Frisco "Fritz" Westmyn: UPDATED!
Pokemon on Hand - Nidorina, Tangela, Mareep, Eevee, Huntail, Vespiquen
Reserves - Five others
The protagonist, titular character, and narrator. Although a new student at the growing Rukh's University, one of many facilities that typically house older newcomers to Pokemon, he already has shown to have a competent level of experience. He said that he's been practicing on and off with them since he was five years old. Currently nineteen as of January.
Fritz is disliked by most of the faculty due to his being from Mexico, the most prominent example being Aiden Kripps - VP of Rukh's. Fortunately, the principal of the University likes and respects him, and refuses to kick him out. He's treated varyingly by his peers. The general rule seems to be the longer they've been at the school, the less they like him, but most seem to show him respect.
Thatcher Li: UPDATED!
Pokemon - Sandshrew, Eevee, Taillow, ???
A student at Rukh's University and friend of Fritz Westmyn. His goal in life is to be a Pokemon Coordinator, though his total lack of charm, charisma, and confidence are major deterants to his dream. Regardless, he certainly has their style of dress down. Besides his clothing with fanciful Pokemon designs, he often wears a black and primarily teal jacket - which he has a habit of recoiling into when frightened. He idolizes Maribel Capdevila, due to how she was able to follow her dream and become a coordinator.
Thatcher and Reika were apparently childhood friends, but the extent of this is unclear at this point. Both also have a history with one Josef Northrop, who appears to have bullied them. Thatcher holds a strong admiration towards Fritz that is only matched by his admiration towards Maribel, a stark contrast to their female friend.
Reika Easton: UPDATED!
Pokemon - Wigglytuff, Eevee, Marill, One Other
A student at Rukh's University. Her meeting with Fritz is incidental, although the two become friends.in short order. A chubby girl (described as Fritz as "not fat or curvy"), her spiteful and impulsively temperamental personality can be a bit of a load to bear at times. Even Fritz is no exception, although she eventually made it clear she truly appreciates his friendship. Reika's birthday is April 16th, and she is presently eighteen.
Fritz recognized her last name, although he didn't say from where specifically. Josef's nickname for her (Freak-Eye) comes from her hazel-colored eyes with a green luster in the light. She broke her right leg after a nasty fall during confrontation against The Beast of Abet. Though she's gotten used to it as of late, it still is a problem when it comes to stairs or long distances.
Cronus Aporon: UPDATED!
Pokemon - Cradily, Gyarados, Skuntank, Three Others
A fourth-year student at Rukh's University (his final year). Described as its "crown jewel" by the staff, he is by far the best battler in the school. Despite being a bit of a jerk at times, he is loved and well-respected by his peers. He normally has a jock-like yet understanding personality, sort of the role model and older-brother-to-all type, but he does have a temper inside him (occasionally a really nasty one). Although his core group of friends stick up for him in less-than-desirable ways, he rarely speaks out against them. By contrast, he is against other wrongdoings.
He often wears a jacket sporting the school's insignia (a stylized bird) and colors (red and silver). Aporon is around 5'7'' and has kempt brown hair, sideburns, and tiny beard.
Pokemon - Poliwrath, Others?
One of Aporon's circle of friends. David is a third-year student and a self-superior preppy type in both dress and personality. Like his partners in crime, he was personally tutored by Cronus Aporon. However, Biology and sticking out don't seem to be his strong suits. Fritz can hardly remember the guy's name.
He does not like to eat processed foods.
Pokemon - Primeape, Others?
One of Aporon's circle of friends. Edgar is also a third-year student. He dresses casually in whit shirts and blue jeans, and is a bit of a fratboy. He is dyslexic, large, and VERY temperamental. Although when push comes to shove, his recklessness usually screws him over. He's very easy to egg on, and as such defends Aporon more than the others.
In-battle, he seems to have a very power-based style, although does balance it out with tricks.
Pokemon - Venusaur, Others?
The last of Aporon's circle of friends. A lecherous nerd who, much like Fritz, was a first-year student transfered to the Tactics class due to his talent. Presently a second-year. He's quite short, has bad acne, and has thick glasses. Ironically, he may or may not be closeted, despite his womanizing nature. He's a very hard person to get a read on.
He seems to be the most disjointed of Aporon's group, but gets along with them quite well.
Pokemon - Hariyama, Others?
Another fourth-year student at Rukh's University. Fritz saw her Hariyama battling an Ursaring when he was transferred to the Tactics class, where it threw its weight around to earn a victory by opponent submission. While a talented battler as a result, her harsh style and nasty attitude has garnered her a negative reputation. Even her sister can't deny it, though doesn't judge her for it. The second-best battler at Rukh's after Aporon, and on his bad side.
Muriel is quite tall, has black hair styled into a bobcut with white streaks, and cold, verdant eyes. She often dresses like a punk or a goth.
Phoebe Palmoni: UPDATED!
Pokemon - Floatzel, Others?
Muriel's sister, and Aporon's second choice for mentorship during the tournament (solely as a slight to his rival). Although their treatment of Fritz is more a receipt for his disrespect, they treat Phoebe even worse and with seemingly geniune contempt.
Phoebe is around 5'1'', has a different dress to, and a much kinder disposition than her sister, but the resemblance is clear enough. Though implied the siblings have a good relationship (at least from Phoebe's end), their similarities end with appearances. Phoebe is kinder and more caring than her sister, but is less tenacious and self-reliant. Not necessarily a pessimist, but if not that, certainly a realist.
Pokemon - ???
A cold-hearted transfer-student and associate of Cronus Aporon, and apparently the best battler of the third-year students (despite not battling much). Nicknamed "The Ice Princess" for both her ruthless nature and choice of Pokemon, she was trained by the late Lorelei of the Kanto Elite Four on the Orange Islands. Some say she has the potential to be as masterful at the Ice type as her mentor. Many students fear her.
She is a cameo character, played by AiedailEclipsed.
Pokemon - ???
A trendy blonde-haired girl with sapphire-hued eyes and shoulder-length bangs, she is an aspiring coordinator. A fan of Augustus Gabriel. While usually passive and polite, she has a short-temper towards some, acting with self-superiority and constant criticism.
Formerly Reika's roommate, by virtue of the room number (168) being her lucky number. After disagreements between them, she put a plot in motion for the theft of an expensive collector's bust in their room. Fritz managed to prove his friend taking it as impossible; Liane left in disappointment with Cinque, and returned spouting a refined rant, indirectly revealing her plan and how it backfired when someone really stole it. Sometime after that, she just got a room change.
Pokemon - ???
A first-year student. Girlfriend of Andrew. Tomboyish in dress and demeanor, but quite quiet otherwise. May not get out in the sun very much.
Irene Faris: UPDATED!
Pokemon - Lapras, ???
A first-year student who is a friend of Carlie and Andew, as well as Liane Weiks. With light blonde hair cut short and aqua blue eyes, she often dresses in revealing attire. Irene is quite nasty towards those she dislikes, but feels a little more normal when not in one of their presence.
Born in the Orange Islands, Irene is the cousin of coordinator Celeste Faris, and holds great respect for Elyna Dragomir. The latter coached her to her defeat Ina (being aided by Fritz) in a battle, brought on by the ditzy girl defending her former friend. Was also part of the group accusing Reika of the theft of the bust, where she repeatedly referred to her as a "fat broad". May stem from Reika believing her mother (on the staff) to be promiscuous, a fact that isn't necessarily untrue.
Pokemon - ???
A first-year student. Boyfriend of Carlie. This ginger dresses in pure white in contrast to Carlie's darker colors. Seems to be more of a follower, and may be slightly fearful of Fritz.
Pokemon - ???
One of Liane's friends; a taller girl with no fashion sense and a grating rural accent. A little slow in the head...
Pokemon - Bellossom (Reedy), Glaceon (Snowy)
A ditzy, enthusiastic, bubbly girl who is generally pleasant to people. A former friend of Reika Easton's, although the details of their falling out - let alone how they could've been friends at any point - are uncertain. Ina doesn't seem to harbor any resentment, but the same can't be said about Reika. Tends to use a lot of cutesy terms and gives similar nicknames to people; also giving the latter to her Pokemon.
She is surprisingly resourceful in battle for a relative beginner. She frequently teaches her Pokemon TMs and knows/understands a few advanced techniques. However, she isn't aware of some intricacies or basic concepts, leading to a few awkward moments.
Pokemon - ???
Teikō's girlfriend. Fritz met both in Sciences early before school reopened; they apparently went home while the school was closed and just made it back in time. Seems to be level-headed.
Pokemon - ???
Teiko's boyfriend. The more excitable of the two. Fritz finds the fact that they're a couple with similar names quite amusing.
Premala Amani Yuhawlah: NEW!
Pokemon - ???
A mysterious girl who is the head of Rukh's Activism Club...and maybe more. A second year student, she is one of the school's most beautiful (if eccentric) individuals - physical and psychological traits both considered. She has some form of mental abilities, of which speaking into the mind appears to be one. Dresses in a two-piece violet robe, has green eyes, and oddly, dyes her hair green as well.
Premala has a romantic interest in Fritz (who she always addresses by Frisco), making absolutely no attempt to conceal it, but he is unsure about her motivations. May have some level of pull at the school, but seems unassociated with the principal or vice principal.
