Character Name: Calvin O'Brien
Appearance: He has fair skin, golden-brown spiky hair, blue eyes, and a round face. He has yet to lose his baby fat. He wears a blue hat with gray Pokeball symbol, blue sleeveless 6 pocket vest, gray long sleeve undershirt, blue gloves with gray fingers, blue cargo jeans, blue and gray backpack, and blue shoes with gray trim. Stands at 6'6" with an average build. His right leg is two inches longer than his left, so he will either lean to his left side, or stand straight and balance on his right leg. He also wears a size 15 shoe, and coincidentally, his shoe size goes up every year, as does his height by 6 inches.
History: Calvin is the third of three kids in an African-American family. His brother, Terry, is the eldest, and his sister, Kalie, is the middle child, He spent most of his life in Twinleaf Town. He was a child prodigy. He learned to read at two, and when he was three, he read a college dictionary cover-to-cover in two days. While growing up, he had one friend who didn't ignore him in favor of his siblings, his next-door neighbor Jasmine. She was the only person who paid attention to his efforts. When he was five, Calvin had a bad run-in with an Oddish his brother brought home. Simply put, Oddish didn't like Calvin, and Calvin had to be rushed to the Pokemon Center due to Toxic poisoning. This resulted an a fear and hatred of all poison-types. He was taught everything he knows by his parents, and yet, he was neglected compared to his successful older brother and sister. Whenever he did something major, his siblings would immediately do something better, causing them to forget about him, and congratulate them. At one point, Calvin, Terry, and Kalie had individual tournaments. His mom went to Kalie's, and his dad went to Terry's. At one point, his parents even forgot his birthday, though they said it was accidental. This resulted in Calvin thinking that his parents didn't care about him. Living in his older siblings' shadows resulted in his inferiority complex, and is the reason why he never made any friends. He was always just 'the baby brother'. He was invited to Trebloome Academy, and accepted to make his own name for himself.
While training at home and evolving a Pichu he caught, Terry and Kalie had evolved their Monferno and Grotle into Infernape and Torterra, respectively. Hearing this, he was determined to train harder. He evolved his Starly into Staravia only for his celebration to be nulled before it could begin by Terry and Kalie catching a Bagon and Dratini, respectively. This went on for a couple more years, Calvin getting to the edge of the shadow, only for the shadow to expand over him.
Finally having had enough of his siblings overshadowing him, he went on a journey around Sinnoh, and found a egg, which evolved into Riolu. Then, as soon as he went home, his brother announced that he had just managed to find and catch a Larvitar. He left without a word, figuring his family wouldn't even notice. He vowed that he would one day not only emerge from his siblings' shadow, but trap them both under a shadow of his own.
Calvin shunned his connection to his family. However, he kept contact with his only friend, Jasmine. His only dream aside from becoming the best in his family, is to finally be fully recognized by his parents.
After his first year at Trebloome, Calvin went back home, having improved in every way. There, he met his twin sister Camille for the first time. Calvin was enraged that he didn't find out about her until now. Camille knew everything about him, and knowing him as 'the pathetic baby brother', thought quite low of him. To prove his strength, he challenged Terry to a 3-on-3 battle. Terry was reluctant at first, saying that he wouldn't waste his time on Calvin. However, once Calvin taunted him, showing the change in his demeanor, Terry quickly accepted, promising to beat this new Calvin into the ground in front of everyone.
The first part of the battle seemed even. Calvin's Staravia had Terry's Machoke on the ropes, but Machoke was landing heavy hits. Staravia eventually evolved into Staraptor, and defeated Machoke quickly. After that, Terry dominated. His Salamence beat Staraptor, Riolu, and eventually Pikachu. Of course, Terry still heavily insulted Calvin, but he won the respect of Camille. After some training, they both ended up getting invited to Trebloome.
During his holiday break, Calvin devoted his time to soul-searching and training. He began asking himself questions, and seeking the answers. He eventually found that because of his family conflict, he was attempting to force himself to become what he wasn't destined to be. This, of course, led to the question of 'What am I destined to be?' He knew, of course, that this answer would most likely take the rest of his life to discover, so he decided to follow the path of his own zen, and let life lead him. He also developed a new mindset befitting his new self. However, his new objective was a mere thorn on the delicate rose that was his life.
Not long after returning home, he was rudely challenged by Terry, who claimed, that he wanted to see how much weaker Calvin had gotten. Calvin calmly declined, claiming that 'The wind does not blow in that direction.' Thoroughly confused at Calvin's demeanor and response, Terry tried a different approach, which involved insulting Calvin's pride. Calvin calmly told Terry that if he was looking to have his pride beaten off and handed to him gift-wrapped, he needed only ask.
The battle that ensued after that was not pretty. Fueled by rage, Terry dominated the first half of the battle, defeating Calvin's Kirlia, Eevee, and Snivy with his new Absol. However, Calvin soon noticed subtle mistakes that Terry was making in his rage, and his Riolu defeated Absol by exploiting Terry's screw-ups. After that, Riolu drew with Terry's Excadrill, then Staraptor went on to beat Terry's Machoke again, only to have a hard time against Salamence. However, Calvin had improved his tactics, and called a U-Turn, switching in Pikachu, who was more than happy to use Salamence as a discharge port. Now the score was more or less even, and Terry couldn't have been more pissed. Everyone else was surprised a Calvin's turnaround, and were beginning to cheer for him. Seeing this, Terry went all out, his Magnezone to defeat Staraptor, though Pikachu was able to hold out on Magnezone and take it out, only to be brutally beaten by Terry's Stunfisk.
After the battle, Calvin was brutally taunted, only to reveal that he knew he wouldn't win anyway, but he knew it would be close. He was met with more insults, and eventually looked like he was about to break down and viciously attack Terry, only to calm down and calmly, yet darkly, threaten Terry in a way that made the color drain from everyone's faces. He was left alone for a good while afterwards, and realized that his own dark consciousness was manifesting fully, and was becoming another part of him.
Personality: Calvin has an IQ of 150, is an expert with technology and Pokemon, and doesn't tend talk a lot, but as long as he's not doing work, he'll gladly talk most people. He has a habit of zoning out, and talking to himself out loud without realizing it. His Aspergers has gotten better, and he is more socially active. Calvin is overall calmer, yet when provoked, he will become sarcastic, and violent, often making threats that would scar most people for life at the mere thought. This most usually happens when he defending Camille, as he's become quite protective of her. When he's calm, he generally speaks in riddles, and is quite down to earth about most things.
Theme Song: N/A, may add one later.
Other: Calvin also has tactile dysfunction, which makes his sense of touch tuned to the highest. This means that something smooth will feel like red sandpaper to him, so he refrains from touching most things. It has gotten better, so he can write or grip things for longer periods of time. His light-headedness has gotten better as well, and he is overall a bit more durable. He carries around a college dictionary wherever he goes, and reads it when he's bored.
