    @Renewal: I decided to finally come back to Bulbagarden after a while and I find this awesomeness? A great return, indeed.
    -----------------------------------
    Name: Winter Villiers
    Age: 19
    Gender: Female

    Appearance: Winter is a young, fit woman of 19 years-old. Despite her somewhat young age, her body is well-matured and toned from the training she does with her Pokemon. She has oceanic blue eyes, short blonde her reaching the base of her neck, and a stature of 5'7". When participating in the Noctis League; she can be found wearing a black jacket with a fur-lined hood, with a black tanktop underneath; complete with blue ripped jeans and black boots. During casual times, she usually wears a tanktop or shirt with bike shorts as her trademark.

    Personality: Winter is shown to be a calm but serious battler, though she is not without a sense of humor; albeit very dry, sarcastic, and sometimes downright cruel. She is shown to have a short temper toward those who don't follow rules. Because of her battles in the Noctis League, she has shown an extensive killing intent when in battle seriously. Despite all of these traits, she does show childish traits; as she tends to believe that everyone is innocent deep within. Her naivety leads to her usually being taken advantage of. She is also very distrusting to those she first meets due to her childhood.

    History: Born to two parents, Winter was not taken care of properly. Her father was a criminal, performing misdeeds of all varieties. Her mother, a high-ranking diplomat; left Winter with her father around the age of 9. Winter had never known what possessed her mother to do it, but only knew that it had to do with her boss. She wouldn't find out the meaning of the word "infidelity" until she was older in life. Over the course of 2 years, Winter had been subjected to harsh training with the Pokemon her father had stolen for her. When she did not perform to the day's standard she would be subjected to many types of punishment; including whip lashings, beatings, and emotional abuse. This soon escalated to forced self-mutilation and even molestation on some occasions. Along with her Pokemon, Winter was forced to become battle-hardened. After leaving her house in the night, she burned it down along with her father inside. Never since had she went back. After moving to Knyte City, she went and became a Wandering Trainer for the following 8 years; battling with her Pokemon endlessly. After witnessing the horrors of the Noctis League's darkest parts, she decided to become a Noctis League Scouter; reporting to the highest bidders and officials on who to bet on and how to win in battle against them.

    Occupation: Noctis League Scouter

    Goals: To find her mother is her primary goal. Scouting the Noctis League is her favorite hobby.

    Pokemon: Lucario | Volcarona | Nidoking | Metang | Shelgon | Aggron | Braviary | Milotic | Absol | Excadrill | Zebstrika

    Other: She is currently looking for her 12th and final Pokemon, which she wants to be a Legendary Pokemon.

    Default Re: Pokemon: The Tournament of the Abyss [SIGN-UPS ALWAYS OPEN]

    Name: Lavitz Van Kleef (better known by his stage name: Sin. His friends and pokemon calls him Cliff.)

    Age: 18

    Gender: Male

    Appearance: Cliff has black hair with red highlights. His left eye is red, and his right eye is brown. The upper layer of his hair points upward while the lower layer points down. Cliff is a tall teen with three scars straight over his eye that lead down to his right cheek. He also has the word "FREEDOM" tattooed on his left shoulder and "TO WIN OR DIE" Tattooed on his right shoulder, as well as a red belt buckle worn diagonally. He wears a black choker around his throat and matching armbands on both upper arms. Cliff wears a sleeveless black shirt, and slightly tattered jeans. his jeans have two belts that cross each other. Hanging on one of the belts is a holster for his Pokeballs. Cliff never reveals the meaning of his tattoos, and how did he get the scars on his face. In battle, Cliff wears a wing-like mantle, and a steel mask with a single gold coin over his left eye (in the Greek tradition of placing coins over the eyes of the dead, indicating that he is "half-dead")

    Personality: Cliff is a complex person who was molded by his past as a member of a criminal syndicate called 'Team Galactic'. He's calm, collected, and a cold. He tend to avoid battle when its not necessary, but does not hesitate to fight when needed. Despite this, he is a kind person under his cold exterior, especially to children(he also has a soft spot for blonde girls, because its the hair color of his adoptive sister's hair.) since he was an orphan.
    he appears as a lonely and detached individual, living alone and refusing help from anybody. he is also a deep thinker contemplating about his life in many instances. he seems always serene and apathetic towards other people, even when he is actually deeply conflicted. He is also extremely calm, even in battle, and is very seldom surprised by even the most drastic of actions. However, when he was younger, he was quick to anger and very hotheaded. Cliff likes Japanese cherry blossoms, night-time walks, spicy food, and apple, but he does not like sweets.
    Beneath his brooding demeanor, Cliff is shown have a comedic side, as he once jokingly remarks that he uses Air Cutter to cut his hair.

    History: Cliff came to Knyte City to start a new life. He was raised in an orphanage.
    When he was 14 years old, a woman and a man adopted his sister, this, leaving him behind in the orphanage.
    Frustrated, Cliff ran to the place where he could relax: the beach, in the middle of the night.
    A man named Johnny, found him, and take him in as his son. It turns out that Johnny is an admin of a criminal syndicate called 'Team Galactic'
    He trained his adoptive son, in the arts of fighting, stealing, etc, making Cliff joins the Galactic as a member.
    Tired and feeling guilty, a few years later, Cliff ran away, into a city called Knyte, hoping to start a new life.

    Occupation: Librarian. He opens a small bookstore that sells books, card games, etc.

    Goal: to join the international police, so he could put an end to team Galactic, hoping everyone would forgive his past sins and mistakes. But first, he must be strong, and challenging defeating the noctic league is a must to him.

    Pokemon: Crobat (named Dismas), Luxray (named Chazz), Houndoom (named Rave), and Floatzel (Freed)

    Other: he's particularly good at pick pocketing.

    Default Re: Pokemon: The Tournament of the Abyss [SIGN-UPS ALWAYS OPEN]

    @Renewal: Aaaand, here's my second sign-up. This one is a Gym Leader.
    ------------------------------------------
    Name: Yun Deloria
    Age: 22
    Gender: Male

    Appearance: Yun is a tough, young man with fairly bronze skin, wavy dark brown hair; the back of his hair tied into a braid and piercing green eyes. He is of fairly tall height, being around 6'01". He is somewhat muscular, having trained fervently with his Pokemon all of his life. When in the Noctis League, he wears a royal blue traditional indian sari; adorned with tribal accessories as well. Underneath the Sari is a black tanktop and black pants. He wears black boots, each sporting tribal markings on them. Across his arms are tattoos in Arabian for "DEATH" and "BATTLE".

    Personality: Yun is a very straightforward person, being blunt and truthful to the point of cruelty and rudeness. He is never afraid to speak his mind, being brutally honest and effective when he does. He is a very complicated individual to understand, as one would need to be able to fathom his ever-changing agenda. Being an avid reader, he spends his times reading in Cliff's Library. When not, he is usually found within the Battlia Gym; training his team of Pokemon. Yun, despite all of this, also shows a very kind and compassionate side to those who are weak; wanting to mentor those in need. Some find his advice to be downright abusive, but usually understand when it helps them in the long run.

    History: Yun was born in the mountains of the Hoenn Region, born to a large family of 10; with 8 siblings, a single parent, and an uncle. His father had disappeared under mysterious, leading his mother and uncle to fend Yun and his 8 siblings. During his life, Yun and his siblings all competed fervently for the approval of their mother. In these competitions they all scaled the mountains to collect food, distured nests of dangerous Pokemon to capture and bring them to her, and even jumped into volcanoes to collect minerals. Within time, Yun's sibling's extreme measures to gain attention resulted in their demises. With only Yun left, his mother had begun to take care of him. Yun's mother and uncle had remarried to become better parents for him, also giving Yun a Torchic as a present. One night, after farming; Yun came back to his settlement only to notice his mother's voice was echoing in the quiet. When he went to investigate, he found her being raped by his uncle. Enraged, Yun and his Combusken at the time both captured and tortured the man. Yun's mother never recovered from the trauma of the event, eventually jumping from the mountainside to her death. Yun forced his uncle, who had been held captive, to jump from the same cliff; before burning down their settlement. Taking four of the baby Pokemon with him, he released the others and left to travel on his own. Coming to Knyte City, he spent over 10 years training; essentially becoming one of the more powerful Trainers. With his name known, he decided to take on the Battalia Gym. Completely decimating the Gym Leader's team, he was given the title by the man. Yun has since trained with his Pokemon.

    Occupation: Battalia Gym Leader.
    Goals: To find someone suitable to run the gym. To become the Champion of Knyte City.

    Pokemon: Blaziken | Conkeldurr | Metagross | Tyranitar | Aerodactyl | Bouffalant | Escavalier | Beartic | Garchomp | Eelektross | Dusknoir | Haxorus

    @Oerba Yun Jay: Looks good, though you'll need to edit the history a bit. The Noctis League is completely separate from the Pokemon League; it has no authority over the Gyms. Otherwise, approved.

    Name: Rue Sable

    Age: 28

    Gender: Female

    Appearance: Rue is an imposing woman, standing at nearly six feet tall, with sharp, striking features. She has sleek, dark hair that reaches midway down her back and intense dark green eyes. A thin white scar stretches across her left palm, a reminder of the very first time her life was endangered by a Pokemon. While battling at the Noctis League, she wears the standard light body armor, painted white with a black spade motif (like a playing card). Her mask is completely smooth and white, revealing nothing of her face; the material over the eyes is thinner, allowing her to see clearly without letting her opponents see her. When she is not at the league, she dresses stylishly but professionally, preferring slacks, blouses and heels in neutral colors.

    Personality: Rue has a forceful, ruthless personality, but is rarely needlessly cruel unless she really doesn't like you. She has a fairly short temper and often acts violently when she flies off the handle. Rue has trouble relating to other people and usually ends up alienating them, whether that was her original intention or not. Gradually, she has begun distancing herself from everyone, even the people she cares about.

    History: Rue was the second child of a rather wealthy (and quite indifferent) family, her father having made a fortune with his mining company, digging up rare materials and selling and reviving Pokemon fossils at steep prices. Her father fully intended to pass the company onto Rue's older brother, Gray, and to marry off Rue whenever a profitable enough man came along. Rue, however, had different plans from a young age.
    Rue and Gray were often each other's only companions during their childhood and became quite close. Rue worried that her sickly, mild-mannered brother would be an easy target as the head of a large corporation and eventually revealed her desire to one day be head of their father's compnay to Gray. Gray was easily overtaken by his sister's domineering personality, and he readily agreed to give his share to her. The two confronted their father, informing him that it would be Rue, not Gray, who took over the mining corporation, and that Rue did not intend to marry. Their father was predictably furious at his children's disobedience, but he quickly came up with a scheme that he thought would guarantee that he got what he wanted.
    He challenged Rue to a Pokemon battle, promising that if she could defeat him, she could take over the company. Rue accepted and sent her Togetic out against his Kabutops. Togetic was taken down almost instantly, and Kabutops conintued on to attack Rue herself, inflicting a deep cut across the hand she threw up to sheild herself. Just in time, Rue called out a Pokemon that she had revived from a fossil without her father's knowledge: Lileep. Somehow, possibly sensing her trainer's desperation, Lileep managed to defeat Kabutops, leaving Rue the victor.
    Rue eventually did take over operation of the mining company and moved to Knyte City on a whim; a few years after settling there, she received her first invitation to the Noctis League. Her ruthless battling style and the playing card motif of her armor has earned her the nickname “The Queen of Spades” in the underground battling circuit.

    Occupation: Businesswoman/CEO

    Goals: To prove to the business world that a young woman can be just as effective as the head of a major company as any man. And she would be lying if she said that kicking around some uppity trainers wasn't way more fun than business dinners. Also, to reconnect with Gray, as the once inseperable siblings have grown distant in recent years.

    Pokemon: Kabutops (formerly her father's, the very same one that scarred her hand); Cradily (the Lileep that won her the company); Togekiss (the Togetic that she battled Kabutops with); Lampent; Galvantula; Aggron; Froslass; Servine (a gift from Gray when she moved to Knyte City)

    Other: None
