Here's my character's sign-up so you all can get a glimpse of what I'm looking for in an application.
Name: Xoxaa Lizarkia
Experience: New Trainer
Hometown: Volcandrok Town
Starter: Dratini (M/Timid)
Personality: Xoxaa is quite the energetic character in an environment she's comfortable in. She can be quite loud and goofy around good friends and she has a bit of a mischievous side too. When it's crunch time, she will rise to the challenge and face it head on. Her brave nature complements her overly dramatic streak, often one to describe something a little too strongly. Her goofy behavior rubs off on others in different ways, but more often it tends to make her look too cute, so others tend to not take her seriously because of it.
Most wouldn't expect it at first glance, but Xoxaa is a very critical person, though she doesn't always express it. She pushes her Pokemon hard to excel, and can be very blunt about others as well, though she is less likely to express it as her honesty has gotten her in trouble in the past. Even her food she is picky about, and although she loves to eat, she loves to eat top quality food only. Her overachieving nature often hides her intelligent side, which is scarcely seen except in a serious discussion or in a heated Pokemon battle.
The least you'd expect out of Xoxaa is for her to be shy, but she's incredibly shy around new people, especially bigger people and people who seem too interested in her too soon. She's also easy to blush, so she's known to do a variety of things under social anxiety such as running away and hiding, or curling up into a ball and hiding her face. She doesn't have much social pizazz as it stands and makes up for it by being obnoxious, which unfortunately backfires a lot.
The girl is also quite modest, which you normally wouldn't expect with her behavior. She doesn't like to brag much and will downplay any praise you give her. This is not to be confused with her confidence, as she's fairly skilled at keeping them both in check.
Appearance: A teenager approaching her prime, Xoxaa is quite the looker, but if you'd ask her, she'd describe herself modestly. Her skin is a light peachy color and is well cared for. Her hair is a rich auburn, often put up in two spiky long ponytails in the back with a few strands left out front covering part of her forehead and her ears. The girl's eyes are a vivid green that complements her hair well. She has a well proportioned face, and a youthful one at that, though she has mostly a cute face. Her body has a pretty decent, healthy build. She's a bit of an athlete, with decently sized leg and arm muscles and little body fat, but she's nothing extraordinary.
Despite her more athletic body, she still has plenty of prominent lady-like features, such as her decently sized bust, hips, and rear. They all go together well with her body, giving her an attractive, young look. She's of about average height, being around 5' 6" and is at a healthy weight. Her clothing style is mostly modest until you get below the belt. She usually wears colorful shirts, sometimes thick sweaters in cold weather that completely cover her torso. However she almost exclusively wears mini skirts, even in cold weather. Though she comes prepared with long, thick socks for such conditions. Her socks are shorter in warmer weather, ending below her knees and are often also very colorful, though they tend to be blue most often. She wears stylish but adventure ready white boots so she can tackle any obstacle in the wilderness. She also wears soft black and green trainer gloves that cover her fingers.
Biography: Xoxaa comes from a long line of dragon-type trainers and breeders that originated from separate family lines from Johto and Unova, but ultimately led to them meeting and settling on Cinnabar Island in Kanto. Xoxaa was born in Volcandrok Town, a town nestled in a valley just under Cinnabar Volcano's shadow in the southern portion of Cinnabar Island in Kanto. She grew up with a mother who was once a renowned dragon-type Pokemon trainer but has become a breeder of these Pokemon instead, the gym leader of the Volcandrok Town gym, and a guardian of the rare dragon Pokemon that reside within the volcano's depths. It is here she learned the basics of Pokemon and became fascinated with the mystical dragon-type.
Xoxaa had a relatively average life, though she had few if any friends and was often harassed by the students at the school she went to. She also had a hard time relating and connecting to Pokemon, often getting hurt in the process. Despite this, she still loved Pokemon and wanted to be a trainer. Being a dragon-type lover in an often divided town, her peers who favored fire-type Pokemon would make her their prime target of abuse, but even the dragon-type fans didn't like her all that much. A lot of this changed when her and her peers became teenagers. Even though people started to give her lots of positive attention, she knew them from when she was young so she knew how superficial they were.
Even in her teens Xoxaa wasn't too good with Pokemon, and though she was bright, her perfectionist nature held her back in school. Regardless, she passed her classes at an average level and was soon to turn 16 and be eligible to train Pokemon. Once her birthday came, she sets out for Cinnabar City to start her journey.
