Extroverted by nature, Isaiah is open and willing to talk with new people. He gains pleasure from interaction with others, often striving to join in on social events whenever he's available to do so. He is naturally charismatic, something brought on partially by his upbringing on how he should behave. In fact, he's very mature and holds himself to be a responsible human being. He even holds that portion to others, believing that one should always take responsibility for their own actions.
However, he's far less stern or serious and more playful. He finds fun in lighthearted teasing or joking around, and an ability to lighten the mood if it gets too dark. That part of him shows in the form of sarcasm as well, rolling his eyes and electing a sarcastic quip to show annoyance towards a situation. He's also the type to get flustered pretty easily, which becomes strikingly obvious when the conversation suddenly hits a brick wall and he becomes stiffer. Embarrassment is clearly something he has difficulty in dealing with, especially when involved in his own pride.
He is, still, calm and well-spoken and his will is powerful with strong opinions. To him, black and white do not exist and those who believe to be good-hearted can do bad things or vice versa. Isaiah is more than capable of making someone run circles in their own mind over moral compasses, and how the morality of a person functions. Similarly, he has excellent problem-solving skills and great decisiveness. He's critical, with a silver tongue allowing his far more crafty side to shine through. He knows, after all, what to say at what time and how to steer a conversation in the direction of his favour.
Unfortunately, workaholism is a problem of his. Staying up far past his need for sleep running on only caffeine and energy supplements, leaving him with bags under his eyes in the morning. He has a habit of biting off more than he can chew, something that mixes in with his own perfectionism. He's very passionate and refuses to take 'excuses' without good reason as to why someone can't perform a task. Laziness is not something in his dictionary, as he himself is quite the opposite of such and others being such turns him off. He's assertive, yet at the same time knows when its the right time to back off of a subject. Still, he does have his inner demons, lacking remorse towards others, and not above allowing arrogance to get the better of himself. Yet he still manages to be an incredibly kind person and will try his best to help another person or be someone another can lean on or look up to.
Isaiah had been born to a typical couple, an only child in the family making him the firstborn son as a result. Due to this, his father was extremely strict on him, forming a 'hard-love' sort of relationship. However, he gained a stronger bond with his mother, who was very kind and nurturing to Isaiah. His favourite things from her were the cookies she made, as she would always shave a fresh batch for him when he was feeling down in the dumps. She would also read him stories of fantastical adventures of pokemon trainers facing fantastical beasts only one could dream of. It gave him fond memories of her, even to this day.
Growing up was simple, however, it eventually took a downward spiral. His father had come home late one night, with Isaiah spending most of the afternoon by himself after coming home from school. He found out his mother had, presumably, died from a car accident. At least that's what he had been told, and being so young at the time Isaiah took nothing sinister from it. He was still distraught, his father picked up on this became gentler on him to play the role of both a father and mother figure in his son's life. He would fill in the gap his mother left after she perished, and grow a stronger bond with his son than he had previously. It was going smoothly, and for the next few years, they concentrated on recovery.
Then, his dad became a nightmare. He began extra lessons outside of basic schooling for his son, ones that helped him excel quicker in class than the average kid would. However, it put a lot of stress on the young Isaiah, however, he would frequently be scolded for his mental breakdowns from overwork.
It went on like this for the next several years, even as he entered high school. It wasn't until then that things became more sinister, as his father began to teach him how to battle, semi-aggressively; which didn't seem very bad at first until the bigger picture came in. During this time period, he would ingrain into his son's brain tactics used within his other 'family', one that Isaiah would come to find was deemed more important than the man's blood family. Being indoctrinated into the mafia through a slow-boiling water method, it became rough for him.
Yet, he was showing promise. He would be praised for what he did right and scolded when he did wrong. His father's goal was to lead him into becoming the perfect successor to take over the family business. While this was something Isaiah was more than capable of doing, an accident between the two caused the entire plan to come to a screeching full throttle stop.
During a mission he had been assigned to, he witnessed something horrible. Something that made him sweat and break down as soon as he got back to HQ, something that broke out into an argument between him and his father. Effectively disowning his family, the organization, and having to be put on watch as a result of storming out on a mafia family.
From there Isaiah took up law and justice, assigning himself to become a ranger and trying to help people and protect both them and pokemon from injustices of criminals.
So, what about ultra beasts? His life had been so hectic, that he didn't really get too into it, except deciding to research them on the side. He's no researcher, he didn't plan on being one, but that was still a mystery he was ready to indulge himself in fully.
To unravel and destroy the criminal underbelly, to discover the secrets of the Ultra Beasts, to be able to settle down with a family.
5'9" / 175cm
Heaveset, sporting muscle
Isaiaih stands at 5 feet and 9 inches tall, with a far more toned and near-muscular physique. His hair is brown and kept short, either in a messy style or a cleaner more refined style. His skin is tanned, giving a complextion of someone who's naturally out in the sun most of their time, something that fits Isaiah quite well. His eyes are prominent with golden irises and a sleek cat-like design to them that make him stand out amongst a crowd. Scars mark his upper and lower abdomen from intense training practices, either from growing up or from his own accord testing out against pokemon moves.
A strong goldenrod with a brown gradient going further towards the center, where his body lies. It's pretty vibrant, almost ferocious in how it juts out.
