Not native to the Kalos region, Evangeline begged to travel last year, and was given permission by her parents…with some stipulations. It took some time for her to pick where she was going, finally picking the place as far from her home region as possible, and helping with the arrangements. She left home with her great-aunt, Aya, for a chance at a trainer-journey away from watchful eyes and expectations that she didn’t know if she could live up to.

She has learned French, though her skills leave her a little rusty and preferring not to speak at all unless she absolutely has to. She also has an Antidote kit that she is capable of using, not a normal skill for most trainers to have. Similarly, she has the ability to understand what Pokemon are saying, though at least that’s something that one in five trainers are capable of, so it stands out less. Perhaps to balance it out, she has a phobia of Bug-Types.


I feel like if I update this profile much more, I’ll give everything away, and I want at least some things to be a surprise. Figuring out what I was going to do for the main character of the game was tricky. I knew I didn’t want to just do the character X provides you with, since the backstory and legacy of her history that they provided doesn’t fit with anything else in the game (or if there is Rhyhorn racing, I haven’t gotten to it yet! Just riding the one around to get to the caves). Hopefully as more is revealed, you all will like her. It’s hard to take the hero-protagonist that is a silent lead in any game and make them real and relatable…

I’m going to come up with some sort of display thing showing her Pokemon within the text of the story, not sure what. I’ll update this with her starter once it gets started, but the rest of the team will be found in the actual story. Other info that is kept blank will probably be kept that way on purpose to avoid spoilers for anyone who reads the characters first and then the story.
