Re: The Pokemon Highschool [SU][Temp SU closing]
Name: Lucas Serenes
Height and Weight: 5' 9" and nearly 110 lbs.
Appearance: Lucas has brown hair that goes down about an inch long and sky blue eyes. For clothes Lucas usually wears a white t-shirt and long white khaki pants but will sometimes wear a different color shirt or a black jacket, he also wears white socks with a black strip near the top and black shoes. For accessories Lucas wears a pendent with a photo of him and Riolu in it and a pair of wristbands, a red one with the sewing of a Great Ball on his left wrist and a blue one with a regular Pokeball on his right wrist.
History: Born in Floaroma Town, Lucas lived his childhood with an incredibly unusual ambition, he didn't wanna be a Pokemon Trainer. At first he only saw trainers as people who only used Pokemon as war machines to fulfill their hopes of becoming rich or famous with no thoughts how some of the pokemon might feel, of course his parents were Pokemon Trainers but that only made Lucas ashamed of them.
Throughtout his childhood, Lucas had to deal with other kids making fun of him because of his opinion, as well as his parents trying to persuade him to think otherwise even though he lived his life trying to help injured pokemon around the city via the first aid his parents had been teaching him over the years, which to him was a far more fulfilling lifestyle then becoming a trainer, also whenever he asked his parents why they want him to be a trainer so bad, they would give him the same confusing answer, "You have the same flame in your eyes as your father."
When he became eight years old, Lucas went outside to think about that answer his parents had been giving him for the past few years, until he wandered around the forest and found an unconscious Riolu with a red scarf. Unable to treat it's wounds himself, Lucas for the first time ever took the injured Pokemon home to see if his parents could help it, and to his surprise both of his parents agreed to help Riolu without a second thought, this was a huge surprise to Lucas because of his view on Pokemon Trainers, which his parents were during their childhood, it made him start to think that not all trainers acted the way he thought they did, that many trainers were selfless people who more often used Pokemon to help others like his parents had told him, the kind of lifestyle that he had wanted.
After a few moments Lucas' father had asked him if he had seen anyone near where he had found the Riolu, after replying that he hadn't, Lucas remembered the red scarf Riolu had which made him worry that it most likely had belonged to someone but was abandoned. Several moments later Lucas was voluntarily watching Riolu while his parents left for a few minutes when it woke up, of course afraid of it's unfamiliar surroundings, Lucas was able to keep Riolu under control, telling it there's nothing to worry about and that he brought it home to help heal it's wounds, until his parents returned telling Lucas that Riolu will have to stay with them until it can get used to the area so they can set it free, which made Lucas feel uneasy even though he was glad to find out that he was acually wrong about Pokemon Trainers thanks to his parents selfless actions, but was more worried about Riolu leaving. As days past Lucas started to feel closer to Riolu, however the closer they became the more different Lucas started to feel until one morning he woke up with a weird feeling in his eye, and when he went to the mirror to check his eyes he saw it, though it wasn't really there Lucas felt it was there, the same flame his parents had been telling him about for years.
When Lucas had told his parents about that morning they asked him if he had finally decided to become a Pokemon Trainer, but he told them he would need more time to think about it, however that night they had also asked Lucas if he would like for Riolu to stay with him, both he and Riolu agreed to it, which didn't surprise them at all, they were both happy to see that Lucas had finally found a close friend. That night when Lucas was asleep he suddenly had a dream where he was getting yelled at by someone, the most signifigant part of that dream was near the end when the person yelling at him shouted, "Get away from me, I don't need a Pokemon that won't evolve.", before storming away leaving him behind.
When Lucas told his father about the dream he explained that it could've been a vision of Riolu's past, when Lucas questioned this his father also mention that Riolu could possibly possess the ability to control aura, the life force within every living thing, which it shouldn't be able to do until it evolved, the evolved part of the explaination brought both Lucas and his parents to believe that if Riolu had a trainer, the synopsis of Lucas' dream proves the trainer must've left Riolu behind because it didn't want to evolve, hearing this made Lucas think more about his first thoughts about Pokemon Trainers, however another thought came to mind, how did Lucas have the dream, if someone who controlled aura could pass their memories into someone else then it would most likely have to be someone who can also control aura, asking about the possibility Lucas' mother told him that her side of the family have been users of aura for as long as they can remember, but that truth was kept from him because he showed no signs of having powers, despite the answer he still questioned how Riolu could control aura even though it shouldn't be able to do so until it evolves, but soon set that question aside as he was happy enough with Riolu just being there with him. One night several days later before going to bed Lucas asked Riolu, "If I were to go on a journey, would you come with me?", and Riolu agreed, Lucas had then told his parents of his decision, he would become a pokemon trainer.
A couple years followed, and Lucas had grown confident in his hopes of traveling the world, that was all he wanted, to travel the world with Riolu and make new friends in the process. While at the store he found a blue scarf similar to the red scarf Riolu had when they first met, wanting to thank Riolu for their friendship, Lucas bought it and gave it to him as a gift, and that scarf soon became Riolu's most valued treasure, and soon the day came when the two embarked on their journey.
After a few years traveling various regions and going through certain events, which even included Riolu realising he could even use Lucario's special technique, Aura Sphere, before evolving, Lucas found out about the Pokemon High School in Lilycove, at first he wasn't interested, but when he found out about that one of the electives included studying legendary Pokemon he decided to check it out.
Personality: When meeting new people Lucas starts off a bit nervous because of his childhood of being picked on by other kids, he often has trouble talking with others unless his mind is set on something serious, also he hates being the center of attention in a large crowd. Though gentle and timid, he's also intelligent and somewhat stratigic, and ever since meeting Riolu, Lucas has displayed a high sense of confidence as well as a close bond with his Pokemon which has made him a respected name, and it's that confidence towards friendship as well as his unique abilities that make him a moderate Pokemon Trainer, what's more he tends to think more about his friends then himself and despite being somewhat of a coward is sometimes willing to go so far as to put himself in harms way to protect them, especially Riolu.
Elective Classes: Battle Class and Field Class
Other: Not much to say that hasn't been mentioned already(aura powers and all that), except Lucas has an Ocarina as his main instrument, and has a strong intererest in legendary Pokemon and the ruins connected to them which makes him act out in the presense of either of them (it's kinda like Raine's "Ruin Mode" from Tales of Symphonia, except not as bad).
Other: Lucas' best friend, is able to use Aura Sphere and wears a blue scarf he recieved as a gift from Lucas.
Partner Pokemon: Yes
Other: Wears a cresent Moon-shaped pendant he got from one of Lucas' close friends.
Partner Pokemon: No
Partner Pokemon: No
(Remember me from one of the earlier High School RPs SAP? I had some scrap with these kind of RPs due to an issue with that one but might as well try again, the whole communication thing isn't too much of a big deal really.)
(Also, since I'm certain someones probably gonna say something about this. Yes, I know it's long.)
