(edgy and vampire-ish, i know)
Appearance: Jin stands at 5'11, and has medium length straight black hair. His eyes are kind of silver to light blue (more so silver) colored, and he yields a cold and a striking gaze. Appears fairly athletic looking, but nothing very noticeable; unless close attention is paid or the clothes are of a more revealing nature. Tends to wear mostly black and white, sometimes red and purple, navy blue as well. Jin usually wears a teardrop necklace. Has a noticeable scar on top of his nose. Facial features are quite sharp. Over all, he is not half bad looking but something about him just seems off. Maybe the cold eyes.
Name: Jin Takuya
Region of Birth: Johto
*Where your character lived before coming to the Academy: Unova - Castelia City
History: Born into a middle class family, Spent his childhood in Ecruteak City, but later years at Castelia. His family has been through a lot, and his mother is deceased as of now. This was a big hit for Jin, as he was the closest of the siblings to their mother. Befriended a Gastly when he was quite young. Got bullied heaps in school, especially middle school, not really in the physical way though. Girls thought of him as a creep, dudes as a loser, loner and what not.
Everybody recognized that he was different. His ways of doing, and saying things. He was very intellectual compared to the average kid, and not bad in sports either. Even had a kick-ass Haunter as a companion, which was not something usual in middle school. This created jealousy.
All of these experiences hardened him mentally to a great degree, and taught him how to cope with being an outcast. He became sort of unreachable, and the bullying stopped eventually.
His last year of middle school in summary - got out with A grades, confronted a girl about his feelings but got rejected (friendzoned, but Jin misread the situation and was embarrassed). He cut all connections afterwards, made friends with a boy in his class, and they made a promise to get into a Pokemon Trainer Academy, after graduating middle. Jin applied to Kobukan Academy, as that was one of the most noble Academies. Finally his middle school misery was over, could he now look forward to a brighter future?
(Full, albeit slightly outdated story is in the old CC thread, this is a slightly compressed and quickly written recap)
Personality: Pragmatic; to him the result matters more than how the result is achieved, blunt, serious. Even though he has a weird sense of pride, Jin's sense of humor is mostly about sarcasm, irony and belittling himself. Observant, lazy to some extent since he prefers not to do something if he doesn't have to, if he has to he'll do it as quickly as possible. Possesses impressive perception skills, which means that he can read people and their intentions fairly accurately.
Able to lie or manipulate others at ease, if need be. Although Jin doesn't have much to lie about really. He is drop dead honest most of the time just because that is how he happens to be. Jin is rather introverted but he isn't shy by any means, he won't fear or care what others do or say to/about him generally. Tends to pretend to be oblivious or dense at times for his own reasons, usually if he doesn't want to do something or uses this as excuse that he forgot about something.
Jin's attitude is slightly vain, apathetic. Tends to talk to himself sometimes, and is pessimistic.
Although he is somewhat kind underneath all this, that is very hard to bring out. Quite independent, because of being used to doing things alone. Doesn't let others pity him. Despite all this, he does smile at times. Mostly an uncomfortable, wry or a selfish looking smile, but it's possible for him to smile genuinely.
Likes: Dark, Poison, Steel types. He also shows some liking towards Ghost, Psychic types. Likes video games, watching TV. Enjoys soccer and the outdoors. Eating food is something he fancies too, but he is quite picky about his food. Weather preference wind and/or rain.
Dislikes: Fairy and Bug, Fighting types generally. He shows a disgust in completely superficial and fake people. Being overtly chummy. Small talk. Excessively hot weather. Alcohol and drunk people, smoking. All talk but no action. Pity, naivety. Loud noises.

*Misc: Acts as if he doesn't like to be called by nicknames, but he actually sort of does. He can have a hard time relying on others, because of some bad experiences. Tries not to get too deep into relationships for the most part, because he just thinks if he gets too close he'll just drag others down or just end up hurting himself as the relationship breaks down.
Has some ingrained prejudice/bias against girls, nothing excessive though.
Jin plays soccer to keep his mind off of things, and he is actually really good at it so he sort of enjoys it. Is also pretty good at running and swimming, but those are rather tedious things to do in his opinion. He doesn't have bad social skills necessarily (not that they're good either), it's just that he doesn't like what he deems pointless talk and actions all that much. That paired with being a little awkward, out of ordinary is quite the combo.

Name: - Diana
Region of Birth: Johto (Blackthorn City)
*Current Region and Town/Place (where your character lived before coming to the Academy): Lilycove City.
History: Grew up in a big and a notorious family in Blackthorn City, with a few brothers and many sisters, one of them being Clair. Her days were fairly simple and normal, apart from being home schooled and taught a lot about Dragon-type Pokemon, living with them and what not. She received a Bagon Egg as a birthday gift when she turned 13, although the Bagon was a difficult case at first, Diana managed and they eventually became best friends. After she had learned most she could from the elders, she felt like it was time to move on so she asked for the elders permission to go to another relative who lived by Lilycove City. There she was learning a lot about
Pokemon Coordinateur Contests, Water Racing and what not. She even got to fight against Team Aqua and Magma on a few occasions (low grunts obviously), but as things got more spicy it was time to take a leave. Although Diana wanted to stay and help, it was best if she headed back to home. She felt guilty about not being able to help more, and soon got traveling sick again.
This time she thought it was best to go to a school where they teach everything Pokemon related, and become a master dragon pokemon trainer there. She knew the basics of being a trainer, but lacked the experience. She was more like a one trick pony right now, and to become the best dragon tamer she could, she would have to learn a lot more all around. She had enough of feeling like being left in the shadow of her siblings or just being similar, and wanted to become more of her own self. All the ingredients were there, and she got a referral to Kobukan Academy.
Personality: She is quite fiery, quick-tempered and rather cold on the outside by the way she acts majority of the time. However she does have a shy and a more delicate side to her, that comes out in certain scenarios and occasions. It takes a while to get to know her, as she warms up rather slowly. She is also not that good et expressing her feelings, so she often puts up an act or behaves a bit weirdly. Diana cares greatly for her pokemon and friends, even if she doesn't show it much.
She is pretty prideful but not arrogant necessarily. Is a bad liar, because she doesn't lie often, nor does she like doing so. Is fairly smart when it comes to most things, but can be quite naive or forgetful. When looking for friends she really doesn't care about appearance, status. More so about how well she can get along with them. Somewhat awkward when it comes to relationship things or interacting with boys, not always or excessively though.
Likes: Pokemon Racing, is also highly into Pokemon Battles and secretly admires Coordinators. Swimming, running. She loves Water and Dragon types. The ocean and the sound of waves crashing. Likes wind too. Prefers to be active. Ambitious people. Likes to be helpful (generally speaking), although doesn't admit this.
Dislikes: People who try to pick on the weaker. Those who brag too much. Ice and Fairy types. Not a big fan of thundering, warm weather or snow. Does not like very dark places. Sitting around doing nothing. People with no ambition or plans, goals. Laziness.

*Personal Song/Theme: -
*Misc: Has a habit of falling into her own thoughts. Diana likes to keep herself with a busy schedule, doesn't like loafing around and doesn't want to be mistaken as a good for nothing. Wants to prove herself to be a strong and a capable trainer, somewhat to herself and her Pokemon, but even more so to her relatives.
