Ethan is an outgoing and all around team player. He is very friendly to everyone. He is quite the socialite, and loves be the center of attention. He is very serious when it comes to his missions though and tries his best to succeed in all his missions. He is trustworthy and honest. He is a terrible liar because if he lies the guilt eats him alive. He likes to be apart of the action when it comes to a mission. So if he is ever put on a side-line mission where he just sits there and watches, he will go crazy. He loves to have fun with his friends and his partner pokemon.
Ethan was born into a family of rangers. His father, Markus, and his mother, Sally, are famous rangers for their big roles in a very important mission rescuing a legendary pokemon, Entei. So Ethan as soon as he was five his father sent him off to a ranger academy. Ethan was a natural at being a ranger so he easily rose to high ranks, but throughout all his resuces he had never found the perfect pokemon partner.
On one mission he was to help stop an avalanche that was going on in a mountain plain. He captured nearby Glaceon, Froslass, and Ambasnow to use their Avalanche against the nature caused one. It was all going great until a rogue Mamoswine attacked Ethan for being in his territory. He had hit Ethan with a Take Down while he had been distracted. Then the Mamoswine used Ancient Power on Ethan which sent him rolling and slamming into a boulder. The Mamoswine was going to finish Ethan off with an Ice Shard when a Bubblebeam struck the Mamoswine which sent it tumbling.
A Piplup ran infront of Ethan in a protective stance. The Mamoswine was enraged it began charging at the Piplup, but the Piplup fired a Whirlpool which knocked out the wild Mamoswine. Ethan and the Piplup bonded right then and there. They became epic partners together. Ethan even nicknamed the Piplup with the name Nate. They became the best of friends soon after. Once they arrived back at their ranger headquarters Ethan was promoted to the Elite rank. He then went on a dozen more missions then he was assigned to explore Nehura.
