Edit 11/4/12: Added Tove, slightly modified Luis's hair to better fit how I currently draw it (still need to get around to redrawing his picture)
Edit 5/4/13: Completely redrew everything and added Bandersnatch. (old application - [link])

TRAINER

Name: Luis Chorale (loo-eece kor-al)
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Height: 5'8"
Personality: Upbeat and a bit of a goof, Luis does not seem like someone of the noble land of Ladon. Though he would rather crack a joke than act serious, he holds his father, the one who chose to move to Ladon, in high respect, and puts on a composed look whenever necessary to maintain a good standing in the dragon faction's ranks. Although he thinks dragon pokemon are great, his favorite type is grass, perhaps because it reminds him of his hometown's dense forests, or because he shares a strong bond with his starter, a grass type.
Brief History: Luis's father was an adventurer who explored the whole of Hoenn, at first with no one but his pokemon, and then with a girl he met in Fortree City. They trekked through caves and across oceans before returning to Fortree to settle down. There, Luis was born and raised. Luis's mother was content with living in their home in the trees, but his father yearned to travel again. This time to a land he'd never seen before, and with his then thirteen year old son. This land would be the faction of Ladon in the Saros region. With a select amount of pokemon and a few important possessions and necessities, Luis and his father bid farewell to their family, Fortree, and the Hoenn region.
When they came to the Saros region, they spent a year travelling to the various factions to decide which one to settle down in. They ended up choosing Ladon for its rustic pace of life. They spent some time adjusting, and soon assimilated into the Ladonian lifestyle, one of towering castles and knights of old. Under the guidance of his father, Luis learned sword fighting and sparring. When not training himself, he trained his Grovyle, the only pokemon he brought from Fortree, which soon evolved. A week before his 16th birthday, his father gave him his Kingdra, but with a catch: Luis would have to catch a dragon pokemon before his 16th birthday, otherwise the Kingdra will be returned to his father. Though Luis found quite a few Axews and Dratinis, he wanted to catch a more ferocious dragon worthy of his father's pride. A month before his birthday, while walking around a forest, he was charged by a Salamence. He caught it after a bit of a scuffle, and so was able to keep his Kingdra.
Misc: Luis likes to use made-up words, especially in exclamations. He sometimes writes a bit of poetry, usually whimsical or nonsensical. He is not one to pass up an opportunity to make a good (or bad) joke. He also has a pretty good singing voice.
He owns a broadsword, but doesn't normally carry it around with him.

Misc: Was the first Pokemon Luis caught. Left behind in Fortree with Luis's family, but brought to Ladon when his mother visited to congratulate him on making it into the tournament. Given the jester hat upon arrival. Silly and light-hearted, much like his trainer. Expressive and likes changing color whenever. A bit of a trickster.

Misc: Given to Luis by his mother when she visited before the start of Round 4 to see how her son and husband were faring in the sudden natural disasters. Was Luis's mother's main pokemon and accompanied her on her travels with her husband. Used to be bold until a wild pokemon made to attack Luis's mother, causing him to fly to her defense and get scarred by the wild pokemon's claws. Is now cautious and protective of his trainer.
Speech: Will only talk if he feels the need. To the point.

The inspiration for this character came from the poem "The Jabberwocky" if anyone was wondering. I really like that poem heh.

Man, I have no idea how I missed this in my inbox! I love Luis' design in this, too. I'm a sucker for slicked back hair and earth tones mixed with neutral colours. xP

I really like his pokemon, too. Especially that sceptile!
