
They had the terrified scientist lead them to an elevator that led up into the Olympus building, Ren's claws on the man's throut the entire time. As they went up on the elevator, Ren thought: "We're going to be free, we're going to see the sun, the stars, the world!"
When they got to the ground floor of the Olympus building, the elevator opened, and they saw 5 armed guards with guns pointed at them ready to fire.
One of the guards shouted "Submit now, or die!" Ren snarled back at them, "Let us leave or this man dies!"
He then held up the scientist by the back of his shirt and shook him, causing the old man to whimper.
"Professor!" shouted the gaurd, clearly worried about the old man. "It seems that this man is important to you." said Kami.
"So we'll make a deal with you.
Drop your weapons and don't move until we are far outside, then we'll let the professor go back to you."
The guard paused a moment, then agreed to Kami's terms.
The guards dropped their weapons, Ren picked up the professor, and he and Kami left the building.
The sky shone with the light of the moon as they flew together to the oukskirts of Lavender Town, the professor in Ren's talons whimpering all the way.
As they landed, Ren let the old man go and he ran back into Lavender as fast as he could.
Kami and Ren transformed back to their humanlike forms and dashed into the darkness of Route 8.
